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 ;)

10/15/2016 - The Haunting of Asylum 49 - Richard Estep/Cami Anderson

"We dance round in a ring and suppose,
But the Secret sits in the middle and knows." - Robert Frost

This is the latest show from Wendy's Coffeehouse on KCMO Talk Radio (Podcast link)
Backstory blog post on the show - indeed, the podcast upload was delayed and that is unusual. The audio quality was poor but it did skim and with all of the technical issues that had been questionable.

  • Perfect for this show's theme of hospital hauntings. Nursing student in AZ says she snapped a pic to show her supervisor her finished work and discovered the outline of a boy appeared in the image. Fox10  Real and/or unreal, the sighting is coincidentally timely.

Wendy's Coffeehouse Podcast/Asylum 49 - podcast link here is poor quality - a very good example of ghosts in the machine. 

Takes a unique personality to balance the quirky lifestyle of living with spirits and unexplained with a day job. Cami Anderson and her husband Kimm signed on for that challenge when they bought an old hospital in Utah with the intention of transforming it into a haunted house attraction.

The real deal.
Joined by Paranormal Investigator Richard Estep, who also manages that lifestyle balancing act, the stories about the haunts behind the manufactured spooky of Asylum 49 are the real deal and some are the stuff of real nightmares.

In promoting the show, I made sure to reference room 666 (facebook pic on Cami's page) and I tossed that out as "coming up" while interviewing Richard and Cami. However, the mechanical hi-jinx indicated a redirect.
Sassy enough already. 

An interesting side note: Kansas City is home to the oldest Haunted House Attraction in the US. In operation for over 4 decades and considered the Granddaddy of haunts, also noted for some questionable paranormal elements but not to the extent of Asylum 49. Check last week's Podcast with Margie Kay and Amber

Edge of Hell: "sits at 666 feet above sea level,  oldest running commercial haunted house in the U.S. est. 1975, focused on phobias, home to the record-breaking reticulated python." FullMoonProd 

Note all the interesting connecting dots throughout this segment and post and then follow up with the rest of the story. Read The Haunting of Asylum 49

From the sound of it, book two should be out about this time next year. Richard is going back with the team for Round Two this Halloween night. Suspect the ghosts are ramping up.

Backstory for today's show -

First things first, Ghosts and non-corporeals really don't bother with whether you believe. When they show up, count on a short list of electrical issues and computer/tech quirks, malfunctions. Know there will be inadvertent emotional discombobulation and then allow for an added dose of inexplicable. Game ON!

(Full Moon) Today - the ghosts in the machine took center stage. Scenes of the flotsam from behind the mic:
  1. Producer Mark indicated a problem with the audio and was trying to sort that out to activate and engage the channels for sound elements. Audio fired and it was garbled. (First time I have heard that in digital mode.) Old school, when we worked with carts, that garbled, sped up sound would have indicated tape burn or meltdown in the cart machine.
  2. Notably, much of the KCMO daily programming show promos were flushed as was the log.
  3. Commercial break entertainment began with Coffeehouse Promos for the next paranormal show (Campfire with Jim Harold) repeating back-to-back, four times.
  4. Sidelined Bernard Beitman/Coincidence promo returned to the lineup. (He's the one who says there is no such thing as coincidence.) Nice touch. Here's that show: Connecting with Coincidence. 
  5. In perfect timing, at the end of the news segment, the audio element that garbled and choked at the intro voluntarily performed with no problem.
  6. Producer Mark was not amused.
  7. And then, the dead air alarm kicked in for another station at about 6:50 and could not be addressed until 7:00. 
Chalk it up to operator error and/or some fantastically intricate, mechanically relevant/irrelevant engineering anomaly or b: Go with the flow and note the details in how it plays out.

End of Act One. Entirely amused and entertained with that portion of the show, no doubt the unseen cameo cast took a bow somewhere in the wings.

Even if I am the only one who is aware of the full extent of the circus behind the scenes, I do find it incredibly fascinating - that connecting of the paranormal dots. Bravo!! Now, on to the next show!

