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

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

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….

 

 

* 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)

Wheat’s connection to dis-ease and holistic health’s approach to a cure.

There are so many theories on cancer, radiation and the after shocks from the  protocol of killing cells. I am very interested in holistic approaches to going and staying cancer free.

What does it take to stay alive after a diagnosis? How do you stay cancer free when genetics are working against you? What are the long term effects of radiation? How can we use holistic health practices to our advantage?

175,000 woman are diagnosed with breast cancer a year(22,Weed).

My Mom,  is a survivor of breast cancer;she had a double mastectomy and has been cancer free for 8 years. Two of the five women I know that have been diagnosed with cancer from that time period are still alive. I attribute a lot of this to their lifestyle changes. Ginger didn’t quit smoking and Jake didn’t quit drinking they died both last year.

There are a few things that help along the growth of breast cancer;

Hormones including the one’s your body makes and the ones found in milk, meat, steroids and cortisone.

Organochlorines are found out in pesticides and herbicides, plastics and other chlorine products like water and bleached paper.

Radiation, Electromagnetic fields like the one’s emitted from microwaves and computers monitors.

Alcohol, and extra calories from processed foods and sugar.

Lights at night decrease melatonin which is beneficial in cancer prevention.

Sunscreen and mineral oil block the body’s ability to make vitamin d a great antioxidant that helps to fight cancer.  As we also know it prevents sunburns that can cause cancer… Make sure that you are balancing the screen free time with sunscreen and only use natural stuff without a lot of chemicals or make your own.

Woman who wear bra’s show a 20%increase in breast cancer because they cut off circulation. Wearing anti- perspirint decreses  the bodies ability to rid itself of toxins.

Good news though by changing to a healthy lifestyle it is reversible with the foods we eat like phytoestrogens, semi- vegetarian diet, lots of green veggies, lots of vitamin c, e, d, selenium . Though taking supplements is not as effective as eating real foods that contain these ingredients. Susan Weed has a few books on herbal remedies to help along your health. She makes herbalism easy to understand. She makes breast cancer a beatable case.

What it comes down to is attitude and the ability to beat it…Regular exercise improves the body’s function of immune system and reduces stress. Taking the time for self care is important too. The typical women who has cancer is one who tries hard to please others.(22-25weed)

Darell Shchmitt, 56, is a survivor of pancreatic cancer which has little to no success rate in overcoming. What is really interesting in this case is his diagnosis after surviving.  The Doctor’s found the cancer through biopsy’s that they took in the head of his pancreases. A biopsy is in essence very invasive way of finding cancer by cutting into the body and taking tissue samples from the place that has abnormal cells. Within two weeks of his Diagnosis he was on the operating table, three weeks after his terrible stomach pain that caused him to go to the doctors in the first place. ‘Aug. 28, 2007. Doctors removed the head and neck of Schmidty’s pancreas, half of his stomach, his gall bladder, bile duct, some lymph nodes and one-and-a-half feet of his small intestine.’ After the surgery he started loosing weight rapidly going from 206 to 155 in just a few weeks, he was very weak and grey. Soon he was diagnosed with Celiac’s disease and osteoporosis. Now he is taking 26 pills a day he has changed his diet and is living a good life.(Gardner) The only question that I have is if his celiac diagnosis came earlier than would it have saved him from having to endure cancers at all?

My son, Ocean was having really bad eczema all over his body but especially bad in the diaper area. He was just five years old. After I read the Atkins diet and discovered that wheat allergies come out differently and that most people are not able to process gluten in varies forms. After a long story his wheat allergy was diagnosed but not before other symptoms had taken over his body.  He had an anaphylactic reaction; he contracted staph and kept getting it during that first summer. He almost died. He couldn’t pick his head up off the chair, his stomach was bleeding. I got rid of the medicines and did a pure holistic approach to his issues. I got his diet under control, turns out wheat is in everything. As the toxicity was cleaned out of his system his skin cleared up and his energy returned. He was having topical symptoms of toxicity in his system and I was able to change this and solve his issue’s had I not than would he have also developed cancer or celiacs?

I had never would have  linked wheat allergy and eczema together. Ocean would have continued to show symptoms that would have been diagnosed as topical things like eczema. . Now I search for cures I find all kinds of links to wheat allergy’s and cancers, auto immune disorders, ‘osteoporosis, epilepsy, learning disorders, infertility, miscarriages, liver disease and a wide variety of problems.’( Miller)

Gluten allergy’s mean that you are not processing your food properly. The digestion doesn’t work when you have gluten sensitivities; the body becomes nutritionally deficient causing auto immune deficiency. Not all who have one thing will have another, everything depends on environmental conditions.

