But she is also known to have many arms and heads to help her hear the prayers of the world and help all.

Meditation to connect with Kuan Yin
Get into a comfortable position. Take three deep breaths, relaxing your whole body. Hold your intention in connecting to Kuan Yin. You could say this in your head three times, ‘My intention is to connect with Kuan Yin.’
Breathe in and out slowly and deeply. Place your attention on your heart area. Imagine a pink light in your heart and as you breathe out, see it expanding. Getting bigger and bigger with each out breath until it surrounds your whole body. Feel the energy of this pink light. What does it feel like? Sit with this for a moment and just be.
Then with your attention on your heart ask for Kuan Yin to be with you. You feel her presence with you. She places her hands on your heart and sends you healing. Helping you open your heart up to unconditional love. To help receive it and to give it. Feel your heart open to this love for you. Feeling one with everything and knowing there is great love there for you and all. Kuan Yin then has a message for you and speaks to you.
After a while of sitting with this energy and speaking with Kuan Yin and when you are ready, take three deep breathes and come back to the room.
Write down your experience. What was she like? Did she appear to you? What was her message? How did you feel? What did the feeling of unconditional love feel like?
