Intuition: Navigating Life's Path

 

Michelle Henderson kick-started the conversation by delving into Marilyn's journey with intuition.

Transcript

Michelle Henderson :

Well, Marilyn, thank you so much for joining the conversation with me today. I am so excited to dive into where you are and how you have gotten here. My first question I want to ask you, because I know you are very in tuned, very intuitive. When did you know you had that intuitiveness? Were you younger or were you in tuned and you didn't know what to do with it or how did it all begin for you?


Marilyn Penny :

Well, and first of all, thanks Michelle for having me here today. So exciting. I'm excited to talk to you as well. I think for me, because I grew up and I know that you have a religious background too, and I grew up in a religious family, so there were certain, it was just the way we went through our lives and we were very tied into Catholicism and I grew up that way. So I think I did have intuition looking back. I think that there were things that I said, no, I think I'm interested in this, but I'm supposed to do this, so I'm going to do this. Just I think in our generation too, and I grew up in the seventies, eighties, and you went to school and you did your degree, and then you got met a nice partner, and you got married and you bought a house, you had a child.

I did all of this. I did all of the things in order when I was expected to, and then I started falling down the well because I was really not living my authentic life and I didn't know at the time. So that's when I completely kind of disconnected. I think you think you have to kind of disconnect before you can reconnect. So I went down a number of times and I realized after quite a long time that, oh, okay, I'm not doing what I'm supposed to be doing now. I have to start listening to myself. So that's sort of how my journey started. And a lot of people, I know I've heard you talk about your spiritual awakening, your spiritual journey, and some people say it's been like being hit by lightning or something significant happens in your life, an accident losing a loved one, something like that. For me, it was just much more subtle and just over time, just slowly developing. So that doesn't have to happen to you. It can be a very, just like a slow burn. It's sort of like I'm starting to question things. I'm starting to make changes in my life, and guess what? You're on a spiritual journey. So it can be as simple as that.


Michelle Henderson :

I absolutely love that because I think a lot of people will be able to resonate with your experience, and I think a lot of people will go, you know what? I don't know. Yeah, like you said, it could be smooth or it could be like they're being stubborn and spirit is knocking at their door, or their authentic self is knocking at their door and they're going to open it regardless if you want to or not. At that time.


Marilyn Penny :

Yes, you'll be reminded in sometimes subtle and sometimes not so subtle way that you are maybe not going in the right direction. So awareness was huge, and I had no awareness back then. So now I'm like, okay, I get it.


Michelle Henderson :

Yes. Oh, absolutely. Absolutely. So let's talk about what you do now. So I know that in you offer Soul Realignment, which I love that, and we'll talk about that relationship readings and also property energy clearings. And I know that you use the Akashic records and I am kind of in that journey of learning about the records, but can you explain how you use them to get the information?


Marilyn Penny :

Sure, yes. So I first started my journey as sort of a life coach because of all the work they had done, and I am a business person and I grew up in the hotel industry and in recruiting, so I was very practical. So when I got into my spiritual gifts, I started with life coaching, and then I discovered the Akashia records. And as I was getting into learning how to read them, I learned that I'm actually a reader. I'm actually a librarian and have been a record keeper for many lifetimes. So that was a little bit of a mind blow, right? So you're like, you're finding out, oh, okay, I actually have direct access to the records, and that's a unique thing. Not everybody has that. A lot of people read the records with the assistance of guides, and I don't need that because I'm a librarian.

I have been doing it for many, many lifetimes, and that's why it became so comfortable for me. And so like, oh, okay. It just fit really well. And I think that's part of when people are trying to find what they're passionate. It's about what you're passionate about, but also what comes natural. What feels good to you? What do you feel comfortable doing This I feel very comfortable doing. So I'm able to actually go into the records and find out what your stories were, what things in the past are impeding your experience now. So what have you gone through in past lives that has is now affecting you? And things will repeat for you until you learn about those things and you clear them, right? You'll have the same relationships over and over and over in the same jobs or the same, and you'll say, well, how come every time I make a change it, I fall back into the same pattern? It's like, that's because it's the negative pattern that we have to clear for you. So I can go in and actually discover that, help you understand it, and then we let go of it together. So it's a really cool process.


