Singing Plants at Damanhur


I love enchantment and synchronicity! I’m reblogging miss Laura Bruno’s post here, as it reminded me again of the amazing Temples of Humankind that are in Damanhur and this magickal place I do hope to visit one day. I did a short post on these amazing temples and yes, synchronously this “Singing Plants at Damanhur” video a while back, but felt with Laura’s post that a resurgence of this “piece of enchantment” could use a comeback. Laura adds a wonderful article alongside the video, offering scientific validations (something that is increasingly happening as the world awakens). I hope you enjoy exploring the Temples (at the link below) and listening to the Music of Nature. One more validation that all of creation is alive, valuable, connected, and worthy of our honor and compassion.

Here is the link to my previous post: Pieces of Enchantment – Damanhur and Beyond

New Crystal Friends, How They Assist Us, And A Thank You Discount

High-Vibrational Himalayan Ice Quartz with Rainbow Inclusion

One of the powerful tools people resonate with and are turning to for support in these shifting times are crystals. Like with anything, what you feel drawn to is a mirror of your own power and divinity and can assist you in reconnecting and remembering the Source of this within you. When we are having challenge, or there are veils, blocks and fears keeping us from “seeing” our light, then “Essence” tools can become useful in drawing them forth with greater clarity. The key is in not being attached to specific things, but understanding the gifts they can help to reveal with perhaps more speedy and efficient access to them.

A lot of crystal friends have moved on to their new homes recently and in their place I have been slowly updating my Etsy Shop, Crystal Illumination, with new ones.

You can check out the latest crystal friends here: Crystal Illumination

I have also added a special to the shop. Receive a “Thank You” Coupon with every purchase. After you place an order you will receive a Coupon Code that you can apply to your next order for 10% off your entire purchase. Offer good until 8/31/13. 

Keep checking back, as little by little new crystals are being offered, and I have a large group of Crystal Illuminations paintings to come within the next month, along with a “Free Offer With Each Purchase.” I’m always focused on service and fun! So stay tuned.

Also, if you’ve been a fan of the Lemurian L.O.V.E. Seed Crystals, just so you know, I only have 8 of these pendulums left from the original 50. They have been a favorite among clients, as well as myself. 🙂 So if they call to you, you may want to snatch one up while you can.

I thought I would offer this information again, as it feels aligned with some questions and comments that have rolled around recently, and is a way to provide some insights to people that are new to crystals on how they can support us and my feelings on the energy source of crystals as well.

I shared this info in a post a while back, Understanding Crystals and Their Role in Our Lives – A Lesson of Honor:

Where do I feel the metaphysical properties of crystals come from and how do they affect us? – That is a complex question that I can only answer through my heart and feelings. The energies come from Universal Consciousness itself, from All That Is, from their resonation with the purity of Essence and natural attunement evolved through the Earth’s consciousness, infused with Cosmic energy. Many have also been infused with information from ancient civilizations including Lemuria, Atlantis, Sumeria, and so on, throughout what we think of as “time” and also embody extraterrestrial energies, holding record keeping information, knowledge and understanding that is multi-dimensional, unconditional and boundless.

First off, crystals are living beings, alive and full of Universal Life Force Energy, just like everything that exists. They each possess unique “personality” signatures that develop through the process of their evolution. Some come from within the Earth, others from the Cosmos, or blendings of each (as in the case of moldavite and tektites that are created from Extraterrestrial/Cosmic Essence by means of things like meteors that fuse with the Earth’s crust).

Crystals resonate their Universal energy at quantum levels in harmony with human energy. Their internal atom structures that create sound, color, light, etc., vibrate at different speeds like satellites, radars, computers…and humans are like receivers that tune into the vibrations. Crystals vibrate on frequencies in harmony with all levels of our consciousness, as if playing unique notes that can affect each person relative to their make-up and resonance with those notes. Crystals are naturally in harmony with the life force even in their raw, unformed state. They have precise internal make-ups that keep them constantly and consistently in tune and in harmony. They don’t actually hold electrical charges, but can produce them. They can keep you in tune through their own harmonic synchronization with the primal energy of life, which then in turn keeps you more in harmony with life itself. Each one is a unique and distinct individual, as are we, with its own harmonic frequency rhythms.

When we are willing to receive this energy and exercise our Essence, we can contact the energies from which the entire Universe is comprised and crystals aid us to do so, being such clear channels of this energy. This is why crystals and other minerals are so powerful and must be used through the highest consciousness of the individual for the highest good. This is imperative. The Universal energies contained within each is activated and directed by interaction with the same. Misuse and abuse of crystals has taken place over “time” and they are in need of our helping them to balance and reattune, which is why they call to our hearts and need specific partners and keepers to work with and to assist. Sometimes the connections are life long, or “lives long,” and sometimes we are channels to move them to where they need to go or to assist along part of their journey, just as they assist us – all with the bigger picture intent to assist the Collective Earth.

They each vibrate a different energy frequency depending on their make-up – for example, their  colors resonate with corresponding Chakra energies, and specific types hold varying vibrational resonance. They ARE Universal Life Force Energy within crystalline and mineral structures that embody codes of collective existence that are timeless. They are here to aid us in tuning our own vibrations to that frequency and supporting us to remember who and where we come from and to harmonize with the Earth and Cosmos. They can help support specific energies, act as healing guides, support inner growth, amplify things, bring things to light, help with clarity, strengthen, etc..but overall they help us to stay in tune, clear and balance all levels emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually. They are representative of wholeness and can help us to remember our own….

