Temple Grandin is an amazing lady. She is Autistic and has changed the world! What is autism? Is it a problem to be fixed or is it a different way of being?
I am autistic myself and on some days it can be incredibly frustrating to be surrounded by so much charge. Years ago I tried to suppress this level of awareness with drugs and alcohol, self stim, being very particular with positioning items. I would judge myself as wrong as I did not think or feel like other people.
Now I know I think differently and I don’t have the same feelings as others and that is this is not wrong. As temple says in the movie “different not wrong.”
For me, knowing that I am different has allowed me to create a very different reality for myself, knowing that I am very sensitive is now a talent that I can use and not something I have to suppress.
The movie Perfume is a classic movie about the sense of smell. Many years ago during a yoga class I picked up the information that the sense of smell in people was one of the least used senses. During this movie I received the awareness that perhaps it is easy to retrain your sense of smell and use it to have more fun, more sensuality. That evening a I smelt a person, just for fun and was blown away when I realized that we often do not allow ourselves to receive the smell of another with out judgement. Have you ever had anyone sniff you? To totally drink you in with their nasal capacities? How man of you have just gone yuck? What if the sense of smell when used with out judgement could add to the creation of your body?

Some times I get depressed or anxious for no reason. I’ll ask who it belongs to but sometimes it does not lighten up. So then I’ll ask is this an entity? If it is light I know it is true and I can employ tools to change things. What I love about this movie is that it depicts the relationship between the ghost of the daughter and her living father and how this relationship keeps them both stuck. For the father he is stuck in her death and that keeps his daughter stuck in a pattern in some sort of nether world. His daughter does not understand what is going on and that adds to her fathers depression beacuse he can still sense her but can not communicate with her. Just imagine how much easier life could be if we had some tools that could assist us to communicate with entity’s with ease.

Years ago when I watched this movie, the Matrix, I was all for take the red pill, take the red pill, go for the change! Today I look at this a little differently and see it as just a choice. Choice creates awareness. So you have a choice of red or blue pill, some people are going to choose the red pill and others are going to choose the blue pill. I guess the biggest issue is when we don’t choose for what we would really like to create. How many times have you chosen something thing because you wanted to fit, make a good impression or not rock the boat. Hell, I know I did, and sometimes still do. But now I know that a choice does not mean it is set in concrete, if you are choosing something and it is not working for you, you can always choose again, you don’t have to endure your choice any longer! And if you choose the blue pill sometimes it is not wrong. It is just a choice!

Your Secret Life
Recently I was at the movies watching Ben Stiller in the Secret Life of Walter Mitty. At the end of the movie the screen faded to white, and instead of the mass exodus there was total silence and not one person moved for almost a minute!
Why did this story affect so many people? Look at your own life and the answer is right there! All those daydreams you have, all those Mitty-ism moments you have, what if they are not a wrongness but your awareness of how your life can show up?
