Melting Into Spring
The snow is melting! We haven’t had as much snow and below freezing temperatures as some part of the US, but we’ve had a lot for here. Snow is nature’s fertilizer. I’ve heard this from several sources. Snow contains nitrogen, sulphur and other trace minerals in a slower release form than rain.
In the Chinese Five Element perspective of health, water feeds wood. The snows and rains of winter nourish the new growth of plants in spring. Yet how do the plants absorb the water? Probably a little through evergreen leaves or needles, but mostly through their roots in the earth. The Earth Element governs the transitions between seasons. As we can see in this time between winter and spring, it is vital for the earth to receive water and nutrients for the plants to uptake for new growth.
Goat’s Beard Flower Essence
Goat’s Beard is a North American native that grows on the edges of forests, streams and roadsides usually at low to middle elevations. Long strands of tiny flowers inspired the name goat’s beard and its other common name, spaghetti flower. In the U.S. Pacific Northwest various indigenous peoples made medicines from goat’s beard for a wide range of symptoms including coughs, colds and sore throats, stomach aliments, swelling, and smallpox.
On the flower essence level, Goat’s Beard Flower Essence grounds you deeply into your body in a relaxed, openhearted, easeful way. It helps you to feel sure-footed, confident, inquisitive and calm as you step into the fullness of your life.
I AM an open-hearted, grounded, relaxed human animal.

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 grounded 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 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 Organ Energy Meridian 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 Blend
The stomach organ energy system is the yang to the spleen’s yin. The stomach system digests food and experiences, provides nourishment, a sense of stability, center and place on Earth. Symptoms of stomach system out of balance include digestive issues, sinus problems, headaches in the forehead, TMJ, and surface skin issues like minor rashes. Unbalanced stomach system fuels worry, anxiety, unhealthy relationships and lack of safety.
The Stomach Organ Energy Meridian 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 helps resolve digestive issues, encourages self-nourishment and gracefully receiving abundance. Structurally it supports strong, flexible muscles. Emotionally, the Stomach OEM Blend addresses worry, anxiety, feeling unsafe and ungrounded. 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.
