I won’t be blogging on my birthday, which is this Monday 2/26, so I thought I’d share some thoughts in a post, today, on this nine year anniversary of Joy’s arrival into my life – one of the greatest birthday gifts to date! Although age is meaningless to the eternal spirit, it IS interesting to reflect on all of the judgments and ideas we have around age, which also deters people from humanly acknowledging it, as well as determines life protocol for many to try to reverse it or even speed it up. Although, I’ve never taken issue to stating my age, I have been guilty of all of these things in my past.
In fact, rather than be afraid of or feel protective of my age to the degree of feeling it is no one’s business, I was quite the opposite, where I was adamant to share my age because I could feel the judgments of others upon me and my insecurity around that to blast through their ideas about me. In part, this was my own projection, but being an intuitive, it was largely in response to knowing what people were thinking, and wanting to nip that in the bud immediately.
I recall having meaningful conversations with people in my past and knowing by my outside appearance and things they alluded to, like asking what school I was going to (when in fact I was way past high school and college age) and the way they looked at me in a protectively patronizing way, that they weren’t taking me seriously. Coming from a past of “feeling the need to prove myself” anyway, this of course was my perfect experience called up to move through that.
But, at the time, it just made me want to blurt out how old I was because I knew the connotations attached to age that obviously I was buying into, too, as a sensitive and boundary-less Pisces. So, rather than hide my age, I wore it on my sleeve. And perhaps that might run deeper than simply this, as I also knew the ancient aspects of spirit and to come back again on Earth, starting all over, might even feel demeaning.
Although I know it is a gift and meaningful choice, now, there would definitely have been unconscious anger or resentment over incarnating – an experience locked deep in our DNA, I feel, as a whole, for many reasons.
And so, there I was fighting back with announcing my age, to appease my feelings that not only in fact what I had to say was meaningful and important, but my incarnating here had purpose I was trying to remind myself with this declaration.
I’m not sure if I’m conveying this in the depth of potency it has, but in realizing and understanding this, it made a huge shift and got more parts of myself aligned and on board, rather than having an internal fight against myself, which only adds to the depletion of self love and creates more fragmenting and less empowerment.
The greatest battle and ongoing war, is truly the one within and I believe it stems from so much subconscious anger at our humanness.
And this made sense, as I always felt more inhuman and thus laid ahead a journey of merging and a return to natural harmony.
Then there was the young me wishing I was older and wanting to race through the years as fast as I could because I not only knew my younger years would be the hardest, but I also soulfully knew it wasn’t until later, in my mid-forties, that I would find my peace and really start “living.” A cruel form of intuitive vision when you know you STILL have to go through the years to get there. Yet, I wanted to escape, as much as I knew I couldn’t.
And still yet, there was the me who bought into these ideas of physically reversing age. Mind you, not in any fanatical way, but I was aware of ways in which one could “look” their best and all of those catch phrases even in the spiritual community that are about longevity, reversing the clock, ways one “should” look or how life should look if you are “ascending,” and what you “should” be able to do and accomplish if you are in fact turning back the sands of time.
I still marvel at this messaging and collective-buy-into, today, and although I understand aging is not a spiritual attribute, we are still on a three dimensional planet, we do still have individual journeys that are not measured by a certain amount of time we need to be here, and we are still judging what something looks like and associating it with living a life that’s “less than” if in fact it doesn’t fit into what collectively we see as “ideal” and “vibrant”. Just another form of self-abuse masked as spiritual enlightenment.
Are there things you can do to reverse physical appearance? Sure, but if in fact you are healthy, happy, and aligned in your expression of you, why then does that matter here on Earth?
If I want to have silver hair or wrinkles, why does that automatically mean I’m deficient? Or that there’s something wrong? I am still part human, and that part isn’t necessarily what I’ve chosen to walk in forever. Perhaps these indicate my true eternal quality? Why is there only one way to characterize this or see it?
There isn’t just one way, and I feel that the faster we open ourselves to multiple perspectives and possibilities, the faster we will free ourselves into a more grace-filled way of being and come into our multi-dimensionality.
Why do I bring this up?
Well, for one, I feel that vulnerability and transparency are powerful and key things to bring forth into our lives in greater frequency right now. Something I just shared yesterday on my Facebook feed with these reflections:
Everything points to going deeper into our hearts and connecting through them, with these as the guiding forces. The more we nurture these within, the more we encounter empowered embodiment, authentic experiences, connections, clarity, and alignment in our manifestations. And, the less we encounter triggers, hidden surprises, and forced change or reaction to what is revealed in the collective environment.
