For the Lightworkers.....
to restore their faith in God.
A very spiritual essence.
Inspired by the yarrow flowers
growing in a very special, sacred place.
Around the time of late 1998 through to April
1999, I had spent
a lot of time walking the tracks
on Mt. Kaukau, high up in the hills above Wellington,
between the suburbs of Khandallah and Johnsonville.
A number of flower essences
were made there, and also the
Pounamu gem essence, which fills a very
special and unique role in the New Millennium
There was a special place, what I called my
“Sacred Hill”, where
I would sit in the sun
with the flowers and water in the wine glass,
and I would meditate or read while waiting for
the essence to be made.
Or, sometimes, I would work on my own healing,
as this time of my life was a time of very
intensive personal growth and healing.
From April 1999, when I moved north to Raumati
South, it was
not so convenient for me to spend time on Mt. Kaukau.
I did however,
intend to return, in order to make an essence of the wild yarrow.
I had seen the yarrow in flower on Mt. Kaukau the previous summer, but
at that time the timing was not right to make the essence..... the energies
were not yet in alignment for the making of the yarrow essence. So, I had
set the intent to return the following summer to make the yarrow essence.
So, on this day of 6th November, 1999, I returned, to keep my “appointment
with Nature”, to make the flower essence from the wild yarrow.
When I arrived, I found, much to my dismay, that the yarrow was not yet in
flower! Following my initial disappointment, I thought “Oh well, it's really
nice to be back here, anyway, in my “Special Place”, sitting in the sun on my
“Sacred Hill”, I may as well enjoy my time here”.
I then became aware of another wild plant, another so-called “weed”..... like
it was calling out to me, telling me that it needed to be made into an essence,
only this plant was in flower and ready. I looked around, and I saw, among
the wild grass and other “weeds”, hundreds of plantain plants, all of them in
So, my trip here, the drive down from the Kapiti Coast to Wellington, and the
climb up the track to the hill-top, carrying my essence-making equipment in
my little pack on my back (I was always well-organised for these little essence-
making “field trips”), was not just to spend a pleasant day meditating and
reading in the sunshine. Click

As it turned out, I never did return to Mt. Kaukau to make the wild yarrow
essence. Circumstances intervened, and I somehow never made it back to
Mt. Kaukau. However, later that same summer, on 12th March 2000, I was
visiting my friend Jane, at her lovely rural property
inland from the Kapiti Coast,
and I saw the wild
yarrow was in flower there. So I made the Yarrow essence
that day, the same
day that I also made the
Eagles Eye, the
Coriander and the
And, it was very appropriate that the yarrow essence be made there, on that day,
in that lovely peaceful valley on a sunny summer's day with a gentle breeze
blowing and the birds singing, and a group of like-minded souls, “Lightworkers”,
gathered together doing the “Dances of Universal Peace”.
“I am totally ready to come into a close
relationship with God and the Divine.”
