Autistic People Are Different From Everyone Else

Is This True?
What Is Autism
          Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restricted and repetitive behavior. Parents usually notice signs in the first two years of their child's life. These signs often develop gradually, though some children with autism reach their developmental milestones at a normal pace and then regress. The diagnostic criteria require that symptoms become apparent in early childhood, typically before age three.
          Autistic individuals display many forms of repetitive or restricted behavior, which the Repetitive Behavior Scale-Revised (RBS-R) categorizes as follows. For example, a young boy with autism who has arranged his toys in a row this stereotype is repetitive movement, such as hand flapping, head rolling, or body rocking. Compulsive behavior is intended and appears to follow rules, such as arranging objects in stacks or lines. Sameness is resistance to change; for example, insisting that the furniture not be moved or refusing to be interrupted. Ritualistic behavior involves an unvarying pattern of daily activities, such as an unchanging menu or a dressing ritual. This is closely associated with sameness and an independent validation has suggested combining the two factors.
Restricted behavior is limited in focus, interest, or activity, such as preoccupation with a single television program, toy or game. Self-injury includes movements that injure or can injure the person, such as eye-poking, skin-picking, hand-biting and head-banging. No single repetitive or self-injurious behavior seems to be specific to autism, but only autism appears to have an elevated pattern of occurrence and severity of these behaviors.

Autistic People Are Different
        I had recently been inspired to write about this topic due to a question which was asked by a client. I am not going to go over the details of the reading and what exactly was asked, but this was a topic I wanted to touch base on. This client had it set in their mind that their children was different and they wanted a way to make their children like everyone else. Right from the start I questioned whether or not to proceed, but I followed my heart. It took me an entire day to figure out the best possible answer for this question. Do I go over ways to make their kids normal? Should I list a variety of treatments she should try? Surely her doctor handles that... Then I realized the most obvious thing. This person's children was not the one with the problem, it was the parent for assuming that their children was different. 
           I have the pleasure of knowing a wonderful person who is Autistic and she lives a happy and full life. I have worked as a cashier in the past and have came across people with Autism. I tell you this, they are more "normal" than most "normal" people are. I went into the question explaining how this person's children were no different from any of the other children. I explained to her that she should release that thought, because having a parent who see's their kid as so different from the other's would ultimately not be what's best for the child. Now in no way am I bashing this person, and in no way am I telling this person how to raise a child. I am not a parent. But I do know one thing. If someone who was wheelchair bound for the rest of their life came into a store. Would you see that person as so different from anyone else? Sure they need accommodations for their handicap, but are they "different"? No, they are not different and neither are Autistic people. Sure they learn differently and may experience life differently in ways, but are the literally different? Should they be categorized as not like the rest? Hell No!! 
        I hope this message reaches people who really need this information, and I hope that you accept this view. People with Autism are just like you and me. They shouldn't be treated any differently. Thank you and have a blessed and beautiful night!!

Galactic Information Monthly
December 2015

Channeled Message:

           Many good things are occurring here on earth. We are prepared to give you this information, because we know that it will be beneficial to you. Healing energies will be released, and this will be in more than just the physical plane. Your Emotions and Spirits will also benefit from this. This is due to some of our ships being deployed out to send the healing energies around the earth. They will go wherever the energies are the lowest. On another note full global disclosure of information is soon going to be finalized. We are in the ending stages of some amazing things. We acknowledge that many things are happening on your planet, and war is in the minds of some. The governments of humanity believe they have the upper advantage, and we cannot reveal everything. But know that we are on the upswing, and we have plans coming forward. In the coming months many of you will notice events occurring, some of these will be bad, and some will be covered up. Some of these will have to do with “alien” and “ufo”, as you call them, sightings. There will be knowledge coming forward, and you will be safe to know that this is us. We are for the betterment of humanity; we are for global peace and cosmic love. We are here to connect all with the realms of light through way of ascension. Embrace and continue to learn love children!!

Today the moon is in its last quarter, the waning moon. This is when the moon is decreasing in size, moving from the Full Moon towards the New Moon. This is a time for spells that banish, release, and reverse. This is a time to break bad habits or bad addictions, to end bad relationships. This is a time of deep intuition and a time for divination. Be sure to review endeavors and correct mistakes, settle disputes and make amends.

12/5
There will be some light codes released today from the starship being close to earth. They will be releasing energy on this day to prepare us for the entire month ahead.

12/6
Crystal energy, coding uploads, and advancements will be boosted tonight due to 2012 WA13 which is an asteroid passing closely by the earth.

12/7
Today Comet C/2014 S2 (PANSTARRS) is forecast to reach its brightest in the sky. This will not be visible to all, but this comet will bring some much needed rejuvenation energy for us all. This day brings a coming time when energies will be moving higher.

12/8
Crystal energy, coding uploads, and advancements will be boosted tonight due to 2012 VZ145 which is an asteroid passing closely by the earth.

