I am the founder of Enlightened Heart. My birthname, Wai Sum (慧心), literally translates to enlightened heart – a term that is used in buddhism meaning a heart that can understand the wisdom of the buddha.
I have always been musical. I achieved 8th grade Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) for piano and 6th grade AMEB for oboe. I was also a member of a choir and orchestra.
When I was exploring healing modalities back in 2004, it became clear to me that I needed to find something that is truly me. This is how I found sound healing, using sound for healing purposes. After the path became clear I started my journey to understand how to use sound for healing.
Since 2006, I started exploring the crystal singing bowls and sound healing, and developed my own toning methods that combines that with the crystal bowls harmoniously to create angelic-like sounds. I work intuitively and create melodies and tunes spontaneously depending on what the client requires.
In addition to that, I am a consultant and have worked in many organsiations facilitating workshops and programs on the topics such as cultural diversity and leadership and have been recognised through prestige awards through the years, including being an inductee to the Victorian Honour Roll of Women in 2012.
I do work with other musicians and healers and was involved in:
- Gerald Marko Honours Recital at Bennetts Lane
- Acts of Love: Sacred Connections
- The Hero’s Journey Exhibition
- Embodied Alchemy
- Belonging from the Inside Out
- Coalition of Female Social Entrepreneurs