To accept and welcome a crystal into your life is an honor, which they as well mirror, and is not one to take lightly. It is a responsibility and commitment not to abuse. This is the way that all relationships should be viewed…our relationship to crystals, animals, plants, the Earth, the Cosmos, to each other, and to ourselves.

The Power of Silence – Snow Leopard’s Message through Visionary Art


The Power of Silence

The Power of Silence by Tania Marie
~ click on image to enlarge and magnify ~

He who does not understand your silence will probably not understand your words.

~Elbert Hubbard

As always, it is a joy to be able to bring a vision to life and this most recent commissioned painting provided me opportunity to channel not only a personal expression for whom it was being created, but one that collectively had meaning too. I was excited by the synchronicity of this request to paint a snow leopard, as it had been on my radar to be included in my series, Universal ARKitecture. So this piece felt aligned on multiple layers and serving a greater good, which is always something I put out as intention.

I was so excited that this painting would have two-fold purpose. It seems that most things these days is about synergy, everything aligning as a cohesive tapestry, and depth within simplicity.

This painting happens to also be perfectly aligned in being the #9 painting in my series (the only one that the original will not be available, but prints are), as its message and symbolism is very connected to the symbolism of the number nine and its association with “The Hermit” in Tarot.

For starters, snow leopards carry the message and medicine of focused silence, true strength and power, gracefulness, and independence. “Coincidentally” they live in, and are well-adapted to, the remote areas of Asia’s Himalayan Mountains (the area I have been researching for my own personal sacred journey) and create their dens in rocky caverns and crevices in the high altitudes of the mountainous and snowy region. They are extremely rare and in fact are endangered species under protection. As a very solitary creature, they only come together with another of its kind to breed, but otherwise remain on their own.

Because of their “hermit” like nature, they whisper to us the “power of silence.” They know its value and also the power of mindfulness, being observant, present, aware, and focused all by going within your inner silence. They understand good use of purposeful retreat in order to prepare for the new. From this place, you are alert and ready to embrace opportunity when it presents itself, having the advantage of the wisdom gained. They also know how to conserve energy and to use it discerningly and efficiently. They tell us to avoid talking too much about future goals until you have achieved them, but realize that you have all the energy and strength to very effectively manifest them and will be able to perform well under any circumstance. They warn not to take on too much though and make sure it is aligned with who you are at heart. Keeping focused on what your inner guidance shares as most important will help you to pinpoint your attention and energy and when you do, go forth with all of yourself, but make sure to keep balanced and rest and play as well. Know that when you are out on a limb that like the snow leopard, you can land on your strong, broad feet. Be mindful of not taking on more obligations and commitments. Snow leopards teach us to be fearless leaders and to use our power wisely and effectively. When they show up for you they reflect that clairvoyance is a natural gift you have that can be used to integrate your shadow and make productive use of all of your parts working together in wholeness, rather than in separation, which is counter-productive. They also message you to trust your intuition to guide you, as it is right, and not to be afraid to “stalk” your dreams. Go after what you are passionate about, but do use caution and discernment when “out of” your own natural territory. Like the snow leopard, it may at times be wise to blend with your environment, lay low for a while, and come to understand Divine timing for revealing yourself.

For those of you familiar with The Hermit energy from Tarot, you may see some similarities with the snow leopard.

Much like the snow leopard, The Hermit stands alone on the top of a mountain with a lantern in his hand. The Hermit symbolizes soul-searching, introspection, inner guidance, searching within, meditative time, connecting with Source and centering self, time of self-discovery and purposeful withdrawal to do so, being patient, going quiet into your heart stillness, and spiritual focus and enlightenment. Like the mountain he is depicted standing upon, this symbolizes reaching a spiritual pinnacle of growth, achievement, and accomplishment that has been in preparation to bring forth to share with others. The Hermit focuses on inner awareness as guide to life and the lantern he holds is a symbol of the wisdom and enlightenment found, and of the inner light that is revealing answers. The staff he holds symbolizes a path of initiation, power and authority, which also demonstrates his wise use of deliberate isolation and reveals what has been attained in wisdom to support the evolutionary path he follows. And since the staff is in the left hand it is connected with the subconscious and coming to master all parts of himself (the seen and unseen). The snow he stands upon (like the highest grounds of the snowy Himalayan peaks where the snow leopard resides) symbolize the great heights of spiritual enlightenment achieved, or that is available to achieve, by walking this path when it cycles around. The cloak offers the same ability that the snow leopard’s coat does, that of being able to stay “invisible” until ready to reveal what has been attained and even then, to do so with discernment.

This leads us to the next interesting synchronicity that this painting comes to double as – being #9 in my series – the numerological correspondence for The Hermit card is number nine. 🙂

The number nine represents the end of a cycle, wisdom, completion, fulfillment, attainment, satisfaction, accomplishment, search for truth, releasing all that no longer serves your life, and endings to old cycles before the new begins. The spiritual meaning of nine has to do with intellectual power, influence over experiences, inventiveness, going within to access your own inner wisdom and power, and then extending your authentic gifts to the world in service for positive, influential change.

The painting also happens to symbolize the season of Winter – the Winter of your soul – a season that symbolizes the hermit – no surprise – and a time for stillness, silence, indwelling, percolation, introversion, contemplation, integration. It is basically a time for going within and quieting the mind so the soul can retrieve from that centered place/Source, what will be of greatest benefit. It is a time of “crystallizing” your inner workings from a place of clarity and purification.

