This is a beautiful 3 minute time-lapse video from photographer Terje Sorgjerd that was shot over a period of seven days at El Teide, Spain’s highest mountain. It takes you on a visual journey that bridges Earth and Cosmos, reminding you of the beauty all around you daily that is taken for granted while other things are the focal point in your life.
This Earth and Universe we live in is a gift beyond measure. I hope you can stop today and breathe in what is all around you and see your beauty mirrored back to you.

Grateful for my friends that share beautiful things with me. ❤
I’ve been seeing myself drawn back to my cosmic roots with the themes that are showing up in my paintings lately and what I feel resonation with in channeling onto canvas. I thought it would be fun to share a piece (this is only the right corner of a large 4 1/2 x 5 foot painting) of one of my painting commissions I did many years ago. It was really the doorway to this cosmic opening that I’ve seen always prevalent in essence in my work, and then in tangible cycles literally showing up along my artistic journey. A revealing glimpse into the depth of Tania can be discovered through the work I am passionately inspired to create.
Here are some poetic reflections from Walt Whitman on enduring love and our connection to everything.
Walt Whitman : On the Beach at Night
On the beach at night, Stands a child with her father, Watching the east, the autumn sky. Up through the darkness, While ravening clouds, the burial clouds, in black masses spreading, Lower sullen and fast athwart and down the sky, Amid a transparent clear belt of ether yet left in the east, Ascends large and calm the lord-star Jupiter, And night at hand, only a very little above, Swim the delicate sisters the Pleiades. From the beach the child holding the hand of her father, Those burial-clouds that lower victorious soon to devour all, Watching, silently weeps. Weep not, child, Weep not, my darling, With these kisses let me remove your tears, The ravening clouds shall not long be victorious, They shall not long possess the sky, they devour the stars only in apparition, Jupiter shall emerge, be patient, watch again another night, the Pleiades shall emerge, They are immortal, all those stars both silvery and golden shall shine out again, The great stars and the little ones shall shine out again, they endure, The vast immortal suns and the long-enduring pensive moons shall again shine. Then dearest child mournest thou only for Jupiter? Considerest thou alone the burial of the stars? Something there is, (With my lips soothing thee, adding I whisper, I give thee the first suggestion, the problem and indirection,) Something there is more immortal even than the stars, (Many the burials, many the days and nights, passing away,) Something that shall endure longer even than lustrous Jupiter, Longer than sun or any revolving satellite, Or the radiant sisters the Pleiades.
I just completed a custom commission painting for a very dear Canadian client who is an amazing soul brother and light in this world. He is one of the very few people I know that is always a bright, positive and ever-giving light. Even when going through the most difficult challenges life can throw a person’s way – he still faces it all with courageous and humble joy and love. He has been a supportive gift in my life since as long as I have known him and I am grateful.
He and I have collaborated on several creations in the past and now was a chance to bring one of his ideas into creative manifestation, which I intend to be supportive to his personal journey and current processes. There are no coincidences and the timing of this synchronous creation indeed will be a portal of intention that can take him into a new vibrational experience of life.
He commissioned me to create a portal painting and had a specific cosmic theme he shared with me that I was to bring to life with a “T twist.” And so Through the Stargate that you see pictured here, was born.
This painting in person has some very cool gold metallic touches and really vibrant blues, with touches of lilac, whites and creamy pink amidst black with deep navy blue undertone.
Another cool synchronicity is the timing of the birthing of this painting, as today marks 9 years ago that I brought my dear Nestor (twin soul bunny) home for the first time with me, who is now a multi-dimensional being of the Cosmos. And I have discovered that in every one of my new paintings, my parents have pointed out that a rabbit image shows up, among so many other animal and symbolic images that can be found if you take a moment to “see.”

I began a series in 2006, which took me on a four year intensive process of healing at great depths. I named it “In Lak’ech,” which is a Mayan saying meaning “I am another yourself.” Through my personal healing journey on inter-dimensional levels, I was also simultaneously embarking on a major collective healing journey that not only bridged all time, but took me across the world to sacred sites where the energetic work could be accessed in greater depth.
This series represents the Five Elements of Fire, Earth, Air, Water, and Spirit that speak to the mind, body, heart, and soul, personally and collectively. They contain within them Mayan Sacred Glyphs as a connective thread through which a message of healing was revealed. They also weave in earth, cosmos, honor for all beings, astrology and planetary influences, ancient civilizations and potent symbolism. They are each embedded with healing messages that weave a visual story through infused telepathic encoding and act as healing, Reiki portals that transport the viewer into an altered consciousness where personal tranformation can take place.
