Always in my Bag

0

We are really trying to reduce the use of plastic! I have to be honest I was shocked when I realized how much plastic we actually were using!!

Even if I feel good that we are recycling  doesn’t help with the bigger problem out there.

Me and my children try to catch each other in every plastic moment. And Me, Mom, are trying to always bring our reusable cups/straws in my bag.

That’s Amore!

Traveling in Different Time Zones 

0

Flying from Germany yesterday, into Detroit, Michigan went well. Kids and me made it easy to travel with only one hand luggage. We are only staying for a couple of days. I am not the most patient person to stay and wait for my luggage. I like to get off the plane and leave directly! The jet leg kicked in and I woke up 02.30 this morning. At 04.09 I went to the gym. No people, how strange !

At 05.30 thank Above Starbucks opened. I was their first customer!

They beauty is though, that I could sit in the quietness and write, while listening to the children’s deep sleeping. It was meditating wonderful start.

However, not at 09.00 when everybody wakes up, I am ready to go back to bed 🙂

That’s Amore!

Summer Vacation

263964_10150223361696512_686306511_7532235_7844568_nI have been told that tomorrow the airfairs are going up in price,  the high season starts. We are many people that want to rest, maybe discover new places, or new food, and read new books.

Workin with animal wellness and welfare (isn’t that the same thing?) summer time is our hardest months with many abandon animals. Many people dump their dogs, or put them out in the garden, alone.

Several of the pets are escaping.

Its heart breaking to see many dogs sitting by their parco waiting for their owner to come home. No one opens the door for several days.

Pets lose their instinct and intuition very quickly, and will not survive many days out alone on the streets. Pets do not know how to get food, since we the humans have kept giving it to them. Children that got homes are being served food by their mother or father, and the children wouldn’t survive, for example, on the streets of Brasil together with homeless children. Children that grew up on the streets had to learn quickly how to survive. Just like the starys, but not the pets.

Start planing for your pets early……That’s Amore!

 

MOTHER EARTH

Earth day

Lets make every day to our Earth day, just like we should make Mothers Day ever day 😉 or like my son says, lets celebrate life every day!

We went for a walk into the forest today–nothing unusual with that though–however, our thanks were longer than we normally do on our walk(s) Children, me and our Horse walked and inhaled Mother Nature into our hearts. We thanked her, the ocean, air, land, animals and for the people that are truly working making changes for the better to our beloved planet. Small as Big!

We only got her.

Small steps, like my friend Malin says, “one step at the time!”

That’s Amore!

Children and Animals Think and Feel with a Strong Presence

The adults have many times difficult to keep one thought at the time. Their thoughts are flying around in a lot of different directions.

For the animals to survive they must focusing only on one thought at a time. With too many thoughts in your head, you people lose your instinct and intuition. That is why many pets can get confused when they receive various directives in their everyday lives.

The horses sacrifice themselves to mankind, especially the riding-school, they continue despite difficulties. Daily, they have different riders with different opinions (skills) that make it hard for the horse’s thinking and understanding. Riding-school horses commutes between man and his own languages, at the same time they are in contact with their soul, to recieve power and strength.

The animals carry the same High Sensitivity and unconditional love that children, and should be treated with respect and not fear.

 

Often I could sense some kind of pain from the riding school horses in the bigger stables. Some horses had lost their personality; their soul was turned off. Some students thought that the horse was lazy and smacked him with a whip, while another student thought he was cute and hugged him.

The Horse in the box next to him stroke his ears back when people approached him. The next week was the sour horse sold, because of the man feeling he was an “unreliable horse.”

When my daughter Olivia rode her own horse on her practice,  her teacher ones shouted, “Stop riding like an Angel!”

Olivia refused to use her whip. “Mom, how can I use the whip when my horse did not do anything stupid! It is I who did not understand. ”

A week later the same teacher told her, “You can not be insecure in your riding, your horse does not understand what it is you want.”

Olivia looked at me, “You see mother, in most cases, its me who do wrong. Why should I beat my horse that is actually my teacher, my teammate! ”

How could I argue with my daughter who had difficulty finding her place on Mother Earth with her own High Sensitivity. Same High sensitivity that the animals got!

The Swedish statistics show that one out of five children is considered Highly Sensitive. These children are taking in more impressions and reading the situations, just like animals. In several cases the children are being medicated as if they had a kind of disease, to better fit into our society/schools.

Daily, I remain extremely grateful to my psychologist when she said, “Mia, in your case, I’m not suggesting medication. You need your sensitivity! ”

 

That’s Amore!

Clarification, there are some children that are better off with being medicated. We can only go from how we know our own children and ourself.

All riding school horses are not unhappy. Again, everything depends on where you are, and it is always in the humans hands. Thank Above are we getting wiser and nicer. ❤
