Deeper Perception Made Practical

Autism Researcher Fred Volkmar

Best Celebrity Aura Readings


Autism is hardly rare. Not today, and especially not among male children. Yale professor Fred Volkmar is a leader in autism research. He is also a molecular empath. Meet him first on this YouTube Video about autism, if you like.


Today’s post explores what makes him so special, courtesy of a Skilled Empath Merge. Created for you Blog-Buddies as an unusual tribute to Mother’s Day, tomorrow’s holiday, since 1 in 100 male American children is born on the autism spectrum. Like the son of a dear friend of mine, Tracy Monson, who actively works as an advocate for autistic kids. Or the daughter of another dear Blog-Buddy, Row Beatty, who is one fast grower.

Personal growth for such a family is hard but fast. Reason to celebrate around the Mother’s Day holiday.

As for us parents who have not had this highly evolutionary calling, to parent such a child, on Mother’s Day we are just thankful we have had that much an easier job.

So for us, also, reason to celebrate….

Nominated by ANONYMOUS for our  Contest about Molecular Empaths and evaluated there as Nominee #4., here comes delightful Dr. Fred. Read along with me by opening up the  same big Autism Research Hero photo I’m using for this energetic literacy research. If that disappears, click on this dependable Fred Volkmar photosave. He’s great for aura reading and I would definitely trust him as a candidate for Skilled Empath Merge.

Note: Over time, links can go bad. And legally I don’t have the rights to show celebrity photos, so I can’t display them here other than providing links. But you can easily go over to Google, type in the person’s name and the blog post date, then search on images. Click on a good image, preferably current with the time of the reading here at this blog.

Connection to Physical Reality Databank at the Root Chakra

Variable range, 6 inches to deep space. Dr. Volkmar appreciates reality but he can also move out with consciousness into the most abstract perceptions of reality.

Thus, he couldn’t be better qualified to study what happens with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, etc.

Not autistic himself, Volkmar can move into a similar experience. To tell if he has always had this ability or, as is more likely, developed it… we would need to research him earlier in life, way earlier. And then compare.

This is how regular Energetic Literacy skills, such as I’m using here, can answer questions in a systematic way. It’s plodding, compared to folks who do psychic readings, but a way different approach. No matter how good you get at aura reading, using skills of Energetic Literacy rather than psychic development, you’ll wind up being that kind of plodder. Not too shabby, though.

Here and now, just reseaching this first chakra databank, from this one photograph, guess what? It is evident that this is one very, very evolved man with the most extraordinary standing in consciousness to do research in the autism field.

Flow of Energy with Regular (Non-Autistic) People Databank at the Belly Chakra

Hey, what a perfect opportunity for…

A small aura reading technical interlude

You experienced aura readers already know that half of a person’s chakra databanks at any given time are “Standard Issue Human.” Such as the chakra databanks you learn to read in connection with having more successful relationships in “Read People Deeper.”

By contrast, when you use Stage Three Energetic Literacy, whether as an aura reader or a skilled empath doing a merge, you may know that half of a person’s chakra databanks are quite personal — we could even call them “situational.”

Based on how you live, choices in lifestyle, interests and passions and how you spend human time: This causes you to develop different chakra databanks from your family and friends. Some day, maybe Yale researchers like Dr. Volkmar, will explore the connection between neuroplasticity and chakra databanks.

Each person’s hundreds of chakra databanks function at the astral level and correspond to processes at the subconscious mind. They can easily be read with regular Stage Three Energetic Literacy. And the last Aura Reading Workshops, every single workshop participant moved forward briskly to that advanced stage of Energetic Literacy in one weekend. It’s just literacy, folks, no weirder than the Gutenberg literacy that helps you to read this screen right now.

Everybody has a chakra databank like the one I’m about to read. Only it’s usually called “Flow of Energy with People.” I’m naming it differently for Dr. Fred in order to set up a contrast with the unusual, individual chakra databank I am going to read afterwards.

