Hello darlings, and welcome back to Medicine Caller. I’m your host they call me Sophia Wise One. I am, how am I ? I am. I’m being cooked and being cooked really deeply. And I’m really grateful for it. There’s a part of the shift that we’re in right now that is very obviously there’s these big movements, there’s these big changes, there’s this big conversation happening. And yet what I know a lot of us are walking in is actually an act of fine tuning. There’s the minutiae, the detail, those of us who have been in this awakening, soul searching, planet loving place for a long time are looking to hone we’re looking to hone our impact hone our presence hone our well being to contribute, not just in theory, but in embodiment. The world that we want in this time. So while so much of the world is banging with these aches and these cries and these calls for what is to come, many of us are being called to go deep into our quiet, to see the places where we have been perpetuating our own aches, and to soften and heal those. And so that is where I am. And, and that is where I believe many, many of you are and perhaps you’re listening with me right now today. I know that’s, that’s where you are. I have a very special guest with us today that I’m really excited to share with you. She’s deeply dedicated to contributing to this process that we’re all in this Earth healing, planet serving walk, I’m going to give you her little bio here and then bring her in. And so I want to just take a moment before I tell you a little bit more about her and just give yourself permission to receive what you need in this moment. Whether Lotus Sky says it, whether I say it, whether it’s something that you think or whether it’s a bird that flies by while you’re listening, what it is that you need in this moment to strengthen or to soften, to let go and forget or to remember, whatever it is that you’re needing. Give yourself permission to get it in this time that you’re giving to yourself. Lotus sky as a musical channel and shamanic guide, born and raised in the Philippines and hailing from the Golden State of California. Through her study with different shamanic lineages, training in multiple healing and transformational modalities, as well as connecting to her star and earth guides to channel light language. Lotus sky helps people find personal liberation by fully inhabiting who they truly are. Right I mean, yes, this is totally our people here and bringing them into deep remembrance of their divine heritage. Lotus Sky has been called nature spirit, a cosmic channel and earth Angel, where her voice brings profound healing and her shamanic offerings are truly transmissions from beyond the veil. I found Lotus Sky a friend of mine said, you got to hear this song, dance it out with me and sent me a link on Spotify and I was immediately transformed and healed and became just a deep grateful. Fabulous like, have you heard this? Play it on repeat. Share the medicine share the transmission fan and I don’t know. And just yeah, excited to be here. So Lotus Sky Welcome. Welcome. Welcome. Welcome to Medicine Caller.
Lotus Sky 05:35
Thank you so much. Sophia, Wise One. So wonderful to be here. You have such a soothing voice. I just loved it. I thought I was listening to the podcast, not in it.
Sophia Wise One 05:49
Just lean back, you know. Thank you. I’m so glad. You know the thing that’s stirring in me right now I can like feel it in my belly. Sitting here is is this phrase, Earth warrior that you use that really, that really speaks to, I think your your mission, right? Like it’s this piece. And I was wondering if you could talk about what, what Earth warriorship is to you like how you found it, what it is what it means to walk with that? Tell me, tell me. Tell us about that.
Lotus Sky 06:28
Yeah, you know the word, the term Earth warrior came to me actually this year during the lockdown. And it’s so interesting, because when my guides shared that with me, I noticed some resistance to the word warrior, because of patriarchal and colonial projections to that word, warrior. Right.
Sophia Wise One 06:52
Lotus Sky 06:52
And it had like an energy of fighting of, of distress, of upheaval, and all of that. And my guides were sharing with me that no, this is this is different, you get to heal your relationship with this world word, because the energy that’s really arising in your consciousness is that of the Earth warrior. And, you know, when my guys share information with me, it’s really in packets that I translate in a linear way through words. So I’ll do my best to kind of channel that through. But the Earth Warrior is someone who is deeply connected to the Earth, Earth wisdom, the cosmic wisdom, grounded in their hearts, and being a stand for the kind of world that we want to live in today being a stand for the good. And being an embodiment of what is shared with me, are the six dimensions of personal liberation, the six dimensions of self mastery when, when embodied, will support you in not only creating transformation in your own life, but also contributing to the transformation of the collective. And that’s how this energy came to me. And I started to integrate and find that in my own healing path, I realized that my higher self, my ancestors, the Earth, that I work with the planets that teach me like my greatest teachers, they have been preparing me to teach in these ways to support people in claiming the transformation that’s happening today.
Sophia Wise One 08:37
Awesome. I love it, it reminds me of so my mother is a yoga teacher she studied with Swami Satchidananda Oh my gosh, 30 plus years ago, and, and she teaches the warrior pose with stories. She teaches all of the poses, actually with stories when she teaches. And so she teaches about the warrior, as the first job of the warrior is to show up. And the second job of the warrior is to keep the boundary without judgment, without aggression without anger. And the third job of the warrior is to do it at all costs, to be fearless to be to be unafraid of death. And that, you know, the difference between a soldier and a warrior, and there are many is that a soldier takes orders. And that a warrior is a is a sovereign being. Who understands and discerns moment to moment of where that line is and and and what it’s for, and, and how it’s maintained.
