Springtime!

Digital Camera

For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, Spring has either sprung (depending on where you are) or is just around the corner. Birds are chirping their way back into our awareness, and buds are teasing forth on trees for all to see. It is time for jackets instead of coats and runners instead of boots, if we’re lucky. April can be a fickle month in the North so it’s always up for grabs. All of which means, don’t put those shovels away just yet, cuz ya just never know.

Traditionally Spring is a time of beginnings. So let’s begin to envision the positive. Let’s envision a peaceful world, a happy one, and let’s dare to open even more to serenity and kindness in ourselves and in our lives, no matter how crazy things might appear to be. And yes, they do appear to be incredibly crazy. But…

The old is slipping away. The new is being born.

Because it’s the start of APRIL, I’ve changed things on the WHAT’S NEW page. Check it out by clicking here. WHAT’S NEW And the Poetry page has a different entry as well. Poetry   If any of it speaks to you, if you want more info or want to buy, just email me at 22shangrila.com.

So here’s to Spring! Let’s plant seeds of loving wherever we can. Then let’s help them prosper, flourish, and grow. Loving. Believe it or not, it’s what we do best.

Namaste, & may happy moments be yours.

Happy New Year Everyone!

I wish you happiness and joy in 2017.

May your fondest dreams come true. May love always light your path. May your life be graced each day with peace. And may you dare to share the gifts divinely given to help heal and prosper this world.

 

Be a light unto yourself.
Be a light for us all.

HAPPY 2017!

Let the Love shine!

single-red-rose-3IT’S SUNDAY … So let the Love shine, folks.

Let it pour from your heart like the beacon of possibility it is meant to be. Let it radiate. Let it heal. Let it empower. Let it be the light of Love that nourishes and enriches this world, the Love that nourishes and enriches you. See it flowing forth like a never ending waterfall … and see the world (no matter what form it may be in) drink from the cup of that Love and be transformed.

Let Love prevail. And let it help our world prosper again.

Another ‘Snippet’ coming your way

Since the response to my including a wee ‘snippet’ of an image of one of the Templates from The Garden was so positive, I’ve decided to post another. If it intrigues and inspires you to want to become its Keeper, please do make contact.

Here is – THE GREENING

Digital Camera

THE GREENING (detail) – created by Aliana Alani 2016

Done on high quality watercolour paper – In gold, three beautiful shades of green, and a breath of a touch of silver.   Size:  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.

Again, this is only a snippet of the original template. For further information and to purchase, email me – aliana@22shangrila.com – and mark ‘THE GREENING’ in the subject section.

As always, I wish you much joy.
