My School of Art is the Miracle of Nature Within Me
I’ve been immersed in creative energy right now, reaching deep from the source of that power to bring forth many inspired creations. I am in process of birthing 13 new Crystal Illuminations sacred paintings, along with some other channelings, in record time. My surges go in flows and so I ride each wave when they arise and then glide to shore to ground into what is in the air next, until another surge emerges.
Yesterday, I was in quite the flow and along with the scorching heat here, it was quite a powerful emission of energy in my room that was firing things up. I had plans to take a beach walk with a girlfriend of mine in the day, but my intuition said to remain in the flow and if that flow came to closure in time later, a sunset walk felt much more in alignment.
Well, my painting went really beautifully and I was in that vortex of creation where you hit that sweet spot of joyous inner explosion, and this carried me quickly through the day, finishing just at the right time. It was such a high impact of creative energy and along with the heat, my Crown Chakra was feeling a tad bit expanded from the energy in my body rising up and through me.
So, heading to the beach felt like the perfect way to cool and ground down, refresh, renew, and invigorate for the next wave of inspirational flow for today and tomorrow’s creative continuation.
Because I listened to the energy and didn’t stop or buck the flow, going only when and if the energy felt supportive of doing so, it seems the Universe had a mirroring gift awaiting at my favorite beach here, Crystal Cove.
Words can’t describe the magical quality that was in the air, as we made our way down the cliff steps and spent the next hour and a half walking at the water’s edge. The evening was balmy, in the high eighties, the water was refreshing, and the sky was a brilliant dance of miracles recreating themselves, as the sun set on the horizon. It was so surreal. We both felt like we were in some enchanted, exotic location and experiencing a “time out of time”, which this beach seems to create by way of its portal I feel is there.
There was a mellow larger gathering of people in celebration for the holiday weekend that we came upon and yet we were in our own little world. Many photographers for some reason had gathered too, somehow knowing it was going to be an ecstatic sunset, which it was. I saw several of them snapping away at the natural essence of the evening, capturing even us in our joy. We danced along the shore and through the people – some of which noted our exuberance and yet we wove through like dancing faeries come to pixie-dust the celebration. (yes we literally did glide, dance, and skip along)
I told my Melissa that the view we were gifted and the whole setting and experience we were walking into was like a painting come to life that we had opened the door to. It had the essence of a step back in time, set amidst the old historic cottages on the beach and hill used by artists of the day (first built as a South Seas movie set and seaside colony of the 30’s and 40’s). There were movie set kind of spot lights up too for this party and we only heard one song, which I’m unfamiliar with the name, but it was a song we both just happen to love that was so perfectly orchestrated to the ambience, mood and energy.
And the sky had brush strokes of painted colors and wispy ethereal qualities that reminded me of where my inspirations come from when I paint, which I shared with her. I am always fascinated with the sky and the dance of colors and clouds, light and cosmic birthing I see there. They mimic the way I paint and I can so clearly see the sky as a mirror of my soul and vice versa.
My school of art has been life, not any classes or school of technique – simply the miracles of nature and the cosmos are my teachers – the essence of which reside within me. As I dip my brush into every spectrum of color, and allow the magic of the moment to take over in any flick and swirl of movement ignited, I am mirroring the magic of Source in loving power of creative explosions.
As an artist I am inspired by the natural creative energy that is all around…the magic that is inherent in nature’s ever-changing brilliance. It mirrors to me the power and fragility of each moment that beckons me to reach deeper each day and create from ALL of who I am.
“The sky is not my limit…I am.” ~T.F. Hodge
I am grateful for last evening’s gift and for the creative inspiration and support for today’s painting.
In the Spirit of In Lak’ech – The Series Process, All 5 Donated To “A Night Of Creative Compassion”, Plus 25% of Sales to Farm Sanctuary
This morning I ran across some old photos taken back in 2006 at the onset of starting my first and very important series, “In Lak’ech“. Interestingly, these are the only photos I’ve ever taken of my work in progress (and there aren’t many of it at that). They happen to be of the very first painting in this series, which really kicked off the next generation of creative channeling, as well as shifted my life profoundly and the energy of things on bigger picture levels.
