Navigating a long distance relationship

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?

Let your process suck

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 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!

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.

Until next time.
