Violet Flame ~ Crystal Illuminations Painting


Crystal Illumination - Violet Flame (1)

Crystal Illumination – Violet Flame by Tania Marie

 

As you know I have taken an indefinite painting hiatus, feeling drawn to focus my creative energy elsewhere, but now and then have accepted some painting commissions if it felt in alignment. This is the first of three commissioned paintings I had promised, which takes me back to my beloved Crystal Illuminations paintings that many of you lovingly embraced. The next two custom pieces will be a continuation of the spiritual animal paintings in the Universal ARKitecture series taking us into the realm of bird symbolism.

This was commissioned as a gift from a dear client to her sister to support her in her life with her personal journey and challenges she has been facing. I was given the opportunity to intuit the crystals for this intent and then channel the energy forth that they reflected in support of this.

What resulted, I instantly fell in love with and while I haven’t painted in a REALLY long time, this piece magickally came together and flowed more quickly than any of these crystal pieces I’ve created.

When I tuned in I had immediately felt Amethyst for the energy to support her sister, but did some research anyway into crystal properties to make sure I wasn’t overlooking anything. I found a couple here and there that supported one thing or another she was looking for, but nothing all-encompassing and truly as intentfully potent as Amethyst in any and all of these regards. So in the end, indeed Amethyst was what spoke loud and clear, without getting into the personal specifics.

Amethyst Properties Include: extremely powerful and protective, high spiritual vibration, enhances serene and higher states of consciousness and meditation, calms and stimulates the mind, improves concentration, emotional centering and contentment within self, brings peace to any challenged experience, uplifts, one of the most spiritual stones, promotes divine love for self and others, selflessness, spiritual wisdom, opens and strengthens intuition and enhances psychic gifts, works with crown chakra, third eye and heart opening, promotes peace and inspiration, represents principles of complete metamorphosis, soothes, relaxes, heals, promotes healthy sleep habits and channeling, good for prosperity, because of its transmutational energies it helps open gateways into intense and transforming spiritual experiences while protecting the wearer from black magic, a protection stone in general, breaks up old emotional thought processes, attracts justice, protects and wards off danger and violent death, increases the activity in the right brain, cuts through illusion, as well as raises thoughts and aspirations to a higher spiritual level. Amethyst brings clarity to the conscious and unconscious mind. Amethyst is well known — as from the ancients — as a sobriety stone and used for millenia to assist in getting rid of addictions to alcohol, drugs, smoking, etc, and destructive compulsive behaviors of all kinds. Physically amethyst is said by spiritual healers and mystical lore to heal the withdrawal symptoms of any sort of addiction, help with headaches, insomnia, arthritis, diabetes, pain relief, circulatory system issues, endocrine system problems, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, immune system deficiencies, asthma, phobias, pregnancy and preventing miscarriage, menopause, PMS, and general healing.

When I visited the Gem Faire (by the way this commission had come in the night before I was set to go there), I was open to whatever would come through, but everything led me to Amethyst. I found the two stones that are used in this painting from my good friend who sells crystals. I love his stuff because they are very pure and high vibrational. But I was drawn to two stones, one of which I didn’t know about, and was pleasantly surprised to come to find it was actually an Amethyst as well, but an even higher vibrational one!

So the longer, larger crystal is an Amethyst and the smaller one at top is what’s known as a Vera Cruz Amethyst. I knew instantly I must get both for her, as they would work on different levels of the integrative healing and support, as well as align with current energies and where things are moving more into vibrationally.

Vera Cruz Amethyst  properties include: this is an extremely high vibration stone attuned to the transmutational violet flame. It works with the etheric blueprint and DNA to bring about profound inter-dimensional cellular healing. A stone of spiritual purification, it removes imprints and attachments of all kinds. A protective stone, it facilitates safe out-of-body experiences and spiritual journeying. Instantly takes you into a beta-brainwave state, facilitating meditation, trance and divination skills. A powerful tool for shamanic work at high levels. It activates and cleanses all the chakras, especially the third eye and crown or higher crown chakras. Supports overcoming addictions.

So, so powerful!!!

And immediately what started channeling through for this painting was to create a violet flame, nautilus portal that would access the many layers of the integrative healing and transmutational process, helping to journey to the core and work on all levels physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually when meditated with and gazed upon, or simply having near you.

Violet is a ray of highest healing and purification and symbolic of transmutation to the octave of light. Of course it is also connected with Reiki.

The Nautilus shells to me are of an ancient nature and with its integrated chambers is symbolic of continuous progress, balance, new ideas, visionary discoveries, innovation and inspiration, renewal, eternal continuity, expansion, consistency, evolution, interconnectedness, divine perfection, natural flow, stability and internal harmony within regeneration, abundant creative energy – in general, a symbol of life and “the journey home” to Source within All That Is, through a succession of transcendent spirals. When gazing upon the Nautilus it provides a serene sense of balance and well being.