Lotus Sky 09:43
I totally resonate with that. Like, distinction between the two, and I think that’s what’s happening in our consciousness today is that in for many for many lifetimes, a soldier is for what we were been paying society has been trading out, you know, no pawns in the bigger game. And what we’re reclaiming is the sovereign warrior within, and one that does not look out to others, but channels through sources of wisdom and manifests and creates from that space, from a place of firmness. There’s no like aggression needed in this space. It is the truth of being. And I don’t even think that there’s any fighting necessarily, I think there is a standing for. And I think this is a distinction that has really supported me in reconciling, reconciling, but navigating and coming to peace with what’s really going on in the great shamanic death that our consciousness is experiencing and what is really being birthed from it.
Sophia Wise One 10:57
Yeah, the assertion is like the word that comes to mind talk about that, like standing and that like, like to assert to be willing to reinforce that clarity like when it’s pushed against, right, so not having to push over in that aggressor dominance over but being able to assert, like, every time it’s challenged, to be able to like assert and reassert and hold. That’s what comes to mind. Can you tell me more about what you see, or experience or know about this collective? I just love what you just said, this collective shamanic death that we’re experiencing? I feel it. I’m like, I’m with you. That’s the birth death doors is open.
Lotus Sky 11:38
Sophia Wise One 11:38
Can you share? Yeah.
Lotus Sky 11:41
I think many of the things I’ll be sharing is similar to what many of the dialogues been online, particularly with a spiritual community, and that is that, that interruptions in life are drama. And they happen to get your attention. And it’s in these these interruptions that are really gifts, and we can actually look at it that way. They’re really wonderful opportunities. And that’s, I think, on Earth warrior quality, the these this wise ability to perceive challenges and obstacles as gifts and opportunities. And in this space, we have the opportunity to, to claim what’s moving through, and to first do the individual transformation within. I received this many times from my guides, but particularly strong this month, is that what we wish to see in the world we get to implement within ourselves, we want to see harmony in the World, we get to create harmony lives and within ourselves if we want, abundance and connection in this world, that we get to heal and create abundance within ourselves and create connection with ourselves. If we want peace and understanding, we get to cultivate that. And so what we’re seeing in the consciousness, I feel is a huge mirror to what’s occurring within that gets to be transmuted in powerful ways may not happen, it may not be a direct magnitude, but in some way, it is a reflection. And that personal transformation is what’s called first and foremost, within in this inner consciousness, and we’re seeing that there are many people who are realizing that their jobs that they don’t love, or that no job is truly secure, so you mind as well go and do what you really love to do.
Sophia Wise One 13:41
Lotus Sky 13:42
You see some people who are in relationships that don’t fulfill them, or they’re abusive, that during times of challenges, expose this abuse and are now shifting that you know, now, shifting that healing it or even leaving it right. And there, this even maybe perhaps this certainly happened to me and happen to many of the people that I work with old memories, childhood memories, or old patterns that have kind of been buried or coming up for resolution for resolution to ultimately set yourself free. So this personal transformation is happening. And then there’s a collective transformation that is also happening. Through our own individual work, we’ll be able to navigate and the solutions are going to be are going to require a different level of being than what has worked before. Because we are ascending like the solutions or the the ways to grow from it isn’t it’s not going to happen playing out the same pattern that has been repeated time and time again in history is going to require trance is going to require us to transcend, to transcend that, and to show up in a new way, in a way that unifies us in a way that holds with love in a way that I think unify is really is the word here.
Sophia Wise One 15:25
Yeah, absolutely, absolutely that, that resonates so much. I mean, I’ve been getting the same messages. And one of the messages that I’ve been getting over and over again, especially in the summer, and I’m having a fascinating, and I’ll like I give like praises like and glorious experience recently a shift in this, but especially over the summer, and I know a lot of people are in this place right now, in which it’s like, I can’t imagine the solutions. And I can’t imagine what it looks like. And the message that I kept getting when I was in that place was, that’s because your viewpoint will be so fundamentally shifted, that we will be in a different. You’ll come You won’t even see the problem, the same way that you see the problem. So you will solve it, you will create solutions or imagine a landscape that is unfathomable to your current level of consciousness. But the consciousness that you have now is is you know, limited by by your state. And so this focus and this drive for me, and for those that many of them walking with has been this, again, this courage and this cultivation of that like deeper honing, like I really want to know what abundance and safety and well being and joy is truly not in theory, right? Not not passing, but I want a world where that’s lasting, which means I get to cultivate, how do I become a lasting landscape of joy for a lasting landscape of, of peace and well being, which isn’t to say that there isn’t ever a flow. But the way that things have been normalized, and taken for granted in our past paradigms, like how do we normalize into a place of safety and well being. And then from that place, the way that we solve, quote, unquote, problems, or the way that we see problems are fundamentally different. And so then the resolutions are, are are beyond. And I’ve been having some experience of those doors beginning to open and, and shift. And mostly like you were talking about kind of those messages coming in packets, mostly, those real deep moments of clarity, are still coming in nonlinear. Or like, like, I get some images, but mostly it’s these, it’s these vibrational experiences. In my practice, I’m meditating or I’m practicing and I’m feeling these vibrations, and I can feel the way that I’m, I’m getting pushed like this, like edges are getting worked. And, and I’m having to acclimate. I’m doing a lot of like acclimating, like, Okay, this is the new like, Okay, this is the next it feels very similar to my kind of initial, like training and awakening that happened in my, like, late teens, for me, when I first started, like studying with more teachers, and would kind of have these reminds me of like, the first Reiki class I took and being like, Oh my gosh, like, it just amplified the healing that was happening so fast. And so it was so visceral. And so like, every day, like this potency, this potency, I think about that. I’ve been experiencing a lot of that and just being like, I mean, it was constant before, but now it’s like, what was constant before looks like a casual week, to what has been my experience in the past? I don’t know, 10 months or two years.
