Meet Eleja

My name is Eleja (rhymes with Malaysia!) and I am the founder and holder of Sanctuary of Sophia. I am a Sophianic Medicine Carrier, carrying the shamanic medicine of Sophia through the many different Christ-Sophia lineages I hold within my soul blueprint.

Like so many of us, my path has led me into places I never imagined were possible. It is difficult to share my story in a simple way because there are so many intricate details of how I have come to be where I am – I am sure you can relate! But, I do feel it’s important to give you an idea of who I am and how I came to be here now, holding the Sanctuary…

I have always been connected to God since I was a little girl, always feeling that I was here for a bigger reason and purpose. Deeply sensitive and empathic, I couldn’t understand people’s behaviors and I found myself putting on a lot of “masks” in order to protect myself because I was not like my peers and often misunderstood.

These masks remained on for most of my life.

2014

My spiritual awakening journey began at a very slow pace. I started reading books about spirituality, began meditating, and reflecting more deeply…but nothing substantial really changed. I was a classic codependent empath workaholic and wasn’t giving myself any space for my own processes, my own healing.

I wasn’t taking care of myself and it showed. I found myself in a dark night, reaching for hope, praying for a more meaningful, connected way of being, aligned to my soul.

2018 - JUNE

Everything changed for me in June when God guided me to quit my corporate marketing job without a backup plan, initiating me into my first big wave of surrender.

That weekend, I had a profound experience with the Earth and her medicine and a few days later I met my beloved sacred partner. It was a massive timeline shift orchestrated by God.

2018 - DECEMBER

6 months later, we moved across the country to begin a new chapter. Within the first couple weeks, God guided me to start igniting my psychic abilities that I had been suppressing most of my life. From there, I studied and trained under a well-known psychic medium, cultivating my abilities. This led me to discover my healing gifts as I began to work with energy naturally like I had done it for thousands of years.

2019

I unexpectedly received the call to sit in medicine with Mother Ayahuasca. This was a deep calling and cellular activation, unlike anything I had ever experienced. My beloved and I travelled to Peru where we connected with the Apus, different sacred sites including Machu Picchu and of course, connecting with Madre Ayahuasca and her medicine in sacred Shipibo held ceremonies.

My ceremonies with Ayahuasca were the true beginning of my shamanic initiation as she showed me my higher self, who I am and what I am here to hold. She helped me remember the truth of my soul and I knew my life had just changed forever. 

When I returned home, my light language started coming online.

I was taken on a shamanic journey where I was given my next steps and from there, a series of events happened that initiated me deeper into my shamanic training and remembrance of my soul origins.

I received my soul name and that I would be releasing my birth name as part of my higher self embodiment.

2020

In 2020 I began to understand that I was here on the Christos Mission and began to receive bits and pieces of a much bigger vision.

Most of my time in 2020/21 was spent healing my emotional body, working with my shadow and grieving the loss of my Mother who passed away in December of 2020. My mother’s passing unleashed all of the trauma held in my body and so I went through a very intense year of processing repressed, unconscious trauma and getting to know my body for the first time, simultaneously moving through my resistance to parts of my mission.

2021 - OCTOBER

It was time to begin using my soul name, Eleja SunStar, which was a very deep and transformative process that is still unfolding.

2021 - DECEMBER

I received it was time to begin to heal my womb and that this was the next part of my mission. I devoted myself to healing my womb, creating space for all of the hidden parts of me that were ready to be seen. My creative flow began to come in and I started getting massive downloads around all the different pieces of my mission. It was something my heart prayed for and longed for my whole life and it was finally happening. It felt like a miracle.

Reconnecting with my womb led me even closer to God, and back to Christ. Massive shifts occurred as I began to connect more deeply with Sophia, the Holy Mother.

She was able to provide profound clarity for me in many ways, including helping me to understand all of the songs I had been receiving over the years. It was her medicine, Sophianic medicine.

I finally surrendered into my path, accepting myself, my mission, who I am, and what I carry. I accepted the lineages I hold and said Yes to God and God’s Divine Will for me. It was through this experience that I went through my Christ initiation, releasing myself from all false light and getting right with the one True Living God Source.

With these gifts, I received the download for my Sacred Shamanic Medicine Circles which I held on the Spring and Fall Equinoxes of 2022. These were designed to show me how the medicine works in the circle, initiating me more deeply into sharing space with other women in this sacred way.

My trust in God, partnered with my devotion to my healing, my path and my mission is what has led me to this moment.

There is still much to learn, receive and remember, but this is where I am now, gratefully and humbly accepting my role in birthing Sanctuary of Sophia.

Sophia has shown me how the Sanctuary will grow over time, growing with me, with us. Growing with the sisterhood. We start where we are and we build on the foundation she has given us. It is meant to be a constant, a space that you can rely on to hold you throughout the many chapters of your journey.  She has held me as I have transformed to receive it, showing me how to extend that to the women of the sisterhood.

I am honored to connect with all of the women who are called to the Sanctuary and this sisterhood. It is my hope to foster relationships with every sister, seeing her for who she truly is, celebrating her as we sing and dance through life together.

Thank you for taking the time to receive me, sister.

With love & gratitude,

Eleja