The spiral itself is a symbol of creation, movement, fluidity, surrender/releasing, holistic growth, and awareness of the one within the context of the whole. It reveals the cyclical nature of life, the consciousness of nature from core center expanding outward, and the relationship between unity and multiplicity. It is the limitless spirals that move both “inward towards the Source of creation and eternally outward with Source’s continual self-creation.” In this way, the spiral reflects the contiguous journey home to who you really are and the journey to be one with Source.

The painting is done on an 8” x 10” canvas and in layers of deep purples to ethereal violet and then I was guided to infuse touches of white, cream and this beautiful golden green to access a high level of healing from the higher heart. There’s a very organic feeling, like birthing from the womb of the sacred feminine, but also like a multi-dimensional vortex of energy.

Crystal Illumination – Violet Flame by Tania Marie

I took two photos..one of the painting before I placed the crystals on it, so that you can see what is layered underneath the layers and then a photo with the crystals on. There is a lot of energy embedded into the piece with each stroke of paintbrush and each placement of color and lines.

I have titled it simply, “Violet Flame”.

As you can see, depending on lighting, it shifts. It’s so hard to capture paintings in photos. These are the best I could get, but think they came out quite well.

The large crystal is quite heavy, so I put some cardboard reinforcement into the back of the canvas in order to keep the canvas supported. And like always, I was so surprised to see how perfectly the crystals fit into the design, as I don’t place them first and paint around. I just create what wants to channel through from the energy of the crystals, as their reflection and essence, as well as the energies to work with, and then place the crystals on.

So amazing how they flow with the design and it’s the first time I create movement happening with the crystals, as they seem to be flowing with the painting and the Amethyst is anchoring and emerging from below, as the energy transmutates into the essence of the Very Cruz Amethyst at top of the flame.

I so enjoyed creating this piece and it has gotten me all inspired for the next two large paintings that will be channeling through this month. There is a lot of love I put into this, and all of my creations, as I so want to provide a pure essence of powerful support and inspiration to any and all who view this pieces.

$1444 plus shipping – comes with 3 dolphin brass stand (12% discount of $173.28 will be applied at time of purchase) – price reflected is less than cost

1’s and 4’s, such as 114 or 144 number sequence meaning – The angels are emphasizing strongly that you watch your thoughts right now. They counsel you to make a wish, as you are in a gateway that will manifest your thoughts right at this moment. 1’s are all about instant manifestation and making sure what you are thinking is only what you desire to manifest. 4’s reassure you that the angels are all around you sharing their love and there to help. When coupled together it is a gift of support towards creating your intents.

It was extremely challenging, and impossible at times, to capture all of what can be seen and found within the inner realms of this crystal. These photos (click on each to enlarge for details) do not do any justice to this both aesthetically and energetically gorgeous being, so I will try to convey as much as possible in words what can be experienced from it.

One of the rainbow inclusions

This rare and powerful Lemurian Seed Crystal Sphere is a little over 5 3/4″ in diameter (nearly 6″) and embodies the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine energy in union. It is a Master Activator with gorgeous clarity and rainbows I could only catch a few of on camera. The sphere shape utilizes the complete and whole energy of the crystal.

Soaring bird inside with rainbow wings

It is one of the crystals that comes from my own personal collection that is supremely powerful in assisting those on a path of enlightenment. If you are drawn to it, you are ready for some amazing activations, just as I have received and experienced in my time with it. Now and then some of my most cherished powerhouse crystal friends express to me that our time together has come to completion and that they are ready to be of service elsewhere. I honor them on their journey and assist them in finding new keepers when they are ready. In honor of service, when ever a crystal friend is ready to move on, I also respect the prices they share to place them at, which always reflect prices less than cost.I have enjoyed working with this beautiful friend and received much from its support in my life. The impending journeys to the crystals’ new homes are always bittersweet, but I embrace my role as a bridge and lovingly bless them and their new friends for the experiences that await them.

Close up of soaring bird with rainbow wings

While potent, this crystal also carries such a soothing, graceful and watery energy. It is has beautiful ethereal veils, as well as watery, mirror-like cascades of energy and beautiful clarity. When viewing it you have the sense of two distinct realms and dimensions that are separated but connected by these cascades and veils. There is even a portal doorway at one end of this crystal that enters at the junction of these two realms. Simply amazing!

Perched phoenix inside sphere – head is facing left with eye and beak clearly defined, peering with curved neck down, wings resting around and cradling body as it sits perched

So many energies and formations can be found inside this crystal, including a rainbow butterfly, perched phoenix, and what appears to be a soaring bird with rainbow wings. Each having their own powerful and transformation symbolism. This crystal is just loaded with spectacular natural beauty – like another world filled with beings within a being.

