Patty shares a personal story that came up when she was looking forward to celebrating her 20th wedding anniversary. A big takeaway is that what she received in life, was so much better than what she’d imagined as a young girl.
We put so much pressure on ourselves to know what the perfect life looks like, or what we want to manifest, when what we need to realize is that the place we’re going is so beyond what we can imagine.
We can get lost inside the need to have certain gaps filled instead of waiting for what is best for us. When you are manifesting, it’s important to remember that what comes into our life is always what is in our best interest.
What would it feel like to get better than what you can imagine?
Holding the desire while handing it over to the divine is how you can receive more and better than you can even see right now. If you feel like you’re doing it “wrong” Patty wants you to know that’s not true.
She’s hosting a free event to help you understand what manifestation really looks like in just 15 minutes a day!
This is the first time she’s done this outside her membership so join Patty to take the mystery out of manifestation.

Sometimes, we put so much pressure on ourselves, to know exactly what our perfect life looks like or what we want to manifest or what we want to attract into our life. Or what, what is the life that will make us happy. And sometimes what we need to realize is the place we’re going to the place we feel is out there. We don’t have the thoughts or the understanding or the freedom from our limiting beliefs to even write it down. 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 X 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, I want to talk to you about love, and manifestation and maybe a little bit about having the life that you desire. Or maybe a better way to say it is the life that you deserve. And when I’m recording this, we’re just on the cusp. My husband and I are just on the cusp of celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. We’ve been together for over 22 years now. And this anniversary has been making me think just thinking back over the years and and as I was doing that a memory popped in. I don’t know how long we had been married. But I had left banking at that point. And I was into my more woo or woo curious where, and I was probably in my coaching program getting certified. Because I remember questions like this used to pop up all the time and someone a teacher facilitator said, If you could go back to an earlier version of yourself, what would you tell her. And immediately, a memory dropped in a memory I had completely forgotten about. I don’t think I had revisited it since it had happened. I was in maybe seventh or eighth grade, standing in the playground of our school and I had gone to a grammar school that was K through eight. So all different age children running around. But knowing I was on the older side of those children, and looking around and realizing that I was missing something. And the thing I was missing was a boyfriend. And at that point, boys and girls had started to show, you know that they liked each other. I don’t think we were it was a Catholic school. So I don’t think anyone was admitting to per se dating. Because I think most of the parents back then, in the 70s probably would have said no to that. Or I guess we weren’t in the 70s by the time I was in eighth grade. So early 80s. But this sense that there were people that liked each other and more specifically, there were boys that liked girls, it was a very gendered specific experience at that time in my life. And that I was not one of them. I was not one of the girls that were liked. Now looking back on it. I can’t say that that was the truth. I think that was an insecurity coming through as a limiting belief coming through. But the truth, my truth in that moment was that I was not one of those girls, and it didn’t hurt. It was not and maybe when you’re listening to this, you’re feeling really sorry for me Don’t don’t at all.
Because part of that moment in that time in my life was you know, people used to always tell me the adults in my life used to always tell me, I was wise beyond my years and I felt it. I just always had felt more comfortable with adults than I did with kids. Even though I had friends. I just felt more in place in the adult world. And yet there was an innocence about me. I think from a social development standpoint, I was probably closer to 10 or 11. I had not hit puberty completely by then. And so it wasn’t so much that I felt sad or left out out. It was a feeling of just an absence and wondering, you know, when I would have my first boyfriend, when would a boy look at me and want to date me? Because to me that was all that mattered, right? It wasn’t like, when would I find someone that I wanted to date is when would someone want me right? And that’s a very specific experience of not so much wondering what I want, but just thinking that, to have an experience, it would need to want me. And I remember when that person had asked me know, if you could go back to a version of yourself and tell her something immediately, that was the moment I thought of, and I would go back to her and tell her, Oh, it happens. It happens in such beautiful and amazing ways. And you meet so many, many men, there isn’t just one, there is many, and you have so many fun adventures. And then immediately after I thought that, that’s what I would tell her, what I realized I really wanted to tell her was the one that you’re feeling inside of you that feeling of being treasured, and loved and adored, that one does come. And I was immediately feeling my husband, just the feeling of having him in my life, and being in relationship to him. And not just wanting to go back to that moment and say, of course, you’re going to have boyfriends. Of course you are and here’s what’s going to happen. But letting her know you’re going to have the best boyfriend, the best boyfriend that becomes your husband, that makes you feel so safe and wanted in the world. And it’s interesting that what I received over the course of my life was so much better than what that little version of me had wanted, if she had to write out what she wanted, it would have been just anyone wanting her. And yet, what I got, what I received was so much better. And that’s what I want her to understand was that the limiting beliefs she had and what was possible for her life. were removed over and over again, layer after layer after layer.