I had been creating paintings previous to this, each having their own door-opening significance in my life, but in 2006 life took a very different turn for me and this series, which has been a favorite for many, was a huge part of an enormous tapestry that began to un-weave and then re-weave itself anew.
All of that could be its own book, but for now I found it synchronous to find these since this series is a focal point of the upcoming “A Night of Creative Compassion“. More on that in a moment.
As mentioned, “Fire” was the first painting in the series, “In Lak’ech”, and the birthing of it began when I was living on the Kitsap Peninsula in Indianola, WA. You can see a photo here of my mom and I wrapped in a blanket having fun with “Fire” behind us in its very first stage, set with the backdrop of Puget Sound.
I find it interesting to see how I used to draw out in fine detail, the whole foundation of the painting before painting it, whereas now I just go straight into painting. Albeit, these paintings were REALLY fine detailed and had to be mapped out, so it did actually make sense at the time. These paintings are definitely where “seeing it in person” is a whole other experience.
My home at the time of creating “Fire” was right on the water’s edge with a full view of the city of Seattle. It is interesting to see this photo, as I see remnants of Nestor – her toys and water bottle – as well as my 2nd of 3 times I had chopped all of my hair off to mirror change in my life – all integral parts that were supporting the process.
Anyway, the watery essence of little Indianola, WA presented the perfect opening to access creative flow from a very deep-seeded place. And I had many interesting and magical experiences with Nestor while creating this piece and living there.
Interestingly, this is the only piece that was created in WA, as not long after it was completed, we moved to the high altitude area of Lake Tahoe, NV. I went from sea level to about 6500 elevation overnight and found myself thriving at the high altitudes much more so. “Fire” was actually wrapped and strapped to the front grill of the large moving truck for the journey, which is pretty interesting when you think about it.
Lake Tahoe was my next and most magical watery domain where the next two pieces in the series unfolded and the fourth began – along with Nestor’s passing on, my marriage at the time coming to an end, and my becoming a Reiki Master Teacher. But the fourth and fifth came to closure when I moved down to Reno from the lake – still in the vortex energy of the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Tahoe and at 4500 elevation, but where some new grounding energy for closure took place.
Each of these five pieces took me a year to create because of everything going on in my life and due to the enormity of what was being channeled on collective levels – not just personal. All things have a Divine timing to them and I have learned well that you can’t rush the bigger picture and what the collective is ready for. This was also a time period of immense traveling that took place in my life, huge flourishing of my gifts, and very deep uncovering and integrative work. Much of my travels were specifically connected to each of the pieces I was painting in order to directly do healing work at the sacred sites, lands and vortexes for both self and others.
I see everything I do as part of the collective web and is how I intentfully choose, create, and live.
The last two pieces in the series were much quicker and were carried out in the same year, 2009, mirroring how processes were speeding up on all levels.
Since then my work has shifted, mirroring the speeding up of things, the ease at which things can shift and are accessed because of the work already done, and even in terms of working with less dense energies, as those were heavier and more involved to work with while transferring through. I have learned how to consciously channel things in different ways, but also now have access to a whole different level of experience because of the process and what took place through the creation of these five collectively important pieces.
There is a new lightness of heart and flow available to us now because of the work we have all done.
And yet these five paintings are rich in encoded messages and integrative healing, that I have seen morph and shift, as we have. There has been a resurgence of their energy in a new way that people are becoming more ready for now, than they were when they were created. It feels like people are embracing what they can assist, with greater ease than they were before, which involves very deep DNA-shifting, and soul and subconscious integration.
