Raising Psychic Children

20120314-080909.jpg The other day, my son went up to a young woman and asked her about the baby in her tummy. One that she had yet to publicly reveal. At home on our couch, he went on to tell me that she’s having a girl with light brown hair. He does this often. A few months ago on the train he dragged me up to a woman who he had to speak to. He asked her about her son “Bern, ” the “chef” who lived in another state. The woman, taken aback, began talking about how much she missed her son, but that she was so proud of him for living his dream and having just officially completed culinary school.

Now, he’s channeling dietary advice to friends on Skype. He’ll text message things like “eat salmon and fish and chicken broth” during conversations. What’s significant about this for me is that I often get my “messages” in terms of food. I’ll just know what someone can eat to help them. Now he’s doing it alone and right on point with what I would advice. He’s also very serious about the way life was when he was on Mars. He can give details about the soil. The truth is that all children and humans are psychic. Our kids are way better at it than we are, and if you are reading this you absolutely have a psychic child. The advice given here can increase anyone’s psychic ability and enhance our physical health as well…. Our intuitive abilities are imprinted in our DNA. We were born to instinctively understand how to protect ourselves, grow and connect with nature. A very easy example of your psychic ability is to remember how it feels when you “know” to get away from another person or situation. The Fight or Flight response is something most of us can agree that we have. When we follow the instinct, or  natural survival response, we open channels for more psychic (vibrational information to come through).

We are sensitive to subtle energy because we are built from subtle energy. We take in loads of information all day long — media, facts, interactions with people, meals, you name it. And this information is filtered and will be stored correctly without much thought given to it. However, we have been conditioned to completely ignore the fact that each and every ounce of information we take in also has a vibratory frequency that is detected by our energy body, and deciphered through our pineal gland. “The seat of the soul” according to De Cartes. Our pineal glands are the functional, measurable, psychic part of us. This pineal gland, also known as our third eye, has been cherished throughout history in ancient cultures.

Artwork from Sumeria, to the Mayans and even Egyptian pyramids glorified this magickal gland. We call it “pineal” which derives from “pinecone” and that’s exactly how it looks in the center of our brains. In fact, this gland has all of the inner components of your seeing eyes and may very well be responsible for the visions you have while dreaming. It is filled with fluid, and the balance or imbalance of this fluid is used to detect brain tumors on brain scans. The Hindu Bindi is a decorative gem worn over the third eye, and we still see this all the time in our current society.

For those who celebrate the Hindu religion, this pineal gland, or 6th chakra, represents the manifestation of stored energy or Kundalini energy. It’s hidden sacred knowledge. Knowledge from within that culminates when the connection is made through all of the lower chakras. This makes me think of an activated pineal gland as a gift of inner-sight that is rewarded to those who make those connections. We know it’s something desired by many today. Just look at the American dollar bill and you’ll see the third eye symbolism atop a depiction of a pyramid. The Pope carries a pine cone atop his staff. And his house, the Vatican, is chock-full of pine cone symbolism and god/goddess relics that one would assume would be hard to find in a Christian haven.

Pine cones are everywhere loves. From corporate logos to religious art to money money money money. And if this post was solely about our pineal glands I could go on forever about how intentional that is.

So, when Dougie senses what’s going on in another person’s  body, he is using an innate gift that we all have. Children are born more connected, aren’t they? But, this isn’t JUST because they just arrived here. In fact, Dougie’s been around longer than I have. Many of the children being born today are very old souls who have come back with remembered skills and wisdom, and they are coming to parents who can support that in them. So, if you have a noticeably psychic child, have no fear, they have chosen you for a good reason. We now understand that our pineal glands actually may calcify over time. This strongly inhibits our psychic ability. To my knowledge, this was first thought of as an inevitable part of aging. However, there’s loads of evidence that shows diet can play a huge role in calcifying and even de-calcifying our pineal glands.

A child is born into the world without already having eaten years and years of processed foods. This is another big part of what gives them the one up on us adults in the psychic department. Their communication equipment is cleaner. Aluminum is a big pineal gland destroyer. And aluminum can be found in most drinking water, vaccinations, cook-ware, deodorant, food containers and many processed foods and spices including tortillas, breads, chips, and baking powder. There have been studies linking aluminum cookware to Alzheimer’s, and for good reason. Even my son Dougie, the amazing psychic, has been tested to prove an overload of aluminum in his system. This was years ago, while he was still going through major healing from autism-related illness.

So, now you know what makes us all psychic and what makes our kids better at it. Let’s talk about how you can support your children on this Blissful path, and what your role might be.

Eat Clean You don’t need to fret over how many calories or carbs you are having, just keep your eats as free from chemicals, pesticides, and genetically modified franken-foods as possible. Organic fresh food has a higher frequency than food that’s been sitting for a day or a week. Higher frequency foods have a way of connecting us to higher frequencies… So like attracts like in this case. Enjoy many colors of foods and listen to your children’s cravings especially if they are healthy. For example, if your child really digs cucumbers and wants to eat five per day… Go with that. And commend them for choosing something so healthy. This will affirm their intuition.

