(00:02) Welcome to the wealth and purpose podcast where people who are led by their hearts come to learn the secrets to creating wealth in a way that feels really good and live. They’re purposefully in the process. I’m your host, Patty Lennon. I’m an ex type-A corporate banker, turned intuitive business coach. I’m also a wife, a mom to two pre-teens, a professor, girl scout leader, and well, Hey, you get it. Like you, I wear a lot of hats, whether you’re looking for inspiration to get started or strategies to get growing. I am here to help you create abundance in every area of your life in business. Welcome.
Well, as I offer this podcast to you and it comes through your device, whatever device that is, you are currently sitting in 2020. And yet, as I record this, I am sitting in 2019, which feels so bizarre because I do feel at a certain level that when we step over a threshold that a transformation does occur.
(01:02) And I don’t know what 2020 is going to be for the energy of that very first day. But what I can offer you today from these last few weeks in 2019 that would be helpful for 2020 is perhaps my predictions, what I’ve been seeing as energetic trends that have started to snowball that I think are carrying us into this new year. So the first is that I, what I’m seeing, is that 2020 is going to be a year that we look back on where the tipping balance of love hit and that love became more present in the world. And for me, what I’m seeing that’s led me to feel this is that we have all become weary from the journey we’ve been taking. And it’s a journey that was not of our own making. We did make it every single one of us. You may make our lives the way that they are, but they all come.
(02:12) They also come from an inherited viewpoint, ancestral DNA that combines all the traumas and all the good stuff that’s happened to all your ancestors. It’s a soup. It is a soup that we are born into, and that births us into the world. And we do have complete autonomy to change that and to create from it and to transform it. And what creates that alchemy is love. And typically, I find that even in the most dire circumstances, when a person becomes done with something, when they become so sick of being sick and tired, they have no choice but to change. And I think we as a people, and maybe this is coming from my position of white privilege here in the United States, but I do think that we as a people have become fatigued by the lack of love in many of our decisions as a community, as a world community.
(03:15) And what’s brought that into being is crisis. And that’s my other prediction for 2020s. I don’t think the crises are going to stop, but I also believe that they are proof that we are evolving, and we’re expanding, and that joy is coming into our lives. And where I want you to bring that home into your own world, into your own personal life, is to say where can love play a bigger role? And when I say love, I mean love as the opposing force to fear. So just look out where is fear making my choices and where is love making my choices, and where can I let love make more of my choices? You don’t have to be perfect at this. You just need to do a little bit more and then a little bit more. And then when crisis comes in, whether it’s a minor crisis or a major crisis to understand that it is proof of your expansion, it is proof of the world being offered to you from a different vantage point.
(04:22) And I offer that having been through many crises in the last six or seven years, I don’t say this from the mountaintop, I tell you this from knowing how hard it can be to be in crisis, whether it’s a personal, mental, physical, emotional or one that extends to your family or to your loved ones or to the world. I know how hard that is. I do, and I know how hard what I’m asking you is, but I promise as you look if you step into this year free from crisis and you make an agreement with yourself that when it comes in that you will allow yourself to feel what you’re feeling and also hold space for the hope that it is serving an expansion for you and for others. You will be able to navigate this year with much more beauty than you could’ve ever imagined.
Speaker 1: (05:15)
And my third prediction is that people as a whole, we become, or at least people in the Western world, I believe that the Eastern world has a better handle on this than we do. But I think we are going to become clear about what really matters to us and really focus on that. I know that that’s happened for me. I know that there are things in my business, and in my personal life that I’ve just stopped paying attention to because they truly don’t matter. I’ve stopped paying attention to ego metrics completely because they don’t matter. They make us feel good, but they don’t matter. In my personal life, I’ve stopped paying attention to where something is giving me a no that I want to be a yes. I’ve stopped fighting with reality and most importantly I’ve put my time and my energy into spreading a message of love and being present for others and making sure that when someone is in the context of me, whether it’s a social media post, whether they’re at an event that I host, whether they just are in a conversation with me at the grocery store, that I am doing my best to stay present and to be a voice of love because I believe that’s what we need most in this world.
Speaker 1: (06:58)
And what I would offer to you as you’re heading into this new year is I know that new year’s resolutions are so big right now or maybe it’s at your picking your word or maybe it’s you’re making your plan, and I want to offer you an alternative to creating a document, whether it’s a big document or a small document that potentially says do this differently. And the underlying context of it is because you did it wrong last chance you did it wrong or not good enough this last decade. What I would offer you is look back over your life to this point and see what you’ve done really well. See where the big wins have come from. See where when you reach the last day of your life, and you look back on it, what memories, what choice is, what decisions? What actions have you taken up until this point that on your very last day on the planet, you’re looking back over them and savoring them and just feeling so proud of yourself and just so grateful for having had the experience on this planet.
Speaker 1: (08:16)
Find the collection of those things and then do more of that. Celebrate the greatness that is within you. Celebrate the greatness you have created already because that is what we all need in this world from you and that is the very thing that will allow in more money, more love, more support, more of all of the good things will come to the vibration of your own greatness, and your own greatness has already been experienced on the planet many times over. I promise you on the other side of veil; you have an entire cheering squad that cannot believe all of the magic you have created on the planet already. And if that cheering squad, that metaphysical team could come and embody a human voice and speak to you right now, I promise you what they would say is do more of that. Do more of the magical love, build expressions of your beingness on the planet, and everything get just gets better and better and better. And if you want to put a plan together or a word, let it be something that expresses and a more expanded version of yourself, not something you think you should do. When I see someone pick a word like focus, that just breaks my heart because come on. How many people want to hire your focus? Some of the best, most magical places come from being unfocused. No, that doesn’t mean me. In my professional role as a coach, I don’t ask my clients to focus. I owe 100% to focus is a beautiful thing, but for an entire year to be, to be embodied in a word and that word to be focused, Oh, that just makes a magical heart feel sad, and that is your word. Here’s the one thing I would offer. If that word makes you feel alive and expanded and magical and then totally ignore my opinion of that word. You have picked the most perfect word for your years word, but if you have not yet picked a word that feels sparkly and magical or you’ve picked a word, and it doesn’t make you feel sparkly and magical, please, please, please pick a new one.
Speaker 1: (10:43)
Pick the new one, pick magic, pick beauty, pick expansion, pick wealth. All of them, to me, have a sparkle around them. Most important is what matters to you. Certainly not what matters to me, so focus on you, but as you choose this year, based on what will make it fun, or bring you joy. And if you know what would bring you joy and make you have more fun is to make a lot more money. There’s nothing wrong with that. There’s nothing wrong with that. That is a fair goal, and it’s fair to make plans to create that money. Just make sure you open your hands as you create that intention, and you don’t grasp it, you open it, your palms and hold them wide out to the universe and say this, this is what I most want. Help me. And then remember that you’re not doing it alone.
Speaker 1: (11:44)
You are absolutely not doing it alone. You have a team of light that is helping you, and I would suspect a large team of humans you don’t even about yet. Then we’ll gather around to lift you up because all of us are excited for you to lift yourself up and for you to grow and for you to expand. Because as each of us expands, we give everyone else the opportunity for that expansion. And so I will leave that there and simply say that my word for this podcast, for this one day, is love and I wish you loads and loads of it.
