Transcript Interview Episode with Sophia Demas
Updated: Oct 26, 2022
Sopia: [00:00:00] How I feel that this divine intelligence, universal consciousness, God, I use the word God, that's my go to, communicates with me through coincidence. So, the key, and this is the key, is taking action. So, the coincidence happens and then you realize, oh wow, this is a coincidence. Now you can say, oh, wow, what a coincidence, and move on.
And then that's where it stays. Or you take action.
laurin: Hello friends, and welcome to Curiously Wise. I am your host Laurin Wittig, and today I have Sophia Demas with me. She is an author and I wanna call her a Course in Miracles, though I know that that title is taken. But she's really got an interesting story to share today, [00:01:00] and I just wanna welcome you here with us, Sophia.
Sopia: Thank you so much for inviting me.
laurin: So we're gonna be talking about a lot of different things that I call spirit guides. Some people call coincidences, synchronicities, miracles. So, Sophia and I have a lot of overlap in our experience with being guided. We have a little bit of different ways of thinking about it in places, but I don't think it's big places.
So for me, I'm just gonna share my sort of origin story of working with my spirit guides. And that is, I was actually at a writer's conference with my best friend, who I call my chief instigator, cuz she likes to say, “Try this.” And she had met somebody who spoke to their guides or conversed with their guides through writing.
Now I was a writer, that was easy for me to do. I pulled out my computer. She said, just write a question and see what comes through and write down whatever comes into your head. Don't stop and edit it. So, I did, and I don't even remember what I asked, [00:02:00] but my fingers just flew for three or four minutes and then I got the sense that that was enough and I looked back at it and it was not my voice.
Now as a writer, you get really familiar with your voice, but most of us sort of know how we speak and how we write ourselves. And so there was a little more formal language. There was a syntax that wasn't the way I would've chosen to put a sentence together, those sorts of things. And I honestly don't remember what the message was.
I think it was basically, Hey, hello. But it was so clearly not me. It was a life changing moment. And I still use that method pretty often, even though I've come to communicate with my guides in all sorts of ways. So, I wanna turn to Sophia now, and I would love to hear how you began to get messages from beyond, let’s call it that for now.
Sopia: It began when I was 19 years old and I was in the midst of two existential [00:03:00] issues that all 19-year-olds I'm sure go through. I felt like there was no solution. There was just no solution to this, to these two issues. And within four months it began with meeting a man.
I was 19, he was 27, and he was working on his universal concept of the universe. And I was a party girl, but there was an incredible attraction. And one of the issues was, so far, I had bought my mother's concept of no sex until marriage. And all of a sudden, I'm like, you know what?
This is working for me very well. And I thought, what if I don't get married? Which I really didn't want to get married. I thought, Am I gonna die a virgin? You know? And anyway, so, I was having real troubles with that. Well, meeting this man and having a dream that was so [00:04:00] impactful. And he, I thought it was a premonition of my death, my own death.
And what he told me was, no, that symbolizes a part of you should die because it's not working for you and opening for the new. And of course, he was the one, and it was the most amazing experience that these two issues were resolved with the help of this man. And then, like, we just fell apart.
I mean, it was four months and he was like this angel that came in helped me. And then there he went and I thought, wait a second. This is really weird because two issues I could not find a solution to were solved and I was transformed.
So I started paying attention [00:05:00] to these things that would happen and then they would happen and I would say, thank you. And I would tell my friends my miracle stories and they would go, Oh, these things only happened to you.
And I found it kind of annoying. And then 10 years ago, oh, and a medium had told me I was gonna write a book. I did not wanna write a book. Absolutely not. And, and I think that's the crux of why I decided to write the book, is because I didn't wanna get married.
I didn't want children and I did not wanna write a book. And normally we are told that we should manifest our desires. You know, thoughts become things. But I have come to believe that we don't always know what's the best for us. You know, there's a higher power that knows better than we do.
Yet, yet, and I don't know why, but yet we are [00:06:00] given free will. So I have found that the more you align your desires with the bigger will, the more things will come to you. And so this medium had told me I was gonna write a book and she was like world renowned. And I thought, oh, just because she's a world renowned doesn't mean that she, you know, gets it every time.
And I argued with her and I said, “Absolutely not.” I said, I have nothing to say. And I said I'm a people person, I'm not gonna sequester myself somewhere and write a book. Though out of the picture and she just looked at me and when I finished, I remember this word for word. She said, “Spirit says when she's ready, there are many spirits here to help her and many hands on earth.”
And I thought, okay, fine lady. And so, so, so, it was 2011 [00:07:00] when I turned 60. so I, as I said before, I did not wanna get married and I was very successful being single until I was 45. Okay? And then I did not want children. I wanted to focus on my three careers.
