A natural way to help manage stress and improve the quality of your life

First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® have been developed to do just that. They work to restore balance and harmony in your life. Sounds too easy doesn’t it but I know they work so why not find out for yourself.

Where do I start?

A good place to begin is finding out what makes up your Constitutional Essence Blend which corresponds to the day and year of your birth. This blend created from the unique native flora of Aotearoa includes one essence from each of the flower, fern, tree, seed and plant essence range.

To help you understand this I will talk about my own Constitutional Blend.

The numerology of my birth date produces the number 21. The five essences below are key elements for me as they directly relate to the day of my birth and will bring a sense of wholeness to my life by helping me gain a better understanding of myself and how I ‘tick’ which can lead to an understanding of my true purpose in this life.

No 16 Small White Rata is my keynote or birthday essence and represents a strong aspect of my personality. It is called the Perfection Essence and is helping me to see the negative or shadow side of myself where I get stuck in the detail and waste time and energy going over and over things. The positive side my personality is to be able to live in the present and have more self-acceptance and  see the bigger picture.

We all have one main fear or trauma that keeps being attracted into our lives and mine is trauma caused by humiliation. No 41 Prince of Wales Feathers Fern clears the ‘cell memory’ of this. I see this one working in me as a fear of speaking up and the feeling of being disrespected. On the positive side I am now doing that right here in this blog! This change is giving me a new sense of freedom.

No 48 from the tree Maire strengthens, protects and energises the throat chakra which is the chakra for the ‘creative word’ and when balanced it helps creativity to flow. I am also a ceramic artist and until recently I preferred working with my hands rather than with my words!

No 55 the seed from Hangehange works to release fears around communication and the fear of being judged. This essence is helping me to creatively express myself and feel confident doing this.

No 83 from the plant Kakabeak is the Completion essence. It took me a long time to see how this manifested in me but looking back I see I ran away from things or ‘hid them under the carpet’ when life became difficult. I wanted to blame everyone else for what was happening to me and not take responsibility for my part in the situation this led to repeated situations with a lack of closure or resolution. This is the major lesson for me to learn if I am going to change old patterns in my life.