Lotus Sky 18:44
Yeah, I think because of the way the has been accelerating. And, and the frequency of it is just in this constant uplevelment, which is one of the reasons why, like I created you know, my work, Earth warrior school, for example, to support people, like, you know, the guides were like, this times accelerating transformation is going to happen one after the other, you’re either fully present with it, moving through it with, you know, connected, or you’re being dragged by the foot of it. And, you know, it’s really helpful for people to have the tools mindset and perspective to support them as they navigate all of that. It like I always think that enlightened like when I was growing up, I always thought that enlightenment was like, you know, always good, you know, always thought it was like, You don’t have any challenges and if you do if you experience like, any, like, sad emotions or anger or anything like that, that that’s like not enlightenment and in some ways like my, my family used to shame me for that or shame that like, well look at you. You’re crying like if you were good if you were if you knew you’re different. Anything wrong and you wouldn’t be crying. And so it was very manipulative like that. But now I’m seeing that it’s not bad actually like we came here for the human experience. And it’s not like that you don’t go through challenges is who you are in challenges. It’s who you are in relation to your grief, your anger, your joy, your obstacles, your celebrations, that that, that, that that give information to reflect your level of enlightenment, right?
Sophia Wise One 20:30
Lotus Sky 20:31
I mean, I cried last night. It was a great cry, it was really profound. And I’m a cancer like a cancer rising. Cancer, sun and Venus and cancer, like, so many times, I feel like crap…
Sophia Wise One 20:44
Oh, my God
Lotus Sky 20:45
it’s part of my medicine is my gift to the world. You’re welcome.
Sophia Wise One 20:48
Yeah. Yeah. Yeah.
Lotus Sky 20:50
And, and I have no shame around that, which is so funny, because that’s what I was shamed for growing up, I literally would not cry, I stopped crying, and only in my 20s. And I start to cry again. And it’s really powerful. You know, my teacher would say that tears bring us closer to God. And like, he’s, and I find my moments of crying, whether it’s crying out of gratitude, or crying out of processing grief, from a perspective of wisdom. It’s, it’s very powerful, very powerful connection to source in this moment. And that’s what, that’s, that’s what shifted for me in terms of how to navigate, you know, the transformation going on. It’s being in touch and being in a radical acceptance from a place of wisdom.
Sophia Wise One 21:38
I love that. Processing grief, from a wisdom perspective, or wise perspective. I mean, everything you just said, Yes. Yeah. It’s, it reminds me there’s an old Buddhist story of a teacher who has a students and, and the teacher, son, dies, passes. And he’s, he’s weeping, he’s weeping. And he’s weeping in his, his, in his his room, and he’s weeping and weeping. And a students come and they say, teacher, why are you weeping like you’re enlightened? Like, like, don’t you know, like, your son is like, connected and the cycle and is reunited with all that, you know, it’s like, you know, all this stuff. You tell us all this stuff? Like, why are you weeping? The teacher looks at his students. And he says, because my son has died. It’s like, because this is what we because this is what we do. Like, this is how we this is what it like, because I know, because I’m here in this gift of, of humanity. It’s like, because, yeah,
Lotus Sky 22:46
like, hearing this gift of humanity is exactly it, like, let me write that down, put it on a post it and put everywhere in my house. Hearing this gift of humanity, and then and honestly, like, I love being human, I love the human life. I love being a child of the Earth. It’s just, it’s so beautiful. It’s so unique. And, and and it’s such a gift. And these emotions, you know, they say that humans experience such a rich variation of emotions that other beings and other planets don’t necessarily have, you know, genetics or energetics for, you know, we have different types of love, and we have different types of anger and it’s so rich and you know, and, and this is not to say that we need to swing or be in an imbalanced space, the earth warrior way is, is finding that centeredness throughout the, the range of emotions that are felt, but it is a gift when you can feel it from a place of that level of wisdom. And I love I love the richness of the journey that I experienced, you know, the richness of, of the, the hell and heaven I’ve created to come back to who I really am. And a lot of people get to claim in their own life, the hell and heaven you went through, over and over again your lifetime to remember who you are.
