Sacred Holistic Arts*~balancing and winter works

 Balance… 

Is finding normalcy in this life even possible? We have all have our preconceived notions of what normal is supposed to be like, but is living it actually what we want? I told my daughter last night that I would love it if she could be happy all the time but that isn’t always possible. Sometimes we have to take life by the moments.  Sometimes you have to just find one thing beautiful and focus on that for awhile and realize that moment is beautiful and eventually they add up.

Sure I would love a house, a husband/wife I could be faithful too a great job and a group of friends I go out with on one scheduled visit a month. Sadly not my life right now and I would have to give up my summer touring around for one or more of the normal things and I am not ready to grow up that much yet. Stability is not over rated and yet I am not ready to settle for just any house or job that might take me away from my art. The key is balance.

Striving for amazingness is great but not if it makes you go crazy!  A little each day just do a little something and eventually it will add up! I am amazed as I begin to publicly share my stuff just how much I do make and as you get to know me and my life it’s a lot of chaos but I make things happen pushing through obstacles.

Patina time this picture right here is of the two arbiters that I made for the mobile’s and now I am oxidizing them so they are that beautiful turquoise color.

Where do we go from here

  •   So in this whole mess we have to find a way to make education work for everyone. We need to find effective solutions for these schools that have no money to deal with the rising problems that they are facing.

I can only speak from my expierience and my educationaexperiences for my self and my children. My kids school situation has been incredibly difficult until we got them the help that they needed. I am not saying that we are on a easy road but learning how to advocate for their needs helps tremendously. I wish each kid came with their own guide book but after years I do have more knowledge and understanding of what works and what doesn’t.

In the school of question all three of my kids went there. My boys went to this calm room and my daughter saw it but never had to go. My oldest went there several times 8 years ago and at the time I didn’t question the professional thinking they had more expierience with these unruly behaviors but questioning him now since this has come up he said he was scared and hit and kicked the door. My younger son said he just used his time to sleep and it didn’t bother him. Effective for one not so for the other. The law states that an adult must be in there. Now let’s have say an adjustment counselor in there helping them to resolve issues, give the child more tools to put into their tool box so when problems arise in the future as they inevitably will they can access this knowledge. This can’t be done by sticking a kid in solitary confinement ! Hello! These kids will grow up and be a part of our community! I think we need to treat them likely and and teach them how to be civilized good world citizens.

I read an article that the advocate put out about Holyoke schools and abuse against special needs students! This is our most fragile growing  sector of our communities. Another recent case of abuse was exposed in Northampton school.

I understand how difficult it is to parent and teach kids with developmental issues. There are too many situations happening that need to be overhauled so we can get back to learning. One comment left said well what about these kids that are coming from abusive homes or poor nutrition or or or. They still deserve education and to feel safe.  And because they may come from abusive poor homes does not mean we can let the schools get away with abusive behavior too. Corporal punishment went away for a reason.

What about an overhaul of the system thT is ineffective and not working? Stop teaching to test and teach for the love of learning! Let’s face it the teachers hate it and so don’t the kids! That could be the cause of rising problems in education!  Trying to fit everyone in a box how about filling those boxes withe dirt and planting seeds and watching them grow?

Leverett schools took my youngest son who had gotten way out of control in Newton street schools and had a host of in resolved educational problems and helped. They were amazing! They got him a Nuero psych, a behavior consultation from a psychiatrist and put into place an I e p that helps him to this day! They taught me how to advocate for him what works well for him. He learns best in a small classroom.

Some parents have said that we don’t know how to parent we don’t beAt the kids… The list goes on. With all the rising environmental toxins and poor education that doesn’t fit our kids unlimited  technology doesn’t help we do look to the professionals to do the right thing.  I guess we are all at a loss if we don’t solve these problems as children grow and become independent adults without having the ability to solve problems. They are looking to self medicate to numb pain and creating more problems in our community.

Tribal Gypsy/39

Writing an insightful song to infiltrate

the minds of humans

& well meaning beings

starting fires in your soul

lighting the darkside

forcing dignity

and mindful habits

Zeroing the production of waste

Minimizing coperate greed.

We all have our ways

of lying to ourselves

and deriving pleasure from pain

Filling our minds with positive vibrations

and the magik of creation

this Tribal Gypsy

dances on the graves

of descended masters kissing the fate of all I encounter

With a universal matrix of energy

I close my eyes

and touch gentally on the spine

 

breathing in stardust

and the energy from the stars, sun, and moon

a three dimensional matrix rises up

connecting the web of life

interwoven and interconnected

to everything that ever was

and everything that ever will be

i raidiate in abundant healing energy

Deep wthin this life vessel

we are everything that we need

to heal a

vibrating paradox

Life force energies grow with

focused cell regenerations

muscle manipulation

healing the core of care

self love

clearing of chakra’s

time to release all

that serves no purpose

and my mood synches with the full moon

silver reflections fall on the earth

as I am given the momentary vision of this

universal conciousness

if only I can be quit enough to listen

to the words whispered on the wind

and echoing in my ears

that ringing clarifies

i find the sacred in the mundane

i meditate as i cleanse

leaving space for abundance

 

Bone collecting wild woman/ soul love saga/39

spring-2013-053

I am a bone collector…

Ravishing souls and the likes of them,

savoring the moments between time…

I explore the earth in all her sacredness.

I explore her in all her settled griminess

or manicured manipulations.

Knowing each tree I pass.

