Breathe Fresh Air for Cell Health, Anti-Cancer Diet & Healing Illness Naturally


Amor Milagre Fresh Air for Cell Health, Anti-Cancer Diet / Healing Illness Naturally The Shop at Dove Cottage Baby & Child Collection Autumn Fall 2018 Art Design Books Healthy Organic Life Apparel Baby Organic Nursery Toys amormilagre.com

Breathe in and out.  Fresh air for your lungs, cells, and everywhere.  Even your hair and skin soften in real air.  Unpolluted winds refresh and boost the immune system and promote healthier sleep patterns.  Cancer is another illness, a word, a warning sign, that something is not right.  There is a lack of oxygen, fresh natural air, and a healthy balance that stems from all directions from the physical to mental to soul.  For all of the illnesses I have overcome, fresh air and quietness were prominent factors in healing and prevention.  Massive life changes heal.  Removing stressors is key.  Eat organic plants.  Live unplugged and in natural light.  Don’t fight illness.  Heal it.  Imagine not having to overcome illness in the first place.  Imagine systems and professionals who help and are compensated for real improvements.  Transitions into health and basic needs heal.  Connect with Mamma Nature, for she knows, just as the body knows, how to balance and restore.  I don’t believe any matter feels healthy boxed in, sealed up, or contained and separated from Nature.  Let animals and plants shine in the sun.  The universe needs to get back to Nature.  Healthy air, clouds, soil, and water make our food, our Life.  Let’s protect and respect Nature and ourselves.  Everything you do, be aware.  Small scale and large scale, and endless time scale.  Is this helping or hurting?

Moving forward, our home and health designs require clean, fresh, natural air without the consent or influence of others.  Our past and current designs did as well, but when depending on surrounding environments and people, intentions are frustrated into more illness.  If you can’t open a window to rejuvenate your home, it’s time to dance over to a fresh field and start anew.  When your voice is unheard or not understood, unstick, let go, move on, and remove yourself from negativity.  This idea works in many ways and planes for healthy living.  Begin again, tiring I know, but this time, with the knowledge that you can have what you need, when you make it so.  Make sure your surroundings match your needs.  Pause anything or anyone that doesn’t allow you to have your needs.  First take care of you.  This excerpt is from my self-health book collection.  For more, read my current and upcoming ethically made books from The Gentle Life Collection.

How are you?  Are you filling up with Love from within?  Do you know Love is always there for you?  Are you listening for the unbalance?  Are you surrounding yourself with basic needs for wonderful health and Love?  Are you breathing in good energy?  Know that you are Love.  Be yourself.  Be Love!

Stay tuned for more anti-cancer diet / preventing & healing from illness recipes, books, and nutrition benefit information.  It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Let’s find ways to not have to have a month for this or any illness.  What can we do to not accumulate cancer and illness?  Changes…big healthy wonderful natural changes!  Start small and crack a window, take a walk all bundled up, write letters and use your voice for change, and practice breathing deeply and gently.

A little matching film for this organic journal post is below.

Stay well!  Be Purely you!  Live in the Light! ~Amor Milagre

The Film for this post will come back again soon.

A related Universal Message:  Anyone who is trying to leave an unhealthy relationship, home, place, or country could be met kindly with compassion and nonviolence by new friends/the world/compassionate ‘leaders’.  Be aware to not go from one abuse to another.  Humans, let’s break the vicious cycle and start a new one of kindness, especially for people in need of a healthy change.  Unlearn abuse, fear, and judgement.  Learn Love.  Protect babies of all ages 0-1000.  Teach compassion and all can be well in harmony, respect, and consideration.  Strive for healthy communication and live in the peace of it.  There is room for everyone in this universe.  Humans made the lines.  Nature grows everywhere, embracing all life.  Man can take down their emotional borders and let Love go in and out.  We send Love, strength, and hope out into the Universe all the time so that this energy will travel to anyone who needs it.  Feel it in your heart.  Everyone can do something to help.  Let’s use our voices for helpful Peace.

