SPANISH SHRINES

NERJA by KRISS on 30 october 2015

When there is a will there is a way and maybe everywhere on this planet I have always managed to find spirituality, hope, some divine connection because I am not too fussy.
Be it a buddhist temple or a shrine in Japan, a church in Europe or the nature anywhere around me.
I tend to avoid big cities, except for short trips, for that same reason, very little connects me to anything spiritual there and it is something I don’t like.

Right now in Spain, there is plenty to rejoice about because people are actually very much into their religious beliefs and when the place is not thriving with some religious event and there are many and all of them seem to be very important, very much attended and enjoyed by everyone.
So when this is not happening, there are churches or little shrines to find peace and just give a word, a prayer, a token, a wish, your soul.

These shrines remind me a little Shrine Kate and I came across on the island of La Digue in Seychelles and which really moved me.

Sometimes places can inexplicably trigger something deep inside you and either make you feel completely at ease, at home, or the opposite.
That place in Seychelles moved me in a positive way.

Here in Nerja I have my favorite church and even if it’s home of the Maria de las angustias which means the mother of fears and anguish, I just go there because the place attracts me.

Yesterday, a couple of friends, Claire and Peters kindly invited us to their little Buddha Shrine they have in their gardens.
He protects travelers, as they used to be great adventurers and we felt lucky and blessed to be invited to their place and to leave a little stone at their shrine.
The place couldn't get my focus one second though because of the beauty surrounding the shrine.
Think I could have sat there with the shrine behind me, looking at what this little Buddha had before his eyes for the whole day !

Do you also have your own shrines ?
