Both The Alchemist and "Colors of the Wind" from Disney's Pocahontas tell that it is important to pay attention to the world around you and base your decisions on your observations.
Omens play an important role in The Alchemist, leading Santiago to his goal, if he is wise enough to read and interpret the signs. On Pocahontas's journey she goes to Grandmother Willow to understand the meaning of a dream, similar to how Santiago sees the Gypsy woman. Throughout the film, Pocahontas sees things that were in her dream. The clouds in her dream turn out to be the white sails of a ship, and the spinning arrow is the arrow of a compass. When she sees these signs, she knows that she is on the right path to her Personal Legend.