“Wednesday, play with your food.” Organic Baby, Toddler, & Me Snacks

Amor Milagre Autumn Play with Your Food Baby & Toddler Snacks Art Design Organic Vegan natural children child club art class 2018 Collection amormilagre.com

Ever since I was very small, I’ve seen faces everywhere.  It was a way to entertain myself as I walked along the swirling lines of houses.  When I would prepare snacks for younger kids, I made a face with the food, so they’d have fun eating it.  And so, I’ve been doing this.  It’s funny to eat a raisin eye and crunch a nutty nose, when seen with an innocent, vegan soul who doesn’t take it literally, it’s a fun moment together.  Eating clouds and trees and octopus beret hats.  It’s nice to see a smiling face on your plate each day and a smiling family to match.  Children think the silliest things are hilarious, and it can help them eat well.  Little Angels here make their own faces at snack time.  This lightens the tiring task of eating before naps.  A green smoothie, (recipe coming up shortly), and a snack of nuts and fruit ensures a good rest for all.  Empty plates every time.  All is eaten, down to the last ‘jacket button’.  Perhaps, hospital meals, school lunches, and food everywhere would be better received when served with a smile?  Fun Halloween faces are coming up!  Happy Halloween and Happy Parenting!  XOXO ~Amor Milagre

Fresh Organic Garden Herb Tea Hair Rinse & Avocado Mask Snack


Amor Milagre Fresh Garden Herb Tea Hair Rinse Organic Vegan Non-Toxic natural beauty Recipe amormilagre.com

Today, we are strolling through our children’s garden to find plants for an herbal hair rinse.  Rosemary, lavender, anise hyssop, peppermint, thyme, and sage.  Garden fresh flavours and scents of the Earth.  Organic and pure, perfect in design, healthy and comforting, brew to cleanse hair, skin, mind, body, heart, and Soul.  Baby-and-Me bath with tea leaves.  A fortunate present moment together.  Nothing wasted.  Grown for good health, animals, and bees.  A Dear One’s adventure.  A garden of life!

Amor Milagre Fresh Garden Herb Tea Hair Rinse Organic Vegan Non-Toxic natural beauty Recipe amormilagre.com

Garden Herb Hair Rinse

Pick fresh organic herbs (no toxic sprays/chemicals/unnatural soil, use non-GMO plant seeds).  Steep in hot water until golden.  Breathe in the herbal steam.  Strain herbs to use later for more tea or use in the bath.  Drink some of this nourishing tea and/or add it into a bowl full of fresh, cool water.  Rinse hair in shower/bathtub for a natural clean routine.  Return plants back to the garden to compost when done.  The fresh herbal scents will awaken your senses, letting in light, resting in openness, while keeping your hair, scalp, skin, and all healthy.  Soften and condition hair and skin, if desired, with natural foods, like avocado below.  Inside and out.

Water is the best way to clean.  Start children off in life with habits that say:  “You are wonderful just the way you are!  Stay natural, be purely you!”  (More positive inspiration for all ages is featured in my books, artwork, organic recipe lifestyle journal, all in The Shop at Dove Cottage, and amormilagre.com.

Amor Milagre Fresh Avocado Face Mask Snacks Baby & Me Organic Vegan Non-Toxic natural beauty Recipe amormilagre.com

Avocado Hair & Skin Mask

A fresh mask for all ages.  This is especially fun for kids to try this tactile, healthy bonding beauty tip.  (Be aware of food allergies, as always).  Mash up avocado, set aside most of it for the snack, and smooth some on face and hair, a little will do for children.  Eat the avocado-wrap snack while the mask is on.  Add in seeds, dried fruit, nuts, olives, and/or beans.  Rest easy, and if with children, laugh and imagine funny green face/hair adventures.  Rinse off gently.  This beautifully coloured yellow-green routine is memorable and inspires more of the same, healthy, enjoyable habits for you and your Dear Ones.  More garden shares are coming soon!  xo ~Amor Milagre

Wild Rose Petal Bath

Amor Milagre Presents Wild Rose Petal Bath organic home, garden, healthy lifestyle amormilagre.com

