Honoring the Spirit In Others
There is so much divisiveness in the world these days – political, religious, rich vs poor (where did the middle class go?). In our community one hot topic is the push for a new export terminal that will receive coal coming from Montana and ship it to China. That means lots of coal trains and lots of huge tankers going by our little island and through salmon and orca whale habitat. Some people in Whatcom County are for the project because it will create jobs; others say the jobs are temporary or people will be brought in to fill them without much benefit to the community. Others are concerned with how coal dust will affect our health, the environment, and contribute to global warming. The native peoples say the location for the port is on a sacred burial ground. The outcome of this could affect generations of people in this area and around the globe. For me the outcome of finding an alternative to a coal terminal is crucial. However, how we think about, talk about and treat everybody involved in the discussions is of even more importance. For humans to evolve out of constant conflict, we have to learn to see each differently. Yet it is so easy to forget that we are all Spirit having a human experience. Time to practice. Cooley’s Hedge Nettle Flower Essence will be your Guide.
Cooley’s Hedge Nettle is an essential essence in the Triple Burner and Small Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Blends and is the featured essence this month. This summer enjoy the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual benefits of having your fire element in balance.
Cooley’s Hedge Nettle Flower Essence
Cooley’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 is a prolific ground cover that prefers moist to wet soils. The bright pink-to-purple 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 flower essence level, Cooley’s Hedge Nettle 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, because we are all Spirit having a human experience. Cooley’s Hedge Nettle Essence is called for when you forget this and fall into blaming, judging and pointing fingers. It helps you to honor the person as Spirit regardless of his/her words or actions.
Cooley’s Hedge Nettle Essence also works at the energetic level to bring the endocrine system into balance which can alleviate symptoms like mood swings, thyroid or adrenal gland imbalances, body temperature swings and sweats.
As Cooley’s Hedge Nettle Flower Essence says of itself:
I AM honoring others by emotionally sorting and responding from higher consciousness.

Fire Element: Summer Season
Fire is warmth & 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 intimacy 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.
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.
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.

Small Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Essence Blend
The small intestine is the yang to the heart’s yin. It is the body’s alchemist. Its job is sorting on all levels what is useless from what is useful, then absorbing and transforming it for your continued health. On the physical level, it governs sorting and assimilation of food. Emotionally it sorts for the heart, helping you to understand experiences and to determine healthy and appropriate relationships. Mentally it sorts ideas and thoughts to help you make clear choices.
Use Small Intestine Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you have food allergies or other difficulty with sorting and assimilating food. Shoulder, arm and neck pain, TMJ, strokes, earaches and difficulty sorting sounds are typical symptoms. The main emotional pattern is a consistent problem discerning healthy relationships – whether family, lover, friend, or work. Sarcastic comments may cover up emotional confusion. Over analyzing information or situations and difficulty sorting ideas and setting priorities, especially between 1PM – 3PM, can lead to confused input that makes the decision-making and implementing jobs of the gallbladder more difficult.
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. 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 assists you to dissolve armoring in the arms, shoulders neck and jaw, leading to less constriction in these areas. Emotionally, it encourages 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.
