Wisdom of the Ancestors
I wrote the following newsletter a year ago. It is still timely so I thought I’d share it again. Trauma begets trauma, and personal trauma begets cultural trauma. Just look at the current political, social and environmental situations. That people can treat each other and the Earth as we do speaks to the underlying generational trauma that fuels such behaviors. It is extremely important that we heal ourselves and connect to the wisdom of our ancestors so we can individually and collectively change our stories and heal our behavior.
Perhaps the story below resonates for you? “I’ve been in the process of healing family lineage trauma for many years now, starting with my own healing of trauma and addictions. Many of my clients are experiencing a similar process. Trauma affects our brain functioning and our ability to have a strong core from which to experience life. And most importantly trauma cuts us off from the wisdom of that could have been passed down through the generations. Personally, I have to look back ten generations to find the root of much of my family’s trauma. I can’t learn directly from my wise ancestors previous to that since none of them are alive now. Still the wisdom of our ancestors is hidden in our genetic code if we clear the trauma enough for it to come forward.
Here is story about my experience with the rose campion plant to illustrate how family and cultural trauma can show up even in simple things like gardening: When I tend the gardens here at Tree Frog Farm, I always talk with the fairies and give notice to the plants that are in the wrong place (weeds) before pulling them. I do this because I want to be respectful of all life. One day I noticed some rose campion plants that were smothering a miniature hot tamale rose, but didn’t have a chance to do any weeding for over a week. Then in a fit of frustration and anger, I yanked out the rose campion plants and threw them on the ground. Even as I was doing it, I felt how wrong this was, but couldn’t stop.
For 3 days, I walked by the campion plants, slowly dying on the grass. Never did I apologize or move them. Finally something shifted. I sat with them, apologized for my abusive behavior and moved them to the compost pile to return them to the Mother Earth. During this process I began to realize the correlation of my behavior toward the rose campions and the alcoholism and abuse in my English/Irish ancestral lineage and immediate family. Not surprising, when the flower essence of rose campion was made a couple of weeks later – from healthy and strong plants in another part of the garden – the signature came through as healing family lineage patterns of victim, enabler, perpetrator roles so we can access the multi-generational wisdom of our ancestors.”
Rose Campion and Bloodroot Flower Essences are both key essences in this multi-generational healing process. Rose Campion is in the Brain Blend and is complementary to the DuRen blend. Bloodroot is in the DuRen Blend and is complementary to the Brain Blend. I can attest to this from personal experience. Brain was on special in the last newsletter for learning quickly and preparing for exams. This time I want to highlight healing the effects of trauma on the brain. So very important!
Engage healing for yourself and your family lineage.
As each of us does this, our culture will change to be more respectful and caring for all people, our Mother Earth and all of her children.
Bloodroot Flower Essence
Bloodroot Flower Essence works through your energy fields and through the etheric body blueprint that expresses through your DNA to change genetic codes that hinder the embodiment of your full potential. Use Bloodroot Flower Essence to facilitate transformation of genetic tendencies such as alcoholism, blood sugar imbalances, autoimmune disorders, depression, brain chemistry imbalances and heart problems. It also helps to transform genetic attitudes such as ingrained fear, hopelessness, mistrust, deep anger and separation from the Earth. When you are ready to step out of the inhibiting beliefs of your ancestors and embrace the potential all of us have as humans, bloodroot will assist your journey to full health.
As Bloodroot Flower Essences says of itself:
I AM the embodiment of my full potential this lifetime.

Rose Campion Flower Essence
Rose Campion Flower Essence shifts lineage patterns of playing the victim, enabler and perpetrator roles on the personal, family, tribal, ethnic and racial levels. Heals the multi-generational wounds and opens access to wisdom of the ancestors. Use Rose Campion Flower Essence when you are ready to leave this pattern or are in the process of clearing abuses from your family constellation. Also clears racial and ethnic lineage patterns. For example, the alcoholism and related behaviors in some Irish and Native American lineages.

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, 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.

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 encourages you to have the “spine” to engage life from your authentic self.
