Walking the Path of the Great Central Sun ~ March Equinox Sacred Journey to Peru with Shaman Amaru & Reiki Master Teacher Tania Marie


 

machu-picchu (1)I am very excited to finally and officially announce 2015’s first retreat of the year, which has been a long time in the making. As with all things, I listen patiently to guidance on where and when these sacred experiences are to come together. It wasn’t surprising to see how it unfolded to create the timing and beauty of the energy it now is.

IMG_4306I journeyed to Peru back in November of 2008 on my own sacred journey. It was then that I met and became very dear friends with my Cosmic brother, Amaru, who was leading our experience. We’ve remained in touch over the years and here we are now merging our energies to bring to you this empowering experience for the upcoming Equinox of March 2015, where we will blend our gifts of service together to support you and the Earth.

condor3Our journey will begin on March 11th, take us through the Equinox on March 20th, and conclude either the 22nd or 25th, depending upon the option that you choose.

March 20th, 2015 carries a threefold energy with it…it will be the Equinox, a New Moon, and also a Total Solar Eclipse in the sign of Pisces (my native Sun Sign). Astrologically, this represents new beginnings, planting inspirational seeds, renewal, growth, revitalization, and the aspect of blooming in all its glory.

condorMarch 20th is one of a few major celestial occurrences taking place in 2015, which include a 3rd and 4th Total Lunar Eclipses of the Blood Moon Tetrad – March’s Equinox lying in the middle of this sequence.

Needless to say, I am already feeling the depth of this journey I’ve been called to facilitate, as part of my soul mission to help anchor in energies on the Earth grid at these sacred energy vortex areas.

This and July’s Reiki & Horses Retreat in British Columbia will be the last opportunities to join me for one of these special experiences to anchor in the energies both for the Earth collective, in Cosmic alignment, and for yourself.

We will be walking the path of remembrance and activation of Source within (the Nameless and Omnipresent One) on this journey, as we connect and align ourselves with the emanations we are of that Universal Light anchored in the Great Central Sun – traveling the Ancient ways, connecting deeply with Terra (Earth), and infusing the Light in the Heart of your Essence that will propel your ascension into Vibration of Light.

I look forward to seeing who else will be hearing and embracing their call and joining us.

Below you will find the itinerary for our upcoming Spring 2015 Sacred Journey. If you have questions and/or would like to register, you can contact me here: CONTACT TANIA MARIE

Markahuasi is a very powerful, energetic, sacred place up at roughly 4000 meters (13,123.36 feet in elevation), with some areas ranging 3,850 to 4,200 meters. The reason it is known as “The Stone Forest” is because of its landscape of curious, large rock formations that create a “forest” of stone human and animal figures. Due to an abundance of metal the rocks are magnetic and really can be felt by the energetically sensitive. Due to the unknown molding technique of these rock carvings, some say the formations are simply due to natural erosion, while other theories speak to their creation by Ancient civilizations of extraterrestrial origin. On clear days there is good visibility of the Pacific Ocean from here and at night you can see the Milky Way, constellations, planets, and often shooting stars.markahuasi

Nature’s Gifts – An Artist’s Inspiration


Gaia’s Gift by Tania Marie – original available for purchase: http://taniamarie.com/gallery2.htm

Painting is my sacred key of life. Like the wing of a butterfly is essential to its flight, creating visionary art is the breath of life to my soul. My inspirational muses are the natural world, Earth’s beautiful creatures, the mystical and ancient worlds, the Cosmos, celebrations of life, expressions of the immensity of love, and conscious, collective awareness.

Nature provides an abundance of miracle beauty to feed the heart and soul of each of us and if you are an artist, there is unlimited inspiration to immerse yourself in to your heart’s content.

When I view the world around me, I see everything as a miraculous  birthing from the source of boundless universal love and creative power that explodes into experience each time a new conception of inspiration takes place through a channel of the Great Central Sun, Universe, God, All That Is, Source….

I honor with deepest gratitude our loving Mother Earth, Gaia, Terra…she endlessly and tirelessly nurtures us with her precious gifts.

My painting pictured left, Gaia’s Gift, was channeled in honor of her and currently I am completing a new piece in my series, Universal ARKitecture that also honors our beloved Terra and connects us to the roots of these ancient origins through another animal spirit guide – the Tortoise.