And the snowflakes of course represent our individual and beautiful uniqueness, simultaneously within our unity of connection with the Collective Consciousness that all originates from Source. We each have our own journeys, as Source experiencing itself, but how that journey unfolds is up to us to create in the reflection of our hearts.

As you can see there are many layers within the symbolism of this painting and that goes without mentioning the other layers you can likely discover by exploring it and letting your heart feel the energetic message it conveys.

I created an image that brings physical clarity and the mystical surreal together, whereas you see a very poignant snow leopard that for purposes of this painting is not camouflaging itself, but revealing itself so you can come to feel what it means to be in that space of grounded strength and centered peace that exudes from within, while following your spiritual path – seen also through his soulful and piercing clear eyes, which mirror the environment of enchanted crystalline snowflakes and enlightenment that is coming through from Source.

The question is, are we seeing Source as a separate entity from which this comes, or is this a projection of the inner journey revealed of what is going on within and behind those crystalline eyes from the Source at heart?

Above the snow leopard you also see the faint appearance of Buddha with star-like snowflakes lighting up his heart and sitting just above his crown.

Since the Himalayas are home to the highest mountain in the world, Mt. Everest, and to many Tibetan Buddhist monks, they are known to symbolize spiritual enlightenment and ascension. Is it no wonder then that the “hermit-like” snow leopards reside here as well?

There is much I could continue to reveal, but I’ve already revealed much more than I normally like to do with my paintings, as they are meant to be “experienced” and what I may say, share, or see, may be something completely different than what you “experience.” I prefer not taking away from that, but providing some insights to anyone who is interested.

Because of the way that things are so magically aligning these days, I felt to share more of the story. And because this painting feels significant to the current energies of where some people are, in terms of really doing that deep inward work with the reflections of shadow and old to integrate and release, this felt important to expound upon a bit. There are also cycles that are continually happening on a daily basis where we are learning to balance our energy and this involves both the inner and outer and understanding when to move in and out for optimal results. So even though we are in Summer and we are being asked to bring forth into the light and create the new reality we have been wanting and working towards, there are also periods of stepping back, like with the Mercury Retrograde currently, to regroup and make adjustments so you can leap forward with greater focus.

As always, I have said that anything can change at any moment, and I follow where things lead. There is the potential this may be the last in the Universal ARKitecture series, contrary to originally feeling there may be a few more. The numbers within the series has shifted a couple of times already, and could again, but currently this is where I am putting present closure until, or if, I receive guidance differently.

Perhaps it is perfect in this way, as the cycle of 9 leads us to the birthing of the new cycle, and what that new looks like is up to each of us individually to create for ourselves from the mirror of our own heart’s reality.

So the next canvas is a blank one for you to envision and manifest as you desire. What will your #1 look like?

Whereas, I am called to create in another vein, having channeled the messages given to me for this series of “experience” and am now ready to walk through the next doorway.

Time to Change and Create Your Own Reality By Example – A Channeling


Whether you believe in channeled information or not, isn’t really important. What is most important is to listen with your heart to any information that comes through, whether channeled, in a book, through a talk, a conversation with a friend, family member, someone you meet for the first time, etc. and see if the message speaks to you. You are the power in your world to weed through what feels most resonant to your frequency and what you decide to do with it. Please exercise this power and don’t be led by following what you think you should follow…rather allow your heart to be the gauge that lights up when it meets the same frequency match.

There are seeds of wisdom and teaching that can be found from everywhere. Even in messages that don’t resonate, you have been drawn to it for a reason and are being taught something simply by your hearing it and choosing how to process and integrate it. It’s always up to us what we take away from things, and letting things sit and percolate will create shifts. If something brings up a fight, ask yourself why? Are you being challenged into the evolution of your heart or are you having something mirrored to be a gauge for how far you’ve come?

A dear cosmic brother of mine shared this video of Bashar, a multi-dimensional extra-terrestrial being who speaks through channel Darryl Anka from what we perceive as the future. He has a profound, fun and poignant type of humor that cuts through things and the way his messages come through may not be for everyone, but again, listen to the message and see how it meshes or what it brings up in you.

I am posting this particular message because it happens to mirror my own beliefs and it feels very poignant for everything going on right now. It’s something I actually find myself sharing a lot with people, long before I just saw this video a couple of days ago. I only post things that resonate with me and that I feel have something valuable to teach. You can choose for yourself if you like what you hear. Again, I’m not particularly interested in “who” says something, as much as I am with, “does the message mirror my feelings?”

It’s not often I share channeled messages, as I know that people sometimes get hung up on “channeling” or who is being channeled. But when I feel a particular message has importance, then I follow the nudge to share it. I think it’s important also to learn to weed through things, not get caught in definitions of words, and to also not get hung up on following any one particular person. Everything is merely a mirror of your own wisdom and Divinity. Exercise it.

 

This Is The Big One We’ve All Been Waiting For: The Grand Sextile from Randy Bruner


If you’re interested in the energetic line-up kicking off, here’s a post from Randy Bruner on what’s all happening with the planetary aspects and what the Mayans perspective is on it. Thanks to Jenny “Yemaya” Cook for sharing it with me. As I shared with her, this may be why I have seen and been bombarded with hexagons showing up all the time (their presence bringing healing and activation) and been gifted crystals with hexagons inside and hexagon shaped crystals. This has felt very significant, which is why I did a post on it: Hexagons and Healings – Universal Symbolism to Ponder. And since that post the hexagons showing up in photos taken has increased. They show up over my body a lot too. And more crystals had found there way to me with the hexagons inside.