Evening kitchen dancing in misty tones.  Dusty cinnamon cranberries bake, scenting the air warmly.  A walk where the wild roses roam, gently gathering fallen petals, so naturally pleasing and delicate.  The word ‘sweet’ was named for you.  A bath runs away into the night stars.  Twirling and swirling, the petals ride on faerie water tides.  Sweet is this bath, and noses giggle with petals that stick.  Look at those rosy cheeks, oh one fell into the water!  Laughs and unwound senses breathe.  Pajama families dance and sing into dreams:  light, loving, and airy.  In the morning, float out in vast Nature in the calming beauty that we all are.  Ocean, lake, pond, river, pool, or puddle.  Water is life!  Keep it healthy for all, clean it up, and stay natural.  Water, Earth, Air.  Feel it.  Be natural, be bare, be true, be purely you!  Live in the light!  ~Amor Milagre

Wild rose petals soothe the body and mind, unwind headaches, and heal the skin.  The sweet scent is entirely beneficial for the soul.

More ways of feeling connected with Nature are featured in my original children’s book collection and in my upcoming organic beauty and healthy lifestyle books, exclusively here at amormilagre.com.

**We gathered fallen wild rose petals, with no toxic sprays/chemicals/unnatural soil, use non-GMO plant seeds/plants.

Organic Stone Circle Garden

Amor Milagre Presents Stone Circle Garden organic home & garden sunflower amormilagre.com

A simple circle of Nature’s stones and organic compost makes magic in your garden and soul.  Let the glorious rain wash and nurture perennial wildflower seeds to surprise next season’s bees, while organic herbs sprout in the meantime, for little ones to taste on misty morning walks.  Temporary or permanent, to grow in beauty, this easy-to-design garden is a delight for the senses outside and seen from inside the home, too.  A little film to match below.  ~Amor Milagre PS Gardening ideas are also woven into my original children’s books!

Amor Milagre Presents Stone Circle Garden Film, Organic Home & Garden from Amor Milagre: Ethical Gift Shop on Vimeo.

How To:  Place a stick or garden stake at the center of where you want your garden.  Tie a string around it, and figure out how large of a circumference you’d like your garden to be.  Measure the radius amount and wrap that length of the string to another stick.  Trace the circle on the ground in the dirt or mark with stones.  This is a quick, natural, non-toxic way to mark out a garden.  You can insert more sticks/stakes to vertically visualize your circle garden, connecting with string, or start laying stones down in a circle.  Add organic compost and plant seeds and plants.  Et voila!  Let the rain help your plants grow very strong.  Water new plants in, and later water if really needed, but Nature knows best and grows best with natural rain rhythms.  Use saved rainwater in barrels and homemade organic compost for best results and ethical gardening practices.  Enjoy your blooms and edible organic foods every year.  This makes a beautiful winter garden structure as well.  You can build up the stones as high or thick as you like.  Ours is temporary so it is simply laid out.  Use garden stones, because they already live there and look more natural with plants.

Nature’s colours, shapes, and textures are varied and are all the more beautiful for it, humans included.  A great lesson for designing or appreciating anything/anyone:  natural, healthy, and unique.  More organic Home & Garden how to’s are featured in my upcoming ethical, healthy, organic lifestyle books.

A topiary of lettuce seedlings makes a delicious fresh salad and a beautiful window garden to enjoy all year.  Growing plants from seeds is especially rewarding when you share your new friends with someone.  Seeds make lovely gifts, and they can be easily slipped into an envelope with a letter to a friend.  (Look for organic non-GMO seeds).  Children and babies love to nurture their toys and their baby plants.  Gently caring for plants shows you how to gently care for yourself.  Gardening is beneficial and healing for children of all ages from 0-1000.  Plants improve air quality, and freshen up your life.  Fresh food feels good in the soul and body.  The practice of topiary is old and loving.  Create, inspire, enjoy!

Amor Milagre Lettuce Topiary 1 Easter Egg Organic Garden Spring 2018 Organic Vegan, Art & Design amormilagre.com

Shape the lettuce topiary by following the shape of your desired dish.  Trim the leaves lightly, not too low/short, allowing to regrow.  Place the leaves into a bowl for a fresh green salad.  This dish is egg-shaped, just in time for Spring and Easter.  Enjoy eating your tender salad greens.  Set the planting dish back on a sunny windowsill.  Water as needed so the plants regrow to provide another salad.

