Autism Recovery Journey: Healing Earth’s Autism

20120622-080302.jpg

Autism is on the Rise

Studies tell us that we are at epidemic rates of a mysterious, puzzling disorder called autism (autism spectrum disorder) among humans. But, ever since meeting my son again in this lifetime and experiencing his life with him, I have correlated his way of being with the wonders and the ills of nature, and in particular –our planet herself. In this Time of our Reality.

Because Mama Gaia (Earth) Has a Message

If Mama Earth were given an expert evaluation, I assure you that she’d come out with a label of ASD. And, not JUST because these labels make money for the system who keeps us sick. But, because all of Mama Earth’s symptoms add up to a toxic overload that expresses itself in the form of regressive development (bees becoming extinct, more animals being born with birth defects, loss of minerals in soil, loss of crops); inability to socialize appropriately for her age (Mama is at least 4 billion, and her cells (US) struggle to communicate); digestive and systemic organ malfunction (earth quakes, tornadoes, climate change).

Understanding the Gift of Change

Now, I’m not implying that these are all BAD things. They are Mama’s way of pushing out the toxins that she has been unknowingly injected with — (pesticides that inhibit her nervous system and so much more). Mama’s outward expression of war, planetary upheaval and confusion stems from her body’s need to push out toxins and renew herself. She is healing. She will survive with or without us. Her autism-like symptoms are her message. It allows us to know what she needs. We can either give it to her, or quite honestly — she can take it and sacrifice us. As her cells, we are quite adaptable to her toxicity. We can learn to live in an unhealthy environment. BUT, Mama knows best. She knows how it feels to be whole and she wants to get back to wholeness.

I’ve worked with hundreds of children with autism and have lived with my own boy for 7 years. I’ve seen the hand- flapping, toe-walking, tantrumming, head-banging, seizures, diarrhea, allergies and more. And, I see these symptoms as our bodies’ way of trying to cleanse, balance and get back to WHOLENESS.

My son was unable to break down proteins due to a lack of proper bacteria and enzymes in his digestive system. We discovered this because he was spinning. We observed when the spinning began, and correlated it with his indigestion of proteins. He spun to balance internal overload with output. He was relieving himself. To ease his pain, we removed protein except for in its predigested fermented form, and then healed his gut so that he could digest on his own. He NEVER had a spinning spell again. When needed, our son would spin, hand-flap, make buzzing noises — all to bring his inner and outer body into wholeness. As he healed, we joined him in these activities to help him feel recognized and help us understand what was going on and why. When it was possible, we would lead him out of repetitive activities.

It’s remarkable to me how we are designed in such a way that our bodies can bring us into balance– even if our conscious minds are unaware of what’s going on. But, in quantum physics, if we observe something…. that is to say, if we become aware of it– the results change. The results are now at least partially dependent on the observer.

So, imagine KNOWING that when your child is tantrumming or spinning, this is a needed step in his return to wholeness. What is bringing him out of wholeness? If someone cannot digest protein (for example), feeding them streak does not give them any protein. This food becomes toxic to them. It putrefies in his gut. So, in this case you’d be dealing with a complication of toxic overload from undigested food, allergic reaction to said food and protein deficiency.

This chain-link of reasoning behind autism symptoms can leave a parent feeling very confused and alone. 

The journey to healing speeds up once we embrace the gifts of this change. These symptoms are taking you somewhere. They are not meant to leave your children in pain. It’s quite a leap for some to trust their instincts and take their healing back to Earth, and slowly ALLOW nature’s power to do HER wonders. To hug the Earth is to experience one of the most healing vibrations that we know.

But, we are taught to jump into recovery, killing autism and all of the bad bugs that come along with it with chelation, factory-made supplements and the like. I didn’t have to go there. I simply embraced our mama. Supplements and modalities that do work are the ones that mimic nature– and I have experienced their usefulness for short-lived periods of time.

Why do you think Mother Nature would react in earth quakes and climate change?

Her condition is not a mistake. It is just as it needs to be in order for her to move on to her next phase of consciousness.

When I met my son, and learned that he had autism, I understood that he came here to be the way he is so that people can learn what he and the earth need to heal.

