Autism


A Handbook for Parents of Children of Spirit

I have just finished reading the new  “Empowering Your Indigo Child – A Handbook for Parents of Children of Spirit” by Wayne Dosick, PhD and Ellen Kaufman Dosick, MSW, published by Weiser Books.

I highly recommend it to all parents or caregivers of today’s children.

This book not only offers helpful, detailed descriptions of some of the kids today, (they focus on Indigo children) but included are three separate processes to help heal energetic issues carried by all sensitive people, but especially the children.

The Dosicks have published these inspired processes which include fun, guided games for parents to play along with their children.

The book contains 3 parts, along with an introduction. Part 1 is “The 17″ Spiritually Healing Children’s Emotional Wounds. These are games for parents and children aged 7-17. Part 2 is ” Gracelight”, the process for Weaving Harmony for the Littlest Indigos ages 0-7. And Part 3 is” The Point of Essence Process”, which is Pro-Claiming the Truth of Who You Are. This process is for 18 years and up.

My 14 year old son and I performed “The 17” yesterday and I experienced myself becoming emotional several times when he and I connected on such intimate levels. I realized that I had not been really seeing and supporting him as clearly as I thought I had been and I think he felt a closer bond with me after we were through as well.

The games were fun and easy and didn’t take that much time to complete.

I also performed Part 3, The Point of Essence Process for myself and then with my husband. I felt an immediate calming within.

I think this book would benefit any parent and child who invest the small amount of time it takes to play the games. The outcome may surely be relaxation and connectedness to one another as well as the environment, which can benefit everyone, young and old.

“Empowering your Indigo Child” will be released on March 1, 2009 on Amazon.com. You can order your copy today. Buy 2 and give one as a gift!

This video is part 3 of 4 parts. You can find the other parts on youtube. I thought this one was most relevant in explaining what we currently label “autism”. The beginning of part 3 is referring to autistic children.

LONDON – It wasn’t until Jude met Jenny that the 3-year-old autistic boy understood what happy people look like.

Jenny, a green tram with a human face, had a furrowed brow when her wheel buckled and she got stuck on a track. But after being rescued by friends, she smiled broadly — and that’s when something clicked for little Jude Baines.

“It was revelatory,” his mother, Caron Freeborn told AP Television News in Cambridge, England. Before watching the video, Jude didn’t understand what emotions were and never noticed the expressions on people’s faces, even those of his parents or younger brother.

Jenny’s adventures are part of a DVD for autistic children released this week in the United States called The Transporters.

The DVD teaches autistic children how to recognize emotions like happiness, anger and sadness through the exploits of vehicles including a train, a ferry, and a cable car.

It is the brainchild of Simon Baron-Cohen, director of the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University. He also happens to be a cousin of Sacha Baron-Cohen, the comedian behind the characters Ali G, the aspiring rapper, and Borat, the crass Kazakh reporter.

Baron-Cohen first became interested in autism in the 1980s while teaching autistic children. “Why should social interaction be so difficult for a child who has very good skills in other areas like memory or an attention to detail?” he wondered.

About a decade ago, Baron-Cohen suggested that autism — which is much less likely to afflict girls — might be an extreme version of the typical male brain. Men tend to understand the world via patterns and structure, whereas women are more inclined to understand emotions and sympathize with others.

Autism, Baron-Cohen believes, is a condition where people perceive systems and patterns while remaining almost oblivious to other people and their feelings.

To help autistic children understand emotions, Baron-Cohen and his team use eight track-based vehicles in their DVD. The vehicles have human faces grafted onto them, making focusing on human features unavoidable. The video was financed by the British government.

“To teach autistic children something they find difficult, we needed an autism-friendly format,” Baron-Cohen said. Autistic children are particularly drawn to predictable vehicles that move on tracks like trains and trams.

“Autistic children are often puzzled by faces, so this video helps focus on them in a way that makes it very appealing and soothing,” said Uta Frith, an emeritus professor of cognitive development at University College London, who was not involved in developing the video.

Frith said the DVD was a way for autistic children to learn social skills the way other children might learn math or a foreign language.

In a small study of 20 autistic children between ages 4 and 7, Baron-Cohen and colleagues found that autistic children who watched the video for at least 15 minutes a day for one month had caught up with normal children in their ability to identify emotions.

But Baron-Cohen cautioned that while autistic children might be able to recognize emotions better after watching the DVD, that would not necessarily change their behavior at home or on the playground.

“This is not some kind of miracle cure,” he said. “It just shows that if you have the opportunity to practice these social skills, you can improve.”

Other experts said the video was not a replacement for working and playing with real people.

“You can’t just park your child in front of this for hours and go to the other room,” said Catherine Lord, director of the Autism and Communication Disorders Center at the University of Michigan. “This will hopefully start interactions or play sequences that kids can then play with real people.”

When the DVD was released in Britain in 2007, Baron-Cohen and colleagues distributed 40,000 copies free to families with an autistic child or to doctors working with them.

