Today’s show is for you if magic feels elusive or the messages from Spirit don’t seem to show up. Patty shares that we often have a plan to get from A to B. As we get moving, sometimes we find ourselves on a different path and instead of being open we resist and try to force the path to move to what we expected.
Are you willing to see what’s right in front of you?
Hear how this has shown up in Patty’s life. Hint: it’s about feeling worthy. When we feel that we are the problem, it’s a good indicator that we’re not receiving what’s right in front of us.
Is here something that’s not going the way you want it to go?
Perhaps you’ve decided that the Universe isn’t listening to you or that your signs weren’t coming in. Patty shares a few new ways to look at your current circumstances in with a new perspective. This is life-changing!
What do you believe is right for you?
That can be hard to explain, so perhaps knowing what is wrong for you is easier. When we know what’s right (or wrong) it helps us to be open to receiving. It’s always here for us. If it feels elusive it’s likely that you haven’t been opened to receiving.
What if everything was happening for you, not to you?
This is a fundamental shift that can help you see things with new perspectives. Can you allow what is right for another to just be? This happens with the most well-intentioned parents and family members.
Be willing to see what’s right here.
We often want to complicate things. Simple works. Take what’s in front of you and write down your quick impressions. Revisit it when you can take a bit of quiet to see how it fits with everything that’s happening in life. Look for patterns and synchronicities.
This year is all about getting to the truth of what is true for us. That requires seeing what’s right in front of us and asking for signs for clarity.

welcome to the space for Magic podcast where people who are led by their hearts come to learn the secrets to receiving all the gifts the universe has for us? I’m your host Patty Lennon. I’m an ex type a corporate banker turns intuitive coach using a blend of common sense brain science and just a dash of magic. I’m here to help you create abundance in every area of your life and business. Welcome. Hey there, welcome to this episode of the space for magic podcast. I’m your host Patty Lennon and today we’re going to talk about something that is it comes up a lot. And to me it gets to a lot of the core of why we tend to push space for a magical way or we don’t make space for magic and we push the magic away. And that has to do what’s right for us. So I titled this podcast episode. Are you willing to see what’s right, and I left it there because there’s a few ways that we can take this and we’re gonna go a couple of different directions and I want to start with Are you willing to see what is right in front of you? And by that I’m talking about answers that are right in front of you signs that are right in front of you the truth of another that’s right in front of you, and so often and I am guilty of this as well. So I am not preaching from the mountain, when we have an idea of how the future is going to unfold or what we would like to happen in the future. The journey that the universe that the divine takes us on, it doesn’t often work the way we expect it to work in our mind. We are here at 28 and we envision point B and it’s going to be the straight line to point B and right and we can see so clearly like that would be is where I’m headed and that is where I’m going which means I should be going straight ahead. But what we don’t know because it’s so far in the distance is that up ahead. If we walk straight in the line, we’re going to run into a you know a break in the road. There was no way to get straight from A to B or there’s going to be a big mountain there were a big pile of crap and the universe the divine knows this and he’s going to take us on a journey that brings us the safest and most evil way to point B. And if point B is not our highest and best good then it’s going to take us somewhere even better. But what happens is as we start to get moved in a direction that’s different than what we expected. The breadcrumbs of where we need to go gets laid at our feet. So we can follow the trail. We don’t like that break from it right in front of us. We don’t like where we’re being guided right now. And we think we’re supposed to be going in a different direction until we refuse to see what is right in front of us. This comes up whenever I’m working with a group around intuition and getting your intuitive messages and hearing the voice of the Divine hearing the voice of the universe, knowing things talking to your spirit team on the other side of the veil. What will happen in groups is that someone will be firmly convinced that they are not getting their answers. They are not getting their answers. And yet the rest of the group as they hear the story of that individual can see clearly where they’re being guided what they’re being guided to. And then that occurs for many members of the group as someone that can see so clearly for another member, what they are meant to do what is right in glaring neon sign in front of them, they will feel the absence of that in their own eyes and you know I have no signs I have no clarity I I do not know what is going I don’t know why this keeps going wrong. Why does this keep going wrong? Why is this not going right? And yet it’s obvious it’s tempting, right? Because the true right way for that person is in another direction. And in fact, something one thing failing one thing not working one thing not going the way that we want it to go is really truly guidance taking us in a different direction. But we refuse to see it and we refuse to see it for a lot of reasons. You know one of the reasons is because we fundamentally don’t replace all they have a cord you know every human has a core wound is record thing that they’re going to work on almost entire life they’ll just be coming up with layers and layers and layers and and we have a few flavors but for the most part everyone comes back to some core wounds, some karmic horrible and so mine is that if I am not at my best if I am not solving the problem if I am not the fixer, the helper that I am fundamentally unlovable and underneath that is just a poor sense of unworthiness, right? And so my my early childhood worthiness came from being a perfectionist getting everything right and good at school following all the rules bla bla bla bla bla bla and so I believe in my my lower brain I made the little beats on my safety, my worthiness comes from being able to do things correctly and get them right the first time. So when something doesn’t go the way I want it to way I expected to do when I’m doing something and it doesn’t succeed. What happens if this old wound gets stirred up, and I start to think it’s not working because I am not doing it sufficiently that somehow I am failing in the process. And so I keep re engaging it and reading it coming out of different ways. Because my lower brain my brain thinks the reason it’s not working hard enough. They haven’t done it well enough. I haven’t studied.