I feel that being vulnerable and transparent isn’t so much about allowing everything to bombard us as it pleases, but involves also a healthy balance of knowing and exercising our boundaries. This isn’t about hiding or repressing ourselves, however, but about knowing how to say “no” and not allowing certain frequencies to shift our own. Being openly expressive is not draining in this vein, but empowering and helps increase vitality. What is draining is when we fight our true expression or are having to deal with unwanted energies. Vulnerability and transparency is being willing to share the truth in our hearts and this helps others not to be afraid to do the same too. Fear around this is draining our energy, as we use so much of it to hide, worry, or create walls, which inhibit our gifts to shine through.
We can all shine, regardless of age, physical appearance, the list of accomplishments you have, or the things you own in your life.
The way I’ve discovered doing this is to live life out loud and to “create life as a work of art” – my motto.
I share the photo above, as it is the most recent photo of me (a week old) that reflects a much more peaceful, harmonious, grounded, embodied, softer, more secure, gently joyful, balanced, and creatively passionate me.
Vibrant bursts of color reflect my soul song frequency and inspire creativity to bubble through. Perhaps it’s the artist me or perhaps I’m simply inspired by Nature and how she exudes life force in every shade of beauty possible. Her blossoming myriad of expressions sing of love.
She is a woman of my heart and the only example I take to heart of how to live in the grace of being.
I love that now I have no emotional trigger or any tiny weirdness around my human expression and emanation of my spirit.
I will still always have resonance to otherworlds, but no longer need to prove that, nor anything else about my being here the way I choose to show up, as once my younger Earthly self felt she needed to do.
Merging embrace of my multi-dimensional self allows me the ability to enjoy each different aspect for what ever they are and however I am choosing to express them, without attachment.
They are ALL me and as the artist me, and using the power of creative love through me, I know their intrinsic beauty and value in the spiral of consciousness.
I now walk this reality as alive as ever, because it is my canvas to create in the reflection of my essence and my playground for exploration and total freedom of how I want to share that in any given moment.
Although chronological age is not important, the numerology factor is still interesting and revealing to explore.
45 is a combination of the energy of 4, 5 and their combined total of 9.
4 builds solidity and stability, foundations for self and others, draws forth passion and drive together for achieving success (whatever that means to you), and 5 adds personal freedom, adventure, creativity, courage to explore unknowns, letting imagination go free, versatility, major life shifts through lessons learned, while 9 brings things full circle, adds patience, intuition, soul mission, inner strength, sense of personal responsibility, humanitarianism, global focus, living and leading by example, and spiritual enlightenment.
These feel to be the energies I’m integrating at this time of my life and the foundations of where I am and where I’m headed.
I read that 45, numerologically, has a focus on putting your efforts and energy towards the things in your life that enhance and fully embody who you truly are – from the smallest of things to the largest of things – what we surround ourselves with, what we wear even, the things we focus on and are working on bringing into the world, and our lifestyle choices and overall life in general. It’s also about really putting things into full-embodied action so results manifest, keeping focused, and integrating a more pragmatic way to be a guiding force.
I’m also going to be igniting a 12/3 year come my birthday and this speaks to the creative rebirth taking place for me, an inner calling surfaced, release from all karmic ties, and everything coming together in my life story as I reach a significant stage on my journey.
So, while I may have been wanting to fast forward things in my younger years, I can understand why that visionary part of me was looking forward to now, as this truly is the most full-circle time of my time here on Earth – this life and aspect of my multi-dimensional self – and the most peace-filled.
There is peace no matter what today or tomorrow brings, as there is peace right here and now in my heart.
My new thing in recent years has been to gift myself birthday gifts to not only celebrate the new energy with supportive things that light up my heart, but to celebrate all that I’ve gone through to be here.
This year seemed to start a few months early, as truly wonderful birthday gifts were received from friends, loved ones, and family far before now, and some incredible surprises along the way that truly touched my heart.
So many of them were rabbit-focused and went along with the theme of my Wonderland office, with Alice in Wonderland fun.
My favorite gifts-to-self include the colorful, handmade shawl you see me wearing in the photo, two necklaces (including an incredibly magickal rabbit and a powerful “origins” and DNA activator), another gorgeous Faery book (I gifted myself one last year too), a custom made pen (for the writer me), a custom made wand (for the ancient me), and a “crown” chakra headpiece I’ve had intention of for years, but took until now to draw in the perfect one. Seems appropriate.
I don’t have any particular plans this year on my birthday, so we’ll see what intuitively and organically shows up, but we will be embarking on a super fun adventure March 7th – 17th, which feels to be my birthday journey of origins and more.
We’ll be heading to Arizona, first spending 3 days with Dave’s family in Tucson and then heading up to the Grand Canyon to meet up with our sweet friends you’ve heard me mention in past Summer posts – KC, aka Bean, and Clint, aka Happy. My Faery and Elf friends who returned my two giant quartz to their momma after my foot fracture and who took me on a Cirrus G6 private flight over Lake Tahoe.
