Devaki Sokaris

Live the life your soul wants

About Devaki – longer version

Through some insight into my life journey, may I inspire you to not be afraid to grow through your suffering, discover the true essence of who you are, and the gifts you came to share with humanity.

This is a concise back story of my life, and decades old so please appreciate I have had plenty of time to transmute all the emotions associated with it, thus I have evolved. I am at peace with my past.

Originally, I started this website to offer private soul mentoring to people anywhere in Australia. In 2019 after 25 years, I retired from professional soul mentoring. I am now focusing on building a body of knowledge and wisdom to help people connect with their own inner wisdom and understand the importance of soul awareness in discovering their true selves.

My writings and insights reflect on self-discovery, soul awareness, spirituality healing, intuition, relationships, and song lyrics.


I am highly intuitive, compassionate, and down to earth. I have strong introvert tendencies and like to spend most of my time on my own.

I have a past background and training as a nurse, fitness instructor, personal trainer, gym manger, weight loss consultant, massage therapist, clairvoyant, spiritual healer, and flower-crystal essence production. I have also been a singer-song writer and musician since 2000.

In 1994 at the age of 36 years old I began to professionally mentor others. You cannot help others well enough unless you have already transformed from your own past, and are able to then deconstruct the wisdom, so you can explain it to people. Experience is not wisdom. It is only when you have understood your suffering that you have wisdom.


I was born on the 7th February 1958 and am originally from New Zealand. I first came to Australia in 1977. I went back to NZ in early 1990 for two years and then returned to Australia where I have lived since.

While working in New Zealand in 1990, I severely injured my neck and back at work which was to later end my 20-year nursing career. After two years on workers compensation it was clear I would not be able return to nursing, so I returned to Australia at the end of 1991 to pursue a new path.

I knew when I was 9 years old, I wanted to be a nurse when finishing school. I started my nursing training at the age of sixteen and a half. It was not until I started nursing that I realised the extent of my intuitive abilities.

During, my first year of nursing I developed ulcerative colitis and was admitted to hospital. I believe was due to the stress brought on by discovering the extend of my psychic abilities. I could not talk to anyone about it for fear of being ridiculed.


I grew up in a traumatic environment, so as a result, I developed low self-worth, chronic anxiety, PTSD, and irritable bowel syndrome. I was often sick, having numerous bouts of tonsillitis and viruses including glandular fever.

When I was 26 years old, I lived through three life changing challenges and tragedies only a few months apart. As a result, I had a major breakdown. After this I battled with wanting to stay here and became anorexic.

As a child I had a good sense of my real self and inner wisdom, but I did not pursue a spiritual path seriously until I experienced these life changing traumas.

In 1992, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome which I still live with today. Since then I have had plenty of time to exam all possible avenues of treatment. My condition is chronic and severe, and unfortunately many aspects of my illness are currently untreatable.


I have explored spirituality through many different non-religious philosophies. Early on my path I became a Tibetan Buddhist for many years and later joined Siddha yoga for some years.

I do not follow a religion and have been on a spiritual path since I was 26 years old. I have been a theosophist and Maitreya Buddhist since 1994.

I met my spiritual teacher Ananda Tara Shan in 1994. Ananda was a great teacher and mentor. She had a significant impact on my spiritual growth and path. Ananda gave me my spiritual name Devaki, and I am grateful that I received this name before her passing to the inner levels in 2002.

Spiritual growth challenges the inner. While that may bring a lot of benefit to the life, it can also bring inner challenges, which can cause or exacerbate health issues.

I have spiritual lessons to learn from the limitations life presents with chronic illnesses, and h have come to understand that they are not really limitations as such, as they allow me to focus on my dharma (purpose) and part of the lesson in discovery my true self.


In 1999, three weeks before my 41st birthday, I met my now husband and married in 2000. Our journey together has brought us both a lot of growth.

When you embrace your purpose as a couple, a soulmate can help you evolve in ways you cannot do when single. We have been mentors to each other and have supported each other in fulfilling our purposes in life.
