This is the story of Brida, a young Irish girl, and her quest for knowledge. She has long been interested in various aspects of magic but is searching for so. As Brida seeks her destiny, she struggles to find a balance between her relationships and her desire to Veronika Decides to Die is a novel by Paulo Coelho.
He sat down on the highest point and asked Brida to do the same. The Magus, however, showed no sign of irritation when he spoke again. I see no contradiction between my search and my personal happiness, she said.
Brida By Paulo Coelho
Look at me, said the Magus. Brida felt ashamed, but did as he asked. You told the truth.
I will be your Teacher. So what is magic? And how can I learn to cross that bridge? By discovering your own way of crossing it. Everyone has their own way. Start your free 30 days.
Page 1 of 1. Love, love, love! As all of the books I've read by Coelho have, this one hit all of the right chords for me. The story of a woman on a search for what spirituality is and can be, what form her relationships should take, and the exploration of mysticism in today's world I appreciated the various mentors that came into Brida's life, proving that no one person can be everything for us.
No one teacher can explain everything. No one love should be expected to fulfill us. Her experiences showed that momentary love is just as important to personal growth as is lasting and domestic love. The mix of mysticism and Christianity is rare in writing today, and I thoroughly appreciated the way that this juxtaposition was portrayed.
Nothing wrong, working jointly, and to the betterment of all those who seek this path. This book makes you think about relationships, magic and love. It is not nearly what The Alchemist was, but is an easy and good read. Being the story of a woman on a journey of self-discovery, who finds spirituality through magic, this book provides some guidance to those seeking a "Christ-Witch" path.
Decidedly one of Coelho's best works! I am back, now, for the fifth or sixth read and am still uncovering new magical nuggets.
Always eye-opening and inspiring, it's easy reading length makes it a priceless treasure on my library shelf.
While it isn't a sequel to the saccharine simplicity of a journeyman alchemist my first read and still a favorite from Coelho , and certainly not just another best selling 'novel' from a best selling author, "Brida" offers opportunities to reach beyond a necessary but superficial story line to gain glimpses of the infinite, using techniques that endure long after the last page. It is a 'magic' book. It is a book filled with lessons of life.
I would suggest you guys to read it. It would change your perspective.: My best friend gave it to me as a present for my birthday. It is a very good read: Deep and spiritual so not for people who don't get the underlines or are used to some time passing novels.
I absolutely love this book, it is so full of magic and love It is definitely one of my favorite Coelho's books! It is a book which I consider to be spiritual; but I can well see how someone else may call it a romance or a book about witchcraft. If you were to summarize it in one sentence it'd have to be that the book is about finding yourself and your place in the world. Anyone who has read Paulo Coelho knows that his stories are often fantastical tales that center on the mysteries of the spirit.
Brida is the story of a woman on a journey of self-discovery who finds spirituality through magic. There were some definite surprises in this book. For example, sex is used as a means of obtaining spiritual power. After having read his explanation in the afterword I guess I can understand where he was going with that but it was a bit of a shock to the system when I actually read it in the context of the story.
Without giving too much away I can say that there are two different sides to the 'magical coin': The Tradition of the Moon and the Tradition of the Sun. By studying either of these the individual is opening themselves up to God and all that He created. I liked it but in my opinion The Alchemist was far and away more powerful. If you're interested in his take on magic vs spirituality vs religion then I encourage you to give this book a try but if you're only reading it because you liked The Alchemist oops then you might be in for a shock.
Although not familiar with a Wicca or a Magus, I became comfortably accepting of their presence in Brida's journey. Brida is a witch. She comes to the Wicca and the Magus to widen her circle of wisdom and knowledge. Her growth path became exciting and stimulated my imagination. Paulo Coelho easily strengthens those without understanding not to fear but to take up a blue cloak of bravery and to dance in your aura. I especially enjoyed his call to nature. I know with more surety that the sky, flowers, meadows are God's free gift to me.
All I have to do is drink it in. Shame can not keep us from experiencing it. Mistakes can not keep us from experiencing it because shame, mistakes are all a part of the goblet we must drink from without hesitation to enjoy the dance of life. Nothing is bad in life. All is good that comes to us.
I loved the part where Brida dances naked. She's totally free and unashamed welcoming love into her life. In Brida. Love is shared in one way or another page by page. When Brida dances without inhibition she is welcoming love. Love is "the bridge to the visible and the invisible". As for the Magus, he will meet his soul mate again and again through the magical turning of the universe. So Brida had to leave and return to her other soul mate, Lorens.
