I know everyone talks about this book and for a good reason, too. This book is full of wisdom. And everytime I read it, I take something new away from it.
The Alchemist is a story about the power of our dreams. We come across so many materials and books about the law of attraction and manifestation. This book gives us an example of what that journey might look like. And the journey is not perfect for the main character. Nowhere near perfect. And that is what makes so many of us feel connected to this book. Our imperfect lives and how so often, our dreams seem so far away.
It reminds us to believe in our dreams, remain true to ourselves and always come back to the truth in our hearts, regardless of our external circumstances.
The book also talks about omens, which could also be expressed as signs or little intuitive nudgings that we all experience as we navigate through life. Coelho suggests that these omens are pointing us in the right direction, guiding us to the next step that we would have to take, in order to move closer to tasting our dreams.
There is so much to say about this book, but I am not sure that I can possibly say something that has not already been said. But I can say this, if you want to read something that will help you to believe in the power of staying true to your dreams, get your hands on this book and have a good, slow read.
Then you decide if it speaks to your soul.