I also address the tech issues and behind the scenes for this (Asylum 49) show in my Conscious Living Podcast this week, including my own experience having a ghost try to get my attention, indicated by a sense of choking during my sleep. I thought I must have forgotten how to breathe when I was sleeping. No, it doesn't make sense. Ghosts do that to you. -- Paranormal Stories with Wendy Garrett on Empower Radio

Talking to Nightlights ... and significant non-corporeal others

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.” - Roald Dahl

The nightlight enigma is difficult to explain because it is more than just a blinking light. In addition to that blinking activity, I sense the presence as a connection/communication with one and others who are not in physical form. (Talking to Nightlights)

They are not beings as we might classify it and yet they communicate and present intelligent and insightful information. They can (if they choose) interact and engage via telepathic form.

I had to learn to channel to amplify it. The connection can be subtle enough to remain unnoticed if one has other interests and/or is too invested in the physical world to notice such an anomaly or to develop the awareness of such a presence.

Who and what they are? I have been told to resist giving them a label until we better understand who we physical beings are (as a start). They are non-corporeal and the one other identifying preference they have given me is "transdimensional".

I listen and I pay attention to the information to the best of my ability and understand that we humans are very much a work in progress.

The nightlight energy continues 24/7 and it can make a cameo in other locations. As I mentioned in the post I shared on Facebook and Conscious Living (Empower Radio) and promised to share here, this is the yard light - doing exactly the same pattern of blinking activity it demonstrates in my nightlights.

Interesting note about this location, the light switch is actually turned off. There is no malfunction. The light is properly wired. As are all the other outlets where I have plugged in the nightlights at home and away.

The purpose of this interaction? It is a visual (and constant) reminder for me that we have so much more to learn about our environment, our surroundings, our reality.

Our challenge is to continue to explore the world we know beyond what we believe to be the fundamentals and basics and reconsider those as stepping stones rather than foundations.

We are challenged by those who have a unique, non-corporeal vantage point - to imagine better with more attention to detail and exit plans and to question our assumptions in every aspect.

We are not alone. When we demonstrate certain traits and interest, contact happens.

This interaction and engagement with the nightlight energy, in whatever form it chooses to present, is my homework and my learning curve. So many mysteries here to play with.

Ready for a reality shift? Ask for an awakening, then hold onto your towel and get set for wondrous new encounters. (Smile) A tip for travelers from Douglas Adams

Far more complex than the linear model some have presented to us as the norm, reality is an adventure. And no one can truly be prepared for some of the stuff coming our way from the future. However, I have been reassured that whether or not we are prepared, we are indeed ready. And so we grow.

Stay curious. And wonder.

Fall favorite - Dining with Ghosts of Weston MO - SOLD OUT

You may have heard the ads for Weston Missouri Tourism during the commercial breaks for Wendy's Coffeehouse. Quick update on the popular Dining with Ghosts event at Main Street Galleria. Two nights are now sold out and the third is nearly full. Apologies if you missed the dates! This is an annual event and 2017 will be fun too!   

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

Downtown ambiance - Weston, Missouri

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.

One location (not on the tour) reputed to have an extremely active ghost had been converted from storage (2014/15) to a residence. No other details have been made public. The startled resident shared his experience, investigating unexplained noises with his dog in tow.

The encounter vid is still available: "Weston Swinging Light Ghost - *language*


Main Street Galleria sweet shop is a popular draw with excellent pie and fudge as sample temptations. You can also order on their site.

Dining with Ghosts offers dinner and a walking tour of local haunts dishing up history and background regarding featured residences and sites. (Living and/or deceased.)

One couple got the fright of their life during a stay at a local Bed and Breakfast. 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. Vacating haste was evidenced in the up-heaved food trays and the entire room left in disarray. Note: a spirit rarely shows up on demand but that room remains available upon request.

2016 dates are selling out fast. Two shows are now Sold Out and the final night, October 29th, is filling up.

No costume required but a healthy appetite is welcome. Rain or shine. Walking shoes help.

Call for reservations. Tickets are $45 per person. 816-640-2825. 

Details also available at Weston Community Theatre.

During the day I don't believe in ghosts. At night, I'm a little more open minded. - Ghost Quotes - Source for this Ghost Quote -

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.
