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.
0:00:36.6: Hello, welcome to this episode of the Space for Magic podcast, Patty here. And this episode is being brought to you by the Space for Magic Facebook Group. This is a community that I host on Facebook. It’s absolutely free, you are welcome to join us if you haven’t already, and we love to have conversations that are relative to what’s going on in the planet, what’s squeezing out space for magic and what can create it… Which is what I wanna talk to you about today. So what we’re seeing right now is energetic shifts that are really giving us a sense… For many of us, a sense that the world is closing in on us, the way that I’ve seen this show up is people saying that it feels like they’re walking through mud, that they fell for a moment, they were really ready to make something happen in this new year, and now it’s like every time they take a step forward, they feel that they’re either being pulled back or just the Herculean effort to make that step is exhausting them. What I’m also seeing is incredibly challenging situations being just dropped in the lives of seemingly good people…
0:01:48.2: People who were doing all the right things. Right. How did this happen now? And I don’t claim to understand the wisdom of the universe, I do have faith in divine design that whatever happens is happening with a bigger purpose in place, but when the thing that shows up is child mental health issues or cancer or an unexpected loss, a loss of a job or someone you love, or an illness, believing that there’s divine design to that isn’t helpful, and I don’t suggest that it is, but what I do wanna offer is that for the time that we’re in if you’re feeling this feeling, this feeling like the world’s closing in on you, or just that you’re overwhelmed, or you’re frustrated because things feel harder than… They feel like they should feel, you’re not alone. And what I’ve seen when I’ve tapped into this energy is that this is going to be with us till right around March 6, that’s the date I keep getting and, either that week or the the following week, and Deana Paqua, who we had on this podcast a couple of times she is… One of the healers I work with, she’s a shamanic practitioner, when she saw that, I commented that she actually gave me feedback that that was right at the end of Mercury retrograde, so I guess all of this is coinciding with Mercury retrograde, although I don’t blame it all on poor Mercury, I think there’s real value in the retrograde we experience because if you’re not that familiar with them, typically when people talk about mercury going into retrograde, which just means it’s moving in an opposite direction, so it’s either in a retrograde or it goes direct, and when it’s in retrograde, people talk about communication being a problem, technology being a problem, etcetera, etcetera, but the real gift in that is sort of the divine design in that, is that when communication isn’t easy, it causes us to be much more exacting in the way we communicate, and that’s really the gift for us is for us to slow down to really think about what we wanna say, to really think about agreements we wanna enter into, and to not just expect technology to move at the speed of light.
0:04:05.3: What if it doesn’t move about the speed of light, right… What happens then? And all of that is helping us cultivate patience, and this is really what I’ve been talking about a lot lately, I’ve been talking about it in my Mastermind, talking about it in my list in my larger community, and now, here, and we are having a big discussion on that, and I did do a card reading on how to navigate that in the Facebook group, so in the space for magic Facebook group. So I will drop a link in the show notes so you can join us in that conversation, or you can just go ahead to facebook.com/groups/spaceformagic one word, and if you’re not already a member, just request to join. Answer a couple of questions, and we will be happy to approve you and bring you into the group. The only reason we have an approval process is we just wanna make sure that we’re not getting any bots in the group, any fake profiles in any case, as we look at this time that we’re in… The big theme is patience, and I’ll speak specifically to what I’m seeing in the mastermind, which our mastermind is designed to allow our members to grow their active receiving muscles, which is a little bit different than receiving.
0:05:27.4: So receiving is what I talk about in the receiving school building, that receiving muscle is something we’re just not trained to do from a young age, we are trained to go to do to make things happen, but we’re not taught how to receive that once we do… There’s a period where we don’t do where we just be, and then the universe responds, the divine responds, even just the earth plane responds we’re only taught one side of the equation, it’s the balancing of this side of the equation, there really is what makes life feel easeful it makes life feel fun, adventurous, joyful, all those things, and if those things have been missing lately, then I promise you it’s the receiving piece of the equation that you are missing. Now with active receiving, and I’m gonna talk to you in this podcast, I’m gonna give you something to do. So I know even in that, you’re probably thinking, but how do I make it stop or change or do something else? And so I’m gonna give you a short process to use, but I would just wanna talk for a minute about what active receiving is in relationship to receiving.
