Violet Flame ~ Crystal Illuminations Painting


Crystal Illumination - Violet Flame (1)

Crystal Illumination – Violet Flame by Tania Marie

 

As you know I have taken an indefinite painting hiatus, feeling drawn to focus my creative energy elsewhere, but now and then have accepted some painting commissions if it felt in alignment. This is the first of three commissioned paintings I had promised, which takes me back to my beloved Crystal Illuminations paintings that many of you lovingly embraced. The next two custom pieces will be a continuation of the spiritual animal paintings in the Universal ARKitecture series taking us into the realm of bird symbolism.

This was commissioned as a gift from a dear client to her sister to support her in her life with her personal journey and challenges she has been facing. I was given the opportunity to intuit the crystals for this intent and then channel the energy forth that they reflected in support of this.

What resulted, I instantly fell in love with and while I haven’t painted in a REALLY long time, this piece magickally came together and flowed more quickly than any of these crystal pieces I’ve created.

When I tuned in I had immediately felt Amethyst for the energy to support her sister, but did some research anyway into crystal properties to make sure I wasn’t overlooking anything. I found a couple here and there that supported one thing or another she was looking for, but nothing all-encompassing and truly as intentfully potent as Amethyst in any and all of these regards. So in the end, indeed Amethyst was what spoke loud and clear, without getting into the personal specifics.

Amethyst Properties Include: extremely powerful and protective, high spiritual vibration, enhances serene and higher states of consciousness and meditation, calms and stimulates the mind, improves concentration, emotional centering and contentment within self, brings peace to any challenged experience, uplifts, one of the most spiritual stones, promotes divine love for self and others, selflessness, spiritual wisdom, opens and strengthens intuition and enhances psychic gifts, works with crown chakra, third eye and heart opening, promotes peace and inspiration, represents principles of complete metamorphosis, soothes, relaxes, heals, promotes healthy sleep habits and channeling, good for prosperity, because of its transmutational energies it helps open gateways into intense and transforming spiritual experiences while protecting the wearer from black magic, a protection stone in general, breaks up old emotional thought processes, attracts justice, protects and wards off danger and violent death, increases the activity in the right brain, cuts through illusion, as well as raises thoughts and aspirations to a higher spiritual level. Amethyst brings clarity to the conscious and unconscious mind. Amethyst is well known — as from the ancients — as a sobriety stone and used for millenia to assist in getting rid of addictions to alcohol, drugs, smoking, etc, and destructive compulsive behaviors of all kinds. Physically amethyst is said by spiritual healers and mystical lore to heal the withdrawal symptoms of any sort of addiction, help with headaches, insomnia, arthritis, diabetes, pain relief, circulatory system issues, endocrine system problems, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, immune system deficiencies, asthma, phobias, pregnancy and preventing miscarriage, menopause, PMS, and general healing.

When I visited the Gem Faire (by the way this commission had come in the night before I was set to go there), I was open to whatever would come through, but everything led me to Amethyst. I found the two stones that are used in this painting from my good friend who sells crystals. I love his stuff because they are very pure and high vibrational. But I was drawn to two stones, one of which I didn’t know about, and was pleasantly surprised to come to find it was actually an Amethyst as well, but an even higher vibrational one!

So the longer, larger crystal is an Amethyst and the smaller one at top is what’s known as a Vera Cruz Amethyst. I knew instantly I must get both for her, as they would work on different levels of the integrative healing and support, as well as align with current energies and where things are moving more into vibrationally.

Vera Cruz Amethyst  properties include: this is an extremely high vibration stone attuned to the transmutational violet flame. It works with the etheric blueprint and DNA to bring about profound inter-dimensional cellular healing. A stone of spiritual purification, it removes imprints and attachments of all kinds. A protective stone, it facilitates safe out-of-body experiences and spiritual journeying. Instantly takes you into a beta-brainwave state, facilitating meditation, trance and divination skills. A powerful tool for shamanic work at high levels. It activates and cleanses all the chakras, especially the third eye and crown or higher crown chakras. Supports overcoming addictions.

So, so powerful!!!

And immediately what started channeling through for this painting was to create a violet flame, nautilus portal that would access the many layers of the integrative healing and transmutational process, helping to journey to the core and work on all levels physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually when meditated with and gazed upon, or simply having near you.

