These are templates I have been working on for awhile (with a few still to bring forth). They are coming to you in small groups starting with these four –

Love     Harmony     Radiant Health      Inner Wealth      (plus a bonus gift – Inner Peace)

It is my prayer that these Meditation Templates will resonate with your heart, assist you in your spiritual journey, and also help our world come that much closer to acknowledging and living a radiant life in The Garden of Love.

For as many of us know –

Love is the answer.

Always has been.          Always will be.

A Wee Reminder…

So you all know, here are the Templates from The Garden that are looking for their new homes, and hence are available for sale.

I am listing title, size, and focus below so that you can get a feel for each of them. Should you be interested and want prices and to see a pdf of the images, simply send me an email at 22shangrila.com (please mark ‘templates from the garden’ in the subject section) or leave a comment below. A payment plan is possible, should you need it.

 

THE WATERS OF COMPASSION

Done on high quality watercolour paper – in gold, silver, pale aqua & deep electric blue pens.  Size is – 19” x 22 ¼”

Focus:  The spiral of life carries within it all energies and frequencies. To many, the highest form of love is Compassion. THE WATERS OF COMPASSION is a Template from The Garden that calls on us to illuminate our relationships in the here & now, be they the inner or with others, via the portal of loving kindness and compassion – to ensure that our personal Gardens are blossoming in harmony with the high frequencies of Compassion that are now escalating within The Garden of Love. To become a Keeper of this template is to commit oneself to such a path.

SERENITY

Size:  15” x 22” – on high-quality watercolour paper – done in gold, silver, light aqua, deep teal, and lime coloured pens

Focus:  To walk in The Garden of Life with a deep sense of calm and nner knowing, viewing all around from a place of peace – these are the qualities that SERENITY brings. To contemplate its beauty, meditate on its form and frequencies is to open a door to inner harmony, and indirectly, to contribute to the harmony of the world as well.

TOWARDS THE STARLIGHT GARDEN            

12 ¼” x 22 ¼” – Done on high-quality watercolour paper in gold, silver & black pens.

Focus:  There is a beginning to everything. TOWARDS THE STARLIGHT GARDEN is a conscious first-step walk toward a world of harmony and love, where hearts begin to open and eyes begin to see. It provides the opportunity to discover that The Garden of Life resides within and around us all, here and now. Meditating on it can help open you to this awareness.

THE GREENING

Done on high quality watercolour paper – In gold, three beautiful shades of green, and a breath of a touch of silver – Size is 15” x 22 ¼”

Focus:   THE GREENING is traditionally known as a time when things begin to flourish – when that which has been seeded, births and comes into its own voice of expression. It is a special time, full of manifesting possibility and the song of life. Nowhere is this more prevalent than in The Garden. This stage in The Garden’s evolution (and in a sense within our own) is both celebrated and enhanced by this new template.

There is joy and delight here, a touch of magic and wonder. The air is clear. The sun is soft and warm. And all around, life is smiling. Everything feels like it is dancing toward a delicious fruition. It is, after all, the time of THE GREENING.

 

All Templates from The Garden are created by Aliana Alani.

As always, I wish you much joy.

In The Realm of Sky

I mentioned last month that I would be taking the pdf of In The Realm of Sky off the site. It took a little longer to get around to than anticipated due to some unexpected developments in my life (more on that later, maybe). So today is the day.

I truly hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as I did writing it, and I hope you have enjoyed receiving it free-of-charge.  To me, it is a magical story.

Until a print book copy is done (hopefully late this year), the pdf of the story will still be available upon request, but for a small fee. Just email me at 22shangrila.com or leave a comment/request below if you haven’t read In The Realm of Sky and want to.

I’ll be keeping a wee info page regarding the story on the site so that anyone can check it out at their leisure.

Wishing you a heart-filled delicious day!

??????????????

Remember …

that deep within

You are the love you seek.

To those of you who celebrate it – may this time of light fill each day with joy and may harmony & love prevail throughout all your years to come.

happy chanukah

A Friendly Universe…

 

 

white rose

AMONG OTHER GEMS OF WISDOM, Einstein has been quoted as saying, ‘that the most important decision we can make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or a hostile universe’. I’m guessing he was also saying that whichever one we believe in is where we will focus not only our attention but our resources. In other words if I believe the universe is hostile, then I must create measures to protect myself (think: guns, walls, armor). If I believe the universe is friendly, then I must come to the table of life with an open heart, perhaps even an outstretched hand.

Personally I vote for the friendly universe. I can’t picture any other reason for hanging around:  The hostile universe having been done a zillion times over and truly (if one were being cosmically honest), boring beyond belief (an interesting turn of words, I realize).

But here’s the trick. And it’s especially true if the choice is new. Just because I choose to view the universe as friendly does not mean that the buggy-boos of the hostile one won’t come to my door to taunt me. To see how serious I am about the world of friendly. To even say, ‘hello hello, won’t you come and play my game – after all, it’s the only one in town’.  Well it’s not.

And yes, I have walked through the world that is hostile. I’ve experienced its fear. I know what it feels like. I’ve been challenged by it. And I know how hard, when in its midst, it can be to see and feel anything else. When it feels like your heart is being torn apart and everything you hold dear is being cast to the wind.

But it is precisely then that we must turn our attention to a universe of love, if that is what we truly want and believe in. We must be courageous in our knowing, daring in our awareness, and constant in our vision of a world, and yes a universe, that is in harmony and balance with itself and with all else. We must turn to the harmony within and let its light cast a glow of love within ourselves and then outward into the world – our world – until the mist and the buggy-boos of the hostile dissolve.  And they will – no matter how real they appear to be – if we hold to the love long enough to strength its chords and allow its music to ring forth.

