Mid-July 2016: Joyful Digestion

Joyful Digestion

Pole Beans 2016Our garden is overflowing with abundance this time of year. I am delighted to watch birds eating early seeds and hummingbirds feeding on a variety of flowers including the red blossoms of the pole beans. It got me to thinking about summertime, the fire element and the Triple Burner and Small Intestine Organ Energy Systems that work with digestion. I am fascinated by how our bodies work, by the interplay of food, spirit, metabolism and mental and emotional processes. In late June, I remade the Cooley’s Hedge Nettle Essence. It relates to balancing the endocrine system for better digestion and honoring that each person we interact with is spirit having a human experience and is in both the Small Intestine and Triple Burner Organ Energy Meridian Blends. Hummingbirds visited the Cooley’s Hedge Nettle blossoms while the essence was being made and imprinted their qualities of joy and playfulness into the essence. Sundrop Evening Primrose Flower Essence was made a couple of years ago. It was so unfamiliar to me that I needed time to work with it before introducing it. Now is the time. Sundrop Evening Primrose brings sunny joy into our lives through the solar plexus chakra, which affects digestion. So putting all of this together, we have the opportunity to experience joyful digestion in our lives while honoring everyone as spirit having a human experience. What a beautiful combination of essences for summer! I was able to get a photo of a hummingbird on the red blossoms of our scarlet runner pole beans. They are so tiny that the photo is a bit blurry, but still very sweet!

InJoy, Diana

Cooley’s Hedge Nettle Flower Essence

Cooley's Hedge Nettle copyCooley’s Hedge Nettle is native to the US Pacific Northwest Coast. In the mint family, it has square stems to 5 feet tall with coarsely toothed, fuzzy grey-green leaves and a strong pungent scent. It grows at low elevations and will blanket an area that has moist to wet soils, such as lakeshores, stream banks, forest edges, marshes or moist meadows. The bright pink tubular flowers attract hummingbirds. Medicinally, indigenous peoples used Cooley’s hedge nettle tea as a spring tonic, to cure boils and for rheumatism. Young stems were eaten and nectar sucked from the flowers.

On the essence level, Cooley’s Hedge Nettle works in the etheric energy field to initiate the process of the endocrine system coming into balance. Emotionally, mentally and spiritually, it invites you to connect with your highest consciousness when sorting and digesting experiences. It reminds you that it is important to honor everyone involved in a situation, even if it is difficult, because we are all Spirit having a human experience. Supports the heart chakra and the higher mental and digestive functions of the solar plexus chakra. As your endocrine system and your heart and solar plexus chakras comes into balance and you shift your mindset and interactions with others to a higher level of consciousness, the quality of hummingbird – genuinely living life with joy and playfulness – will bring sweetness to your daily life.

As Cooley’s Hedge Nettle Flower Essence says of itself:

I AM joyful acceptance and honoring of each person in an interaction as spirit have a human experience.

Sundrop Evening Primrose Flower Essence

Sundrop Evening PrimroseNative to dry soil, open fields, and open woods from Nova Scotia to Florida, Sundrop Evening Primrose has become a favorite garden plant. Many alternate narrow green leaves with red spotting grow on thin, hairy, and reddish stems. In mid-summer each stem is topped by a profusion of bright lemon yellow, 4-petaled flowers up to 2 inches across. Unlike most of its relatives, Sundrop Evening Primrose flowers during the day.

On the flower essence level, Sundrop Evening Primrose balances and aligns the solar plexus chakra for healthy digestion. It does this partly by clearing and balancing the energy fields around the spleen, pancreas and stomach. As another function of the solar plexus chakra, this essence encourages you to delight in sharing your genuine Being from the body knowingness of who you are. Sundrop Evening Primrose Essence transmutes low frequency energies in the emotional energy field and instills clear emotional boundaries. It radiates a gentle kindness and joy, like a warm friendly smile, and inspires you to do the same.

Small Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Blend

Small IntestineThe small intestine is the heart’s pair, the yang to the heart’s yin. It is the body’s alchemist. As one of the heart protectors, its job is sorting on the physical, emotional and mental levels what is useless from what is useful, then absorbing and transforming it for your continued health. The meridian is most active from 1pm to 3pm. Its season is summer and its element is fire.

Symptoms: Use Small Intestine Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you have difficulty with sorting and assimilating food. When there is a small intestine imbalance, often the shoulders are pulled up and armored. Shoulder, arm and neck pain, TMJ, strokes are typical symptoms. The main emotional pattern is a consistent problem discerning healthy relationships – whether family, lover, friend, or work. Over analyzing information or situations and difficulty sorting ideas and setting priorities are common for small intestine imbalance.

Action: The Small Intestine OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical small intestine and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to it. Physically, this blend supports the healthy functioning of the small intestine as it sorts and transforms food, feelings and ideas into useful ingredients for the body/mind. Structurally, it encourages dissolving armoring in the arms, shoulders neck and jaw, leading to less constriction in these areas. Emotionally, it supports you to seek relationships that are supportive and nurturing to your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Mentally, Small Intestine OEM Blend helps you to sort information to make better-informed choices. A healthy small intestine system encourages openhearted joy and clear respectful communication.

Triple Burner Organ Energy Meridian Essence Blend

Triple BurnerThere is no physical organ for the Triple Burner system, AKA Triple Warmer, Triple Heater, Umbilicus. It regulates the three “spaces” and related organs and controls relationships between them largely through the endocrine glands and hormonal distribution systems. It is the heating system of the body/mind/spirit interface. As such, it regulates and distributes heat and water through the body. The meridian is most active from 9pm to 11pm. Its season is summer and its element is fire.

Symptoms: Use Triple Burner Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you experience hot and cold physical and emotional upsets. This can express as fevers, chills, hot flashes and night sweats, or thyroid and adrenal gland imbalances. You may be unable to feel or express warmth in relationships and experience a lack of emotional intimacy. You may find it difficult to be your own person, to choose your own way of experiencing life that is different from family and cultural beliefs. Triple Burner relates to autoimmune diseases such as Graves disease and lupus. Other symptoms include digestive issues and loose bowels or constipation. It can relate to headaches in the temples and to ear problems.

Actions: The Triple Burner OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that affect metabolic processes physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. It regulates to all of the organs, balances and circulates warmth and water through the body. Higher frequency spiritual energies enter your body through the chakras, each of which relates to an endocrine gland. The Triple Burner system helps the body to regulate and integrate these energies. Emotionally, it supports circulating social warmth and joy. This system is active in utero, thus the name “umbilicus.” It distributes vital energy to the other meridians as the organs are developing. Your experience in utero can affect your ability to find your own individuality – especially from your mother and family – and to create your own warmth, your own relationships, and your own way of relating to the world.
