Have you ever wondered about synchronicities? Are they random events that seem similar or are they connected? That’s what Patty is talking about in this episode.
The Divine uses all of us. Patty shares that we all have missing “pieces” and there are others who are meant to fill those parts of us on life’s journey. She shares 3 stories about how this shows up in different ways.
We know that clutter isn’t great energy. Patty relays how taking some old frames apart and seeing the photos with a new perspective also brought her a sense of peace.
When we listen to those nudges and follow our instincts (even when we’re not sure why) the Divine will share insights for you.
If you aren’t aware (or sure) you are receiving signs or if it feels like the Divine isn’t communicating with you Patty encourages you to take a few minutes to be quiet and still and act when you’re inspired to.
Remember, that you may also be the angel in someone else’s life and not even know it. Patty shares how this showed up for her when she ran into a friend she hadn’t seen in a long time.
What are you being guided to do?
Can you pause and listen and pay attention to the messages that are there for you?

0:00:04.3: 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 turned 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. Welcome to this episode of the space for magic podcast. I’m your host, Patty Lennon and today I wanna share with you a couple of stories that have happened and to me in the last couple of weeks, and the connective tissue really is just maybe the moral of each story, bringing me a sense of peace that there’s connection in the world that there’s synchronicity in the world, and if I do my job right on this podcast that you will feel a bit of hope for what’s possible in the divine using each and every one of us to heal another and in the receiving school last week, it was really interesting because two people came forward and asked questions that really required a lot of courage, a lot of courage, they really put themselves out there in a very vulnerable way, and what had happened by the end of the call was that so many other people shared with those two how much they had helped them, that they either didn’t have the courage to ask that question, they didn’t even know the question was in their heart, or just witnessing their courage gave another person the courage to speak their truth.
0:01:54.9: And I had commented during the call, something that has always been a foundational piece to me of bringing me peace, and so sometimes when things don’t always make sense, and it was that we each come with holes, with pieces missing, with wounds. And we go in search of how to heal those wounds, to fill those holes, to find the pieces that match up to the ones we are missing, and what I believe is true is that we each have those places where we’re not complete because there’s another person who has the answer for us. And so we are all walking together on this journey and we all hold the answers for each other, and it’s stepping forward in our own truth, that we then deliver answers to another, and it’s following inspired action that the divine can work through us in times like we’re in it can feel frustrating to see things around us that we wish was different and feel like we have no power to change it, and sometimes we get into situations where we’re effort-ing and effort-ing to change something on behalf of another… But if we start to understand that the divine will use us when the divine needs to use us, and if the divine is not sending us to help another through inspired action, the divine has another angel lined up for that person and you can trust that.
0:03:31.7: So that’s what some of these stories are about. So a couple of weeks ago, I felt a push to dismantle frames I had hung in my parents’ home. So when my dad passed away and we eventually sold his place, there were framed pictures that I just couldn’t toss… I didn’t have any particular attachment to them, but I knew they were meaningful to my parents, and so for that reason, I held on to them.
0:04:03.2: So I had a pile of maybe 10 frames, collages Framed pictures that I just intended to dismantle the frames, and if the frames were in good condition. Donate them otherwise, toss them, they’ve been sitting in my closet for almost two years now, no over two years now, since my dad passed, until a couple weeks ago, I just felt dismantle those frames, dismantle those frames, and now a piece of it… The reason I thought I was being guided to do that is I’ve been asking the divine to show me where I can clean up my energy, what little releases can I meet to help participate in this massive spiritual release that I believe I’m going through this… I feel like there’s this layer of spiritual unknowing that’s falling off of me, and I’m starting to see things and understand things in a deeper way, and so there’s a need to let go of other old ideas, and I found that when we let go of objects that no longer match that. It’s a comforting and purifying kind of activity to do when you’re going through these metamorphoses, I’m not sure what the plural of that word is at this moment, I know you listening probably know exactly what word I’m looking for.
0:05:25.3: You get it. So I felt like that the frames was one of the ways the divine was saying, Hey, I do this… Like, clean us up. Right. And so I finally sat down last weekend and started dismantling the frames.
0:05:40.9: Now, there was a benefit to me having a pile of frames in my closet is not good Juju, not good energy, especially if you’re never gonna use them. It’s just clutter.
