Modern Day Kuan Yin’s Message
I see you,
inside and out.
I am with you
after the fall.
I know you
from before you knew yourself.
I heal you
because I can sustain my knowing
of your “good” and “evil.”
I can help you heal yourself
by understanding what you are experiencing,
by understanding who you are,
by knowing what you’re capable of,
which would astound you if you knew.

I am always available to you.
I am always caring for you.
I am always loving you and helping you
recognize how to love yourself and all others more
through my doorway of total nurturance and compassion
that helps you weave your Life Stream
with greater Grace and Harmony with All.

Kuan Yin, known as the Chinese Goddess of Compassion or “She Who Hears the Cries of the World,” has played a major role in my spiritual awakening and personal healing, and is a constant presence in my healing work with others. She is known for helping to bring about “everyday miracles,” rather than the “out-of-the-blue” kind, and is typically depicted with much flowing grace and softness.

 
In painting Kuan Yin’s image, I used lots of glazing medium relative to the actual amount of paint, another new experience for me. The semi-transparent layers of color create a pearly, inner glow, matching my experience of her energy.

 
Because her image is clearly not Oriental, and with our present-day cultures becoming more and more of a melting pot, she’s entitled Modern Day Kuan Yin. She hangs in the healing room of my home, where clients often remark on her comforting, gentle presence.

Modern Day Kuan Yin: Goddess of the Week

Modern Day Kuan Yin is the first Goddess Painting I felt consciously guided to create, and my first on re-used wood. I’d been feeling somewhat stuck in my painting life. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to create, and I was uncomfortable investing in the relatively high price and low quality of the pre-made canvases available to me locally, (and even more uncomfortable with the quality level I’d produce if I made my own!) I had always admired the way paintings on wood had a certain glow, and I wanted to create this too. In discussing my stymied creativity with a local life coach, I realized my upcoming kitchen renovation would give me plenty of wooden kitchen cabinet doors, free of charge! And so it began.

Freed of any self-created pressure to produce something “good,” I had a dim awareness of an image come to me. This was a first, for I had always painted either something in front of me or in a “discover-it-as-you-go” way, without any specific end result in mind. And the image came with a clear, specific sense of an energy quite familiar to me—that of Kuan Yin.