12/9
On this day Comet C/2015 S2 (PANSTARRS) will make its closest approach to the Sun. This will be like a boost for shooting the energy around our solar system. This day, and the coming days will be a perfect time for channeling sessions with the Galactics and higher beings. This will be a wonderful time for spiritual purposes. Also the Puppid-Velid meteor shower will reach its maximum rate of activity, about 15 per hour. This shower is known to increase the energies of earth by way of solar waves. Today will be a powerful day. Expect increased energies in the days to come.

12/10
Today Comet 204P/LINEAR-NEAT will make its closest approach to the Sun. The Galactics are saying that this Comet will help open a portal to prepare for the energetic uploads to go along with the energy of the New Moon. This will also be in effects tomorrow and the day after.

12/11
Today is the New Moon or Dark Moon which is when the Moon is directly between the Earth and the Sun and therefor hidden.  This is a time of new beginnings and new undertakings. A soothing time of rest and planning for new beginnings; new growth; love, the beginning of or renewing of; bringing things in; regeneration; give thanks. Put ideas in motion, become engaged, and make long term relationship plans. This is a time to set new goals and review old ones for both the long and short term, and relates to the planting of the seeds. Crystal energy, coding uploads, and advancements will be boosted tonight due to 1998 WT24 which is an asteroid passing closely by the earth.

12/12
Across much of the world the Milky Way’s dwarf companion, the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), in Dorado, will be well placed for communication and observation. It is expected to reach its highest point in the sky around midnight local time. It is expected that this portal of communication will remain open for the week after this day.

12/13
This day may pose as stressful for those attached to mundane things such as cellphones, computers, etc. There is no bad energy causing this, but there will be some increased solar energies on this day. This will be raising the vibrations of those awakened and lowering others. This shift should only last a day, but the effects may be felt days after. This is ultimately good.

12/14
The Germinid Meteor Shower will reach its maximum rate of activity today. Some of the stars are expected to be visible from Dec 7- Dec 16. In a dark location you can see about 100 per hour. This is a very big event. This shower comes from the constellation Gemini. So Gemini’s may feel this a bit stronger, but all should feel its effects very well. A portal of communication will be open and this shower is the key. Medium Channeling with higher entities will be open well and spiritual ascensions and uploads will too.

12/15
The open star cluster NGC 1981 in Orion's sword will be well placed for observation. It will reach its highest point in the sky at around midnight local time. This brings forth feelings of cosmic love to all. Also communication with the Orion high council and all other entities from this area will be strongly opened. This will be like a wormhole of connection. Astral Travelers can take advantage of this and go exploring. Have fun and see what comes up!

12/18
The Moon is at First Quarter; Waxing Moon which means the moon is getting larger in the sky, moving from the New Moon towards the Full Moon. This is a time for spells that attract, that bring positive change, spells for love, good luck, growth. This is a time for new beginnings, to conceptualize ideas, to invoke.

12/19
Prepare for the days ahead on this day by purging yourselves from mundane things such as technology, even if you can only do this for a few hours. Spending some time outside will also do many people well. If you feel rather clogged emotionally today, then go get some fresh air and meditate.

12/22
Today is the Winter Solstice, which is the shortest day of the year. This time is a Holiday to most, but the Solstice is a Wiccan and Pagan day of celebration. This day will have good energy. Also the Ursid meteor shower will reach its maximum rate of activity today. Some shooting stars associated with the shower are expected to be visible each night from 17 Dec to 25 Dec. But the full moon being close may decrease visibility. This shower comes from Ursa Minor, so keep this in mind for your spiritual needs and intergalactic channeling.

12/24
Crystal energy, coding uploads, and advancements will be boosted tonight due to 2011 YD19 and 2003 SD220 which are asteroids passing closely by the earth.

12/25
The Full Moon is tonight which is when the moon has reached its zenith, it forms a perfect silvery sphere in the sky. This is a time for spells that transform, increase psychic ability, for fertility spells and invocation to lunar goddesses. This is a time of strength, love and power. This is a very intuitive and productive time in Fertility; Magic; Dreams; Meditation; love; Matters of the home; Beauty; Money; Creativity; Psychic abilities, and is a time of heightened feelings. This is not a good time for major decisions. Major workings should occur now. This is the climax of the moon power. Also Asteroid 27 Euterpe will be well placed for observation, lying in the constellation Gemini. It will reach its highest point in the sky at around midnight local time. This is a good balance to go with the moon energy.

12/26
The Puppid–Velid meteor shower will reach its maximum rate of activity tonight. Some shooting stars associated with the shower are expected to be visible each night from 17 Nov to Jan. The maximum rate of meteors expected to be visible from a dark location is around 15 per hour. This will be good for boosting coding uploads and crystal energy.

12/27
For all those awakened spiritually, you can expect some good meditations to come through today. This is a gift from the Galactics and higher realms of light. Use this to your advantage and do some vision questing.

12/28

12/29

This is a good time for intergalactic channeling from this region of the sky.

12/30
