Discovering Ourselves through Parenting

Expanding Awareness (Thank you, autism)

autismpositivity2013button2The next stage of human evolution will be marked by awareness that we are all interdependent cells within the super-organism called humanity.
Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. and Steve Bhaerman in Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future (And a Way to Get There from Here)

I find immeasurable value in Awareness, the state of being able to perceive, feel, and be conscious of people, ideas, and patternsSince I first heard the word autism (December 2000), my Awareness expanded exponentially. My worldview widened, and continues to grow. I evolved, and continue to evolve.

 Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed.
Thich Nhat Hanh

Before autism (and my children) expanded my Awareness, I was very certain of what I should do, how people should act, and how the world should be. Because my children didn’t match my image of how children were supposed to be, because I loved them, and because I wanted to be the mother they needed, I softened. I realized the value of being like bamboo, flexible and bending with changing conditions. I recognized the importance of acknowledging when I was wrong. I learned to be different from the mother I’d been expecting to be. Without the gift of autism, I would be shallower, more narrow-minded, and more rigid.

The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.
Albert Einstein

The diversity that we observe in individuals today demonstrates that there is no one optimal way to be. We can expand our Awareness by interacting, working, and playing with one another. We can learn to communicate with words and beyond words, recognizing that the task learning to communicate across styles does not fall to any group, but is a task for all.

It is not survival of the fittest, but cooperation, interaction, and mutual dependence among life forms that allows for the global expression of life.
Lynn Margulis in Symbiosis in Cell Evolution

The spectrum of people on the planet today is an invitation to see the essence of one another. It is an invitation to look with new eyes and listen with new ears, and to perceive with our hearts or our senses. It is an invitation to expand our perceptions and evolve. It is an opportunity to embrace uniqueness and individuality while recognizing our oneness.

Autism rocked by world in the most amazing way possible. Read more in my post Work in Progress and in the book that tells my story, and those of other changed mothers, Swan Mothers: Discovering Our True Selves by Parenting Uniquely Magnificent Children.

What’s Your Story and How Can You Evolve?

The Kabbalah describes angels as bundles of light, meaning intelligence and consciousness. Kabbalists believe that above every blade of grass is an angel crying “Grow! Grow!”  I believe that above the entire human race is one super-angel, crying “Evolve! Evolve!”

Steven Pressfield in The War of Art

In captivity, a baby elephant is tied to a post with a rope. No matter how he pulls, he cannot get free. When the elephant matures, putting a rope around his leg will keep him in place. Even though he could easily free himself, he does not. He has long-since resigned himself to the all-powerfulness of the rope.

This limiting belief about his own strength was programmed in his youth. It keeps the adult elephant tethered and docile.

People too are programmed early in life. We get so accustomed to living our stories that soon we don’t realize that we are now all grown up and can break that rope and live free.

What story are you telling ? What is the story teaching your child? Do you see autism as a curse? Can you see it as a gift?

Two Natures of Human Existance

Throughout history, people have noted two natures of human existence:

1.    Static

2.    Dynamic

1. History Repeats Itself

Static stories are based on predictable, repeating patterns in nature.  The static nature of our existence is symbolized by the circle or the ouroboros and illustrated in the changing seasons and the path of the Earth around the sun.

This is the pattern we see in our families.

“He’s just like my father,  jumping all over the place.  He just can’t sit still.”

“My family has a history of depression…”  or lying, or abandoning people, or being left-handed.

2. LifeSpiral2Evolution

Dynamic stories demonstrate progress based on evolution and learning. Human behavior changes dramatically when people encounter new information and experiences.

The dynamic nature of our existence is symbolized by arrow or a zooming rocket.

Predictable Cycles and Dramatic Leaps Occur Simultaneously

People who live close to the land survive by living in harmony with nature. Progress is not required.

Those in the modern world are preoccupied with progress.

“Unfortunately, the glamour of technology has eclipsed humanity’s connection with Nature, and the pursuit of technological advancement has contributed to disharmony, imbalance, and global crisis.” (Bruce Lipton and Steve Bhaerman in Spontaneous Evolutionp. 46.)

Lipton and Bhaerman say that uniting the principles of harmony and balance with the principles of technological evolution leads to a self-sustaining and thriving civilization symbolized by a universe-friendly spiral of evolution.

