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

When the Horses Whisper - Rosalyn Berne on Wendy's Coffeehouse

I call horses 'divine mirrors' - they reflect back the emotions you put in. If you put in love and respect and kindness and curiosity, the horse will return that. - *Allan Hamilton, M.D.

Wendy's Coffeehouse Podcast - Rosalyn Berne 8/20/16

My interview guest had an incredible life shift. What would you do if you fell off a horse and a door opened to a world you never even fathomed? That's what happened to *Rosalyn Berne.

On vacation in Costa Rica, she fell off a horse and when she got up, she realized she could hear what the horse was thinking. He was quite rattled that she had fallen off and worried because that had never happened to him before. And so it began, a new journey filled with amazing insights and  revelations.

Expanding her horizons now on so many fronts, Rosalyn continues to teach (Ph.D professor in the field of Science, Technology, and Society (STS) at the University of Virginia), meets new horses and works with their people and, as of midsummer 2016, she now has two horses of her own and a ranch to call home. Details of that story are in our interview.

The follow up to her first book, When the Horses Whisper is Waking to Beauty: Encounters with Remarkable Beings, continuing the story and examining earlier life experiences that might have played a part in facilitating her expanded awareness.

Candlelike Energy - Revisiting Carlos Castaneda

The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same. - The Wheel of Time - Fantasy realized, television debut

Empower Radio forwarded a recent question from a listener who found the Conscious Living show on iHeartRadio.
This is my post revised (from 2008) to elaborate on the Castaneda comparison I spoke about in the show.

My direct experience was the catalyst for a revisiting of the Castaneda material. What I had dismissed as fiction (The Teachings of Don Juan) shifted with an experience that brought that "reality" to life.

*I answer this in the following post.*

That moment when the book was fresh and new on the shelf... and the truly remarkable was a couple of years away in the unfolding: time shifts, telepathic prompts, psychic pets, and a huge ramp up in paranormal activity. 

Talking about it as a potential vs. actually seeing your book in the store? Big difference. Local book stored carried Talking to Nightlights in stock for 8 weeks. (Longer, but the 8 weeks was a positioned placement where the book faced out/high dollar real estate in the book world.)

Talking to Nightlights -
Channeling Energy and Awakening
for Spiritual Insight
Curious, I stopped in to see where it landed. What a wonderful surprise and a bit of coincidence that it sits next to Carlos Castaneda. I mention him in the book because he was an inspiring part of my process in working with the nightlight energy.

I wasn't much of a Castaneda fan until something unusual happened and I found myself opening a book (Magical Passes) to show a friend who liked his work. And there on the page was the very event I had just experienced, described in detail. Re: "light energy." Page 32, Talking to Nightlights

We are guided. And those who guide us (from my experience) have a wicked sense of humor. I read more about Castaneda and appreciated the fact that, even if some stories are too incredible to sound real, it doesn't keep them from happening.

*My view regarding the light energy referred to by the listener as the "gold candle shape energy" -
My view is that the energy is a being or the representation of a being/s we are simply not accustomed to engaging or interacting with in our routine experience of waking reality.* 

["Was it really true for them that the sky was the limit, don Juan?" I asked.

"This question could be answered only by each of us individually," he said, smiling expansively. "They gave us the tools. It is up to us individually to use them or refuse them. In essence, we are alone in front of infinity, and the issue of whether or not we are capable of reaching our limits has to be answered personally." - Magical Passes, Carlos Castaneda]

Also worth exploring -
A Separate Reality 
The Active Side of Infinity

Interpreting, understanding, entertaining, reconciling, integrating unknowns, expands believing to encompass a wider and far more representational view of "reality"...
Anything is possible when our "knowns", rather than given, are accepted as relative.

Extraordinary - Nightlights

The young one ran up to me, clearly bursting with enthusiasm and excitement, confronting me for an inquisitive grilling at the earliest opportunity. "I heard you have ghosts in your house. Can you show me one?"

Yes, there are ghosts among us. The Nightlights are another story.

I do experience ghosts but my Nightlight, as it seems to have been relayed to this young one, is not a ghost, even though some who have no other sense of knowing might label it as such.

I responded to her quizzing with a gentle assurance that there are ghosts among us and sometimes at my house. I told her I could help but she will need to learn to see them for herself.

Many have seen the Nightlight activity in my house and in my presence. I have also demonstrated it for public groups. The activity can sometimes create complications for electrical gadgets in close proximity, although that is not the case in my home.

Some have experienced their own lights responding when I am expected for a visit or they are thinking about connecting. One (deceased) friend used to call me when the paranormal events began to compound in his space because he interpreted that as a sign we needed to talk. His office lights would often become brighter when I entered the room.

His light body energy was brown and steadily dissolving. I could not tell him that or that he was dying as that was fully up to him but I was supposed to impress upon him a sense of urgency. I strongly encouraged him to reconnect to his joy and ask himself if he had anything he really wanted to do in life.

