Wrap Yourself In Autumn
At this time of year I feel a sense of joy at the harvest of abundant food from the garden, and a tinge of loss to see the daylight waning. Leaves begin to turn color and some let go. At moments I fell overwhelmed and frayed trying to keep up with the end of summer tasks: garden vegetable harvests and preparing for storage, making the final essences, collecting the last shiso harvests. At the same time my body metabolism is changing toward fall and warmer clothes come out of summer storage. Blankets rest on the couch ready for cool evening snuggles. Grandmother Big Leaf Maple Tree Essence embodies this time of year, the sense of being wrapped in comfort. It is the featured essence for mid-August to mid-September and is a key essence in the Spleen and Stomach Organ Energy Meridian Blends. These Earth element systems relate to changing seasons, typically the transition between summer and fall, Autumn.
Grandmother Big Leaf Maple Tree Essence
The big leaf maple ranges in moist soils from Alaska to the southern California mountains. It is the largest species of maple in the Puget Sound region of Washington State. The Maple where this essence was made arches over 100 feet tall, and is easily 80 feet wide. It wears a shaggy green coat of moss, lichen, and ferns. Leaves fan out to 15 inches wide, the size of a giant’s hand! In spring, honeybees and butterflies favor the fragrant yellow flowers that sway in the breeze on long racemes, and black-tailed deer nibble on fresh leaves, twigs, and saplings. In fall, squirrels and birds including finches and grosbeaks eat the seeds. Where it leans over beaches and streams, big leaf maples make vital shade for developing fish. Big leaf maples also provide a nurturing, protected environment for understory bushes like snowberry, and osoberry and for young trees like western red cedars to grow.
On the flower essence level, Grandmother Big Leaf Maple Tree Essence assists you to relax and reconnect to feelings of safety and serenity, like a child that is being held and nurtured by a loving grandmother. This essence is supportive when you feel raw, jarred by life experiences, vulnerable, unsafe, unable to settle for fear of something happening to you or when the demands of life seem like too much to handle. Grandmother Big Leaf Maple Tree is also helpful when you are experiencing rapid spiritual growth that is unsettling to you physically and emotionally.
Grandmother Big Leaf Maple Tree Essence is unique. The universal Spirit (Plant Spirit or Deva) of big leaf maple tree and the spirit of the individual tree (dryad or faun) both imbued their frequencies into the essence. In my experience, it is very unusual for a tree spirit to directly become a part of an essence. This Maple tree is very old. The wise and gentle spirit that inhabits this tree brings the energy of “Grandmother” to this essence.
I AM nurturing, peace and safety
surrounding you with loving grandmotherly arms.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