0:05:51.6: So I was taking this one collage, a part that was all black and white, and it was old pictures of my dad’s family, and I sort of knew who some of the people are, sort of didn’t, but I was gonna put them away because who knows, maybe one of my kids or my siblings, kids were one day can really be interested in the history of their family and want those pictures, and one of the pictures, when I took it out, was of two women and a little girl, I have looked at this picture for 20 years, I’ve looked at this collage for 20 plus years, and it’s fascinating that you can look at something and not see what’s right in front of you. Right, and so that’s kind of cool.
0:06:35.6: As I was dismantling these pictures and I was looking more closely when I turned that particular picture over, I found that it was my Aunt Rita, now, my aunt Rita is not my technical am… She’s not my father’s sibling, she is his cousin, but she was so close to us that it was like she was an aunt and two standing with my grandmother who I never met, she passed away before I was born. And my aunt who I did, and they were at playland… And.
0:07:02.3: If you’ve been with me for long enough, then you know Playland is a really special place in my heart and in my history. So Playland is an amusement park. Have you ever seen the movie Big, where Tom Hanks, his character goes to get the Fortune that was filmed at playland, and it’s a place I grew up going to every year, and my dad, right up until the year he passed, went on the roller coaster with me every year.
0:07:29.6: Right, so at rebel age of 89, roller coaster, the dragon coaster at Playland is the same age as my dad, and right up until the end, he was doing that and we would go every summer, his family, and in fact, a Rita and her daughter and her grandchildren had come with us the summer before my dad passed away, so when I pulled out the picture and realized it was taking a Playland, it was my… Aunt Rita really felt like it was my dad winking at me and thanking me for honoring the history of his family, and that alone was so special to me to feel that connection to him, and.
0:08:06.0: So I snapped a shot of the picture and sent it to my Aunt Rita and said, Oh my goodness, look at what I just found. I have been looking at this picture, not closely, obviously, my whole adult life and never realized this was… You will… A minute later, she messages me back and tells me that she’s dumbstruck and that she actually only has one picture of herself from her childhood, and that this picture is actually her with her two favorite people. And how much it meant to her. Now, I can tell you that although there wasn’t a strong chance, there was a chance that I would have just thrown a frame out with all those pictures, and I know that’s horrifying to think about that, but there was so much stuff to go through in my dad’s place, and I really didn’t have a connection to these people, I didn’t think… But everything that my guide had told me not to throw away the pictures, and so they are amongst something that I had looked at every day was someone else’s treasure, my aunt read as treasure, and I Dorman to be able to do something good for her.
0:09:19.9: It makes me so happy. And so I don’t know why that particular week was the week that the divine just gave me that bigger nudge to undo those, but I am confident that part of it was for Aunt Rita.
0:09:37.3: And I don’t know why she needed that particular picture on that particular weekend. I’ll probably never know, but I’m so happy. She has it now.
0:09:46.0: And then as I went on to dismantle some of the other pictures, one of them was my high school graduation picture that had always hung on my parents, well, and.
0:09:56.4: I have a copy of it, so again, such a strong chance that I would have tossed it in the garbage, but.
0:10:02.6: As I dismantled it underneath my high school picture was my eighth-grade picture, and I have been searching for a month to find a picture of myself in eighth grade, so I can show it to my daughter who’s in eighth grade and about to move up to high school because people tell us we look alike, but I must have been so… I don’t know, awkward at the time, they’re just aren’t pictures of me at that particular age, and then they’re hiding behind a high school picture was my eighth-grade picture, and so then once again, I was given this gift of something so precious to show my own daughter and what was so fun when she looked at it, both her and my husband had the same reaction, he said it always at your high school graduation picture, and I said, No, that’s my eighth-grade graduation picture, ’cause I’m in a cap and gown. Around here, we do moving up ceremonies for eighth grade in public school, but I had gone to Catholic school and the school is K through eight. So you do have an official graduation with the cap and gown, and I looked at it and she was right, I just looked so much older than she looks.
0:11:10.7: Not age per se, but just different, you know, I did look like I had a bit more command on the world, I would say. And in that one, I got another gift, which was the realization that one of my most important goals as a mother had been met as my children have grown up in the time that we’re in, I.
