Well, it is all bunk :p
Personally, that is. Generally as a group Indigos share a lot of the same traits, problems and life challenges.
The exact same thing can be said of Astrology!
You know, if you are a Sagittarius then you share a lot of the same traits, problems and life challenges as other Sagittariuses. However, this does not put you in a box that says Sagittariuses only.
Indigo is a term used because that is the predominant color of an Indigo's aura. However, the term is kinda backwards. The person, in their being, has developed into an organism. Their aura is a part of that organism. The aura shows colors showing what that individual is working with. So your aura shows Indigo as its predominant color. Your aura is Indigo because of your being, not because you are an Indigo.
So, read up on Indigos. Learn what you can from books on Indigos. Take what you need and leave the rest. Most of typical Indigo's problems deal with feelings of being an outsider. They need to work out how to deal with the feelings of this, and build up tools for working with these... barbarians?
BTW, very very intelligent people have always had the same problem. You tell someone the earth goes around the sun, and you are misunderstood, scorned and excommunicated!
I've read a lot on indigos, in fact I've been reading about them for a couple of years, but remain obdurate in my sinking muck of old ways. Its not that I doubt all of this, it's more of a personality trait than blind skepticism. i.e. I like to argue.
I like to challenge and question everything, even my own beliefs and ideologies which in turn, is what brought me to this delightful juncture..
as far as astrology..meh..although some of the archaic infrastructure of astrology can be found in a lot of new age precepts.

[url:tugcedum]http://annafrancesconlan.com/[/url:tugcedum] is a "psychic counselor" of sorts. She's been recommended else where on the board. It's helped me a bit and may go back for more. I'm sure there's others out there too worth going to as well.
Personally, I wouldn't go near a shrink or any other mainstream help. I've met shrinks and shrink students and they have always been vampires and manipulators.
I've met some shrinks who had good intentions..not all of them suck.
but yeah, you're correct, a great number of them are far more disordered than their patients.
I'll take a peek at that link..thanks.