These paintings are my interpretations and newly expansive perspectives of each element as seen through different astrological signs in their highest potential (Divine Male and Female aspects). They incorporate Mayan glyphs and act as portals that bridge time and come through an ancient story that weaves Sumerian and Babylonian, Ancient Egyptian, Ancient Druid and Celtic Ireland, Atlantis and Lemuria, and the Cosmic Earth.
A little background on the series, “In Lak’ech”:
A mystical experience of awakening, as the Ancients and Power Beings of the Five (elements) bring forth their messages of integrative healing. “In Lak’ech” is the Mayan principle of Universal Love that is similar to Namaste. As an expression of honoring when greeting each other, this profound realization means “I am another yourself” or “I am another you”. And when shared as “In Lak’ech Ala K’in” – “Ala K’in” is responsive and mirrors that back with “you are another myself” – “I am you and you are me.” The Maya priest-shamans recognized that we are one global human being. It is about dissolving the ego into complete unconditional love; “dissolving until you are ‘NOT’, then the World enters you.”
This series represents the Five Elements of Fire, Earth, Air, Water, and Spirit that speak to the mind, body, heart, and soul both personally and collectively from a new and integrative perspective of Divinity within the union of Divine Male and Female. They contain within them Mayan Sacred Glyphs as a connective thread through which a message of healing was revealed. These encoded “Healing Portals” mirror a journey of integration and healing, as you embrace a return to natural harmony. They are layered with energetic symbolism that can help shift things on a DNA level by simply viewing them. They imbue the beauty and value known by the Ancients into the now from pivotal Ancient times/civilizations that provide healing opportunity from the challenging elements that no longer serve us. Ancient wisdom has much to teach by taking what was learned and creating an integrative new reality in the now.
Mother Earth is calling us to remember. The Universe is reminding us to believe. The healing revealed is as unique as the individual experiencing it.
And this leads me back, full circle, to how “In Lak’ech” is tied into the upcoming event, “A Night of Creative Compassion”.
Next Saturday, September 7th, 2013 here in Los Angeles, there is going to be a spectacularly inspiring and heart-filled night of creative energy. This is a fundraising event for Farm Sanctuary, as well as a fun and engaging night of music, song, film, poetry, photography, painting, and more. It will be like a concert, exhibition, screening, and party all rolled into one. Most of all I love the focal point of compassionate and collective synergy in service.
When I was asked to be a part of this event I immediately felt I would be bringing all five pieces of “In Lak’ech” into the light. Reproductions of this series have been exhibited before, but never all at once. And actually, to this day, all five originals have yet to ever be in public together (only one made it out to Raw Spirit festival and that was potent to say the least). So I still foresee there is a time and place they will be one day soon. I’m always listening to that guidance.
But for now, I have felt guided to donate high quality reproductions – Giclee on Canvas – of all five in their original size of 48″ x 48″. These pieces will be part of the Silent Auction taking place during the night to help raise funds for Farm Sanctuary.
The silent auction will also include famous horror writer (Hellraiser), director, and artist, Clive Barker’s paintings, as he is also donating 6 of his pieces to the event.
I will also be donating a smaller print to the raffle – “A Walk Between Worlds” – and will have some smaller prints of In Lak’ech and other goodies available for purchase at the event as well.
A theme of “a return to natural harmony within and without” is the breadth of work I have chosen for this event, which includes our relationship to the Earth and Cosmos, the animals, all of Creation, and to ourselves and each other.
And there will be more wonderful creations and items in the auction and raffle that you will have the chance to take home with you at unbelievable bargains, while giving from your heart in support of the animals and to show your value for creative energy.
Other things to look forward to during this event that is getting close to selling out:

Visionary Art to Shift You into New Realities – Full Series of the “ARK” & Eternal Harmony Now Available
I’m happy to announce that my latest series, Universal ARKitecture, is now available in its fullness at my website www.taniamarie.com. Having such a full plate these days, I had gotten behind on updateing my website, but you can now check out the series and the latest at the link, which literally just got completed (for now). 😉
While I feel refreshed, having caught up with things, there is still quite a lot more new announcements that will be coming in. For now, you will find hints of what’s to come on the home page.