Sophia Wise One 24:15
I love that. And I really just have to just have this moment here because I I am just reemerging after a very deep a very deep hell chapter learning how chapter I was just returned to a level of depression and actually went past went to a deeper level of depression with more consciousness and more tools and more support and like more joy and miracle than ever before and yet the depth and the ache was was definitely unparalleled. Yet in this life. It was it was deep was very deep. And so just to be talking with you and to be feeling the my honest resonance with I love being human, feel so precious to me. Because in those 10 months, in that aching, and in that pain body and in those Shadow Lands, I was throwing a fit. And I did not love it. I was loving towards it. I showed up, I chose love inside it, but I was not. I was not in the, in the bliss of the deep carving of grief, or the deep burning and purification of rage. And I know that love. And I walk. I have spent many years of my life in that in that real deep love. And I was startled to find myself almost like, the image that just came to mind is like I caught a train that was going somewhere that I like, didn’t know I was going like I was just like, wait, wait, wait, wait, no, no, this isn’t the ticket. I bought what’s happening how to get here like, No, no, no, no, no, it’s not. We’re like, No, no, I’ve never going back to that town was like kind of the feeling again, the train stopped and was like, trains not leaving for six months, you know, 10 months. And I was like, I guess I live in this town now like back in this town where like, it’s just, it was just so, so hard to appreciate. And it was a real training. And I think about that too. And that’s also why I love the warrior call the Earth warriors love warriors, light warriors that this word warrior shows up. Many people have received this word as a rainbow warriors as as our charge of this time. And part of that, I think for me has to do with the training of the warrior, which I talked about, you know, that that third piece of the work is being unafraid of death, which is means to be unafraid of fear. Right. And so we don’t come into our human form most of us and are not afraid of fear, right? We feel fear, and then all the fear responses happen. And so we have to train ourselves to feel fear. And then to hold that. Just like we have to hold lovingly any other emotion, our rage, our grief, our pain, our ecstasy, our joy, our giddiness our excitement to be to have that solidity that you’re talking about, or that groundedness or that call that center that can let that can enjoy and appreciate the passing of these other I also love the the, the teaching and the perspective of like, it’s not my grief for your grief. It’s not even our grief. It’s, it’s the grief, or it’s the healing or it’s the rage. So I often use the phrase like I’m being visited by the grief, I’m feeling the grief, you know, this vibration, this experience, this hormonal experience that’s passing through this being that so much bigger, or so much smaller, depending on the perspective, right and being touched by this experience, and letting myself be touched, letting myself be changed, like letting that that deep ache change me. And that depression I was just I’ve been I’ve had a lot of healing. I had a really good weep last night to like two really good weeps yesterday. And, and one of them was in session with a with a with a healer in my life. And what came up was I birthed a really big project, in the winter of 2020 completed a game, a deck, a book, an online Academy, like a body of work, this massive body of work that I’ve been working on for years, and I really went into a postpartum depression is truly what it was my body, my energy. A lot of many people have come back to me and said, like, your treatment and your recovery is appropriately matched. It’s like it’s a metaphor, and it’s not a metaphor. Like that’s what’s happening like you’ve been emptied and, and all of these things and so yeah, I think I’m just kind of having a moment of that place to hear you say like, I love being human. And to feel this part of me that’s like, Oh, I remember when I used to feel that way. And then being like, wait, wait, wait, I I do feel that way like today and like I felt that way three days ago and like, and I’m just I’m weeks into feeling the truth of that again. And and I say again, but it doesn’t feel really like again because I feel like it’s never been here before. There’s a way that I love being human now. That is like even that is accelerated even that is more than it was before the way that I loved being human before. Didn’t have it didn’t love the it didn’t love that town. In the same way that now I have that notion of like, Well, that was a trip. Went to that town. If that town I love that town. I know it better. I have more affection, more respect. I know what it needs. It’s in better shape. You know, I’m the parts of myself that deep breaths the parts of myself that were in deep need got more care this time. I did a lot of soul a lot of childhood. I did a lot of revisiting my child, you talked about that. It’s been a lot of these childhood memories, a lot of revisiting this panicked panic, panic child, and and feeling that pain. Feeling it be overwhelming and yet being able to cultivate the presence and the and the and the healing and the support to, to hold it to hold her. And so although it was still scary and painful over time, it healed in me in a way that I am just, I’m in this I’m in this tender place like oh, yeah, do I like feel like feel good again, and like, new, I feel good. In this new way.
