I feel this one will speak to a lot of you right now.
May has flown by, but I’ve definitely been experiencing the contraction before expansion that Lee reflects here, and the full circle moments.
Which of the themes are coming up for you?
The last time I blogged was nine days ago on Mother’s Day, but feels like lifetimes. Have you also experienced increasingly fuller days? I feel a lot of work is being done 24 hours a day in the seen and unseen realms, with increased dream travels, work, and remote visits, while in the day an upsurge of incredible alignments, connections, synchronicity, and instant manifestation are taking place alongside the day-to-day intentional work. All the while, veils are parting and portals opening, which the Forest Portal here is revealing more and more, and multiple timelines are becoming available to choose between or expand into simultaneously.
Three years ago I made a big life choice that started setting a new spiral in motion with the theme of merging my Earthly and Cosmic selves in a new way. And while choices are presented every day, I continue not to find any wrong choices, but merely choice that if committed to with full intention and heart, will be successful and fulfilling.
Some of this involves exploring and straddling several timelines in order to feel them out before decisions are made, as these days we don’t just jump in anymore without doing full energetic scans and walking in the potentials a bit. This is being in our multi-dimensionality.
You can see in these photos, a portal of multi-dimensional access revealing itself here.
The first photo taken from our back deck captures it to the right of the left tree trunk in the foreground and right of that you can see almost a straight line of glowing light that is actually the lake peeking through the trees and not the sunset. Although, it is in fact the sun’s rays hitting just right on the water. In person the lake and sun were golden, the mountains on the other side of the lake were darker and contrasting, making it very easy to discern. Here you get a sense that something is opening at that horizon level of the lake.
That photo was captured seven days ago and these, below, were captured two days ago of the sun halo above our Forest Portal, mirroring the portal in the forest itself….as above, so below? They both look like eyes or a nucleus of sorts.
In between these days some special and big markers for me have occurred, including Thursday 5/17’s being a shared birthday for three people in my life – my precious Cosmo (who would have been 12 in Earth years), my sweet Australian cousin Nella who turned 71 (you may recall her from my posts last year when I met her and my family in Australia for the first time where we also celebrated my Great Great Uncle’s 102nd birthday and her 70th – synchronously and exactly one year ago), and a dear friend Hillary who turned 35 (you may recall her from our Reiki and Horse Retreat we shared together three years ago) – a pivotal time right before huge shifts took place for me and my path and when the Faeries had reminded me that I can now be the “not of this world” me fully.
Yesterday was the twelve year anniversary of my French Grandmother’s passing (on my mom’s side), which signifies a matriarchal shift of energy and transformational shift of the Divine Feminine in our line of family. So a lot of pivotal energies for me framing this last week or so, coinciding with the Taurus New Moon that really showed in growth potential, as well as asked all of us to Earth ourselves some more in a new way.
The 17th also presented an instant manifestation Dave and I had just put out there involving our shared business, which involved deep explorations into where I wanted to go with things and exploring the infinite possibilities. We’ve had similar choices in the past that took some time to fully feel into, but in the end we have been very pleased with our decisions. So, this was another not to rush into and good we didn’t, as it has given us opportunity to review many possibilities and be open to even more.
So, besides my day-to-day things and working on my book when I can, I’ve mostly been focused on choices that have presented themselves in my life, dancing with the potentials, and exploring the different timelines available. The fun thing to discover is how much more mutable I have become, even beyond my native Pisces chameleon energy I’ve been known for. It is interesting to see how I entertain things I wouldn’t have thought of doing so in the past, as I truly open to my evolution with new perspectives and with the knowing that things don’t define me, but provide me opportunity to do or have more than one thing I may desire in unlimited ways.
I feel we are all straddling these interesting new potentials and that collectively this is an integral time of merging – that balance always ringing is as key.
In between all of this I’ve been remaining very balanced (unlike my past self) and grounding and Earthing quite a bit, as my garden became a focus amidst this pivotal decision time over the last week.
I’ve added a few new plants to my very lush Garden Tower, re-engineered the netting so that I no longer need the rabbit pen around it by using left over pavers we had (exactly the amount that created a circle around it) to replace the stones I found in the forest. The stones then were the exact amount I needed to finish the stone perimeter in the front yard and back yard that had been missing small segments from the previous owner – love how that all works out.
