Transform Your Self Image
This was my 18th season making flower essences. When I started in 2000, I thought I’d make a few flower essences to complement the essences that I was using from other companies to make custom dosage bottles for my clients.
About 4 years later it occurred to me that it would best to check my essences first, then add essences as needed from other companies. I knew my essences from the ground up, exactly how they were made and what they did from personal experience. We also had a fledgling website. My image was changing from an energy healer who made essences to a flower essence producer who was also an energy healer. Now we have a thriving flower essence business, with employees and several lines of products. (Chakra essence blends are in the works. Stay tuned!!) In addition to meeting with clients, I also teach people how to become flower essence practitioners. How did all of this happen? It seems my life is a constant process of letting go of who I think I am and what I think the business will be. Here is my take away: When we don’t let go of old self-images and embrace change, we become stagnant. We have to let go so we can transform.
My constant allies are Transform Ease and Echinacea. And when I feel stuck during a deep process of letting go, Skunk Cabbage and Large Intestine Organ Blend are wonderful friends. Echinacea is in both blends. Skunk Cabbage is only in the Large Intestine Blend and is a complement to Transform Ease. All of these are on special from mid-October to mid-November. I took the photo spring of this year while making the skunk cabbage flower essence. This was the first time the muck was so deep that I had to put boards under the crystals so they didn’t sink down into the mud and disappear.
Fall is a good time to let go of what no longer serves you. Open yourself to the possibility of who you are becoming.
Skunk Cabbage Flower
Essence Skunk Cabbage flower essence encourages you to delight in being in a physical body on Earth. It impulses you to dig deep into the emotional and psychological muck creating stagnant constipated energy that blocks your ability to live life to the fullest. When you feel stuck or stagnant in your life and personal growth process, Skunk Cabbage Flower Essence will give you the “kick in the pants” to get moving again. It works through the sacral chakra and large intestine to release constipated physical, emotional or psychological energy and to aid healing of deep skin issues. If what is no longer nourishing or useful cannot be excreted through the large intestine, it may turn toxic or try to be excreted through the skin.
As Skunk Cabbage Flower Essence says of itself:
I AM the transformation of stagnant life force into bright sunshine.

Echinacea Flower Essence
Echinacea Flower Essence supports you in transitioning to new ways of being as you interface with your daily world. When your self-image is beginning to change, but you haven’t completely become your “new” self, it breaks up whatever is holding you back. Echinacea Flower Essence slows down your reaction time to the changes making them more digestible and absorbable. This in turn makes your progress more visible. When you don’t release old images of yourself, they become stagnant and weaken your immune system. Echinacea Flower Essence stimulates letting go of these old self-images, making it more likely that you will remain healthy and strong during this transition time.
As Echinacea Flower Essence says of itself:
I AM melting away of old self-images to reveal the wealth that is your true Self.

Metal Element (Air): Fall
Large Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Essence Blend
The season of the metal element is fall and the colors are white/grey. The yang meridian of the metal element is large intestine. It is most active from 5am to 7am. The job of the large intestine is final sorting and elimination of what is no longer useful on any level – physical body, emotions or attitudes.
Symptoms: Use Large Intestine Organ Energy Essence Blend when you experience constipation or diarrhea, bloating, colon or skin cancer, TMJ, stiff or spine, carpal tunnel syndrome, eczema, psoriasis or chronic rashes. Symptoms of large intestine imbalance include holding onto old stuff, stagnation, feeling guilt or regret, thinking you or situations are never good enough. People with large intestine imbalance are often stoic about loss or hardship, rigid, up tight or perfectionists.
Action: The Large Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical large intestines and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to them. It supports the large intestine in its job of the final sorting and elimination of what isn’t useful. It activates letting of what is no longer useful on any level in your life – attitudes like not good enough, emotions like old grief or guilt, an old self image or relationships that do not honor your worth. Unblocks stagnation and rigidity allowing flexibility, movement and change.

Transform Ease Essence Blend
Transform Ease Essence Blend helps to shift emotional states related to metabolic imbalances – like anger and worry – to more balanced states of calm and ease with daily functioning. It facilitates transformational life processes – such as rapid spiritual growth, healing deep life learning situations, significant career changes, starting or ending a relationship, pregnancy or peri-menopause.
Transform Ease is also a wonderful ally as our bodies adjust to Earth tectonic plate and energy grid shifts, electromagnetic shifts accompanying solar flares, and other solar system wide changes due to higher frequency upgrades. As you go through transformational changes, your body metabolizes differently and your ways of feeling, thinking, speaking, moving and being in the world change. You may experience flu-like symptoms, a type of spiritual flu – temperature swings, sweats, wired and tired, exhaustion, moodiness, headaches, dizziness, achiness, or a sense of general body stress. Transform Ease assists you to move through and integrate these spiritual, energetic, emotional, hormonal, mental and physical body changes with ease.
