Purposeful Living
Kia Ora <<First Name>>,
“Nature does nothing without reason or without purpose.”  - Aristotle

When you start to make headway with your own healing it is natural for your life to begin taking on a new form and direction. Life starts to become more fresh and invigorating. Doors are opened and often the opportunities to do things you never thought possible come your way. Life becomes less forceful and more purposeful.
The awareness of your life purpose can begin like a tiny seed hidden in your consciousness amongst all the other plans and goals you might have. Restoration and nurturing of this potential comes from First Light flower essence No 58 Ramarama.
Ramarama is a shiny-leafed New Zealand native shrub whose Maori name means 'to shine brightly’. It is the seed essence that can restore a vibrant expression of life purpose and individual destiny. 
No 58 Ramarama is our plant profile this month and our theme is ‘Life Purpose’. This seed essence helps develop an awareness of your true place in the world so that you can follow your own star and shine your own light.
First Light Natural Health®
In our last newsletter we announced our new retail range of 20ml oral sprays. This range comes under the new name First Light Natural Health® - 100% Natural Emotional Remedies. These products have been making their way into retail stores and are becoming very popular among practitioners. The new website has been launched this month and we are very proud to take these products out into the world. Watch this space – a new opportunity will be announced to you very soon in a separate email.

A New Personal Website 
I have also launched my own personal website and am pleased to be once again seeing a limited number clients on a regular basis. I am offering a range of different appointments and astrological packages to suit people’s needs and will use various products from both First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® and Medicine Woman. This website brings together the culmination of a lifetime of work and service and I welcome you to spend some time exploring what is on offer.
With much aroha,
Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber and Tony Wyber

New Website

My website is now live and offers the opportunity to book an appointment, order the popular selling astrology reports and select your own personalised plant potions online.  There are currently four appointment packages to choose from and you will notice that Magical Plant Potions and Astrological Charts that were on the Medicine Woman website have been relocated to my personal website. Be sure to check my weekly oracle which offers advice and guidance for the week ahead.

The essence of No 58 Ramarama comes from its seed. All seeds contain the same divine spirit that resides in the centre of our own being, our heart of hearts. The 12 First Light seed essences heal and re-pattern ancestral and past life experiences which have impacted and damaged DNA. Ramarama is the Life Purpose essence. There comes a time in one’s life when there is a realisation that one is here for a higher purpose... Read More

"Misbehaving" Dogs
Dogs can make wonderful animal companions and just like people they have different personalities. The expression of their personalities, the traits of their breeding (cross-bred or otherwise), the state of their physical wellbeing, their age and the way people interact with them all influence their behaviour. A dog's background experiences also affect how they behave. Read More

The Taurus children in my life I often experience as having an ‘easy going’ and down to earth nature or expression.  Steady, determined, resourceful and persistent in nature, they are well equipped to meet and overcome life’s challenges, particularly those of the physical and emotional type.
