We had the good fortune of connecting with YuSon Shin and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi YuSon, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
I whole-heartedly believe that individual consciousness affects collective consciousness. While my business is as multidimensional as a 7-layer dip, the overarching goal is to turn people on. (Pardon the play on words. Wink. Wink.) My business is built around helping people ignite their innate spiritual and healing gifts. I help them turn their inner light on again if life’s events have dimmed them down. As an intuitive, I give people information so they can get clarity, get on the right path, and get momentum to live their best life. As a healer, I clear blocks and provide the energy boost my clients’ need so their bodies can heal themselves. As a speaker, author, and teacher of intuition and healing workshops, I help provide ways to flex their superpowers, trust their intuition, and become their own guru and healer. Everyone is born with intuition and the ability to heal but we lose touch with these abilities as we grow older because they simply aren’t nurtured in that way. My business provides the community service of helping people tap into the incredible power to trust their gut and heal themselves and others. Strong intuition and healing abilities can vastly impact the quality of life on a personal level. On a worldwide level, people with these abilities help to uplevel their respective communities and the world. Disconnection and insecurity can lead to a domino effect of making poor choices, going down the wrong path, and wasting time, money, and energy on things that don’t matter when you look in the rearview mirror. People who feel strong, empowered and balanced because they are clear about who they are and what they want are the ones with cups that flow over and have an abundance to share. Once we come to understand that everyone is connected, it’s impossible not to have empathy and compassion. And when physical and emotional wounds are healed, our bodies have the strength to carry us to create an active, meaningful life for ourselves. Empowered souls don’t feel the need to subjugate others. There is a saying that “hurt people hurt people” and I want to break that cycle that can perpetuate across generations and over lifetimes. The enlightened are the ones who hold space for and extend a hand to multitudes of others to make a positive impact on the world. Every soul that has been lit up from the inside has a sphere of influence which creates an exponentially positive ripple effect which is so exciting. It’s my desire to take the ripple and create an enlightened healing movement.

What should our readers know about your business?
My business philosophy is captured within the proverb “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. I am a long-term goal-oriented rather than a temporary fix kinda gal. And that proverb is also about embodying personal power and having the tools in your toolbox for what life presents to you. My goal isn’t just to give someone a reading or healing and have them reliant on me or anyone else to spoon-feed them. Some healers or readers may think that the short term fix guarantees repeat business, but I would much rather empower someone with skills for life. That is why I fold in quick teaching tips in every session, incorporate homework assignments and also teach 2-day weekend healing and intuition workshops where all attendees do interactive exercises to flex their intuitive and healing muscles and gain powerful validation from their exercise partners. The workshops offer 6 different healing modalities, intuition, medical mediumship, and mediumship. It’s a thrill to see lightbulbs going on all the time when my students and clients get it. What also sets me apart from other healers & intuitives is that I don’t just give quick answers and insights which are again temporary solutions but I also clear blocks that keep people repeating negative patterns or thoughts that prevent them from living their fullest lives or result in disease. This is something I had to work on myself. Just because I’m a healer, it doesn’t mean I’m immune to living a human existence. By the way, working on yourself can be difficult to do. You have blind spots. You struggle to be neutral. It’s why doctors or mental health professionals don’t treat themselves or their family members. Even massage therapists need to receive massages from time to time. But you must do the work on yourself even if it means hiring help. Before I “officially” started my business, I was compelled to help people as a healer but felt blocked and dragged my heels. Even though my clients received great results, I perpetually felt resistance to being a healer. I found I had a very real fear of being persecuted for my abilities. I literally feared for my life. Every time I had a client I fought the urge to run and hide or cancel the appointment. I had to clear past lives where I was bullied, tortured, or killed because I was a healer or oracle. Once I cleared myself, I felt free and I could move towards building my business. The most common reason for clients to see me is because they feel “stuck” so I get to the root issue and clear it so they can be free again. The best healers are the ones who have overcome challenges and have a compassionate understanding of the human condition. I’m a little different than most healers in another way. Some of my favorite clients are animals. The Bengston Energy Healing Method created by Dr. Bill Bengston is one of my favorite healing methods for both humans and animals. It’s one of the only healing techniques scientifically and repeatedly tested to cure mammary cancer in mice. It has helped me reduce kidney failure from Stage 4 to a low Stage 2, treat osteosarcoma, hemangiosarcoma, bladder cancer and cure mammary cancer and Lymphoma. I just love working with animals and they seem to know to sit still while they receive the energy and they are active again when they’ve had their fill. I just love animals!

Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
LA is such a wonderful city with so many different neighborhoods to explore. If I were to show a friend around town, I would start with an early morning hike at Griffith Park to the Hollywood sign. Then off to have lunch at Fred 62, a diner in Los Feliz, where they serve everything from burgers with a side of sweet potato fries to vegan options. And with LA traffic we have to stay within the area and go see the Griffith Observatory where Rebel Without a Cause was filmed. And it’s a great place to watch the sunset over LA and if the Greek Theatre or Hollywood Bowl was open we’d grab a picnic dinner. Or find a friend with membership at The Magic Castle. Then if there is still time, we can see do the walk of stars on Hollywood Blvd which never closes. On the second day, I would hit up the LACMA after brunch at Republique. Then a quick tour of the Farmers Market on Fairfax. Then some shopping at the Grove or Rodeo Drive. Afterward, we can pick up some matcha boba at Urth Café on Melrose and take it across the screen to the community rooftop park at Restoration Hardware across the street. And in keeping with the rooftop theme, we can move the hangout to E.P. & L.P. on La Cienega for dinner. On the third day, downtown LA should be explored with possible visits to Chinatown for dim sum, Grand Central Market for a bite to eat, sweets at Bottega Louie, Little Tokyo for a shiatsu massage, music at the Disney concert hall, OUE Skyspace LA or catch a sporting event the Staples Center. On the way home, we would have to stop off at Wi Spa for a Korean body scrub and detox. On the fourth day, after grabbing some coffee at Champs Elysees near my home or Aroma Café in the Valley. As I head over the hill, I would have to visit the Getty Museum or the Japanese Garden or go for the thrills at Universal Studios and CityWalk at night. Margaritas at Antohitos makes everything better. And a visit to LA wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Malibu. We can take a leisurely drive up PCH and have breakfast at Dukes Malibu, Geoffrey’s or Paradise Cove Cafe. After filling our bellies, we can visit with the animals at Malibu Wine Safaris. On the way home, we can do a walking meditation at Shrine Lake as we take in the butterflies and swans at this gorgeous retreat. And the best place to catch the sunset in Santa Monica is at The Lobster where they serve beautiful seafood at the base of the SM pier. After darkness settles in, the lights from the ferris wheel at the end of the pier is mesmerizing. Bonus excursions would be to go kayaking in the canals at Long Beach where they procure the jellyfish for the Aquarium of the Pacific with a walk around at Belmont Shores and then top it off with ghost busting on the Queen Mary at night. And if we have a final day, we would make our way to Venice Boardwalk, the Venice Canals and the South Bay. Love coffee from Bulletproof Coffee on Main Street in Santa Monica or a tasty breakfast with unlimited coffee at The Kettle in Manhattan Beach. After dark, we can opt to light a bonfire and make s’mores at Dockweiler Beach or we can hit up the Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach for a more formal evening. LA has so much to offer!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My mom is the biggest supporter of me even when my work makes her uncomfortable. She is a devout Christian. Healing is ok within her beliefs but she has a healthy skepticism of energy because she can’t see it. She can’t see God, gravity or electricity either but she doesn’t question those. Mediumship is what makes her the most uncomfortable because it deals with death and in her mind, she associates it with ghosts which sound scary but not the loved ones in spirit I connect with. Despite her reservations and not knowing how to support me, she never told me not to pursue my interests. The simple act of not actively discouraging me or blocking me is HUGE in the Korean culture and my family where even strangers feel comfortable telling you what to do or not do. I acknowledge her for being kind, loving, and wise enough to give me space to be me. I’m also a lifelong student. I love to learn. I’ve been taking classes on healing for decades and there are too many teachers to mention or remember by name but I appreciate each and every one of them. Healers generally spend the bulk of their time with their clients so it’s very exciting to be in the company of other healers. The community that I’m plugged into most is that of the mediumship community which encompasses healing. When I first discovered that I am a medium, I took development circles with Colby Rebel. She hosts a once a month Sunday Spirit Service for mediums to give back in service and for anyone in the general public to come together on a monthly basis. It’s so healing and supportive. And fellow healer, medium and friend, Karen Glass, has created a Sunday Spirit Service in Ventura County to serve and heal in that area. I want to give a shoutout to my dog Peanut Mini Muffin who passed March 3rd. She was my greatest teacher. She taught me unconditional love and forced me to become a healer. She was born with a liver condition that usually shows up in puppies so vets didn’t diagnose hepatic encephalopathy in a 9-year old dog. I healed her over and over again and she gave me 10 wonderful years. Lastly, I want to give a shoutout to my friends, students, and clients (humans and animals). Every time I teach, I also learn something. Every time I give healing, I also receive healing.
