Welcome to Namaste This with Sally Claridge, a channel and healer who doesn’t do normal. This is my real life blog sharing the ups and downs, highs, lows, break throughs and WTF moments as myself, My Gorgeous Man and our beloved rescue greyhound Sir Maxelot, left a conventional life in Scotland and followed our hearts to move into off grid life in the Alpujarra mountains in Southern Spain.
It's been a while... but I'm back! And we're still standing... still loving life in the Alpujarras... and still riding the waves of Spanish bureaucracy! This time, it all came down to Brexit...
From the high of running our Open Your Cosmic Heart retreat, to running around our land in PJs trying to stop the massive flood from our neighbours water deposit onto our vegetable patch to the realization that there can never be anything other than a Land Rover. Never a dull moment here in the Alpujarras.
From mysterious online disappearances to behind the scene dramas, steep learning curves and the surprise reappearance of the humungous and infamous Mr Toad... there's never a dull moment in the Spanish Alpujarras!
From rushed bureaucracy, medical tests, documents, strong coffee, burnt olive branches and potatoes, to the bliss of a sunset that heals all... and a new global healing movement of 'Saying YES to the Alpujarras and Mother Earth.'
The harsh reality of life up in the Spanish Alpujarra mountains really kicks in when you are on your own and there are wild storms raging around you, your dog hurts himself and it all just gets too much... especially when you then go and try to pay your parking ticket for a little bit of light relief...
Off grid life in the Spanish Alpujarra mountains is a roller coaster ride of highs, lows, miracles and trust... come and join me as I share straight from my heart, what has been going down over the last few days...
