Today’s special guest is the lovely Mara of Celtic Heart Healing. Who kept popping up on my newsfeed on Facebook and I love what she’s expressing through her work and life. Mara had mentioned that her own Dad had past away and she deeply understands the journey I’m on with my Mum. I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did in creating it with Mara.

Mara Elaine O’Grady

Mara Elaine O’Grady

Mara shares about the start of her awakening back in 2006 living in London on the way to work in her corporate career she just missed the bombings. The chaos and fear of what could have happened catalysed Mara into asking the questions about what her life purpose was and the dominos started to fall.

Led back to come home to Ireland, Mara started doing a Shamanic training with Paul O’Halloran and opened to the exploration of energy. Initiating into Reiki also helped her clear a lot of fear and density. Past lives, suppression, ancestral line. Mara uncovered the veils of her true nature.

So many things like the synchronistic meeting of people showing her she’s not alone and being lead to a book that catalyses a new action has helped Mara move from fear to trust.

Mara recommends to listen and look at what’s around you. What’s showing up in your life right now? Follow that golden thread and take the next little step.

What’s also helped move from fear to trust is changing her diet and getting into nature to lead her into magical places.

No matter how far you’ve progressed on your journey you need to be reminded of the fundamental steps. Unpack all that you have learned and meet it with humility and innocence.

Mara has travelled the world working with sacred sites in the US and back home in Ireland. At the moment she’s settling back into the Irish Collective energy. Focusing on working with the earth, horticulture and living life in a sustainable way with nature based connection.

Mara facilitates heart and soul healing 1:1 online globally and groups using cacao medicine and sound healing.

Her vision is to create a land space with a retreat temple with elements of the earth’s plants, crystals and simple healing technologies and new stuff to access your true higher self and elemental nature.

The magic is to be able to surrender and not get into fear based programme “I have to everything all fixed now, I have to have a definitive pathway to follow”.

Mara’s message for you is to have the faith that able to manifest the bigger vision, that anything is possible and believe the magic and your own gifts are coming to you.

Practices that help get into trust?

Meditation first thing in the morning and before bed keeps the line open to the sacred side of life.

Nature, nature, nature. Get out everyday in nature.

Working with water and visit sacred wells.

Dropping in somatically to move, dance, sound tone to move the excess energy and do this spontaneously and free.

Experiment with food, moving out of denser ways of eating with meat and fish to transition into plant based.

Working with the water, blessing the water and consciously ingesting it.

Listen in the moment, what do I need to feel nourished?

Mara’s works consciously with the water. You can recode any body of water, oceans, rivers and lakes.

Intend and pray for water to purify we’re co-creating our future. Planting the seeds of possibility for a new tomorrow.

It’s all about frequency. When the old part of yourself is ready to let go you drop a frequency signature.

No matter what you’re called to do it’s important to release your attachment to the outcome. Letting go of your agenda lets the magic happen.

You can’t box yourself into an old reality. You have to totally deconstructure who you thought you were to move into a new configuration.

The ingredients you need are faith, connection with nature, the little things that bring magic, innocence and wonder helps you move into believing and trusting.

Everything has its own timing. Incubating a body of work, Mara started her book 6 years ago in Ireland. She’s living what’s she is writing and meeting the page everyday to share the magic she’s lived through the lands she’s walked.

Your message has be to embodied, a living embodiment of your own experience. That’s where the potency is.

It was such a joy to connect with Mara and I look forward to following her journey and getting my hands on her book as soon as it’s ready.

I hope you’re inspired to embody your message from this conversation. Let me know your key takeaway in the comments below.

Love & trust

Understanding is the new healing

Aisling FitzGibbon

In today’s episode, I’m joined by special guest Dr Mary Helen Hensley. Mary Helen is an author, chiropractor, metaphysical healer, international motivational speaker and is my book mentor.

Today we’re talking about her brand new book Understanding is the New Healing that’s available now which shares miraculous stories of recoveries from physical and emotional trauma.

Mary Helen has previously written a trilogy of books Promised, Circles of light and A Land beyond the river which were later published as the one book with her personal story by Simon & Schuster.

Understanding is the new healing is a collection of stories from Mary Helen’s clients and her personal journey.

It was going to be called Understanding is the new forgiveness but Mary Helen found that forgiveness is one of the misunderstood words out the. The key point in anyone’s healing journey is understanding the WHY. When you focus on forgiveness, you still buy into the illusion that something or someone can harm who you really are.

The understanding that really hurt me or that was horrible to go through but I actually understand why it happened in my story as it led me to this, it introduced this new person into my life and now I understand -puts you into a place of empowerment.

Understanding is the new healing shows you a broad spectrum of examples how people have been affected by disease processes to emotional states like depression, suicide and extraterrestrials.

You can find even one story that shows a piece of yourself and how it works in your life to start your healing.

The entire first half of the book explores how past lives impact people’s present life.