I’ve enjoyed watching all of my plants flourish, finding new discoveries continuing to grow, and planting Faery flowers and Manzanita in barrel pots we got to sit atop tree stump pedestals that had been cut down years ago.
I so adore these and feel that they’ve added just that little bit of Faery magick to everything and are gorgeous bloom sentinels lining the pathway and keeping watch over all of the creatures great and small here at the front and the back of the house. I LOVE being able to see two of them with Astrid from our Wonderland room.
That includes my bunny friends who also revealed themselves again. The mother and little baby both showed up on Cosmo’s birthday. Both connecting with Astrid and me for quite a while. In fact, the little one was not afraid at all and allowed me to open the sliding door, step outside and near him and then proceeded to listen to me talk to him for about 5 minutes before I decided to go back inside.
He seemed to have waited for me to do so. And then two days ago, on the day of the sun halo portal showing up, he returned again, and again allowing me to come outside and talk to him. A very special relationship is developing with the bunnies here and he feels connected to Cosmo. The mother is a lot more like Nestor and Astrid though.
But back to our land here – we don’t plan to do anything elaborate at this time, as we like to keep things more natural looking and with little upkeep, so these potted beauties do the trick. We liked them so much we have three more on the way for the back deck for Manzanita likely – native around here and merges well with all of the ones we already have on our property and in the forest.
At some point our labyrinth idea we have had for years may manifest, but like all things, it’s all about timing.
For now, house projects have dwindled down to only organizing half our garage left to do over the next couple of weeks with shelving on the way. And we’ll likely pressure wash and stain the house this summer to prep it for winter. That’s part of the day-to-day on top of the rental property business Dave and I run together that’s a side balance to my life.
So, while it may seem I’m not doing or putting out much these days, after having pulled away from and retired from some of my life’s work, I do in fact have a full life of different things going on while I am recreating and reimagining myself. This also creates a need to stay focused and make time for my book, as it is one of the other timelines I have merging that feels key.
Life is full and very Earthy on the one hand, which is perfect to keep my Cosmic self in check, merged, and harnessing alchemy, which requires both. It also allows for magick to be brought through into this realm, rather than keeping things and parts of ourselves separate. This also aids peaceful experiences to be the norm, rather than fighting with parts of ourselves like much of the world at large seems so good at.
Things that used to put my emotions and nervous system into a spin in my past, don’t get to me anymore because of this balance I’ve learned and because of no longer having undercurrents of feelings, sensitivities, and no boundaries controlling me. I now orchestrate my life and responses. A welcomed shift. 🙂
I’m still in process of exploring some timelines I may want to pursue, but have also put the keys in drawers on a few, for now, that I may want to revisit another time, as I follow my current heart stream. Astrid has been instrumental with that and I’ll share more about her shortly.
Processes always reveal things naturally, but there are also times we can cut to the chase and not even go down that path. As mentioned, there’s never a wrong, as everything will provide growth potential and some nice gifts to embrace, but if you aren’t capable of hearing your intuitive voice, or have someone to help guide you with that to know the timing on things and when to leave or start something, then perhaps your first instinct of the end result is the telling one that will help you not go down a path that might be more challenging for you to get out of than it might be for someone else in different circumstances.
Many times, my Pisces gift is a knowing of end results based on current momentum and while there may be much to gain along the way, not everyone has the capability based on their current patterns, to embrace all of it right now. While ultimately it doesn’t matter, since we each have our own paths, there’s something to be said for choosing wisely based on you now, and not you later. Just as you don’t try to change someone else. You either except them as they are now, or not, and have no attachment to if they will change at some point.
It’s the same with ourselves. We embrace who we are now and while we could change, there’s no attachment to if we will, and so we make decisions with as much as we know now and our patterns, without huge expectations placed on us to make these profound shifts. If we do, great, but we may not. Let it unfold naturally, as you’ll always get where ever you’re meant to go. So, if the sense is something isn’t going to end well, in the case of perhaps you’re not being able to make changes or understand your intuitive nudges, you may want to go with the decision not to do something and let the cards fall as they may. Unless, of course, you are an adventurer and enjoy the challenge of the moment to see if you can rise to the occasion.
