Camino Magic

If you don’t believe in Magic you may not be the person to read this post

While walking Camino I always set an Intention and aim to trust my intuition to guide me along the way.

For the most part, I live on the guidance of my Intuition, however, recently I had been questioning everything. My head is very good at getting the better of me from time to time. I was having a little meltdown (past Pilgrims understand) for those of you yet to walk Camino these are usually moments of release. Grief, realisation, clarity, or sometimes sheer frustration among many other reasons.

Fear led to this Camino Magic Moment.

During my meltdown, Judith, a dear friend of mine who had recently passed, and my Mother, also passed came flooding into my mind. The thought of how they would love to have this moment, to be alive, to feel, to be walking alongside me on Camino de Santiago. At that moment I felt angry for being selfish and not trusting in life.

I asked out loud, Ok you two if everything is on track then I want a sign!!

Hmmm, what could I ask for?

As I looked at the distance the thought came, a heart cloud, NO, two heart clouds sitting side by side in the sky, one each … ha! If I should continue on this path of trusting my Intuition and believing in Magic if you can even hear me I am sure you can manage that!

I then desperately spent the day looking for hearts.

Phone in hand capturing hundreds of photos of clouds, finally arriving at my hotel defeated.

I was annoyed that I asked for 2 hearts, why not 1, maybe that would have been easier? I had to relax and let go. After a shower, rest, and a beautiful meal with some of our newly found Camino family, I was relaxed forgetting all about the clouds. At 10.30 pm we walked out into the street to witness a beautiful sunset, my partner suggested we walk to a field at the end of the street to witness the full beauty of it.

With my camera in hand, I began to click away.

I laughed then cried … right before my eyes were the two heart clouds, side by side in the sky!

So you can clearly see them
Trust just Trust …  I heard them say!

Thank you Camino Magic, just what I needed to hear to keep me on track and it tied in beautifully with my Camino Intention. I love the way the Camino surprises me and never fails me even if I don’t like the way it delivers.

Buen Camino!!!
