For years I lived unknowing I had autism. A reality hard to find words for in the reality life has actually been and why, and not relating to life as was expected of me. Today I still deal with much consequence that happened along my journey and through that time of confusion in not knowing as common do and the things that could have been very different.. I know the difficulties and challenges that we all are faced with, living with autism. The recovery it takes to clean up what autistics do not understand and the impacting toll our nervous systems endure when we are not protected. I strive to heal and through that evolving journey I also know how I and others like me impact the world and just how important staying courageous is for all people.
Sit in a comfortable position. Try to sit in the same place each day. Avoid positions that you might fall asleep in.
a. The back is long and supports itself.
b. Shoulders are relaxed downward, the neck is long, and the chin is pointing neither up nor down.
c. The face is relaxed.
Begin to breathe (preferably through the nostrils). Feel the belly rise, the ribs expand, and the slight movement in the collarbones and shoulders as the breath moves upward. Feel the exhalation.
Focus on one aspect of the breath.
a. The movement of air in and out of the nostrils.
b. Or the lifting and falling of the belly.
Watch that one aspect of the breath.
a. When the mind wanders, gently bring it back to the breath and the aspect you have chosen to watch.
b. Do this as many times as you need to.
c. There is no such thing as a good or bad meditation. (Good and bad are judgments, events in the mind – just note them and go back to the breathing.)
Start with 5–10 minutes and then increase the time until you can sit for 30 minutes.
Beauty is a way of being. Strength is showing up. Fierce self-love is the only option to choose . Living brings in flow for healthy follows.
We burn the old stories and replace them with heart-light phases, drenched in commitment, filled with intense gratitude.
We are blessed with an incredible day today for many reasons. It’s a powerful day. The day of new awakenings and powerful new beginnings!
Where We live intentiously allowing love to lead the experience . I strive with the notion that “success begins innately, out”
Stay with those who supoort your reality in a positive way and uplift you. No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.
net worth of autism is not measured by what’s spoken in words. The net worth is within the language of the inventory of words in autism hearts.
BE GRACIOUS, NOT GREEDY!!!
IT GOES A LONG WAY 💫
Be the person that makes someone else smile. It might seem small to you, but could be momentous to the receiver of your gift.

deep faith that pushes me through and grabbed on years ago; and has been my driving force ever since. One day I’ll tell you about my journey of surrender and how it found me, yet for now- I’ll leave it at my deepest appreciation , and the wisdom and discernment I’ve gleaned from it. For those filled with a lot of faith, a little faith, or none at all- Your journey is yours and yours alone. I’m here for you regardless of where you are in your walk, and to share my testimony of hope, patience, and perseverance to encourage you to keep going. Collectively we are in this together, and I’m appreciative for the foundation of faith I stand on with and for you. Come rain or shine, highs or lows, we’ll conquer this upcoming week just like the rest, each day stronger, better, and closer than before.
