Are You Looking to Balance Your Energy?

Aisling FitzGibbon

The Dark Ages

During the dark ages of illusion and separation women were persecuted, vilified and destroyed. In a patriarchal culture a woman’s power was regarded as suspect, a threat to the established order. Women possessed gifts and an energy that was beyond a man’s understanding and for that she was condemned. She was not officially allowed to study medicine and the position of the church at that time was that if she dared to cure without having studied, then she was a witch and would have to die. Women were faced with an evil that surpassed any rational understanding.

But the Burning Times did not put an end to our powers. Women, as keepers of the mysteries went underground and their DNA passed through each generation until it was time to re-emerge. 

The Age of Aquarius

The time is now as we fully enter into the Age of Aquarius and the rise of the goddess has begun. Everywhere women are casting off the wounds of suppression and are beginning to heed their own unique call to action. The collective unease of having to live within a linear patriarchal society is being felt. We are not able to maintain our energy and vitality in this ego separation and competition when as women, we know on a deeper level that for us to thrive we need an interconnected community of support and inspiration that will eventually create a more equable and just world for our children’s future.

Together We Ascend

Now it will be different because it is not just about the female power rising and taking over from the male. Rather it is a time where we will balance the feminine and masculine qualities within all of us. The feminine energy will help counteract the male driven doingness that has been the hallmark of our survival in the outer world. By teaching us how to be, we begin to develop our intuition and creativity and we begin to explore the importance of our emotional and soul body. The feminine energy leads to the development of a strong inner world that gets us in touch with the Aquarian values of compassion, love, peace, harmony, integration and nurturing. As sisters we rise, while embracing our brothers as we acknowledge that the individual becomes the universal while still maintaining individuality which paves the way for unity in diversity. Together we ascend.

The Healing Arts

For thousands of years mystery schools helped to initiate both men and women into embodied female wisdom. People were trained in the healing arts and in developing their own connection to their intuitive faculties and to their own divinity. Queen Scotia, daughter of the pharaoh Akhenaton, brought her mystery teachings to Ireland. Her divine feminine thread links her to us as we reawaken in lives that include family responsibilities, work and relationships.

Our challenge is to develop our emerging gifts and maintain our energy at this time of incredible earth shifts and transformations. During the Energy is Your Currency Masterclass we will explore ways of developing the feminine energy in our lives and in balancing it with the masculine. Together we will create manageable and achievable steps towards empowerment through firstly taking charge of our own energy system, as energy is our most powerful currency.

Change begins with each person at a micro level and ripples out into the world at a macro level. We change the world by first changing ourselves. I look forward to working with you.

To your energy and vitality,

My magnesium miracle- the calm after the storm

Aisling FitzGibbon


My personal experience of magnesium depletion was in hindsight a golden nugget as it showed me just how powerful this one mineral is to balancing our biochemistry. Nobody really thinks about energy until it’s gone and then life becomes a scramble for it. A lack of energy makes you want to take anything to get that feeling of energy back, but no matter how many stimulants you take that underlying depletion is there. Everything becomes such an effort. I took to the bed hoping that rest would restore me and when it didn’t I began to feel helpless, anxious and depressed. I knew there was something seriously wrong. I was only 18 and my 66-year-old grandmother had more energy than me!

The medical approach was drugs for epilepsy which I declined (I did not have epilepsy) and antidepressants which I took because I felt desperate. I wanted to get back to my own life, to feel like me again and to be able to return to college. The years I took anti-depressant medication were difficult as although I was coping with the way I was feeling I did not feel well. Any form of stress would make me panic and anxious and I had no real energy.  

Once my studies in university were complete I was in the zone for seeking solutions to my predicament. I was led to Nutritional Therapist Barbara Wren, author of Cellular Awakening.  Under her care and guidance, I was given a specific diet and one of the minerals I took was magnesium. My body responded positively and over three months my energy started to come back. The brain fog that had plagued me for years lifted and in 6 months I was back to a better version of the old me. Move over Granny.

I immersed myself in studying everything I could about magnesium and the first thing I wondered was how I had become so deficient? Magnesium deficiency is the most common nutrient deficiency in modern times and is caused by two main reasons. Soil depletion and stress. Soils have become depleted because of industrial agricultural practices that use chemical fertilisers. These chemicals prevent crops from taking up minerals such as magnesium from the soil. Widespread usage of pesticides and herbicides further reduce the uptake of magnesium. Is it little wonder that 80% of people are experiencing health problems due to a lack of magnesium in our diet?  

Stress can cause a magnesium deficiency or a magnesium deficiency can trigger the stress reaction. Stress causes urinary losses of magnesium. You know how it is when the ringtone of the person next to you in a supermarket queue acts like a frenzied grater on your nerves. Then your boyfriend forgets to clean the apartment prior to your arrival and you have a total melt- down. Cortisol and adrenaline, the fight/ flight chemicals either unleash your inner psycho or make you want to run away in a grand dramatic gesture. Take your pick.

The good news is we can replete our magnesium stores. Lately I have been using a magnesium oil. Magnesium oil is recommended by Dr. Caroline Dean, author of The Magnesium Miracle. I tend to use it in the morning after a shower when I spray 3-4 sprays of oil onto my skin. What is so great about the oil is that it bypasses the gastrointestinal tract and is absorbed transdermally by the skin where it goes directly to the tissues that need it most. How cool is that? I literally feel my skin drinking it in. The magnesium chloride in the oil stimulates DHEA (a steroid hormone produced by the adrenal gland) production on the skin. This makes you feel happy and balanced in your body.
