Crystal Illuminations ~ Crystal Infused Sacred Paintings as a Source of Light in Your Life


I’ve been working away on a new series of paintings that I have been guided to create. As many of you know, I have a deep connection with our crystalline beings and over time my work has evolved with them. I have recently transitioned out of offering crystal jewelry, as I was getting loud messages that the crystals wanted to come through in a new form that mirrored the evolution of things, partnered with the “artist me” in that abundant creative energy, helped show case them as the natural works of art that they are (infused with healing art encodings), and could be translated into multi-faceted, affordable extensions for anyone to experience.

From this, Crystal Illuminations (crystal infused sacred paintings as a source of light in your life) were channeled as a way for each crystal to emanate and be honored, as they honor and work with us. They are “living” pieces of healing art that draw from and integrate the Earth and the Ethereal, as felt through my heart. Crystal Illuminations are meditational portals that assist you with invoking the key essence of each crystal’s energy into your daily sacred space in order to access new doorways of experience. Each painting is a channeled imprint of the specific crystal’s vibrational resonance as they come through me in the process of working with them and are charged with Reiki energy. Some embody one family of crystal, while others combine more than one, and can range from one to several crystals depending on the energy of each creation.

When you gaze upon or simply have the painting in your personal space, it can assist with energetic activations and help shift the energy in and around you to support desired intentions. Crystal Illuminations are a tool to help draw in a bit of magic as you journey through life.

I’d like to introduce the first 11 Crystal Illuminations that have channeled through so far. These will be debuting at tomorrow night’s RAW Los Angeles Presents MARVEL art showcase, alongside some of my other work. They will be up on my website soon too, but until then, are not officially available for sale as of yet. If there is one that you see and absolutely feel drawn to, you can message me and I will put a “SOLD” sign on it at the show, but I will not be sending any out or officially selling them UNTIL the show.

I had a really fun time photographing these live creations yesterday in my living room where the best lighting is and while doing so some magical things were caught on camera. They were all photographed in the same place and the photos are not manipulated other than cropping. So I am sharing several photos of some of them to include what they actually look like, closeups, as well as the energy and orbs that were captured wanting to come through.

For more information on the properties of each crystal, you can contact me. For now, I would just like to share them so you can feel their essence without the information of what each of their energies represent. Each one has an infusion of either gold or silver metallic, pixie-dusted illumination.

If one of these speaks to you, I can be reached at tania@taniamarie.com. If you’d like to commission a specific Crystal Illumination painting, you can also contact me for a custom quote. Prices include shipping within the U.S. For destinations outside of the U.S. contact me for a quote.

Pietersite – Tempest Stone Holding the Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven


I had so many people message and ask me about this stone that I thought I would repost it and share it with those that may not have had a chance to see it, and for those who requested wanting the information again.  Many shared feeling so drawn to get one themselves, had one they loved and were thankful for the reminder to reconnect with it, or were simply fascinated and feeling one on its way into their life now that the connection had been made, after my Facebook post on it.

So, I decided to re-share the info on Pietersite, a new favorite of mine. (As many know, I share a deep love for my crystal friends and have a knack for procuring very uniquely potent ones). And how I LOVE this stone and its properties. It is a great stone for supporting major transformation needed now on many levels and has been personally very appropriate in many ways for me currently as well.

The photos throughout this post are of my new friend (crystal skull ring) gifted this Christmas that I was intending to draw in. Here is some very cool info on the stone for those interested, that I have found in my researching. I always like to help people to know our crystal friends in the mineral kingdom, as it is their joy that they are here to co-create and co-support with us. They are examples for us to embrace the joys we are here to experience and share as our innate gifts.

Get ready to really rock-n-roll and shift your reality out of illusion, as this is a powerful stone for mega-empowered transformation, while also possessing gentle calming qualities, simultaneously. For myself, one with high nervous anxiety to the point of kundalini shaking experiences from each major transition and opening embraced, this is a great balancing and unconditionally loving one that mirrors the now with empowered, ascended and integrated energy, that works personally and collectively, simultaneously.