Violet is a ray of highest healing and purification and symbolic of transmutation to the octave of light. Of course it is also connected with Reiki.

The Nautilus shells to me are of an ancient nature and with its integrated chambers is symbolic of continuous progress, balance, new ideas, visionary discoveries, innovation and inspiration, renewal, eternal continuity, expansion, consistency, evolution, interconnectedness, divine perfection, natural flow, stability and internal harmony within regeneration, abundant creative energy – in general, a symbol of life and “the journey home” to Source within All That Is, through a succession of transcendent spirals. When gazing upon the Nautilus it provides a serene sense of balance and well being.

The spiral itself is a symbol of creation, movement, fluidity, surrender/releasing, holistic growth, and awareness of the one within the context of the whole. It reveals the cyclical nature of life, the consciousness of nature from core center expanding outward, and the relationship between unity and multiplicity. It is the limitless spirals that move both “inward towards the Source of creation and eternally outward with Source’s continual self-creation.” In this way, the spiral reflects the contiguous journey home to who you really are and the journey to be one with Source.

The painting is done on an 8” x 10” canvas and in layers of deep purples to ethereal violet and then I was guided to infuse touches of white, cream and this beautiful golden green to access a high level of healing from the higher heart. There’s a very organic feeling, like birthing from the womb of the sacred feminine, but also like a multi-dimensional vortex of energy.

Crystal Illumination - Violet Flame (2)

Crystal Illumination – Violet Flame by Tania Marie

I took two photos..one of the painting before I placed the crystals on it, so that you can see what is layered underneath the layers and then a photo with the crystals on. There is a lot of energy embedded into the piece with each stroke of paintbrush and each placement of color and lines.

I have titled it simply, “Violet Flame”.

As you can see, depending on lighting, it shifts. It’s so hard to capture paintings in photos. These are the best I could get, but think they came out quite well.

The large crystal is quite heavy, so I put some cardboard reinforcement into the back of the canvas in order to keep the canvas supported. And like always, I was so surprised to see how perfectly the crystals fit into the design, as I don’t place them first and paint around. I just create what wants to channel through from the energy of the crystals, as their reflection and essence, as well as the energies to work with, and then place the crystals on.

So amazing how they flow with the design and it’s the first time I create movement happening with the crystals, as they seem to be flowing with the painting and the Amethyst is anchoring and emerging from below, as the energy transmutates into the essence of the Very Cruz Amethyst at top of the flame.

I so enjoyed creating this piece and it has gotten me all inspired for the next two large paintings that will be channeling through this month. There is a lot of love I put into this, and all of my creations, as I so want to provide a pure essence of powerful support and inspiration to any and all who view this pieces.

Today marks a new month’s cycle, as we enter into April’s Spring energy. Last night we had an on pour of rain here, which was beautifully symbolic of those “April Showers” and this morning it inspired me to ponder the symbolism of that poetic rhyme “April showers bring May flowers.”

It feels to be a reminder that even the most “perceived” unpleasant of things can bring forth very enjoyable things – which in the case of the poem is an abundance of flowers in the following month. Many of the great things in life come to those who wait and who see the silver lining in all experiences – yes, even the emotional cleansing and physical purging. And when the natural process is embraced, you can find yourself receiving the new with greater appreciation, ease, and joy.

So, it is a lesson of patience, detachment from judgment, a shift in…

Tania’s Offering of the Month – April Showers Bring May Flowers “Spring Into Creative Abundance”


Today marks a new month’s cycle, as we enter into April’s Spring energy. Last night we had an on pour of rain here, which was beautifully symbolic of those “April Showers” and this morning it inspired me to ponder the symbolism of that poetic rhyme “April showers bring May flowers.”

It feels to be a reminder that even the most “perceived” unpleasant of things can bring forth very enjoyable things – which in the case of the poem is an abundance of flowers in the following month. Many of the great things in life come to those who wait and who see the silver lining in all experiences – yes, even the emotional cleansing and physical purging. And when the natural process is embraced, you can find yourself receiving the new with greater appreciation, ease, and joy.

