Cook Strait Groundsel Deva’s Blessing

I bring the gift of sustained confident life force as it moves through you to the place of being that was always meant to be. Through me you become aware of the inner fire that none can steal from you.

No 3 Cook Strait Groundsel is the essence of inner confidence, self-assurance and self-possession. It empowers us to face everyday challenges and setbacks with ease and a steadfast refusal to admit defeat.

No 3 Cook Strait Groundsel is the keynote essence for those born in Aries between April 10 and 19, but brings the energy, passion and drive of Aries to assist every one of us to exude confidence and positive body language in our daily lives.

This essence is the antidote to procrastination and low motivation. It gets us up off the couch ready to face the demands of life. No 3 Cook Strait Groundsel is there for us when we feel anxious and shy about becoming who we want to be in the world.