From there, we head into the GC for an epic trekking and camping adventure, to introduce the energy and magick of this realm to us. Well, more me, because Dave has been inside of the GC before, but I haven’t. I’ve only explored the rim. Nor have I ever done this kind of trek, as I only camped a tiny bit when I was a little girl. Our adventures have been limited, but oh-so not limiting, to the Magick Bus RV living.
But come March, Bean and Happy (who will be working in the GC starting a week after our adventure, are GC experts, and love her inside and out) will be sharing her with us through their eyes, as we venture into her mysteries for several days. This will be an intro only, as we couldn’t do a super long trek this go-around, so more will definitely have to come once we sink our feet into the Earth here.
The reason I said this will be a journey of origins and more has to do with the ancient Earth here and the energy, which I know will be activating for me and synchronizes with my origins theme, because apparently there are hidden Egyptian temples that predate Egypt by 7000 years tucked safely away in the canyon walls for only certain eyes to see (this info coming to me all at once from several sources). Regardless of actually seeing them, the energy will be there and this connects more dots with why I felt so compelled to go on this trip, why it fell into place so seamlessly (including super challenging permits they were able to get for us for it), and ties into that Africa energy (which I’ve had more interesting dots light up with other connections too, since those posts).
A “Grand” birthday/new year/kick off indeed!
However, the greatest gift is this storybook year for me, and that my book’s completion and manifestation is close at hand and along with writing it, I’m writing a new reality into being from my heart.
I’m so grateful for every chapter of this story of life and that you have all been willing to colorfully show up and play in it with me, through the fun and challenge, and through the mystery and adventure of it all.
As I slowly peek my head out from my self-induced cocoon, I felt guided to connect in a more personal way.
I have been on a three-month sabbatical, as many of you know, so this is my first emergence online and it will be brief, as a quick way to just touch in.
I’m actually in transit, as I share this, making our way back to Newport Beach, California from our time away in the enchanted Sequoia Giant Forest.
Again, this is just a brief touch-in, as I will be sharing more likely tomorrow about my time away and what has been evolving.
Much to share, as I’m sure all of you have also gone through a lot in these last few months.
Until then, I hope you enjoy this little video from yesterday.
I’m not a techy person in any way and prefer things natural, so this is just what flowed in the moment I was guided to share in this way. My camera shut off mid-way, but I managed to merge the two videos without too much weirdness in between. 😉
Anyway, hello to you all and warm hugs from the snowy forest!
I thought about how I could likely write a really long post as this last one before I head offline on my 3 month sabbatical, but am guided to make this brief and instead share a simple message to leave with you in the form of the video below that speaks a message of the heart.
While it seems like long that I’ll be gone, with the way time moves like a flash, before you know it I’ll be back again, although much will have transpired not only for myself, but I know for each of you as well.
When I return I’ll share about my process and experiences during these months away, and will look forward to catching up on yours.
A few simple reminders as I leave, along with clarity on this time away, as I’ve received a lot of messages where it seems people haven’t understood what this time means for me or some of the services I offer.
This three month personal sabbatical is about just that….it is for personal things, of which involve creative projects, personal nurturing and listening within, and now also a physical transition from house to RV living, which just so happened to coincide with this time off, but was not planned as such.
I am NOT embarking yet on the grand RV adventure, although perhaps might do small jaunts here and there for several days or a week at a time, but I’ll still be stationed in Orange County at a beach-side RV park, until further pieces unfold. It’s all a process. In the meantime, I’m so looking forward to simplified living and following my heart.
I won’t be online, so basically off-grid to everyone, and unable to answer messages, emails, and questions. I am basically creating a Tania bubble without distractions or energetic pulls.
In terms of services, they will all (at least the ones I will continue to feel called to offer) be available when I return beginning December 1st. I will be offline September 1st – November 30th.
There will be new offerings upcoming in the time I return that will continue to evolve and be presented at the times I feel guided to offer them. I’ve gotten hits on how things are evolving and so I’ll be sharing that little by little when I return. I may also be shifting gears with focuses, as I am following the energy of the collective’s needs, coupled with my own energetic shifts, so greater emphasis will be placed on specific offerings, as well as new ones that have shown up, as mentioned.
In terms of sacred tattoo designs. I’ve received an influx of messages in the last few weeks, right before heading off. So to clarify those questions being asked, please visit this link, below, for more important information on details about working with me on co-creating a design when I return. It addresses the waiting list that is now at Januray 2016, upcoming rate changes, and how you can still schedule a design with me while I’m away:
I’ve already been asked to teach a Reiki 3 Master Teacher workshop in December when I return and a Crystal Magick workshop, so I’ll keep you posted at that time on those and their dates here locally from a new location.