John Lennon, Imagine

So if you vote for a friendly universe (and this by the way is a good time to make a choice if you haven’t already) – think harmony – think love – think balance – think peace – think it NOW – see it everywhere (yes, even through and beyond that hostile mist) and then feel it as though it were the most delicious wondrous experience of your life, until lo and behold you discover it has become your life, and your world.

AND REMEMBER, ultimately we are all stardust dancing in the winds of the Eternal – the Heart of Love.  Everything else is an illusion.

 

Stay strong and friendly Canada.  It’s who you are.maple leaf

Exploring The Possible … Through the Power of Story

I recently created a Group Page on Facebook called – Exploring the Possible … Through the Power of Story. It has been created to provide a place for people to share their stories and visions of a world of harmony & love, with the idea that in doing so, we and our world can blossom. The article that explains it all is below. You do have to ask to be a member but otherwise it’s an open site, so when you have time, go to the Group Page, take a look and see if it’s for you.

????????????????????????????????

THIS GROUP IS FOR ANYONE TRULY INTERESTED IN ENVISIONING & LIVING IN A WORLD OF HARMONY & LOVE – HERE & NOW

…The group has been started by ALIANA ALANI

 THROUGH THE POWER OF STORY…

                EVERYTHING IN LIFE IS A STORY. The stories we tell ourselves. The ones we tell each other. The ones we tell our world. Story is how we define the inner and outer of our lives, and it is how we choose to change – from an old story that no longer serves us into a new story of who we want to become.

COLLECTIVELY THESE STORIES become our histories, myths and legends. They waft through the annals of time to a later date where you or I read about them, ponder, and are often enlightened. They are the jewels in the treasure chest of life. They can also be those pesky chains that bind us to the past.

STORY COMES IN MANY FORMS – through the power of imagination and intent, it can take shape via word, sound, and visual – think book, blog, film, video, YouTube, theatre, photography, painting, illustration, speaking, singing, rapping, slam poetry, and of course music.

This is where you and I come in.

 

THE STORY OF A WORLD OF HARMONY & LOVE:

                FOR CENTURIES PEOPLE have spoken of a land of milk and honey; a place resplendent with harmony, love, and abundance. Whether envisioned through the eyes of a poet or storyteller, philosopher, mystic or messiah, it is ever etched within the fabric of the collective mind and heart of we, the people of planet earth.

                THIS LAND OF POSSIBILITY has over time been gifted many names. Some call it Shangri-La or Shamballa, some The Land of The Blessed, some Paradise, and many, The Garden of Eden. And though the dynamics within may vary, the essence of all these stories remains the same. In it, we are in tune with our inner spirit, at one with our hearts, in balance with mind and body, and at peace with all in the world which we inhabit. In it, we effortlessly flourish in a magnificent manifestation of the celebration of life. I call this place, The Garden.                   And in my heart, I know it already exists.

So here’s the opportunity – and I’m hoping you’ll want to come onboard.

 

WHAT IF WE EACH TAKE THE TIME to envision what The Garden looks like to us? How we feel in it and how we act in it? What if we tell a story about that in whatever form feels right? What if we share that story – here, now?

BY DOING IT, we shine a light on it in our hearts. By sharing it, we shine a light on it in our world.

IMAGINE – your story calling out a song to someone else’s – maybe you’re in North America, maybe they are in India, maybe Bali or Hawaii, Australia or New Zealand, Europe or Asia, Africa or the Middle East – maybe the story sounds similar, maybe even the same. IMAGINE – the power of love in that.

SO WHETHER YOU WRITE a poem, a short story, a song; whether you put something on YouTube and link it here; whether you do a painting or a series of photographs; whether you do an improv session at your school or local theatre and film it for us to see; whether you do it as a group or by yourself – whatever wonderful form you choose to take – take the time to tell us your story, your vision, your dream of a world of harmony and balance, love and prosperity – here and now.

HELP THE VISION GROW. The crazy thing is, if you tell it often enough, you’ll end up living it. Think where we’ll all be then.

 

JOIN THE VISION – CREATE THE MAGIC – SHINE A LIGHT

…and remember, this is a place for sharing positive loving stories … nothing less will do

ALOHA … and thank you,  ALIANA

??????????????

 

Every garden, whether it’s the garden of your heart, your life, or your world requires nourishment to grow. For it to flourish and to truly blossom, it requires love.

Love the best of you and your garden into being now.

You deserve the very best and so does your world.

An Invitation …

You are warmly invited to view my new sacred geometry artwork –

THE UNFOLDING & FLOWERING OF THE GARDEN.

Each piece is a unique one-of-a-kind template, created via sacred geometry (with occasional added images), to open a door to and encourage the flourishing of The Garden here and now; to shine a light on a world that, at another level of our awareness, already exists – a world of beauty, harmony, and love where all prosper in balance and joy.

Each piece is done on high quality watercolour paper, in gold, silver, and coloured pens, sometimes with a touch of luminescent paint, and are on various sizes of paper.

For those of you who know first-hand the sacred geometry work I’ve been doing, either via personal gateways or logos, these will definitely interest you. They take the turn of being both a powerful doorway and a beautiful piece of artwork all at the same time. If you have not seen the work before, then these are certainly to be experienced.

You can view this work by appointment, either in person or via Skype.

Please note: I will not be putting photo images of any of this work online, either on my web blog or via email, for the simple reason that it is one-of-a-kind artwork. If you wish to do a Skype call, send me an email first so that we can arrange a time. You can email me at: aliana@22shangrila.com – Prices are available upon request.

You are welcome to forward this invitation to anyone who you feel will be genuinely interested.

These are truly beautiful powerful images and energies of The Garden, they are unique, and I am excited to be bringing them forth for you at this time.

I would love to hear from you. 

D

Blessings & Aloha,

Aliana
