Power of Prayer

March 26, 2017

Back in 2015, Shasta Lake was nearly empty. Dr. Tae Yun Kim is so in touch with nature that she always expressed her sadness when she saw it. She said that her heart was hurting because the land was suffering.

Dr. Kim prayed for the rain to stop the drought, put snow on the mountains and refill the lakes.

Since then, it has rained so much!

There are so many benefits from the rain…

And now, look at Shasta Lake and Mt. Shasta!


This shows the power of prayer.

When I was growing up, even though I grew up Catholic, I didn’t really understand praying. I usually prayed to God and asked Him why my life was the way it was, why I didn’t feel loved, why I was miserable.

Through Dr. Tae Yun Kim‘s teachings, I have learned about praying and talking to God, not complaining or whining, but to give thanks and to ask for God’s help.

Now we are all praying for Sunshine!! We love the rain and all the blessings it brings…and now we are ready for the blessings of the Sun!

Imagine the power of prayer if we all pray for good things to happen in our lives and with the people around us.

Check it out… say a prayer and see what happens!

He Can Do, She Can Do, Why Not Me!


The Beauty of Morning Fog

March 14, 2017

Just wanted to share some photos I took this morning…

When I saw this view, it looked like a painting to me… The “steeple” and the willowy trees against the fog with the mountains in the distance…

This scene seemed mysterious to me… An old barn in a pasture… The fog differentiating the different distances of the trees….

I love low flying clouds against a mountain…. Makes me feel like I’m in ancient Korea….(of course not with all the power lines 😎)

This one reminds me of a lesson that Great Grandmaster Tae Yun Kim teaches… That no matter how cloudy or foggy it may be, the sun is there, shining brightly, waiting for the right moment to break through the clouds.

In our lives, sometimes our situations may seem dark and cloudy… But Dr. Tae Yun Kim explains that we all have the power within us. It’s our choice what we do in our lives. If things don’t seem to be going right, maintain a positive attitude and you will see how you can be in control of your life. Don’t let your environment dominate you.

Have a wonderful day!

The Secret to Being Happy!

July 17, 2012

It’s really easy!

Great Grandmaster Dr. Tae Yun Kim is my teacher.  I talk about her a lot because she really has impacted my life, changed it in so many ways.

I used to be so discontented with my life, with who I was, with everything around me.  In college, my best friend (Jewish guy) called me a kvetch…that’s someone who complains a lot.

I complained a lot because I was Just Not Happy.

I could always find reasons why I should cry… and I did,… often.  But no one knew it.

I didn’t like to feel this way.  But there was something unsettled inside of me…something that I had felt for my entire life…

Then I found Jung SuWon Martial Art Academy and Great Grandmaster Dr. Tae Yun Kim.

Manna from Heaven!!!

After I had been training for several months, I had the opportunity to meet with Great Grandmaster Kim personally.

I shared about how I felt inside and do you know what Great Grandmaster Kim suggested for me to do?


I thought…but how can I really smile if I don’t feel happy inside?

Just do it…practice it…and soon, you WILL feel it, is what Great Grandmaster told me!

It’s like when you do something over and over again…repetition…then it becomes a part of you.  A reflex.  You don’t have to think about it… you just do it!

Later I learned, also from Great Grandmaster Kim, that when you smile and project a positive mental attitude, you ATTRACT the same energy back to you!  Like Attracts Like…Energy Attracts Energy!  (the same is true on the opposite end of the scale… if you project negative energy, you will attract negative energy to you!)

So smiling just multiplied the positive energy coming from inside of me and coming to me from outside sources.

And you know what?  It happened!  I felt, for the first time in my life, a true feeling of peace and happiness coming from within me.

I am thankful to Great Grandmaster Dr. Tae Yun Kim, for teaching me how to be truly happy in my life!!
