Spirit Doll – Sofiya
Sofiya is a Croation name – Meaning Wisdom. She started with a meditation, then a trip to my backyard’s crabapple tree – I wanted something with tiny branches – and then the perfect driftwood for her body – a heart – multi wool colors of purple (Wisdom/Spirit – 7th Chakra), deep blue (Intuition – 6th Chakra) and teal (Speaking Your Truth – 5th Chakra), with gentle curl white wool for her hair, speckles of moss, and amethyst stones embracing the energies of Spirit in meditation, calming, intuition … Here is how she began:
I needle felted all the wool to make her dress and matching scarf. And then she began to come together. Sofiya was very easy and calming to birth. Gentle. Strong. Wise. Calm. She’s easy to hold in your hand … you feel her supporting you! Sweet.
And then there is …
Dochas – Meaning “Hope” – Bringing Faith to the Future. She has very curly wool for hair, a feather and tiny Lake Superior stone to hold it in place, along with a variety of wool colors needle felted with moss interspersed. Her heart is a bigger Lake Superior stone and when held, your thumb fits perfectly on her heart. I gifted Dochas to a wonderful friend who calls in a Circle of Women for meditation and sharing up here in the North Country. I think the symbolism matches beautifully. Spirit’s having so much fun with this! Meet Dochas:
I’m enjoying sharing their stories with you … And grateful to Spirit and Mother Nature’s generosity in their creations.
