A Note from Autism

I want you to see what I see and hear what I hear. I want you to feel the texture of the air on your face the way I do. I want you to know that sometimes you think I’m not responding because I am checking in with all of the data-bases in my head to decide how to best share with you.

 

Sometimes I need alone time for that. Sometimes I need to dance my body, shake my hands, spin, hum, chew on something or even make noises that are weird to you. I cannot help that I am so full of information to share, nor can I help that you don’t already have a means for understanding my ways.

 

But, I’ll tell you what, if you look and listen you will see what I mean. If you try, you can clearly see that I am always responding to you. Always. That I am always trying to communicate with you. I don’t care if you don’t like me or think I’m weird. That is not my concern. But, I did come here with a message and if you don’t get it, none of us will feel accomplished.

 

It doesn’t matter how I got this way. Maybe I came here this way. Maybe I came to open you up to something more magical than you have ever imagined. Maybe I came to show you how to heal yourself and your planet. Our planet. Maybe I come from a place I remember dearly and wish to retain many of my own customs. I certainly did not come here to conform. But, that doesn’t mean I don’t have things to learn. Show me how I can feel better in my body. Show me how I can embrace my path even deeper. Show me how I can have more fun and feel more successful.

 

 

And, Mom and Dad,

 

I want to feel good.  I really do. I might fight things I don’t understand because I’ve had to create boundaries for my own safety. Sometimes my body, mind and spirit are not in alignment. It’s difficult to explain. But please please don’t give up on me. Soon,  you will be able to understand what I’m fighting over fear and what my body is actually rejecting. I chose you because I trust that you will find the right help just for me. Maybe it’s new foods. Maybe it’s a different way of thinking. But, I know we will find it. I know you can help me feel better. And, you already have.

 

Every time I look into your eyes, I see your heart. And, I remember why I chose you. One day, I’ll show you how to do that too.

 

Thank You!

Autism and Reiki: How to do Energy Healing at Home

20120525-192237.jpgWe healed our family from severe autism, seizure disorder, candida, food allergies and many other health imbalances with something more than just diet. In fact, Doug, who was a skeptic about the nutritional aspect of our healing at first — jumped right on board after he had a profound physical shift with energy work. Within five minutes of distance healing, his previously shattered shoulder bones physically moved back into place. That was 7 years ago. We now use energy work every day. And we keep finding new reasons for needing it and new ways to use it. Read more

Hello Lovelies,

Today’s Post comes from my Friend, Client, Soul Sister, and fellow autism Advocate.  If you haven’t already checked out the amazing Thinking Mom’s Blog, where she contributes…. do it today.

The idea of “Spiritual Stimming,” represents most of my work to help heal autism. When our kids stim (repetitive behaviors like hand-flapping and spinning), there is a reason. It is natural for them. These movements and habits are meant to bring them into balance.

Spirtitual Stimming, By Guest Blogger: Princess

So, in the day-in-day-out reality of living with a child on the spectrum, do you ever stop and think to yourself, there’s got to be more to this? I mean, at the very least, those of you who believe in God or a higher power must have trouble settling for the idea that autism is merely toxic exposure and the result of corporate greed. This is not to say that it isn’t both of those things, but beyond that – if you believe in God, like I do, then you must often ask yourself more personal questions – why YOU? Why your child? What lessons are you supposed to take from this experience? After all, I don’t know about you, but the God that I like to believe in is loving, caring and wants my very best. I remember really struggling with this in the past – looking at my son and then being unable to fathom how there could be anything good about his autism. How come I got stuck with this terrible tragedy?

Lately, I actually focus way more time on all of its blessings for me. And do you want to know why I do this? I absolutely, consciously and intentionally choose to because every moment is like a new choice all over again. I do this because I don’t like the way the alternative makes me feel. On days where I lose sight of many of these ideas, I feel sad, depressed and like a victim. On the days where I can remind myself of the bigger picture, I feel hope, limitless, excitement. Best of all? It usually opens up a channel, opportunity or possibility that I didn’t have before with my son. Staying committed to comfort and happiness no matter the situation is something that has completely saved me from my past self.

So, as I already design my destination (happiness, finding opportunity with my lot), how do I then build a case full of evidence to support this destination? I have spent hours and hours and hours creating beliefs to support this goal and pondering the purpose for it all. I can’t say I know the ‘right’ answer, nor will I ever with certainty, but using my imagination gives me so much solace and excitement for the future.

I also look to the past and the present to build my case for meaning. I still find pieces from six months ago that are only starting to click now in my life. What a shame it would have been for me to spend the last six months miserable only to now find that there was a purpose for the situation when I could have trusted in this principle from the start and remained trusting of God and the universe that they too had a purpose for my benefit and stayed comfortable all this time?

Some helpful questions I have asked myself are:

  • What can I learn from my son?
  • What is he here to teach the world?

  • How is this experience perfect for me right now?

  • How do I explain his behaviors as meaningful?

