Say 'NO!' to Fear
Mother Nature’s Answer in a Time of Need
With so much happening in the world right now, you may be feeling fearful, stressed and overwhelmed! It is true to say that collectively humanity is experiencing significant and unprecedented challenges and it is easy to get swept into the negativity, chaos and fear that we are constantly confronted with in others and by the media.
Over the past few days we have had emails from people in our First Light® community asking us what First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® we would recommend for support when feeling afraid and when there is so much uncertainty, global upheaval and change.
I Love This Holistic Healing System
"Recently I attended a First Light® class by my sister Irene Groeneveld Dekker on her last trip to the Netherlands. Over the years I have regularly taken First Light® flower essences. After doing the First Light® Flowers of Transformation course here in Holland with Irene, I now feel I understand parts of my personality to a different level. It is like being introduced to 36 aspects of myself that have been waiting for me, some more than others naturally. I am interested in learning how the First Light® flower essence qualities are used for holistic healing and I love how this holistic healing system brings together insights from many wisdom schools. Positively excited to explore the First Light® essences and studies further!"
Yolanda Groeneveld, GP, Acupuncturist, The Netherlands
Results Were Amazing!
"I gave my son First Light® flower essences: No 36 Native Linen Flax (self- directed motivation, lives ideals and dreams), No 19 Lovers daisy (which is his keynote essence) to support poise, inner balance, staying true to self, empowered relating, intuitive decision making and No 64 Koromiko to support wisdom, use of initiative, spiritual equilibrium and tranquility. So after 2 weeks the results were amazing. He has become less challenging and more confident. He is being really brave. His dad is away in Afganistan and after an initial wobble he has been really okay about it."
Lizzie Nicolson, Occupational Therapist, Aromatherapist, London, United Kingdom
The first step to success!
"I am the first registered professional in Spain of First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand®. After finishing my studies with First Light®, I was keen to get my certificate in New Zealand Native Flower Essence Therapy with First Light® and become a First Light® registered professional. I am very grateful to have achieved this goal with the warm support given by Franchelle in the special online school. So I would like to recommend it to everyone interested because professional certification is the first step to success!"
Monserrat Escoda, Economist, Coach and Flower Essences Practitioner, Barcelona, Spain
"I enjoyed learning about the primal urges for expression of each zodiacal sign and how the energy flows in a natural cycle when moving in an unimpeded fashion which is life enhancing. I have gained an understanding on how deeply the experience of a primal wound can distort the true expression of our personality and how to identify which area of life is affected. Applying this to myself and close family members has given me a far greater understanding of the far reaching implications of primal wounding when not addressed, and gratitude for the gift of the First Light® flower essences to deal with these wounds."
Suzanne Showers-Gay, Australia
"Every section of the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® training has been wonderfully enlightening. I enjoyed learning about the interaction of personality, aura, chakras, DNA and soul. The five families of essences work together in a wholistic healing matrix. During the Seeds courses, I very much enjoyed looking at my family history as I find genealogy fascinating and relevant to how we absorb our negative or positive beliefs, shadows, behaviour and fears from our ancestors, past lives and the journey through this present life. I am very pleased to have finally completed all 10 of First Light® courses and to achieve the certificate and become a registered practitioner using this sensational, comprehensive range of essences made from the Sacred Plant Medicine of New Zealand.”
Gillian Crundwell, Ecologist and Herbalist, Australia
Profoundly Life Changing
Working with the Fern Collection of seven essences No's 37-43 as a blend has been profoundly life changing. In my occupation, I use the Fern essences blend to cleanse and clear my aura, and the spaces around me. The effect that it has had on me is equivalent to washing away the dross so that I do not trail these messy energies into other areas, or take them home.