And the reason I’m telling you that story is because I think sometimes we put so much pressure on ourselves to know exactly what our perfect life looks like or what we want to manifest or what we want to attract into our life. Or what, what is the life that will make us happy. And sometimes what we need to realize is the place we’re going to the place we feel is out there, we don’t have the thoughts or the understanding or the freedom from our limiting beliefs to even write it down. That little version of myself could never have described, from that vantage point, the marriage that I have to the husband I have, there was so much that she needs to experience and learn and grow and evolve into to eventually wind up with the person that she had was so far beyond her understanding. And if she had had to put a timeline on it, I’m sure she would have wanted it to happen in the next six months or the next year. And yet, it was probably another three or four years before I had my first real boyfriend. But there was a lot of maturity that happened in that window of time. That made me able to show up with another person where I was fully myself, right? Where I wasn’t willing to just accept what came along. And as we’re walking through our lives, we can get lost inside the need to have certain gaps filled versus actually having what is best for us our most beautiful, expansive expression of our desires made manifest in our life. So why am I telling you that? Well, there’s a few things first is with the place that we’re in, in our evolution on this planet. What I’m hearing from a lot of people is a frustration level of a feeling of stuckness and boredom. And
I sense that there isn’t enough. And that’s okay. Because that’s, you know, that’s part and parcel for the time we’ve been through for what we’ve all been through. And also, it’s a factor of unprocessed loss, and not understanding the role that the last few years have played in each of our individual experiences. And also, not understanding that these experiences as much as they shape us and mold us and, and evolve us, they also get us stuck, because our brain starts looping in this place of just wanting gaps to be filled, rather than reaching for desires. And there’s a difference, because when you’re manifesting, you know, in the truest sense of the word, and a lot of times I poopoo, the word manifesting, because I think it’s just overused. And there’s a lot of pop cultureness around it. But when you look at what manifest truly is, which means something is brought into your life, in response to your desire for it, there’s a place in that manifestation process that’s often left out of the discussion, which is if it’s for your highest good, right, if it’s for your soul’s highest path. And so as, as we’re looking at the time we’re in, I think there really is a value of us embracing the ability to manifest into our lives, something better for ourselves, and for the people around us. Because generally speaking, I don’t know about you, but I kind of do know about you, because I have a feeling if you’re listening to this podcast, or like me, when your life gets better and better, you then share that and make the lives of the people around you better and better. And so there’s a real value in goodness, and both material and emotional needs being met and not just met at the basic level. But receiving at a level where you’re receiving at an overflow, then you’re getting more than enough, you’re getting better than you imagined. And I think there’s a real value in that right now of moving the dial in our lives. And moving us out of that stuck point. But I think the confusing part about manifesting that most people the misunderstanding that most people get stuck in is that you need to figure it all out, right. And actually, I would say beyond that is sometimes when you figure it out, if you get too attached to how it’s going to look that can really stop the better thing from coming in. I mean, I can tell you, when I was sitting in that playground, or standing in that playground, looking around, or whatever it was seventh or eighth grade, the other boys, there’s a handful of them, I would have liked nothing better than for one of them to pick me out and choose me and I probably back then would have thought they were great material for future husband. And I know where all of them are right now. And I can tell you, the ones I would have picked would not have been the one that would have been the best options for me, right. And so there’s a real value in not knowing how it’s all gonna work out, and not getting super attached. But really holding that delicate balance of having the seed of your desire, releasing limiting beliefs, and then handing it over to the Divine or handing it over to the universe. It is a process that I see a lot of people get lost in. Sometimes they get lost in that first stage, because they’ve been stuck for so long. They don’t even know what they want right now, if that’s you, you don’t even know what you want. I will tell you, uncovering the seed of your desire is critical. It really is critical. And I’ll tell you another story in a minute about why. The second part is you may not realize where your limiting beliefs are keeping a barrier like a roof over what you can possibly have. And then the third part is if you’re just not sure how do I let go and hand it over and open to receiving then that can be the sticking