About AlianaAlani

Writer, visual artist, spiritual facilitator, and frequent traveller. I'm Canadian born. I've lived in Ireland, touched the shores of Spain and Italy, spend time in Australia and drink in the Aloha of Hawaii as often as I can. I have a love of myth and story, its power and magic in our lives, and how it forms and colours our journeys. I am haunted by beauty and the magnificence and wonder of our world. For me, Shangrila is here and now.

A wee update…

Hey Gorgeous Beings!

plumeria-blossoms-just-about-to-openThere’s a wee update on my Sessions page. Click here to find out what it’s all aboutPrivate Sessions

Guess what?

There’s a new Universal Sacred Gate in the making and you are going to want to know about it. It’s name is – WALKING IN AN ENDLESS FIELD OF PLENTY – and it’s looking pretty good.

Imagine the infinite possibilities available to one in a field of plenty, and in the best of ways, of course.

Stay tuned. You just might want to get one.

Ah, the sun!

 

For those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere, sunlight in winter can be a fragile thing, often fleeting, here one moment and gone the next, to return one knows not when. So when the days begin to get a touch longer and the sun chooses to surprise when least expected and blast its merry way into the fabric of a day, well, it’s a rather lovely thing.

Today, there was sun!

 

 

With the sun come thoughts of Spring. And with thoughts of Spring, we must have thoughts of gardens! To ponder, to plan, to create anew. Whether flower or vegetable, bush or herb, the idea of flourishing fruitful beauty waxes most poetic to the winter heart that longs for a balmy breezy afternoon, a salad fresh from the soil, and a petal or two of buds to enhance the mood. Of course waxing poetic brings with it tones of love.

 

And tones of love, when dwelt upon for more than a millisecond, carry with them endless possibilities of a life full of magic and wonder. One kissed by the fairies and blessed by the angels. And a bite or two of chocolate too (of the dark variety, obviously).

Thus come thoughts of a garden of love. But of course!!

So if you’re feeling kissed by sunlight, drink from the cup of its beauty and magic to the very depths of your being, allow the love that bubbles up from within to flow forth from your imaginative heart like a waterfall of shimmering light – and enjoy the day.

 

For love is the answer to all things. And a garden tended with love can turn the whole world into a blessed thing.

Something new…

Hi Everyone!

Wanted to let you know, there’s a new PAGE to view which I just posted.

It’s called, ANCHORING IN THE LOVE EACH DAY. It would be awesome if you would go take a peek – click here to view, ANCHORING IN THE LOVE EACH DAY…

If you like what it has to say, then do spread the word, and DREAM the dream!

Love and infinite sparkles.

Flowers midst the chill…

It’s snowy here, with a winter frost, and a chill beyond the norm. The desire to hunker down, wrap yourself in leaves of warmth, submerge until … But this is precisely the time to dare to bloom, to open wide the tenderness of heart, and find that precious gem of golden light that speaks to the truth of you who really are.

snowdrops-3237705_1280Deep space Love blooming like snowdrops from within the ground of our remembering, bursting forth midst the sun-kissed light of day.

For this is who you are, this deep space Love. This is YOU, the Eternal Heart, calling you to remember, to live anew, to dare, to dream, to imagine infinite possibilities wrapped in infinite Love, emitting forth with infinite joy. This is YOU.

So go on now, IMAGINE … YOU bursting forth like precious snowdrops into the exquisite light of day.

 

 

I can feel your smile from here.

Yes, it’s that time!

happy-new-year-2020-celebration-with-golden-confetti_1017-21341

 

We have crested the wave from one decade to another, landing smack dab in the early morning light (okay, maybe some of you got there sooner depending on where you live) of 2020. The beginning of the beginning of the new decade.

What will we do now?

2020 – Has a nice ring, doesn’t it. Even numbers, infinite possibilities, even in the midst of seeming chaos. As though we just might be able to sculpt a beautiful story of light and love out of its core. As though magic just might live in its centre, waiting for us to discover it.

Of course, the path to it is all heart-based. Nothing less will do, right. So do we dare to sing a song of Love in the midst of whatever else the first wave attempts to throw our way? Do we see beyond the illusion to the infinite wonder? Do we say YES to a positive Universe?

The choice is ours.

So get off that surfboard for a few minutes. Drink in the deep space silence that hangs out inside your heart. And listen.

When it speaks, and it will, give gratitude for all it has told you, and then follow its magical mystical sparkle dust road to the core of what is possible in this, YOUR, life.

It will take you to the heart. It always does.

Have a wonderful, peace-filled, kind, generous, and deep love 2020 life!! 

 

 

…thanks to the person who uploaded the 2020 image online, which I obviously borrowed.

 

And a BIG thanks to YOU for daring to be the LOVE you truly are.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember – Love is the answer, always.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blessings…

 

This is a time of Love and of Light.

Drink from the cup of each reverently, letting the inner melody of both fill your heart until you are full to overflowing with the depth of wisdom and of caring each embodies, and then gently, kindly, share their blessings with your world. We will all be richer for it. As will you.

Blessings to you at this precious time.

Blessings to you, Ram Dass

ram dassThe wondrous RAM DASS has left the planet and a light has dimmed upon his departure.

His ongoing spiritual journey was deep, immense, and a gift shared over so very many years. We are indebted to him – for his courage, his strength of purpose, his wisdom, laughter, and his willingness to deep-dive into the Eternal Heart. And for reminding us of who we truly are!

He will forever be remembered for breaking the mold and daring to be.

From the shores of Hawaii, a place he lived and loved, may the scent of plumeria waft heavenward and the exquisite breezes of the Aloha be a gentle companion to him as he soars toward the stars.

Blessings to you, Ram Dass!!   Mahalo.  Much Love.

It’s almost Solstice time!

 

Winter Solstice – December 21st

For many, this is a time of reflection, renewal, even opportunity. For some, this year especially provides a window of great possibility – a door, perhaps, to a deep resonance of being where the veils lift a little, the heart opens a bit more, and a song of harmony begins to be heard, if you listen carefully.

Are you listening?

And so, the chance to meditate on all that truly matters. Not the humdrum chatter of the day, but the deep space love that lives within. To entertain its melody and dare to welcome it into the light of day. Yes, even if winter is upon us.

So go on now, meditate!

It is a time to kiss the blarney stone of love (Ireland’s going to love me for that one!) and serenade its story into the deepest corners of the heart. To watch its golden-threaded words weave their way, like fireflies of light, around the crooks and crannies of those scattered dreams, calling them back to life, maybe even now.

Go kiss that stone (well, not really) …

and dare to dream anew (okay, definitely try that one).

Yes, the Solstice is upon us. Take time to honour the power of its doorway, then if it feels right, let the love it can bring into your heart and your life. You’d be amazed at what might happen then.

Last Call…

This is to let you all know that it’s LAST CALL for ordering a Personal RADIANCE OF BEING Gate.

The door is closing a little earlier than planned, I realize, but the energies are shifting lots (and yes, ahead of time – what could that mean, one wonders – you are wondering, right) so I am following guidance on this one and putting out the call.

If it speaks to the heart, grab it while you can!

To refresh your memory on what it’s all about, click on the WHAT’S NEW page WHAT’S NEW and scroll down.

And don’t forget – this is the last, the very last, time I will be opening Personal Gates for anyone. Universal ones in 2020, yes. More Personal ones, NO.

Have an awesome day, people!

And remember, Love IS all there is. So go BE that Love!!
