I love dancing, playing piano and guitar, and singing…and after you haven’t had them near in ages, it’s all the more beautiful. Even without the floor and keys, even without a voice, the mind can play any time or place. Use the air. Imagine it. Nothing planned, no steps or sheets to follow, just play. Hear the notes? Feel the movement? Ramble along, wander, get lost in the senses of them entangling together…
Now that we have finished our new kitchen, I continue my evenings of dancing there, with a farmhouse sink ledge for a barre, moving towards the soft notes and crickets.
Today, I’m introducing Hoppy’s New Paperback Option, which is ethically and responsibly Made in the USA. Many more paperbacks will join the hardbacks and audiobooks in my Book Collection each season.
Hoppy Bunny gently teaches little readers how to use alphabet letters to invent nursery games and tell loving, kind stories with friends. Enjoy these sweet watercolour illustrations for a cozy feeling every time you snuggle up to read. Each letter of the alphabet is highlighted in a custom colour for that page.
A classic tale of the beloved toy friends in our Rose Cottage nursery makes for a favourite bedtime comfort. One of the infinite lovely things about children is the way they leave hilarious and darling scenes and surprises around the home. These pages capture a few of those precious moments when I happened upon a nursery story unfolding.
Hoppy Bunny practices mindfulness and shows how to take respectful care of all you have and love. This book was designed for all children, and it is especially inspiring for homeschool students who can use their surroundings and imagination to invent a story land of peaceful messages. Positive self-care practices are included as a loving guide to lead the self on a healthy path for a beautiful life.
A Gentle Life Book Collection: Peaceful, beautiful, healthy inspiration for a Gentle Life. Give the gift of Love & Peace by being Purely You.

Hoppy Bunny Tales #2 is coming up next! Love, ~ Amor Milagre
A cooler week reminds me of my favourites: cosy sweaters, blankets, sitting with the garden, and the little romantic things we love. Here are three ideas to try:
Lasting Impression: When we were first dating, I gave my husband a little card with a unique pink lipstick kiss on it as a valentine. He has kept the card in his wallet ever since…it’s been about a decade. (My Kiss stationery is based on that valentine.)
Kind Gestures: Last night, I looked out of the window and saw my husband with a handful of weeds on his way to the compost area of the garden. Clearing a pathway, doing laundry or dishes, and little helpful things are very sweet gestures that show you care. Giving your beloved the gift of some down time is wonderful!
Little Offerings: Hugs, massages, gentle touches, a delicious lunch, a cup of favourite tea, and loving words are simple, yet impactful, ways to say ‘I adore you.’ We also write out love notes on the bottom of market shopping lists, on corners of the To Do chalkboard, and on my Ethereal Romance Notecards. It is lovely to find an ‘I love you’ at the breakfast table.
Romantic, cosy choices for our home are fun to design. This is a week of new floors and wall painting for two living spaces and the last hook ups for the new kitchen. It will be wallpaper time soon!
Coming in Autumn: Rose Cottage Renovation Home & Garden Design Reveals
The Mini Watercolour Paintings are trickling into the shop. Snap yours up today!
We suffer through more sleepless nights…all throughout the summer, especially around the dreaded day, the Fourth of July. Something akin to the inescapable, unnecessary sounds and sensation of war, cannons and gun shots boom and shake our house for hours every night and without warning or an end. Could it even be so, in this uncertain time? This simulation of a bombing needs to be banned. Anyone who has survived any kind of war needs calm healing, not more sense experiences of threats and danger. Fireworks are highly insensitive and painful on many fronts.
