Kuan Yin

kuan yin statue and blue sky“Bodhisattva” literally means “enlightened being”; a soul who, through compassion and altruism, has earned the right to leave this world of suffering and enter Nirvana (Paradise) but has chosen instead to stay on Earth to instruct others until all beings are enlightened.

Kuan Yin (Quan Yin or Kwan Yin) is known as one of the “four great Bodhisattva” of Buddhism and is adored throughout Asia as the Divine Mother we all long for: merciful, tender, compassionate, loving, protecting, caring, healing and wise. Along with Buddhism, Kuan Yin’s veneration was introduced into China as early as the 1St century CE and reached Japan by way of Korea soon after Buddhism was first introduced into that country in the mid-7th century.

She is “Mother Mary” in a white flowing robe usually wearing necklaces of Indian/Chinese royalty. Often she will be depicted holding the pearls of illumination. She may be carrying (The Lotus Sutra which refers back to her origins) or a water jar which symbolizes her pouring compassion onto the world. Other times, she might be holding a willow branch that is a symbol of being able to bend (or adapt) but not break or a sheaf of ripe rice or a bowl of rice seed as a metaphor for fertility and sustenance. She is often depicted as seated or standing on a lotus blossom which is one of the main symbols of Buddhist purity, since it is a beautiful flower that grows out of mud. The meaning is that our hearts should be pure like the lotus flower, even though our lives might be surrounded by dirty or impure people and situations.

Kuan Yin is actively worshipped by a vast following in the Far East –Taiwan, Japan, Korea and China, but there is also an implicit trust in Kuan Yin’s saving grace and healing powers in the West as well. She is the protector of women, sailors, merchants, craftsmen and those under criminal prosecution, and is invoked particularly by those desiring progeny. The “Kuan Yin Sutra” (25th chapter of the ancient Lotus Sutra) describes thirteen cases of impending disaster in which the devotee will be rescued if his thoughts dwell on the power of Kuan Yin, but many believe that even the simple recitation of her name will bring her instantly to the scene.

Kuan Yin’s goal is to liberate all beings from suffering, no matter who or what they are, and thus building a relationship with her involves little. There is no required ritual or dogma, merely an emulation of her virtues in your own life. These affirmations may be helpful:

– I forgive
– I radiate love
– I am tolerant of everyone around me
– I have great joy, and therefore great energy
– My peace is shared peace
– I am weightless and free of burden

Kuan Yin’s birthday is celebrated on the 19th day of the 2nd, 6th and 9th moons (count 19 days including the day of the new moon in these three months). A propitious mantra to repeat especially on these days is “I have compassion for myself and others every day of my life.”

The acknowledgement of Kuan Yin can help you release factors that inhibit you and prevent you from connecting with others; melt those walls of ice around your heart; forgive the person whom you feel has committed a grievance against you; open your heart and radiate love so that love can come back to you; and may even bring to you the child you so desire.

Kuan Yin Legends

There are many legends surrounding Kuan Yin. One story describes Kuan Yin as the daughter of a cruel father who wanted her to marry a wealthy but uncaring man. She is known as Miao Shan and her father’s realm Sumatra. Miao begged to be able to enter a temple and become a nun instead. Her father allowed her to work in the temple but asked the monks to give her very hard chores in order to discourage hr. The monks forced Kuan Yin to work all day and all night while others slept in order to finish her work. However, she was such a good person that the animals living around the temple began to help her with her chores. Her father, seeing this, became so frustrated that he attempted to burn down the temple. Miao Shan put out the fire with her bare hands and suffered no burns. Now struck with fear, her father ordered her to be put to death. After she died, she began the journey to heaven but as she was about to cross over into heaven, she heard a cry of suffering back on earth. She asked to be sent back and vowed to stay until all suffering had ended.

There are those who believe that Mother Theresa is the most recent embodiment of Kuan Yin.

Could There Be A Place in Arizona Even More Spiritual Than Sedona ?

Anita thinks there is. That place is Lake Powell. I have been going there for twenty years. Each time has been an amazing new adventure. I had my second out of body experience at Rainbow Bridge. I was transported to the top of the bridge and greeted by a Native American Chief, who told me I would be bringing many seekers here.

September is certainly the best time of year in Lake Powell. The tourists have left and the water is still warm. Hike, camp, fish and let’s not forget waterskiing. I personally don’t do any of those. I am here to connect with spirit and to seek my own slice of heaven. The desert is full of life and they say to catch a trout is a lucky omen.

Our boat is a Bravada Yacht, which was designed to meet the unique and discerning requirements of today’s Lake Powell boater. It provides more style and luxury than any boat on the lake. It’s deluxe Queen cabins and state of the art kitchen facilities are first class. We are fully stocked with all the comforts of home.

Lake Powell has more shoreline than the state of California and features 96 stunning side canyons that are all worthy of exploration. Get out and hike a canyon. You’ll be rewarded with the amazing scenery and surprises around every corner–wildlife, cool shaded pools and maybe some ruins or petroglyphs.