Now, back to Flow of Energy with Regular (Non-Autistic) People Databank at the Belly Chakra

14 inches. Just hanging out with people, not giving a speech or posing for official photographs, Fred Volkmar is (frankly) shy. He needs more personal space than most folks do, recharging during interactions and recharging even more deeply after interactions with people.

I am impressed with the learning this man has done to learn how to recharge so quickly that most people would not notice. But I’ll bet if someone showed Dr. Volkmar this article he would give quite a laugh at being outed in my (hopefully, obviously) affectionate way.

Flow of Energy with Autistic People Databank at the Root Chakra

Expandable, starting with 6 inches. Fred can join exactly where that autistic person’s consciousness is.

  • Say that Joe is high functioning and manages to re-position his consciousness in social situations, such as talking with Dr. Volkmar. Volkmar will join him, even coax him, into feeling comfortable at that close-to-regular surface human level. (A bit like how a really good radio interviewer can make a guest feel comfortable, creating a perfect flow for the interview.)
  • Say that Gladys is way, way out there, pulsating consciousness out to the moon. Dr. Volkmar can join her there, hanging out, yet subtly demonstrating how to position consciousness at the human level, like a giant with one huge leg striding the world and the other leg like a teenage human. (“Auric modeling,” we call that around Deeper Perception Made Practical.)\

If Volkmar works as a clinician these days, he could definitely “bring back” autistic patients who are eager to learn how to function better. With enough exposure to Volkmar’s energetic “who you be,” that could do the trick.

Decorating his auric modeling with words or concepts could bring results faster. But there can always be such a gap between teacher and student, any student of Volkmar’s would need to be able to manage the auric modeling to bring satisfactory results. Just getting the words and concepts wouldn’t do the trick.

Note: I’m writing this as an aura reader who knows nothing, nothing about Volkmar’s work. I’m not even going to watch the linked up YouTube at the start of this post until I have first done this research.

Perhaps some of you Blog-Buddies are familiar with this autism leader’s body of work and can comment on what I am writing about him, based on Skilled Empath Merge. I would like that!

Sharing Power with Regular People Databank at the Solar Plexus Chakra

Even a casual conversation includes habits of sharing power, which relate to performance at this Sharing Power Chakra Databank.

20 feet of health self-respect.

Sensitivity isn’t uppermost. Nor is the trademark molecular empath’s ability to research the minute, most granular, qualities of another human being.

In my language, evolved for training empaths, Fred Volkmar is a superbly skilled empath. His regular way of being with other people, managing the everyday give-and-take, is to have his empath gifts firmly turned OFF. As any skilled empath has learned to do, whether self-taught or taught my system of Empath Empowerment(R) or owning any method that works.

Sharing Power with Austistic People Databank at the Solar Plexus Chakra

Again, this is one of those beautiful chakra databanks specific to the Yale professor, not something you would probably bother researching in yourself, Blog-Buddies — not unless you, too, had frequent dealings with someone with autism.

18 feet. Volkmar stands firm as human, unbending. He models how to socialize competently within the human spectrum (rather than the autistic spectrum).

Yet, being in the room with autistic Joe or Gladys, Fred’s molecular empath circuits turned ON, giving him detailed access to that other person’s attempts to interpersonally accomplish goals of speech and action while maintaining a sense of self. (This being one way to phrase my working definition of what it means to have, and share, personal “power.”)

The other extraordinary characteristic here is the deep compassion, a kind of nurturing of that autistic person blended with everyday respect. To put it into a slogan, I’d approximate it like this:

“I respect you. I will support you. Sure, I know you can zoom far out; doesn’t shock me. I’m here semi-pretending that I don’t know what on earth that is, to make you come closer to my way of functioning. You can do it. I’ll be slightly tough on you. Let’s not make this into a big, hard deal. Doesn’t have to be.”

    Great read!

    Quick question Rose, would this be part of your definition of an introvert, if you do indeed find such a label useful? “He needs more personal space than most folks do, recharging during interactions and recharging even more deeply after interactions with people.” People use the term rather broadly, but I think you’ve commented before that certain data banks do show a configuration one way or the other. Maybe this is an example?

