There are many reasons why you may feel unique. Could you or someone you know be part of the Indigo generations?

The following article will answer many questions you have about indigo children and will help you find the “miracle children” in your close circle. One of the most renowned researchers of this New Age phenomenon is Ms. Lori Johnson, who worked on the Indigo generations in an almost scientific manner and divided them into five categories according to the date of birth of these children.

Alpha Generation

The first generation, which was called Alpha, includes children born in the period between 1958 and 1968. The period of the awakening of the Alpha generation was from 1986 until 1996. Their aura was seen as dark blue and green with purple shades.

The aura was also under the influence of the metallic beige hue, protecting them from external attacks and excessively early showing of indigo potential. Since early childhood, the Alpha had a feeling of being different, as if they did not belong to their home, country or parents. The reasons for these differences were always vague and never provided a satisfactory explanation.

Beta generation

They are people born in the period between 1968 and 1978. The period of their awakening coincides, roughly, with the period between 1996 and 2006. The colors of their aura are blue – green – purple, but no longer the color of the metal shield.

A typical feature of both generations, Alpha and Beta, is that they look much younger than they actually are.

Gamma Generation

The Gamma is the third generation of Indigo children, born between 1978 and 1988. The period of intellectual awakening of these children coincides with the period between 2006 and 2016. This is the first generation with the minimum protective shield. It is usually purple with markings of ocher or a crystal color.

Delta Generation

These children are born between 1988 and 1998. One of the characteristics of the fourth generation is the pure indigo color of the aura. The period of maturation and spiritual awakening of the delta generation coincides with the period from 2016 until 2026.

This generation is too sensitive and needs plenty of help. These people are overactive and quite extroverted. They like to show the world who they really are and often do this with great self-confidence. In their environment, they want blue and purple colors and enjoy slow music. They avoid crowded places and anything that causes nervousness.

The Delta generation usually has difficult teenage years. Many of these kids think that something is wrong with them, they may dabble with drugs or have suicidal tendencies. The best remedy for them is Nature.

Omega generation

Children born between 1998 and 2008 belong to the so-called Omega indigo generation. Supposedly this is the last “pure” indigo generation. This generation will experience the “Dark Night of Awakening” from 2026 until 2036.

Children born in the Delta and Omega period, are also called Crystal Children because of a particularly bright, crystal color in their aura.

These children are particularly vulnerable to various dermatology problems, allergies, and diseases (especially to those of upper respiratory tract due to high environmental pollution). Also, a large proportion of them are characterized as autistic or suffers from the Asperger syndrome. Autism in children is a way of self-protection from attack and neurosis of the outside world.

The Awakening of Indigo

For each of the indigo generations, the process of awakening begins around the age of 28-29 years and lasts about 7.5 years. The “Dark Night of Awakening” is a period that can be particularly difficult because it is the final return of an indigo person to their mission in this life. This period is full of different problems and various difficult challenges.

In the mature age (37 – 39), the recovery and prosperity of psychic abilities begins. Until then, this person had enough time to finally learn to trust their psychic powers without being startled or trying to share their experiences with others.

These internal experiences may include: having a clear insight, direction and possible internal communication with the spirit world; the ability to read thoughts, feelings, and intentions of others; understanding the parallel levels of reality; a true insight into the nature of time.

Maybe you are an indigo child, or adult who realizes this may have been your destination. You may not have realized the awakening as it was happening. Maybe you just know someone who is part of the Indigo generations. Whatever the case, this may be the real reason you or someone you love feels different. After all, it’s the unique qualities of these individuals that proclaim who they really are.

    I tend to disagree with the age of when an awakening might find place.

    Beta Indigo who had several mind opening experiences at the age of 19. When I also received a signpost for my purpose and task.
    The time after that has been a roller coaster ride. With a small narrator inside of me repeating what my ex. fiance once said: “Everything is just a story, to you, isn’t it?
    Now, I realize that all my travels and hardships has been different pieces of a puzzle. And it all had a purpose. That there is no such thing as a coincidences.
    Now, I seem to be getting a 2nd awakening…

    Replacing old systems and mindsets seem to be my focus these days. .