Living the persona of victim didn’t really give me an empowered feeling. These questions take the power away from the ‘damage done to me’ to a personalized, specific and intentional path designed just for me by God. And adopting these beliefs doesn’t mean that I don’t stand up for what matters to me anymore either – all it means is that I take the control back by how I respond.

As I’ve created this blueprint for living for myself, I am constantly on the look-out for new opportunities and significance to my life and my son’s autism all the time. Recently, while participating in a guided mediation at a personal development program at the Option Institute, I was instructed to rock back and forth during the meditation where I then addressed God or the Universe for answers to some of my questions (in a series with other repetitious exclusive behaviors). While doing this, I immediately was reminded of my son and his stims or ISMs. I let go into the meditation and allowed my body to sway to its own rhythms, tuning into my core. This was different than the experiences I’d had joining my son (See video on joining here)  in his ISM because it was entirely my own! I moved to my own tempo, intensity and could change the rhythm as I pleased to deepen my connection to myself and to God. I marveled during this experience how deeply spiritual it felt and immediately imagined that all my son’s ISMs were actually his own meditations, tapping into the creator. Wow! What a shift! I now not only saw them as something he needed to do to help himself physically and mentally but now spiritually, too!

Here is an excerpt from a recent blog post I wrote on this experience:

“As we drummed, I shared in the exquisite beauty of his looks to the light peering through our open window, in the midst of the storm – the branches and leaves being heavily swayed by the powerful wind. We looked together and marveled – I could feel God with my son…In the course of two minutes in my mind, by believing that the cause is in the future, I created so much meaning and intention to joining and the experience was wildly different than any other session we’ve ever shared in the playroom. I could feel his real joy at including me and instead of me just attempting to join him in his world, he truly did invite me in. He gave me flashes of smiles of worlds of understanding, occassionally would reach over and beat on my drum too and during one precious moment, relaxed onto the cushioned padding in the corner of the room, assuredly, knowing I’d follow him and as I did, and we both laid in a 90 degree angle with our respective drums, he had the most all-knowing and peaceful smile I’d ever seen. We directed our bodies toward the cracks in the windows and played to God as we watched the branches dance before us.”

This time when I entered my son’s special playroom and joined him in his ISMs, it took on a whole new meaning. I joined him… but truly truly joined him, taking myself back my own experience of ISMing, and our souls danced together! How amazing that I could build such closeness with this special soul gifted to me and to also see it as such a gift!

Now, this could be completely made up – I have no ‘proof’ that this is what he’s doing when he’s exclusive and repetitious, but when I went into his playroom with this belief, he was so much more open and receptive to me – so, either way, it’s here to stay! Am I ignorant for being okay with that? Absolutely not – I am staying true to my #1 goal of being happy with him and my life in this moment by adopting this belief. Nobody is pulling a swift one on me – I am jumping in head first knowing full well that it’s entirely made up by me and not looking back because the end-result feels so good. I already lived life trying to have proof for all my beliefs and it led me to a life of misery and disconnectedness from my son. How can you make up a belief for why your child’s ISMs are amazing or intended to teach you something?

My case is not closed, but I have collected a lot of evidence since I decided to open it for why God brought me this special little guy. He is not just one of the many canaries in the coal mine for our world. He is also MY canary … destined for me specifically — helping me turn my heart and soul into a glistening gold mine.

Or maybe not…?

Hmmm :)

So now’s your chance – you get to decide too.

Coal or gold? What’s it gonna be?

:)

Forget GMOs, Take Back Your Health — Ferment Stuff (Fermented Foods Videos)

I got pretty fueled about prop 37. This “opportunity” we had to label GMO food meant (to me) that my friends and family who are not already in the loop about the dangers of these genetically modified foods– would be given a clearer choice.

But, last I checked… the proposition didn’t pass.

So, I want to share with you some simple things you can do to take back your health. Because you are always in control of what goes into your body, and you always have the opportunity to make clear, informed choices.

What Are GMOs, Really?

Pretty much every fruit, vegetable, meat and grain that we put into our mouths has somehow been manipulated by humans to taste and grow a specific way. This is called “farming.” Simply put — wild, natural foods are different than farmed foods. Farming, over time, has changed the way that we humans eat and has changed the quality of our health and soil. All is as it should be. But, this did happen. As part of our free-will, we gave up our wild-natural side, learned how to control things and made our mark on planet Earth. And, I feel we have done amazing things. I am grateful for technology and science.

Genetically Modified Foods or “GMOs” as considered in Proposition 37 refers to the deliberate manipulation of food cells, splicing fruit cells with those of animals, for example, to get a specific effect. Currently, the public statements are that GMO foods help food last longer and require less human work to maintain. They are resistant to bugs and spoilage. And, that they are essentially freaken awesome and you don’t need to know much more about them. But, the independent media has done an outstanding job spreading the truth. The Obamas have an “organic garden” but wouldn’t publicly endorse our right to eat clean and organic. It’s not sad. It’s empowering. It means it’s time to wake up learn for ourselves about what is good and healthy to eat. It means educating those around us and UNDERSTANDING that during this time of huge change, we may all be in different places. We may have different opinions. The illusion here would be that there is some kind of enemy. We are all one. Remember that as you dig in to discover what is right for you.