Mary Helen got this understanding after her near death experience at the age of 21 when she was involved in a fatal car accident. An idea presented to her at her time of death meant when she came back to life she had to completely reinvent her paradigm.

The signs and clues are around us all the time which Mary Helen covers in depth in this book.

One particular chapter is about a client called Alex who was suffering from panic attacks that were related to a past life experience. Mary Helen challenged her to write a new script with her new understanding and toolbox.

Healing doesn’t mean that trials and tribulations aren’t going to come knocking on your door. Healing means you’ve found a way to deal with the adversity when it presents itself. That’s why understanding is the new healing because if you have this expectation that you’ve put everything aside and just cause you got through one challenge that it’s never going to show it’s face again.

It’s about knowing what to do and building this fabulous toolbox where when it does come calling you can go oh I know exactly what to do to deal with that.

Everything that happens is for your growth and evolution even the really hard stuff. There’s a reason and plan behind everything.

Mary Helen has been a massive help to me with understanding the death of my Mum which presented me with every opportunity to give up and do nothing. Instead I looked for a way to find confirmation in what I knew in my heart and soul, that she wasn’t really gone. She’d changed form like water and steam look different but are the same thing.

We can still work together. We’re writing our book Moving From Fear To Trust together and I strike out on something that’s my greatest life’s challenge, having the faith and understanding that my Mum’s right there with me by my side.

That’s why she had to go when she went cause there was no way I could have grasped this concept if it was someone who I wasn’t that close to. It had to be her.

Mary Helen’s Dad’s death was monumental in her growth and development. She feels him and he’s there to converse with. She had to lose such a major player so she could come to the understanding what she was capable of without his physical presence.

In Understanding is the New Healing there’s a story of a guy who comes to Mary Helen after a failed suicide attempt. When he released the truth about what happens when you commit suicide and what happens when you die he choose to be his best self and not to use his mental health condition as an excuse for a behaviour he could recondition and change. When he realised what he had to offer he stopped trying to hurt himself.

With all the wonderful and moving stories contained in this book, Mary Helen has clearly affirmed that life is orchestrated for your learning, growth and evolution. Everything is happening for a reason and for you to develop an understanding of how the big picture works.

I’d love to hear from you what was your number one takeaway from this episode. Share in the comments below!

Navigating a long distance relationship

Aisling FitzGibbon

Richie’s been on his European tour since April and up until recently it’s been relatively easy navigating our long distance relationship. With Richie away it gives me plenty of time to focus on my work and writing my book Moving From Fear To Trust.

But then on the 2nd June I fell on my trampoline and ended up fracturing two bones in my right foot and got a cast and crutches to get around. This really made the distance between Richie and I really difficult when I was sitting in A&E and having to face the place where my Mum was last conscious.

I’ve settled into my new routine of getting around with one leg and wanted to sit down with Richie on this week’s podcast to discuss navigating a long distance relationship.

Building your vision takes sacrifice and pushing outside of your comfort zone. Richie reminded me that it’s your perception of the situation that matters and that we are creating our life’s work so that we will be able to spend more time together. In the meantime I’m focusing on the positive of the situation.

This is a time to build my trust in myself and life without having to lean physically on Richie. I have chosen a path of building a business that’s unfamiliar and the future outcomes are unknown. This is the perfect condition to cultivate deep trust in my own being and to take risks. So far it’s working and I’m confident as I keep going with all the small steps and big leaps.

I have the space to write my book, Moving From Fear To Trust and for me to fully embody my message the Universe has provided the perfect conditions for me to do so.

Within any challenge you may be navigating right now ask yourself “What is this asking me to learn” and “What’s the opportunity within my situation”. These questions help to reframe your mind and focus on the deeper meaning behind the events of your life. You’ll also find you focus more on the solution rather on the problem.

I share with you this Rune card “Childlike Enthusiasm - Lighthearted dancing with the unknowable by releasing the need to know”.

I’d love to hear from you. What situation do you need to reframe so you can see what you’re meant to learn?

Treacy O’Connor - The Connector

Treacy O’Connor - The Connector

Back in 2012 my Mum and I went on this weekend retreat by a group called Awaken Ireland at the Boghill centre in County Clare. The intention of the weekend was to gather to create a new vision for Ireland.

During that weekend I made some very special connections one of them with Treacy O’Connor who often hosted myself and my Mum on our many trips to Dublin for The Girl Against Fluoride campaign.

My connection with Treacy deepened last year when she played a very special role in helping both my Mum and I in her transition in the hospital and holding my Mum’s final goodbye ceremony in the crematorium.

I was delighted to sit down with Treacy for this week’s podcast episode to share with you her bright light as one the powerful vision holders of Ireland.

Treacy is an Interfaith Minister, co-founder of Corporate Wellness Ireland and runs weekly meditation and mindfulness classes. Her key role in my Mum’s passing coincided with her receiving the message to bring joy to death like we bring joy to birth. It’s a transition from being in a body to being released from your body.