I’ve seen this work itself out many times when people ask me for advice or have worked with me and they have chosen the path most aligned with their current momentum or that will bring about the results the way their souls know best, rather than entertain something else. And, there’s nothing wrong with that because there is no one way. In part this may be some of why I no longer resonate with teaching in the vein I have, as organic processes step more into Nature’s cycles. I love creativity as a form of natural activation of what’s already innately within.
That brings me to alignments – another natural cohesion that can take place – which I mentioned earlier because I’ve been experiencing an astounding amount of connections taking place that are true magick. This reflecting in many ways as new connections (in this life) with souls that have immediate depth, purpose, synchronicity beyond explanation, and producing creative results that are very mutually supportive. All of the details on these are too much to write, but I do want to extend gratitude for the blessings their are ringing in. The two most recent ones revolving around some rabbit creations that are very meaningful and timely for me – divinely inspired for sure.
This spirals us to the last update and most dear to me – Astrid.
That’s where the “inner ear resonance” part to the title of this post comes in. During this full week was also when Astrid started displaying some behaviors I took note of right away. Rabbits ask of us to be on our intuitive tip-toes all the time and ultra present. I noticed she was starting to shake her head and ears more excessively than normal. One might think it cute, but I had a sense there was something up. I kept watch for about 2-3 days noticing it was continuing and not simply just a fleeting irritation.
I then called to make an appointment Friday morning and the first available was yesterday. Interestingly, Astrid stopped the shaking head/ears behavior over the weekend, but I went with my instincts and took her anyway. We discovered that the left ear that had a bit more wax than normal in it last check up, had now created a plug, and the right ear that had no wax, now had some. Also, the inner canal was a bit red. The vet said that her hair follicles in her ear are for some reason not dispelling the wax as they normally do.
I definitely did the right thing in listening to my instincts, as an infection is starting and by being proactive, we can stop it from becoming something really serious. Ear infections for rabbits are not little things. Their ears are so sensitive, but infections can be horrible if not caught and treated in time, including could turn into head-tilt. But we won’t go there, as we’re on top of things and will continue with the current protocol – not fun to administer in her ears – and recheck in about 10 days.
Ears seem symbolically and literally significant right now – I have sensed my own shifting along with my eye sight. Ear canals are likened to birth canals and reflect the spiral and womb. In Egypt, ears aid the gods in hearing prayers so would be like hearing whispers from our higher self or the otherworldly parts of us. Ears provide the ability to be open to hearing new info and perspectives and knowing when to act upon what we receive. They are portals and antennae to receive thoughts, feelings, vibrations, and sound frequencies physically and telepathically. A channel to hear and know the truth within and without and as a result of that deeper inward hearing we can experience greater resonance and alignment on deeper levels of experience.
It’s interesting that I’ve seen Astrid communicating telepathically with so many of the creatures here in heightened collective activity – a variety of birds, squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits, and even spiders (too many photos capturing these moments to share). They all come outside her door. Even during this last week she started having symptoms, her telepathy has been on all-time high, demonstrating the inner ear, eye, mind, heart are the powers behind everything.
She’s going through her own shifts right now, mirroring my own, and during this week of choices, I can clearly see what Astrid wanted me to know – the answer that reflects my heart is the one to listen to and she’s ready to continue when I am from a deeper level of understanding. I love her so much and love how my rabbit companions have always and only been the ones to ever know how to guide me most effectively. Right now I plan to continue with our work together and help her to get back to her vibrant self with incredible cosmic ears. This is her this morning healing with Buddha.
As for us, we’re looking forward to summer and all the outdoor activities and events upcoming – lots of Tahoe Herbivores’ Meetups to come including our annual Music on the Beach events that are a huge hit, an upcoming Full Moon drumming circle, and hikes and fun! If you live in the area or are passing through during that time, check us out on Meetup.
I have two Reiki workshops this summer, (still some spaces to join both of these) and one co-taught magickal workshop in Fall with Laura (already 1/3 full) – the last of my teaching, as that journey comes full circle. You can register at the links provided.
Dave and I have a 10 day August trip – the only travel right now we have planned in California for two wedding events, family and friend time, and time in Yosemite – a first for me. We lucked out on all of it in getting something last minute that we wanted and being gifted an awesome accommodation too. Dave was invited to speak in Hawaii next year for his book, but we felt into that as not being aligned.
