When you make a decision to move your life in a different direction, it is not easy to find your compass. All you know is what you do not want, and the decisions you make under those circumstances are always based on what you already know. Kristin K. found the courage to make geographical and spiritual changes. Some alterations were indeed based on the known. Other choices were guided by a willingness to suspend judgment and trust the unknown.
She made sure of it.
Besieged by a series of very difficult life circumstances that culminated in a house fire, the young woman began to seek radical change. Backed by the financial security of a job she loves, her first decision was to move away from the town and the relationships she felt stifled by and that continued to engender suffering.
Along with various new experiences geared to make changes in her lifestyle, Kristin decided to take the Painting from the Heart Classes I offered, and when it was time to sell the old house, she ordered a Door Protector even before she moved to her new digs. She stated that faced with the many unknowns, she was confident that the sacred art I was to create would help her feel supported.
The painting classes revealed untapped artistic talent and provided reassurance when trusting her intuition. She enjoyed playing with new materials, successfully dealt with frustration and created unexpectedly beautiful paintings that she was pleased to hang in her new space.
Soon after we installed the Door Protector, Kristin stated that she now feels safer, was inspired to make room for an art studio and started to meet people whom she felt were kindred spirits. She also made positive changes in her activity levels, adding variety, emphasizing exploration and dedicated time for reflection.
The artwork I created for Kristin reflects her deep desire to heal negative past karma and end the suffering caused by incorrect perceptions. As I chanted the mantra and painted, I felt that she was ready for an entirely new vision.
Looking at the left side of the painting, the red colored section implies fire that burns and transforms. It is balanced on the right, by the splashing waves of a blue ocean ready to cleanse and purify the soul.
The Ancient Chinese coins on the fire side are a symbol for the solidity and abundance of heaven and earth, offering the wealth of lessons learned, while the gold mirrors on the water side provide sources for wisdom and reflection upon which to build a new life.
The bottom center is dominated by a beautiful Seraphinite crystal; one of the premier healing stones, emphasizing that healing must occur at the cellular level, in order to allow old patterns of imbalance to be flushed away and new patterns of radiant health to be formed.
A bright double rainbow emerges from the purifying and regenerating effects of fire and water, implying that today’s troubles will come to pass, if one holds strong to one’s vision. The pure light will illuminate the path to awakening and to a life filled with blessings and abundance at all levels.
A tear-drop Bloodstone, the consummate heart healer, points directly to the Ancient Wish Granting Jewel mantra, and is supported on the back of the painting by the Negative Karma Cleansing mantra, both written in Tibetan Sanskrit script. See, A Well Built Hut for more information on the mantra and its meaning.
Bloodstone has been recognized since ancient times as the stone of courage and healing. The stone’s green background stands for the heart chakra, while red is the vibrational color of the first chakra, thus the stone instills courage of the heart in the face of difficulties and offers the emotional balance of the first chakra’s connection to the earth.
As all the symbols converge on the mantra, we can observe that it reveals infinity and its field of possibility beyond it.
The Door Protector is thus intended to support its owner in summoning the courage to act upon inner guidance, cut through seemingly insurmountable difficulties and own the power to create a deserved new life.
Kristin K. is happy to share her door protector with those who are attracted to it, through the limited editions canvas prints that I embellish and bless. Go to KristinK Door Protector to purchase yours.
