Deep Healing Programme


Deep Healing

“In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy”
– Albert Szent-Gyorgi

When working with First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® it is often appropriate to work with an essence treatment programme. While using one’s constitutional essence blend on a regular basis is a simple and effective way to support wellbeing, there are times when one may desire or require a more comprehensive and deeper level of healing. I am increasingly recommending a Deep Healing Programme for my clients, which involves taking First Light fern essences, tree essences and seed essences over a six month period. The three stage process replicates the natural order or matrix that restores and sustains holistic wellbeing and inner harmony. It is also a perfection reflection of the sacred healing methods used by shamans, medicine men and woman for thousands of years.

The first stage of the deep healing programme involves taking an essence blend of First Light fern essences for two months (two lunar cycles). This aura cleanse and detox programme addresses the seven individual layers of the aura that hold the seven fundamental traumas and the associated tertiary fears, which express as an unconscious avoidance of specific life situations. The aura holds within it energetic imprints and the cellular memory of everything we have ever experienced and this is why it is important to work with the aura when we are restoring wellbeing. To maintain holistic wellbeing it is vital that all of the layers of the aura are clear, functioning correctly and working together harmoniously. The fern essences can be used to ensure that a river of pure ‘chi’ circulates through our holistic being. By using the fern essences we enhance and support a healthy, robust and strong aura, free from disharmonious energetic imprints.

The second stage of the deep healing programme involves taking an essence blend of First Light tree essences for two months (two lunar cycles). This chakra cleanse and detox programme is designed to balance, strengthen, protect, energise and clear the seven major chakras that correspond to the seven ductless glands and the vital organs of the body. The tree essences address chakra imbalance, impactation and malfunction that can result in over-compensation or under-compensation of the chakras. The tree essences also address secondary fears held in the chakras that generally express as anxiety. The chakras can become blocked when levels of anxiety reach a critical mass and inhibit the natural flow of energy through the chakras, which can prevent or limit the energy flowing through them, which in turn compromises holistic health and wellbeing. Healthy fully functioning chakras direct vital energies to the major organs of the body and facilitate a harmonious energetic resonance throughout the physical and metaphysical being.

The third stage of the six-month deep healing programme involves taking First Light seed essences for two months (two lunar cycles). This ancestral healing and release programme can address ancestral, hereditary and past life issues facilitating the release of problematic patterns and blocks that manifest as health and behavioural problems. The seed essences release primary fears held at the DNA level that generally express as deep unconscious fears, blocks in consciousness or as depression. This programme is designed to release core negative beliefs and distorted limiting programmes, enabling one to redefine, reorient and realign distorted patterns in consciousness. The seeds act as catalysts for deep shifts in consciousness and empower one to break through karmic cycles and overcome inertia. The seed essences enhance, support and maintain optimal DNA function and restore the master patterns for harmonious living and right relationship with all life.

This deep healing programme is suitable for people of all ages and can be undertaken for a variety of reasons. It is particularly beneficial for people who are experiencing chronic or on-going health issues that they have not been able to overcome or move beyond. This deep healing programme can compliment a physical detox to produce a deeper level of detoxification, making it an excellent addition to pre-conception care for those wanting to be in an optimal state of health before they conceive. The deep healing programme can be undertaken by anyone that is wanting to experience deep healing and holistic wellbeing. The programme is a great process for the whole family to go through, promoting harmonious relating and holistic health.


Ideally a deep healing programme should be undertaken before chronic conditions or dis-ease occur. Once dis-ease has manifested in the physical body it can be a difficult and lengthy process to restore harmony and balance, if we can shift or transform dis-ease in the energy body before it manifests at the physical level we can not only heal much more rapidly and with greater ease but we can prevent physical dis-ease from actually manifesting. The individual formulas can be used on a regular or on-going basis to maintain the integrity of the aura, chakras and one’s energetic core (DNA), in this way the essences can support holistic wellbeing in a very proactive and effective way.

The ‘Back to School’ flower essence blend comes in a 25ml treatment bottle (one months supply) available to purchase for $25. The keynote flower essence for your child can also be added to this flower essence blend. If you would like the ‘Back to School’ flower essence blend for more than one child you can purchase an economical 50ml, 100ml or 200ml treatment bottle instead of purchasing individual treatment bottles for each child (add $3.00 for each extra child). I recommend you give your child 2-4 drops each morning, after school and at bedtime. You can also add 4-8 drops in your child’s water bottle so they can benefit from the blend during the day and have access to the flower essences while they are at school. To order a bottle of the Back To School flower essence blend please fill out this form.

If you would like a personalised blend for your child I am available for in-clinic consultations or by phone, email and skype and offer special discounts for children and young people (under 18).

Up to 60 minutes, includes one 25ml treatment bottle (one months supply)
