I’m just beginning to realize how much armor I’ve had over my heart and upper body from an early age. It can be quite challenging to be open-hearted in the modern world. There are so many impressions – like driving on a busy freeway, being at a shopping mall or simply walking on a downtown street. I sometimes have difficulty sorting what to take in. This sense of sensory overload causes me to contract.
I also protect my heart from the many feelings that often arise during interactions with others, or when I hear news like the children of immigrants being ripped away from their parents. How do I sort and make sense of these feelings and emotions? Confusion and contraction show up in my structure – shoulders up and tight, an energetic hardness across my chest and upper back. Otherwise I feel too vulnerable.
I’ve made much progress in my 35 years of deep healing work. Many layers of armor have peeled off. Still some remain. Continuing to “peel the onion.” The good news is…the more I release the armor while still feeling protected, the more I can enjoy life! How about you? Are you peeling the onion of armor from over your heart, too? My best allies for disamoring my heart while still feeling protected are Small Intestine Organ Blend and Golden Armor Aromatherapy and Flower Essence Mister. Golden Celebration Rose, Spirea and Twinflower are key essences in both blends. All of these will be on special through mid-July.
Spirea plants are in bloom now. This photo is of the spirea that grows on the west edge of Tree Frog Farm.
Relax the bind of armor around your heart and let your feelings flow. It may be a bit uncomfortable, but it is so worth it.

Small Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Blend
The small intestine is the body’s alchemist. As one of the heart protectors, its job is sorting on all levels what is useful from what is useless, then absorbing and transforming the useful for your continued health. On the physical level, it governs sorting and assimilation of food.
Emotionally it sorts for the heart, helping you to understand experiences and to determine healthy appropriate relationships and boundaries. Mentally it sorts ideas and thoughts to help you make clear choices.
The meridian is most active from 1pm to 3pm. Its season is summer and its element is fire. The Small Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical small intestine and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to it.
This blend supports the healthy functioning of the small intestine as it sorts and transforms food, feelings and ideas into useful ingredients for the body/mind. Structurally, it encourages dissolving armoring in the arms, shoulders neck and jaw, leading to less constriction in these areas.
Emotionally, it supports you to seek relationships that are supportive and nurturing to your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Mentally, Small Intestine Organ Blend helps you to sort information to make better-informed choices. A healthy small intestine system encourages openhearted joy and clear respectful communication.

Newford Stories: Crow Girls. By Charles de Lint
Welcome to Charles de Lint’s city of Newford, where magic intertwines with daily life. Zia and Maida are forever friends, literally forever. They are of the original peoples who were both animal and human. These delightfully mischievous crow girls will keep you laughing at their antics while pondering their ancient wisdom. My favorite is “A Crow Girls’ Christmas” A fun summer read!
PS I decided to suggest this book because a pair of ravens have a nest behind our house. The raven boys and their parents create quite the ruckus! The way they bounce from tree to tree around this land and talk incessantly during the day makes me think of them as magical protectors or pranksters!