Live Fluoride, Aluminum, Mercury and Toxin Free Here is a link to aluminum containing products. Get them out quickly as well as other household toxins like detergents and dryer sheets, baby powder, bleach, pasteurized milk, deodorant, unnatural perfumes, and fluorescent lights which contain mercury powder. Here is a link to how Fluoride jeopardizes the functionality of our pineal glands. That means changing our toothpastes and water. http://www.in5d.com/fluoride-free-pineal-gland.html

Work on You Record your dreams in a journal and make a positive intention to remember your dreams before you fall asleep. These dream memories may only be a sentence long at first, but they are very important to remember. When you sleep, your physical eyes and analytical mind is turned off. You are closest to the natural psychic you. Take time to do things that make you feel good. Meditate, pray, do yoga, listen to music. Not only is this good for you, but it shows your kids that they can do the same for themselves.

Listen to Wild Stories Does your son or daughter talk about when they used to be a grown up, life on other planets or their “other family”? These could be past life stories that are important to remember. Listen intently without saying much other than to support the story. Our memories can be jaded by experience and time. If you can record or write down these stories for them to have, this may be very helpful for them in the future. When Dougie talks about Mars, I ask him questions like a reporter would. Things I really want to know. Like, “so why couldn’t you plant green beans?” or “what were some of the plants you could grow?” But I will only interject my questions when he is finished talking.

The same goes for dreams. You can ask about your child’s dreams. But, my suggestion is not to be too leading. So, you might lightly ask, “what did you dream about,” first thing in the morning– and then simply listen without pressing for answers. Then you might wait a few mornings to see if he comes to you to share his dreams. I will drop whatever I’m doing to listen to one of Dougie’s stories.

Freedom at Home So many of these children have been around the moon more times than we have… And they remember it. Allow for as much freedom at home as is possible for their safety. I’m talking about allowing them to cook food, create and hang art wherever they want to, clean, organize, pick out clothes, pay at the grocery store, pick groceries, call friends and relatives who they want to speak to. This will allow them to align more quickly with what they like and who they are.

Play Time For children, play is their work. It helps them solve problems, hone skills and really just explore life. A child with a noticeable psychic gift is still living in a developing child’s body. Lots of playtime is important because they need to decompress, and feel like a kid. I recommend lots of outdoor play as the sunshine is good for their moods as well as Vitamin D intake and of course, the Sun regenerates us. Earth vibrations, like from being bare foot in the soil are also very grounding and calming. Keep electronic toys at a minimum as the man made vibrations can be very disruptive to their senses.

Experience, Expose and Encourage Allow each experience to unfold without expectations. Your child will lead you through stories or signals for what they desire. Generally speaking, our desires lead us to our life’s purpose. Expose them to music of many cultures, languages, colors, stories and positive people of all shapes and colors. Encourage creative outlets like singing, dancing and painting. This is how shamans often connect with their healing gifts. Our art has a way of exposing our soul. And that’s a good thing. I don’t like to make assumptions about my son’s art. instead, I will ask what he made and how he feels about it. Often it’s not what I thought at all.

Unschooling Keep in mind that public education was designed to create beings with set responses to authority. This line of thinking is what got us here having to discuss how to raise a psychic child. We are out of whack with our natural selves because we have subscribed to a system that forces us to try and be like everyone else. Funny enough, we’re not really all that different. But, we must step into our whole selves which includes embracing all of our abilities. Unschooling represents the undoing of that old paradigm. It’s in the experimenting with what we like and want that we discover who we are. As an Unschooling mama, I am pleasantly surprised with how well my son can read, write and analyze data. Unschooling is not about not learning… It’s simply about unblocking that which was holding us back from learning these hidden treasures about ourselves. If you know that regular school is best for your child, trusting that instinct is part of embracing your family’s psychic ability. My suggestion in that case is to take these Unschooling vibes into your home life and feel how that inspires you. Who knows what the future holds for our psychic children? But wouldn’t it be nice to support this ability in them so that they have even more opportunities ahead?

We are all psychic. That doesn’t mean that we are all going to become professional healers. This intuitive ability is needed in every position in the world from mothering to presidenting.

Healthy Pregnancy: Eating, Yoga and Meditation

violet

I feel more amazing than EVER. There’s this inner sense of BLISS that keeps me KNOWING and CONNECTED. Dougie tells us “HER” name is VIOLET, and we agree. Although this tiny being is but the size of a grape at 11 weeks in womb, we know that “she” is a soul mate. Someone we have long known and long awaited.

Violet who represents the highest frequency Healing Light. The Violet Flame of Transmutation. Vision. Connection. Protection. ENLIGHTENMENT. I asked Dougie what would happen if the baby is a boy, and he says ” She is not a boy, she is my baby sister, Violet.”

Violet has been coming to me in dreams since I met my husband. And, as time passed, she’s been showing herself to me outside of dreams too. Years ago, while swinging on a park-swing in Chicago, I saw and felt her by my side.  She told me her birthday is December 2013. And, so it is.

To top off our excitement, several of my best girlfriends are also expecting bundles if BLISS soon.  Sharing this Journey with them, even from afar, inspires me to make this the ROCKINGEST time of my LIFE.

I’d love to share with you some of the things we’re doing and choices we’re making to keep the Bliss flowing.

Mom’s Health and Food

You know I’m all about eating right for your needs and that food has been my medicine for ages — helping me recover from candida, fatigue, migraines etc, and helping my son Dougie pull out of autism. Now, my body is someone’s  home for her first 9 months of life. This is a seriously amazing opportunity.

So, here’s what I’m eating and why:

Every supplement is raw and organic.