0:11:32.7: Have craved so many times for how to keep them children. To let them experience childhood, that they not have to grow up faster than they have to, and the thing is, I know the truth about my own life, I know I was born an adult, I do know this. I’ve had healing sessions where it’s been confirmed that when I chose this life and I chose this childhood, I didn’t have an interest in childhood things, as they say, I was ready to jump into the muck of all the problems of the world or my family, and so I didn’t lose out on a childhood… It was never one that I intended to have. I was in charge of lots of things from when I was little, and it shows in my face, but what also shows his comfort in my own skin, I don’t know why there aren’t a lot of pictures of me at that age, but I look at my eyes, and I see someone who really felt like she was ready for the world, and that’s how I do remember high school, as I stepped into high school, I had the doubt to every teenager has, but I did feel like I was ready, that I understood what was important.
0:12:55.6: And I’m happy about that, I’m happy to be able to see that look at my face, and then I’m also happy to, in contrast, see how young my child looks that she did get to be a baby and a small child and a young person throughout all of middle school.
0:13:15.0: As aware as what she is of the challenges in the world and as much of an activist that she is at her heart, she is still a child, and there are many things that I questioned in the journey of being a mom, and I think that’s natural to parenthood. But.
0:13:33.5: This one, I did write, I.
0:13:35.9: Did, I kept things in perspective enough that she could experience life as a child, and.
0:13:42.1: So there was another gift it… All those gifts, just from the impulse to dismantle some frames, and.
0:13:49.8: Then another gift arrived as I went to take out, there was a folio. And when I opened it, a photo folio, it was from my father’s college, and there were graduation pictures of him, and there was about six of them, and.
0:14:08.0: I already had one myself, so there is another six, and so then that really made me laugh because if you open the door to our dining room china cabinet. What you will find is about seven years worth of my children’s school pictures, multiple, multiple, multiple copies of them, copies I ordered with the intention of giving them to people and never got around to.
0:14:34.7: Now, my mom was exactly like this, and I just assumed this was something that passed down from her, but seeing that this was my father’s pictures as well, I realized that my grandmother, who I never met, but who I felt a close affinity for, was the same way as well. And.
0:14:50.7: So, look, this, this one little flaw or crazy habit of buying pictures, and never giving them out, was something that I could connect to my grandmother, and I know it was my grandmother because my dad wouldn’t have worried about getting pictures to anyone, so all of that just from one instinct to go clean out a frame, a few frames, and that’s how subtle the divine is in getting us to work on behalf of others and our own dreams, our own needs, our own desires, and all we have to do is just slowly and gently follow the instincts, we have to do something and.
0:15:32.6: Not deny them, even if they don’t directly tie to what we think we want and need in this moment. My task list right now with both kids, both kids sports ended up going longer than expected because of winning certain games and some weather and etcetera, which is fine, but getting them to practice those and games longer than usual. Like I said, my daughter is in a moving-up stage that there’s a moving-up ceremony and I’ve been involved in that work, and.
0:16:06.1: Then there were a lot of other things going on. If I was going to just practically think about all the things that need to get done, dismantling those frames wasn’t at, but I just felt that pose, pose, pose, Do it, do it, do it. And I thought, What’s it gonna take a half an hour and look, look at all the blessings that came out of it, look at all the connection points, the awareness, and… So if you’re sitting there and you’re feeling like, Is there… Am I getting signs? Am I getting help? What do I do next? Think about is there something that you been gnawing out you to get down and can seem like just a task to get off your task list, but it’s just there buzzing around your mind like a fly if you feel that… Follow it, because on the other side of that might not just be some mundane tasks, there might be a lot of magic, and on top of it, you might be ending up being someone else’s angel in the process without you even knowing it.
0:17:05.2: Now, I have a few other stories along the same lines that I wanted to throw in there just to maybe drive home the point that sometimes we are someone else’s angel without even knowing it, so as I said at the beginning, just people asking questions, vulnerable with courage in a community, made such a difference for so many… And.
0:17:27.2: Sometimes we think we know what’s going on with another… And that isn’t necessarily true. So the other day, I ended up at a coffee shop and a local coffee shop that a woman I know works that, and I haven’t gotten there a lot throughout the pandemic, just because even going for coffee used to be something where you go and you sit in the coffee shop and you talk, but since that hasn’t been possible, it just… Not as something I do as frequently. So I ran into this woman I know, and I said, Oh, my good news. Hey, how are you? And she’s gone through… Before the pandemic, she was going through a difficult time. She was going through a divorce. I had reached out to her a couple of times and had her back, and it’s crazy where our minds go, but part of me thought I had done something to upset her, now the more practical and logical part of my mind said, she’s busy, she’s going through this change is massive change in her life, just ’cause she hasn’t responded to your text and doesn’t mean she’s mad at you, but I’ll be honest, a lot of times my mind goes there when someone doesn’t come back to me, I can do work on it, but my instinct is to…
0:18:40.9: That they’re mad at me, that I’ve done something wrong, even though I can’t remember what that is. So.
