No labels sprawled arcoss my chest

 

ancient symbols lay over my heart

finding sacred in the dirt and decay

finding peace on others heroin highway

through the smoke and mirrors

pain and galore watching the

nightmares of the ones you love

while you smell like sweet surrender

in this apocalyptic nation

and your friends and family go missing

There is nothing left to say or do

there is only so much light

you can spread on this situation

only so much love can be givin

* white lilly tincture and poem/ 36/soul love saga

ch 5                    I stayed in a cute little cabin on a  lake with my family. Five miles of connected lakes left many places for us to explore on our kayaks. We would take the boats in every direction. I have been on a special hunt for white Lilly. Not only is it gorgeous and make beautiful pictures but it is really a magical all powerful healing medicine. The smell of the flower is sweet and is as  endearing as the sacred geometry of the petals. The white water lily is traditional Native American medicine and can often be found as part of  Chinese medicine as well.’ The dried root and rhizome of the white water-lily have been used to treat gastrointestinal, genital, and bronchial conditions when given orally. Externally, the leaves and roots have been made into ointments and other topical mixtures to be used to treat inflammation and lesions. The white water lily also has antibiotic and astringent properties.'(Amanda Bussen)

Collecting the water Lily rhizome is a challenge I pulled my kayak into a moose path. Through the muck and lily’s we paddled in hopes of seeing a moose to no avail. The summer sun setting and the dragon flies of every color fly past us. My daughter Zoe and I were in the same boat rowing in unison. Saving the little dragons who had fallen to their death. When out in the middle of the lake We heard a water drop kind of a noise I turned and looked into the eyes of a very dark head as it slowly decended into the water. I don’t know what it was but we believed it was a mermaid. We both saw it and it never came up anywhere else.

We continued our search for viable water lily and came into the shallows where I could reach down and grabed the roots known as rhizomes. I had been on a mission to find water lily for me to use in my healing medicine since I heard about from my teacher Chris Marano from Clearpath Herbals, one of the most energetically amazing teachers I have ever met. He broke off a piece and gave us some to chew on. the lily root puckered my mouth drawing  all of the moisture from it in a wild way. He told us it could be used as an astringent and also good for tightening the uterus.  It is very slimy but is like a stick I pull out a few feet. Take it back to the cabin and wash and peel… I cut the root up and put it into a clean jar filling it up. I take vodka or vinegar and cover the roots. Letting it set for six weeks. From there be careful to get the right lily using and identification guide because there are poisonous ones.  Here is more info I was able to glean….

“Water Lily for Healing

The leaves of Nuphar polysepala have been traditionally used to stop bleeding and a poultice may be made from the roots to help relieve the swelling of wounds.
The root of Nuphar polysepala may also be used for inflammation. A poultice may be used or a decoction may be used as a gargle for mouth inflammation and sore throats.
Nymphaea nouchali is used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat indigestion. It is called Ambal.

The scent of a water lily is said to have general healing properties.

Water Lily Magick

Water lily resonates with the energy of the moon and the water element.

The flowers and stems of any water lily can be used in spells designed to reduce sexual cravings.

Either Nymphaea lotus or Nymphaea caerulea (or both) may have been used by priests to encourage trance states and by party goers as a mildly hallucinogenic aphrodisiac. The petals would have been steeped in wine.

The petals of Nymphaea alba were steeped in wine to produce a sedative or an aphrodisiac while the stems and roots were said to have an anaphrodisiac affect.

Water Lily Symbolism
In general, water lilies are associated with rebirth and optimism as they return to waterways after the rains, even if they dried up the previous season. The water lily also symbolizes fertility, sexuality and creation.

White water lilies symbolize peace, purity, pleasure and spiritual enlightenment. In ancient Greece, white water lilies symbolized modesty.” (http://www.witchipedia.com)

                    I sipped my tincture

 under the light of a full moon

surrounded by a rainbow

white lilly

collected from a journey up north

where I had to row

my boat through

the thick bog following the moose trails

a mermaid goddess of the Pearl

in the lakes of Ebomee

watched as we

gathered her rhizomes

in the sitting summer sun

A journey unlike any other

 I traveled, boated and collected

cleaned + cut

poured + stirred

=all for the love of the Journey

 all for the intention of healing

health and herbals

Virtual addictions. Seriously could someone enlighten me.

