Connecting with the Immeasurable Love of the Universe


Door Protector to place above door- Dangelbig
Dangelbig Door Protector by Lidia Kenig-Scher

The newest Door Protector was created for a professional couple in their late thirties, whose new home located in a semi-rural town west of Boston I helped designed.

Like all Door Protectors, it started with receiving a written statement from each person, preparing the support and meditating. And while both partners expressed their desire to experience harmony and be aligned with all things, the art did not seem to readily find the images that would invite those sentiments.

I started by doing an intuitive divination, invited some crystal allies and animal spirits and consulted various oracles, yet I was unable to move the art forward for quite a long time.

After the crystals I ordered arrived and the wood panel was ready to accept paint, I began by applying a Prussian blue coat of acrylic paint and when dried, I mixed in different amounts of Titanium white to create a variety of curling swirls that stretched and moved in all directions.  A hot pink hue showed up on the palette and a soft brush helped them merge, twist and blend with the toned blues.

For the next 3 months and in spite of chanting the mantra, eagerly contemplating the canvas and summoning all my guides; nothing else showed up.  As I had similar experiences while creating other Door Protectors, I reached out to the clients several times to inquire if there was anything I should know, if there had ben any arguments, or events that may have caused anxiety, concern and conflict. Upon receiving confirmation, and still nothing was happening, I sent an email to the couple, offering a new way of thinking about the art we were co-creating.

We acknowledged that Lillie (not her real name) was expecting her first child and this was the last trimester of her pregnancy. Fears and doubts became hard to ignore, coupled with the physical symptoms of tiredness, irritability with a very demanding work situation and natural frustrations with the on-going renovations in the new home. The husband, Paul (not his real name) who maintains a strong spiritual practice was also struggling with his own feelings about the impending responsibilities while attempting to reassure Lillie. The email and subsequent phone call finally worked!

The next day, a pure zinc white area appeared where the Wish Granting Jewel mantra is inscribed and was crowned by a bright yellow hue lined with an orange ribbon. A deep red line now supports the hot pink spirals, as if it is keeping the confusion at bay and reassuring the couple that everything would be alright. The reassurance is aided by nuggets of Carnelian within the blue.  This is the crystal of trust, inner resolve and wisdom. It helps dispel background confusion like in the art, while in the foreground, playful Spring grasses sporting tiny blooms daintily reach toward the mantra and the sunlight.

A Lepidolite crystal is crowned by a raw Azurite stone and sits right beneath the syllables corresponding to ushnisha vimale, which translates as the “stainless lotus of Ushnisha.” This is the name of the Buddha in the manifestation of Avalokiteshvara, the Bodhisattva of limitless compassion. The Ushnisha is the oval topknot often depicted in art on top of a Buddha’s head symbolizing the spiritual power of attaining enlightenment. The lilac Lepidolite crystal is an excellent stress relief stone. It contains lithium, which soothes and calms the body/mind continuum, reduces anxiety, stress and signs of depression. It assists in maintaining an attitude of acceptance of the present moment. Azurite is the stone of inner vision and insight, enhances intellectual functions and helps the mind retain information. It confers awareness to discern where we get stuck in outmoded mental constructs and self-deception, as well as alerts us when someone is not acting or speaking truthfully.

Each syllable in the mantra represents core Buddhist teachings that along with the pictorial symbols continuously emit positive and wholesome vibrations into the space where it is installed. As the people who occupy the space connect with the art, their door protector becomes a mirror of their souls and find opportunities to connect with the immeasurable love of the universe; the divine realm. Every time they see or think of their art, they are more able to abide in joy and gratitude, they come to know that everything is sacred, feel at peace and are protected within this love energy.

The more people intentionally gaze at the art they helped create, the more they recognize the interbeingness inherent in all things and begin to experience unconditional love. The art gives people who own it the opportunity to be conscious beings able to learn, grow and change and act and think as the spark of divine light on earth that they actually are.

And everything did turn out all right. A few days ago, a beautiful baby girl was delivered without complications and joined her truly joyous parents. Please join me in wishing that life continue to unfold for this threesome, with myriads of fortunate blessings!

