Walk in Spain in April – 9 Photos


Almond tree 1

Today I will show you some photos from our daily walks here in our part of Spain. Here you see a blooming Almond Tree

Almond tree 2

It went very fast after the blooming of the Almond Trees, until the new almonds were visible

Almond tree 3

A little more close to see here

Almond tree 4

I found some shadow here, why this photo looks more dark

Odin

Odin love to run free here

Borage 1

We have lots of Borage in natural areas, where no one take care any longer

Borage 2

I did grow Borage, while I lived in Denmark. I used the beautiful blue flowers in salad, they are eatable and taste good. More than that, they are also nutritious

Borage 3

I find these Borage so beautiful, they show clearly the spring is arrived here, even we have grey clouds at the sky today. I will not complain, we have had beautiful sunshine and warm weather for a while now and I do often enjoy my food outside in the midday

Wild flowers 1

There are many Wild Flowers in these areas and I love to see them blooming, all look so promising with hopes for long and sunny days

I hope, that you enjoyed our walk

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

I love these waves and enjoy to stand and just watch the sea