The tissue damage from the inability to digest wheat gluten proteins causes so many varieties of problems that won’t ever be considered by most physicians as a issue. Every body has  cancer cells that could mutate; a healthy body takes care of these. If your body is compromised through stress or improper digestion these cells could turn cancerous, you could get sick from the common cold or other auto immune problems could take over.

“Gluten contains opioid mimicking peptides called exorphins that have been found to cause such a state. These peptides can increase the risk of cancer by preventing the immune system’s natural killer cells from detecting and destroying cancerous cells. Exorphins can also facilitate the progression of cancer by increasing insulin production which has the effect of feeding cancer cells and assisting their growth.’(Miller)

So just taking gluten out of your diet could significantly alter your body’s ability to fight anything. Gluten has peptides that resemble human tissue’s making the body react through antibodies to attack different organs of the body.(Miller)

Keeping your immune system operating at ‘maximum efficiency’ (Micheaud and Feinstein)is essential to avoid cancer.

Avoiding all carcinogens in the environment is important to keeping cancer at bay when you are genetically disposed to having an uprising in your body.

Other ways to keep your immune system a boost according to preventions fighting disease is by getting some exercise, laughing, sleeping and staying away from smoking and sunlight.

Taking vitamins a, b, c, d, and zinc need to become part of everyday living.. The trick is that even chemo won’t work after doing it once, you have to keep trying different things. There are all kinds of alternatives that can be used in combination with biomedicine or alone.

By reducing all health issue’s to just two culprit’s, we can simplify treatments. There are living things like parasites and toxins that hamper our body’s ability to fight deterioration. Dr. Clark has many case studies that cure all dis-ease. She has discovered a way to build an electronic pulse that zaps parasites within minuets or through a series of cleanses she has found a way to kill them within weeks.  She claims that cancer is a parasite called fluke dis-ease. If you kill the parasite than you kill the cancer.(331,Clark)

fasciopsis buskii is a flat worm in the intestines, usually living a quiet life, the eggs should pass with the bowls. Evolution states that the human carrier will allow fluke to live longer as long as the human stays alive.

What happens if the flukes egg’s are not able to pass through the intestines and hatch? Than it starts to travel around the body, laying egg’s in the breast and then the breast’s inability to kill the fluke leads to the imbalance of cancer cells. As long as the there is a abnormal solvent like isopropyl alcohol in our everyday products; ‘Bottled water, decaffeinated caffeine, white sugar, carbonated beverages, fruit juices, hair stuff, skin stuff, sprays and hand sanitizers,’(335, Clark) the fluke will thrive.

Clark also goes on to state that carcinogens once thought to cause cancer are actually agents in showing cancer where to develop. Cigarettes will cause the lungs to weaken and cancer to develop there. Nickel will lead the flukes to the pancreases.

Top carcinogens would include; ‘Freon, Copper, fiberglass or asbestos, mercury as in tooth fillings, lead, formaldehyde and nickel.’(337, Clark)

There is a mold that grows on food that also decreases the bodies ability to detoxify alcohol in our body, so she suggest that we use powdered vitamins c on all of our foods to boost that ability. Then follow her parasite cleanse.

I had my own  personal case study with the parasite cleanse. Due to my acl injury, actually there was a bunch of injury in my knee when I broke that ligament. Much of the muscles pulled and sprained around the knee. What dr. Clark explains is that through injury and over usage of a area toxins and fluke accumulation will build up around that area in the form of kidney stones, heal spurs, muscle knots, lumps. I ended up with a very painful heal spur that lasted until a few days after I started this cleanse. Three ingredients; clove, wormwood and black walnut.  Check on her website for the full listing of cleanses, ingredients and schedule.

What ever you do keep researching and never give up. Lead as much of a wholesome life as you can and eat very minimal processed foods and sugar… You can and will overcome.

magik made in meals and love/ 38/ soul love saga

Our river runs through it.

Radio active pollutions.

on the banks green edge

The compression on my chest

Is as constant as my pulse to live

My heart is suffocating

To its on  beat

As loneliness settles in

A fixture that turns on and off at will

Leaking out pheromones

Unable to be kept

Bottled tight

Stranger than these moments

Passing are the simple reflections

Of what life could be

With each quick glance

Shut off valves with conversations

Prime year void of the

Connection between partners

Or desires between lovers

Trace elements of complex

Relationships when eyes meet

Or a hand touches another

Unspoken words

Magic made in love and meals

Upheaval and dismay

I clean to be strong pushing

Through attitudes and misconceptions

And never ending battles

Of obstacles that are life

Just so I  can feel the sun

Warm my skin
