We are

We are as brave as our reflection
Weather its in a mirror or the eyes of those we love.
Ease in my body like a cobra
Ease in life like a breeze
Safety in my home and environment
like the locust singing
In the summer months of abundance
Do i live in fear or peace?
Am i a bridge between worlds or the person who burns them?
Am i rooted in this plane of exsistence?
Walking the plank sideways glancing.
find your stabalizers mounting preoccupations
A guest on the matrix extending limbs
Do i trust the process?
Can i surrender to the powers that be?
Down like a dog or rise up like the pheonix?! Gathering momentum in this revolution this infrastructure is crashing.
We are being restructured.
This matrix only works for the 1%
its time to abandon it.
Centered. Calm warrior
In the muddle of chaos
Holding light and space.
Gathering energies and creating
Abundance forward fold
Right to be here and now not taken anything for granted.
I sit in the quiet of the house
gotten a lifetime of news in my brain.
meditation comes with
the first woken breath of a new day
The cirst woke breath of a life.
Especially now where
we are living in a surreal
Made to stop and gather what is important.
Do we have a right to be here? We have a right to not question our beautifully complex life ever again.

I breathe/I feel
so alive
My senses alert to
Each and every cell
A synergy of all my parts makes me
Unique/ whole
Dividing and multiplying
I am the mother of creation
Alive/and breathing
Forever in nature
I assume this position
The one control I maintain in this world
I breathe/
I dance
Feeling my interconnectedness with all living things
I watch the plants and the tree’s responding
To my energy
Dancing in unison the sound of the leaves
Make me come undone
Feeling free
From the mundane
Cooking and cleaning
I can be one with the divine
Source of my inspiration
I am free of this
The ocean waves in anticipation
Surrendering to the rise and fall of the moon
I feel the earth breathe in each and every
Cell saturated in her womb

Sacred holistic arts~*survival

  This is the word that keeps playing through my head this morning as I attempt to figure out the best way to go about doing it in the up coming months before festival season. 

Survival is more than just trying to live in this world or being successful or even healthy how about being happy? Let others figure out their own source of contentment so you can work on yours. Yes parents I am talking to you too. Especially those parents of teens. Tomorrow I am sending my 15 year old across the United States from ma to California at his request. You never know what the right answer for someone else is so I am respecting his decision and hoping that he can heal whatever wounds he has endured and make a happy well adjusted life for himself under his fathers guidance  .point being we all have dis-ease and disorders name it, claim it and find a way to get over it. That’s more than surviving that’s living the life you love 


There is a vague emptiness

That surrounds my chaos

Surrealism that is misguided

As this life lived in reverence

Cast mundane aside

For a moon dance 

Saturating our cells

In starlight from where we came filling that void

To help us endure reality

Suggestions that marginalized 

The magnitude of being

A better human spirit.

Dancing in the dirt of reality

Gleaning lessons of a souls journey.

I push through obstacles

Giving back what’s not mine

Letting others be responsible for their own happiness and substandard choices

In their existence

Looking for a lifetime 

Beyond these fleeting moments of love to share mind body and soul 

Trashy existence 

Music for this topic ( scale down and synchronicity by rising Appalachian )

In one week I have quite the accomplishment!!!! One small bag of trash for four people! The rest is recycled and composted. We compost every thing paper, food pottery.  What can you do to keep your elimination to a small one bag in the land fill a week or even less? I reuse all the bags I can to pack snacks, make art and buy stuff with less packaging. It is hard with kids tho. If you can beat me and my Bag I am working on 9 days I’ll send you a piece of original art …. Send me proof a picture and your address…🤔🤗👏🏿🙌🏻👌🏼🗑we can save our world one space at a time. 

Art rampages


My hands are always busy. This week I continued working on my mobile. Well it’s not meant for me! I did use some recycled copper I came across at the dump!! Whenever I can I do. I use to buy copper from the recycling center but OSHA  had to go and make some law that says I can’t buy it from there!!! Anyways I had this idea that I needed to add one more piece to complete it and hung it. My son timeless and I went out to work on the teepee and have a fire and I came across this half wrapped gorgeous crystal that had been abandoned in the yard by a kid and time found a piece of telascope glass it was the perfect. Size for a combo! Now the double mobile is done. $250 total. After years of making this stuff I do know that some people can’t afford the whole price and want to buy just a piece of amazingness so each of the dangles is for sale too. I’ll have to figure out a way for me to list it on etsy! But I do hope it all sells as one piece since it is a divinely guided rustic eye candy that can’t be rushed process.   

