Martina’s journey with The Australian Bush Flower Essences
My name is Martina Smíšková. I grew up in a small village near Prague, Czech Republic. As a kid I was always attracted by nature. I loved spending time in the garden and in a nearby forest. When I was making the choice of which school I should attend I was influenced by my parents and older sister, who studied Economy and Foreign Trade. I decided to study at the same school. After I finished my diplomas I started to build my career in the hotel industry. At that time the hotel and tourism segment was growing fast, many foreigners visited our country. As the Director of Rooms Operations in a 5 star hotel I had many responsibilities and tasks and my job became very emotionally and mentally demanding. I had to find a way to manage my stressful job and find some life and work balance.
In 1987 I went on vacation to Australia. I instantly became fascinated by its nature, especially the vivid and diverse colors of Australia’s flowers, it brought me to Australian Bush Flower Essences (ABFE). My first essence I used was Silver Princess. This wonderful essence started to show me my journey. When I was taking it I knew I was destined to work with Flower Essences.
ABFE workshops in the Czech Republic
When my son was born, I finally found the capacity to follow my true calling. Ian White taught his ABFE workshops every year in Europe. After finishing my first workshop I could not wait for Ian’s next teaching trip in order to continue with my Essence studies. I was reading about Essences which slowly became my guides.
In order to spread the information about these deeply healing Essences in our country I became certified to be able to teach their wisdom. There are now more than 80 practitioners in the Czech Republic using in their work ABFE and the number is still growing rapidly. It warms my heart when I see people healing and finding their new direction, their life purpose.
Essence for every situation
Recently I was asked by a number of founders of other Essences to distribute them in our country.
When I tuned in I felt that Essences from Australia are the most powerful and they cover all the possible issues and challenges people are facing right now. I see a huge interest in our country in a spiritual growth. There is so much information and the people are overloaded and confused what is right for them. The Essence Angelsword gives them the answers, Paw Paw Essence helps with the overload and Five Corners reassures them. There is an Essence for every situation.
I find the Love System range very progressive. These cosmetic products are the only ones that take care of not only the beauty of the skin but also of the mental, emotional and spiritual balance of a person. My clairvoyant friend said “If my clients use the mist, creams and lotions regularly, they clean off the everyday stress and I can focus to work with Essences more deeply as they work more quickly”.
I am very happy that the Plant Kingdom sent to us such great helpers in the form of ABFE that can assist us in this transforming period on the Earth.