Indeed a ton of powerful igniting happening and with the Mercury Retrograde it has almost been like the quiet to fortify before the pow! I’ve consistently been feeling that everything has revved up and needing to be embodied and activated now, which is why I keep getting the message: “don’t worry, just trust, there’s no need for your brain to know how because you already know it at heart, just say yes when the Universe presents something, everything is possible, the new is already here, and the bottom line is love (the Universal, transcendent, unconditional kind)!”

I’ve reposted it in its entirety below, but you can also read it on Randy’s blog here: This Is The Big One We’ve All Been Waiting For: The Grand Sextile

This Is The Big One We’ve All Been Waiting For : The Grand Sextile

Planetary Aspects and Tzolkin Correspondences for the Cosmic Moon 2013

Aloha Planetary Kin: this is your Cosmic skywatcher, Randy Bruner, Blue Cosmic Hand, coming to you from 19.5° on the Big Island of Hawaii. These are epic times in which we are living and this Cosmic Moon is no exception to that. The Maya were avid skywatchers. To them the axiom “As above, so below.” was how they lived their lives. They watched the dynamic of the planets moving across the sky and lived their life accordingly. As I write this we are in the central column of the Tzolkin in the Mirror Wavespell. It is the Summer Solstice day, Yellow Spectral Star, ” I dissolve in order to beautify.” I’m finding seemingly endless order of correspondences of the planetary aspects and the Tzolkin. I will attempt to condense them for transmission to you.

This Cosmic Moon, the last of the 7 Mystic Moons, contains an awesome set of planetary movements and aspects, which correlate very closely to the Dreamspell version of the Tzolkin. The outer planets move very slowly and are already in position as the inner planets move into aspects with them. Just after Galactic Synchronization, on the 4th day of the Magnetic Moon, July 29, 2013, the planets will form an almost exact Grand Sextile. The Grand Sextile also includes two Grand Trines. These are all very positive and harmonious aspects completely surrounding the planet in a Sacred Geometric configuration. This is an awesome alignment of the planets in the solar system emcompassing the Earth in the geometry of a Stargate.

Here is an image of the astrology chart for the grand sextile. I accentuated the Grand Trine & Grand Sextile aspects to highlight their geometry.

I’ve also included an image here of the sacred geometry held by the planets of the solar system around the earth during this aspect.

Magnetic Moon 4, July 29, 2013, is the day of the Grand Sextile. It is encoded as Blue Spectral Hand, “I dissolve in order to know. Releasing healing. I seal the store of accomplishment with the spectral tone of liberation. I am guided by my own power doubled.” What an affirmation for planetary healing and upliftment. This aspect comes into play one week after the Full Moon of the Cosmic Moon, which is the last of 3 Super Moons in a row. The Super Moon is when the Full Moon falls on the day when the Moon is closest to the Earth. The Moon moves into position to create a Grand Trine with Venus and Pluto which also completes a Grand Sextile around the planet Earth. The Grand Trine with Venus, Pluto and the Moon signifies the possibility of transformation (Pluto) through the power of beauty (Venus) and love (Super Moon).

There is already a Grand Trine in place as the Moon moves in to complete the Grand Sextile. Mars conjunct Jupiter trines Saturn and Neptune. This harmonious aspect represents the possibility of our highest hopes and dreams (Neptune) being able to reclaim spirituality from religion (Jupiter) and replace materialism with abundance (Saturn). Mars is added in there to allow us to replace war with peace.

The Grand Sextile is formed from the 2 Grand Trines that we’ve already talked about. The Grand Sextile forms a 6 sided, crystalline form around the Earth with 2 interlocking triangles inside. This is the geometric form of a Stargate formed around the planet Earth by the other planets in the solar system. This is the opportunity for direct download of galactic cosmic energy.

The aspects of the Grand Sextile enhance the aspects of the Grand Trines that we already discussed. The conjunction of Jupiter and Mars is sextile to Venus, the power of beauty, on one side, and the Moon, the power of love, on the other side. This signals the opportunity for the power of love and beauty to overcome the power of war and religion. Then the planet Saturn, materialism, is sextile to Venus, power of beauty, on one side and Pluto, the planet of transformation, on the other side. This signals the power of beauty to transform materialism. Then we have the planet Neptune, the power of our highest hopes and dreams, sextile to Pluto, the planet of transformation, on one side and the Moon, the power of love, on the other side. This signifies the power of transformation to bring about our highest hopes and dreams through the power of love.

This image appears to me to be the template for an altar to utilize for the Day Out of Time, the New Year and for the day of the Grand Sextile. I’ve included the copy of the astrology chart so that you can see the positions of the planets. For the purpose of the altar I would suggest placing stones on each of the points to represent each of the planets. Through this method we will actualize the Stargate in all of our ceremonies. You can, of course, just meditate on this image if you are a solo practitioner or group of individuals not able to create an altar for yourself.

Four days before the Day Out of Time and four days after the Day Out of Time the Moon moves across the sky, forming conjunctions to the planets Pluto, Neptune, Uranus and then moving into place to take the last spot in a Grand Trine and forming the Grand Sextile. This seems to me to be a good time to hold energy and ceremonies for the transformation of humanity and the planet. I know that this is adding a lot to the Day Out of Time celebration. Stretching it out over more than a week may not be possible for many of you. But, this is the Big One we’ve all been waiting for. So, I think it is worth the effort to take the extra time to participate fully in the planetary ascension process.

