“Sophia’s engaging memoir expresses her adventurous and indomitable spirit in living her life to the full while paying attention to her inner voice that sometimes proposed an abrupt change of course to the dismay of her close family who were hoping that she would follow a more conventional route – as families often do. Her life experience enabled her to understand the role of paying attention to synchronicities in enabling miraculous transformations. This involves listening to, receiving and following inner guidance (often in silence), emotional commitment, clear intention and subsequent action. It is a blueprint for how life works from the inside out, a process already elaborated by New Thought thinkers over 100 years ago. Sophia also has a powerful inner knowingness that she is being taken care of – which in fact applies to us all if we are open. Sophia writes that ‘when I had taken action to express my intention through prayer or gratitude, it was in conjunction with a strong emotion emanating from the heart. When a coincidence was brought into my awareness, again I took action with intention and emotion.’ (p. 240)

Sophia has certainly led an interesting life, including working with Buckminster Fuller, spells as long-term student, architect, art historian, entrepreneur, dress designer and the workshop leader on Living a Fearless Life She recounts many travel adventures and some extraordinary healing incidents, as well as the moving story of Hayal (Eleni), who comes into her life as an adopted daughter. Her dreams play an important part, as does her attitude of openness, compassion and gratitude. A Course in Miracles plays a pivotal role, and her rollercoaster relationship with Frank shows how important it is to address early childhood trauma that can give rise to recurrent and self-sabotaging patterns. Another important lesson is that obstacles often turn out to be blessings in disguise – even the story of writing this book is a case in point of surrendering to a larger intent and praying for the best outcome. The clarity of living her truth comes across as an inspiration to the reader to follow suit.”

“I finished reading it late last night. Well, truth be told, it was early this morning. Once I got into the book I couldn’t put it down! This resulted in staying up way too late for several nights in a row. I blame you for my lack of sleep these last few days! I feel like I know you much better now, having shared in the extraordinary life events you have taken the time to describe so beautifully. Wow. Just. Wow. Sophia, your book is amazing – and important – especially in these challenging times!”

“You are not giving the world something and asking us to believe it is true or that it qualifies as a miracle. You are giving the world parts of your life that you found inspiring and inviting us to share in that inspiration. Your book is an invitation to celebrate the miracle perspective, not a challenge to believe in that perspective. Let that celebratory energy give your story wings.”

“I thought what an amazing journey! The book focuses on Sophia’s journey to personhood and the path she takes to achieve it. I am sure that the Dalai Lama would read it and like it.”