So, it is a lesson of patience, detachment from judgment, a shift in perspective to realize the gift in everything, and the trust in the natural cycles where things aren’t always as they seem, yet from the unexpected or smallest of things can come a great showering of fulfillment. Everything always goes through a Spring cycle of renewal and even the “cleansing” rains are beautiful stimuli that nurture the floral displays of soul and life, as they enrich the new roots that fortify their bounty.

Many of you may be cleansing yourselves from the old on many levels, which will be a detoxification leading to an intoxication of fresh newness. And all of this, to tap into your fertile creative energy to bring forth the authentic blossom that you are and produce the garden of experiences that will unfold as a result.

This led me to this month’s offering that is twofold in terms of mirroring that creative abundance I know everyone is working with right now.

The first part of the offering was an inspiration of that “Spring Energy” of awakening, renewal, passion, and creation in the works. And I immediately was called to 3 paintings I have created that perfectly mirror this energy and that are encoded with the energetic frequencies to support this.

These include: “Awakening”, “Heart Sanctum ~ Love In, Love Out”, and “Cosmic Tree ~ Heart of Sky: Mayan Cosmology of Creation”.

So for this month, until April 30th, I am guided to offer these 3 ORIGINAL paintings at 75% off to energetically support these creative shifts people are exploring and that can shift the energy in a sacred space for meditative and creative visualization practices. I have heard from people who have seen these originals at shows, and even their images online, that they have opened something in their hearts and consciousness. Perhaps they speak to you.

This is a HUGE discount and unheard of pricing for “Originals”. Prices do not include Shipping/Handling or Processing Fees. These are only available to ship in the U.S. If local, pick up can be arranged in lieu of shipping.

The second part of this month’s offering involves ways in which you can help support and integrate a greater infusement of your creative potential and empowerment toward all that you desire. This includes tapping into your magick manifesting mode!

IMG_9013So for this month, this will include a discount of $75 (I’m liking the 75 energy, which numerologically breaks down to the creative abundance, magick, creative self-expression, joy of living, and new adventures number of 3 when added together) that you can apply to either an upcoming, empowering Reiki Workshop, or a Sacred Tattoo Design – both ways to enhance your life with abilities to create more of what you want and creative self expression.

To receive the $75 Discount, you will need to book either a Reiki workshop (one I have scheduled, will be scheduling, or one you’d like to attend at a future date we create together) or Sacred Tattoo Design commission by April 30th.

Full balance (after your discount is applied) of your Reiki workshop will be needed upfront and in terms of the tattoo design, the $75 will be taken off the first hour deposit that is always needed to book a spot on my waiting list. Both of these to be booked by April 30th.

If you have any questions, would like to purchase one of the 3 paintings, or book a Reiki workshop or Sacred Tattoo Design commission please contact me at tania@taniamarie.com.

Visionary Art to Shift You into New Realities – Full Series of the “ARK” & Eternal Harmony Now Available


Dance_of_the_Twin_Flames_sm

Dance of the Twin Flames

I’m happy to announce that my latest series, Universal ARKitecture, is now available in its fullness at my website www.taniamarie.com. Having such a full plate these days, I had gotten behind on updateing my website, but you can now check out the series and the latest at the link, which literally just got completed (for now). 😉

While I feel refreshed, having caught up with things, there is still quite a lot more new announcements that will be coming in. For now, you will find hints of what’s to come on the home page.

But this post is simply to share my cherished series with you all together for the first time. This is a momentous occasion for me that feels like when a mother gives birth to her children. And interestingly there are nine, so that sort of equates to the nine months of labor in a way, not to mention the perfection of a full cycle coming to closure and renewing.

All nine of these sacred animal spirit paintings can be purchased as originals or various giclees on both canvas or fine art paper to suit your desired size and affordability.

Note: “The Power of Silence” original is no longer available. But you can still purchase original-sized giclees of it and the quality of these giclees is astounding. 

If you have any questions about any of these, about sizes, or if you would like to purchase several to have in your sacred space, spiritual center, yoga studio…contact me with requests.

I just today shipped off all 9 original sized giclees on canvas overseas to a healing center and I couldn’t be more honored, as this is the perfect mirror of how I see the paintings I create being utilized – to support others through the energy they convey and that they are imbued with, which assists shifting into new and empowered experiences.

