Hästens SkyddsÄngel visade mig vägen

”Vem är det som är ansvarig för den gula hästen som står på baksidan?”, ropade jag till människorna som stod ute på stallplanet. Barnen och jag befann oss åter igen nere i södra Italien för att arbeta med de hemlösa hundarna.

Vi hälsade på ridskolan som vi känt till sedan vi bodde där nere 2008. Plötsligt strömmande en slags stöt av sorg emot mig. Det kändes som att någon drog mig till där känslan befann sig. Jag gick runt stallbyggnaden och såg att det fanns flera hästboxar där. Ett svagt vibrerande ljus lyste vid en liten öppning. ”Hallå, är du ok?”, viskade jag. Den stora gula hästen vände sig om. Han grät! En stark trötthet strålade mot mig.
”Jag lovar att hjälpa dig!”

Genast var det som om jag stod utanför mig själv och såg på medan ljuset agerade. Ut ur min mun flög orden; ”Jag köper hästen!”

Mina barn tjoade glatt, men jag insåg att jag inte kunde få in hästen i bilens baksäte. Vad hade jag gjort? Och barnens pappa hade sagt åt mig innan vi lämnade hemmet att jag inte fick komma hem med flera hundar; ”Vi har redan tio stycken!”. Jag drog upp min telefon och ringde till vänner. Transportfirman, sponsorer och stallplats blev ordnat på tio minuter. Det var magiskt.

Oregon är en 26 år gammal ridskolehäst som både barn och vuxna älskade att rida runt på för han var så snäll. Marina som tar hand om ridskolan han bodde på blev först lite tveksam. Inte över att Oregon fick komma till mig, utan för den långa resan vi stod inför och kylan som var uppe i Tyskland. Jag förstod att det var svårt för Oregon att säga adjö till en själ som befunnit sig där i flera år. Jag berättade för honom om hur hans nya liv skulle se ut, med gräs, utomhushagar, skogsområde och veterinärteamet som väntade på att ge honom den bästa behandling med värdighet.

Under hela resan upp till Tyskland kommunicerade jag med Oregon. Om hur hans kropp kändes, vad ville han? Varje gång pulserade ett sken runt omkring honom.

Många av mina vänner blev engagerade i Oregon. Den amerikanska kyrkan bad för honom i sin församling. Han blev en kärlekssymbol.

Nu befinner han sig i södra Tyskland på vårt nyöppnade seniorhem för hästar. Han lyssnar till namnet Miracle och gnäggar svagt god morgon när jag kommer. Fortfarande pulserar det ett ljus omkring honom men nu utan tårar. En dag kände jag hur det vibrerade i min jacka. Jag tog upp telefonen.
“Mia, vi har två seniorhästar till om du vill?” hörde jag Marina säga.
”Gör dem klara, vi kommer igen!”

De själsliga blåmärkena är större på insidan än utsidan, men ingen ser märkena på insidan. Djur bär ofta på dubbel smärta då de både får hårda tillrättaviselser och smärtsamma ord. Det skadar dem emotionellt. De har samma själ som er och är lika stora verktyg till denna planet som ni befinner er på. Men glädjen att se hur ni vågar stå upp för djuren och säga nej får vibrationerna på jorden att vibrera till en högre kärlek och sinnesro. Det pulserande ljuset varar då för evigt.

 

Tips på hur du själv kan göra i en likande situation:
1. Lita alltid på din magkänsla och agera snabbt innan tvivlet tar över din känsla.

2. Agera! Din målmedvetenhet smittar av sig. Det finns många som vill hjälpa men vet inte hur och var de ska börja.

3. Ta kontakt med olika människor för råd och hjälp.

4. Vänlighet och respekt. Alla älskar vi på olika sätt och med att visa andra människor en annorlunda vänlighet kan vi inspirera varandra. Fördöm inte någon, även om du tycker eller känner annorlunda. En aggressivitet kan förstöra för andra djur.

5. Kanske vill några personer försätta tvivel inom dig. Ta deras tvivel och skriv ned dem och svara. Bli inte irriterad. Du behöver inte försvara din passion men av andras tvivel kan du bli bättre i ditt arbete.

6. Se de som tvivlar som ”dina elever”. De finns för att att inspirera dig, inte tillrättavisa. Försök inte att förändra dem med ord utan med ditt agerande.

That’s Amore!

The Girl’s Past Helped her Become an Animal Lawyer

Outside my door stood a very thin girl in her too big t-shirt. By her side sat a messy dog.

The girl could not be more than seven years old that first day. When the social workers came to pick her up, she refused to accompany the assistant without her dog. One of the social workers was a big animal lover who had heard me tell how important animals can be for the humans healing.

The girl was interrogated while her dog, Duncan, laid next by her chair. She stretched and gently petted him over his coat. “He is my best friend. When my mother and stepfather argued, me and Duncan always crawled under the bed together. ”

Later I met them both, but the main character for me was Duncan.

He was calm and did not leave her side.

Bottles thrown, furniture being thrown around, punches, loud voices, followed by a spooky silence. Several times Duncan went to protect the girl. The dog even bit the man, but out of protection.

The social worker later confirmed that the girl’s stepfather had tried to get rid of the dog.

