Music of the Moment: Reflecting Light, Sam Phillips
Nature is always flowing, changing, and embracing itself, learning from the last second and moving forward to the next.
Dear Humans, we all need to catch up with the raindrops and waterfalls…
and embrace who you are today.
If you are going grey, show grey.
Be a moon goddess or moon god. Age naturally, lovingly, and gracefully at every age. Get back to nature, appreciate all the colours, and unwind from the world’s specific and too often toxic views on beauty. Let your natural beauty show, lessen the pain, prevent illness, and reduce the endless repetition of taught routines that never really let you feel like you measure up to the current ideal beauty standards. Look back at beauty trends…it is ridiculous and very unhealthy. Every baby is beautiful and grows and changes like a tree or a flower. Isn’t it extraordinary when we see an especially unique plant? Why not have the same attitude and mindset for human beauty?
I grew up in a hair salon, and was taught to ‘be’ and look a certain way. I felt constantly harassed about it, thus creating a ‘hopeless’ self image that I ignored because I couldn’t care that much about something that was not attainable, especially because I did not agree with it. I like nature, trees, and being myself. I never listen to bullies, but harassment of any kind does somehow separate you from yourself in ways. I have had white silvery grey hair since I was young, due to trauma and shock from extreme illnesses. I was taught to hide this hair with hair colour. Hair colour, no matter what kind, is toxic and creates illness…short & long term. There are carcinogens in hair colour formulas. The smell alone is a sign it is unhealthy. It causes instant sensory reactions and migraines. When free of these teachings, (and I do deeply regret not protesting from the start), I let it grow out, and have adjusted to the beautiful colours that are my hair now. After all that has been going on in my life, the unnecessary illness and limitations, I just feel happy to even have hair. There is so much preventable illness in the world, and so much unnecessary suffering, shame, and judgement about appearances. Is the world ready to get to know itself, under the surface?
With healthy organic minimal care, my hair is strong again and beautiful like moonlight. I do support and encourage all people to stop editing and hiding themselves. It is not in your best interest, and will not add real confidence or real happiness. Whole health means building a connected way of living that is helpful and not harmful. Choosing things in your life is important, and real awareness for what is truly positive energy needs to surface for all. At the very least, give children a choice with full information about toxicity and immediate and long-term effects. It has been good to see more people celebrating their grey in recent years. It is time for the world to show its true colours and love them all!
It is amazing when you have a child and realize…hey…I wasn’t so hideous! I am beautiful…like this precious angel I get to take care of each day. I have always respected and cared for myself, but I don’t want to ‘fit in’ with, what is to me, the world’s toxic mess. I never spent time focusing on ‘beauty’ as the world sees it because there is not one ‘perfect’ look. Illness can also open your heart to only focus on important things, like surviving. Make sure you don’t believe toxic criticism because everyone is beautiful, no matter what anyone says. Bullying needs to be completely done. It makes no sense and has so many long-term effects on a person’s life and choices. Don’t try to limit someone’s thoughts and life path because you are insecure. Heal yourself. If someone is bullying you, you need to get help.
If you choose to grow your natural hair colour out, no matter what shades, textures, and combinations it reveals itself to be, be patient with yourself, know you are a part of nature, and love all of you for you are beautiful just the way you are. A healthy trim is a good idea to start your process out with a healthy choice. Eat healthy foods, stretch, breathe, and get rest. Let go of negative thought patterns. It takes time for natural hair to grow out. Come up with a phrase if you feel impatient during the in-between phase. Positive affirmations work if you are sincere. Find nourishing products (organic, non-GMO, vegan, non-plastic), if you need anything at all, like coconut oil and a good sustainable wooden brush for your specific hair type. Be gentle, because hair is delicate. No matter how much hair you have, a healthy scalp is important. Massaging in some organic scalp oil can help stimulate hair health.
I believe in healthy, informed habits and routines. I try beyond my best to take good care of myself and my family. I self-educate, and we are always learning, adapting, and changing. Replacing unhealthy habits and choices with better ones is not scary or miserable. It is something to be embraced and adored. Take pleasure in caring for yourself. Explain to children why you use certain things and do special things so they understand ‘choices’. They need to make their own choices. The world needs to know what people are really like naturally, and stop shaming others into trying to appear as someone else. Be your authentic self.
This text is from one of my upcoming healthy books, and I hope it helps you to adore every strand of hair you have, no matter what colour it is. Adore every freckle, every smile line, and keep smiling! If your hair is curly, let your curls dance in the breeze. Spend your precious time with Nature, and by doing so, you can learn how to love yourself even more each day.
As an empath, it hurts so much to be in this world…to feel everyone fight and fuss. Why? Equality is needed. End judgements of all kinds, for every colour is beautiful. Let the world include everything that is in the world. End racism, end sexism, end pollution, end abuse, and end toxic energy. Stop the violence and prevent illness. Heal. What are you spending your time on? Rethink how you think. Shed toxic traditions and thoughts. Are you building something good, or redoing harmful routines? Enjoy the beauty all around and within us for there is so much of it!
