My new book, Welcome Home, Wanderer, is now available!

This book is essentially a self help guide for those who identify as indigo, crystal, or similar. These people are “aliens on a mission”, intensely idealistic souls who often find it hard to come to terms with the way things work on this planet. As “indigo” is an inexact term, I also encourage use of the term “Wanderer” in my book.

You can read more about indigos/Wanderers here.

This book is for you if:

  • You think you may be indigo, but want more confirmation
  • You feel lost and don’t know how to move forward in life (and think these issues might be related to your being a Wanderer)
  • You want to connect more with the thoughts of another indigo person
  • You need to escape a harsh situation, such as is common for indigos in their awakening years
  • Just in general if you are a Wanderer – there is a lot of advice in this book that you might need, even if you didn’t know you needed it yet.

I talk about self identification, the use of labels, finding others like you, coming to terms with your feeling of not being at “home”, coming to terms with your power, coming to terms with the cruelty on Earth, and grounding, amongst other things.

Excerpt

Here is an excerpt from the beginning of the book. For how to buy, see below.

This is a spiritually-inclined book, but some value can be gotten from it if you don’t have spiritual beliefs.

If you have or are open to spiritual beliefs, we can define an indigo or Wanderer as a person who is “not from here”, whose soul, previous to this incarnation, existed in places of Light — places where compassion and kindness were the norm. They incarnate on this planet in order to help its evolution towards Light.

If you don’t believe in reincarnation, you can try viewing the indigo concept simply as a collection of traits which tend to appear together in certain individuals. They are driven, anti-authoritarian and deeply caring about the state of the world. Non-spiritually-inclined authors have written about these individuals, under the name “gifted children” or “The Edison Trait”.

This book refers to spiritual concepts and uses some information that comes from channelled sources. That said, in true indigo fashion, I will try hard to make it a no-bullshit book. Being into spiritual stuff doesn’t mean you can’t be skeptical and practical. I hope this book will satisfy even those who are rather jaded about the weirder aspects of the spiritual scene, just as I am.

PART ONE: AN INTRODUCTION

How I Became A Writer About Indigo People

Somehow, without expecting it, I’ve become something of an expert on indigo people.

Let me explain how this happened. When I was about eighteen I met my friend Christian, who identifies as indigo and who, after getting to know me for a while, decided that I must be indigo too.

My initial reaction was negative. I didn’t like to think myself better than others (as his description of indigo seemed to suggest) and I suppose I didn’t really like labels in general.

That said, over time Christian got through to me. I eventually realised that the indigo identification explained a whole lot about me, and gradually found myself becoming more comfortable in my own skin as my unusual traits started to seem more like positive things rather than strange and inexplicable flaws.

I began to look for other indigos. I’d place online classified ads, under the “friends” section, with a list of traits. I stuck up posters on the street for indigo workshops I was organising. I went to indigo meetups, such as I could find. I even had my then-girlfriend make a t-shirt with the word “INDIGO” on it in big capital letters, hoping it would start conversations.

Through this and my online life I came to know other indigos very well. I started to see patterns in their personalities and the problems which challenged them. When I wrote my article, “How To Tell If You Are Indigo” (www.sophiagubb.com/how-to-tell-if-you-are-indigo), I based it off my real life experience rather than rehashing what other people had written. Perhaps because of this originality, that article became very successful on Google and is to this day one of the biggest sources of traffic for my website, sophiagubb.com.

An interesting pattern I’ve seen in indigos is that once they’ve read my article, they tend to want to write me their entire life stories either in the comments or via a personal email. I’ve come to believe that indigos have an incredible need to be heard and understood, something which only another indigo can satisfactorily give them.

Seeing as I couldn’t reply to all of these emails without making it a full time job, I started offering counselling on my website. Not intuitive counselling – more like just conversation having, or listener being. Over a couple of years I did quite a few counselling sessions, which taught me even more about the indigo personality.

So, this is why I feel qualified to write this book. I’m not a channeller, and I don’t have a PhD in anything, but I do have a lot of experience with indigos, and importantly, I have a lot to say about them.

In fact, as this book is primarily targeted towards other indigos, to be exact I should say that I have a lot to say to you.

Terms

I think I have to start this book off with a discussion about terms.

“Indigo”, or rather “indigo children” is a term that came from the author Nancy Ann Tappe. Nancy Ann Tappe was a person who experienced synesthesia, and literally perceived people as having or being represented by different colours.
At one point, Nancy realised that a lot of new children being born were of an indigo hue. She mentioned them in her book, “Understanding Your Life Thru Colour”. Later, Lee Carroll and Jan Tober compiled a book called “Indigo Children: The New Kids Have Arrived”. I believe this book was what popularised the indigo children concept.
Now, in this book, there was a channeling from an entity named Kryon. This contained the list of traits which so many people felt identified with:
I believe these few lines started a movement, created a community (at least online) where many people finally felt like they could be understood and could understand themselves.
Now the main problem is that these people didn’t really fit Nancy Ann Tappe’s description of indigos. Particularly, Nancy said that indigos had suddenly started being born en masse at a certain date, and that all children born after a certain date were indigos. I’ve often said that if all kids nowadays were (Kryon) indigo, we’d be seeing non-violent demonstrations against imposed authority in all of our schools! Put that many system-busters together and what you have is a revolution. Oh, if only.

If you haven’t already guessed, I will be talking about Kryon indigos in this book. Nancy Ann Tappe’s version of indigos seems to be something entirely different to me, and irrelevant to what I want to talk about.

It’s strange to be using the name she invented because of nothing but an apparent misunderstanding, I know. But it’s hard to change now. Already, “indigo” is the accepted word for what Kryon described, and the only way I can reach those people is to use that word.

I will, however, be alternating the term “indigo” with the term “Wanderer” in this book. “Wanderer” is the word used in the Ra Channellings (The Law of One) to talk about what clearly seems to be the same thing as Kryon indigos. I’m hoping that by using “Wanderer” here, I can gently encourage others to transition into using this less misleading term.
