Welcome to Enlightened, a podcast by me, Sophia Spallino — an audible experience that that leaves you feeling at peace, encouraged, and in touch with your soul.
This show is spirituality-focused, but episodes will vary in structure, content, and flow. The most therapeutic episodes will be guided meditations and affirmations. During these episodes, allow to me wash life-giving words over you as you rest in therapeutic harp music. I am honored to share my own inspiring guided meditations and affirmations (prayerful, powerful, and encouraging words), with my original harp music to help you relax.
Another form of relaxing shows will be episodes focusing on ASMR sounds. If you don’t know what ASMR is, allow me to explain; but let me warn you, it requires an open mind and don’t knock it until you try it with headphones in your ears. ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response; it’s a physical reaction that triggers a tingly feeling that is in your head or runs down your spine. I can create this response that relaxes your muscles and helps soothe anxiety by creating and recording comforting sounds (like whispering, brushing, tapping, scratching, plucking harp strings, and hand movements). When you listen to these episodes with headphones, you will feel as if I am providing you with up close and personal attention. My first memory of experiencing ASMR is feeling “tingles” from bedtime rituals as a toddler. When my mother would play with my hair as she whispered fairytales, she would trigger the euphoric feeling that prepared my young self for total relaxation. I aim to recreate that peaceful feeling of closeness and connection for you with my episodes of ASMR (or as I like to call it, ASMHarp).
Lastly, some shows will be more casual, so you can enjoy a raw, conversation-style episode every now and then that centers around personal development and spiritual growth. Most of all, I simply hope to encourage you with whatever personal revelations I am discovering, valleys I am growing out of, or mountains I am climbing.
If there’s anything I know God has surely called me to do, it’s to help other women feel not alone in their highs and lows. It’s not easy to find balance in this world, so most the time, I am “preaching” to myself just as much as I am sharing with you, hehe! Let’s learn and grow more enlightened together. I want you to know you are never alone.
