Bridges to the Heart of the Cosmos Within
It’s been a while since I’ve shared some artistic creations so today’s post focuses on the energy of two recent custom commissions I completed, which I feel hold collective messages for reflection. As always, I find that the projects that find their way to me end up being much farther reaching experiences than just for the person they’re created for. I believe that each of us not only taps into the messaging of our higher selves through these channelings, but is tapping into the bigger picture well of themes that are relevant and supportive at this time. In this way, each person becomes a vessel or portal for the messaging and through their courage, we all receive the gift.
The first piece is the latest Magick Keepsake Chest that I was so excited to create. The title for it came to me right away – “Harmony Is…”
These chests are creative canvases for me to either take someone’s ideas and channel them into a cohesive expression, or completely flow through an entire vision from scratch for them. They become their own mini portals that are functional for storing things like crystals, jewelry, intentions and dreams, keys, special little mementos and treasures, store the ashes of beloved animal companions with locks of fur, and make wonderful Reiki boxes or gift boxes.
This one is going to be used as a Reiki box.
I was only given a list of some things the person was drawn to, to work from: They were drawn to the night themes in some of the chests they saw from past creations, were interested in what a “night rainbow” might look like since they see rainbows a lot, have had rabbit, bear, and hexagon energy showing up, and wanted that incorporated somehow with a tiny dandelion some where.
I was so happy when they saw their creation and shared, “I absolutely love how all the random elements came together so beautifully.”
The photos you see are what channeled through as the woven story for this vessel.
What do you think?
As I relayed to the person who commissioned this, here is a little description of the vision that manifested:
“It’s SO hard to capture the accurate colors and details – but you’ll see in person that the experience of it is quite different than a photo. The colors are so rich – I made that midnight blue night sky rather than black, as it felt more aligned with the energy. In person it actually shifts from deep teal, to teal and royal blues, to darker areas mixed with a little black to create the variations. I call it “Harmony Is…” and the image of the white rabbit and young bear sitting on clouds in the heavens extending arms to one another in friendship are the focal point. You can see the stars that energetically connect their outstretched paws merge as a heart at center, while two other star hearts in the Cosmos are on either side of them. The rabbit holds a dandelion, with little puffs of seeds blowing up into the Cosmos, while a perfect rainbow emerges from it and they transmute into the four hexagon woven symbol that came to me to create for that balance at center….from there the rainbow emanates out into a rainbow nebula that fills the whole back (this is one of the things that really doesn’t show up the greatest in photos) and there are gold, white and colored stars scattered throughout. Actually the gold I used for the hexagons, stars, constellations, and energy is metallic so it shimmers in the light – again you’ll see that in person. On the sides I created an extension of the clouds from the front with more loose flowy rainbows that merge at back with the nebula. And on the left I created the Lepus and Ursa Major constellations – Hare/Rabbit and Great Bear…they appear as if running along the rainbow. The inside is painted in varying teals and blues.”
Custom Magick Keepsake Chests are available here: The Magick Rabbit
Then we move into the second custom commission – a sacred tattoo design that was an extremely challenging, yet super potent cocreation for both of us.
As I shared with my client: “There was a sense of great importance and even more surrender because of the magnitude I could feel coming through it and you. I have to admit, at first, ego was ‘hoping’ I would be able to hear/see what was intended for this…then after embracing that humanness, I listened to my higher self that wanted me to just trust and it would come. There was a feeling of words saying, ‘You do know, but you have to let go fully. Drop into essence and believe. Allow it to move through. It will then be you.’ “
Because my client had tattoos already in a particular style of powerful simplicity, boldness, and indigenous quality, I needed to stay within this energy, while not compromising the essence of this portal and also drawing upon a boundless Cosmic energy that needed to merge spirit in Earthy flesh.
Her visions and messaging from those working through her spoke loudly about how we were working with a very expansive energy that needed to come through a multi-dimensional doorway with 3-D effect and continuum of movement. So embodying the contrast of simple complexity was quite a task and surrender indeed was needed. In fact, this piece was ever-more drawn out because I really had to wait for each piece and only sit down when the doorways opened to feed through me the ingredients for the vision.
The image you see is a series of Star Wheels – a medicine wheel mandala that incorporates the Star Nation.