 Adult coloring book 

Im going to sell some art for a coloring book probably with poetry too I haven’t decided what the best way to publish it will be but I wan sharing some pics of the art you ( my readers) are welcome to download and color! Ha arn’t you glad you clicked on my link today;) 

    Magic cloak is still in the making inch by inch row by row I’m gonna make this lavender cape glow. I hope that it will become luminous in the black light making pics pop we shall see. 


I have to admit I am broke so with two baby showers coming up I crotched some hats. I hope they love them soft and fuzzy. I can’t follow a pattern but I can crotchet almost anything to shape. 


 that’s about it for now thanks for reading . Behind me is the beautiful anja art work. You can find her under Jenna odhner



So doing this newsletter from my phone or old computer is a whole days process. It takes a a whole day to upload and it still isn’t up loaded!!! Lol.

Love and light in all your creations

News Sacred holistic arts style…. 

As time rolls on into the thick of winter I am left to discover the deepest recesses of my creativity.

     I am always in awe of our capabilities in the darkest of days while struggling to bring kids from here to there and where ever they need to go. instead of rampage and I often bring my arts or my crafts with me so I’m always mobile and I’m always busy and I’m always doing something. I often get asked what I’m up too and what I’m working on and what’s going on in my life so I think it’s time to start sharing because most of the time I’ve got my hands in to 50 things at once and most of those are pretty amazing… I will apologize as I am working by phone so I can stay mobile and work while I wait. 


  Last week I’ve had to deal with the passing of the really good friend, Jeff martell who is beyond amazing he lived his life to the fullest as an incredible musician. He wrote a song about me which will always play on my stereo as I recount all of our adventures. it seems that no matter how much time passes if you love somebody and then they are gone you never get to pick up where you left off hug, share moments and smiles. After I came off tour and went back to school I didn’t know how to live the life I loved without the hard core drugs that had sustained me. He taught me how to live for the music. He believed in me as a poet and we shared our work.  


 So in all this grief I put my mind to work and busy my hands  and create. That’s what I do that’s who I am;)  though I did get screwed…. Literally.. Lol I was trying to unscrew a screw in my sewing machine and put a screw driver right through my hand! Pierced it!!! Ugh but my daughter Zoe helped me pull it out!! It didn’t even bleed that much! How lucky from right in between my knuckles in the meat to the web it could have been worse.. She is going to be a dr.  And I am all better, soar but better. I can’t cry too much what would happen if there was a zombie apocalypse or something? I would have to  be tough

      Here are the divine offerings.. I promise no blood just sweat and teArs and some deep sacred connection



you can find this stuff at sacred holistic arts on etsy or check out my Facebook page with the same name 

 During the week I’ve been working with a homeschooler.  I have him choose a topic and then we go for it. we create our lessons around whatever it is that he wants to learn. last week it was reflections the first week that we started it was all about the ocean. this week we are in outerspace talking about The universe, the stars and the planets. life is good so far we’ve created two books that are pretty amazing … 

  So all this and so much more . Love and light in all you create

Keeping evolutional fires burning/38/Quantum spirituality

Keeping evolution fires burning

This is the end!!!!!!
The end of recognizance
to others undeserving.
Time to inspire lead and initiate greatness.
True bonds without bondage
love without obligation or angst.
This is the time to settle in after a long fight
and relax,
Its time to let me mind be free
from activity,
noise transmission
from city scape to country.
We move letting our vibration
settle down from transition
becoming in tuned into nature.
Quiet as the snow starts to fall
blocking out sounds that escape.
sound scape’s of nature
becoming in tune with the mountains
after fall.
Mountains that ask to be climbed and explored.
Releasing aggression and toxicity
Releasing anxiety.
Letting it compost back to the earth
serving purpose for essential survival.
But not us, not here not now.
She winds out of control
spewing negative emotion that she has absorbed from
her ecosystem releasing all her venom on me.
Everyone releases their venom on me
targeted and confuse a chain reaction begins.
It’s time to move.
it’s time to let go
of all that we hold onto
all that serves no purpose anymore.
Dragging chaos and calamity through
the frozen river to be eaten by
bottom feeders.
I am done
feeding pain
feeding suffering
it is time to heal
it is time to be influential in healing
to set visions a float in the atmosphere
letting them rest in the minds of those we come in contact with
letting them wake that mordent fire
that has been  dormant and smoldering for too long
let it burn
let it rise
let the smoke and prayers
be carried to the sky
to the gods and goddess waiting their arrival
waiting for change
waiting for us to recognize that things can be different
that our cognitive abilities can handle
our gifts that we can evolve.
Nothing between

Quantum poetry/Soul love saga/39

My Quantum  poetry is like

that moment you get to a lake

after a hot day.

The traffic was rediculous,

You worked outside all day

You really wanted a drink,

to kick your shoes off and do nothing all night.

Except listen to your waterfalls and crickets around a fire.

