It's time to Let Go of Romantic Illusion

I awoke this morning with the ache  of the betrayal of love. I am an empath so I feel these things in my being. How can I reach you my sister and hold you in my bosum, to comfort you in your sale of your soul for the sweet promise of crumbs thrown to you by the man who wants a goddess? How can I pierce the veil of pride that you hold around your heart and soul?
How can I hit your being with the truth of the veil of illusion of love that you have been fed generation after generation?   

This temple of our woman is longing to come back home to the love that shines from our hearts and our being. How man wants her to step up. Her man hates himself when her treats her like mud but he is only reflecting how she is treating herself. He has no idea of what love truly is, she's meant to show him this path. But she keeps hiding behind the lies of this veil covering her beauty, her radiance & her shining light.

"Please claim me deep masculine consciousness, I want nothing less."
Our soul calls in the night and yet we keep repelling this depth from our own illusions.She crys in her sleep, only to wake up covering another betrayal the next day.

When will it stop? When us older sisters, the crones of this world that can face the  mirror every day with wrinkles and still stand proud of non-betrayal of our souls and shout yes to life. The crones who have tasted the depth of the well of suffering. The ones who don't believe in the lies of love. Who know beyond the wrinkles and the veils of romantic love what true love beacons to the being and the soul.

STOP – We have to hold our sister's hand and lead her to the place of the temple of the goddess
and show her the way of true love. Then they can lead their warriors to victory. They can
help these men who feel lost to come home to the truth of their purpose in life. To let go of
the reins of the lies that they had to endure from their goddess.

Please sweet divine Laxmi help me, release me into a pool of abundance of truth of love so
I can hold my sister's hands and lead them home to their soul and hearts. Help me to help them
open from all the hurts and betrayals they have endured and encrusted in their own hearts.
To know what true love is, what it feels like to rise instead of falling in love. May every woman
drip with the succulence of the goddess and shine her light so that our gods can set forth on
purpose in presence and consciousness to serve this planet.

Oprah interviewed Ali Mcgrath yesterday who is now 75 and she revealed how she had
prostituted herself to Hollywood and all the lies that that represents and finally she can sit
with her grey hair and feel that wholeness inside and live a more authentic life. Her definition of spirituality was being authentic - comes from learning from her ego patterns of the 9 in the enneagram to be real.  Mine is as a 4 in the enneagram - to know true love beyond tragic romantic. Why wait till 75 to feel this, wake up to truth, surrender to a divine that is present for all of us that loves us and bring the fire back into your belly for life and love.

Step up, feel the rage of your own betrayal. Go forth and scream, dance, sob for the lies that
have run your life and held you back being your true self. Roll in the crumbs of love  you have settled for and shine forth on a new path of power in your solar plexus, knowing in your gut, openness & sweetness in your heart.

Go forth sisters and share the truth of who you truly are what your gift is to share with the world.



Depression Naturally

Please send to anyone you know is depressed

Depression, Wall around the Heart, Shutdown, Disconnected, Lost

Do these words sound familiar?The statistics say one in 6 people will suffer depression at some time in their life.93% of people have a wall around their heart and why would we want to keep it there when our heart is the core of our being, the centre of our soul and the seat of all our creativity.Do you truly want to be free of this heaviness – there is a way out and it will take a bit of courage from your part and the rest is taken care of.  Covid has increased depression symptoms in so many people and they are searching for something else like mindfulness 
and healing.

What is Depression

It is not heriditary and not a mental illness.  It is a series of unhealthy patterns to avoid strong
emotions.  Sometime in the past a decision was made not to feel, to either strategise, run from,push down numb out, pull back to avoid the natural flow of emotion in life.

Have you ever asked why is this wall here and what is it truly?It has appeared when somehow our soul has been assaulted in some way and what it is is layers and layers of trapped emotions. Releasing this heart wall is the best gift you can give yourself in this lifetime. The physical effects of having a heart wall are often pain the neck, discomfort and tightness in the shoulders and chest pain. Emotionally it has kept you in depression, isolation and numbness and not being able to find love. If you release this heart wall, your creativity will be unlocked your abundance will flow and you will have back your lifeforce as it takes so much energy to keep it in place. Many people explain it like –“ I've got my mojo back.”
When you open to your true self, your soul & your essence, food tastes better, life and nature smile back at you and you feel uncontrollable gratefulness and joy. You cannot put a price on this openess – it is sublime.#thejourneymethod

Traditionally, the causes of depression are reckoned to be difficult life circumstances like what we are going through now.. But, harsh though our life traumas may be, they are simply catalysts, triggers of depression, and not the real cause. The root causes lie deeper. It’s time to feel whatever comes up, no matter what. It’s time to respond to life in an emotionally truthful way and stop shutting down your body.

