New Loving Novel Series, A Gentle Life Book Collection

Amor Milagre New Loving Novel Series! peaceful 2020 Ethical Organic Gift Shop fiction books amormilagre.com

Last night, I finished the fourth loving novel for my new series.  I want to live in these books!  They are so sweet and fun.  I hope the universe is inspired to laugh along and to bring the words to life in their daily rounds and holiday celebrations.  I strive to create this world for us, and I let it spill out of my pockets wherever we go.  Return to view the release for this New Book Collection.  Happy Snowy Days of Musing!  I wish you a peaceful holiday!

Amor Milagre New Loving Novel Series! 2020 Ethical Organic Gift Shop fiction books amormilagre.com

There is something to finding the right fit for a journal.  The line spacing, ample area for your hand to rest as you write, the paper texture.  Does it feel good?  It is steady to allow quick flashes of imagery to glide and dance swiftly before overlapped with new scenes and conversations?  Will the spine look lovely on a bookshelf when the pages are filled and happy?  I really enjoy journals and sketchbooks for all purposes.  My new Journal Series will be flying over to the shop in 2020!  Just like my handmade books, the paper is FSC Certified.  When buying journals, I look for FSC Certified paper, too.

I’m very pleased about 2020.  It’s taken a long time to get here, but it surely didn’t need to.  My focus was always there, working, but so much energy had to be used to survive an insensitive world.  It could have been used to develop wonderful ideas to help all and keep good health for this empath and our family.  My books show how easy it is for the world to boost good health and compassion for all, every moment.  And…how fun it is to live positive moments!  I think it will be a very productive and peaceful year to build a lovely new foundation for all the years to come.  When the dust settles on our New House Renovation, many new items will be shared!  What kind of positive projects are you planning for next year?  Design it for you!  I hope you enjoy your 2019 tales and 2020 ahead!

Coming Up:

The Bookshop:  A New Novel Series for All Ages!  This is the first post about this series.  In 2020, I’ll release at least four new novels to fall in Love with!  These are wonderful library additions and gifts for all ages to enjoy and revisit.  Older children-Adult will probably be the audience age group who enjoys this ‘something sweet’ the most, and little ones can enjoy a chapter at a time.  Everyone is included, and this series will keep growing every season.  It takes time to get to know someone, right? 🙂

The Crayon Club:  This week, I’ll share some fun winter children’s crafts to do anytime and for homeschool.

The Favourite Series: Cozy Children’s Audiobooks

Amor Milagre Favourite Cozy Children's Audiobooks List Ethical Organic Gift Shop Baby & Child Parent Family Homeschool Building Listening Skills amormilagre.com

Pull up a chair, get cozy, and listen to magic.  Wonderful for everyday and holiday visitors, too.  We listen and imagine along with these wonderfully narrated children’s audiobooks.  What are your favourite audiobooks?  Which narrators inspire giggles and smiles?  Audiobooks are very handy and beautiful to listen to while drawing and painting for Mamma & Child.  Ever since baby days, we’ve enjoyed these while playing, folding laundry, or resting.  Listening skills are immediately gained (during homeschool lessons), as well as the classic pleasure of storytelling.  If you have the book, follow along, learning to read, and match sounds with pictures.  Open the imagination and watch it grow splendid scenes and characters!  We enjoy sweet, natural stories with dear, funny characters.  Which tales touch your soul?

There is an art to this medium.  The timing is important.  The background music cannot be too loud.  The narrator needs to be sensitive to what they are reading.  What is the story is about?  Who are the characters?  These things are crucial for repeat plays.  Tone and feeling can come through in each breathe and expression.  A special treat is when the author reads their own book because you get an effortless sense of their intent and meaning of their original inspiration.  This audience is listening very closely, and we appreciate every word.  Thank you to the makers of these audiobooks!  They are a loving part of our daily life and childhood memories.

I’m very pleased to say, I have been finishing and beginning many new products to add to the A Gentle Life Collection.  Amor Milagre Audiobooks are coming up in 2020!

