What Irena’s clients are saying

Irena performed Reiki on my two dogs, North and Sophia, and I found it to be a very special experience. My dogs aren’t the type of dogs who quickly get used to another person. However, Irena was so gentle and took her time with them both — and that really helped. She has a special touch for reading the dog’s energy and making them feel as comfortable as possible. Both my dogs allowed her to pet and touch them, while she sat down at their level throughout the whole session. Afterwards, my dogs were both very calm and their overall personalities were peaceful and happy. It was an experience that I am glad they had. Irena knows how to properly handle dogs and is talented with Reiki. I would recommend her services to anyone with pets (not just dogs!)


Thank you Irena for a wonderful Reiki session with my Rottweiler Onyx. The biggest difference I noticed is that his digestion after was much better than before. Normally he regurgitates after eating dinner and his stomach always rumbles really loudly all night. After the Reiki session, he didn’t have any problems after dinner and his stomach was quiet all night. I noticed that these symptoms were better for about 3 days after his session. I also noticed that after I picked him up from his session he was calmer than normal. It was overall a wonderful experience for him (and me) and I was very happy with the results.


I was surprised how mellow JD got as he is usually like a bull in a china shop. After his treatment he was so relaxed and content, it was great to see him like that. I will definitely be getting him more Reiki sessions!


Reverend Carrie-Ann Baron, SCM

SolePath Instructor through the White Light Metaphysical Institute

Rev. Carrie-Ann’s SolePath is Spiritual Warrior and Spiritual Balance. Her core values include integrity, dedication and psychic ability, and her core energies are going with the flow and living with grace.

She specializes in helping others achieve a natural state of ease and happiness by connecting to their higher selves, the spirit of others, and the non-physical elements in this world. Rev. Carrie-Ann’s work focuses on assisting her clients in releasing lifetimes of inner resistance and overcoming self-doubt and unworthiness so that they can discover their unique path for expansion and manifestation. 

Rev. Carrie-Ann is a mentor, teacher, trainer, and faculty member who leads people through the ground-breaking work of the SolePath Foundations Program, which is the prerequisite to all SolePath Certification Programs. This role aligns wonderfully with her governing number of 9, which reflects her talents as a trusted advisor who experiences great joy from providing guidance to others.

Founder of the WhiteLight Metaphysical Centre, Rev. Carrie-Ann has spent close to 30 years studying and exploring human behaviour, including topics such as emotional fear and personality profiles. She has also interviewed over 100 thought leaders and experts on her podcast series to garner experiential wisdom in order to guide others in finding the answers they seek.

Rev. Carrie-Ann is a Claircognizant Intuitive, and her gifts and talents include guiding others to tap into their intrinsic value, purpose, and direction by helping them connect with their higher selves and the intangible elements of this world including our Angels and Non-Physical Guides.

What Carrie-Ann’s clients are saying

I sought out Rev. Carrie-Ann to help me overcome certain obstacles in my business. I never imagined that going through this process would make such a huge difference in my personal life as well. She helped me understand how I interact with the world. This is a life-changer, as I can now recognize where I shine with immense joy and where I need to grow. I am so grateful for her guidance.


For me the Foundations program was so, so valuable. With Rev. Carrie-Ann asked encouraging questions and directing the conversations so that we always went deeper with our own experience. Also, she loves and believes in the material—it has worked wonders in her own life. There is so much more to SolePath than we see in our Light and DarkPaths. It is multi-dimensional and deeper than it appears. To explore these depths, I highly recommend the SolePath Foundations training.


Sabotage was huge for me. After going through this program, it made my awareness more acute and how to snap out of it fast was beneficial to me. It has empowered me in my life and with others.
