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 Check - "We ARE here." repost .. and a reminder

When contact occurs, most often the event is one on one. Given their ability to connect at will, it can be assumed that when they are ready to address a wider audience they will. Until then, validation and authentication are a challenge for the experiencer.

I have had a few contact experiences, including one earlier this year. I need to enhance the photo but the tiny white spec is what we saw. It looked like a star. Did it happen? Yes. Did anyone else see it? Not that I am aware. And so it goes.    (Correction: Andy, my husband pointed it out. So that makes two. We both saw it.)
“Well, I hate to admit it, but it is possible that there is (one) such a thing as telepathy and (two) that the CETI project's idea that we might communicate with extraterrestrial beings via telepathy is possibly a reasonable idea--if telepathy exists and if ETIs exist. Otherwise we are trying to communicate with someone who doesn't exist with a system which doesn't work.”
Philip K. Dick, The Dark-Haired Girl

I hear "them". It's a beautiful spring afternoon, about 2 or 3pm. They tell me they are directly above the house and I can come outside and see them. This is how it goes with that telepathic thing. Some messages are crystal clear. Others require a bit of sleuthing.

Being in a curious disposition and wondering what I might see above my house, I give in and opt to leave the housework and writing and enjoy some sun. Our weather has been a quirky mix of cold, cool and almost warm. Today feels more like one would expect for an early Spring day.

Ready to begin the exercise, I park myself compliantly in a lawn chair on the patio and stare at the blue sky above me. Wisps of clouds drift overhead. I scan the space in all directions but nothing seems unusual enough to catch my eye. Two butterflies, beautiful, bright yellow, flutter around, above and across the rooftop. Darting in uneven circles, they mirror one another.

I telepathically broadcast my thoughts to "them"...  "Are you bugs? That's what you are because that is all I see out here. I see bugs who look like butterflies sailing in the air above me."

Agreeably, they answer, "Yes, we are bugs."

Okay, right. I was half joking and I don't quite buy my own comment so I keep looking.

Eventually, a plane flies above me, to the east. Interesting because it parallels the exact east-to-west direction I am stationed in my chair. Within a few more minutes, another plane traces that same path but from the opposite direction, headed west.

So I say to "them", "Okay, I get it: planes. You can make yourself appear to be planes. That's all I see above me now, planes."

Again "they" answer in that same agreeable fashion, "Yes, we are planes."

Right. Jokers. I mull it over. I was called outside to see bugs/butterflies and planes because that's all I have seen. "They" can be anything and I wouldn't know the difference. Is that what this is about? Maybe it is. I give up. It was interesting. It's always something new to learn in this little adventure. I go back inside and continue about my day. And there it ends.

No, it doesn't.

Later in the day, Andy is home and he calls out to me to meet him at the front door. He let the dogs outside and we haven't spoken more than a few words as he has just come home. He motions to me to stand where he has been standing, just outside the house at the front door. Then he tells me to look directly above us in the sky overhead.

Surprised at this interesting note of direction from him, I look up to see clear, blue sky. It's just before 8pm central time and the late day sun is still bright.

Alone in the space he has mapped out for me, I see it. Inquisitively, he prompts me, "Do you see?" Excitement sparkles in his eyes.

Wow. This is a complete surprise. Staring up at the sky, I offer my astonished reply. "I see a star," I say, as I look at him in stunned amazement. What has just happened?

"Good," he replies. "Sometimes I point stuff out and no one sees it."

I quickly run to the chair on the patio and look up from that vantage point. Sure enough, directly above me beams that fabulous, only star.

We both know it isn't a star. Wrong time of day and wrong position in the sky. (I checked again after dark to affirm there was nothing in that space.) Keeping tabs on that bright spec for about 20 minutes is easy. It doesn't move.

We rush around in a giddy frenzy, trying to get a picture and knowing we don't posses a camera capable of capturing an acceptable image to represent it. Frustration aside, we take pictures anyway and just let that be our proof. That's when I share with him my experience with "them" from earlier in the day. Curious, the timing.

The whole thing is amusing. This isn't our first encounter. Others have been just as perplexing and unpredictably synchronistic. I think we humans must be some sort of project for them.