More Spring and Easter inspiration for you and your dear ones is coming up!  (Try to either reuse a container or if buying a new one, look for ceramic or non-toxic, sturdy materials.  Avoid flimsy plastic  when possible.  Think longevity, renewable, natural materials.) . You can use/make 3-D wire topiary frames in the shape of bunnies or baby chicks for a very Springy, Easter feeling, too.  The possibilities are endless!  We also grew rainbow Swiss chard, seen above.  Our newest plantings include cherry tomato seeds, spinach, garlic, and some teddy bear sunflower seeds, that will live in the garden later.  More organic salad recipe inspiration coming soon!

Share a Valentine

Amor Milagre Share a Valentine 10 Crayon Club baby children kids charity love family elderly chidlren's homes, Art & Design amormilagre.com

We love to share valentines with dear ones in February.  We also love to make valentines to share love with local communities, such as elderly homes, children’s homes, and hospitals.  A simple message to know that the universe loves you just as you are is a very powerful thing, especially if you’re sick, scared, or hurting.  We encourage this easy and happy gift for you to share with your neighbouring communities.  There is always room for more love!

The very loving & talented toddlers in our Crayon Club made cheerful drawings on the back of these little valentine’s day cards.  (A responsible paper choice is important, too.) View our little film, showing more drawings, below.  As I edited the film, grouping these lovely drawings and offerings of love together, they connected to form a powerful and peaceful statement, one that I express in everything we do.  If everyone loves, then everyone feels loved.  For more fun ideas, for any age, check back here in our journal and for our upcoming Crayon Club book!  Happy Love Day!  ~Amor Milagre

Art is a wonderful way to express emotions, release, and dream.  Art therapy is easy and free to try.  Just pick up a crayon, pencil, paintbrush, and let go.  See what amazing colours, shapes, and imagery you can explore.  See how much better you feel by adding this relaxation technique into your regular routine.  Unwind your mind and sleep well.  We incorporate lots of healthy, therapeutic art & storytelling techniques in our original series of Classes & Clubs.  Know yourself and love yourself. 

There are so many people who would love a visit from a kind soul.  (It’s best to visit only when you’re healthy.  It’s the same for making cards to send to critically ill people.  It’s always good to be mindful of the whole picture).  Many nursing homes and hospitals have a space set up for colouring and crafts.  They have rules for gifts.  Usually they accept new gifts still in the packaging with specifics to the kinds of gifts that are allowed and loved.  Art has endless possibilities.  It improves memory and has a calming effect.  If more people lovingly and gently visited others, who maybe don’t have many visitors, these communities might get more funding, updated interiors, which may improve health conditions, and they would definitely benefit from something new to talk, sense, and think about.  They would feel more loved and listened to.  Everyone has many stories in their book of life, and so many people would love to share their life with others.  This kind of sharing is so inspiring, even on a subconscious level, for some, if not immediately touching the heart on a very aware level. 

Helping others in ways that you can help, while setting healthy boundaries for your own health, sets off a loving chain of events into the universe.  Teaching children to help others is important in forming a well rounded perspective.  (Always keep a good watch over your children, in general, even when helping out.  Talk to them about their experiences and help them sort emotions.  Prepare them with information and tell them to ask for help if needed.  Moments can feel overwhelming, so communication is key.).  If we help ourselves first with basic needs, when possible, we can help others much better.  If everyone helped, even a little bit, then everyone would feel more loved.  Many people are resting and ill, so when you visit, consideration and empathy are always good tools to bring with you.

