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.
0:00:36.6 S2: Hey there, welcome to this episode of the space for magic podcast. I’m your host, Patty Lennon, and today I wanted to update you on what’s been alive for me, both personally and as we go through the weeks in the magic lounge where at the beginning of the week, I’m always doing a reading to tap into What are the forces what are the energies available to us to make the coming week easier or just what do we need to be prepared for? So when I step into those readings, I’m coming in generally with very little agenda, what I typically do is reflect on the previous week, and maybe some things I start to see that were synchronous or just repetitive signs or repetitive questions, so for instance, at the time that I’m recording this podcast the week before, I had been approached by three separate people asking for my advice, and in each of those circumstances, the advice that came through me, which is how I generally try to offer people help is to not let my ego get in the way and just sort of see what flows through the advice that each person got was, what do you need to do right now to feel safe, and that feels very interesting to me because that is not how…
0:02:11.8 S2: I find most people are guided when I let advice come through, but it seems to be really important right now, and so I’m gonna speak to that a bit about why I think that’s the advice that spirit is giving people, and then reflecting on that, bringing that energy to the reading. As I come into the reading for the group, I’m considering you, Where are people not honoring their needs for safety, and why is that, and why is that alive right now, and what else can be brought to it… Right. And then I really let the cards kinda guide me from there, I wanna talk about that because it directly intersects why I think that question is so alive, directly intersect with what’s going on for me personally, and also I think what’s going on at a broader sense. So in each of the cases of those individuals that asked for advice and really advice, I mean they’re saying, Can you help me find my right answer? They all are individuals who tend to be the caretakers of many and also tend to do the hard work, make the tough decisions, never back down from a challenge.
0:03:40.5 S2: These are all admirable qualities, if they are used in balance with self-care and self-honoring and self-love, and what I mean by that is you… And I’m gonna put this to you now, so you can apply this directly to yourself is, Are you always the grown up in the room, spiritually speaking or otherwise, and are you making decisions on behalf of the group, meaning you’re doing the tough work, because you’re basically making up for other people, not doing their tough work, and that seems a little snarky or maybe a little judgmental on my part, maybe, but… It’s not coming from a place of judgment. It really isn’t. And I’m thinking of these people specifically that I was talking to is they were not honoring the answer that was right for them because it might somehow negatively impact another person who they perceive to not be as strong as they were and maybe really in objective senses aren’t as strong… Haven’t done as much in our work, haven’t done as much courage work, but really the time has come for every single person to honor what they need, and we’re all going through a period where our shadow work is coming to the surface in a different way, and I can’t remember if we talked about this on the last week’s podcast or not, but bear with me, what is happening right now is that things really base needs, the need for fun, maybe the need for frivolous-ness, the needs to just not be responsible for the entire world, maybe some feelings of like, Screw everyone else.
0:05:37.9 S2: Taking care of myself or taking my toys from the sand box and going and playing somewhere else, we don’t wanna always give into those inclinations, so very… The voice almost is this voice of a baby or it’s an immature voice, but we do need to hear it, we do need to listen to this voice. It might be a voice that says like, I just wanna go play, I don’t wanna worry about everything right now, and that’s okay. That is okay, because you need times where you’re catering to that inner child or that inner teenager, and right now, that part of you is emerging and asking for intention, and depending on where you are in your journey, that may look very different for you versus maybe a friend or me or someone else. Right, but it’s really important that you pay attention to it. And the thing is, when we’re used to being the grown up in the room, our mind can be really over-developed on how to do that, and so it can put us in conflict with what we really need, and that was what was happening with these individuals I’m talking about is, it didn’t really take them long to figure out what the right answer was, and that question, what would make you feel safe, instantly drop them into the right answer, but their mind was fighting against it, their mind who’s fighting against it, and just to give you, a point of contrast, usually the questions I feel guided to ask someone is What would feel like relief, what we feel like love what we feel like grounding it.
