Hueina Su & Jack Canfield
Interview On the Red Carpet





Best-selling author Hueina Su and co-star New York Times #1 best-selling author of Chicken Soup for the Soul series Jack Canfield were interviewed on self-mastery and self-love at “The Keeper of the Keys” documentary movie premiere.

Best-selling author, motivational keynote speaker and self-help expert Hueina Su was interviewed on the red carpet at the Las Vegas premiere of the ground-breaking self-help film “The Keeper of the Keys” along with her co-star Jack Canfield, New York Times #1 best-selling author of The Chicken Soup for the Soul series.

Hueina Su, MS, BSN, CEC, is a mindful wellness and women’s empowerment expert, international keynote speaker, certified life coach, and the best-selling author of Intensive Care for the Nurturer’s Soul: 7 Keys to Nurture Yourself While Caring for Others and the upcoming Peaceful Power: A Prescription for Long-Lasting Inner Peace, True Happiness and Unstoppable Success. Su is the president and founder of Beyond Horizon Coaching in Denville, New Jersey.

The Keeper of the Keys movie has already earned accolades in the industry. Stephen Simon, co-founder of Spiritual Cinema Circle and acclaimed producer of hit movies such as What Dreams May Come and Somewhere in Time, said, “The Keeper of The Keys is the most innovative and entertaining film of its kind ever made. Wildly original, howlingly funny, fast-paced, and utterly delightful in every way, the film is truly a gift to the world. True to its ad copy, the film takes ‘the hell out of self-help’ and is the new gold standard in its genre. When you see this movie, you will learn, laugh, and clap your hands with joy!” Simon is in the process of licensing the movie DVD for April 2012 release to its members in 65 countries.

Canfield and Su were interviewed by “Elvis” (Steve Connolly) on the red carpet. Su shared her message in the film. “The path is success and happiness is to master yourself, to know your true self – who you really are. It’s coming inside, not from external or material circumstances.” Su said. “I hope the audience can learn the 7 keys from this movie to become more self-aware and realize your own potential.”

Canfield chimed in with Su. “No matter what your situation or how down you may be, you can turn your life around with your consciousness and commitment and create a life of your dreams,” Canfield said. “The most important key is the key of vibration. Love and happiness are coming from inside. Love yourself, love your life, love your dream, love your passion, love your desire. Honor yourself and be your true self.

Red Balloon and a Message from Kwan Yin The Goddess of Compassion

There are encounters in life that you know, in the core of your being, are more than coincidental. There are connections that you know last more than a lifetime.

She has always been a part of my life, for as long as I could remember, at least for this lifetime. But, it wasn’t until recently that I’m realizing, slowly, her significance to me. Last night, I got to meet her “live” for the first time, and my heart was filled with so much love, peace, joy and gratitude. All day long today, I’m in this elevated vibration and I feel like a part of me is still somewhere “out there” with her.

I’m referring to Kwan Yin, the Goddess of Compassion, a revered Buddhist Goddess from China.

Actually, I’ve met her before, although last night was my first time meeting her through someone who can channel her. Born and raised in Taiwan, I’m no stranger to Kwan Yin. My parents have a beautiful white ceramic Kwan Yin statue as well as a sculpted jade mural of her on our family altar. For as long as I could remember, every morning and night, in addition to all major holidays, we would say our prayers to Buddha, Kwan Yin, other gods and our ancestors. Interestingly, Kwan Yin was (and still is) the main god on our family altar, where Buddha (more specifically, there are 2 Laughing Buddhas) took the “second seat”. Come to think of it, that’s quite interesting. Perhaps I should ask my parents why.

Kwan Yin is the female form of the Buddhist Bodhisattva Avalokitasvara. In China and Taiwan, she is said to be the protector of fishermen and practically anyone who would call for her. She voluntarily gave up her own enlightenment until she could ease all suffering in the world. The name Kwan Yin (or Guanyin) is short for Guanshiyin (觀世音) in Chinese, which literally means “Observing the Sounds (or Cries) of the World.”