point. So if any of those rang true for you, I do have some good news. And that is that I am going to be hosting a five day event called manifestation for grownups now, it’s quite possible that title changes a little bit by the time that this podcast drops because I’m recording this a couple of weeks early and I’m mobile a bit on the fence about the name but I want to explain to you what it means. So first of all, this five day event is happening beginning October 17. You can sign up today go to Pattylennon.com/manifest, you’ll be brought into the group into the community that’s going to be doing this experience together. And I also have some bonus material coming up. If you sign up early, we’ve got some card readings going on some fun games where you can win prizes, lots of fun stuff to really get that fun playful energy going. That is the energy of non attachment. So the quicker and earlier you sign up, the more I can help you start to bubble up that fizzy, wonderful energy of manifestation. So go to pattylennon.com/manifest. And we’ll put that link in the shownotes. But the reason I’m on the fence about the name is what I’m trying to convey is that this is a manifestation process that has none of the nonsense that I usually see out there. There’s just so much out there that conveys that if the thing that you desire isn’t showing up, that somehow you’re doing it wrong, that you’re not visualizing enough, and that you’re not living as if enough or you’re not something enough, I promise you, none of that is true. It’s just not true. So this process is going to exclude all of that nonsense. It’s also going to exclude all the kind of extra stuff that I just see a lot of manifestation processes get complicated, require materials, the only material you’ll need is a piece of paper and a pen, we’re even going to be giving you a workbook to go with it. So really a printer, if you can print out the workbook or follow the workbook online, that’s sufficient, you do not need any other materials to do this. The other part is that, you know, manifestation processes that I’ve seen out there can take quite a bit of time, sometimes not all of them, but a lot of them. And most people that would identify as like, I’m just too old for this nonsense, or I’m just too tired for this nonsense, don’t have hours and hours to give to processes. So if that’s you, this will be for you as well, because we’re keeping it to 15 minutes a day, for five days. That’s all you’ll need to do to complete this process. Now, I will tell you, I have tested this process. I’ve tested this process with private clients. And just earlier this year, did it for the first time just for my members. So we had about your 200 members, 200 plus members went through this process. I would say based on the responses, we got probably 100 Maybe a little bit more than 100 were super active in it. The others were kind of watching from the sidelines. And the ones who actively engaged it said it was so easy. Each day’s activity carried you along to the next one, meaning By day three, which is when most people fall off of a five day process, we really didn’t lose anybody, because they were just so excited about the following day’s activity. They didn’t have to manufacture that excitement. It was produced for them based on how easy and how much was shifting for them each and every day. So in day one and two, we’re going to work on uncovering what those seeds of desires are for you. So if you are like I don’t even know what I want anymore patty. I don’t know what makes me happy. I don’t know what will make me jump out of bed, excited about my life, if that’s you, day 1 and 2 are gonna get you there. If you’re thinking, I suspect I may have some limiting beliefs getting in the way. Well, good news, day three is going to take care of that for you. In day four, you’re going to get a very delicious exercise that’s going to help you tell a new story about your life and telling this story, in your mind is one of the most powerful ways to shift things for you. This is not about living as if you’re gonna be rewriting your life as if it’s already happening. And you believe it’s already happening. Because you know what, that actually doesn’t work for probably 50 to 60% of the population. You heard it here, folks, if you have done exercises where people have told you to act as if you already have something, and that just hasn’t worked for you. Good news, you won’t have to do that here. Now, if it has worked for you, you’ll be able to apply that technique today for but you don’t have to because here’s the thing, for those of us who have a stronger developed left brain meaning we are much more linear either by birth or by just the way we grew up and ended up becoming raising my hand as a former banker, I just have very highly developed linear systems. It’s hard for me to believe things that don’t actually exist. That is why acting as if doesn’t work for some of us and Why there’s an alternate to that that actually does, that’s what you’re gonna get number four, and then day five, you’re going to get an understanding of how you hand it off to the universe to the divine. So if you’ve been looking for that, I’m so happy to tell you, I’ll be sharing this with you now, only my paying clients have gotten this in the past and my members. And the reason I’m doing this free is for a couple of reasons. One is, I was so blown away by how much it shifted