There are more than ten thousand injuries caused by fireworks each year in the US. Some people even die. Such was the case at last night’s firework show in Michigan. Property damage occurs as well. Increased painful hearing issues, migraines, buzzing nerves, PTSD, and no sleep (which causes more illnesses) are our common effects from fireworks, and that is from inside our home with the windows closed. Babies and children are crying in their beds, and their routines are disturbed instantly and for the long-term. Pollution negatively shapes a baby’s entire lifetime. Sleep-deprived parents, with very early work times, are endlessly working more over time to calm the alarmed little ones while writing emails to town to ban fireworks. The town never answers us. They think it is their American right to pollute everyone whenever and however they like, no matter the effects. Spin-off sound/vibration pollution from random neighbours goes on until early morning with no signs of stopping, despite the curfew. This, as well as the horrible local gun shots, sound off all year. Why is this allowed? Why was this adopted? Who can change it? Who will? When? We needed it to never happen. Loud, intense sounds and vibration trigger PTSD, deepen a sense of unsafe conditions, cause illness, prolong insomnia, and prevent healing. As a young child, I was put on a river boat at night and had to endure being right under the fireworks for a long period of time. They thought it was a luxury, but it was abuse. This annual crippling nightmare caused permanent hearing conditions and chronic illness. All of this is preventable pollution. Stop the suffering. Stop endangering whole cities. Repay our sleep deficit.
To truly celebrate freedom means giving everyone the freedom of quiet peace to sleep and to do as they need, without harming others. This annual toxic terror needs to stop. It allows people who already behave disrespectfully to feel free to worsen and cause more havoc. Give us freedom from pollution instead. End war and remove symbols of glorifying war. Free us from your violent mistakes. Fireworks are also a terrible fire and safety risk, especially during these hot months when wildfires rage and pollute everywhere. Air pollution is already at a dangerous high. We don’t need more smoke.
Prevent illness and pain. Fireworks are cruel to highly sensitive people, all people (whether they are aware or not), and anyone with hyperacusis, migraines, autism, empathic senses, synesthesia, any illness, sleep issues, and hearing or nervous system issues. Everyone deserves quiet for sleep and personal sense of safety.
STOP! Just flat out STOP. Stop assuming people love fireworks. We don’t. Pollution is a hate crime against sensitive people, all people, and the Earth. Positive change is needed. There are already too many layers of pollution that need to be dismantled and discontinued. Fireworks need to be extinct. If you don’t think fireworks are loud, you may be deaf as many people unknowingly are. The vibration does affect you negatively whether you notice or not. The make and use of fireworks was never a good idea, and they are not even American. Research how to safely dispose of fireworks as they are toxic and can cause toxic run off pollution for land/water. Be considerate and respectful. Let everyone sleep and heal.
Alternatives to Celebrating Holidays with Fireworks : Listen to loud heavy metal with headphones for hours-make popcorn-and watch your screen saver explode in spirals (have fun healing that blinding headache, no don’t do that)….or….help someone who needs basic things. Which one will fill you with a sense of love? Also, a simple thank you to a person who has worked to do something positive for your country would be a good small way to appreciate how they made a big difference. Having a quiet day of silence is also a wonderful practice to celebrate holidays. Meditate peace. More joy and excitement can come from meditating and resting than from overwhelming the senses with senseless blasts of fire in the air. Let the birds rest. Let yourself heal.
I make awareness in my books for replacing toxic traditions with healthy positive ideas. Sage’s July calendar book page is mostly about this post. Leona’s town has a lot of seasonal fun, but only in healthy ways. What else could we enjoy during July? So many summery things…. What can you think of? There are endless imaginative ways to spend your holidays without harming others.
Give Peace Today. Make amends for harming the world. Redesign your calendar to help, not harm. Wake up to peace, because we’ve been awake for eons…
Wishing for Rain. Love, Amor Milagre
Update: After years of messaging various towns in Maine about the damages of continued pollution here, we have finally received a response. No apologies or sign of humanity. It was an automated response directing us to a page that we had already read. It briefly shows the town rules and says a town vote would be needed to ban fireworks. We have written back to them, and all levels of government, about the negative effects of fireworks and have requested a ban. We’ve also pointed out that the voters would need to be educated on the facts. As is it now, the vote would not be accurate as the voters are uneducated on this topic and are, like many people, de-sensitized and/or deaf from pollution. This kind of broken useless loop system, designed to deter anyone in need of change, is in denial and only provides a dead end.
