You don’t fight for peace, you peace for peace.
This week I am facing a challenging and painful situation where my white, 7 year old daughter was tormented and called a racists by multiple classmates. (She doesn’t even know what that means). My daughter was also blamed for something she didn’t even say. No child heard her, but a child made up a story that suited her and shared it. As the truth unravels I am seeing clearly the problems in our society AND it begins with the adults.
Children are not born hating anyone. They don’t even see skin color. They are taught to hate because of their parents. Parents projecting their own unresolved issues and pain on their children. And then… sadly these once innocent children believe that they are already victims and they in turn hurt other children.
If we as a society are going to fix the hatred that exists regardless if it be religion, skin color, sexuality, income level, or whatever…it begins with the adults being accountable for managing their emotions and choosing to heal so that all thinking, speaking, and acting originate from a peaceful place of clarity instead of a space of defensiveness and blame. You do not fight for peace, you peace for peace.
If you seek world peace or even peace in your house or neighborhood look past the differences, develop self-awareness and emotional intelligence. AND seriously just be honest and kind.
Mindful suggestions for overcoming hate and finding peace:
*Figure out what it is you fear and why.
*Find out what the story is you tell yourself about other races, religions, or anyone you don’t like? Is is true or are YOU the one passing judgement?
*Your feelings and experiences are valid. Your judgement and blame are not. Work them out and do not take them out on innocent people.
*Decide if you want to be a victim or if you want to heal. Victim or empowered change maker? It is your choice.
* Everyone has at least one story that will break your heart. Have some compassion.
*Consider that not everything is about you. The other person may have no idea and may have not even intended harm. ASK yourself; “Did they intentionally hurt me?” If not, go within, ask for help, and move on.
Peace, Blessings, Joy, and Love to you all,

Amy spent her childhood dreaming of being a doctor only to watch her mother die of cancer when she was 20. Her life took an entirely different direction after that and she spent much of her 20’s sick with chronic illnesses.
One day Amy was too sick to take care of her newborn baby and she had to crawl to the phone to call for help. Amy then went on a quest to heal and looked in places she never knew existed before that day. AND she healed largely through fitness, nutrition, and meditation.
Through that experience Amy rediscovered a passion for helping others. She is committed to excellence and to making a difference in the world.
