Raising a child with Autism

Raising a child with Autism

Hi there,

I would like to start by saying thank you to Teal. I discovered your videos 3 years ago and have made leaps and bound in my spiritual evolution since then. In addition to information, you have given me validation and the permission to be myself. I may be physically alone most of the time, but I now know that there are actual people out there just like me. I never would have know that without your work.

So, my question is about my daughter who has autism. I believe that she experiences some of the  things that Teal has said about the way she views the world (sensory over load, not being able to see negative space, synethesia, seeing non-physical entities, etc). For example, when walking on a new surface that she has never seen before, Phoenix will reach out a toe to test the ground and make sure its solid. She also see's things before they happen, like a night last week when there was a thunderstorm. Phoenix was content on the couch with her iPad and then, for no apparent reason, she ran over to me and clung tightly to my neck. I had no idea what she was afraid of until the lights went out, making it pitch black in our apartment. 

She has been diagnosed with Autism, but we haven't figured out where she is on the spectrum. 

She is a very sweet and social little girl, but she has trouble with communication (cannot speak yet) and gets frustrated easily as a result of this. I would love tips on how to raise her. Help her cope with stressful situations and the best way to teach her to function in society.  Help please!

Hi motherofthephoenix,

I was hesitant to respond as I’ll be the first to admit I know little about how to raise a child, having never done that myself. But some ideas came to me that might be helpful, and also your post still didn’t have any responses to it after 8 days. I don’t like to see people’s post go unanswered, especially for more than a week.

Hopefully, you are reaching out in many directions for the insights you are looking to gain. Doing a Google search as I just did for “autism support child cant speak” (without the quotes) and similar searches online may find the answers you need. A couple of the links I found, along with a link I found to a Teal Swan video is included below, though it sounds you have already found the Teal Swan content.

Generally speaking, I also like to encourage people to get professional help. When feasible, having a experienced specialist assistance can be helpful. My own intuitive hit, for what it may be worth, is try to engage your daughter in games geared towards communicating. I don’t know how feasible that is, but if the interaction about quality time and fun, with communication as only a byproduct, that might result in some positive progress too.

Lastly, I just want to mention that is sounds like your child has special abilities that I’m thinking may themselves hold part of the answer as to how to better communicate between the two of you. Perhaps in play or at other times, you may find it helpful to try develop your intuitive link together. Trying to let go of thoughts that you don’t know what she is trying to communicate or that you can’t communicate with her, to more of a belief that the two of you can sense or feel what is trying to be communicated, may open a more telepathic avenue.

I hope what I wrote helps. I wish you and your daughter the best. - Aaron

I'll just speak from my perspective. I didn't talk as a kid, I was pretty much a mute because I could feel emotions, that is how I communicate so the language is a step down in communicating with what is natural. people can lie behind words assuming people cant feel them, so when the energy doesn't match the words that gets confusing for them. you have these 2 languages going on, words and feeling, feeling are much more accurate because that's your heart, not your brain and intellect with all of its assumptions and limitations on what is true. I cant go to concerts, I get physically sick, its too much for me, you hear everything without even trying, feel people without even trying, you are them they are you, and most cant feel that, but I'm sure your daughter can, it becomes overwhelming, she is not working with the same sensitivity as you or other "normal" people, she's is hyper aware of everything and sensitive, so respect her boundaries. if you want to communicate with her more get in tune with your emotions and understand it is a language. the best you can do is love her for how she is they can feel that, they can even feel the disapproval and standard they can never reach from people, if you put that pressure there, they can pick up on all that without even the words being said, they can read you. nothing is wrong with her, love her. this current system does not really support people like your daughter because this standard exists, they're not dumb either, they are ridiculously intelligent more so than the doctor you go to see to get the help lol. they're whole system is sensitive, just know that, way more input than you are experiencing. my memories overlap and I still remember the people that loved me anyway and the ones that didn't accept me, the ones that loved me anyway make me cry, because love makes me cry.

Hi there,

I would like to start by saying thank you to Teal. I discovered your videos 3 years ago and have made leaps and bound in my spiritual evolution since then. In addition to information, you have given me validation and the permission to be myself. I may be physically alone most of the time, but I now know that there are actual people out there just like me. I never would have know that without your work.

So, my question is about my daughter who has autism. I believe that she experiences some of the  things that Teal has said about the way she views the world (sensory over load, not being able to see negative space, synethesia, seeing non-physical entities, etc). For example, when walking on a new surface that she has never seen before, Phoenix will reach out a toe to test the ground and make sure its solid.

She has been diagnosed with Autism, but we haven't figured out where she is on the spectrum.

From the spiritual perspective, your daughter is most likely what is called a "Crystal child", or something similar. This means that she has sensitivities like Teal but is also even more sensitive, has fewer natural personality defences, and is more prismatic (meaning she synchronizes with the energy around her very fast and deep). Because of her inherent prismatic nature her boundaries will be very weak and this is why she cannot distinguish things easily and she has communication issues and issues understanding people in general. She struggles to see the separation between her own self and what you would consider to be separate to her. She doesn't understand how or why other people can think different or be different, it is a strange concept. 

Her nervous system is more attuned than most people's and this is the cause of most/all of her issues. Her sensitive nervous system is being overtaxed and when combined with trauma it causes her to be overwhelmed more than the average person would be. Teal speaks about these children sometimes, most recently in this interview at mark 39 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKbpDydmgbg

Don't worry about her speech or societal development too much. It is common for autistic children to develop speech later than usual, depending on how they are raised. Deal with her overtaxed nervous system and she will develop "normally" in that sense and others, just maybe a bit later but she will be even more capable in that case. Unprecedented spurts of development are very common.

Most professionals still don't know much about autism, and there are MANY misconceptions even at the high academic levels in the field. You should be very cautious with who you listen to because the truth is that no one really has a firm grasp on the topic, especially when they lack the multi-dimensional perspective. One professional on autism who is very switched-on would be Tony Attwood, he has books and also many videos on YouTube. There is also a man named John Elder Robison who is a self-made successful adult autistic male who talks about his experiences.

You will need to take a very close look at her diet; even if she has no symptoms now, gastrointestinal issues are rampant in the autistic demographic. She will be sensitive to all kinds of foods that you might not expect. If there are behavioural and other health issues then some things should probably be cut out. Teal has a video about this but there is no shortage of information on the internet about what is and isn't healthy. Some of the most commonly addressed issues for ill, sensitive or autistic people are: sugar, processed foods, GMO's, cow dairy, and gluten.

Good nutrition is important but it depends what she likes. Maybe she'll like juicing. Magnesium is very good for autistic people as it helps their nervous system. I would also recommend other kinds of supplements but there are too many to go into. Just try to go for natural sources every time, as synthetic supplements are nowhere near as effictive as they are claimed to be, and that can also apply to "natural" products if you are not discerning. She will benefit the most from "new age" or spiritual things, but that can vary in depth. Things like nature, natural living, minerals, right-brain stuff, etc.

Any kind of treatment with pharmaceuticals or any other chemical coctail such as vaccines from the orthodox medical system should be avoided at all costs and you should safely ignore anyone who tries to push this option.

She will respond well to tight pressure, especially around the torso, Natural smells would benefit her so look into oils and also hypoallergenic cleaning products. Think about sensory input whenever she is expressing frustration, as it could be something so subtle that you might not have noticed it if you didn't try to.

Teal can help you understand a lot because she talks about what it's like to be sensitive in great detail, especially in her blogs and interviews. However I would highly recommend her videos on: Autism, How Babies See the World, How to See Auras, Boundaries, Disidentification, Parenting, Advice for Empaths, and probably others.
