WishIhadknown, First... please take my remarks with the spirit with which they are made... only out of concern and hope you can find a more
comfortable repose with your son's amazing gifts.
Important piece of information, when you said his dreams "don't seem to bother him."
Re-read some of what you have written. "I don't know how to help him with his dreams".
Yet, that is an inaccurate statement of what's going on, sir/ma'am, isn't it?
YOU are disturbed by his dreams. You are taking your perception and things you are afraid of, and looking at his dreams through the lense of your own
fears. He is a human being... so I can assure you, if he hasn't reacted to YOUR fear about his dreams yet, eventually he will... and you probably
won't make the association or connection when he does... you'll perceive it as him having a problem...
...it's already clear from your comments you are doing that very thing already.
Sometimes a zany dream is just a zany dream. Dreams are certainly a lot of things... but one thing they are, is a place where the psyche just get's
to blow off steam, and process and sort things for the well being of the mind and psyche.
Describing him the way you are... you are very blessed to have a kid like that... autism or not. The labels out of DSM 5 are useful from an
understanding standpoint (autistic, savant, etc...) but your son is clearly much much more than those labels or diagnosis.
No matter what he dreams, all is well. Don't let his dreams disturb you... they are just blessed nature working inside him.
Julien of Norwich... a Christian mystic who was alive just prior to the Renaissance... she had a seies of visions while she lay on her death bed (she
then recovered her health).
In her writings about her mystical experience, she shared what she understood about life and all that is, thusly:
"All is well... everything is well... every manner of thing shall be well."
Don't fear your sons gifts... even his dreams. If you react with fear to his dreams... he will start to fear telling them to you and it will confuse
him that you are afraid of them.
Best wishes to you and your family