The soaring bird with rainbow wings, for me, is symbolic of the Goddess Iris, after which I named my beloved snow white parakeet with aqua feathers at her cheeks and under her wings that came into my life while living in Sedona. Right as I was bringing her home, a gorgeous rainbow filled the sky and I knew she had come as a heavenly messenger of love and joy to me. I named her after the Greek Goddess Iris because of this sign received. The Greek goddess Iris, goddess of the rainbow, was a messenger on Mount Olympus that would take messages from the eye of Heaven to Earth by the arc of the rainbow. The word iris also means eye of heaven. It was the name given to the goddess, the flower, and the center of your eye. This means that each of us carries a piece of heaven with us and to me, this crystal carries the same energy and helps us communicate with the other worlds, as well as brings angelic rainbow essence into our lives to help our transitions be joyous. 

I could go on and on about this crystal, but I will let it speak for itself in the photos.

About Lemurian Seed Crystals: Lemurian Seed Crystals are crystals that are reputed to have been seeded by the Lemurians – an advanced and peaceful, ancient civilization based on the consciousness of love and connection – to teach and guide us in this time. Lemurian Seed Crystals have been programmed to hold and transmit messages of unconditional love, conscious connection, and equality, while they assist us in remembering who we really are. They are very supportive, positive, and life affirming, as they enhance and encourage inner development and connectedness. They are also great for dream work and dream interpretation. Lemurian Seed Crystals have a very Yin or feminine energy, and for all their power are more gentle-feeling energetically than Yang/masculine crystals. They are very powerful tools for meditation, healing on all levels, and are excellent for clearing and balancing all chakras. There are vast universes inside each Lemurian Seed Crystal that is home to many beings of light and unique spiritual information and wisdom, as they are connected to inner earth, the earth’s surface, and the stars.

Lemurian Seed Crystals were planted in different areas of Brazil, millions of years ago, for the purpose of guiding a future generation toward healing enlightenment known of in ancient days. During the last days of Lemuria, it was decided to plant, or seed, crystals programmed to transmit a message of oneness. The Lemurian Culture’s center of consciousness was the emotional and spiritual dimensions of existence, unlike our modern world’s mentally based focus. They had a deep connection to the heart, which allowed the expression of unconditional love for the Divine and each other. Lemurian Seed Crystals also help us to maintain our connection with our spiritual source and teach us how to be both individuals and integral parts of the cosmic design. This is mirrored by each seed crystal’s energetic connection to all other seed crystals, while on the individual level, simultaneously doing its own work to pass forth their knowledge and programming for the earth, in preparation for the transitions and shifting changes in consciousness. There comes a responsibility, to honor and work with, when you and your Lemurian choose one another.

Enchanting Crystal Friends Arrive to Powerfully Support a New You


As promised, from before I left on vacation, today kicks off the emergence of new crystalline friends now available to bring into your heart and home, just in time for the holidays and the approach of the 12/21/12 birthing Winter Solstice of the New Earth.

I have found my crystal friends to be extremely supportive with the energies currently and am never without one by my side, even when I sleep and when I was off exploring on my trip. The ones meant for you will always speak to your heart and choose you, just as much as you choose them. In some cases, they really try to get your attention, but many of us aren’t always “listening.”

I have 3 new individual crystal beauties to share. These are NOT currently available in the Joyful Earth Crystals Etsy shop. If you are interested in one of these, you can email me at tania@taniamarie.com with questions and to request a secure Paypal invoice if one is calling to.

See each below for all of their unique information and attributes, as well as specific details on pricing. The 2 large crystals are available “at price” or “best offer” for a limited time of 1 week until 11/25. Then they will go to full price only in the shop.

We currently also have several new pieces in the crystal jewelry collection that you CAN find in the online shop, including quartz crystal skull pendants, jade wrist mala, amazonite and obsidian beaded bracelet with dolphin clasp, snakeskin jasper and obsidian beaded necklace, and an ocean jasper crystal pendant.

To see and read more about them and the rest of the collection, please visit: Joyful Earth Crystals

Here are the 3 new crystal beings looking to work in partnership with their new keepers. Perhaps that might be you. Click on photos to enlarge details:

 

Stunning and Magical Quartz 

$444 or best offer plus shipping 

444 number sequence meaning – The angels are surrounding you now, reassuring you of their love and help. Don’t worry because the angels’ help is nearby

This crystal is brilliant beyond words. Inside you will find a dancing angel, faery, or butterfly, depending on your heart’s vision. She is crystal clear with gorgeous ethereal veils at the bottom and phenomenally magnificent rainbows throughout. This crystal will not only leave you breath-taken, but is really powerfully focused.

