HELLO PATTI! THANKS FOR TAKING TIME TO CHAT WITH US! BRIEFLY INTRODUCE YOURSELF, WHO IS PATTI NEGRI IN YOUR OWN WORDS?
I am an “LA Girl, psychic medium and “good” witch!” I use the word “good” over “white” for a multitude of reasons – beginning with my love of Wizard of Oz! Yes, indeed, I DO have the big pink Glinda dress of my own! (Though I am still working on traveling around town in a big bubble!) ;o)
YOU ARE EVERYTHING THAT AN INDIVIDUAL WOULD WANT TO BECOME. HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE SO SUCCESSFUL?
Ha! Well, thank you! I honestly don’t think of it that way! I just follow my heart with passion and commitment, and with that, people notice and doors open. Success in itself, is an after effect over a goal! I do love the opportunities my success has given me though – mostly, a bigger platform to inspire more people on how amazing we humans can be if we so choose!
HOW IS SUCCESS ASSOCIATED WITH MENTAL WELLBEING?
To me, success associates with mental well being in how we feel PERSONAL success and fulfilment over success in the public eye or world view. Just like with love, we have to start with ourselves and then move it out into the world!
ARE YOU EVER AFRAID OF COMMUNICATING WITH SPIRITS?
Of course I get a bit frightened or startled sometimes, but in the big picture, I am not afraid of communicating with spirits. Since I was a little girl, I innately knew that this world was OUR realm of existence – and that we are in charge here and the spirit world had to play by our rules. Most people don’t realize that, so they give their power away to fear or limiting belief systems and literally give away their power.
WHEN DID YOU FIRST REALIZE THAT THERE IS A GOOD “WITCH” HIDDEN WITHIN?
I think I always knew. I didn’t have a word for it until I was an adult and years of searching, studying religion, belief systems, cosmologies, etc… but it was always in the blood. Even as a little girl, I somehow knew that putting certain plant leaves from the backyard in my mom’s wallet would bring her more money. My connection to the elemental and spirit world has always been in me… I found that “witch” seems to fit who I naturally am!
WHAT, ACCORDING TO YOU, IS THE MANTRA OF SUCCESS?
Commit 110%. I also believe strongly in the “mind, body, spirit” formula that thousands of books are written about! We have to “believe” because we will never surpass our own belief system – basic psychology. That’s the MIND. We have to take “action”. Sitting on the couch pretty much wont get you anywhere. That’s the “body”. And the “Spirit” is the battery power or energy that makes it happen. That can be your belief system via prayer/faith, a spell working, affirmation, vision board or anything that puts it all into action. One out of three is wishful thinking. Two out of three is hit or miss at best. Three out of three is always a home run! (unless you are breaking the law of physics or something of course!) You can look back at your life and see the things you accomplished you had all three. The things that you perhaps haven’t accomplished yet, you are missing one or two of the components… tweak those and you will move toward success!
WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU?
Hmmm… Good question. I definitely want more and bigger opportunities to spread the message of personal empowerment. I would like more TV where I can add that component to the show. I am about ready to start on my next book. I have a new producer and platform for my Witching Hour podcast that I am excited about. I look forward to doing live events again when we get through the pandemic. I really do miss in person human contact! I like dancing between fate, destiny and free will! Seeing where the wind is blowing – then putting up my sails and directing it to where I want it to lead me!
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHARE WITH OUR READERS?
Yes, I want everyone to know that THEY have the power in their own life. If you see areas where you don’t – who or what have you given it away to? Figure it out, then, take it back! We can’t control everything that happens in life – but we CAN control how we react to it. And THAT changes everything in creating the life you want! Go for it! ;o)