But this post is simply to share my cherished series with you all together for the first time. This is a momentous occasion for me that feels like when a mother gives birth to her children. And interestingly there are nine, so that sort of equates to the nine months of labor in a way, not to mention the perfection of a full cycle coming to closure and renewing.
All nine of these sacred animal spirit paintings can be purchased as originals or various giclees on both canvas or fine art paper to suit your desired size and affordability.
Note: “The Power of Silence” original is no longer available. But you can still purchase original-sized giclees of it and the quality of these giclees is astounding.
If you have any questions about any of these, about sizes, or if you would like to purchase several to have in your sacred space, spiritual center, yoga studio…contact me with requests.
I just today shipped off all 9 original sized giclees on canvas overseas to a healing center and I couldn’t be more honored, as this is the perfect mirror of how I see the paintings I create being utilized – to support others through the energy they convey and that they are imbued with, which assists shifting into new and empowered experiences.
Explore the series of 9 and read about their collective and individual meanings here: Universal ARKitecture
I have also written individual posts on each that you can peruse by name on this blog.
With the updates, I have also been able to finally add the beloved new piece, Eternal Harmony – The Journey Home to my website for purchase of giclees as well. Many people had shared resonance with this piece, so I had announced giclees available a couple of weeks ago, but hadn’t officially gotten it up on my website until today.
Giclees are still available at Pre-Order Special price on this piece until September 22, 2013. So you have just under a month still to place orders and receive 20% Off.
If you are interested in pre-ordering, contact me for info and purchasing details.

Eternal Harmony – The Journey Home Special Pre-Order Discount Prices
After September 22nd, you will be able to purchase it directly from my website here at regular prices:

Payment Plan Options Available – Contact me at email@example.com with inquiries and orders for any of the visionary art your heart is feeling drawn to.
Food As A “Work Of Art” Enlivening My Life
I always look forward to meals, especially my morning smoothies, which really get me over the hump of waking up – something that can be a bit of a challenge and a process to take “smoothly”. 😉
Since I went vegan about 8 years ago, my whole relationship with, and experience of, food is so enlivened. I don’t remember loving food so much, nor consciously understanding the whole picture connection of it as a source of overall well-being even beyond just myself. Each meal is nature’s “work of art” and making meals has simplified into a lively whole food experience that is circle-of-life-encompassing.
These reflections nudged me while I was having lunch and so I was inspired to share this for whatever reason. And now, having just finished my lunch, my tummy is feeling so content right now and I am feeling clear and ready for today’s creative process of painting.
I am enlivened and blessed by the foods that Mother Earth provides. And today that was a “bowl of gratitude” filled with a beautiful salad of baby kale, broccoli and sunflower sprouts, heirloom tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, strawberries, and a touch of sauerkraut, all sprinkled with hemp seeds, chlorella, and fresh pepper.
I find making meals to be simple and quick (the more simple and quick, the better – not only for time efficiency, but in terms of assimilation) and I see how every day is a cohesive experience of all aspects of my life working in partnership to support optimal results.
Yet no matter how simple a meal may be, it is exquisite in nature whether intentionally created into a work of art, or simply realized as the work of art it truly is – much like our beautiful temple bodies.
My personal motto is “creating life as a work of art”, as you can see by the title/theme of my Blog. I see every thing as an integral part of the “painting of experience” I am creating each day, with each stroke of color having great meaning and depth. The more clearly each color is expressed and chosen, the more vibrant the “life picture”.
And I do LOVE vibrant colors, as one can tell by viewing my painting portfolio. The colors of my creations mirror the spectrum of nature’s miracle wonders and bounty.
