One of the challenges of being Indigo is the inability to find success in the daily grind. Indigos would rather starve than work at a soul crushing unfulfilling job.
In addition, we have an intolerance for incompetence and any kind of disharmony in the workplace.
So what are the best jobs for Indigos? Use your strongest attributes as a guide.
We are bold, strong, and confident. We have courage and are risk takers. We are persistent overachievers.
Being free to express ourselves fully is a necessity. Our aversion to authority makes it nearly impossible to work for other people, particularly those lacking in integrity, intelligence, and/or empathy. Thus, creating our own way is the pinnacle of success for an Indigo.
All Indigos have a vision.
We ache to carry them out and are smart enough to figure out how to do so. We are master innovators, pioneers, and trail blazers. We excel at taking unconventional routes. We will always find a way, we would rather die than not try. We are the ultimate entrepreneurs. Create your own job!
We are not immune to the occasional bouts of self-doubt, fear, and overwhelm. It's not easy putting yourself out there. It's hard when others don't support you. Being on the leading edge can be a lonely road. But if not us, than who? We need you and it's time to get going.
Ready, Set, Go!
We value integrity, are committed to serving others, and honestly want the world to be a better place.
Nothing spurs an Indigo into action quite like injustice. We are activists. We simply cannot just sit around and wait for someone else to come around and make things right.
We feel a sense of duty and urgency to protect those that need protecting and fight for those that don't have a voice. Indigos love a good cause and want to be part of the solution. Start a movement.
Working for a nonprofit organization, running for office, or a conscious corporation that gives back would be an ideal job for an Indigo. We want to be a part of something that makes a difference otherwise what's the point? We would rather live on the streets than help line the pockets of some miserable asshole.
Examples: Morris Dees, co-founder of the Southern Poverty Law Center; Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founder of the Special Olympics; Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood; Elizabeth Warren, U.S. Senator (D-MA).
Conscious Corporations: Surfrider Foundation, The Be Kind Project, TOMS, Whole Foods.
Indigos love a good mission. System busting is our forte. Nothing would bring us more pleasure than taking down a corrupt person or industry.
Of course the thought of working for a big bank, pharmaceutical company, a public official, or a corporation like Monsanto seems repulsive but just imagine being the one that destroys it from the inside.
Be the Trojan Horse.
Unfortunately, corruption is so rampant you don't even need to work for a well known violator. You can take down the little guys too.
Do your research, become an investigative journalist, just write, make a documentary exposing corruption, make Youtube videos to shed light on what people try so hard to keep in the dark.
We are so over greed, hypocrisy, and corruption. Do what's right!
Indigos are experts at breaking down inefficiency. They can see clearly how things can be done better. Become the better version of what you hate. In other words, become the change you wish to see in the world.
If you hate the way cops treat people, become a cop and set a new example. If you had shitty teachers, teach the way you would have learned better. If you had coaches that were assholes, be the coach you wish you had.
If you hate doctors that throw drugs at you after two minutes of talking to you, be the doctor that you want have. If you hate the direction of television, write the show you want to watch.
You get the picture.
Consider getting into the field that has caused you the most trauma and reform it. Your very presence will have a domino effect.
Indigo's innate intuitiveness and extrasensory abilities makes us natural healers. Acupuncture, Aromatherapy, Chakra Balancing, Reiki, and Theta Healing are just the tips of the ice berg.
Some of these techniques are being integrated with traditional practices such as chiropractic care and dentistry. Each technique is unique to its practitioner so try what you are drawn to, or develop your own healing modality tailored to your own particular strengths.
Indigos are artistic and highly creative. Ideas and images constantly course through us and require an outlet and release. We have an innate talent for music, art, writing, and/or acting.
Indigos would rather be "starving artists" doing what they love rather than having the perceived security that comes with doing something mediocre that they hate.
Set up an Etsy shop for your art. Sell your photographs in an online gallery. Start a blog. Write a screenplay. Get your music on Youtube. Go on an audition.
Be open to the possibilities. Take a chance.
You can get paid for doing what you love. Leave room for the unexpected. Don't give up on your dreams.
Do something unheard of and follow your bliss. Don't do what you're told to do. Don't do what you should do. Don't settle for mediocrity. Don't live to survive and get by.
