Your own joy should be your #1 priority. It will allow you to show up as your best for those who need and love you.
Your unique brand of weirdness is what allows you to shine bright. Don't let anyone dim you, and especially not yourself.
A peanut butter sandwich, a good book and a day at the beach can reset your whole life.
I'M TANYA RAE
I'm an Intuitive Reiki Master, Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Oracle Reader, Joy & Self-Love Coach & More.
But, that's not what I want to share here. What I want to share here is this, so many of us, feel like we need to box ourselves into one thing. I was one of those people. I chose my career path when I went to college fresh out of high school, and learned too late that I didn't have a passion for traditional teaching (which is what I spent 5 years studying.). I went on to get a second degree in social work, and worked as a youth counselor for a number of years.
But, something always felt just a bit off. While I enjoyed what I did, it wasn't quite the right fit.
Fast forward a couple of years, and I started a health and wellness journey. This is how I became an NTP. And, I thought that was the thing that I was meant to do. But...then I started having serious energy issues, which piqued my interest in energy healing - namely Reiki. It was around that time that I also got very interested in building and using my intuition to help myself and others. Beyond that, I was becoming quite interested in spirituality.
If this story sounds familiar to you, maybe not the same topics, but the hoping from one thing to the next - the point of my sharing is - you are NOT alone.
The truth is, that some of us are meant to be explorers, movers, shakers. I was never meant to focus on only one path for my whole life.
But, I can confidently say that I am here to help others navigate this world that can be confusing at times. I have learned a lot about what it means to live in balance.
And, that is what I am here to teach others.
Because, I truly believe that mind, body and soul balance is the key to unlocking your dream life.
MY REIKI STORY
As mentioned above, I was already an NTP, when I began my Reiki adventure.
In 2020, when the world changed in some way for all of us, I had isolated myself for months.
The only person I interacted with was my husband, for at least 12 weeks. So, when stores started opening up again, I noticed something was happening. I was getting hit with tons of anxiety.
What I realized however, is that I wasn't anxious about being in public. I was feeling anxiety because I was picking up energy from those around me.
This is something that I have done my whole life, but it took being away from people for an extended period to realize it.
So, I decided that I would get Reiki certified. I didn't really know what Reiki was at the time, as I had never even experienced a session from another practitioner. But, there were a lot of other NTP's what had dabbled in energy work - so I had heard of it.
Whenever I asked myself what I was going to do about my energy issues, all I heard in my brain was - "Reiki, Reiki, Reiki."
I was pretty confident that my intuition was correct, Reiki would help me, and it did immensely. What I was not anticipating or expecting was that there would be no turning back.
Now that I am a double certified Reiki Master Teacher, I can't seem to shut up about the benefits of Reiki.
I truly believe that anyone who feels called should become a Reiki I. Practitioner, so that they can self-heal.