You too can commission your mirror of the soul. Click on Door Protectors for more information on how to order one.

Dancing to the Rites of Spring


SFT Door Protector by Lidia Kenig-Scher

Created for a couple who collects very unique art and live in a home designed by a star architect, this Door Protector was commissioned to assist them in living consciously, freely, creatively, and compassionately. They desire to age gracefully by bringing light and wisdom’s insights into their lives, deepen their relationship and permeate all other relationships and endeavors with such qualities. They hoped that the art would help them nurture and embody their values, assist them in empowering their intuition and inspire them to own and express their creative talents. In fact, the wife said that she was ready to take one of her dream projects to a deeper level.

A new Door Protector begins by gathering the client’s statements and payment along with the pre-selected surface, also known as supports, and then I bring all of it into a deep meditation that is followed by a contemplative focus on the people who commissioned the art. Working with various divination tools, which include cards, crystals and animal spirits I end the session with a silent intuitive reading.  I listen deeply for patterns, meaning and guidance and complete the initial work by purchasing the stones and preparing the surface. Sometimes I must wait for crystals to arrive while the prepared canvas or support sits within my altar, but the blank canvas becomes part of my daily meditation until I am moved to begin painting.

Daily meditation continues, respecting the timing and the process, as I am always attuned to the guidance I receive. I found that when several days go by and nothing shows up on the canvas, I am urged to connect with the client and inquire about their lives so that in facilitating the understanding of a difficult issue, they may help get the images flowing. I talk about aspects of the intuitive reading and invariably, our conversation uncovers events and situations that gripped them. I reassure them that what they are experiencing is part of the process of birthing their Door Protector. I explain that with their thoughts, beliefs and emotions, they are creating the sacred art through me and I invite them to release the resolutions to the higher power that oversees the creation of the piece.

And just as invariably, after the intervention, the images begin to flow on the canvas! By turning their attention on the artwork I am painting for them, the clients and I are co-creating with Spirit.

While working on the Door Protector featured here, and seeing that nothing was showing up for several weeks, I called the client and she confessed that she had been distracted, confused and worried about upcoming pre-planned trips and the impact that one of them, a solo journey, would have in her life. She was also worried about her husband’s health and the outcome of a planned, but potentially difficult surgery.

Alas, our chat seemed to help, because the next day images began to appear on the surface, and within a short time the art was completed and installed, just before the first trip!

Behold the images in the SFT Door Protector, where a magical sun-dappled forest provides the perfect backdrop for the Wish Granting Jewel mantra, appearing to emanate from the sun’s rays and bringing forth the light and wisdom of the ancient syllables.  The trees seem to joyously sway to the sound of Igor Stravinsky’s Rites of Spring, prompting all who behold the art to dance to their authentic rhythms.

Tall peaks rise on the left, in the foreground, with a raw Cuprite crystal embedded in to assist the clients in connecting with the grounding and nourishing earth energies and offering the reassurance that all is well; always.

A Rhodonite stone sits at the bottom near the center to remind the couple of the love they share and teaching them to love and appreciate who they are individually. A mountain path strewn with Aquamarine chips helps them reflect on their resolve, offers calmness and flow and as the road dips into the water, it provides clarity and inspires truth in living, provided that they release outmoded mental constructs and allow in the aid of a higher power.

 

Door Protectors are designed to be installed above a home’s front door, the physical element that provides a clear transition between the outside world and the inner sanctum of a dwelling. Many, many owners of this art report that seeing it upon entering or leaving their space provides everyone, even those who pass under it, with a reassuring sense of safety and well-being. By regularly connecting to their art, owners tell me that they feel at ease at home or within their business. Openness and trust, enables their chosen intentions to manifest in an even better form than anyone could have imagined. They learned that the Universe has their backs and will present them with a broader vision than any human mind could see.

The owners of this Door Protector report that every planned trip unfolded wonderfully, that the woman’s solo trip proved to be more fruitful than she had anticipated and that the husband’s operation was a total success.

Out of the Fog


AB Door Protector by Lidia Kenig-Scher
AB Door Protector by Lidia Kenig-Scher

The gray clouds recede and as the sky clears, brilliant blue hues appear.

