First Light® flower essence No 77 Clematis – Puawananga 

Remember to look towards the lighter side of life and meet life with one’s full power.

Clematis as a plant is just such a joy to discover. Clematis is a creeper and in the wild it grows over other bushes and plants. It looks like a dancer in the wind on top of the world.
On a beautiful spring day, sun shining bright, I saw Clematis for the first time. Clematis’ white leaves were lit up by the sun as if they were translucent, a magical sight.
As a flower essence it brings this light as well, it teaches us to take things lightheartedly and to light up a little.

Apart from that it is also a powerful protector, and does this through exactly that same quality, humour and being light of heart so we can meet and withstand negativity and create a shield of white light for ourselves.
It is a plant that knows about the light and the dark of life and and helps up to see life in this way, not black or white, but good and bad and everything in the middle. 
Children naturally gear towards Clematis and this essence is an excellent essence for children who are afraid of the things that go bump in the night or light, or need a little bit of protection in the many ventures in life.
This essence is often used in a combination blend – White Light of protection – perfect for kids having trouble sleeping at night or when unsure on venturing out into the world.
