Children Are Our Greatest Legacy

Children are our greatest legacy Tohuna Dr Rangimarie Turuki Rose Pere reminds us.

As elders we are in a role to support our children so that they can live and move consciously and confidently into their futures.

Like us, each child is a totally unique being, upholding and expressing sacred gifts which will assist them, others and the earth mother on their journey. Each child carries with them their own unique ‘medicine’ or 'gift' to support them on this journey. Like the children of old indigenous ways, a child of today is able to carry their personal ‘medicine’ or 'gift' to assist them to meet life powerfully. A child of the 21st century will find this in the flowers, ferns, trees, seeds and plants of Aotearoa through the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® range.

As elders we can provide this support through a constitutional blend of essences. This blend will assist a child to walk in balance, to navigate this territory of the 21st century whilst expressing their unique gifts powerfully into the world, to achieve their birth right, their destiny enabling their inner light to shine through.

A constitutional blend will include the child’s ‘power’ flower to support the child to express and meet their world positively and effectively. The chosen flower corresponds to their day of birth on the zodiacal calendar. A fern, tree and seed correlating to the day of the week which they were born will assist to clear, balance, strengthen, protect and restore the correlating aura, chakra and DNA. The child’s soul lessons will be supported through the corresponding plant relating to their chosen birth date. Together they will gently bring harmonious alignment to allow the child’s soul to express its full potential in the world. This personal blend is a sacred gift which can be given from birth on.

Each of my children use a constitutional blend daily and I observe in them the positive shift of their personal expression to meet daily challenges. Life in the family unit and parenting becomes more harmonious, fluid and at ease. The children are also introduced to the plants in the physical world through time in nature in order to have a relationship in the physical with their ‘medicine’.
