Kwan Yin / St. Jude Meditation

Article by Chimi 

This meditation helps you to balance compassion and resilience by calling upon Kwan Yin and St. Jude.

Kwan Yin is the Chinese Buddhist deity of compassion, and St. Jude is the Roman Catholic patron saint of hopeless causes. Kwan Yin hears the cries of her people, and St. Jude helps us to see the light at the end of the tunnel, even when we think we can’t. I call on both of these deities as needed.

This meditation assumes you have a good understanding of the 7 chakras. You may want to record this.

1. Make sure you are in a quiet place and sitting or lying down comfortably. Close your eyes or gently gaze down a few feet in front of you.

2. Visualize Kwan Yin at your left shoulder, standing slightly above it.

3. Visualize St. Jude at your right shoulder, standing slightly above it.

4. Kwan Yin touches the left side of your head. She sends energy that manifests as a purple color, with silver flickers of light in it, from the top of your head down to the base of your spine.

5. St. Jude touches the left side of your head. He sends energy that manifests as a green color, with gold flickers of light in it, from the top of your head down to the base of your spine.

6. The purple energy from Kwan Yin and green energy from St. Jude intertwine with each other as they move down your spine. They wrap around the spine and get closer, and both energies fuse with each other. The purple is deep, mysterious, helping you to go inside yourself. The green is vibrant, open, helping you express who you are.

7. Sit with both energies traveling along your spine for as long as you can.

8. The purple and green energies reach the base of your spine, entering your Root Chakra. The purple energy envelopes the Root Chakra, gently cleansing the chakra and filling it with compassionate energy. The green energy goes out from your Root Chakra as gentle rays of light, increasing its ability to expand and send energy out into the universe. Feel the soft purple energy of the Kwan Yin nurturing your Root Chakra and the strong energy of St. Jude supporting the energy being sent out from the Root Chakra. You are nurtured as you go forward in this world and supported in your ability to take care of yourself.

9. The purple and green energies enter your Sacral Chakra. The purple energy envelopes the Sacral Chakra, gently cleansing the chakra and filling it with compassionate energy. The green energy goes out from your Sacral Chakra as gentle rays of light, increasing its ability to expand and send energy out into the universe. Feel the soft purple energy of the Kwan Yin nurturing your Sacral Chakra and the strong energy of St. Jude supporting the energy being sent out from the Sacral Chakra. You are nurtured as you establish healthy boundaries with others and nourish your creativity.

10. The purple and green energies enter your Solar Plexus Chakra. The purple energy envelopes the Solar Plexus, gently cleansing the chakra and filling it with compassionate energy. The green energy goes out from your Solar Plexus as gentle rays of light, increasing its ability to expand and send energy out into the universe. Feel the soft purple energy of the Kwan Yin nurturing your Solar Plexus and the strong energy of St. Jude supporting the energy being sent out from the Solar Plexus. You are nurtured as you learn how to use the power within to manifest the life you want.

11. The purple and green energies enter your Heart Chakra. The purple energy envelopes the Heart Chakra, gently cleansing the chakra and filling it with compassionate energy. The green energy goes out from the Heart Chakra as gentle rays of light, increasing its ability to expand and send energy out into the universe. Feel the soft purple energy of the Kwan Yin nurturing your Heart Chakra and the strong energy of St. Jude supporting the energy being sent out from the Heart Chakra. You are nurtured as you learn how to love, be compassionate, and forgive yourself and others.

12. The purple and green energies enter into your Throat Chakra. The purple energy envelopes the chakra, gently cleansing the chakra and filling it with compassionate energy. The green energy goes out from the Throat Chakra as gentle rays of light, increasing its ability to expand and send energy out into the universe. Feel the soft purple energy of the Kwan Yin nurturing your Throat Chakra and the strong energy of St. Jude supporting the energy being sent out from the Throat Chakra. You are nurtured as you learn to speak your truth and express who you are.

13. The purple and green energies enter into your Brow Chakra. The purple energy envelopes the chakra, gently cleansing the chakra and filling it with compassionate energy. The green energy goes out as gentle rays of light, increasing its ability to expand and send energy out into the universe. Feel the soft purple energy of the Kwan Yin nurturing your Brow Chakra and the strong energy of St. Jude supporting the energy being sent out from the Brow Chakra. You are nurtured as you increase in wisdom, intelligence, intuition, and imagination.

14. The purple and green energies enter into your Crown Chakra. The purple energy envelopes the chakra, gently cleansing the chakra and filling it with compassionate energy. The green energy goes out as gentle rays of light, increasing its to expand and send energy out into the universe. Feel the soft purple energy of the Kwan Yin nurturing your Crown Chakra and the strong energy of St. Jude supporting the energy being sent out from the Crown Chakra. You are nurtured as you become aware of your connectedness to all and your higher purpose in life.

Each chakra is now enveloped in purple energy, supported and nourished, cleansing and revitalizing it. As its energy is extended out into the universe, the green energy surrounding the purple energy follows it outward, giving it strength as it reaches out to all sentient being in the universe. You can either choose to let the energies gently fade away from the chakras, allowing them to return to their colors of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Or you can imagine that the purple and green energy, remain at a low level, the purple energy surrounding the chakra, and rays of green light going out from it.

May your chakras be strong, healthy, and vibrant!
Namaste.