Everything is always so filled with synchronicity, as not long after I felt guided to share this short thought today, someone sent me this video below that seems so fitting. Perhaps a different song choice would have reflected the beautiful images even more so, but nonetheless these are stunning images of fruit and vegetable sculptures that mirror this sentiment I am sharing.
I hope you enjoy these “works of art” as you contemplate your own life’s creation.
You Are The Light & The Love That Is Needed
All day something collectively has been nudging me and I couldn’t figure out exactly what the details of the message were, until right now when I found this video, “Send Your Light – In Unity With All The Other Yous” that I posted back in April as a reblog from my dear Laura Bruno. You can see the original post here: Powerful Integration and Healing
I want to add to this message that YOU are so unique and special, as is every single soul sharing this collective experience with you. The paths we each choose may be different, the vehicles of life we’ve chosen to embody may look different, but no matter how any of that unfolds or looks, it is all totally perfect just as it is – just as you are.
We are explorers on a beautifully infinite journey to enjoy every aspect of everything – and especially right now, in human body, to enjoy our minds, hearts, bodies, spirits, and the very fabric of life. Everything you are in this moment is beauty beyond what you can fathom.
There are no wrong choices and there is no wrong in you. Let it all go, allow, love, and remember where you come from and who you are.
Relax into the experience. Every thing you “think” matters, doesn’t.
What is most important is how well you’ve learned to love because of, not in spite of, all of what has shaped your experience.
Trust the highest creative intelligence and all-loving essence that lies within you – within all of us. You can do this when you learn to simply BE.
So listen within, slow down, hear the voice of your heart and you too can come to be so tuned in and tapped into the presence of you that every single thing you engage in will be a perpetual, conscious communication and channeling of that presence from within – life will be a meditation without need for meditating.
And in this place, you will be grounded, consciously aware, tuned into all of creation, while experiencing the expansiveness of your highest potentials in fuller realization.
And in this place you will be more alive than ever with your heart lighting the way.

The Real You ~ Alan Watts
It really IS so simple, this magnificent experience of YOU. Immerse yourself in Alan’s words and allow them to shift your experience energetically without over-thinking or trying to make it more complex than it is. You don’t have to “know” how or why about anything. You simply already ARE by your profound “beingness”.
It’s Okay To Feel ~ Allowing Your Humanness To Be The Reflection Of Divinity It Is
Have you ever punished yourself or felt ashamed and “less than” because of feeling angry, sad, disappointed, hurt, or judgmental? My guess is that I’d be close to accurate in saying that nearly all of us at some point have learned to react in this way towards feelings that are simply natural processes, but have been labeled “wrong” on the flip side of the same coin of life experience.
It is all really “okay” and to view things this way or to be hard on yourself really is not what unconditional love and compassion is about and keeps us trapped in the very separated world of black and white duality.
One thing I have found to be misleading with New Age thoughts of the old have been to mentally reprogram with positive affirmations, but with an unrealistic focus and expectation that there will never again be a moment of experiencing anything on one side of the coin because you have moved onto the other.
Remember, the very existence of one is only possible because of the other. We experience the flip-flop because of our present focuses and yet at any moment we can also experience the simultaneousnous of All That Is, which always IS even while we are in this see-saw effect – for now, perhaps this is simply a concept to many that is hard to grasp, yet many of you enter that space at certain “tapped in” moments.
While this “positive programming” can last for a while, it is not built to last. It potentially brings with it a lot of repression, or potential denial and “stuffing” of old, core emotions.
Glass castles built in the sky can easily be shattered by one single rock thrown from the foundation upon which it was built.
Hence, as within, so without. Denial, judgment (which can include the focus on only “one side” of experience), and refusal, can and will come back to haunt.
The trick however, is not only “not” to run from it, but to learn to love, forgive, and realize the natural flow of emotions that are integral and valuable to your evolution as a human being. This is now possible in an instant when we grasp the new perspectives and ways. That is, until we start to over-analyze and think, “It simply can’t be that easy,” and therefore we negate that we actually shifted the experience when we go back into our old stories and programming to try to “work it out” some more.
