Reiki in my life

Published February 11, 2016 by mandyhieatt

As a Usui Reiki Master and a Kundalini Reiki Master I use Reiki energy every day in various areas of my life and it has helped me in so many ways. Every day I am grateful that I found Reiki and that I have had the wonderful Masters I have had. I do not know where I would be if I had not found Reiki.

So lets go to the beginning… Back in 2008 after fighting with my fibromyalgia for about a year a friend of mine had told me that I should look into Reiki as she felt it would help with my symptoms. I couldn’t find anyone that offered the Reiki service but found a class that would teach me to perform Reiki and so I took that class. I loved that class and enjoyed meeting all the other people in that class. After that class I was Level I attuned and started my journey of self-Reiki.

For the first 30 days after my first attunement I did Reiki on myself for at least 45 minutes, usually right before bed because I would be super tired afterwards. At the end of the 30 days I stopped and actually thought about how I was feeling and it was so much better than I had felt in over a year. The daily pain was manageable and I was once again able to do some of the simple tasks that had become too hard. Once again I was able to keep up on my homework without it causing a major flare up and the spiral downwards that comes with a flare up. Everyone around me noticed.

It is my belief that since my Level I Master was a massage therapist that in her mind she could only see the physical abilities of Reiki and not the other areas that Reiki energy can help.  Then in 2012 I found out a very good friend of mine was also a Reiki Master. This friend follows more closely to my spiritual beliefs and so it was super easy for me to take her Level II class. It was here that she opened my eyes to all that Reiki can do. And it is after her class that I started using Reiki in all areas of my life to make improvements.

This dear friend was who also provided me with my Usui ART and Master training. Once I received those trainings I was able to see fully all that Reiki energy can do and knew that I wanted to make this not only a way of life but also share it with others. It brings me much joy being able to share Reiki with others and show them that there are natural ways to make improvements to their lives. It’s not always easy however it is always worth it.

In 2013 my husband and I moved to southern Kentucky and through a group I was in meet this wonderful young woman and felt an instant connection with her. She was offering a class in Kundalini Reiki and my soul knew that I needed to take this course to further my Reiki studies. (Yes, there are different forms of Reiki and it is my feeling that all are valid and each has its own energy. There will be others that disagree with me and I respect their opinion and ask that they respect mine.) During this course I noticed that the Kundalini energy that had been in my root chakra was released and was flowing through my entire body. This energy was foreign and exciting to me and I spent the next several weeks allowing my body to adjust to this new energy.

When it comes down to it in the end Reiki in the forms I am skilled in has saved my life. My fibromyaglia is now at a point that most days you wouldn’t even know there was anything wrong with me. My bad days are now like my good days used to be and my good days are awesome. Reiki has also helped me deal with the emotional abuse I dealt with from my mother and subsequent ex’s. I have been able to heal myself on so many different levels. I have even used Reiki in my spiritual work to help boost the energy needed. I use Reiki to help me with my issues with success and money as well as with improving my marriage. As long as your intentions are good there is nothing Reiki can’t help with.

Every day I am grateful that I found Reiki because of how much my life has improved since finding this energy. And it is my goal to share Reiki energy with the world. Thank you so much for having read this far. I know I went on forever. So please know that if you have read this far you have gotten to the point that you will receive Reiki energy from me. Hope you have a great day, evening, night, and life!

A Small Break

Published February 8, 2016 by mandyhieatt

Good evening everyone!

Hope this finds you in good health and good spirits. I just wanted to drop a little note here and say that I am needing a small break from my daily readings. Right now I am fighting extreme exhaustion from my fibromyalgia and just need to be able to get through this. So for the remainder of this week I am going to take a break from my daily postings.

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.

Thanks for bearing with me.

There is a practical approach to a seemingly unsolvable problem; if you take this tack, it will have fantastic results. Look at how you can follow the letter of the law, so to speak, and yet be innovative and clever in your approach. Put your own needs first and do not be a victim in this situation. There is a way out, and it involves using your wits and wiles, and being aware that it is right and fair for you to do so when you have so much at stake! Using the gifts of the Earth and of Gaia, of air and water, for practical ends with magickal results. Affinity with rowan-wood.

