Gift ideas for the body, mind and soul

Aisling FitzGibbon

Holiday Gift Guide by Aisling 2017.png

I love the Christmas season as it lights up the darkest and possibly the coldest time of the year. During this season of goodwill and cheer people tune into the high Solstice energy that prompts an opening of hearts and desire to gift our loved ones. This time however does not come without its stress, wondering what to get for whom and whether or not they will like it. So this year I am compiling a list to help you give the gift that makes a difference.

1) Kate Northrup’s Money, a Love Story: Untangle Your Financial Woes And Create The Life You Really Want This book helps you to write a new story with your money. Kate teaches how money is all to do with your personal power and self value. It shows how to create a healthy relationship with your money so you can create abundance and financial freedom to live the life you want.

2) Gabrielle Bernstein’s Judgement Detox. Release the Beliefs That Hold You Back from Living a Better Life. This is a guide to healing your relationship with judgement that can prevent us from fully participating in our relationships. Based on The Course of Miracles, this book is a six step approach to releasing judgement and resentment. This is essential to raising your consciousness and to attract new opportunities to create the life of your dreams.

3) Bringing Death to Life by Patricia Scanlan, Dr Mary Helen Hensley, Aidan Storey and Pamela Young. I had the pleasure of meeting Mary Helen Hensley at an event this year and her story healed me in so many ways after losing my dear Mum this year. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has lost a loved one or has a fear of death. This is a game changer.

4) Jonathan Acuff’s Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done. This book outlines the reasons why 92% of New Year’s resolutions fail and what you can do about it. Learn about how fun and taking the pressure can be more helpful to you achieving your goals. This is a must read for those who find it easy to start things but who fail to finish. This book will make you feel alive with new possibilities.

5)  Medical Medium’s Liver Rescue is the ultimate guide to reclaiming your health. This book is one of my go to resources for making health choices both for myself and my clients.

6)  I love Dr Bronner's products. They are so gentle on the skin. They're made from organic ingredients with perfectly blended essential oils. Choose from either the soaps or the liquid soaps.

7)  Skin can feel dry and taut from indoor heating. Dr Hauschka’s Rose Day Cream Light is ideal for dry or sensitive skin. It is super hydrating and you only need to use a little to cover your skin. 

8)  I recommend Dr Hauschka’s foundation as it only uses organic natural ingredients and does not use animal testing. It blends really well and doesn’t cake. I find that it lasts all day and gives incredible coverage. 

9) Treat yourself to a homemade face mask made from Bentonite clay over the holidays. This is amazing to make your skin feel so fresh and soft. Bentonite clay draws out toxins from the skin making it deeply cleansed like you had a facial. This is wonderful value for money as the container lasts for ages.

10) Christmas is not Christmas without the customary pjs and slippers. I love the North Face slippers that are like a puffa jacket for your feet. If you are like me you love your feet to be cosy and warm, these North Face slippers are quite a treat.

11) If you have not already invested in a rebounder then think about getting one this year as it really makes a difference to fitness and tone. I recommend the Fit Bounce Pro as it’s durable, of high quality and doesn’t make any squeaky springy noises. Rebounding benefits have been recognised by NASA. It is so easy to exercise using the Fit Bounce Pro during the cold winter months when you feel more like cocooning than exercising.

I hope you choose the best gifts for you and your loved ones. Have a wonderful holiday filled with joy and health and happy new year for 2019.

My Christmas book list

Aisling FitzGibbon

I love to sink into a good book and rummage in someone else’s imagination for a change. Have you, like me, ever found yourself being led to the right book at the right time when you're ready to hear its message? And then you have those wonderful ah ha moments when your thoughts and those of the authors' collide?  

This Christmas I plan to reread some of my favourites and also invest in some new ones. There is nothing better than the rain beating down outside, flames dancing and darting in the stove and dipping into words that have the power to change us by simply changing our perception.    

My recommended list for Christmas will include authors I am already familiar with and already love and some newbies. Choices. Choices.

I’ll begin with Gabrielle Bernstein who is a personal favourite of mine and a master at crafting her message. I already have her book Miracles Now that is written in her terrific Spirit Junkie style and is brimming with practical techniques to help combat common problems such as addiction, anxiety and fear. This is a great pick up put down book for quick stress relieving strategies.

I plan on buying her latest book The Universe Has Your Back. In this book Gabby shares how she maintains how she feels regardless of what's going on in her life. This is a book that illustrates how by changing our mindset we can transform negative life situations into life lessons. I love Gabrielle's practical and down to earth manner and I look forward to delving into another Spirit Junkie treasure.

I almost cannot wait to order Rise Sister Rise by the Hay House author Rebecca Campbell who really impressed me at the Hay House conference in London last year. Anyone who wants to learn how to unleash their feminine power to tell their truth and lead then this is the book for you.  

Another favourite author of mine is Christine Northrup. I read her book Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom which provides a cornucopia of knowledge on women's health and sexuality. This is a must read for anyone planning a natural home birth and who wants to sail through the menopause. This year I will treat myself to one of her latest books Making Life Easy: A Simple Guide to a Divinely Inspired Life

Brene Brown is an author who has discovered the inherent power in vulnerability and its necessity for wholehearted living. Brene's book Daring Greatly shows us how feelings of never being enough can graduate into shame and fear. By embracing our vulnerable nature and expressing gratitude we can combat these feelings and live more fulfilling lives. This book offers tools to help deepen our love partnerships

My gold star for this year's book is A Mind of Your Own by Psychiatrist Kelly Brogan. This book has revolutionised the treatment of mental health conditions and is paving the way for a paradigm shift away from drug based treatment. This is a book that will change how you perceive mental health forever. I absolutely love it. 

Seeing as I am making Christmas dinner this year I plan to enlist the help of Danielle Walker and her amazing book Against All Grain: Delectable Paleo Recipes to Eat Well and Feel Great .This is one of the best paleo books on the market and is loaded with delicious, innovative and easy to follow recipes.

A few years ago I started reading a book while in the bath and was so drawn into the story that I became oblivious to the water that had gotten cold. The book was Mutant Message Down Under by author Marlo Morgan. This is a story about the author who goes on a journey with a nomadic group of Aborigines for 4 months in the desert in the Australian outback. This is a book that challenges our western values of competition and greed and opens us to the spiritual nature of indigenous people.

Although the book Many Lives, Many Masters has been on my bookshelf for years I never read it.  So this Christmas I plan to read a book that promises an insight into the concept of reincarnation. The story is centered on psychiatrist Dr. Weiss whose conventional treatment of a 27-year-old woman for anxiety, depression and phobias has failed. Past life memories would be the key to her recovery. Sounds intriguing.

Christmas would not be Christmas without a good book to read. So treat yourself.