Get to know your true self, and there you will find confidence, a positive body image and mindset. Inspire yourself to take the best care of you.
Shine your light for you are…too marvelous for words!
New beautiful books will release as soon as I can do so.
I include loving energy in every book, painting, and day.
Love, an old soul, Amor Milagre

At home, at Christmas Rose Cottage, I love richly romantic art, empowering for all genders, depicting gentle, natural scenes to encourage self reflection and a very personal relationship with the higher Self, the inner and true self. Be it my own loving artwork or prints of passions from long ago, little higher selves can live around these positive images, choose their own, and always look within for whole health Love to feel their bright light of love shining out into the universe, forever glowing for their true hearts to be in their world with clear senses.
Change your artwork with the season if you like to infuse your days with cozy, natural inspiration. Wander a museum, art gallery, online art history research, or your pencil and paper. What kind of artwork imagery are you drawn to? Where do our connections come from? What, or who, we connect to from forever ago, yes it may be familiar, but we can still choose, now in this moment, is this helpful or harmful? What feelings does an image, or soul, invoke? Familiar doesn’t have to mean positive…or negative…we have a choice. Peace and love this day, holiday, and all days ahead. Design is powerful and so are all of our choices, which imagery is peaceful and calming for you? Surround yourself in what you Love, XOXO ~ Amor Milagre
I am an ambassador for positive change. I am here to unveil that Awareness and Sensitivity are Love! We are all born sensitive, but many lose their awareness of it. Illness is a way it comes through, and clouding the awareness of our natural empathy will only cause more illness and suffering. There is another way, dear human friends! We can all listen to our Higher-Inner Self. This is what it’s all about, connecting to our souls, and therefore connecting to everything and everyone that ever was, is, or will be. This is where peace is. Respect is there, too. This is Love. And…my Dear Ones, this is what we all are and need to be aware of. So please read my blog posts here, and my books because I need to help us all get back to being extremely aware of…everything. This is why I’m here, every time. It was always this way, and as I continue to explore my Akashic Records in Meditation (more about this coming up), it seems to always be this way. I am ‘The Teacher’, ‘The Advocate’, the humble sharer of information and messages from the timeless universe. My new books are coming up, as fast I can make them and, of course, new blog posts and collections are lovingly being made here daily.
In the meantime, listen to your children, they know what love is and understand the awareness. Let them teach you about Love and awareness. Their wonder of the world is not only because they are new to it, it’s because they are aware of it and know it very well. Teach them, of course, healthy humans ways, colours, numbers, words, but don’t forget that they are our teachers for the most important lessons for all lifetimes. It’s in their smiles, their laughs, their LIGHT! We are all born with the Light of Love. It transcends all human words and we have it always. Live in the Light!
*A place to begin is to think of sensitivity as a gift, because it truly is. Being sensitive helps guide you. It helps you trust your instincts and your Inner Voice. Have the greatest respect for children and everyone, especially highly sensitive people. It’s incredibly difficult for us to even just be here, and then even more so when we add the daily routines and unhealthy people, places, tasks, and conversations. Sensitive people are amazing at solving issues that are vitally important to solve. If we are allowed a world that feels safe and healthy, our health will improve, and our other gifts can be positively appreciated in making wondrous and helpful systems, ideas, and gifts for all. Everyone wants to feel good, so let’s allow sensitive people to be allowed that simple right.
What can we all do in our own circles, routines, and powers to make positive changes for sensitive people and all to feel their senses relax and focus more easily on the day’s goals and pleasures? Think about all the things that affect your body, emotions, abilities, etc. Think of lighting, sound, vibration, crowds, electricity, chemicals, air, routines, basic needs, voices, attitudes, volume, scents, air pressure, and everything that could feel uncomfortable, painful, or dangerous. When speaking to sensitive people, what kind of words do you use, what tone of voice? Do you know they are sensitive? Are you aware? Now think of these things around you as if they were intensified to an unbearable level that shakes and disturbs the delicate nervous system and all that holds your body together. Now you might be thinking of how a sensitive person experiences the world. Could you focus and complete a task quickly if you felt massive pain just being in an unhealthy setting?
For sensitive children, and parents of sensitive children, finding ways to communicate well is vital. Children with speech challenges need to feel their voice is important, valued, and heard. They need basic things and need to be able to ask for them each moment. It’s incredibly frustrating to be unheard and in great need. It’s a pain no one should experience. Researching health conditions, ways of healing from trauma, and different ways of communicating is important to help those who live a more unusual life than others. Their life has more layers because of the difference, and they have more gifts and strength because of it. They very much need bridges of loving communications and a safe world to live in. These very special people have so much grace and goodness to share with the world. In sharing, they are able to feeling loving and contribute joy into the universe. Their confidence will build and they will do many more great and healthy things for all people, including more sensitive people in need of help and love.
