All cultures throughout history of the human experience of the Earth Story have raised their heads in awe to look at the mountain tops.
At the dawn of the new millennium in July 1999, a sacred call was being sent out by the two co-founders of First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® Franchelle Ofsoské-Wyber and Anthony Wyber at a special ceremony conducted to officially welcome the Aquarian Age, ‘The Age of Cherishing Waters’. That call asked the gods and goddesses, the nature power of New Zealand to provide the people of the world, the world community, with the healing necessary for the unprecedented holistic and spiritual challenges and difficulties to be faced by them and the planet in the 21st century.
First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® came into being.
As Franchelle and Tony were sending out the sacred call in spirit, my human self was on my ‘OE’, as many young kiwis do, experiencing life in London town.
A part of my soul, deep in my psyche heard that call and responded…. ‘Let’s go trekking in Mt Everest for the Millenium New Year’.
It was an easy plan to hatch – we were being told that Y2000 would stop all computers on the stroke of midnight 31.12.1999 and the world would fall apart. So why not be in the middle of one of the world’s most remote and isolated places – nearly 6000m above sea level and more than half way up the highest mountain in the world. There were no shortage of trekking companies offering to escort me and my fella.
So sure enough, we stepped out on a great and life changing adventure.
An adventure that would lead to an awakening. Both unexpected and pre-destined.
And just a few months after my soul was quietly shaken by that call initiated by Franchelle on the east coast of New Zealand, I would find myself alone, at dawn, high up in the oxygen starved air of the Himalaya mountains.
Sitting in the snow, sucking in the frozen air and gazing up.
Mesmorised by the gentle hues of the first morning light caressing the snow cap of the highest mountain on Earth.
Mt Everest – Sagarmatha – Chomolungma – the Holy Mother.
There She was – this is the moment I saw Her for the first time.
My heart felt Her, knew Her, remembered Her, loved Her.
She was the Earth Mother.
She was the Divine Mother, the Goddess.
She united with me and within me, igniting the spiritual flame of my heart.
Gifting me gnosis. I am That.
In those moments I felt her to be the Ancient Grandmother of all humanity – she had witnessed us all, through all of time, all events, all atrocities, all victories and glories – She Loved Us All.
Her benevolence, her knowing, her unconditional and eternal love blessing us all, everywhere, all the time.
This was an igniting that pierced deeply in to my soul and redirected the compass of my life.
This call would lead me back home to Aotearoa, New Zealand within months. And in the following few years bring me to the healing path of the First Light Flower Essences of New Zealand® and later the unfolding spiritual training of the Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Esoteric Studies® programs.
The Mother had called me home, and I responded.
What started as a personal journey, a holiday, culminated with a marriage proposal and engagement more than half way up the highest mountain in the world, and became a starting point. A spiritual initiation, and a beginning…