The fog vanishes at the edge of the world, unveiling an iridescent gold mandala edged by puffy hearts.

The steady and pulsating energy at the center of the mandala causes additional hearts to be released spreading into the vastness of space and gathering at the top to form a crown.

Like the sun’s corona (crown), the aura of plasma that extends into space and is most easily seen during a total eclipse; this mandala/sun brings forth sudden explosions of pure love from its steady and calm nucleus.

This sun’s explosions are called coronal mass ejections, and in this Door protector, the powerful particles arrange themselves into the Tibetan syllables of the Wish Granting Jewel mantra.

As the mantra unfolds, it releases whimsical beings that joyously dance or happily and confidently perform acrobatics.

The black figures balance a Carnelian crystal on their heads with grace and ease. Carnelian is the stone of inspired action. The other figures hold aloft Citrines, the crystal of success, prosperity and joy. There are no leaders or followers in this group. Each contribute their unique skills and talents and all acknowledge themselves as divine beings capable of bringing peace and harmony to the world.

This Door Protector invites transformation and reassures its owner that the change will be joyous-the funny beings; if he allows the veils of illusion, incorrect perceptions, and conditioning to burn away like fog and be replaced by the bright light of awareness; the mantra’s teachings and the influence of the crystals.

Aaron’s parents own a Door Protector and his father has a print hanging in his very corporate office. So the recent college graduate requested a sacred art for himself to help with transitioning, and to cultivate the necessary frame of mind and attitude to find a clear direction for his life, select work that he loved, encounter prosperity and be surrounded with love.

As I worked on the art, I noticed that at times the colors, textures and shapes flowed easily, while there were periods when it all simply stalled. Toward the end I was surprised when some of the script smeared, and I had to re write it. When I checked in with Aaron*, we realized that the stalled times coincided with periods of doubt and confusion, and that the smears appeared when he feared sliding back into self-destructive behaviors.

When I installed the art Aaron confessed that even though I had mentioned that what I paint comes from him, the “coincidences” caused him to emotionally re-center. He was now able to trust the guidance from a higher power, and recognized the gifts of awareness behind each of his actions.

Aaron knew that his art reflected not only who he was, but who he was committed to evolve, as he matured.  This young man was ready to carry his art as a personal mirror to his summer residence, trusting that if he focused on the mandala’s center when doubts arose, becoming centered in his own “sun” would be easier. And that by contemplating the mantra’s lessons during his daily meditation practice; the path he needs to travel in this lifetime would become clear.  Thereafter, the Door Protector would move with him wherever he went.

The nascent knowingness Aaron was experiencing would spur him to take inspired action and manifest his dreams. And because he embraced his ability to bring groups of people together in harmonious creativity, he would be rewarded with ample examples of grace manifesting in his life.

If you lack clarity, doubt the direction you are traveling in life or engage in addictive behaviors, you may decide to mimic Aaron and commission your own sacred art. You can go to Ordering a Door Protector and read about the differences between originals and prints, make a choice and perhaps read more stories about this sacred art and the people who work and live with them for many years now, elsewhere on this blog.

Be Safe: Stay Grounded, Respect Your Path and Open Your Heart


Linda M Door Protector by Lidia Kenig-Scher
Linda M Door Protector by Lidia Kenig-Scher

The latest Door Protector was installed 2 weeks ago and my client reports seeing significant energy shifts in her life.  The movement actually started as soon as she commissioned it.

A well respected body-centered psychotherapist and much admired singer and song-writer, Linda M. ordered the sacred art as an important relationship was ending. And in creating the intention statement for the art, she was able to quickly see the learning that this relationship had brought her and effectively integrate the experience into her life.

Now she was eager to explore the many new possibilities for growth.

It was not a surprise that in my preliminary divination process I saw Hummingbird as her guiding animal spirit. Those who possess the medicine of this tiny but powerful bird dwell in Joy, can spend quality time in stillness, and are sources of hope and renewal for those who need it. They remain soft, adaptable and trusting knowing that Life loves them.

