Notes on a Goddess :
One of my all time favourite Goddesses is Kuan Yin.
I added a note about her in the grandmother/grandfather stone ritual I posted about earlier, the 'Stone Assisted Soul Retrieval”.
She/They stand for non-binary energy and is the Chinese Buddhist bodhisattva for compassion.
Her power is about RADICAL abundance and healing.
She/They bring space for huge amounts of it - an amazing goddess to befriend, especially for constellating healing practices and upgrading your matrix.
Whoever has the opinion that compassion and kindness are soft or wishy-washy terms …. think again. They are intentional decisions.
This is one fierce individual who rides a fire dragon through an unruly sea. And she ain’t stopping for nothing.
Originating from Eastern Buddhist Avalokiteśvara, both figures' strength lies in “noticing, beholding and observing”. In Japan she is called Kannon.
As the Bodhisattva of listening and hearing the cries of the world, She/They is the knowing witness most of us look for when we cannot carry our own wounds.
In Tarot she would be known as The Angel of Temperance, because she focuses on balance, holding dual realities,
She is embodiment of the Non-Dual as also is known as The Triple Goddess.
She is associated with Taoist and Tantric sources.
This is what she had to say (as channeled through Lena Lees):
“Everyone creates realities based on their own personal beliefs. These beliefs are so powerful that they can create [expansive or entrapping] realities over and over.”