Assuring me his life had been full and there was no sense of lack or anything he could do differently at that point, he told me he was content. It made me sad but he had the upper hand and his spirit had a higher path calling. He exited shortly after, via a very fast acting cancer.

I have no long, drawn out, scientific explanation for what I experience. The fact is - no matter what definition is ascribed to my Nightlights and the experiences that accompany this encounter - we, as a species, don't have all the answers and "reality" is delightfully (far) beyond our capacity for explaining or defining in linear fashion. Even better, evolution is upgrading our collective conscious knowing to reveal our ongoing role in a creation process that is multidimensional.
The Extraordinary exists alongside us - knowing, gentle, tolerant, loving, amused, compassionate, resolute. Waiting, ever patiently, for us to WAKE UP and integrate our light being awareness. As such, we are - talking to Nightlights.

What I experience - still gives me such a rush when I greet the day and the light flickers or remains "off" to let me know the play continues. I have no words for the awe this experience inspires and it continues to deepen as the years fly by. We are now entering 18 years of non-stop Nightlight inter-activity.

Yes, the Extraordinary exists alongside us and the Extraordinary is patient but the best thing is the Extraordinary is also fully capable and often motivated to give us an encouraging prod. If/when we deem ourselves worthy the collaboration begins.

Worthy, meaning one is reverent and respectful, unlikely to run amok on a power kick or derail on a messianic tangent.

Given a few trial encounters, a test is passed and one begins the adventure of consciousness  enhancement and frequency altering. Reality shifts to open a wider frame of reference (and reverence for all life in and beyond corporeal form). One is granted multiple opportunities to undergo a plethora of Extraordinary encounters to enable and engage heightened sensory awareness.

Contrary to the linear view with an expectation of graduation to maximum super-awareness/illumined state there is no projected concrete outcome in this process, rather one awakens to the constant process of evolution in a multidimensional state where evolution is not confined to a time-based environment.

Harmony and Chaos coexist and all is right with being. The best example I can offer is as a star nursery - where being sparks into life. No words suffice - and yet, the result exists.

We are infinite in our creation ability as is the Extraordinary in the unseen realm with whom we share our existence in awareness and hypnotic slumber. What will open us to a wider realm of knowing? 

There is an event in our near future - foretold and carried forward in many ancient cultures. The emphasis is not doom and gloom, although it might be construed as a serious complication for the current global mindset geared toward propagation of an emphasis on material consumption without regard to long term planetary or species benefit.

Reemphasized and underscored in current Channeled messages and Contactee content - this event is a game-changer, like no event in our known Earth history, a necessary catalyst, speed bump, jump start, reboot, in our timeline - helping us to re-prioritize and reclaim our natural connections and intuitive abilities and better demonstrate appreciation for our unique position in the star nursery.

The illusion: to believe one is alone. 

Nothing could be further from the truth.

In such a method and manner we have progressed through the centuries to arrive at a time when LIGHT has determined to make a grand appearance to affirm our state of co-creation.

So here we are, talking to Nightlights.

The Extraordinary exists alongside us - knowing, gentle, tolerant, loving, compassionate, resolute - waiting - ever patiently, for us to WAKE UP and upgrade our awareness.

What a time this is: the Age of LIGHT becoming. 

Yes, there are ghosts among us. The Nightlights are another story.

Float Therapy - a refreshing "time out"

"Presumably there are energies, to which each human is sensitive, that we cannot yet detect by means of our instruments. Built into our brains and our bodies are very sensitive tuneable receivers for energies that we do not yet know about in our science but that each one of us can detect under the proper circumstances and the proper state of mind. We can tune our nervous systems and bodies to receive these energies. We can also tune our brains and bodies to transmit these energies." - John C. Lilly

Meditation has been hijacking the headlines as the top go-to for stress relief and I agree that meditation is helpful for unwinding the mind. However, in addition to quieting the mind, if there are pain issues such as muscle fatigue or sports injuries, you might consider another option: Float Therapy.

Isolation Therapy (REST, Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy) is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. With improved technology and upgraded equipment, the current providers are offering even more in terms of environmental aesthetics.

What a nice surprise to find a local venue! Here's my interview with Blake Swetnam of Floating KC.

First things first - if you are into this activity - you are called a Waver not a Floater. Smile. However, I broke that code in my first post just for grins. Yes, I am that easily entertained. As such, how fun to find this Float Intro on the Floating KC blog.

Entertaining for novices and experienced Wavers, this is an excellent (humorous) intro of what to expect from your first float.Tag along with Rhett and Link

 Video is their introduction -- review and backstory on the adventure is after the video.

Curious? Try it.

Then compare your notes with Rhett and Link. Here's their assessment and review of the actual experience.

They do address the potential fear of claustrophobia but that element is a non-issue
with Floating KC because the set up is a room rather than a tank (Zero Gravity Float Room).

Floating Therapy -- another perspective -- In her story: "... an analysis in 1997 of well over 1,000 descriptions of sensory deprivation indicated that more than 90% of subjects found it deeply relaxing..."
