2011: The Year of the Indigo

At the end of each year, I sit in quiet silence and connect with the presence of the mighty Archangel Michael, and ask him for messages about the coming year. I hear his answers as clearly as if I were having a conversation with a wise teacher. I find Archangel Michael to be the loudest and clearest angel of them all.

I recorded the messages on a free video which I have posted on YouTube, if you’d like to watch or listen here

Here’s a summary of the conversation:

Archangel Michael conveys themes and messages regarding each year, usually related to what he’s guiding us to work upon. For 2011, Michael conveyed that it is a year where:

* Indigos will step out of their comfort zone and take on important leadership roles. Indigos are strong-willed individuals who are highly-sensitive to energies. Indigos have an accurate barometer as to whether someone is in integrity or not, because they have an inner truth-detector. And Indigos TRUST what they feel. Congratulations, Indigos: 2011 is YOUR year!

* 2011 is very supportive for changing careers, especially for those who are opening their own business. He said that the world economy will continue to improve.

* He asked us to lose any thoughts or beliefs of victimhood, and to empower ourselves (he will help if you ask).

* He did say that there will be a military escalation and build-up and he asked those who are guided to speak up and make their opinions known publicly. Don’t be shy! Remember the Dr. Seuss book, “Horton Hears a Who,” about the one little person whose voice saved the planet. And Indigos, we’re especially counting upon you to speak up!

* He said that environmentalism and connecting with nature are essential in 2011. He asked us to spend a lot of time outdoors, and to take personal steps to help the environment, such as recycling, reducing, and reusing. He also said that those who’d like environmentally-related careers will do well in 2011.

* Archangel Michael emphasized that some people will be afraid as we near 2012. He’s assured me that 2012 is just like Y2K: a non-event. It is NOT the end of anything. The Mayans would have continued their calendar, but they were interrupted abruptly and had to vacate their villages where they were working on this project. However, we will see an increased focus upon spirituality this year (just like we did in 1999), by those who want to get their life in order “just in case.” He likened it to: “There are no atheists in a foxhole” effects. The bottom line was that he appealed to us to stay centered in LOVE and give any worries to God, the ascended masters (i.e., Jesus), and the angels.

* 2011 will be a very positive year for the majority of people, especially after the February 3 New Chinese Year. He said that the “Year of the Tiger” really did have an aggressive effect on the world, and that the new “Year of the Rabbit” will be more peaceful. Rabbit years are filled with a lot of industrious activity, which fits with Michael’s guidance for us to take guided action to help with issues that are important to us. He said a few times, “He who hesitates is lost,” and that there will be many windows of opportunities opening that we must walk through as they appear.

* Everything happens exactly as it is supposed to, including the seemingly negative and painful things that you’ve endured. Ask your angels to find the hidden lessons and blessings within each event, relationship, and situation, and they’ll help you to find peace and understanding.

* Most of all, he emphasized for us to ENJOY this moment, no matter what. Embrace and inhale the pleasure, joy, and divine perfect of each and every minute. And remember that you can always call upon Archangel Michael for support, courage, protection, and guidance. He’s completely unlimited and can help everyone who calls upon him simultaneously.

Happy New Year with love, Doreen

Such soft, gentle news. My husband, dog, and I are so ready for it. I am officially asking Archangel Michael to come into our lives and assist and comfort us. We are in a fairly dire situation and need divine assistance. Thank you Archangel Michael and lovely Doreen.

I am Indigo born 1961 and this message rings true with me. Thank you for describing and recounting your communication. I also feel that this year is about revealing ourselves to the world and ourselves and that transparencies will be more prevelant. What is not clear will be cleared. 2010 was about BALANCE and 2011 is about moving into DIVINE PURPOSE for many of us. WATER is the theme. Hail Hail Creation of Light, all is LOVE.

nice message! but, i have to disagree about 2012. This is anything but Y2K which was man made. And if THE economy is improving the way it is, don't we distroy our mother earth that much faster?

A beautiful message from Arch Angel Michael. I love your work and words Doreen. Always so insightful and helpful. I whole-heartedly agree, having recently learnt the ability myself, that we must try not to succumb to the ego-based fears of this 2012 hype. Only by choosing good-feeling thoughts and actions based in truth (love and joy) can we transcend our own limitations and fulfil our true potential. I really do believe everything is perfect, and nothing is in danger. That is coming from the most intense, emotional, roller-coaster year of my life. All is well and will be well, the Earth, our selves, our hopes, our dreams. The main event... we are awakening to our true nature and the illusory ego-perception is scared so projects fear. So thank you Michael and Doreen and in this moment, I send love to anyone who reads this and all who do not.

Love, Joy and Thanks,

Matthew x

I've only just joined here and read this...but how spookily apt for me!I am strongly Indigo and this year, under promptings through the Archangel Oracle pack, I opened a website called Indigo Readings where I offer people help to find their way in life, and how to feel fully awake to their purpose!
I am also opening more and more to channelling with the help of my Dad. I feel like years of spiritual growing are now coming to fruition and I can at last offer others help, support and guidance.

Thank you for posting this, Doreen.

The Year of the Indigo article has been such a help and comfort to me, as this was the year I realized who and what I am on this planet. I wrote my autobiography this year, which was a real journey within a journey; ending this year with a greater understanding of my planet, my universe and myself.

Doreen, I'm certain you are familiar with my publisher, Balboa Press through Hay House. Such blessings this year.

Thank you for all that you do. You continue to improve our world.