End of Summer visitors are starting as we have Labor Day weekend booked here with friends and then of course Laura coming out. I sense we may get a couple more visitors too, so that will be fun. I’m so looking forward to beach time and kayaking, as well as incredible hikes, but mostly right now I’m looking forward to my book’s completion.
That’s what’s been evolving here and what’s upcoming – in current sight at least. This is a little longer post to touch in and provide some updates as energetic gauges with all of you in your own worlds, as I haven’t posted for a while and don’t post regularly right now. I find that we always go through similar in our own relative ways, and sharing definitely chimes in those synchronous alignments.
Since I’ve been quiet, I figured I would do a little summary of main themes in my life – a way of also letting you know I’m still here working away on things to bring forth and share.
Seasons are shifting quickly, time is moving rapidly, veils are no longer boundaries, daylight is lingering longer, and expansion is happening in ways you aren’t even recognizing.
A short share about synchronicity and alignment, which happens more often when we are living in alignment with ourselves, being more in our essence, and stepping into a more gentle, freer space of letting go, supporting ourselves, trusting, and believing. It also happens when we live with greater presence and deeper reverence for life, making ourselves open and available to the small and big reflections that cross our paths every day.
“Synchronicity is an ever present reality for those who have eyes to see.” ~Carl Jung
It was an honor to meet the five Gaden Shartse Monks last evening while they’re on their Sacred Earth and Healing Arts of Tibet Tour. Three are from Tibet and two from India. They have made quite the trek to be here, including at least a 20-21 day journey by foot through the mountains to get to where they could even pick up their next mode of transportation to get here.
We attended the Green Tara Puja Blessing and Tea Offering held at The Loft here at the Lake, which was a beautiful and powerful meditation of deep guttural chanting and sound. I felt transported and got chills and visions running through me during the hour of chanting and was in deep peace and buzzing sweetly, thereafter.
The photos in the post are both pre and post ceremony. I also thought it synchronous I was wearing my green coat this evening, having completely not even thought about the connection of the Green Tara for the evening’s focus.
We arrived early to meet and greet with the lamas, which allowed time to talk with one of them about the Tibetan singing bowls.
I got to brush up on my skills and fell in love with one of the bowls I hope to bring home to add to my sound healing bowl family.
We also learned that while they are here through end of this week, that they are available for personal or house blessings, which immediately rang a deep inner bell off within me and clicked a resonance of alignment Dave recognized as well.
We knew a house blessing was in order and this morning it was confirmed for exactly when we were available and desired too, on this Saturday.
It feels too auspicious that they are traveling through our area just as our house renovations come to closure this week. We are listening to the synchronous messages and embracing the alignments.
And so, with great reverence and gratitude we will be welcoming the five (yes my favorite number jumping out again) monks to our home for a house blessing.
They’ve been here in the states nine months already, but you can check out their schedule to see if they’ll be in your area during their two years of travel through the U.S. at sacredartsoftibettour.org
This is a fun full circle story… I’ve been experiencing a LOT of full circle things recently, but this was interesting. This Ice Quartz (with major rainbows inside you can’t see here) pictured in the water, was one that I had back when living in Orange County, CA. I loved it so much, but it disappeared immediately after having it for like only a day or two. I was sad, but figured there was meaning and embraced letting it go.
Well, it showed up about 2+ years later.
The friends of ours that were renting our place are selling the washer and dryer they got from us because in Austin, TX (where they now have moved to) they only do electric dryers, not gas, and the machines didn’t fit in their new house anyway. My friend texted me a photo last week asking if this crystal was mine.
I immediately knew it was that crystal and was so surprised.
They found it in the rubber ring around the washer. I guess it must have been in a pocket of mine and stuck there when I washed clothes. It’s been there ever since.
And for whatever reason they thought to look and there it was before selling the machines off.
She sent it to me and it arrived just yesterday in time for the Full Moon.
This is it in Lake Tahoe’s crystalline waters receiving a recharge in the sun and liquid love. When it went in the water I noticed the time was exactly 4:44 and immediately after I turned around and behind me where I was this lovely goose feather was sitting.
Lots of angelic support and good vibes activating!
This crystal has gone through many cycles of cleansing, hehe!!!
And has been on quite the adventure, like me!
Now we are reunited at a beautiful and synchronous time of change and new creations unfolding.