    In regard to autism, which is on the rise, especially for boys as you note, I do wonder if you have an interpretation or theory as to what causes autism. I think I remember you wondering before whether past life drug use can cause someone to incarnate with an autistic configuration. I also think that people do choose to incarnate austistically (wow, that’s actually an adverb!) as part of a life contract, which as you alluded to, offers extra potential for growth. Curious to know what you have to say!

  2. 2

    DAVE, first your harder question, the why.

    Clearly some souls do choose to incarnate with autism, or other unusual ways of being human such as physical disabilities, chronic illness, developmentally disabled, having a lifelong syndrome that requires psychiatric medication.

    There are also souls who agree to have such children.

    As you know, DAVE, I’m no expert on life contracts at the heavenly end. Except I do offer sessions of Soul Energy Awakening (sometimes called Energy Release Regression Therapy, but this year I am phasing in the new name).

    This sort of self-recognition and healing, where I support the client’s experience with my skills, is a great way to learn for yourself about what happened during your Planning Ceremony before birth.

    Or you could locate and heal frozen blocks from other lifetimes related to the current situation.

    The place to start would be a phone session or in-person session of Energy Spirituality.

  3. 3

    Use of drugs like marijuana or heroin can put in place frozen blocks that affect people deeply, in the current incarnation or future lifetimes.

    I don’t remember ever having related this to autism, etc. Perhaps you’re remembering my noting something I read that made a big impression on me circa 1967. Edgar Cayce did a reading once where he commented on a client with epilepsy, to the effect that:

    “It is not surprising that you have epilepsy in this lifetime since, in your last lifetime, you did a lot of work as a trance channeler.”

    STUFF releated to drugs or positioning of consciousness can always, always, always be healed. See my practical recommendation in the last comment.

  4. 4

    Now, DAVE, for the far cheerier topic of being an introvert or extravert.

    What I described with Fred Volkmar is way different from being an introvert.

    Sure, reading different chakra databanks would reveal gifts of the soul, also patterns overall in that chakra databank as a whole. Any of these components might be linked to being an introvert or extravert.

    Face reading is a really cool way to understand being one AND the other. Because most of us are combinations of introvert and extravert.

  5. 5

    If you remind me, DAVE and other Blog-Buddies, after my new face reading book is published in August, I will write a blog post on the topic of face reading for who is an extravert, who is an introvert, and some of the ways it shows facially.

    Now it’s time to get back to my work on that book. Sssshhhh, not another word about it as my secret laboratory of publishingness does its woo-woo work….

    Amy says:

    I think Dave is referring to this article where you speculated but didn’t actually make an explicit link.

    ” The jury still is out on whether taking tokes this time leads to other lifetimes with autism.”

  7. 7

    Yes, speculation is possible with the long-term consequences of ANY recreational chemicals.

    Thanks, AMY. Golly, between you and DAVE, my memory DOES get refreshed.

    Dave says:

    Thanks for the thorough responses Rose! Excellent! I’ve read basically every blog post available on this website, and most all your books, so I will be looking forward to your new book, and keeping tuned to new developments in your healing practices, obviously.

    Dear Rose,

    Thank you so much for doing this reading! I find Dr. Volkmar both delightful and fascinating. It was a privilege to learn more about him. He is inspiring in so many ways.

    Would you say that autism is an EXTREME form of empathy?

  11. 11

    CITRUSRAID, what an interesting question.

    And welcome to “Deeper Perception Made Practical.”

    No, autism has nothing to do with being born as an empath.

    I’m aware that autism is a spectrum. The entire spectrum has nothing to do with being an empath.

  12. 12

    What fascinates me especially about your question is how helpful it is to have Stage Three Energetic Literacy as a basis for providing an answer to your great question.

    As you may know by now, CITRUSAID, with full aura reading abilities, you can research the aura of any person at any time — whether in person or from a photograph.

    Doing this, as I have, with many autistic persons, I can come to a conclusion which is very different from a general feeling, Stage One Energetic Literacy.