The high lite of your trip will be your connection to the amazing spirit energy that engulfs your senses and gives you a brief look of what lies beyond our earth plane. Come join us for an experience you will never forget. You’ll be enriched, enlightened and inspired.

Namaste day, Anita D.

Vortex Rocks Of Sedona

TowerTo explain the energy of The Vortex, you really have to think outside the box. There are books that explain the Scientific explanations such as,  the Ley lines of the earth cross and form a funnel of energy coming out of the earth. Rocks found at these spots seem to retain that energy.

Stones are a gift from the earth. They exist everywhere in Nature adding their color and beauty.  They have a way of appealing to people and sometimes it feels like they’re saying “pic me up.” I watch my 18 month old grand daughter squeal with glee as she pics up rocks in my store and even in the parking lot.

Millions of years ago ago layers of sandstone and limestone were formed by a receding ocean. Iron oxide eventually covered the grains and in a natural process rust formed. These are the beautiful rocks that make up Sedona.

RedRocks-03

Spiritual energy flows like thermal wind currents. You can see how this swirling energy twists the tree trunks at the Vortex sites. Those of us who are sensitive to  that energy will feel it more than others. That’s why Sedona attracts so many psychics and artists.

RedRocks-01

We have an sensitive artist person here in Sedona , who goes to the Vortices and collects the special energy stones. He then enhances them with interesting carvings and makes some into cairns. Prices range around $10 for a small piece you can hold in your hand,  Carins (the way showers) are $12-$15. There are some much larger pieces for $40.   Call our store for more information. 928-282-7220.

Pushing Yourself Too Hard Lately

ARAGONITE-300You might need ARAGONITE.  This beautiful “sputnik shaped crystal is a sparkling copper color much like the rocks of Sedona. It’s a very reliable grounding stone attuned to the Earth Goddess. It has the ability to center and ground physical energies. It’s very useful in times of stress.

Aragonite stabilizes the base and earth chakras. It can teach you patience and facilitates delegating and a pragmatic approach to life.  It helps one to concentrate on the matter at hand and gives insight into the causes of problems and situations. It calms the emotional body and combats anger and emotional stress. Good for meditation it helps raise your vibration to a high spiritual level.

Aragonite brings warm energy into the body and treats cold and chills. It also aids in calcium absorption. It’s useful for healing bones.  It can restore elasticity to discs. While it helps strengthen the immune system, it also helps regulate processes that are happening too fast.

It’s a great stone for holding in the hand for comfort. It can be placed over areas of the body needing healing. Place under your pillow to combat restlessness at night. It can come in other colors such as white, yellow and gold. I find the copper color to be the most attractive.
ARAGONITE-558
The Center has a small selection of ARAGONITE. Pieces range from as little as $15 to a large chunk for $135. Call Annie at 928-282-7220 or send us an Email.

Keeping Your Energy Up

Angelic Message of the Week

Many spiritual persons are telling me that they are experiencing unusual fatigue of late.  I asked the angels about this and was told that there are two reasons for that.

One is that persons on a spiritual path are experiencing a rising in their vibrations.  This is necessary both to continue moving forward, and to survive on a planet whose vibrations are also rising.   Allow yourself to nap if you need it, and can do so.  Go to bed earlier, to ensure your body gets the extra rest it needs right now.

The other reason for this fatigue is the increase in dark energy attacks on persons of light.  Just as there are people who are light and good, there are people who are dark and have turned their back to good.  They will be attracted to your light, and will want to affect you in a negative way so you cannot help others the way your heart wants to.  Again, extra rest will go a long way to helping you.

The angels say that if your fatigue continues, see a healer to assist you with getting your energy back.  This is a temporary situation and there is light at the end of the tunnel.

Living More Simply

Angelic Message of the Week

Do not be afraid to pare down your life.  The angels say that this pertains to possessions, expenses, and time commitments.  This is not the time to continue pursuing more, just to have more.  Pull yourself out of that old way of thinking and enter this current time of living more simply.

This need not be a chore.  Take this process one step at a time.  Make this sacred time where you are consciously putting your life in order by eliminating all that is unnecessary and leaving only that which regularly serves you in a positive way.

Donate or sell things you don’t, or can’t, use.  Cancel services that are not critical to your life.  The angels say that this portion of the clearing will help you free up more money, giving you greater peace of mind.  Lastly, refrain from committing your most precious resource, time, when you really don’t want to.  This is the time to create a more simple, less stressful life so you can move forward spiritually.

Not One Moment Was Wasted

Angelic Message of the Week

Occasionally you think back on your life and choices you made. You feel like you “lost” some years, or “wasted” your time. In reality, not one moment of your life was wasted.

Every choice, every experience was crucial to getting you to where you are now. Without one of those experiences, you could not be the person you have evolved to become.

Even the most negative times in life happen for a reason. You learned lessons; sometimes really big lessons. Reflect upon what you have learned in life. These lessons are the key to moving ahead more smoothly and with more confidence.

Trust your intuition and understand that you will make the choices necessary for you to continue growing. The angels repeat the words, “Trust yourself.”