      It depends of many things, I’m a beta indigo and everything matches for me perfectly.

    I was born 1983 but from the description it rather fits the last wave of indigos. May there be the possibility that an early indigo can transform into a crystal child ? I was much more rebellious when I was younger. Now I am softer and more sensitive. I am still young but my awakening was when I was 25 even though I had medial abilities when I was a child I knew that I was different and I even thought I was adopted. If someone can answer my question I would be really happy about it.

    I’m an Alpha. I began my awakening way before the age mentioned. I fought the purpose & found signposts all along my life journey. I’ve been helping younger (& same) generations understand what it means to be Indigo for quite a while. I have an Indigo son and he has been comfortable in his “Indigo-ness” for many years.
    Having a home that understood the feelings of an Indigo helps so much.
    To each one of you reading my comment, I thank you. Know you’re not alone. The feelings as awakening occurs are “normal” for us. Find your purpose, your talents & develop them for the good.

    I’m an alpha Scorpio, with a cancer moon, and the life-quote I came up with for myself at age 51, after years of my intellect battling it out with my highly intuitive, and empathic, introverted self, is this… “I don’t know how I know, I just do.”
    Now, I’m not sure about the dates, or even the 5 generations, but I do know this; If you are an indigo empath of any kind, you’ve been called to task, and the universe, or God, if you prefer, has been preparing you your whole life and making sure you have “tough” skin, by way of numerous false accusations, betrayals by those whom you’ve truly loved, you’ve been ostracized, regardless of your true genuine kindness and desire to bring healing in every aspect of the word. You’ve been cast out, set aside, minimized, and marginalized, and still cannot find it in you to hold a grudge or even stay angry for any considerable amount of time. If asked what you hate, unilaterally the answer is the same; “Injustice” of any kind.
    All of this has been in preparation of the war that’s soon to come, as the dark forces of the universe have covertly made their way over the centuries to places of governmental power, and these demoniacs, who go by the monikers such as sociopath, narcissist, psychopath, and a few others, who unjustly set innocent ones, brothers and sisters of ours at an early age, into abusive situations, to sear their consceince, and destroy their empathic ability, while retraining their powerful minds to perpetuate heinous spiritual crimes against their own kin. The war of eternity is now in its infancy, and lines are being drawn, and at this point it’s already been decided which side of these lines each is situated, and we now wait with bated breath for the final horn to blow, signifying the beginning and ultimately the end of either darkness, or in the minds of the sinister, the end of light. So, children of the light, remember the love you knew as a child and put away the pettiness set in place to hold you to a material and/or prideful stance and stature, or you will find too late, you’re on the wrong side of the lines that have been drawn.

    You say the first indigo’s were born in 1958. This is incorrect. I am an indigo and was born in 1955. I knew as a child but then life took over. I was in my late 40s before I awoke and remembered who I am and why I came here. I won’t go into detail as it would take too long here but please know we were here before 1958

    Thank You. This information makes me laugh. I did not know about the tendency to be late bloomers, or have intense difficulty with the outside world because of hyper sensitivity. That’s not to say hyper sensitivity and damned, but hyper sensitive and unaware of our powers, or ability to drive a ferrari at 200mph, and multi-task, so to speak. I love you. Thank you for doing this research. I welcome any insights you wish to share with us.

    From what I’ve come to understand, the first wave of Indigos/starseeds/lighworkers, whatever you want to call them, arrived on Earth soon after 1945, when the powers that be (were) set off the first atomic bomb. Gaia put out a cry for help, and benevolent forces from the higher dimensions began to send in volunteers. .

    I am sure I’m an Alpha or Beta, born 1968. NO ONE believes I am nearly 50. No one. I often feel I don’t fit in this world, I don’t recognise most humans as the same creatures as me, they don’t seem to have the same goals, interests, even thoughts as me. They seem to be avaricious, violent, selfish, they don’t notice other people’s feelings or needs. I don’t want to sound like I’m pretending to be a saint but that is the opposite of me! I notice everything and feel all feelings I come into contact with. What can I do to feel better?