Without going into the full meaning of this piece, here are some of the elements you might discover while gazing upon it and can then draw your own energetic messaging from:
- An inner medicine wheel represented with the turtle shell – so the entire center is the back of the turtle – very simple lines and the inner smaller circles are part of the shell uniqueness, but double as mini wheels and orbiting planets in the Cosmos
- At center of the turtle shell/star wheel is the spiral/nautilus for that continuous flow and evolution energy. The spiral interconnects with the shell’s inner circle/design between each section of the shell and also the tendrils or threads that move out around the outer wheels – reflections of the golden threads my client envisioned
- I created all of these tendrils to feel alive and like sprouting new life from the plant kingdom, but also having a cosmic nebular spiral effect. So I added a few simple leaves on some of the tendrils inside the shell on the spiral and outside around each outer wheel
- I wanted the star wheels to have the essence and recognition as a wheel, but also to double subtly as more. There are four outside the center, fifth one, creating the four directions. I added two hawk feathers – a client connection and messengers between worlds – for a subtle hawk presence at both sides of center to give the effect of those directions without creating lines and down the center the stars rise from the medicine bowl below, along with three symbols my client wanted to have included that also are subtle in creating the center of the four directions.
- The bottom star wheel I felt needed to be larger as it will sit on the sacrum – or sacred portal area – and I felt this is where a medicine bowl would be. A primitive healing hand or hand of the Divine Creator rises from within and holds or reaches toward the bowl. The bowl is filled with stars and another of my client’s symbols amongst those stars. Then the another of my client’s symbols is right above it with a third just above that leading to center. Then stars continue to rise from there. This portal area and star wheel feels to be the gateway and so it infuses spirit in body reflected and both Earth and Cosmos bridged together and creating alchemy. The tendrils spiral around the wheel and I created an effect of movement and emergence with the subtle circular spiral rising from bottom and integrating into the circle subtly. Later I noticed how this created the feel/look of a bee hive and I loved that symbolism and how honey is the nectar of life and the hexagons are such potent symbols.
- The two star wheels at either side have the other two symbols my client wanted in them and each of them also surrounded by the live tendrils/nebula spirals and stars. I then felt they needed motion as well to feel like those moving or orbiting planets and so the lighter and descending wheel shadows are to reflect rotating movement in the Cosmos. Everything also feeling like rotating atoms or Cosmic matter.
- Then the top star wheel again is tethered also like the others with the tendrils, but these wrapping around to create that feeling of motion, parts of the wheel, and rotating atom-like nature. Instead of repeating the similar movement of any of the other three, this one has rotating, open circular matter creating a link or doorway effect
- Each star wheel is its own separate portal to other dimensions, but in totality they are part of a larger multi-dimensional grid – they have ability to give and receive through their doorways.
- And last, you will see that on both sides near the bottom there are stars creating two designs – one a constellation and the other created to appear like one. The right is Ursa Minor – also known as the Little Bear constellation. This was included because of a Cosmic bear connection that came through the messaging we discussed. The Bear constellations are very connected to the Arcturians as well. And on the left, jaguar energy was incorporated, but rather than do any literal or abstract parts of the jaguar’s physical nature, I opted to create the jaguar paw with stars, to balance the constellation on the right, making it appear like its own constellation, but more so to reflect how the jaguar is a dimensional gateway keeper and timeline guardian. What I saw after the fact was how the overall effect of these constellation additions created the feel of a dream catcher to the overall design, which I loved as another unifying tie-in.
The first photo I shared is a very straightforward design photo and the one below is in natural outdoor light.
As I shared with my client, “What I found very interesting was, as soon as I went outside to photograph it in the natural light, the white little feather you see by it blew over to me.”
That gave me chills as confirmation and a Cosmic smile.
The third photo I took has a magickal effect of enhancing and casting more light in areas and darker in others, which creates the feeling of movement and as if the light is swirling along with the design.
Perhaps these images will speak to you, invite a deeper awareness, take you on a journey, or water a seed within you to expand even more – bridges to the heart of the Cosmos within.
