Camino Encounters Metal book is the first book in a series of five books. It describes the time that I spent in a hospital in Porto, in the summer of 2017. The whole experience tested my ability to get through and survive, as I feared for my life. I wish I had not had to pay such a high price for this knowledge. But, would I have listened? I believe I learnt the hard way because a soft approach does not belong in the metal environment. Metal does not bend naturally. It can be as hard as steel and how else to cut through this other than with a razor-sharp knife?

Camino Encounters Metal book is the first in a series of five books.
According to the Nine Star Ki, an ancient Oriental teaching, I am a metal person. There was a great need to break through the boundaries and achieve flexibility but also acceptance. Fortunately, I am blessed with inexhaustible endurance, I do not give up and I never give in! Those are my vows when it comes to living life. But, these where put to the ultimate test in Porto. And that is not the first time in my life. Surviving has become my expertise over the past 17 years by caring for my terminally ill husband whilst raising our two daughters and keeping a roof above our heads.
The metal element stands on one hand for grief and on the other hand for courage. Perhaps you can imagine if you choose not to allow grief to surface but to pursue by bravely stepping forth, that this will create an imbalance. It is important that grief and courage alternate. Grief is a response to loss and missing somebody or something. We need to feel this in depth to allow us to go on. Somehow a metal person knows when to say goodbye and go on, he or she can make choices. I am metal but I had to learn this lesson the hard way. Nevertheless, it gave me a very valuable insight. Loss of control was the biggest challenge for me it took me way out of my comfort zone but it also brought me home.
