Conscious Living with Wendy Garrett on Empower Radio - 9pm CST, USA, Mon-Sat

Shows are daily at 9 pm central time

Conscious Living with Wendy Garrett is produced by Empower Radio and featured on empoweradio, iheart, itunes, stitcher and various independent youtube channels. Programs cover a wide range of Mind-Body-Spirit/Alternative Awareness/PSI topics, including: Consciousness, UFO, Metaphysics, Paranormal and Energy Medicine.

Ongoing personal experiences with extraordinary and unexplained seen/unseen phenomena underscore my belief in a world abundant with wonders we haven't yet begun to fathom.

Experiencers, via their unique encounters, give us glimpses and clues to what potentials creation has yet to reveal when we are willing to listen to the call of the muse and curious enough to table our fear and explore the unknown inner and outer limits of being.

And the answers are there, teasing us in quirks, quarks and fantastic anomalies.

My proof
- and that is the whole point of this reality thing being very personal and unique to the individual experiencer - the light beside me goes off for a moment and then comes on again as I am composing this introduction, underscoring the "quirk" factor and the representation of the ever-present, unseen support in this adventure.

Thank you for your interest and thank for listening. I hope you enjoy the shows! - wendy ... and the nightlights ;)

Reality doesn't play by our rules

Unseen others are in our midst with the ability to exert un/recognized influences on human behavior.

10 year anniversary of the Nightlight.
The light is on and the switch is off.
Stayed that way for about a week.
Energy has it's own source.
Ongoing extraordinary encounters and engagements with the paranormal, or simply that which defies a logical definition or explanation is my clue that there are huge areas of reality we have yet to map and the goal for us humans in navigating 3D terrain must be to persist in our exploring even though we may not have the brain capacity to view and catalog the larger picture outside and beyond 3D in a conventional manner.

Our view is that much more limited and biased when stuck to the belief that science provides ultimate "proof" in regard to knowing. No matter how precise the math, change underscores the foundation of every equation and science is a constant work in progress. Throw in a bucket of quantum anomalies and the process is derailed entirely. We call it: Evolution. And we plow forward.  

Unseen others are in our midst with the ability to exert un/recognized influences on human behavior.

Factoring that unseen presence into the equation, one begins to ask more questions in terms of what exists as a greater reality and how might it serve us to address and account for that aspect as a necessary and valuable component of a life experience.

Who are they? Why are they here? What do we learn? What more can we discover? What wonderful mystery are we meant to uncover/awaken to?

As with any unknown, I don't assume the unseen "they" represents a whole or that those with whom I have interacted are working toward the same end. I suspect appearance varies in the context to which each is capable of grasping the concept of  "other" and that aspect also shifts with evolution of consciousness. In regard to the reality of presence and ability to impact those of us in human form, I know they/it/other exists.

One very simple and profound interaction involved earrings. That said, my paranormal connection with the unseen energy of the nightlight continues 24/7. That energy is unique and familiar. I have also experienced earrings and jewelry being removed or loosened while working with ghosts in haunted places. This was different.

Just before drifting off to sleep I sensed the presence of two beings at my bedside. Something in their energy signature (and my concern in regard to their intentions) prompted me to surround myself in light and amplify my own frequency.

A telepathic conversation ensued. The tone conveyed humor and suggested my effort in trying to protect myself or to set up any sort of barrier would be pointless and futile. I interpreted that as a possible attempt to intimidate me and retained my light focus until I fell asleep.

When I awoke the next morning, I realized both earrings had been loosened to the point of coming off. Impressive, given my frustration at the tedious effort required to put those earrings on. The posts are extended and screw into position to remain secured in place. I find the process so laborious that I don't wear them very often.

My takeaway from the encounter is, rather than let me fall asleep to possibly forget or tell myself I imagined the interaction, "they" opted to demonstrate their ability to reinforce my awareness as to their presence. It is my belief these energies intend to help rather than harm and I have the option, given my knowing of this interactive engagement, to learn to expand the awareness involved in sensing them by identifying, honing and increasing my attention skills.

Unseen others are in our midst with the ability to exert un/recognized influences on human behavior. 

Experiences with the extraordinary serve to challenge us to expand our awareness and create new definitions for our knowing. It would seem, in this particular endeavor, our counterparts (those unseen others who have shown up to assist us in this phase of conscious evolution) are not of any nature we have the ability to identify by past association. This is co-creation in every sense.

In process now, we are learning and evolving our conscious awareness. Contact continues in various aspects and form while we piece together commonalities and navigable framework.

When one undergoes a profound shift in consciousness and comes to discover that we humans can be surrounded by cadres of non-corporeal others and remain totally clueless, the day to day focus on the mundane holds less appeal.
Unlimited consciousness frontier. Baby steps. I am learning.

"Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away." - Philip K. Dick

During the process of writing and working on this post I happened upon two books I had not seen before that add more texture and depth to this discussion. The authors have contributed a great deal of thought, research and content to help add insight for any who are on this journey of discovery.

My best non-corporeal metaphysical resource is still the unseen one who inspired my spiritual life shift and assisted in the writing of my own book: Talking to Nightlights. The Energy is with me always - and the nightlight is still on!

In the spirit of company - Weston Ghosts

Mainstreet Galleria in Weston, Missouri. Dining with Ghosts and Ghost walk 10/30 2015.

You don't have to believe in Ghosts. They believe in you

When I sat down at the table, one of the group immediately let me know I would be dining in the company of a few skeptics. That person then identified each, including herself and asked how I, as the designated intuitive presenter for the evening, planned to convince them.

I explained that my role wasn't about convincing anyone. Each must determine his own reality for himself. My role is to offer what I know as a truth or a reality for me.

That is how I work it and although I find it to be reliable for me, I cannot guarantee it will produce the same result for someone else.

Throughout the night, in the sharing of personal stories, even the skeptics related experiences that definitely fell into the category of paranormal. It helped me to understand the definition of skeptic in some instances by no means implies a lack of paranormal or unexplained encounters.

The term skeptic in this case allowed for reservation or withholding of judgement until some sort of inner criteria could be met to determine validity and/or at the very least that one might not be considered gullible. It was a fun evening.

Encounters shared varied in range from premonitions, objects being moved without any evidence of someone being present, hauntings, ghost encounters, being tripped by a ghost and seeing a full blown apparition of a recently deceased relative in such solid fashion that the image could be mistaken for a
real person.

Weston Cafe
Interestingly enough a couple of events happened during the evening. The commonality was that it occurred in smaller groups.

As one guided tour group exited the cafe, a couple noticed a shadow moving independently across a lighted back room. It appeared to be hovering in a purposeful manner in the Cafe in the same location known to have sightings.

The week before, two women told the tour guide to apologize to the lady volunteer who was working in the kitchen because they almost bumped into her. Understandably, they were a bit rattled when they were informed there was no one working in the kitchen.

As I was seated at the table afterward and talking with a small group, a stone pendant detached from a necklace and dropped onto the table. Completely perplexing to the entire group was the fact the chain remained intact. It looked like the perfect magic trick and yet, it wasn't a trick.

The wearer said that curious maneuver had happened once before when the conversation included her deceased son. I had indeed been speaking about him at that moment. To me, that is a direct validation of his continued presence. 

The story of Bobby
Andy caught pictures of orbs while on the walking tour and again in the dining room. The energy for this dining event presented itself as red, a good reflection of this week's guests.

Even though it was raining and dreary, of 46 people, 40 chose to participate in the outdoor walking excursion rather than sit it out and listen to the stories in the dry dining area.

Main Street, Weston, MO
An active locale, it seems that no matter how many times one hears the telling of the old stories there is something more to learn.

But the most fascinating part of the event is the continuation and development of new stories underscoring the validity and worth of the designation of most haunted town in western Missouri.

A haunting we will go ... Weston Ghosts

I'd like to see a ghost. It would confirm there's an afterlife. - Marlon Wayans

Living in a town full of ghosts may not suit everyone but a quick rundown of the local shops shows there are some who thrive in this atmosphere. Whether the locals have seen one or not, those who escort the tourists on the ghost tours say they have found it easier to linger in areas that are well lit. Enough said.

Ghosts have been encountered in numerous locations throughout the town and in the surrounding vicinity of Weston, Missouri. So not all of them are on the tour but one location that does feature an extremely active ghost at the present time is a building that was recently converted from storage to a residence.

You can see for yourself the response of the startled resident as he investigates unexplained noises with his dog in tow. He posted his encounter on Youtube: "Weston Swinging Light Ghost - *language*


Main Street Galleria is certainly among the thrivers of the local shops. No doubt the sweet shop is a popular draw with excellent pie and fudge as sample temptations.

This year's Dining with Ghosts is again combined with a walking tour of local haunts that offers insight and background on the featured residences and, in some cases, residents: both living and/or deceased.

One couple got the fright of their life during a stay at a local B&B. As the story goes, they had just settled in for the night with a tray full of snacks when the full blown embodiment of the deceased walked through the room.

They promptly called the host and departed. Their haste in vacating was evidenced in the up-heaved food trays and the entire room left in disarray. Note that a spirit rarely shows up on demand but that room remains available upon request.

You are invited to the final night of this year's tour. The festivities start at 7pm Friday, October 30th. No costume required but a healthy appetite is welcome.

Call for reservations. Tickets are $45 per person. 816-640-2825.  A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Weston Community Theatre.