This process of creation took me along a path where discoveries, inspirations, and compassion became the guiding lights of my journey. These encoded “Healing Portals” take us on a journey of integration and healing, as we embrace a return to natural harmony and imbue the beauty and value known by the Ancients into the now, along with healing those elements that it is time to evolve forward from. In light of the “Future of Education,” there is much to learn from Ancient wisdom; learning from the past in order to flourish in the now. Mother Earth is calling us to remember. The Universe is reminding us to believe. The healing revealed will be as unique as the individual experiencing it. The creation process has been a personally healing and integrative journey. However, as this healing takes place for me, that energy becomes available to everyone. These five paintings were a landmark anchoring of my life’s work and threshold to a new doorway of creative expression and being. Each painting has been executed over a period of one year each (excluding the last two that represented a speeding up of the process and time), from first inspiration to completion, mirroring a personal and collective process revealed and executed in divine timing.

Humanity has been awakening to a whole new experience, where rapid,
collective vibrational changes are taking place on the planet. Changes that
call for adjustments to be made on our part, where shifting to a path
of harmony involves consciously moving out of the current path of convenience.
Accelerated vibrations are rapidly increasing and needing to be embraced, but this
does not insinuate a “better than” feeling towards current vibrations. They are simply different and in need of compassionate integration, as all parts create the whole. Evolution is rapidly upon us, as we are called to remember and reactivate the beingness of the light bodies we once knew. We are phase shifting from one experience to a multi-dimensional experience, as we journey through the opening doorways we are manifesting with this
Earth is mirroring the shift movement taking place and experiencing a
birthing cycle in response. In this way, she is able to match the vibrational
changes we are moving into. In order to aid her in this transition and work in
harmony with the process, more conscious awareness and choices become
prevalent, as well as the need to always act from the knowingness of our
hearts. Challenges can be avoided, if we realize our connective thread and
choose to assist with the love of our light beingness. It is our natural
ability to adapt and to walk the Earth with harmonic presence.
We are all treasured children of Earth. She awaits our reciprocating support
and love during these vital transitions. Awareness, respect, nurturing, and love:
ingredients to cultivate the New Earth and a connective, joyful experience of
We are the guardians of our Earth and she relies on our honoring this
partnership with her. And the most powerful way we can support one another
cohesively, is to be a shining example of unconditional love. It’s simply the choice to be a
joyful being in every moment through love, honor, and conscious choices. We
have a profound affect on others in the smallest of ways. Just saying what is
in your heart reflects more power than any act of force or attached expectations. We are not here to proselytize another.
We are simply here on a joy quest to master the art of devouring the beauty of life. Allow the law of attraction to unfold, as it knows how to do the work on its own. Those attracted to you either are those that will get “it,” or they are those in search of “it.” “It” meaning, what you are emanating from the heart that others resonate with. Not much is necessary to be done or said. A simple, joy and love-filled smile from you can say it all.
Interesting piece of trivia: Did you know that if you rearrange the letters in the word “HEART” you get “EARTH” and vice versa? This is very significant symbolically in connecting the two vibrationally. When the frequency and vibration of our Hearts change,
so too does the Earth’s frequency, as a direct mirroring reflection. One is not
isolated from the other and so when we consciously expand our capacities for
compassion, non-judgment, and conscious awareness through unconditional love,
global change is inevitable and Mother Earth will flourish with the same joy.
I love the magic in seemingly arbitrary things we take for granted.
A way to this new experience of ever-loving, harmonious, magical, abundant, joyous, expansive synchronicity, is in finding it increasingly important to move towards peacefully cocreating with conscious awareness. There is power in one, but the power of many is unimaginably potent. Moving from duality to Unity Consciousness creates change towards
a balanced New Earth experience. And part of that balance involves a new
partnership between “Awakened Humanity” and the “Elemental Kingdoms of Nature” together with the other “Kingdoms of Consciousness.” New relationships between Humanity and Nature are increasingly magnified in significance now more than ever.
Living with respect, love, and with compassionate sharing helps us to no longer feel alone.
Together we have much beauty to experience and so much more we can achieve. Becoming skilled with cocreative processes aligns and activates evolutionary vibrations to bring us closer to Source/All That Is/The Universe/Our God Essence.
