Each time you enter another relationship &ndash; something comes up in the lovemaking. Are you sick and tired of this happening. Do you want to put this to bed for good.</p> <p>Enter Shunyata, The Journey and Doterra essential oils</p> <p><strong>Why Paru</strong></p> <p>Life guides you if you are open to the guidance and maybe you don&#39;t see it till years later.My path began in Byron Bay after losing custody of my child and I was the travel agent sending thousands of Sanyassins to Osho Ashram in Pune and loved their peace inside and wanted a little for myself. So took long service leave and went off to this amazing place. I laughed and said, I thought I came for free sex and love, did I miss the boat, but unbeknowing to me I was on a journey to clear out all the guilt and shame I had picked up from a catholic upbringing around sexuality. I don&#39;t think I was abused but there was fear in my body when doing craniosacral balancing. So from that day onward my journey began &ldquo;Finding god through sex&rdquo;.</p> <p>Soon after&nbsp;<a href="http://deida.info/">David Deida</a>&nbsp;arrived and revolutionised our community with sexual polarity. It was all about openenss and as I was shutting down a lot at this time, kept following his work and truly found my feminine side at 40.</p> <p>At this time knew I had to work with&nbsp;<a href="https://www.journeyessence.com/pages/13-2/Emotional-Healing-and-the-Enneagram">The Journey</a>&nbsp;so decided to come home as there was somuch sexual abuse that was pushed under the table &ndash; the very english way and wanted to work with people in my own country. Shunyata has been open 12 years now and one of my specialties has been openenss and healing abuse and blocks from sexual trauma.</p> <p>There is so much more to just sex. The orgasm just lasts a few seconds. When the feminine is open, trusting and in surrender &ndash; the masculine consciousness enters her and her whole body is in full orgasm. This can be available to all of us if we want enough.<br /> Enter<strong>&nbsp;Tantra</strong>&nbsp;&ndash; slowing down the whole process and bringing meditation and consciousness to lovemaking.In tantra you learn how to relate to your partner, with honesty, openness and vulnerability. My partner once said to be me,&quot; Your loving melts my fears&quot;, this is true intimacyand It&#39;s only from that place that you can have really beautiful lovemaking. It is a totally different approach to sex.Tantra enables you to become more conscious, mindful and aware on a moment-to-moment basis, and helps you to say yes to the parts of life that inspire, excite and interest you.<br /> <br /> Great Article by a friend on arousal for women - thank you Elle<br /> <br /> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/notes/ellie-wilde/the-anatomy-of-arousal-for-women/10207473971879310">https://www.facebook.com/notes/ellie-wilde/the-anatomy-of-arousal-for-women/10207473971879310</a></p> <p>Don&#39;t you long to experience something more than the quickie?<br /> Do you want to bring your relationship and lovemaking to a higher level of consciousness?

Imagine that we could have it all and what does it truly mean for each of you. &nbsp;Have you really dived into this - What is love?<br /> What is true freedom?</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Love &ndash; well I have been doing my masters on this subject in this lifetime. I, being an emotional type and love bunny, always was looking for that love on the outside owing to abandonment in childhood. So knowing what love truly was has been my life mission. Now I know myself as love and have overcome tragic romantic and have recently placed more priority on freedom and have had to truly look at what freedom means for me and how can we have it all.</p> <p>Quote from a poem from Kahil Gibran</p> <p><em>Love one another, but make not a bond of love:<br /> Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.<br /> Fill each other&#39;s cup but drink not from one cup.<br /> Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf<br /> Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,<br /> Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.</em></p> <p>As my path to true unconditional and higher love has been through the<a href="/pages/13-2/Emotional-Healing-and-the-Enneagram" data-object-ref="scm_sub_page_content:2"> enneagram</a> which tells us what we are not but what has been running us and helping us understand why we are so different. I have noticed that in relationships opposites usually attract, because if we got someone like us, needy for example, it would repulse us. We go for a partner that has the traits that we want and when they can&#39;t give it to us, then the problems start and we have to find<br /> this quality in ourselves.