After living a luxurious life of celebrity filled parties, red carpet film premieres and dating a string of handsome high profile men, Sofia, 41, has found a new way of living which she believes is her true calling.
Her "second coming" came after she attended a retreat where she drank Ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic tea often used by people seeking enlightenment.
"When I look at photos of the old me I still smile. I feel I was meant to go through that life so that I can witness the real world.
"But now my life is like a second coming. My reason for existing now is to take away all the negativity and to reveal the truth of our our existence."
Her career went from strength to strength often earning £20,000 a photoshoot as a model.
And in 2012 she was chosen as one of the Big Boss celebrity housemates, India’s popular version of Celebrity Big Brother .
“I lived a life of crazy parties and extreme wealth where people constantly took drugs but all the while there was a sense of emptiness.
“I very much got caught up in that and took cocaine myself at parties. It was an easy life to live but it was very wrong.
“They often partied all weekend and sometimes got home at 11am on a Sunday; I had no idea where they’d been.One used prostitutes and once took me along thinking it was sexy but it made me feel sick and I realised this wasn’t the life I wanted. Deep down it was empty.”
Then, in September, Sofia went to an Ayahuasca retreat, in Yorkshire. Ayahuasca is an hallucinogenic tea, famous in South America, used by people seeking enlightenment.
“Someone I knew had taken it and told me that they saw a vision of me so I wanted to know what it was all about. What would I experience?”
I had an out of body experience,” she said.
“I saw the Goddess Isis, Mother Mary, so many and I was clearly told I was on this earth to awaken it.”
Coincidently, that same day Sofia tragically found out her father had died.
During the tea ceremony she said her father took over her body.
"My parents didn’t agree with my lifestyle so we had not been speaking for 13 years.
"But when I lost my father I suspected I would see him. During the spiritual ceremony my father took over my body and talked through me. It was very sacred.
"And I was at peace at his funeral because of that experience.
"I believe I would’ve been a mess and killed myself if that had not happened.
"I believe Ayahuasca saved me and showed me what happens when you die and helped me deal with my grief."