0:06:38.1: So active receiving is when we say… Okay. Yes, and these are all individuals who have gone through the receiving schools, you not only be in this mastermind, if you’ve already gone through the Receiving School and really kind of understood those principles and gotten the basic principles of receiving, which is… You’re learning that, Okay, I’ve done a lot and I haven’t actually let in all the gifts that are the natural result of everything I’ve put out into the world, and so that’s what receiving school does, is it lets you start to balance that equation. Well, once that balancing starts to happen, what’s gonna occur is that you have an eagerness to participate, to co-create with the universe. Once that balance starts to happen and the exhaustion goes away, the confusion starts to fade, which is the natural reaction of balancing out that receiving equation, then you wanna know, Okay, well, how do I go back out into the world doing things without getting back into this over effort in place without getting into this place of constantly doing and not receiving in the same… At the same level that I’m doing it, and so that’s the active receiving process, and I’m gonna give you the basic tools here on this podcast, so there’s no secrets here, I want you to understand, I’m a big proponent of being very transparent at what I teach the challenges if you trying to leap into this process without really balancing out your receiving energy, it doesn’t always work, but I do think it’s really helpful for the time that we’re in, because whether you’ve gone through receiving school…
0:08:16.7: Well, whether you start to learn and not necessarily gone through receiving school, you could do it lots of different ways, but learn to receive at the same level that you put effort out into the world, that you give to others, that you share your gifts with the world. Even if you haven’t mastered that yet, I’m sure right now, it is likely you’re trying to accomplish something, you’re trying to do something and it feels hard, maybe it feels like you’re walking through mud, some of that stuff I talked about earlier. These things I’m hearing. So what’s happening with this energy pressures, sort of this pressure system that’s keeping us in place is that we are really being guided to cultivate patience, which can be really, really hard, and that’s what’s going on in the mastermind. So at the very… We’re still in the early stages of the mastermind and the first couple of weeks, and what we’re doing here is we’re crafting a plan on how to take action, and so here are the steps that you use, and I’m gonna show you how to use this process in the time that we’re in so that you are able to understand how to navigate this pressure system’s, energetic pressure system, so when you want something to come into your life, you wanna bring something to life, maybe you want to get healthier, you wanna get a new home, you wanna get a new job, you want more money flowing in, any of these things are goals that relate to receiving because you’re gonna do some things, but then those things have to come back to you, right? So if you wanna get healthy or ultimately your body needs to respond to the actions you’re taking it, and maybe if it involves food, it needs to be easy to get the food that you need, or if it’s money coming in, you can do certain things, but ultimately the flow has to come to you, that’s the receiving piece of it, right.
0:10:05.1: Well, what we need to understand as a baseline concept is that the universe, the divine, only asks us to do our 100%. And if you’ve been listening for a while, this is not the first time you’re hearing me talk about this, but maybe I’ll land a little bit differently, so if your 100%… Let’s say you and I are both looking for a home, and we have a dream home, but our budget doesn’t meet what we think we need to acquire that dream home, or there’s some factor it… But we’ll just use budget. And you and I both have the same challenge. You know what our dream home is, but the money it cost to acquire that dream home, we don’t have access to either. We can’t get the loan… We don’t have the down payment. It’s beyond our budget, whatever. And you and I both have this, but we know using these principles, is that if the desire is within us to have this particular home, that we feel the full soul alignment with this particular home, that the universe does have a plan for us to get… Right, and so then what we need to embrace is that our responsibilities to do our 100%…
0:11:15.4: Well, let’s say I have more resources than you or vice versa. You have more resources than me, the person with more resources, their 100% is going to look different than the person with less resources, so the divine does not ask you and I to do the exact same things to equal our 100%, the person with more resources has a bigger 100% to fulfill than someone with less resources, and why this is such good news is that once you’ve done the 100% that’s yours to do, the universe will take over, and so why a plan is so helpful is… It’s what I call a prenuptial agreement with the universe, or it’s a pre-nuptial agreement with the Divine. What you do is you sit down and you say, write out all the things you know you can do to make this happen. And then baby step them, get them down into tiny, tiny steps that are completely doable on their own, so that you can’t get into overwhelm, and then you put those baby steps onto your calendar. Now, the difference in that type of planning versus the planning we are typically taught, is that we’ve got to figure out every step, we’ve got to figure out every step to do, if we’re going to make something happen, but in the act of receiving process, that’s not the case and this is what I found for all of us, is if we just map out what we know we can do, that’s where the magic starts to come in, we have to trust that if we do what we know we can do, then the universe will take over and that’s where trust comes in, and that’s where patience comes in, and what we’re seeing in the mastermind, they’ve seen this with other groups as well, when I’ve taught this process is once you get all that down, there’s a couple of things happen.