It explained this happens to many people. If you recognize yourself in my story, then what I can tell you is what often happens when we’re thinking we’re the problem is we don’t receive the truth of a path that this thing is going wrong as a gift as a way to take you in a different direction. And if we come back to this place of truth that there is magic in the world, and magic is that force that takes us toward destiny or destination that that desire our soul birth when we set a clear vision for ourselves, that there is this force helping us along the way and we are meant to do is our 100% But once we’ve done that 100% Our job is to then surrender it and we’ll talk more about that next week. But oftentimes, instead of surrendering, we do 101% 102%. And so we’re shoving ourselves against a brick wall, when that brick wall is there to say go left or go right. And so what is right in front of us is this brick wall, and yet we’re not seeing it because what we’re believing is that it’s actually proof that we’re not sufficient. And so we believe in our own worthiness or even act as if we believe in our worthiness act as if every thing that goes wrong is actually right for us and showing us a different way. All of a sudden, the signs we’re being given the directions we’re being given the information we’re being given, opens up because then we get out of resistance to what we’re being offered. And when we get out of resistance. What happens is we receive we start to receive clear message we start to be able to hear them in a more clear way. We see the signs, the abundance comes in, things start to flow, they start to work out and all of a sudden we’re in receptivity, and all of a sudden the magics flowing, but it requires seeing what is right in front of us what is right in front of you. And so I want to stop for a minute and ask you. Is there something right now? It’s not going exactly the way he wanted to go? Is there something that is that you think maybe I just haven’t tried hard enough? Maybe I haven’t asked target visualized hard enough, whatever it is, it’s something not working and you are concluding that somehow you’re not enough or maybe the divine isn’t paying attention to you. Maybe the universe lost track. of you know, that’s just another symptom of enough. What are suddenly you went into a space and I’m gonna ask you to do it right now. I want you to think of that thing. It just isn’t going quite the way you want it to. Isn’t it something specific? He was just like, this isn’t as great as I would like it to be. And there’s something feels a little bumpy on my path.
What if those bumps mean what if that brick wall is there to guide you? somewhere else? If you knew that to be true, where would you go next?
Where would you go next? Where maybe it’s just that you’re meant to go nowhere. Maybe you’re just meant to relax and let go a little and let the dust settle and the science to show up showing you where to go next. And by the way, if you are not familiar with the science I dropped in or you need a cheat sheet of designs for all kinds of signs. Certainly, I do have a quick cheat sheet you can download a patreon.com forward slash signs to get the most common signs that people get. This can be really helpful if you’re trying to know what comes next and you’re asking for a sign if you think you might be missing them. This cheat sheet may help you I hope it’s you. That was certainly my intention to go and grab that. So as you start to see the signs, and then you start to go in another direction. It can be scary. It can be scary because you’re thinking I feel the work well but that means I’m being guided away from this career. I’m being guided away from this relationship. I’m being guided away. If you’re an entrepreneur, I’m being guided away from this product or this launch or the sale I’m being guided away from parenthood or guided away from singlehood are guided away from whatever you’re being guided away from and suddenly you’re like wait a second, no, but I invested so much in being this other way I invested so much in this marriage, this desire to be a parent this career, this product, this book, whatever, you know, this creation, if I go in another direction, I’m giving up all of this that I invested and I’m giving up my dreams. But in fact, if you trust that the universe that the Divine is taking you to somewhere even better, and all of a sudden what is right for you can change. And so often we come so attached to who we think we are, why we think we’re valuable, especially to others, that it’s hard for us to see any more what is right for us. And so then let me stop and ask you I want you to think about this. What do you believe is right for you? Maybe you don’t even know maybe you do know though that something else is wrong for you. Even acknowledging what’s wrong for you can create a space of openness can create a sense of receptivity because when you stop denying What’s wrong from you move out of resistance which moves you into receptivity, when you move into receptivity, what happens again, when you start to come into flow, the magic flows in we are receiving magic which by the way, the magic is always around the divine help the universe has helped supporting us taking us where we need to go your your team’s help, always, always available. It’s just whether you can let it in. That’s where the space for magic comes in. Are you making the space for the magic to actually come in and work in your life? Or are you staying with your hands out to what’s in front of you ignoring what’s right, what’s right for you? What’s right in front of you, in favor for something that you think is supposed to be or should be? That’s what blocks the magic from coming into your life and working itself around and and adjusting things and bringing flow and bringing surprises and bringing signs and bringing messages? What would life be like if suddenly everything that happened to you what’s happening for you? Everything was a sign and every synchronicity that occurred occurred to support you occurred to show you something even if you don’t yet know what that is. This morning, I was sitting down from my pool, which is where I spend every morning and we’re early in the morning when I get up usually around six 630 It’s quiet out except for all of the animals especially the birds and and some other little fellows sometimes it’s a rabbit or groundhog but we’ve been in the state that I’m in in Connecticut we’ve been