Indigo Awakening by Dr. Janine Talty

From Amazon: Dr. Janine Talty, today a successful osteopathic physician, as a child found herself bewildered by a world full of challenges that she could not understand. She felt isolated, unable to cope with the regular life issues that other children managed easily. She could not comprehend math or spelling-yet she could see energies that others could not see, and had levels of awareness than no-one around her possessed. She exhibited unusual artistic and healing talent. She spontaneously remembered and drew pictures from 'old memories' of places her family had never visited. Only as she grew into adulthood, painfully learning to cope with her challenges, did she realize she was an 'indigo,' one of a generation of people with unusual talents and abilities, yet who rarely fit neatly into societal roles.This book is the inspiring story of how she overcomes these challenges, finds her voice and identity, and discovers a channel for her healing abilities as an osteopathic physician.

About the Author: Janine Talty, D.O., M.P.H. Is board certified in Family Medicine by the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians. She specializes in clinical biomechanics, orthopedic medicine, and Osteopathic manipulative medicine. She holds two masters degrees. The first in the field of Public Health, double majoring in Health Resources Management and Community Health Science from the University of Illinois at Chicago, School of Public Health and the second in Clinical Biomechanics from Michigan State University, College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Talty attended medical school at Des Moines University and completed her internship and residency in Family Medicine and fellowship in Clinical Biomechanics at Michigan State University.

My Thoughts: I've heard about the Indigo children for a number of years now. I found the book very interesting and I thought about it a lot. I am not sure what I believe but think that a lot of the book does make sense. The facts are that some children's (and adults') minds work differently from the norm, and you can't put them all into one group. I think anyone with a child that does not fit the norm, should read this book. Overall I think the book was good and very informative.
