The Full Moon and Autism

Full Moon

With a Full Moon looming are you aware of how this impacts
children on the Autism Spectrum ?

Today I would love to share something that has been one of many catalysts in our journey and may have the same value for you and your family.  The moon cycle comes and goes and so does our children’s behavior. Sometimes we know what the trigger may be and other times we feel we have absolutely no idea. For me many years ago this was me…

For a long time we struggled with our sons behaviour.   We could not get rhythm before it would all turn to chaos again. Life was filled with stress with no direction or purpose until I began a diary.  Yes you read correctly, a diary. At the end of most days I would note how our son coped throughout the day leading to us revealing more than we could have imagined was possible…

Our son was impacted by the moon cycle in ways we had not realised. In actual fact, the extent of it was overwhelming as the outcome was we had one week in four that I could put all I could into him and then we had to ease of for him to self-regulate and cope with what was going on with the energy that surrounded him…

Discovery this was life changing for all of us…

It has been one of our greatest blessings on our journey to see the link between our sons coping and the moon cycle as it led to us finding solutions that made things easier. It allowed me to view our son in a way that I had not seen before. It meant that I became more in tune to the way he was coping and continued to look for ways to refine his schedule…

I started to look at ways I could make adjustments and prepare better when it came to planning and achieving success with our goals. I considered how I would implement the steps to take and when was a good time to introduce new things, so that we had greater chances of succeeding in achieving what I set out to do…

It has meant with the progress we have gained that the Full Moon is no longer something I dread. It is an opportunity to let go of what no longer serves so we can continue to keep moving forward. It’s about cleansing the unhealthy (negative) energy that surrounds us to allow for more healthy (positive) energy to enter our lives…

Looking back I am so grateful I followed my instincts…

Now I know this has intrigued some of  you or has gained your interest so what I would love to do is assist you in discovering the differences like we have. To reduce the chaos, frustration and meltdowns that we were dealing with on a daily basis made a huge impact on what we did and how we coped with so much of our journey and you can have this opportunity too…

All you need to do is comment ‘Yes’ in a message to me on Facebook @ Autism Living Life On The Spectrum if you feel knowing more would add value to your family and lets start a conversation to see how we can reduce the chaos and stress that you are experiencing…

Are you going to put their hand up ?