This Children’s Book Reading List is a part of my new ‘Favourite Series’ which I’ll add to each season.    Happy Listening!  XOXO ~Amor Milagre

We enjoy these Audiobooks & Narrators:

  • The Beatrix Potter Collection, Beatrix Potter, Narrated by Andrew Scott
  • Frog and Toad, All by Arnold Lobel
  • Brambly Hedge, Jill Barklem, Narrated by John Moffat
  • The Snowy Day, Ezra Jack Keats, Narrated by Jane Harvey
  • Little Bear, Else Holmelund Minarik, Narrated by Sigourney Weaver

Music of the Moment:  Mrs. Tiggywinkle’s Washing Song, The Beatrix Potter Collection, in the lovely and thoughtful voice of Andrew Scott.  I recognized his empathic voice from the loving and sensitive movie, This Beautiful Fantastic.  He expressed the character voices beautifully.  We love listening to his storytelling because he takes his time to really capture the essence of the story, mood, and attitude.  It really feels like you are there.  Thank you to this wonderful, versatile person and actor!

The Favourite Series: Ethical Brands for Beloved New Baby & Child, Holiday Gift Guide

Amor Milagre Favourite Ethical Brands Beloved Baby & Child, Holiday Gift Guide Dusty Rose Blush Pink Colour Mood Fashion Personal Style Handmade Gift Shop Children's Books 4 amormilagre.com

Our children are precious gifts!  They are miracles and absolute truth and beauty!  They deserve sensitive items for their sensitive everything.  For our family, we research and strive to find the healthiest brands before buying children’s apparel & items, from sweaters to spoons, and from books to bath soap.

There have not been many brands we love yet, or feel confident to share as responsible, ethical collections.  How could we really know?  Here are some that we have used for a few years, and whose company information seems to be nicely transparent.  What are your favourite ethical brands? 

We like certain items from these companies:

  • Jamie Kay:  The organic cotton items are now on our shopping list each growing season.  Beautifully designed and made, adorable to look at, cozy to wear in soft colours, easy to dress in, and timelessly photogenic for beautiful childhood photo albums and daily life.  This brand fits in with our Gentle Life of natural beauty and allowing the child’s essence to be the focus.  Easy shipping from New Zealand, and last for years +.
  • Babyganics:  Bath Time Soap
  • Under the Nile:  Lovey doll, wash cloths, toys, hats, bathrobes, swaddling blankets, sleep gowns, sunhat
  • DorDor & GorGor:  Infant onesies, tops, footed pants, scratch guard mittens, sleepsacks, sweaters
  • Natursutten:  Natural Rubber Pacifiers
  • Nook:  Nursing Pillow
  • Pure Baby:  Organic Cotton Coat
  • ErgoBaby:  Organic Carrier
  • Hape:  Wooden 1st Toys
  • HALO:  Sleepsacks
  • Niteo:  Overalls & Apparel
  • Naturapura: Tights & Apparel
  • Garden of Life:  mykind Organic Non-GMO Vitamins for Whole Family
  • Zoog Organic:  Bathrobe with Natural Dyes
  • Coyuchi:  Bedding
  • Seventh Generation:  Soaps, cleaners, laundry detergent, bath tissue, wipes, diapers
  • Caaocho:  Natural rubber bath toys
  • EcoLunchbox:  Stainless steel lunch tray dish
  • Green Sprouts:  Non-toxic Glass Cups/Bottles
  • Little Spruce Organics:  Various brands sell organic winter apparel and accessories.  We like choosing matching hats, mittens, coat, and scarves.  A great source for organic cloth diapers, inserts, and diaper covers.
  • Stonz:  Natural Rubber Boots
  • Handmade Organic Apparel & Accessories by Mindful Artists, Craftspeople, and Family Knitters (Local, and Online such as on Etsy)
  • Children’s Books that use FSC Certified Paper and non-toxic coatings, such as my Amor Milagre Bookshop.

Amor Milagre:  A Gentle Life Collections, including items and organic apparel we make here first for our family, and soon will add to the Shop.  New Organic Cotton Apparel Collections are Coming Up in 2020!  Shop my Growing Collections for Baby & Child!