&nbsp;So either&nbsp;we marry our parents cause the energy feels familiar or&nbsp;our soul is attracted to what we are lacking. My last partner lived unconditional love not putting conditions on me but didn&#39;t give to himself . But I wanted this unconditional love for myself, to live more unconditional so I started practicing on friends and family. I feel we served each other to grow beyond ego. &nbsp;I broke his pleaser and he broke my getting my own way and of course tragic romantic and I will be truly grateful.</p> <p>I have explored<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polyamory"> polyamory</a> and realised it is not for me as I am a one woman/man but loved some of the principles of truth and honesty and the breaking down of jealousy.&nbsp;I watched people practicing it and wasn&#39;t convinced that their consciousness was that evolved and some people were using it as an excuse for more sex.</p> <h3>Did you loveThe Last Resort - Couples Retreat Extrodainaire</h3> <p>Women long for a present trustable masculine principle and if we can&#39;t find this in a partner<br /> we search for it in a teacher so we can truly relax into our feminine qualities being <strong>receptivity,<br /> trust, surrender, patience and being.</strong></p> <p>Imagine if we truly bowed down to the higher part of someone from their gifts or their purpose not their egos and served them to grow up not grow old. Most men want freedom and most women want love. If we truly knew ourselves as love and men as being free, instead of looking for it on the outside we would stop suffering.</p> <p>Imagine if every man felt free from responsibility and wasn&#39;t always tryng to run from love in order to have freedom.. Imagine he wasn&#39;t living from his mind, which is full of<strong> fear doub</strong>t and <strong>judgemen</strong>t, but was truly present. This is trustable and sexy for a woman.<br /> <br /> Imagine if his women knew how to take him out of his head and into his heart so they could<br /> commune more from this place and practice tantra, present love.</p> <p>The words you speak become the house you live in.</p> <p>~ Sufi Saying<br /> ( Hafiz )</p> <p>The book I truly recommend for all men to read is</p> <p><a href="https://www.goodreads.com/work/quotes/76692-the-way-of-the-superior-man-a-spiritual-guide-to-mastering-the-challeng">&ldquo;The Way of the Superior Man&rdquo;</a> by David Deida. This is written for men from a man and truly helps you to understand presence and integrity which a woman craves for. &nbsp;So many relationships have been saved with this book.</p> <p>Imagine a world where we spoke to our beloveds as</p> <p><em>I feel your fear, I am here for you my beloved</em></p> <p>Recently I have had a lot of people email and call to book for shunyata and then I don&#39;t hear from them. It is fear that is come in I am sure. What we resist, persists and when you face this fear of the unknown you are free. You have been running from your own freedom by living from the mind. &nbsp;At shunyata we show you this heart space and help you to implement it into your lives.</p> <p>We are either living in fear or love and as a recent client said after her journey -<em>nothing is that bad </em>and from the mind this is how bad it can get. So live from the heart or from the mind which is full of fear doubt and judgement.We often follow what we knew in childhood watching the behaviour our parents showed us&nbsp;and if we truly want to change this then we need to break this pattern in a cellular form with The Journey method. &nbsp;There has never been such a time to break these patterns or childhood wounds - people are awakening all over the planet right now.&nbsp;We are in relationship to heal these childhood wounds.</p> <p>Typical is to see in the paper &ndash; <em>Bronco&#39;s captain saved his marriage by forgiving his mother.</em> Aimee Whitehouse never got over the abandonment of her father so that wound stayed with her and turned her into an addict and therefore she couldn&#39;t share her amazing gift.It is time to grow up and not grow old and this is what we can do in relationship. Hey men us women are leaving you behind in this awakening field as it is truly the time of the feminine. We don&#39;t want this, we want you to face your fears and become real men. &nbsp;I own my part in emasculating men, my mother taught me well, but that has finished. &nbsp;I am sick of competing with men I am longing to<br /> see shiva and shakti dancing.<br /> <br /> Us women need to trust your integrity men and we need you to stand in our emotions not run to your caves<br /> Integrity is living in courage not fear and practicing what you preach.