The Will To Make Things Happen
Kia Ora <<First Name>>,

There is a lot of energy and movement happening here at First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® as we head towards the end of the year and into 2015. We have some exciting new additions to our courses and to our products, which you can see in this newsletter.

At this time of the year, things can get busy and stressful and it is all too easy to lose our centre and be swept along by the hustle and bustle of the upcoming festive season. The approaching Christmas season with its glitter and sparkle can also lead us to being drawn into making extravagant purchases, giving in to impulsive patterns of over spending and giving one's personal will power over to the pressure of the whole 'silly season'.
Staying on track with your budget or staying connected to what it is you want to do over the festive season is likely to be increasingly difficult at this time and your personal will power and resolve can be severely challenged.

Personal Resolve
It is at times such as this that it is helpful to develop a stronger relationship with our willpower. We can dig deeper and discover untapped physical, emotional and mental resources within ourselves to make things happen in accordance with our own focus. This heightened resolve and willpower is linked to the zodiacal sign Scorpio. This energy is within each and every individual and when directed has the potential to move mountains.

Not surprisingly therefore we have selected No 24 Poroporo as our plant profile this month. The keyword for Poroporo essence is willpower. If you want to strengthen your will power then this essence is just the thing to make it happen!

Medicine Woman Eighth Gathering 2014
14-16 November, Tauhara Retreat Centre, Taupo New Zealand
We are looking forward to the eighth Medicine Woman gathering at Tauhara. Our theme this year is 'Healing Ourselves and the Planet'. This looks to be our largest gathering to date. There are a few places left so don't delay if you are interested in attending. You will have the opportunity to delve deeply into the mysteries of Isis the Egyptian goddess of magic and healing and Osiris the god of resurrection. This will be a journey into the magical realms of vibrational medicine that will take your understanding and therapeutic use of nature power to a whole new level.

First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand In Class and Online Courses 2015
Our established First Light Cyber School with online courses and our wonderful team of tutors throughout the country have made it possible for us to offer you a variety of learning options. As we prepare to move into 2015 we remain totally committed to the next phase of bringing to you the most advanced levels of healing and state-of the-art therapy available today. For those wanting to learn more about the Healers and Shamanic essences or to obtain their Diploma in New Zealand Native Flower Essence Therapy we are thrilled to announce that the First Light Healers and Shamanic study units are now available in the First Light Cyberschool.

Finally a huge thank you to each and every one of you.

As we move into the festive season and beyond may this time bring you unlimited opportunities to step deeper into the essence of who you truly are. You have the ability to create extraordinary results and truly unique outcomes in your life.

With much aroha,

Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber and Tony Wyber

The Sacred Cow
Cows are beautiful animals, with large kindly eyes and personalities of their own. They have a distinct sweet smell and can be very soothing to watch as they stand or lie chewing their cud. There are many different breeds and within a herd, cattle can form strong bonds with each other. It can be very helpful to have an older cow or steer (neutered male) in a herd as he or she can show ...    Read More

Stepping onto the Holistic Practitioner Path - Part Two
In part one of this article, I touched on the different ways a person may be called to walk the path of The Healer, becoming a ‘practitioner with an edge’ and the benefits of training with First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® to address the complex nature of dis-ease and disharmony that many people are experiencing with their health in the 21st century.