Michelle Henderson :

I love. Oh, that sounds wonderful. Now, just for the people that don't know what the records are, can you do a 1 0 1 explanation of what it is? Sure,


Marilyn Penny :

Yes, absolutely. So the records exist in the fifth dimension. So if you think of our bodies as the third, our third dimension, our minds as the fourth dimension, this is sort of that layer above that that's sort of in between our minds and say heaven or the great beyond the spirit world. So the records are the internet for the soul. So it's going to give you all the information of everything you've done in all of your past lifetimes. And some people say, we can look into the future as well with Akashic, I don't go there quite yet. I like to sort of, let's figure out what we've done and tripped up in the past and let's clear that so that then you can create your own future. I'm sort of much more in that camp than, okay, this is going to happen. I don't, yeah.

Yeah. So it's very interesting when I start to talk to people about what's, what's stuck there, what's really preventing you from moving forward? Because a lot of people just say, well, I guess that's, it is what it is. I'm not supposed to have a successful relationship. I'm not supposed to have any money. I'm not supposed to. And they just get stuck in that and I say, well, no, maybe you have a valve poverty that you took six lifetimes ago and you just haven't let that go. So let's just let that go. Let's move on. Yeah,


Michelle Henderson :

Absolutely. I need to be told, and they're probably going, I'm going to hold onto it anyway. So whenever you have a client and you go into the records, do you have to meditate first or are you able to intune get there and have a conversation? What we're having? What does the session look like


Marilyn Penny :

For you? Yeah, I'm pretty much, I just request access, so I get information like your birth date, your birth place, location, that your full name, that sort of information, just so I make sure I'm going to the right place. And then I use a pendulum. I ask questions, and then the information starts to come. Once I open the channel, information comes. So I'm not in a trance state. It's all very practical for me, which is good for me, kind of how I operate anyway. Oh, right,


Michelle Henderson :

Right. Oh, absolutely. Yeah. The trancing is a little bit different, and if people dunno what trance is, it's like you totally let spirit come in for channeling is what my understanding is. But the way that you do it, you're still aware. You're still able to get out of it in and out of it very quickly. So I absolutely love that. Now, do you have anybody that really has a difficult time letting go of a routine or programming or anything that they're just refusing to let go?


Marilyn Penny :

Sure, and that's why I tend to work with clients sort of on a long-term basis to say, okay, let's go at this from a few different angles, because quite often we don't always know the source of what is it that is causing it or where is this coming from? So we sort of take it from, okay, let's do a soul clearing, and then let's take a look at your relationship between say you and your significant other or you and a parent or you and a child that seems to be having a little bit of rough edges, and let's find out what kind of blocks are in there that are causing some problems so we can clear that clearing your property is something that is very simple and you don't actually have to do anything. It's all me and I go in and clear the history of your home and clear that energy, the negative feelings, the attachments, the protecting that space, and bringing joy and prosperity and fulfillment into your space to create that sanctuary that you want so that you can then move on and feel better about yourself.


Michelle Henderson :

So whenever you do, okay, so you're talking about sole clearing or are you talking about property clearing?


Marilyn Penny :

Well, so I work with people because people have a soul, but properties also have a soul. And the thing with your home or say, or even your office, it doesn't know how to, it can't consciously clear its own negative energies. So if say for me and going through depression and going through times of sorrow and grief in my home, and then I move past that myself because I'm working on myself, but those feelings are still in my home and they're in the walls, they're in the essence of the home. So you're in there and feeling like, geez, I don't feel great, but when I go out with my friends or I go to the office or I go to work, I feel okay, I come home and I feel down again. So why is that and why are things shifting in the night or buzzing and noises, and I'll say, that's things in your space. So for me, sometimes that's a first step into rediscovering your authentic self is let's get your environment straightened away so that your environment then feels really comfortable, and then you can say, okay, now I feel better in my space. Now I can start figuring out what other changes I want to make in my life


Michelle Henderson :

That is so powerful, because that's one thing that a lot of people don't realize that our energy does go into an environment, because I know as an energy worker, when I walk into a place where people pray, it's got a whole different energy than in a different room that they don't pray. So there is different energies, or when you go to an antique store, we won't talk about that so many energies. So I love that you do that, that you first take care of the property and your environment because we spend so much time in our home and plus working now from our home. Yeah. So that's a big impact. Now, I don't know if you can explain this, but how does the energy stay in our environment?