Whimsical Wednesdays Dragons & Mythical Beings: Releasing Primal Patterns & Revealing Dreamscapes – Part 3
Today’s blog post concludes the intuitively guided series of connected dreamscapes that felt important to share, as they are layered with coded messages beyond what I’m even reflecting in interpretation. I’ve been sharing them after having integration time and letting them process behind the scenes, so in fact today’s dream is actually one I had on the night of Tuesday 2/2/21 of last week. You can read or revisit Part 1 and Part 2 at the links provided.
This dream is a little bit different and also connects my most recent sacred tattoo design project I’ve been working on, as you’ll see – I love how everything is always interconnected and aligned in timing.
On 2/2 the dream took me through a sequence of really big magick happening. I can’t even begin to describe what all was unfolding, but it was layered and all-encompassing, spanning across the Earth collective, but in a multi-dimensional way. I remember looking down in my hands and seeing a book in them that I received from an unknown/anonymous or unseen source. All I saw on the cover was, “Part 1,” in large lettering. I saw that there were two other books that had been given to two other people and theirs read, “Part 2 and Part 3” in the same big lettering. I remember knowing one of the people who had the second book – a student of mine – and the third was someone more distantly connected, but connected nonetheless.
Telepathically I was given the message that the books contained alchemical instructions for collective change, woven into story form. We each had been given the books because they were part of our path to help decipher, invoke as embodiment, and share/spread.
Then big animals appeared – again like in Part 1 – but this time singularly and slowly. The first I remember seeing more clearly was some kind of giant, ancient bird-like creature. I said an inward message on a telepathic level to whom ever was making them appear that was something like, “These others are not enough (referring to the animals being sent my way). If you want more from me you’ll need to bring on more.” Then that bird-like creature mutated into a huge dragon with an energetic force like nothing else. I had no fear. I was ready for something I felt was coming next.
The dragon infused me with its energy. I’m not sure if it blew it into me through its etheric, fiery breath or if it just transferred it through the strength of its emanation, but it was so massive in strength that I was pushed back a few steps by the thrust of its power. And as I stepped back, keeping solid balance without falling over, my legs sunk into the Earth with their touch and where I stood, a deep hole was created beneath me by the energy I now had within and that made me heavier and larger energetically than my small frame would otherwise seem to embody. The dirt felt very cool and soft – almost light like flour. The hole created by the energy impact was like one a dragon or dinosaur might be able to create with thrusts of their weight and power. So, it was as if the dragon and I had become one.
The dragon then told me that it was time to use all of my powers to support the collective. I was to activate all of my inner parts and then transfer them to others so we could create change – create the next Earth experience.
An ivory tipped wand appeared in my hand, which looked exactly like the one I have and was holding in some of the photos from my Winter Solstice Visual Spell to Activate the Light Within blog. I was then waving the wand and pointing it at person after person, transferring and activating within them, the same within that was awakened from the activation transferred to me.
And the dream ended, or that’s all I remember.
Of course the giant and prehistoric animal theme carrying both primal and primordial energy continues to weave through with the ancient bird-like creature and the dragon. And although there is some personal messaging in this and the other dreams, there is still the collective symbolism shining through.
Simplistically, the three part books spoke to the three part blogs, but in more complexity they feel to foretell that there may be three parts or processes collectively to go through, as the Earth evolves into this new paradigm. They also feel like different groups of souls that will be involved in each layer, in their own time, or coming of age based on the gifts they carry. Each person given a book felt to represent each of these soul groups energetically, so they were simply coming through an individual as a symbol of that energy. The three parts also felt like a personal message layered in there that has to do with my individual path and work to be shared, as its own piece.
The multi-dimensional big magick happening at the beginning feels like the alchemical process we’re involved in that will continue to expand and reveal itself.
I really loved the part where I said, “If you want more from me, you’ll need to bring on more,” referencing that what was being given so far although impressive, simply wasn’t enough. This spoke not just to my own courage and readiness for the bigger stuff, but as a representative of one of the groups, or collective at large since in fact these feel like collective dream messages, that we are all saying on some level that we’re ready for much more. “Give me all you got.” 😉
Enter the powerful dragon.
The dragon infusing me with its energy felt once again to be a DNA activation, much like the T-Rex of Part 1 had done through my crown chakra.
