Healing the world one heart at a time
Sharing the teaching of Quan Yin, the Essence of Compassion
as channeled by Reverend Charlotte Tinker
From Quan Yin
"We are liking to call that part of your mind that is always telling you that you are not good enough, or that you should have been knowing better, or that you did it wrong, the Critical Mind. This Small One has let Us be using her name for this ego part. This Critical Mind, it is like a tape recording. It has taped all of the things you have heard in your first five years. It is like a tape that has been glued together in a circle or a loop, and it goes 'round and 'round with the same information about how "bad" you are.
Something happens and that happening pushes the button on the tape recording, and Critical Mind repeats everything from your growing up years as a young child. Critical Mind does not be taking in new information; it is only always repeating old beliefs, old fears that you have been taught.
Now you are taking up Spiritual Practices, and Critical Mind, it learns new language, so now it is telling you same bad stuff in new language. Critical Mind changes language, not content.
Self-forgiveness change the content. Self-forgiveness breaks the tape. " Quan Yin
I have a practice I use to lessen the power of Critical Mind in my life. When I hear the voice telling me all the bad stuff, or feel it (Critical Mind is often sneaky that way) I say, out loud, "Thank you for that interesting information dear Critical Mind. Go stand in the corner, I am going to talk to Quan Yin." (You CAN talk to Quan Yin by asking for her. However, everyone has a higher self at the heart center to contact.) I take a couple of breaths, center into my heart, ground and take another breath and sit quietly for a few moments. Then I follow up with my Self-forgiveness practice and close with my Gratitude practice.
Self-Forgiveness Practice: from Ho'Onoponopono. 4 part mantra. I love you, I'm sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you. I do several rounds and close with I love you. (I'm sorry and Please forgive me are NOT about having done wrong - they are about holding on to the old belief patterns that no longer serve you.)
Gratitude practice: Thank you for everything, I have no complaints whatsoever.
Visit Quan Yin in an established Sitting Circle, or arrange for an Evening With Quan Yin in your home with your friends.
Many of Quan Yin's lessons have been transcribed and self-published in a series of books and pamphlets as "Quan Yin Speaks". They are available for purchase at our Books 'n' Things page.
