This special episode was originally recorded live on YouTube in April of 2020, just a few weeks into the global quarantine. The kindness and wisdom shared in it only grow in relevance as we continue on this journey into a new paradigm. There is a reason this week’s guest is known as the Intuition Queen as her gems of insight only ring more true 6 months after she shared them.

This soft, comforting episode has a few really actionable pieces of insight to help prepare for a quarantine winter and holiday season:

  • Sophia reminds us that personal growth is much like a sine wave on an overall upward trend and our current worst is still better than our old worst.
  • They also remind us that when faced with unprecedented fear and anxiety coming in from the outside like many of us are encountering, going back to your oldest and simplest tools can really help. What was the first thing that ever helped pull you out of darkness?
  • Mara reminds us that giving your hands a task- gardening, baking, learning a new instrument, practicing with an old instrument, etc.- can pull your brain out of an anxiety spiral or any other overthinking episode.
