Weird Week

by Sophie May 9, 2015 Grounding

It’s been a weird energetic week for many of us. Strangeness seems to be going around, with old issues raising their heads unexpectedly. Sometimes it feels nearly punitive for no good reason. Many are also finding it difficult to stay centered and grounded, even the practiced veterans. I am not sure what is causing this […]

When You Trust Your Spiritual Teacher

by Sophie September 1, 2014 Awakening

Many years ago, when I was in my twenties and before I had children, I had a Tibetan Buddhist teacher in Oxford (England). I trusted her, admired her and was willing to learn from her. She felt familiar to me. I accepted her presence and practices as soothing and helpful. I had not started remembering […]

8/8 Connect with the Goddess

by Sophie August 8, 2014 Blessing

8/8 in my world is one of the most powerful days of the year to connect with the Divine Feminine. How? Drop and Roll. Drop all expectations, goals, constructs, fears. Drop into the moment. Be completely present in the here and now. Just be. Now. Each instant is a portal to the infinite. By dropping […]

The Truth Being Revealed

by Sophie July 28, 2014 Divine Feminine

Last week was all about the truth being revealed. It was not about righting wrongs. It was just about the truth being revealed. So the things that worked well showed themselves in their beauty and the things that were broken or needed to be changed also showed themselves as they are. I heard as many […]

Does It Make Sense To Be At One With The Divine?

by Sophie October 1, 2012 Blessing

Yesterday a friend and I were discussing what it feels like to be at one with the divine. He  wrote: “You are speaking about what you’ve experienced. I’m speaking in a theoretical sense, but naturally I feel pretty strongly about what makes sense to me.” What I told him is that I am happy to […]

Spring is an Opportunity to Trust and Surrender

by Sophie April 7, 2012 Attunements

This Easter and Passover time of year seems to bring issues of power, control and surrender to the next level. I think it is because in the Northern hemisphere where the rituals originated, what we are really celebrating is Spring and the renewal of  life. We are thinking about fertility and abundant crops that will […]

I Am Enough

by Sophie October 12, 2011 Emotions

The Harvest Moon in September was the real New Year, energetically. This year’s growing season was over and we had harvested. I am told the New Year used to be in October in the Northern hemisphere. So now we are in an in-between state where I feel like clearing and cleaning a lot and reflecting […]

Why Has Sophie Been So Quiet?

by Sophie June 8, 2011 Angels

Why have I been so quiet? I last posted here on May 10, nearly a month ago! So what’s been going on?! There was a lot going on energetically (universal awakening and ascension energies), emotionally (healing old wounds as well as family stuff, kids growing up and changing, kind of stuff) and spiritually (my own […]

With the Help of my Friends

by Sophie February 19, 2011 Depression

Last week just after I wrote Unusual Fear and Sadness, friends started appearing, on FB, in person, by email and on the phone who gave me the warm human support I needed to feel safe and to relax, trust and surrender. One of my main symptoms had been a massive migraine headache, which lasted for […]

Unusual Fear and Sadness

by Sophie February 10, 2011 Depression

A FaceBook post from the wonderful Sue O’Kieffe just reminded me that I have not been the only one struggling in the past week. Sue called the day ‘weird’. A friend of hers said she had one of her worst, visceral panic attack last night, that receded like a tide later on. Another chimed in […]
