raw at the belascoExploring the Belasco and the Cool Synchronicities that Increase My Excitement About Being Part of this Event:

Yesterday was a very full day with a lot of unexpected twists, as I was getting through some things before heading off for a very quick trip to Tucson, AZ this weekend, but no matter how busy, there’s always a chance for some magick. It was also yesterday that we had our scheduled walk-through and space-choosing for the upcoming April 11th event showcase, MARVEL. Appointments got moved around, other things came up needing to get done, and right before I headed to Los Angeles, I received a beautiful birthday gift from an equally beautiful friend of a smokey and druzy quartz pendant in the mail (the celebrations continue) that set the tone for my journey.

raw at the belascoI sent Reiki to my drive, as I always do, and once again made it to LA in record time and actually ended up 1 hour early to the Belasco Theater – the venue for the show, RAW: Los Angeles Presents MARVEL. My intention was to be able to get back earlier, as I had an appointment, and so was the result.

Just as I pulled up I had the feeling to text one of the Production Assistants to see how early they might get there, hoping I wouldn’t have to sit there an hour, and found that she had just pulled in (from Orange County too) at the same early time. I took the street front parking and made my way in.

It is a really fantastic old theater with charm and a very interesting vibe. I was happy to have arrived there early so I could take in the energy on my own. As thebelasco.com shares: “A relic of the early 1900s, the Belasco Theater has lay dormant for more than 20 years and is making its grand debut once again. Located on Hill Street in the heart of downtown Los Angeles, the Belasco is now a multi-purpose event and entertainment complex. Its production potential is unrivaled in Southern California, as the venue houses the largest D&B Audiotechnik Sound System in the region as well as a state-of-the art lighting system. From nightlife to special events to fine dining, the modern reimagining of this historic theatre has something to satisfy all tastes and interests.”

raw at the belascoAfter talking with the very sweet and gracious PA, I got the lay of the land and explored on my own. As she went off to take care of things, I was left in the massive theater by myself, which was really cool to just be with the energy and to be able to feel out where best aligned for me in choosing a space for the show. Having had the time with her before had also provided insights to assist and learned about all the cool aspects and artist set-ups for this eclectic show.

After a bit, a few of the other indie artists started to then show up and they took sign ins in order of our arrivals. Apparently, you get to choose a space in order of when you arrive and so I was able to do so first and when I looked (lol, as i just wrote, when I looked, my word count is at 444! – so LOVE it!) anway…when I looked at the map and the area that I was most interested, which is a cool, separate, old-charm, loungey room at the top, I was immediately drawn to the numbers of the spaces in that area. They were in the 40’s and of course I instantly knew #44 it would be. How more perfect of message. (If you haven’t read my recent blog on how much repeating number 4’s show up for me, this is what I’m referring to: Seeing All 4’s)

raw at the belascoI was able to leave directly after since I’d already completed the goals set forth, while others continued to arrive, and left when it was officially supposed to start and made it back home early and with plenty of time for my scheduled appointment. A perfect ending to the day and I was left with a heart full of gratitude once again.

Needless to say, it was just a way of reiterating how much we are part of the creation process of our experiences. While I could have been stressed with the drive or any number of things, I was not, and found my peace within, as well as my empowerment through sending Reiki. I was also filled with excitement and am very much looking forward to this event and being part of such a great group of people and very talented artists. RAW really is a fabulous organization supporting the creative arts to keep thriving and growing. THANK YOU RAW!

Diving Deep into the Inspirational Abyss – Creative Energy & Expressions Are Flowing!


