I’m sure many of you have asked yourselves this question What reasons do people have for doing the Camino de Santiago? Why is it such a fulfilling experience for everyone who does it?
We all know someone who has done the Camino de Santiago and has recommended it actively and passively to everyone close to them. In this article we will try to reveal to you some secrets of this unique experience, but you will really have to encourage yourself to discover them for yourselfand you’ll understand that everything you’ve been told really pales in comparison to what you’ve experienced.
Are you ready to discover the MAGIC of the Camino de Santiago?
Ehe Camino embraces you and frees youand this is something that most pilgrims agree on. Everyone starts their journey with two backpacks, one in which they keep their clothes and personal belongings, and the other, much heavier, full of day-to-day problems, unanswered questions, longings and dreams to be fulfilled… each and every one of the little things that, without realizing it, we drag along over the years and do not let us be completely happy.
As you leave kilometers behind in each of the stages, many of those “stones” that accompany you will also fall little by little, you will stop giving importance to many things, walking more and more light and free of worries.
This is the healing power of the Camino de Santiago.
It is said that you don’t make the Camino, but the Camino makes you. Even if you decide to make the trip with your family or friends, even if you meet a lot of people along the way and make new friendships, in reality it is a journey with yourself, a journey of introspection. in which you rediscover yourself, recovering all your energy and vitality. In our daily lives we are always more concerned about others than about ourselves, and we don’t usually give ourselves enough time to get to know ourselves. But throughout the days you will have a lot of time to think, to engage in conversations with yourself that perhaps you would never have thought of before, so you will get to know yourself more and you will get rid of all those barriers and limits that were only in your mind, ending the trip completely renewed.
