"The First Light Flower Essences have proven to be an amazing tool of healing within my holistic health coaching practice. Within a very short time frame this range of essences has touched my heart deeply through the many levels of healing they have shown possible. I look forward to further empowering my clients towards living fully inspired, healthy lives through ‘their’ teachings.” - Martike de Grip, Holistic Health Coach, Hong Kong
There are ten collections or families of essences in the First Light range.
The first eight collections of essences are comprised of Flowers, Ferns, Trees, Seeds, Plants, Healers, Shamanic and Orchids. They correspond to the eight dimensions of holistic wellbeing. According to traditional tohuna Dr Rangimarie Turuki Arikirangi Rose Pere C.B.E. C.M. these eight dimensions of holistic wellbeing are symbolically represented by Te Wheke the octopus with its eight tentacles one of the most ancient symbols for healing and wisdom.
These eight tentacles are understood in Maori spirituality to cover the eight dimensions of our multifaceted holistic make up.
Like the tentacles of the Te Wheke the octopus each of the eight First Light collections has a different energetic focus.
The following two collections move into the world of the Fern Allies - guardians and protectors, and the Sacred Mountain Grasses - conduits of magical prayer allowing access to ancient wisdoms, moving us into alignment with our greater work.
