I attended an Ascention workshop quite a few years ago. I was wanting more Spiritual connection and I had a real spiritual curiostity that I had had since the age of three. At the workshop the teacher had everyone sit in a row and she stood behind each person and worked above their heads energetically. She then told us that we needed to go somewhere quiet and be aware of what we are feeling, hearing and sensing. She said, "You may hear a name", or a sound, and when you do that is your vibrational name. I went into a room and layed down. As I layed there I felt vibration and tingling throughout my body. After a short time I heard a voice say the name Mala. I thought "I made that up", I thought, if it was Mayla it would be ok, but not Mala. I was quite aware of worrying about what others would think at that time, so I didn't say anything to anyone there. About a month prior to this class I had gone to see a channeler. I had heard that the man I was seeing channeled Archangel Micheal. I was fairly new to a lot of this and I thought "That sounds interesting". I sat down with this chaneller and he held my hands. As I sat with him his body started to shake and I felt the room shift to a feeling of pure peace. He then said to me "Hello, my child, I am Kuon Yin, your gatekeeper". I felt myself completely fill with love. I did not know who Kuan Yin was at the time. I have since found out that she is the Hindu Goddess of compassion and mercy who has chosen to delay enlightenment until all suffering on earth has ceased. She teaches us to love ourselves and recognize our own divinity. She also heals with compassion and mercy and instills new levels of self esteem and emotional well-being. After leaving the Ascention class I told my best friend about my "Mala" experience. We both didn't know what to think of it and let it go. About a month later my friend went to visit her sister in Vancouver. They attended a seminar and the facilitator's name just happened to be "Mala". My friend asked her if Mala was her given name, Mala said "No, it is my vibrationaly name, it means Kuan Yin, the mother of compassion. This was my confirmation that Kuan Yin is my gatekeeper. After many years of learning I feel her more and more every year working with me while I work with people. Such blessings and love.
