First Light
Freedom Through Non-Attachment

Kia Ora <<First Name>>,

In traditional Maori lore, whatumanawa - the dimension of feelings and emotions is inextricably linked with the human expression of true joy that comes from knowing that we are both human and divine.  The ancient people understood that a sense of freedom came from embracing the realm of the senses and that expressing our emotions in a healthy, balanced and appropriate way was vitally important for holistic wellbeing.

Our emotional nature or 'emotional body' can be problematic in the life or it can be harnessed  effectively for a higher purpose.  In this newsletter we explore ways to encourage positive emotional patterns that can enable you to experience a sense of peace in your life -  naturally extending to your partnerships, family and friends. 

We wish you a month filled with opportunities to express and experience your joy.

With much aroha,

Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber and Anthony Wyber

Frida Kahlo: Your First Light® Power Flower is...

No 11 Chatham Island Geranium - The Nurturing Essence
Artist Frida Kahlo was born on July 6, 1907, in Coyocoán, Mexico City, Mexico and is considered one of Mexico's greatest artists. She is viewed by many as an icon of female creativity and was respected for her intellectual and emotional independence. A near fatal bus accident when she was 18 years old left her seriously injured. Frida used art as a means to transcend the continuous physical and emotional pain that she experienced until her death in 1954. Frida expressed her maternal feelings in an unconventional marriage to artist Diego Rivera. Her painting 'The Love Embrace of the Universe, the Earth, Myself, Diego and Senor Xolotl' shows her nurturing the baby she could never have.

'Just the boost I needed to start and complete my Diploma'.  
"Once I completed my certificate it was straight into the Diploma thesis and case studies.
I enjoyed learning more about the Healers and Shamanic teacher plants in this way after having done the three years of practical first hand study with them. It was like a completion and revisiting of all those wonderful strong and supportive teacher plants that I had journeyed with. Thank you to the 12 week completion classroom process which was the boost I needed to start and complete my diploma."       - Helen Francis, New Zealand

Did You Know: The Zodiacal Sign of Cancer - Form and the Evolution of the Soul.

Cancer (latin for crab), the forth sign of the zodiac is of the water element and is most often associated with the comforts of home, family, the emotions and past memories.  It is one of the most ancient of the twelve zodiacal signs and is closely connected with form and the soul seeking liberation from the personality and mass consciousness. The slow moving crab which carries its house upon its back represents the early stages of regeneration and transformation with its periodic moulting of its shell and ability to regenerate lost limbs. Esoterically, Scorpio which is the second of the zodiacal water signs is the symbol of the transformed crab and the result of next stage of the evolutionary process. This is why you will sometimes see the image for Cancer represented by a crayfish, which looks similar in appearance to the scorpion.
