More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes, and cancer…combined. No one knows why cases of autism are increasing worldwide. In The Autism Prophecies, award-winning author William Stillman, who is on the autism spectrum himself, completes his spiritual trilogy, including the Nautlus Book Siver Award Winner The Soul of Autism, by revealing the truth about autism and its purpose.
In this intriguing book, readers will learn:
- How some with autism are natural-born healers who employ compassion, despite contradictory diagnoses indicating a void of empathy.
- How “impossible” gifts such as mind control and speaking unknown languages could be occurring in some people with autism.
- How parents can distinguish their child’s spiritual interactions from behavior that might be mislabeled as hallucinatory—and unduly medicated.
- How wisdom of many people with autism may help us to prepare for future hardships and an impending renaissance of civility, respect, and compassion.
The Autism Prophecies challenges the traditionally held beliefs about people with disabilities and allows the reader to discover the spiritual grace of people with autism.
Through his extensive research and interviews with families and persons with autism, author William Stillman shares examples of spiritual giftedness and anecdotes unveiling the amazing sensitivities of people with autism.
Autism shows no signs of abating, despite research, studies, awareness, and fund-raising. At this rate, concurrent with research efforts, it is high time society alters its focus not just for what causes autism, but for what autism causes.