in a bit of a drought we just start to get water but the drought has caused a lot of frogs to start spending a lot extra time in our pool and i my heart of hearts I don’t think the flooring is good for them. So I keep scooping them up and these are tree frogs scooping them up and putting them back into the wooded area and they keep popping back into the pool. And so finally, I have allowed them to desire that they have a pool which kind of goes actually that third point I want to make which is can you allow what is right for another to just be because sometimes we get out of our own path we get confused because we’re so intent on knowing what’s right or another that we get more in their business. I see this especially with myself with my kids. I see this in my clients in the groups that I run where they see what’s right for a sibling they see what’s right for parent what’s right for spouse, with my partner provide for our kid and we’re so busy being in their business and deciding what’s right for them that you’re not allowing that because they keep returning to that choice point. That way of being that you think is not right for them that in fact it is right for them. And then we can know that it’s right for them. Maybe it’s not going to take them where you want them to go but it’s taking them where they need to go taking them where for whatever reason, their choices and their mind need to go and get the lessons they need. And so I was watching these rods and they just keep coming back and coming back in and I said to myself okay, I have to stop trying to manipulate the situation. And they’re pretty determined to say that in this moment, and I don’t know enough about ecosystems to know what the value is for them being in it. Maybe that is more important than them being you know, out in the trees in the midst of this drought. What finally yesterday rain came and I went out and I was so excited. I’m really hoping there’d be more frogs in the pool, simply because I don’t want them stuck in the water if it’s not good for them. And what was interesting is that not only was abroad there, but it was sitting on this little pad that we have in the pool, and there was a salamander on it a little baby salamander and it was actually a new, a read something new I
looked it up and I don’t know what that means. But while I was watching them, they’re a little new and it was a baby called on top of the little tree frog and it just sat there and it really felt like it was hugging it. I don’t know that they necessarily get along that way when I looked at the actual news, the description of it. I think I read that it was poisonous, so possibly something that’s good was going on. Although the frog left and went away and got out which was really interesting, by the way, because I had believed that the frog couldn’t get out of the war, but the frog actually got out of the pool without help without when he wanted to. And so there was this experience of this little new is resolute cuddling up to this frog, this frog being able to escape the pool when it wanted to. And I don’t know exactly what that meant for me. And yet I felt it meant something. I just felt it and I don’t know yet so I see with a lot of people that when we feel like we don’t know what the thing is what it means, but we feel the feeling that this means something for us. We feel a synchronicity and it happening if we can’t figure out what it means right now, that somehow he doesn’t mean something or we’re missing out on something. But what I’ve come to learn is see what’s right here. Be willing to see what’s right here, take it in. I took in that there was a message and this without fully knowing what the message is yet it’s only been as I’m recording this. It’s only been a couple of hours since this happened and I’ve been busy. So I really haven’t even had time to contemplate it or sit in a little bit of a meditative space. And my little bit I mean, I don’t get into a deep meditative space. It just means sitting quietly and just waiting for something to drop in. It’ll drop in later today. It’ll drop in tomorrow. It’ll drop in maybe a week from now. I was guided to start listening to another podcast episode that’s talking about the ocean and ocean ecosystems completely out of a different direction and haven’t gone through that podcast episode, but give me give me the answer. What I know is that I have a few things that have been delivered right in front of me. I’ve been given pieces of a puzzle. I just don’t know what the whole picture is yet. So am I willing to take what’s right there in front of me? And by the way, jot it down. That’s a big encouragement that I give people is write down what you see write down what you feel when the signs calm, write down what’s happening, write down your confusion, come back to it later. Because oftentimes the pattern the message, the full picture is they are now right in front of you. But it takes being willing to see what is there to begin with to ultimately get the full picture. So as you go into this next week, we are in a time this year is a time full of transformation. It is asking us to get underneath our old habits or old beliefs and really find what’s true for us what is actually right for us not what are these polarized experiences of life that we’re being encouraged to engage in with really find your own witness your own truth, your own guidance, and it requires seeing, seeing what is right in front of you. And when you’re not sure asking for signs asking for synchronicities. All of those things, the numbers showing up over and over again. The Cardinal that keeps landing in front of you, the dimes that show up the feathers, whatever it is, they all have a message for you. They all continue somewhere. And again, you can go to Patty lynda.com forward slash signs. To get that teaching of the signs. I really do feel like we’re all being guided very directly very specifically right now. And the more willing to see what’s right in front of us and the more we’ll be able to make space for magic. Alright, have a beautiful, beautiful week. And next week we’ll talk more about that topic I touched on which is when do we have our 100% What is the surrender point where we can let go and allow for the universe to take over a little bit. So that’s coming up and until then, don’t forget, make space for magic. Hey, thanks for listening. If you know someone who needs to hear this message, please share this episode with them.