Marilyn Penny :

Well, it's just attaching to to your space. So it's actually staying in the walls, it's staying in the actual land, because I've worked on land that is initially assigned, it's energetically assigned. When the land is created, it's assigned. So you could be living in a house that's on land that was assigned as a battleground. So you could be having these quarrels and things with your family members, and you're like, why is this happening? Why are these things escalating? And then I find out, okay, so the land that your house was on was originally a battleground. We need to reassign it. We need to tell the land. It's okay, it's a home. Now you can calm down. And then I hear back, okay, we feel we're not fighting so much. We didn't realize that that was happening. I quite often, if I say that, by the way, your land was about, they're like, okay, I get it now. Or could


Michelle Henderson :

Have been,


Marilyn Penny :

Isn't that cool? Or it could have been a place of worship. Your land could be a place of worship, which is lovely, and that's like a sacred kind of place. However, it could also be very limited in terms of abundance, and there could be vows of poverty that are the people in that space we're having. So we need to shift that. We need to make sure that vibrationally, it's where you want to be, where it's going to connect you with your own inherent prosperity and abundance and joy that you now need to have in that space. So it's really cool. And if you want to sell your house, you want to attract buyers that are going to feel that amazing energy. So I'm working with realtors too, and houses that are just not selling, but they're beautiful places. No, it's energetic. You can clean your house and stage it beautifully, but if it's got negative energies like sadness or depression or grief or this sort of things swirling around in it, no one's going to want to take it. Right,


Michelle Henderson :

Absolutely. So if people don't have somebody like you that can do this, what other things can they do to help clear their home of this energy?


Marilyn Penny :

So people can do, a lot of people use sage and they use crystals and things like that, and I think those things work on sort of a temporary basis. So that's certainly something you can be doing to maintain that fresh energy. But if you want to have sort of a permanent C cleanse, that's when you go in the records, and I even talk to the house itself and say, listen, what do you need? Because sometimes even say when you're selling a house, that house, if you've lived in there for many years, that house really loves you and it wants to keep you as its owner. So it might say, I'm not going to let someone else buy the house. I want to have you in the house. So you have to actually have someone speak to the house and say, it's time to let go. It's time for new people to come. And we can always do, do little things. We can always taking care of our space, and we take care of ourselves. We need to take care of our homes too. Quite often we let things like that slide because it costs money or it's this, but it does really help to take care of your space as well.


Michelle Henderson :

And it makes perfect sense because I'll tell you, I had a reading from somebody who had read me before, and it took a total different route. She said, oh my gosh, your house is talking to me and I'm going, what?


Marilyn Penny :

Really? And


Michelle Henderson :

She, yes. And she goes, your house is talking to you. And she described, she goes, okay, so there's a room in the house that has kind of a bluish green wall, and she's describing it, and she said, there's new furniture in there now. And then she said, your house says that you need to get chandelier or something that sparkles. And I'm going, okay, well, when I got home, I realized what room she was talking about, and I'm going, oh, so that makes total sense that because we've been here 25, 26 years. So with our energy and with the family coming through here and having their energy, so I totally believe in it. So let me ask you a question. I have a lot of parents who, or my clients, and they have children who are seeing entities and they're not for sure if it's an attachment or the energy. So do you ever do clearings for people who have different energies besides what you're talking about, more of loved or maybe an attachment spirit? So do you do those kind of clearings as well?


Marilyn Penny :

Yes, absolutely. So as part of me finding out what's in the records for the property, there could be actual energy. So we're talking about sadness or grief or depression or anger, fear, those sorts of things. There can also be earthbound souls attached to your property, so they could be connected to the house in some way, people who had lived there and passed on either in the house or passed on unexpectedly and still feel like they still live in the house. So yes, I have many times worked with people whose children have seen entities and even children that won't sleep in their own rooms, and they sleep with their parents and they're like, please help us, or their sleep is disrupted. So yes, I have removed, and part of my gift is that I can actually help to transition these souls, which is so beautiful. So I'm able to say, okay, you need to transition to your next experience now and move away from this house because there are different types of attaching souls.

