Meet Destiny Sophia
Mindset Specialist: Guided Meditation, Breathing Coach and Expressive Arts Therapy M.A
I took a gap year after high school; I was going to work in London at the famous Harrods. However, I found myself disenchanted with my choices and dreamed of something more adventurous. On a holiday to visit my family living in the Caribbean, I decided to join the yachting industry and spent the next seven years working as a private chef and sailor.
I was full of youthful naivety. My learning curves steep and my personal challenges plenty. What I was learning would later help me develop the mindful practices I now teach. Develop your tool box and use what you have available to you. You are the creator of your own destiny!
Mindfulness is the ability to choose where you place your attention and to keep it there. Keep it there? This is the tough part right? Mindfulness is not a place you arrive but rather the journey. Thoughts come and go, the trick is too not attached to or follow the thought but rather let it pass or flow like water.
Meditation is not about mastering the practice but rather about learning to let go. I have spent many days looking out into the nothingness of the ocean, as well as countless hours exploring the landscape of my mind finding connection, rejuvenation and hope. When meditating, it helps to be guided, and I do just that in my sensory meditations.
What does a sensory meditation look like? I take you on a journey to meet an aspect of yourself you wish to nourish. With the sensory approach, we connect and communicate with your mind and body through your five senses. We breath and we prepare for the journey. We know that the slightest adjustment to your course at seas means that your final destination will be very different from before. Much the same with a mindful practice, it is never too late to start making little adjustments!
Aquamarine is also the crystal of courage, inner strength and soft resilience. It also evokes purity and spirituality.
My approach to mindfulness and meditation is perhaps not traditional but it works for me and maybe it can work for you.
I am also a trained and experienced creative facilitator, a therapeutic art life coach, a trained E.X.I.T (Expressive Arts in Transition) facilitator, an expressive arts therapist, a YogaBody breathing coach and a trained Yoga Nidra facilitator. I hold a Masters in Expressive Arts Therapy with a minor in psychology. I am passionate about co-creating a space with you to nurture a greater connection with yourself.