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”
― Rumi

Paru, the owner of Shunyata Retreat and Day Spa knows all too well of her own heart wall.and the depressed state she was in for 10 years.
Her wall went up when she lost custody of her child and lost all her life savings 20 years ago but was fortunate enough to live in Byron Bay – the mecca of self development and spirituality and had 2 amazing teachers who changed her life and helped her open again to her true self. One being Brandon Bays with TheJourney and the other David Deida with openness. “ We often need a dark night of the soul to truly wake up.” But if she knew what she knows now after working with people's heart walls for 10 years, she wouldn't need to have shut off and isolated herself in deep suffering.

Having just attended a consciousness and sexuality conference – the theme was based on the relationship with self. She noticed a little closure once again and on completing the conference noticed how amazing it felt to go out and open the people in the restaurant. Even when we get into a spiritual journey and path – the more awareness we have we can easily slip back into that shutdown and separation. But opening after a long time shut down, needs trust and safety,buckets of self love and self care and gentleness. It took me 2 years to finally do David Deida's workshop as I was scared of shutting down. He often quotes that when the pain becomes too intense to remain closed then we open. Being disconnected, shut down is incredibly painful and being open is so so sublime. Paru believes a lot of heart attacks can be caused from shut down closed hearts.

“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
― Rumi

When we live with an open heart the world opens up with us. When we live with an open heart we are magnetic attracting people into our lives who are love the beauty of openess, who love the sparkle in our eyes. Openness is sexy. People are drawn to this. Hearts are where true happiness is. Physical, spiritual heart is our true self. Our essence is joy, love for others and the nice feelings that come from an open hear

The Journey is really for anyone who wants to get to the root cause of depression.
To address these deep seated patterns that see some sort of emotional pattern driving the behavior to the surface “requires a lot of courage,”

In a real world we would love to function as healthy adults with firm boundaries and self love
but unfortunately our parents sometimes weren't healthy and that was passed onto to us
and it forms the egoic self or the wounded child. If our parents were alcoholics then our
boundaries are less firm and co-dependence often plays out in relationships and we keep
unconsciously projecting our wounds on our partners. We go into Age Regression each
time our partner hits this wound and react like a child.


People will often push your boundaries in life and this doesn't feel good. It is up to you
to take your power back and not allow them to treat you like this. But people often don't
know how, as the wounded child ,to take their power back.

If somebody treats you with unkindness, it's likely they have endured similar treatment in the past from others, and are only repeating unconscious patterns in search of a love they cannot find. They will continue to repeat until they wake up from their nightmare of projection, and truly see who you are, who they are, who we all are. This is when judgement comes in, but if you realise that it is not their true selves playing out but their egos, then how can you judge.

The Enneagram and Ego Patterns

Our true self is under all these layers of conditioning and this conditioning (egoic self) gets exhausting when we can't keep playing it out. It was formed in the first 6 years of life and depending on your childhood, it can be very strong as it is a form of survival in this sometimes cruel world. This can come at any time on our soul or spiritual path,but the heart is screaming to open and the soul is wanting to come home and this is when people usually come to Shunyata.

Maybe they come as they have contracted cancer and decided to know why they have it, maybe they have had a painful relationship breakup or a death that has brought a grief that can't move. Maybe the shutdown of the heart has become unbearable . Maybe they don't know what is going on but something doesn't feel right anymore.

Having observed and worked with people now for 10 years and deeply increased my awareness a of patterning – I am in awe of how quickly people can get to the core of what their soul is trying to tell them. I haven't changed the Ultimate Bliss Package once in 10 years cause it works.

Some of us need clarity of where to go next or what our life calling, purpose or gift is.

Would you love to clear these blocks?
Would you love to know your true self and not the automatic ego patterning that has been running you?
Would you like to know what goes wrong in relationships and how to change these patterns?
Would you like to open your heart and come back to your vitality & aliveness?

Freedom in this Lifetime - THE INVITATION - 20th Aug 2014

Freedom in this Lifetime - THE INVITATION It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
It doesn’t interest me how old you are.I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love
for your dream for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon...I want to know if you have touched
the centre of your own sorrow if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shrivelled and closed from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain mine or your own without moving to hide it or fade it or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy mine or your own if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you  to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful to be realistic to remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true.I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself. If you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul. If you can be faithless and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see Beauty even when it is not pretty every day.And if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure yours and mine and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,“Yes.”
It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have.I want to know if you can get up after the night of grief and despair weary and bruised to the bone and do what needs to be done to feed the children.
It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here.I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied.I want to know what sustains you from the inside when all else falls away.I want to know if you can be alone with yourself
and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.

Spiritual Awakening & Freedom from Mind

How is your life going? Do you feel you are truly livng or just existing? Do you feel alive
and excited about what tomorrow is going to bring or just going day by day same old same old.
Are you feeling blocked, stuck, angry, emotional or out of control? Is your health not good
and there is something taking your energy and vitality for life Have you tried everything physically and you are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired?

You are not alone. Many people are in the same boat and have no idea what is happening.
This could be physical or it could be emotional or it could be your soul calling to shift something
or deal with something that has been swept under the carpet. There are many times when life takes us to these places. The earthquakes are one of these times or it is around the age of 28-31 – they call this Saturn Return when the way of living up till then just doesn't work anymore. Another time for a woman is menopause or for a man around the same age 46-55 mid life crisis.