</p> <p>Many people come to Shunyata where they are just existing not truly living,If you stay behind the fear you will live in mediocrity. If you jump you will live the most amazing free and love filled life. Get out of the rut.It&#39;s truly&nbsp;urgent that love be the vehicle that we live our lives from instead of fear.There is enough violence and terrorism on this planet, lets return to love and we can start in our relationships, because life is relationship.<br /> <br /> email <a href="mailto:info@journeyessence.com">info@journeyessence.com</a> &nbsp; or tel 03 3294773 or text 0272 777734</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>1495540800http://www.journeyessence.com/news/134/Love-and-Freedomhttp://www.journeyessence.com349Love and Freedomhttp://www.journeyessence.com/news/134/Love-and-Freedom Best Therapy Ever for Sexual Abuse New Zealandhttp://www.journeyessence.com/news/126/Best-Therapy-Ever-for-Sexual-Abuse-New-Zealand<h2><strong>SEXUAL HEALING IN NEW ZEALAND#thejourneymethod</strong></h2> <p>The papers are full again this weekend of the amount of sexual abuse that is prevalent in NewZealand and working with people for over 15 years now I thought it was time to truly speak up.<br /> As per the statistics in helpauckland.org.nz page</p> Sexual abuse is one of the key social problems undermining the health and wellbeing of our population today.&nbsp; It has a wide prevalence and can have a high impact. <ul> <li> <p><strong>1 out of 3 girls&nbsp;</strong>may be sexually abused before she turns 16 years old. Most of this abuse (90%) will be done by someone she knows and 70% will involve genital contact. For maori women the statistics might be up to twice this.</p> </li> </ul> <ul> <li> <p><strong>1 in 7 boys</strong>&nbsp;may be sexually<strong>&nbsp;</strong>abused by adulthood.<br /> <br /> New Zealand is &nbsp;placed the country third highest, alongside Australia. for sexual abuse and only approx 9% is reported. &nbsp;What does that mean for people trying to heal?<br /> &nbsp;</p> </li> </ul> <p>I was away from New Zealand for 27 years and living in Byron Bay and was fortunate to meet many Sanyassins from Osho in my travel agent and ended up going to the ashram in Pune, India myself after losing custody of my child. I was brought up a catholic and always had a lot of guilt and shame around my sexuality and often wondered if my alcoholic father ever abused me. But the Osho Asram in Pune was perfect for this healing.I didn&#39;t know what was going on at the time but I turned this completely around and learnt to love my body with dance therapy beyond eating disorders and sexual shame. Coming home to New Zealand on many occasions I noticed the amount of sexual abuse that was going on here with the proper english way (don&#39;t talk about it) and decided to come home to share The Journey Brandon Bays work in my own country.</p> <h3>The Journey For Sexual Abuse NZ</h3> <p>12&nbsp;years ago,after studying The Journey Brandon Bays, I opened Shunyata Retreat and Day Spa in beautiful Diamond Harbour and have been working with a lot of people who have been abused sexually. A lot of the time they were told not to talk about it, it was a family shame and was kept quiet. This always comes out later on in life and is still stored in the cells and despite rehab after addictions, many years of counselling, they are still not complete in their healing. They still carry this shame in their cells and feel impure and this is where the Journey comes in. There is a need for forgiveness, there is need for reconnecting with the little girl inside and falling in love with the body, there is a compassion that comes in and a completion when the soul does the work. I see time and time again, completion, not acceptance but true completion of an issue that has been in the cells for years. &nbsp;Just recently worked with two women who had done years of counselling, been in rehab and followd the 12 step and yet still had cellular memory stored. &nbsp;</p> <p>Cellular healing has always been my passion, so much I left Brazil to continue my trainingin craniosacal with somational release (verbalising as cellular memory is released out of the body).It happened if the body was ready, not always but in the journey it nearly always happens so the two combined therapies work hand in hand.</p> <p>You can go into counselling but as the mind is full of fear, doubt and judgement, the true healing never happens. Caroline Myss recently said in her video on &ldquo;Why Some People Don&#39;t Heal.Iif we keep the story open, we become the story&quot;, in survivors of rape.</p> <h3><strong>Sexual Abuse and the Journey Brandon Bays</strong></h3> <p>Do you want to open your heart and love again in a healthy way?<br /> Do you truly want to put to bed what happened to you and start over, second chance, new beginnings?<br /> Do you want final &nbsp;true freedom in your life, in your body, heart and soul?