Born in different countries yet resembling each other so much,
two women walked the path of life that was surprisingly similar.
A baby girl was born in a small rural village of Jura in France.
Her name is Colette.
Another baby was born on the outskirt of Seoul, Korea.
She is Sung-mi.
Colette and Sung-mi wanted to live normal lives like any other
women, but they couldn't because of visions and voices from
deities which they have experienced since they were very young.
They thought this was their divine punishments.
After meeting each other at the 2014 International Shamanism
Festival in France, Colette and Sung-mi realized that their special
abilities could be something meaningful: they are gifts given
from God to comfort and soothe the pain of other people.
Finally, Colette and Sung-mi accepted their fates as shamans and
began their spiritual journey.