To me, Kwan Yin is so peaceful and beautiful. Even as a child, I was drawn to her peaceful presence. And, anyone who has 1,000 eyes and 1,000 arms, rides a dragon, and can help everyone all at once, is definitely powerful. Hey, I guess it’s no coincidence why I came up with “Reclaiming the Peaceful, Powerful & Beautiful You” as the theme of The Venus Evolution Global Telesummit last year! :)

Growing up, Kwan Yin was a part of my everyday life, and I’ve always loved her, but after I moved away from home, I kind of lost touch with her. I didn’t feel particularly close to her until last year. When I took a class about White Tara, the Goddess of Compassion in Tibetan Buddhism, I learned that she is one and the same as Kwan Yin in Chinese Buddhism. When I read a particular story about Tara, it dawned on me why I was so drawn to her.

“In this tale there is a young princess who lives in a different world system, millions of years in the past. Her name is Yeshe Dawa, which means ‘Moon of Primordial Awareness’. For quite a number of aeons she makes offerings to the Buddha of that world system, whose name was Tonyo Drupa. She receives special instruction from him concerning bodhicitta — the heart-mind of a bodhisattva. After doing this, some monks approach her and suggest that because of her level of attainment she should next pray to be reborn as a male to progress further. At this point she lets the monks know in no uncertain terms that from the point of view of Enlightenment it is only ‘weak minded worldlings’ who see gender as a barrier to attaining enlightenment. She sadly notes there have been few who wish to work for the welfare of beings in a female form, though. Therefore she resolves to always be reborn as a female bodhisattva, until samsara is no more. She then stays in a palace in a state of meditation for some ten million years, and the power of this practice releases tens of millions of beings from suffering. As a result of this, Tonyo Drupa tells her she will henceforth manifest supreme bodhi as the Goddess Tārā in many world systems to come.”

With this story in mind, it is interesting to read a quotation from the Dalai Lama about Tārā, spoken at a conference on Compassionate Action in Newport Beach, CA in 1989:

“There is a true feminist movement in Buddhism that relates to the goddess Tārā. Following her cultivation of bodhicitta, the bodhisattva’s motivation, she looked upon the situation of those striving towards full awakening and she felt that there were too few people who attained Buddhahood as women. So she vowed, “I have developed bodhicitta as a woman. For all my lifetimes along the path I vow to be born as a woman, and in my final lifetime when I attain Buddhahood, then, too, I will be a woman.”

When I read that story, I got so emotional and couldn’t stop crying. Somehow I realized, at that moment, that I too had signed a similar soul contract to be a woman for all my lifetimes. Since then, I became fascinated with Kwan Yin and actively sought connection with her. After twenty some years, we were reunited at last.

So, you can imagine how excited I was, when I (quite accidentally) came across this event called “An Evening with Kwan Yin.” Somehow I felt compelled to be there. I had to reschedule a radio interview and some other engagements, so I could free up the entire evening for this meeting. I dug up the jade Kwan Yin necklace that my mom gave me years ago, and put on a beautiful Chinese blouse. As I was getting ready to go, I thought of a lovely book I’ve read about Kwan Yin’s teaching that’s entirely channeled by someone in deep hypnosis. I wondered if she would sound like Kwan Yin in that book. I was excited and a little nervous at the same time.

The meeting was in the basement of a small gift shop called Blu Lotus. When I walked in the door, the first thing I noticed was 3 Kwan Yin statues on a small table facing the entrance, and guess what, I have one of the same statues at home. “There you are,” I thought to myself, “I’m at the right place.” In the small basement, there were about a dozen women gathered in a circle, and Christine, the spiritual teacher, showed us the crystal skulls, which she said Kwan Yin had asked her to bring to this session. Feeling like I was the only one who was clueless, I asked her about the significance of these skulls. She quickly handed the largest one to me, saying “Here, I think you should hold this one.” It’s Kwan Yin’s Lapis Lazuli skull, Isis. Holding the skull, I wasn’t sure what to do. I wish I could tell you that I felt or heard something, but I didn’t. Oh well. Maybe next time.

