Valkyries Novel by Paulo Coelho (Book Report) (4) Post by Ranu
I didn’t realize how much time and effort one needs to give to write a book report.This one I am doing right now is a bit more complex than any other I’ve done.
I’ve come to the part where Paulo’s master J., has given him a task.He is supposed to break the curse.To do this he has to meet with another master,who lives in the Mohave desert.He is Gene. Although no more than twenty Gene is a very smart person.
Gene was not quite thrilled to see Paulo’s wife .Later on he realizes,he cannot teach Paulo directly.There is an unwritten tradition a master cannot teach another master’s disciple. With this in mind ,he shifts his attention to Chris the wife. He makes her aware of the second mind. Second mind is at work whether the person wants it or not. For an instance one could be busy at work,the second mind would remind the person about a song or something else which has nothing to do with the work this person is doing.Next he tells her to look at the horizon. Gene leaves and tells them he will be back in a couple of days. In the meantime Paulo explains a few things to his wife to increase her knowledge and make sure she is interested. Paulo helps her to expand her vision and see how much change takes place. Chris started to pay attention to things in the distance,she began to notice a lot of things which she normally wouldn’t .
Chris was excited about meeting Gene again. She looked at the horizon and kept her eyes fixed on it whenever possible.It was simple to do this,there was a strange feeling , she felt better,freer,as if her internal energy had increased.Chris regretted not taking a more intense interest in her husband’s conspiracy. Rituals were meant for those who were disciplined.She began to feel her soul has grown. Also knew how to look in the distance and not things close to her only.Even without wanting to could feel her soul had grown.She felt relaxed and free.
Gene knew Paulo had come in search of his angel. He said everyone can make contact with four different entities in the invisible world: the elementals,the disembodied spirits,the saints and the angels.He described the elementals such as fire,water and air_ we contact them as rituals.The disembodied spirits ,we make contact with them by means of a medium. What they teach us can be learned on earth.By looking at the horizon and take the same wisdom as they did.
Gene’s guardian angel told him in his dream to initiate the woman into the path of magic and let the husband do the rest. After the disembodied spirits come the saints.They are the true masters he said.They lived among us and now they are closer to the lights. All we can do is to initiate them. He said we can invoke them through prayer.Finally he said there are the angels.Angels are made of love.
Paulo realized ,Gene left out the fourth process. The fourth process Paulo said is communicating with the invisible world which is channeling.
To be able to see his angel, Paulo needed help from the Valkyries. He met them at the gas station. One of them was a red-haired haughty woman,she made her presence known by her loud voice.She at once noticed Paulo’s ring and wanted to know where he bought it. Paulo told her the same place where she bought her brooch. Paulo told her ,he wanted to speak to his angel and something else. Valkyrie told him he didn’t know how to speak with angels, through channeling was the reply.She said that is all he needs to speak with his angel. Paulo told her he needed to see his angel,because he needed help.There are important things he won , but feels they have lost their meaning. It is not true and if he destroys them he will be destroyed. His master wanted him to break the curse in order to keep his love alive. Paulo needed three things to see the angel; “Break a pact,Accept forgiveness,and Make a bet’.
