About Catrina Sophia….

I wear no titles.
I assign myself no labels.
My passion for words, the gift of being able to translate, articulate, describe a thousand emotions, carries its own description of perfection. Uncategorized in my skill, I freely express my word, my truth.

Introducing myself, I go by the name of Catrina Sophia.  And I appreciate the time you have taken to stop by. It’s a pleasure to have you.

You should know that life is the spring-board to every piece I produce.  As I continue to plough what has been set within me,  I can only imagine what this harvest will become.

For me, the beauty of life often lies in the words I find to articulate it….those moments where what my eyes have seen and what my mind has caressed, becomes birthed through words.

I believe that the sadness of painful experiences only remain sad and painful for as long as they are left unspoken, unexpressed, unreleased, un-birthed…

People often say that actions speak louder than words and that can be very true. Silence can speak a million words all by itself – but sometimes, the truth can go unnoticed in silent action. Silence has its own frequency.  I myself spent many years being choked by silence.  Nobody would have known!  My voice was lost. Depleted. Weakened by situations outside of my control.   I grow to accept and give thanks for these sequences of events for two key reasons:

1. Those who do not know their own voice cannot nurture the voice of another

2. My gift was nurtured whilst I had no voice – still, there was an internal word that saved me.

I’ve found that real connections, those potent encounters, interactions, experiences, are sometimes best found and felt when silence is broken.  There is a time for silence and there is a time to speak!!

Givinbirth2word is an entity inspired by my past, present and future.  The future remains bright as long as I am able and free enough within myself to write.  It’s easy to pick up a pen, grab a piece of paper, but to ask your mind and your soul to connect for a fusion of clarity is an event much more difficult to master.

Givinbirth2word is proof that life lives in expression; that healing lies in exploration of soul through a language of hope; what the eyes see is only truly birthed when words meet them.  And so, I dare you to speak……Because somehow, there is life in it….

Words are like the light shining in on a dark tunnel; like the rise that tells the earth to awake; like the fall that tells the world to sleep; the difference between chains and freedom; between the cry of a woman giving birth and joy of a woman giving birth.  The experience can be extremely painful, but in the end, it is worth the creation it produces…

So, I dare you to speak….I dare you to join me….x

    I’m supposed to be doing school work, but I ran across your article on realtalented’ s page. I dig how you analyze the connection between our words and how they influence our individual and social universes. You have a gift sistah, and if we all share those resources with one another we can become so much stronger than we are right now. Build off the talents of one another. Gain a deeper understanding of ourselves. Know thy self. In understanding your self, you understand the world around you.

    Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you for your words Nianda. I appreciate your thoughts. It’s such a beautiful thing when our individual frequencies connect. I do not take for granted these moments of fusion!

      The deeper you go within, the wider you reach outwardly.

      Know You, Stay True – always x
