Sensory Processing Disorders (SPD)

I am posting the following for a friend.
But, I wanted to share this openly for anyone who is just starting out on their journey with autism, communication skills, sensory processing disorders and so on….

The best thing you could do for more ideas on this is Google ‘sensory processing DIY’….

PECS – picture exchange communication system….

The good thing about PECS is that it can assist in teaching your child ALMOST anything via communication boards or otherwise.

The crap thing about PECS is that the licensing for it is (the last time I checked) over $500.

The best thing I just discovered is if you Google ‘PECS’ and click on images you will come up with a shit ton of PECS you can save to your tech device for your own use for later.

The other thing you can look into although I don’t remember a lot about it as it didn’t seem to help us much is the connection between gut health, food allergies and autism symptoms….

‘Criminals’ & ‘Returning to the Teachings’

When I was small, I never understood the vehemence that came into people’s voices when they spoke the syllables that made up the word ‘criminal’.

I didn’t really understand the word.

As I got a bit older I came to understand that people WANTED me to view those they had labelled with that word as ‘bad’ and/or ‘evil’; people I was to be afraid of.

Now, I have come to understand that the usage of the word ‘criminal’ is truly SUBJECTIVE.

What is good or bad?

Honestly. Ask yourself.

And as an example:

At one time I REVERED Barack Obama. I saw his win as a victory for black/African American/African (please insert the appropriately acceptable term for you here) citizens of the United States of America. For a better ‘country’.

Yes. Me.

I didn’t know.
But, I know now.

So at one time he and ‘government’ in my eyes were ‘good’.

My opinions and ideas have changed with new information.

Thank eff I learned.
So much of this is about perspective.

First Nations people?

They have a beautiful way of looking at their fellow humans. They look at the whole person. Their background, their family, their upbringing. They don’t even have a WORD that MEANS ‘criminal’ in their languages. For them what they use to express ‘criminal’ is like ‘the person/boy/girl/man/woman, who did that thing’. They don’t have such a demonizing word. They don’t associate the human being with their behaviour.

It is very similar to the opposite of Slavespeak.

I am trying to remember if I ever really walked this world feeling afraid of ‘criminals’. I never felt afraid of the ‘terrorists’.

I have felt afraid of our government and the cops more than anything. I have at one time or another been afraid late at night when I have been at home by myself.

But, the bulletins about ‘people being on the loose’ nope, I haven’t felt that fear.

And this book is why.

Why Do I March Against Monsanto?

Monsanto is the company that told us PCBs were safe, and took over production of this in 1929. They were convicted of poisoning people in the town next to the PCB factory and ordered to pay over $700 million to those townspeople. PCBs were then banned by Congress in 1979.

Monsanto is the company that told us that Agent Orange was safe. Starting in 1961, our military used it as a defoliant in Vietnam and we now all know the affects that this chemical had on not only our service members and their heirs, but long standing affects on the Vietnamese, and their environment. In 1984, veterans settled a class-action lawsuit with seven chemical companies and won over $180 million (40% paid by Monsanto).

Monsanto is the company that told us DDT was safe when they started manufacturing it in 1944. In 1948 the chemist responsible for it’s discovery won a Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. DDT was banned by our government in 1972 for it’s toxicity.

Monsanto is the company that tells us Aspartame is safe, and purchased the company that manufactured it in 1985. “During the clinical trials conducted on 7 infant monkeys as part of aspartame’s application for FDA approval, 1 monkey died and 5 other monkeys had grand mal seizures—yet somehow aspartame was still approved by the FDA.” In 2005 the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released a report listing 94 health issues caused by aspartame, yet it has not been banned.

Monsanto is the company that tells us that GMOs are safe. We’ve only had GMOs as part of our diets for 15 years, yet they have suddenly taken over almost our entire food supply. It has taken at least twenty years to address the health and environmental affects of everything else Monsanto has created to be realized, then banned. I don’t want to wait another 5-15 years for the government to get off their asses and discover these are hazardous… after we’ve essentially, potentially contaminated the entire population.

I’m not saying they are bad for us, I’m not saying I want them banned. I’m saying that I don’t trust them telling us they are good for us, and I think it’s interesting every other first world country in the world (besides Canada) has labeled or banned them due to testing or lack of testing… and their previously biggest accomplishments have all turned out to be their biggest failures, harming a lot of people in the process. I don’t want myself or your children to be their science experiment.

I want labeling, I want testing and I want it now. ‪#‎marchMay24‬

The Dangers of Climate Control

The following is a letter written by the Former Premier of British Columbia, Canada, Bill Vander Zalm, that he sent to municipalities across Canada:

We’re told that “Global Warming”, now conveniently called “Climate Change”, is a threat to Agriculture and therefore an issue of National Security. As a National Security issue, whatever they do to combat climate change, can be kept out of the public domain.

For years, many people have observed, what we were told to be, “Con-Trails” (Airplane engine condensation trails), but different from the contrails as we used to see them. Instead of dissipating quickly, they spread, stayed in the atmosphere for a pro-longed period, and if a lot of them, criss-crossing, caused a more cloudy sky. In the Pacific Northwest, we often suffer cloudy skies, the evidence was not always visible, but many people here, as elsewhere, referred to the cloud forming trails as “Chem-Trails”, trails not caused by water condensing but trails full of toxic substances to supposedly fight Global Warming.