People with autism carry this message of higher consciousness. They are different thinkers. Some call them neuro-diverse. We are headed into a phase of consciousness where human caca like banking systems, governments and institutions are crashing and being re-born differently.

When the dust settles, what’s left will be a diverse group of people with far more intellectual, creative and manifestation power than ever before.

It’s not time to control or medicate and put these beautiful souls in a box labeled autism. It’s a time to listen to them and do everything we can to ALLOW their amazingness to come through.

We are Just as We Should Be

Science continues to prove a divine plan, and although we have some pretty extreme manifestation powers, we are not working at this alone.

Our kids with autism are just as they should be. They are fulfilling their purpose quite well because people are waking up all over the place. But, being as they should be and being sick are two different things. I see it as part of my own purpose to help people wake up to the fact that accepting autism has nothing to do with accepting illness. Once the key to the illness part is discovered, everyone can begin feeling better. And neuro-diversity is not illness.

If you’re a mama or a dad of an angel with autism, know that she/he is here to teach you too! So, as we join hands in gratitude for the blessings– we discover even more healing.

We are All Healing

Healing is what healing means to you. And, I’m not trying to sound like Forrest Gump. I’m only reminding you that only you can feel your purpose and your path. You know where you are supposed to be.

I see healing as change into a place that feels better. I see it as a letting go of what feels wrong and embracing what’s right. And I’m so grateful to be alive at a time when I can experience this with you.

These days there probably isn’t one of us who does not feel the residual energetic effects of our Mama Earth’s auto-immune disease. It’s real and we know it. But at the same time, we have the power to help one another transcend it.

We are not our labels.

As a matter of fact, we are perfect. We simply forgot that. If we remembered our perfection and the light that we came from, we would understand our power to heal.

Let go of all that ails you today (whatever you call it)! It’s your key into higher consciousness!

Please join us in giving of your heart’s vibration in honor of experiencing a mass shift in consciousness. Forget the problems and fill your day with light.

I’d love to help you create Bliss in your life through healthy eating! Contact me for your personalized session!

20120616-013814.jpg

We’ve spent the last 5 months touring the west coastline of Mexico, and really healing up after some challenges last year. Doug is completely free of seizure meds and hasn’t had a seizure in well over 2 years! We’ve met new and lasting friends, learned so much about the value of family and our beautiful planet’s gifts, and we’ve taught classes and given healing sessions in some pretty magical spaces. Unschooling is the bomb. Dougie is uncovering his true abilities, and it’s amazing to witness and experience with him.

So, we’re ready to Bring the BLISS to YOU!

Do you long for MORE ENLIGHTENMENT?

Do you want to be MORE in-tune with your body?

Each Day we help people from across the world find their BLISS. Our clients have overcome everything from autism to debt, from cancer to personal & professional relationship slumps — and so much more.

We have a DREAM to create a New BLISS HEALING MOBILE where we can travel the world and bring our services right to the doorsteps of those who desire. ( if you’ve been following us, you know that our first House on Wheels didn’t make he trip, Bless Her Heart). I can just imagine finally hugging in-person some of the lovelies who I’m BLESSED to work with from a distance every day! It’s already happening! And we just want more. Bliss is addictive like that.

So, we decided to go ahead with our tour even before the new House on Wheels comes into fruition! Why wait? We’re going Eco-Style — which means we’ll be taking public and mass transit whenever possible. We’ve got our bus passes and our plan to Be the Change!

We hope you will come out and see us or even help us host an event in your town!

Autism and Vaccines: Vaccines Cause Micro Vascular Strokes: More info I Shared on the Raw Mom Summit

This post is from 2009. We’re moving all of our old blogs from Heal Artfully over here to BlissedLife in order to solidify our message and purpose in one place. We have learned so much more about the toxicity of vaccines (as currently produced and administered), as well as how to properly, naturally immunize ourselves with food and energy since this was written. Still, its a part of our journey that we like to share. I’m constantly asked my opinion on the connection between vaccines and autism. And, while I have a strong opinion, it’s extremely important to me that you keep yourself informed on the facts. I have provided links to very helpful information. Please take the time to click.