Explore the series of 9 and read about their collective and individual meanings here: Universal ARKitecture

I have also written individual posts on each that you can peruse by name on this blog.

Eternal Harmony

Eternal Harmony – The Journey Home

With the updates, I have also been able to finally add the beloved new piece, Eternal Harmony – The Journey Home to my website for purchase of giclees as well. Many people had shared resonance with this piece, so I had announced giclees available a couple of weeks ago, but hadn’t officially gotten it up on my website until today.

Giclees are still available at Pre-Order Special price on this piece until September 22, 2013. So you have just under a month still to place orders and receive 20% Off.

If you are interested in pre-ordering, contact me for info and purchasing details.

Pre-Order Special – Prints Now Available of Eternal Harmony – The Journey Home


Eternal Harmony

Eternal Harmony – The Journey Home by Tania Marie
30″ x 40″ Acrylic on Canvas with a touch of Metallic Gold at Center

There was an amazing response to this painting I posted a few weeks ago that really kind of blew me away. I was so moved by the sharing of feelings that people had from viewing this and the extent to which they described those feelings and what it reflected for them.

This inspires the creative force behind what I do, as while I express my authenticity, I am aware how it simultaneously is collectively connected in service.

When I create a channeled painting, it is always Source from which I am creating from that comes through my individual connection and expression of that.

Because of this and after receiving several messages from people that were interested in ordering prints of it, I looked into making that possible and am happy to share that this will be so.

It really meant a lot to me to feel what others received from this channeled creation, as it reflected something very pure birthing forth.

I was deeply touched by this expression that someone shared when they saw it:

“What a breathtaking painting, Tania. The energy of Love you infused into this is as unmistakable as the essence of Divine Inspiration that gave birth to it. It truly represents our collective journey Home, with the various swirls symbolizing the various life experiences that all serve to lead us to a beautiful and infinite space in the center of the Universe….which can be said is our Heart and Soul.”

I shared about this piece when I first posted it, which you can read here: Eternal Harmony – The Journey Home

All of that being said, Pre-Orders are now available for this painting, while it is in process of recreation.

So if you are interested in this piece, you can place orders now at Special Pre-Order Discount Prices of 20% Off until September 22nd, 2013 (Fall Equinox), after which the full pricing will go into effect.

Eternal Harmony – The Journey Home will be available in 3 sizes and 2 different options of fine art paper or gallery wrap canvas (gallery wrap means the image will flow over in extension, onto the sides of the canvas so that you do not end up with white/blank sides, but a beautiful extended image that does not need to be framed, as it beautifully creates a flowing/continuous image).

Each giclee on canvas will be hand-touched with metallic gold by me, so you will have the same effects as the original, along with the personal artist touch to each.

Here are the options and pricing for pre-orders (along with the full pricing) – Shipping/Handling not included:

9″ x 12″ Giclee on Fine Art Paper – Pre-Order Special Price: $48 – (Full Price: $60) = 20% Off

22.5″ x 30″ Canvas Gallery Wrap – Pre-Order Special Price: $400 – (Full Price: $500) = 20% Off

30″ x 40″ Canvas Gallery Wrap (original size) – Pre-Order Special Price: $640 – (Full Price: $800) = 20% Off

Payment Plan Options Available – Contact me at tania@taniamarie.com with inquiries and orders. 

“Eternal Harmony – The Journey Home” – Painting Inspiration Comes to Life


Eternal Harmony

Eternal Harmony – The Journey Home by Tania Marie
30″ x 40″ Acrylic on Canvas with a touch of Metallic Gold at Center

Today’s post is on the inspiration behind a commissioned painting I just completed. I was given creative and intuitional license to bring a vision to life for a long time, dear friend and client’s partner who is turning 60 next week.

He has always been a huge supporter of my art, for which I am grateful, and had recently purchased two of my Crystal Illuminations paintings, of which were an energetically complimenting pair that perfectly mirrored him and his girlfriend/partner.

This piece he brought home to her ignited the energetic connection between us, creating a thread for channeling from her to me, and vice versa.

I have yet to meet her in person, but knowing my friend and having this energetic connection through him and the piece of art she has, I instantly had a sense of the essence for this painting when my friend first asked me if I’d like to help him create this special gift.

