The Secret Language of Spirit is the culmination of award-winning author and psychic medium William Stillman’s wisdom and insights in a fascinating exploration of the sometimes blatant, sometimes hidden spiritual symbolism in our everyday lives. With accessible language, easy-to-understand explanations, and fascinating anecdotes, Stillman introduces to the open-minded layperson an alternate lens through which to view daily interactions with Spirit. Topics unique to this compelling new work include: A thorough explanation of Heaven’s inner workings. Recognizing Spirit-speak—the silent but ever-present signs and signals that surround us. Decoding symbolic patterns found in nature, dreams, our names, and the manifestation of “threes.” Associative links in memory that correlate spiritually to music and scents. Stillman’s most powerful observations may be found in the chapter that correlates spiritual sensitivity with persons with autism, mental illness, and dementia—individuals whose “gibberish” is often dismissed as pathology but may actually provide glimpses into another realm. The Secret Language of Spirit concludes with an empowering chapter that addresses the concepts of abundance and achieving authenticity with Love’s Foot Rule—12 fundamental tenets. Stillman also introduces the principles of passion, pursuit, and prosperity, and how to manifest them in concert with Spirit.

This beautifully illustrated, moving and revelatory book will inspire readers to see that it is often that which gives us the deepest sorrow in life that can bring us the greatest joy.'Welcome to my world. I have autism. 'But A Painful Gift is not about my autism. It is about the struggle to be truly ourselves in the world. To be fully human, to touch people and to be touched by people in return. 'Autism is a blessing, a gifted way of seeing the world. It is also deeply misunderstood. There is much talk of finding a cure for autism, but it is only our inability to accept difference that cries out to be remedied. 'Although autism is a gift, it can be a painful gift. I have shared my woundedness in full so that you might be given the strength to bring to light your woundedness. Great love and great suffering are part of the spiritual journey. Suffering can not only break us down, it can also break us open. This book is a pilgrimage of the mind to the heart and is a testimony to the fact that it is not the absence of affliction that makes us who we are, but our faithfulness in adversity that is the deeper measure. 'My deepest prayer is that all who read this book will be inspired to see that it is often that which gives us the deepest sorrow in life that can bring us the greatest joy.' Christopher Goodchild

A touching glimpse into the world of autism, with supplementary articles by the author and Georg Kuhlewind. Juliana thought often about the child with the sun's rays playing in her blonde hair and whose eyes told stories of heaven. She thought about her delicate frame and inexhaustible energy. The young woman was grateful to have met this little girl. . . . Melanie B�s introduces us to the world of autism and the struggle of one child to break out of it. This is a story of being-rather than not awake enough in the world-of being too awake.

Yet it is also a story of two souls (the child and the student teacher), of recognition, of unconditional love, of miraculous discoveries.

In Like Colour to the Blind, Donna Williams enters the most exposing and fragile realm of human interaction: her relationship and eventual marriage with someone with whom she can 'simply be', a relationship she terms a 'specialship'. But loving involves exposure, and to love she must expose the very things which protected her all her life - the masks she has hidden behind, the patchwork creations which stood in place of self. In Donna's relationship with Ian, a man with difficulties related to her own, we watch the two of them break through their rock-solid emotional barriers and dare to defy all the rules imposed by the autistic condition of 'exposure anxiety'. Their struggle is told with Donna's characteristic humour, insight and sense of fragility. Like Colour to the Blind is also the story of Alex, who was misdiagnosed as 'retarded' as well as autistic, and so gripped by 'exposure anxiety' that he has been virtually non-communicative all his life. Alex's fear of being left behind by Donna and Ian inspires him to push fiercely beyond the boundaries of his limitations and, in his own words, `to fly'.

From the New York Times bestselling co-author of Plague of Corruption comes an explosive exposé of the CDC cover-up of the dangerous consequences of the MMR vaccine. In November of 2013, Simpson University biology professor Dr. Brian Hooker got a call from Dr. William Thompson, a senior scientist at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) working in vaccine safety. Their conversations would lead to explosive revelations that top officials at the CDC engaged in a systematic cover-up of data showing that earlier administration of the MMR vaccine caused increased rates of autism in children, particularly African American males. Many have claimed this is the greatest medical crime against African Americans since the infamous Tuskegee syphilis experiments. Thompson would eventually turn over thousands of the documents to US Congressman William Poesy. Science teacher and New York Times bestselling co-author of Plague of Corruption, Kent Heckenlively, was granted access to this unprecedented trove of documents and uses them, as well as ground-breaking interviews with many of the key players in this debate, to tell the story of how vaccines have become a three-decades long disaster since passage of the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act which gave pharmaceutical companies complete immunity for damages caused by their products. This updated version contains startling revelations from Dr. Andrew Zimmerman, the government's main medical witness, that as early as 2007 government attorneys were aware that at least one third of autism cases were connected to vaccinations.

This project is committed to portraying autism and, more profoundly, individuals with autism, from the inside out. Through the media of photography and writing, this book hopes to educate and inspire by breaking apart stereotypes associated with autism while showing vividly that love is omnipotent in our trials and triumphs. It is the ultimate lesson, weapon and savior as we struggle to understand and overcome life’s challenges each day.The writing describes a journey, taking readers through hope, despair, pain and resurrection. It touches on the collective human experience of suffering and redemption while showing a pathway to a profoundly higher ground of understanding and acceptance. The story is written from a collective heart, formed by countless intimate exchanges with families struggling and triumphing, again and again as they live and love in the autistic world. The greater purpose, beyond the story of autism, is the universal message that from the depths of darkness, often we find the greatest enlightenment. The autistic individual is a beautiful metaphor for this belief. In a culture that bombards with messages that perfection is the key to happiness, the autistic individuals and their families dare to challenge this notion while drawing others to look beneath and beyond the superficial. With startling beauty, the images prove what in words alone might be denied: that beneath and beyond autism there is a reality often missed: a will, a soul, an identity that achieves the full measure of its creation; to connect with others in ways not seen or appreciated by surface observation. This combination of narrative and image becomes a powerful parable that reaches and teaches far beyond autism itself, touching on spiritual truths often lost in the cultural mainstream.

It s been called an epidemic. 1 of 150 children is diagnosed with some form of autism in the U.S. alone, and there seem to be more diagnoses all the time. As the phenomenon grows, parents and specialists are baffled by the staggering range of the autism spectrum and frustrated by the absence of a cure. While theories abound and various therapies and diets help, experts have yet to find the cause of autism. But what if autism can be viewed not only from a scientific standpoint, but also from a narrative standpoint? "The Myth of Autism" explores this mysterious disorder through the lens of metabletics, a little- known school of psychology that focuses on understanding various conditions in light of their wider social, cultural, and historical contexts. Interpreting autism as an expression of the condition of modern Western culture as a whole, the author traces its roots to the 15th-century advent of linear perspective vision. Using important narrative works--from "Hamlet" to "Fight Club"--to explore the psychological effects of l.p.v. on the soul of modern man, he helps readers to see autism not as an epidemic, but as part of a story.
