My name is Carol Warnes. I was born on the Lammas in 1959 and mainly grew up in Norfolk. UK. I did not go out looking for Reiki, it came to me. I didn't even know what it was. It came to me in a very Special way, this is the only way I can describe it.
I was out one day and found this lovely shop which is sadly gone now. The shop was amazing, like a little cavern, so calm and so peaceful. I got interested in the crystals, books (which I had not read for years) the relaxation music and meditation Cd's. I also became very friendly with the owners there, to which I am very grateful for as they are the beginning of this wonderful journey.
About two years prior to all this a Lady telephoned me by accident hoping to speak to another lady, but it was wrong number. It was really funny, we got chatting as though we knew each other. She told me she did Reflexology. She said if she was my way she would come and give me a treatment. We exchanged phone numbers.
Then, that Boxing Day, this lady rang to wish my family a Merry Christmas. We chatted for at least an hour. It was though we had always known each other. She told me she was a Western Reiki Master/Teacher. Cutting a very long wonderful story short, I have been doing Reiki for a number of years now, and it was one of the best things that have happened to me. I became a Reiki Master/Teacher on the 7th July 2007 (07/07/07). Since my first Reiki Attunement my life pathway changed and over the last few years my personal growth has been amazing. This wonderful energy has helped me to develop calmness and stillness and has helped me to recognise compassion for other people's needs.
I have met many wonderful people on this very exciting journey and I have realised how powerful the Reiki energy really is and how rewarding life can be as a Practitioner/Teacher
