Kwan Yin: compassionate care

Kwan Yin’s esoteric attributes are those of compassion, healing, and centering.
She lives in the heart chakra, where she helps you stand in full, gentle acceptance of your beautiful Self – a completely lovable, worthy and valuable being.

Her Story

Kwan Yin, Mother of Compassion in ancient Chinese culture, blows gently into your life, and should be welcomed as an eternal source of comfort and peace. Kwan Yin’s values are about co-operation, sharing, balance, harmony and partnership; she is highly sensitive and aware.

Kwan Yin is light and weightless – the qualities that result from highly tuned vales of tolerance and acceptance.

Her Modern Energy

She is here to tell you to release factors that inhibit you, that prevent you from connecting with others.

Melt those walls of ice around your heart; forgive the person who you feel has committed a grievance against you; open your heart and radiate love so that love can come back to you.

Reconnect With Your Inner Kwan Yin

Close your eyes in a tranquil space. Visualise Kwan Yin resting with the world on one shoulder, her cheek resting against it. She sees you, and you are drawn to the love radiating from her heart.

She shows you how to take the world from your shoulders, hold it in your hands, and dance in joyful, carefree circles. You see the earth’s water rippling, the leaves in the trees blowing, the birds soaring without effort. Know this is happening purely thanks to your joy.

When you walk through each day, remember Kwan Yin’s presence whenever you see the soaring birds, the rustling leaves, the rippling waters.

Use these triggers as a reminder to take the world off your shoulders, and to dance with abandon, with your face to the skies and your arms in the air.

This is exactly the vision I had when I first met Kwan Yin way back in 1997.

It absolutely worked for me. I felt profound peace, and for the first time, began feeling like I could emerge from a period of pain.

Having very little self-esteem at the time, I realised I had some serious work to do. Like finding and establishing a new set of morals and standards, for starters. Not an easy task considering my background – one where criticism and guilt had a firm hold in my DNA.

I wasn’t ambitious for a miracle – I just wanted to learn my own worth and how to say words like, ‘no’ and ‘help’.

It was a case of baby steps, baby steps to start with. But through dedicated and regular work incorporating chakra, intuitive and goddess wisdom I gained an insight into a life filled with meaning and purpose. Yes!!!

I wish you well as you develop your relationship with your inner Kwan Yin, and deepen your journey to self-compassion and self-care.

What Would Kwan Yin Do?

… If she were in your situation she would keep the Love Highway a two-way street. She would foster sacred balance in the giving and receiving of love, compassion, trust and respect.

She would also rev up the three G-forces of Love: Grace, Generosity and Gratitude and make this                           her modus operandi.

Kwan Yin manifesting in my own life…

(Sourced from my newsletter dated 6 May 2014)

“My husband had an affair”…

“He had an affair left his family,” wrote a grieving wife upon discovering her husband’s infidelity.

“I have no idea what to do but cry!

Goddesses, I have been there, in these shoes, and if it is any consolation to anyone else this is happening to…

It was the making of me.

I have been in the space where there is no light, not even at the end of the tunnel.

I have tunneled under the bedcovers never wanting to come out. I have plummeted to the depths of physical pain, of the heart breaking into two. I have spent years asking myself, “Why?”

And at the end of this journey, I reached a point where I stopped doubting, stopped playing the loop of self-deprecating questions, stopped feeling stagnant and small. I even reached a point where I stopped caring!

I just took a deep breath, and said, “Well then…” And, for days at a time I could smile again. I could feel confident again that I’m actually a beautiful person.

I could go for weeks without thinking about the betrayal – not even once – until eventually the weeks stretched into months and my worries became daily celebrations of freedom, self-discovery, and deeper journeying into self-appreciation and care.

I can’t say that I’ll ever be able to forgive my ex-husband for what he did, but I am now at a stage where I can thank him.

Looking back now, I recognise that deep down I knew it wasn’t working for us.

I wasn’t strong enough to withstand his emotional manipulation of me. I wasn’t self-aware enough to demand that my needs and wants were as important as his. And I wasn’t experienced enough to know that the way he was treating me, wasn’t “love”.

Anyhoo, thanks to his leaving me, I was forced to become strong, to become self-aware, and to become self-loving.

For it’s in the act of self-loving, that a person becomes whole.

When you’re a whole person, you don’t need a “better half” (or even an “other half”) to complete you. You are self-sufficient, your own best friend, and a magnet to other healthy, balanced and complete people.

Goddess, if you are in a painful space right now, I wish you an easy transition to the next stage in your life.

With love,
Anita Revel

How are you being gentle to yourself today?

Blissed be! ❤ Anita Revel
