This episode is a continuation of the conversation from episode 242 on what to do when we’re feeling lost. When we feel like we don’t know what to do, or we’ve lost our purpose, it all comes from feeling like we’re not enough. In this episode, Patty leads the discussion on why we sometimes feel like we’re not enough, what it stems from, and how we can move past it.
This belief was taught to us from the time we were born by the people and experiences around us, whether they were aware of it or not. Every time we were told that our desire was unworthy, every time something goes wrong or gets taken away from us, in our minds it translates to “I’m not enough,” or “I’m not worthy.”
“Constantly looking for how things could go wrong pulls you away from possibility, hope, and potential.” -Patty Lennon
Here’s three things you can do to overcome this false belief:
- Re-engage what we know to be true.
- Notice how much you already know what to do.
- Let go of the worry.
This episode is a reminder of this doubt we all share, and that it’s possible to get over this, and get better. Remember that as you live, you’re living your purpose.
Learn how to stop second-guessing yourself and rediscover where you’re meant to be.
“If you knew you were enough, you’ve done enough, and had enough within you to accomplish every desire you had, what would change?” -Patty Lennon

Hey there, welcome to this episode of the space for magic podcast. I am your host, Patty Lennon. And today’s episode is a follow up from the episode we had two weeks ago, episode number 242, where we talked about what to do when you’re feeling lost. We received a number of responses to that particular episode, it really struck a chord. And I wanted to continue this conversation. Because I think it speaks to what a lot of people are experiencing right now. And certainly up until just recently, I was in it myself. And what that is this feeling that you are wandering without direction, that might be how you’re feeling it, it might be that the resources you need aren’t really showing up. It might feel like you don’t have a purpose, or you’ve lost your purpose. Or you feel like at one point you really were on track. And now you’re not on track. And the things you’re doing aren’t working even when they felt like inspired action. The underlying cause of the symptoms is the belief that you’re not enough. And you’re going to have to stick with me for a moment as I walk you through why that is or what I’m talking about. So we have all of us humanity experienced this period, during the pandemic where we went into isolation, and it caused our brains to really fire up that fear brain to really fire up now you might not have experienced it as fear. But I’m telling you, your brain in the back is like we better beyond watch to see what other shoe is gonna drop. Because a big shoe dropped, that we weren’t expecting whether you experienced it as a huge negative experience or not. Your brain experienced it as a huge disruption, something it did not think was possible suddenly became possible, which sends it into a tizzy. You may think you have gotten back to a certain level of stasis, or quote unquote, normal, your brain actually hasn’t your brain is on watch. It is watching on the horizon for what might go wrong. Right? If you are wondering, and anytime you think about doing something, you go through all the reasons why it might not work, all the reasons why it could go wrong. This is a symptom of that that experience your amygdala is in charge. Now, that experience of your amygdala being in charge, and constantly looking for how things could go wrong, pulls you away from possibility it pulls you away from Hope it pulls you away from potential. And these are all the energies that take you on your path that feels like you’re in the right place that feels like you’re on track. That didn’t start with the pandemic that started when you were born. When you were born onto this planet, you yo I was grew up Catholic and there was this concept called original sin. And a lot of people misunderstand original sin, the way it’s taught traditionally in the church is that you know, you come you’re born and from the moment you’re born, you sort of have this original sin that has to be washed away by a sacrament, by baptism. But really what Original Sin is, is it’s the belief you assume, when you come into this being this human being that tells you you’re separate from the Divine. And that separation, that that illusion of separation lead you to conclude that you are not worthy of the Divine acceptance that you’re not worthy of the divine love that you are not enough. And that is taught to you from the moment you can pick up experiences around you. The people that teach it to you don’t mean to teach it to you. It’s just handed down from one of us to the next to the next to the next Every time you have a desire, and you’re told that that desire isn’t acceptable, worthy, important in any way, shape or form, you’re also told you the very core of your being is not enough, right. That’s how that conclusion is made. And so you work hard to be acceptable to the people around you, you work hard to be who they want you to be. So you can feel enough. But the problem is, everything you’re doing to try and be acceptable to others is oftentimes ignoring who you truly are. And so then this gap starts to form between who you really are and who you’re trying to be. And that chasm in the middle is really that non enoughness experience. Now, we all grew up with that we’re all in the process of healing it ideally, if we’re doing work on ourselves, but then we meet the pandemic, and we go into isolation. And all of the sudden, even though our conscious mind understands we didn’t do something wrong to cause this, there is a piece of our brain that’s going wait, why is this happening? Why is this happening? I thought that if fill in the blank, whatever you thought, would get you what you want, if I meditated, if I followed my purpose, if I was a good person, if I if I if I, I would be safe. The reality is you were physically safe. But it didn’t, your brain didn’t actually know that for sure, during isolation. And so what happened then was, we started making choices to navigate that time in the quote, unquote, safest way we could. And safety meant something different to every person, and meant something different to every person, then we were in conflict, sometimes, with our community of origin. Different people were choosing to navigate the pandemic in isolation differently. And that caused conflict, right? And then inside that conflict was this question in our brains of Wait a second. One part of my community is doing this and other parts doing this way? How do I fit in? How do I do this? And so we’re, our brains are constantly reorganizing and renegotiating what made us acceptable. And all that did was amplify this old gunk, that we are not enough. And worse, that will never be enough. And we might think we’re not enough. Which translates into not having enough money, not enough love, not enough support, not enough of the material things, right. So if