things for people that I knew I wanted to put this in front of many, many more people. The second reason is, when I put it out only to my list, and I let my list know, hey, we’re going to be doing this process. I know it’s fabulous, come join us in the membership, you can do it in, don’t come in come into the membership. And if you don’t love the membership, you can leave. And one of my friends was kind enough to be honest with me. And she said, Patty, I gotta tell you, you know, I’m happy to pay for any of your stuff. I love it, which she’s like one of my best friends in the world, she doesn’t have to pay for a single thing. But she does. She’s like, but just the idea of being part of a membership, it just was like, Ah, I don’t want to do and she’s like I what I really think you should do is you should just sell this process by itself, just sell it by itself. She’s like, because I think people would really want it just as a standalone. And I love that I love that offering of hers. And I did consider selling it as its own program, and I probably will sell it in the future. But the third reason, the reason I want to do this is because in another month or so we’re going to be opening up the doors to the receiving school. And what I realized is that this process is a perfect runway, to knowing if the receiving school is right for you or not. And so here’s a way for me to give an offering to my community to you, without any economic barriers to it, giving you the tools to really open yourself up to what’s possible for you and to start bringing it in. And at the end of that, if you decide to learn more about receiving and receiving school, then you can continue past that point. But even if that’s not the case for you, what’s going to happen is, things are going to start to shift and move. And new desires are going to awaken themselves inside of you, you’re going to have new experiences show up, whether it’s people, or abundance, or support, or divine communication, whatever it is that your deepest desires want for you what your soul wants for you, that’s going to show up. And I know you, if you’re here listening to this, it’s because you’re like me, and the more that shows up in your life, the more you share with others. And right now we need to be in a sense of overflow, the more of us that are in a place of overflow, the better and better everything is gonna get because when we’re in a state of overflow, it’s easier to be kind, it’s easier to be generous. And it’s those acts of kindness and generosity that start to create those ripples in the lake. That is our life that is this planet. Alright, so I told you, I was going to tell you a story on why it’s important to have a seed. Know and get the seed of what you want, right. So like I said, when I went back to that memory of my earlier self, I knew that even though she was expressing what she wanted as someone liking her, someone wanting to be her boyfriend, I felt what was inside of her was closer to what I have now with my husband, although what I have with my husband after 20 years and being together for close to 23 is so much bigger than that. But I know she wanted to be cherished. Right. Okay, so I think I’ve shared on here a couple of times that, you know, different speaking engagements I was booked for the events have been canceled. I missed a big event because when I got COVID It just seems like our live event experience options are shrinking, or just non existent. And I’ve really been feeling the absence of that. I love going to live events for so many reasons. But one of them is I love meeting new people, people who I wouldn’t have met otherwise, and just hearing their stories and feeling their energy and seeing what brings them alive. And I was talking to my friend Miriam about this and we were both expressing like our deep desire because we just had an event we were both speaking I had just gotten canceled. We were so bummed and I said okay Mira, and we’re just going to we’re going to manifest event, we’re going to manifest an event. And here are some of the awesome things about this manifestation. One is If this had been three or four years ago, pre pandemic, there were so many events out there, I would have gotten super granular about what I wanted the event to be, I would have been spending so much time hunting for it and trying to figure it out and asking around doing all this. But at this point, you know, events are few and far between. And I just realized the likelihood that I was going to be able to find this was so slim. And yet I knew that the divine could bring it to me. And so I just felt the desire that was it that exactly that 32nd conversation with Miriam, I’m
