“I’ll believe it when I see it”. You’ve heard that one before havn’t you? Is it always true? Is it to be taken literally? I don’t think so. How could it be? There are many things in our world that we can’t see but are very real. Love, hatred, kindness, joy, jealousy…
And things that we use on a daily basis. Things that are scientifically proven (that takes a lot!) like, sound waves and electricity. But there are still people in present times that don’t believe something is real unless they can actually see it, with their own two eyes. How is this possible? They do listen to the radio don’t they? And use energy to get thru their busy days? Hmmmm…seems pretty selective to me.
How can you deny that our world is made up of energy. So, why wouldn’t it effect us both positively and negatively. And why can’t it cause a variety of reactions in our bodies as well? I have to be honest with you. This was a tough one for me to swallow. I was a pretty “black and white” thinker before Liam got sick. I was an atheist and someone who conveniently did not believe in “energy”. So when we brought Liam to his Nutritionist for the very first time I was literally blown away by what we witnessed.
As I’ve told you before she does “muscle testing” which essentially is using energy to get answers for what is good and bad for his body. Garry and I both thought it was joke. “Let’s just get his diet straightened out, grab some vitamins and get the “F” out of there”. Then she did the muscle testing on us. That’s when we “saw” it. We felt it, and couldn’t deny that it was real. She used us as a surrogate to test Liam for everything including food, vitamins and supplements, yeast overgrowth, parasites, and even what brands of vitamins to use. It was incredible and sincerely life-changing for all of us.
But, even after we “saw” this we were still skeptical. She muscle tested Liam for toxins as well. Insisting that he has an overload of toxins from his vaccinations. And that it triggered many of the symptoms we are now seeing in Liam. How could this be, we thought. It took me a while before I believed this to be true as well. In fact with every step, every new therapy, every new finding and discovery I had a hard time “believing what I didn’t see”.
I think that most of it comes from living in this “modern” world. We have come so far in many ways. But, it amayzes me how we really need to just get back to the basics and redo things we have completely messed up. We shouldn’t have to “see” something to believe it’s true. More than half of the worlds population (59% according to the latest statistics) believes that their is a god. Do we see this god? (well, I suppose some can say yes…but, .that’s another story) Some people believe that god and all living beings are made up of energy. So, why would these same people question that energy can effect our every day lives?
We take Liam to see his Nutritionist and to do “muscle testing” about once per month. Why? we know what his diet is, and he’s on the best vitamins and supplements for his body. So why do we have to go so often? Because his body changes every day. Lets look at it like this. Every day your body gets dirty, or stressed, or cleansed, or it catches a virus, or parasite or maybe you drank one too many or ate impeccably well, or went to McDonald’s (yuck), or went on a 50 mile bike ride, or saw someone you love, or saw someone you don’t love. Whatever happened in your day it is different than what happened yesterday. So, because we are human and not robots our body changes with it all. For good or for bad our bodies respond. Not only do we see the physical effects that happen to our bodies but, we also collect toxins and bad energy. Some people can detoxify and some people keep these things forever. So everyday your body is different. Good and bad. The good news is that you have the opportunity to change that. The bad news is that you also have the opportunity to make it worse! But, this change that our bodies go through is constant and very very real.
Historically I am not a girl who likes change. Well, who is really? I mean seriously, does anyone really like change? unless its a good change, like: you got a raise. I’d take that change anyday! So wrapping my brain around this concept took some time. But when I did, the “energy” piece really made sense to me. And for Autistic kids in general this is a big one!
Thanks to my big sister Sherri (love you) I am reading my new favorite book called “The Fabric of Autism” by, Judith Bluestone. She is a “Recovering Autistic” (as I like to call it). Much like Temple Grandin (another brilliant recovering autistic), she has figured out how to get to the root causes of many Autistic behaviors and to work with them not against them. It is fascinating to me, of course but, truly speaks about all of humanity in that every body is ever-changing and made up of energies that are effected by other energies.
Judith explains that the reason why Autistic children (and adults) have so many sensory problems are yes from toxins, poor diet, immune systems (well many reasons really) but the sensory overload has much to do with the way their bodies respond to energies like:
Electricity, sound, light, natural fibers (like cotton) vs. synthetic fibers (like plastic), certain metals (good= copper, bad= mercury), and most of all the energy that other living things give off.
I am learning on this long but incredible journey that there are many ways of realigning these energies in ones body. I think some people are more open to this than others. I also believe that being “open” is essential to healing. Thankfully my beautiful little boy is very open to anything we try. He will do anything, eat anything, take any vitamin, go in a hyperbaric chamber, see the Nutritionist, go to any doctor, wear his copper anklet, and go to any therapy with a smile on his face and an open mind. We are incredibly grateful and lucky that Liam was chosen to be in our family.
My next blog will explain any and all energy healing therapies we do.