The spiral is also the symbol of the Wise Woman tradition.

A spiral always returns to itself, but never repeats. “Spirals remind us that live is movement, that each moment is unique, and that form is the essence of transformation.” (Susun Weed in Healing Wise, p. 11.)

Jump Off the Hamster Wheel and Evolve

Two hundred species a day die to support human existence. This matters because we are not separate from non-human life on Earth. We are part of it.

Since the time of the Fertile Crescent, we have been shifting away from balance and harmony. Our way of life is not sustainable.

Our children are experiencing life on Earth differently from us to show us that humanity’s way of life must change if we are to survive.

(To read much more about this, please see the work of Daniel Quinn.)

When you find yourself on a vicious cycle, for goodness sakes, stop peddling!
~ Swami Beyondananda (Spontaneous Evolution, p. 85)

What we must have – and nothing less – is a whole world full of people with changed minds.
~ Daniel Quinn (If They Give You Lined Paper Write Sideways, p. 180)

Just as the people of the Middle Ages could not have predicted the Renaissance, we cannot envision what the change that sustains the world will ultimately look like. We do know that we must return to living harmony with all creation.

The founding slogan of the United States is “out of many, one.” Let us watch our children. Let’s learn from them — and evolve.

You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
~ Khalil Gibran (The Prophet, On Children)

Everything will change when your desire to move on exceeds your desire to hold on.
~ Alan Cohen

Give Me a Child Until He’s Seven

Give me the child for seven years and I will give you the man is a quote attributed to the Jesuits who believed that a person’s belief system evolves within a child’s infancy and that a Jesuit upbringing would make the adult a confirmed Jesuit. Modern science validates this belief. Between gestation and six years of age, what we hear, see, and experience lays the foundation of our core beliefs about ourselves and the world.

If we are lucky, these beliefs form a basis for feeling confident, connected, and loved. Unfortunately, less supportive beliefs also develop. The very coping mechanisms that keep a child safe may cause significant challenges for the adult the child becomes.

  • If a baby cries and cries and no one responds, she may conclude: I’m not loveable.
  • A child who is ignored might decide:  I’m not important or worth hearing.
  • Spilling his milk or being the last in class to learn to read may lead a boy to think: I’m stupid. I can’t do anything right.

In my previous post, I wrote about the new biology that shows that genes do not control biology, but rather are used by biology. In this post, we will explore the next question.

What is controlling our genes and our experience of life?

The science of epigentics (beyond genetics) reveals that epigenetic mechanisms can edit the readout of a gene to create 30,000 variations of proteins from the same gene blueprint.[1]

Gene activation is influenced by both our inner and outer environments. Our inner environment includes our emotions, biochemistry, mental processes, and sense of the spiritual. Our outer environment includes the food we eat, the toxins we are exposed to, and our social rituals.[2] Most of these are in our control.

If we can think, believe and eat our way to health and happiness, why are so many people sick and miserable?

It turns out that “Think positive!” is easier said than done thanks to the power of the subconscious mind. While the conscious mind can express free will, the subconscious mind primarily expresses habitual stimulus response. [3]

The subconscious mind interprets and responds to 40,000,000 impulses per second.

This is why you can walk and chew gum at the same time, talk while driving, and brush your teeth while half-asleep.

The conscious mind processes about 40 nerve impulses per second.

Yes, 40. How can it keep up with the subconscious mind? It can’t.

The subconscious is in control 95 percent of the time.

Essential information for parenting today’s Uniquely Magnificent Children.

Between birth and two years old, babies are mostly in a state of delta brainwave activity. From two to six, they are predominantly in the theta state.

Delta and theta are the brainwave states that hypnotherapists induce in clients to make them more suggestible.

With our children in the state of easy influence, everything we say and do is of utmost importance. Children cannot comprehend that a parent is dissatisfied with an action (perhaps a slammed door) rather than being dissatisfied with them as a human being.

They will develop coping mechanisms to keep themselves safe. (If I am very quiet, no one will notice me and I won’t get hit.) Some will be based on false premises. These perceptions will become the fundamental subconscious programs that shape the character of the individual’s life. (I can’t speak up! No one ever hears me.)