The only guideline I was given was something in the “earth tones”, but the rest was up to me, as he shared he fully trusted my intuition and vision. I was really touched by this and felt that this creation would be a very special piece on many levels, especially given the very transformational time I know she is in, on her journey of life. Immediately I asked him if she had a connection/resonation with the beach, of which he stated, “Boy, you never fail to astound me. She loves the beach!!! You are connected. I leave it in your hands.”

The essence of the beach and ocean were my muse for this piece, and the time I’ve spent recently there collecting sea treasures of shells along the water’s edge have been feeding my inspiration. I knew this would be a very symbolic and more abstract/impressionistic vision that would be created, but it would be imbued with the nurturing harmony, balance, and rhythmic flow of eternal life that being on the sand and feeling the renewing water roll over them, brings.

I kept seeing touches of teal for the painting, even though “earth tones” were the focus, and this not only felt perfect in mirror to bringing in the ocean’s energy in synergy with the crystal-infused sands of the beach, but also created the balance and flow, the other elements of her energetic footprint, and reflected the color of one of her cherished crystal friends – an aqua aura quartz – that I found out she had after the vision of this color’s frequency spoke to me as needing to be woven in.

Combining all of these elements, along with:

  • feeling the simplistic elegance of her nature
  • the loving tenderness, yet power she embodies
  • her nurturing and creative spirit that is now needing to balance out with focus on herself more
  • the journey she has been on in coming to find that inner peace in knowing herself amidst the ever-changing experiences

I then saw/felt the clarity of what was to take form.

Not only can the image take on different forms, depending on who is viewing it, as at times I see a whirlpool or the inside of a wave. At times I see butterfly wings or the feathers of birds. Sometimes it is a blossoming rose. But underlying it is a portal of experience and ultimately it is a visionary impression from the vision that manifested as inspiration from the Nautilus Shell and its connection to the “spiral of life”. And while painting it, I was so in the “vortex” of creation, that the journey flowed magically like the cosmic ocean of experience life indeed is.

Life is a spiral of new cycles and opportunities. It is a spiritual journey of nonlinear evolution to pass through similar points with different perspectives each time.

“The human mind always makes progress, but it is a progress in spirals.” ~Madame de Stael

The Nautilus is a tropical cephalopod with a multi-chambered, spiral shell. Its chambers are in perfect proportion as they continually grow to create new and more expansive ones, without changing shape. Because there is a common shared “lifeline” that weaves the connection between each chamber of “life experience”, all parts are integral to the entire journey and are part of the whole – never forgotten, but ever-changing. The structure of its shell is connected to a mathematical curve called a logarithmic spiral, Fibonacci number, and golden ratio.

Wikipedia shares:

“Approximate logarithmic spirals can occur in nature; golden spirals are one special case of these. It is sometimes stated that spiral galaxies and Nautilus shells get wider in the pattern of a golden spiral, and hence are related to both and the Fibonacci series.”

The Nautilus with its integrated chambers is symbolic of continuous progress, balance, new ideas, visionary discoveries, innovation and inspiration, renewal, eternal continuity, expansion, consistency, evolution, interconnectedness, divine perfection, natural flow, stability and internal harmony within regeneration, abundant creative energy – in general, a symbol of life and “the journey home” to Source within All That Is, through a succession of transcendent spirals.

When gazing upon the Nautilus it provides a serene sense of balance and well being.

The spiral itself is a symbol of creation, movement, fluidity, surrender/releasing, holistic growth, and awareness of the one within the context of the whole. It reveals the cyclical nature of life, the consciousness of nature from core center expanding outward, and the relationship between unity and multiplicity. It is the limitless spirals that move both “inward towards the Source of creation and eternally outward with Source’s continual self-creation.”

In this way, the spiral reflects the contiguous journey home to who you really are and the journey to be one with Source.

The painting I created has multiple layers, but at the core it is supporting the path of least resistance, as growth and change CAN be much easier than we choose to experience it. A gentle reminder that subtle changes and changes of perspective, one after the other, bring big and beautiful results along your blossoming path.

I am grateful for the opportunity to channel this creative vision and bring it to life from my heart to the heart of all who will experience it, but most importantly to whom it was created for and in honor of.
