The Law of Attraction and This Week

Published February 25, 2016 by mandyhieatt

This week has been a week from hell and at one point I was sure that it was only going to get worse. Lately it seems like the harder I try the harder things have been getting. And I have been on the verge of tears for the better part of a month now but this week has been especially bad. Then today as I was doing my Reiki meditation a thought came to me and I had one of those “Ah Ha!” moments.

I was focusing on my lack of things and not on the joy and feelings of having the things I desired (such as money, lets be honest). And the more I noticed that I didn’t have money and wasn’t making money the less money I was making and the less I had. I thought I was being positive and thinking about things in the right manner but I wasn’t. I only was thinking the good thoughts when I noticed that I didn’t have which put my mindset in a state of lack and no matter what thoughts I was trying to force I was still in a state of lack. And from experience I know that a state of lack will only bring on more lack which will only bring on more, so on and so forth. It really is a hard cycle for me to break.

However, today no matter what kind of bad news I received I was coming from a place of love, joy, and gratitude. When I noticed something that I didn’t want I stopped myself and thought “What is it that you really do want Mandy?” So I started becoming clear on many things in my life, including how I have been working myself and my businesses. I realized that I no longer want to work and not see any monetary benefits come from it, that I need to follow my true passions in life, and give my 11o% to my goals. Which means that some of the things that I have been doing I am going to have to let go because they are no longer working in my life. The transition is going to be hard because I do not like change when that change is subtracting something from my life. However, in the end I know that I will be much happier refocusing my life.

So as I go through and make these changes you will notice a change in how I do things. I am not sure that I want to continue my daily readings as these take energy that although my followers do love I am not receiving any other benefit from. I will still continue doing my weekly readings but may start doing those in video format and providing a link to my YouTube page. I am going to start working hard at promoting my accounting business as I know that there is a great need for that and I have a passion for helping small business owners. I will also work hard at promoting my Reiki/Readings business as healing others and providing guidance is a gift that I must share with the world and also balance myself out. The other things I do may take a back seat for a while until I can prove that I can be successful in these two areas. I will still do my workouts and post those on my facebook page and maybe even start sharing them here.

My life needs to be filled with love, joy, and gratitude and that has been missing lately and I am working on getting that back. Working on that today I have several people that are wanting to come see me Friday for readings and/or chakra balancing and a couple of appointments Saturday for taxes. Proof that the Law of Attraction works when you allow it to and don’t block your own success.

I appreciate all of my followers and any feedback you have. May you be blessed with my joy and love in your life!

How Reiki has helped my Fibromyalgia

Published February 12, 2016 by mandyhieatt

Lets start with my adventure with fibromyalgia. In 2007 I was going to school full-time, part of the student council, member of the choir, member of a underprivileged student program, math and business tutor, and working overnights at a motel full-time. For months I felt tired and had body aches all over that didn’t get better with ibuprofen. Honestly I thought it was because I was trying to do too much and was burnt out.

After feeling so horrible for months and things just getting worse and worse I finally went to my doctor. She ran a series of test, which all came back good, and then she finally did what is called the touch test. For this test to be positive 11 of the 17 points they palpate have to be sensitive, well I had 16. The one my doctor was sure would have a reaction didn’t. After the diagnosis we tried a variety of medications to try and get the pain manageable. However, if the medications did work they had such horrible side effects that I didn’t want to take them. The pain was better than what was happening because of the medications.

Then in 2008 one of my closest friends suggested I look into Reiki to help with my fibro. I had absolutely no idea what Reiki was and was skeptical. So I researched it and it still sounded like fluff… serious bullshit fluff. Although I did (and still do) believe in the ability of humans to transfer energy between each other it was hard for me to understand that universal energy could pass-through one person into another. As I was studying Reiki, my husband and I went to an event in Des Moines, Iowa and I got to experience Reiki for the first time. It wasn’t a full session but the results amazed. The Reiki provider worked on my back between my shoulder blades, my lower back, and my right knee. For about 2 weeks afterwards I felt great. My pain was reduced to the point I almost felt normal again.

After that experience I decided that I needed to be able to do this on my self on a regular basis, not having to depend on anyone else to provide this service to me. It was then that the universe spoke to me and provided me with the answer I was looking for. The local community college (Southeaster Community College, West Burlington, IA) was offering a Level I Usui Reiki Course at the Massage Therapy School. Even though the course description was obviously geared towards massage therapists I still decided I wanted to take it. My wonderful husband paid for me to take this intense 3 day course. I loved every moment of it and exchanged Reiki with the other students that were there. It was amazing and I felt better for weeks afterwards. As part of the course it was suggested that we each practice Reiki either on a family member or ourselves for 30 consecutive days after the attunement and I did just that. However, since I felt so good after that 30 days I stopped doing Reiki on myself because I didn’t think I needed it any more, how naive I was.

Fast forward to September 2012 and my fibro was once again bad even though I was exercising and trying to eat healthy. I was frustrated and felt like my will was being broken by the universe. Then I see that one of my good friends was a Reiki Master and offering a class but this class was too far for me to drive to, so I sent her a message asking her what it would cost for her to come down to my house and teach me. After settling on the price and the class date I felt a sense of relief. Then on October 12, 2012 I received my Level II Usui Reiki attunement.

Even though I didn’t practice daily I was practicing more regularly and it did help. Then I found out that we were going to move to southern Kentucky in late January of 2013 and knew that if I wanted my friend to do my ART and Master attunements I had to get them in quick. So in March of 2013 we did the class and she attuned me. Now during our move and subsequent house hunt it was very hard for me to practice daily but I did practice as often as I could. I noticed that the more I practiced my Reiki the stronger it seemed to get and the better I felt. So after we bought our current house and got mostly settled in I started doing daily Reiki.

