Tatiana ~ Tatjana

I am Tatiana, daughter of Rome.  I was born of noble rank—a position of privilege and wealth.  In those days, the leaders of Rome twisted the legends of the guardians into a vile and despicable cult for their own means.  In this, I could not be a part.  A great gnosis was sweeping across the land.  And so it was that I broke from the traditions of Rome in a quest for knowledge and truth.  It was on this quest that I found Sophia and the truth of my own divinity.  I refused my marital offers and devoted myself body, mind, and soul to the teaching of that gnosis.  This was a great risk in those days of tyranny.  My status within the hierarchy of Rome was a great threat to those who meant to keep the people enslaved.

It came to pass that Ulpian the jurist arrested me and offered me up to the circus.  But there would be no entertainment in the arena on that fateful day.  For the king of the animal kingdom saw in me the light of truth and integrity and lay at my feet to comfort my beaten body.  Ulpian did eventually see to my end but he had no audience nor glory in doing so.  And so it was that I left the material plane.  But just as Brigid refused to leave her people, I refused to leave my students.

I am a devoted daughter of Sophia and remain within the spiritual realms of the earth plane to bring comfort, stamina, and focus to the seekers of truth and knowledge.  For it is in this truth and knowledge that the sons and daughters of man will be set free.

I know your suffering for I have suffered.  I will comfort you in times of trauma and persecution.   I will give you the stamina to endure and the focus to comprehend.  Seek me and your quest will bring forth the fruit of enlightenment.

The peoples of Russia and Ukraine have embraced me and kept my memory alive, generation after precious generation.  They have made me their patron saint of students.  This act of love and respect has endeared me to their rich culture and hauntingly beautiful lands.

To invoke my presence bring this culture into your homes and call me to you.  My essence is the oil of the Siberian Fir.  This hardy, majestic spirit never quits giving to those who live in the cold boreal forests.  It sustains and shelters through the long, harsh spell of winter.  Its precious oil brings calm in the face of trauma and sparks a focused and clear mind for the seeker.

My crystal is Ukrainian beryl which holds the same energy of calming and focus as the Siberian Fir.

The music reminiscent of Russia and Ukraine is delightful to my ears.  And their art and architecture are delightful to my eyes.  Singularly or combined these things will draw my presence near.
