Relaxed with Nature
At first I didn’t know what was going on. A haze of smoke filled the air. Later that day, we found out that huge amounts of forests in British Columbia, Canada were on fire and the wind was blowing the smoke past us, as far south as Seattle. I saw a satellite photo of the largest wildfire. It looked to be a 100-mile cloud of smoke. A couple of days later, on July 4th, a wildfire broke out on a very small island just east of us, burning about 12 acres. We lived in smoke for over a week. All of the Pacific Northwest is so dry that it is a tinderbox just waiting for a spark. I began to feel fear in my heart…Is this the new normal? Finally a light rain, the first in several months, cleared the air.
This isn’t only my story. Other folks all around the country and the world have stories, many much more dramatic than mine, about how changing weather patterns are affecting them. A collective fear about climate change, heat waves, drought and wildfires is growing. It engenders a sense of danger from nature, a vulnerability that we find frightening. It’s easy to feel powerless. Instead let’s stay in our hearts and compassionately serve our Mother Earth.
Recently a friend of mine said, “I’m so tired of people getting freaked out about weather change. Let’s do something! The trees have told me that trees are the answer. People need to plant trees and bring back the big forests, the lungs of the Earth.” Another friend holds water healing ceremony every Friday. You can find out more here.
The small intestine is a heart protector. In addition to its physical job of sorting food, the small intestine also sorts on mental and emotional levels. It helps us to sort through the collective fear and make choices for how we want to respond. The Small Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Blend supports the healthy functioning of the small intestine system on all levels. Our Spiritual Spine Life Process Essence Blend supports you to stand in your power, with courage, to make choices and take action. Soapberry and Spirea are key essences in both of these blends. All of these are on special mid-July through mid-August.

Soapberry Flower Essence
Soapberry is also known as soopalallie, Canada buffaloberry and russet buffaloberry. It grows in dry to moist open forest and clearings at low to subalpine levels The yellowish-brown inconspicuous flowers are borne in clusters on stems before the leaves open. The fruits are small, soft, bright red berries that are oval and somewhat translucent. The soapy berries were used as soap and medicinally. However, it is best know as Indian ice cream. The berries were whipped into frothy foam and sweetened with salal berries or camas bulbs.
On the flower essence level, Soapberry encourages you to live in harmony and rhythm with Nature, in Nature’s time. It energetically washes clean a fear of slowing down to feel yourself in a natural rhythm with nature, and instills delight to connect with natural surroundings. Soapberry Flower Essence clears and balances the back of the 3rd eye chakra, the recently opened occipital chakra, the back of the throat chakra and the back of the Higher Heart chakra. This affects the muscles and tendons of the upper back and shoulders, providing relaxed strength and facilitating information intake through this area.
As Soapberry flower essence says of itself:
I AM relaxed delight in my natural surroundings

Spirea Flower Essence
Spirea, commonly known as hardhack, is native to the western North American. It grows in sunny to partly shady moist soil, especially around the edges of streams and marshes. It spreads by runner roots and in a good location can grow into a nearly impenetrable thicket that is wonderful for wetland nesting birds. Bees also love the long clusters of pinkish-purple fuzzy flowers. Its leaves are long and somewhat egg-shaped. Hardhack’s thick and wiry branches have been used to make many implements including brooms, and spits for smoking salmon or roasting clams.
On the essence level, Spirea Flower Essence invites you to pull down the barriers around your heart and to experience that it is safe to be open. It encourages you to embody divine light and to live a fully engaged life filled with compassionate equanimity. Spirea Flower Essence sparks your creativity to be used generously in service to others and our Mother Earth. It enhances physical vitality from the heart.
As Spirea Flower Essence says of itself:
I AM compassionate equanimity pouring forth from
an open and generous Spirit-filled heart.

Small Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Blend
The 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. Its season is summer and its element is fire.
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.
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.

Spiritual Spine Essence Blend

It aligns your chakras, and keeps you connected energetically to Mother Earth’s energy fields while experiencing your multidimensional Self. Spiritual Spine supports you to stand in your power and see through the illusion of the collective fear, to sense what feelings are yours and what are not. Then to compassionately and gently release what is not yours. All the while being able to function in your daily life.