The DVD sells for $57.50 and includes interactive quizzes and a booklet for parents and teachers. It is available online at http://www.thetransporters.com. Half of the profits go to autism charities and research, and the other half goes to Changing Media Development, the company Baron-Cohen launched with colleagues.

Similar videos have been produced, but Lord said those have struggled to capture children’s attention. In Baron-Cohen’s study, some parents reported that their children watched the DVD hundreds of times within a month.

Freeborn said The Transporters DVD has made a “massive difference” for Jude and their family.

“(Jude) now understands what disgusted is, which is quite important if you have a younger brother,” she said.

Check out http://www.whatsuponplanetearth.com to read about the latest energetic scene on the planet. Karen Bishop receives some very accurate information from “above” and writes about it at great length. I happen to agree with her description of autistic children as well as the ones we label indigo, crystalline, etc.

I personally don’t agree with labeling children. I prefer to just know they are here for their own purpose, just as the rest of us are, which is why no one is any better or worse then another. I prefer to support them in their growth and allow them to “be” as they need and want to “be”. I don’t pretend to know what that purpose is or that anyone’s purpose is even any of my business. This includes my own children.

This is why I feel it is incredibly inappropriate for anyone, (parent, teacher, etc.) to tell another, (child, friend, etc.) what they should do with their life. There’s no way to know what that child has on their spiritual list of things to experience here on Earth, just as it’s not possible for anyone to know what your purpose is. Bottom line – mind your own business and be an example of someone who is living a life you love by doing what you love in every moment of every day. It is possible.

Here’s a question written by one of Karen’s readers:

My twins are on the autistic spectrum. I have read about crystal/indigo children and autism, does it have implications in ascension?

Thanks,

C.

I don’t know much about the labels you describe, but I have had experience with autistic children. They are truly awesome indeed. They literally have one foot in one dimension and another foot in another dimension…much like us now! Autistic children are easy for higher vibrating individuals to interact with because they are at more similar levels and they can “see” each other. Autistic children are here to bridge the gap by holding a line of connection between dimensions. This is why the incidence of autism has skyrocketed in recent years. Our new children, or those you refer to as crystals and indigos, have a bit of a different purpose. More information about them can be found in an answer further along in this Questions & Answers section.

I had a thought…what if there really wasn’t anything “wrong” with autistic children and adults, but they were actually here on earth to help facilitate the creating of new communities?

Time to Rise to the Occasion

As far as I can see, we are all now fully functioning or capable of functioning from higher levels of awareness. All of us have full access to multidimensional perception NOW and we can all tune into it at will. The children see this clearly and are therefore really pushing us again to wake up to the reality that there is so much more for us to experience. They are pushing us to be present in every aspect of our being and they are asking us to finally release the emotional bondage that keeps us in “less than” mode. I have watched children over the last month clearly reflect the “less than” beliefs of the adults in their lives. They are trying to help us understand the limited way in which we see ourselves and how that reflects what we create in our lives. During a recent classroom consult, I watched a child, labeled Autistic, literally beat up on his teacher. He kicks, bites and spits, but only her. She asked why he would do this to her. When I suggested that he was simply reflecting what she does to herself, she fell silent. The children are demonstrating, the lack of tolerance that we have for ourselves.

How can we think so poorly of ourselves, when so much is available to us? How can we not see the miraculous way that the Universe has provided every opportunity for us to grow and know ourselves as Divine children? We can not see because, we have not been taught to see in this way. Please stretch yourselves. Please use your children as a looking glass. Please ask yourself the hard questions and please know that your children are not punishing you by their behaviors. They are not telling you that you are “less than”, they are showing you the way through it. They are asking you to feel what has been unfelt and know the parts of yourself that have been unknown. They are pushing you through to new levels of personal awareness that you have forgotten. Their acting out, is not easy on them either, but we all said that we would be a pure reflection for each other.

Please rise above the obvious to see the magnificence that takes place for us in every moment. Please release your limited view of what is possible, so that we can all see this new reality. Please allow the old structures to crumble, knowing full well that the new has already been created. How do we do that, you might ask?

We just did!

If in doubt, please re-read the paragraph and feel the release.

From the children, through me, with love,

Suzy

A recent insight I have had about myself is that I no longer need to go out seeking those who I believe need my help and support, but to allow those needing anything from me to seek me out.

Therefore I have decided to discontinue hosting the monthly meetings, however I would be open to speaking, if invited, at any relevant gathering someone else coordinated.

I wish to thank all those who attended the meetings and to say that I did get a lot from them myself. I always left the gatherings with a joyful heart and a renewed hope for the children.

My focus now is on helping expand enrollment at Big Rock Sudbury School in Novato. http://www.bigrock.org. An amazing school that I would highly recommend to any parent who wishes for a place their child can grow up to be completely self responsible and completely self sufficient. It’s truly a place where children can explore their own passions and dreams without any judgement from anyone.

Thank you all!
