Letting Go Into Your Self
Last weekend I planted 3 more goldenseal roots that we received from United Plant Savers. I placed them by the other 3 that we planted last year. First I had to prep the area by weeding, including digging out some grandmother dandelions. This was a deep letting go, a great sacrifice for the dandelions and I knew I would need to make ceremony to bring balance back to the area so the small patch of 6 goldenseal plants would thrive. As I went through this process, I realized this deep letting go is happening in my life and our business. We think we have a vision, time to let go. We think we are moving forward with plans, time to let go. At moments, I just want to cry, there is so much grief around this. Yet I keep doing the day to day. That is all there is, this moment. What is in front of me this moment is what I do. Surprisingly, when I focus on letting grief and anger arise (yes, anger, too, is a part of grief) and move through, focus on my breath, ground in to my feet, and do what needs to be done in this moment, a flicker of joy sparkles to the surface. If I look inward at the joy, I see it comes from a Presence deep within my Self. A Presence that I usually don’t experience since I keep so busy. A gift of grief is letting go into my Self. Have you had this experience?
Fall is the season of grief, a normal part of loss and letting go. The lung and large intestine systems relate to grief and the fall season, and their respective Organ Energy Meridian Blends are on special this month. Oceanspray Flower Essence is a key essence in both blends and is also on special through October.
Oceanspray Flower Essence
Oceanspray is a native plant of the Pacific Northwest that grows on dry to moist open sites mostly at low to middle elevations and provides cover for small animals and birds. It is commonly called ironwood and was used by indigenous peoples for digging sticks, arrows, hooks, needles and nails. Also, some tribes drank an infusion of the brown fruiting clusters for measles and chickenpox.
On the flower essence level, Oceanspray allows old grief and sorrow to surface and be released. It supports living in your own jubilant Presence.
As Oceanspray Flower Essence says of itself:
I AM your lighthearted, jubilant Presence during times of sorrow.

Metal Element (Air): Fall
Metal is forged from rocks and stones, the minerals of the Earth. As rocks/metals form the structure and strength of mountains, riverbanks, and skyscrapers so does the metal element rule structure and strength on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels for humans. As metal wire forms the basis of telecommunications, so do the metal systems in the body rule the peripheral nervous system and communication between bodily systems. As air, these organ systems breathe in spiritual energies and oxygen through the lungs and skin to sustain the flow of operations in the body. Metal (air) rules excretion from the body – carbon dioxide through the lungs, waste through the large intestine and skin. The season of the metal (air) element is fall and the colors are white/grey.
Lung Organ Energy Meridian Essence Blend
The lung organ energy system (lung system) is the yin to the large intestine’s yang. It is the organ most connected to the spiritual energies accessed through breathing, prana. Its focus is to rhythmically breath in and out, to oxygenate the body and release carbon dioxide, to support you during low emotional moments and inspire you to fully engage life. The lung meridian is most active from 3am to 5am.
Symptoms: Use Lung Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you frequently experience shallow breathing, lung congestion, pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma or colds. Sadness, grief, loss, rejection, abandonment, depression, longing and sense of emptiness are emotional symptoms of Lung imbalance that may lead structurally to a contracted, caved-in chest. A person with Lung system imbalance often has difficulty breathing in the energy of life–prana–and exhaling to fully engage life.
Action: The Lung OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical lungs and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to them. This blend aligns you with the rhythmic order of life, breath. It supports flow through the peripheral nervous system as you engage the ebb and flow of life and loss with ease. Structurally, it encourages your chest to expand as, emotionally, you experience acceptance for your unique self. You begin to recognize your brilliance, your self worth and to share your true self with joy.

Large Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Essence Blend
The large intestine organ energy system (large intestine system) is the yang to the lung’s yin. The symptoms listed below are the embodied expression of grief, loss, guilt, emotional and mental stagnation, or inability to flow with life. The meridian is most active from 5am to 7am.
Symptoms: Use Large Intestine Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you experience constipation or diarrhea, bloating, colon or skin cancer, TMJ, stiff neck or spine, carpal tunnel syndrome, eczema, psoriasis or chronic rashes. Symptoms of large intestine imbalance include holding onto old stuff, stagnation, feeling guilt or regret, thinking you or situations are never good enough. People with large intestine imbalance are often stoic about loss or hardship, rigid, up tight or perfectionists.
Actions: The Large Intestine OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical large intestines and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to them. It supports the large intestine in its job of the final sorting and elimination of what isn’t useful. It activates letting of what is no longer useful on any level in your life – attitudes like not good enough, emotions like old grief or guilt, an old self image or relationships that do not honor your worth. The Large Intestine OEM Blend unblocks stagnation and rigidity allowing flexibility, movement and change.

This fall, let your grief arise and move through. Stay connected to your breath and body. And fill your lungs and body with the joy of your jubilant Presence!
