July 2012: Enjoying the Fire of Summer

While some parts of the country are having record heat, the coastal Pacific Northwest is having a cool summer so far. Daytime temperatures are pretty steady from the mid 50’s to low 60’s. What can I say… We live in a temperate rain forest, lush and green. Still I’d welcome more sunshine and warmth.

Enjoying the Fire of Summer

My internal temperature feels like it swings more than the outside temperature. Sometimes I sense a fiery energy dancing through my body, it may move subterranean or burst forth as a major hot flash. Other times I feel chilled while sitting in the sunshine. Have you ever noticed how your emotions and moods swing with changes in body temperature? It’s very interesting to watch.

Valerian flower essence is a wonderful ally for physical or emotional temperature swings. It is an essential essence in the Triple Burner and Small Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Blends and is the featured essence this month.

Valerian Flower Essence

The valerian plants in our garden are just starting to bloom. What a lovely sight and wonderful scent! Besides being a garden favorite, valerian grows wild in damp conditions in Europe, northern Asia and the Pacific coast of North America. Although there are different varieties, the medicinal qualities are the same. Valerian herb is used to treat anxiety, stress and insomnia. It calms the mind and relaxes muscles.

On the flower essence level, Valerian Flower Essence works through the energetic circuits that regulate heat and cools excessive fire on the emotional, mental and physical levels. Unresolved anger and other buried negative emotions can lead to hot flashes, sweats, headaches, anxiousness, high blood pressure, temperature swings, mental agitation and more. Use Valerian Flower Essence to transmute the fire blocking your body/mind from reorienting to a higher emotional state. It also regulates body temperature fluctuation due to cellular change during your spiritual growth process.

As Valerian Flower Essence says of itself:

I AM beneficial fire transforming wildfires into fertile growth.

Fire Element: Summer Season

Fire is warmth and light. It is the spark of physical and spiritual energy. Like the sun, fire is vital to life. Sitting by a fireplace a sense of warmth, love and connection radiates out. If the fire cools down, or rages out of control, it no longer is safe and nurturing. People with fire out of balance may be emotionally and physically cold or overheated, distant or try too hard to prove themselves. They may be sexually shutdown or substitute sex for love. People with balanced fire systems live life with zest full of creativity, are warm and nurturing to self and others, are open to new ideas and experiences, have clear personal and sexual boundaries, and are open-hearted with healthy relationships.

Triple Burner Organ Energy Meridian Essence Blend

There 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. It is the yang to the pericardium’s yin.

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.

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.