We are having a lovely, although very whirlwindish vacation back in Southern California, which I’ll share more of the fun and magick of when I return home and have the time to get the photos I’ve been collecting of our memories here together. But for now, on this special day I just wanted to share something dear to my heart and some Christmas Eve wishes from my and Joy’s hearts to yours.
Today happens to not only be Christmas Eve, but is also the birthday of my sweet rabbit, Joy, who would have been 13 this year.
She reminds me of many things and has been so profoundly around the last week or so with messages and showing up for me and others I know in known or unknown ways.
Today is a reminder of celebrating the inner child and possibilities available to us when we vulnerably share our hearts and embody the integrity of our essence. Joy taught me this and so much more as my companion, guide, and teacher in life. She also taught me to listen within and to trust the messages in and all around me, and that balance was key to living a life of harmony and grace.
There have been some very auspicious events around Joy the last two days and one of which was a sweet message I received this morning that I just had to share because it touched my heart so and again pointed to Joy’s profound reach and messages she is wanting to impart. I won’t share the person who sent it, but here is the message that meant a lot to me:
“To dear Tania, Happy Christmas Eve to you and all your loved ones. You have been and are an inspiration in my life and will now be an inspiration to all others in my life because you have caused a massive ripple. Your way of living has helped bring back the hope in my life which lost me for a while. Yesterday I watched a film which I had thought about watching for a while, but didn’t until yesterday. I watched it because the name of the film was Joy. I followed the magic which the universe in all it’s magical ways was trying to show me. The film is about a lady who despite having everything thrown against her made her dream come true. So now I will follow my dream and be strong. So thank you to you and all your beautiful friends and loved ones with all of my heart. In this moment, I am happy and that is what counts. This moment. I hope to always see your magical pictures you post. Blessings to you. Peace to you, love and Prosperity to you.”
This was my response:
“I can’t express to you enough how reading this message this morning touched me so. Wow! What a beautiful share from you. It made me so happy to hear that you are feeling a sense of renewal and inspired zest for life. This is incredible and if I had any tiny bit of a part in that, I am grateful for that ability to have connected in a meaningful way that makes a difference. Also, you may not be aware, but today, Xmas eve, would have been my rabbit Joy’s birthday…so your message was truly profound, as the film you saw had her name and she’s been so strongly around and sending me messages…now this…It shows how she is also still working her magick as the powerful one that she is, touching others as she always has…and speaks to our connection.”
You may remember I had a dream about Joy the night before the Christmas celebration with my family and then I saw in large letters the lit up word “JOY” on the window across the street of my parent’s house, as a neighbor’s decorative display.
And something else I’ll share more about when I’m home that happened yesterday too. Plus, another friend sharing how much Joy, along with my other loves were around her and felt so much, Laura also sharing how she and my other two bunnies had a hand in some gifts for me, and gifts from two other friends yesterday that she and my bunny loves were a part of.
I hear you Joy and I hope that your message and presence will continue to shine a light of love into everyone’s hearts as you have mine for eternity.
May you all know and embody “joy” and wonder today and all the days of your life and may peace be your constant companion.
There’s been a literal shattering of the old into the new and a powerful swoosh of cosmic energies streaming in that are shaking things up in transmutational ways for sure! It’s not arbitrary that I had just recently reshared about the prominence of my Golden Selenite Flower – on 10/10 to be exact – and then on 10/23 when things lit up for us it had a spontaneous explosion. This signifying the end of an era, but also reflecting the unlimited creative potentials we’d opened up to and are flowing in, not to mention a deeper merging of human and star self in a multi-dimensional and formless way.
I mentioned in my post Cosmic Blossom & Cosmic Energies how this crystal had messaged me in wanting to be more intentionally active with my creative work and had come to sit alongside me on my desk daily to assist with that.
It’s no surprise that this crystal supports “creative manifesting from your heart,” “assists you to create your reality based on intention, trust, and joyful wisdom,” “helps you to become attuned to, and harmonized with, your soul purpose for this lifetime,” and “focuses on joy, manifestation, and creation/creative energies.”
That’s exactly what I’ve been harnessing and bringing forth more of in embodiment with all the new we’re creating. And the focus has been in cultivating very free-flowing, non-attachment, and full openness to exploring constantly evolving, creative potentials and their probabilities before choosing and jumping aboard the best alignment.
So when this crystal, which had become a favorite, burst with exuberance, it felt to reflect this actualization and a message of stepping into a more empowered place fueled by passion merged with harmonious surrender….and of course letting go in order to be more of who I am.