0:07:28.2 S2: So it’s not that the questions that I normally get guided to ask people are significantly different, aggressive, even than, what would make you feel safe, but what would make you feel safe? Doesn’t always give you the answer. The same answer as, what would make you feel grounded? Safety requires less of your own will involved in getting what you need, and I think that’s a piece of it is not using your will to make things happen right now, and really dropping down and Will is that third chakra or the yellow chakra. So going up from the bases, the red checker, the orange chakra, yellow green, light blue, indigo, and then lavender or a light purple, and as you move up from the bottom chakra up, you’re moving up from base levels of safety, like physical safety. Physical needs being met, and then that top chakra is all about spiritual connection, and then there are chakras even above that, but the third chakra, that yellow chakra is the will chakra, and that can be very depleted when we try and make other people do things we need them to do it. I’m often having to pull my energy back into my will-center when I’m working with my teenagers because I know what the right answer is for them, but you need to remember that they are independent individuals now, they are not small children, and they need to develop their own understanding of what’s right for them.
0:09:04.4 S2: Right. And so pulling my energy back to that center, working with yellow stones when I feel depleted in that area, because I’ve over effort-ed my will on them right now. So what would feel like relief often is something that would be soothing to the Will Center, what would make you feel safe as something that’s soothing to that first chakra. That safety chakra. And why we’re in that time is ’cause we’re re establishing harmony in our lives after last year, a five-year, a year of change, moving into a six year of harmony, we need to find a way to soothe ourselves from all of that change that really disrupts that lower chakra area, and so finding out What does that area need emotionally, physically, all of it is really important, and sometimes safety, the immediate answers of safety seem like immature answers or self-involved or self-centered, but they’re important because you need to lay that foundation of safety in order to move back into harmony and then to be able to produce results from this place of love. So like I said, I wanted to also share what was going on for me personally, and just to wrap up that first part is just if you’re struggling with some decisions right now, just asking yourself what would make you feel safe is really gonna guide you to an answer that is most likely appropriate for you now, and understanding that standing in that shadow work of those base or instincts is very important spiritually speaking.
0:10:52.5 S2: So for me personally, this kind of collides or coincides with this is, as I’ve shared here, I had originally intended to take December off to really rest and reboot, and that didn’t happen because of situations in my personal life now I’ve had enough distance from it to see that one, I need to take a much longer period and it wasn’t gonna be a complete like, Oh, I’m gonna let go of everything. Right, so this time I’m in right now is what I have called laying the fat, the fields lay fallow, so I’m really allowing the creative fields to just lay dormant in terms of not producing anything from them. So as of right now, it does not look like we are going to launch receiving school in the spring like we normally do, so that’s just… That’s an announcement. Now that could change because I really do try and honor intuition and inspiration, but as of right now, it looks like The Receiving School will not launch again until the fall, so if you were waiting for it… This is the first you’re hearing. You’ll be waiting until the fall, but that doesn’t mean everything is on pause and I’ll explain more about that as I tell you what it’s been like to let this field like fallow.
0:12:12.1 S2: So I’ve continued to record the podcast, obviously, you’re here with me, and I’m continuing to run the membership, and although I’m not doing any big launches for the membership, you are welcome to join us if you’re not part of the membership, it’s 37 a month, but you can go to pattylennon.com/magiclounge and join us there. There’s no commitment, it’s month to month, and there’s amazing, amazing things happening in the membership inside the community, which was always my goal. My goal for the magic lounge was not really to center the experience around me, but to center it around finding our people really to bring to be a beacon that attracted people who were thinking and acting on a common playing field, and I’m seeing that grow and grow and it’s gorgeous. But what you do get again, are those weekly readings, you get a monthly call with me, and that’s if you had any interest in playing with me right now, that’s really the only place to do it, so that’s the one place I am still showing up, but other than that, I’m really spending most of my days going inward, and sometimes going inward means reading a book, fiction, I’m only reading fiction right now…
0:13:26.0 S2: No non-fiction, no learning right now at the moment, and it’s really interesting that I’m only a couple of weeks into it, but already so much has started to bubble and emerge and new ideas are coming. Now, new idea they’re coming. And then just within the last couple of days, what I found myself doing was really putting more structure to those ideas, and I already feel myself drained from putting that structure there. So I’m gonna have to take a step back again. The guidance I was given by my Spirit guides was I can write ideas down as they come, but I’m not meant to take action on them, so what I believe will be offered in spring, which I don’t have the clear what it is yet, but it’s going to be an experienced virtual experience where I will be helping whoever joins me on this experience, this program, to deepen that they are Intuitive Gifts specifically in relationship to your angels and your spirit guides, so we’ll be walking through… And again, I don’t know the time frame you up, I believe it’s gonna be like four to six weeks, working deeply with your spirit guides and angels will be working with Oracle Cards, so this will be you.
