Sofia Hayat's journey from a model to becoming a nun is quite mind-boggling to the common mind. The lady changed her name from Sofia Hayat to Gaia Mother Sofia, got her breast implants removed and even proclaimed to the world that she would stay celibate for life.
In her quest to find inner peace, Gaia Mother Sofia has been regularly updating her Facebook and Instagram with photos from her pilgrimage trips in India.
On her recent visit to Aurangabad, things took a crazy turn and Sofia posted a video where she seems to be crying and talking about the overwhelming power that emanates from the Lord Shiva temple, particularly from the lingham.
She describes the feeling as giving birth to Lord Shiva!
Kailash temple in Aurangabad is so so powerful. I couldn't breathe. I felt a massive magnetic energy draw my head to the Shiv Lingh. I was shaking for 1hr. I could not lift my head from the Shiv Lingh it was stuck like a magnetic. Something so powerful is happening. Om namah shivaya. My body is changing. Today I know I gave birth to Shiva. Today he came back to me and is inside me. I felt scared for such a big powerful change in my body. I am changing back to who I am. The Gods are coming back. The power in me is so great. Shiva is here inside me, I am inside the shiv lingham. It is so powerful I am shaking in my very soul. The time is here. Sacred children . The universe is me..is you you are everything. Om Namah shivaya According to Linga Purana, the lingam is a complete symbolic representation of the formless Universe Bearer - the oval shaped stone is resembling mark of the Universe and bottom base as the Supreme Power holding the entire Universe in it.Similar interpretation is also found in the Skanda Purana: "The endless sky (that great void which contains the entire universe) is the Linga, the Earth is its base. At the end of time the entire universe and all the Gods finally merge in the Linga itself." In yogic lore, the linga is considered the first form to arise when creation occurs, and also the last form before the dissolution of creation. It is therefore seen as an access to Shiva or that which lies beyond physical creation.
In the caption to the video she writes,
"Today I know I gave birth to Shiva. Today he came back to me and is inside me. I felt scared for such a big powerful change in my body. I am changing back to who I am. The Gods are coming back. The power in me is so great. Shiva is here inside me, I am inside the shiv lingham."