There were more brands, but we sold or donated the items, and I lost track of the names in the busy first years of babyland.  I left out the others that we did try, but didn’t use, didn’t work well, or sadly are not now in business.  That pile was bigger than this list.  Everyone needs different things, but it took a while to find brands that are gentle for our sensitive skin, eyes, body, senses, budget, and lifestyle.  We often buy apparel a size bigger so the items are worn for a few years.  We buy quality items over cheap fast fashion, as they last longer, and in the end this saves money when well taken care of.  Well made items don’t have to be expensive, and with sales, very often cost less than the fast fashion/trendy items.  This post is not sponsored; I’m just sharing things we’ve found so far.  I hope this saves you some time.  I wish this list was given to me years ago.  It takes so much research to find healthy things we need.  As babies grow older, less items are needed, and fewer brands required, so finding our favourites becomes an annual pleasure to explore and way of expression.

Amor Milagre Favourite Ethical Brands Beloved Baby & Child, Holiday Gift Guide Dusty Rose Blush Pink Colour Mood Fashion Personal Style Handmade Gift Shop Children's Books 5 amormilagre.com

I made this list for you and the people in town who ask us where we get our clothes and other useful things.  We are drawn to well-made items using natural fibers that can be worn for many years, even during a big growth spurt.  We are old souls who connect with timeless, old fashioned, vintage styles in soft natural colours, using materials that are loving for highly sensitive skin and the senses.  Like the universe, the internet is a endless sea of connections and links, and I’m glad, Dear Ones, you found me here.  It’s not easy to shop in this time period in certain ways, but when we do find something we love, we wear it every day with confidence and appreciation for the maker.

Except for my own company, Amor Milagre, I don’t know for sure how ethical and responsible these other companies truly are in practice, so feel free to research on your own, ask the companies questions, and message us if you find any unhealthy issues!  🙂 I inspire all companies to become responsible, so shopping may be effortlessly enjoyable.

And, for clothing, a general size standard could be redone, right parents?  It’s difficult to shop for baby & child when the materials and sizes are not what you need.  Custom tailored apparel can be a very good practice again for big and small companies, so the items fit and last many childhoods and lifetimes.  I may add a ‘lightly worn’ section to my shop soon for the beautiful organic items outgrown by little ones.  We buy quality and wear lightly so these heirloom pieces would be ‘like new’ for new little ones. 

Tip:  Read laundry labels for how each garment wants to be cared for.  Items last longer when not worn out or shrunk in the wash.  Take your time, listen to music, and fold with Love.  Little Ones love to put their things away, learning and contributing something, too.  We have a curious pattern here of having to patch only one knee in all pants.  *Learning to sew and care for clothing is a great gift to teach to children.

This gift guide list is a part of my new ‘Favourite Series’ which I’ll add to each season.  Happy Growing, New Babies, & Gift-Giving!  XOXO ~Amor Milagre

Colour Mood: Dusty Rose

Amor Milagre: Ambassador for Positive Change, Let’s Redesign to Allow a Healthy World for Sensitive People & All

Amor Milagre Ambassador for Positive Change, Safe World for Sensitive People, About Me Be the Light Charcoal Portrait Woman Profile Candle Hair Eternal Flame Love Greeting Card Live in the Light! Winter 2019 Ethical Handmade Gift Shop amormilagre.com
‘Be the Light, Live in the Light’ Greeting Card Stationery Sets for this Artwork are Coming Soon!

Sensitivity is a Strength!  Sensitivity is Love!

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 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?Amor Milagre Christmas Angel Tree Roses About Me Live in the Light! Winter Holiday Decor 2019 Ethical Handmade Gift Shop amormilagre.com

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 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.

Amor Milagre Ambassador for Positive Change, Let’s Redesign to Allow a Healthy World for Sensitive People & All, lake love Ethical Handmade Gift Shop amormilagre.com

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.

Amor Milagre Ambassador for Positive Change, Let’s Redesign to Allow a Healthy World for Highly Sensitive People & All Ethical Handmade Gift Shop amormilagre.com

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, let’s us 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

Amor Milagre’s ‘A Gentle Life Collection’ may be helpful for everyone, especially for:  Empaths, Synesthetes, Highly Sensitive People (HSP), Highly Intuitive People, Earth Angels, Light Workers, INFJ’s and all personality types, All Children, and Nature-Lovers.

This very important, universal message is included in my A Gentle Life Book Collection.

