The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
From it’s first printing more than 20 years ago, I fell in love with this tale of Santiago, an Andalusian shepherd boy who yearns to travel in search of a worldly treasure as extravagant as any ever found. It never grows old and reminds me to listen to my heart!
The story of the treasures Santiago finds along his journey teaches us, as only a few stories can, about the essential wisdom of listening to our hearts, learning to read the omens strewn along life’s path, and, above all, following our dreams.
Once a year, I pick up my well-loved copy, fraying and torn at the edges, and immerse myself back in the magical unfolding of synchronicities, as a deep reminder of the Divine Love frequency that exists all around us, but we simply just forget.