Celebrating their life and journey while honouring the grief is Treacy’s intention and she creating this beautifully in my Mum’s final ceremony. She had arranged for the song I Have a Dream by ABBA to be printed on paper so everyone could sing my Mum off to the song that she had chosen to pass away with despite being unconscious at the time. This showed us certain signs and messages that demonstrate a person can still communicate with us even when they’ve passed.

My Mum, Martha’s funeral was a joyful celebration of her and this was helped by having Treacy hold that space for us all as were in the depths of grief having lost the Martha we knew and loved.

Treacy was ordained an Interfaith Minister back in 2017. This ties us back to when we first met in 2012 and shared the highest intention of coming up with a better future for Ireland.

Following that powerful weekend in March of 2012 we all had to go on our individual journey’s to clear our fear. We had come together with the fire of anger at what was wrong with the system. Now we are creating what we do want. Focusing on where we want to be we have to go on our individual journey of an internal shift and coming back to unconditional love, honouring and accepting where people are at.

The core ability to want to grow and evolve together. Embracing, collaborating and going into corporate spaces to share our wisdom on wellbeing.

One of the keys to be and move from fear to trust?

Mindfulness and presence. Being the centre of your own storm like the inside of a shell. It requires dedication and commitment. Do it because you feel the benefits and you know it’s going to have a positive impact on your life.

Up to recently to focus has been put outside ourself. It’s important to have community but no had over your power to it.

Treacy focuses on honouring peoples life transitions in her work as an Interfaith Minister. Her ceremonies honour the strength we hold in all the challenges we’ve overcome, how we’ve broke through them and gives permission to love through the transition with joy. She believes that like flowers and plants, we grow when we’re given the right conditions to bloom.

Vision for the future?

Treacy is very much led by the present and what’s bubbling up. Her vision is a collective vision about everyone and where we’re going together.

Corporate Wellness Ireland growing from one service to seminars, half day and full day workshops and Leadership, Management and reorganising structures. Sharing the model of Corporate Wellness Ireland with others.

Sacred sites, myths and legends. Treacy is creating a tourism business to facilitate the journey of discovery through the sacred sites as key initiates from birth to possibility with music and storytelling.

Treacy is also involved with an initiative for societal transformation and is focusing on bringing together in unity other wonderful initiative happening in Ireland to see what they can do to hospice the old and midwife the new.

Treacy’s vision of the future is bright and hopeful. It’s time to work together in unity and partnership to bring it about.

Revealing your authentic self

Fiona Marie O’Neill on Ballyheigue Beach, County Kerry, Ireland.

You know when you deeply connect with someone because there’s a recognition that you’re on the same path and you just get each other. Well this week’s special guest on The Aisling and Richie Podcast is one of these special people in my life.

Fiona Marie O’Neill is a multi passionate woman. She’s a singer of heart songs with her two sisters at The O’Neill Sisters. Last year they had a viral hit with Red is the Rose and sang for the Pope in Phoenix Park, their music career is thriving.

Fiona is also a teacher of Feminine Embodiment, yoga and the author of Radiant Woman Revealed ™, where she shares her journey of revealing her inner radiance.

At the start of 2019 Fiona made a New Years Resolution to reveal her authentic self to the world. She asked herself the question who am I and am I being my authentic self?. Kicking off the year with a retreat in Las Vegas, Fiona returned with the commitment to do everything that sang to her heart rather than her head.

Bringing together singing and yoga for feminine embodiment, Fiona discovered by going into her inner world and digging deep to reveal her authentic self she sees the value in the work she’s already doing.

Fiona and I have share the same love from the Medical Medium. In the music and entertainment industry there’s a pressure to stay fit and healthy. In California Fiona explored all the diets including veganism, raw veganism, vegetarianism and all sorts of work outs.

As a few of her family members have Hashimotos (autoimmune condition affecting the thyroid) Fiona followed the Thyroid cleanse by the Medical Medium. She’s being enjoying celery juice in the morning for a year and has noticed huge benefits in her face, skin, body and overall energy. Fiona likes the non-judgemental style of Antony Williams (Medical Medium) and finds she can integrate his teachings into her lifestyle in a relaxed approach.

Isn’t this the reason we’re all doing self help, to feel acceptance, peace and non-judgement? - Fiona Marie

The practices are you currently doing?

Currently doing the 21 day mirror work by Louise Hay along side her other practices of singing, dancing and yoga.

Fiona realised that stress is fear and through moving from her head to her heart and body through dance, self care and taking the time to breath she can trust.

Having the awareness of how you feel in any given moment and instead of coming from your head go with how your feeling regardless of the consequences, such as saying no to someone.

Life aligns when you move from your feelings and body.

Move from existing to truly thriving by dropping down into your body. When you don’t listen to the whisperings of your heart and body you manifest dis-ease.

What helps you move from fear to trust?