Christine explained to us what would happen in a channeling session, and asked us to be respectful when Kwan Yin arrives. Then she crossed her legs and bowed her head down in meditation. About 5 minutes later she slowly raised her head and began to speak. Her demeanor and voice changed. Kwan Yin was very soft-spoken and at first I could barely hear her, especially because someone else was talking and laughing in the next room. I pleaded, silently, “Please Kwan Yin, let me hear you.” Luckily, after a short while, those ladies finished their meeting and left. We could finally focus on Kwan Yin’s teaching. Still, her voice was so soft and low that I was struggling to hear her words. Honestly, I don’t remember everything she said. Her voice kind of put me in a trance, and maybe she did that on purpose. Either that, or my short-term memory was not working so well. Haha!

What I do remember is that we need to cultivate the “heart consciousness”, i.e. shifting from our head to our heart. Kwan Yin said that we spend way too much time in our head, and don’t trust our own heart and our intuition. She put a silk lotus flower over her heart and told us to open our heart like the lotus flower. She stressed the importance of love and compassion — both for others and for ourselves. Actually, she said many times to love yourself, trust yourself and listen to your heart. I chuckled as she said that she doesn’t understand our modern world, which is so different from the 14th century when she lived on earth. She talked about the “iron horse” we drive and the rectangular box with pictures and sound that everybody is so obsessed with. The Goddess has a great sense of humor. She instructed us to live in the present moment, because that’s the only moment that’s real. Release the guilt and shame from the past that no longer serve us. She told us that each one of us was called there, because we were pure-hearted. All of us are on the right path. We need to have faith and trust ourselves.

When I got home, I was tired but felt much lighter. I remember when I walked in the door, I saw the red heart-shaped balloon that my chiropractor gave me floating in the corner of our living room. However, when I finally got in bed, I was surprised to see the red balloon floating next to my dresser, on my side of the bed. My first reaction was, “Did somebody move the balloon?” but everybody was already asleep at that point. Then I smiled as I thought about the “heart consciousness” Kwan Yin taught us. As I gazed at the balloon I said “Thank you Kwan Yin, I got it. Thanks for the reminder!” All of a sudden, the red balloon floated about a foot toward me and then sank ALL the way to the floor. I couldn’t believe my eyes! My first gut feeling was, “ground yourself in love.” OK that’s really cool. Obviously she knows I’m totally a visual person so she decided to SHOW me her message.

My happiness was short-lived, however, as a sense of panic took over. What if it meant “fallen love”? Did something bad happen to my parents?!!! I jumped out of bed and rushed to the phone in the kitchen. It was past midnight but I just HAD to call my parents in Taiwan. It actually took me many tries, before I reached BOTH of them. I’ll spare you the drama here. Luckily due to the time difference it was their lunch time, so at least I didn’t have to wake them up in the middle of the night. They were both safe and sound, although a bit surprised that I called at that hour. Feeling relieved, I went back to bed.

The next morning, I called Christine to thank her and told her about the balloon. I didn’t tell her what I thought at all, only what I saw. She said it’s such a beautiful message, that Kwan Yin wanted to bring my heart closer to me (and to her). She also thinks the balloon sinking to the floor meant “grounding.” I told her that’s what I thought at first, but then I got worried about my parents. Before I could tell her that I did find out my parents were fine, she immediately assured me it’s not about them, and that my first intuition was correct.

Isn’t it funny? Here I am being tested again, by the great Goddess herself, to listen to my heart and trust my intuition, which has been a lesson given to me, over and over, recently. Instead of trusting my first intuition, my ego mind rushed in with a huge dose of fear. How typical! I just have to laugh at myself. What a lesson! Hopefully, next time I’ll be able to discern better.

By the way, I tried to plop the balloon up in the air, but, it decidedly wouldn’t float up again. I’ll remember the message, nonetheless.

Trust your heart. Ground yourself in LOVE.

Thank you Kwan Yin!

HERO or HERD?