Most of the time my daily Reiki practice is me sending Reiki to others, situations, and my goals that I have written down in my Reiki notebook and it may only take 10-15 minutes. I have found that even though I am not directly sending Reiki to myself, since the energy flows through me it heals me. Now between exercise, diet, and Reiki my bad days now are what I used to call good days and my good days are awesome. I can do almost as much as I was once able to do and life has it vigor back. My fibro is still a part of my daily life and as I sit here typing this blog it is snowing here and I feel it. However, I will still get up and get my workout done and then get to working on my accounting business. I don’t let days like today stop me any more.

Reiki has saved my life and my quality of life and for that I will ever be grateful!

Good evening everyone!

Other than my daily postings what other things would you guys like to see? Book reviews? Workout reviews? Food reviews? Cooking attempts? Accounting information? Let me know because I want to provide you with content that you enjoy.

My Thanksgiving 2015

Published November 28, 2015 by mandyhieatt

Thanksgiving this year was different than past years and yet was very enjoyable. Since my grandma recently had surgery my husband and I decided that we would go up to their house and cook for them but just keep it to the 4 humans and 2 fur babies.

Lunch consisted of one really good turkey with mashed potatoes, uber sticky sweet candied yams, and deviled eggs.  A lot less than I would usually make. We all sat and enjoyed lunch together and worked on convincing Pookie and Cat Butt that it was not for them. However Pookie did get a little treat after we were all done.

For supper Larry and I decided to do something different… We (ok, it was completely Larry) cooked a wonderful Prime Rib for supper. With it we had leftover mashed potatoes and deviled eggs but also made some green beans to go with it.

I really enjoyed the time spent with my grandparents, my husband, and our fur babies. Spending time with loved ones in a quiet setting is truly one of my favorite things in the world.

Another highlight of the trip happened on Wednesday night when I went up to my best friend Nicole’s house and taught her and her family the joy and fun of Dungeons & Dragons. Even managed to get her husband in on the action. What better way for a family to spend game night?!?! No sitting in front of a TV and not really thinking but sitting around the same table and having to critically think about what they want to do next.

Needless to say I was very busy the past few days and others things had my attention that I felt were more important. So if you have been wondering were my daily card reading have been please know that although I love doing them and love helping you guys my family will always come first. It is my deepest hope that each of you had the chance to spend the day with those you love and had a wonderful day. 🙂

All of Me…

Published November 12, 2015 by mandyhieatt

Recently it came to my attention that I keep myself very segmented and don’t allow most people to see all of me. After thinking on this idea for a few days I realized how true that is. I have my alternative side – the side that does readings, Reiki, Shamanistic healings, medium readings, and is pagan. I have my home side – the part of me that cooks, cleans, and is domesticated as much as I will ever be. There is the entrepreneur side of me – the side that does Beachbody, Younique, Hidden Healings, and Hieatt Accounting, Inc. Then there is the “normal” public side of me – the part that the public sees, that does accounting, fits in, and says nothing to make other suspect of the other sides.

When pondering this idea I realized that all of those parts come together to make the whole, the whole person that my husband fell in love with and thinks is pretty great. It was pointed out that by not allowing everyone to see all sides of me I am actually giving them a false sense of who I am, so when they see another side of me they are shocked and surprised and even decide to not be my friend. And who’s fault is this? Mine. Because I don’t like to allow others to see all of me because of past hurts a fears.

I am currently working on bringing all my different aspects together and it has been interesting, especially in my social media life. I have been unfriended I don’t know how many times because all of a sudden after liking me for a while a person decides that I am not worth being their friend any more. And I respect that but it doesn’t really change who I am but just showing you more of who I am. And this process is very scary for me. I fear that people will have information to take advantage of me and hurt me, exactly like what happened throughout my entire childhood. Yes, I want people to like and trust me and maybe that is a bad thing but honestly who doesn’t? I also am tired of people being surprised when they find a different aspect of me that they had never seen before. If they know all of me up front then there won’t be the butt-hurt feelings that come with surprises.

So going forward I am going to try to be more upfront about who I am with the hopes that the new people that come into my life will like what they see and old friends will get to know me better.

My Thoughts on the Song “The Hardest Thing”

Published October 27, 2014 by mandyhieatt

The other day I was driving in my car and over the radio the song “The Hardest Thing” by 98 Degrees came on. Listening to the song I became irritated. Upon initial listening it sounds like a sad love song but in reality it is about a guy that cheated on his girl friend and then has second thoughts about what he has done. In the end he goes back to the unknowing girlfriend and says he’s going to pretend he doesn’t care for the other girl.

Ok if the guy in the song truly cared about the girlfriend in the first place he would have never once thought about another girl. Obviously it was time for this guy to move on. He may have been happier with the other girl. If someone’s heart can be stolen then it was never really there anymore. I can speak on this from personal experience.

When I met my husband I was engaged to someone else. Now I never cheated but my thoughts were with my now husband. All I could think about was Larry. When I realized this was more than just a crush out of frustration coming from the relationship I was in I simply left. Never cheated, just walked away and never looked back. There are other circumstances that I won’t get into right now but once my heart was gone so was I. And it was the best decision I made. I am happily married for nearly 6 years and we have been together for nearly 10 years.

So when I actually listened to the song “The Hardest Thing” I got to thinking about what happened in my life and got irritated. If you can cheat on the person you are with then it is time to leave. And although it may be hard to end a relationship it is far worse to cheat and go back. Because I can promise you that eventually your indiscretions will come to light and that relationship will end anyways. On the other side of that coin. If you find out that your partner has cheated on you do not take that person back. Because the reality is they may love you but they are no longer in love with you and it is time for everyone to move on.

Thank you for reading my rant. Hope you have a great day! 🙂