It is my suggestion that we extend our celebration of the New Year from the Full Moon before through the Grand Sextile on Blue Spectral Hand day and utilize this geometric pattern for ceremonies that we perform for the Day Out of Time and leading up to the Grand Sextile. In my opinion this signals the opening of the gate for Galactic Synchronization. It is the gateway to a New World and our new future as a Galactic Culture.

Having delineated the aspects of the Grand Sextile, now we will discuss the planetary aspects and the Tzolkin correspondences in the Cosmic Moon which set the stage for it. First of all, the Cosmic Moon contains the Yellow Seed Wavespell. The Yellow Seed Wavespell contains 10 GAP days in a row. These are the GAP days for projecting into the future and allow us the opportunity to dream our future into being. So, in the Yellow Seed Wavespell, we plant the seed for our future. This, of course, prepares us for Galactic Synchronization at the beginning of the New Year, Yellow Galactic Seed.

The 1st of the 10 GAP days in a row falls on Cosmic Moon 12, July 8, 2013, and is encoded as White Electric World-Bridger, “I activate in order to equalize.” This date is also the New Moon in the Cosmic Moon of Presence. So, the New Moon, the opportunity to set up new beginnings, begins the 10 GAP days in a row dealing with the future and allowing us to dream our future into being.

The last of the 10 GAP days in a row falls on Cosmic Moon 21, July 17, 2013, and is encoded as Blue Crystal Eagle, “I dedicate in order to create.” Most of you know that the crystal tone is the tone of cooperation. This is our opportunity to cooperate in order to create a new world, a new future for ourselves and others.

On the last of the 10 GAP days in a row, Blue Crystal Eagle, Jupiter moves into a trine with Saturn and Neptune. Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune in a harmonious aspect represents the possibility of our highest hopes and dreams (Neptune) being able to reclaim spirituality from religion (Jupiter) and replace materialism with abundance (Saturn). This begins to set up what will become a Grand Trine and the Grand Sextile just after Galactic Synchronization.

Then, on Cosmic Moon 23, July 19, 2013, Red Magnetic Earth, “I unify in order to evolve.” Saturn moves into the trine with Neptune. This transforms the above aspects into a Grand Trine. It forms a triangle around the Earth in space and embraces the earth in the opportunity to evolve, since the Red Earth Wavespell bridges us over Galactic Synchronization.

We move next to Cosmic Moon 24, July 20, 2013, White Lunar Mirror, “I polarize in order to reflect.” On this date the planet Mercury moves direct and the planet Mars moves up to conjunct Jupiter and enter the Grand Trine formed by Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune. Above we were talking about reclaiming religion and materialism with the energy of this Grand Trine. Now Mars is added in there, which allows us to replace war with peace. If we transform our action, the power of Mars, towards the upliftment of humanity and the Earth the Grand Trine will transform the power of Mars from the God of War to the God of Action.

The day before the Full Moon of the Cosmic Moon of Presence is Cosmic Moon 25, July 21, 2013, Blue Electric Storm, “I activate in order to catalyze.” On this day the Moon eclipses the planet Pluto. The Moon, the planet of emotion, passes in front of Pluto, the planet of transformation. This activates the power of love, our highest emotion, to bring about transformation within humanity and on the planet.

The next day is the Full Moon Day, it is Cosmic Moon 26, July 22, 2013. In the Tzolkin it is the day Yellow Self-Existing Sun. This day is also known as 4 Ahau in the traditional Mayan calendar. In the Mayan long count the date 4 Ahau is the beginning and the end of the last cycle. This acknowledges the Alpha & Omega of the grand cycles. It is also the last of 3 in a row Super Moons. The Super Moon is when the Full Moon falls on the day when the Moon is closest to the Earth. So, it is actually bigger in the sky, therefore a Super Moon. This of course means it has a greater effect on the Earth, the tides, the tectonic plates and our psyche. If we tie the power of love to the Super Moon imagine what we can do with that energy. Also on this day Mars moves up to conjunct with Jupiter. This solidifies the 1st of the Grand Trine aspects. This allows the power of love, Super Moon, to overcome the power of war, Mars, and the negative aspects of religion, Jupiter. This will, of course, bring about an ending and a new beginning in both of those areas.

On the last day of the 13 moon calendar Cosmic Moon 28, July 24, 2013, the Moon moves into conjunction with Neptune. This adds the power of love from the Super Moon to the power of our highest hopes and dreams from the planet Neptune. This ends out the cycle of the 7 Mystic Moons.

Then on the Day Out of Time, Blue Resonant Night, “I channel in order to dream.”, the Moon moves into conjunction with Chiron the healer. This allows us to channel the energy into our dream of healing the planet, which facilitates our path into Galactic Synchronization. On the New Year’s Day, Yellow Galactic Seed, “I harmonize in order to target.” We will all be gathering to celebrate and focus on bringing in and embodying the Galactic frequencies. But, there are still many more aspects yet to come and the most powerful planetary aspects are not until Magnetic Moon 4. Blue Spectral Hand.

The 2nd day of the New Year, Magnetic Moon 2, Red Solar Serpent, ” I pulse in order to survive.”, sees the Moon move into conjunction with the planet Uranus. Uranus is the planet of the lightning bolt, which brings about quick, sudden sometimes all-encompassing change. The Moon as the power of love added to the power of Uranus to bring about positive all-encompassing change very rapidly is the essence of this aspect.