HERE ARE THE FACTS OF OUR AUTISM LIFE

My son was born with several complications but developed “normally” for 12 months He spoke, identified things and walked at 9 months (small words like “yellow” and “mommy”) My son was vaccinated 24 times by the age of 2. He got sick immediately after his last set of vaccines He had never previously needed prescription medicine I did not allow him to receive the MMR My son was diagnosed with autism without having ever received the vaccines most commonly blamed for autism. My son’s toxicity screening shows levels of metals, pollutants and chemicals that are also located in vaccines. These toxins are also in water, air, food, home environment etc. The detoxification of these pollutants through diet and sensory/energy healing has taken away the illness and side effects of what is called autism. We never had money for much testing so I had to rely on my own study and intuition We could tell by process of elimination and experimentation that my son was sensitive to many foods and was not absorbing his nutrition. We suspected an overload of toxicity including, candida, parasites and the toxins which did show up on his screening. We treated for Candida, parasites, metals and pollutants through diet and found that he is now better absorbing his nutrition and really beginning to soar developmentally HERE ARE SOME OF THE FACTS THAT HELPED ME ALONG MY JOURNEY Vodpod videos no longer available. Vaccines Cause Micro vascular Strokes: This is specifically an aluminum problem Vaccines Cause a T2 immune response which forces the body to hold the disease in and fight it internally, rather than push it out. Vaccines contain many pollutants including metals Children are born with a leaky gut because nature intends for them to absorb the nutrition from their mother’s milk. Children are often vaccinated at 1 day of age. This sets the stage for toxins to leak into the brain. Live viruses found in tissue of children with autism: This reports three cases, but I have contact with people who have developed measles while detoxing. This means that the virus was in them and could not come out. Once they release the virus, they are one step closer to health. Donna Gates, of Body Ecology has a belief that viral infections are also an underlying problem (another toxin in the overload) of autism. Her Diet, the Body Ecology diet has a specific step to address this viral infection. If the immune system is down it can let it other pollutants and parasites that would otherwise be pushed out through natural means. These parasites grow, feed off of our food and harbor disease. HERE’S SOME ADDITIONAL VACCINE SAFETY INFO THAT I HOPE WILL HELP YOU Educate Before You Vaccinate Dr. Sherri Tenpenney Vaccine Nation Age of Autism Mercury Vaccines and Medicine I am not in the business of blaming any one person, doctor, vaccine, parasite or poison for my son’s illness. And, while I have decided not to vaccinate any more I will also say that recovery and complete wellness are about much more than simply not vaccinating. I am also of the opinion that vaccines cause harm to everyone, even if they don’t result in a diagnosis of autism. Check out the CDC’s website for yourself. We are experiencing disgusting rates of allergies, asthma, food sensitivities, digestive issues and auto immune issues, obesity. All of these illnesses can be traced back to toxicity. And, to me vaccines are just another form of toxicity. For some, they are too much to handle and unfortunately, many of us find out after the fact. You have choices. Perhaps vaccines actually do stop the spread of contagious diseases. The doctors and scientists whom I have spoken with truly do not know the answer to that. But The CDC will say that vaccines do work to do what they were meant to do, and that they are not related to autism. So, what it comes down to is that it’s up to us to decide what’s best for us. It’s not enough to simply take away poison. We must feed our bodies pure health through food, thoughts, emotions, energy and exercise in order to thrive. I feel the need to express that if you are a parent of a child with a” disability” illness or autism I am on your side and I respect your journey, your outlook, your decisions and your rights to those decisions. If I can help you bring your child to better health I am here for you, even if we see things a bit differently. This is a reflection of my life, experience and study. I am open to any information that will bring health and happiness to my family.

Love and Light, Gina

Autism Recovery: BIO AGE algae (Bio Superfood) Update and Notes on Balance

As you also know, Bio Sperfood has been a very helpful  addition to my son’s healing, and we have had so much success with it that I decided to share it with you.

for info on the product and how we fist began using it, click here: http://ginalaverde.wordpress.com/2009/08/30/bio-algae-concentrates-for-autism-recovery/

The idea of balance plays a huge role when using this supplement. It is extremely powerful. While there has always been social, developmental, digestive and immune progress with this supplement, at times it makes Dougie, my son, really edgy and stimmy.  Too much of anything can cause results that we don’t like. But, how do we know how much is the right aount for us?

