Guest Bio: Yol Swan, Author
Yol-SwanYol Swan grew up surrounded by books, art, and music, as well as a cultural blend of Shamanic and religious traditions. She sensed energies and spirits around her from a young age and could also see through people and perceive past lives, including many of her own. Her healing path has been a slow process of remembering who she is by shedding everything she is not, and now she can help others do the same.

Yol's spiritual journey started as a kid, pondering the meaning of life and rebelling against the limiting religious and patriarchal views of her Mexican environment. She felt awkward and alone for the most part, but always curious and creative, journaling cosmic messages she didn’t understand.

She dove into seven years of intense psychoanalysis in her early 20s, which became her springboard into spirituality. Exploring the past took Yol much further than she or her shrink ever anticipated, so she decided to renounce the world for a little while and went on a personal retreat for three years in almost complete isolation. Yol was touched by the Divine for the very first time through mystical experiences and unexpected encounters with multidimensional beings.

Yol began to comprehend the nature of the mind and ego, how our perception and energy shape reality and Infinite Consciousness weaves all life and human experience. Needless to say, this changed her completely, but it was just the beginning of a lifelong search for a deeper understanding and a sense of connection she longed for since childhood.

She was a highly sensitive seer, bearing the reality of a world that didn’t make sense to her, and it took her more than 30 years to realize she was an Adult Indigo Soul in desperate need of spiritual healing and that there were many other sensitive and creative empaths like her suffering the agonizing lack of love in the world.

Spiritual Healing: Release Your True Self
Yol Swan's book, The Indigo Journals, is half fascinating memoir and half guidebook for wayward Indigo and feminine souls.

The book follows her life from childhood in Mexico where she perceived herself as the unloved Ugly Duckling, through her world travels, personal relationships, mystical experiences, encounters with enlightened teachers, marriage to a controlling husband, the self-awareness spawned by motherhood and finally, her emergence as the fully empowered and renowned spiritual healer she is today.

What are Indigo Souls?

Indigo adults are feminine souls with certain masculine qualities. Their main traits are:

  • Highly sensitive, emotionally and otherwise
  • Receptive and intuitive, including a non-cognitive perception
  • Empathetic and compassionate
  • Drawn to metaphysical and spiritual subjects
  • Deeply connected to animals and nature
  • Highly creative and solution-oriented
  • Hungry for a deeper understanding
  • Bound to the truth
  • Non-linear, spherical thinking
  • Freedom-seeking nature
  • A stranger in a strange land, never seem to feel like you belong in the world or to your family of birth
  • Driven by a sense of purpose, and searching for that purpose