Daily Smoothies (up to 1 qt throughout the day but it varies)

Varying Ingredients:

  • Spirulina Plus (Body Ecology brand): Great source of predigested, easy to absorb super protein with REAL LIVE probiotics. Helps keep my digestive bacteria in balance, as candida yeast  can rise during pregnancy. This super food is also full of vitamins and minerals that go directly to your developing baby. The probiotics living in this food help to create vitamins in our bodies. There is even evidence that these “bugs” are responsible for making B12.
  • Chlorella (Healthforce Nutritionals Brand: Nutrient Dense super food that has a load of chlorophyll, and has even thought to deflect toxins from harming our bodies.
  • Maca: An adaptogenic super-root that we have been introduced to through Peru. It has the ability to regulate hormones, and like any other adaptogen, give your body exactly what it needs for balance. It also oxygenates our blood, and helps neurotransmitter communication. Maca is also said to help produce mother’s milk for mamas. It tastes great, a little like malt, and offers a nice grounding energy to balance out the expansive green foods mentioned above.
  • Cod Liver Oil: (I’d do krill oil if I had it here in Costa Rica) High quality fats are needed for the baby’s brain development. I find when I don’t have this, I intuitively feel something is missing. It really gives me a sense of ease throughout my body.
  • Vitamineral Green (Healthforce Nutrionals Brand): Covers a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals all in food form.
  • Ancient Earth Minerals (Body Ecology Brand): Exactly what it sounds like. This supplement offers a top-notch source of humic and fulvic minerals. Things that are now missing from most of our soils and foods. It works to support thyroid and adrenals.
  • Chia Seeds: Fiber! But also these beautiful seeds have a way of soothing stomach and joints too.
  • Hemp Seeds: Another great source of protein.
  • Hemp Seed Butter: What a yummy source of fat of fat and protein.
  • Reishi extract (Dragon Herbs/22 Reishis): Perhaps my favorite Herb. As an adaptogen Reishi really supports every bodily system. Reishi works on our physical bodies, but also has a distinct role in increasing our spiritual connection and overall “spirit” for life. I’ve been told by Chinese doctors that they can tell when a mama consumes Reishi during pregnancy.
  • Reishi Tea: I feel a more yin support ( core support/kidneys) when I drink Reishi Tea. A little vanilla and stevia and it takes the place of coffee for me.  Sometimes, I use Reishi Tea in my smoothies. Sometimes drink it warm. Reishi also keeps our candida index down.
  • Coconut Kefir: Amazing source of probiotics and mineral. Gives me energy. Helps build the baby’s inner eco system and immune system.

These ingredients will be blended with coconut or avocado and frozen berries or frozen plantain from our trees in Costa Rica.

Other Delicious Raw Organic Power Foods

  • Cultured Veggies (Cabbage, Beet, minerals added): Helps digest everything else. Tastes Great and filled with probiotics too.
  • Earth (Vitamineral Green Brand) another delicious form of  high-quality minerals that tastes great on warm foods like eggs, sautéed veggies, soups.
  • Young Coconut water and Coconut Meat:
  • Coconut Oil: Healthy fat with amazing healing power for thyroid and more. This oil can be heated without becoming toxic, so its the only oil I use for cooking.
  • Every color of veggie!: I’m having huge salads and feeling very drawn to the taste vegetables! Yum!
  • Black berries and strawberries:
  • Local goat cheese: Ask Violet. This stuff tastes like Heaven to me right now. I’ve read not to eat raw cheese when preggers. This to me, doesn’t seem logical. In it’s raw state, cheese has the enzymes needed to digest.  If there were pathogenic bacteria on the cheese I chose to eat, In wouldn’t chose it. But, I am not suggesting that you follow my lead on this one. I can tell a difference between raw and pasteurized cheese. I cannot even digest pasteurized cheese. Again, this offers some fats and proteins.

Delicious Cooked Foods on the menu:

  • Egg Omelets (Made by Dougie): Served with veggies and cultured veggies. I’m normally not an egg fan, but I’m loving them a few times a week. We keep them a bit runny and raw.
  • Fish Cakes, Fish  salads: Local Costa Rican caught small white fishes (lowest mercury) blended with spices and herbs. I’m having fish a few times per week too. I’d have it every day if I could keep up with myself.
  • Rice noodles with home-made sauces and dressings

Treats and Sweets

I went gluten free again officially in January. It totally helped clear me of  back and joint pain and I literally felt like a veil lifted. I intended to have  a gluten-free pregnancy too. But, had a few slices of home-made organic pizza here in Costa Rica. I totally LOVED it! I think Violet did too. We’ll see how the rest of the time goes. Because we found a few places who make gluten-free treats that are sweetened with fruits.

  • Almond flour banana-nut Cupcake
  • Raw Banana Ice Cream
  • Raw Chocolate Bar

Foods I’m not Loving

Some of my normal favorites are not so awesome right now. I’m not able to digest them very well, and my body is just saying no.

  • Brown Rice
  • Quinoa
  • Beans of any kind
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Watermelon

Yoga:

Violet’s got me going deeper and playing with yoga much more than usual. I find slower, longer poses and deep stretches are giving me energy, keeping me flexible and pain-free AND helping my digestion. I have  a notion that yoga during pregnancy will make for a more comfortable labor and birth. Not to mention increase oxygen flow to the baby and help with her development.

My last yoga class in California, before we headed out to Costa Rica, left me feeling strangely unbalanced. I couldn’t hold a pose. I couldn’t breathe fully down to my core. I kept tipping over during Tree Pose. The pregnancy definitely changed me.