I sing to the plants and watch

them dance in the vibration of my song.

I am a wild woman

dancing naked and strong.

I am a wild woman

caught between ravious love

and divine union.

I am a wild woman

running with the wild animals

catching butterflys

spreading seeds on the wind.

Digging in the earth with my bare hands

planting gardens with dirty knees

sipping on the nectar

from a flower in mid day

tasting natures sugar fresh.

I am a wild woman

filling my psyche with healing energy

raising the vibration of humanity,

raising children I have birthed from my womb,

raising the vibration of the communities children.

it takes a village

sublime manifestations

Can you really be seen for the boundless cells of energy
grid lined with your body, outside of your body
a transmission of all ascension
creation to renagade soul solutions.

We are at the peak of enlightenment
an open door to the universal energies
of the sun, moon, and stars
pure energy guiding us
or reflecting from our bodies by way
of our influx of toxicity
pure energy that sustains us
leaving our reality in sublime manifestations
gathering our soulmates to play
in the great beyond

Transform into
trancendental being of enlightenment
through meditation
Opening the chakra’s through the divine light
allowing light energy to radiate through you
into the earth
a matrix style of healing
Where the higherself integrates
with mind, body and soul
one love
cells regenerate
and agelessness
falls into timelessness
As a guidence overtakes and directs you where to go…

Bipolar planetary preoccupation

 

 

When the winds have changedpuzzle peices

and nothing goes as planned
Bi polar up and ran with any of my sanity her rage brings out the darkest sides of my soul
Painful moments that go against everything i ever thought i was
And everything i think i am
This is beyond someone reacting in a difficult situation
This is someone who is constantly in a stAte of shock abused
battered
triggered
Trying to make things work

 

Julia Hill Butterfly and Mark from vt. wilderness School..

51g-r6C26eL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg

I went to see Julia Hill Butterfly In my hometown in Ma. She was speaking with another man Mark Moresy from the Vermont Wilderness school .

The last time I saw her I was sooo pregnant in Santa Cruz California. She had just touched her feet to the ground and was working on a book signing in the bookstore. She had lived in a redwood tree for 208 days to save the tree Luna and to enlighten the world about the decline of our ancient redwoods.. I waited until she was done reading in this standing room only store. Waited for the masses to talk and hug her… Those moments when you get to touch, talk or hug someone who has had such a profound effect on not only me but so many is priceless.

I had worked at a fundraiser and really got to know what was going on months earlier before I found out I was pregnant. I rolled veggie sushi all night long rocking and rolling in the town hall. She was in the last leg of her journey. I was still skinny and nimble talking to some activists about what it would take to do a tree stand. I had even made a plan to go talk to someone higher up that made decisions until I felt that flutter in my belly and saw a reflection of someone I didn’t recognize.

I knew I was pregnant the moment it happened… I had just gotten to Califoria and staked my tent in the redwoods I had been fighting with Josh except that one night. The Harvest moon was in full glory and the ritual was sacred enough for conception. I spent my pregnancy tucked away in the redwoods, first in a tent, than a shack and then in a trailer until I could fit no more. This is not my story though this is about her…

Last night I went to see her fourteen years later. She was gorgeous her aura shined beyond her words . I got a moment to speak with her before the “talk” Just for a few minuets.. I sat down next to her. I don’t know what I was thinking,,, I was so impressed with how she completely tuned into me and asked my mission.

She asked me what inspired me? Here is this international best selling author  (Saving Luna) asking me these loaded questions. I had already planned on inviting her to participate in the online life classhttps://www.coursesites.com/s/_sacredholisticarts I am teaching. Not that her answer would ever have any effect on how much I admire her! More of a curiosity than anything because she embodies everything that I stand for and everything that I want to teach and learn (and be)… Not only that but she is my hero!!!!!!!

I  handed her my book (Quantum spirituality) and gave her my info hugging and thanking her for all she has done. The gift is just that A gift because she has shared so much with everyone of herself.

I can’t believe the transformation in her!  She was always beautiful but this was beyond. She didn’t have to wear any makeup to hide her face. Saying she had filled out or grown incrediably sexy just sounds wrong and disgraceful. She was taller, wiser and more of a goddess than I remember . She  has completed her metamorphosis into a butterfly inspiring all those around her with her message and buety.

Mark and her spoke of social justice, they told their stories of their lives. What led them into activism what kept them motivated through everything.. The room was full of a 180 people. It is so hard to be around people with such amazing dedication to social justice and not be inspired to do something. I was always into doing the right thing. Sometimes you don’t know until someone sparks that fire within you

Living in Santa Cruz with Momma Sage and Mamma Sativa learning about holistic health and eating vegitarian and organic was a blessing for me. They changed the way I looked at food, it wasn’t just a commodity  and healthy wasn’t just what I was eating. Everything Mamma Sativa ate was organic everything she bought with intention and full of nutrients… Super foods…. I think maybe had I not met Julia when I did I could have easily went back to the life I had lived before half on the edge of insanity and chaos. I didn’t… I had more of a reason to pursue my injustices and more of a reason to apply dedication to the earth. I feel blessed for the people to come into my life when they have their is a time and a purpose for everything.

After the show my kids and I talked to her once more and discovered a new book  “Becoming”  I couldn’t put it down. She is an incrediable artist and poet.  Speaking from the heart and soul and truly connected to the divine. I am so grateful for this time that my family has been able to spend in her presence….
