MY STORY


Sofia-1029I call myself Sofia Wren:

Sofia, I grew up a bookish girl named for the goddess of Wisdom, forever hunting meaning and understanding. I go into the depths, including myself to find innovative solutions and insight. 

Space & Silence: the space between the words, the emptiness behind the scribbling pen, the stillness of meditation, the place that insight comes. I grew up secular but I needed answers, and I needed wisdom to answer those unsolvable problems. Something bigger always shows up, when I listen to the silence. There are always depths that language cannot reach.

Wren, a name I grew to call myself after the friendly, feisty little birds. I grew into a young woman dedicated to voicing what needs to be said, to embracing courage and vulnerability, to be free! I live for innovation, transformation and freedom, even if we have to kick the doors of limitations down and plant a boot on top of them. I’m not afraid to say no.

 

 

 Sofia Wren: Overcoming struggle, learning to write & be more myself.

Sofia-1003

My name is Sofia Wren and I was born on an island. As a little mermaid, I played with rocks on the beach and tried to jump over waves.

I’ve always been sensitive, and drawn to Mother Nature. My Momma was the Ocean.

I always loved books, and after reading fantasy novels I decided to become a priestess with magic powers. 

This is who I really am.

Other kids thought this was strange. That didn’t feel good.

And then the stormclouds came….

Something happened then, where I lost myself in the crowd.

All I could share were facts and figures that I learned about in books or school.

I couldn’t be myself because it was too hard. I was too afraid of being made fun of, of being wrong or different.

No one saw the real me until ten years later, when I started to write again.

I got so afraid of what people thought of me, that my creativity had dried up. I couldn’t finish stories and it would take years of exploring creativity, writing, spirituality, and healing to find my muse again.

 

Now I work with entrepreneurs, creators, and spiritual women, and help them to TRUST themselves and their intuition so they always know what to do next in their creative process and goals.

I help them to let go, so they can show up more authentically as themselves in the world and draw the admirers and clients that really fit them. By listening to their heart and muse, they save time and energy they could have wasted angsting and being confused, and instead make faster progress on their goals.

 

I learned how to heal from the past and let it go, so that I could create anew and get my MESSAGE out there.

No one was a role model to me growing up to show me how to be the kind of woman I really wanted to be. I didn’t have a mother. My step mother was a trip. And I was different– I loved Goddesses, and mermaids and magic, but I also loved getting As and being the best I possibly could be at all the things other people told me were important. In the end, I had to hide that different wild spirit for a long long time. During my formative years, I went from temporarily popular, to bullied, to the girl hiding behind her long hair, invisible unless I had the right answer.

I know what it is like to shut down everything that made me ME. I wouldn’t let myself express myself for fear of what might happen.

And gradually, step by step, I know what it is like to let that fear fade away and USE YOUR VOICE, be yourself, and rock it at whatever it is that you want to do for yourself (not for anyone else).

 

It’s easy to sink in stories of the past. Today I choose to rise! In spite of a painful past, I regained my creativity, my confidence and, most importantly of all, found ME.

It’s a beautiful thing to learn how to trust yourself and your intuition after a long long time. Then you always know what to do next.

 

I currently attend Loyola University studying for a Masters of Arts in Spiritual Direction so I can serve others even more deeply, and help them listen to that wise place inside and a higher power (if that feels right to them).

I’m lucky that these days, in person and online, I’m not afraid to share who I am, where ever I am, and I am thanked on a daily basis for sharing my unique perspective because it inspires other people to be more themselves. That’s the gift I want to give to other people: you can find your voice and be who you are in the world no matter how different you are or how you have been received in the past. I learned how to tap into something bigger and waste less time and energy on what other people think. You can, too

I must say that I absolutely adore your site. I found you on youtube when I was looking for stuff on Empaths and I have to say you’re one of the most unpretentious people to make one of these videos, coz nowadays the videos tend to take on this “know-it-all” aspect to them. So, thank you so much because yea it’s really nice meeting kindred spirits.
