Yin's Gentle Embrace ReikiTM
A Year and a Day of
Contemplation with Kuan Yin
Kuan Yin's Gentle Embrace
When my Mother passed
from this world, Kuan Yin, wrapped me in her loving arms and has given
me peace, through the years. My hopes are that
everyone in the world know Reiki and have it in their lives.
This is not a utopian vision that instantly creates a world of
complete harmony and total peace. Yet having Reiki allows greater
peace and harmony to flow. Over time the healing of the worlds
ills will be accomplished and, with Reiki in the hands of everyone,
that day will come much more quickly.
Reiki is a
wonderful gift which can be shared between us all.
this vision each new teacher of Reiki increases the rate at which Reiki
spreads. The growth is exponential as more people teach and
spread this gift. It is like a flame being passed from person to
person, lighting a light within each person it touches. Like
lighting a candle, the flame is not diminished by lighting more
candles, instead there is more light.
I ask and
as Reiki is spread that the truth be given clearly and completely.
It does not do to smudge up Reiki with inappropriate extra
Kuan Yin is
an emissary of compassion. She is one of four great Bodhisattvas or
enlightened beings that watch over the earth. She is also called
Avalokiteshvara and in Japan she is called Kannon. The embodiment of
Mahakaruna, or great compassion, she is highly venerated in Buddhism
and is ready to help all those who pray to her or attune to her healing
energies, which continually emanate from her. While she has been
depicted as male, in more recent times and especially by Taoist and
Tantric sources she has been seen as female. In this form she
represents the Goddess or female aspect of the deity. Portrayed
as standing on a lotus blossom and floating in the sky, her purity
remains unstained by the ignorance and confusion of the world, even as
she reaches out to help. Filled with the greatest beauty and grace, her
reality is that all beings are one and deserve to be free. Because of
this she is ready without reservation to extend peace, joy, love and
every divinely good thing to anyone who contacts to her.
This has occurred during the
attunements, or while giving or receiving treatments or while
meditating. These experiences can be inspirational as well as
healing. Because this happens frequently and the healing energies
are so strong, many feel that this compassion comes from Kuan Yin and
the other Bodhisattvas.
We live in a wonderful time when
ancient wisdom is combining with modern methods to spread spiritual
practices all over the world. Millions of people practice Reiki
now and the numbers continue to grow. This is having a powerful
effect on our spiritual lives and helping to heal the planet. As
the pace quickens, world peace becomes possible. Let us use the
healing power that comes to us now to heal ourselves and help
others. May you always walk in peace.
Reiki is Light and Harmony
within and through all planes of being/reality. Origins of hands-on
healing practices go back to the beginnings of spiritual culture,
across most traditions: Egypt, India, Greece, America...
Present lines of Reiki teachings
as they are imparted in the West come, although somewhat transformed,
from Japan, thanks to Mikao Usui Sensei.
Reiki teachings are continuously
expanding, bringing wellbeing and awareness of spiritual power over
mind and matter to millions of people across the whole planet.
Essential Reiki is the particular
development of Reiki Master Diane Stein. This is a vibrational tool
that releases from all unconscious blockages.
Here we introduce a Reiki Lineage that is generated and protected by
Kuan-yin, Boddhisattva of Compassion and Mercy, She who blesses
motherhood, children and women in general, empowering female energy
everywhere within humankind, but no less She who attends and saves all
beings without exception, hearing first their cries, prayers and
transfers Her boundless blessings through the Light of this Reiki
conduct. This Lineage initiations, originated implicitly from Essential
Reiki, now carry explicitly the empowerment of Kuan-yin
herself, which gives rise to Her unlimited energy of compassionate love
within each recipient, to be expanded by he or she through the world.
Kuan-yin inspired Diane Stein
along her many healing and teaching activities, and also through her
written texts. Kuan-yin kept Her blessing across each link of Essential
Reiki lineage. Carolyn Ford. Taylor, as a direct initiate of Diane
Stein, transmits Kuan-yin energies through Essential Reiki as well.
I have received the gift of
heart-consciousness of Kuan-yin as the primal guide-force of this Reiki
transmission, once received the revelation of her ancestral yidam
and innermost being-essence in Kuan-yin.

following is an excerpt from A Year and A Day of Kuan Yin:
Kuan Yin glides through the clouds riding on a dragon. The
dragon's head symbolizes her magickal powers, which help her to free
people from suffering. Her hands are lifted to protect against evil
In Chinese culture, the dragon is a lucky animal. In
fact, it is the king of the animals and represents wisdom, strength,
transformation and deep spirituality. Like
Kuan Yin, the dragon can be in the sky, in the water, and on earth,
transforming as required and undetected in the world
We too, share some of this ability to transform: for
example, we change into the appropriate attire for our professions or
for social occasions. This principle of
self-transformation applies to our mental and emotional lives as well.
In certain situations, we may change internally into unconscious and
weak being, allowing ourselves to be trapped, forgetting that we in
fact are powerful dragons.

and gives the person hugged an emotional boost.
You need four hugs a day for survival, eight for maintenance, and
twelve for growth.
A hug makes you feel good.
The skin is the largest organ we have and it needs a great deal of
A hug can cover a lot of skin and gives the message that you care.
It is also a form of communication.
It can say things you don't have words for.
The nicest thing about a hug is that you usually can't give one without
a friend or loved one with cancer or other serious disease? Please send
their name and e-mail address to the following address to receive a hug
and have their name placed on our Cancer Ministries Prayer list.
