E.V., Phone Home
On the Path of Healing with Adult Indigos
Lots of lists in books and on the web describe Indigos and Pre-Indigos.
I know them from the E.V. Phone Home Syndrome. Thats right. Its
not a typo. E.V., PHONE HOME. E.V. = Expanded Version of the Human Being.
My business partner Ronda Mau and I do energy psychotherapy. We work
with the body, mind, energy system and spirit to help people on their
journey to wholeness and balance in the world. About 18 months ago,
we began to notice something dramatic. Something new. A new kind of
client: Relatively young, exquisitely sensitive to the energy of themselves
and others, idealistic, highly intuitive, feeling abnormal and alone,
preoccupied with finding purpose and mission in life.
These clients were a joy to work with. They were unusually perceptive
and aware, could cogently identify what was going on inside, utilize
intention to make rapid and permanent changes, perceive clearly the
shifts in the energy body which occur, tap into knowledge and awareness
coming from the spiritual dimension.
All we could say was "wow." Something new was happening on
the earth. We were becoming less the expert teachers and more partners,
coaches and co-creators. They were teaching us as much as we were teaching
them. Thats when we coined the term "E.V.," Expanded
Version, New Human.
Before long, we began to see a common pattern. 100% of these individuals
shared a life experience: They carried intense traumatic reactions associated
with incarnating as a human being. 100%. "What was I thinking when
I chose to come here?" "I didnt know it would be this
Incarnating is coded in the energy bodies of E.V.s as a shock:
shock to experience the grossness of human form; shock to encounter
low-vibrational energies and emotions; shock to come in to the physical
and spiritual toxicity that shrouds our planet.
I am reminded of the British sage C.S. Lewis and his space fantasy
Out of the Silent Planet. In the book, a human named Ransom visits
a planet called Malacandra and finds there a highly evolved form of
sentient being called an "eldil." "The body of an eldil
is a movement swift as light; you may say its body is made of light,
but not of that which is light for the eldil. His light
is a swifter movement which for us is nothing at all; and what we call
light is for him a thing like water, a visible thing, a thing he can
touch and bathe in
.And what we call firm things flesh and
earth seem to him thinner, and harder to see, than our light,
and more like clouds, and nearly nothing." (pp 94-95, 1965 First
What happens when eldils, or something like them, become human beings?
Great shock. Great conflict.
I am a psychotherapist, trained to understand humans from a developmental
perspective. What happens over the lifespan as this phenomenon occurs?
I am learning as I listen.
In the womb: The developing fetus E.V. is bombarded by the toxins
in earths environment, coming through the placental barrier. The
emotions of mom sometimes full of sadness, pain, anger and other
emotional hurts become the air in which he or she takes form.
There is shock. There is taking on valiantly the job to make mom and
the world better. There is toxicity of all sorts. Allergies and sensitivities
develop. It is too much. The job is too big.
Ages 2 and 3: This is the age of defining ones self against
the environment, having a voice, finding ones power. The E.V.
has immense power of perception and awareness. What happens when he
or she tries to express it? "I tried to find out if I had any power.
I wasnt allowed to have it. I was like a wild bird not allowed
to fly." Again, see the conflict. How can I make mom and the family
better, save the world, if I am earthbound?
Age 5 and 6: In our culture this is when the birds leave the
nest, when children go off the school and begin to define themselves
in the bigger social environment. Enter the E.V.: unique, marching to
a different drummer, oblivious to social norms and cues. Again, feel
the shock. "I felt like I was among aliens from another planet.
Later, by the time I was 9 or 10, it shifted. I was the alien. They
were the normals. And there was no way to phone home."
Teenage years: As you might guess, this deviation from "normal"
becomes intensely painful as the E.V. reaches adolescence. Another emerging
issue creates even more conflict. It is about this time in the life
cycle that E.V.s realize it is not going to work to save the world.
There is too much pain, too much darkness, too much confusion. Their
big, beautiful, caring hearts may become closed off. "My heart
is a big empty cathedral. There are no doors or windows." Depression
sets in. Suicidal thoughts may emerge. It is too much.
Twenties and Thirties: This is the age when Ronda and I are
meeting the E.V. We find them to be a little dazed, shell shocked by
the journey on earth thus far. And we see both their hope and frustration
about accomplishing their purpose on earth: "Im not just
here to fill up space. In my heart I know Im destined for something
great. I know I have potential, but something is not sparking it."
It was a 25-year-old E.V. who taught me how to find the spark. We had
been working on all the ways she was scrambled energetically. The energetic
scrambles kept her from focusing, from putting her remarkable power
of intention to the task of finding her way in the world. "I can
tell now when Im energetically or neurologically disorganized.
I realize that I stay in this state on purpose. Its too overwhelming,
too scary, to be on-line to my power."
Every E.V. we have worked with has these scrambled energies at some
point or another. Our work has been to help heal the trauma, resolve
the conflicts, get the remarkable powers of perception and awareness
of the E.V. on-line with the who they truly are. When that happens,
the cosmic computer lines hook up. The sparks ignite. Potential becomes
reality. E.V. PHONES HOME.
Can you imagine what will happen when more and more of these beautiful
souls come into their power? The Light coming into our planet will be
stunning, transformative. For now, I thank the Divine Presence daily
for the gift of partnering with these expanded beings. Every day is