0:15:00.5 S2: If you join me, you’ll be learning how to deepen your relationship with your spirit guides and your angels, so that’s something that I know has been really alive for people, and important right now is that we get that one-to-one advice from our specific spirit, so that’s gonna be coming. So it’s really exciting. It feels like there’s another oracle card deck emerging and live experiences, so it looks like there may be two retreats that I’m putting on this year. Again, all of this is very new, and the minute I start to put structure to it, it really does start to feel depleting, and so it’s important to pay attention to that I’m telling you, the listener, because any time you start to feel that depletion, that’s when you… You’ve gone too far or past your 100%, but it’s really exciting, it’s been a long time since so many new ideas are coming and so many new possibilities are coming, and that comes from letting those… You’re not always tilling those fields for roots and vegetables and fruit you… We can’t always be in a harvest now, that may not be where you are in your particular journey, not everyone necessarily needs to be a letting their fields lie fallow.
0:16:19.4 S2: That’s just me because I’ve been producing, especially last year, when I produced so much creatively with the book, the membership was brand new and the oracle card deck was produced as well as there were new resources built for the journal, so that was a lot… In a single year. And so, but it looks like there’s gonna be a lot this year too, I just need to balance it with down time, and so there’s… The key word is balance, and that’s the word for you is what is it that you need to create balance for yourself right now, what will bring you into harmony with yourself, what is the need you’ve been putting off… This is a year where you will not be able to tolerate things easily, so if you’ve been putting up with things, really learning how to release those toleration is gonna be essential for your Harmony. There was a term I used to use a lot in my earlier work and I haven’t really brought it into the space for magic work, but I think maybe I’ll revive it, which is joy suckers. So I used to talk about a lot about removing toleration from people’s eyes when I was first starting to teach, especially business owners, how to work more deeply with spirit with their spirit team.
0:17:40.0 S2: One of the big blocks that creates resistance is having things in our life that we tolerate that we know shouldn’t be there, but then how do you figure out what to get rid of, and so the term I had coined was Joy suckers. Look for the joy suckers, don’t make this a big project, just look for the joy suckers. Where is there a joy sucker in your life? So if you’re looking for something to do right now that will help deepen your connection to your spear team and also allowing more abundance into your life and let you drop into harmony, into balances, what is sucking joy from your life? It can be something simple like, you’ve had a coat sitting at the dry cleaners and you keep meaning to pick it up, or me, I’ve been reading a lot and I’ve been at the library weekly, and I usually come home with about 10 books because I know within two pages, if I’m gonna enjoy a book or not, and so on, once I start reading a book, I do not commit to finishing it, I only finish books that feel enjoyable, so there’s often a turn of books, and so right now, having books…
0:18:50.1 S2: I know I’ve either finished or I’m not gonna read lying around, irritate me, so I try and get those back to Library, I also wanna make sure they’re back into circulation ’cause there’s no reason for them to be sitting in my house, so just doing simple acts that remove irritations, remove joy suckers from your life is a great way to bring yourself into balance and downtime, downtime, downtime, downtime just… It’s more important than ever. So please, please give it to yourself, especially if things aren’t working the way you want them to, the inclination is to do more and to try and fix it, don’t… They’re not working. Because they’re not supposed to work. And it’s temporary, I promise you, it’s temporary, just give yourself a little space.
0:19:38.0 S1: Alright, so with that, I send you my love, and I’m so happy for you spending this time with me and I wish you nothing but magic this week. Hey, thanks for listening.