We cannot escape feelings and challenges, but we can learn to embrace them as the Divine perfection they are and see them through the same Universal eyes that simply observes, never judges, and is in the business of experiencing for sake of experiencing itself, and all of the integral parts that make up the whole of All That Is.
We, in human form, are gifted the opportunity to experience all of these parts that make up Oneness, in a very tangible and sensual way. The trick is not to get “stuck” in any one experience, thought, or feeling, but instead, to allow the cycling of energy to do what it is born to do…keep moving, re-creating, expanding, flowing, and blazing in motion of perfection.
The gift of living in a human body temple is to BE human. And while we are learning about ourselves, we are also provided opportunity to experience out the spectrum of colors that make up the Universe, in a focused way of our present choosing, while being challenged to remember it all in its unity and integration. At some point you will be able to walk both of these paths at once, coming to realize your luminous beingness that is always perfectly imperfect.
But for now, just realizing the beautiful perfection of energy, how it flows, and learning to mirror the ocean’s currents, nature’s seasons, and the cosmos’ rebirthing – all as natural cycles of life force energy simply being in its exquisiteness and grace – will greatly release the fixations of false illusions holding you stuck in any one experience.
A new reality is awaiting creation once you cross the threshold of your limitations.
It is really of benefit to evolve into a place where you can value, embrace, appreciate, experience, read, and flow feelings in their fullness. This provides a key to the map of consciousness that will bring you into your highest potentials of awakening, as well as into abundance and harmony in all areas of life.
When we spend time talking about the unwanted feelings this usually will do the opposite of moving them through you, and rather, may increase the experience of them, as you get stuck in the spiraling “story”.
Even people who have done a lot of spiritual work can find their awakening limited because they haven’t yet learned to fully allow for flow of feelings in their life. This can create challenges with abundance, health, drama filled relationships, and a whole gamut of challenging emotions and struggles.
Along with flowing the feelings with gentle nurturing, also remember to change the inner landscape and work with the mirrors there the minute they show up, which will then reflect the outer reality you are embodying.
When you truly get this, things do actually become magical. This isn’t just a word I enjoy using. It IS an actual reality that is available to choose.
Some ways to gauge how you are doing is to look at your body and your life, as they will never lie. Do they flow with ease and grace? If not, then you can start to take a look at the different layers of your life for the messages they are revealing to you – look at your state of happiness and well being, your relationships, your abundance, your physical body, your work…
All of this, including your consciousness and spiritual awakening has everything to do with the core feelings that reside within you about everything in and around you.
If everything isn’t the way you desire, remember that this is also okay. Simply use the information and messages as the tools to help get you where you do want to be without judgment of where you’re at now, or where you came from.
Nature doesn’t judge or think twice about her trees who lose all of their leaves in the winter, does she? She doesn’t think twice, because its simply a cycle of life and all things always WILL cycle around in a renewed and unique way – every moment recreating itself from the creative force that is your Source. All of it is in Divine order and alignment. It is when we get in the way of the cycles and start building a dam to stop the water’s flow, that we are creating unnatural effects that will have to give way when we may least want or expect it to. You can’t buck Universal laws. 🙂
What is your protocol for working with your feelings? Is it one of recognition and honoring, or one of angry denial and judgment? Do you love all of your feelings now, or try to get rid of ones you don’t like because they don’t fit the “ideal” of “perfection”?
Have you done some of the spiritual bypassing and “fluffiness” with your emotions? Whereas you “fake” a reality of feeling, crack a smile, and simply affirm otherwise. These don’t last and when they don’t, we wonder why, as we thought that’s what we were told to do, right? Whether it was our parents who showed us how they “smiled” their way through frustrations because they thought it best we don’t see their pains and challenges since they were taught to just push through it, or whether it was the New Age teachings that said to focus on affirming only the positive or to meditate to escape it, there are conditionings to “unlearn” that simply don’t work.