There is much to share and learn about how sensitive people feel in certain situations, places, and emotional environments. There is also much for sensitive people to learn to keep their energy and stay healthy in a world that is not only unaware of their experiences, but too often condemns them and worsens their already difficult experiences. Be kind and ask questions with loving communication. Listening is learning. Asking nicely, with an open heart, is being loving and sensitive back. Have you heard anyone speak of the word ‘Sensitive’ as an analogy for ‘Love’? Now you have because it is! Being sensitive to others is being loving towards others. Love is not something reserved for a few people in your life. This Universal Love is for all people, things, plants, animals, and places. It is for the air we breathe, the water we drink, and all everywhere. Patience is needed when learning, so be patient, as learning about a Sensitive World is going to take imagination, until you understand. It may sound extreme because, for us, it is. The pain is so extreme and often sudden, a non-aware person might not feel it right away, but it would still affect them right away, only realizing it in another form later on.
Much of which we feel is chronic, meaning the world is not changing its’ levels of pollution, and we have to endure it, sort it, combat it, heal it, and rebuild from it every day. Think of it as if your whole world, your house, your job, your health, everything crashed every day, and you have to rebuild it all. When ill, more levels of sensitivity can more easily layer on top of the already heightened ones. Senses that were extremely aware were overstimulated too much, caused injury, or were abused can cause such conditions where the senses are blasted out. For example, sound can be incredibly much louder (hyperacusis) which can cause partial deafness when there is no break from the ‘deafening’ wall of sound, the brain and eyes have challenging aura or blindness, walking can be too painful, or chemicals can affect skin much more quickly or more extremely. Sensitive people are often misunderstood as their painful suffering can be mistaken for unrelated things in a quick moment, glanced at by an unaware person. Inflicting sensitive people with experiences that are painful for them is abuse. Become aware of your affect on people, and treat everyone uniquely. There is no blanket way to treat everyone, expecting the same reaction. Treat everyone with love, patience, and empathy, including your Self.
If you are sensitive, loving the Self, even if others do not, is very important. Listen to you Self and do what you need to do to be healthy in peaceful ways. When the world is painful for sensitive people, we often accrue illness that layers on new and very dangerous illnesses. It makes us even more sensitive, which is still not a weakness, though it might look like it, but it is a great strength because it takes energy that we constantly have to keep rebuilding. We have to keep adapting and become stronger because of the unhealthy things in the world. It’s beyond exhausting, which is one of the illnesses -chronic exhaustion.
Hopefully, after reading this, you’ll never use the word ‘sensitive’ as an insult, and if you hear someone doing so, you can now educate them and say: “Sensitivity is a Strength!” If you meet someone that says they are sensitive, you can say with a warm empathic smile, “That is so wonderful! If there is anything you think we can do differently to help everyone’s senses keep their energy, please let me know.”
Everyone is sensitive about something, on different levels of awareness, and has various combinations of sensitivity. We can come back to an understanding by raising awareness, having conversations, and remembering that all of us are sensitive people who need help with something. Why not help everyone by making acceptance and inventive flexibility a standard way of making positive changes? Things change all the time, and we adapt, so let’s change things for the better, to improve health for all with natural easy ways, such as fresh air and day light, a less cluttered, loud world. See how easily the senses come back down to a healthy rhythm to balance the body and reduce illness. This, in turn, allows us to solve issues and be more mindfully productive, making sustainable choices in all we do!
Everything is simple, but hardly anyone sees it like that. All the planes merge in one space, but not many are aware. More helpful tips for unlayering into awareness are coming up! Remember, awareness is freedom! It is understanding. It is Love!
My company collections, especially the bookshop and blog posts, raise awareness for Love and Gentleness so that all kinds of sensitive people, (which includes all children), can live in this world and feel safe, peaceful, and healthy. If we can change harmful, negative words, emotions, attitudes, and environments to be healthy ones for sensitive people, our gifts can shine and make massively positive connections and solutions for all. We all live in the same world, but many of us highly sensitive, highly aware people are suffering health-wise, socially, in the work place, and just everywhere from noisy, bright restaurants to our own homes polluted by others’ stress, overwhelming environmental settings, and pollution of all kinds. True sustainability is being mindful, respectful, and loving of people and places. In our homeschool classes here, we teach and learn about all kinds of ways people live. It’s not only about what people eat, wear, and the languages they speak. There is a universal language that all people share across all countries and time. It is awareness. It is Love!
Children’s classrooms and library book reading sessions are great places to have a peaceful place that is soft for the senses. Children may sometimes like to make sounds, but they surely do not like being surrounded by loud sounds. They need to feel safe, and their body needs to be at rest, and not in distress. Fresh air is beneficial to all, not just fresh air systems, but windows opened to let in natural air prevents illness. Fresh air gives energy that can be used to learn wonderful things! I’ll be posting more on this blog about what we all can do to be more aware and sensitive.
Amor Milagre signifies Miracle Love. There is a universal light that shines when real love ignites infinitely. Real love is always miraculous. “Live in the Light! Fill yourself up with love from within, and let it flow into everything you do! Surround yourself with Love!” ~Amor Milagre

This is especially exciting when someone else has bought this surprise for you. A little box on your doorstep! What is inside? A gift for me!
Another way to keep your order’s packaging in good shape for reuse is to instruct your mail carrier, (we use USPS for all orders), to deliver your packages to a specific spot.