The hole beneath me felt like a deepening and grounding into greater embodiment and while larger in energy, the dirt remained soft and fluffy…So, in fact the core, root, and underground layers we’re peeling away are not as dense and sticky moist as we thought, but instead are easier to move through and lighter than we would have imagined, once we penetrate the outer layers protecting the soft, vulnerable core.
Things only seem hard, impossible, or slow, but in fact once we embrace our authentic powers, then the process can be lighter than we imagined.
The hole in the Earth felt like a transformation to the surface of things, morphing into a new terrain of experience that runs deeper than meets the eye.
The two of us becoming one – dragon and me – is a transmutational merging of energies, as well as the difference between a dragon slayer and dragon master.
The dragon slayer sees herself/himself to be separate from the dragon and that all it stands for in its primordial ways is something to fight, conquer, or destroy. These are the enemy. So the two will always be separate and one will always lose or win in a vicious, repetitive circle.
The dragon master sees no difference between the dragon and herself/himself and all that it stands for is a part of both of them. Therefore there is no enemy. Nothing to fight, conquer, or destroy. Only something to embrace, love, and understand for its value. So there are no longer two – only One. And they merge more powerful than either ever was on their own.
So my facing the dragon without fear and taking in its fiery energy transference, spoke to that transmutation into wholeness of power. Again, feeling much more collective than simply something I was individually going through and yet creating a trickle effect by doing so, myself.
The dragon saying it was time to use all of my powers and inner parts and transfer them to others spoke to me how we keep being told that the time is now. That what we’ve been waiting for and whom we’ve been waiting for is here now…is us. And there’s no greater time than to bring forth all that you are, shine your light, and by doing so will be supporting others to do the same. Transfer the power to one another through your individual gifts. Share the nuggets of awareness, spread the love, speak the language as only you can, through your specific frequency. Realize that every bravely kind encounter activates something within each other. This change from the inside will create the change on the outside.
The wand was an activation of awakening to everyone encountered. It speaks to being a conduit for love and awakening thread to thread of the tapestry, each in their own way. Some perhaps more visual and outwardly active, and others behind the scenes or quietly active. It also seemed to reiterate or confirm the guidance I received in sharing that Visual Spell blog to help activate the light within. Although this dream came after that, there is no time in the dream world and one might even say that this dragon dream experience was before that one and what I did through that Winter Solstice blog was a result of the activation transfer and message received “later.”
I find the primal or primordial energy thread in these dreams to be an alchemical key to our collective unfolding. And they are showing up in waking life as well. There have been other smaller confirmations of dinosaurs, dragons, and ancient winged creatures, but far too many to document all, so I focus on the main ones that speak louder. As I shared about the T-Rex statue and Dinosaur Museum sign confirmations in Part 1, the primal energy of Boojum our male cat in Part 2, and for Part 3 the waking life confirmations of these came through my recent sacred tattoo design project, as well as a close encounter in the forest.
The former being another first for some “Spiritual Skin” creations.
Synchronously, I’ve been working on a pair of sacred dragon tattoo designs for a mother and daughter. Each to have their own dragon and energy, but connected via some of the elements woven into the designs. The daughter is a Fire Dragon and the mother is a Water Dragon in Chinese Astrology. We added their birth or chosen flowers, symbols and Runes for their elements, the Moon and Sun/Fire Ball, and some connective Runes for both of them along with a touch of Cosmic Starry essence. (I might share more photos/info in another blog post upcoming.)
One is a Water Dragon Fae Queen and one is a Fire Dragon Empress.
This project was commissioned long before the dream and the timing of their creation was in order of completing the ones before them. This placed the dragons at the time, and integration after, of the dream. Fire and Water feeling especially potent to the alchemy of merging these powerful elements. Every time I work on a design it not only feels important for the person it is created for, but always carries collective support as a portal of activation on all fronts through that individual’s activation.
Much like the message of the dream to share the power with others that we activate within ourselves.
Then there was the close encounter, which took place this past weekend. We went snow shoeing after and during snow storms where we are in very fresh, deep snow. We have a huge forest and mountainous area right behind the place we’re staying, much like at home where we can hike or snow shoe out the back door.