And there are many other aspects we’ve all likely experienced one or more of to also be conscious about, while remembering not to judge the steps we’ve taken already, where we come from, or anything that has led us to where we are now. It has all been a perfect unfolding (including the people that taught us) of simply stepping stones on our personal growth path with good intentions from the place they and we could “see” from at the time.
Yet, now you can review them and see which things may still be inhibiting or slowing your liberation and which are actually expanding it. Then let them be. Thank them. Let go and allow the flow to naturally move through you so that it can catch up to your new mental programming and work in synergy with, rather than against, them.
Some very good intentioned modalities we’ve all exercised are: over-analyzing feelings and getting stuck in the story only talking rather than feeling them fully, releasing and moving through them, constantly looking for the magic fix to once and for all heal and rid yourself of things forever or getting to a place of some “devised” perfect state of only “good” feelings, becoming dependent on others to “heal” for you (which includes venting to friends, family, and counselors for indefinite years on end) rather than committing to learn how to do it yourself and be able to tap into your empowered source within (As truly no one can alter your experience for you. They can merely support you with the best possible opportunity and environment for temporary results, but the long term is dependent upon you).
There is nothing more freeing and enlivening than discovering your ability to be experiencing what you have long desired, rather than merely talking or reading about it. If you are here on Earth at this time, you have every opportunity to experience more fullness of you now, in your own unique way, just as anyone else. And you also have the choice to move more freely through your perfect perpetual evolution. There are many who are coming to experience this more and more and so it is becoming much more prevalent a possibility by the increasing rippling waves on the collective ocean.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll repeat it again. Gone are the days of having to work so long and hard on yourself, to attend endless seminars and healing sessions, to struggle, process, and become overwhelmed with thinking you have to learn everything there possibly is before you will be some idea of an enlightened, awakened being.
You are already spiritual by default. Remembering this is what you are living out through your human experience in your beautiful temple body, can shift you into realizing there is Divinity innate to you always that isn’t Universally being judged. We judge because we forget and this happens when we only identify with one aspect of ourselves, rather than our wholeness, which believe it or not, is always present in every single moment – yes even when you get angry or triggered by something.
Many of us have gone through the long drawn out processes, but that doesn’t mean that you have to, nor that you have to continue to if you already have. That’s the beauty of our interconnectedness. And I can tell you that I experience the distinction between my processes from before and the simplicity of the now. It is very easy to shift any experience in the moment these days.
Having come from the “old” way I can clearly see the differences. I do see that even in the spiritual New Age community of thinking that there is an old and new way – one based still on the programming and foundations of the “hard work” (old male) experiences we thought we were moving away from with our pulling away from it, and one rooted in grace, ease, and flow (Divine Feminine that then works in partnership and harmony with Divine Male) that is creating a different way and choice.
It is up to you to use your free will and choose another reality and with that, different perspectives and paths that will lead you to what you desire in essence, that will actually work for you because they are aligned with the energetics present now.
There isn’t a lot of teaching out there that addresses how to move through all of your levels in order to integrate them. Positive affirmations are only a piece of the puzzle as they address only the mental and suppress the rest of what you are feeling in your body and emotions, which can cause confusion inwardly that will show up later. And then many of us fall prey to a destructive spiral of self-judgment.
“The important thing to remember is that we can’t skip over the levels. We can’t just go straight to the unity level and pray and meditate all day long and expect that we’re gonna be healed, because what happens is that people who meditate a lot will be fantastic when they’re meditating or when they’ve been praying for three hours. But as soon as they go back out into the world, they become activated in their body and they don’t know why. And there’s this subtle message inside of us that says ‘What’s wrong with me? Why am I not getting better? I’m doing all this spiritual stuff.” The reason you’re not getting any better is because “you can’t just focus on the unity and then expect the body and the heart to know the truth about themselves. We have to work with the level of the body, the level of the heart, the level of the soul, and we heal on every level.” ~ Paige Bartholomew
Working with these levels, to me, is about allowing. Lovingly recognizing, honoring, mirroring, and bringing together each level with utmost presence and loving responsibility to life can have profound and efficient results that you have desired.
