The secret to long term success

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.

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!

It's about the long game

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