The Favourite Series: Fun Winter Holiday Children’s Book Reading List, Gifts & Library

Amor Milagre The Favourite Series Fun Winter Holiday Children's Book Reading List 2019 Ethical Organic Gift Shop Handmade Art Baby & Child Parent Family amormilagre.com

As the first snow falls, reading books become even more of a sacred practice and pleasure.  We like to read books from the local library before we give them as gifts to ensure their values and dearness.  Here are a few fun ones to explore this holiday season!

This Children’s Book Reading List (View More Here) is a part of my new ‘Favourite Series’ which I’ll add to each season.  I can only recommend the books on this list in the means of imagination, and not always for how each book is made.  The only books on the lists that I know for sure are ethically made are my own handmade books.  All of my books feature the benefits of learning.  The books here are chosen by the young, and as a parent, I agree that these are helpful and beautiful.  This is the children’s list!  I won’t write our impressions, as it’s best to allow your first impression to be purely your own.  Many more children’s book reading lists are coming up!  Happy Reading! XOXO ~Amor Milagre

 

We connected dearly with these and read them many times over:

  • When Santa Was A Baby – Linda Bailey, Genevieve Godbout
  • Dream Animals – Emily Winfield Martin
  • The Animal Book, A Visual Encyclopedia of Life on Earth – David Burnie

Green to golden, crimson, plum.  My beloved Autumn has come.  Tangerine, apricot, chestnut.  Dusty hazy seeded sky…and what?  A walk under the trees.  Let’s speak in leaves.  A basket of deeply coloured wild berries, fresh bread, cucumber tomato balsamic salad, hot cacao, and a cozy plaid blanket unwinds your senses with a picnic in the country forest, a city park, your back garden, and anywhere you desire.  Pause and connect with Nature.  Feel the changes.  All throughout Autumn, picnics of small and grand scales are waiting.  Safely explore the beautiful light of arching rainbows and tree limbs above.  Hear the rustling of furred friends below, preparing for Winter’s cold snow.  What flavour combinations do you Love?  Olives and marmalade?  Anything goes!  Fresh from the garden, from shops, and handmade.  Let’s get outside where Fall memories won’t fade.  Happy Autumn picnics to you and your Dear Ones!  XOXO ~Amor Milagre

A Tomato that Tastes like a Tomato

Amor Milagre Heirloom Tomatoes Organic Garden Farm Summer Harvest 2019 Ethical Organic Gift Shop Handmade Gift Shop Art Baby & Child amormilagre.comTo grow a tomato that tastes like a tomato, the old ways are beautiful, flavourful, and healthy.  Let the bugs roam, let the sun shine, let the rain fall, and let plants be natural in Nature. 

We love to plant organic, non-GMO, heirloom tomato seeds, in a sunny spot each year, on a fresh layer of homemade organic plant compost, in our organic no-dig edible plant garden.  Clear other plants from the bottom layer for optimal air flow and remove lower leaves after they’ve grown strong and healthy.  (No sprays or chemicals.  No tools needed).  Enjoy the colours and taste of all kinds of lovely tomatoes!  Plant organic basil nearby for a delicious salad picnic in the garden.  Guiding the plants, watching the flowers and bees, and being a helper of Nature feels amazing.  We love to take a closer look and thank Mamma Nature for her beautiful designs, colours, textures, scents, sounds, and tastes.  We’re fascinated by her natural packaging, recycling, and life cycles.  We also save the tomato seeds for planting new plants and label with the date.

Heirloom tomatoes taste wonderful and have old origins.  The seeds were passed down from generations of gardeners.  They are heirlooms like a beautiful antique gift from your ancestors, but these gifts produce gorgeous food over and over again to sustain a healthy family of growers.

Remember to:  Support your local organic plant farmers and gardeners at local markets, restaurants, and shops.  Get your hands dirty.  It feels good to connect to the Earth and grow healthy food for yourself, Dear Ones, and your community.  Children love to grow and eat their own garden.  One handful of seeds grows an abundance of healthy food to be eaten that day and preserved for the year.  Grow flavours, colours, quality, and good health in your garden all year round.  Plants are best when eaten when in season, ripe, fresh, and kissed by the sun.  Happy Late Summer Foods!  Enjoy Nature: The Best Show on Earth!  XOXO ~Amor Milagre

