Guan Yin is a Bodhisattva, known for her compassionate nature. Her heart is pure & unconditional. As a human being she chose the path of enlightenment & through her dedication awakened an Unadulterated Heart. She perceives the cries from the human world & vows to help to free mankind from suffering & guide them towards paradise.
The symbols she holds offer us guidance. The Yin Yang symbol represents the perfect balance between the masculine & feminine energies, which when fused together creates the whole. The Blue Pearl of Wisdom will be created when this balance is achieved inwardly in our hearts & minds, through our own efforts. The Blue Pearl is associated with the activated pineal gland, which effects our perception of the world, our reality view.
The oyster creates a luminous pearl from the irritants (dirt, sand) that enter its’ closed shell & Guan Yin is showing us that we too have this powerful transformational ability! We too can create a new reality by learning to embrace suffering from who we truly are. When we can feel who we are then we can consciously start to purify our own hearts & heal.
Guan Yin’s shell is open as she is now protected by her unadulterated heart. She has learnt how to master the emotional tides, she has created the riches within her own heart & mind; the Pearl of wisdom & power. The pearl will lead us towards our own Divinity. By awakening our own unconditional heart nature we can move to remembering the Christ within us.
Guan Yin will meet a sincere heart that is in despair & help it to experience its own unadulterated heart.