Governments need to wake up to reality before it’s too late for everyone and more large scale damage ensues. Why isn’t the suffering of an individual enough to stop pollution? It is a warning that can save others from suffering, too. Look at reality. All of the little choices effect the entire world. It has been happening since the beginning of time. The damage to us is terrible enough, but they won’t listen. They hide from responsibility and no matter the issue, they refuse to change. They have stolen the energy we would need to fight this and many other issues, and that is their plan. We don’t want to fight anything. We want to live quietly. I don’t understand why humans make life as horrific as possible. After surviving so much, where can one rest? Where? We asked the town to change the rules so we’re not being polluted because it’s their job to protect the people in the town. We already have jobs. We’re not asking for anything new. Just stop. Don’t add more. Subtract. Stop doing negative things. Stop.
Maine is a state that I moved to hoping for peace and quiet, but instead I have had the most shocking danger and illness of my life due to the toxic, dangerous, sexist, stubborn old rules of the people who live here. And…that is saying something as I have survived many impossibles before coming here. They don’t care, and certainly not about women. Now, we are stuck…again. Does anyone other than us care…anywhere? What the townspeople, who are our disrespectful pollutive neighbours, don’t grasp is that we haven’t slept due to their pollution. They don’t even realize the damage it has done to themselves either, such as hearing loss. We haven’t been able to do our regular routines as we need to, let alone rally an effective peaceful protest that could sway this town’s way of thinking to care about other people. I send the town information, like this, but we are sick at home and cannot go perform speeches at town meetings. We support our town by paying taxes, following the rules, buying things, and starting positive community programs for free. Why can’t they support us by respecting our safety and health boundaries? Why are fireworks, leaf blowers, gas-powered machines, guns, motorcycles and trucks, chainsaws, and many other pollutive practices not considered a public nuisance that can be reported and fined? If someone broke into your home and banged pans together over you while you tried to sleep, that would be considered a viable issue. This is the same, if not much more invasive and damaging. To have to explain to children that they have no control over pollution and that we have to invent endless creative ways to get by is not right. The fact that these are the laws of humans is revolting and disparaging. This contradicts what we teach. So…we write letters and emails. This separates us from the town. We moved here because it seemed like a good family community. Nope. Well, at least we have our beloved Nature. No again. Not allowed to be in it or enjoy it. Too much constant pollution. The humans have devastated our world. Change it now. It can be good. We need nature to heal ourselves from the damage of pollution. Preserve nature and all in, around, through, and under it.
America wants fighting. They make you have to fight for your life every day and at every stage. It is disgusting and damaging, especially when you need dire help. We are just surviving every day’s endless and layered pollution caused by the town and it’s mismanagement of how people are allowed to behave. They have taken the beautiful gift of nature and ruined it to the point that sitting in your own home is too painful to bear. We planted flowers everywhere and cannot sit with them. It’s too polluted. Town outtings are rare, brief, and damaging due to pollution that prompts us to have to retreat home. This is one of the least polluted places. Think about that. This pollution occurs every day of the year. We’ve had to move many times because of this unnecessary pollution to our extreme detriment. Where can we go? It has cost us in every way.
*My message to you is: What you choose to do affects everyone. Are you helping or harming? At the very least, be neutral. No more fighting. Listen and help everyone to have what they need. Respect all kinds of people’s needs. They may be different to yours, but they are equally important. We need options and the freedom to make our own choices. Stop forcing pollution into our homes, surrounding us everywhere, and making us ill for the short and long term. If you think that you’re not affected by pollution, then you are simply in denial and are not aware of the effects. It is not that you are not sensitive enough to feel it. You need to wake up to reality and make changes for the better. Our outer and inner ecosystems need repairing. Prevention, preservation, life cycle redesign, and healing are vitally important for our future.
Now, after another night of fireworks, baby cries, and no sleep, I am even more ill. Getting everyone back to sleep will take months. PTSD is quite difficult to counter. I will leave you to examine the world’s continuation of negative choices and how you can make instant positive changes to improve daily systems and stop dangerous traditions for every neighbourhood and for all people. We have noticed that just this week a few US towns have banned fireworks for this year due to the threat of wildfires, which is good, but can they be permanently banned everywhere based on all of their negative effects?
