Using the Knowledge and Wisdom of Your Own Experience

Kia Ora <<First Name>>,

This year, 2016, a number 9 year, has been a year of completion, accomplishment and perfection.  As we move into the busy Christmas season we reach the end of a cycle and the new year, a brand new cycle full of possibilities is not far away! Now is the perfect time to tie up loose ends and to take stock of where you're at and what you've accomplished so far.

Allow yourself to take some moments during the hustle and bustle to acknowledge the experience and wisdom you have gained and consider how you might use it to your advantage in the year ahead. Take some time out to envision the next stage of your journey and to plant seeds for a wonderful 2017, knowing that each day brings a new opportunity to create a more fulfilling life and to express your full potential.     

It has been a wonderful sharing this year with you. Thank you for joining us and being a part of the First Light® story – we wish you and your loved ones a joy-filled holiday season and truely magical new year!

Lorde: Your First Light® Power Flower is...

No 23 Lacebark – Fearlessness

Born Ella Marija Lani Yelich-O’Connor on 7 November 1996 in Takapuna, Auckland, Lorde has proven herself to be a worldwide phenomenon.
True to her Scorpio nature, Lorde conveys intensity and a powerful presence. She has stated that her public image comes naturally to her. She identifies as a feminist and in 2014, Forbes Magazine included Lorde in their “30 under 30” list of young people who are ‘changing our world’.
Lorde exemplifies the positive attributes of her Power Flower Lacebark. She is not afraid to stand out and to be honest about her imperfections. Her songwriting and stage presence are unique, falling well outside the norms set by mainstream musical culture, a culture that she questions fearlessly and without reservation in her lyrics.
“I do the work and feel the force field around myself get stronger.” Lorde.

Tree of Knowledge
Did You Know: The Tree of Knowledge is a
Symbol for the Journey to Self-Knowledge

Trees are a universal symbol found throughout the ancient traditions of the world. Cosmic trees that reach between heaven and earth appear as central elements in world myths and hold many layers of meaning.

The 'Tree of Knowledge' is a cosmic tree often depicted inverted or upside down with its roots reaching up to the heavens and its branches and leaves spreading out in the world. In the ancient Vedic texts this reversed tree is known as the sacred Asvattha (meaning 'under where the horses stand'). The reversal symbolism parallels the 'hanged man' symbology in the Tarot and the sacrifice of the Norse god Odin who, in his quest for knowledge and wisdom hangs upside down on the World Tree, Yggdrasil (meaning 'Odin's horse').

In the Celtic tradition, the Tree of Knowledge was associated with the hazel tree. Nine hazel trees circle the well of wisdom in the heart of the otherworld. Legend says their hazelnuts drop from above into the sacred waters and the Salmon of Knowledge swim in the well and break open the nuts, sending their husks floating down the streams that flow from it. The journey of self-knowledge is like the journey of a salmon swimming upstream towards its source and it is said that anyone who eats the nuts or the salmon will obtain all the knowledge of the gods.

The First Light® plant essence No 64 Koromiko is the wisdom essence and you can work with this essence to support you on your journey of discovery that is symbolically represented by the tree of knowledge.
Natural Phenomena
Magical First Light® Experience at the Natural Phenomena Conference

Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber was a keynote presenter at the Natural Phenomena Conference held in the magical Wild Woods in Whangarei on 18 - 20 November 2016.

The theme of her presentation was 'Communing with Nature' when she spoke to a group of more than 250 very special early childhood educators and invited them to step into the new threshold - a new place and an old / new way of walking on the wild side and working with the spirit of nature. The inner child was awakened and the quest to know more about working with nature spirits and the devic realm was ignited for all in attendance.
