This week Tchipakkan and her guest Deb CoyoteSkyWoman will be discussing the best seller The Alchemist on The New Normal on www.liveparanormal.com.

CoyoteSkyWoman, has been a member of the New England Pagan community for the last 30 years, and she has been a practicing shaman for only a little bit longer than that. She works closely with the trickster spirit, Coyote, and has worked with The Sagefire Fellowship and A Sacred Place since their inceptions. A frequent speaker at the Changing Times-Changing Worlds conference, she has spoken on Tricksters, Channeling, Modern and Historical Paganism, and our relationship with the Devine and the Land.
Wednesday we’ll be talking about a powerful book, the Alchemist, written by Paulo Coelho and fist published in 1988. This novel is about a quest by an Andelusian Shepherd, Santiago.
Among the bits of wisdom in this allegory is the idea of your Personal Legend. Your Personal Legend “is what you have always wanted to accomplish. Everyone, when they are young, knows what their Personal Legend is.” also that “when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
Whether you’ve read the book yet or not, the concepts are fascinating.

Fate Destiny and Wyrd Panel
The Greeks would ask the Pythia, and the Romans the Sybil to tell them what their fate was, and while she would speak accurately, their words were often misunderstood and those attempting to escape their fate created it. The Norse felt that a man’s wyrd was set, and how he met it was the test of his character, yet a person’s luck could be taken from him and given to someone else. Palmists call the line running from your wrist to your fingers your Fate or Destiny line- but what is Fate/Destiny/Weird? If things aren’t predestined, how does prophesy work? Different Christian denominations consider the variations of the predestination question incredibly important articles of faith. How does your spiritual path (collectively or personally) view destiny?