I believe it’s never too late. We can manifest change in the here and now, that will transform the present, create a bright new future, and reshape the past. Our power is in
the present moment. With every thought, belief, feeling, and action, it is possible
to create miracles in the now. We need to believe and nurture a bit
of that childlike hope we once had.
The animals have messages to share with us as well. We need only to listen and
resonate with their vibrations in order to receive it. With intelligence and
conscious awareness comes responsibility. The animals have been communicating the
Universe’s transitions. They’re showing us how our choices are affecting the
Earth. It is no mystery that change is needed. There is so much we can learn and share from and with them. They remind us of the beauty of our Earthly existenece and the need for integration of all of our parts. As we progress intellectually and spiritually, we mustn’t forget our emotions and our physical bodies and the beauty that manifests when we
harmonize them into intuitive, instinctual sychronicity.
May the peace of the nature of the cosmos be in each and every one of us.
We are involved in an evolutionary process of our human existence wherein the collective
consciousness has been moving through the energy centers of the Chakra system. By fully embracing Chakra Four, we find balance and the ability to propel into the next dimensions. Life is a continual, progressive opportunity. This Fourth (or Heart Chakra) lies center of the Chakra system and acts as integrator of the two polarities of body and spirit. It creates a bridge that merges and disintegrates all boundaries and allows us access to our true essence and the sharing of that with others.
In order to access its energy we need to create balance and harmony between all polarities, which is inclusive of all aspects that are represented by the active male and passive female archetypes (including the dual counterpart within each) within self and without; those of
light and shadow, mind and body, physicality and spirituality, conscious and
subconscious, harmony between races, and ecological balance. The focus is
that of integration. All aspects are essential and each an important tool in their own way, enabling us to honor, as a unit, the heart, body, mind and soul, Earth, and all of creation. The Collective Consciousness is at the brink of a paradigm shift that we are all a part of, but with awareness, can now actively take part in.
Cellular memories compel us to perpetuate repeated experiences until we have
learned to choose from a higher good and with a shift of perspective. Realizing
that change is necessary and embracing the process will help support guidance
into the higher frequencies of the energy centers within each Chakra, beginning
with the Heart (Fourth Chakra) – The Bridge. Or as I like to call it, the
It is through Universal Love, embracing the value and beauty of
creation in its many forms, and dispelling of fear that we can come together
and heal our Earth. Living consciously and compassionately for all of creation
is crucial so that we may realign with the Cosmos. Universal Love and Harmony is
needed to bring us to higher frequencies of being in the New Age that is upon us. The time is now with no further excuses. The time is now for dispelling of all fear and to remember. The time is now for coming together, for realizing your authenticity, and to see beyond the veil. The time is now for unconditional compassion at the deepest heart-core level.
“The greatest wisdom is in simplicity,” Mr Barrios advised before leaving Santa Fe. “Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness. It’s not complex or elaborate. The real knowledge is free. It’s encoded in your DNA. All you need is within you. Great teachers have said that from the beginning. Find your heart, and you will find your way.” Carlos Barrios is the author of Kam Wuj: El Libro del Destino, a book published in Spanish that explores Mayan teachings.
The Inspiration Behind Emerald Bridge:
In the human energy system, the source of powerful and creative, unconditional
love energy lies at the center of your chest in the Heart Chakra, or “Anahata,”
in Sanskrit. From its middle position as fourth in a system of seven chakras, it
is the balancing integrator of opposites (between body and spirit, male and
female, persona and shadow, ego and unity) and acts as an energetic “bridge”
between the lower and upper chakras. It is symbolized by a lotus of twelve
petals and the color green, with emerald as one of its associated gemstones. It
is from this place of peaceful centeredness that love emanates as divine power.
This journey of the heart was the inspiration behind creating a
compassionately conscious business that fuses visionary services and creations.
And so, Emerald Bridge was born to reflect and embody the divine and powerful
essence of the Heart Chakra and its integrative, healing synergy. It is my hope
for Emerald Bridge to also inspire today’s visionaries of the world. I believe in the importance of cultivating personal expressions of creative passion and actively manifesting visions into reality. I encourage you to take courageous steps in following your heart’s joy, and to shift into new realities of experience.
Emerald Bridge is an evolving business entity that melds visionary creativity, healing and heart with intention of cultivating authentic expression and bringing people together in joyful co-creation. The future of Emerald Bridge is continually evolving to encompass
new services, creations, offerings and events. To co-create, support, or share
ideas for collaborative projects, don’t hesitate to contact me.
