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.”