Now, I’m yoga-ing for about 3 hours a day.  My body leads me into Cat/Cow, Down Dog/Up dog, forward bends and light back bends. I just listen to what I need and with each stretch my body feels even more BLISSED. I’m lightly focussing on hip openers, blood flow and strength and endurance. The slower pace feels like its allowing me to heal my body even further. Who would’ve thought? I used to think pregnancy was about giving your body to another person. I know. I know. But, now I see that she is giving me so much healing as well.

Meditation:

We’re feeling an un-assisted birth will be the best for us (and we did have one).  So it’s even more important to connect on a vibrational level with the soul we are welcoming. To make sure we are fulfilling her needs and wants. To make sure that the experience will flow in a healthy way. Positive affirmations have helped me a lot. So has Kirtan music like Krishna Das and Snatam Kaur. I take time throughout the day to pause and create and recognize the flow of LOVE between Violet and me. I’ve been internally talking to her about her positioning and her absorption of nutrients as she grows I send each bite of food down with a gratitude blessing and intention for each food or plant’s medicine to reach her.

I share Reiki with her too. I’m making space in my day to meditate for longer periods and really have a more complete sense of Violet’s needs. Intuition is up now, and it will be my strongest tool for preparing for this miracle.

Can’t wait to share lots more!

The year 2012 lives within an energy field of rapid advancement into higher consciousness for our planet as a living being and all of us who live within Her. There are also major galactic shifts that influence our expansion. We are truly coming into an integration period where we are calling back the parts of our selves that have been lost over lifetimes, and realizing that each one of us holds parts of each other. We are One. And, we are figuring that out.

Ancient Shamans and “medicine people” understood how to live with our planet and use and restore her gifts for the growth of all. Integrating these teachings with modern experience, we can learn to transcend our problems by transforming our perspectives and heightening our vibrations.

We have more than just the power to heal. We have the inner power to shift. This connection offers one of the deepest, most satisfying feelings we have ever experienced and that is why we are sharing it with you now. We know that if this class is calling you — you will really dig it too.

Raising Psychic Children Part 2: The Autism and Special Needs Connection

Last week I shared with you that we were all born with natural intuitive abilities that can be measured through the work of our pineal glands. This gland is also called our third eye, and is known to become calcified with age and toxicity overload from diet and environment. This calcification severs our intuitive connection. Because children are “newer” in their bodies, they are usually born very connected and able to intuitively respond to their own needs. Children know just how to give their bodies what they require in the moment. They make noise when they need something beyond their reach and they won’t stop until that they’re fulfilled. They sleep, laugh, cry, poop and react to change on cue with their own desires. The psychic child is one who stays connected to that intuitive gift. The psychic adult is one who remains connected throughout life. We all have the ability to tap into this gift. We’re going to chat about the connection between very psychic children and those with special needs, autism, aspbergers, allergies, and developmental delays. But before we do that, I want to give you some hints on how I define the term “psychic.” Psychics are those who can feel, see, smell, hear and sense subtle energies (that we are all made up of) and interpret, and respond to them. This needn’t be a verbal interpretation. A psychic may be able to sense danger, hear a warning, or see a spirit for example. Psychics are not prophets who can change or manipulate the future. When a glimpse is given of the future — this merely solidifies it as one possibility. We can influence it with our thoughts, but no one person has that much control. Psychic ability helps to connect with spirits and beings from other dimensions of reality. Many children lose this ability at around age 7. But, we can help nurture it. Their skulls actually fully harden by this time. So, this is when most of the connection that was held on to in their earlier years can be cut off, A psychic’s first responsibility is to to the self. Growth is the main goal.Our psychic ability will lead us to growth.This does not mean that it will always lead us down Blissy Lane. But, Intuitive hits for self care and self preservation are huge gifts of our intuition. If we listen carefully, we can connect to all of it. Even when hints are given about others, I always see a connection to how it can help myself. So, we are born with this gift mainly to help us Thrive.

Psychic Sensitivity and Special Needs

Can you sense subtle energies? Can you feel exactly when you neeeeeed an avocado? Do you just KNOW what color to wear today, what to say to the friend who asks for advice, or what time it is now without a watch? The deeper your sensitivities are to energies like that — often the deeper your sensitivities are to food, toxins, lights, sounds, people, places, weather, etc. Does this sound like your kids? So, these sensitivities go hand in hand. Everything is made up of energy. Little balls of potential are at the core of every human, every crayon, every steak… You get my drift. If your child can so strongly sense the hurtful energies in gluten that he manifests a rash, seizure or spinning spell just to expel that poison from his body, understand that he is reacting intuitively and healthfully for his body. There are some people who seem of be able to scarf down canned chilli-cheese sandwiches with antibiotic-laden ice cream without flinching. They go back to their computer after lunch and hum a happy tune. What would happen if our kids ate something so un-natural? Children with autism and allergies (and those who are on the spectrum of psychicness) are usually sensitive to things that are unnatural. That is because the man-made energetic vibration of things like fluorescent lights inhibits their psychic ability. Their ability to understand how to Thrive. Ultimately, their bodies want to be in balance, so they will create reactions that help bring them into balance. They will strike against that which inhibits their purpose here. When I meet an adult who is as sick as my son was with heavy metal poison, digestive problems, allergies, exhaustion and not “knowing” what to eat to make them feel better — I always encourage them to consider how to use their psychic abilities. Their bodies are reacting adversely to everything they eat, and they feel complete unrest because they have shut off the mechanism that can save them. But, the very fact that they are so sensitive tells me they have and are unconsciously using this ability. As grown-ups, we can understand choices like this and mentally make the decision to change things. Incidentally, if you are an adult with massive sensitivities, you might just be a hidden healer. You can begin using your sensitivity to help you gauge how you react to specific foods and toxins. And, you can use this ability to help others. That was me. Sharing is part of the healing process. You don’t have to be sick to be sensitive. You can find healthy outlets for this part of you. Our kids don’t always have the intellectual luxury of knowing why or how toxins (to them) will effect them. Yet, their intuitive abilities take over and their bodies go into “fight” mode. We know that purifying their lives by consuming all natural, chemical-free products eases those painful reactions. And, once we do that, we begin to see less pain and more of those psychic gifts. That’s right, as you clean up diets and lifestyles — you get MORE (not less) of the magic that is really behind autism and the spectrum.