<br /> <br /> Then contact Paru 03 3294773 or txt 0272 777734 or come to Shunyata</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><a href="https://www.journeyessence.com/emotional-healing-and-the-enneagram">https://www.journeyessence.com/emotional-healing-and-the-enneagram</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>and if you are not in New Zealand you can contact me to do a journeyover skype <strong>info@journeyessence.com</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>1487588400http://www.journeyessence.com/news/126/Best-Therapy-Ever-for-Sexual-Abuse-New-Zealandhttp://www.journeyessence.com340Best Therapy Ever for Sexual Abuse New Zealandhttp://www.journeyessence.com/news/126/Best-Therapy-Ever-for-Sexual-Abuse-New-Zealand Menopause The Natural Wayhttp://www.journeyessence.com/news/125/Menopause-The-Natural-Way<h3>Menopause Retreat in New Zealand</h3> <p><strong>In order to be a great mom, you must feel great about both yourself and your life.The great news about taking care of yourself is that it allows you to share more of who you truly are with your family.</strong></p> <p>If you are one of the many women about to enter or have entered menopause and want todo it naturally then you are in the right place? &nbsp;You have probably searched the net and found a few ideas, but we must remember, like many things in life, what works for one doesn&#39;t always work for all and Shunyata Retreat works uniquely with you.</p> <ol> <li>Are you worried about what will happen in menopause?</li> <li>Have you heard all the horror stories?</li> <li>Do you really want to do this as naturally as possible?</li> </ol> <p><strong>My Story with my amazing menopause</strong></p> <p>After watching my mother have a stroke at 50, suffering from bipolar and having an incredibly hard and mean menopause,&nbsp;living in Byron Bayat the time, the centre for healing &nbsp;Iwas determined to prepare myself and do things naturally and right for my body.At around 40 I started taking natural progesterone cream which helped balance my moods and cutting out a lot of cheese and dairy and getting healthier in my eating. After doing 2 ayurvedic panchakarma treatments in India I decided to take a group over there and do an intense cleansing programme while studying ayurveda to bring to Shunyata.</p> <p>At this time I was in perimenopause which is the time before menopause &ndash; approx 2 years depending on individual as the whole process usually takes between 4 and 8 years.I started with a panchakarma liver cleanse, colon cleanse and blood cleanse 23 days in total. On returning from India my periods stopped and I was officially in menopause.I also got from the 2 doctors ideas of rasayana (natural products to take after menopause)and doing lots of research worked out what I though was right for me.</p> <h3><strong>Natural Menopause NZ</strong></h3> <p>I sailed through menopause, 1 hot flush when I had to go to the doll office one day (pride was my ego pattern) and a little insomnia with bad dreams at 3am. But was amazing.Yes I put on weight but learnt to love my menopausal bump like you would love your pregnancy and my body responded well. Since coming out of menopause I have discovered Doterra pure essential oils so have even more support naturally for the body.</p> <p><strong>Few things I discovered along the way</strong></p> <p>Everyone is unique and would thoroughly recommend doing your ayurveda test to see whatyou are going to need to look at as this is the body, mind and soul balance</p> <p><a href="http://www.holisticonline.com/ayurveda/w_ayurveda-dtest1.htm">http://www.holisticonline.com/ayurveda/w_ayurveda-dtest1.htm</a></p> <p>Find out how your mother went and when she went into it</p> <p>Learn to truly love your body and accept the changes, what you haven&#39;t dealt with will come up</p> <p>Find an exercise that you will maintain &ndash; my doctor recommended hill walking and of course yoga</p> <p>Take your eating to a higher level in health &ndash; cut back on alcohol, caffeine, dairy, carbohydrates, wheat and gluten and foods that bring inflamation</p> <p>Up your self care 5 notches and learn to say no to your loved ones (don&#39;t be a martyr)</p> <p>Communicate with the family that you need their help</p> <p>Really do some emotional healing work</p> <p>Find the right essential oil to help you sleep or melatonin but get your sleep so important</p> <p>Learn how to breathe deeply<br /> <br /> Watch stress and take doterra pure essential oils to handle stress<br /> Stress can be the culprit behind additional imbalances in hormones and neurotransmitters that affect mood as well as mental function, thyroid function, digestive function, and especially blood sugar imbalances. Stress has also been linked to symptoms such as hot flushes and low libido.