TRANCE CHANNELING QUAN YIN
Bringing in Quan Yin
Having just completed DivaMystique, a private women's retreat in Simi Valley, CA, I wanted to share my experience trance channeling Quan Yin.
Trance Channeling (also referred to as Trance Mediumship) is when a person, the Trance Channel, lets his or her conscious self step aside, or in some cases leave the body as in an out-of-body experience or a dream, allowing an entity from any one of various sources to then project its consciousness in such a way that the Trance Channel's body responds. This usually will involve speech and some level of movement by the body.
"I think it [Trance Mediumship] more important than perhaps anyone present can understand".
~ Abraham Lincoln, 1861
Quan Yin is one of the most universally beloved of deities in the Buddhist tradition. Also known as Kuan Yin, Quan'Am (Vietnam), Kannon (Japan), and Kanin (Bali), She is the embodiment of compassionate loving kindness. As the Bodhisattva of Compassion, She hears the cries of all beings. Quan Yin enjoys a strong resonance with the Christian Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and the Tibetan goddess Tara.
Hosting Her energy in my body is the most magnificent and radiant feeling imaginable. She is soft, yet so powerful. I feel the residual energy for days afterward and actually recognize a bit of Her energy lingers indefinitely.
In my most recent trance channeling experience, Quan Yin had information for some of the women present at the retreat. Among references She offered were about specific injuries and how to best look after the body, advice regarding an “expired” relationship, insight into lost physical hearing, how to radiate brightly and not “dummy down” and support for an energetically prolific writer. Quan Yin also gently balanced the chakras of each woman present.
In many images She is depicted carrying the pearls of illumination. Often Quan Yin is shown pouring a stream of healing water, the "Water of Life," from a small vase. With this water devotees and all living things are blessed with physical and spiritual peace. She holds a sheaf of ripe rice or a bowl of rice seed as a metaphor for fertility and sustenance. The dragon, an ancient symbol for high spirituality, wisdom, strength, and divine powers of transformation, is a common motif found in combination with the Goddess of Mercy.
Her cupped hands often form the Yoni Mudra, symbolizing the womb as the door for entry to this world through the universal female principle.
Quan Yin, as a true Enlightened One, or Bodhisattva, vowed to remain in the earthly realms and not enter the heavenly worlds until all other living things have completed their own enlightenment and thus become liberated from the pain-filled cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.
There are numerous legends that recount the miracles which Quan Yin performs to help those who call on Her. Like Artemis, She is a virgin Goddess who protects women, offers them a religious life as an alternative to marriage, and grants children to those who desire them.
The Goddess of Mercy is unique among the heavenly hierarchy in that She is so utterly free from pride or vengefulness that She remains reluctant to punish even those to whom a severe lesson might be appropriate. Individuals who could be sentenced to dreadful penance in other systems can attain rebirth and renewal by simply calling upon Her graces with utter and absolute sincerity. It is said that, even for one kneeling beneath the executioner's sword already raised to strike, a single heartfelt cry to Bodhisattva Quan Yin will cause the blade to fall shattered to the ground.
The many stories and anecdotes featuring this Goddess serve to convey the idea of an enlightened being who embodies the attributes of an all pervasive, all consuming, unwavering loving compassion and who is accessible to everyone. Quan Yin counsels us by Her actions to cultivate within ourselves those particular refined qualities that all beings are said to naturally possess in some vestigial form.
Contemplating the Goddess of Mercy involves little dogma or ritual. The simplicity of this gentle being and Her standards tends to lead Her devotees towards becoming more compassionate and loving themselves. A deep sense of service to all fellow beings naturally follows any devotion to the Goddess.
From such an easy and comfortable way of thinking the world slowly and inevitably becomes a better place.