The mysteries of the Universe cease to amaze. There is unlimited awe-inspiring bursts of creative beauty every fleeting moment.

Spending time in nature is balancing, healing, and integrative for us all. For me in particular, I need time spent immersed in it, as well as soaring the “other” realms. It not only nurtures my soul, but provides inspiration for the work I do, along with a constant sustaining source to fuel me.

Water or its essence, in particular has always been a main source of my healing, energy, creative inspiration, clarity, flow, and sense of home. That may be no wonder by my being a Pisces, but there is definitely a theme of energy I have been surrounded by my entire life and where I chose to birth into. Having lived nearly all of my life on the Southern California coast, this has been a gift to my soul to be near the Pacific Ocean and its Lemurian energies. Each of the other places I lived all either were on the water, by the water, or of watery and Lemurian essence as well. This included living on the water for about a year in Indianola, Washington (on the Kitsap Peninsula in Puget Sound), living in Sedona, Arizona a couple of years, and living at stunning Lake Tahoe, Nevada for a few years.

Definitely life themes for me in where I feel drawn in order to be most naturally me and channel my expressions of that, but being by a large body of water I have found to be a necessity and not a luxury for me – whether close to it, or actually on it. Otherwise, as they say, I feel like a fish out of water….

Needless to say, the water is but one of the magical elements Earth has to share with us. The trees, the animals, flowers, weeds, dirt, sand, rocks, mountains, lava, wind, etc. each have their own majesty. And as an artist, I view them through a different lens, which is one of the reasons I am always photographing what I see, as I find it all so spectacular and like “instant art.” I’m like a little girl unwrapping gifts on Christmas morning every time I see something new, as each fleeting moment is full of creative spontaneity manifesting. I envision everything as a painting that has been beautifully brushed into being and I draw upon the awesome explosion of colors as an emulsion of nature’s heart and soul.

Intuitively, I’ve been drawn to get out on the beach with my toes in the sand and feet in the water at least 2-3 times a week lately, either for the day or at sunset or both. It’s mirrored my integrating balance and listening to my intuition, as to what my soul needs for the shifts I am going through and how I can best receive what is needed to assist and serve others. I have found it very helpful with my artistic creations and this new series of paintings I have been channeling forth.

And every time I visit the beach, there is always something amazingly synchronous and beautiful that takes place, as if the Universe is gifting me for listening to the calling. Whether dolphins appear, encounters with pelicans and other sea birds I end up helping, new discoveries, no one there making it a private beach, or otherworldly, amazing sunsets, it all helps my sense of peace and connection. And thereafter, I approach my painting with freshness, flow, and greater access to my innate abilities to bring forth the visions I feel. If I feel anything blocking, the ocean energy quickly helps me to flow once again.

It is because of this that I also recently incorporated the Laguz Rune – literally meaning Water or Ocean, but more importantly the essence of what that is esoterically – into my “Spiritual Skin” I wear as an energetic portal of its embodiment – utilizing the productive energies and honing and being conscious of the undercurrents as well.

The last time I just ventured to the beach for a picnic dinner sunset, there was such a breath-taking dance of color in the sky that surrounded me full-circle. It was so beautiful and it kept shifting moment to moment, each second was like a personal performance I was watching in gratitude and amazement. It is arrays like these that inspire my personal style of painting and of course I not only was running in the sand like a little girl and saying, “wow! look at those colors! and oh my gosh look! and there’s this and that and a portal and a celestial being and…in the sky,” as I snapped away photograph after photograph, but I was also conscious that these displays mirror something for me and that they provide energetic downloads. I always say thanks and feel blessed and honored.

Not only the artist me receives abundant inspiration from such beauty, but the entire “beingness” of me receives all that it needs and in return I mirror that creative expression and love through the gifts I have to give and share with the collective.

I hope you enjoy these photos from my sunset time at my favorite beach in this area – Crystal Cove (no surprise this beautifully named beach would energetically draw me in – love the name and reminds me of all the towns along Lake Tahoe’s shores named after crystals too). The following photos share how the sky developed into one new painting at a time, in front of me while I communed with Source – the Great Central Sun. My way of sharing inspiration so that you may feel the joy and receive an expressive experience of this energy in your own life. And if you too are an artist, I send a little extra creative inspiration energy through these images to support imbuing new energy into your creations. In love, Tania