Everything we say and do matters.

It is important to realize that our own core beliefs were imprinted by age six. That is why despite our best efforts, we find ourselves re-acting. We say words we swore we’d never say and behave in opposition to our intentions.

Fortunately, what has been programmed can be reprogrammed.

“Becoming conscious of our subconscious beliefs and programming is the gateway to spontaneous evolution.”[4]

Processes like Matrix Reimprinting are our way out of old programs that have been playing and replaying themselves in our life patterns, in our words, and in our experiences. Matrix Reimprinting allows us to rewrite our past experiences to transform our future.

I mess up every day.

This information can be empowering – or a basis for firming up a belief that you are inadequate as a parent and human being. Choose to let it be empowering. Remember to breath to center yourself. Speak kindly and gently to your children. Be present for them.

When you revert to old patterns or lose control, forgive yourself and move on. I do not know anyone who always says and does the right things. Certainly not I.

“Life is about making mistakes,” said the Teacher.  “Cells went on reproducing themselves in exactly the same way for millions of years until one of them made a mistake, and introduced change into the endless cycle of repetition.

“It was a mistake that set the world in motion,” said the Teacher.  “Never be afraid of making a mistake.”

The Role of Genes in Spontaneous Evolution

In a recent post, I wrote about my meeting with Bruce Lipton, Ph.DIn this post, I continue to share information from his book (with Steve BhaermanSpontaneous Evolution:  Our Positive Future (And a Way to Get There from Here) and my thoughts about how it relates to today’s Uniquely Magnificent children.

Where’s the Brain?

Genes are in the nucleus of the cell.  Since genes are presumed to control life, many people believe that the nucleus is the brain of the cell.  But when the nucleus is removed from a cell, the cell continues to function normally until it needs to replace protein parts.  Organisms die when the brain is removed.  So . . .

Genes are simply blueprints used to make protein parts.

Like the blueprints for a house, they cannot be turned off or on. Genes are just information until someone (or something) uses them to create a (protein) structure.

Where’s the brain? 

New-Edge Biology teaches us that the cell membrane is the brain of the cell.

The Cell is Not a Bag of Solution


The picture of a cell that we studied in school (top image) is outdated. As biologists study cells, they are discovering more and more structures. They have also determined that cells are not isolated by their membranes.

Protein switches are built into the membrane and cells are connected to their surroundings (bottom image).

Signals from the environment of the cell activate these switches. Thus, the switches transmit information from the outside to the inside of the cell. This information is used to initiate activities that enable the cell to sustain its life.

Signals from the ever-changing environment direct cell function. Perceptions of the environment control (cell) behavior.

Bruce and Steve write:

“…the fact that perceptions control behavior at both the cellular and the human level – is the real secret to life!”

At least one third of all medical healing are attributed to the placebo effect.

When an inert substance is ingested, people sometimes experience unpleasant reactions or “side-effects” – even though they are ingesting a sugar pill.  This is called the nocebo effect.

Dis-ease

If cell function is the result of the interaction between proteins and their complimentary signals,there can be only two real causes of dis-ease:

  1. Defective proteins
  2. Distorted signal

According to Spontaneous Evolution, 95% of the human population arrives on this planet with a perfectly functional set of gene blueprints.Thus, most dis-ease manifestations can be attributed to a disrupted signal.

How Signals Get Disrupted and How to Correct the Disruptions

1.     Trauma

Physical injuries disrupt the flow of energy in the body by causing physical and energetic kinks and blocks in information pathways. A misaligned spin, broken bones, and torn muscles may result in the distortion of information being exchanged between the brain, cells, tissues, and organs.

·         Correct trauma on the spot by using homeopathic first aid remedies.

See Super-Easy Homeopathic First Aid for a list of the seven remedies I always carry and how to use them.

·         Are you or your child experiencing the effects of older traumas?

If you have never been well since that car accident/that fall/that time you got really sick, homeopathy or matrix reimprinting may help.

2.     Toxicity

Toxic chemicals from vaccines, cleaners, pesticides, carpets, and food additives can remain in our bodies. They distort the signal’s information on its path between the nervous system and the targeted cells and tissues.

