Transform your mind, body, soul and spirit with me in 365 days!
In the next 365 days I will record a video blog or two every week and share my personal journey of loving myself with you. The blog will include affirmations and exercises that I do daily to remind myself of who I really am: a beautiful, youthful, creative, talented, and glorious soul that has the power to inspire and change lives.

About me: It took me fifteen years to overcome the aftermath of my autoimmune diseases (I was wheeled into the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center and hooked onto an oxygen tank immediately, given nine packs of blood transfusion and my blood count kept dropping). The doctors had no idea why I was dying. This lead to ten years of fatigue, depression and binge eating. I was suicidal, bitter and slowly killing myself with food, cigarettes, among other toxic situations. I had no energy for anything. I was a sad and lonely human being, but in my heart I knew I was capable of more. I knew I can be healthy again, but I just didn't know how to get healthy. Since I was bedridden all the time, I started searching for answers. I searched and researched and read dozen upon dozen of self-help books. I taught myself how to read the Bible. I listened to hours and hours of inspirational coaches and pastors podcasts and attended seminars. I healed myself of my auto-immune dis-eases and started living the life I desire.
This year, I finally came to the conclusion that it's time for me to share my journey of self-love and healing with the world. And also, I really don't see another Asian American woman inspirational spirit coach/guru/speaker out there. I love Joyce Meyer, Joel Osteen, Marianne Williamson, Deepak Chopra, Oprah, but they are not Asian! I am here to represent. This blog will include my experience as an immigrant, a mom, an actress, a healer and producer/writer/creator of my one woman show "Second Chances For Grace." I am so happy to be free from the past and I get to share the wisdom I gained with you! Read more for a free exercise.
MIRROR EXERCISE: Go to the bathroom or just use phone camera. Look into the mirror or lens. SEE YOURSELF. Breathe. (this may feel weird and uncomfortable at first, it's okay, you are NOT being vain) Say out loud, "I love you, (your name)." Repeat this 3 times. Say it with conviction. Repeat it as many times as you want until you believe it in your bones. Sense the resistance. Allow it to come up. Feel it. Breathe through it. Let it be. Embrace the uncomfortable feelings that may arise. Breathe. Say it again. "I LOVE YOU, (your name)." "I Really Love You, (Your Name). "I Fuckin' Love You, (your name)." Say it from your loins.
Imagine you are expressing your love to someone you are madly in love with. You remember? Your first love? Those butterflies in the belly, you start to feel dizzy, your head spins. What is going on? Breathe. Allow yourself to bask in this love, except all this love is directed towards YOU this time. How do you feel? Are you making fun of this exercise? Are your thoughts running wild telling you to check Facebook? Laugh. Let it be. Release the need to judge.
Take a journal out. Date the entry. Jot down any thoughts, feelings you may have. As you practice this mirror exercise more and more, it will become effortless. Just give it some time. I believe in you. If I can do it, you can do it.
Here's what I wrote in my journal after doing the exercise:
Wow. I feel...I feel like crying. I feel like I'm I don't know..I just feel crazy. I Feel like I'm in an out of body experience. Like I'm looking at someone saying I love you to someone name Kiki. But then I start to really see myself in the camera and I started feeling it in my stomach and my heart and my eyes started tearing up and I just felt a little numb and...liberated. I felt release. I felt - love.
How did you feel when you looked into the mirror today? I value and appreciate everything that you share with me! Comment below!

My artist journey: I fell in love with movies when I was a kid. I ❤️ to play make believe and immerse myself into new environments and characters. My younger brother and I used to pretend we were operating a cinema and sold tickets to invisible guests. My father introduced me to my first movies...there were so many! Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Pretty Woman, Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, The Sound of Music, West Side Story. He is the reason I became an entertainer. He passed away in May 2015 three months before I was going to give birth to my first born Sky. It was a very painful time. I pray he is in heaven now eating his favorite (apples and grapes), singing and playing the piano, guitar and drums (he was that talented) with God. I miss my Dad everyday. Watching movies and listening to music connects me to him.
Acting, writing and producing stories saved my life. This year, I will continue to dedicate and focus my commitment to becoming the most fierce entertainer/storyteller that I can be. My dreams became a reality all because I learned how to love myself first.
If you are in LA, catch my one woman show "Second Chances For Grace" at the Santa Monica Playhouse on Saturday February 18th 8pm! I transform into over a dozen characters during the show and it chronicles my healing journey.