    It isn’t unusual for someone who is talented at aura reading, but not yet very skilled, to “pick up on a feeling” or “get a vibe” about someone.

    The self-authority, or inner knowing, aspect is great.

    Not so great, the skill level.

  13. 13

    When someone lacks skill at Deeper Perception, it can be so tricky to value one’s reaction — e.g. “Get a gut feeling” that Joe has a far-out, unusual kind of consciousness.

    And then a person can go on, with only the very beginner’s skill level of Stage One Energetic Literacy, to meet Gladys and “Get a hit” that empath Gladys is also kind of unusual in her consciousness.

    With that skill level, it might seem as though they are similar. Or that Joe has what Gladys does, only more so.

    However, when you can research people all the way down to the level of chakra databanks, you will be able to tell this isn’t so, not at all.

  14. 14

    CITRUSRAID, you really have inspired me to, finally, provide some aura reading research on an autistic person.

    So check out the blog this week. I’ll do what I can to supply that aura reading.

    Already at this blog are plenty of detailed aura readings and Skilled Empath Merges with empaths.

    And there is an aura reading of a prominent researcher into autism, here:

    Very interesting reading about Fred Volkmar…
    ‘Not autistic himself, Volkmar can move into a similar experience.’

    Isabelle says:

    I used to work as assistant for a ten year old autistic girl.

    The moment we met, I could totally see where and who she was.

    We could interact very well, her mother was surprised.

  17. 17
    Isabelle says:

    I think part of this could be because ‘I became (like) her’, still (partially) maintaining my own sense of self (quite a hard job then).

    Sometimes when I finished work it took me a while to feel only like myself again.

  18. 18
    Isabelle says:

    Is part of being a molecular empath understanding and ‘becoming’ the other to 100 per cent? To me it feels like…

    When I meet drug addicts, homeless people, mentally ill people or for example autistic people, I understand them and see them so clearly.

  19. 19
    Isabelle says:

    ‘Weird’ or ‘strange’ people somehow don’t exist for me. Because I become them. (just taking people who are not viewed as ‘the norm’ as an example).

    I hope this makes sense…

  20. 20
    Isabelle says:

    Very interesting but also exhausting and this is why I want to become more skilled as an empath:)

  21. 21

    Thanks for this series of comments, ISABELLE.

    Regarding your Comment 19, not quite. Having experiences of ‘becoming’ another person up to 100 per cent, temporarily — all empath gifts result in this. Especially if someone is using a dedicated technique of Skilled Empath Merge.

    Being a molecular empath is just one of the 15 empath gifts described in detail in “The Empowered Empath: Owning, Embracing and Managing Your Special Gifts.”

  22. 22

    Important for you to appreciate, ISABELLE, this IS exhasting.

    It is not necessary.

    It does not help other people nearly so much as the not-yet-skilled empath assumes.

    You can actually be far more helpful to others — and YOURSELF — by developing empath skills.

    Glad you are on that path now!

  23. 23

    In Enlightenment, a person doesn’t find others weird or strange. And then it’s because they just are.

    If, along with that state of consciousness you have developed skills for Skilled Empath Merge or aura reading, you can check out details as much as you wish.

    That would supplement your being able to accept, in a totally healthy way, what is.

    I remember reading this post and I didn’t know at that time that my son has Autism. I don’t merge with my son. I pay attention to his body language (he is non verbal) and I find we communicate pretty well.

    I do join him in his world in terms of finding out what he likes and how he understand things, but I’ve never felt the desire to merge with him.

    Something very interesting has happened with my son in terms of how his eye contact has returned and his ability to communicate is improving all the time. As an empath and someone who is pretty sensitive I notice these things immediately and I wonder about them, but they aren’t to do with me trying to blend with my son. There is a magic in communicating non verbally without using an empath merge.

    Thank you very much, ROSE, this was very helpful.

    Thanks Sylvia! My son had taught me so much about communication. It’s a challenge for me to understand someone who isn’t neurotypical, but I like a challenge 🙂
