Energy Medicine with Sophia Othman

Sophia Othman
Energy Medicine Practitioner
Certified Massage Therapist
Registered Nurse

     Sophia is a graduate of Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine School through Inner source.  She came to alternative healing from a mainstream background.  Sophia was simply seeking meaning to her own life. She started out asking questions that we all ask sooner or later.  Why are we here?  What is this all about?
     At a Paul Lowe workshop she had an opening to spirit.  “I was participating in the workshop when I had a physical experience of energy running through my body.”  She told me.  “That was it, that was what I needed, to feel it in my body, to see it.” “Later in the same workshop a healer worked on me and I felt the shift.”  A hug given with awareness moved the experience to a Tantric level for her.  Sophia continued to explore her new reality through Human Awareness Institute and by delving into Osho’s books.  She submersed herself in the study of massage to better understand and sharpen her intuition.
     It was not long before she wanted to go deeper.  Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine was the perfect fit for her. “Donna was different.” Said Sophia,  “You could see the change and test the bodies systems without invading or disrupting them.” “ The most valuable point for me though is that I can empower my clients with what they need to keep well.” I can teach my clients what I know and it will work for them.”  The system that Sophia uses and teaches is based strongly on Chinese medicine.  It works with the wheel of elements earth, air, fire, wood, and metal. According to Sophia Donna did not stop there she traveled to meet with shamans and healers in many indigenous tribes and learned what worked for them.   I have had many effective sessions with Sophia myself. One minute I will have my meridians worked then shift into the Hopi pain technique. On a personal note the Hopi pain holds are among my favorites. I was a sufferer of deep and debilitating chronic pain.  I am pain free and thrilled. 
     I asked Sophia what would be good from her practice for the shift from Winter to Spring?  “ Well, be aware, invite the shift, open to it breath.  Go out side find some way to put your hands in the earth.”   “There are other things as well.” “ware green more. “     
         Wood is the element of spring.”   If you are the kind of person who leaps into the season and sunny days fill you with energy and excitement.  Mix your Wood with Metal (the green with a little silver or white) it will cool the wood a bit. And do you r five-minute routine every day that is a wonderful way to ground and get all that energy to be blissful less manic.       
      Most people though are on the other end of the spectrum feeling stuck in winter and depressive.  If you are having a tough time getting going as we near the equinox I still recommend the five-minute routine for you as well as that sit in a pleasant environment for five minutes and place one palm over you forehead(be sure to include  your hair line) and balance the hold in front with a palm across the back of your head.  Remember to do this for five minutes.  The point is to let energy flow depression comes to visit when we repress our feelings and thoughts.
 (Authors Comment) Let it go, let it flow.  Do not fight your sadness feel it.  Invite more joy in nurture your pain love it with compassion and joy.  By doing this springs thaw will move you.  Below you will find links to the five-minute routine and a useful practice for vigor and good immunity called the spinal flush.  Sophia Othman’s e-mail is also provided.

It is time to call and declare this circle

The equinox is here
The most lovely time of year for me though I love the cycle of the Mother in all her expressions the fall touches me sweetly. I feel my soul and the souls of others so deeply for me this is a time of deep intimacy with the heart of the world around me.  I celebrate all that came before me.  I dance with pride and joy on the last night of October I let my tears flow and feel the gifts.  My Mother who left this earth through lung cancer. My sweet uncle who loved me just the way I was and saw me deeply. Crossed that same Winter from lymphatic Cancer and One of the deepest loves of my life My beloved teacher Owl who left this life when I was 28 from pancreatic Cancer.  The year before she walked across so did my Grandfather.  All of them became a part of the world  around me.  Everything they taught me stays in my heart.  I think of friends and lovers that have moved on and the gifts that where left behind.  My walk with a fellow healer whom is the founder of Engage Love  Keith B. gave me a strong gentle, reminder of how to invite love and joy into wounds and the people who inflict them.  Through him I was able to connect to forgiveness of self and of others.  I am able to feel love for my genetic Father who was so abusive that he forever altered my Mother and and wounded two of his sons to the point that they carry his rage and pain as something to hurt them selves with.  I am able to feel compassion and gratitude this man that stood in front of me as a small child and said "that right there is not mine thats yours take IT in the other room.   I can feel forgiveness for and freedom from men who violated me in the past.  The tools that he shared also help me to stay in forgiveness of my self.   Now when I dance and celebrate from the 31st to the day of the dead in November. Within sorrow there is joy and even the shadows that we fear and hold a anger with hold gifts and release wonderful joy when they are seen and heard.