Lotus Sky 30:54
It’s a process of it’s a evan flow. It’s that cycle of forgetting and remembering in a deeper way to remember even in a deeper way and like and, and is usually the most powerful healers that went through the hardest Hell’s you know, I it’s funny because I pick this this Earth warrior Oracle card, which is an incredible deck, and I absolutely love it. And I’ve picked this card Lolo, which is I believe the butterfly was a butterfly Machina or it was about a butterfly. And it talks about shining bright. And there was one part that really stuck out to me out of all the other parts about being a light, and it was those who have only met you in your joy and your glee may not know, like, you know, the darkness that you had to go through to get there. And to be able to experience the same contrast of light. And it was powerful, because when I reflect on what I’ve been through in my life, it was it was very challenging. It was it was deeply, it was a very deep, and very humbling and very novel worthy, quite frankly. And the places that I went to, in such self abandonment and resistance and, and help like creating and being in my own home, not having tools to navigate out of it, and I’m finding it to come out the next time around that I’ve experienced that. And I experienced that this year, too. Like there was a point this year where I felt like I was being very tested. But firm still and very grateful that I had the tools that I did, from the previous house where I was learning the tools in that training as you shared. And like those moments, were even moments of existential thoughts, you know, and, but coming out of it, you know, coming coming out of it to, to know, and sometimes when I get into those tests, you know, those cycles of forgetting, you know, what it did for me, at least this year, I think the biggest thing it did for me this year was for me to not not to be afraid of the dark anymore, which is really interesting. Because in the past, especially in in medicine path, there is such a focus on, you know, the light, and the transmuting to the light and everything has to be light and light is good at all. And you know, in the shining path and a medicine path, like the dark, the dark can be very scary if you don’t have the tools to navigate it. And it can be very scary if you’re on a different level of darkness that you’ve never been before. Right?
Sophia Wise One 34:04
Lotus Sky 34:05
A new level of darkness like there’s a new level tools.
Sophia Wise One 34:09
Lotus Sky 34:10
Like Welcome to level 10 darknesss
Sophia Wise One 34:13
Lotus Sky 34:14
Um, you were in level five now you’re in level 10 like.
Sophia Wise One 34:17
Lotus Sky 34:19
Yeah, and I remember because for example is gonna be funny, but like after ceremony, you’re in ceremony or in general in my life, like, I don’t like be in complete darkness. You know, um, and so like if I’m walking out I want there to be a light you know? I want a glimmer of the moon. You know, I want the glimmer of the stars like I want like some kind of light. And but because I went through this level 10 initiation.
Sophia Wise One 34:57
Lotus Sky 34:57
I like stepped out of it. And I just started I was going to my car. And it was very dark outside there were trees that were hovering over in this lot. And, you know, we just finished ceremony and I usually would just turn on the light and go, but then I actually felt very comfortable here, not comfortable, like, in a way that it overcomes me comfortable, meaning I can be firm, as I move through this space, it was metaphorical to, you know, the, the level of Earth warriorship that, that I received in that space. And, like, I always share that I’m an endless student, because because the universe is infinite. And so the teachings are then infinite. And when you know, you don’t know. And, when you don’t know you know, and then when you know, you grow, when you grow you flow, so it’s a this ebb and flow, and between, in the spiral, you know, when I think of when I think of growth, I think of not a linear path, I think of a spiral and spiral. That’s, that’s like toroidal, you know, yes, it’s toroidal. And it’s a spiral and it goes up, and it goes down into infinity. And in that space, I’m, you know, I am pateint, and so. And so I claim this, and I have no problem claming it. And I think for those who are very attached to the light, and only work with the light and all that, I hope they put some really good kneepads on you know, cuz you’re in for a really big fall.
Sophia Wise One 36:48
Lotus Sky 36:49
You can hold lightness and mysteries as one divinity, you’re born into infinity, and that’s the line in my song phoenix rising.
Sophia Wise One 37:02
So good, it’s so good. I just keep thinking about how, you know, so many seeds, if you put them out in the sunlight, they can’t sprout, they need the dark, it like it’s in the dark and the wet, and the, in that insulation and a certain kind of heat in a certain kind of cold that that’s where that’s where the root does a certain kind of growth and sprouting. That happens in the dark and the quiet. I don’t know if anybody does this, but it’s one of my favorite things, which is at the end of most days, if I’m going to take a shower, I shower in the dark, make the room as dark as possible. And the water and the dark are too deep, deep companions for me for releasing and surrendering into, into into peace, like into that radical acceptance place that you’re talking about. Right? Yeah, it’s a powerful time I wrote a poem, I don’t have it with me. This spring, I wrote a poem where I heard the was like, people are being sent into dissent. And they don’t know it. And and they’re, they’re looking around not knowing that it’s not sight that will get them through but feeling like understanding like, exactly, we’re talking about, like the different levels of of darkness, or depth or shadow, or the gifts and the healings that happened there. And that we need different skills and different means different different sensing to move through that. And say that again.
Lotus Sky 38:47
It’s exciting when I think about it. And like it, honestly, like maybe some people think I’m just a crazy masochist or something like that, but it’s not so much like that. It’s because their words are so high. Their words are so high, like
Sophia Wise One 39:06
Yeah, it’s worth it.
