The Child In Us

child in us

Painting: The Child In Us by Tania Marie ~ Shares Porcupine’s wisdom of innocence, renewed sense of wonder, and trust in Spirit. (Prints and original available here:

Inner child work has always been a powerful seed “key” to creating change. And when done with unconditionally loving courage, can be the impetus for empowering yourself in unlimited ways.

We all have a child within that is in need of our loving acceptance. No matter how strong and self-reliant you think you are, there is a time for tender vulnerability in everyone’s journey that is needed to cultivate a garden that your child-like heart can creatively and expansively blossom in. This will provide astounding results in your current experience and with all that you intend.

As adults we carry with us false beliefs from the past that as children we learned to believe. A lot of that includes the things that we were taught was “wrong” with us and so the greatest rejection living with us today is the one to, and of, ourselves with these beliefs.

Listening to and softening our inner dialogue to embrace the perfection of all that we are, is a needed part of our daily practice. It is important to know ourselves to be whole and forgive ourselves, as well as revel in the quirky beauty that our inner child has to share.

Loving your inner child will support healing the darkest experiences by shining light on the beauty that was always there. This opens doorways that the Universe will support you with when you are willing to partner with it.

The Child In Us – New Painting #4 in the Universal ARKitecture Series

The Child In Us by Tania Marie – 24″ x 24″ Acrylic on Canvas Now Available

I’ve been quite immersed in projects, so my new series was on hold for a couple of weeks (boo), but percolating in the background nonetheless. I was so happy to be “back in the saddle” again (Laura Bruno will get a giggle out of that) and flowing the creative channeling once again.

As I’ve shared, I am in process of creating a 33 painting new series called Universal ARKitecture, and this painting comes to us at #4 and is called, “The Child In Us.” It actually didn’t start out to be this painting, as I got ahead of myself and had started creating #5, always being a few steps ahead and anxious about that one (I only now realized the synchronous unfolding of how the painting that would have been #4 is now #5, my favorite and meaningful number, which perfectly aligns with what will be in that painting, as you’ll come to see) 🙂

However, it was miss Joy, my sweet lop-eared bunny companion who set mom straight!  Every time I was working on the painting, or trying to, as it was challenging energetically, she kept trying to bite it and was running off with my paint brushes and kept trying to get my attention. Finally I realized that the energy of this canvas, the first step in order to get to the next painting, and the timing was off. And once I consciously received the light bulb click, embraced this message, and allowed the animal spirit that was trying to get through come in, everything started to flow and magic took place. The energy of the next painting was also much larger and could not be contained in this canvas (24″ x 24″), needing a 48″ x 48″ instead, which the next one will be. The energy of squeezing a big energy into something too small for it was painful! And once I embraced the realization everything flowed peacefully.

Every one of these new paintings becomes my new favorite, so this is no exception. I am so in love with this tender little amazing porcupine! I just want to squeeze him with a giant hug!

For now, I’ve just taken a quick photograph to share, but today I’m actually having the paintings so far that I’ve completed, photographed professionally, so I will be able to share higher resolution and higher quality images shortly. All of these paintings are available and will be posted shortly on my website here: Universal ARKitecture. If interested in this one, or any you have seen me post so far, you can contact me at Prints will be available as well once I get good high res photos going.

Each of these paintings in the series conveys an animal spirit wisdom, which I am capturing along with the essence of the specific animal spirit that channels through to me. They are all endangered species as well, bringing conscious awareness to our animal friends and a return to natural harmony on Earth.

Porcupine wisdom includes:

  • Innocence

  • Trust in Spirit

  • Renewed sense of wonder

  • Creating your own path

  • Protection of boundaries

  • Defense when threatened

  • Allowing others their path

  • Non-interference
