Dear Reader


My dog Odin has been ill since before Easter, which have given me much stress by time and because we couldn’t get a diagnose. We are still not sure about that, but should get more to know this week.

Odin got some new medication last week and it seems to work, he is not bleeding now. This gave me some peace in mind and just enough for my health to react. I went down with a virus and have used mostly of my time in my bed since Friday.

When I woke up today, I started feeling better, so I hope it will be better from now.

I have asked for your patience several times in this period and now I will need more time to get a change to catch up at your blogs. I’m still tired and need to find my energy again.

Wish you a happy day

Irene

Update at Odin


odin-2

A spring photo of Odin, where he is happy and feeling good. He is not looking so happy today

Odin started last week to bleed from one side of his nose. Then our vet took blood tests to find out the reason for this. He found out, that Odin had an infection and otherwise his blood test looked good. There were no indications for other illnesses. Odin got 2 kind of medication and we hoped the best. The vet told me, that Odin could continue the bleeding until Monday

In the weekend, Odin started to bleed from his nose many, many times. I did my best to stop it and to keep him calm. Didn’t leave him alone at all, because he was scared, when he started to bleed, which I found understandable

It became worse and worse and more often with the bleeding, so I contacted the vet again and Odin got more tests and X-ray and needed then to go to another Vet Hospital for Endoscopy and other kind of tests, which happened yesterday. Two times of sedation in one day can be a little tough, so our Vet decided to keep him in the clinic last night to secure, they could help him, if anything would happen

I’m happy to be able to say, that nothing bad happened. Now we know, that Odin has an infection in one side of his nose and they took more blood tests today to find out, why he got the infection from beginning, to avoid this to be repeated. We should get these answers Friday

Odin came home in the afternoon, happy to be home again and I was very happy to see him again. He is now very tired and I will need to keep him as calm as possible for the next 2 weeks. No long walks and nothing exciting, because this can start his bleeding again. I got new medication for him and need to give him an injection daily to avoid more bleeding the next days

Odin has been shaved many places in the last week, so I decided to share a more happy photo of him

Thank you very much for your kind support

Irene

NB: I don’t know, how much I will be online for the next days and thank you for your patience

Sand Storm in Spain – 8 Photos


Sandstorm 1

We have had Sand Storm in Spain today, it comes from Africa and pass the Mediterranean Sea. This gives much dust all over here and if we have washed clothe and hanged this outside, we can start all over again. You can see the dust over the sea here, first I thought there were fire, but found out, it was Sand Storm instead, not so dangerous…

Sandstorm 4

I photographed these photos, while I walked with Odin in the afternoon

Sandstorm 7

We are not far from the sea here, but I didn’t feel like going there in this dust

Sandstorm 3

Here you can see the dust change the color of our usual beautiful blue sky

Sandstorm 6

Here we look from a little more far away

Sandstorm 2

We pass from here, when we go for our walks, away from most houses

Sandstorm 8

Here you can see both the beautiful blue sky and the Sand Storm

Sandstorm 5

 This is our usual place for walking at the moment and the sand did fly here too

I hope, that you enjoyed to join us

Life


Rainbow 2

We do all experience and meet challenges in our life, some meet more than others and we can just hope, that we are able to handle the challenges, as each of us meet in life

When I look back at my life, I see a lot of positive experiences, which make me happy to think about. Some times have been more fun than others, that is life

I got my kids very early in life and I did never regret to get them, even it was early and more life experiences might have helped me in many ways. I have two adult kids, the first just before I became 20 years old and the second three years later. I have been young with my kids, which has been good in some ways, because went they became teenagers, I still did remember, how it was to be a teenager myself. Not easy…

I have been through many great times, but also times as I could live without. I do know, that all of this have made me to the person, as I am today, but I could still live without these. I have had many times, where I wished, that I had more guidance and support, than I had back then, but what doesn’t kill us, makes us usually stronger

I haven’t been to good to find the best partners, while I was younger. Short time ago, I got to know, that I have been an idiot-magnet sometimes, which I today easily only can agree about. I think and hope, that I now have learned by my mistakes

When we meet idiots, psychopaths, sociopaths etc. then it is not possible not to be damaged in different ways. These kind of monsters, they are not humans – I deny to call them humans – they destroy everyone and everything, as they come close to and unfortunately, they are not always easy to spot up in front, then it would be more easy to avoid them

I did meet this kind of monsters and several of them. They have damaged my soul very much and I have worked very hard and still do, to be healed from all those years

For many years, I have had interest in alternative ways of living, healing, gemstones, meditation etc. In the beginning I worked with these things on and off, later I found out, how much I feel, that the gemstones have helped me in my healing, why I continue to use them in many ways and for some years also to create jewelry with

When I wear jewelry with gemstones, I can feel their power. They can never go instead of a doctors visit, when this is needed, but they can support our healing beside the doctors work

Today I do meditations daily, sometimes several times daily I do also use gemstones, while I meditate, specially when I send healing thoughts to other souls in need. I know, they support me to send, what is needed

