Law of Attraction And Autism

I have just recently subscribed to your website and system. I have just finished reading the first day's "lesson". I have had a bit of exposure to this doctrine previously - but there are a few questions I have that I have just never been able to figure out. I was wondering if you would be able to help shed some light on them:

1. Does the Law of Attraction work on other people? For example - I have two children with special needs. My son has autism and I have been working for many years in attempting to help him heal and recover. We have seen some progress - but it is slow going. If I have positive thoughts and intentions about him recovering - will that work? (I very much have had the expectation that my son would recover for approx 3 years - lately I have started to become discouraged). Didn't know if he needs to have the thoughts- which would be extremely difficult for someone with autism obviously. Most specifically - I really want him to be able to speak. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

2. How does a belief in God play into the Law of Attraction - I have read exercises such as the "golden key" - that says if you have a worry - give it to God. Consistent with law of attraction?

3. Do all negative things come to your from negative thoughts? I did not think about my children having disabilities - and they did. I'm sure many people that have illness/disease do not think about it.... I guess also again makes me wonder God's role in this?

I know these are simplified questions of things that are 'heavy' thoughts- and perhaps there is no answer. But - I continue to seek. I would be interested in hearing your thoughts.

Thank you for your question, you bring up some interesting points.

As a rule of thumb you cannot manifest in another’s reality, as their reality depends of their focused thoughts and feelings, and your reality depends on your thoughts and feelings. However, you can influence others by thinking of them in a certain way, and as long as the reality you are focusing on does not conflict with the reality that they are aligned to, you could influence their experience.

Simply put, thought can heal others, but only for as long as the healed reality does not conflict with their thought, in other words, they would need to want to be healed.

So how can you focus your thought to match the vibration of your Autistic child needing healing?

To begin with I would have to ask this question about Autism, is it a condition that needs healing, or does it just need understanding?

To explain what I mean you would have to appreciate that we have a physical and spiritual side.

The physical side of you, being the part of you that is experiencing the physical dimension through limited perception and time.

The spiritual side, being the part of you that is ‘being’ through all time and all dimension, and that through intention and focus, is able to manifest itself through the physical dimension.

In other words, by intention and focus the spiritual side of us is able to manifest certain conditions for it to experience, rather like the physical side of us would use our thought and feeling to manifest certain conditions for each of us to experience.

That is that your child manifest this experience with Autism, by using intention and focus from his spiritual vantage point, this experience must have been an intentional experience that was focused towards before his physical birth.

So what could be the purpose of experiencing the physical dimension through the apparent condition of having a disability?

Have a look at these videos to understand this a little more.

Abraham Hicks - We Choose Our Physical Bodies, Autism And Autistic Children

Watch this video about being born with autism, (after about 6 minutes).

Abraham-Hicks - Autism and Alignment

Can you feel the joy of your son’s being? Can you tell him that he need not change a thing in order for you to love him?

And if you can accept that your child is a teacher, what is it that you can learn from him?

What is it that he can teach you from his perception of being in total alignment with his spiritual side?

Your child is a gift, as is his Autism, and as soon as you can rejoice in his happiness of being, you can begin to allow your own freedom and rejoice in your own happiness too.

I am what I am.

Abraham Hicks What Can We Learn from Autism?

I hope that these videos can help you a little, and allow you to think a little differently about you child, particularly, that he is not a child with special needs, rather he is a special child who can help you to align and fulfill your needs.

I can fully understand the you want him to be able to speak, but truly speaking this is your desire, not his, and just maybe he truly wants you to communicate with him through his language, which is far more expansive than our language of words.

It’s interesting that in the closing statements in the previous video Abraham spoke through Esther the words, I am what I am, as it leads nicely to the next part of your question about God.

“I Am that I Am,” was the response God used in the Hebrew Bible when Moses asked for his name, and perhaps this gives us an ideal of what or who God is.

“I am that, I am,” is a statement of Gods omnipresent nature and shows us that we manifest through God as God manifests through us.