What you do matters to everyone around you. Stop smoking. Stop sexual violence. Stop abuse. Stop fighting, killing, and damaging. Stop. Learn how to deal with your mental and physical health in positive, neutral, and peaceful ways. You can do this. The world can easily be a safe, wonderful, natural place for everyone…if you can realize it in your choices.
In the evenings, scenes spill out and characters breathe life. Brushes sway and paint glistens in lamplight. A word can change your direction. An image can inspire a change in the wind. A voice can help the universe.
Fellow Authors, your work is powerful. Make it positive. Let’s turn this around and let it all be wonderful and safe. End the violence. Communicate love.
If you can spare any amount, please donate to helpful causes. The women and lost children of the world needed help yesterday. Use your empathy to help others survive. Save lives, prevent trauma and illness, and heal the world’s next generation of people, plants, animals, energy, water, earth, and air for a positive future.
This is the week of the foxglove, buttercup, peony, iris, pollinator-loving wildflowers, lavender, and the first rose bloom. The soft, pillowy petals are beloved by all wildlife. It rains, bathing fuzzy stems in shining dew. We visit each bloom as it unfurls. The flowers are helped by glistening insect friends and greet the clouded sun, “Good morning!” This is an especially magical time to study and write about the poetry of nature… and of the self. Our lessons are taken into the garden with a cup of tea and an umbrella.
Sense all around your lovely being. How do you feel? What kind of messages are whispering to you?

Happy Last Days of June! Love, ~The Botanists at Rose Cottage, Amor Milagre
With each season, our garden renovation design grows in fuller than the last. We replaced lawns with perennial flowers and edible organic plant foods. We made fun pathways to explore under arches of towering stems and sweet blooms. The low buzzing hum increases, and new winged friends stay a while.
Scatter seeds and wait for your gorgeous surprise! Life awaits…
Let other flowers hold up earlier bloomers…they help as they grow…no prop sticks or twine needed!
Our first sense of the new flowering trees’ beautiful blooms! Stars! (Kousa Dogwood)
Sweet as June, an English Rose…heavenly scent…
Planting beds of flowering, fragrant thyme with many pollinator-loving flowers in between is a sustainable way to replace lawns, enjoy your garden, encourage wildlife, and always have healthy organic herbs for the kitchen! July blooms are coming soon…but we’ll sit and hum with these first…
Visit my nature photography and artwork collections to browse more inspiration from our garden.
The Earth has been showing symptoms. We cannot ignore it. This affects everyone, every plant, every animal, and every drop of water. We are connected. What happens there…changes it here. The land is burning. She has a high fever. She has been asking for help. The new smoke adds even more layers of air pollution. We cannot breathe. Fresh air? Where? There is nowhere left to escape to. People are fleeing all kinds of danger. Elsewhere, her cries flood. More symptoms show. This trauma reaches everyone. The Earth is sick. Humans inflicted this pain. Let Earth heal, and all of us with her. Get back to Nature. Grow plants everywhere. Green will burst out of the concrete cracks, if you let them. This is not merely something to get through, but our world needs lasting, intensive healing. Stop polluting. Plants grow up by themselves, so let them be. They are here for a vital reason. We were never meant to live without Nature. We need to live on her, with her, because we cannot live without her. There are no weeds. Lawns can easily be replaced with perennial flowers. Let fields be wild and native, where trees can grow old, and they may be our steady guide. Oxygen needs to be abundant, not a rare luxury when it’s too late. Don’t cut nature down. Encourage her to be herself and flourish. She feeds us. Plants grow all together. They share a language. We can learn this. Plants need one another, just as we need them to live.
Redesign it all. Design for green movement. Sway in the wind. Plant healing seeds today. They will grow.