The Favourite Series: Library Themed Children’s Book Reading List

Amor Milagre Library Themed Children's Book Reading List September 2019 For the Love of Learning Favourite Series Ethical Organic Gift Shop Handmade Gift Shop Art Baby & Child amormilagre.com

Libraries are beautiful places to visit and explore!  Their magic is elevated up to the stars when you meet a kind librarian who knows the sense of each book spine, cover, and ribbon bookmark.  All the ideas of those before us inspire our minds to open to new clouds of thought, sensed by us long ago and once again.  What revelations will you have today?  A library can be a community’s heart.  It’s that time of year when many children go back to school.  For us, as year-round homeschoolers, it’s another season to learn wonderful, dear stories.  Here are a few we love. 

One of my upcoming books includes a wonderful story of lovely librarians.  All of my books include families who love to learn.  There is power in understanding and empathy.  Live in the Light!

This Children’s Book Reading List (View More Here) is a part of my new ‘Favourite Series’ which I’ll add to each season.  I can only recommend the books on this list in the means of imagination, and not always for how each book is made.  The only books on this list that I know for sure are ethically made are my own handmade books.  All of my books feature the benefits of learning.  The books here are chosen by the young, and as a parent, I agree that these are helpful and beautiful.  This is the children’s list!  I won’t write our impressions, as it’s best to allow your first impression to be purely your own.  Many more children’s book reading lists are coming up!  Happy Reading & Library Explorations! xoxo ~Amor Milagre

There is No Excuse for Child Abuse or Abuse of Anyone

Amor Milagre No Excuse for Child Abuse A Gentle Life Book Collection all ages & genders Ethical Handmade Gift Shop Art Organic Baby & Child amormilagre.comWe are all babies…just of different ages.  There is no excuse for child abuse, and since we are all children, there is no excuse for abuse of anyone, no matter their age.  If you were abused, you cannot continue the damage on your children, Self, or others.  You must heal yourself, and know yourself, and not put yourself in situations where you could harm someone.  Seek help and help yourself.  Examine your thoughts.  It takes you to choose to unlearn the negatives and learn what you want to know:  Love.  Heal with Love.  Love is already and always within you.  Feel you are Love, for you are whole.

Abuse is a pollution that spreads quickly and roots deeply.  Abuse is not OK, and there is no excuse.  Beware of false apologies/promises.  Abuse takes many shapes, and the boundaries are easily crossed once one kind of abuse has been acted upon.  Violence makes more violence, and this solves nothing.  Problems can be resolved with calm, loving communication.  Love can change our world from ‘violent’ to ‘peaceful’.  We must change the chain reactions we spread to be positive ones, for everywhere we go we take our energy.  Let our energy be healthy and positive to inspire others to feel loved and loving inwards and outwards.  Dissolve fear and don’t project your fears on others, especially not in the form of abuse, and not on children.

Everyone deserves respect and safety.  Healing may take time, but if you change your attitude to being loving and patient with yourself, you’ll learn how to be loving and patient with others.  No one can heal abusive people for them, but abusive people can heal themselves (away from those they hurt).  It is their responsibility to heal themselves and replace harmfulness with helpfulness.  Protect people who are being harmed in any way.

If one person is harmed, it negatively affects the history of All in the Universe.  Even one negative thought ripples out and hurts everyone.  There is more to this world than people sense.  We all need to move in the direction of Love, all the time, and then everyone will be what they need.

If someone harms you, do not believe their negative words about you.  You are a beautiful soul and loved by the Universe.  We each have our own power to think about ourselves how we like.  Don’t harm yourself or others because others harm you.  Pain may be familiar, but it’s not healthy or comforting.  Knowing what pain is like is not your fault, but you can overcome it, and choose good health for yourself in everything you do and think.  Love is the way to heal from pain.  Find positive ways to replace harmful habits with healthy ones.  Your thoughts and body are sacred for you to care for.  We have a choice to believe we are loved and wonderful, no matter who is around us.  If others have a problem, it is their problem to resolve on their own (away from those they were hurting), and the people being hurt are not the source.  People have no right to lash out at others because they are hurting.  Parents need to take healthy, loving care of their children with endless patience.  Children need to know that their world is safe and their bodies and beings are respected.  Everything is new for them in this life.  Let’s allow their worlds to be beautiful, healthy, and loving.  Their world is theirs to explore, and they need healthy guides for learning positive ways to care for themselves.