Sensitive Child Psychic Child

If we heal our kids while they are young, we will see the true benefits that these very psychic children want to bring to us. Will all of them always be this sensitive? Probably not! We can do wonders for curing food allergies…. We did in our home. And those abilities can be re-directed. My son can eat wheat, corn and dairy now (He doesn’t have it every day). And now he uses his psychic ability to tell me exactly what he needs to eat, how life was in his past lives and who is lying to us. (I’m going to talk more about this is Part 3). Those who were once sensitive to wheat and gluten can perhaps heal, and instead be sensitive to that vibration and understand when someone has a wheat or gluten sensitivity. This is what happened for me in my adult life. But, the possibilities are endless. A psychic child whose painful sensitivities have been healed, has the power to use that intuitive gift for whatever he desires. In fact, if he only uses it to keep his own health in Thrive-mode– think of all the beauty the world will see because he is healthy in it.

Spiritual, Emotional, Physical, Environmental Foundations for Autism and Psychic Children

We all come here as part of our soul’s path to growth, and to assist in the growth of our collective soul (not the 90’s band… But our one true whole self). There is a lot that goes into the choice to incarnate in a specific time, place, body and with specific traits. It’s all for the growth of our ever expanding self. We make agreements. We choose our parents and our path. Let’s look into why a soul might incarnate as someone with autism and special psychic gifts at this time, and why more and more are doing so.

Spiritual Reasons Behind Autism

A soul with autism is a soul on a journey who has acquired enough wisdom to demonstrate to their brothers and sisters a more clear path to enlightenment. Many of them were around during times of ancient civilizations like Atlantis where they became well-versed in extremely advanced technologies. However, from a soul’s glance, they saw that humanity would not be accepting of old ways of teaching just yet. They needed to enter in a way that would get noticed, and this had to be quite extreme. They are advanced enough to understand how to flutter in and out of direct consciousness if things in their body get too difficult to handle, but they knowingly chose bodies that would get ill in order to bring healing and new perspective to the world.

Emotional Reasons Behind Autism

A soul with autism has been around since the beginning of time. They have felt pain and held it in until the time was right to release it through human existence. Now is that time when they are able to release the burden of being held back, silenced, poisoned, rejected etc. Emotional outbursts are beautiful cleanings their body was afforded because of their courageous spiritual gift to us. I see them clearing this in this lifetime.

Physical Reasons Behind Autism

A soul with autism often has problems in every physical bodily system. This is to show the earth that everything is connected. We lost our connection, and it has been decided by our collective self, that autism can be looked at as a physical symbol of what is happening on our planet. Problems often begin in the gut, which is symbolic of our core, root chakra and feminine energy. Autism shows us what we can physically do to connect spiritually, and what can happen if we don’t.

Environmental Reasons Behind Autism

A soul with autism is going to call out the negative for a great cleansing! It is going to be so sensitive to energies that hurt us all like vaccinations, GMO food, processed foods, and carcinogenic household cleaning tools, that humanity will be forced to notice. And, that soul will be so soothed by Earth’s natural healing vibrations that humanity will be forced to notice. It is meant for autism to be triggered by these energies, so that we as a race can be moved beyond relying on them — and instead nurture and rely on our planet.

Why 2012?

Time doesn’t mean all that much. Except, when you realize that this year and surrounding chunks of time have a specific SHIFT energy to them. We are truly evolving to the next phase. We are experiencing inter-planetary climate change. Forget global warming… It doesn’t exist. We are going through an evolutionary shift into higher consciousness. This consciousness is what connects us to our own psychic powers and to each other. You may notice that the population has risen and children with autism are on the rise too. Do not Blame environmental triggers. Yes, vaccines do trigger autism. Yes, we can prevent our kids from getting sick by choosing natural parenting, organic whole foods, natural immunizing — but souls with autism chose to be here to guide us into this shift. Help heal them now if they are sick. The sooner we realize that we, like them, need to listen to our bodily urges to sing, cry, dance, laugh or call out someone who is lying…. The sooner we won’t need autism. The sooner we can step into our own powerful psychic roles (whatever that means for us), the sooner we won’t need autism. It will no longer be classified as a disease or a disorder. Instead, you will look toward these people who were once labeled with it and ask for guidance. As we move forward on this path to enlightenment, we hit bumps in the road. We experience self doubt or we get sick. We can look at how the sickness behind autism is healed and we can learn how to heal our bodies and our minds. They chose to help us do this because they are really magnificent beings. And remember, they chose us to be their parents because they know we will always do right by them. Now, let us help them Thrive, so their message can be heard.

Check out this necessary video by David Wilcock. It speaks to all of the connections we have and what I believe autism and these children have come here to help us achieve.

