A Journey to Joy

Have you tried to find true happiness because you feel the void in your heart even you are "successful" according to society’s standards? I have. Unfortunately, true lasting joy is an inside job, not an outside voice telling you what joy looks like.

In 2011, I was in my Ph.D. program is onset to become a professor, I married to the man of my life. Everyone thinks I am at the peak of my life except myself. I had severe anxiety and depression and frequented therapy offices.

At the time, I decided to find true lasting happiness.

After my first 200-hour Yoga and Meditation teacher training, I knew I was home. I meditate every day for 20-30 minutes and started to hear the voice inside.

I keep searching and following what lights me up! From interior design to Fengshui to surface pattern design, to vedic astrology, to Ayurveda and Chinese herbal medicine, to art, to crystal healing and now mentoring under Rebecca Campbell to Work My Light. I still vividly remembered when I had my first vedic astrology reading, the astrologist told me that my dharma (life purpose) this lifetime is to CREATE.

Now I've found it. I deeply believe that at my spirit level, joy and beauty are its expressions. My ancient soul was a wise teacher and healer and my humanness ask me to lead and create.

The Art

I've always love coloring and making special gifts to friends and family since I was a child. I am still like this today. My friends call me the "Color Queen".

I draw inspirations from all the beauties in life. Nature, light and shadow, scale and proportion, flowers, trees, crystals, garden, music and all the memories of traveling, delicious meals and dancing under the moon and stars. Life is about living it to its fullness, "C’est la vie"!

Meditation is another never failing source of inspiration for my work, I am highly clairvoyant and intuitive. Often times I paint what I see in my third eye. I believe creatives are channelers of the divine.

Because of my spiritual journey, I see colors as energies, in fact, everything is energy. All my art is about JOY and BEAUTY. This is the truest expression of my soul. You can feel it in my use of vibrant and saturated colors, joyful objects of life and expressive, energetic brushstrokes.

Synchronizing color, crystal and symbols energies to manifest a piece is my expertise. If you want to find a piece of art that has deep cosmic meaning and healing energy, you are in the right place.

The Crystal Healing

The healer must first heal him/herself. So they knew the suffering, the journey, and the evolution. I've done it through my 10-year journey and it continues. Lao Tzu says, “Knowing others is wise, knowing yourself is enlightenment.”

My goal in crystal healing is to aid your inner knowing and let the solution revealed to you. We have all the answers inside of ourselves, somehow, they just got blocked or masked. I am just a guide. You are the healer and healed.

I deeply believe that our body, mind and spirit are closely interrelated. Therefore, I adopt a very holistic view in crystal healing services. I also combine other alternative healing modalities including Ayurveda, Yoga, Meditation, Affirmations, Journaling, and Fengshui energy methods to create a healthy lifestyle for continuously self-healing.