I’ve also been asked to offer other things and been needing to support people and the energy showing up in myself in different ways. So I’ll put that into play and/or bring them to you more upon return.
I may also know then, more about the evolving plan for the adventure. Right now it’s a day-by-day process that calls for trust, patience, and listening for the alignments.
When I do return, I’ll be sharing and working from my new abode on the RV. The new space will create its own shifts with things.
While I’ll miss connecting with you, honestly, I am very excited to have this time to myself, as it is much needed and being integrally guided.
That experience of feeling comfort with physically removing myself and being on my own more or altogether, comes from having a sense of peace within myself, and also knowing and experiencing the unity and love no matter where I am and if I’m alone.
I know that distance never separates us, regardless, as the connection is always experienced in the heart and soul no matter where one is on Earth or beyond. A good reason for, and exercise in, practicing telepathy! 😉
Telepathy is something I use constantly with my dear friends, clients, animal companions, and souls off-Earth, and especially my Faery sis, Laura. She and I are always going through mirroring things (whether exactly or in relative ways), or experiences that balance out one another at different spectrums that unite, despite our rarely ever connecting in person or even by voice on the phone. You can likely keep up with energetic things that may be evolving with me during these three months, by following along her journey at her blog. 😉
I’ll leave you with this video message, shared with me today by my Cosmic brother, Amaru, whom I’ve journeyed with in Peru and beyond. A perfect, simple, and beautiful expression of what I feel in my heart.
Here’s to it really being a good day…EVERY DAY that you are alive in your body on Earth.
In love and creative magick always.
See you soon.
It was a long time coming for Laura and I to reconnect in the Faery flesh – what seemed like nearly 6 years – but last week saw the end to that physical separation drought, as we came together in Goshen, IN.
We share that rare kind of friendship that has no “needyness” and yet we are also so close that we never feel the distance despite hardly ever having spent much in-person time together over the years.
We are in constant connection telepathically, via text and email, and the very very random phone time, however, our connection just increases. For us both, we cherish the kind of friendships that honor our independent natures and yet support the unique oddities we each have and desire from our relationships.
That said, it was so, so nice to be in the flesh together again – the longest we’ve spent actually in person ever. Not to mention, it was definitely potent, tons of giggly fun, refreshingly healing, and deeply activating.
Originally, I had intended to share a very full account of our time together, which would have included quite the photo journal. However, Divine flow had something else in store for embrace, which to me mirrors much of the themes we reflected upon, as well as spoke to keeping some of that magick and our special times close to heart and within our own experience.
Both Laura and I are quite open with our lives in the public, and yet we both commented on how amazingly nourishing it was to be with each other solely and completely cut off from the outside world and work, to create “us” time for once, without any agenda whatsoever.
We both honor and respect one another, understanding the flow of giving and receiving and never put each other to work or take unconscious or conscious advantage of one another’s gifts. So we are actually able to have true fun and play time together, and be mutually supportive without ever feeling drained – only recharged and renewed.
And that’s a rare thing to experience for us!
Although we are pretty public with a lot of things, we do in fact keep portions of our lives sacredly personal, and so when more than half of my photos mysteriously disappeared, I felt it was a message to keep that sacredness in tact and to be able to have some small portion of our lives kept just to us.
This also mirrors what is individually happening in my own life, but I will save that for a soon-to-come, separate post, as I’d like to dedicate this one to the cherished soulship Laura and I share, and to her Birthday energy we were celebrating alongside our Faery reunion.
That said, I will share some of the highlights and a general overview, as we are both always aware of how our individual experiences are collectively connected and know that there are things that are actually supportive in a service way to share, while the rest is energetically shared, despite not literally talking about it.
My journey to Laura began in flawless and synchronous flow, without any retrograde fun trying to create mischief. We’ve both learned to embrace and flow with the energies so we are relatively unaffected by them, or easily shift to match them so that challenges become more like launching boards to kick major, life-affirming shifts into play.
Perhaps the magickal flow was aided by a little bit of pixie dust sparkle, raw triple quartz and moss ring, life-enhancing spells, sacred tattoos, and a lot of peace, as I just so also happened to be wearing a butterfly peace shirt that says “love this life” on the front with a long beautiful expression of what that means on the back, a crowned rabbit and runes necklaces, a “peace starts with hoodie”, and sparkle shoes. I’m all about creating your own magick!
So my travels were smooth with driver arriving early to get me to the airport, arriving to Los Angeles (LAX) airport in 30 minutes (usually takes 45 without traffic and who knows how many hours with traffic), my plane arriving 20 minutes early to my destination of Chicago, immediately finding my bus stop with ease, being asked if I was a student at Notre Dame (nice little compliment for a 42 year-old), and Laura’s partner, David, surprisingly getting off work early so that with a small delay on the freeway with traffic, our timing aligned perfectly when I arrived at my stop for them to pick me up with only 5 minutes of wait time that I used to make a phone call to my mom and dad to say I arrived safely. 🙂
Indeed this set the tone of synchronous alignment and flow for the week.
