Autism - A new breed of angels or Lightworkers?

Is it possible that autistic people are mystics, spiritual savants or Lightworkers incognito?  Or perhaps angels walking among us? Those following my blog know I don’t review books.  But not too long ago I was privy to reading a prepublication galley of a new book “AWEtizm: A Hidden Key to Our Spiritual Magnificence.”The book not only challenged the way I look at an autistic person, it challenged the way I look at this world.

“AWEtizm” puts a totally new spin on autism.  It’s the journey of Gayle, a mother who has a daughter diagnosed with severe autism as an infant.  With a recommendation that Lyrica be institutionalized, Gayle refuses to give up on her.  Instead she dedicates her life to reaching her daughter and understanding the disease.  What she learns and shares in “AWEtizm” brings hope to a very misunderstood condition.

Their journey takes off when at age eight, Lyrica who was previously unreachable with no verbal communication skills and limited cognitive ability sits before a keyboard and using an assisted typing method writes, “I am not retarded, I am intelligent.”  Whoa!  Gayle stumbled upon a method to communicate with her daughter and enters Lyrica’s world learning practical things like why autistic people avoid eye contact and why they have fits.  What evolves further however goes beyond exploring the psyche of an individual with severe autism.

When Lyrica shares wisdom beyond this world to her mother it becomes apparent that Gayle is the student and Lyrica the teacher.  Gayle discovers her daughter has the abilities of soul traveling, telepathy, healing, embodying oneness and other mystical gifts sages experience.  Lyrica also communicates with angels and spiritual beings of other dimensions.  

Gayle takes her facilitated typing method to other autistic people and learns they too share some of Lyrica’s amazing gifts.  What is inspirational and offers hope is that Lyrica shares her experience of breaking her barrier and offers a new take on life, “I love my new life in autism.”  This love of life is shared not only in Gayle’s words but also Lyrica’s, as “AWEtizm” is co-authored by mother and daughter.  Additionally, contributions of three other autistic friends add depth and validate Lyrica’s insights, making this book like no other book on autism and no other book on spirituality.

To this reader and writer, it is apparent “AWEtizm” is not a book about a disease.  It is a book which shatters every traditional belief about how autistic people fit into this world.  More importantly, when an autistic person’s barrier is shattered what emerges is a spiritual savant who loves life knowing he or she is walking this planet with a purpose larger than life itself.  And to those people around them sharing in this transformation (like Lyrica’s mother Gayle), they are blessed with spiritual awakening and miracles.

There are many messages within this book, and the writing is not always easy.  In fact, Lyrica’s writing is rich in meaning and offers radical views about this world and how autistic people impact the spiritual evolution of our planet.  I needed to read some of her chapters and meditate to better grasp the messages’ meanings.  Could it be that autistic beings when activated are part of this shift everyone is talking about?  Could it be that autistic beings are Lightworkers incognito here to spark our spiritual magnificence? 

"AWEtizm: A Hidden Key to Our Spiritual Magnificence" by Gayle Barkly Lee and Lyrica Mia Marquez is available at www.AWEtizm.com.  I invite you to view the book trailer I’ve placed on this page, or connect with Gayle  them on Facebook, Twitter or YouTube. Wish them luck as their new book opens eyes and hearts.

Namaste.

    Thank yo SO much for this beautiful awe inspiring way to view autism. I recently discovered someone I love very dearly has Awetism. Before reading this I would have said that they suffer from it; but today I realize it is the rest of us who suffer from a lack of understanding! My deepest appreciation and gratitude to you Alex living life as a positive example, leadership, service to humanity and lightworking. Number 9 also relates to endings and conclusions. Number 1 resonates with self-reliance, new beginnings and progress, activity and energy, inspiration, attainment and fulfilment. The double 1 resonates with the Karmic Master Number 11, which brings its attributes of illumination and enlightenment, inspiration, symbols, alternate consciousness, mysticism, catalyst, sensitivity, enthusiasm, creative/creativity. This makes the number 911 a powerfully spiritual vibration.


    Angel Number 911 is a highly karmic and spiritual number that encourages you to pursue your life purpose and soul mission as a Lightworker. It tells of leadership and living life as a positive example in order to illuminate the way for others to follow. 911 is a vibration of spiritual enlightenment and awareness and of reaping karmic rewards for work well done.


    The Angel Number 911 indicates that the angels are telling you that a new door has opened up for you as a product of your positive thoughts, intentions and actions. Make the most of this opportunity and walk forward with confidence and surety, knowing that you are fulfilling your karmic destiny.


    The repeating number 911 suggests that your goals are almost complete, and/or that you are coming to the end of a phase or cycle in your life. It is an indication that one door is closing and another is opening. The message is to allow the 'old' to be released so it is able to be replaced with the 'new'.

    *P.S. The reason I refereed to the time of reading this post is because it is a very significant message from the Angels: "The number 911 carries the vibrations of the numbers 9, 1 and the Master Number 11. Number 9 resonates with the attributes of Universal Spiritual Laws, compassion, benevolence and generosity, living life as a positive example, leadership, service to humanity and lightworking. Number 9 also relates to endings and conclusions. Number 1 resonates with self-reliance, new beginnings and progress, activity and energy, inspiration, attainment and fulfillment. The double 1 resonates with the Karmic Master Number 11, which brings its attributes of illumination and enlightenment, inspiration, symbols, alternate consciousness, mysticism, catalyst, sensitivity, enthusiasm, creative/creativity. This makes the number 911 a powerfully spiritual vibration.