Children who come from a violent family can usually heal faster with animal therapy. The healing ability from the animals affects us humans strongly.

Over the years the girl and I have been in touch with each other and especially after the difficult time when Duncan died. Duncan fought against death to continue to protect, though his master was safe and away in school. He did not want to leave her.

We were many who were afraid of what the grief and sorrow would do to her.

But life often surprises us, I thought. You are many times fooled by your own assumptions, in advance of concrete actions of others.

Of course, she mourned. But after a while she started studying to become an animal lawyer. Her dream was to fight for animals that were not allowed to accompany the children in their new foster home. She spoke of her vision as “Duncan’s Law Firm”

She ends in the letter to me:

The way back is a lifelong path but definitely not impossible. It is a healing process on a long journey. We often wonder when we will come to the healing destination. But the wounds are also a way to learn to live, and together with Duncan I became stronger than ever.

In Spite of Life Threatening Experiences, Still She Wags Her Tail

I immediately saw her.  With her big black eyes she sat in a small cage looking curious at me. It felt like she chose me.
I asked the American Animal Organization to adopt the little cute dog Shiloh. They told me that Shiloh’s mother and siblings had  previous week been gassed to death by the state’s dog patrol.

The veterinarian found out that Shiloh had a kennel cough and had to sit isolated for a while. Back home she quickly grew into my family, along with three other dogs.

We moved from the US to new adventures in southern Italy.
The dogs took the long trip better than us nervous dog owners.

One evening, we walked with Shiloh along the wide Italian street. Suddenly a car arrived at high speed and drove over her!! Severely injured, she was taken to the emergency room.
Nobody thought she would survive.

I prayed day and night for her.

“She’s a miracle dog,” the veterinarians told me when I finally brought her home.

The following year, Shiloh got serious problems with her kidneys. She peed blood.

I was told about a great man, Michael, who could cure animals but who had no veterinary license. Michael was also a good homeopath. No other veterinarian had previously been able to cure Shiloh’s kidney problems.
Instead, they thought we should euthanize her.

Michael examined her and asked several questions. Suddenly, he took hold of Shiloh’s side and with his palm he hit her kidneys.
Shiloh shouted out.

I thought he was crazy!
We left, and with us we got some medicine ampoules.

A couple of weeks later she was healthy!

I told our veterinarian.
“She is a miracle dog,” he said again.

Once again it was time to move to new adventures and this time to southern Germany. Again, Shiloh moved with us but this time with 16 other happy dogs.

Today she is 14 years old. A beautiful limping  greymuzzle Senior, but still the same positive attitued as the first time I saw her there in the small cage.

She’s really a miracle dog.

I believe, we have a lot to learn from the animals.
We are what we think. Never give up!

That’s Amore!

The Animal’s Messages comes to you During the Night

My column for the Swedish Magazine Nara translated into English. Enjoy our important messages from the Other side.      www.tidningennara.se

Suddenly, I woke up by a voice that whispered, Mia! Mia!

Who was that which called for my attention?

I looked out through the window and noticed that the sun was on its way up.

When you are in absolute silence, the messages from the animals can come directly to your heart and mind!

With fast steps I hurried down to the beach, it was something strong that drew me down there. At the beach, there were all the dogs that had been by my side during my lifetime but had left to return to the Other side.

Even different kind of animals that had been found by my side, when growing up. They sat together, looking out over the sea towards the beautiful sunrise.

The Sunrise and Sunset are the two most powerful moments. The animals have a stronger contact with the other side and even our inner soul. We can be many souls together, but the vibrations are the same.

When we are together with humans, we can lower your frequency to our vibration, to a total relaxed level. Then you can communicate with everything in the world, and also with the Other side.

Every night I stand by your bed, I am always following your journey.

During the night, you are more accessible to communicate with.

Why do we not remember you when we wake up?

Your sorrow is already great and when you remember, your sorrow and desire will become greater. We try to heal you during the night, to make you dare to let go of your sorrows and to rejoice with our memories.

We do not have the same karma law as you people because within us we already have all the knowledge that’s needed to achieve inner peace. It is your Karma which you’re practicing on us. You get great opportunities to practice compassionate love and respect with us. Do not close that opportunity when we say goodbye to you, however, keep the same vibration to all those you meet in life. The world needs that love now more than ever.

That’s Amore!

 

 

Homeless but not Heartless

During my trips and volunteer work, my organization has always had very special projects that lays very close to my heart.

If any homeless people need help with their four-legged friends health, we help.

Same are we doing for homeless animals, strays. We know were they are located and we look after them with food or, medicine.

I feel so grateful, honestly, when I meet these incredible people that for some reason live on the street. Their stories!

They become happy when you see them, and when we care about their best friend(s). A four legged friend that truly stays by their side until death part them.

I check the dogs mentallity, and never (yet) have I met a scared or viscous dog (I founded my organization 1999)

We dont give money, we treat on the place. There are most of the time a “soup kithchen” for the people, and those I went to, their dog could also join them.

Yes, there will always be bad people towards their dogs, however, I meet many “wealthy” people that are bad to their animals.

There will always be “bad” humans, but that wont make me stop helping kind hearts which  need a helping hand.

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. ❤