Sitting just over 7 1/2″ tall, 3 1/2″ at the widest part of her base, and 2 3/4″ at her thickest point, this quartz is also a Dow Point crystal, which makes her potent and rare. A Dow Point crystal has 3 seven-sided faces and 3 triangle faces. The 3 triangle faces are called “Receivers” and help you to receive abundance and gifts. The 3 seven-sided faces are called Generator (or transmitter/manifestor) faces and help program things and process in support of new projects. This makes her a powerful heart activation friend that will assist in quantum leap transformations. For more wonderful and in depth information on Dow Crystals please visit: Pixie Crystals. Coupling her powerful attributes with the enrapturing dancing or flying angel/faery/butterfly, creates the energy of flow, freedom, joy, and grace in all that you intend.

The rainbow rays found within her offer a beautiful lesson to share. The symbolism of how the cosmic healing rays of rainbows are created (sun light reflects off miniature water crystals and prismatically transforms them into an arc of color) when sun light is blocked from heavy rain clouds of life and then the light breaks through, mirrors a spirit beaming forth out of the dark and into the light in glorious fullness and perfect order. The balance and perfection of rainbows teach us how to look at the full array of life, not just focus on any one aspect – including the joy, anger, sadness, and beauty – all at once. Rainbows are a symbol of hope and inspiration, helping us to make the best out of life, as well as a symbol of harmony in unity. The rainbows within crystals are born within, sometimes emerging from perhaps a fall or trauma during its growth inside the earth’s womb.

Quartz Properties: power stone that harmonizes and balances, has the ability to receive, store and send energy, powerful manifestation tool, the most versatile, multipurpose, powerful healing stone due to its unique helical spiral crystalline form, a master healer that can be used for any and all conditions, stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance, takes energy to the most perfect state that is possible going back to before the dis-ease set in, cleanses and enhances the organs and subtle bodies and acts as a deep soul cleanser, connects the physical dimension with the mind, ultimate “anything stone,” radiates all the color vibrations within the spectrum of light, can be utilized and programmed for any use which bring light and energy into our spiritual bodies, a “stone of the mind,” quartz can be used to imprint with any energy or information and helps to focus the mind, purifies the spiritual, mental, and physical, a powerfully protective stone bringing the purified energy in, used to perform diagnostic healing, and to communicate with spirits and other worlds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Twin Energy Spirit Quartz

$33 plus shipping

* When you see the number 3 patterns: The Ascended Masters are near you, desiring you to know that you have their help, love, and companionship. 

This is a truly magical twin pair of ice lilac Spirit Quartz, infused with hints of golden Citrine that symbolize the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine in unity. It stands just over 2 1/2″ tall, 2 1/4″ at the widest part of its base, and 2″ thick. In the back the two are melded together by a beautiful cluster, almost like the offspring creation of their integration. Spirit Quartz is just so sparkly sweet, light, lovely, and joyous and this crystal is no exception to that.

Spirit Quartz is an enchanting crystal also known as Cactus Quartz, Faerie Quartz and Pineapple Quartz. This Spirit Quartz has Citrine embedded in it, which is more rare to find and adds the properties of Citrine to its energy.

Spirit Quartz assists in manifesting the Higher Self through one’s human form. Used in meditation it brings peace of mind and freedom from fear. It gently releases the tensions of your conscious and unconscious fears, allowing you to truly live. Very cleansing and purifying for the aura. Stimulates the Crown Chakra, helps to harmonize the levels of the aura, the Chakras, meridians and the physical body, brings high frequency energy into the physical body, and dispels negative attachment and entities, as it repairs “holes” in the etheric body. Spirit Quartz balances the astral body and brings the Chakras and merdians up to their optimal level of functioning.

It provides community insight, helping to stimulate group cohesiveness and a willingness to work together. It also assists with bringing “group” energy into harmony and peace of other crystals in the surrounding environment. It is a wonderful companion for someone experiencing the loss of a loved one, helping to integrate understanding. It helps generate abundant healing energy to be used in group healings.

Spirit Quartz helps stimulate manifestation of abundance toward what is desired. It is good for energy magnification and cleansing of chakras, providing radiant white light. It helps elevate one’s sense of self worth, can be used to facilitate ascension, opens and activates the crown chakra, and helps to remove fear. Spirit Quartz helps to focus the energy deep within the essence of the matter and goes to the heart it to help in restructuring physical, mental and emotional levels. It helps to see the duality of one’s nature, helping to rectify the negative and build the positive, and assists in gaining a stronger connection with the Inner Self as well as Higher Self.

It can be used to treat skin eruptions and allergic skin reactions (via elixir) and also has been used in colon disorder treatments to detoxify the body, as well as treats obsessive behavior patterns.