0:13:00.4: First is maybe you resist even doing the baby steps, they feel like a waste of time, what’s the point? Or once you get them down, you wonder, Is it enough… Both of those things are symptoms of us holding ourselves back from the universe or the divine taking care of us, that’s where we squeeze out space for magic, because when we don’t actually do the baby steps, what’s really going on is we don’t have faith that the universe is gonna show up, so it doesn’t really seem like there’s a point to it, right. Or we’re actually scared that we might… It might actually be that easy, and that holds us back to as cooky as that is, But it does, but I promise you, you do this process and it lifts this huge weight off your shoulder. Now, the other side of it is, once they’re done, wondering if they’re enough, that’s a pretty common challenge as well, and that’s where I think a lot of people can be, whether you’re in the mastermind with me, whether you’re doing this process exactly the way I’m talking about, it… The place we’re in right now is, you may be feeling like what you can actually accomplish to achieve a goal is so small in comparison to what needs to happen, that you’re ready to give up, and here’s the really good news, if what you’re able to accomplish is less than what you could do even last year or the year before, that is a proof that your goal is that much further away, that’s proof that the divine…
0:14:28.6: That the universe is swooping in and asking you to surrender it, this energetic pressure system we’re in is here to teach us how to surrender and have patience. How to take our timing and turn it into divine timing or universal timing, divine design. Where we’re gonna say, I trust that there is a wisdom for my life that’s bigger than my human brain understands, and if you can really feel into that, if you can really just trust that what you want to happen is gonna happen, it just may happen at a different time frame than you thought, if you knew for sure… Let’s say you wanted to happen in June, but… You knew for sure it was gonna happen in December. What would that feel like? And I do this with my clients all the time, and always, I tell them, well, but if you’re new for sure it was gonna happen six months after when you want to happen, then how would you feel? And the answer is always, Well, then I guess I could relax. I guess I could have peace with it, but the thing is, we’re just… When we don’t feel like it can happen in the time we wanted to, the automatic place we go to is that it’s never gonna happen, and here’s what I promise you, if you have a desire in your heart, you have a desire in your soul, the universe, the divine would not allow for that desire to be birth if it could not be brought into reality, I promise you, but the timeline may look different than what you’re expecting, and here’s where patience comes in and where patience is so frustrating, and then it comes in contact with trust, right? Which for a lot of us, trust is an issue, but this is what we’re being asked to cultivate right now, is that patience, which I know is hard, I know it’s hard when everything already felt difficult, whatever problem you’re trying to solve the problem been with you for so long, you just wanted to be done right, you want the goal to be achieved, you…
0:16:25.0: You wanna be at the finish line, the thing is though, if you can bring some patience into that, then everything gets so much easier, and I put this line in my email that went out last week, which was… And this just came to me, but a lot of people have quoted it, so I think it’s something that’s resonating, is that patience is the partner of possibility, and when you let them play together, that’s when things get easy. Now, what’s really fascinating about that particular quote and that email and everything I just shared with you, which is really just an extension of what I put in that email, is that someone who has been reading my emails for four years replied to me and told me I was a mind control puppeteer, and I thought that was so fascinating, and it didn’t bother me. Now look, everyone’s gone through challenging times right now, and it’s creating reactions, and everyone… But I had put that out on my Facebook page just to my friends like, Oh, you’re really nailing your contact content when someone calls you a mind-controlling puppeteer, right. And people assumed it was a troll, but it wasn’t a troll, it was someone who has been reading my stuff for years, reading my stuff for years, and I thought that so fascinating because there’s things I put out in the past that I can understand go against people’s belief systems and they would have thought maybe I was trying to brain wash you into my woo-woo way of thinking.
