In this episode, we delve into the personal story of Carolina’s journey from infertility to motherhood. Carolina shares her story of struggling with negative pregnancy tests and how she saw signs from the universe that led her to explore alternative healing methods like Reiki.
After hearing from two people in one week about Reiki, Carolina felt it was time to let go of her traditional healing methods and give Reiki a try. She went into her first Reiki session with a clear intention of what she wanted and trusted the Reiki master wholeheartedly, feeling like she had nothing to lose.
Carolina talks about how she had already come to terms with the idea of a life without a baby, but deep down, she really wanted to have a child with her partner. Reiki was the healing method that spoke to her, and she felt that it was the right choice for her.
One month after her first Reiki session, Carolina tested positive for pregnancy with Ollie, the first Reiki baby. Ollie has become her whole life, and Carolina shares how her experience with Reiki changed her life forever.

Hi, I’m Carolina, your podcast host and expert wound healer. Over the past five years, I’ve served over 500 women to remove physical blockages in their bodies. We achieve this with Reiki. I believe healing doesn’t have to be done alone, nor should it be. We will hear stories of healing methods to heal with and guest speakers covering taboo topics you won’t hear anywhere else.
Let’s continue this journey of wound healing together.
Hi, I am Caroline. You’re Ricky, master in Womb Healer. Before we get started today, please take a moment to leave us a five star rating review, and we’re so excited that you’re a loyal listener and we’re so grateful for you. Let’s dive in. Today’s podcast is super special. It’s my personal story, so how I went from negative pregnancy tests to having a baby with.
So let’s start. Let’s crank it back up 2014. My dad had passed away in April of 2014. Three days later, after he died, my abuela died, which was his dad. It was a shock to all of us. My dad was passing, and then my abuela was older. He was in his nineties, but for them to have died so close together was very, Bizarre and shocking for us.
Fast forward, I get married that December, the following April to the same week, the anniversary of my dad’s death and my abuelo’s death. My horse passes away, and this is not any ordinary horse. This is Cheyenne. She was my heart horse. She was my soulmate. When I moved to Nebraska in 2012, I started to take horse riding lessons as a way to help with not knowing anyone and transitioning to a state where I was basically alone.
So this, I got this horse and she became my life. And then I met Ryan, my husband, and together that was like my stability, my safety, my life. But then when my dad passed, you know this horse. Became my emotional support. She was so grounding for me. And every time I was upset, I would go to the barn and I would ride her, or I would groom her and I would just cry into her main and just sit with her.
And this horse was perfection. She wasn’t walking Angel on earth, so to have lost her, in addition to my abuelo and my dad, it was. A very dark time in my life. I had started grief therapy and I was doing all the traditional ways of healing that are mainstream, which was talk therapy. I wasn’t on any antidepressants.
Pass forward, we’re ready to start a family. I get my i u D out and we’re not getting pregnant. It didn’t go the way I thought it would and. , I thought it would be, we have sex and we would get pregnant and it would be fine, but the negative pregnancy tests were devastating every single month, and I was pissed.
I was like, I need something to go my way. This is really fucked up. Like why is this not working out? I was really mad. So, How did I actually go from negative pregnancy tests to having a baby with Ricky? My grief therapist at this point said, listen, we’re a year and a half in and you’re not making enough progress.
You either need to get on medication or you need to. Try Reiki because like you’re still anxious, you’re still like, you need to move forward. How can we move you forward? Because I was done. I was so ready to be done, being sad, and it wasn’t like I’m pretty aggressive at most things than I do. I’m a go-getter.
I want to get results, and I’m like, I’m doing the things. I’m here with you weekly. Why is this shit not getting better? Why am I still sad? And I think it’s really hard to grasp. The things when it’s so much, even if a year and a half passes and I had a high performing job and I was high performer at that demanding job and I was a newly we, and I’m trying to do these things, but I was pure chaos.
I was like a hurricane on wheels and I didn’t know anything about grounding. I didn’t know anything about stress. I didn’t know anything about like life management. I wanna do the next thing on the list cuz I was all about bucket lists and I was all about like doing what you’re supposed to do because I thought I took advice from the people who, whom I thought were successful or I wanted to be like, and that included Find a partner, get married, have a baby, cuz that was the next step.
And that same week that the therapist said you should get. I went to Crystal Shop where there was a medium. Her name’s Kelly Miller here at Omaha, and at this point there was a key part of this story that is a little, little side piece. It was during this time I was on medical leave for my job at this specific moment that week.
I was in the middle of a medical leave. I had suffered concussion. Um, prior to this, I fell off my second horse bucks Mosby, and I was put on medical leave. I couldn’t drive and I couldn’t watch tv. My memory wasn’t coming back, so it was a very chaotic time. There was a lot going on. So when I went to this like store, I was like, I was like, do you have any crystals for a concuss?
I need to heal my concussion. I’m gonna get back on my horse. I thought I, the most immediate thing was to heal the concussion. And she said, no, your sacral plexus chakra is walked. Your throat chakra is blocked. You need reiki, you don’t need any crystals. And I was like, okay. Then, so I went and got Ricky at the person’s office that my therapist recommended.
So I, at this point, I did believe in science from the universe, and I was in the beginning of my spiritual awakening. So two people in one week told me to get Ricky. I listened because my dad told me, if you’re hearing something from two different spots in your life, then you should pay attention. And at this point, I was ready.
I mean, I was already healing in the traditional ways. I was ready to let go of this funk. I was ready to let go of the anchor. I was ready to let go of this sadness. So I went into this lady. Reiki session with intention that I wanted to clearly just let go of all of this heaviness. I wanted to have a baby and was ready to move forward because I had not been able to move forward in talk therapy.
So I trusted this lady wholeheartedly. She was like a fairy godmother cuz I had nothing to lose. I mean, I was already feeling broken. I was already feeling lost, and I was a hundred percent like ready to try. This, if two people recommended it, and it was two people I highly respected, why not try it? So I had come to the terms also on the way there.
The conversation I was having with my husband was, I’m okay if we don’t have a baby, but I really do wanna have a baby with you, but you’re enough for me and we’re enough together. And I had already decided that I didn’t wanna do IVF as a personal choice. So if this didn’t work or if the natural fertility methods didn’t, That life with him was gonna be enough for us or enough for me.
And he said, me too. So when I had that piece that no matter what the outcome was, I became more open. I became more settled in my chest space. So I felt like a hundred percent ready to give this reiki stuff a try. So I went in for the 90 minute reiki session and I saw colors and I felt warms. It was a Reiki massage and this lady specialized in reiki, but also trauma massage, which where she would massage the traumas out of your tissues.
So I got it. I got Ricky, I walked out feeling blissful. My husband picked me. . And then one month after my first Reiki session with this magical reiki master, I was testing positive with my son Oie, and he’s the first Reiki baby, so now he’s my whole life. So that’s how I went from negative pregnancy test to having a baby with Reiki.
I continued to get Reiki my entire time through my pregnancy, even through my birth and postpartum. And eventually I became certified when Ollie was six months. And I decided to offer it as a service at the beginning of my Reiki career for women who were in postpartum. And then it grew full spectrum from fertility, pregnancy, birth, and postpartum.