So rather than be sad, I celebrated this change I’d embraced.
Here is an article for more on ways to approach crystals having “accidents,” which is one of the most popular pieces I’ve shared:
Life here on Earth is taking a different turn and different ways of approaching things are being called for.
Everything is changing and rapidly. The peace will be found within your ability to embrace these rapid shifts.
As mentioned in my post Portals of Peace, I found it auspiciously prophetic that I was holding this crystal during my last sound channeling called Black Moon Rising.
And so peace pervades my experience all around, including the expansion of my crystal friend into her true multi-dimenionality….a reflection of my own greater experience of this and the cosmic support streaming in.
It is no coincidence that the day it took place was the day we were guided to the new home space we will be living in for the next 6 months through the rest of fall and winter, seeing us into the spring of our own “blossoming”.
It is no coincidence that it happened seamlessly on that day while we were driving by 5 different rental properties we were potentially interested in. We drive by to first feel it out if worth touring inside.
It just so happens that the one we ended up with didn’t have an address we could find at the time in the listing, so we found the number and called.
It just so happens the owner was there and when we asked for the address to drive by, he said to come on over and see it.
It just so happens it was the rental I had loved the most from the photos and description and really wanted to see.
It just so happens that when we walked in, it was everything we had hoped, and more.
It just so happens we both loved it.
It just so happens that it had only been on the market 11 days and we were the first to see it.
It just so happens that he accepted our two cats and rabbits even though he advertised no pets.
It just so happens it has things that will be nurturing of our time there and my finishing my book and projects, completely supported with inspiration.
It just so happens that the place is all furnished, as we wanted it, and all white with beautiful sea life paintings for our watery selves and the sun pours in like an illuminated star high up at 7450 elevation (I love being as high up as possible), feeling like you’re in the heavens with a heavenly panoramic view of the lake and forest, and 2 minutes from Heavenly Mountain Ski Resort.
It just so happens the place resembled in essence and appearance a dream I had and a room where I was receiving a cosmic upgrade.
And after viewing it, we knew.
And then we went on a hike where our first bald eagle sighting here at the lake took place, along with great blue heron showing up too and some symbols written in the dirt on the path that reiterated a profound confirmation.
So while I could get hung up on being sad about this crystal shattering, I am instead joyous of her transformation that equates to my own and know that her infiniteness is now fully actualized and even greater unlimited possibilities will be streaming in for the rest of the journey ahead.
Yesterday I posted the recipient of the “Share Your Story” Give Away and synchronously one of the stories that I received as entry came in from a dear friend of mine and co-collaborator, David Sloma.
This was synchronous, as I had already planned to share his book in an upcoming blog post when it was ready for release and so when his story came through it was another of those “perfect timing” nudges, which David will share more on in his story below.
I made mention while we were stationed on the Pacific Ocean in Malibu and Avila Beach that I was working on creating artwork for a book cover.
Well, that book cover was for David and his new novel, Earth Plan.
David Sloma is a writer and filmmaker.
He’s been writing since the age of seven and doesn’t show any signs of stopping that creative flow…what a roll he’s on with all of the novels, short stories, poetry, and screenplays he’s written.
He is definitely a creative force channeling that powerful energy of imagination.
And he’s such a kid at heart, which is one of the things I love about him so much.
David and I have been friends via Facebook for several years and he helped me back in 2011/2012 with my own book, “Spiritual Skin” when I needed assistance with formatting it for online publication.
Being completely technically deficient, I was so grateful for his help, as not only is he creative, but he possesses these skills as well.
And we decided on a mutual trade that now has come full circle.
David’s story below shares more on that, so rather than repeat it I’ll let him tell you how that unfolded.
But on my end I will share that the timing of his book and presenting the idea to me was so synchronous in my own life.
Not only was the story line one that resonated, but the specific things I’d be working with in terms of bringing about the artwork image were elements I have been receiving and integrating deeply in my own life in the last several years and some of which had come up through some specific dreams, channeling, and experiences.
Not to mention I’ve continuously been integrating my Human and Cosmic Self, as well as over the last months have been known to say that I feel like a volcano of energy and creative passion is ready to explode from inside of me….in walks a cover project that hits on all of these and so I got to symbolically translate that energy into an image.