Santa Monica Pier

This photo taken by my friend Lynne on the Santa Monica Pier last week of me in my french beret had me rolling in laughter. Not only do I look like a little girl, but it just so captured the abundant inspirational feelings I have. Not to mention some odd unidentified flying object is to my right unbeknownst to me in my play time. LOL

Maybe it’s all that beautiful ocean energy and nature I’ve been immersed in lately, the retreat in Bimini, the unlimited Source-well of creativity and inspiration I feel connected to evermore so, or simply “being in the flow,” but another huge creative wave has arrived and I”m ready to surf it through what ever waters, and to what ever shore, it takes me. 🙂 Right now, I’m feeling a lot of high-vibed flow with all this creative energy and magickal experiences, an invigorating hike today, and some new Andara crystal friends sitting on my desk – woo! Yes I am loving  this energy. Are you?

This year seems to be a supportive year for “seeing” the beauty in the miracles of life around us and sharing beauty with the world through our individual gifts. It’s a wonderful time for cultivating creative new endeavors, being the Michelangelo of your own life, and diving deep into the inspirational abyss.

I have SO been enjoying seeing all the new creations that others are manifesting lately and all the new leaps everyone is taking. I LOVE it! There is SO MUCH talent out there and it’s so amazing to me to see people come into realizing that about themselves and what they have to offer the world. “Rocking it” is far from doing you all justice to say. The energy abound is simply stunning and it only gets better.

Just remember to create balance, nurture and recharge yourself, be gentle, remember to add “flow with grace” when asking for things, and love, without judgment, every minute and every part of your magnificence in creation.

To be creative means to be in love with life. You can be creative only if you love life enough that you want to enhance its beauty, you want to bring a little more music to it, a little more poetry to it, a little more dance to it. ~Osho

I have learned to flow with where I’m guided in any given moment, rather than dictate or create ideas of what that should look like. In doing this, I find stress removed, balance in my life, divine timing unfolding, and optimal ingredients for fulfilling outcomes on all levels. My intuition and heart are my guidance. My trust, belief, imagination, passion, and connection are my wings to get there.

The awesome thing is….you can never use up all of your creative juices! It’s one of the most amazingly abundant sources of energy that constantly recreates and reinvigorates itself and just gets better the more you courageously tap into your imagination and dreams and release all judgment and fear. The challenge is to keep evolving into greater depths of exploration in order to bring forth ever-new expressions. Nothing is done. There is always more to have fun with!

You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have. ~Maya Angelou

As you know, painting had taken a small hiatus at the end of last year for me, as I was working on other projects and preparations for Bimini. But I heard the message to wait until I return, as I would receive answer to what to create next, when I do, and where I would be led. For me, this is not unusual, as many times I have been guided to halt things until returning from sacred journeys, since the transformative energy changes the course of things and brings in new inspiration and messages – sometimes entirely new directions and life evolutions.

I have found that what is important to get done will be revealed and WILL get done and the rest will just happen as it needs to, or isn’t important to do in the first place. So by not rushing into it, it may actually end up falling away. Or, it comes back with more focused direction that is very clear and more aligned, by letting it percolate.

But, of course the innate artist within is never gone, even if on hiatus. She just takes takes the passenger seat for the time she needs to take everything in, recharge, reinvigorate, and learn to be a powerful presence in new ways. And with that pause, she is then ready again to bring forth the fruits of her labor.

Needless to say, alongside some of the other projects, events, and retreats for this year I’m working on, a sweep of creative excitement is abound. I am also in the middle of another cleaning-out phase and that also has great energy-shifting potentials!

I’ve been really enjoying the sacred tattoo design vibes coming in right now. The energy of the latest pieces are really mirroring the collective, as always, and I’m about to embark on a new round of designs that I’m excited to see what will be unveiled in the process. It’s always a welcome mystery and journey I feel deeply honored to walk with each client. ❤

Yesterday, I found a coupon and was off to the store purchasing a bunch of canvases for this artistic surge explosion. I now have 13! canvases awaiting me. YAY! I love choosing canvases and letting them speak to me, as I feel the essence already trickle through their unique energy of what they want created on them. Four of these canvases will be to complete my Universal ARKitecture series and the other 9 are for new creative visions I’ve received. FUN!