Today is about using the proper communication skills to change a undesirable situation. And truth be told, most likely it was the lack of communication that caused the issue in the first place. I know that when I don’t keep my communication skills in check me and my husband will be saying the exact same thing but will be fighting because we are not communicating. Everything in life rests your ability to properly communicate.

The book “Crucial Conversations: How to Talk When Stakes are High” by Grenny, Patterson, and McMillan explains that when communications break down people will go “silent or violent,” meaning that they will either clam up and stop speaking or they will start with the yelling. Think about when you are in an argument, I bet you do one of these things. When the break down of communication has reached this point it is important to make the other person feel safe in the conversation and this can be done quickly by accepting guilt and apologizing. It doesn’t matter if you’re right or wrong, this simple act will help bring the other person back to the point of being able to communicate. For more detailed description of how to create safety please get this book. It did save my marriage.

If you are not good at communicating then do some personal development and develop that skill. Because this is a skill that you will use the rest of your life. Stop and think about how better communication can solve the problems you are facing right now. If all parties involved could sit down and have a rational discussion without anyone getting upset to the point of “silence or violence” then things could be solved, and that is up to you to accomplish.

Today improve your communication skills to solve your problems.

The Lady Grain

A time when dreams and wishes are quickly and easily realized. Fertility is accentuated, and your attractiveness and personal beauty are appreciated and commented on. Throw wide open your heart and experience the joy of feeling. Beautiful emotions, warm friendships, loving relationships. Displays of love – extravagant love. New projects and ideas. Self-love grows, and attracts others to you when Grain is with you.

Lucy Cavendish

What a wonderful day for opening your heart to the beauty around you and within you. It is when you are able to find the beauty in all things that all things seem to become better. And who doesn’t want things to become better? Also, when you notice the beauty in all things around you others will notice your beauty which, lets be honest here, will make you feel good about yourself. When you are complimented accept it with gratitude and don’t be one of those assholes that is down on yourself.

Today is also a good day to start a new project that you have been thinking about starting. Grian is here to help you with the initial start so that you can keep the momentum going and making the new project the best it could possibly be. She does warn that you have to have the right mindset to ensure success because she is just here to get you started not to keep you going. And this is where the Law of Attraction comes into play. Use the Law of Attraction to keep your momentum going by believing that you have already accomplished your goals. Feel now what it would feel like to have your goals accomplished. Enjoy those feelings because that is what the universe goes off of… your feelings.

Today enjoy the beauty around you and start the new project with love and joy in your heart.

Oracle of the Dragonfae

Lady Titania

Bringing people together in life-changing, sacred and meaningful gatherings; mothering others joyously; being greater than you appear to be; understanding the need for joy and happiness and gatherings that delight in the company of soul mates; family agreements and pacts that are reinforced through celebration; coming together in community with friends. Finding your soul family. Being protected and nurtured by friends and soul-family.

Lucy Cavendish

Today is all about finding joy all around you, especially in family. And there is a reminder here that family has very little to do with blood and have everything to do with love. Sometimes the best family is the one you make for yourself. Close friends end up being better family than a cousin or even a sibling. Accepting this fact of life and finding joy in it is liberating and soul lifting.

The easiest way to find joy is to go out a make it. Go out with your family and friends and have some fun. Create joy all around you and the world will seem like a much better place. You make the world a better place when you create joy because you are sending out good vibes to the universe which means that the universe has to send you back more vibes as the Law of Attraction teaches. It really is amazing how quickly things will improve when you make the choice to create joy and be happy. Remember that no one else can make you happy except for you.

Today go out and create your own happiness with those you consider family.