It is important to note that there are some challenging aspects in this chart as well. As you can see, there are several red line aspects in the chart. These are aspects that will attempt to hold us back or bring us down. Now, more than ever, we are being asked to “rise above” the lower energies and hold a higher vision of the world. Now we must realize that it’s where we focus our energies that determine the results we get.

I hope that some of you can take the initiative to create and perform ceremonies of enlightenment around each of these aspects.  Because this is the Big One we’ve all been waiting for. It’s time to step up and participate in the planetary ascension process.

Peace, Love & In Lakéch

Creating in My “Temple of Silence”


joy-artMy office/art studio is a cosmic sea of canvases, crystals, sacred treasures, and magical beings, as I immerse in the powers of creativity in my temple space this last week.

And while it may look like a sea of “stuff”, none of it is random or cluttered, but rather woven into the perfect essence of the vibe currently channeling in here. There is a powerful stillness that vibrates the minute you set foot inside.

I have canvases galore (17 total) all over and crystals spread out everywhere (some of which are my own, some that are being infused in sacred paintings, and others that I haven’t had time yet to post) and Miss Joy has been my very loyal and loving partner, assisting me with everything, while Gaia transmits through the energy waves.

You can see Joy pictured here in her chewed up little house that sits next to my canvas where I paint. Sometimes she hangs there or in a little ball next to me. And other times she is smack up against the speakers to my stereo, as she loves the music mom plays and loves to feel the vibration against her physical body.

Her support really helps me with accessing what is to come through.

While I create I’m always immersed in music that takes my soul on a journey. It is in the frequencies of the music, that I can be free in that “no mind”, but “all heart” space.

The energy in my room is pretty potent right now and flowing in creative and magical abundance.

The song posted below is one of my favorite musical journeys to channel creativity with (will be again after this post) – always allowing the energy to draw in the mirroring music to assist. It mirrors the feeling and essence of where I journey in the in-between void of pure creation from my “Temple of Silence.” I can’t help but “physically” be moved by the very soft undertones in the background of ancient primal energy that is over-layed in the celestial. And so one will find me, while I paint, in a sacred dance. Perfect harmony to me for balance and drawing from the core forth.

While you listen and watch the beautiful images, I hope they carry you into your own creatively self-expressive journey of empowerment or simply provide you 9 minutes of silent “being”.

Life is a Sacred Art that Turns Awareness into Rhythmic Being – Gabrielle Roth


Perhaps my being in my own creative cosmic dance drew in this inspiration, but however it came through, I was guided today to share some words from Gabrielle Roth, an incredibly influential teacher of meditative dance, creator of the 5Rhythms movement practice, and a shaman in her own right.

Gabrielle felt that physical movement was an integral key to unlocking spirit and integrating spirit with your sacred temple body. She was dedicated, heart and soul, to exploring ways to engage spirit and creativity through movement, but ultimately to “create life as a work of art” (something we both share) and to access unity of experience as a cosmic dance:

“Mine is the art of inspiring people to turn themselves inside out, transform their suffering into art, their art into awareness, and their awareness into action.” ~ Gabrielle Roth

Perhaps her words shared below may provide impetus to ignite your spirit to move through you:

“We all share the wound of fragmentation.  And we can all share in the cure of unification.  Healing is the unification of all our forces — the powers of being, feeling, knowing, and seeing.

I look in the mirror and I look out the window and I see myself and others struggling to be in our bodies.  Struggling to know who we are and what we need.  To like ourselves, rather than wanting to be somebody else, or somewhere else.  I see our inability to relate, to communicate from the heart, to overcome our distance and alienation from one another.  I see us avoiding each other’s eyes, at a loss to know what others need.  I see people searching for direction, trying to summon up their personal power, longing for the strength to be independent.

The wounded healer in me knows that healing our driven selves comes from our ability to empower our bodies, hearts, minds, souls, and spirits once more, bringing them into vital unity.  Spiritual healing means taking responsibility for being a whole person.  We have to take responsibility for being a body, for having a heart, for possessing a mind, for awakening our soul, for opening to our spirit.  We need to do right by our body, purify our relationships, use our mind for creative freedom and not enslavement, free the soul from the ego, and undertake the spiritual journey.  A whole person is an inspired person, one who embodies the spirit.

Disease is inertia.  Healing is movement.  If you put the body in motion, you will change.  You are meant to move: from flowing to staccato, through chaos into lyrical and back into the stillness from which all movement comes.

If you let your heart be moved, be open to the risk and the adventure of feelings, letting them work through to completion, you will change.  Tears turn into smiles, anger into embraces.

If you free your mind to experience and complete each of your life cycles, integrating their teachings and tasks, you will change.  It’s when you stop moving through life that you get caught out of place, that you react to adult situations with childhood emotions.  Moving completely through your life makes you whole.

If you awaken your soul, you will change.  Engage your characters.  Watch yourself act them out.  Master them, and you’re free to be, feel, think, and act as your distinct self.

The spirit in motion heals, expands, circles in and out of the body, moving through the layers of consciousness from inertia to ecstasy.  Open to the spirit, and you will be transformed.

Movement is my medium and my metaphor.  I know that if a wave of energy is allowed to complete itself, it yields a whole new wave, and in fact that is all I really know.  Riding these waves means joining the cosmic dance that, as Dante says, ‘moves the sun and the other stars.’ 