I did at first feel like Dorothy in Kansas, although I was Tania in Indiana…it felt surreal. I couldn’t quite place where I was energetically, and the odd silence without anyone at the terminal of the airport I was dropped off at, nor around outside, had me feeling like I’d stepped into Stephen King’s “The Tommyknockers” for a moment, feeling like I was in another dimension about to be gobbled up, where time was suspended and/or fleeting.
For a moment on the bus I had also felt like I was in the Twilight Zone, as I’d dozed off for a second, which felt like forever with my getting up at 3 am that morning, waking to looking behind me and not seeing anyone on the bus after we kept spiraling around these connecting ramps to other highways, one after another. Apparently everyone had sunken into their seats asleep, but it sure did give me a quick jolt into another reality for a second.
And another reality was exactly what we created together last week, as we spent most of our time at the Faery Cottage Laura and David live in, chatting away like Faeries on a flower-high.
I was so delighted to find the tapestry spread I had gifted Laura years back, covering the bed I’d be Faery dreaming away in for the week. This tapestry is very special to us, as it embodies the two of us so perfectly, entwined in winged magick. The left Faery is black-haired and tattooed, while the right Faery is red-haired and tattoo-free. Seem like anyone you might know?
It was so much fun to be able to catch up, share, giggle, joke, talk about some of our favorite things like food, gardens, rabbits, and magick, chuckle at the overlapping synchronicities in our lives that are more than uncanny, and adventure into the new together, which all created a potent, percolating energy that naturally was processing and activating simply by our engaging our energies together.
We got to share the rare time of late mornings and even afternoons in our jammies, late nights up talking away, tons of super yummy and nourishing raw vegan and vegan food daily (I was so spoiled by both Laura and David preparing everything and by the garden fresh additions to each meal and smoothie just newly harvested by Laura each day), and Faery tea time with delish Reishi tea.
I also got to meet Laura’s David (we both have David/Dave partners in our lives who each incidentally used to go by the other’s version of their name) for the first time, which was so lovely. We just picked up as if we’d known each other for years (which in fact we do 😉 ) and we were all giddy to learn just how much overlap of shared, synchronous things we all four have. I was especially grateful and happy that I now have a brother whom I love dearly!
I was also lucky enough to receive a tour of Goshen highlights from their friend Jerry who had access to show Laura and I all of the cool new artsy things going on in town including an amazing old theater renovation, a live music venue and old vinyl store, Goshen Art House, a new Brewery (not that I drink, but one of the ways Goshen is cultivating into more of a destination spot that already is considered one of the top 10 places for music bands loving to perform at), and all the cutting-edge things being created to draw in the artsy and eclectic crowds.
I also got to visit the indoor Farmer’s Market where we picked up a few things including some gifts for me to bring back to Dave – Indiana Maple syrup (courtesy of Laura for Dave) and a very interesting Espresso Pumpkin Ketchup I got him. There’s a funny story behind that one, but needless to say I took a chance at getting it and I have to say, he WAS right. It is actually really good!
There was a couple of visits to the local Co-Op – Maple City Market – which has a ton of great stuff. I was pleasantly surprised at the array of vegan items, which of course we enjoyed several of.
More than once we shared some Hail Merry Miracle Tarts, which are these amazing raw vegan mini pies in an assortment of flavors. We have them here too, but I hadn’t tried all of them. However, between the ones we had while I visited, and the ones I bought when I got back home because I was still wanting to drag out our amazing time together with a little pie nostalgia, I have now tasted them all. LOL!!
I also got to experience Hemp Tofu for the first time, which is super yum! I love this because I’m allergic to soy, and I found the texture really “meaty”. I don’t know if I just hadn’t seen them at our market here, but of course you know when I was picking up Hail Merry’s I also got all three of the different flavored hemp tofu’s too when I got back! Hehe.
And, I suggested to try my favorite Mint Chip coconut vegan ice cream, which I’m happy to say was a hit for all of us. So much so we devoured two containers over the course of two different evenings, which was mmm mmm good.
Needless to say, I was well-fed and had a very happy tummy that didn’t shy at seconds of everything there was the opportunity to have seconds on. 🙂 I was on vacation afterall! And when you’re moving energy like Laura and I do, you don’t pack on anything. But that also happens when you’re eating healthy food and not fussing over worries like that. We both dropped some energetic weight despite all the goodness going in.
And that definitely continued as the theme throughout our week together, as we engaged in increasingly potent talks about everything under the sun from Elves to ET’s, that built up to doing extended 9-card Sacred Spiral Tarot readings for one another with a unique Sacred Body Wisdom deck, a two-round Reiki Healing Attunement session for the four of us (us and our guys), and ending with a wowzers, magickal ceremony complete with Faery altar activated with a potent crystal wand.