·         Homotoxicological remedies stimulate the detoxification and healing processes.

If you believe that toxicity is a disruptive factor for your child, you can read more about homotoxicology and homeotherapeutics here.

3.     Thought

Thoughts create reality. If the mind misinterprets signals and generates an inappropriate response, necessary functions may be severely disrupted. (Consider a person with anorexia who sees herself as fat, when she is in fact starving.)

·         Change your beliefs with EFT and Matrix Reimprinting

Matrix Reimprinting can transform the limiting, self-sabotaging beliefs most of us have acquired from our life experiences.

What If Everything We Know is Wrong?

“What If Everything You Know is Wrong!”

Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. and Steve Bhaerman in Spontaneous Evolution:  Our Positive Future (And a Way to Get There from Here.)

What would happen if the impossible became possible?

What if we could make it happen?

Steve Bhaerman (writing as Swami Beyondananda) says: The best way to face the unknown is by not knowing.

How is your perception of your child shaped by what you “know?”

If you have a child that is very different from the child you expected, you may have had him or her evaluated by a psychiatrist or a developmental pediatrician. Perhaps this professional provided you a list of the things your child will never do. And you believed her.

  • He will never talk or ride a bike.
  • She will never have friends or a social life.
  • He will never have a job and live on his own.
  • She will never play creatively.
  • He will never understand idioms or humor.
  • She will never go to college.
  • He will never get married.

We are influenced by what we see and hear and read.

When we engage experts to evaluate our children, we hope that they will provide useful information. We think that they hold some key that will help us to help our children.

Sometimes, we do receive useful information. Too often though, we are handed a list of problems and “defects” along with a recommendation for weekly therapies that are to go on for years.

What would happen if we believed something different from the prognosis we are given?

People do impossible things every day.

  • People walk on fire. Those who expect the coals to burn them, get burned. Those who don’t, don’t.
  • Twice a year, 50,000 people of the Bakhtiari tribe of Persia walk for days in snow and ice over at 15,000 foot mountain pass during their annual migrations. They walk barefoot.
  • Mothers lift cars that fall on their children.
  • A small group of fundamentalists known as Free Pentecostal Holiness Church drink poison but are not harmed because they believe that God is protecting them.
  • Every day, spontaneous remissions occur and patients who have been told that they will certainly die, recover.

How do people accomplish these impossible feats?

They suspend their limiting beliefs and shift to an unshakeable belief that they will succeed in their mission. Bruce and Steve write: “The hardest part about the belief game is that you either believe something or you don’t – there is no middle ground.”

How to Change Your Beliefs About Your Child — and Yourself

1.  Make a list of what you believe about your child (or yourself.) You may include items such as:

  • My life will always be difficult (with this child).
  • My child will never _______________.
  • My child always _______________.
  • I’m a bad parent (because ________________).

2.  Give each statement a validity rating on a scale of 0 to 10, where 0 is not true at all and 10 is very true or very intense. This is a subjective, internal rating of the intensity of feeling you have about the truth of the statement.  When you ask yourself, “How true is this for me?” write down the number that pops into your head.
3.  Use the basic EFT recipe to begin shifting the hold these beliefs have on you. Do a round (or more) of tapping using as many of the following phrases. Modify the statements or add your own to accommodate your own individual feelings.

  • Even though my life will always be difficult, I’m still a good person.
  • Even though my child will never ________, I can love him AND myself anyway.
  • Even though I’m a bad parent because I _________, I’m doing my best and that’s enough for now.
  • Even though my child always _________ and it’s so (frustrating, embarrassing, painful), I choose to love her and myself anyway.

4.  After a few rounds of tapping, give each statement a validity rating again. Are your feelings less intense or more? As you tapped, did memories or feelings come up? If yes, you can continue tapping on these new feelings. If the memories or feelings are very intense, breathe deeply, imagining the breath flowing into your heart. Stop tapping if this feels right. 

5.  If the feelings are less intense, look at the statements again. Consider how you can begin shifting your beliefs. Start small! Choose something positive and new that you can believe and that you can see relatively quickly. Perhaps you can envision your child putting on one article of clothing without protest or allowing you to place a new food on his plate.  If you don’t believe that your child will get dressed easily, can you believe that there is a possibility that she will be more cooperative.

