Rising Stars: Meet Kristine Lo

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kristine Lo.

Hi Kristine, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I’m a Gemini Sun with a deep passion for Creativity, Community, and Conscious Living. You can often find me creating, connecting with others, being in nature, eating, drinking tea, or practicing mindfulness.

Creativity for me is a way of being. I often use my inner compass of curiosity to navigate my career and personal challenges, something I like to call ‘conscious creativity.’ My inspiration to create comes from being in nature and practicing traditional Asian wellness practices like Mindfulness, Cha Dao Tea Ceremony, and Reiki. I also use my psychic gift of channeling and claircognizance (clear knowing) to support my clients and community.

As the Creative Director of a Conscious Creative Studio, NATURE AND INTENT, I create space for others to ignite their creativity and elevate their dharma (purpose). Through Holistic Branding, Photography, & Content Creation, we support our clients to elevate their authentic essence and purpose. In essence, we elevate their ‘nature and intent’.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Professionally, I’ve pivoted careers a lot finding what is most creatively and financially fulfilling. I went from starting a fashion brand at 20 years old and then ending it working full-time as a Finance Manager. When I finally had the courage to leap full-time into creating for a living, I worked hard to build my portfolio, contacts, and skill-set. There were a lot of moments of doubt, late nights, having a negative bank account, accruing debt, losing friendships, getting angry, and feeling frustrated about everything.

But there has been a lot of beautiful manifestations and moments with others that I cherish. A major highlight is creating a global conscious community of healers and wellness brands from Los Angeles to my home country of the Philippines. When I’m on a zoom call or meeting with a client, I love that moment when they feel seen and heard. My work connects me with the most inspiring and kindest women from around the world. I feel so lucky to co-create with others and feel that sense of community even if we’re not physically in the same city.

Working in wellness, I’ve also had privileged access to the best healers, wellness modalities and experience luxurious self-care sessions. Despite this access and the wisdom shared with me from healers over the years, I’ve been on a journey of learning to care for and prioritize myself. To become my own healer. My personal healing journey has brought me to my knees in the past year and I’m learning and re-learning to practice compassion, self-love, acceptance, and setting boundaries.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
I wear many creative hats as Creative Director, Photographer, Brand Strategist, Producer, Community Builder, Mindfulness Guide, and more. I primarily work with conscious and wellness brands through the art of storytelling and conscious content creation.

My photography work is about capturing the beauty of a moment. I shoot campaigns, editorials, portraits, and lifestyle photography for fashion, lifestyle, and wellness brands.

As the Creative Director of a Conscious Creative Studio, NATURE AND INTENT, I work with healers and wellness brands to share their gifts and medicine with others. We do this through our creative services: Content Creation, Holistic branding, Photography, and Content Production.

We’re known for sharing about Conscious Content Creation – a way of creating content with your authentic truth instead of regurgitating what you see others share online. There’s so much noise in the digital space that words can lose a lot of meaning. Don’t even get me started on the copycat strategies promoted by so many business coaches and online marketing gurus. What I encourage our clients and community is to share from their lived experience, expertise and not plagiarize (or steal) other people’s work. I feel it’s a disservice to your inherent creativity when you pass off other people’s words and work as your own. Through the Conscious Content Creation process, we elevate and share your ‘nature and intent’.

What I’m most proud of is that through NATURE AND INTENT we’ve built an impactful conscious business. Sharing other people’s medicine so that we can heal the collective. We also strive to always be in integrity with what we preach and promote online – aligning with our ‘nature and intent’.