Yes, you heard right. Only 4 more pieces left in the Universal ARKitecture series. This is one of the several shifts and messages I received from the Bimini trip. Originally, I felt there would be 33, but received there will only be 12 now and that likely they may become a calendar upon completion. As always, the conclusion remains to be seen, but 12 is the new number and 4 more are still to come. I’ve actually already received the 4 animals ahead this time as well, which is an interesting twist, as before they only came when I was about ready to paint. So this is very cool to already know and now just to let them emerge forth in their sequence.

The 4 will share owl, harp seal, bighorn sheep, and orangutan wisdom. I’m so excited, as they each have perfect messages for the now I feel. Looking forward to what they each have to reveal to me and the depths they will take me too. 

An artist paints, dances, draws, writes, designs, or acts at the expanding edge of consciousness. We press into the unknown rather than the known. This makes life lovely and lively. ~Julia Cameron

Garden of the Gods

In the meantime, don’t forget that prints and originals are available on the 8 paintings, already completed and widely embraced, in the Universal ARKitecture series. Several size options are available to meet your needs. You can read about each individual painting’s message here: Universal ARKitecture by clicking on each painting’s image to enlarge for detail and information.

Originals are available via payment plans to meet your needs with a full refund if not satisfied, minus all shipping charges. Special discounts are available with purchase of the whole series of originals, or more than one original. Contact me with questions and inquiries at tania@taniamarie.com.

To refresh your memory on the focus of these paintings, here is some information on the series:

Universal ARKitecture shares messages spoken through the many voices of the animal spirits of the Earth, focusing on many of the endangered and threatened species, uniting us through a Universal language of the heart. These sacred vessel animal spirit paintings hold antidotes for a new “ARKitecural” plan and code of life for creating the New Earth experience. An “ark” by definition and historical understanding was a vessel built by Noah to house and keep safe his family and pairs of every animal of the Earth. It is also known as a sacred chest where the ancient Hebrews kept the two tablets containing the Ten Commandments. In either form, it is seen as a sacred and protective structure that contained the promise of a new life where a new architectural system of life codes would be embraced and instituted to start anew. Shamanic practice honors the wisdom and power in all things on Earth, believing that everything has something to teach. These power animals act as guides to share their wisdom on how we can better cultivate awareness towards living consciously. Compassion demonstrated in care of these precious beings, as well as understanding their connection to us, helps nurture the Earth collective at large.

Every day is an opportunity to be creative – the canvas is your mind, the brushes and colours are your thoughts and feelings, the panorama is your story, the complete picture is a work of art called, ‘my life’. Be careful what you put on the canvas of your mind today – it matters. ~Innerspace

The remaining 9 canvases, as mentioned, are for a new wave of smaller, yet extremely powerful, energy creations that I will be starting shortly and in partnership with some of my favorite things. 😉 A new adventure awaits, as well as a deeper journey into the courageous heart of expression! I am very excited about these and have yet to know how they will come to be fully, but I trust the “how” follows my embracing the “Yes, I’m in!” I sense these will be a synergistic partnership highlighting a special connection shared, where subject becomes guide and I am its loyal servant. Stay tuned for an upcoming blog on these new creations channeling through. Exciting!

A lot of these new creations will be featured in the upcoming April 11th RAW: Los Angeles Presents Marvel art showcase event.  This will be such a fun night of indie artists from so many genres coming together in community sharing of their gifts. If you’re in the area, I really hope you can join us at the Belasco Theater, anytime from 6 – 10pm, and if not please share your appreciation for the arts with a ticket purchase, as the proceeds go to supporting the indie artists.

