Hello, my name is Raquel Lucero from Albuquerque, New Mexico. I have been married to Ernest Lucero for 21 years. Together we have 3 beautiful children. James, Aaron and Alyssa. I started my positive and beautiful journey with Reiki May 14, 2016. It has been such an enlightening and wonderful experience for me. I am very proud to say I have grown in every aspect. Reiki has been one of the best things that have come into my life. As it has been said, “You don’t find Reiki, Reiki finds you”.
I definitely believe this. Reiki came into my life of some really big crossroads. At the time my husband and I decided to quit our full-time jobs and open a coffee shop. That didn’t pan out for various reasons. So here I am at my crossroads. I had been in the medical field prior to the coffee shop for 22 years.
The last 5 to 7 years I knew there was more out there for me to achieve. But what was that? I thought about it often. Prayed for a sign, any sign.
Do I go back into the medical field, where I could easily get a job? I wanted more. I wanted to give more, help more,be more. Around this time I also had a facebook group focused on positivity.
Sarah Nolan, Master Teacher was a member. She had posted about holding a free meditation for prosperity. I had recently been looking into meditation. I decided to take her up on her offer. I was really excited for the meditation. In fact, I got my husband to participate also. I had no clue this meditation would lead me to Reiki. When Sarah explained how her course works, I lit up. I felt it. My prayer was answered, My husband encouraged me to take Sarah’s Reiki course. I was hesitant at first.
Both my husband and myself were unemployed at the time, but my husband knew how much I wanted this. He could see it. So, I signed up for Sarah’s course. I did it! While in the back of my head were thoughts of how is this going to be paid. I left it to the Universe, it will happen one way or another. I couldn’t tell you how happy I was. Reiki was me. Reiki came to me. I was going to put my all into this new found love of Reiki. I wanted to practice Reiki. It was everything I wanted to do.
So, I started my journey and became certified Reiki Level 1 practitioner May 14, 2016. On August 15,2016 I received my Reiki Level 2 practitioner’s certification. It has been a lot of growing , a lot of healing not just for other’s but for myself included. Here I am today, November 12, 2016.
I have started practicing Reiki on a regular basis. I have also started a Reiki page on Facebook, Enlightenment- The Element of Reiki. It brings me much joy to share my knowledge about Reiki through there. I have met some wonderful people along this journey. All with different question’s regarding Reiki, but with one goal in mind. “I want to feel better”.
So, I definitely believe that “you don’t find Reiki, Reiki finds you”. I am living proof of that! Sarah was brought into my life for that specific reason. I continue to work towards one day receiving my Master/ Teacher certification. Just remember, always believe in your future and it will be bright.