The Lovers

You relationship needs tending, as do all things that live. It could be time to make a romantic gesture, to love another as you would wish to be loved, to understand that love cannot flourish when there is mistrust and anxiety. You may be despairing that your relationship may never match your dreams – please know that your true love lies within your own willingness to believe that you too can experience passionate love, and that you are well-worthy of its ecstasies, no matter your beliefs about your age, your health, your beauty. You are a beloved one. The Dragonfae know this. Now they ask you to know this too.

Lucy Cavendish

Do you truly love yourself? I mean love yourself to the point that you understand that you have flaws that can be improved upon but do not negative self-talk. Most of us do not love ourselves to that level and a lot of that has to do with the way our society tells us we should feel about ourselves. Society would have you believe that you are not as worthy of love because you don’t look perfect, you don’t have a certain amount of money, you can’t travel the world, the list goes on. Well society is wrong and it is up to people like you to change society.

It is time to start loving yourself for who you really are and not what society wants you to be or who your family things you should be. You don’t have to fit in to be loved. You don’t have to act this way or that way to find acceptance. Because in the end that only person that needs to accept you is you. Your family and society don’t know what it feels like to be you or what you are feeling, they only know what they are feeling and want the rest of the world to conform. And if you ask me conformity is not the way to go.

Today start loving yourself for who you really are and if you’re not sure who that is go find yourself. Go realize what a wonderful, interesting, and exciting person you are. Go realize all the talents you have to offer the world. Go out and be awesome!

2-1-16 Weekly Card Reading

Beginning of week – Melusine

You may be facing rejection from others, particularly due to traditional family, religious, or cultural expectations. Being thought of as unacceptable is some way. Struggling to fit into an environment that only loves part of who you are. Finding people who want you to hide some of who you are, so that you fit in.

Lucy Cavendish

The beginning of this week has you feeling like you need to hide part of who you are to make others happy. Let me ask you this… How does that make you feel and what do those feelings do to you? When we feel like we have to hide part of who we are it builds up resentment that can lead into major arguments. Although the person or persons asking this of you has your best interest in mind they do not fully understand the emotional consequences of what they ask. Tell them kindly that although you appreciate that they care that much for you that they want the world to love you, you have to be who you are no matter what because you have to be happy.

Middle of week – The Lady Alfreda

It is time to get real and own what you have previously blamed on others. This does not mean blaming yourself. Instead, work on shifting your own karmic residue (Dragonfae are wonderful at this!) and understanding the connections between what you have sent out and what you have created. Issues of law, justice, and karma. Fearful thoughts around what you see to be the darkness or black magick, not understanding just how the natural Law works, thus this card asks you to look to your own intent. Clear your space; work with your own dark times to understand the lessons. Make friends with your shadow and thank it for the lessons.

Lucy Cavendish

This is the perfect card for the Law of Attraction. So what you have previously sent out is coming back to you and it sucks! You have to deal with this in a positive way in order to change it next time it comes back. When things that seem back occur it is up to you to change your mindset and make them as positive as possible while understanding that there are lessons to be learned from this experience. This is also the time to start examining your shadow self and making peace with it.

End of week – Queen Mab

Getting back to the basics of enchantment and magick, reconnecting with the old ways, and seeing them as eternal. Understanding the karmic history of your area, and applying the principles and lessons in the present moment. Telepathically receiving messages, and trusting in them. Knowing that your thoughts have energy and can have an immense impact on what happens (think of the threefold law…). Indulge in some old-fashioned magick, believe in your own abilities, and trust in the ancient ways of wisdom that run in your blood, as well as in the planet’s heartbeat.

Lucy Cavendish

So you have made those around you understand that you can’t hide the parts of you that may make others uncomfortable and dealt with karmic issues and your dark side and now it is time to reconnect with your soul. The part of you that is eternal and ever evolving into a better being. This can be done through meditation, prayer, nature walks, and other things that make you live in the moment. When you take time to reconnect with yourself you gain confidence in your abilities, all of them, and have no fears of the unknown. This is important in your life and should be done daily; however if you have gotten off track now is the time to get back on track.