The Deep End - Where Mediums learn to swim

Wendy's Coffeehouse Oracle: You are the light you seek. Hidden in plain view.

Forgive me if I have related this story before but it was a very critical time in my initial awakening to the non-physical others who were encouraging me to try and work with them to offer connection to the spirit plane.

Pieces of the Whole
So very foreign, this way of operating took me away from the world of logic and concrete form to a state of presence that required attunement to sensations, signs, imagery, smells and telepathic prods
while the living sat in judgement - curious, cautious, hopeful, and in some cases completely disbelieving that I could present anything of earthly value;
concerned that I might cause more hurt and harm to the bereaved in light of that situation.

It could be daunting. Along with my own uncertainty of my ability, I would learn to disregard self-conscious concern about appearances and the desire to have every answer validated in some public form. I simply had to try and trust that I would make no mistakes on that higher plane if I could give up my worry about judgement by the living and trust my unseen guides and our non-corporeal connection. I could be wrong and right.

Again she replied and her answer was still, "NO." Given what I was getting from the guides -- that response didn't make sense. I had asked her if the name "Penelope" had any meaning for her.

This was one of the first times I sat for an open gathering and allowed for an interchange that included questions from those who had lost loved ones. It wasn't anything I was prepared for and I had to trust there was a reason this name issue was so important.

There were a dozen or so of us seated in a circle at the gathering. My guides had assured me there would be challenging questions and I would have to listen and learn and allow the session to lead me. This person was very adamant in her denial. As perplexing as that was, I sensed it was me who had to jump the hurdle. I had to let go of my doubt in my ability and my fear of failing to simply allow I had the right connection. I decided to opt for a more tactful approach.

I didn't usually get names and this was very specific and (to me) an odd name. Her unwavering second negative response and knowing others in the circle were observing made me hesitate but I could not stop. I felt a bit uncertain and considered dropping the question but then I asked silently for an assist. What could I do?

The guides had told me that sometimes it would simply be best to allow the person to give you the answer that was most important at that time. It would be their own answer and it was unimportant as to whether I was right or wrong.

Then the prod came from the guides. Ask again. I heard the name very clearly in my head. While waiting for that moment, I was gently redirecting the flow of the conversation and sharing the energy sensations I had been receiving during that time. The flow was soothing and had a pink light around it. The energy was visual and looked like a cloud.

I worried that the group was judging me in a sense that my asking the same question yet again did not honor her position. It would appear that I was callous in my refusal to accept her answer. It would appear that I had a problem with being wrong. I couldn't worry about any of that.  

The unseen prod from my guides assured me I could handle being wrong. It wasn't my call. My job and my loyalty was, first and foremost, to listen to the guides and offer that information to the best of my ability, no matter what the external outcome or how it made me look.

When one works in the role of intermediary there are no losers or winners, no wrong and right, just messengers on the path. Light messengers. I swallowed my uncertainty and held strong to the vibration of the frequency. The name was "Penelope".

Out loud, for a third and final time, I would offer the person in front of me a chance to respond to the message. I apologized and then, in the most non-confrontational tone I could manage, I said, "I am told I need to ask again. Are you sure this name - "Penelope" - has absolutely no connection to you?"

Quite irritated by now with the whole thing, she looked me directly in the eye and responded with a tone of complete exasperation, "Penelope was her given name but WE never called her by that name. It was the name her family used."

Collective gasp in the room. That question wasn't about me being right or wrong. That question was the spirit of her deceased companion trying to get a message to her to let her guard down and open her heart. It was the one true sign of presence that I was not guessing or offering conjecture.

There is no one in my life, nor had I ever met a person named Penelope. I too was amazed. I could not have known it was the person who had recently died.

Her loved one was trying to offer a sign, there is no death. More information was given. If I had been less trusting of my guides and more concerned about the appearance of being right, I would have missed the opportunity to help her make a connection. I would have failed those in the non-physical realm. That was a breakthrough moment for me. I still don't know where my "answers" come from. It varies. I just trust they are there when they are needed. 

What I remember after that is an amazing charge of positive energy filling me and that entire space. Her energy softened too. I saw the cloud of pink enlarge and fill the room. This channeling, intuitive ability thing would not be anything I could explain. Clearly, it would require me working without a net and trusting my guides -- no matter the outer appearance. I would have to rely solely on their direction.

One cannot work with spirit if one is not willing to let go of external judgement and crowd approval. That is the first test. It was an extraordinary night.

My non-corporeal friends don't wear bodies yet they are more than fluent in the language and idiosyncrasies of those who do and, when allowed, can offer comfort and reassurance to those in doubt and grief, wondering whether their loved one found their way home to the light on the flip side.
Very few get lost.

One day this won't be so unorthodox, this way of knowing. Two things I have learned: We are never alone and we are one in the light.
