Our Evolving Children

Children of today are born into a world which is placing many expectations on them.

Children with heightened awareness for the world around them and sensitive dispositions can find navigating through this fast moving and techno savvy world a challenge. Their responses can be expressed through out-of-sorts emotional and mental behaviour.

Exploring children

As parents we may see them struggle to hold their place and meet the world with confidence, communicate their needs, relate to others and their peers, understand the world around them and to be understood.

In order to walk in balance and remain well, all aspects of their being need support.

In a world where personality is highly conditioned, the child can lose connection with soul. The soul’s need is to evolve and grow through its own set of lessons which are not the same as the personality’s diet of facts and figures.

The First Light plant family of essences informs us about these soul lessons.

Children may struggle to integrate their own uniqueness (soul and spirit) within the expectations of a current way of living (personality). Children can feel ‘out of place’ in the world today. First Light flower essences provide support for our children to stand powerfully in their unique place in the world.

A blend of First Light flower essences can assist your child to actively be in the world while maintaining and sustaining their soul’s uniqueness.

To support the child’s personality to express positively and meet the world of people, places and things we can use a variety of options. Those which stand out as valuable expressions with which to meet the world include No 3 Cook Strait Groundsel to bring in self confidence, No 7 Mountain Parahebe to assist with the communication of ideas and listening, No 9 Koru to be understanding of others and to be understood and No 20 Wineberry to work in relationship cooperatively with others and mix easily.

To assist the soul to maintain and sustain its expression and presence you may include: No 77 Clematis to be comfortable with one’s soul power and at ease with ones physicality in life. No 77 Clematis is also a protective shield of white light for the child.

You may also choose to include the child’s constitutional medicine. This will include the keynote flower for their personality and plant for their soul’s life path. You can discover their Constitutional Essence© on the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® website

The orchid collection is also available to our children to nourish and feed them from spirit. Talk to a registered First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand practitioner to learn more about how these essences can support your child’s unique needs.

As a parent of a child in today’s world, it can be challenging to understand the place from which they stand and experience life. The Rite of the Six Moons© program is one way to energetically upgrade and align to our children’s standing place to better equip us as parents to meet the needs of children in the 21st century. Having participated on the Rite of the Six Moons© has been a gift to my children, enabling me to ‘keep up’ with them and allowing our souls to grow and evolve simultaneously. Children and nature - our greatest teachers.
