First Light
Dance to the Rhythm of Life

Kia Ora <<First Name>>,

Nature's magical cycles and rhythms are evident everywhere in her perfection - from the ever changing seasons to the extraordinary lifecycle of a butterfly. The ancient people understood how to harness the power of these cycles by tuning into the energy of the natural world around them.  They used these cycles and rhythms to manifest abundance and good fortune for themselves and their communities.  

This month we explore ways in which you can tune into these empowering rhythms and make them work for you in your daily life.

Over the next few weeks we encourage you to enjoy the magic of the moment, ride waves of opportunity and go with the flow. See what happens when synchronicity begins to work in your life and you are in the right place at the right time!

With much aroha,

"I always enjoy the plant attunement exercises to feel a deeper soul connection with Mother Earth. I have felt a strong connection when working with the native First Light® seed essences whanau and the links through the lineage of my ancestors. As the seed essences work in quantum time and space, we have the ability in this lifetime, to restore the energetic blueprint for right living and right relationship with every aspect of self past, present and future."

Did You Know: The Wheel of the Year - a Celebration of Nature and Life

The eightfold wheel of the year has its roots woven throughout myth, celebration and ritual in many cultures throughout the world. Capturing the interplay between the darkness and light and the dynamics of the changing seasons, each point in the cycle is traditionally honoured by festival and celebration.  The eight festivals of the year are made up of four Solar Festivals and four Lunar Festivals, they are known today as Samhain, Yule, Imbolc, Ostara, Beltane, Litha Lammas, and Mabon.

The four Solar Festivals mark the passage of the sun throughout the year at the solstices, when the days are at their shortest and longest, and at the spring and autumn equinoxes, when day and night are of equal length, and light and dark are in a state of balanced equipoise.

The four Lunar Festivals  are also known as 'Fire Festivals'. They mark the cross quarter points of the year, midway between the equinoxes and the solstices. These were considered important times to tune into the changing face of the mother goddess and her cyclic rhythm.  They heralded the beginning of each of the ancient seasons and were celebrated with bonfires, candles and feasts.