Might it be that our growth and learning is key to a grand plan and they too are part of this equation? "They" - in my experience - are patient and persistent.

Today I learned I could believe anything I wanted of them and it would be true. Or, if I let the events play out, the rest of the story would eventually be filled in.

Then again, the rest of the story is still playing out - for me. On some plane everything is connected: Butterflies, Planes and Stars. I am the observer, the participant and the creator.

Or is this scenario a representation of our evolution? If we are butterflies and they are stars can we find a plane of connection that provides a middle ground? I have to keep working with this puzzle.

I do know the task before us is grand. They keep showing up to remind me to connect my dots as best I can. Beyond those dots is an even greater equation where nothing is what it seems.

We tend to think what we see is as it is represented. And yet, when I put the pieces of this puzzle together I remember: What we saw wasn't a star. Where does that leave the planes and the butterflies? And where does that leave me?

I already know. But I keep playing anyway .. at my role of seeking the answer.

Star ...or not.  The bright spot you can hardly see. (Center/1 inch down)
Welcome to my reality. There is so much here to explore and learn that one cannot possibly consolidate everything into one lifetime. So we come back - not because we have to. For some and many, we return because this adventure is worth doing and worth being present for.

Life is simply amazing in whatever form it happens. And our sphere of engagement is an incredible place to learn, love and play. Once you find your magic, endless doors open from there. What does it take to find that magic? Try curiosity and wonder.

Curious, I wonder about a star that isn't a star. ...And a nightlight that isn't a nightlight. 

So - what to do about improving the opportunities for contact? The suggestion is to become more sensitive. Advice from Sixto Paz, the man who founded Grupo Rama.

UU - "But, in RAMA, one can prepare oneself to have contact?

PAZ: Naturally, one can prepare to have contacts, but it always depends more on them than it does on us. What one must do simply is to sensitize oneself. One must learn to relax, to try to control one's mind with meditation.

What happened is this - five thousand years ago when ET's had tight contact with various colonies in India, these were the same exercises that they taught them - meditation, introspection - to fortify their will.

What they taught was to fortify their will so they couldn't be manipulated, not by anyone or anything ...not by ET's nor by their own consciousness."

Sixto Paz says he was 18 when he had his first physical contact with aliens. October 1974, in Chilca, a desert area 63 km south of Lima, Peru   Source.

2016, the first wave ... reality incoming

In those days spirits were brave, the stakes were high, men were real men, women were real women and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri. - Douglas Adams

It makes it very hard to reconcile, this nightlight experience, and the mundane of the day to day reality. I see the blink and flicker, the on and off again tease of presence. What is it that we humans are supposed to get this time around? How is this magical element a factor in the greater equation?

I know what I have been told and the purpose for sharing some of our interaction as presented from that other perspective (yes, that would be the nightlight energy) but really, Why am I experiencing it?

I don’t mean to say that I wish it to go away or I am inconvenienced in any sense but this is simply too amazing in my view for me to try to tag it with what can only amount to a woefully incomplete and enormously inadequate description. I just wish it were easier to explain – and – it isn’t.

Now into my 6th year of Conscious Living on Empower Radio. It's a perfect time to connect some of the dots. Experiencers - and that seems to fit my situation - are finally getting a chance to network and compare notes. What a fantastic reality this is becoming. Here is the first show of 2016, talking about the paranormal element associated with the ET/Contact experience and my nightlights singing along with the song or flashing, as it were. My relationship with this quirky enigma has now entered year 19.  

From the journal -- [Again tonight, I am painting in the other house. I plug the nightlight in amongst the Christmas decorations. Andy had it out to test the outlets. It goes dark to see if I notice. I do. It comes on again. I love this game. Hide and seek and nothing is really hidden. It glows. I see it has gone off again and walk toward it and, quickly, I am reminded how subtle the connection and how easily distracted I can become. The light has come back on and it happened in a fraction of a second when I looked the other way. The game of keeping me interested continues.