Live Peace. Begin the Plant Era…once again. Love, Amor Milagre
When you stop eating grains of sugar, tastebuds can truly taste flavours of natural foods. The body does not have to work so hard to combat the pollution that sugar causes and you are aware of healthy portions. Food tastes better because it tastes like itself. It took so much energy to grow…why would you bury it in sugar? Prevent illnesses, like diabetes, and live a delicious healthy life with this one easy step. Be free of addictions. Begin a baby’s life with true health. Give your body peace.
Less is more. Less/no processed sugar means less: preparation time, shopping, storage, dirty dishes, ants, money, energy, medicine, pain, inflammation, illness, doctor’s visits, addiction, and conflict. Less/no processed sugar gives you MORE time, energy, money, space, confidence, wellness, and health to enjoy your life!
Transition into health. Grow and eat whole, organic, non-GMO, plant foods. Go vegan for peace.
Good Afternoon. Did you know that Peace is where Romance lives? This post is an excerpt from my healthy lifestyle book, A Gentle Life by Amor Milagre. I sense the world has long been in a tangle. To unwind and release from this static, each one of us may gently be our true self and connect naturally. This is how the universe may feel…just right.
1. Awareness for the Senses
Feel your skin, your body functioning, your heart exhale, and your electrons buzzing all around you. Breathe in…and out. Feel what you love and what you lack. Listen and give. Feel again. Smile with your entire being. Connect with the trees. Feel their energy. Connect with each other. Send and receive loving energy. This is you. You are love. Love your body, mind, heart, soul, energy, and daily choices. Heal the past, be in the present, and open to the future. Love the connections and find pockets of joy in how you can share and grow this love. It’s infinite…and it’s always there…everywhere…waiting to be kissed up and hugged up and embraced fully with every spec in the universe. Burst with love! Let love accompany you during your day. Consume love. Breathe love in…and out. Listen to love as your lullaby. Dream love. It feels good.
2. Date Yourself
Before you can be present and emotionally in tune with anyone else, you can choose to be eternally in love with your inner and outer self. Try out self dates. Go to a variety of places (safely) and become aware of what you love. You may be surprised what you didn’t know you could enjoy! You can easily date yourself at home, too. Even ten minutes is enough time to check in. Explore new experiences. Exercise in gentle ways. What kinds of movement feel healthy? Wander and sense what your soul connects with. Take your time to know and feel and process. Sort it all out. Nourish healthy habits and memories, and let go of all negativity. It’s too heavy to hold, so let go. Adore your body and the mysterious and magical things it can do. You are connected to everything in the universe. What would you like to adorn your web with? People, places, and nature that match your true energy will connect with you naturally when you are living as your authentic self. Connect within. The confidence, sweetness, and fun that you have when alone is felt everywhere by you being you. This is attractive to yourself and the world around you. This is where peace and romance live…within your authentic self. You are all you need to feel wonderful. Always stay aware of the messages from your inner self, your soul, and your body. You can date yourself all your life. It is important to keep up with this respectful relationship, especially when you have others in your life. Communicate in a love language within and with others for a peaceful day. You choose…everything.
3. Express Yourself
Dancing to music you love, singing in the bath or shower, daydreaming, helping others, laughing and playing, crafting and scrapbooking, drawing and painting, exploring, sewing clothes and toys, acting and reading, inventing and building useful things with natural materials, sailing out with oars to float and unwind, sowing seeds and bulbs, playing instruments, writing creative stories and love letters, decorating, cooking and savouring, simplifying, walking in nature, swimming and climbing, being still, and meditating are just a pocketful of ways to embrace your emotions. Be aware to not bother or neglect others while you are expressing. Feel all of the emotions, process, and release. This positive practice allows air to flow through your energy. Your senses are set free, and you are open to experience this new moment. What do your senses tell you?
For more gentle living, read my original book collection and these journal posts. Listen with your heart. It may tell you something very different than what you think you feel. Listen….and love.
Love, Amor Milagre
What is in your basket today? What spills out into your journal? Examine….and Live Peace.