Committing to yourself, believing in yourself. Get educated, follow the longing to go on a course that’s calling you. It’s baby steps to follow your heart and body and as you take those little steps the path reveals itself to you.

Get a support system of like minds around you that understands and that you can talk to. You could get lost as you’re going to face dark times to bring them to the light. Going to events and having the support helps you navigate any difficulties in revealing yourself.

Follow the little whispers that say read that, take that course, email that person, call that person, even if it doesn’t make sense and you don’t know where it will lead. Always trust that you are being led.

Train yourself to be open and release your addiction to fear, tension, doubting and protectiveness. You have to train yourself to come out of this way of living.

The arts are the key to living a brilliant life. Tuning into the inside and dancing. Singing to make sounds and let the body flow. This frees you up across all areas of your life.

To get your creative energy flowing turn on music and dance, paint, sing without judgment or worrying about the outcome.

There’s beauty and medicine in Feminine Embodiment. Moving from within and doing it for yourself you find the healing in it.

Until recently the healing arts have not been revered and valued. Now it’s time to bring the feminine and the masculine together as both are equally valuable to life.

Fiona’s son has dyslexia and is a right brained learner so is the perfect teacher for bringing the feminine way to approaching life.

The vision for Radiant Woman Revealed?

Fiona’s sharing her journey of revealing her authentic self and intends to inspire others to be their brave, bold, authentic self. Fiona believes there’s a diamond inside us and it’s a matter of dusting away the old stories and blocks slowly with practices such as dancing, attending courses and surrounding yourself with like minds and hearts to reveal the light and beauty inside.

Final words…

Be brave, write to us, there’s always support for you and with that said your biggest guru is yourself, it’s you that can give you the answers you need.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this episode. I’d love to hear from you what was your biggest insight you’ll take away? Share in the comments below.

Make friends with fear

Aisling FitzGibbon

As I’m writing my book Moving From Fear To Trust, I’m fascinated by others who are taking bold moves in the direction of their dreams. What you focus on grows so by focusing on others who are moving from fear to trust it helps you do the same.

Back in February I connected with this lovely lady called Leigha May and I had a inner knowing that I had to reach out and find out about her.

Leigha+May+Photo.jpg


Last week I had the privilege of sitting down virtually with Leigha for this week’s episode of The Aisling and Richie Podcast. Leigha May is a certified Coach for your life, spirit, and career based in Los Angeles, California. She works globally alongside women and men who are ready to create the lives that they love and crave. Through coaching and mentorship, she blends spiritual principles with pragmatic action.

Leigha recently left her corporate career as a HR and Recruiting Executive. I asked her how her journey as a life coach began and she shared that it was an intentional step to break out of those four walls and take the things she loved and knew deep in her soul and really amplify them on a much broader level and make much more impact outside of the 9-5.

I asked Leigha how she has moved from fear to trust to follow her path into the unknown. She said it’s about feeling the fear and doing it anyway. When you feel discomfort lean into it and take it as a sign you’re on the right path. As you leave the security of what you know dig into your inner knowing and trust it. It takes time to build that trust.

Leigha went travelling for a few months this year called her world wide wander to lean into the discomfort of the unfamiliar to get a dose of her own medicine. She journeyed through the lower part of the States, Ecuador, the Amazon jungle and New Zealand.

I asked Leigha what advice would she give her 18 year old self?

Just do it and go for it. The desires and dreams you have don’t come out of nowhere, they’re planted in you and most of the time many years before they come into fruition. Trust that inner knowing, if you have a pull or nudge, there’s something to it. When someone says I had a gut feeling, that’s something very meaningful and the sooner you can trust that the more freely you can live and really create a life you're proud of.

About moving from fear to trust?

Your brain is hardwired to two things, safety and comfort.When you know this you can quickly move beyond fear and say that’s ok it’s my fear speaking but it doesn’t have to be in the driver’s seat of your life.

The goal isn’t to remove fear it’s to make friends with it. I see you and I hear you, you’re just not in charge today.

Leigha is now a full time life coach with a 1:1 practice as well as a Mastermind for people building their businesses. It can be a very lonely path which is why Leigha is passionate about creating a community for others on their journey of evolving. It can be a hard path to carve on your own but when you have the right support it opens up a whole new world.

The simple spiritual practice that helps the most?

Leigha recommends connecting with nature. Being in nature and meditating outside. Noticing the cycle of the seasons, plants, flowers and animals and connecting this to your own being. Nature teaches you such rich lessons if you’re willing to stop and see.

Vision for the Future?

Community building of large circles of men and woman back to the basic human principles before we had corporate building and false lighting. A place to feel supported and be mentored, give mentoring and share your stories.

Leigha’s word for 2019 is rewilding which is a call back to your natural self. It’s so freeing to not have to go through the motions any longer, it’s really powerful work.

Now we’d love to hear from you. What is the number one takeaway from this episode? Share your comment below.

Let your process suck

Aisling FitzGibbon

You’ve got to be willing to let your process suck as you start out. From the mistakes you learn the crucial lessons you need to master your craft.