6. Continue to believe a new impossible thing every day.

Did you know?

Many people with multiple personalities change eye color in the short interval it takes to transition from one ego to the next. Some have scars in one personality that disappear as another personality emerges. Many exhibit allergies and sensitivities in one personality but not another. (Spontaneous Evolution, p. 15)

You can learn how to change your beliefs too. Join one of my mothers’ circles.

Beliefs Create Biology

“…collective beliefs of a culture or society also affect our personal biology or behavior.”

Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D. and Steve Bhaerman in Spontaneous Evolution: Our Positive Future (And a Way to Get There from Here.(Emphasis mine.)

What is your reaction upon reading that? It is easy to agree that cultural and societal beliefs and norms affect our behavior. But can beliefs affect our biology?

Our behavior certainly affects our biology. On a fundamental level, the foods we eat, the beverages we drink, and the air we breathe become our body. While we are eating an apple, we see it as separate from ourselves. Within a few hours, we experience that apple as ourselves.

What is it within us that creates human beings from apples? Something within us changes an apple into a human being.

This same something can re-wire our brains (and change our biology) beyond social upbringing, family situations, and genetics.

(Thanks to Sadhguru for this insight.)

The Earth and the biosphere (which includes each of us) are an integrated living system.

If our beliefs are creating our bodies, our experiences, and our Planet, what would happen if most of us changed our beliefs?

What do you believe is the future of our children?

What do you believe about life?

Most of us have a whole series of limiting core beliefs such as:

  1. I don’t deserve an easy life.
  2. I’ll never have enough money/love/happiness.
  3. I’m stupid/ugly/unlovable.
  4. I’m being punished because I’ve done some bad things.

How has your child has changed your fundamental beliefs about life? Tell me in the comments or visit the Swan Mothers page on FaceBook.

Autism Heals Me

“Children on the autism spectrum are given space to grow at their own pace. There is no forcing them to do anything. I have taken this to heart. I have learned to accept my processes, even if at some point I thought they were wrong or not good enough. These children have healed me of judging myself, of comparing myself to other women, they have shown me the importance of silence. They have given me space to create. So many children on the autism spectrum have creative gifts, they are amazing artists, singers, and creatives. They have gifts, and they have made me shine the line on my own gifts.” Well said, Shane!

Your Beautiful Child

On Your Beautiful Child Radio I have asked many guests “what does autism mean to you,” There were many answers. My answer is FREEDOM. Today the official Autism Awareness Day.  I realize how deeply this answer rings true.    Because of autism, I have a work schedule I create, I have traveled and connected with amazing families, I have purpose and passion in my life, I have permission to create and just be.

My first student (with autism)  was non-verbal and had many “stimming” repetitive behaviors and echolalia.  I began to see a young boy do whatever he needed and wanted to do to make himself happy. He was not offfected by the judgements  of others. He did not follow what was “appropriate.” He was also not impressed with my cool toys, my happy smile or my eagerness to work with him. He could not naturally be re-directed or manipulated…

Homeopathy and Verbal First Aid for Easier Doctor Visits

If your child is dreading a visit to the doctor, homeopathic remedies and supportive words can help ease the anxiety. Injections and blood draws can be particularly upsetting, even when administered by kind and gentle nurses and technicians. (More invasive procedures are not addressed in this article, though you will be able to modify these suggestions for any situation.)

Parent’s Attitudes are Contagious

If you yourself are afraid of the forthcoming procedures or are worried about your child’s reaction, he or she will likely mirror your feelings and attitude. You may have had painful experiences in medical settings and your reason for concern in cemented in your body and mind.

The first step in making a visit to the doctor easier for your child is to do your own work using Matrix Reimprinting with EFT, journaling, or another transformative energy method so that you can feel better about the upcoming event. This does not mean that you have to feel happy about difficult situations. All feelings are valid.  In doing the work, you make a shift to a place of feeling better by replacing fear with knowledge and acknowledging your fears. When you change your old programming, you will be equipped to support your child and speak up as needed.

Preparing Your Child with Words

This section is inspired by and borrows from Chapter 5 of Verbal First Aid: Help Your Kids Heal from Fear and Pain–and Come Out Strong by Judith Simon Prager and Judith Acosta.