Movement is the movement of change. In my experience, if you put your psyche in motion it will heal itself. Movement is the medicine. Each of us has the power and responsibility to heal ourselves, to be our own medicine man or woman. Awakening our innate powers of being, loving, knowing, seeing and healing involves ongoing work at all levels and in all dimensions of our self. In your deepest center, you are the stillpoint. You are the rhythm beyond stillness, the feeling beyond compassion, the sexual energy beyond celibacy, the life force beyond death, the vibration beyond inspiration. The moving center is within you.

…Our soul, our true self, is the most mysterious, essential, and magical dimension of our being.  In fact, it is not a separate reality, as traditional Western thought views it, but the cohesive force that unites our body, heart, and mind.  It is not a ghost trapped somehow in the physical machinery of our body but the very essence of our being.

Each soul is unique, and we are called upon to break out of the minimum security prison of conformity and mediocrity to experience our soul’s true magic and power.  Like a plant it needs to be nurtured to grow and blossom, and to be freed from the entangling, obscuring weeds that tend to take over.  The soul is an artist.  Its nature is to create, and its natural expression is in the sacred archetypical roles of the dancer, the singer, the actor and the healer.  Life is a cabaret, and our challenge is to act out our essential self on the stage for the world.

Though the soul is not a thing, it is our beingness, that which gives us being.  So its presence and absence are visible.  Its presence manifests in being awake, attentive, energetic, alive.  It is the spark of life.  It is absent or dampened when we lack vitality, elan, energy.  It is the true self we are seeking in all our explorations, and yet it is not somewhere “out there” but right here now, underneath the false roles we’re always casting ourselves in.

Freeing the soul, freeing ourselves to be soulful, means empowering ourselves to really see what’s going on in ourselves, in others, in our lives.  This seeing is not the ordinary sort of looking we’re habituated to.  Looking operates on the surface; seeing probes beneath to discern the essence, the motion, the energy.  Looking is just a matter of regarding things things according to our preconceived, static ideas.  But as the new physics and biology have clearly shown, our surface impression of the nature of reality as static naively misses the truth of the constant motion and infinite space that truly constitute reality.

Carlos Castenada in “A Separate Reality”, gives an arresting example of the difference between seeing and looking.  Don Juan describes the death of his son who was crushed by rocks on a highway.  “The workers stood around looking at his mangled body.  I stood there too, but I did not look.  I shifted my eyes so I would see his personal life disintegrating, expanding uncontrollably beyond its limits, like a fog of crystals, because that’s the way life and death mix and expand.  Had I looked at him I would have watched him becoming immobile and I would have felt a cry inside of me, because never again would I look at his fine figure pacing the earth.  I saw his death instead, and there was no sadness, no feeling.  His death was equal to everything else.”  Later he tells Carlos that seeing is “hard work.”

Seeing implies detachment.  Looking implies attachment.  Looking is with the eyes.  Seeing is with the whole being.  Looking at myself in the mirror, I think that my nose is crooked and too big, my eyes too small, my hair too fine, my hips too wide.  I judge.  I assess myself by some external criteria that have by now become part and parcel of how I look at people.  But if I stare into my left eye in the mirror I see only a still, perfect little doll-like figure of myself in the midst of a deep pool of subtly changing reflections, probably an image much closer to the truth.  It is when I can see myself with interpretation that the magic of being, the pure wonder of existing is revealed…

… Life is sacred.  Life is art.  Life is sacred art.  The art of sacred living means being a holy actor, acting from the soul rather than the ego.  The soul is out of space and time and hence always available, an ever-present potential of our being.  It is up to each of us to celebrate and actualize our being, and to turn each meal, conversation, outfit, letter, and so on, into art.  Every mundane activity is an opportunity for full, authentic self-exploration.  The soul is our artistic self, our capacity for transforming every dimension of our lives into art and theater.”

Gabrielle Roth

18 Jam Packed Minutes from “Brother Can you Spare a Paradigm?”


A great find and post that I was nudged to repost from my sister soul Laura Bruno. As she shared, yes, change IS happening right now in all areas. Science has been (more and more surfacing that has been going on behind the scenes) and continues to catch up with what we have known in heart and experience. Truth always comes out. 🙂 What is your truth?

Laura Bruno's Blog

I found a link to this video on RMN and just had to share. I’ve heard of and read books by some of these speakers, but the collection of all these ideas together in rapid succession really offers potent energy. Change is happening in all sorts of areas, including the religion of Science. 😉

A Little Hummingbird “Time Out” to Receive the Heart of You


hummingbirdRight outside the bathroom we have a beautiful and mature persimmon tree. This tree seems to attract, in her nurturing stillness, hummingbirds. We have a hummingbird post on this side of the yard too and it seems to beckon them into the yard via the path of the persimmon tree.

Yesterday morning, as I woke and readied myself in the bathroom something called my attention to the window. Pretty regularly I hear and see hummingbirds dance outside the window as they fly by and seem to hover a while at the window itself, seeming to say hello. But on this day, silence drew my attention and when I peered out the window I found a sweet, plump little fella sitting with feathers all fluffed out in stillness on a branch of the persimmon tree.

It’s not often you get a chance to see hummingbirds still and this was a very rare occasion indeed, as he sat for a very long time as I watched for 30+ minutes, (and still likely continued to sit, as I went off to my hair cut appointment). I was so drawn in by his comfort in taking a “waking” restful time out.

