Improve Compassion

0

We can improve how we respond to women (all living breathing humans) in distress. 🖤 Those who still suffers and, often, suffering secretly. But also teenagers, I meet often many in distress and anxiety.

It is important we learn their names and stories. It should not take years. Children and teenagers, should only be concerned about homework and whats for dinner. Thats what I told to the Justice department.

That’s Amore!

Be Thankful for all new Instincts

My Weekly column in Magazine NARA, September 2012 Hope you will enjoy reading. Can children teach us more?

BE THANKFUL FOR ALL NEW INSTINCTS;

Children and dogs are often very lovely together, and they have a lot to teach we adults. They demonstrate how to be in the moment, have compassion and enthusiasm, ingenuity, fantasy and ideas.

Children’s natural way of being and their balance with former street dogs is a beautiful play. The kids are thinking a lot and share their wonderful questions, which in turn allow me to look in my mind for the answers. And if I do not find the answer I seek it further later on.

On weekends, there are many children with their parents visiting us at the Hospice. I love watching kids fall down on their knees to get to the same height as the dogs, or small children standing on their tiptoes to give the bigger dogs a kiss on their head.

I love children’s compassion towards the elderly clients. Meanwhile, I notice how much that has been forgotten within me. Together with my own two children we are now practicing how to be more in the present and work more on our intuition and our thoughts.

When we eat dinner, we frequently thank for our food, to be grateful and at the same time give thanks to the long path before the food ends up on the plates in front of us. I ask Olivia and Max who we should thank: the earth, the rain, the sun, farmers, transportation, stores, dad’s job, mom’s wallet and the cook.

Besides that we have a lot of fun, it’s also stimulating for me. I noticed with myself how hard I have to get started with my imagination.

A few times a week in the evenings, we experiment with silence. We put ourselves down on the floor for about fifteen minutes and then we say nothing. (Here it is hard for me not to fall asleep!)

Then we talk about what thoughts, smells or any concerns that come up. This is also a good start to learn how to meditate, become aware of our thoughts and to learn to “control” them. But it is also a chance for everyone to think through what is moving around inside us.

Sometimes in life we push away thoughts, forget them or we do not want to remember. And over time, it might be difficult to talk about the suppressed thoughts.

Many years ago I met a happy little guy who understood that I could communicate with animals. He knew that it was through the thoughts that communication took place.

We were with my dog Tjojs when the little guy told me he had bought a gift for Tjojs, but he would whisper it to me what it was, or Tjojs could hear it. “You are not allowed to think about it, because then Tjojs will ‘hear’ it!” the little guy said. But he was disappointed. He had thought about the gift to Tjojs, and expected that she would jump excitedly, but she never jumped.

Talking with children is amazing. We hear many deep thoughts and we should be able to learn something from their natural approach to life’s mysteries.

That’s Amore!

Word-less Healing

0

🖤 You never lost me, I only lost myself.

You showed me trust and every day was a new day. No judgement, only encouragement.
You let me take the time I needed since You knew that time doesn’t exist. Despite being abandoned, You never abandoned me.


You who use no words and have no freedom, gave me healing, a belief in myself, a new better version of myself. You gave comfort. You… you gave me my freedom back.
You alone, did what no other humans could do.


It’s time 👑
That’s Amore!

A Lonely Teenager

0

❤️‍🩹 no children will be exposed however, some wants to share their story and experiences. We always ask the child/teenagers parent.

We want to share with you what the Animals are contributing to our health and mind and heart.

Martin 13 years old don’t want to ride but he likes to come and walk one of the horses ones in a while.
“I am very alone, got no friends and during the Covid 19 I become more isolated. But too Julia I can talk and tell her about my life. I talk about everything. And I get to practice my German. She makes me calm and my anxiety and sadness lowers dramatically. It’s like I forget I am alone.”

Please keep supporting our program to adults/teenagers and children in need of comfort from AWL Animals

That’s Amore!

Court Support

I think this is a very brilliant and important way to have court dogs.

I know for a fact many that would have wanted this kind of support.

Does your country has this kind of support?

I stayed for the sake of my children. Now I blame myself for the effect my decision may have had on them. Why did I stay?
But I heard myself asking for help. Office after office, different faces. Call after call, different voices. Weeks became years. I became a case number not a person anymore.
Slowly without realizing it, I became more and more isolated. I was financially dependent. I was deprived of sleep. I was told and thought I was useless. I was paralyzed by constantly being on guard for the next attack. The moral club hammered just about everything.
I stayed because I was more afraid leaving him. —Mother’s 🌻
🖤
Jag stannade för mina barns skull. Nu klandrar jag mig själv för hur effekten av mitt beslut kan ha påverkat dem. Varför stannade jag?
Men jag hörde min röst ropa efter hjälp. Kontor efter kontor främmande ansikten efter ansikten. Samtal efter samtal olika röster. Veckor blev till år. Jag var inte längre en människa, utan ett ärendenummer.
Sakta utan att jag märkte det blev jag mer och mer isolerad. Jag var ekonomiskt beroende. Jag var sömnberövad. Jag fick höra och trodde att jag var värdelös. Jag var paralyserad av att ständigt vara på vakt för nästa attack. Moral klubban hamrade om precis allting.
Jag stannade, för att jag var mera rädd att lämna honom. —Mamma🌻

Emotions are Loud in the Silence

🖤 Emotionally abuse is to often not taken seriously. It cannot always been seen. Or, explained in words by Children and Animals.


When an Animal or Child are sending voiceless actions, it’s speaking to you.


That’s Voiceless Amore!
