Opening to the Lotus Heart
Published April 2014
Sedona Journal of Emergence
The vision I see is of a peaceful pond, and interspersed on the pond are lily pads interconnected by vines and leaves, the lily’s lay still on the water unopened. Enveloping the pond is a soft pink mist, that swirls and floats over the pond and the lilies begin to open, their beauty unfolding gently and slowly. Emerging from the mist is Quan Yin she is dressed in a beautiful pale pink kimono the palms of her hands are extended and cupped in her hands she holds a beautiful lotus flower, as she extends this flower to each of you the flower opens slowly with grace and beauty she invites you to breathe the energy of the lotus to your heart.
Quan Yin Speaks:
Welcome my dear ones! I bring you the gift of the lotus flower, this flower comes to fruition by emerging from the depths of the Mother Earth, from the dark void, the womb of the Mother, she makes her way to the light, and when the time is right she blooms her multi layered petals absorbing and reaching to the light. The beauty that unfolds from this transformation is a miracle to behold.
I come forth with these images, to remind you that each of you materialized from the void, the dark womb of the Mother Earth, your bodies are made from star dust as are the rocks, trees, and water that created your planet. Into the vessel of your body your spirit was born, spilling into your physique with your first breathe. Your breath connects you to the breath of the Divine, as you breathe in you are given the gift of love and as you exhale you are given the opportunity to release. This dance of the breath connects you to the rhythm of the Mother Earth and ignites the divinity within.
Your Breathe connects you to the Divine:
The connection to your breath helps you to remember your place in the grand design and gives you the courage to be the best expression of who you intended to be.
To celebrate the role you play in this life as a teacher, painter, singer, mother, father, sister or brother, I encourage you to allow the remembering to unfold in a gentle and peaceful way, like the opening of a lotus flower. Choose which pathway will support your transformation to your highest truth, love and light. It may be yoga, meditation, walking on your Mother Earth, time with your pets, your children. There are many pathways to opening your heart to the grand divine and remember your connection to it.
Each step you take on earth is an opportunity for the experience of being human to be recorded and brought back to your soul. Your soul is the great accumulator of experiences; it remembers every thought, word, and deed you have on your earthly journey. All of your involvements on earth are important I ask you to not judge yourselves harshly; each experience is an opportunity to learn. Allow the learning to come from the experience and release the hurt, doubt, and guilt, judgement of self or others does not serve your journey. Remember there is no judgement on this side of the veil we offer you only compassion and love
Open your Heart to compassion and love:
I ask you to embrace unconditional love and compassion for yourself this will allow you to make the journey from the mud and void just like the lotus flower, you will find your way to the light. The opening of the lotus flower is the opening of your heart and with this open heart the beauty of the life experience can be celebrated and enjoyed. You are meant to enjoy the experience of being in human form, it is a privilege not given to all who reside in the universe. The experience of the five senses which occurs while you are in physical form must be honored. Your capacity to see, taste, hear, touch, and smell, is only possible while you are in human form and this can provide you with wonder and delight, I ask you to cherish your opportunity to be human.You are infinite beings with infinite capabilities one of which is to create the human experience and live the dream unfolding upon the earth.
The vision of the inter connection of the lotus flowers to one other on the pond, is deliberate as each of you are connected to each other on the earth and as one of you opens her heart to the light you create a light vibration that encourages the next human to do the same. What you desire for the collective you must first embrace for yourself. The lotus resting on the calm waters is intentional taking time for stillness and contemplation is food for your soul.
We are all one:
We are all one as above so below and as you unfold your heart center you allow for an expanded awareness for your personal journey, which supports the collective. I take you back to the vision of the pond, the beauty of one lotus flower opening is a striking vision, but a whole pond covered in open lilies is spectacular.
We see the transformations on earth, as your heart opens it connects to the open heart of your neighbour and slowly each heart is open and the energy and love that is generated from this is a dream is brilliant. Your transformations are noticed, applauded and encouraged as you transmute you create a vortex in the universe of love and joy.
As I leave you this day I ask you to close your eyes and place your open palms on your heart, and breathe in the love and light from the lotus flower I offer you this day, this flower is captured light infused with the highest compassion and love.
I am Quan Yin Goddess of Mercy and Compassion.