Inspired By Today: Jennifer Carr, “Today You are You”

In case you didn’t know, I’ve got rockin friends. I’m a complete amalgamation of the inspirations bestowed upon me by the amazing people I know.  I love that I’ve called these relationships and experience into my life. A blog by my  friend Tricia Huffman, the one and only “Joyologist” inspired me to create a category here where I share  just who inspires me, and how they do it. So that you too can feel the BLISS.

Today, I am inspired by someone who has taken parent activism and home grown love and acceptance to new levels. Jennifer Carr is raising to beauties in the big city, and she somehow makes time to write books, speak in public, yoga it up and, write one of the best blogs I’ve ever read. 

Jen has a gender diverse child, and blogs about the great awakenings gifted to her as part of understanding, advocating for  and loving her child. She is a real mom who digs yoga and sometimes get stressed or confused and she shares that. I can so relate to the perfectionist in her who wants to help and get it all right all the time.

Like Jen, I have a child  whose uniqueness turned me into an activist for children’s health. I think we are all blessed with the perfect families and children who will teach us the life lessons we need to learn. Often, when I was searching for how to handle my  “problems” whole healing Dougie from autism, I steered away from “autism” websites.  I wanted something more inspiring. Something that told me everything will truly be okay.  Jennifer Carr’s site is like that.

“Today You are You ” is the name of her site, and a quote from one of my favorite authors, Dr. Suess.  Being YOU is all you really can be. So, when you really embrace that and decide that you are amazing, you will discover the many gifts you have. These are gifts that the world needs.

I believe that the world is in dire need of gender acceptance, and Love and Bliss for all of those who decide to be who they feel they truly are instead of who society pre-determines them to be. The energy of the world is shifting. Old systems are dying. These children are our future and they are creating quite a bright future. It’s parents like Jen, who actively clear the way for our children who are making that future possible.

I don’t have a gender diverse child. I don’t deal with exactly the same things that Jen does. But, I am constantly finding myself inspired by her posts and even using them to help me in my life and parenting.  We truly are all ONE.WE all want love and acceptance. We all want to be ourselves.

Today You are You, for real. What can you do today to be the youest you? What do you need to do to sigh that beautiful breath of relief that comes with being true to yourself. Do it! I’m here with you.

It’s important to note here that Jennifer Carr’s website is not only inspirational, but informational as well. If you know someone who needs help with raising and advocating for their gender diverse child , please send them to Jen’s site.

Much Love,

Gina

 

 

Autism Recovery: Autism Dads — You Can Embrace a Healthy Diet and Lifestyle!

When my son was born I thought that I was simply one of the luckiest parents on the planet.  He grew to have great communication and motor skills.  Moreover, he was happy.  He was the picture of health, and we did everything in our power to give him the best that could be provided by the highest recommended doctors that we could find.  Life was good, and then it happened… I took my son to get one too many vaccinations and my beautiful boy stopped smiling.  I couldn’t understand.  I thought that we were doing everything possible for him.

We took him back to the doctor to ask why he had stopped walking and talking.  They told us that he was just sick and prescribed him more medicine.  My wife looks back at those days and can still see the nurses trying to persuade us not to treat our child with these immunizations and antibiotics, but we couldn’t understand why they were directing us away from the doctors orders.  We were believers.  We thought that it was the best way, and there was nothing more important to us then getting our little Dougie back to perfect health.  Still, to hear them say that he was autistic and was never going to talk again seemed horrible.  How could they say that when they had all the medicine in the world to cure him.

We were dragging his little body through the mud of western medicine.  Destroying his immune system and making it impossible for him to heal.  It got to the point where he was refusing to eat anything but pizza.  So much for the natural foods full of nutrients that my wife had been making him from birth.  If he saw a pea on his plate he would throw a fit and refuse to eat.  I would say that he needed to go back to the doctor and my wife would urge me otherwise, stating that it wasn’t helping.  I couldn’t hear her though.

I had grown up watching my father go to work all day, come home and complain about it, and then go back out again.  I was bred to do one function and I had gotten pretty good at it.  I was in the legal field and it was paying me the money that I needed to provide my family with the medical treatment that I thought was necessary in today’s society.  With all the money that I was making I never learned how to budget out the resources to simply learn what was happening with my son.  I was in my preoccupation making money instead of time.

My wife refused to take my son to the doctor anymore, and said that she was going to learn about his health and why he had regressed into what the doctors labeled as autism.  She was reading and studying all the time, and stressed out to the max with a husband who was mad at her for not allowing the professionals to take care of our son.  I was so lost.  She changed his and her diet and encouraged me to join them, but I was too busy playing lawyer that I couldn’t hear her logic.  I would still eat dinner with them, but I would continue to eat the way that I had been, and they would eat what my wife had researched.

I didn’t fight her once I saw my son start to calm down, but I also didn’t join.  I learned the bare bones version of her health conquest so that way it was easy for me to feed Dougie while I was out alone with him.  It was terrible.  He hated his new food and I thought that he hated me for giving it to him.  I only wanted to see him happy.  If I had my way back then I would have just given him the pizza to watch him smile again.  I think that there are lots of men out there who understand exactly what I am saying here.  We just cant see the benefit in something if the immediate result is resentment.  Why bother with the health food when he is with me.  I only want to see him happy with the limited time that I had away from the job that supported his life.  Let the wife deal with recovery on her time.