</p> <p>At 50 you enter the stage of vata in ayurveda so your skin gets dryer and you have more air so lubricate your skin - also problems with digestion can start.The good news is- <strong>Y</strong><strong>ou can have a great &nbsp;menopause and come out so&nbsp;much wiser</strong> &ndash; you just have to change your normal unhealthy ways and of course to get on track.<br /> <br /> Do you really want to do this in a healthy way and be nurtured and cared for, balanced and&nbsp;<br /> rejuvinated to a true body,&nbsp;soul and emotional balance . &nbsp; Your wellness&nbsp;is important, so take time out,&nbsp;drop the pride and be in that self care/love.<br /> <br /> <a href="/pages/14-18/Retreat-Pricing" data-object-ref="scm_sub_page_content:18">https://www.journeyessence.com/pages/13-3/Detox-Weight-Loss</a><br /> <br /> <a href="https://www.journeyessence.com/retreat-pricing&lt;/a&gt;">https://www.journeyessence.com/retreat-pricing</a><br /> <br /> <strong>What Shunyata Promises You to help with Menopause</strong></p> <p>Imagine waking up to birdsong in the most delicious ocean view paradise and served your lemon ginger tea as you start your day with your cleanse.</p> <p>Imagine doing yoga on the deck overlooking the ocean with divine music</p> <p>Then coming downstairs to exquisite body work encompassing the world&#39;s best essential oils, that will make your cells tingle</p> <p>Then eating a delicious love filled healthy but decadent lunch</p> <p>Maybe then your Journey session, bringing your mind to stillness, your worries disappeared you can sit in the sauna in bliss</p> <p>Meditation time, the bell might ring and another chance at inner peace</p> <p>After another decadent delicious healthy dinner with wild orange fudge for desert, you might take in an amazing movie,like yoga woman, the shaman journey of healing or Carolyn Myss What is transformation</p> <p>But you know you will sleep like never before because your mind is so peaceful</p> <p>Shunyata has been open for 12 years now working with emotional healing, The Journey,Brandon Bays, the enneagram (unconcious patterns of behaviour), ayurveda panchakarma detox and yoga and meditation and doterra essentials oils.

As my teacher said, David Deida,that for men if they don&#39;t have a purpose they are somehow lost. But women also need to know their gift &ndash; their unique essence and live this to feel truly fulfilled. I have found many people a little lost even when they have been living a spiritual life and for this purpose I would love for all people to know their unique gift or purpose in this lifetime.</p> <p>There are many people talking about the secrets to life purpose but my experience having found working with people for over 15 years that we need to do this in steps. First find out who you are not &ndash; ego type - then do a guided meditation The Journey, and when you are in your essence or source &ndash; we then do your purpose, that is true from your soul. You cannot get this truly unless it comes from your essence of who you are beyond ego.. A guy recently came for 3 days at Shunyata and went home and changed his life, put his relationships in order and got his health on course and now is living his gentleness and I got the pleasure of seeing him again yesterday with his family and it bought tears to my eyes to see him so clear. May all being be free and happy.</p> <p>The Enneagram or ego patterns are an automatic pilot you have been living from and which has caused you a lot of suffering. This is different for everyone and there are 9 different ego types. Donald Trump is just one type of ego &ndash; the boss, the leader, the confronter and the bully. They are never wrong and don&#39;t try and fight them, they will always win. The glass is half empty.But there is the one that is so proud it won&#39;t ask for help and another\ one who does all to avoid anger and confrontation. When you bring awareness to these patterns that are running you &ndash; you can truly then concentrate on your gifts or your essence.</p> <p>For me &ndash; my ego type was tragic romantic and unique and special. I watched my mother in thisdrama and tragedy and made a decision one day to move beyond it for both of us. Now I serve a higher love with my clients and love all things ordinary. I am living my gift and feel so fulfilled from this.If we are on purpose living our purpose and gifts and passions in life , then we can truly be causeless joy.</p> <p><strong>What is causeless Joy</strong></p> <p>This is the joy that is not dependant on anything or anyone on the outside. It comes bubbling out of you when you wake up in the morning. How do we come to this place &ndash; well we clear out our lower selves by bringing awareness to our ego patterns (enneagram) and bubble up from the inside from our true gifts in our heart and soul. They go hand in hand.