you’re seeing any a lack show up in your life, it’s a symptom of this core belief. On top of it, we are in the period of massive evolution, energetically in humanity and on the earth. And so as we’re going through this transformation, we are changing, the things that worked for us no longer work for us. So now we can’t even rely on what used to work for us. Because even though we found what worked for us, maybe through a spiritual channel or a personal development channel, Now, none of that is working. And that was one of the things I heard a lot from people who listened to the episode 242 about the metaphorical desert was this feeling of like, I think I’m doing the right things, I follow what I thought was inspired action, and then it doesn’t work out. Part of the reason is, sometimes we misunderstood what the inspired action was. And part of the time it was that the inspired action was taking us in the right direction, it was just going to take us on this very curvy road as we navigate this period of transformation. And what we really want are signs that were safe, meaning, okay, if I’m gonna have the courage to follow this inspired action, I want a material gift to show up instantly. I was one of those people I was like, my fists in the air yelling at God, you better send me a manifestation. So I’m no I’m doing this right. And it’s not that the manifestations aren’t coming. It’s not that the gifts aren’t coming. It’s just they’re not coming quickly. And that’s just the nature of the time we’re in. So without this proof that we’re doing it right, it becomes uncomfortable. And already our amygdala is scared and our fear brain is like give me back control, give me back control. And so we start going back to these old behaviors of doing what everyone else wants us to do what makes other people happy or what’s more socially acceptable, what looks like what everyone else is Doing or we give up, or we feel frustrated. And what I want you to know what the divine wants you to know is you’re absolutely enough. You’re not getting this wrong. What we need to engage right now is more patience, which is so unfun right on patients is so unfun and trust, that we really are headed in the right direction,
even if the proof isn’t showing up immediately. So how do we do that? Well, the first thing is, we start to really reengage, what we know to be true. I’ve talked about this here on the podcast plenty of times before one of the rules of the receiving method is do your 100%. So what I strongly recommend you start doing is go back, if you did this with me, and you had followed the receiving method, and you’ve lost track of it, reengage this, and if you’re new to this, I promise you, this will shift things, start to write down what you’re intending to do, over the next day over the next week, go work off of a task list. But before you engage it, once you’ve written it, really scan it and feel what feels like you’re 100%. And the way you know what your 100% is, is if it feels like flow, if it feels like flow, or the opposite is, if it feels like you’re pushing a boulder up the hill to get it done. Put it down, put it down, meaning don’t do it. This is going to take a tremendous amount of courage. But I promise you, this will start to shift things very quickly. The second thing is to notice how much you already know what to do, meaning what feels like, I really feel like this is where I’m supposed to be going. And you’re not doing it either because you believe it’s not going to work out. Or you’re scared to get your hopes up that it will work out. That was actually my big aha, as I went and did my like internal seeking was. So I’ve got this little whisper of I’m not enough, I had been doing some things over a very long period of time that I expect it were going to yield results, both material results and spiritual results and like emotional results and all the results. And they didn’t come to fruition. And so I got extremely disappointed. And I had to stop for a while. I had to stop for a very long while and I talked about that in the that episode 242. I had to stop for a while because I personally was having a very hard time believing I could survive more disappointment. And that’s okay. That’s okay. If that’s where you are is if I just can’t follow hope I can’t follow possibility I cannot follow potential right now. Because if it doesn’t work out, I’m just so tired of being disappointed. So okay, West, the Divine Mother wants you to rest. And I promise you she is taking over when you put something down, she is taking it over. But here’s the key. If you worry about it, once you’ve put it down, it’s like you’re taking it back. So every time you worry about you want to just then again say please Divine Mother, please divine please universe, please source whatever word you use. Please take this over, please solve this challenge. Please show me what to do. Now the final thing I want to tell you about is if you’re listening to this episode when it drops, I have because of the big reaction we got from that episode I just mentioned a few times. I’ve designed a new training now it is going to go live tomorrow I’m going to be doing it live tomorrow as of when this episode drops. So that is May 18. So you can find that at Pattylennon.com forward slash training. It is how to find and embrace your soul’s purpose. In that we’re going to talk about how to stop second guessing yourself how to start feeling that purpose again, even when your immediate reality isn’t changing instantly. And I’m going to also walk you through how I got back into the flow of my life. Because that’s really what being in your purpose is is you are always living your purpose. You came to embody a certain level of Energy to embody the light that is your life. You’re living your purpose right now, just by being alive by breathing. What most people mean when they say, I don’t know what my purpose is anymore is this feeling that I’m not using my life? Well, I’m not using my time and energy, well, I’m not happy, I’m not enjoying my life and not meaning like, I’m not getting everything I want, but just this qualitative sense that your life is good, right? That you are where you’re meant to be? Well, that is really just being in the flow, right? That’s following inspiration that’s following the divine guidance you receive. And it’s all about trust. So we will be doing all of that we’re talking all about that in the training, go to Pattylennon.com, forward slash training. And if you’re catching this late, and the replay still available, you’ll be able to sign up for that there. So that training will happen at 2pm. Eastern. I hope you join us. For now, what I want you to understand is that feeling of not enough, wherever it’s showing up, it is the original illusion, it is the illusion. So if you knew you were enough, if you knew you’ve done enough, if you knew you had within you enough to accomplish every desire you had, what would that change? That’s the Navigating question to check in with. And I certainly hope it gives you something helpful to shift some energy around inside of you. Do you have questions?