We knew we were moving the energy, not just because we felt it, but immediate things happened around us and with our loved ones, things manifested for each of us despite our disconnect from the outside world momentarily, magickal things appeared when we stepped outside, we had interesting dreams, and I even activated my kundalini energy in my tailbone (temporarily painful before freeing release), while we both got head/third eye aches.
All dissipating overnight and opening into a new lightness.
We even got a visit from a lovely friend of theirs and her newborn, which was truly a delight. We both felt like the two Faery Godmothers of the Faery Cottage sitting side by side on the couch, as we energetically supported this lovely new Faery into the world and her very sweet mother.
And I DID get a little Gardening 101 from Laura! Yay!
We spent one afternoon planting new goodies, overseen by a Robin, black Squirrel, giant Bumble Bee, and a tiny baby Bunny.
I did the watering (being a water Faery), while Laura did the planting (being a triple Earth Faery), while we talked and giggled in between Laura’s master-minding the garden plan all in that fantastic brain of hers that envisions realities yet seen, but that ARE. 😉
And speaking of bunnies, I had so hoped to see a bunny in the garden while visiting Laura, as she had mentioned them before. Not only was I gifted the little one on our gardening day, but later in the week we drove up to find a momma rabbit nursing her 8 – 9 little babies!
THAT was incredibly potent in symbolism and quite the magickal gift. I had never seen a mother rabbit and her babies in the wild, let alone nursing them! I had had such a sweet connection talking with the baby bunny the other day and now this just topped it off.
Later Laura went back outside to gather some fresh greens for our meal and to water and she said the little one came running to her again, but then ran off, she said, when it realized she wasn’t me. LOL!
Yes, people do mix up our energies indeed. When we’re together people comment on our being sisters, which did happen at the Farmer’s Market by one of the vendors Laura knew. It’s always uncanny how we show up out of our rooms wearing the same colors or nearly the same kind of things without telling one another.
Another thing we share is our love for Nature and our need to be out immersed with her energy, as we both know how recharging it is for us.
It was a spectacular birthday celebration indeed that got kicked off in bindi-style, as I always bring some fun bindis for us to wear, and included a picnic lunch made in Laura’s Sun and Wonder Ovens (both of which I also got the 101 on and am now ordering my Sun Oven to add to the Wonder Oven Laura sent me as a gift), tons of amazing gardens fit for a Faery indeed, a BEAUTIFUL flute birthday serenade by someone who just so happened to be playing by the water (I actually got it on audio/video that Divinely is 3:33 in length from the moment we got to him to when he stopped playing!), finds we gifted each other including some cherry artisan mustard I finally found to bring back to Dave too (as he loves his unique mustards), a walk on the beach at the Sand Dunes of Lake Michigan, a birthday Hail Merry threefold birthday pie assortment shared on the beach of Persian Lime, Chocolate Mint, and Chocolate Raw Almond Butter, and an amazingly yummy dinner at Sunny’s Korean Restaurant in Mishawaka – mmmmmm!
I intend to purchase her kimchee seasoning online (I actually got side-tracked looking them up to order while writing this) because it is delicious, healthy – (all-natural, no preservatives or MSG, vegan, gluten-free and made with love), and makes it “easy and simple for you to make fast, fresh, kimchee at home and add the flavor of kimchee to any of your favorite dishes!”
It was hard to part ways, and to be sure there were big hugs and love exchanges indeed.
While there is such a contrast of energies in little Goshen, it was the very thing that makes for irony, intrigue, and mischievous magick – the kind that creates mega ripple shifts and activates instantly potent action into manifestation.
We know that we’ll be seeing each other again very soon, and there are some extremely interesting things awaiting us individually, and together, that are in the unfolding.
A big heartfelt thank you to my sister Laura and brother David for such a beautiful week. I can’t remember having so much fun, goodness, and love poured over me with a Faery cherry on top!

Walking the Path of the Great Central Sun ~ March Equinox Sacred Journey to Peru with Shaman Amaru & Reiki Master Teacher Tania Marie
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.
I 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.
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.
