The Life Giving Vigour and Energy in Nature

Kia Ora <<First Name>>,
     Earth changes are accelerating and we are experiencing some dramatic weather patterns and powerful storms across the globe.  These shifts are positive and they link in with the impulses for change that are coming from the spiritual realms with ever-increasing intensity.  It is no mistake that each of the flowers, ferns, trees, seeds and plant essences have ‘stepped forward’ to fully work with a person to achieve an holistic outcome at this time.  A time that is remarkable in the world’s history and one which calls for the very unique energy that the native plants of Aotearoa hold.
First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand had a strong presence at this year’s New Spirit Festival held in Auckland in February.  Special thanks to our
First Light Registered Practitioners Lesley, Tessa, Gill, Liz, Andrina and Steve who were busy helping out and providing consultations to the public.  Most people coming to the stand already had an understanding of the essences or had heard in some way about First Light.  Word is getting around!  A big thank you also to all our registered practitioners, you are doing a fantastic job out there working with the First Light essences and raising public awareness.  

We have just launched a range of jewellery on the First Light Flower Essences website.  Each piece is inspired by the plants and flowers in the First Light Flower Essences range. The artist has worked closely with the First Light essences to create a number of beautiful hand crafted designs that are a pure and distinctive expression of the elegance found in the plants that grow in the ancient forests of Aotearoa. Each handcrafted piece is carefully wrapped and packaged in their own gift box before being sent. 

The Medicine Woman Certificate in Healers Studies is well under way.  This is a one year certificated course that will provide you with access to the necessary 12 ancient rites of passage of the healer.  In the Healers Apprenticeship you also work closely with the 12 healer teacher plants that hold the keys to opening the portals of power for the healer in the 21st Century.  Enrolments are now open and the next start date for the Medicine Woman Certificate in Healers Studies and the Rite of the Six Moons is April 21st.

All the best in your studies and your work with the essences and the nature spirits of this land.

With much Aroha to you all,

Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber and Tony Wyber

Medicine Woman Rite of the Six Moons and Falcon Guardian Kaitiaki     by Gillian Crundwell
falconThe Medicine Woman Rite of the Six Moons© journey was without a doubt the most powerful and appropriate healing and learning for my heart and soul to date. It left me with a wonderful sense of more personal understanding and power, of being in totally the right place. Even prior to physically connecting with the New Zealand First Light essences and the Medicine Woman Workshop and Annual Gathering at Taupo, New Zealand  in Oct 2010 with Franchelle Ofsoske-Wyber, I had this sense of being directed by Spirit to take this path.

The day before arriving at Tauhara for the Medicine Woman Healer’s essences weekend, I had the opportunity to attend a demonstration of rehabilitated and captive bred New Zealand Falcons at Wingspan, a conservation trust near Rotorua. It was an opportunity to connect with what I have always known to be a power animal for me. One of my life long dreams, to have a raptor perch on my arm, was realised. It was such a beautiful moment in my life, connecting eye to eye with such a  regal bird, I sensed this was a clear sign that I was embarking on a path that was right for me. I also joined Wingspan as a supporter.   Back then, I had no idea what would ensue during the Medicine Woman Rite of the Six Moons... Read More

Many of us are faced with the tasks of juggling work and family commitments, managing our finances, and keeping things ticking over on a day to day basis. Sometimes, we can find ourselves with little energy left to do those things that we really love, things that nourish and support us.  
Creating a balanced, harmonious and fulfilling life that supports the realisation of our dreams...  Read More
Children and Sugar

At Easter a child’s relationship with sugar may prove more challenging to manage.  Negotiating the supermarket aisles of chocolate bunnies and eggs with children on board can definitely have its moments.  Beyond the seasonal spikes, the high levels of sugar in our diets can be a very real obstacle if we are to maintain and sustain total wellbeing. The processed... Read More
