Many years ago I was gifted a plaque, No Rain, No Rainbows, after a long period of adversity where I experienced significant violence and abuse, leading to addiction, self harm and low self worth.  My healing journey has been sprinkled with many divinely timed moments such as books, teachers, people and experiences that crossed my path and enriched my life in ways that I will never forget, enabling me to release the pain and stories of the past that no longer served me. This new freedom gifted me reverence for beauty and inspired me to share these self love learnings with women and children whose lives were also affected by trauma, particularly abuse.  

 

The Rainbow is symbolic and carries many different meanings in religions, tribes, nature, communities, stories and people’s hearts.  For me it signifies the closing of a dark chapter and the dawn of a new, where I am continuously amazed by  beauty, and the incredible creatures we are blessed to share this breathtaking planet with.

 

From a young age I have always loved animals. At the age of 8 I regularly cycled to the local farm to help milk the cows, often returning with a couple of kittens from the barn that I was immediately told to return. As soon as I was old enough I left home to begin life's adventures and have been blessed by many animals; gorgeous cats, dogs, fantailed doves, incredible chickens, pom pom crested ducks, pigs with adorable personalities, a miniature horse and soon to be miniature donkeys! 

 

I love their individual characters, the entertainment they provide, their incredible ability to tune in and read our moods, often understanding us better than we do ourselves!  Their beauty, calmness, unconditional love and hugs have kept me going on days when I wanted to give up, and those waggy tails that have motivated me out bed and out of the house when my anxiety was doing it's very best to keep me locked in it!

 

I am at my happiest with animals, sharing compassion, connection and creativity to those who need it most, inspiring women and children to realize their unique beauty and worth, bringing unconditional love and joy to their life , as the animals and many wonderful people and experiences, have to mine.  

 

I know that I am learning the same lessons on a daily basis that I write and teach about.  I grow and change. I am a humble and grateful student of life, excited that you are here.  I hope that one day our paths may cross, that we may meet in person, until then, welcome to the magical world of Amitola Wonderland, home to Therapy Animals for Brave Hearts.

 

With Love,

Katie
