Shellee Rae, author, “unTeacher,” and healer, has been working with people and supporting them in the healing process since 1998 when she became a Reiki Master. Subsequently, she trained to the master level in many other energy healing modalities, and became certified in numerous body-centered therapies. She also became a Deeksha giver in India in 2006.
In January of 2008, Shellee Rae awakened to a voice that said, “It’s time to write!” After the third visit from the voice, she wrote her first book, Suffering ~ A Path of Awakening: Dissolving the Pain of Incest, Abuse, Addiction and Depression. Suffering takes the reader on a 39-year journey through Shellee Rae’s life, from her childhood years as a victim of sexual abuse, through lengthy addictions to alcohol and drugs, into deep depression, and ultimately to the doors of death. In 1997, a suicide attempt brought Shellee Rae into 12-step recovery, sobriety, and emotional healing. After many encounters with several spiritual paths, teachers, and healing methods, in 2008, her kundalini spontaneously awakened and then months later she also experienced an embodied awakening. Since that time, she has written numerous books and has been guiding people in their own awakening process by gently pointing to the truth of who they are from the depths of her own realization.
One year after Shellee Rae’s awakening, she was out hiking and heard a word whisper within her, ‘Aya…’. She repeated it over and over until she returned home to research it. Through magical circumstances, Shellee Rae participated in her first Sacred Ceremony shortly thereafter. During her third ceremony, the plant medicine whispered to her, “You are a medicine bearer.” Following that guidance, she did a year of work with the Santo Daime Church, while also working with three other medicine people, including a Shipibo-trained facilitator.
Shellee Rae’s work was blessed by her initial mentor, and she received her altar in 2012. With the support of many skilled assistants, she has been guiding ceremony ever since. Sacred Ceremony often accelerates the shedding of that which hinders the awareness of your Divine Nature. Working with this plant teacher has been a potent accelerant to the work Shellee Rae has been doing since 1998.
