Vision Taking Flight
Kia Ora <<First Name>>,

There is often a delicate balance between juggling the ideals of your own visions and the realistic considerations of what is possible to achieve. Your dreams can be limitless but managing the practical side of things is the challenge when giving form to the vision and enabling it to take flight.

Amongst the busy-ness of daily life and commitments, holding on to that vision requires you to listen closely and be guided by inner promptings – unafraid of being your true self. The First Light seed essences No’s 51 – 62 are helpful for breaking through limiting patterns that can prevent you from fully expressing your true self. No 56 Inkberry helps to break through limitations or fears that can hold you back from ‘being different’ and being able to realise your own visions.
At the end of 2014 we said goodbye to our home in Titirangi and moved to Devonport - a beautiful harbourside suburb of Auckland and the place of my mountain Takarunga - Mt Victoria. Here we are currently busy writing material for The Sacred Plant Medicine of Aotearoa Volume Two. This move brings the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® vision to its next stage and promises many more exciting things to come.

First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® Study Unit Folders
We are pleased to announce a new innovation with our course material. The printed manuals for all study units have taken on a brand new format with newly designed First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® folders allowing your study and course material to be organised into a tidy and presentable format for reference and ease of use.

New First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® Essence Collections
At the Medicine Woman Residential Workshop, Retreat and Annual Gathering in November 2014 we released five new families of essences in the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® range: Sacred Sedge Essences No's 145 - 152, Sacred Rush Essences No's 153 - 160, Sacred Moss Essences No's 161 - 168, Sacred Forest Essences and Sacred Temple Essences. These extraordinary essences of a very high frequency bring to the world for the first time a revolutionary new way of working at the highest levels of healing energy to restore balance and harmony to both ourselves and the planet. They are now available through the online store.

Workshops at Voices of Sacred Earth Eco-Festival
For those of you who will be in Auckland at the end of this month I will be presenting workshops in the Lotus Room at Voices of Sacred Earth, Kawai Purapura on Saturday 28th February and Sunday 1st March. On Saturday I will be giving a workshop on earth medicine and magic, shamanism and New Zealand native plants. On Sunday, a hands-on practical workshop with the opportunity for you to explore and develop your own psychic abilities. Come and see us at our stand where we will have both First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® and Medicine Woman products available for purchase. I look forward to seeing you there.

With much aroha,

Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber and Tony Wyber

Congratulations to two of our First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® students Marianne Harlaar & Bert Van der Werf who were married on the 21st December 2014 at Rodney Ridge Matakana Auckand.

"First of all the essences helped us both to complete issues related to previous relationships. Then a combination of essences helped us to start a new cycle together, to 'go with the flow' and to support us through the many changes. The days before the wedding as well as on our wedding day we used Crisis Support© combination essence to calm our nerves and to keep things in perspective. It really worked!" - Marianne.

No 56 Inkberry
No 56 Inkberry reminds one that it is okay to be different, to stand apart from the masses and live according to one’s own personal dream. Inkberry allows one to know what is right and to perceive the higher self’s vision for the soul. Young children naturally have a healthy balance between their inner and outer realities. They have vivid imaginations and intuitively see the truth.

Where would we be without the bees?
There are more than 20,000 known species of bee, members of a super family called Apoidea. Although some bee species operate as solitary individuals, the social honey bee, introduced to New Zealand in 1839, lives in highly organised colonies with as many as 50,000 or more individuals. The worker bees are female and their jobs are varied...

The importance of Water
Water is a vital element that enables life to exist on earth. It keeps humans and all other living things alive. Without it, we simply wouldn’t be here! The earth’s surface is made up of around 71% water with oceans holding the majority of the water. Interestingly, water constitutes around 60-70% of the adult human body as well which makes us very similar to ...

Back to School Basics
As the year starts to take shape, children head back to school and for most this requires a significant change of pattern, from the long, hot, fun -filled summer days and late nights into a more regimented one. Many children have to get to bed earlier to get up earlier and the relaxed nature of holidays soon shifts into timetables and bell times...
