First Light Flower Essence Tips

No.48 Maire - Tree Essences No's 44-50

The Voice of Creation – A Voice for Creation

The chakras are metaphysical energy centres or doorways through which powerful life force, prana or chi flows. No. 48 Maire corresponds to the throat chakra which is the energy centre that facilitates self expression and creativity. The throat chakra helps to ensure that the body’s equilibrium is maintained and therefore acts as the guardian of one’s health. 

A balanced and harmonious throat chakra can be seen in one who uses a resonant voice for constructive positive speech and is a good listener. This is also demonstrated by one who knows when to speak and when to be silent. If an imbalance occurs, there are two distinct forms of expression.

An over-compensating expression of the throat chakra may present as:
• Poor listening skills
• Talking too much
• Verbally interrupting

An under-compensating expression of the throat chakra may present as:
• A small weak voice
• Prone to creativity blocks
• Not speaking up for oneself

The Personal Power Set containing the 7 native tree essences balance, strengthen, protect, energise and clear the chakras and also address secondary fears held in the chakras that generally express as anxieties.



New study units for Healers and Shamanic essences

Dear First Light travellers,

I am pleased to announce the introduction of the new study units for Healers and Shamanic essences. This initiative is one that has been dear to my heart for a considerable time now and I am thrilled that it is now finally a reality.

As some of you will know, the Healers and Shamanic essences were taught at the Medicine Woman retreat at Tauhara. As this is no longer the case, the study units are now offered as online courses in the First Light Cyber School.

First Light flower essences No’s 1-84 are the ‘general practitioners’ of the First Light range addressing around 85% of presenting issues. Healers and Shamanic essences No’s 85-120 are the ‘specialist’ essences of the First Light range, addressing deeper soul and spirit based issues.

The First Light Healers and Shamanic courses focus on Note A of the Healing Chord. Notes B and C of the Healing Chord are covered in the Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic Studies™ programs, Certificate in Healers Studies© and Certificate in Shamanic Studies©.

Each course manual contains background information about Healers and Shamanic essences and Nature’s Advanced Healing Matrix©. You will find in-depth information about each essence, including therapeutic application, potential after working with the essence, indications for use and a case study. The online study units are as follows:


  • Healers Essences
  • NZNFE 111 Unit One covers Healers essences No’s 85-90
  • NZNFE 112 Unit Two covers Healers essences No’s 91-96

  • Shamanic Essences
  • NZNFE 113 Unit One covers Shamanic essences No’s 97-104
  • NZNFE 114 Unit Two covers Shamanic essences No’s 105-112
  • NZNFE 115 Unit Three covers Shamanic essences No’s 113-120


First Light courses NZNFE 101-115 are modular which means any student may enrol in any course in any order. To enrol in an online course, go to www.nzfloweressences.co.nz/courses/study-at-home


Diploma Qualification:

To be eligible for the Diploma of New Zealand Native Flower Essence Therapy, Dip. NZNFE a student must have first attained the Certificate of New Zealand Native Flower Essence Therapy, Cert. NZNFE. Certificate and diploma criteria are available in the First Light online cyber school library.

At present, students who attended the Tauhara retreat in the years when Healers and Shamanic essences were taught, are eligible to attain a diploma. This option is available until May 1 2015. After that date, all diploma students will need to complete the study courses NZNFE 111-115 to be eligible for a diploma.


The cost for each course is $170 for first time students.
Current diploma holders may enrol at a cost of $85 per course (please contact study@nzfloweressences.co.nz to register).


A new classroom has been created to support Healer and Shamanic students. Upon enrolment in a course you will be given access to the classroom for three months. This is a space where you can ask questions and link in with other students as you study.

My thanks are extended to my fantastic team of dedicated individuals who are working very hard to make your learning experience with First Light one that is state of the art as well as one that is interesting, informative and engaging.

With much aroha,