This made for a clear channel and vision with the artwork at hand and along with my coming to closure with the services I was releasing in my life at the time, the joy and simplicity of life I was experiencing, and the energy of the ocean we were living on that was opening a floodgate of creative energy and intuition, I not only had the perfect space and support to create the cover and felt personally in alignment with myself, but also the perfect window of time aligned with his needs …and with the connection between David and I it was like we were on the same page and picked up seamlessly.
Earth Plan will be published to Amazon on June 2, 2016 as an ebook in Kindle Unlimited and is available for pre-order now. (The link will take you directly to the order page on Amazon)
A paperback will follow, including signed copies available. The ebook will be available in other online stores 3 months later.
Here’s David with his story and here’s the direct link on his website to learn more about this epic sci-fi fantasy novel through David’s own words via video.
The link on his site also includes how to pre-order the book before it’s official release on June 2, 2016:
Keep rockin’ David!!!
Trusting in the Perfect Time
I worked with Tania Marie on her book “Spiritual Skin: Sacred Tattoos:
More than Skin Deep” helping with some of the formatting as she was getting the book ready to publish. As someone who has published many of my own books, I had the skills to help out with her first book.
Instead of a monetary payment for my services, we agreed on an exchange of creative work. I asked if she’d make an illustration for one of my book covers and she agreed.
A couple of years went by and I had some books that needed covers, but none seemed right for a collaboration with her. So, I put the idea of her cover aside, wondering when, if ever, we’d get to it. I went on with my life and creative pursuits, writing and publishing several other books of mine in the meantime.
Every once in a while, I’d think of the cover we were going to work on but could not seem to find the right project for. I resigned myself to deal with it another time, if we could. There was no sense in pushing it if it just wasn’t the right time. I had to trust that it would all work out later on.
Then one day not long ago, I got an idea for a story that had a lot of themes that I thought Tania could really work with in a cover illustration, such as: spirituality, other beings, and other realms. The book seemed to really flow! I contacted Tania and opened up a dialogue again about her creating a book cover illustration for me.
I gave her a brief outline of the book I had written. It’s called “Earth Plan” about a group of benevolent spiritual beings called the Watchers who work to protect the Earth, and the lifeforms therein, from the evil forces of the Dark One; a demoralized, alien demi-god who wants to destroy all things good and pure in the universe.
The story begins in the time of Earth’s distant past when the dinosaurs still roamed and humans lived in caves. The Watchers find that the Dark One has sent his alien minions to Earth to manipulate the DNA of the early humans and lifeforms, causing them to fall from their original, pristine condition of spiritual connection and God-consciousness. But The Watchers are not going to let that happen without a fight that ranges over time, dimensions, and galaxies!
This time, with this book, everything clicked! Tania was inspired to work on the design! She received some creative ideas for the cover illustration and blocked out time to work on it while on her RV adventure, camped near the ocean in Malibu, California. Just knowing she was working on the cover in such a beautiful location filled me with excitement!
Soon, she had the cover art done and emailed it to me. As soon as I opened the email and looked at the image a smile began on my face that I don’t think has really left since! It turned out to be a great cover for the book, a truly one-of-a-kind piece of spiritual art!
The cover art Tania created for my book is really a joyous testament that things will unfold in their own perfect time if you give them a chance to do so.

So many synchronous alignments take place right before our eyes, but go unnoticed if we aren’t paying attention….if we aren’t present.
I was doing a quick little Tarot reading for myself outside yesterday and pulled a card from two of my decks.
From one I received “Spring Equinox”.
From the other I received “Into The Woods”.
Right off the bat, in the images, do you notice anything?
There is a rabbit in both of them.
In the first, she is holding the rabbit. In the second the rabbit is walking along with the Faery, hidden behind her gown.
There also happens to be a butterfly and owl present, which are both symbolism and guides that keep showing up for me as well.
Before I get to the message I received, you might be asking why I posted the first photo of my plants from the mini garden?
Well, look closer to what may seem not obvious and hidden.
Right after I pulled these cards and reflected on their message, I looked up and saw from the same viewpoint as is in that photo and immediately said, wow!
There happens to be a caterpillar cocooning (hanging from the pot in the background – hard to see in photo because the background stuff is out of focus, but look at the little green thing hanging from some gauzy white).
There also happens to be a hidden strawberry blossom in the foreground (under the dark leaf in the front). The only one.