The card appeared upside down suggesting that although Linda has a strong meditation practice, is a fantastic mentor to musicians and an effective therapist, she may need time to fully embrace her gifts and talents, explore her dreams and commit to follow her intuition, sensing that a greater force is always supporting her.

My job in creating her art was to provide Linda with visual symbols that would help her to lean in, yet step back and admire the wealth of what she already has, while at the same time, remind her to “freely fly among Life’s flowers and partake of their sweet nectar”. This would insure that her heart remains open and that her gifts become a source of joy and abundance for all.

The three crystals that appeared further in the reading and are now on the Door Protector gave me strong guidance.

Cuprite, the triangle at the bottom of the art is a great grounding mineral; affirming that all we need is always provided for when we are rooted in the stillness of the earth and are grateful for all we have.

Charoite is the lilac colored stone in the middle, reinforcing that our skills and talents are in fact what allows us to walk our path of service. This ally’s energy helps us stay on our path and speak our truth.

Rhodonite is the heart’s healer reminding us that it is only by loving ourselves fully, that we can manifest love from others, as well as abundance and well-being for all.

These crystals form the focal point in the transformative cycle of a beautiful starry night into the dawning of a new day. The rising sun is crowned by the Wish Granting Jewel mantra, bestowing its blessings of unconditional love, balance, joy, gratefulness, right thinking, right speech, right concentration, and right action for the benefit of all and embedding these “nectars of truth” on garlands of magnificent flowers streaming through the stones.

When the client consciously connects with the vibrational energy of the symbols; in times of sorrow or pleasure, she will receive the essence of what the art carries: that wherever she is, it is the right path fully supported by benevolent Universal forces, helping her feel safe and protected from harm.

When she looks at her Door Protector installed above her front door, Linda can allow her life to unfold, while feeling whole, powerful and grateful.

The Power to Live a Meaningful Life


Robin Sa Door Protector by Lidia Kenig-Scher
Robin Sa Door Protector by Lidia Kenig-Scher

A full moon lights up the Wish Granting Jewel Mantra spreading gifts of luminous wisdom on an azure sky and scattering new seeds of growth on fertile rolling hills. A raw aquamarine set on a round mirror helps to wash away past hurts with love, understanding and kindness. As the moon recedes in the horizon, it invites a new day to begin.

Brightly colored flowers face forward unabashedly, indicating that spring has sprung on the land.  Some blossoms beam out Lapiz Lazuli chips from their center. A powerful crystal ally of manifestation, Lapiz is associated with royalty, and encourages self-knowledge, truth-speaking and a strong connection with Source.

The copper hills in the foreground promise easy, luxurious and abundant travel to exotic places.

Indeed the owner of this door protector wishes for abundance at all levels, wants to live a meaningful life, sharing her gifts with others, especially about helping people hone in on what gives them joy and making that joy available to the world.  She also wants to have a satisfying relationship with her family, her friends and with her partner, and experience travel for fun, work and spiritual nourishment.

In her initial request, Robin stated that she felt intimately connected with Divine Spirit and was completely open for surprising ways in which her wishes would manifest. She felt that ordering a Door Protector for her new home was in fact, the perfect ally to install as she began to nest.

It didn’t take long for this client to see results. Helpers to assist her in organizing her new place showed up, long-lost friends came for tea and marveled at the sweet energy of the home, while colleagues soon rushed to help her create ancillary materials to promote a new business model. Spending the winter in sunny Puerto Rico, Robin became a requested speaker, secured new clients and opened new ventures for additional work away from home. She also had two very romantic forays exploring exotic faraway places.

What success Robin experienced came about from how she views her door protector. She did not see it as an object that would help her realize her wishes from the outside. From the beginning, this client embraced the notion that what was created for her, actually came from her and could not have been painted without her. In other words, the art became a place where all her intentions are collected.

She embraced the wisdom embodied in the ancient Wish Granting Jewel Mantra to check her intentions as in a mirror. The Sanskrit syllables constantly emit stabilizing, positive reminders on cultivating the right attitude and conduct, walking the path of truth, compassion and right understanding and exerting good efforts, insisting on an unimpeachable livelihood and maintaining mindfulness as an outgrowth of a consistent meditative practice.

