The Choices We Make
Kia Ora |*FNAME*|,

“Truth is a pathless land. Man cannot come to it through any organization, through any creed, through any dogma, priest or ritual, not through any philosophic knowledge or psychological technique. He has to find it through the mirror of relationship.”  J.Krishnamurti

We have many choices available to us in the world today and the ability to discern and make objective decisions is an important skill to master. They provide a challenge for growth. A chance to  discover and develop our soul’s relationship to life. Our theme for this newsletter is ‘choices’ and our support comes from the First Light Plant Collection   No 73 Coastal Lobelia – ‘Decisiveness’.
Observing the seasons of the Soul

The solar journey, the seasons and our own soul journey are all intimately related and reflect the unique beauty that can be found in a life of harmonious relationship. A soul based relationship with life brings significant therapeutic benefits to the healing of the body and mind and is the domain of the First Light Plant Essences No’s 63-84. When the sun reaches its solstice this year on 21st June it marks a significant way-point in the journey of the soul. At this time the choice to have the soul more dominant in the life is always heightened as the sun will have traversed the path of the astrological sign of Gemini, a path which provides steps towards unifying body and soul. Traversing this territory opens up the choice to use the First Light Plant Essences in an empowering way. You can choose to consciously bring archetypal life experiences into your life to vivify and empower your life beyond the norm.


Our First Light Fern Essences workshop at Devonport will be held on the weekend of 22nd and 23rd of June. We will be exploring in depth the role of the seven native Fern Essences to address trauma and work on clearing and strengthening the layers of the human aura. There are various workshops happening across the North and South Island in June and July. Be sure to check the dates listed at the bottom of this newsletter.

We look forward to seeing you this month. May your relationship to life continue to grow beyond what you thought was ever possible.

With much aroha,

Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber and Tony Wyber

A Reading With the Fairy Oracle of the Patupaiarehe© card deck
oracle reading

A hair stylist currently employed in a busy upmarket hair salon requested a reading using the New Zealand Fairy Oracle of the Patupaiarehe© card deck.  She wanted reassurance that her dream of opening her own hair salon would soon become a reality and whether the direction she was taking was realistic or not. It seemed that there was little support or encouragement coming from the family (who said she was not capable) yet her clients often questioned why she did not have her own salon. A shop had recently been made available for lease which she was excited about yet doubts and a fear of disappointment had crept in. The hair stylist purchased the Medicine Woman No 21 Success Spell which correlates directly with the Moko card in her third basket. We will find out what happened for her after taking No 21 Success Spell in the next First Light Flower Essences newsletter!

This reading used the Three Baskets of Knowledge layout.  
  • Basket One - Taha Huahua - Preserved Bird Container - 'Friendship'  
Indicates that she has built up a very good and loyal client base through her rapport and co-operation with others.  This has been built over quite some time by her regard for people and sociable nature. Her ability to engage with people in a friendly way has created trust and good will.  She would have no difficulty in keeping her client base.
  • Basket Two - Patupaiarehe o Te Tai Hauauru - Fairy of the West
Indicates that now is the time to give freedom to the emotions and to acknowledge the joy of pursuing a new salon. It is a time of rising energies and of honouring her feelings.  There will be resistance as her fixed old mode of working gives way to the new challenge of owning a salon. However the focus is on setting things in motion and pursuing her objectives.
  • Basket Three - Moko - Tattoo - 'Success'
There is a sense of accomplishment and success coming, accompanied by a greater understanding of how well respected and capable she is. The impulse to open up an independent salon is a vision that is coming from her Spirit. Aligning with this brings the energies of a successful outcome.
The Fairy Oracle of the Patupaiarehe© is an easy to use New Zealand 34-card Oracle deck and 80 page guide containing instructions for working with the Oracle cards. The Fairy Oracle of the Patupaiarehe© card deck works directly with the extraordinary intelligence and primordial powers of nature and use ancient archetypal symbols to provide inspiration, magical insight, guidance and spiritual wisdom.