Many children don’t like surprises. Tell your children about upcoming procedures and appointments. Prepare them by using social stories (simple and accurate descriptions of what to expect, presented with drawings if needed) and providing gentle, honest descriptions of what to expect.

Preparing for Injections, Blood Draws, and Potentially Painful Procedures

If your child asks if a procedure will hurt, answer truthfully. Remember that pain is perception and a bad old experience will not necessarily be repeated. Consider saying something like this, “I’m guessing you will feel something curious or different.  It may feel like a pinch. It may feel hot. It may feel funny or weird. What would that feel like?”

These kinds of statements and questions leave space for the child to have his or her own experience.

During the Procedure

  • z_18Take a few breaths to calm and center yourself. If you child is able and interested, invite him or her to join you in breathing. Children might enjoy breathing in a favorite color or fragrance (use imagination) to feel better.
  • Build rapport with the caregiver so that your child can see that you are a team.
  • Ask your child to look into your eyes, out the window, or at a picture or toy.
  • Tell positive stories about other or your child in similar situations:  “Remember when . . .”
  • Guide your child in picturing a happy time and place.  Engage her in reminiscing or telling stories. “Let’s go for a walk in our imaginations. Is there a place you’d like to go?” Let the child answer. If he doesn’t have any ideas, you may help him. “I think I see a rainbow over that way.  Let’s walk over and see if we can touch it.” You may want to have fun sliding down the rainbow, flying on unicorns, or getting caught in a sparkle or candy shower.
  • Use imagery to ease sensations and anxiety. Ask your child what would help and then imagine that unfolding. For example, before a blood draw: “The nurse is going to use a needle to draw some blood. Your body is constantly making blood and can easily let her have what she needs. Then, she will let scientists look at your blood under a microscope and that will give us important information that will help you to feel better. Can you think of something that would make it better?” Allow child to make a suggestion. “Okay. So let’s imagine that there is a marshmallow right there.” Press the spot where the nurse will poke. “It is really tall and squishy. That was a really good idea!”

Homeopathic Remedies for Children Who Are Afraid of Doctors

Observing a child’s unique fears and responses to various situations helps point the way to a good constitutional remedy.  The descriptions below describe only a tiny portion of the remedy picture. They are provided so that you may gain insight into comprehensive nature of homeopathic prescribing.

Consider the remedies below. If one of them seems to be a very good match for your child, give your child a dose of the 30c potency at bedtime for up to a week before the doctor visit or procedure. Don’t be afraid of homeopathic remedies.

Many other remedies may be indicated for your child. If your child is very afraid of doctors or needles, a consultation with a homeopath may be helpful.

Aconite (Aconitum Napellus)

A great remedy for children who have been stricken with great and sudden fear and do not want to be touched. They might feel like death is pursuing them, even when the ailment is minor.

Gelsemium

Children who need gelsemium prefer to be left alone in a quiet place. They are apathetic about their illness and seem frozen both mentally and physically before dreaded events.

Nux Vomica

Irritable children who are hypersensitive to noise and light. These children do not like music, are very fussy and want every detail in place. They don’t want to be touched. Even minor ailments affect them strongly.

Phosphorus

Children who blaze brightly, then burn out. They are also sensitive to light, sound, odors, touch, electrical charges and thunderstorms. They crave salt and are very thirsty. Phosphorus individuals are subject to nosebleeds and other excess bleeding.

Homoepathic Remedies for Children Who Are Afraid of Needles

Alumina

This is a remedy for delicate children who are intensely affected by modern living conditions and over-processed foods. They are afraid of sharp objects such as knives, needles and pins and the sight of bloodThey tend to be constipated and may appear unhappy, like the light has gone out of them.

Apis

Apis children are jealous, rigid, hard to please, and unable to concentrate enough to read or study. They may have many allergies. They are individualists who find it difficult to integrate into community life. During procedures, they may produce sudden shrill and piercing screams.

Silica

These children lack grit and self-confidence. They are sensitive and serious. They will usually give way if pushed, but will quietly do what they wanted to do anyway. Silica children are terrified of pins and needles.
