Sacredness and Balance in the Life
Kia ora <<First Name>>,

The concept of sacredness means different things to different people. For the ancient people and indigenous cultures the presence of the sacred in their lives created much needed balance and harmony. For New Zealand Maori, sacredness arises out of something that has had restrictions or tapu placed upon it. By placing these restrictions, a place, person or object becomes sacred and is imbued with mana - power. Some Maori tohunga held a great level of mana by creating for themselves a life built upon this restriction and discipline. This discipline was a key to enable them access to the power necessary to heal others.

No 21 Hinau is the First Light flower essence that has the keynote of ‘sacred space’ and resonates with the energies of Libra. 
Creating a sacred relationship with your rich inner world brings balance to your life and creates sacred space. When this balance can be sustained, despite the whirlwinds of change, you can link in to the vital role that healers and medicine people play in all cultures.

The First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand online Cyber School continues to expand its sacred space with more exclusive videos for you to watch, rich new resources and questions and answers for students enrolled in First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand courses. Joining and being part of this online cyber school provides added depth to your learning and creates opportunity to connect with other students from all around the world.

First Light Stand at the Homeopaths Conference
Two of our First Light tutors Astrea Morgane (Wellington) and Gill Williamson (Auckland) have been communicating with each other across the country to organise ways they can present First Light Flower Essences to the public.  They recently took a stand at the New Zealand Council of Homeopaths Conference at the Hamilton gardens  with a talk on the Sunday. As the theme for the conference was Sustainability for Homeopaths in Practice, Astrea and Gill said they chose to focus on the First Light Consititutional Essence Blend® as it helps to maintain and sustain equilibrium in the life.

"It was a weekend of co-operation and comradeship, working together to spread further the magic of our First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand."

The interest in the First Light Flower Essences was high with many interested in the conference special of two bottles for $35.00. One homeopath from Hong Kong left with various combinations for her clients along with her own personalised blend. She has a very busy practise and expressed a keen interest in having her clients learn about the essences.  Thank you Astrea and Gill for your involvement and work you are doing with the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand.