In government circles it is referred to as “Geo-engineering”, it’s manipulating the earth weather system. Scary stuff, especially when we consider the enormous capabilities of the HAARP technology. For the purpose of our submission, to seek information, Geo-engineering and Chem-Trails are defined as a military-industrial complex program in partnership with private contractors and possibly major fuel suppliers and airline companies, whereby planes spray particulate matter into the atmosphere that would otherwise not be there.

It may seem ‘far-fetched’ to some, but it’s only recently that we found out a Drone can see a human face on the ground, from 10,000 ft. up, that the government can monitor every phone call we make and every email we send and a terrorist can detonate a bomb by using a cell-phone from miles away.

Chem-Trails are said to consist of tiny particles of the very harmful toxins, Aluminum and Barium. Toxins that we inhale, poison our water and kill the soil. We can avoid cancer causing second hand smoke but there’s no way to avoid, the far more toxic particles, that fall from the sky. Already diseases like Cancer, Alzheimer, Lou Gehrichs, Huntingtons, Parkinsons, Autism and Bone diseases are at a highest level ever, all of which could be directly linked to Aluminum.

Whenever man manipulates nature, be it for profit or politics, the cost and consequences are horrific. Events like the Hurricanes in the East, the Tornadoes in the Mid-West, the flooding in Toronto, the unprecedented flooding in Calgary, the loss of millions of trees in B.C. due to a pine beetle epidemic, will all be attributed to “Mother Nature” and Climate change and not a mention of Geoengineering.

I would highly recommend that anyone wanting further information, check the internet for well known Neuro Surgeon Dr. Russell L. Blaylock who tells us about Social Engineering by the Elitists, funded by such foundations as “Rockefellers”, Ford and Carnegie.

According to documents released by the National Academy of Sciences, the CIA is funding a scientific study to determine the feasibility of altering the planet’s climate, in order to stave off climate change. When a government agency does a study, it might well be to justify activities already in play.

No such activity, as spraying the atmosphere with toxic chemicals could ever take place without government consent, Federally, State or Provincially and without a detailed agreement governing times, places and materials used. The government of Maui, Hawaii is now considering an Ordinance (law) prohibiting the release of aerosols and other particulates into the atmosphere without informed consent from the people of Maui.

Neither Federal, State or Provincial government has ever announced such a “Climate Control Program” nor denied it existed.

I’m aware that any attempt at rationalizing complicated problems will be characterized, by the Elitists and those they control, as Conspiracy theories, and some will be, but this is then used to stop all attempts at creating a public awareness. Not too long ago, mention of governments telephone evesdropping or screening all our emails, would have been tagged as Conspiracy theory at its worst.

(1) I, Bill Vander Zalm, request through “Freedom of Information”, both Federal and Provincial, all information on file about “Climate Control Programs” with the government or anyone of its Ministries.

(2) I, Bill Vander Zalm, request that Municipal Councils, City Councils and Regional Boards pass a resolution to say that “no particulate matter for climate control be sprayed in the atmosphere above their jurisdiction, without informed consent” and that the issue be presented to the annual meeting of the Union of Municipalities for debate and consideration this September.

My Kids & Cancer

I told my kids about cannabis curing cancer yesterday. I also told them about how it is illegal.

I told them about when I was studying palliative care nursing, I read a case study on an 84 year old man who was slowly dying of cancer. He was given morphine for the pain. The morphine constipated him. He was given another medication for that which in turn resulted in another side effect. He was given another medication for that side effect which resulted of course, in an additional side effect and so on until he was on 8 different medications that stemmed from him needing pain relief. Alllll he had to do was smoke, eat or absorb cannabis, I told them and it would have helped him.

I reminded my oldest son of when I first hurt my back four years ago and he initially (for that first week or two) had to help me get out of bed in the morning when my ex was away in the bush working. My youngest also remembered it being really bad and it still gets bad sometimes. Nerve & bone pain is excruciating. Far worse than labour. Far worse than any pain I have ever experienced. It could make you start to black out or gag. Most of the time it was that burning, sharp on the spot pain that would just make me feel nauseous, weak and despondent. I told them that the pills my doctor gave me didn’t work for the pain. That I went to a friend and they gave me a Percocet pill. That never helped. Another friend gave me an OxyContin pill. STILL that never took the pain away. Strong medications that did nothing.

I told them that I inhaled twice off of a marijuana joint and I was pain free for almost 8 hours.

My youngest said I needed to ‘smoke that stuff all the time’!

I told them how badly I wanted to grow it for people and give it to them so they would feel better and not be sick anymore but if I did I would most likely be fined and/or go to jail and the government would probably take them away from me. I told them how the government, hospitals and drug companies that make all the chemical medicines make money off of us being sick but that cannabis can be grown by people relatively easily and cheaply and it would cure cancer and ease peoples pain.

Both of my sons were mindblown.

It just wouldn’t compute for them why this is being done to us.

Profit didn’t seem to be a justifiable reason.