Above all, Robin sees her Door Protector as a tangible reminder of her intimate connection with Divine Spirit anchored in her heart. Armed with such intrinsic power, she is certain to live a meaningful life and have all her wishes be fulfilled.

Dwelling in Peace, Love and Fulfillment


Fondulas Door Protector by Lidia Kenig-Scher
Fondulas Door Protector by Lidia Kenig-Scher

I don’t need to tell you that our planet is in distress and so are all who inhabit it. I mentioned it last week. I also don’t have to tell you that living with stress is not living fully or authentically. It is like we walk around with an invisible fence around us, yet one that can be punctured and can collapse at any moment.

We feel unsafe.

Safety was identified by psychologist Abraham Maslow as being the second most important need we must have fulfilled in order to thrive. According to his pyramidal Hierarchy of Needs, when our physiological necessities are taken care of, these form the basis for our ability to perceive ourselves unlikely to be at risk.

When we can get food, water and can breathe and sleep; we feel safe.

When we feel under attack from other people and circumstances, we contract. When we are unsure about our employment, our health insurance, our property and the availability of resources, we live in fear.

This provides a very weak base for the next hierarchy of needs: Love and the sense of Belonging.

Such layer now becomes filled with suspicion and tensions we cannot even see. Total honesty is difficult and our relationships contract. We become needy. We huddle around others we perceive as kindred and hold on to life situations constricting us even more. We unhealthily attach to life, jobs, marriages, friendships, neighborhoods, beliefs and so on.

Thus, the next layer provides a creaky foundation for what Maslow called Esteem, or our ability to feel truly confident about our achievements and happy about other people’s milestones. We cease respecting ourselves, become weary of others and feel powerless. Anger swells and turns into disrespect for those with whom we disagree.

It is easy to see that the top layer, which according to Maslow provides the ground for self-actualization, cannot sustain our desire to live an authentic life. Our moral compass is badly tattered; our creativity suffers, stumped by our lack spontaneity. We have trouble solving simple problems and refuse to accept things as they are.

Prejudice pervades our lives; we lose faith in ourselves and blame others for our lot in life.

I started to create Door Protectors, when I looked at the world we share and saw how many people near and far were unable to fulfill even their basic physiological needs. Flint, Michigan’s cost-cutting measures resulting in lead contaminated drinking water is a perfect example of this.

Frustrated and pondering on being effectively helpful, I looked at a paper placed above my front door containing the Wish Granting Jewel Mantra I received from a beloved Buddhist monk. I noticed that since the Tibetan syllables flanked my entry, I felt more grounded, productive and happier. I also successfully changed my career.

Coincidentally, an out-of-town client requested what she termed “big Feng Shui help” for her new business. Unable to travel to the site, I proposed to create a special art to be placed above the front door. I meditated, chanted the mantra and was guided to write the ancient syllables and surround them with pictorial symbols, like in the art shown above.

The results were to our surprise, outstanding. Within a month, the turnaround in finances, interpersonal relationships and customer feedback were so dramatic that she ordered one for a relative. That was the beginning of the mixed media art I call Door Protectors, which seem to help people create strong layers of fulfilled needs flowing toward self-actualization.

Created in an atmosphere of sacredness, aided by the mantra and guided by an intense focus on the needs and desires of those who commission it, the art affects people in profound ways. The world around them has not changed, but how these art owners perceive it, has indeed changed and from within.

The energy of the paintings also affects those who see it and pass under it, and are strengthened by the owners’ deep connection to the art. As where attention goes, energy follows, it is a win/win exchange. I found a beautiful way to be helpful and blissful. Passing the bliss on to others, we each generate more bliss enabling us to build the strong base under which our authentic selves become fully actualized and…

We can beam bliss to our centers of influence.

I invite you commission your own Door Protector, or order any of the available prints and be on your way to dwelling in peace, love and fulfillment. You can also read more stories on the Blog.

It is Actually a Mirror


MSR Door Protector by Lidia Kenig
MSR Door Protector by Lidia Kenig (c) 2016

After many years of suffering by freely giving her power away, the owner of this door protector now feels empowered, enjoys being in relationship with herself and dwells in peace.