We took some photos along the day’s adventure, which included this one:
It felt like a deliberate, perfect structure and the energy was strange. I was wondering in the back of my mind of what creature might have made it and often joke with Dave about Sasquatch on our hikes. We found some odd tracks that led to this structure that were not human. We thought perhaps a large animal had made its way through the very deep snow by what they appeared like…maybe a moose. It was a very quiet day and we could hear the trees creaking in the wind and no one else out, unlike the last weekend where we had come across several people. I had a strange feeling, but couldn’t put my finger on it.
Then I posted the photo, not thinking more of it, and a magickal friend of mine in Ireland relayed that it was an actual Big Foot/Sasquatch structure and that according to “experts” the cross marks the perimeter end of their territory. I used to watch many of the sightings programs back in the day, but had forgotten much of these kinds of details. Then two more confirmations of the same information came in from separate sources. It confirmed the feeling I had and while many might not believe in these beings or think they belong in the mythical creatures category of fireside storytelling, there are those of us who feel otherwise being that we live in a multi-dimensional world where portals, different timelines, and otherworlds merge. These make anything possible.
Regardless of fact or fiction, the connection that was brought to awareness of a primitive and primal creature with ancient or prehistoric connections, still held the theme of these dreams.
Now the energies and encounters were crossing dream into waking life and the merging of hidden into the light continues.
Interestingly, a few days after the dragon activation dream, I had a wedding dream. The dream was my own wedding happening all over in a different way, but again what’s mine is yours, so to speak. 🙂 It was being orchestrated on some other level from behind the scenes (much like I felt ours on Summer Solstice was) and being taken care of and put together without my having any part in it, but showing up. It was taking place in an expansive space with many people and an other-dimensional feel to it. I remember thinking this is odd, I’m already married, already had the wedding, but it was happening on a different plane of existence parallel to the other.
This isn’t Part 4, but a new beginning from all of this – a merging of parts, like the marriage of yin and yang partners, a symphony of new and primal/primordial notes, the partnering of elemental dragons within a family, and dream and waking life as one.
I believe we will continue to experience more cross-overs the more we create bridges through the portals of our hearts. Then we’ll realize separation is a choice and not a given.
Please take or leave what you choose from any of this. I share as I’m guided. I’m just being my part.
Changes & Clarification on Websites & Workshops
Just a heads up that I’m in the process of making changes to prepare for what’s upcoming, as well as to close doors on the old. I found it synchronous that today, as I made the phone calls and took the steps to put these in motion, was actually the day seven years ago that I first released my e-book version of Spiritual Skin. It wasn’t long after, that I then made available the hard copy and kindle version and today I’ve put in motion releasing that associated website and email address for my book, altogether. I’ve also released my old Tania Marie website and now you can access this blog via either domains of www.taniamarie.com or the current you know of www.taniamarieartist.wordpress.com.
For now, I’m keeping my associated email address for that domain name, as it’s connected to too many things I don’t have time and focus to handle currently, but you will not be able to contact me via the Spiritual Skin email.
While the website for this first book I self-published will no longer be, you will still be able to purchase copies on Amazon – the only way to do so going forward.
Extra reiteration that that part of my life had come full circle were reflected in at least two books I know of that came out after mine – one that actually used my book title in theirs coming out almost 2 years later – and one recently that came out last year that ironically I was sent by the author’s marketing help to potentially review. I haven’t yet been able to read the book, but in scanning it, I was intrigued how similar it was to my own.
We are all collectively connected and tapping into the same pool of energy, but my time swimming there I now release to others.
That, in and of itself, feels like a huge refresh and reset.
You may have also noticed that I’ve deleted nearly all the pages of this blog site as well, and it now only contains my blog sharing and general and contact info.
So, those are some big changes that feel good, with more in time to come.
I continue to receive requests on things now and then, as I can’t delete everything out there in the world-wide web, but I’ve remained focused on only what resonates to move forward with. I am grateful to have a small network of referrals I can recommend to people in need and whom I’m unable to support at this time. Unfortunately, I don’t have recommendations of tattoo designers, but I do know wonderful tattoo artists I’ve personally worked with who are tapped in and create wonderful pieces. I always highly recommend taking time to search people out with intention, as you’ll always be led to the perfect person.
That brings me to the last Summer and Fall workshops that I’m offering.
I received some questions that I wanted to share my answer to for everyone, in order to clarify things if in fact you were curious as well.