GM food enthusiasts boast about things like ending world hunger and reducing diseased plants. And, they’ve recently spent millions of dollars pre- election day, bombarding the US with commercials and ads (thank Goddess I don’t watch TV… but my FB page was inundated) about why their wonder foods don’t need to be labeled and why you don’t need to know when you’re eating them.

In order for these foods to be pest-resistant, their seeds are infiltrated with toxins. Neuro-toxins and others. We now have a genetically modified corn that can make people sterile as well. What kills off plant invaders also enters our bodies as part of the food. What do you think it does to us?

Funny thing is that these pest-resistant plants don’t require less pesticides. They haven’t ended world hunger. And, the planting of monoculture commodity crops are not going to feed people in need. So much of them are being used to feed factory-farmed animals. Since when do cows need to eat soy or corn? Monocultures (1 crop farms) create imbalance in the soils, reduce the Earth’s natural ability to heal herself, and therefore require more work to get rid of pests and the like. We are left with soil that is very mineral deficient.

It’s difficult for the public to get a handle on the safety of such foods when the research on them is…… well, where the heck is it?

Fortunately, recently Dr. Joe Mercola shared some very valid detrimental facts regarding the consumption GMOs in rats. We find them causing tumors and cancer quite quickly. I’ve tested these foods on myself both knowingly and unknowingly. I get almost immediate heart pain when I consume genetically modified corn. My son gets red hot skin and a rapid heart beat. He is someone who has recovered from autism and he’s very sensitive to the unnatural. And, it is my belief that autism is perpetuated by the continued “effing” of Nature that we do through our food and water system (and all of the “systems”).

If you read about codex alimentarius, you will understand that the idea of population control and mind control through our food system is a real concept that has been used by Hitler and perpetuated by the same people who promoted concentration camps. Our bodies respond accordingly to what we consume. Things like fluoride in your water and UN-nutrition in your GM food literally block your joy response, make you complacent, and attack your natural intuitive power at your pineal gland. This is a physical brain reaction to franken-foods.

But, like I said, all as it should be. You now have the power to turn things around and create a ripple.

One Awesome Solution: Eat Fermented (Cultured) Food

The Recipes:

Garlic Mania

Garlic is such a wonderful antibiotic/anti fungal and so much cheaper than most other supplements out there.

You can decide to use this as medicine… or as a probiotic addition to salad dressings, dips and sandwiches or both.
Ingredients:

5-10 heads of garlic peeled (whole cloves separated)

½ cup each of olive oil, coconut oil, raw apple cider vinegar

1 tsp raw honey

1 packet each of kefir and culture starter or 1/4 cup coconut kefir

Glass jar with lid

Blender

Optional add-ins hot pepper, dried olive leaf, dried oregano

Process:

Blend oils with vinegar and honey

Stir in cloves of garlic

Add starters

Ferment for up to 30 days+

The garlic gets softer and easier on the palate. You can eat whole cloves, and use the oil in dressings or to ferment more garlic.

Cultured Cacao-Wows

As much as I love chocolate, it never really sat right with me until I started to ferment it. It’s acid-forming in the body and can feed candida. I found this to be a really satisfying and non- addictive way to enjoy chocolate, as well as a great way to hide supplements if you have to.
Ingredients:

2 ½ cup raw organic cacao

2 ½ cup cacao butter

½ cup – 1 cup coconut sugar

1 tbsp Vitamineral Green powder or your favorite whole-food multi-mineral food powder

1 packet Body Ecology kefir starter or 1 packet Body Ecology culture starter or 1 tblsp of Coocnut kefir

Glass jar or bowl with lid

Candy molds of choice

Blender

Add ins: sea salt, cacao nibs, and mesquite; cherries, cayenne and sea salt; maca, mesquite and lucuma, cinnamon, maca, mesquite and lucuma, spirulina and mint.

Process:

Melt cacao butter at 80 degrees in food dehydrator or in double boiler

Stir in cacao powder

Blend with coconut sugar in blender

Pour into glass jar

Add culture starters or a few teaspoons of coconut kefir

Let ferment for 24 hours

Add your add-ins

Pour into molds

Refrigerate and eat

For Fudgy Wows – replace cacao butter with coconut butter. Or do a half and half mix =YUM!

Hope you enjoy these and feel empowered to add them to your arsenal of natural healing tools.

I’m the kind of person who wants to know the Truth, no matter what it is and who can THRIVE regardless of what crazy information might come up. Know yourself and what makes you tick because you create your reality, and if the GMO thing brings you down –you definitely don’t want to stay living in that vibration. Focus your attention what what you want to do, what you want to eat, how you want to be. Focus on high frequency emotions like gratitude, which allow you to transmute that which doesn’t serve you. You will best serve the rest of the world by being TRUE to you.