I’m about to head off this weekend for a week in Reno and Lake Tahoe (visiting one of my absolute favorite spots on the globe, the family, and celebrating, as well as pre-celebrating three of our birthdays that are all close to each other), which I know will prove to be very inspiring and revitalizing for me to be in the magickal energies of the lake and to have fun in the beautiful alpine high altitudes I so thrive in. With the convenience of driving, rather than flying, this enables me to bring a few things along with me to explore my creative inspirations while there, including painting, reading, writing, and even making a couple of jewelry pieces for myself that I felt inspired to create from some of my natural treasures discovered. No, this doesn’t mean I will be taking up making jewelry myself, but I AM going to have fun creating these shaman pieces I am guided to make.

I’m very much in the creative flow and I LOVE it! The deeper I go, the more possibilities are available. I have always believed all things are possible and will never accept anything less.

What do you desire to create anew today? Perhaps the reinvention into a courageous heart could be the most valuable creation to begin with.

A truly creative person rids him or herself of all self-imposed limitations. ~Gerald G. Jampolsky

Join Me & Fellow Indie Artists April 11th for RAW: Los Angeles Presents MARVEL


RAW natural born artistsThere’s an awesome “celebration of the arts” showcase event coming up in Los Angeles on April 11th, 2013 that I’m excited to be a part of, as I really believe in what this is all about. This event is RAW: Los Angeles Presents MARVEL – and it’s sure to be a fun evening of eclectic talent and indie artists from a plethora of genres coming together in community.

How fun is that? Multi-faceted artists and art all under one roof at the same time is a recipe for inspiration and “raw” excitement if nothing else, but that’s a lot!

For those of you not familiar with RAW here’s a little background. RAW: natural born artists is an independent arts organization, for artists, by artists. They are a community made up of creative individuals across the nation – 54 cities across the U.S. and Australia and this year will be launching in China and Europe – that host monthly showcases that spotlight indie talent.

It all started when a small-town girl graduated high school and moved to the big city of Los Angeles, CA with a wish to pursue her life-long dream of becoming a fashion designer. After pouring her heart, soul, sweat and tears into her work, she started to think, “there’s got to be a better way to get my work out there.” This kick started her taking matters into her own hands and in 2005, Heidi Luerra threw her first multi-faceted showcase in Los Angeles and discovered her calling – to create a platform to support and share the works of all the talented people out there.

RAW’s mission is to provide support to independent artists to inspire and cultivate creativity and they encourage the creative success of the many visionaries and storytellers of our generation.

RAW is a multi-faceted arts showcase that handpicks and spotlights talent from various sectors within the artistic realm: independent film, fashion, music, visual art, hair design, makeup artistry, modeling, DJing, photography, performance art and all creative arts. The RAW season runs from February to October. They provide a platform for independent artists of all creative expression to be seen, heard, and loved. RAW executes this through two main avenues: grassroots arts showcases which spotlight one artist in each of the categories, as well as through the exclusive RAWartists.org web community. They serve as a link between the arts community, industry professionals, press and like organizations, aspiring to—with the help of many of its supporters—connect and unify creative individuals.

I love their devotion to supporting the creative arts, as I feel it is such a vital aspect to our lives, just as I shared in this post: The Intrinsic Value of Creativity and Art – Cultivating Your Inner Artist

Needless to say, April 11th will be a fun evening and a chance to see some really talented up and coming artists, as well as enjoy the entertainment, all while supporting the arts!

The line-up of artists is only JUST starting to come in, as they will have upwards of 60 individual and unique artists at this event. So you can keep checking out the line up online, or just stop in and be pleasantly surprised by the plethora of talent that will be in presence. As the event approaches more information on the artists, lineup and this specific showcase’s details will be available. I’ll keep you posted as they come in.

And even if you can’t make it, or are not in the area, ticket purchases go to supporting the independent artists who are sharing their valuable creative expression with the world. So you can still be a part of the art, by supporting from your heart.

I’m still feeling out the eclectic mix that I will be sharing at the event which may include pieces from my Universal ARKitecture and In Lak’ech series, some of my fav originals,  AND more than likely some fresh new creations that I’m in process of receiving, plus more!