You may say that after a long history of allowing others to opine on her beauty, her talents, her hard-earned skills and her worth, commissioning a door protector simply transfers the power to an inanimate object. You’d be mistaken!

Art may only appear inanimate. Like anything else in the Universe, it consists of frequencies of energy with which we interact, largely unaware, at a core level and, like other frequencies, are constantly moving and changing. This movement is most affected by our consciousness.

Scientists have effectively demonstrated that EVERYTHING is energy vibrating at different levels. Our consciousness which is also vibrational energy, changes and it is changed by the interaction with other vibrations to produce thoughts, feelings and emotions that in turn create powerful frequencies.

Thoughts are real forces!

Depending on their strength, or emotional charge, these energies spin slower and appear solid, or materialize. Our mind is actually “the creator and governor of the realm of matter” wrote Johns Hopkins’ Richard C. Henry in The Mental Universe; Nature 2005.

Buddhism among other philosophies urges us to understand how the mind operates and care for the state of our consciousness. Its teachings focus on mind-fullness, or total awareness of energy; the physical, mental and spiritual space we share with the entire Universe.

When Mary lovingly gazes at her sacred art, she deems it beautiful and feels gratefulness toward me because she thinks that I created it. While the good feelings certainly help both of us, I was able to create her door protector by directing my thoughts in meditation, toward her vibrational frequencies and painted the beauty and gratefulness that are already within her.

Thus each creation is dramatically different, appearing as if several artists painted each resulting visual. Actually, several people did, when with their thoughts, each of those who commissioned a door protector “directed” what I physically painted.

You could say that a door protector is a two-way mirror.

All Door Protectors start with the Wish Granting Jewel Mantra-OM PADMO UNSHISHA VIMALE HUM PHAT.  Each syllable of the ancient mantra constantly emits very particular vibrations of unconditional love, balance, joy, gratefulness, right thinking, right speech, right concentration, and right action for the benefit of all in the household and all who see it or pass under it.

The essence of the protection the art offers is that it broadcasts awareness of what it takes to live a fulfilling life.

Together with the mantra, the images promote conscious connection with the higher self and higher guidance.  Colors, textures, shapes, and crystals become symbols that the art owners can connect with. The more they establish an intentional relationship with the images, the more they notice that the art is a mirror of their true selves and begin to trust that what is in it, is there for their benefit. Thereafter, the wishers are naturally guided to the thoughts and actions needed to manifest what is best for all involved, broadening their sense of self and walking the path of wholeness.

Mary wrote that since she ordered her door protector, her “business is booming bigger than ever”, and her “work is nothing but joy!” As you can see in her art, a sunrise disperses the clouds revealing rolling fertile hills and flowering trees. Mary’s life is flowering because she is looking in the mirror and recognizes who she truly is, a powerful, abundant and peaceful woman!

I hope you all follow Mary’s example, direct your thoughts to commission your own Door Protector and manifest your best wishes! Go to PURCHASE INFO – and browse the Door Protectors Gallery to order a print.

Gliding Toward the Perfect Shore


Stacey Arb Door Protector -LidiaKenig
Stacey Arb Door Protector -LidiaKenig (c)

A Charoite boat, with a black and green Tourmaline boom, a pink Tourmaline mast and mirror sails is calmly aloft on the somewhat choppy waters.

The sailor knows that she is being divinely guided to glide with the rhythms of her heart toward the perfect shore.

The sun above the sails has become the Wish Granting Jewel mantra, while the winds arch in a protective motion against a magnificent pink sky.

As purple confetti showers giddily fall upon her ship, this sailor celebrates her newfound power.

She now knows how to turn off the mind’s noise, embrace the quiet and allow the silence to nourish her body, mind and spirit.

From the bliss of inner calm, life sails on the waters of truth.

Stacey ordered her door protector when her health and the state of her home reflected her inner turmoil. She was not sure what to change first, but knew she was ready for both direction and support.

Faced with a long time waiting for her custom sacred art to be completed, the client decided to order a blessed reproduction as a physical reminder that she was ready for change and indeed she was!

