I was fortunate enough to be able to go to an advanced Son-Rise Program training called Maximum Impact 2 weeks ago. What’s more amazing is my father came with me, inspired to help Ka’eo Jr become all that he can be…to reach his limitless potential!
My revelations at Maximum Impact were 90% attitudinal. I’m finally seeing the power we have within ourselves to create permanent change in our limiting beliefs. True love and happiness
is available to any of us and it doesn’t come from any other source but our own choosing, REGARDLESS of our outside circumstances or past (the stimulus).
Since learning how to TRULY love myself, my son, and my family without any judgments, any expectations, and with no conditions my eyes are completely WIDE OPEN…and so is my heart. I’ve just spent the most 1-on-1 time with my son in his Son-Rise PlayRoom than I have in any other week - since we STARTED our Son-Rise Program. The difference??? My choosing...that’s it. Isn’t that amazing?
When it REALLY comes down to it, it was simply because of my own choices...
All this time, I’ve only “not had enough time” or been “too tired” or thought “Ka’eo Jr’s too tired” because I was choosing to believe that. It’s a funny thing about not having “enough time” or being “too tired”…if the building was burning would you be too tired to run outside?
Have you ever not had enough time to go to work? …not likely, huh?
Looking at Ka’eo, Jr. with such joy, admiration, and enthusiasm has made such a difference in the PlayRoom. EVERY SINGLE TIME I play with him he shows me something new and does
something he’s never done with me in his entire life! Simply stated…miracles are a daily occurrence in my house. What an amazing blessing my son has been to me. In all his autistic bliss, he is my little savior sent directly from God. He is my greatest teacher on this earth.
Today, in the midst of our playtime, I stacked some of his little toy cups and gave it to him.
True to his perfect rhythms, he began to sprinkle the cups down on to the floor. My new found clarity lead me to cheer him on, “go Ka’eo go! You’re dropping the cups! Yes Baby, you can do it!!!” I was celebrating him just as any other parent might celebrate their own son as he charges down the field toward the end zone.
Ka’eo Jr looked at me with wonder… I celebrated his spontaneous look into my eyes and quickly stacked the cups again, “here you go! You’re the best! Do it again! Woo hoo!”
As Ka’eo Jr sprinkled the cups again, I pounded on the carpet and cheered as if he was dribbling past all defenders, ready to shoot the winning basket, “alright Ka’eo! Look at that! You’re soooo good at that!”
Ka’eo Jr giggled to see my amusement and when he was done he squealed with accomplishment and ran to me. I grabbed him and tickled him and we giggled and laughed together!
Again and again we played our new game, complete interaction, sincere enthusiasm, and pure love of one another. At the end of our session I realized he’d looked at me, SPONTANEOUSLY, 91 times.
Heaven on earth is REAL, it happens every day in Ka’eo Jr’s playroom…BELIEVE