In today’s episode of The Aisling and Richie Podcast we talk about the exciting updates from Richie’s tour and the things that just plain suck.

Richie recently released his debut album Odyssey which you can get here and here

There’s a process to everything in life and you have to go with it. When Richie first tried to record his album himself it was absolutely awful. Richie poured a lot of his money into the creation of his debut album and eventually hired Grammy Award winning producer David Odlum to produce “Odyssey” which is finally released after many years in the making.

At every stage of your journey you’re brought to a crossroads. Will you take the safe road or will you leap in the direction of your dreams. I heard this question about choosing your dreams in a recent interview with David Bach on Marie TV and it gave me the extra fire to take the leap with my work.

When you follow your dreams there isn’t a map and you’ve got to figure out a way to make a living from doing what you love. It’s a process that takes time and lots of trial and error.

This is the journey Richie and I are on. I hope that this inspires you to follow your dreams and be willing for things to suck as you grow and evolve to the next level of what you’re doing.

Let us know in the comments below what process are you willing to let suck so you can get good at it?

In this week’s episode of the Aisling and Richie Podcast I share a recent interview I did on Reclaim and Master Your Energy Summit. I was interviewed by the host Willemijn Maas on my healing journey and what I’ve learned along the way.

I started out on my healing journey at 23 years old. After experiencing burn out which led to a diagnosis of depression and anxiety I was on antidepressant medication from 19 - 23 years old. During this time I was completely shut down to my own ability to heal but it was a necessary part of my journey which was the catalyst for my path as a Holistic Nutrition Coach and now writer of my first book Moving From Fear to Trust.

Often the most traumatic experiences led you to the greatest transformation. It’s only when things get unbearable do you find the strength to move beyond your current reality. Like a caterpillar leaving its cocoon.

In this interview Willemijn asks me key questions about the life changing events over the past decade that have shaped who I am, including how I got involved in activism with The Girl Against Fluoride campaign.

After hitting a wall fighting against the system in 2014, I was led to take an inward journey which opened me up to my power, strength and courage to accept where I am and to focus all of my energy on creating my vision one step at a time.

The ultimate test came when my Mum got suddenly unwell last February and ended up in an medically induced coma for 12 weeks, eventually passing away on the 10th May. The test was to face my biggest fear and to move from fear to trust by focusing on the highest outcome unfolding.

After many months of practicing moving from fear to trust, I was given the message I needed to hear by Dr Mary Helen Hensley at the Open Minds Conference Ireland last November. After speaking on stage, Mary Helen was the speaker just after me. As she stood on the stage looking down on at me in the audience she shared a message from my Mum that we’d come to the earth to work together and that she’s brought me to the perfect point where it was time for her to exit but she is still working with me from the other side.

I’ve been shown through my biggest initiations that it’s always possible to move from fear to trust. You can heal when you let life support you. Surrender and let go of your attachment to the outcome and free up your energy to heal.

Now I’m excited to guide others through their unique journey of moving from fear to trust and reconnecting with who they really are. It’s an exciting time to be part of the growing moment of women reclaiming their energy and creating a new reality that supports all of life to flourish.

I was so excited to be part of the Reclaim your energy Summit which you can find here: Click this link

The summit was hosted by Willemijn Mass, M.D and Certified Coach of Elemental Life

I’d love to hear from you, let me know what was the number one message you’re taking from this interview? Let me know in the comments below!

The secret to long term success

Aisling FitzGibbon

The Aisling and Richie Podcast.png

On today’s episode I’m joined by special guest Mike Mannix, owner of Kikoh Reiki and Iconic Underground Magazine.

I connected with Mike during The Girl Against Fluoride campaign and always have a great affinity with him. Mike is a diverse and multi passionate guy who always inspires me to think long term when it comes to setting my goals.

Fluoride free photo shoot at Kikoh Reiki, Dublin Wellness Centre in September 2012

Fluoride free photo shoot at Kikoh Reiki, Dublin Wellness Centre in September 2012

I wanted to share his unique perspective and gems of insight with you in today’s episode.

Mike runs a thriving Traditional Japanese Reiki Practice is Dublin Wellness Centre on South William Street. It was there I had a few retreats from the busy campaign and recharged with Mike’s guidance.

The other passion of Mike is electronic and house music and he owns the Iconic Underground magazine which is published bi-monthly.

The self empowerment tool of Kikoh Reiki has allowed Mike to stand on his own two feet and carve out his path on his own terms.

He shares that we’re all born with the latent ability to move and rebalance your energy. It’s as natural as walking and talking but the conditioning around an outside authority governing your health can block you from accessing this natural gift.

I asked Mike what was the biggest resistance to taking this journey of self empowerment and he said “it’s working through your shadow and conditioning”. He also believes that all the bells and whistles that are typically associated with energy healing can turn people off. This is why Mike refuses to morph into the stereotype of a Reiki teacher and instead embodies his diverse individuality. To me this is refreshing and inclusive for those who enjoy multiple passions that aren’t related to spirituality directly.