By the time I installed the original, Stacey had regained physical strength, she was in the process of removing decades of accumulated clutter out of the home, and with renewed clarity of mind, was planning for a complete home renovation.

Upon unveiling the art, Stacey was visibly taken by its beauty, and when I told her that the art reflected the beauty of living her truth and once again feeling empowered, I saw tears of gratefulness, joy and love mimicking the showers of confetti on her door protector.

The reproduction art helped her safely move forward on the most prescient issues. The customized original art would assist her, as many door protector owners attest, in uncovering deeper life circumstances and sailing through any storm as if protective winds and loving skies were showering joyful confetti to calm the waters and steady the lifeboat.

Stacey now knows that by working with the energy of her door protector, and embodying its ancient wisdom, she becomes a powerful sailor, sharing her authentic self, her skills and her talents with grace and ease.

I invite you to order your own Door Protector, or purchase blessed reproductions right now.

Go to Door Protectors and begin to glide with the rhythms of your heart toward your perfect shore!

 

Creating the Life She Deserves


KelleyDoorPro-LidiaKenig201
Door Protector Kristin K, by Lidia Kenig

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.

A Chain of Seemingly Insurmountable Mountains


Door Protector HL by Lidia Kenig-Scher
Door Protector HL by Lidia Kenig-Scher

 

Creating a Door Protector for this family was rather easy. I was first invited for a Feng Shui consultation some 10 years before and over the decade, I visited the husband’s workplace, helped the wife to carve a personal space within the home, re-arranged the children’s bedrooms, spiced up the master bedroom, changed the color of the family room and eventually participated in a house and garden major renovation that caused the property to grow from a “Feng Shui nightmare” into a warm and loving environment that supported everyone’s growth.

The husband is a well-recognized and admired business leader, a consultant to powerful organizations and a highly praised published author. The wife is a true renaissance woman. A successful entrepreneur, she is an accomplished ceramic artist who engages her pottery and the vibrational energy of crystal bowls to facilitate healing. This dynamic woman is also a 4-time best-selling author!

A couple of years ago, the family was going through a rough patch and I was called for the “Feng Shui tune up” that led to commissioning the door protector.

The silhouette of a sinuous mountain range with the sun peeking over the gentle yet solid shapes seemed the appropriate metaphor to convey the family’s need for stability and hope. The powerful Wish Granting Wheel Mantra appears to form out of the sunlight blurring the separation between night and day, as if to indicate that in life, darkness and light are equally powerful gifts.

A full moon mirror on one side provides for the crystal clarity born out of introspection. The North Star on the opposite side serves as a source of wisdom and guidance helping the dwellers to always find the best way to move forward in trying times. Mustard seeds are meant to dispel negativity. Placed at the end of the mantra, it implies that if the family follows the principles of ethical living, with kindness and compassion, climbing life’s hills and peaks could turn into gentle gliding journeys.

Door Protector Installed and its Proud Owner

The day we installed the art above the door, one of the sons was convalescing from ACL replacement surgery and experienced a nasty rash on his whole leg that was defying all forms of treatment. After we installed the door protector, they “discovered” a treatment that worked effectively. The daughter had been sick with the flu and by that night, her fever had broken and she was on the road to recovery

Since then, the husband wrote a very influential book aimed to help people improve their leadership skills and build great organizations. The publishing of Ingaging Leadership by Evan Hackel in August 2014 was met with enormous success.

Meanwhile in May 2015, Laura Zak Hackel published The Energy of Healing, the first of 4 best-selling books edited by Erica Glessing.

In Laura’s words, since the door protector was installed, “the house just felt right. It is expansive and open and I feel safe”.

Laura Zak and Evan Hackel along with their high school daughter and 2 successful young men in their 20’s enjoy life and like sharing their goodness with family, friends, clients and strangers. They cheerily encourage you to purchase an embellished canvas wrapped print of their door protector and experience its full power.

Allow the mantra’s teachings and all the symbols to inform your path in life, see the way forward with more clarity, and sense the North Star’s illuminating the way out of a chain of seemingly insurmountable mountains.