March 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
Let me first introduce you to Amaru Gustavo Cornejo Cornejo our Leader, mystical guide, and the Founder of Light of the Andes who has so beautifully put together the itinerary for our Sacred and Cosmic Journey, with a bio introduction:
“Amaru” Gustavo Cornejo Cornejo is the Director and Founder of “Light of the Andes” ~ Cosmic Journeys dedicated to guiding groups of seekers and aspirants to the Light Warriors, who travel to Peru from all countries to accomplish the Great Work and to reach enlightenment of the Great Being that is within every Human Being’s potential. Amaru guides the reconnection of geo-cosmic Power Centers (Chakras ) of South America and throughout the Andean world, integrating Ancestral Shamanic Path titles and professional knowledge in tourism , mining and metallurgy , Cosmo-biology , Chinese Martial Arts (therapeutic and evolutionary Ancient system of Tao Arts) and the various initiations received from traveling several Ancient trails in the Spirit of the Andes and the East. He imparts the investigations and discoveries he’s made from walking the Path of the Warrior of Light in communion with the Universal Source. Amaru is a Master of ancestral therapeutic system of the Cosmic Light of Andean origin – Lemurian called YLLA – HANTATY , as well as a Master of the ancient Reiki System, Instructor of Chinese Martial Arts dedicated to “the Healing Tao System” and above all things, facilitator of the Holisitic Shamanic Path in the Andes. Since a child, Amaru has been dedicated to mystical exploration, which has allowed him to discover a wealth of archaeological and anthropological remains of the Ancient cultures of the Wizarding World Andino, thus has discovered and recognized some of the trails of the Ancient Wisdom Andina, which is still alive and available to those seeking to open heart and mind without dogma or preconceptions. He has also been in contact with some of the Masters of various paths of Ancient wisdom of our humanity and is a mystical writer whose works are based on his experiences, research, and accomplishments – his first book titled “Huaynaputina” (Young Waterboy ). In this work we find the answers Amaru explored in effort to answer questions that tourists and scholars from Peru and around the world are constantly asking. Amaru seeks to share with us these Ancient cultural values of our humanity, which he says is a legacy that Source grants us, of civilizations ignored and unimagined by us today.

Optional Extension: MARKAHUASI: The Stone Forest – Altar of the Cosmic Soul
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.
Day 13 – 3/23/15: After our night’s rest in Lima, we depart by bus at 6:30 a.m. from our hotel Miraflores in the district of Lima city to the high mountains of the eastern region of Lima to San Pedro de Casta. 10:00 a.m. we take a rest stop and pick up our picnic lunches while we appreciate the energetic landscapes of this part of Lima.

By 5:30 p.m. we regroup on the Plateau and make camp. 7:00 p.m. our guide shares ancient knowledge of the Andes in connection with our entire planet. We then share a Sacred Fire Ceremony with thanks to the presence of fire spirits who will work with us for more than two hours of fire ceremony while the Stars and Light of the Cosmos and Earth hear our songs and mantras in offering and connection for our journey in the following days.
Day 14 – 3/24/15: 7:00 a.m. or upon waking, we enjoy a warm breakfast and hot tea or coffee to encounter the colder temperatures on the Plateau. 8:00 a.m. we start the hike up the Plateau to experience and explore the mystical rock formations. 12:00 p.m. we enjoy a picnic lunch, rest, and then descend the Plateau. 3:00 p.m. we make our way back to the town of San Pedro de Casta and enjoy a delicious farewell meal then catch our transfer back to Lima. 8:00 p.m. we arrive in Lima after our two full days on the Plateau of Markahuasi.

This is a beautiful share from Epona Rise’s Founder and your host/facilitator of July’s Retreat, Hillary Schneider, on what happens in the space of the horse:
“Long ago a seed was planted in my heart through the relationship and connection with horses that started when I was a little girl…Ever since I have been around horses I have known that there was something special about them. When I am around them I feel like I have come home, grounded in myself and deeply connected to who I really am at the core. That is what they do for people. They create space for us to be reminded of who we are and provide us with an access to that deep wisdom that exists inside of us. There is nothing that compares to the gentle encouragement to bear witness to our truths when we are with them – a mirror of purity they help us to see where we are blind, gain clarity on where we are meant to be, and give us the confidence to stand in who we are.”
You can join, Hillary, the Horses, and myself July 2015 for an unforgettable experience of “Living with Vibrational Integrity“.
All details and links to register can be found here: tinyurl.com/eponarise
Including how you can save $100 through 11/11, and take advantage of amazing payment plans starting as little as $84/month if you register this month of September.
Since 2015 is the last year to join a Reiki retreat, let alone a sacred journey I’ll be hosting, we’re making it easy for anyone to be a part of these experiences.
I hope you enjoy these photos from some of the time people have spent with the horses at Epona Rise, reflecting the kinds of experiences you can look forward to on this sacred retreat, as well as the magick that these amazing beings exude.
This article came past me again today when someone messaged about it, and it felt like a nudge to share it once more. It’s an article I wrote as a contributing author for http://wild-woman.com/. The title of this article happens to be one of my personal mottos, and the theme heading of my blog. Perhaps it might speak to you in some way.
My life wasn’t always an expression of my heart. Well, not my truest and wildest heart, but rather a tamed one that felt similar to what it might be like receiving a heart transplant – part of me I had accepted, but not naturally of me.
