Today I led a grounding and chakra opening practice for a friend. It was just what the universe prescribed. I took her outside to practice her Earth Connection with the Infinite and told her she needed to communicate more. Then did lion’s breath away from her telling her she needed to release. Then I had her choose a card and she chose Volcano. Then I proceeded to read to her about the Volcano Kilauea. Which Ironically has erupted today. We didn’t know that until I saw it before she left. The universe knows. It is all lined up. Magic is everywhere!!!
Ceremonialist and Reiki Healer
Sophia grew up in sunny Southern California, frequenting the beaches and hiking in the golden hills before making the big move to North Carolina, where she calls Durham her home now with her husband of 15 years and three young children. Her hobbies involve working with ceramics, in which the shaping of clay with one’s own hands is profoundly grounding, concocting new soap recipes, cooking,hiking, and road trips. Having an affinity with the natural world and its healing benefits and mysteries, Sophia pursued her master training in energy work in Costa Mesa under the tutelage of Ariel Hubbard and ceremonial work with The Fellowship of the Illumination. She then taught Reiki levels one and two and has attuned many students into the modality. She then went on to receive her license in massage and bodywork. Most of her life has been immersed in sacred rituals from intimate gatherings to large, collaborative ones, holding sacred space for those that need it. From tea ceremonies to women’s circles, Sophia enjoys sharing her constantly evolving path with others.