Lotus Sky 39:08
So worth it and like
Sophia Wise One 39:10
So worth it.
Lotus Sky 39:11
It’s not for me to be like, please let me attract all the most difficult challenges of life, there’s
Sophia Wise One 39:16
Lotus Sky 39:17
It not like that. It’s, I am I am, I am equipped and prepared. And like, through my connection to source through my connection to my, my Great Mother Earth, through my heart and my soul in the light that it is to, to ready it to, to ready this evolution to to to fully participate in it. And you know in, in the medicine path with them, my teachers always share with me and my plan teachers is that like the resistance makes the suffering. The resistance creates the suffering. The pain may be part of it, but the resistance it creates the suffering And so, so breathe.
Sophia Wise One 40:03
Lotus Sky 40:04
So you say, and, and I and so I’ve been loving that kind of growing of mastery and the, the constant up leveling of being that. Ultimately what it is, is just these different permission slips to remember who you are to be free, some souls need that deep contrast to see light, it’s not necessary. But some chose choose that because it’s interesting to the soul. You know, it’s fascinating ultimately it knows it’s true, like outside of this lifetime, one would source. And so it finds this experience fascinating. So sometimes it helps for me to be a perceiver of myself and witness of myself while also experiencing it. Does that make sense?
Sophia Wise One 41:05
Yes, yes, it does. Very much. So. And I think that’s one of those things are just having a conversation with a extended family member walking around, and we were talking and they said to me, they’re very sweet. They were like, I mean, that all sounds well and good, Sophia, but it all sounds very intellectual. And I was talking about kind of this path of authenticity and embodiment of the soul. And I kind of had to chuckle because in my head, I was like, Yo, this shit is so far from intellectual for me. It’s like the most like, visceral real thing that I like, exist interact with. But I understand I understood that. I untiringly understood what they were saying. And so when you talk about that place of like, that, it’s useful for me to see myself from a beyond perspective, while also like feeling and being that notion of like, it may make sense in theory, or not. But once you experience it, it’s not a theory. It’s not an idea. It’s, it’s a, it’s an, it’s a real experience, like, like putting your foot on a step and stepping up, or putting your hand on a doorknob and opening a door. Right? Like, it’s just like, nobody says to someone, like, wow, when you, when you turn that knob on the door, the door opens, that was like, Wow, that’s a very intellectual conversation we’re having, right? Like, no, this is literally how doorknobs work, you know, just how doorknobs work. And so that place of like, you know, when, when it becomes really lived and embodied. It’s it’s no longer theory, theoretical or intellectual. But one word, but when it’s an idea, it can be incredibly directive or helpful as an idea, or in that forgetting place, it can be so powerful as a reminder, right? Like, when we’re in that sacred forgetting, and we’re in that I don’t remember, place, you know, just being like I’m in it, I’m in it and being like, or you could zoom out and remember your infinite self, it’s like, oh, I don’t know how to do that, I can do that, you know, like, even for a glimpse, even for a moment, you know, to be able to do that. It’s ultimately a decision on what perspective you choose to have and what perspective
Lotus Sky 43:11
your perspectives create your experience. And it ultimately, is your choice and what perspective you choose to have to have the experience to learn, I get what you came there to experience, to see what you came there and see. So like, in you know, you can you can go microscopal in your suffering and be in it, submerged in it, and then find your way out of it in this beautiful, sensational experience of the soul remembering itself, you can also have the perspective of you being of the unified whole, experiencing the experience from that higher perspective. You can pop in and out like you can, you can see the darkness as this like ally, you know, you can have the perspective as this is also a teacher for me and see where that leads you. Or sometimes, you know, like, you’ve overstayed your welcome, and I’m going to bang on my drum and go out and do the like, zoo. Sing, sing my same my fears away, you know, and it’s time for you to go because there have been moments where there’s a loop, you know, in my life, I would I would just be in this loop, which is essentially hell like repeating karmic patterns, like that loop is held. And like, eventually, there is a time where like, this loop is, like exhausting and like, you know, it’s time it’s time for you to go, you know, and I’ve found it helpful to shift to actually consciously intentionally shift. Ultimately as souls we are choosers of our frequency and so we can shift when we want to when we choose to is a dance with like, your, your soul, you know, it’s your soul dance. And, and ultimately, it’s everything is chosen your experiences are chosen. And there’s no right or wrong way, it’s ultimately what your preference is and how you choose to grow from the experience how you choose to proceed. So you can be in the muck in the mire and come out and have that journey, you can have the unified perspective, sometimes I do a combination of all five session, you know, like I’m in there, I’m coming out like this, like, I don’t know, Disney hero, or I’m like, you know, the god mind, like just tapping straight to source and like, it just goes away. Or I’m, you know, I’m weeping, you know, I’m weeping in the darkness. And in this grief and, and it’s, it’s tragic. And it’s such a rich emotion. And then I’m done with it. It’s just we hang it this tragedy frequency. I now want to laugh. You know, and I now want to laugh and play and, and, and, and celebrate, like, obviously, try and I try not to do it within the span of 10 minutes, because then that would make me a little crazy. But I tune into what feels right, you know, in those times, and this that’s the way of the earth warrior. Like, there when you are ultimately what I’ll say to this, just because I’m sensing that maybe some listeners would be like, Well, how do I navigate, but ultimately, it is a so long as you are reconnecting and affirming your connection to source God goddess universe, you know, all that is, and to your deep connection to Mother Earth like affirming this, while all everything else spirals around you. It is navigatable and you can trust whatever comes and trust your heart to whatever really is meant to be experienced in that space.