It could be that every relationship that you go into is bringing up the same stuff. Fear, anger,
confrontation, betrayal, hurt, shutdown. Every thing you go to do is blocked, nothing is working.
It could be financial disaster and you lose everything. It could be just the overwhelm of being
a parent and not knowing where to go from here and where to source the energy required to be
a good role model.

These things are very common at some time in people's lives but they have come up for a reason.
You can get to the core of this and free it within yourself. Most often this is related to your relationship with your parents and needs to be dealt with from the core and come to a forgiveness and completion. It could be you need to change some old beliefs that don't serve you anymore.
It could be you need to know the difference between attachment and love and fear and love in relationship. It could be conditioning or ego patterns that you are carrying from your parents that is continually causing suffering. Or it could be the images you carry of yourself that can't be kept up any more and the disturbances in your thought patterns.

There are so many things that be set right to set you free into fulfillment, transformation and freedom. Are you ready to start over? Are you ready to jump out of bed with causeless joy to
welcome the day? Are you ready to know true unconditional love in all your relationships in life.

Paru has spent 20 years in full search of this freedom and awakening and has recently returned
from India excited and ready to share these amazing techniques. She had been working with
Conditioning and ego patterns for many years and has now just topped off with many other
freedom techniques. You have to experience these in your life not just talk about them from the mind to make them change your being.

Shunyata provides this perfect sanctuary to do this in. Right on the ocean, birdsong, peace
and tranquility you wake up to. You start your day with yoga, open your heart and move the
energy through the body, eat delicious but healthy nourishing food, get great counselling, sublime pampering and body work and clear these blocks on a cellular level. It's all about you with no judgement just held by the hand and taken home to your true self. You are helped unmask the veils of illusion and lies you have been telling yourself that are blocking you in life and taken back to the authenticness of your being.

There is causeless love and causeless joy waiting for you? It has never been a better time to
jump? When your heart is open – you hear the birds better, the food tastes better, you feel
more connected and right inside. It's the end of competition, lonliness, separation and
hurt and it's the time to feel oneness in your life.

An immediate comment from last client

“I was in a situation of burn out and self doubt & could not function properly in any aspect
of my life. I knew this was a wake up call to go deeper and in finding Shunyata and spending
5 days of self discovery and detox I now have the vitality & wisdom to take on my new beginning.
Thank you life, love, Paru, Shunyata & myself.

How conditioning (ego patterns) are the image we are living from and placing on other people.
How judgement and thought disturbance keeps us in suffering.

The Flowering of the Heart- Moving from Emotions to Feelings - 14th Jul 2014

I am at present in a university for the inner journey and to become awakened to be part of the
2 million people awakened in this world at present from this Oneness University.

It is amazing after 20 years of the journey in how much I have truly learnt, experienced and feel incredibly aware of and grateful for in the 2 weeks so far of this journey.  I made a declaration to be here for me and to do my journey but I can't help to feel how passionate and excited to share this with my clients.  We talk about transformation and freedom and see what is stopping us from experiencing this freedom.  I had felt freedom, there is no doubt about it as my ego patterns (they call conditioning) doesn't run my life right now, but this is a different type of freedom.  How our minds are just one mind and not to get rid of it but become friends with it.  We can't just get this from our minds we have to experience it for ourself and then it sinks into our beings our cells.  

I feel judgement is leaving me, I'm feeling more and more one with the animals, the plants, all
different nationalites.  You still have good days and bad days, but you are not attached.  You
know - this too will pass.  Little things that used to annoy me, have gone.  I care but I'm not attached.  My cranio-sacral sessions that we have been sharing, are deeper and more powerful than they have ever been and I feel a vehicle to truly help this world to heal.  I am so excited writing to you I can't contain this incredible passion and joy and love.  

I have learnt the difference between feelings and emotions and the difference between consciousness and awareness.  I have learnt the difference between love and attachment.
How to be with the mind and to make it your friend.  I have learnt how to bring abundance in your life and how your relationships with your parents either cause blocks in life or lack of abundance.

We come with so many blocks that hold us back from flowering.  Our belief systems, not
truly forgiving our hurts and our when our relationships are not good, we are not good.
We find that what we call love is attachement and it causes so much suffering in us.
Our fears disturb the peace in our hearts.  How we hold judgement of people and this robs
us of our freedom. Most people are dead, they are not living from their hearts.  Their life is run by conditioning, beliefs, fears and judgements.  How can we truly live?

They say we are beacons to help this planet heal by people waking up.  It comes a time in your life where you too have to share this light.  Today we did a  sunrise meditation and I truly felt the sun healing my cells, removing my toxins and can imagine doing  this on the deck at Shunyata.

I feel so grateful to have you in my life, so grateful for life, for my gorgeous place and for this
moment of bliss.  Love to you all from my deepest awakened heart.

If you want to experience some of this gorgeous amazing energy - bookings are available from August 7 onwards and I would love to see you again or anyone you know who could do with
a beautiful new start in life.
