Dr. Talty has written one of the most exceptional books I have ever read on Indigo children and adults. It is revealing, drives ones curiosity and makes readers wonder how we could misread individuals so much.

Written through her own life experiences, it details the life that Indigo's live on a daily basis, as no one understands them. It really breaks my heart to read how the general public and education system places those who dance to a different drummer in the misunderstood category and places children in the special education system.

Each chapter of this book explains how Indigo individuals see the world and how others respond to them. It really is as if you were sitting in the room with the author and she was having a conversation with you. She writes just as if she were talking directly to you. She then gives examples in her own life of what she was saying.

Indigo children and adults are advanced in their thinking, they see in 3-D, which is why they often have trouble excelling in school in the current way it is taught. They have natural talents in music, art and sciences. They can communicate with others without words. The author discusses past lives and how before one can truly find their mission on earth, they must first learn the ways of the Universe. The goal of Indigo's is to correct the imbalances that humans have created from greed and lack of concern beyond their own needs.

As a prior teacher, I have always felt there were children who worked out of a different wave length and were much more in-tune with the world, animals and healing. A friend of mine who is also a teacher says she has had Indigo children in her class and they are a challenge.

The author, in her own words and detailed accounts, gives the readers a true insight into the world of Indigo children and adults. I'm sure many people will find this book to be unbelievable and possibly bunk, but as a psychologist for over twenty-five years, I am a firm believer in Indigo children and adults. You may not, at this point believe, but once you have read "Indigo Awakening" by Dr. Janine Talty, DO, you will question and you will see these unique individuals.
