Renae Bailey - Reiki Master
My journey into Reiki began about 20 years ago, when I received my first Reiki treatment. During that treatment, I experienced a profound sense of having found what had been missing. I knew instantly, that Reiki was going to be a permanent part of my life.
I undertook my Level 1 Attunements not long after, and enjoyed treating friends and family. In early 1999, I traveled to Australia to do my Level 2 Attunements with Tibetan-Usui Reiki Master Annie Kropman.
After that, for a while, life just kinda got busy. I worked at a couple of different vocations, both indoors and out. But at the end of the day, I believe you always end up where you are meant to. A series of synchronous events led me to find a local Reiki Master in 2011 while I was pregnant with my son. I undertook my Reiki Master/Teacher training in March of that year with Kathy Valler-Wahrlich, a Traditional Reiki Master.
I then devoted 2 years full time to raising my son. Reiki remained a large part of my life though, with daily self treatments and lots of Reiki hugs with family and sessions for friends. As my son has grown, it has been amazing to witness first hand, how open children can be to Reiki energy.
The learning for me, is ongoing, as my journey continues to unfold. In March 2015, I managed to reconnect with Annie, and have been blessed to receive attunements as a Tibetan-Usui Reiki Master/Teacher. I find this energy to be soft, yet powerful and refined. It resonates well within me, and is the energy I use in my sessions and workshops.
