I’m a good Libra – always seeking balance. This time of year, at the Equinox, is a potent time to focus on balance and entry into spring. We live in a culture of duality – good/bad, yes/no, right/wrong, light/dark, seen/unseen, spirit/matter. In reality most of life is a continuum between these polarities. It benefits us to find a place of peace and rest at a focal point of balance. (Spoken like a good Libra!)
The essences and blends that work with balance are dear to my heart, and as it turns out, to my lungs and brain, too. I’m featuring DuRen Meridian Blend and Brain Organ Blend this newsletter. Lungwort and Outrageous Rose Flower Essences are in both blends. All of these are on special through mid-April.
Enjoy this time of equal daylight and night. Relax into the balance and let it inform your daily life.
Lungwort Flower Essence
Most of us operate from a mindset of duality. We tend to focus on right/wrong, yes/no, good/bad etc. within ourselves and in our daily life. As your two lungs operate in unison, Lungwort Flower Essence helps you to integrate opposite aspects of yourself into harmonious living.
At a deeper level, Lungwort Flower Essence helps you to move beyond duality to find balance and harmony between the “unseen and the “seen”. Take a computer for example. We see the words and images on the screen. Yet we don’t see the electrons moving through the system making everything work. And we don’t see the series of zeros and ones underlying the code that makes the program function. A personal example for me is sensing the connection with the plant spirit who downloads the unique imprint of Lungwort. I don’t actually see the vibrational download that creates this essence, yet I know that it is happening and when it is finished. At this level, the Lungwort Flower Essence helps you to come into dynamic harmony with the “unseen” that underlies your daily life.
And Lungwort Flower Essence reminds you to slow down and soften by connecting with your heart.
As Lungwort Flower Essence says of itself:
I AM experiencing beyond duality into the dynamic balance between the “unseen” and the “seen.”

Outrageous Rose Flower Essence
The two hemispheres of the cerebral cortex of the brain share information through the corpus callosum, an arched bridge of nerve tissue. The limbic (mammalian) part of the brain relates to emotions and memory. Disruptions in the communication between the two hemispheres of the cerebral cortex through the corpus callosum in conjunction to disruptions in the limbic system can lead to symptoms such as difficulty with reading, typing, memory, physical coordination or feeling divided and having strong unbalanced emotions.
Outrageous Rose Flower Essence works through the energetic pathways that facilitate communication through the two brain hemispheres and the limbic system. This facilitates processing what is actually happening from a place of balanced intellect and emotions and leads to experiencing balance and harmony in your daily life.
As Outrageous Rose Flower Essence says of itself:
I AM balanced intellect and emotions creating harmony daily life.

DuRen Organ Energy Meridian Blend
The Du and Ren meridians are two of the eight Extraordinary Meridians. The Du meridian (AKA Governing Vessel) controls all of the yang meridians and is the reservoir of yang energy. The Ren (AKA Conception Vessel) monitors and directs the yin meridians and is the reservoir of yin energy. They supply and circulate chi in the body and sustain core strength and energy for life.
Use DuRen Energy Meridian Essence Blend when you feel chronically exhausted or unstable to your core – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. The Du Ren Blend works at the points on the Du and Ren meridians, including the chakras, to integrate high frequency energies into your body. When this process flows smoothly your body/mind/spirit connection stays within the balance of dynamic equilibrium. A balanced Ren meridian enhances emotional, mental and spiritual stability, restores life force and vitality. It regulates the 3 spaces (burners) and related organs. A balanced Du meridian enhances emotional, mental and physical strength to stand in your own power, and it encourages you to have the “spine” to engage life from your authentic self.

Brain Essence Blend
Science and medicine usually treat the brain (and body) as if it were a machine – fix the broken part with this chemical additive/drug. The brain is actually a biochemical, electrical, multi-dimensional, quantum processor. Still it is handy to use the analogy of a computer, a quantum computer. The brain regulates the flow of the biochemical, electrical, multi-dimensional information much like the operating system of a computer. Since it is quantum, information can come in from other dimensions, sources that we may not consciously understand. I believe that this is a natural part of our evolutionary process as humans. If you are on a fast track spiritual process, or are an indigo or crystalline person, you may find the Brain Blend a helpful ally.
Also, like a computer, memory is decentralized and is stored in bits and bites in a large number of places throughout the brain, body and energy fields. To pull together a complete “file” or memory requires retrieving and interpreting electrical and biochemical “data” from all of these places. Our beliefs, customs and habits are created by repeated use of certain neural pathways and biochemical states. These in effect become like the computer software, interpreting new sensory information and impressions. When all of this is functioning in a harmonious and balanced state, we think clearly, feel openly and our biochemistry facilitates our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual wellbeing. When there has been injury, disease, trauma or other kinds of disruption in harmonious brain functioning, you may experience a wide range of symptoms.
The Brain Blend facilitates clearer thinking with more focus and increased emotional and mental stability. It increases whole brain functioning by supporting the energetic pathways that facilitate neural and biochemical communication between all parts of the brain and related functions in the body. This leads to a greater sense of wellbeing.

2018 Practitioner Training Course
“Discovering flower essences and the magic of Tree Frog Farm through Diana has opened new doors for me by deepening my understanding of plants and their healing spirits and abilities. While I am not a practitioner, I have studied and incorporated herbal remedies into my everyday life for the last decade to maintain my own health and the health of my family and friends. Diana’s classes showed me how to connect the intuitive and the practical power of flower essences into my daily life in a more meaningful way. Diana is the real deal as a practitioner, teacher and messenger in the plant world. I highly recommend her classes for practitioners and herbalists who want a deeper connection and understanding of the healing and nurturing powers of flower essence remedies and how to use them in everyday life.”

The Seed Underground, A Growing Revolution to Save Food By Janisse Ray
In most parts of the country it is too early to plant a garden, but it is the time to plan and buy seeds! I love perusing seed catalogs and dreaming of this year’s garden. After reading the Seed Underground, I’ll be looking for open pollinated varieties and checking in with our local seed swap. I’m becoming passionate about protecting seeds. It may not seem like it but seeds are vanishing, at least the kind that we can grow and save more seed for next year. Behind their backs, corporate giants are patenting seeds grown by indigenous people and farmers for generations. People are being taken to court on claims of intellectual property rights violation for growing their familiar vegetables at home! Find out what is happening and how to be a seed revolutionary!