Although I will not be offering classes anymore after August’s Reiki ones, I’m committed for life to provide support and answer questions for all of my students. I know that there was concern that if someone took my Reiki workshop they wouldn’t have what they called “mentorship” with this since I wasn’t teaching, but my ceasing to teach does not close the door on past students who have need for support with questions.
My students are always able to contact me for that. I’m simply not going to be attuning NEW students after August. I hope that is clarifying for anyone who had concern.
That said, in two weeks from this Saturday will be the last opportunity to register for June 23rd’s Reiki 1 & 2 Accelerated Workshop. June 9th is the deadline for that. So if you’re on the fence, that’s just a little reminder date to keep note of.
You still have opportunity to pre-register at discount for the August 25th Reiki 3 Master Teacher Workshop, as that deadline is July 4th with final registration ringing in on August 11th.
All info and registration can be found here: Summer 2018 Workshops
As for the Fall Equinox “Living a More Magickal Life” with Laura Bruno and myself, that pre-registration deadline to receive discount is coming up on June 21st Summer Solstice. The workshop is 1/3 full. Final registration is September 15th.
All details and registration can be found here: Living a More Magickal Life
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported my journey and to everyone who has invited me along on theirs. ❤
Sacred Tattoo Designs On Hiatus

Answers About Sacred Tattoo Designs For While I’m Away
This last design I completed feels like the perfect send off before heading out for activating and igniting new beginnings from the core essence within.
I’m sharing it along with some answers to questions that I’ve been receiving, so that hopefully things will be clear while I’m unable to assist.
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about sacred tattoo designs in these last weeks before I head off on my 3 month sabbatical, even though I’ve posted several messages on it.
So just to help clarify things for everyone, as likely timing hasn’t aligned for everyone to see the messages, I thought I’d share details again.
I will not be available for questions, emails, and messages regarding tattoos beginning tomorrow.
That said, while I am away between September 1st and November 30th you can still place a deposit for a tattoo design at my website here:
There is a waiting list that has already started for when I return, which will be December 1st.
I can maybe squeeze in one more December client, if you’d like a design done by end of the year, but we’re really looking at January of 2016 for booking.
Don’t wait until I return to schedule a design, unless you don’t have any time restraints on when you need it, as people will have continued booking on the calendar while I’m away and so you’ll be placed next on the list, from where ever I’m booked out at that time.
There is likely going to be a rate increase when I return, beginning 2016, so if you place a deposit between now and December, you’ll lock in the current rate.
If you have a budget, we can work around that to ensure supporting your needs, but just be aware that this limits the size and detailing possible. I have been able to successfully stay within budgets when that is provided.
Size and detail will determine the amount of time it takes so I can only provide guesstimates on this from my end. So if in fact you have a budget, just let me know that when you place your deposit in the comments and we will discuss details when I’m ready to begin working on your design.
I create designs. Your tattoo artist will do the inking.
I only work in pencil. Color will be chosen between you and your tattoo artist.
Consulting is part of the process so when you place your deposit, we will then discuss all details when I get to your design, as I do them in order of deposits received.
I work in flow of the energy presenting itself and sometimes even time scheduling may shift slightly, as I can’t determine how things will progress with the channeling, how long the consulting will take, and when I hear back from clients. It ALWAYS, however, and I mean ALWAYS, aligns perfectly.
Any other questions likely are answered at the link above in the comments about the process.
Please read the details so you understand how it all works, as chances are, the answers to your questions can be found there if you take the time to read through them.
Thank you so much to everyone for your interest in my design work. It is something I am very passionate about supporting people with in co-creation and I look forward to continuing that journey when I return!

I already have a waiting list started for December, which is almost half full so don’t wait until the day I return to schedule one, if in fact you’re wanting one done by end of the year or a specific time frame, as people are already booking my time.
You’ll still be able to book your space on the waiting list while I’m off for 3 months (September 1st – November 30th) by placing your deposit at the link provided below. This will lock in the current rate, as there is likely going to be a rate change when I return.
Book your space on the waiting list here: Life Changing Tattoos
- I did end up having room to accommodate one more client joining me on an Intuitive Energy Guidance 5-week intensive. If you’d like to start this right away, it needs to be scheduled and started next week in order to complete the sessions before I head off September 1st. Otherwise we can look into scheduling you in when I return.
