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 ;)

Notes in passing - Dammit Janet, this better be a pregnant pause

As the bulb fades here, a tiny spark winks on in another dimension, storing energy for the beam when the final cord dissolves. "Hello real world. Thanks for calling me home. I knew something was missing, just couldn't put my finger on it until I woke up and all the signs of death were gone." - This is a realization one might call 'Illumination.'



She had me approve a photo for her page last November. In January this year, we talked about her Mom (deceased). My hairdresser brother (her friendly contact and support for years) cut her hair in March. He said she looked much the same as always. No indication of a problem nor did she mention any sort of trouble or worries as she sometimes had in the past. We spoke via chat on March 20th.

May 6. Out-of-sorts. What? A kind of panic. Janet. I started checking. No connect (translation: "like" or suggestion on my page) since our last contact in March. Her birthday was coming up. I sent a message and checked her page.

  • There it was in the feed: April 18.  - 'Ovarian Cancer sucks.' - ...

FB acquaintance notes she is being cared for but there is no contact info. At this point there is concern. Cell phone doesn't take messages. If there is contact, she initiates.

  • May 25th. - 'RIP' is posted on her page via another out-of-town connection who then falls off the page.
Again, something is off. Telepathic connect with Janet who implies the friends on her page may not have all the details. Curious.

Now I start connecting dots. In talking with those who inquire of me, I discover none of her daily contacts or current, close, texting friends has had any indication or conversation about her illness since that April post, nor does it seem they had been informed of anything prior.

Long-term friends were kept out of the loop. This now sounds reminiscent of someone planning to take a trip and not coming back. Tying up the loose ends, she started early in the year.

Telepathic sending. Asking for help and trying to pick up information. Studio light at work turned itself off, once. Electronics are acting up, burned out bulbs at home. Not too excessive. A person started to materialize in front of me in the studio but I lost the image when I tried to focus and at the time I didn't connect the incident to Janet. Beginning in May, brake lights on the car began to act erratic when parked.

Surprising telepathic response when I saw the 'RIP' post. Janet told me she was with a guy who is "dead like me"... It was such an odd phrase for her to choose that I thought it might have been a joke.

My brother offered a piece of the equation I didn't know. Her apartment was part of a Trust. That Trust was funded by parents of a young man who had been bed-ridden and in a coma. It could have been that she had connected to him.

She then telepathed an image and said it was her new "boyfriend". He looked nothing like anyone I have known her to have an interest in. A similar image appeared in an advertisement within a few hours. In a dream I was seated beside her on the couch and she introduced me to the same person.

After a few days of thought contact, I realized that phrase she gave me didn't necessarily mean she was deceased. The image could also be a hospice caretaker.

I started thinking differently, realizing she could also be in an in-between state of neither here nor there. Drug induced, a hazy, coma-comfortable as part of the transitioning in a hospice care situation.

Elmer Green address a similar state of conscious awareness in his trilogy, Ozawkie Book of the Dead.

More recently, Russell Brinegar shares his dual state of being experience during his NDE in his book, Overlords of the Singularity.

My brother checked Janet's apartment. Furnished but no one there. I now had the address. Pieces were starting to gel. No effort to connect because, as she reminded me telepathically, she had numerous bouts of suicidal depression. "Remember how many times I wanted to check out?" she asked. I remember.

When she was down, there was no up. She had been down. In the past, ever resourceful and hopeful, she would rally and continue on.

Regarding an afterlife, she knew about my nightlights and witnessed our interaction. On my behalf she even sent a book off to Oprah, a thing I never considered. Embarrassed and flattered, I viewed it as a huge compliment.

She had experienced ghosts before and, in May, had even talked about an increase in electrical noises. She told me the sound of electricity was more pronounced, so loud at one point it startled her. I told her to pay attention and open her mind. Someone or some thing was trying to get her attention. It seemed to be a message intended for her to interpret. I did not pry.

  • June 7 - She is adamant in telling me not to track her down as I keep on trying and also try to block that message. What if she just needs to know we care? (She says she knows.) 

She indicates things are fine and her caregivers kind. Guides or corporeal? At this point it became difficult to tell what state she was in. I attribute that to a peaceful in-between or very effective drugs. It's easy to get trapped in a coma. And in all honesty, she would have been extremely appreciative of the drugs.

[Aside: When my Mother went in for surgery, she had no interest in waking up because they kept calling her the wrong name. Someone finally said the right name on the second chart and she responded. Until then, she had no clue who they were talking to.]

My Guides now offer a bit of insight: She kept it private for a reason. A final diagnosis had been given. There was no incentive to recover. Being found would have caused confusion, emotional turmoil, discomfort and, no doubt, regret. Potential delay and complication. This was the Universe offering a smooth ride out.

Be that as it may, I am limited in information gathering due to my status as a non-family member. I concede, less than willingly, that I need to honor her wishes.

I do have experience with departures. One Grandmother gave me prior notice of her pending departure via a dream. That heads-up allowed for arrangements to return home in time for her services. The other connected after death to express her wishes concerning song selections for her memorial service and then completely dissolved the grief pangs from my body, infusing a soothing calm sensation that remained for several days.

One very unique reading involved the deceased saying he remained an Atheist. I posted that experience on Talking to Nightlights and will share an update here in a subsequent post. Our reality is incredibly, beyond comprehension vast.

In fantastic bits and novel pieces we are presented opportunities for greater awareness and conscious engagement. With my friend, there are continuing quirks. No obit or death notice. I am honoring the telepathic prods not to track her down. I got as far as the exit from the facility. She was not listed as deceased.

  • June 10 - Curtain still down. Belongings still present in the apartment. Dumpster on site. No answer at the door. I heard her voice as we drove away. She said, "You came? Thank you."
I had been asking for any helpful clues she could provide. No parting word or note, with the exception of our last chat on Facebook. Unless. 
Notify Kin ... Synchronicity?

We stopped at the gas station down the street. My husband bought a couple of lottery crossword puzzles.

Janet loved word games, lyrics, hidden meanings in songs. Dreamed at one point of being a Disc Jockey.

She had a great mind and fondness for eclectic music and musicians. She did a few radio stints in various formats. 

That's where we first met and continued to work together for several years. We succeeded with at least one PSI connection and she visited my dreams as well.


Neither puzzle was a winner but the words stood out.

Winning words 'Heart' and 'Vocal'  ... and on the card that said "Vocal' - two completed words: 'notify' and 'kin' ... And then, when we left, the car 'engine' light came on.


Trust this: Whatever state Janet is in, she hasn't lost her sense of humor and she is connecting.    


  • June 12 - As I am writing this post - the wireless mouse disengages. Doesn't say the battery is expired but it won't work. Install new battery, reconnect mouse to computer. Joke. