Sparkle of Love or Thunder of Anger

We all yell sometimes! It can be for many different reasons. Some maybe doesn’t think it has a bad affect, they are only releasing some steam.

No one likes to be yelled at. No one!

Most important, No children should have to start their mornings by being yelled at. Going to school feeling miserable, stomach ache, nervous not getting to the bathroom on time.

No other children on the school yard understands why the sadness, or frustration in the kids face. They didn’t hear him being yelled at in the car, before being dropped off by school.

The child’s inner voice feeling rejected, worthless, hurt, stupid.

The teacher doesn’t know what’s going on. Maybe the child will be labeled for something that’s not accurate. Lazy, dreamer, trouble maker, meaner!

How would we feel if our boss or neighbor yelled at us? How would we go through our day?

What would your inner voice tell you?

If and when we lose it, apologize and talk about it to the child. Admit that you acted wrongly. Talk about a solution calmly and invite your child to come up with a solution too.

Don’t forget that hug, and eye contact.

Eyes never lies.

Sparkle love to your own heart, breath, and sparkle double extra to your child’s heart(s)

That’s Amore!

Why the Hate?
Dear Friends and Followers,

img_5006
I feel compelled to address some comments that have come to my attention regarding Olivia’s involvement in our horse rescue campaigns and her role with AWL and our horses. It makes me very sad that I even had to take the time to write this, but I want to go on record with our petition.
Anyone who knows me, and AWL, will know that I have always included my children, where appropriate, in our rescue missions. I believe very strongly in teaching compassion and helping my children to learn how wonderful and enriching relationships with animals can be for our lives.

And I hope that one day they will help me to spread the word about animal rescue as they go out into the world.
Recently, my daughter Olivia has been playing an active role in our horse rescues. And she has been visible in our campaigns and fundraising efforts.
She has her own private horse, Sunshine and is on her way to becoming an accomplished rider. But I wanted her to understand the plight of horses who are not as fortunate as Sunshine. And to understand the complicated and very challenging process of rescuing those horses. And also, the care involved once they are rescued.
Somehow, somewhere along the line, some people have started to speculate that we are rescuing horse FOR Olivia. And the story is being changed into Olivia somehow having a very privileged position in this process. I don’t know the motivation.
Jealousy? Bitterness? Ignorance?
Whatever the case, it has resulted in Olivia being insulted, bullied, made to feel bad for doing something good that comes from her heart and her love of animals.
So going forward I am going to keep Olivia’s contributions to our horse rescue missions more private.
She will, of course, help me to care for these wonderful animals who need a team to keep them well. But I will not shine a spotlight on her until I feel it will be safe and productive to do so.
The animal rescue community is full of wonderful people. And so many times we must waste energy defending our good works against those who spew hate.
I continue to hope against all hope that I will not have to do this again.
Love,
Mia

Words Transforms who You are

brain talks

Yesterday, a person told me, “You are impossible!”

Now, you are reading it with your own inner ‘voice’ and it might not sound so bad to you. And also, in what contents was it said to me? Was their a little giggle in the executers voice, or was it said in a frustration tone?

Words are powerful, and words can have different meanings.

We use words every day, but are we aware of how they are being said, and received?

The whole day yesterday alone in my car for 4 hours, was I wrestling with the words ‘you are impossible’ It was like my brain had this dialog;

‘you are impossible!’ followed quickly with the words; ‘No you are not!’

“yes you are!”

“shut up!”

“no I won’t , you are impossible!”

Frustration that I was actually waisting my time listening to this yida yada.

However, it actually goes way back in time, to my childhood. Being told I wasn’t good enough, and I couldn’t do this or that.

Teachers, telling me I wasn’t good enough! (not all of course)

When being born, you start to receive words, and for each year, you are being included with more and more different people. That will tell you, nice words, harsh words, and words that can kill you (suicide)

The brain is a receiver. “You are stupid!” someone tells you (or you say it yourself).

The brain says, “Ok I am stupid”!

Encourage yourself, family, children, strangers, schoolchildren, animals….everyone you meet. Even to our Nature. Then yours, and others internal voice will be so much pretty.

Be aware of what you say, and be aware of what you listen to.

That’s Amore!

I love working with Animals. I have been privileged to do so since 20 years ago or is it more?

To rescue you an Animals is also being rescued yourself. The animals keep reminding you to stay focused on one main thing and the rest will follow. Trust in life and to become well again. Stop eating, however drink water, meditate and sick help also from someone with knowledge and experience and passion.

This is GummiBear that came to me and AWL 2 1/2 month ago. He was thin, heart problem, Cushing, low on iron.

In the moment with feelings like trust and love, you are already on the right way!

Let me Tell you Something

I am old, however, filled with wisdoms.

When you listens without any expectations, you will know what to do, and what road to continue on.

Don’t always fight me to be right, see me as your teammate.

Don’t take out your frustration on me, I am not your punchbag. We are thinking living creatures that has emotions and thoughts.

Give back, and your heart will forever say thank you.

That’s Amore!