This is one of those times when the light energy decides to amplify itself and playfully blink and flicker to the rhythm of a song on the radio. The song of choice is one that triggered a play response in 2005. I remember it exactly because I was leaving to try to help with animals after Hurricane Katrina. The song came on and the full size bedside lamp began to flash in sync with the tune. At the time I thought it was a message to me to remember my focus: "Don't you forget about me _ Simple Minds". Indeed, I stumbled a bit but found it again. 

Now I view it, the song title and name of the group as a sign the one who is connecting with me on this journey has a sense of humor. I laugh. Same song. New day. Life on planet Earth.    

This companionship is so much more fascinating to me than anything else I have ever experienced and it is such a simple thing. I enjoy it, the mystery and the unpredictability. To others it might be nothing more than a flashing light and/or, in some cases, a lot of flashing lights. However, that would be missing the point.

There is another being involved in this interchange. We connect in thought. That being also gifts me with an expression of presence via a light or a nightlight. Elegant simplicity this arrangement, in the flicker and flash of the light I experience the sensation of sublime contentment. Brimming with wonder, joy and awe, my heart smiles.]

December 31, 2015 --------

Dream I am excited to have spotted a golden eagle flying above the car in a slow circle, seeming to look for something. As I see it soar closer I realize the eagle has the features of a Native American man and the entire body is feathered except for the face.

The eagle being looks like one of the flying monkeys from the Wizard of Oz. The body form is human, covered in feathers with wings attached at the shoulders on the back. And yet, those details aren't noticeable upon first glance. One simply sees what he expects to see – a bird flying.

Two or three others now join the first. They fly above, silently scouring the scene below. Blending in and remaining alert.
Hawk eyed ....
I ask what they are and why they are here. The answer I hear: "Scouts … looking for the awakened. This is the time of the awakening and they are seeing who is paying attention. The connect will come later this year 2016 - but only for those who are welcoming the insight and learning to make the inner world a reality.

Insight and telepathy are crucial elements. Paying attention to details and following hunches are a beginning. Simply go and allow the path to be revealed. Aloha!"

Hmm, unidentified flying winged humans. Change is underway. Such an amazing time to be present as consciousness awakens. We are challenged in whatever way appeals, to expand our awareness and work beyond any and all perceived limitations. Baby steps. And so it goes.

Christmas Dear -- Magic in the Moment

Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known. ~ Carl Sagan

The years continue to bring more magic into view as my nightlights illuminate their reassuring presence with each and every flicker and blink.

I dance with wonder and cherish the opportunity to explore this incredible engagement with the unexplained. There are more questions than answers and that great knowing inspires my desire to encourage each and every seeker to -- open your mind to wonder.

Global events are challenging us to expand and evolve our consciousness. The unseen is an amazing playground. Those in non-form are attuned to us as we are called to develop our awareness of their presence.

Thank you to all who have connected and shared your "unexplained" experiences over the past several years. Incredible shifts in awareness are underway that defy conventional world view limitations.

This stuff has a metaphysical/mystical/non-physical/other dimensional origin. Even so, that source element is also very much a part of and able to influence our manifest/physical/3D reality. Challenging for those of us who might wish to define it in linear terms.

Gradually, more and more experiencers of all things paranormal and anomalous are talking, reaching out and connecting.

Details in our encounters vary so much that it is difficult to assign a label or to ascribe one category for all -- these engagements are simply part of the process in our awakening to a greater awareness of what we call reality. Greater numbers are awakened to the presence and possibility of the phenomenal in the telling of our stories. The main conclusion at this point: we are not alone.

2016 will be another extraordinary year.

A completely charming Christmas Message. Mog finds himself caught up in a huge catastrophe ... but, as all Christmas stories have happy endings -- (indeed they should) -- he saves the day and shares holiday cheer.

In my world, I see this encounter as a subtle attempt by those in the unseen realm to orchestrate, via an unsuspecting and innocent protagonist, an event that offers an opportunity for each to discover a greater connection and appreciation for one another beyond that of a standard/traditional/routine life ritual.

In the fine print and behind the scenes, Angels are seeding gossamer threads; joining tapestries in elegant connectivity, sewing a kinder picture of our world than we have dared yet to imagine.

Those angels are out there now working miracles in our communities ... and they are also working miracles of the heart right here in this moment. Believe.

Magic is real.

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.
