Yes, I do mean what you think I mean by "sanctimonious a**es." It made sense to get right to it, rather than hedge with more gentle, round-about language, since I noticed a theme arising. 'Tis the season, in line with... Continue Reading →
"An awakened heart is not a problem to be solved, but a gift to be honored, protected, and expressed, with all of the fierceness of the regal Lioness and Lion." In these days and times, an awakened heart -- individually... Continue Reading →
It's Independence Day week in the U.S., and the Energies of Now feature the fiery electrical currents of the metaphorical fire-breathing Dragon, along with elemental support to soothe and ground. Depending on our awareness and discernment, of course. As always.... Continue Reading →
I'll begin with the Way of the Monk, Path of the Artist quote, because it came up, resonated, and intuitively seems timely: “One thing I keep coming back to is a sense of deep certainty that the way of the... Continue Reading →
Have you noticed a bit of a change in (inner and outer) atmosphere in recent days? For several weeks, we enjoyed (or not) a concentration of those flowing (or snowing) Piscean energies in the macro-sphere, as Venus and Mercury joined... Continue Reading →
It's been a wild few weeks, on the macro and micro, and life's kept me busier than usual in the local, interpersonal, in-the-thick-of-it realm. Even so, quite a few Sophia's Children musings have been brewing and incubating, so stay tuned.... Continue Reading →
Linda shares some good reminders and tips for empathic and highly sensitive people -- always good tips for staying centered and empowered, but particularly for those times and seasons that are a bit more frenzied and extroverted. "I am sensing... Continue Reading →
Just now, we have the Full Moon (in Gemini), Mercury stationing retrograde (in Saj, at the Galactic Center); the now-waning agida-spiking, flame-throwing opposition between Uranus and Mars; a lovely, "spacious mind" alliance between Jupiter and Neptune, and the heightened electric...

Once again, the Cosmic Symphony will feature some potent Galactic Center-empowered play as we move through this month and cross the threshold of the year-end Holy Days and into a fresh new calendar year. I've been receiving a flurry of... Continue Reading →
“Unnecessary noise is the most cruel absence of care that can be inflicted on sick or well.” ~ Florence Nightingale (1820-1910), social reformer and founder of modern nursing In a world and culture of increasing and relentless noise, the benefits... Continue Reading →
We’re on the far-side, now, of the recent Solstice (21 December) - Winter Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, Summer Solstice in the Southern - and the end-of-the-year holidays and ‘calendar New Year’. And that’s just the tip of that iceberg,... Continue Reading →
The beautiful moon is waxing into fullness, and that full, ripe moon occurs just past midnight on Sunday morning (EDT). Using the language of astrology for the energy and archetype signatures: This full moon joins Uranus in Aries ... fire... Continue Reading →
"Imaginal hygiene is the inner art of self-managing the imagination, to defend it from forces that compromise, pollute, colonize, shrink, and sterilize it, and to cultivate those that illuminate, expand, and nourish it." ~ M. T. Xen, by way of... Continue Reading →
"The birds of negativity may flock around your head, but you don't have to let them nest there." Then again, Bird Whispering is an art that must be learned and practiced in the nesting season. Hint: It's a nesting season.... Continue Reading →
For many horizon-edge walkers and vision-seeders, transformation agents, and similar culture-shifters, or just people trying to be decent and kind in a culture and world that seems too-often indecent and insane, transformation fatigue, apathy, and burnout are occupational hazards, ever...

"Tell a wise person, or else keep silent; for the mass-man will mock it right away." ~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's The Holy Longing Many of us are conditioned to reach outward for confirmation, affirmation, approval, validation, and/or understanding from... Continue Reading →
Though I'm writing about sensitivity to 'energy gunk' and why that's important, I'll start with Chiron, since I mention him, too. This insight from Brad Keeney speaks well to our Chirotic Quest, as it's sometimes called: “This is where the... Continue Reading →

Just when you thought it might be safe to go back into the water, another wave from the Zap Zone. As we know, though, where there's friction and agitation -- where there be monsters -- there's the potential for creativity... Continue Reading →
From what I’m feeling, experiencing, and hearing from a fair number of peeps, it’s a fine time for an Energies of Now update.
I’ve heard quite a few, “Oh thank God! I thought it was just me who was feeling (fill in the blank).”
I feel ya, truly I do.
That’s how it is, and that’s why we share. Compadres on the wild and wily Way.
Rather than recreate the wheel, I’ve updated a post that had a relevant ‘symptoms list’ and roster of helpful practices to ride the wave.
So here we are, my fellow Chaos Surfers and Transformativas!
Oh yeah, it’s been a doozy of a few days. Or week. Or more.
Peep-reports from the field, which sync with my own experiences and/or observations of those around me, suggest a Zap-Zone with a very stirred up, mucky shared field.
So after several requests for an Energies of Now ‘energy weather’ post, here it is. Truly, my pleasure.
First, the symptoms.
Second, possible energy/psychic ‘cocktail’ elements or influences.
Third, some self-care suggestions that I and others have found helpful … and regularly practice, update, upgrade, and tweek.
The Symptoms and Experiences
Sensitives, or people wired just so, who have shared energy updates with me report experiencing the following in the last week:
• unusual physical symptoms,
• waves of sadness or melancholy … some of them coming and going quite suddenly,
• disrupted sleep, disturbed dreams,
• free-floating underlying angst…

This is a good reminder from Laurie Rohner, since the Energies of Now may well stir up the ol’ Hissy Fits and Tantrum Yoga outbursts, and the drama-drama-conflama moments.
Full moon, lots of zap-zone energetics buzzing around, and the ups-and-downs potentials of fiery and watery, yang and yin astro-energies (a.k.a. the energy field we live, breath, and interact in!).
Stay present, stay cool, and have your ‘soothing remedies’ at the ready!
(Head to the Sophia’s Children Empaths & Sensitives Series for other timely tips on ‘Hissy Fitters’ and ‘soothing remedies’!).
Big Love, Deep Breaths, and and a nice cup of cucumber, lavender and peppermint tea!
Let me share a story with you.
Yesterday an email hit my inbox from Etsy. It was for a custom order. I opened the email and found this young women ranting with profanity about how I had sent her a twitter feed and to stop it. Now I admit I don’t know how things work but I do know that this was her issue – not mine. I replied back explaining I had nothing to do with her feed being filled up with my etsy posts – 5 to be exact – and she was not to contact shop owners through the custom order request. I said I was sorry this happened and wish her a better day. She then shot me another scathing email how she has reported me to twitter – hum don’t understand why – and that…