How can one separate time when it is all at once? My memory is an ancient one, and I love to get lost in my earliest, most natural memories. I close my eyes and see green, sparkling green. My art translates a sliver of these images. My book characters also dwell here, some in mossy hillside homes, cosy in the Earth, and covered in wildflowers. Antonia’s Bakery is a such a children’s book. My Leona novels are from another series that bridges old and new days. An enchanting new book, featuring more illustrations of natural earthen homes, is coming soon! In my stories, many ideas for preserving and appreciating nature are shared.
Below is a video about bushcraft and loving nature that feels grounding for the viewer. I came across it this week while doing some research for our woods and cottage garden. These building techniques remind me of my family now, which is my ancient soul family. We lived with the Earth and we try every day to get back to that peace. Remember when building your homes, it is important to use the most natural, non-toxic, and sustainable materials and systems. This is not only healthy for you now, but for all of the universe in all time periods. Prevent pollution and heal the Earth. Grow goodness! Love, Amor Milagre
Here is another video by a talented woman who made a similar house. I’m not into the lights, but her techniques are wonderful to learn!
In the pocket of a trusty travel bag fits a delicious novel and a sweet children’s book to savour on a train or plane, in a lamplit inn with the summer breeze kissing your robed cheeks, or swaying on a hammock in your back garden. ‘Il dolce far niente’ means the sweetness of doing nothing in Italian. Letting yourself find what you love nourishes and rejuvenates the soul. My books are for all ages and encourage authentic, kind, peaceful practices and ideas to try. I love rereading them with our family as I hope you do, too.
In this often chaotic world, I write ways to live beautifully and naturally. My characters help instead of harm. They are funny, sweet, thoughtful, and very real. I send love to anyone who must travel due to emergencies in their homeland. As I know too well, this kind of travel is not at all relaxing as a vacation would be. People leave to save their lives. They are trying to escape danger. All they had built is left behind, and they have to start over, usually with nothing. This is heartbreaking and incredibly dangerous. Precautions and safe help are urgently needed during times of war, natural disasters, and abuse. Every country must protect the rights of women and children. Re-abolish slavery for good. Replace the history of negativity with positive growth that benefits everyone. New beginnings are a chance to redesign for a better life. Although we all may miss precious things that were lost due to trauma, we can heal and rebuild a healthy future to keep all of the babies of the world safe. Peace is possible if we all choose it.
I include tragic misfortunes and terrible struggles in my books, but I paint up characters who help those in need of a positive solution to solve troubles that seem out of their control. There are too many large and small scale problems on every street and hill in the world. I write peaceful ideas in the hope that positivity will spread down those streets and over those hills to reach anyone who needs help the most. Any little bit of help can make the most important difference for one or many. I wish you a peaceful summer, and I urge everyone to do something that helps someone in the coming months. *Ask how you may help, and then listen. Work with people to solve and prevent problems. Ask if you did help, and listen again. Repeat forever.
I am working on a way for a percentage of each sale to be donated to an organization that directly aids those in need of help while searching for a safe, new home. Being forced to live a nomadic, uncertain life is cruel, dangerous, and terrifying. We all need a steady, safe home. We all can work together to help everyone have this basic need. Our world must get out of this constant survival mode and change into a deep, lasting time of healing. Equality and safety is needed worldwide.
In my gift shop, I also feature artwork and photography inspired by my travels. Nature adores us always…trailing all the way from a rose wall in Tuscany back home to a sweet rose blooming in our New England cottage garden. Help, don’t harm. Preserve nature. Enjoy your unique senses of nature.

My books are cosy to read, or listen to, when at home, on a work break or weekend, and while travelling. Many of my stories are set in New England, such as my Sage Rose Sorrel children’s books, but here are some others that you might love to tag along with as my characters explore new favourite places.
Amaranthe tells of living in NYC and France. Leona has lived in two homes in Italy: one by the mountains and one by the sea. Ellary Eden grows a helpful, enchanting garden in the Witching World! I have just finished three fresh novels for you to explore soon. There is one especially delicious new book that is set in Belgium! Every time you explore a new place, you learn so much for your life ahead.