Sophia Wise One 47:20
Yes. Yeah, I’m really. I’m like, I’m here. I’m really, there’s really a thing happening. Thank you. Thank you lettuce guy for what you bring into and through? Uh, yeah, let me just listen for a second. I keep hearing feed. I keep hearing you singing phoenix rising in my head right now is one of the things that I keep hearing.
Lotus Sky 48:00
And, yeah, happy to sing the song if you if you.
Sophia Wise One 48:05
I would love that.
Lotus Sky 48:07
I’ll have to go and grab my guitar.
Sophia Wise One 48:09
Lotus Sky 48:10
Let me go ahead and grab it really quickly.
Sophia Wise One 48:13
Beautiful. Ah, I know what I was gonna say. Which is that when I was I would have these times where I would go to shift my frequency. And then and then I would get this message and guidance. It was like, but you didn’t get what you came here for yet.
Lotus Sky 48:38
Yeah, that’s, that’s real and like, and
Sophia Wise One 48:42
Like you can’t go yet. Like you’re my your wisdom brought you into this place for a purpose. And so you can’t cut it short, right? There’s like a way in which it’s like, hey, can shift your vibration and come on back. Because we have more to do.
Lotus Sky 48:52
Yeah, it’s like almost like coming back up for air.
Vagina Talks Theme Song by Sophia Wise oe 48:56
Yeah, totally. Totally.Yeah
Lotus Sky 48:59
And I totally understand what that is. Because that’s happened to me. It’s like, like, it’s a tuning in of what have you in that moment? What will truly serve you in that moment? Because some people will be so rushed to shift to a higher frequency out of resistance of the present.
Sophia Wise One 49:17
Right. You know, oh, and it prolongs it. It really does. I was thinking about that. You’re like, I would try not to do it in 10 minutes. I’m like, except when I’m in ceremony with like, 10 practitioners and all the energies there. And 10 minutes is like, literally a century, right? And then it’s like, and I do, I’m weeping and I’m laughing and I’m in my sensual power and I’m restored and I forget everything and I’m stripped of all faith in humanity and then I am a blossoming sacred plant that has information for us all in like seven minutes or less, right because of the expanded space. Like because of that like because of the lack of resistance, what can happen with a reset like with understanding of soulful faith, like a faith in my soul, right? And so it’s like if I’m my souls like, I want to give you this, and I say, Yes, thank you. Yes, thank you. Yes, thank you, instead of, yes, thank you, oh, I don’t really want that one. And they’re like, Well, I’m not giving up on you. So we’re gonna hang out here until you get it, or we’ll come back around, you’re passing on this now, that’s fine. So if I choose to trust that my soul is taking me into, into something for a reason, that it’s can actually be very expedited, and conducive in that deep supported expanse of space, like we just it like comes in, in this way. Without the resistance?
Lotus Sky 50:42
Yeah, there are certain times and containers, like for very specific containers, where the range of emotions will come, you know, and like, especially in a ceremonial setting, especially in if there’s medicine involved, like, time is a different experience. Or what I guess what I’m sharing around that is like, the, from my experience, like, I probably wouldn’t be doing it like, out in public, you know, it was, like swinging from all these emotions, like, I think in there, that’s absolutely appropriate, absolutely appropriate and necessary. And like, taught in an Earth Warrior way, There is a, there is a gift and service to groundedness and centeredness through it. So that you’re not, you’re not imbalanced. And it ebbs and flows, although in a very intentional healing session, like that could very well happen and is absolutely appropriate, necessary. Yeah.
Sophia Wise One 52:01
Thank you so much, I would love and welcome. You’re sharing your medicine.
Lotus Sky 52:09
Yeah, there’s, um, there’s something that’s kind of being called to be shared as well too, for me. And it’s, it’s around, you know, what I teach in earth warrior way around the dimension of beauty and beauty away. Calling the way of the heart, and making beautiful art out of your life as an artist of your life. And like, always returning to beauty, always returning to the beauty way, and seeing how beautiful everything is in the big, full picture. And I share that because it reminded me of this one time where a woman I loved her very much. She was coming out of ceremony and this was the next day and you can tell the medicine was still moving through her and she was out in a we were in a very beautiful location overlooking the sea. And there were white butterflies and luscious grass and beautiful trees surrounding us. And she was experiencing a death. You know, she was experiencing a death and I came up with her and
Sophia Wise One 53:28
Lotus Sky 53:29
You know, she, she shared with me this. She looked around and she looked at me and she was this is the most beautiful death I ever experienced.