Portals

PortalsThrough the Looking Glass, Narnia Chronicles, Brigadoon share a common theme. “Portals, inter-dimensional doorways, two-way tunnels, curtains of light” are a recurring concept in our cultural tradition allowing for travel between worlds and a means of transcending time and space.

Caves have long figured in folklore as entryways to other worlds – worlds of spirit beings, of different lands and different times. Not only caves, but cracks and fissures in boulders were thought to be entryways to the supernatural and of course, mountains have often been regarded as portals to the abode of spirits and the sites of sacred revelations.

Rocks themselves have often been perceived to be entryways to the otherworld. Spirit helpers of Native American shamans live in the stone and freely pass between both worlds.

“One day a woman found a great, reddish slab of stone on the bank of the creek. It shone most wonderfully. How happy she would be if she could rub the very same color on her own body! So she searched and found a rough stone which she used to scrub the stone slab until there was a little pile of red powder. She mixed some water with the powder. Then she colored her body with the shinning red. Standing there so beautifully painted she began to sing for joy. And as she sang, the stone slab on which she stood opened and swallowed her up. Even today, on passing this stone, one can still hear the song of the enchanted woman.”

The very word enchanted speaks of the stone. She was swallowed up but not harmed. She was taken through the portal into the world of spirit and Faery – a nice fairytale, but consider this. Sedona, Arizona is famous for its red rocks and fairytale appearance. Metaphysical Mecca that it is, Sedona boasts many strange and wonderful sites in the “red rocks.” Vortexes, ley lines (lines of cosmic energy in the Earth), spiritual energy enhanced by the natural Feng Shui of the monoliths and mesas, are all found in Sedona. So too is Sedona an area of portals, a doorway to another time or place, where the time/space continuum falls back on itself and leaves an opening that can transport entities or humans from one reality to another.

Some people say they can travel physically through portals, but most of those who visit the portals in Sedona move within their minds, as in a meditation. This is commonly known as an out-of-body experience as they project their consciousness into an astral realm. Think of our reality as a grid pattern of electro-magnetic energy, layered like a cake to create the world we see and touch. A disruption in this grid, like cutting the cake with a knife, allows one to move through and between the “layers” to another realm of existence. Portals exist where ley lines intersect and where planetary grid points open and close in a fairly constant state of change. (Stonehenge, pyramids in Egypt and Mexico and Machu Picchu are other examples of well known portals – sacred places built on ley lines.)

There is an awareness that entities exist beyond our third dimensional existence, and that it is possible that there is movement between dimensions at portals. The third dimension vibratory rate is relatively slow. When one is transported to another dimension where there is no time, nor space, the soul level existence speeds up to experience thoughts, ideas, places and other entities at a faster frequency. It is there where we gain access to information of higher knowledge. Most commonly, this is the dimension of dream time, meditation or open channels, a state of consciousness readily achieved at Sedona’s portals. These doorways may hold many wonders. It is really up to each of us to boldly step forward into the unknown and grasp what may be our own magical, mystical, wondrous truths.

Visiting a portal: One can awaken to a higher consciousness that reality is about to shift to a new and higher frequency, resulting in healing oneself, healing others, and awakening to one’s own life purpose.

The big question is, “Just where are these portals?” The first clue is to look for UFO sightings as space craft will often move in and out of our third-dimension reality through inter-dimensional openings. UFO sightings are common in Sedona at Bell Rock, Courthouse Rock, and the Secret Canyon areas. More evidence of portals: seeing unusual lights such as orbs or rainbows that look out of place. Finding orbs dancing upon the waters at Cathedral Rock or North Fork vortexes are a common sight for many tourists. Ancient ruins where temperature shifts are felt abruptly such as the Boynton Canyon vortex or the Honanki/Palaki Ruins are other portal spots in Sedona.

Portals can be found by dowsing with L-Rods or pendulums.

Just as many are drawn to sacred sites, people are drawn to Sedona for the metaphysical energies. Many are looking for information about their life’s path, the feeling they are being called “on a mission” or to heal physically or emotionally. The Center for the New Age has over 15 professional psychics, Tarot readers, mediums, body workers and Vortex tour leaders who can assist you on your spiritual quest and inner transformation.

Just the way it is

Sedona Vortex Energy TourSedona Vortex Energy Tours

We can play in the midst of the beauty of the Red Rocks each day and sometimes we will still miss our purpose. It takes moments in time to reflect and appreciate all that we have and all that we are which transcends us to a higher understanding of why we are here as individuals.

Sometimes we put too much pressure on ourselves when we try to seek answers and we find we are stressed in the simple tasks of the day while missing the more important aspects of our being. We are human beings being human. We are small parts of the whole. We are one of billions. We are unique, yet exceptionally similar. We are alive.

The ego can sometimes make us forget that often things are just the way they are, and that we didn’t manifest it with some super natural power. When we fail to see the truth behind the vail of reality, we become lost in our own selfishness and our minds get cluttered with so-called success.

It is time to pull down the vail and to see what is the truth. It is time to measure our success by how many lives we have touched in positive ways with acts of kindness and in the interest of humanity. It is time to bring to light the purpose of our being human. And that, my friends, is just the way it is.

Bringing joy to your life for just a few hours,

SVET Team