Sessions are done by phone providing spiritual coaching that moves energy to help heal your body and mind and achieve your goals. Each one-hour session has multiple purposes: providing practical tools to help you achieve your goals, exploring your hidden truths and shadows, and providing energetic support that will help you remove blocks and fears, move energy, move you forward, help you manifest, and foster deep healing.
To learn more about these empowering phone sessions working one-on-one with me and to schedule your intensive, please visit: Intuitive Energy Guidance
Thoughts & Reminders Before Heading Out 7/9 – 7/12 ~ Last Chance Opportunities Through August 31st
Many things to celebrate these days. Perhaps for many of you too, from what I am hearing and feeling. So much is coming to fruition for many and a deepening of happiness experienced because of your dedicated work.
Today not only have I shared the happy news about Joy and Cosmo, but I am feeling Gaia in my heart strongly, as it would have been our 7 year anniversary together.
I miss your strong physical presence Gaia, but am grateful for your continued love and support you surround me and Terra with. Thank you for your committed service and responsible compassion you share.
I’m also celebrating some personal milestones of transformation and renewal taking place. How about you? Are you feeling this to be a rich opportunistic time period in your life where things are, or are about to flourish?
I’m experiencing a very creatively fertile time period where everything keeps shifting daily, there are no end results seen, and only each moment to paint as I desire. I can feel how much things are going to change over the course of the next 4 – 6 months and right now I’m anchoring in my authentic reflection of what that feels like to me. I’m also enjoying a shift of focus in my life and drawing upon my true nature more and more, by welcoming in things I’ve been desiring for a long time, and also declaring my personal essence, without worry about how that may feel to others.
Even though at times things seem on stand-still, I know that everything is aligning and percolating to unleash itself and that’s because I keep moving forward with conviction to my truth and action to support that. I feel that is key if you want to manifest things, along with making sure you are acting consistently on all levels of emotion, thought, belief, and action.
As I take moments to have gratitude and share honor for these special things I recognize in my life, I hope it is a reminder to each of you to do the same in your own lives. We often don’t acknowledge how far we’ve come, give ourselves loving encouragement, or take time to cherish each of the treasures, both hidden and obvious in our lives.
Tomorrow I head out to British Columbia to immerse in the land there, the farmhouse, and the beautiful energy of Hillary’s horses, and will be away through Sunday the 12th. I feel this will be a very potent activation of energy in all of the lives whom are coming together for this, including myself.
I’m very much looking forward to this long awaited journey that has gone through many transformations and shifts of its own. I’m also excited to connect with Hillary, the owner of Epona Rise Retreat Centre, finally in person.
Our extended four-day retreat has morphed into a mini two-day retreat, due to personal matters that evolved in Hillary’s life. Amazingly, we were able to still create the space and we have shifted into more of a private, intimate experience that will be shared by a beautiful, small gathering of women sharing the energy of this time and space. This will include Reiki training, time with the horses and Hillary, and sacred intentional work that organically flows with the energy, as it always does.
I’ve been away so much this year for both personal and work journeys, but this marks the last trip for now (at least that I have planned). This has made things quite full in my schedule and along with energetic processes being more deep, has extended the length of time needed for a lot of my work recently.
Here are a few reminders, as I prepare to head out tomorrow:
- I have availability for just one more tattoo design client between now and August 31st. If you’d like to have a sacred design created with me and need it before December, this is the last opportunity I can provide before I take my 3 month sabbatical. If you’re not in a rush and can wait until the end of the year or beginning of 2016, then you can still place a deposit here: Sacred Tattoo Designs and be scheduled in for then, even while I’m away. I thank you again to all current clients for your patience, as I’m running a couple weeks behind due to more time needed on designs and my being away. I also haven’t had time to post designs, so intend to share a montage of some of them soon, together.
