Breakdowns Are Good

The general consensus is that breakdowns are bad. Unwanted, unpleasant, destructive, damaging, disruptive. Nobody likes them. Of course. Nor do we invite them in. But when a nervous breakdown happens, is it really the end of the world? or is it a chance to build anew? What is broken needs to be built again and this time we can build differently. Maybe the first time around we did not have so much of a choice. Maybe this time we can do better because we know better.

I really think that a breakdown is God/the Universe giving us a chance to let the Light shine through the crack.

When we rebuild we can examine each building block and decide if we want to keep it or not during the healing process. What we decide to push out of our habits or consciousness makes space for the new.

So now is a great chance to ask for help, to allow yourself to receive support and heal to create the you that you really want, with a different intention. A peaceful, joyful you!

From Le Petit Prince, Chapitre IV

Mais personne ne l'avait cru à cause de son costume. Les grandes personnes sont comme ça.
Le Petit prince
Heureusement, pour la réputation de l'astéroide B 612 un dictateur turc imposa à son peuple, sous peine de mort, de s'habiller à l'Européenne. L'astronome refit se démonstration en 1920, dans un habit très élégant. Et cette fois-ci tout le monde fut de son avis.
Le Petit prince
Si je vous ai raconté ces détails sur l'astéroide B 612 et si je vous ai confié son numéro, c'est à cause des grandes personnes. Les grandes personnes aiment les chiffres. Quand vous leur parlez d'un nouvel ami, elles ne vous questionnent jamais sur l'essentiel. Elles ne vous disent jamais: "Quel est le son de sa voix? Quels sont les jeux qu'il préfère? Est-ce qu'il collectionne les papillons?" Elles vous demandent: "Quel âge a-t-il? Combien a-t-il de frères? Combien pèse-t-il? Combien gagne son père?" Alors seulement elles croient le connaître. Si vous dites aux grandes personnes: "J'ai vu une belle maison en briques roses, avec des géraniums aux fenêtres et des colombes sur le toit…" elles ne parviennent pas à s'imaginer cette maison. Il faut leur dire: "J'ai vu une maison de cent mille francs." Alors elles s'écrient: "Comme c'est joli!"
Ainsi, si vous leur dites: "La preuve que le petit prince a éxisté c'est qu'il était ravissant, et qu'il voulait un mouton. Quand on veut un mouton, c'est la preuve qu'on existe" elles hausseront les épaules et vous traiteront d'enfant! Mais si vous leur dites: "La planète d'où il venait est l'astéroide B 612" alors elles seront convincues, et elles vous laisseront tranquille avec leurs questions. Elles sont comme ça. Il ne faut pas leur en vouloir. les enfants doivent être très indulgents envers les grandes personnes.

Angel Presence

I learned several years ago that whatever I go through spiritually is a reflection of what is going on 'in the universe'. I obviously go with the general flow.

So considering the visits, feelings and messages I have been having for the past 10 days I will say that ANGELS and ARCHANGELS are VERY present at the moment (See my post earlier this week). In large numbers and making themselves very accessible. This is being confirmed by friends and other healers. It is clear that we currently need protection because we are on the move again and in the process of changing deeply again.

I am feeling very inspired, my guidance is crystal clear.
I am very connected to others, to the whole, to Oneness. I can feel what others feel more than ever before. I think something and it will come out of someone else's mouth within the hour, several times a day. I ask a question and the answer appears, in an email, a tweet or an article, that day. Same old thing, but FASTER and CLEARER.

What is this transformation about?

  • looking after ourselves properly. Sounds simple, right? But pay close attention to that one as it is the foundation for everything else in our lives
  • taking responsibility for what we have created, are creating and will create
  • being shown how much of an illusion time and space are, if we are open to it

I think that right now in our human time, the ETERNAL NOW is open to those who know how to access it, more easily than ever before in the history of creation unfolding. The Creator is asking for our input. We are the Creator as well as its Creation unfolding and now is the time to take responsibility for our every action, thought and wish.

Think positive thoughts only and humbly remind each other daily!

Things that keep me going: Inspiration

I am often asked how I keep going.

The first thing I do is to constantly look for inspiration.

1- My main inspiration comes from the Divine, of course.

It comes to me through:
  • angels
  • guidance
  • other healers' readings, sessions and advice
  • dreams
  • walking meditation
  • sitting meditation
  • trusted friends' comments
  • Reiki sessions I give myself
  • prayer (which is more of a request for me than an open meditation)
How do I receive the messages from angels and guides?

Mostly I FEEL that I should do something. Go somewhere, enter a store, pick up a book from my shelf at home, phone someone, post a specific tweet at a certain time. Or I feel what another person is feeling.

If I missed the subtle feeling, the information will come as a VERY CLEAR VOICE. It's not always the same voice, because it's not always from the same guide or angel. But those voices have a clarity, authority, tone that are very specific, recognizable and different from my 'inner chatter'.

After years of resisting hearing those voices and being plagued by migraine headaches, I eventually gave in; the migraines disappeared overnight & life is so much easier with someone, who knows better, telling me what to do!

Recently I have been having more KINESTHETIC EXPRERIENCES. Yesterday I felt as if I was being gently pushed towards my bookcase. It felt like an archangel's wing. Large, very protective, gentle, determined. I noticed a book I have had for 15 months and never opened. The answer to my current issue was right there in that book.

Another source of inspiration comes from my friends. I surround myself with friends who are open-minded, have a deep heart, accept my spirituality, support my parenting, understand my way of life. Remember: energy is contagious so the vibration of those around you affects how you feel, what you think and therefore how you conduct your life. You deserve to be supported in your every day life so you can be your best you!

3- I read inspirational tweets, inspirational books, I watch videos and read blogs from great modern thinkers, whether I agree with them or not: it keeps my brain cells wondering, wandering and vibrating!
I will be sharing with you some of the books, articles & videos I find inspirational when they cross my path.

From you! My clients and my readers' lives are endlessly fascinating and inspirational!

What do YOU find inspirational? Please leave a comment below, share with me and inspire me!

Saturday's Angels

I had two very clear angel encounters on Saturday.

1- I was emotionally upset. A current situation was stirring up old childhood pain. It is my intention to stay in joy and away from those old wounds. So I asked for help with the pain.

Nearly instantly I felt surrounded, supported, soothed. The pain was literally lifted from my heart. My whole body relaxed. The pain in my left shoulder lessened dramatically (today the Physical Therapist could not believe how much better it was from last week).

The greatest peace settled in my heart, in my mind. I was content to the core of my being where a minute previously I had been thrashing negative ideas.

Without questioning, I gave thanks, settled back into enjoying life and got on with the day.

2- A few hours later I felt a large wing gently push my right shoulder and guide me towards my book shelf. A book I have had for 15 months and had forgotten about caught my attention. As soon as I noticed the book the sense of touch stopped on my shoulder and I felt a deep sense of satisfaction. The angelic presence was pleased and was sharing that feeling with me.

I had no idea what the book was. I opened it and one paragraph put an end to 2 moths of wondering about my work:
"Here's my suggestion to the skeptics and "experts", for a refreshing change of pace. We're done proving there's life after death. We've proven it well past our own satisfaction. From now on, let's do it this way: you prove that there's not." Sylvia Browne

Thank you to my wonderful angels, my team, for the reassurance, the presence, the company, the teachings, the guidance.

Thank YOU for reading!

Inspired Decision

I have been thinking about inspiration lately. More specifically: how do I make an inspired decision? You know the kind of decision I feel really good about, everything falls into place easily, other people like it, the outcome is good for all concerned.

By definition an inspired decision comes from Spirit (Merriam Webster: "inspired: outstanding or brilliant in a way or to a degree suggestive of divine inspiration" ): mine and the Divine's.

I have to listen and pay attention to find out what Spirit is suggesting to me.

In the silence, in the pause, in the space in between, there lies the inspired answer.

Protected Feminine Energy Today

Because of the energies that are at play today it is a very good day to do Goddess work & to connect with the Feminine aspect of the Divine in a safe & protected way. So it is a good day to resolve whatever relationship upsets arose last Friday. I noticed last week-end a lot of relationships being volatile. Many women telling me they were feeling lonely. Some were revisiting old relationships and mentioned feeling betrayed, used or guilty. There was a whole bag of old negative emotions being kicked up around the full moon.


So we can let go of all that and move on!

So we can make a clear space to create from.

I know of several of us who did just that!

In romantic relationships in particular, today's energy is safe because it is balanced between the male and female energy. Safety is conducive to a loving and therefore honest dialogue.

That's right: when you are being completely loving, you are being completely in truth. Love is where we come from, where we are going back to and what we are.

When you are feeling loved enough to be vulnerable and safe at the same time, you can communicate your truth and hear/receive the other person's truth.

You don't need to fix anything at this stage. You only need to sit in love and with truth and see what is resolved. See what happens next or comes to your heart-mind next.

Juice Feasting Day 4: Last Day

On hearing that I was juice feasting my wonderful friend Alice said: "You're so good to your bod already, seems like. Purely Sophie. Should be in a bottle. I'd buy some! What toxins could you possibly have if you eat mostly raw and juicing already?"

1- I do eat MOSTLY raw: 70% in winter, 50% in the holidays
to be socially acceptable (more on this here)... and about 90% in summer.

I am not overly worried about what I normally eat. I think my body does stay pretty balanced with it. Recently I was anxious and ate a lot more cooked food than usual for a couple of months so that does need to be detoxed.

2- I really wanted to reach and eliminate old, old toxins that were deeply entrenched.
They were only going to be released when I was ready to release the old emotions attached to them.
On the second day of my Juice Feast I had many breakthroughs and realizations. I felt that I had reached what I needed to with this detox. I had reached the next level of awareness on my journey.

I kept going because I had planned to. Stubborn, me? Never! Again I would have done well to listen to my guidance (Are we on a theme here? I think so!) because on Day 4 my body rebelled and I decided to go back to my normal diet.

I am grateful that I have achieved what I set out to do.
I am glad that what used to take 3 weeks now happens in 2 days! Which means that overall my body is fairly clear and very responsive.

Any comments and questions are welcome below!

Be Lost in the Call by Rumi

Be Lost in the Call

Lord, said David, since you do not need us,
why did you create these two worlds?

Reality replied: O prisoner of time,
I was a secret treasure of kindness and generosity,
and I wished this treasure to be known,
so I created a mirror: its shining face, the heart;
its darkened back, the world;
The back would please you if you've never seen the face.

Has anyone ever produced a mirror out of mud and straw?
Yet clean away the mud and straw,
and a mirror might be revealed.

Until the juice ferments a while in the cask,
it isn't wine. If you wish your heart to be bright,
you must do a little work.

My King addressed the soul of my flesh:
You return just as you left.
Where are the traces of my gifts?

We know that alchemy transforms copper into gold.
This Sun doesn't want a crown or robe from God's grace.
He is a hat to a hundred bald men,
a covering for ten who were naked.

Jesus sat humbly on the back of an ass, my child!
How could a zephyr ride an ass?
Spirit, find your way, in seeking lowness like a stream.
Reason, tread the path of selflessness into eternity.

Remember God so much that you are forgotten.
Let the caller and the called disappear;
be lost in the Call.