Some Ideas for Care Centers:  Better, more natural facilities, with views of nature would help everyone want to come and spend time there.  Encouragement and appreciation for the caregivers, volunteers, employees, and visitors.  Safer, more ergonomic ways of lifting and moving for patients and caregivers.  (So many injuries happen when transferring a patient to a bed.)  Non-toxic cleaners.  Open flow with lots of space for wheel chairs and rolling beds.  Great security, friendly employees, and a welcoming entryway that is family friendly.  If elevators are outdated with yellow flickering lights that are scary, not only for children, add natural daylight light bulbs and freshen up the elevator walls with new paint, and clear directory signage for floor layout.  Well designed, beautiful, cozy, comfortable, homey shared spaces, rooms, and nooks in between the bedrooms for everyone to sit peacefully, enjoying visits, reading, or movies.  Restful rooms with windows and a respectfully healthy space for each person would encourage health to improve.  Small rooms designed only for the bed- and wheelchair-bound encourages diminishing health and abilities.  More natural light, better updated lighting, and an air circulation system for fresh air.  In house:  doctors, therapists, beauticians, cooks, holistic healers, and other helpful people would greatly improve the quality of daily life for patients, caregivers, visitors, and others.  It’s important to ensure that the caregivers are up to date on their qualifications, not overworked or understaffed, and kind and gentle with the patients.  Ideally, if everyone helped, donated, and made care centers a healthy place to live and work, they could be a lot more affordable and less stressful for everyone involved.  Another idea is safe pathways to take a walk in gardens outside.  Perhaps a garden room inside for people who would greatly benefit from ‘greenhouse’ air.  Feeling close to nature is so calming and connects you to the world.

Local people could take turns setting up a time to come in and share their talents:  Musicians can sing or play soft, sweet songs.  Artists and crafters could come and sit and paint or knit, allowing everyone to see the process.  If allowed, gardeners could donate a few window boxes and patients, gardeners, and school children could plant seeds together, watching them grow every day.  Herbs have calming scents.  Make an environment that hugs the senses, and there will be a waiting list of excited people to come share their gifts.  Read a nice story.  It would be especially nice for students who ‘need’ community service for their schooling requirements to do something they love in a beautiful place. 

Everyone is a baby after all, and so many people are tucked away unseen.  We encourage everyone to make a positive change in the care centers just down the street or on your block.  (No need to travel far in order to help someone.  Though there are so many people, especially children, who do need immense and immediate help all over the world, there are probably people who also need help right next door.  It’s good to go through proper channels for even a day of volunteering, even if it’s as simple as an email, so you can be accounted for).  You don’t have to donate monetary things, but you can sit and listen pleasantly.  That would make all the difference in someone’s day.  Give what you can.  Give only one afternoon.  Give an afternoon every week or month.  Make a garden outside the windows.  Celebrate holidays.  Call or email ahead to ensure healthy security.  Teachers or anyone who sees someone being hurt or sees signs of someone being hurt, don’t turn a blind eye, seek help for those people.  It only takes one person to try to destroy someone’s life, and it only takes one person to try to help someone’s life.  Be the helper.  Seek help for yourself if you need it, and keep seeking until you find it.  Sadly, many people whose job it is to help can add to the existing problems.  Assess your comfort level, trust your instincts, and be careful. 

If no one visits, then no one sees the positive changes that can be made.  Let’s treat people like people, and not like storage boxes left in a room to collect dust and painfully deteriorate.  There are so may opportunities to make people a priority.  Just as we think there are many ways to set up beautiful activities for local families with children at a library or the town meeting hall, it is the same for people of all ages and abilities.  You never know when you may fall on difficult circumstances and need a shelter, hospital, or care center.  Making these places wonderful for those who need them now helps everyone in the future, too!  If the food was fantastic and the places were lovely, then people would feel comfortable living there at any age, of any ability, and before they are not able to move or do anything.  Design the spaces for everyone, and everyone will come.  Design the spaces to have different ‘landmarks’ with colours, artwork, sections of gathering spaces so the patients are not wandering, lost in beige hallways, unable to find their bedroom.  Visitors need to be able to navigate, too.  This is especially important for sensitive people, like empaths, who often feel immensely overwhelmed in crowds (more than 1 person) or large housing facilities.  Donations of books, homey things like lamps, bookcases, etc might be great tools for designers to play with and arrange when making these spaces.  Local shops like grocery stores or art stores could donate supplies.  Others could volunteer their time to help patients use the supplies.

How inspiring and fun would it be for the clean up crew to have a nightly gallery viewing of all the artwork made that day?  (Using pin boards or magnets.)

There are so many children that need safe, healthy, positive, loving homes and family.  There are so many people being abused that have nowhere safe to go and no one to help them.  There are so many opportunities to help in positive ways.  Everyone has beautiful gifts.  Let your light shine!  Help others so their lights can shine even brighter!

Join our Fun & Free Family Crayon Club!    Silly, wiggly dancing hearts.