In doing so, you also learn compassion for others, as well as realize that you are loved in all of your wholeness at every step of the journey. There is no particular place or level to attain – only to keep going with the flow of the natural rhythms that will guide you always.
So when you are triggered, or find old stuff coming up, realize its presence is a gift. Not one to attach to and never let go of, but one to unwrap, so you can actually experience what is inside the box under the wrapping. All of the old we have stored away is merely a lot of accumulated boxes that are pushing open the closet door we have carefully locked them away behind, out of sight.
Remember that life is about giving and receiving. Anything done one-sided is not in natural flow of energy. So, too, is this true of the emotions we have been gifted – all of the spectrum that is – for our wholeness evolution. It is time to open and receive in flow.
In the Light of Love ~ Om Shree Dhanvantre Namaha
Another beautiful Mantra and message to fill your heart and soul with from Deva Premal and Miten with Manose. Video filmed here in Malibu, California. Something magical about the Pacific Ocean and paired with the musical inspirations from these beautiful souls – pure love.
Given the messages I’m receiving, this feels Divinely supportive to share.
In the light of love we are whole. In the light of love we are home. In the light of love we heal and sing. Thy will be done In the light of love. ~ Om Shree Dhanvantre Namaha
A Second “Twin” Star of David Portal – August 25th, 2013
You may remember the post from July 29th I shared on the Star of David – Merkaba – Grand Sextile Portal which had profound effect for everyone and was a time to really tune in and harness that heart intention that would be amplified.
Well, this Sunday, August 25th, there is going to be a second “twin” Star of David creating what is being called a “Peace Portal”.
So, what does this mean? Well, it’s yet another energetic doorway to harnessing intentional peace within our hearts – sounds like something good to do every moment of each day, right?
But truth be told, it is easy to get pulled in different directions and not take advantage of the chance to do that daily in a way that would truly shift your experience.
So, if this is the case for you, no reason to be angry that you may get off track now and then – just simply forgive yourself and focus on the now moment.
For people who may not feel they can always take time out in sacred space with themselves, perhaps these energetic doorways are the few, but potent, times you do, to support major shifts.
This is a very opportune time on the 25th, and the time leading up to and around it, to really amplify together in heart from the core, out. It’s a beautiful and empowering alignment of energies that will support you and the collective, in profound ways, if you DO actually take the time to really hone in on tuning in to your feelings, releasing fears, creating heart-full intentions, standing in your authenticity, bearing your heart in courageous vulnerability, professing your peaceful intentions, and walking in the groundedness of that harmonic balance from within.
You may be noticing how, as things have been releasing that you are gaining more clarity, are more consistently feeling in the vortex of flow, how things are magically taking place with little to no effort, come about by simply being aligned in your heart and merely just whispering a desire from that space, and are materializing in profound ways.
No longer are the days of just dreaming…everything is coming to be, especially if you have been conscientiously doing the work. You may find greater recognition is revealed to you about the new you are moving into, as well as experience how everything is in Divine perfection beyond what your mind need know how to explain. 🙂
And you may also find that a lot you thought you were done with is coming to light, as you recalibrate into the new, which no longer has room to store that baggage.
Let it be…
As Mystic Mamma shares, it is:
“A window of synchronicity, an opportunity for entrainment.”
And as astrologer Dipali Desai shares:
“This second gateway in Consciousness builds on the first which occurred on July 29th, 2013…It is a magnificent opportunity to activate ‘effortless manifestation’ seed of light within us and on the planet. Remember, there is earth element involved with this Twin Aspect Star Gateway on August 25th, 2013 and with that helps us bring the non-visible into the physical body and dimension.”