Mike’s secret to long term success is the 3 Ps.

Patience, perseverance and persistence. These need to be applied to any goal worth pursuing.

The biggest goal is to try to overcome yourself as it takes a great deal of strength to take a journey of self discovery. Our society isn’t set up to support this yet but luckily this is changing now as parents like Mike are influencing the next generation. Also meditation is now being taught in schools across the UK and in some Irish schools.

Mike’s son Leon who’s 3 years old is being brought up with this understanding of rebalancing energy and I’m sure during his upbringing will learn many valuable lessons on how to be self sovereign. Which means relying on your own self to direct your life.

Mike’s key message from this conversation is to stick to your guns, distance yourself from the naysayers. Success is a long fought road. The attitude of gratitude is essential. Gratitude brings more of what you focus on. Be grateful to pursue your goal with the intention that it gets a bit easier with time.

Now I’d love to hear from you, what is the number one insight you’re taking away from this episode. Leave your comment below!

In today’s episode I catch up with Richie who’s on tour in Europe. So far Richie’s played gigs in over 5 countries since early April, including Switzerland, France, Germany, Netherlands and Belgium.

Sometimes Richie wonders will anything come of it but he reminds himself it’s about reaching one person at a time.

Richie’s been selected to feature at a Singer Songwriter Festival in Copenhagen on 31st August, this and many more opportunities have come in since Richie set out on tour early April.

The key lesson is that the more you focus on the process, the more you’ll see it unfold. When you fixate on the outcome you miss out on being present to the process.

This lesson applies to all the things you’re trying to achieve and create in your life.

Be prepared to build from the ground up. Start small and keep growing.

Richie’s inspired by musician Tommy Emmanuel who carved out his own music career into a thriving lifelong career. Also Gary V the CEO of Vayner Media is a great model of following your long term game.

You have to be willing to go through a period of discomfort and uncertainty as you establish you’ve goals in your life. If you don’t get out of your comfort zone you’ll never push yourself beyond your current reality.

Moving From Fear to Trust Book update: After a great meeting with my book Midwife and Mentor Dr Mary Helen Hensley my goal is to have my 60,000 word manuscript completed by end of July.

I’ve so far written 7,000 words so only another 53,000 words to go. I’ve broken this down to approx 611 words per day over the next 90 days. Somedays I write more when I’ve more energy and space and other days I write what I can. The key is to stay with the momentum of getting it done.

With this book I have no idea of the outcome so instead of draining my energy projecting out into the future, I’m drawing all of focus into the present time on actually writing the book to the best level I can. I’m confident that when I’m at the stage of publishing the book I’ll be guided to take the right action I need to bring this book out into the world and to the people who most need to read it.

Our key message from this podcast episode is to start where you are and enjoy the process. The outcome will take care of itself from you fully showing up to the process.

Now we’d love to hear from you, what area of your life do you need to shift your focus from the outcome to the process? Let us know in the comments below!

Focus on being here now

Today’s episode is a life update session. Richie has officially begun his Odyssey tour and shares what’s happening for him in Europe this Summer where he’s playing over 100 shows in almost 20 countries and is releasing his debut album Odyssey. Odyssey was produced by Grammy Award Winning producer David Odlum in the Black box studio in France.

The key lesson when you’re embarking on your odyssey no matter how big or small is to start where you are and focus on this step fully and the next step reveals itself to you.

When you help yourself, people and the Universe help you to follow your vision.

Richie is making a documentary called The Odyssey to document the process of his tour behind the scenes with all the twists and turns along the way as he bring his music and voice into the world. I’m really excited about this as I feel it will be super inspiring and exciting.

You can download a free song off Richie’s album called Running Away at this link: Click here

Until next time.

Nourish your skin naturally

Today Richie and I were joined by Kevin Lynch the owner of Airmid. Airmid is a natural Irish Skin care company based in the Burren Co.Clare. I first visited Kevin back in 2017 in his factory in Waterville, Co.Kerry. Kevin and his family have since moved back to their home in the Burren where they grow their own herbs and make all their natural skin care products by hand in their factory beside their home.

Airmid was born in 2009 after their youngest son Caoimhin suffered with eczema. Tina, Kevin’s wife began to experiment with a chamomile soap for Caoimhin’s skin and eventually completed a professional soap making course. The initial seed was sown.

Airmid sources the purest and most ethical ingredients for their range of natural skin care products.

I was delighted to discover Airmid as I’m a big fan of natural products made of real ingredients. Ingredients include fair trade shea butter, organic argan oil, jojoba oil, essential oils, organic home grown herbs, extra virgin olive oil from El Greco from a Greek supplier and coconut oil and cocoa butter.

Airmid was the Irish Celtic Goddess of Herbs and Healing to the Tuatha De Danann, Ireland's magical ancient tribe. I think they definitely live up to that magical name.