While I did incarnate, as we all do, with my full gifts intact and flowing, it wasn’t long before the naturally expressive, unhindered, and unencumbered me took a back seat in the dark recesses of my human vehicle.
The beautiful innocence we all bask in the glow of from onset tends to diminish, as we soon begin to forget who we are, under the heaviness of all that is not us. These unwelcome, but unquestioned strangers squeeze that little child into the tiniest, deepest part of us we can manage hiding her in, which will prove a courageous journey to recover her from later.
This isn’t always the experience, nor does it have to be. However, the journey of my heart was one that I had chosen to walk in all colorful feeling extremes, in order to come to know my thread of expression within the collective tapestry, and to have a foundation of true understanding and breadth of compassion from which to connect from.
The journey wound through various paths of trials and explorations, as I experimented to find the right balance of elements that when kindled, would ignite the resonant recipe of me.
It hasn’t always been an easy journey, but it has been an invaluable and rich journey – one I wouldn’t change even if you told me I could. I can’t imagine my life any other way and now have only gratitude for every courageous soul that was willing to show up exactly as they did to assist me with my personal evolution.
I believe we contract soul agreements and that the people we have had the most challenge with, are some of the souls who love us enough to know that they may be temporarily resented and despised, as we both move through our journeys.
We have the opportunity in every moment to rigidly close ourselves off like a guarded steel trap, or to gently open ourselves up like wings of a bird taking to flight.
“Right now, and in every now-moment, you are either closing or opening. You are either stressfully waiting for something – more money, security, affection – or you are living from your deep heart, opening as the entire moment, and giving what you most deeply desire to give, without waiting.” ~David Deida
Through the obstacle course of my life I set up to experience, I shared in the wound of fragmentation that we each go through on the journey to unifying the powers of seeing, knowing, feeling, and being. There is a wounded healer in all of us that desires to quench the thirst of self-purification through release of conformity and mediocrity that has held our soul’s true power and magick down.
At every turn we can choose differently. Choose to shift perspective. Choose to feel and believe differently. Choose to take different actions. Choose to be more present. Choose to respond with conscious awareness, unconditional love, and compassion. For we see in others, the shared wounds we both desire freedom from.
It is our sovereign free will that we can exercise to create anew in each now moment. And from this presence of heart, we can activate the powerful vulnerability of our personal integrity to be the voice of change needed, in response to all experiences.
There came a time when I was ready to see, both literally and figuratively. And to be willing to look within is where the journey to wholeness begins.
I actively do my best to practice and remind myself to stand in that wholeness of heart and soul, as I believe it is the bridge that provides the potential for others to do the same. And I gently keep encouraging myself when I move through moments of learning and re-learning, realizing that the journey is more valuable than any idealized destination.
After all, we are here to experience all that life as a human has to offer. We didn’t have a clause going in saying, “Only IF it is exactly like this, will I incarnate.” We chose because of the adventure and the possibilities available. We knew it would come with the ups and downs. And we were celebrated in our courage to come anyway.
As a natural artist of life, I have always danced with healing arts and creative expression as either a childhood tool to escape the pains of the past, or a means to which, as an adult, I could recreate the world I once escaped to, as my now reality. It wasn’t until much later in life, however, that I embraced the gifts that showed up from early on – the arts, imagination, intuition, sensitivity, and connectivity – as the channel for self-expressive service to others.
Yet, everything to me has always been rich in symbolism, which I felt had the power to shift experiences through the potent and fertile doorways they created.
So I developed a knack for the alchemy of transmutation through the vehicle of integrated self-expression from the heart. And I am living more aligned with that true and wild heart of mine and enjoying life more now than ever because of, not in spite of, everything that has been part of my experience.
I invite and welcome others into the dance with self and to align with the way in which speaks to your own heart’s rhythm.
I believe that creativity and heart are not separate. It takes a heart to dream and it takes creativity to love unconditionally. Love and creative energy I believe are the most powerful forces in the Universe. The more creative expression is engaged and supported, the deeper our hearts expand, as they are then also being nurtured to grow.
And it is through love and creativity that we will integrate healing within and without, the more we exercise them.
Everything I share is with intention of supporting an integrated and empowered experience of discovering your own heart wisdom, while activating your creative manifestation abilities that will enhance the quality of your life and in turn, create collective ripple shifts as a reflection of your example of living from that wholeness of you. I hope to inspire and nurture courageous heart explorations that lead to self-empowerment through a return to natural harmony.
You don’t have to be a visionary artist by way of your life’s work, to make your life work as a vision of artistry. Have you ever wondered what your life would be like if you started living the wonder? Activate the heart of you by cultivating the art of you and within that state of being uniquely you, you will be free.
