World Indigo Day was celebrated Saturday, January 29th, with worldwide premiere screenings of “Indigo,” the movie created by James Twyman, Neale Donald Walsch, and Stephen Simon. I had bought my tickets a few weeks earlier and brought some friends along with me.
I had been hearing about this movie for well over a year and was curious as to what I would see on the screen. I had been reading about indigo children for awhile, and had suspected from the start that I might be one of the “indigo adults” — indigo souls who have incarnated as “scouts” and “trailblazers” for the larger soul group that was to follow. I was glad that such a film would immediately reach such a wide audience with its message of not just acceptance of these kids, but celebration of the gifts they bring.
“Indigo” is the story of a family in crisis, and of the little girl at the center who shines light into the darkness.
The first part of the movie is pretty rough — the writing, acting, and pacing are all not what they could have been. I was getting pretty uncomfortable in my seat, afraid that the whole movie would be like this, with the stilted dialog, and the “tell me” (vs. “show me”) style. But then it got much, much better. Sure, the dialog and writing still could have used some help, and there remained “blurts” throughout (too much information shot out all at once), but “Indigo” had finally gotten down to the business of exploring its own spiritual message. It was a lot of fun from that point forward.
I went to see this movie with my mother and two of her friends. One of these ladies that had been sitting next to me leaned over during the closing credits and asked me how far back had the first indigo souls started appearing. We had had a brief discussion over dinner about how, with any new soul group getting ready to come through, there are always some “scouts” that are sent in ahead of time (I had used the military metaphor of sending soldiers out on reconnaissance). This is the same woman who followed Thanksgiving dinner at her home by having each guest lie on the floor while she played a tibetan singing bowl on our stomachs. A lot of the movie really resonated for the two of us, and it wouldn’t surprise me if we’re both indigos, of the “trailblazer” variety.
See this movie if you can, and don’t be discouraged by the first twenty minutes or so. It will be worth it.