Sometimes it is a family member who's stayed connected, and sometimes it's someone connected to the house, and sometimes it's a soul that's been around a long time and they start to flicker lights and knock things off shelves and do those things that go bump in. And it's always the middle of the night. They don't do it during the day. Yes, it's always the middle of the night. So yes, so definitely I have done that and removed souls and have heard back that children are back in the rooms and sleeping again, and they may still experience things, and that's when your child has some gifts that they are interacting. So we just try to help them remove the fear from it and just say, it is a gift that your child has, but the child is not old enough to get the understanding yet. So we just have to sort of work with them and say, okay, maybe part of your gift is that you're going to help souls transition too. So we'll just find a way to talk to them and say, could you leave or come another time, or wait until I'm a bit older. We sort of work with it in different ways, but I find parents in this next generation or just so much more open and children are not being told to, we don't talk about that or shut that down. I think that's really important that we acknowledge it and don't make the child feel like they're crazy.


Michelle Henderson :

Right, absolutely, absolutely.


Marilyn Penny :

Might happened in our generation. So


Michelle Henderson :

Yeah, I totally agree. And don't you think that everything that you experienced, even though you weren't using your intuition or your gifts until what you said four years ago, don't you?


Marilyn Penny :

Probably 10. 10, yeah.


Michelle Henderson :

Oh, okay. Okay. So don't you think that you had to experience that so that you could help others?


Marilyn Penny :

Oh, absolutely. For sure. And I think that people really connect with my practicality. I wasn't born woo woo. I didn't come in that maybe I knew at a young age that I was going to get there eventually, but for me, I had to go through a whole lifetime of experiences first from a practical stage and then sort of turn on my spirituality. Would I have liked to have done it sooner? Of course, that would've been nice. I think it's always nice to have a mix. We have to live in the 3D world, so for us to be completely out there all the time and woo woo and spiritual, it's not practical for living 3D. So you want to have a nice mix of the two and to find people that are your tribe and the people that you connect to and that understand and want to explore without feeling like that's not appropriate or that we shouldn't talk about, that sort of thing. I think it's great. I think it's really, it's opened my eyes hugely considering I felt a bit sheltered growing up. It was like until I'm in my forties, then I realized, oh, I can step away from my religious box and I can now learn about all kinds of different things and talk to all sorts of different people. So that's great.


Michelle Henderson :

I love it because I think a lot of people, again, will be able to resonate with you and go, you know what? I can do the same thing. I can find my authentic self. And because it is so hard to trust and just let go because you are so vulnerable when you find that spirituality of should I move forward? Should I not? But you've just got to trust in the process,


Marilyn Penny :

And I think you start to attract the people to you when you're open. I think have met some terrific people over the course of going through this journey. And I think you just start to attract them, and maybe some people will fall away from your experience or have, I have lots of friends that have no idea, no really no interest in what I do from a spiritual perspective, and that's okay. So I go and have fun with them and do other things. I just sort of filtered that a little bit. I know who I can talk to about the stuff and who I can't, and that's okay too. And then more people are coming and I'm meeting more different people, which is wonderful.


Michelle Henderson :

Say live is so exciting and so adventurous. So is there anything that we did not talk about that you want to make sure that we get into this episode?


Marilyn Penny :

I think I just wanted to sort of share the concept of trying new things, of talking about making sure that you're finding some help if you're in a place of struggle. We're not here, we're not meant to struggle. We're really, a lot of people go through a lot of hard times, and I think when you're in that hard time, you're not sure how to get out of it, or you sort of get into a loop of, I'm in a bad place and I'm just going to be in a bad place forever. So I think it's really important to ask for help, to be vulnerable, to open yourself up and don't hide. If you think that you're weird or you are sick or you are different or whatever it is, reach out to people. I really don't think we're meant to do this alone. This journey has been, I've felt alone a lot of times. And then I realized that I'm only going to get better if I reach out to people and try new things and see, because literally everybody has their own little combination of how to get where you want to be in this life. Does that make sense?


Michelle Henderson :

It makes perfect sense. I love it. So who has inspired you in your life and why?


