Passion and Vision Healing Arts actually started as a tarot card reading service and a place to show my artwork in 2016. However, between 2016-2018 was a period of life-changing upheavals which included a divorce, multiple job changes, finishing a bachelors degree at the age of 31 and soul-searching travels to different countries and islands around the world to reconnect with my family’s missing Polynesian roots.
One particular trip to Honolulu, Hawaii in the summer of 2017 solidified my soul mission for the business. I was badly sunburned throughout my whole body and walking around was excruciatingly painful. My health insurance did not cover any visits to any clinics out-of-state. I was reluctant to pay hundreds of dollars out-of-pocket to find a clinic and deal with my sunburns, especially during a vacation. I thought about the indigenous Polynesians that have lived here for thousands of years who never needed our modern technology and expensive insurance. Natural remedies were available around the island and they included the simplest ingredients like Aloe Vera and Kukui nut oil. I found those simple topical ingredients at a local convenient store for only $9.00 just a block away from the hotel I was staying in. I used the topical oil that night and within 24 hours, my painful burns cooled down and my skin color came back to normal. The joy and relief that I felt from getting something cured without breaking my bank account was beyond healing. I wanted to incorporate that joy with the natural healing ingredients from both the earth and the ocean into my retail shop.
My experience working with a wide variety of people from all different walks of life and getting to know their lives on a more personal level has led me on a new pathway to use my intuitive abilities and combine the family retail experience to help better the lives of others.

Three Generations in Business
My paternal grandparents ran their own separate general merchandise, grocery and Chinese herb shops in Rach Gia, Vietnam in the early 1940’s. My paternal grandmother became widowed in the 1960’s and continued to do business until the Fall of Saigon in the 1970’s in which the majority of the family escaped to the United States and Australia through a treacherous journey as boat refugees. My grandmother and father made it safely to Seattle, Washington in 1980 to join my youngest uncle who had sponsored them and the rest of the family. My parents met and married here in Seattle, WA and they have been continuing the family tradition of selling general merchandise and Chinese herbs to the community for over 30 years.
