After graduating from Clark Atlanta University in 2010—followed by a decade of moving from city to city in various sales roles for Nestle—Simone Brownlow made the decision to plant her roots where it all began for her, the Bay Area. The return home led to a series of unfortunate events that were the catalyst for her journey into energy healing.
Plagued by panic attacks, anxiety, and other heavy feelings that can accompany major transitions, she sought out therapeutic services—both traditional and holistic—to aid in her coping and healing. She was intentional in her search for practitioners of color, which led her to discover how few holistic therapeutic providers there were in her area.
Her exhaustive search led her to Britt Yap of Holomua Healing Arts, where she received Life Coaching and Reiki energy healing. After Simone’s first session, she left feeling lighter and completely at ease—it was that feeling that kept her doing the work. It was that same feeling that motivated her to transition from client to practitioner; she received her Reiki I & II certifications in 2018 from Holomua Healing Arts and went on to receive her Life Coaching certification in 2021.
In January of 2021, Simone launched Energy with Ease, her own Reiki & Life Coaching service. Through Reiki she clears her clients’ energetic blockages and works to heal what hinders them from fulfilling their fullest potential; through Life Coaching she provides the tools to aid in mapping out their path—with her as a guide and accountability partner.
“I’m passionate about helping people of color and people who are going through big life transitions,” Simone said. “Allowing people to return back to themselves, supporting them while they shed old stories and patterns, and witnessing their empowered energetic shifts—that’s what excites me about this healing work.”
