Wild is the Wind
Wild is the Wind

I, for one, am affected profoundly by the waves and changes within the climate. Thankfully, I have a lifestyle that allows for many movements of exceptional creativity, and sometimes the lows that come with overhanging clouds and the build-up towards a storm.
I have been noticing this for years, and now am in a place where I can allow these climatic moods to pass through me. Also, these climate currents pertain to carry within them, a taste and glimpse of the collective consciousness not only of humanity but all life. Is it because within these winds and waters are the seeds, tears, fur, feathers and scales of natural life? Does weather cross-pollinate the stories of every species? Can we hear one another on the wind, taste one another in the water, can we be warmed by others through the sun, and cooled by the icy fingers of frost? Are the invisible currents using this channel to correspond with humankind? For me, this is an all-resounding - yes!
Are us women, remembering our intrinsic symbiosis with nature, does the weather become the implement of communication? Or are we still too busy to notice?
The breaking down of our current climate is imploring us to pay attention. Nature and her elements are reorganising and recalibrating her landmasses - will we allow ourselves to migrate, or hold on to our homes, knowing they are not safe.
We often see witches using spells to manipulate the weather, but that does not interest me. Now is not the time for assuming any kind of control, but relinquishing it. I prefer instead to be touched by the weather. To listen and harmonise with its expression, to hear the stories carried within, to take its hand and be lead to where it wants to take me.
And this piece of writing was one such place.
If this kind of talk interests you, I am doing a Live and Recorded talk on Thursday on the Systematic Disempowerment of Women's Bodies (and of course, the how not to let that happen!)


Anaiya Sophia

About the Author

Aletheia Sophia (also published under the name of Anaiya Sophia) is a Châtelaine, Living Grail and Author/Whisperer of Heart Opening Wisdom. She once taught workshops throughout the world and was best known for the creation of Sacred Body Awakening. Now, you will always find her at home in the French Pyrenees where she has taken on an almighty project – the restoration of an old Catholic summer house into an educational wisdom hub, temple, animal sanctuary and place of grace.

Known for showing up as a trailblazing resource of unapologetic truth and transparent courage, her heart is both fierce and tender.  She carries an oral message that stirs the remembrance of a continuous lineage with the Feminine Principle that throughout the centuries has preserved its spiritual dignity, without the need for permission or recognition from any other source.

Her books include:

  • Open your Heart with Kundalini Yoga (Harper Collins, 2002)
  • Mini Size Me (Lulu, 2005)
  • Pilgrimage of Love (Lulu, 2010)
  • Womb Wisdom (Inner Traditions, 2011)
  • Sacred Sexual Union (Inner Traditions, 2013)
  • The Rose Knight. Part I: Sophia (Lulu, 2014)
  • Sacred Relationships (Inner Traditions, 2015)
  • Fierce Feminine Rising (Inner Traditions, 2020)
  • The Grail King. Part II: Logos (Lulu, 2022)

Aletheia lives in the Cathar region of Southern France with her beloved husband Pete Wilson. Together they run Les Contes, a bed-and-breakfast at the base of Montsegur where individuals, families and large groups can come and stay.  Les Contes is a truly extraordinary place, with a bountiful healing presence.

Aletheia is able to conduct Baptism, Marriage, Divorce and Death Ceremonies as there is a Chapel and Spring on-site.
