This blog was originally about two girls who began to pilgrimage on the 20th of June of 2013, walking from Sigtuna, Sweden, with the goal to reach Santiago de Compostela in the northwestern part of Spain.
The journey stopped sometime in September of 2013, and will hopefully continue in the future.

Everyone is a pilgrim

Hi everyone!

I have had a hard time finding internet connection the last two days, and even so inspiration to write. I'm happy this happend at the same time so that I could rest and wait for my heart to speak.

We are approching the pilgrims town Vadstena,  and we feel excited. Both of us have been to Vadstena before, but not as walking pilgrims, therefore it is special to us. We are planning to reach Vadstena on wednesday, and then we will have a one-day break  in this spiritually idyllic little town. And we hope we will meet other walking pilgrims there too, because we havn't yet. I say walking pilgrims since I really believe everyone is a pilgrim, every day, throughout our lives. Doing a pilgrimage is like being on a journey,  mental or physical,  or why not both at the same time, united? We are constantly traveling and searching for our believes and for ourselves. For a while we feel satisfied with ourselves and our existence. Our heart get time to rest and reflect. But then cold winds blow away everything we thought we knew and had faith in,  at the same time as the sun is warming up our whole existence. Doubts hit us. Am I being true to myself or am I just acting?
Inside of us we can feel like a stormy sea or like a field of wheat moving from side to side, randomly out of order. Our lives are like one big and constant pilgrimage, sun, dirt, endless roads, great mountains, sweet taste of strawberries.  Ups and downs. But we must try not to fear it. Moving closer to it. Breathing it all in..

Tomorrow we hope we will be able to watch Sweden play against Italy. Go ladies!! I will walk 20 km for you tomorrow as a manifestation!

Hope you have had a nice day and that when you go to bed tonight, you will feel happy and satisfied knowing that Love will always guide you. It won't let you down. Never.

LOVE and PEACE,