Peace means everyone is accepted for the beautiful unique being that they are naturally. Peace means all humans, plants, animals, places, and nature are respected. Peace means being honest, aware, inventive, and ready to make positive changes to help all be in harmony together and to heal the harm done on Earth. Peace starts with every person’s thoughts to awaken to empathy, love, and helpful actions. Peace means respecting all, especially women and children. Peace means being helpful and not harmful. There have always been so many people in need, and we all need to help ourselves and others to heal and thrive. We are all connected by energy. Let the world connect with strings of loving energy. This old soul empath gets sick every time any of you are struggling and so, I am always struggling, too. Prevent pain and illness world-wide with peace. To counter the world’s chosen chaos, I make loving books and art to inspire peaceful living. Everyone can do something positive. My upcoming novelette inspires every country to help others. Take sexual violence seriously and do everything to prevent it. Raise awareness and finally hear these horrific stories. It is real and it happens everywhere. It is damaging beyond words and cannot be allowed. Teach emotional health and mental health awareness to all children and adults. No one has the right to harm another. Equality for all is a basic right. There has always been an urgent need for *safe healthy housing for women and children who seek rest to heal from this abusive, neglectful, and unfeeling world. But, why should it even be needed in the first place? Let everyone live a peaceful, respected life. What can you do to help? Stop choosing violence on all levels, don’t allow it, and go the other way to find that love and compassion not only feel better but create a positive ripple effect. This world can easily feel healthy and amazing if we all are helpful and not harmful. Get back to nature and choose plants not war, pollution, or negative energy. Learn about what everyone needs for peace, especially for us highly sensitive people because what would be peaceful for us is healthy for everyone. If one person is harmed, it harms everyone. Peace is a choice that everyone can choose every day, every moment. Open your heart and let the world grow goodness.
Denying or ignoring the horrific things that are real and happening every day to everyone all over the world is a shocking part in the cycle of violence and abuse. Listen, believe, wake up, and help. Set a new path of peace. Women in leadership roles, we need many more of you. Do not follow the toxic or violent masculine examples that pressure you. Be peaceful. I know too well that the survivors are unheard, not believed, blamed, or even told they are confused when they have been brave enough to ask for justice when their life is in danger. The people in charge, especially the women, cannot be the confused ones and they cannot further abuse survivors. Find all those who were abducted and prevent war, displacement, and loss. Do not leave people for dead, especially not because a system is wrong. Life is precious. Leaders and helpers need to be listening, empowering, and ready to do the right thing. Time is important. Safety is imperative. Prevent illness, pain, injury, death, loss, war, famine, rape, murder, and suffering. The current systems are extremely wrong and do not help, but rather they make it worse, rendering a world message of ‘You are alone and no one will help you.’ That needs to change. A reliable respectful system, not hopelessness, needs to be the feeling whenever help is needed. Make honest, smart systems that work so people can safely report abuse, get help, and to stop the abusers in the world from doing more harm. Women and children need a safe world so they can breathe, live, and be themselves. If the world knew what reality was, it would have to change everything immediately. Stand up for the truth and save lives. Believe the innocent, the survivors, the ones who need help. If anyone is taking in survivors of trauma and war, know that a truly safe place is necessary. Do not harm these people. All of the lost children need safe helpers to find their families or new safe homes. This world needs a complete redesign so that all people are held accountable for their actions. We need a safe world for all.
Love to all of you who are suffering, who are coping with PTSD, illness, injury, and pain, to all of the children, women, mothers, fathers, those who have lost loves, anyone who has suffered sexual violence, all who are pregnant or have newborns, anyone feeling helpless or hopeless, love to the empaths and old souls who live war daily, love to anyone in shock, and love to all of the helpers. We thank you all for being there when someone needed you. Every bit helps, but much more immediate and lasting help is needed locally and all over the world. Be a safe person for the world. Plant seeds of goodness and help them grow, teaching others as you go.
Love, Amor Milagre
