It’s been almost one year since our beloved elder pets , Smokey and Tessy, passed away. I’ve been thinking of them more lately. They were a huge part of John’s and my life for many years and we still miss them. Fear can be a part of grief, and there were days when I was caught in fear – fearing loss, fearing if I’d be able to move through the experience of losing both of them so close together. I find it interesting that they both died in fall, the season of grief and sorrow. They were always such incredible teachers for me, and continued in that role through their death processes. On the Day of the Dead, I will honor them as my deceased family members.
Fall is also the season to stand tall, expand your chest, and breathe in deeply as you experience your unique self. Fall is a time to joyfully share your brilliance, and your authentic self with others. As the daylight decreases, let your inner light shine brightly – whether that is in school, work, relationships, creative endeavors, or simply while enjoying your own company.
Fall is related to the Lung and Large Intestine systems. Oceanspray and Wild Gooseberry Flower Essences are key essences in both blends. They are all on special through October.
Oceanspray Flower Essence
Oceanspray is a native plant of the Pacific Northwest that grows on dry to moist open sites mostly at low to middle elevations and provides cover for small animals and birds. It is commonly called ironwood and was used by indigenous peoples for digging sticks, arrows, hooks, needles and nails. Also, they drank an infusion of the brown fruiting clusters for measles and chickenpox.
On the flower essence level, Oceanspray allows old grief, sorrow and heartache to surface and be released. It opens you to feel the compassion and protection of your Angels and Guides during the process of healing. And Oceanspray Flower Essence encourages living in your own jubilant Presence, which brings a genuine sense of calm and tranquility.
As Oceanspray flower essence says of itself:
I AM connection to your lighthearted,
jubilant Presence during times of grief.

Wild Gooseberry Flower Essence
Wild Gooseberry is a US Pacific NW native deciduous perennial shrub that grows 3-8 feet tall and has thorns at the leaf nodes. It is also know as gummy gooseberry. It grows best in moist to dry forest edges with partial shade. Maroon and white fuchsia-like flowers provide a valuable food source for hummingbirds. Gooseberries are edible for humans and wildlife.
On the essence level, Wild Gooseberry helps you stay open and engaged while facing fear. This could be a current situation or old fear that is locked into your body/being. Intensity can propel you forward; however, it’s common instead to contract around the intensity of fear. Wild Gooseberry Essence helps you stay open to what feels intense and experience that new growth, new life can arise from the compost of fear. It instills confidence to participate in new opportunities.
As Wild Gooseberry flower essence says of itself:
I AM transforming fear into engaging life!

Metal Element (Air): Fall
Metal is forged from rocks and stones, the minerals of the Earth. As rocks/metals form the structure and strength of mountains, riverbanks, and skyscrapers so does the metal element rule structure and strength on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels for humans. As metal wire forms the basis of telecommunications, so do the metal systems in the body rule the peripheral nervous system and communication between bodily systems. As air, these organ systems breathe in spiritual energies and oxygen through the lungs and skin to sustain the flow of operations in the body. Metal (air) rules excretion from the body – carbon dioxide through the lungs, waste through the large intestine and skin. The season of the metal (air) element is fall and the colors are white/grey.
Lung Organ Energy Meridian Essence Blend
The lung organ energy system (lung system) is the yin to the large intestine’s yang. It is the organ most connected to the spiritual energies accessed through breathing, prana. Its focus is to rhythmically breath in and out, to oxygenate the body and release carbon dioxide, to support you during low emotional moments and inspire you to fully engage life. The lung meridian is most active from 3am to 5am.
Symptoms: Use Lung Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you frequently experience shallow breathing, lung congestion, pneumonia, bronchitis, asthma or colds. Sadness, grief, loss, rejection, abandonment, depression, longing and sense of emptiness are emotional symptoms of Lung imbalance that may lead structurally to a contracted, caved-in chest. A person with Lung system imbalance often has difficulty breathing in the energy of life – prana – and exhaling to fully engage life.
Action: The Lung OEM Blend works through the energy circuits that surround the physical lungs and the meridian that feeds spiritual energy to them. This blend aligns you with the rhythmic order of life, breath. It supports flow through the peripheral nervous system as you engage the ebb and flow of life and loss with ease. Structurally, it encourages your chest to expand as, emotionally, you experience acceptance for your unique self. You begin to recognize your brilliance, your self worth and to share your true self with joy.

Large Intestine Organ Energy Meridian Blend
The large intestine organ energy system (large intestine system) is the yang to the lung’s yin. The symptoms listed below are the embodied expression of grief, loss, guilt, emotional and mental stagnation, or inability to flow with life. The meridian is most active from 5am to 7am.
Symptoms: Use Large Intestine Organ Energy Meridian (OEM) Essence Blend when you experience constipation or diarrhea, bloating, colon or skin cancer, TMJ, stiff neck 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.
Actions: The Large Intestine OEM 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. The Large Intestine OEM Blend unblocks stagnation and rigidity allowing flexibility, movement and change.