People of all ages need to feel free to ask for help, without the fear of something equally harmful or worse happening to them in the process.  Let the world change from spending money on violence to designing a reliable world-wide system for abuse survivors to be truly helped whenever needed.  This system can educate all to prevent abuse, too.  It can be added into every annual school curriculum as a whole class, for all genders.  A class with no tests, other than Life.  A class to raise awareness about abuse and bullies, self care, how to prevent and protect, how to heal, how to seek help, how to help others, and how to not abuse others or the Self.  Abuse happens everywhere, every day.  Most people don’t ask for help.  Who can they ask?  Who can they trust?  Children are mostly home, so how can anyone know to help?  Do they know what ‘abuse’ is?  Just because ‘it’s the way it is” and the life they know doesn’t mean it’s healthy or the way life could be.  Where is a system that truly helps?  Awareness is key.  Help people when you see they need it.  How could we know where to ask for help?  Of all the things our world needs, this helpful system would be extremely beneficial to the whole-health of all.  Reporting abuse is very important because it is so common and destructive.  With the current systems, when a survivor bravely reports abuse, what really happens?  Do they get the help they need?  Reporting abuse is important to make an awareness of how common this issue is, to protect individuals and future survivors, and to help ourselves stand up to violence in peaceful ways.  What could be truly helpful for them?  Who is there to listen and teach them about how wonderful they are?  The world needs patience and Love to help.  The world needs to refocus funds and jobs to be in the direction of helping because there are so many people in need of help.

We can choose goodness for ourselves, starting with our thoughts.  Thoughts turn into actions, so be mindful to layer Love into all of your thoughts.  You deserve to feel that you are Love.  Your soul, mind, body, heart, and energy are pure Love.  Be Love!  Be purely you!  Live in the Light!

Children are everything good!  Each person is unique and has their own needs, so be patient and change your perspective to help them if you don’t see solutions to your questions.  They look to you for help.  Do not harm children in any way.  This universal message is important to remember always in everything we do and say.  No one has the right to harm.  Everyone can live peacefully and respectfully in Love for All.

Remember:  Is this helpful or harmful?  Am I helping or harming?  Be helpful for yourself, everyone, and everything.  Positivity is powerful and healing.

I send healing Love out to All.  xoxo ~Amor Milagre

10 Things I’ve Loved Since Childhood, The Imagination of the Senses

Amor Milagre 10 Things I've Loved Since Childhood, The Imagination of the Senses 2019 Ethical Handmade Gift Shop Art Apparel Organic Vegan Baby & Child childhood memories amormilagre.com

Whether you’re a parent or a child at heart, remembering your favourite childhood memories is beneficial for a happy, healthy lifestyle at any age.  How did it feel to fly down the street on your bicycle, wind on your face, and freedom in your heart?  Here are just 10 things I’ve Loved since childhood.  No matter what else was going on, Nature was my reverie for funny ideas and soothing rhythms.  Speaking to your Inner Self and Inner Child helps you have fun every day.  This practice also helps you to teach your children how to have good, simple fun, anywhere at any time.  What do you like to do in your imagination of the senses?  Happy Spring!

  1.  Swinging with my hair down in the breeze.
  2. Walking up a hill, climbing a tree, and watching the sunset’s beautiful colours each night.
  3. Carving pumpkins and trick-or-treating on Halloween.
  4. Swimming in the ocean in light rain.
  5. Drawing pictures of anything.
  6. Running barefoot in the grass when it’s lightly raining in the summer.
  7. Making up stories and silly games outside in Nature with a friend from down the street.
  8. Dancing with the fireflies in the magical summer evenings.
  9. Designing my ideal town of kindness with chalk on the driveway, and then wheeling around on the tiny roads.
  10. Eating watermelon and tomatoes in the garden.

Of course there are some more, but these were sitting in my eyes.  Everything I Loved then, still lives in my mind now, so it’s easy to have innocent, real fun because I’ve been practicing it since then.  Remember, there is no age that you can reach that says you’re not allowed to laugh and play.  So laugh, so play, have a lovely time today!  XOXO ~Amor Milagre
