Community Highlights: Meet Winnie Wang of Mindful Healing Heart

Today we’d like to introduce you to Winnie Wang.

Hi Winnie, it’s an honor to have you on the platform. Thanks for taking the time to share your story with us – to start maybe you can share some of your backstory with our readers?
I am originally from Hong Kong, and my parents sent me to a boarding school in Andover, MA when I was 15. Due to the pain of separation from parents and friends and my home, #MeToo and also a breakup, I soon became a workaholic and by 11th grade, I immersed myself in work. Now I have four science degrees: computer science, Sloan school of management from MIT; Integrated Marketing from NYU and Oriental Medicine from Alhambra Medical University. Most of my life, I suffered from anxiety and depression. I was suicidal three times in my life.

In 2017 I was in a near-death car accident, which was the catalyst of my spiritual awakening. At the moment of the accident, I realized that all the stress and resentment are illusionary suffering that I created for myself. I was always worried in the future or dwelling how I have been wronged as a victim in the past. I was in constant survival mode. That same year, I started learning meditation, Reiki, and I became a spiritual seeker.

I learned many healing modalities along the way, became a Medical Intuitive. It’s funny because every year, I was “spiritually greedy”- I wanted to cultivate this and that ability, always comparing myself to other healers, either feeling superior or inferior to others.

In 2020 I started doing shadow work when I realized there is no darkness in others that isn’t also in me, and there’s no light in others that also isn’t in me. Basically, I have access to all light and all dark, I am really not better or worse than anyone.

In March 2021 a divorce with the man who has been my best friend, lover and family for 19 years sent me into “dark night of the soul”. With the rug and security pulled out under me, all of a sudden I saw all the darkness in me that I haven’t known before. I didn’t know I can experience so much hatred, resentment, revenge. I finally understood that I am as dark or as light as I choose.

All things are made of Yin Yang. By owning my darkness instead of rejecting it, all of a sudden I feel this peace and power that I have never felt before. Instead of being a “love and light” practitioner, I became one who has the ability to “recycle”. Just like trees can take carbon dioxide and turn it to oxygen, I discovered I have the ability to take darkness such as fear / shame / anger / sadness and transform it into love and light. I became a trauma specialist – one who can sit in the dark with compassion with her clients and coach my clients out of the dark tunnel by holding their hand in the dark and also being the guiding light to walk with them, one breathe at a time.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
The biggest struggle is definitely relationships. A sense that I am not loved and I don’t belong anywhere.

Being an immigrant who came here at 15, I used to feel like “I’m not American enough to be American because I didn’t grow up watching the same TV shows as everybody, and I’m not Chinese enough to be Chinese, because I don’t like to hang out with people who have mostly Asian friends.”

I also went through a phase where I felt like I’m not science enough to be with my doctor friends, and I’m not woo woo enough to be with my spiritual friends.

Finally, I understood that I am to serve as a bridge – between East and West, between Science and Spirituality. I don’t belong to one group because I am the bridge that helps bring people together.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Scientific + Spiritual healing = Release of pain + Discover your light

What makes me most special is that my healing is grounded in medical science but guided by spiritual help.

The first year in my practice, as a nerdy scientist/hacker, I approach every client with the curiosity of an engineer, and I truly enjoy “solving problems” for all my clients. Health, finance, relationships. That first year, three of the cancer clients passed away. The nerd in me really wanted to know: why don’t people heal? Of course, I understand that I am not God and I can’t heal everything, but I got really curious.

My Taoist teacher Master Sha teaches that the soul is the boss. Soul leads the heart, heart leads the mind, mind leads the energy, energy leads the body. So to heal the body, not only do we work with Energy with acupuncture / yoga, we also work with Mind, Heart and Soul.

My approach to healing trauma is to bring Soul + Heart + Mind + Energy + Body into alignment. I am writing a book to detail my trauma healing method… to be released around March 2022! Follow me on social media Facebook / Instagram to stay tuned to the release of my book with my trauma healing methodology.