</p> <h3><strong>Why come to Shunyata and not other retreats</strong></h3> <p>&nbsp;</p> <ol> <li> <p>You can come anytime as it is very one on one just about you not with lots of other people.</p> </li> <li> <p>The peaceful ocean view setting that has been energy cleared is conjusive to deep healing.</p> </li> <li> <p>Daily you are taken gently into your true self.</p> </li> <li> <p>You are met where you are at and taken deeper.</p> </li> <li> <p>You come out living the best part of yourself and don&#39;t we all want to do this at sometime.</p> </li> <li> <p>You are introduced to world renown therapies like The Journey, The Enneagram, Doterra Pure Essential Oils along with yoga, meditation and delicious healthy food.</p> </li> <li> <p>One of the best value and cheapest retreats in Australasia &ndash; I challenge you to find better value.</p> </li> <li> <p>Time for you to do gorgeous coastal walks and swims in the summer</p> </li> <li> <p>Some of the deepest therapy for depression, anxiety, body pain and shutdown.</p> </li> <li> <p>The most profound and yet easy detox with Ayurveda Panchakarma</p> </li> <li> <p>You just get more for your money.</p> </li> </ol> <p>&nbsp;If you truly want to know your calling and live causeless joy - Call Paru now 03 3294773 to book your space or go to<strong> journeyessence.com</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>1486638000http://www.journeyessence.com/news/122/Life-Purpose-and-What-is-Causeless-Joyhttp://www.journeyessence.com336Life Purpose and What is Causeless Joyhttp://www.journeyessence.com/news/122/Life-Purpose-and-What-is-Causeless-Joy A True Secret to Digestive Problemshttp://www.journeyessence.com/news/121/A-True-Secret-to-Digestive-Problems<p><strong>THE PSOAS MUSCLE, EMOTIONAL HOLDING, DIGESTIVE ISSUES AND CRANIOSACRAL</strong></p> <p>Yesterday I got a message on facebook from a friend how he overcame deep gut pain and how for years this just got worse and worse. After trying many wholelistic practitioners he was told &ldquo;that the Ileocecal valve, the joining between small and large intestine stopped functioning . He had blocked sinuses and his immune system was going downhill.He had been told by a healer it was due to an overload of pushing the body, constantly to the edge, especially through years of practising Yoga in such a way that created immense stress and tension in his belly and solar plexus. It also appeared that he held on a deep Sadness, personal and from the collective. She also spoke about absorbing energetic residues from participants in the group room, while he was holding the space (never thinking of protecting himself)&hellip;</p> <p>The light went on in my head about the link of this illeocecal valve, the psoas muscle and craniosacral and digestion. So I spent a few days researching.</p> <p>You can have a problem of an open valve which causes a regurgitation of colon contents and diarrehea.Sometimes a closed valve might be related intestinal yeast overgrowth (or&nbsp;<a href="https://robdaquila.com/2009/11/10/candida-and-yeast-infections-a-virtual-epidemic/" target="_blank">candida</a>), parasites, protozoa, bacterial and viral infections in the intestines. This can be the cause or result of insufficient &ldquo;good&rdquo; bacteria in the gut. Comes down to excessive sugar, refined carbohydrate, and/or fruit consumption; food contamination, and drinking chlorinated water, with gut flora problems.. Symptoms would be anything that accompanies constipation, such as bloating, abdominal cramps, flatulence, fatigue, general poor digestion, headaches, halitosis, low back pain, etc..</p> <p>Then there is the psoas muscle known to hold emotions particulary fear.The psoas is the main muscle that responds to the sympathetic nervous system during the flight or fight response in the body.&nbsp; When startled or under mental or emotional stress, the psoas contracts.Criticism from a friend, a close call in traffic, an ongoing disagreement with your partner, general anxiety&mdash;all of these elicit a contraction in the psoas muscle. This is felt as a tightening in the gut, a hunching of the shoulders and a collapsing in the chest and heart. These feelings if not expressed and thereby released, are held as a charge of energy by the nervous system inside the psoas muscle tissue.<br /> <br /> A tight psoas can be the cause of back, hip or groin pain, digestive problems and breathing habits and feelings of exhaustion. &nbsp;If this muscle is continually contracted it begins to shorten which can lead to sciatica, scoliosis, hip and knee pain and digestive issues.