I was afraid to read Brida. I started it. Then, restarted it. I had to relax my mind, body and spirit. Then, the story just flowed. I read it with a sense of peace. I think it is impossible to read Paulo Coelho with an anxious spirit.
His novel, Brida, definitely can not be read with a spirit of hate or bitterness. It must be read with a spirit of 'I will accept what is here. I feel more bravery now after reading Brida. I feel more self acceptance, and "That's a good thing. The author encouraged me by writing every person has a special gift.
That gift is an instrument to be used for God's glory. I am looking forward to my next journey inside myself with this author, Paulo Coelho. I really liked this at first. It raised several questions I had never thought about before.

Then it just became tiresome. It didn't move along at a very good pace and I found myself just wishing it would end. At times it felt like I was reading about myself and my personal journey and the constant battles I encounter on staying on my path. All of Paulo books are written with compassion and insight which never ceases to touch my soul. Coelho is confused. This book was a huge disappointment. I always hesitated to read it, but didn't know why.
Now I do. Yes, Coelho is a skilled writer. Beautiful phrases, great one-liners too The god that is talked about is not the pagan god. I'm sorry to say, but this story has nothing to do with witchcraft as I know it. Either this book is too deep for me or it is just all made up and makes no sense.
I usuallly love his books but this is not one I woudl recommened. I picked up Brida because I am absolutely in love with The Alchemist, and I was a little disappointed. I thought Brida was a very good book, but it is much more heavy-handed in its life lessons, whereas The Alchemist doles out evenly along with story. All in all, it was a little more ethereal than my taste generally runs, but I still enjoyed the book.
I seek out books where the story is set in Ireland, but I have to say that this book was a disappointment. All fluff, no substance.
Young girl is seeking for hers identity and she founds wicca as the way of life. There are information of wicca traditions and I have to seek for more of it in books of Scott Cunninghamn.
Brida is written same way, what Cunninghamn tells in his books. Is he telling us the tradition of wicca, or is he telling us the growing of young girl?
Ofcourse finding your identity goes in a way Coelho tells to his readers. The wicca as motive is quite popular in the world and maybe this motive sells good. As a reading experiance the motive and plot is very thin. I was always snotty about Paulo Coelho and I take it back, he's perfectly readable, even if he is no Turgenev - he's not a bad writer.
Book very boring though, unless you're interested in magic, and even then it warns, that magic rituals are described out of context and must not be imitated, rather, tuition sought.
So why waste the second two thirds on descriptions of magic rituals? It's fine, if not my bag especially, until then, then it gets boring. As I hadn't heard of it but I have many of his other books, and as the problem is the plot dead end, I imagine some of his other books are a good read, so try 'The Alchemist' or something. I liked it, its a light read. The pacing is not that fast. As the author Paulo Coelho dwells more on life's stories and self discoveries.
You will still find this an interesting read and learn something from the story as the characters are torn into decisions on goal-setting, destiny, love, responsibility. This was a strange little book, a peculiar and sometimes flat story of a young woman seeking out two spiritual advisors on two not entirely different paths.
It was a story of students and teachers, of searching, faith and soul mates.
I've read some angry reviews over the mix of Wicca and Christianity used in this story, but I've known people who considered themselves to be following both paths, so that didn't throw me too much.
This wasn't a wildly inspiring story or a page turner at all really, but it was still somehow a satisfying read in a way I can't quite put my finger on. One of the teachers in this story uses a technique with her student where she sets her focus, and then rambles on and on in a quiet and mundane manner, setting the student's mind adrift in a sort of hallucinatory meditation or scrying exercise. It seems that Coelho does the same for the reader with this book, setting up a few ideas and then pulling the reader gently through a quiet story while the subconscious is encouraged to wander.
The book didn't leave me with any profound concepts, ideas or revelations, but then it hasn't really left me yet either. It was a strange but not at all unpleasant read. Not nearly as brilliant as The Alchemist, I enjoyed Brida but left feeling disappointed after his Coehlo's brilliance in some of his other books. Brida is a young Irish woman on a quest to find her true self which leads her to the practice of Wicca and modern day witches.
I suppose the point of the story was really about soul mates and true love but it didn't have the punch I was looking for.
