Gaia and the May 20, 2012 Eclipse

After writing about the Divine Feminine, Dark Goddess and today’s Annular Eclipse, I spent today alternately offering sessions and attempting to finish reading Christine R. Page’s book, “2012 and the Galactic Center: The Return of the Great Mother.” I had bought this book several years ago as part of my research for Schizandra and the Peruvian Jaguar, but I’d never started reading it until Dark Goddess/Mother synchronicities started multiplying exponentially around me.

Today’s readings and my reading about the Great Mother and the Galactic Center continued layers of other spiraling themes in my life, including Hermes Trismegistus and “The Emerald Tablet,” a text which has stalked me since 1994. Here it comes again: different book, similarly extensive references to the ancient alchemical work. A strange day it was, indeed, with the eclipse energies, some time warps presenting themselves as scheduling snafus, and a photon belt from the Pleiades. I’d read a few paragraphs only to nod off, then ask myself, “What did I just read?!” then reread the paragraphs only to fall asleep again. I wasn’t actually tired, but the combined energy of the Galactic Center topic and Earth’s actual movement through some pretty intense Galactic waves kept knocking me out.

Our air conditioner malfunctioned, too, so that our house became an imperceptibly heated steam room, which may have contributed to the reading drowsiness. When we finally recognized an issue, David went outside to check on the AC just as our landlord synchronously happened to be taking an evening walk with his wife. While he and David checked on various potential cooling issues, I learned from his wife that she’s 12 weeks pregnant. Mother Goddess energy again.

By the time we finished with all that, I had completely forgotten about the Eclipse and just wanted to eat dinner. Thai Kelp noodles and veggies eaten, I felt a strong urge to open the huge box I’d received on Friday from my dear friend, Tania Marie. My birthday’s on Tuesday, but all of a sudden, I couldn’t wait. David cut open the box for me, and I carefully dug out enough packing peanuts to retrieve my gift: the original Tania Marie painting of “Gaia.”

Gaia by Tania Marie

I love all of Tania’s paintings, but I’ve always had a special spot in my heart for this one. I didn’t even know she still had the original, since she painted it before we ever met. I got so excited because I’ve long wanted to hang something above our earthy green loveseat, but nothing quite looked right. This piece just pops, connecting with color and theme to the nearby portal doorway number 1 with its green background, orange sun and Green Man/Earth.

Only after recognizing that this was not a giclee print, did I also realize that I had been unveiling the original Gaia at the precise moment of the Annular Eclipse. Gaia arrived with a print of Tania’s portrait of her beloved Nestor, a truly cosmic rabbit who transitioned in 2008. I had the honor of getting to know “Nestie” through animal communication sessions, and she continues to work her expansive energy from beyond the veil. Her appearance with Gaia at the moment of this powerful eclipse felt like a seriously synchronized activation of earthly and cosmic energies, right in our living room, without any conscious intention on my part. Overwhelming gratitude to Tania for this tremendous gift, for her talent, love, and participation in this beautiful dance of life.

  2. aw, you’re so welcome!!! i wanted to gift you something special and personal so i’m so happy to hear of all the awesome unfoldings with these. actually, you may not remember, but the painting, gaia, i did while living in Lake Tahoe, not too long after our meeting. remember it was a transition to shake up energies after the first two intense pieces of the in lak’ech series, before i started on the third, air. nestie was done before i met you though, shortly after she came into my life. very cool energies. yesterday, interestingly, we were with dave’s family and his sister-in-law who is due end of july, had a dizzy, fainting, falling session after dinner. quite the energies and synchronous with your seeing your landlord’s pregnant wife. 🙂 i love you!

    Oh, that’s right! I do remember now. I just saw that it was 2006 and remembered we didn’t meet until maybe November or so, but yes, I remember Gaia as a departure/break. Lots of crazy energies around everywhere, but much lighter and energized, too. xoxo and love you too

    I haven’t seen or heard any feedback on the eclipse meditation from yesterday. Nothing yet on Portal2012’s site. Any intuitive messages as to the effects or outcomes?


  6. I love the painting. It has such a youthful energy. What a nice flow. Reminds me of my youth oil pastels, only with an adults skill. Must have been apprentices of the same artist in a past life… probably wrong about that. Anyway good work Tania.

    AL, all I will say is that something happened in that the people in denial are fighting even harder to stay in denial, like totally digging in their heels; the people who want things to go negatively are digging in their heels and have been rejuvenated for a bit; and the people who want love, light, freedom and joy also seem to have gotten an upgrade. The world still seems like it has some overlap among these various factions, but the differences feel so great that the overlap cannot stand for much longer.

    I didn’t resonate with being told to do a meditation only one particular way or “it won’t work,” so I didn’t plan to join that particular group visualization. There was enough going on for everyone, and so long as the general goal is similar, I feel that collective meditations can involve everyone’s particular visions, leanings and skills and still be effective, so long as the focus remains on what’s desired instead of what’s not wanted. 🙂

    Oradragon, I agree, the painting has lots of youthful energy and flow–big reasons I love it! Creativity spans across the lifetimes. 🙂