</p> <p>The psoas muscle relates to four chakras: the root chakra, the creative center, the solar plexus or power center and it reaches up towards the heart center. A good mantra for this muscle is: I AM CREATIVE,&nbsp; POWERFUL AND LOVING. When the body tightens up and is unwilling to walk forward, look to releasing the psoas muscle to regain your ability to step forward once more.</p> <p>Liz Koch calls it the muscle of the soul which is why when I work on someones sacrum I feel this soul energy and it&#39;s all linked.The psoas is so intimately involved in such basic physical and emotional reactions, that a chronically tightened psoas continually signals your body that you&rsquo;re in danger, eventually exhausting the adrenal glands and depleting the immune system.&rdquo;</p> <p>This could explain why many people are suffering from candida and other gut problems. So would recommend a release of psoas muscle with craniosacral and doterra essential oils for feeling trapped feelings, do some colonics and see if this issue can be resolved.</p> <p>The sensitive empaths of this world take on other people&#39;s energy so easily so can often be found to suffering from either of these problems.The good news is that empaths are needed in this world to feel for all the people who can&#39;t feel and here is a great article on them &ndash; deep love to all us sensitive beings</p> <p>http://unisoultheory.com/index.php/2016/09/10/presence-empath/</p> <p>Paru Clarke runs Shunyata Retreat &amp; Day Spa and is passionate about emotional and physical healing journeyessence.com or contact her on <a href="mailto:info@journeyessence.com">info@journeyessence.com</a></p>1482058800http://www.journeyessence.com/news/121/A-True-Secret-to-Digestive-Problemshttp://www.journeyessence.com335A True Secret to Digestive Problemshttp://www.journeyessence.com/news/121/A-True-Secret-to-Digestive-Problems Day Spa - Christchurchhttp://www.journeyessence.com/news/119/-Day-Spa-Christchurch<h3><strong>Unique Day Spa Near Christchurch</strong></h3> <br /> If you think of a spa - what comes to mind?<br /> <br /> Shunyata has taken the word spa and made it into wellness and wholeness. &nbsp;Okay we can&#39;t<br /> say it&#39;s 5 star, but the views, the food and the treatments truly are and the energy and the sublime smell of doterra pure essential oils will take you to heaven.<br /> <br /> Paru is always travelling picking up the best ideas for her retreat and day spa..Recently at a conference in Montreat - she heard about the benefits of Rosemary for memory, alzeimers and dementia from a chinese medicine practitioner and how this was used in old peoples homes &nbsp;in USA to help our elderly.<br /> <br /> What is the best treatment for hayfever - well we have the pure oils of peppermint, lemon<br /> and lavender but what about shirodhara - the amazing ayurvedic technique she has had incredible results for years. <h3><strong>CHRISTCHURCH DAY SPA</strong></h3> <br /> Maybe you have body pain and have tried everything to shift it - in comes craniosacral used with the deep blue oil on the reflexology points and longstanding pain lifts amazingly. &nbsp;Her success with so many problems combining doterra and the body work is blowing her away. <p>Maybe you are totally stressed and need to relax deeper than you have ever relaxed -Aromatouch doterra essential oil massage with craniosacral will take you to a place you have never been before in relaxation.</p> <br /> There is an oil for that - whatever you have - we can address it naturally along with the beautiful natural products used at Shunyata. <h3><strong>Spa Christchurch</strong></h3> <br /> Have you tried the ozone sauna, looking out over the bay, ozone and oxygen is poured into your cells as you steam - they used it for HIV and AIDS in USA and is amazing for immune boosting.<br /> <br /> Ayurveda treatments, reflexology, many massage techniques including Aromatouch, &nbsp;cranio-sacral balancing, body scrubs, cellulite and weight loss wraps, gorgeous facials, and of course if you come on retreat - there is yoga overlooking the deck and meditation.<br /> <br /> Then there&#39;s the food - sugar free and delicious chocolate treats that are all pure and good for you, gorgeous healthy and delicious salads and low carb and gluten free, paleo, you name it,<br /> we can provide.<br /> <br /> So looking forward to meeting you off the ferry from Lytellton for a day you will truly remember<br /> <br /> call now to book your place this xmas break 03 3294773 or email <a href="mailto:info@journeyessence.com">info@journeyessence.com</a><br /> <br /> Paru Clarke runs Shunyata Retreat and Day Spa &nbsp;www. journeyessence.com<br /> <br /> &nbsp;1480503600http://www.journeyessence.com/news/119/-Day-Spa-Christchurchhttp://www.journeyessence.com331 Day Spa - Christchurchhttp://www.journeyessence.com/news/119/-Day-Spa-Christchurch