Hummingbirds are known for living fast, flitting around between flowers (sound like a familiar lifestyle to some two-legged mammals we know?),  as their wings flap up to 200 times per second. Occasionally you find them sitting for a moment, but sitting without actually sleeping for this long, is a bit unusual. Yes, they do sleep! And apparently their sleep state is like a mini-hibernation.

But this little one was in fact, not asleep, and he was very attentive to me when I spoke to him, but also very calm, comfortable, and settled in a relaxed state. After a while when I made a little “birdy” noise, he began to sing back in a very tiny, low-pitched voice. It was really a beautiful connecting time.

The hummingbird symbolizes timeless joy and the Nectar of Life, as well as a symbol for accomplishing that which seems impossible and will teach you how to find the miracle of joyful living from your own life circumstances. They also symbolize energy, vitality, renewal, sincerity, healing, persistence, peace, infinity, agility, playfulness, loyalty, and affection. They are also messengers of hope and remind us to be persistent with the pursuit of our dreams. Apparently, a not-so-known fact is that their wing flutters move in the pattern of an infinity symbol, which then embodies the symbolism of eternity and continuity of infinite cycles.

They are seen as being tireless, always seeking the good and beauty of each moment and day – and yet let us know that the sweetest nectar is found within.

Since hummingbirds call our attention to how we expend our energy, when they appear (and in this case, so profoundly), it heralds us to honestly look at how we are managing our energy – are we wasting it on needless things like fears, worry, or unimportant details and things to avoid something? Or, are we staying well-balanced and efficiently honing in on productive use of our energy?

I found my little hummingbird friend to be mirroring of the unlimited depth to our experience that there is. By embracing more stillness and focus, I discover even greater revelations that come from this active receiving mode. And he was a reminder of keeping true to my heart and focusing only on what is most important to my path right now.

By allowing this time to focus on creative pursuits and finishing creative projects, as well as just letting go of any restraints whatsoever, I am discovering some hidden messages through this sole focus that are completely evolving what one might have thought this time was about. It is revealing something new birthing that is beyond this one particular mode of creating. Some truths are coming to surface and drawing in, as well as pointing me in directions most aligned with my path. It is in these moments of allowing and following the inner voice that I am able to really understand what it was trying to get my attention for. And that answer is something beyond self-sabotaged contriving and will constantly evolve, as I keep embracing each wave.

Nothing is permanent, so even if things change right now in the way I may have thought, it can still spiral back around later, but in a very different and more encompassing/evolved way, by letting it flow through.

And particularly interesting is that I’m increasingly seeing the layers of meaning behind the guidance I follow. It may seem like one thing could be the reason for doing something, but by listening to the guidance and embracing doing it, you can actually discover something totally different and even deeper for why it is you were led to do it in the first place.

The extent of my little hummingbird’s stillness mirrored a reiteration for me that my own inner guidance will lead the way when I stop to listen to my heart’s whisper, and the way I am creating my balance is just that, “my” balance and “my” way. And that even more stillness and even more active “undoing” is revealing my truth that lies beyond any perceived veils.

The sweetness of the moment has many hidden gems when we really open to allowing it to reveal itself, rather than trying to unwrap it in a certain way.

I thank my hummingbird not just for the mirroring of his deliberate and ever-present stillness, but for his reiteration that infinite peace resides within, no matter what is going on, and for his tidings of joy and continual hope in all of life at hand.

I thank him also for reiterating that my dreams and things I’ve felt, but may have seemed impossible to some or even at times was unsupported or deterred by others, are in fact actualizing the more I have embraced the truth of me and my path. My little hummingbird allowed me to take a sweet time out to feel the heart of things and relax into the flow that, in the past, I worked so hard to create and now am able to naturally tune in with ease, realizing everything always is in Divine perfection. Even in that moment with him I was behind on getting to my appointment, but had decided to relax and then received a text that my hair stylist needed more time herself and so my hummingbird friend and I had more connective time to be in the sweetness of the moment.

Sometimes doing exactly what is not expected of you and what you think you can’t possibly do right now, is the very thing you would benefit from. My little hummingbird friend knew this and not only was he sharing his wisdom, but walking the walk as well.

taniaIt is also synchronous his showing up right before I headed out to get a hair cut, which always heralds a supportive energy shift that has been unfolding. I am feeling transformed once again and aligned with how I am feeling from the inside out. There is a lightness, ease, and freshness to the nature of me that is revealing itself in my receiving with a resounding “yes”, aligning with how that weaves into the collective tapestry.

Reconnecting with the sweet nectar of our luminous heart light is the evolution we are sharing in the journey of experience. I am grateful for all the Universal guidance and support that is ever-present.

What messages are you receiving to beckon and ignite your embrace?

To be still means to empty yourself from the incessant flow of thoughts and create a state of consciousness that is open and receptive. ~John Daido Loori

Mind can be compared to an ocean, and momentary mental events such as happiness, irritation, fantasies, and boredom to the waves that rise and fall on its surface. Just as the waves can subside to reveal the stillness of the ocean’s depths, so too is it possible to calm the turbulence of our mind to reveal its natural pristine clarity. ~Kathleen McDonald

We do not have to get out of the stream of daily life; its undertows and eddies have no power to drown us. We need only look through the rushing waters to the stillness in its depth. ~Sharon Lebell, Brother David Steindl-Rast

You need not do anything. Remain sitting at your table and listen. You need not even listen, just wait. You need not even wait, just learn to be quiet, still and solitary. And the world will freely offer itself to you unmasked. It has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet. ~Franz Kafka

Be still and know who you are. ~Kirtana