Parents:  Colouring with your children is a great bonding practice.  Ask them about their pictures, get to know their beautiful thoughts, and ease their concerns.  Play is a good way to communicate and learn about one another.  More information about these topics is in our Crayon Club books and upcoming books!  Giving artwork to others is a great way for children to participate in helping their community.  Write their age and date.  Others will adore and marvel at their beautiful and smile-inspiring pictures.

Amor Milagre Stationery Collections are coming in 2019!  We encourage expression.  The insides of our cards are blank for our customers to express their love.  A handmade card or note means so much more than just signing your name.  Take a moment to share your love.  It is unending and grows when you share it.  Children of all ages, 0-1000, can make their own cards.

Favourite Tools Part 1

Amor Milagre Favorite Tools 1 art studio atelier office kitchen homeschooling workshop family organic vegan Art & Design amormilagre.com

Tools are everywhere.  From your hands, feet, mind, heart, soul, expressions, and body to your hat, spoons, musical instruments, food, sun, moon, and pencils, everything is a tool to help us inspire positivity.  Every room in our home stores our favourite tools.  In the kitchen, a wooden spoon is always there, ready to use.  Screwdrivers and hammers dot the basement as we finish a room.  Paint brushes dry out by the sink, while lamps await our touch so they can shine their light for us.  Notebooks excitedly lay and turn pages for new stories and friends to be invented.  Hats shade our eyes, as we walk in the deer tracks in the snow, meditating in nature.  What are your favourite tools?

Amor Milagre Favorite Tools 1 art studio atelier office kitchen homeschooling workshop family organic vegan Art & Design amormilagre.com

In the kitchen:  the wooden spoon, a sharp knife, fresh food, and a favourite pot.  When you have favourites, you don’t need anything else.  Everything in our home is our favourite.  Minimal belongings help us to be organized, uncluttered, and serene.  Old things are mended or sold, donated, or given as a gift to someone who sees it as their favourite.

Gravity is a great tool when paired with some great techniques.  A twist in the hand, and you have fresh, ripe fruit.  Wild ones eat fallen fruit, seeds, nuts, and plants.  The wind spreads seeds everywhere as a wonderful transportation system/ride.  Nature works together, and we try to have the things in our home work together with us, respecting nature.  We make as much as we can by hand.  This has been a goal of mine since birth.  I always wanted to learn how to make everything.

Babies learn to use natural tools such as their voice, energy, and body.  If we teach them gently, they will live, think, and love gently, too.

So many tools to help us do what we like.  Umbrellas, for baby and me, take us on a tour of a world under water droplets and reflective light.  When paired with natural rubber rain boots, a grand adventure is upon us.  Saved and stored foods bide us time to cook with all year long.  With our tools come the processes, and then the results, adapting to our ever changing tastes.

Scissors snip hair to keep healthy habits fresh.  Sconces shine sweetly on a dimmer sweet on the eyes, not too often on cloudy days, as I paint starry skies and ocean waves.

Just like choosing fresh ingredients for baking and cooking, tools must fulfill their destined purpose, function, ergonomics, and feel good to use.  A tool that gives you splinters needs the help of another tool to smooth it out, making it safe for your hands.  This gentle mending can be applied to everything from relationships to learning new things.  If you’re stuck, try something else.  Light and shade, in balance, are healthy for the nervous system and for good rest, following Nature’s clock.

From paint brushes and chisels to pencils, we use a large number of tools every day.  We take care of our tools so they work for us for a very long time.  Then they can be passed on to work for others, too.

Colours colours everywhere!  I use art and design as a tool to work with moods and emotions.  I arrange artwork to create a feeling for each space.  Wallpaper and bedding.  Interiors & exteriors.  Garden plant design.  Children’s book nursery illustrations.  Custom house paint colours.  Mixing colours is a large part of what I do.  These primary coloured watercolour paints were found on a trip to Hungary at one of the last remaining pigment mills that uses water power.  Good craftsmanship for any tool lends ease of use.  I only have to use a tiny bit of these colours to mix extraordinary hues.  A knife that is sharp slices a tomato gently and nicely.  It’s not crushed and the user is not strained.  Take care of your tools so they take care of you.  Ergonomics are important, especially for constant use.  How is your body aligned when using your favourite tools?