- I have availability for one more person to receive spiritual and energy guidance during a five-week intensive before August 31st. The last possible day to schedule is the week of July 26th for this, otherwise if you can wait until I return, we can look into scheduling you in then. Here is information on that: One-On-One Support
- I have two, last Reiki workshop opportunities remaining for locals or anyone in the area, or wanting to travel here. There is an upcoming private Reiki 3 Master Teacher workshop that’s been opened to others on Tuesday, July 28th. You’re welcome to join if you’ve already received your Reiki 1 & 2 certification either by myself or another teacher, or if you’d like to come for free review, if you’ve already gone through this training with me. There is also an upcoming private Reiki 1 & 2 workshop that’s been opened to others on Sunday, August 16th. Otherwise, you are welcome to schedule a private workshop, but it must be scheduled before September 1st, at which time i’ll be on sabbatical for 3 months. Payment plans available.

Thoughts & Updates As I Head Out to Peru ~ I’ll Be Offline March 11 – 23
I haven’t been back very long from Iceland, but I’m off again. Seems my soul’s plan is to be in a lot of powerful activation and integration modes this year.
It may seem like this doesn’t coincide with being in a #9 Hermit Year, but it in fact does, as for me these experiences are a very personal and inward thing that are taking place. So, even though I may be actively out there and traveling at times, I am in a very centered, inner mode that is still and peaceful, doing a lot of processing and internal rewiring and recalibrating.
It feels much like being in a cosmic capsule that is journeying around and taking in all and only that which nurtures my beingness.
This reminds me of the movie, The Fountain, which just so happens to have a lot of synchronous alignments to my life right now, including the Mayan soul connection I have and that I spoke of in wearing my Mayan ká a yaán tah etched ring, meaning “to be reborn” in Iceland.
If you know this movie, you will understand:
For some, Hermit mode may literally mean withdrawal. And for others, it is an essence/energy you embody where ever you are. However, I can tell you that when I’m on my own (anywhere) and at home, I am VERY much in my own world and wanting my own personal time without a lot of interaction.
It’s been a whirlwind these days, but richly packed. It feels as if lifetimes of experiences and activations are taking place in a very short time.
I think many of you would agree it’s a very potent experience of late, and what I’m seeing is an increased amount of people claiming and embodying their gifts and courageously stepping into their empowerment more and more these days. It’s really fantastic and I’m so in awe of the courage being embodied.
Some of what I’ll be engaged in while away in Peru will be some pretty major downloads and activations that while taking place individually, are being focused collectively to support the greater good.
Our group will be experiencing some powerful initiations, including learning how to channel Cosmic energy through our Cosmic Being, as we receive the Solar Path of the Ancestral Andean World and Master Path of the Masters of the Incas: Pre-Inca Path from our Shaman, Amaru. All this to empower the real Cosmic Magician awaiting within.
I’m excited to both receive and support this process. I will be attuning Amaru as a Reiki Master Teacher before we begin these other initiations. He is already a Reiki Master Teacher, but is wanting to receive this energetic exchange from me at our first ceremony at the sacred site of Caral – the highest altar of the oldest civilization of the Americas – to activate the initiation proceedings he will then administer.
Will share more when I return, but while away I will again be offline and unavailable until I return on the 23rd of March. I will be leaving tomorrow, the 11th.
I leave with a full heart, as yesterday was the official adoption day of Cosmo, which seems perfect to ignite this “Cosmic” journey. He has a forever safe and loving home for life and I’m committed to getting him all the support he needs to see him walking again. Yesterday was a good day at the vet while I got him his third round of acupuncture and new x-rays. He’d gained some more weight, which we’ve been trying to help him do since he arrived. So we’re on our way to his weight goal, which shouldn’t be hard since he is so happy and has his appetite in full gear now – always wanting to eat. He also was standing a lot on his own and moving around upright a lot. I’ve also made appointments for new forms of therapy for when I return, which I’ll share more about when I get back, but I’m optimistic about it.
I also have some cool things lined up for myself when I get back, including getting my Garden Tower in gear, and some other meaningful embodiments to put in place that feel right at this time. Everything feels like it all has its sequence I am guided to follow as activations, one by one. Wonder if I’ll light up like a Christmas tree soon LOL! I’m not sure what’s the plan. I just know to follow it.
I’m feeling like this journey to Peru is both an opening and closure to a lot of things, so I’m curious as to what awaits me there and will unfold after.
In the meantime, here are things to keep in mind while I’m away. These are the scheduled events (I’ve just updated them again) that are going on, as well as dates I will be away this year, which I have scheduled so far, and will be unavailable for services during these times:
