Finding Forgiveness and Freedom… Universal Lessons for Us All

Life was falling apart. Within the space of three years, Sonia Choquette had suffered the unexpected death of two close family members, seen her marriage implode, and been let down by trusted colleagues. And sympathy was not forthcoming. "You're a world-renowned spiritual teacher and intuitive guide," people jeered. "How could you not have seen this coming?" Having intuitive abilities didn't make her superhuman, however. Nor did it exempt her from being wounded or suffering the pain of loss and the consequences of our all-too-human traits such as anger, resentment, and pride-traits that can lead even the best of us to stray from our spiritual path.

In order to regain her spiritual footing, Sonia turned to the age-old practice of pilgrimage and set out to walk the legendary Camino de Santiago, an 820-kilometer trek over the Pyrenees and across northern Spain. Day after day she pushed through hunger, exhaustion, and pain to reach her destination. Eventually, mortification of the flesh gave way to spiritual renewal, and she rediscovered the gifts of humility and forgiveness that she needed to repair her world.

Sonia shares more about it in this heartwarming video:

In this riveting book, Sonia shares the intimate details of her grueling experience, as well as the unexpected moments of grace, humor, beauty, and companionship that supported her through her darkest hours. While her journey is unique, the lessons she learned-about honoring your relationships with others as well as with your own higher self, and forgiving all else-are universal.

While Sonia learned many things during her trek, here are just a few of the many lessons you’ll learn in Walking Home:

  • Asking for Help

I could ask my spirit guides to help me out, and they did, all the time. I just couldn’t ask people to help me. That was imposing, and just plain wrong. This warped message was proving, more and more, to be the great undoing of all of my relationships…

I was so angry with so many people and had ended so many relationships because of my over-giving tendencies and subsequent backlog of resentment that I couldn’t stand myself anymore.

Unless I got this part of my inner life balanced once and for all, I could never be truly happy in my life or in my relationships.

  • Compassion

The only thing that brought me peace was to fully feel my human experience and accept that no matter what had transpired, in this or any life, underneath it all people do what they think is right or necessary at the time, and because of that, we are all both victims and perpetrators. We are all wounded, and wound one another because of it. And we are all innocent, too. And for that I had compassion for all of us.

  • Forgiveness

In my wounded state, I didn’t know how deeply my behavior affected others. In forgiving everyone else, I knew I too needed to be forgiven. You can’t force-feed forgiveness either.

Forgiveness could not come about with a spiritual bypass that ignored my feelings or by having others tell me what to feel. I had to walk through it all in order to forgive. Nothing is too big to forgive. I was injured and injuring. And still I knew I was a beautiful spirit who was loved by God. We all are.

  • Faith

We only have to have faith in others and in life, be patient and stay grounded when the unexpected occurs, and remember to pray and have faith that we will always receive the love and support we need if we let go and allow it.

What Sonia ultimately found along the path to Walking Home was forgiveness and a sense of wholeness she had long forgotten existed. Most of all, she found her true home, the home that lies within and remains timeless, ageless and pure. What will you find on your walk home?

About the Author

  VIEW AUTHOR'S WEB SITE

Sonia Choquette is a world-renowned intuitive and spiritual teacher who specializes in helping others recognize that we are all endowed with a sixth sense that we can count on. A masterful teacher committed to strengthening intuition in our daily lives, she is the best-selling author of ten books and numerous audio editions.

A highly trained intuitive, with extensive background in the mysticism of East and West, Sonia was educated at the University of Denver and at the Sorbonne in Paris, and holds a Ph.D. in metaphysics. Sonia says, “I am intuitive because I was encouraged at all times to be awake, aware, and guided by my sixth sense. I grew up in an environment that treated intuition not only as natural, but actually essential to successful navigation in life. Intuition is a gift that we all have, that we can all experience, that we can all trust and that we all need!"

In working with people for more than 32 years of almost daily one-on-one private consultations, Sonia insists that the sixth sense is natural to us all. Whether it’s those “hunches” or “feelings” or “vibes,” everyone has them, but unfortunately most people dismiss or ignore them and sadly miss the benefits. With the onset of the changing world we now live in, Sonia emphasizes that using our intuition is “no longer optional. Working with and strengthening our intuition is becoming more and more fundamental to our ability to live harmoniously with ourselves and others in the new world order.”
Paying attention to the sixth sense, learning to listen, to trust it, to train oneself to call on its guidance, these are the challenges facing six-sensory people trapped in a five-sensory culture. Approaching human potential “from the inside, out,” Sonia offers a unique brand of grounded and practical techniques for people to use in order to claim their intuitive voice and incorporate it into everyday life. Sonia’s mission is to help people integrate a strong and trustworthy intuition into their daily lives. She guides them in how to build a psychic scaffolding to support their sixth sense so they can be bigger than they’ve ever thought possible. She teaches that our psychic sense’s primary function is to guide our soul’s growth and keep us connected to our path and purpose. Without its direction we lose our way. In her first book, The Psychic Pathway, Sonia states, “The psychic pathway i the pathway of the soul. It is a pathway of life lived with the belief and understanding that you are a soul, and that spiritual growth is your primary purpose.”

Sonia's own path has encompassed numerous best-selling books published in more than 23 countries, speaking and conducting workshops around the globe, thousands of grateful clients and a home in Chicago that she shares with husband Patrick Tully, daughters Sonia and Sabrina, and a poodle named Miss T.