When I pulled back the leaf I saw the beautiful red blossom with strawberry center that is emerging.
How perfect is all of that in combination with the message?
A direct reflection, confirmation, and manifestation.
All mirroring what is going on in my life currently.
All mirroring the reflections, messages, and support that is all around all of us, if we are present enough to “see”.
So what of the messages?
Well, everyone may interpret things in different ways, but what I received from the cards and all of the reflections was that I’ve been and will continue in a cycle of rebirthing right now…I got that this will continue literally through Spring Equinox in March.
I seem to be really following Nature’s cycles more than ever, which is why everything in my life aligns with the Moon phases, seasons, and Sun. And why I’m living more in a variety of Nature settings at this time, which are guiding the way.
So this will continue to be a time of clearing and simplifying, while redefining and recreating myself.
Rabbit, butterfly, and owl have much to share from the wisdom they embody and are helping me with doing the same.
Rabbit being my close familiar who shares my heart’s path. The image in “Spring Equinox” reminds me of me holding Cosmo.
And alongside that, “Into The Woods” shares that this is also a time of new experiences during much transition. (The card reminds me of the “Faery me” photo in Sequoia National Park I posted earlier today)
This is a time of moving between worlds and from one realm to another – great change that will take me farther beyond my usual realm of experience – if you can imagine that. 🙂
Time to take big leaps and go into unknown places that may feel uncomfortable and challenge me further, but all leading to greater strength and fulfillment. It’s a time of vulnerability and greater transparency with great rewards and blossoming of gifts from the courage I embrace.
There is no turning back from this point….only forging ahead, but with great care.
The image reveals a flowering forest lit with magickal star dust that assures me the journey is well worth any awkwardness of transition and is divinely guided and supported.
The card shares:
“And as she walks, something happens to her fears. In their place grow her fallen dreams; her shattered purpose begins to reshape itself. As she faces each guilt, each fear, in their place springs hope and faith, and she understands that her dreams can be recreated. She will walk on, and the world will cease to be fearful, but full of joyous potential.”
The rabbit in the card is her companion, much like in my life, and the rabbits assure me that I am headed in the right direction and are encouraging and supporting me to continue forward into what I’ve felt guided to do.
All of this would make greater sense, if you knew the work I’m being inspired to create…for the rabbits are my guiding force behind everything.
Amazing the alignments that reveal themselves when we really decide to show up in life.
While this may have been my personal message, it definitely could be one for the collective too, since the cycles of Nature and life are shared by us all.
Where do you feel called into greater depths of yourself?
Know that you, too, are supported when you commit to forging ahead, move forward without knowing the how’s, and follow what you know in your heart you must do.
This is a time of transition, but with great rewards if you take the steps and keep courageously believing.
This is an intro to the story I alluded to in my “Neverending Story” flashback post today, dedicated to Laura. She reminded me she had posted a bit about our magickal experience back in September of 2009, from which my today post: https://taniamarieartist.wordpress.com/2014/10/24/a-little-neverending-story-flashback/ was inspired. I didn’t have a blog back then, and forgotten she’d written this, so I share it with you now.
Here’s a fun little trip down memory lane with Laura and I, which but scratches the surface of what took place. The story went on quite a journey that continued more than was shared here and took us down a winding road after our second 5-hour sit-down, and even into dream time that night that we woke to.
The way Laura ends her post is perfect:
“Two fair maidens met a werewolf on Full Moon’s Eve” or “the shaman and the faeries walked together and down the road” or “a person’s word is bond.”
But I think I’ll just say, “we tiptoed into the Pomegranate Garden, tasted the fruit and smiled.”
Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything! Last week, my friend Tania Marie and I traveled to the Mendocino Coast for some much needed rest and relaxation. She had just finished the fourth in a series of five major paintings, and I still hadn’t officially celebrated the release of Schizandra and the Gates of Mu. I only had a few days for this getaway, so we picked somewhere close and dear to my heart. (Some of you may remember how much fun I had in Fort Bragg/Mendocino on my birthday last year.)
We truly experienced a magical, mind-blowing trip this time, much of which I am still processing. I’ll give you a bit of a recap here, though:
OK, first and foremost, Tania and I wanted to eat. We had originally planned to go to Santa Cruz, CA, but when we learned that their raw…
