Breathe. Pause. Close your eyes. Slow down – moving, speaking, thinking. Forget time – Don’t look at the clock. Choose freedom. Say yes – to yourself. Suspend all judgments.

Our Journey (part 2) »

Continuing the story we shared last year, this video documents the last 12 months in Joaquin’s Son-Rise Program. Although Joaquin’s growth has been (and continues to be) amazing, this is mostly a tribute to the beauty of the process and the extraordinary people that have joined hands with us building and providing an optimal growing [...]

Choosing and Allowing »

I used to read “happiness is a choice” as “happiness is a choice, and you’re always supposed to choose it; if you can’t it’s okay for now, but do seek happiness when you’re ready”. And so I’ve done a lot of choosing, allowing, and then attempting to choose not sure if I’m ready… just perhaps [...]

A testimonial from a Son-Rise Volunteer »

I have now been on a six month journey with this Son-Rise family. I have learned more about myself over the course of this volunteer time than any sage could ever teach me. This little boy’s energy has mirrored mine at times and I have mirrored his. He has revealed to me times when my energy or attitude was different than what my conscious mind was willing to admit. He has shown me through autistic isms the things my mind ruminates about. He has taught me how silly the things are that we worry and ruminate about as we turn them into games in his world.

Love vs. Fear »

I used to think that if you do Son-Rise perfectly, your child will have no option but to recover (as in, be fully “cured” of autism). I did this in order to motivate me to play perfect Son-Rise and put all of me behind the goal of Joaquin’s recovery. I took this belief in an [...]

On / Off »

While appreciating the fact that I currently find myself inspired, peaceful, loving, free, and flowing… I just noticed how my “newspaper” (the collection of things that reach me every day) is bringing me messages of inspiration, love, freedom, ease, and fluidity. I’m noticing the obvious: It’s not a coincidence and special gift from the angels [...]

Finding at the bottom of my subconscious »

While Joaquin takes a nap in our living room, I decide to take my Frequency book and read by him. As I go through chapter 3, an incredible revelation comes over me. I start seeing it so clearly. It makes so much sense, and my heart agrees by beating rapidly, and my eyes, ears and [...]

Healing: Energy and Information »

Wow. I’m putting together what I’m learning about living cells from Bruce Lipton, with what I learned and keep experiencing after attending a Reconnective Healing seminar last weekend, with what I’m experiencing reading Penney Peirce’s “Frequency”… It’s all making so much sense, and just keeps validating my gut wisdom to keep discarding much of what [...]

Stepping Out of Yourself »

There is this big fat fear I’ve had for a long time, that as I get older evolves in relationship to the people in my life, but the core of it is still there. And now that I find myself every day telling the Universe that I want to advance spiritually, that I’m trusting, listening, [...]

9. I can’t be around Joaquin when I’m unhappy »

At the core of this belief there is the very big and fat red itchy theory that I may have planted in Joaquin the subconscious idea that the world is not safe; that he is not welcome in my life. Sometimes I’ve thought that Joaquin may have experienced the conflict I had as a stay-at-home [...]

Loving Joaquin. Loving Ourselves. Loving All »

Excited and inspired as I see how the intention to live love, choice, trust, self-awareness, and happiness in our personal life, is taking over Joaquin's Son-Rise program and infecting my life and that of my team members.

Happy Lenses »

Today… Just as an experiment… Decide that you ‘re going to have an awesome day. There will be a lot of stuff out of your control, and no matter what happens, just today, as an experiment, you will choose to be happy and at peace with whatever situation is thrown at you; with whatever thing [...]

In case of unhappiness, read this… »

.post h3 {text-transform: none;} .blanco {font-size: .9em; font-style: italic;} Having embraced my unhappiness for the last three days, I emerge today peaceful, happy and loving, and ready to go on with my present life. And because I can see clearly now without the clouds of resistance and self-judgement, I also have a few words of [...]

Baking Puzzle »

Calling for the help of more experienced bakers to improve my experimental recipe of SCD veggie-rich muffins.

Awetism — no typo here »

I’m the mother of an autistic child, and because of that I’ve become a much better parent than I thought I needed to be. I’ve become a more creative person than I thought I was. I’ve learned to love somebody like I never thought I could. I’ve found every piece of myself that I believed I had lost. And as I’ve discovered and acted on all of these lessons, Joaquin has developed in such an amazing and beautiful way, today I see him already “whole”, and I have no fear for his future or my own happiness. I’ve gotten it all.

Blessed Food and Water »

For anyone open to believe, and who may benefit from considering these thoughts… For the last months I’ve heard so much about the wonder of fermented foods in the treatment of autism. The information makes a lot of sense to me, and I have started as much as I can to add fermented foods to [...]

Slowly Awakening »

Success, performance, achievement. The stuff for which I’ve worked most in the first 38 years of my life… Last year’s existing project to create a new passionate career… To become a successful artisan, a brand name, a recognized designer able to make a living out of my craft and joy, all surrounded by stress and [...]