I don’t believe that detox and healing should be painful. I try to make Dougie’s days go by as smoothly as I possibly can. Because we use whole-food supplements and no medicines, I know that when he has a reactionit is most likely that he has simply had as much as he can handle. Slowing way down with dosages of Bioage has helped me determine how much y son needs. And, if/when you begin your journey with this, I highly recommend beginning with the smallest drip/drop possible.  As in.. breaking open the pills and only eating the smallest amount first. It’s powerful stuff.

I have learned how to balance Bio Sperfood with other foods in order to give it to him in a way that supports his healing.

This product is very expansive. It can over-stimulate (I have not seen any proof of this recorded, but I have seen it in my home). So I urge you to go slowly with it.

HARMONY:

If we think of creating balance in our systems as creating harmony, it may help us to understand that what we want to create is a steady calm rhythm. Seeing as though we heal in moments of stillness, my  goal should is  to create stillness within his systems.

Detox in itself (although necessary)  upset Dougie’s  system for a short period, because I went too fast with it.

When unsavory detox symptoms are occurring you can use your mommy instincts to bring Balance back.

The Mommy Instinct:

Often, painful detox symptoms will resemble an exaggerated version of the person’s illness. If we are suffering from autism — detoxing may make us either more stimmy (hyper, injurious, spinny, tantrums etc) or more distant.

Detox (die off) symptoms can also take us to the opposite side of the spectrum.  But, when we are making positive lifestyle and diet changes we are pretty certain to see some type of die-off symptoms.

A system on overload can react in either way.

So, we must take care to stop and listen to the needs of our children and loved ones. This is where slowing down is so helpful.

It’s clear to me that the bioage caused detox. It’s a clean, whole-food based algae supplement — so, when Dougie experiences too much die-off or painful symptoms we simply slow down or take breaks from it.

As moms, I believe  we can help  heal our loved ones without knowing the scientific cause of these symptoms.

  • If we are caring for someone who has become over-stimulated they need things that will bring them into calm. Think of ways you can address their needs without putting in more medicine/supplements etc. Observe your child closely, (close your eyes if you have to) and ask yourself what he needs. You have the answer. If it feels right it probably is and if you are questioning it there must be a great reason.

These methods have worked for me. I use them all the time to bring us back into balance.

    • Dry skin brushing, massage, lavender oil (burning or boil dried lavender)
    • Classical music
    • Dim light or candle light
    • Unplug all electrical devices
    • Take out doors if possible
    • Allow a healthy outlet for too much energy (rebounding, running, singing, even singing loud in safe place)
    • Enema/ spa time ( to let out build up)
  • If we are caring for someone who has become distant, lethargic and lacks interaction with us they may need some stimulation
    • Tummy rubs to stimulate digestion
    • Mineral  broth soup and foods with high nutrient content)
    • Enema and spa to release build up

Ask for balance in your life so that you can see how to extend it into the life of your loved ones. You will know that you can use these methods to help yourself too. And, if you consider all things… All things that affect the child’s life you will know how to begin bringing balance back to him.

To me, there is only one disease, and that is the state of not being balanced and “happy” inside ourselves.

My mommy instinct:

My son pretty much pulled out of autism at age 4. Although, at the time he certainly did not act like a 4 year old. I had to consider the time “lost” when he was ill. And so, I brought him back to all of the developmental and social places he needed to go in order to come back into himself.

At 4 years old I put him back in my bed with me. I help him more. I even walked him to school holding him. At this point ( at some levels) I was dealing with a newborn. There were places in his development that he totally missed because he was sick. I began encouraging crawling and babbling (even though he was talking – he stuttered a lot and repeated a lot)

I stopped correcting his language altogether. I stopped trying to get him to hold a fork correctly or eat a certain way.

What did your child miss? Can you somehow recreate that?

Using the Bio Supefood in amounts that Dougie can handle has physically worked on his brain to help him speak more clearly, write  letters clearly,  walk more balanced, and the improvements continue.

Dougie currnetly takes 1/2 to 1 F2 daily with interediate breaks. y hubby and I take Bio Superfood as well. I’ll have more info on that soon.

I’d love to help you create Bliss in your life through healthy eating! Contact me for your personalized session!