0:17:55.1: Although I feel, for the most part, I’m a fairly pragmatic woo person, if you’re gonna call me woo at all, but this particular email was pretty Muggle, I’m talking about… Yeah, I’m talking about energy systems and stuff, but I’m talking basically about, Look, we just have to be patient. That’s the answer here, that we just have to slow down and be patience and cultivate patience, and it’s annoying, and it’s hard, right. Which is why I did that card reading in the Facebook group to kinda get some guidance from our spirit guides on how to do that, how to navigate this time. And I thought, Wow, that after reading my emails for four years, that this is the thing, the person equated to mind control, this is the thing that got him so upset that he felt I was a puppeteer, was to ask and not even ask, just offer the patience is what will make it easier for us to stay connected to a life of possibility. How fascinating, and I don’t have any more conclusions other than the fact that that’s where I think we’ve gotten to, is that basic values that two and three and four generations ago had mastered understanding patience in this world of electronics that connects us so fast, of debt increasing so much where having the money to get something no longer is a limitation, that where we get frustrated if it takes us one, two, three seconds to connect to a website or for a phone call to connect, where everything is moving so fast, where that’s…
0:19:36.7: Really, the hypnotic trance that many of us have fallen into is this belief that instant gratification is the natural order of things, that someone be so triggered by what I said to consider patience to be mind control, that’s just fascinating because when I look back on former generations, I appreciate so much the level of patience they had to make something happen in the world and to bring possibility to life, and I think we all could benefit from cultivating some of that right now, so if you are in that sort of energetic strangle, hold that the universe has created for us in order to create a stronger muscle around patience, I just wanna remind you that if you’re not capable of doing as much of achieving as much things you’re moving slower, it’s not proof that the possibility of your life has changed. The possibilities are all there, every desire you have is still as alive as it ever was, but the amount that you have to do to bring it to life has decreased, your 100% has decreased, which just means universe is asking you to just give it over. Just hand it over. And so besides that short process, I gave you earlier, writing your goal down, writing down all the steps you know you can take and then baby-stepping them and putting them on to a calendar, which is powerful, it’s powerful stuff to do this besides that.
0:21:10.3: The one thing you can do right now is write down everything you think needs to happen in order to bring a goal to life, and I want you to circle everything that needs to happen that you have no idea how it could happen, that you just don’t have the bandwidth, or the resources or the energy to do… I want you to circle every single thing on that list that you equate to being too hard or just impossible, and I want you to just point it all into one circle, to just draw a line into one big circle and write universe or divine in that circle, and they just want you to feel yourself giving all of those things over to the universe, understanding, that’s all you have to do, and that it’s all the divine wants you to do is just hand it over, do what you can do, but everything else, you just hand it over… And when I say do what you can do just to understand that includes resting, it doesn’t mean working every minute of every day, you wanna include rest and fun and play as part of your needs, so whatever you can do outside of fun and rest and play, reasonable amounts of time, that’s your 100%, and you can just hand everything else over to the universe.
0:22:27.0: Now, I know in the Facebook group we’ve had a lot of questions about this, so if you wanna be a part of this conversation, please please join us there. Again, the link to the specific conversation is gonna be in the show notes as well as the general link to the group, and I want you to get excited ’cause I am working on some new video trainings, I’ve got some stuff coming up about how to get signs how to help block toxic energy. I know these are two big things coming up for people, and we’ve got a bigger training coming in March, later in March on the full-making space for a magic training series. So we got lots of good stuff coming up, I got your back, I’m here, I know what it feels like right now, a pain this time in space, and I’m gonna tell you on behalf of all your spirit guides and angels and ancestors, they are just so darn proud of you, they really are. Everyone on the other side of the veil see what it’s like here, and they see the warrior that you are, and they know it, and they have your back.