0:18:47.4: I see her and I just said, You know, how are you doing? I’ve been thinking of you. And then she said something to me that, of course, reminded me to not listen to my lizard brain, that part of my brain that tells me no one likes you, you’re not enough. You’ve done something wrong. And.
0:19:04.4: She said, Hey, I know we haven’t talked, but I just want you to know that the post you put out on social media really make a difference to me, and.
0:19:12.6: She said, Sometimes Patty, you might be doing something and think no one’s seeing it, and it makes the difference in their day, it’s the thing they can look at that gives them hope, and so I just want, you know, in case you think it isn’t making a difference, just know it is.
0:19:30.8: An amazing gift she gave me and she doesn’t even know because I was so surprised that she offered that to me in the moment, it was such a contrast to what I had worried was going on that I really couldn’t… I would have had to educate her on how crazy my mind had been, and really why would I do that when she’s at her place of work, but she has no idea what the gift she gave me. She has no idea, and someday I will make sure she knows that but you went about her day and she has no idea how she just touched someone and what a difference she made… You showed me one, don’t pay attention to your crazy, and two, there have been times where I’ve made an effort to put something out on social media on my personal page that I sometimes worried. Do I sound like a pollyanna devil or people rolling their eyes, but there’s a part of me that just felt like, Yes, I wanna share this sentiment, I wanna share how I see the world, I wanna remind people that people are good and that there is a divine that there is a universal force, a source of love that is always there for us, and the right people will see it, and then there she was telling me that…
0:20:45.8: That’s exactly the truth. And.
0:20:49.5: Then the final story I wanna share is about cards, so recently at the end of our mastermind, I decided to go to the card store and pick out individual cards for each of our members. In the past, I’ve always used cards that were printed with business logo, my logo is a mandala, so it’s pretty… So, I mean, it’s not that I have things looking very business-y, but it’s always been something that’s been inside the business, but I really wanted something more personal, I went and picked out individual cars for each person, and while I was there, I grabbed a couple of extra blank cards, cards with the interesting covers on them, and just because I was sick now, you never know when you’re gonna need a card, this was my thought, and then over the course of two or three days, I ended up mailing those cards out to different people for different reasons. And.
0:21:43.4: Two of those people came back to me and said, You have no idea. The day I got that card, I needed it. I needed to hear what you had to say. And I thought, wow, there.
0:21:58.5: I was just following one impulse after another after another, and really not thinking too much about it, it definitely felt like each of those things felt like things that were in the flow, meaning like they were right to do, even though I had a laundry list of things to do for work, I sat down and wrote those cards because they felt like flow… I didn’t do them because it felt like the right thing to do or I should do them, it felt like flow, and that flow is the divine working through us. And I know that feeling, there have been days where I have gotten cards in the mail and exactly the day I got that card, I needed it. And so I just leave you with these stories in the hopes that, like I said, that you understand that their divine is always working through all of us, and first of all, if the divine needs you to intervene on behalf of someone else, the divine will let you know through flow through inspired action, it will feel easy to do something, even if it seems a little off the beaten path of your day.
0:23:05.2: And when you do get those impulses, follow them because you have no idea how much magic is being worked in the world. No idea. And finally, if you’ve got a hole inside of you, if you’ve got a piece of missing right now, what I want you to know for sure is that someone else out there has the answer and that I really, truly believe we are all working hard to find our way back to the home within ourselves and that I am sending you much love that that person with that missing peace find you so that the answer you’re looking for land, and you have it and you know how much you are truly loved… Have a beautiful day. Hey, thanks for listening. If you know someone who needs to hear this message, please share this episode with them, and if you’re feeling really generous, I’d love for you to leave us a review at your favorite podcast app, it helps us reach many more people and it fills my heart with so much joy when I hear what you have to say about what I’ve shared. I’m cheering for your success, have an amazing day, and don’t forget.
0:24:14.5: Always create space from magic.