Last year I went vegetarian again, which I did not regret. I feel so much better in my body and mind after this. I do yoga, both in a class and at home and this help me to get into a better shape and helps my body to heal too

There are many ways, as we can go, when we wish to heal our wounds from earlier in this life. I chose personal development by many reasons, most of all to learn myself to know, to learn my own limitations for now, then I had something to work from and could see, how far I come day by day

It was a big challenge for me to move to Spain, which I did 4 1/2 years ago. I have been much alone, specially in the first years here, where my Spanish was almost not existing, which makes it difficult to communicate with anyone, when I rarely met people, who were able to speak anything else than Spanish or Catalan

In these first years, I really got to know myself at positive and less positive ways, found my strength after some while and the will to survive, live and enjoy my life. When you are much alone, you have a lot of time to think, which I also did and I got to know myself so well, that I also found out, that I needed help for healing my soul

I read a lot, communicated online with people, read more and got to learn, how I could help myself to heal. First of all, I needed to find out, what to heal from, because there were several reasons. Then I learned, that by forgiving first myself, for at all to let anyone hurt me, was first step. Next step was to forgive the monsters, as did hurt me. This step was the most difficult to come through, until I found out, that I didn’t need to forgive their bad acting, which are not possible to ever forgive, but “only” their existence as being monsters and not humans. I found this as the most difficult, as I have ever learned to do in my life, but after I did, I found out, that I got many energies released from my soul. Today I feel more free than ever before in my life

When I found out to forgive, not for them, but for me, to find my freedom to live, this was the best, I ever have done for myself

Now you know a little more about, why I love to work with gemstones and their energies, they have been priceless in their support for me.

Enjoy your life – while you still are able to

Love & Life


wpid-wp-1444397964319.jpeg

Love has many different kind of definitions and we do all use the word Love in different ways, because we are different in mind

For one, Love can be the most important in life, if this person can be able to love one another more, than their own life

For another, Love has other definitions

I feel, that the most important must be to love one self, before we are able to love another soul with an open and honest heart. For me, this is some of a place to reach

I find it also very important to teach our kids to love themselves and that they always are worth loving. No matter, what they do, they are lovable. Sometimes we need to show our kids the way, which often works much better, than only by talking about it. Don’t be scared to tell and show your kids the way, then learn much more by, what they see, you are doing

We do all learn by life and learn by own experiences. We do acts, as are not the best choices, but they are ours, we own them, and we are responsible for these choices. If we are acting in less good ways, the only one, who are able to change this, is one selves

We are only responsible for our own life and can not blame others, if our life is going in a way, as we don’t wish it to. No one can read our thoughts, even many would like them to or even expect them to do so. Then we need to look inside and find out, which way will be the right one for us and then ACT at this. Everything else is just dreaming…

As I have mentioned before, life is, what we make out of it. Live out your dreams, don’t ever expect others to live out your dreams. No matter, how old we are, it is never too late to do something to change our circumstances. We just need to find out, what is most important for us in our life, then think deeply about this and find out, what is needed to do, for being able to change, so we can live our life, as we – until now – only have been dreaming about

Any relationship should be build at mutual respect and a kind of love. Without mutual respect it is difficult to build any kind of healthy relationship, whatever it is as a lover or a friend. The more long time, as we know each other, the more we get to know about each other. Something are very lovable and other things not

It is different, how we are developing inside a relationship. Either we are developing in same direction and the love are growing day by day, which is wonderful, when this is possible

In many relationships, we are developing in different ways, either because of job, more or new education, friends or interests. While we are young, the world seems to be open and full of possibilities. It is not always easy to choose the right path and other we change our path several times, before we find out, where we wish to stay and live in this life. While all this is going on, we can look at our friends and see, some are staying where they chose to be for many years ago, they are still there, others has been changing their path many times and some have still not found their way of life yet. When we are in a relationship for love, we do still learn new every day, if we wish to and sometimes we do develop in each direction by time. One day we might find out, that this relationship is not, what we would like it to be. We are now too different and might also have different ways of living our dream life. This can end up with a break in the relationship, which often will be the best of all involved, even there are also kids involved

If we wish to teach our kids to live and stay honest to themselves, we do also need to do exactly the same to ourselves. This is also, what they learn by and to stay in a relationship only because you have kids together, is often a bad solution

We wish all the best for our kids, this is also why, we need to teach them to live our life in love to ourselves and I don’t mean this in an egoistic way. If we teach our kids to love themselves, they will be strong enough to choose for themselves later in life, to live in a healthy and loving relationship and don’t stay in a place, where they are not able to feel alive any longer

I have been changing my path many times in my life. I have followed my dreams many times, not all went well, but I learned a lot by this, which I can use to take better choices for the rest of this life. I hope by this, to have taught my kids to live a loving life, where they are able to develop themselves and no one are allowed to stop them in this. To live and love with mutual respect