Slowly, I started to see small improvements in my son over months of his diet change.  His mood started to change.  Every once in a while I started getting eye contact from him again.  I was turning into a believer.  He was eating better.  Living better.  My poor wife.  I agreed with the diet, but wouldn’t join her on it myself.  She would make food for them and then food for me.  Attempting to add in healthier and healthier options into my dinners.  I was fine with it, but would eat like crap at work when I was in my groove, not paying attention to what was going into my gut.  Tons of coffee and foods riddled with chemicals were the diet of choice at the firm.  I was working out every day, but not able to keep my body in shape.  I saw that Dougie and my wife were turning into a vision of health, but I couldn’t join them… not with the stress of my job.

Then, something amazing happened.  I was offered a way to move away and keep my position at the firm.  I was getting ulcers at the time and had started smoking quite frequently with the drama associated in a busy chicago-based law firm.  I jumped at the opportunity with an exasperated and immediate yes to the move.  We got rid of our possessions and only packed what we could fit into our little car.  A few weeks later we were in sunny California looking for the perfect home near Dougie’s school, and I was determined to finally learn what was going on with my wife and son.  Despite what all the so-called professionals who wanted to medicate our son had said, he had learned how to walk and talk again.

I started to learn.  It was hard.  Hard to believe and accept.  I was being poisoned by our supposedly secure food system.  Don’t believe that we are being poisoned?  I recommend that you go into your kitchen and start reading your own ingredient labels and research what all those unknown names are that they slip into our food.  My legal mind got mad.  No, make that furious.  I trusted and believed.  I voted for toxicity with my dollar every day.  I only had disease to show for all that money lost to fast food and poor health choices.  There was such an easier and better way to live that whole time.  But, I’m just a man, right?  I am too busy to think about health, right?  I needed to provide for my family and do that at any cost, right?  Wrong!!!!  I could never help my family by sitting on the sidelines acting like I cared by simply making money.  The only way for me to heal my family or anyone else was to heal myself.

I came out of my delusions and joined them in the healing process.  My family is thriving now.  We live a beautiful life full of joy and wonderment every day.  We love and live on a scale that I have no right to experience, and I thank God every day that we had the strength to pull through our confusion and come out on top.

To the lost/confused/skeptic, you are a wonderful being of light.  You have the ability to move mountains with your mind.  You can feel as perfect as you always wanted to.  There are no secrets here.  We all have the abilities that I only recently learned about.  I am not more or less than you.  We are all one, learning together.  I am proud to be here with you and wish you the best that life offers.

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

UnSchool of Life: Undoing the Mundane Routine

As a kid, I refused to wear jeans. From the ages of 9-13, stretchy pants were IT for me. It was a comfort thing, mostly.  I’m ultra sensitive to the touch of scratchy fabric. Still. But,  I also  needed to express my differences. I spent most of my days just on the outskirts of the “in” crowd, and was totally okay with it.  My husband grew up expressing his differences in the ways lots of boys do. I’m not at liberty to spill exactly what that means. But,  somewhere in our charts de destiny — we have been dreamily aligned to raise a “different” child. But, believe me — we didn’t set out to do anything outside the “norm” when it came to starting our family. We did the doctor appointments, the pampers, the birthing classes. Soon enough, that fizzled though. And, even before my little Dougie’s health began to decline — he was showing us that he was destined for something more. When it came to schooling, at first we opted to have him evaluated  for special services through the Chicago Public School system. It took them over a year to complete their evaluation, and by the time we had our  first IEP meeting — his label of “severely autistic” was obviously invalid. He was healing through Body Ecology, Raw Foods, and the energy healing and sensory work that we do at home.  Still,  we took the label in hopes of getting him more education. Dealing with  the red tape, “autism specialists,” and trudging through the snow to get my child to one hour of speech therapy and occupational therapy each week was draining on him.  After one year of speech therapy, he never talked for his teachers. And, just preparing him for the trip was hell on us. He tantrummed and begged not to go. When I observed Dougie in class, I noticed all of the distractions present in the public school. Bells ringing, intercom going on and off, other teachers walking in, teachers stopping to discipline other kids and more. We tried private school and absolutely loved their routine and core belief structure. But, then there was the price and the fact that Dougie still wasn’t THRIVING. By this time, we took lots more care to teach him at home. Teachers were telling me that I should be worried that he wasn’t talking. I thought, “how could he talk when his gut is a mess?” He was healing, and all of the “teachers” and “authority figures” around him were trying to put information into him, and make him do things. But, Dougie needs to express things, let go of things, be absorbed in positivity, live out loud. Dougie needs to be free. He knew from the start that only I understood that, and I think that’s why he chose me. I remember being reminded over and over how important it is for children. “especially those on the spectrum” (ugh “the spectrum”… sheesh!) to have a  strict routine. Yeah, I see how that can help settle an overactive mind. We all crave structure for balance. But, that sure doesn’t mean commanding your children to do certain things or be a certain way. Our Daily Structure is Important to Us My goal is to get out of Dougie’s way so that he can thrive without having to depend on me forever. I don’t want him fully dependent on a specific routine. Much of my own success comes from being able to handle change. It’s all I know. So, it’s how we roll here. I know many children whose stories are similar to Dougie’s, and if  one of these children calls you mama or dad — just know that they chose you for a reason. If the homeschool or unschool bus is honking its horn at you — you can jump on.  Remember, I was told to worry because it’s well known that our  kids crave even more structure than the “norm.” Worrying has never done me any good. Ever. The Routine of No Routine Unschooling is reteaching my family how to live and be  with each other in deeper love and more productive ways. We feel we lost a lot of time worrying and working hard to do what was normal for our child. Here’s a glimpse into our day. maybe it will help you to:

  • Make and eat breakfast together (Dougie helps cut veggies, scramble eggs, pour smoothies, push blender buttons and choose what he wants. He also helps clean up).
  • Get dressed and spend some outdoor time at beach or park. We often bring toys or books and “work” outside.
  • Go to the store or market (Dougie fills his own cart, asks for what he wants and orders at the juice bar or deli. He also pays the cashier and talks to the workers at our local store. We often eat lunch outside.
  • Come home, light cleaning all together and play time for Dougie (he plays puppet show, Toy Story toys, paints, this is his alone time).
  • Nap time
  • More outdoor time, outside class like yoga or music, park or playdate.
  • Reading, art, music, math through games, puppet show or whatever we feel like — so long as it’s fun and creative.

We sign Dougie up for a few low-key activities where he can get time away and explore. He loves his yoga class. We also try to help him forge relationships with other children. He has his favorite friends and loves to play with his cousins. We take trips all over the city, show Dougie how to use the bus and read the signs, allow him to experience the different cultures we have here, and visit beautiful places. We walk, we climb, we never stop enjoying. Dougie is kindergarten age, and has learned all of this kindergarten lessons through play and fun. What a life! xoxo Gina

Autism Healing: Our Kids Want to Know

we are moving all of our blogs over from Heal Artfully in order to solidify our mission in one place. This was originally published in January 2011.

Dougie began  conversing with us when he was four. Before that, he really only used scripted or repetitive language.  I used to wonder if he was getting it.. if he was absorbing the true meaning of the words we said to him. Of course, as mothers we learn to read the signals in their energy and body language — and we certainly often feel that they “get it.” But, who doesn’t want proof? Our proof began to  appear when we got Dougie some dolls and stuffed animals and observed how he played with them. We’d see him cuddling, feeding, changing diapers, putting them to sleep — in his own way. So we played off this and began staging puppet shows and made up stories that re-iterated what we thought were important lessons. When Dougie started talking, he was so excited and proud of himself (and still is) that he rarely stops talking. He has so much to say, and every day he shows us that he is fully aware. He even brings up moments from the past. So, if you ever have doubt that your child understands you — keep talking and playing with them. Keep parenting at your best. Keep telling them that you know they get it and you understand them. Teach them everything you would teach a child who gave you clear signals of their understanding. They not only get it.. but they will use it. These minds are gorgeous minds and love knowledge. Fill them up with all the stories in your head, mamas and dads. One day, you will be in awe as those very stories are relayed back to you in complete awareness. Rock On! You can do this! Gina

Bliss Tour, Chocolate, Reiki and a Sustainable Lifestyle

This Post was originally written in January 2011, at the beginning of our Bliss Tour! It’s cool to see how far we’ve come — buying and selling the RV, traveling the US and living in Mexico for 6 months. Life is BLISS!

Back in December 2010, I drew the “retreat card” from a deck of angel cards and the events that have ensued have been crazy style amazing.  I gotta say that as an energy worker and one who constantly witnesses the results of the “super natural” in action –I’m quite the skeptic. I’m not one for tarot cards. I’m not one for listening to “guides” or psychics — UNLESS the messages ring true for me on a deep level. I mean logic has got to play some role in my decision-making.

That retreat card symbolized the simple sustainable adventurous life that Doug and I have dreamed of our whole lives. 2 years ago, the same energy brought us to Santa Monica, CA to get healthier, expand our minds and our business ideas. Things just move fast in Bliss Land.

We’re growing so quickly, we can’t help but feel the urge to use that expansive energy to spread the Bliss to you. I recently wrote a blog titled “How your intuition can save the world.” This trip is my husband’s and my intuitive answer to the next step in fulfilling our purpose.

How can we all live a more sustainable, Blissy, earth-loving life?

We hope to find out. Purging more possessions and gearing up to live in and travel via RV (on veggie fuel and/or zero emissions vehicles), composting, wild food forging, planting, unschooling, sharing from our hearts will  help us discover that. So will connecting with all of you.

We feel that there is a better way to feel good and accomplish your goals, and we’re on the road to discover that. It’s time to change things around. Re-allocate the wealth to the people, shift our priorities and wake up to what we can do to help.

Our gift is primarily our energy and our experience. By giving of our truest selves we hope to inspire you to do the same and find your purpose.

Life on the Road

Do you know that at the rate of waste that we create — we actually require the equivalent of 3 planet earths to manage our crap? We cannot subscribe to that which so deeply harms our planet… anymore.

Need the Bliss Machine

We’re in search of a used RV that can be made to run on veggie fuel or some other sustainable fuel. We’re jumping without the net because our message has to get out there. If you know of an RV for sale…  (or rent, buy, barter or borrow) send the deets our way.

Look Forward To

We’re hosting camping retreats, classes, potlucks and offering all of our current coaching and healing services. The only difference is that this time – it’s very likely we’ll be able to talk and work with you in person. Check our Tour Events link for scheduled cities, and blogs for our latest updates.

Reiki

We’ll be incorporating energy Healing and Reiki in most of our workshops. Our final Santa Monica (Reiki Level 1 and 2) certification class before we leave, takes place this Saturday April 23. Please email me at Gina@BlissedLife.com if you’d like to join us.

Host Us in Your Area

Contact us if you’d like to host a class in your home or town. Hosts get free classes and private sessions.
