Rebirthing Yourself in 2016
2012 was a banner year and I thought our long-term business pregnancy would birth in 2013. Instead we had 2 years of being in the last stages of labor and 1 more year of being in the birth canal. The abrupt shift from “yeah it is time to birth” to “wait, not ready yet,” was somewhat traumatic for me. I went through much fear, uncertainty and reduced confidence about the birthing process. Finally, in 2016 we are birthing! Our first “baby” is the flower essence practitioner training course being offered this year. Adding individual 1/2 ounce Organ Energy Meridian Blends is our second “baby.” And there are more to come. Other people have told me they have had similar experiences the last few years. How about you?
I find it interesting that in the Western cultures we celebrate New Year during winter. It is a deep quiet time, good for reflection. In the Chinese 5 Element understand of life, winter relates to the water element, and transforming fear and trauma in to confidence. The specials this month are Kidney and Bladder Organ Energy Meridian Blends of the water element. Wild Gooseberry is a key essence in both blends. California Poppy is a complement for both on this theme.
Wild Gooseberry Flower Essence
Wild Gooseberry, also know as gummy gooseberry, is a US Pacific NW native deciduous perennial shrub that grows 3-8 feet tall and has thorns at the leaf nodes. It grows best in moist to dry forest edges with partial shade. Maroon and white fuchsia-like flowers provide a valuable food source for hummingbirds. Gooseberries are edible for humans and wildlife.
On the flower essence level, Wild Gooseberry Flower Essence helps you stay open and engaged while facing fear. This could be a current situation or old fear that is locked into your body/being. Intense feelings can propel you forward; however, it’s common instead to contract around the intensity of fear. Wild Gooseberry Essence helps you stay open to what feels intense and experience that new growth, new life can arise from the compost of fear. It instills confidence to participate in new opportunities.
As Wild Gooseberry flower essence says of itself:
I AM transforming fear into engaging life!

California Poppy Flower Essence
California poppy, a self-seeding annual, is native to western North America and prefers sandy, open, sunny sites. It is a pioneer species that is sometimes found in vacant lots, roadsides, and in unexpected places in the garden. A tincture or tea infusion of the aerial parts helps to relieve insomnia, anxiety, spasmodic coughing and pain from acute injury or toothache. Externally the cut root or a salve of California poppy helps to heal cuts or scrapes. It is gentle enough to be used by both children and adults.
On the flower essence level, California Poppy Flower Essence helps to relieve the sense of powerless, hopelessness, anger, or depression that may accompany physical or emotional birth trauma. It encourages your soul to feel at home in your body and to resonate with the sweet song of belonging on Earth. It carries a tender healing for those who have lost babies or their mothers during a birthing process and helps to heal intergenerational wounded hearts. This essence relates to the root, sacral, heart and 3rd eye chakras.
When birthing a new life for yourself, it rebalances the tendency to feel powerless, uncentered, highly emotional, overwhelmed, or unable to move forward with the actions that you want to take. Experiencing any or all of these may lead to anger toward yourself or someone else. California Poppy Flower Essence helps to restore balance and perspective with your process, and encourages your ability to fully engage life.
California Poppy is a very important essence for humanity at this time! We each need to rebirth to higher consciousness and ways of living to create lasting peace on Earth.
As California Poppy flower essence says of itself:
I AM soul empowered and emotionally balanced capacity to fully engage life.

Water Element: Winter
Water is the primal mother of organic life. It is wet, fluid, takes the shape of its container, and conducts electricity. Humans are about 80% water. We need to stay hydrated so our blood, lymph, digestive, excretion and nervous systems can function properly. In Chinese Five Element Theory, water element rules the lymph and immune systems, bones, central nervous system including brain, and the adrenal glands. An imbalanced water system contributes to lack of flow in thoughts and feelings. It is associated with the subconscious mind and the emotion of fear. The season of the water element is winter and the colors are blue/black.
Kidney Organ Energy Meridian Blend
The kidney organ energy system (kidney system) is the yin to the bladder’s yang. It is the source and storehouse of physical life force, chi. Bones and the lymphatic system are ruled by the kidney system. Bone marrow produces white and red blood cells and lymphocyte cells that support the immune system. The kidneys purify blood.
The kidney system holds the memory of family lineage trauma. Fear and shock are the emotional responses most associated with the kidney system. Adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and produce adrenaline that participates in the body’s fight/flight/freeze response and cortisol that stimulates stress. Long-term adrenaline and cortisol over production, partly brought on by chronic fear, can lead to adrenal burnout and chronic fatigue. The kidney meridian is most active from 5pm to 7pm.
Symptoms: Use Kidney Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you experience reoccurring kidney stones or diseases, shock and fear, panic attacks, adrenal depletion, chronic fatigue, or frequently feel wired-tired. A person with kidney system imbalance often lacks will, motivation, or resilience. Contributes to edema and autoimmune responses.
Action: The Kidney OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical kidney and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to it. This blend activates the immune system and calms the adrenal glands. It shifts fear to confidence, will and motivation, and shock to resilience. The Kidney OEM Essence Blend restores access to the source of your physical life force.

Bladder Organ Energy Meridian Blend
The bladder organ energy system (bladder system) is the yang to the kidney’s yin. Physically, the bladder is the reservoir for fluids waiting to be excreted. Energetically, it is the container for the power of the kidneys and reservoir for daily energy. It encourages you to pace yourself and to rest so you don’t deplete your energy supply, and it supports the immune system. The bladder system relates to the central nervous system including the brain, the emotion of fear and to personal trauma. The meridian is most active from 3pm to 5pm.
Symptoms: Use Bladder Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you experience headaches, back problems, or urinary problems including excessive urination and leaking. Symptoms of bladder system imbalance are a tendency to over exert, unable to complete things due to lack of energy, being inflexible, and fear as a response to life. A deep need to control your environment from not being able to protect yourself or someone else during the experience of trauma is another expression of Bladder System imbalance.
Actions: The Bladder OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical bladder and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to it. This blend supports the healthy functioning of the physical bladder and the immune system. It balances the central nervous system, and the amygdala (fear center) of the brain, encouraging a shift from fear-based existence to living with the sustained energy, confidence, adaptability, and flexibility needed to fully engage your daily life.