Sophia Wise One 53:39
Lotus Sky 53:41
Like because we were in heaven, I could look like heaven. If you looked around, shining, the grass, the flowers, the butterflies and she was dying. She was going through a shamanic death. And she looked at me, I mean, I get emotional thinking about it. She was this is the most beautiful death I’ve ever experienced. And I’m like, wow, like I didn’t even think of it. And like this filter, and perspective of beauty, it can provide a lot of grace. In all the things are moving through in our life. It can soften experiences that are challenging. And and ultimately, I know ultimately, for every soul, the destination is beauty. But the path may not always look beautiful, but the destination is absolute beauty. And ultimately, it’s who we are as our souls. Absolutely beautiful. Just magnificent. And so this song, I wrote the song Phoenix Rising two years ago, and I was in a very low place. And I wrote it as a prayer to myself. I wrote it for myself. I was really, really sad and crying. And I would write one line. You know, I would write like two lines and I would weep for 10 minutes and then another line I would weep for another 10 minutes and the song was just, I was healing myself through the song. This was not a song that I was like what people like to hear and like, let me share them with my story. It was like this is was for me. And I didn’t even think about producing it until people heard it, you know. And I’m so glad I did. Because up to today, this song is still medicine for me. And it really brings the rebirth the experience of rebirth into full circle to the root to the return of beauty. From from the journey of of of our human life. And it’s called phoenix rising. Humble soul, seeking Wisdom. Without, within Bring forth all the Light/Love you share to this child, heart laid bare Humble soul, praying Lift this heavy veiling Raise my sunken eyes to thee I open so that I receive. Courage to uncover wounds Love to heal what’s cut and bruised Grace to Forgive those who fell And most of all, Forgive myself Hold me so that I may grieve. And guide me when it’s time to leave. The past, I lay it down to rest And once again I resurrect Haya naya na, hayana ayana Haya naya na, hayana ayana (haya) There I fly as I spread my wings Soaring through the sky, the winds Claim my freedom as I sing Phoenix Rising!!! There as high as the eagles soar I Love forevermore lightness, mysteries, One Divinity I am the void and I am infinity. Haya naya na, hayana ayana Haya naya na, hayana ayana (haya) V4: There I delve in the deep blue sea Honor the lessons that come before me Like the waves, I ebb and flow Learn to release and there I let go There I walk upon the Earth so gently Trust the path that unravels before me At night I’m guided by the moon and the stars The Sun never fails to meet me at dawn I am supported by endless Guides Heaven assists and Mama provides Move with Love and move with Ease It is with Gratitude that I am Free I am God/the Goddess and God/the Goddess is Love As below, so up above lightness, mysteries, One Divinity I am reborn into Infinity guys
Sophia Wise One 1:05:39
Yes. Thank you
Lotus Sky 1:05:58
It’s a it’s an honor and blessing and joy truly to share this song with everyone. And haya naya, in particular, it’s not just a random collection of syllables, although I thought it was first when I was first channeling this language but it actually has meaning in other languages. So in Arabic, haya life and naya means new. So new life. I received that chant haya naya. Hayana ayana in a ceremony and I didn’t know what it meant. And then I integrated into the song phoenix rising and looked it up. I was like, I wonder if there’s some meaning to this. And haya means life and naya means new life and in sanskrit hayana means on the right path, keep going moving forward. Ayana means flower blooming. So together in this chant. Haya naya na, hayana ayana . It’s a it’s it’s your my new life on a right path moving like a flower blooming?
Sophia Wise One 1:07:17
Say it again.
Lotus Sky 1:07:20
Say the chant again or the meaning?
Sophia Wise One 1:07:22
Lotus Sky 1:07:25
Haya naya na, hayana ayana. My new life on the right path moving like a flower blooming. Yeah. And you repeated it’s a energetic prayer, and even the, the combination of the tones of A which is heart opening and the HA which is a breath which is the breath and so and then the direction of the NYA. it’s it’s, it’s it’s going up, it’s going forward. It has medicine in it. So is really one of my most beloved heart songs, even to this day has served me supported me. And it’s a blessing to be able to share it with you all.
Sophia Wise One 1:08:16

What I’ll share is that you know, the time that we’re in right now is a time of falling in love with who we truly are our divine identity. And a lot of the purging that’s happening is to release all that is not in alignment with our truth to welcome it go return to your breath and when we when we asked to be to bring to bring in high frequencies, it calls for things that are not in alignment to be released and in and we can permit grace and love and beauty through that it’s possible and and that’s what I wish for you there’s so much support around and you know the the destinies is beauty the destinies is love and it’s also ironically, always been here now.