like, Alright, we’re just gonna manifest an event, the beginning of December, I specifically said that the beginning of December, because based on our schedules, in our businesses, that was really a good juicy time for us. And in fact, actually, Miriam would have preferred next year, so we’re going to work on that, because what I manifested, ended up coming just into my life. So that was the state of it was I just want a live event. And I could feel the feeling of the live event, I wanted it to be, you know, a higher end experience in terms of I wanted it to be in a nice venue, and I wanted it to be filled with people who were excited to be there, I want the opportunity to experience something new and learn and feel alive, right? Well, two days, I want to say maybe three days after that, my husband came into me and he said, Guess what, I won a sales contest. And we are going to be going to an all expense paid trip to Hawaii for the second week in December. That was within a few days, and there’s going to be a ton of people coming from all over all over the country, possibly all over the world, because he does work for a global company. And I’m not sure how far that contest extended. So now, I never envisioned an all expense paid trip to Hawaii with all these people who are in a totally different industry than I play in. But I know there’s gonna be so much for me to learn there and grow from and new people for me, to me. And basically, what I desired, and how I would have expressed it versus what came in was radically different. And here’s the elements that were available to me that are available to you as well that we will play with in our manifestation for grownups program, five day event that really amplify manifestation in your life that you can start playing with right now. One is, I did not believe it was within my power to find that event. So as far away as you are, from what you most desire, as incapable as you feel, to bring what you want into your life, that makes manifestation that much easier. So what happens a lot of times is we ask for things that are just a little bit beyond our grasp, or things that we could need to make happen ourselves. But we’re hoping the universe makes it a little bit easier on us, right? What we really want to go for is the next level, the next level stuff, because what happens with next level stuff is our mind stops trying to be the one that figures it out and makes it happen. So establishing those criteria, which is what we’re going to do on day four, really, really helps amplify the manifestation energy. So one,
I did not believe I was going to be able to bring this event to my life because I had signed up for events A gotten canceled, I’m booked to speak, they had gotten canceled, I was like, I’ve done what I can do, there’s nothing left I can do. So there was real, there was a way to craft what you want. So that you’re really in a state of non attachment, that state of non attachment really, really helps. The second part was that I had totally complete faith that there were events out there that I could go to, but I just didn’t know them. And so I was wide open, I had normally where I would have gotten really granular with what exactly I wanted from an event. Meaning like if we were doing this four years ago, where there’s tons of events out and I was really specific, you know about which events I would want to go to and what I’d want to be learning in this case, and I made a joke about it. I said, you know, this is a wonderful environment for people who do want to put on events because literally you could pretty much put any event ticket in front of me and I buy it right now. That’s the state I was in. Well, that is a delicious state of complete openness. Now when you couple that with the trust that the Divine is going to take care of you and bring your your highest and best opportunity. That is what creates the most delicious and optimal environment for manifestation to happen. So that’s all the things we’re going to be doing during manifestation for grownups And what I want to assure you is this is a no nonsense approach to design and attract the life you’re meant to live, I promise. So if that sounds good to you go to patreon.com forward slash manifest, and sign up. And we will be opening up the community. As of when this drops, I believe the community will be open or will be opening in the next couple of days. So come on in, come play some games with us as we get all of our manifestation, our playful manifestation energy going, and I will look forward to seeing you inside. And hey, if you can use any piece of the information that you got right now and apply to something that you really, really, really want to attract in your life, you will have started that manifestation ball rolling this second. So don’t wait. Don’t wait for us to start. Join us. And also use what I’ve just shared with you here to start that beautiful energy moving towards you. Have a wonderful, wonderful day. I can’t wait to see you inside the event. Oh, one last thing. questions that came up the last time we ran this. The exercises will be dropped as pre recorded videos each day. So you’ll be able to do them at any time during the day. So it doesn’t matter what your work life or home life looks like. The videos are super short. And then the total exercise is 15 minutes. So you will get those early in the morning. Well, early in the morning for East Coast time. If you’re in some of the other time zones, you may get them later in the day. But here’s the good news, then you will get them at a time where it’s totally your flexibility meaning you can choose when to do them. So I want to make that clear to you. And also I will be available Live, which that is not something that you normally have access to an any regular week. But during this week, you’ll have access to me all week long be able to ask me any questions you have about manifestation if you so choose. Okay, so go to pattylennon.com/manifest. I will see you in there. Have a beautiful week and make space for manage. Hey, thanks for listening. If you know someone who needs to hear this message, please share this episode with them.