Here at the lake…

Water sparkles beckoning me to the center.

My quantum poetry is like

a million thoughts in that one moment

summing up the completion of a lifetime

this and last; good and bad energy and raising vibes.

My quantum poetry is like that water

still and cool to the touch as I paddle to the center.

Tree’s and mountains completely surrounding me

as I balance and do yoga totally present in the moment.

focused on everything to balance

as the sun penetrates my skin.

My Quantum poetry is like the breath.

As I slowly move through all the poses

in my practice.

I am keenly aware

of my inhalation keeping my center.

Gravity is the matrix

of energy I regulate

knowing eventually

one pose is going to send me over the edge.

Totally saturated in the middle of the lake,

in the middle of Giai’s womb.

My quantum poetry is like my quantum spirituality

educated and ravious in finding balance.

Illuminating the darkness

covering my soul like a patchwork quilt

picking patches of what feels good

to keep my warm

at night

giving me something I can feel.

Meditating as I sew it all together

knotting each wish as

we are stardust.

we are our own shooting stars

as our conciousness is fleeting

Magik/ Quantum Spirituality Poetic uprising gypsy montage

I am so close to the end of this project. I can almost see the light.

When I first began it started with a simple idea. Ohh you want me to put together a book? I can do that. And so it was….

Than I thought mmmm, wouldn’t it be cool if I turned it all into video’s and had a soundtrack for the whole thing so I can make it interactive like the first one but more. ….

oh but I don’t really want people to hear me, just my words.

I want people who have never had any expierience with poetry to be a part of it and fully emersed before they realize…

Anyway piece by piece this has formed into a way of life over the past year; Collecting art, artists, and video’s.

For better or worse I have been able to really rage these ideas.

I am so blessed to have found friends that I am so absolutely inspired by.

As I make the video’s that will one day be an interactive book but now hang out on youtube I get stuck in translation.

Then I remember something amazing that someone posted days, weeks or even years later and I have been blessed with so much cooperation with this project. and the ability to make it happen.

I have learned so much and continue on a daily basis making things work. I decided I have to because noone else can do it for me. nor would they even know where to begin…

IF only all this would lead to financial stability! For now tho I am totally in awe of where this is going and I couldn’t have planned this if I tried.But know that I know where it is going…. Watch out because I am on a mission:)

I want to share everything that I have been gifted with…

Here is my song for today let me know what you think of it

ragged and worn/ soul love saga/38

puzzle peices

Little imperfect pieces of the puzzle rAgged and worn

Tossed and turned until it fits just right engaged and rigid
Racing to make sense of reason running  rhythmic
  firing at synapses  in my brain pulsing with enlightenment
engaging neurons
composing lyrics that drift on the escapades of my souls journey
A dance for which we can all partake
Music which sings in decibel that heals
my heart
       my mind and embodies me and my family
Singing as loudly as my voice will carry
Singing as loudly as I can
                                to heal my heart and sew my wounds
With threads full of magik knotted
in accomplishments
knotted in forbearance
that only survival can bear witness to this cross
Like a road diverged in complexity
Fires that ravage sanctuary
Teaching us that the only thing that matters is our beings
Our bodies held sacred
in the arms of the community we have given so much too
So much sacrifice
In return we are given what we need

wordporn I love you/38/soul love saga


dreaming with  mizpah intent

I found you there…

our bond connected through time and space

connected through life and death

feelings of retrouvailles

enveloped my body

I dance with abandonment

retrouvailles your all mine for a day

You grab me

because I wasn’t expecting you to be standing there

I looked at your face the joy emanated from my body

as you had grown and I had changed

reunited for this moment in time

everything else stopped

it was just us again after time passed

I saw your face though your hair had changed

and couldn’t stop hugging you

like I had mastered time

you were there with me

my air sucked back into my lungs

alexithymia takes over

I just can’t describe my insides

my words don’t work

I grab my pen

scripturient takes over

Book Description

Publication Date: November 9, 2013
soul love saga is a large collection of poems and short stories that all interconnect. Some are fiction others are non fiction. I tell my stories of where I have been and I tell others stories that have remained unforgettable or those that need to be immortalized. It is a story of growth and learning to thrive through the hardest of obstacles. There are lots of original art and photo’s that adorn each page. In Ibook format I decided to give pieces of what you can expect when soul love saga is finished and published. ( I am still looking for a publisher 🙂 My poetry stands alone I have been influenced by Bukowski as much as Emily and frost. You can check out more of my work at crowningshield@wordpress.com or if a piece really speaks to you I would love to talk back sacredholisticarts@gmail.com I have kept the more personal and explicit stories for when my whole series is published… thank you for reading. Namaste’ Michelle
