April 2009: Spring Into Practical Action

Douglas Fir TreeIn the midst of major body/mind/emotional shifts during these rapidly changing transformational times, we still need to function in our daily lives. Having just passed an intense new moon that swept out a deeper level of unconscious debris and put my body/mind through major changes, I can attest to the challenges of being practical in the midst of it all.

Spring Into Practical Action

This month I’m featuring a group of 3 essences that I find as welcome allies during this continuing process. Douglas Fir Tree was made last spring and is the featured essence this month.

Douglas Fir Tree Essence

Douglas fir trees grow in dry to moist forests from coastal British Columbia, Canada to central California, U.S. In Oregon and Washington states, it is a dominant species from the crest of the Cascade mountain range to the coast. Flat needles that create a “bottle-brush” appearance around the stem and 2 to 4 inch cones that accumulate on the ground under the tree are effective ways to identify Douglas fir trees. Coastal indigenous peoples used the wood for fuel, spear handles, harpoons, fire tongs, and fishhooks. The pitch was used to seal the joints of tools and other implements, for caulking canoes and to make salves for wounds and skin irritations. Also, Douglas fir trees provide food for some native butterflies.

As an essence, Douglas fir tree encourages you on the energetic, emotional and physical levels to be fully in your legs. It does this by strengthening the energetic circuits that support the peripheral nervous system in the legs, so you can feel solidly rooted in your legs. Then it promotes confidence to step out with practical action.

As Douglas Fir Tree Essence says of itself:

I AM confident practical grounded action.

April’s Set of 3 Essences: Spring Into Practical Action

(More flower remedy blends are in the process of ripening. Stay tuned.)

According to the Chinese 5 Element view of life, spring is related to the liver and gallbladder systems that, in part, govern planning and taking action. The flower essences of this set work together to help you organize your thinking, projects and daily life in the context of your larger spiritual process, then confidently step into grounded practical action.

Douglas Fir Tree: Stand in your own power, solidly rooted in your legs. Ground your ideas and step out confidently with practical action.

Red Huckleberry: Helps to organize and facilitate the mental process of thinking and planning.

Osoberry: Aligns you with the ability to embody your larger purpose for this lifetime while staying grounded and centered amidst the various activities and responsibilities of your daily life.

Generally take 1 or 2 drops (drops not dropperfuls) of the essences in this set orally 2 to 3 times per day directly from the bottle or added to a glass of drinking water. If you know that you are sensitive to essences or other energy modalities you may want to start at a lower amount.