Both Richie and I love the shaving soap. Richie finds it the best shaving soap on the market and is a convert for life. The new Italian shaving brush is vegan, hygienic and stylish.

You only need to use small amounts of their products so they are really long lasting.

Using the soaps you can buy a organic soap saver from their online store to help your soaps last as long as possible. The soap savers and reusable face scrubbies are made from Selkie Crochet in Waterville, Co.Kerry.

The funds that go to Selkie Crochet sponsor two girls through ActionAid Ireland with their profits - one in Vietnam and the other in Kenya. The shampoo containers are recycled pulp that can be planted, the tins are reusable and all packaging comes from sustainable sources. This is a win win for all.

Airmid produce bar soaps, shaving soap and shampoo bars by traditional cold process methods. All bars are cut by hand and are cured for at least 6 weeks before sale to ensure a hard, high quality luxury product that lasts.

What really connects me to Airmid is how big hearted and creative they are. They are willing to invest in proper ingredients for products that suit the most sensitive skin. As a result their margins are low so they don’t have the money to invest in marketing. Which is where I come in.

I’ve partnered with Airmid to bring their beautiful products into your life. This week’s Airmid Special Offer is available until Friday 5th April at Midnight GMT. There’s a 10 % discount and free shipping in Ireland for orders of 60 Euro or more.

What happens at the Spring Equinox

Aisling FitzGibbon

Last week on the 20th March was the Spring Equinox which marked the first day of Spring. As this is a topic close to my heart we decided to record this week’s episode of the Aisling and Richie Podcast to share with you all about the Spring Equinox.

The Spring Equinox is a transformative time in terms of your health and energy.

In the 5 Elements theory from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Spring is in the Wood Element which governs your liver and gallbladder.

This time is the perfect time to support your liver with an abundance of leafy greens (lettuce, spinach, kale, rocket, dandelion leaves and nettle leaves).

Dandelion leaves you can now pick in your garden can be juiced along with celery and cucumber to restore your liver and support your detoxification routes and remineralize your body.

A beautiful self care practice is castor oil packing of your liver to help cleanse your lymphatic system. Castor oil packing is not to be done when you’re pregnant or menstruating.

Edgar Cayce the sleeping prophet called castor oil “the palm of christ” as it emits white light into the cells which creates healing to the area that’s packed.

The Equinox literally means equal night. During the equinox most places on Earth will see approximately 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night.

This time of year calls you to clear out on all levels. Physically, emotionally, mentally, financially, spiritually and soulfully.

Cleansing and supporting your liver is the cornerstone of clearing out as your physical body is the entry point to everything else.

I’d love to hear from you, what action are you inspired to take from this episode and what practices are you doing that you’d like to share with us. Share in the comments below!

How to train your mind to be positive

Aisling FitzGibbon

Affirmations open the way, the beginning point of change. - Louise Hay

In today’s episode of The Aisling and Richie Podcast we discuss our practice of using affirmations. I was introduced to affirmations by my Mum who taught me to “make part of everyday a mini holiday” and a buddhist chant we always used to get a parking space. Your brain is primed to look for the negative so it’s important to train yourself to be positive.

To keep our ancestors alive, our brain evolved a ‘negativity bias’, which lets positive experiences flow through it like water through a sieve. - Rick Hanson

The morning is the most vulnerable and sensitive time which is why a morning routine is essential to set the tone for your day.

Everyday you have the choice to enter the day intentionally. To move from fear to trust. What you look for you’ll experience. It’s your perception of your life that determines how you feel.

Richie loves listening to the change your thinking, change your life meditation by Louise Hay in the morning.

Even if you’re in a negative headspace, you have the power to train yourself out of that. It’s not an overnight process, it’s a practice.

Share with others who are open and will reaffirm your practice back to you.

Affirmations serve you when you practice them when life is going well and when life is challenging.

They are an anchor and point of focus for your behaviour.

Practice for 30 days and evolve your practice as you evolve so it feels good to you.

Movement is really great to combine with your affirmations. I love to bounce on my rebounder and say my affirmations to hard wire them into my nervous system.

The future is a continuation of this moment so what you choose to practice in this moment will create your future reality. You have the power to choose each day. Even on those days where you feel overwhelmed by daily challenges you can change your perception to change your experience.

Now we’d love to hear from you, what affirmation practice do you do that supports you? Share in the comments below!

Pioneer your purpose

Aisling FitzGibbon

Pioneering your purpose (1).png

On today’s episode of The Aisling and Richie Podcast I’m joined by special guest Tricia O’Connor to talk about what it means to pioneer your purpose.

Pioneering your purpose means to create a life’s work, moving towards mastery and not caring what others think of you.

This journey is constantly opening up. You have to be a jedi as it’s the path of mastery.

If you’re resonating with this message it’s because you’re evolving.

You’re called to move beyond your belief systems and the collective belief systems.