Marilyn Penny :

I have to say, I have to say my parents, even though they were classically religious people, but my mom, she served, she really came here to serve and she taught me how to be compassionate towards other people. She went through a lot of pain in her life, but she always found a silver lining. She could always laugh. She was just such a wonderful, loving soul. And my dad was more certainly had that loving, loving heart, but he was more powerful and he had that sort of strength and he would, but generous. So generous. Yeah. I mean, they were both wonderful people and they're both resting now, but now they understand what I do from spirit and they're helping me and supporting me from the other side, and I think that's so wonderful. But yeah, definitely. And I think our parents, sometimes parents get a bad rap, and now that I'm a parent myself, I can see it. And I just think we do the best we can with what we have. And I think our parents are, we chose our parents, we choose where we're coming in, who we're going to be with. And so if you sort of think about that and say, oh, okay, I'm with these people because I wanted to learn something, I wanted to learn from them and they wanted to learn from me. And that's where I find inspiration from pretty much everybody that I connect with. So


Michelle Henderson :

I love it. I love it. Alright. Are you ready for the last question?


Marilyn Penny :

Yes, I'm ready for the wheel fortune. Let's


Michelle Henderson :

Bring it on Wheel of Fortune. But unfortunately you don't win a prize.


Marilyn Penny :

Oh, okay. Well that's alright. This is a prize.


Michelle Henderson :

Well, there you go. There you go.


Marilyn Penny :

Just be in here. Yes.


Michelle Henderson :

Good. Thank you. Alright. Oh my goodness. Okay. That is so interesting. I think it was my last week guest that had to answer the same question. So if you were going to invent something, anything, this is a hard one, what would you invent and why?


Marilyn Penny :

What would I invent?

I don't know. I'd like to invent some kind of a magic. Those magic dice, those or some kind of thing that you can put on your head or something that tells you what your passion helps you figure out what your passion is. Even as a kid, as a little kid, you're five years old and you're just starting to go to school. So put this on and say, wow, you're really good at this. Or you could do these things and really help the child to understand, oh, okay, great, I'm actually really good at writing, or I'm going to be a painter, or I'm going to be just to help us with our passion and our focus in this life. If I knew that, knew what I know now, when I was a little kid, I mean, I would've had a much different experience. I think it was all worth it. It was all the way it was meant to be. But I just love when a child knows and understands their passion, how the trajectory of their life becomes so different. It's like, why didn't I know that back then? So yeah, I think that's what I would do.


Michelle Henderson :

So do you think our passion changes through life, so we might have to keep that invention in case it changes?


Marilyn Penny :

Yeah, I think so. But I think that inherently we have particular gifts, and that's something that I work on when I read the Akashic records. I'm able to tell you, this is your soul's personality. These are your gifts. These are communication. Just as a quick example, so you are a reader or a speaker or a writer. You need to communicate with people. So if you know early on, you're going to start moving yourself towards learning about that so that you can express your gifts and that unlocks your abundance. That's how I work with people and connect the dots for them. So if we can learn those bits, you're still going to make lots of mistakes and do lots of crazy stuff in your life, but at least you can kind of come back to that, oh yes, remember, I'm good at this, so I'm going to change things up a little bit. And you'll just shift and change. And maybe you'll like to speak when you're young, but then maybe you'll become a writer later. As long as you're always communicating, as long as you make that your focus. That's sort of where I'm going with that.


Michelle Henderson :

Oh, I love it. I love it. So Marilyn, where can they reach you?


Marilyn Penny :

You can find me@energyshiftproperties.com. So that's where can quickly book online. If you'd like to get a property clearing, lifeguide coaching.ca is sort of my main business, which I take clients for. Working with your own souls and your gifts and finding your authentic self. And I'm at Instagram at Lifeguide Coaching, and yeah, you can find me pretty much anywhere.


Michelle Henderson :

Alright, well before we go, I feel like think of one word that you would want to tell anybody inspirational before we say goodbye.


Marilyn Penny :

I'm going to say awareness. I'm going to say be aware. Just be aware and open and figure out what's going on.


Michelle Henderson :

Alright, so everybody this week work on being aware. Alright, if you enjoyed this podcast episode, please share it with somebody that will really need it and so that they can find their authentic self if they need a clearing in their house and their soul, Marilyn can do that. Alright everybody, I will see you next week.
