who am i?
I’ve been asking myself this question my entire life. I’m a Korean-born, adopted, American, mother, wife, entrepreneur, speaker, storyteller, teacher, energy worker, mystic, marketer, connector, curator, manifesting generator, ENFP, nature worshipper, and spiritual explorer.
And none of those things, at all.
When my mother was pregnant with me, she awoke from a dream of a giant shooting star falling to earth, and named me Byul Nim, the honorific form of the word ‘star’.
It’s my destiny to shine light in this world.
how did it all begin?
I was given up for adoption at 3 years old and moved to the United States to be raised by a new family who didn’t look, sound, or act anything like me. This created a deep sense of abandonment and uncertainty about my identity but, I adapted and, in the process, locked all of my needs and pain away where they wouldn’t interfere with the success of my life.
There were some dark times.
Thankfully, I had been asking some big questions like, “who am I?” and “why am I here?” as I explored different metaphysical, religious, and spiritual philosophies. This curiosity carried my bludgeoned spirit to a study abroad office at the University of California, Irvine and onto an epic adventure, with an unintended spiritual awakening.
On a mountainside in New Zealand, I experienced the Oneness of all that is. The light of the universe enveloping me and emanating from me. I was given the knowledge I was seeking … that I am one with everything and my mission was to heal my heart, find my gifts, and share them with the world.
what have i learned?
Through 30 years of self-inquiry, healing, and a deep exploration of the Oneness I experienced when I was 20, I’ve come home to myself. To a place of deep knowing, creativity, joy, and grace. To a time of serving my family, friends, clients, and colleagues in love.
My career has been a reflection of this journey. Learning for myself, teaching others, and helping others teach what they know.
My professional life began in the field of alternative healing and holistic wellness as I addressed the wounds of my mind and body. I became an entrepreneur, to get healing work into the lives of more people, and launched a first-of-its-kind traveling spa and wellness retreat company in Los Angeles servicing Hollywood events and corporate offices.
My love for marketing blossomed as did my desire to help other entrepreneurs. I started a branding and marketing agency, and created workshops for small business owners who weren’t ready for an agency. This led to recruitment by Constant Contact and then a contract with Google to help them develop and deliver educational marketing programs that reached hundreds of thousands of people.
I’ve worked with countless entrepreneurs and companies helping them grow and reach more people and have been growing right alongside them.
I continue to deepen my inner guidance, explore new ideas, build skills and knowledge … and live life to the fullest. I am forever reflecting, digging, and unearthing my truths, and most importantly celebrating them.
The journey never ends. Let’s talk about how I can support yours.