The other day, my son forgot his alto saxophone and asked me to bring it to school for him. Since he doesn’t normally forget his stuff, I brought it to him. On my way home from school, the license plate on the car right in front of me caught my attention. In all capital letters the license plate reads “THEHERD.” Quickly I snapped a picture of it with my iPhone.

My first impression was “THE HERO“, and I thought to myself: How fitting…. Think about all the things we do as parents, every single day, for our children. While most are mundane and even trivial, some of the stuff we do are nothing short of heroic. We do it willingly, and we don’t need a medal or a fancy Batmobile, either. I felt a deep sense of pride, thinking “I’m a SHERO who drives a minivan.:)

When I got home and had a closer look at the picture, I realized that the license plate reads “THE HERD“, not “THE HERO.” The capital D looks like O from a distance. Haha! Obviously I could use a stronger prescription for my contact lens.

How abut you? What did you see at first glance? THE HERO or THE HERD?

Then it dawned on me that this was yet another “Message from the Universe” for me.

You see, I often receive signs and messages from the Universe through license plates, songs on the radio, animals, message from other people, etc. The messages are often timely and profound. Of course, the more I learn to pay attention, the more messages I receive.

In this case, I was thinking about writing an article on courage the night before, and there it was, right in front of me, “THE HERO” in big, bold capital letters!!

Of course, I know what you’re thinking: “But it says THE HERD, not THE HERO on the license plate! You read it wrong!”

Did I?

I believe that we have a way of seeing what our heart (or Soul, or the Universe) wants us to see, if we are being open and present enough. There’s no doubt in my mind why I was seeing THE HERO instead of THE HERD. For one, I’d rather be a HERO (or I should say SHERO) for my children, instead of someone who just herds them around town. I want to be someone who fiercely protects them, stands up for them, and be a good role model for them.

Same for my own life. I’d rather be a HERO on my own journey, blazing my own path, taking whatever risks to live my destiny. I’m no longer willing to keep my head down, silence my voice, compromise my values, conform to rules and expectations that are not aligned with my true self, or stay faceless, voiceless and powerless in a HERD on a beaten path leading AWAY from my soul’s purpose. You might think it’s safer to say in a HERD. There’s safety in numbers, right? Not necessarily.

Every time you do things that are against your values, every time you ignore that quiet whisper from the core of your being, or give up your voice and your self-respect, in order to play safe, to please others, to avoid being judged, rejected or ridiculed, you are giving up a small piece of your true self. You are slowly but surely killing your Soul. It is painful not knowing your purpose in life. It’s even MORE painful when you know, deep in your Soul, what your calling is, why you are here in this lifetime, yet for whatever reason you are denying it, turning away from it, standing by the sideline and not able to LIVE it.

I saw very clearly this kind of suffocating anxiety and soul-murdering angst in quite a few entries in my ONE DECISION Challenge in the past week. Most of them know their life purpose and why they want to achieve their goals. Their goals are all different and personal. However, when asked what’s keeping them from living their purpose and reaching their goals, their answers were awfully similar: Lack of courage, confidence, self-esteem, self-worth, self-discipline, accountability and/or know-how. I can totally relate, because just a few short years ago, I was there. Lost. Paralyzed by fears. Feeling powerless. Filled with anxiety, guilt, shame and self-loathing. Now I’m crystal clear why I’m here and I’m on the right path.

It takes tremendous courage to go after your dream, to stand up for what you believe, to speak your truth, to be a leader, or, just to be YOU. You might have a vision to inspire and serve a certain population, to make a change or a difference through your business. You might have a personal goal of creating a better life for yourself and your family. Maybe you wish to be a role model for your children, or for your parents to be proud of you. Or, maybe you just want to feel good in your own skin and finally be at peace with who you truly are.

No matter what your goal is, it requires you to muster up your courage and take a stand. It requires you to be the HERO on your own journey, instead of staying in the HERD. What do you stand for? Who/what will you fiercely protect and defend? What are you willing to invest (time, money, energy, hard work)? What are you willing to risk and sacrifice?

The more important question is: WHO will you be? THE HERO or THE HERD? It’s time for you to make a choice.
