Feeling more emotional than usual lately? Much is going with astrological influences, solar flare activity and high frequency energy shifts. Also we are in a season of transition. In the Chinese Five Element approach to living in balance, the Earth Element relates to changing seasons. Often thought of as autumn – the transition time between summer and fall – it is most helpful to support the Earth Element in your body during any season change. Worry, anxiety, overwhelm or emotional instability are indicators that these systems are out of balance. So in this time of shifting from spring to summer – especially with all of the other intense energetic influences – take time to nourish and ground yourself. The organ meridians related to Earth Element are Spleen and Stomach. Woodland Strawberry is a key essence in each of these blends and is the featured essence this month.
Woodland Strawberry Flower Essence
Woodland Strawberry is a US Pacific Northwest native groundcover that has small white 5-petaled rose-like flowers. The tiny strawberries are a bit mealy yet tasty and are a favorite of birds and other small critters. They don’t leave many for us humans to eat. North American indigenous peoples made a strong tea of strawberry leaves or roots for eczema, blood purifying and building, intestinal or urinary issues, night sweats, and strengthening the gums.
On the flower essence level, Woodland Strawberry clears negative thinking, worry and anxiety. By establishing multi-directional channels of communication between mental and emotional functions, Woodland Strawberry Flower Essence pulses the emotional center at the heart chakra to operate independently from the cognitive brain. It also clears static from the channels of communication between your personal mental and emotional energy fields. This supports thinking clearly and feeling authentically, creates a sense of ease during the day and helps you sleep restfully at night.
As Woodland Strawberry Flower Essence says of itself:
I AM clear, free-flowing thoughts and authentic feelings.

Earth Element: Transition Between Seasons
Earth is soft, nurturing and fertile. It is the food we eat that nourishes our bodies and souls. It is our muscles, our center and grounding stability physically, emotionally and mentally. As the earth is fertile, so the earth element rules fertility in humans. With a balanced earth element our relationships are warm and nurturing. The color of the earth element is yellow and it relates to transition time between seasons.
People with earth out of balance may have digestive issues, emotional instability and a difficult time being embodied. Excessive energy in the head – repetitive thinking, planning, worrying or obsessing – is a characteristic of earth element imbalance making it challenging to handle day-to-day mundane tasks.
Spleen Organ Energy Meridian Essence Blend
The spleen/pancreas organ energy system (spleen system) is the yin to the stomach’s yang. It is known as the “source of life” for the other yin organs since it separates the life force energy (chi) from the food the stomach is processing, and sends this chi to the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys. The spleen system itself uses this chi to create blood, circulate it and keep it within the blood vessels. It circulates chi to muscles to keep them strong, and circulates information through out the body supporting memory, concentration and will. The spleen regulates the center; when the center is not stable, excess energy expresses as unproductive repetitive thinking. Since it draws energy up from the body of the Mother Earth, it regulates fertility cycles. The physical spleen/ pancreas regulates blood sugar, produces red blood cells and supports the immune system. The spleen meridian is most active from 9am to 11am.
Symptoms: Use Spleen OEM Essence Blend when you have blood sugar regulation issues such as diabetes or hypoglycemia. Obsessive thinking, foggy headedness, poor memory, fatigue, lack of will, feeling deep emptiness, swelling edema, challenged immune system and fertility issues are all symptoms of spleen imbalance. A person with spleen system imbalance often has lots of ideas, but lacks the motivation or groundedness to implement them.
Action: The Spleen OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical spleen and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to it. This blend activates balanced blood sugar regulation, healthy immune responses and fertility. Structurally it supports strong, flexible muscles. Mentally, it calms excessive and obsessive thinking by rerouting that energy back into the body for life energy. Emotionally, it uses this life force energy for motivation and will to put ideas into action. It provides a deep sense of inner home, of living in your body.

Stomach Organ Energy Meridian Essence Blend
Stomach is the yang to spleen’s yin. The stomach system digests food and experiences, provides nourishment, a sense of stability, center and place on Earth. How you were received at birth and nourished by your mother impacts your ability to feel safe and to nourish yourself. A balanced stomach system supports stepping out into the world with centered confidence, creating nourishing relationships, and facing the challenges of life with balanced emotions. The meridian is most active from 7am to 9am.
Symptoms: Use Stomach Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you have digestive issues like nausea, reflux, eating disorders or ulcers. It is effective with sinus problems, headaches in the forehead, and TMJ. Works with surface skin issues like minor rashes. Emotionally, the Stomach OEM Blend addresses worry, anxiety, feeling unsafe, ungrounded and codependent relationships.
Actions: The Stomach OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical stomach and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to it. It balances your appetite for food and stimulates your appetite for life. It encourages self-nourishment and gracefully receiving abundance. The stomach OEM Blend supports emotional and mental stability, and confidently stepping into the world.
