125: Penney & Jenny Show — Discriminating Truth, Just-Rightness, and Making "Good Choices"

Penney and I are back in action, with the 9th (!) installment of our Penney & Jenny show. If you missed last week’s episode (#124) on liminal space and embracing the in-between, check it out here.

This is installment is all about discriminating truth, just rightness, and making good choices. How do you trust your truth and anxiety signals? How do you know when it's time to Pivot? What's the difference between authenticity, honesty, and humility versus hiding, avoidance, and apathy? 

As poet David Whyte says, some beautiful questions need to be lived. We explore how the body is the first level of knowing in the physical world, and how we can better trust and tune into our bodies to know if something is true or not.

Topics We Cover

  • [02:42] - Just rightness or discriminating truth or what Penney refers to as Truth with a capital T. The living breathing truth that we have in our body.

  • [03:12] - Truth with a capital T relates to universal principles and how energy and consciousness actually work. Truth with a small t is your interpretation of that.

  • [03:26] - We are trying to get to the Truth with a capital T in our daily decisions and how we are in the world.

  • [04:00] - Acting and speaking in truth is an alignment of the layers of yourself. Alignment allows energy to flow through.

  • [04:55] - Harmony and finding your home frequency. 

  • [05:40] - We are giving away a great list of 33 questions. These questions begin with how do you know... 

  • [06:06] - These are beautiful questions that have to be lived they are not quick questions.

  • [06:17] - How do I express my fullest truth? You can't answer questions like this right away. Our bodies are picking up thousands of data points all around us. Sometimes truth is about tuning in and trusting what your body has absorbed.

  • [07:24] - The body is the first level of knowing that we get in the physical world.

  • [08:22] - Being drawn into something can be an indicator of truth. It's all about energy releasing from the contracted states in the body and feeling safe and open. 

  • [10:07] - When something isn't safe we can feel a contraction or an anxiety signal. We repel or lean away from it. It feels like a wet blanket is put on us. The focus is in the adrenals.

  • [11:53] - Penney reads people's energy by what she feels in her body. People's eyes also tell her a lot. 

  • [13:06] - Prisoners that Jenny has worked with have found a quiet place within themselves.

  • [14:13] - Telling the difference between an intuitive hit versus projecting. It takes practice to tell the difference. Some people are charming, and you feel you can trust them. 

  • [16:09] - We learn how to discriminate between very subtle differences of being. This is what Jenny calls just rightness.

  • [16:36] - We learn through experiences, and the choices that aren't right leave us with a feeling that something is off.

  • [18:08] - Just because you're good at something, it doesn't necessarily mean you enjoy doing it.

  • [18:56] - Drop, delegate, and automate things that drain you.

  • [19:41] - We all have a choice of how we look at things. You can make something you don't enjoy more enjoyable by chunking it and making it interesting to you. 

  • [23:16] - Dreaming and misalignment can be quite freeing when you realize that you've identified the problem.

  • [25:30] - When you're thinking about what you want to do next ask how you want to feel.

  • [28:14] - Making a good choice allows us to be creative. 

  • [35:29] - Jenny has fell into her integrity by being innovative with the podcast. Look into the psychology that language fosters. 

  • [39:59] - If your heart isn't into something, no amount of outside activities will make it work.

  • [41:41] - We are picking up more energy information than ever before. 

  • [44:17] - Is there ever a time to override our intuitions? When working in a group put out your truth in a diplomatic and empathic way.

  • [48:16] - Imagine you're the main character in a movie and ask how and why the scene is happening.

  • [50:16] - With a good choice you can immediately feel relief. Pay attention to how you feel after a choice.

  • [52:39] - Authenticity and honest. Humility is about being honest in the moment. Being simple and real can regulate honesty.