If it is the case that experiences manifest in our reality as a match to our thoughts and feelings, then to consciously choose an experience, it follows that we must consciously choose our thought.

This is the reason you are told to practice visualizations and affirmations, and the purpose of using these techniques is to match our thoughts to the existence of our desires, not to the absence of them, and in doing so, our desires shall manifest.

Put simply I would say that whatever you wish to experience, focus your thoughts and feelings to the existence of

This short explanation on how to apply the Law of Attraction is a lesson we find quite often in the Bible….

“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.” Mark 11:24

“And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” Matthew 21:22

In reading these Bible extracts it is quite clear that when you pray for an outcome, belief and faith play an important role of your prayer.

The same could be said in the application of the Law of Attraction, and is demonstrated in a very familiar process for using these Laws, i.e. Ask, Believe, and Receive.

Asking could be likened to prayer, as you would choose what you desired and try to match the thought vibration of having these things now.

Belief would be the second step, and as a process you would let go of the How, When and Where questions, and simply trust that what you desire shall become part of your experience.

“Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.” Mark 9:23

But how to believe?

It is fear and worry that we tend to feel will always keep our desires away, as to think in fear and feel in worry, can only bring a reality that is most unwanted,

But this difficulty that people tend to have in controlling their fears and worries is well recognized, and techniques have been developed to help us to let go of these thoughts and feelings.

It is through gratitude that we remove fear and worry, and as we focus our attention to the best of the things that we have today, we become aligned to more of these good experiences in our future.

“I think and speak positive. I focus on what is good. I refuse to fear or dwell on the negative.” Phil. 4:8; Eph. 3:20,21

“I am thankful and content today.” Psalm 136:1; Philippians 4:6,7,11

It is fear and worry that blocks the Law of Attraction to make it impossible for us to experience the things we would most like to have.

I would also suggest that you read Neale Donald Walsh’s book, Conversations with God, it gave me a deeper understanding of God and our purpose, it’s a wonderful book.

The book The Shack is another good read, although not strictly speaking a Law of Attraction book, it does explore some new ideas and thoughts about God.

Autistic Parent
by: Anonymous

Hi! I thought your response to this person's question was very insightful. For me, I am the parent of two autistic young men, and I don't want to change them per se, but behaviors my older son displays make it very difficult to take him out in public at all. So for me it is not about changing him, but allowing us to do things we need to do for him without the huge draining level of difficulty that his disability sometimes presents.

There is little to no help with this issue so right now I am working on manifesting better behaviour for him, which is not a wish but an absolute necessity. I don't wish for a fancy huge house or expensive car, all I wish for is a way to manage my son so we can take him places he needs to go without behaviour outbursts.

It didn't used to be this way so it is very distressing. He has shown a bit of improvement so maybe it is working but I don't think his impulse to grab and throw things will ever be gone. Right now I think what I would like to manifest is an understanding doctor who will work with us from waiting room to checkout (most doctors don't accommodate their offices for autistic patients). That is the closest thing I can think of to a realistic manifestation-and even that is a huge stretch.

Getting my son out of the car is also very difficult as he is stubborn. Anyway I appreciate your response to this person, every little bit helps.

My own view -from the inside- is probably much different from the typical one here ...but I think it's worth considering.

Aspergers/Autism seems to start as a relatively small physical brain abnormality. But then its effects keep causing the _next_ round of brain development to go awry, so that in the end it effectively has "snowballed" until most of the brain is physically abnormal.

So effective training/remediation should have one or the other (or hopefully both) of these two possible goals:

1. By helping to minimize the effects at any particular stage of development, break the snowballing, so at least other parts of the brain that haven't developed yet are not also ruined.

2. Learn to "cope" in society even though that particular brain is quite different from the typical one. Just because somebody is "weird" doesn't necessarily mean they can't have "a good life" ...IF they're shown how. (And by shown how, I do _not_ mean shown how to be "normal" ... I mean being shown how to "make it work" even though the equipment is quite different. For example, if a kid memorizes a huge number of train schedule times, DON'T teach him that "most people don't do that", instead DO help him get a job with the railroad.)
