QUALITIES of SOPHIA PRIEST/ESS As a SPIRITUAL PEACEFUL WARRIOR
Sophia is the Goddess of Wisdom; the Wisdom of Love & the Love of Wisdom. We are the heart & hands & voice of
the Divine. We are striving to embody perfect love, trustworthiness & joy. We are each of us responsible for creating
safety & sacred space. We are choosing “Maitri” loving kindness, respect & friendliness to self & others. We Are the
Ones we've been waiting for, and with it comes great responsibility.
Responsibility – I am responsible for my life; my feelings, choices and actions. I choose to respond more and react
less. I use “I” statements. I strive to come from my highest self.
Integrity – My choices and actions are consistent with my intentions, mission and commitments. I keep my
promises! I do what I say I will. I walk my talk. My word matters! I can be counted on.
Self-awareness – I examine my thoughts, feelings and behaviors. I am aware of shadows, patterns and limiting
beliefs that compromise my integrity and these principles.
Accountability – I “own' to another when I am out of integrity. I acknowledge the consequences of my actions and
the choices and intentions behind them. I learn and grow from these lessons (AFGLO) I apologize and make amends.
I seek help when needed
Clarity – I seek to understand; to know what I want, who I am, and who I am becoming!
Mission – I seek to discover my true mission of service and choose to live in integrity with it. Being of service to the
Divine, Goddess, Temple of SOPHIA, my Sophia Spirit Heart family, Earth and community, is an honor, blessing and
a joyous gift. I serve lovingly; with an open and generous heart. (no martyrdom or self-sacrifice please)
Action – I take action to live my mission and fulfill my commitments. I ask for help when I need it. I ask for what I
want. I move through my fear. I take healthy risks.
Authenticity – I am sincere and honest in all of my dealings. I am aware of and own my feelings. I speak my truth. I
come from my heart. I am genuine and real.
Directness – I speak clearly and kindly to another of my perceptions, feelings and judgments about them. I neither
practice nor tolerate derisive, negative sideways comments or 'gossip'. I am loyal to myself and to my SOPHIA
Trust – I trust the process. I am worthy of trust. As I live these principles and values, I learn to trust and respect
myself and others. With continuity and consistency, I become trustworthy.
Unconditional Love – I love and accept all beings, without reservation. I value and celebrate our differences. I am
willing to love and accept my self as I am, right now. I achieve a life of unconditional love, by raising my
consciousness to the level from which all love flows. I set healthy boundaries where necessary.
Compassion – I see all behavior as a statement of love or a cry for help. I see and seek to heal the wound behind the
'negative' behaviors. I look for the positive intent behind all behavior and strive to forgive myself and others. I am
working on not taking others behavior towards me, “personally”.
We didn't invent these – we became aware of them and choose to live by them. Our sacred intention is to follow these
principles always and to be aware of, acknowledge, and learn from those time we don't.