Technology once again got in the way of me having fun. Crowed up the dance floor with people standing there on Facebook in the middle of a raging dance floor with sour puss looks on their faces while I was trying to get my dance on. Not once but many times last night. IF you would rather be on facebook than get off the dance floor. I just don’t understand. Maybe I am just getting old but I would really like to live life while I am here. Don’t get me wrong i pick up my phone while I am waiting in line or bored too. When there is life going on around me I choose not to view it virtually through this narrow scope of a view finder to post about what was happening instead of connecting authentically.There is so much more to life than this framed moment in time.  I spend time with my kids and not spend time posting about spending time with my kids. All around me I see people engaged in their phones instead of enjoying life. People at dinner and half of them are on the phone. Not only are they missing out on authentic connections but they are getting in the way of everyone who is trying to really live.  I like multitasking like anyone but if you eating with a group of people  or your up  in line at the grocery store and you have to pick up your phone for anything but an emergency or your kid you have a problem. IF you are on a dance floor that is raging and you are on Facebook really? In a lecture hall that you are paying for your education and you are scrolling through your social media your wasting your resources. All’s I am saying is put down the phone and enjoy life while you are still living. Enjoy authentic connection while you still have it. Meet people while you can because that person who you missed engaging with could have been the one.  It is time to raise your vibration and interact with this world in a way that will make that possible. There is a time and a place for everything.

Wild womyn/ 38/soul love saga

Twisted notions resembling reality

glare at me from the window

Who I am is in direct defiance of who

I am to become

I calibrate my crazy

tuck away all my insanity

and twisted notions of reality

momentarily

so I can raise these beings into the great beyond

suppressing the wild women in me

So I can ease the monotony of the day

So I can ease the burden of society

I am the master of my realm

The time master of the plans in my house

Loving deeply and compassionately

until all the bells in this kingdom have rung

Book reviewers wanted

Dearest freinds

I am wondering if there is anyone out there  who would be interested in writing a review for my book(s)????? (I can and would send you a copy of either one) I am at that tipping point where I would like these two books to find their wings and fly.  Both are full of unique lyrically  epic poetry and full of art. But I need reviews to help them sell.. I need to let go and send them off to the world so they can inspire a dream or love of life.  Please let me know if you are interested  sacredholisticarts@gmail.com

love and light darlings

Wild flowers poke their green from under the snow ready to grow.

ready to thrive in this desolote winter scene

As if spring will never come the birds and I are ready.

Ready to fufill our dreams. Taste the seeds

taste the nectar that flows into the flowers ready to bloom.

The challange makes us rise. Rise to be free.

The freedom of the sun escaping the clouds escaping winters icy grasp

The freedom of warmth that finds it’s way to warm my naked legs.

My bare skin that shows warms and glows bronzed and burning

The heat yet dicerning

You won’t hear me complain at the suns grace.

Escaping this paradise to render me complete

to shine on my garden

I’ll be careful to tend my wild garden too, strawberries, dandelions and astaria.

Just let that spring sun shine gracefully down

where it hasn’t shown in so long.

divergent/

This divergent time in space

Where what can happen is evolution and what we do is revolution

in this ever expanding world wide concouiousness that spares no soul

Where the ever shining stars are our stability, our gods, our energy.

Shame and guilt have no room in this family.

Bodly going in this direction that only seeks freedom

At all costs…

There is little guarentee that empowerment can raise vibration

that is served with doubt.

 

You have to get on your knee’s and kiss the ground!

Give thanks for the earth Giai is the one who sustains us.

Stretch your hands away from you palms up and be ever so grateful

The air we breath was meant for us.

We exsist only because of this symbiotic relationship

that renders our life valuable

Everything green thrives in our care in our air.

Stretch your arms High above your head to your ascended masters feel the energy

filtered through you into the earth.

give thanks for the lessons this life provides

the answers that flow  and the love that grows with the children

Options and choice.
