Valkyries Novel by Paulo Coelho (5- conclusion) post by Ranu
To see his angel ,Paulo needed to do three things:1. break a pact, 2. accept forgiveness,3. make a bet.
To meet his angel Paulo needed help from Valkyries. He promised he’ll never raise his hand against himself. He promised in the name of St. Michael,only God’s hand will be responsible for everything. He would have to come out of darkness to break the pact.
He found the door that led him to the shining sun.Next step for Paulo was to accept forgiveness.Paulo could not forgive because he had hatred in his heart and therefore he thought he was unworthy of seeing his angel.Rotha the young Valkyrie couldn’t see her angel because she had fear in her heart.Valhalla the eldest Valkyrie put them together to help each other.Paulo was able to forgive and Rotha conquered fear.Paulo was glad he met two out of three conditions.The last one to make a bet was simple.He almost failed the third,his angel’s protection prevailed during channeling,he was able to speak with the angels! he realized then he will see his angel because he met the third condition.
I found the book interesting.There were a lot of rituals,and magic.I at times found it confusing.I didn’t understand the whole thing by reading only once.There are instances there which makes me wonder,whether I comprehended it fully.
The author himself admitted having difficulty writing it from beginning to end.