Information I gathered from various sources, which I have found to be very true so far in my experience of the stone:

PIETERSITE (Tempest Stone)- Stone of Change. The Pietersite stones mineral exhibits an energetic quality like the quartz. Pietersite has a connection to the storm element and is thus sometimes called the Tempest Stone and helps one see beyond the immediate to beauty in the All. Pietersite energy feels like a highly charged atmosphere of a thunderstorm that enhances telepathy, activates the mind, imagination, and stimulates psychic vision. It links daily consciousness to the spiritual. Used as a stone of vision, it works well during meditation to access higher levels of awareness, stimulating the third eye and increasing your inherent intuition. It enhances courage, tenacity, and ability to maintain or create what is yours. Spiritually and psychically, pietersite helps in working with angels, experiencing visions, and precognition, relating to feminine or goddess energy, as well as astral and dimensional travel. Emotionally, pietersite helps to relax, and release deep emotions in a calmer way. Physically, pietersite balances body fluids, improves nutrition, helps with gastrointestinal functions, and helps the endocrine glands, as it can be used to stimulate the pituitary gland, balances female hormones, alleviates PMS and menopause symptoms. It helps produce, in the proper quantity, the hormones concerned with growth, sex, metabolism, blood pressure and body temperature. Pietersite is also excellent for improving memory. Physically Pietersite helps to calm and activate the nervous system by strengthening the brain and nerves. It is helpful to lungs, liver, intestines, feet, legs.

Pietersite crystallizes in the form of masses, the structure a result of inclusions in jasper where the inclusions are pseudomorphs after asbestos. The color is blue/black and the mineral exhibits a chatoyant quality. It was discovered by Sid Pieters from Namibia South Africa in 1962 while prospecting on a farm there, and is truly lovely. He came across a rather heavy small stone covered in white limestone. As he could not see what was in the stone, he took it back to his work shop in Windhoek, where he cut it open to discover the beautiful blue and gold coloured patterns of the stone which he later named after himself. He returned to the farm in Namibia where he began mining the stone, but after a short period of time, due to most of the material begin stolen, he abandoned the mine. In the meantime however, he registered the find in the mineral records of Britain, and it was published in 1964 as Pietersite. “Of all the gemstones I have seen worldwide , Pietersite is one of the most beautiful, “says Mr Pieters. Due to these characteristics, Pietersite is one of the foremost stones used in jewelry and ornamental pieces worldwide, and as it is a very hard and tough stone lasts for many years.

This stone has come to represent the movement and chaos that break up those energy patterns which are resistant to change. The energy of Pietersite is very forceful and jolts us into personal change. This stone represents change and indicates a need to make changes in your present life. In a lay-out place this stone on the solar plexus chakra, where the flow of energy leads to assimilation and integration. 

Numerology- Pietersite vibrates to the number 9. Unconditional love and forgiveness… [Astrologically: Sign of Leo]

This mineral can be used to stimulate the pineal gland and to assist one during meditative states to experience visions and per-cognitive thoughts. It aligns the energy centers of the body while providing grounding, not to the Earth, but to the etheric body; this rarity in grounding ability has facilitated travel throughout the spheres of existence, culminating in access to the akashic records or your past lifetimes. It allows you to release your connection made in the past albeit early childhood in this lifetime or other lifetime, allowing you to be fully in the present. Pietersite is a spiritual activation stone, helping one find a new direction to move forward. Pietersite helps to unblock pathways that feel blocked or stagnant by activating the chakra system and allowing light energy into one energy field and body.

Pietersite has been said to hold the “keys to the kingdom of heaven” by linking the spiritual realm with everyday living, dispelling illusion and assisting one in the recognition of the beauty of the soul. It exhibits and energy conducive to the actualization of the loving characteristics of the “brotherhood” of humanity. It brings the potential of the individual to the perfection of the source of all being, stimulating dignified power and loving guidance. It promotes loyalty to the self and to the ultimate experience of life. They gently remind you that you are first a spiritual being experiencing the human condition, not the other way around. As it does this we are able to see the lessons and positive outcome of the struggle and problems we face in our daily lives.

It assists one in remaining open to experience, enabling the effect of an illuminated glory when one proceeds to “walk the stage of life’. It further allows one to see beyond the horizon or mirage, helping to support human courage, tenacity, and dauntless effort to both create and maintain beauty. Supports your willpower, strengthens inner guidance, helps recognize truths.

Pietersite is a good stone to use with other high vibration stones such as moldavite. By using them together one can experience a rapid spiritual transformation and revolutionary spiritual insight. Iolite with Pietersite can help one to develop their third eye and psychic ability. Calcite, Phenacite, Natrolite, and Scolecite can be used in conjunction with Pietersite to further enhance inner journeying.
