Bearded Dragon at the Reptile Veterinarian

0

Our beloved AWL bearded dragon Bobby, had to go to the veterinarian yesterday. I had found a fantastic reptile veterinarian only an hour away from our Animal Sanctuary.
Bobby bleeds from his mouth, especially when he eats grasshoppers!
I am the only one handling Bobby, and during his stay here for 3 weeks, nothing special has happened!

Veterinarian examined him and told me that Bobby got an old fracture on his jaw. The jaw is trying to heal!

We have no idea what or when this could have happened! The former person that cared about him said he thought he bleed from his mouth when shedding.
When rescuing animals, even with a story being told to you about the animal, bring the animal(s) to be examined by an experienced person!

When Bobby came to us a piece of his tail was gone, and several toes missing. We don’t know why…we can only guess. He has been in different homes before finally ending up with us.

For now, he will be without crickets for two weeks, and after that, another examination at the veterinarian!

In the Animal’s Own World are no Depressions

“We think you should start eating antidepressant medicine. You have mild depression? “said the psychologist to me.

I’m depressed!

That could not be true!

Every day I thanked for things and events in my life. Or, did I only gratify my gratitude while my thoughts were somewhere else?

I did not want to medicate myself!

I almost never even ate headache pills.

I watched all my dogs lying in my office in a wonderful peacefulness; “Why are you not depressed?” I thought.

I knew that some animals took antidepressants. Perhaps because of a broken heart, just like we humans.

Animals living with together with people learn your behaviors.

But we who are free will not become depressed, because we live in the present moment. We do not think forward because it does not exist yet.

In addition, we honor our own when it’s time to say good-bye. We do not allow the sorrow to manifest.

The animals do not always reach you. There are many animals waiting for you to call to them for help.

Was my mild depression an awakening?

Is depression an awakening?

When you see depression as something ugly you cannot heal yourself.

Animals do not feel sorry for themselves. Where there is love, is security.

 

Horses that heal people, echoed within my heart!

I quickly disappeared down to the stable. Grooming the horse and I was in a meditative state.

I prepared to ride my first riding lesson.

Later in the day my nine-year-old son Max outburst, “Mom, what kind of spell did the horse give to you? You’re so happy! ”

I knew I was finally on the right track!

 

That’s Amore!

Horses has the Ability to Change our Lives

The amazing way of being a freelance writer is that you get to pick the people you want to met, and the people you want the world to met. I felt like a super mini Oprah, but the feeling of amazing was there.

Mia works  with her horse Brumman. Together they hold courses in mindfulness. However, it is Brumman who holds in all the tools, and finds out very fast in every person what they need to work with.

Amazingly, you dont need any horse experience. Just an open mind and heart.

Even if Brumman had had a difficult past, she moved on without bitterness or aggression. When Mia let her heal in her own tempo and with multivitamins and love, Brumman woke up and started to heal humans.

 

They do not live in the past. Nor do they selfpitty. Its full force in evey moment, the moment of now!

You can read the whole faccinating artcile in the Swedish Magazine Nara.

Thank you so much Mia Holm for your amazing work together with the horses. And Tuss Bennegard for your amazing pictures and donation to AWL

That’s Amore!

 

Horses put a Spell on you?

0

Horses truly got the ability to heal people. They are fantastic teachers to build up your inner strength. Even quicker than an psychologist 😉

After my first lesson with a great German instructor,  I felt right away terrific. I admit, it was scary wonderful. My legs were like spagetthi when I jumped off. And the horse speed felt like 100km/h even when he only trotted. But I did it!

I even got to borrow a horse dictionary; English/German/French

Trying to understand what it is I am supposed to do on top of the horse! Umsitzen, ganze bahne….!

After my first riding lesson  I went home to my son (9y) Some time later he lookes at me suspicious and said, “Mom, did the horse make a spell on you? You are so happy!”

Glad he noticed. He didn’t know that I had started riding instead of eating pills.

And, I feel great continuing riding, I am doing something for Me! I feel alive.

That’s Amore!

Street Dogs and People Heal their Inner Anger in Different Ways

My  column in the Swedish Tidningen Nara

The insecurity inside of us can make it difficult to balance a direct communication with balanced feelings. Often it is our own egos that put a stop to the unconditional love for ourselves and others. When we understand that it is ourselves that we have to love without criticizing, the fears that pierce our hearts will disappear.
We are created by the Universe and are perfect.
Once again, I read from my notebook. How could a dog be that spiritual deeper than myself, a human?
Immediately I was ashamed over my own thought. Who was I to judge or condemn?
The wise street dog that sat beside me would not be owned by anyone.
His eyes were glittering humbly, and still I was ashamed even more by my previous notion of superiority.
I realized that although his freedom would be short on the streets, he was ok with it. For him the freedom was not to be on anyone’s “leash” and moreover, freedom had no sense of time.
Once more, I felt shame over my own faith experiences. The more people (and street dogs) I encounter, I come to realize that it is about how I reacte to other people and animals. It shows who I really am.
There are no suicides among  stray dogs.
When you have love for yourselves and for all, no one will be able to destroy you. We stray dogs give each other respect, and respect where we are in our own development.
We see you as lovable people. Your attitude to us animals shows where you are on life’s path. When you stop receiving lessons you will be hard-hearted and dare no longer to love anymore. You become judgmental people. An aggressive dog has not been badly treated by life in itself, but by man within that life. An aggressive street dog also knows that it is difficult to survive with aggression, and walks away to be alone and heal itself. While an aggressive man is not only attacking himself, but the entire Universe, the Earth, man and Animals.
Love the Universe with all your heart, mind, and strength. Then you can love your neighbor as yourself. We all come from the same source.

That’s Amore!