You’re moving into a new terrain of accumulating wealth and growing bigger in your expression as you build your kingdom.

Irish women have been really beaten down. Becoming your greatest self is an act of devotion to the women who have come before you and the women who will come after you.

It’s a social responsibility to pass this on to others who are ready to evolve.

Pioneer your purpose retreat is a space holding for you to emerge into your greatest self. We’ll provide the tools, training and support for you to pioneer your purpose with confidence, ease and grace.

Will you move through your resistance to join us at this life changing retreat?

Today’s podcast episode is an exercise inspired by my mentor Marie Forleo about going pro.

I asked Richie’s 3 amateur habits he’s ready to let go of and I share my 3 amateur habits I’m ready to let go of.

To replace these old amateur habits we shared the 3 Going Pro habits we are now committing to living.

This is a great exercise to do when you’re about to embark on a new journey. Ask yourself what habits you want to let go and what new habits you want to live to express your greatest potential.

We’d love to hear from you, what 3 amateur habits are you ready to let go of and what 3 Going Pro habits can you now put in place to take your life, health, business to the next level. Share in the comments below!

The Ebb and Flow of life

On today’s episode I invited Maeve Ferris of Ebb and Flow Yoga Ireland to join me. I’ve been going to Maeve’s yoga classes since my Mum passed away last year. Not only has Maeve helped me release grief and build confidence in myself once again, she embodies moving from fear to trust.

Maeve’s corporate background gave her the perfect skill set to leverage on for building her thriving yoga practice. As she shares, she only started teaching a class of 2-3 and in some cases 1 student but she was determined to give her students a great experience and as a result her practice has grown exponentially over the past 2 years.

Maeve shares some serious fear moments she has faced along her path, including the very familiar “imposter syndrome” we can all secretly suffer when we’re on a steep learning curve.

A key message Maeve shares with us is “You have to believe in yourself or it won’t work”. This to me is a lesson I’m learning time and time again.

Once you’ve listened to the episode, I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

The pull of the tribal mindset

The Aisling and Richie Podcast.png

Last week I accidentally sent out the wrong article on my mailing list. As there is never such thing as a coincidence, Richie ended up reading the article that was published last January and told me to check it out as it’s relevant to what I’m going through at the moment.

This article was exactly what I needed to hear and I decided to record a spoken word of the article in today’s episode of The Aisling and Richie Podcast.

I invite you to listen in and if you want to read the newly updated article click here.

Let us know are you facing any issues detaching yourself from the pull of the tribal mindset in the comments below.

3 ways you can deal with a negative person

Aisling FitzGibbon

We all encounter negative people on our journey. One negative comment can derail you if you let it.

Richie and I share the 3 ways for dealing with a negative person:

1) Choose to not feed them your energy.

2) Opposing them to get them to see your point of view. You strengthen what you oppose. When you do this you see that it’s a waste of your energy.

3) Accept what is. Come back to your own power. Take action to strengthen your boundaries. Eliminate people that are having a negative influence over your life.

When you are going after your vision you inevitability encounter negative people that will try to bring you down. Having this awareness is really empowering so you can have the discernment to realise when you are falling into the trap. Richie and I have both learnt this the hard way dealing with people that are negative.

These situations are opportunities for you to grow and evolve.

We’d love to hear from you. How do you handle negative people in your life?

Love

It's about the long game

Aisling FitzGibbon

In today’s episode of the Aisling and Richie Podcast we discuss how it’s about the long game when it comes to following your vision.

We both share our stories of how we began our individual journeys back in 2010. The year we both qualified in what we thought at the time was our careers. Richie qualified as a Physiotherapist and I qualified as a Occupational Therapist.

Richie jumped ship and decided to pursue his career as a musician. It took him 2 1/2 years to complete his debut album Odyssey and now this year he is touring his album in 20 countries across Europe.

Richie went onto his path not knowing how it would unfold but he says it’s very important not to give a f**k what others say or do.

I share how I started my path with my healing journey back in 2010. After qualifying as an OT, I didn’t have the energy to pursue that career and instead found myself with the job of healing myself. This opened up to starting a campaign to get fluoride out of our water supply and soon after The Girl Against Fluoride after realising most people wouldn’t listen to the science against fluoride.

I had no idea of how long it would take and initially thought I’d give the campaign a year. After 7 years I now see that it will take a generational shift to create the change we want to see. Getting the fluoride out of the water is a long game.

I got really disheartened when I didn’t get the fluoride out in the timeline I had intended. This was a big lesson in detaching from the outcome and surrendering to the way life is unfolding.

Now I can see how important it is to think longterm so you can breathe and focus on what is in front of you.

All change takes time and doesn’t follow a straight line. Your intentions are not set in stone, they’re a guideline that changes as you evolve.

Enjoy where you are because “there” is here.

As always, I’d love to hear from you. How can you think of the long game of your vision and break it down into what you need to do now to make that happen over time?

Love,

Aisling
