Sonia was educated at the University of Denver and the Sorbonne in Paris, and holds a Ph.D. in metaphysics from the American Institute of Holistic Theology. A member of the Transformational Leadership Council, she is also the host of her own weekly radio show, Six Sensory Living. Today, Sonia shares her morning practice:
“I begin each morning with what I call my "breakfast of champions." I begin with three minutes of circular breathing to music. To do this, I raise my arms above my head and inhale "ah" then pull my arms to my sides as I exhale "ha." This wakes up my brain and body and floods it with life giving oxygen. (I actually created a song to go with this practice which is available as a free download on my website. It's called “Love your Life.")
Next, I sit quietly for ten minutes and do what I call "sourcing." This is a meditative practice where I place my palms on my lap face up and pray for my divine source to fill me with the love, strength, and grace I need to fulfill my highest purpose for this day. In this time I open my heart and mind to receive blessings and guidance and anything else I need to help me serve in the best possible way.
During this time I open to receive divine energy to fuel me in every way.
I finish this fifteen-minute morning practice by naming out loud my three most important intentions for the day. Then I stand, stretch, and start my day with a great cup of coffee with steamed milk!”
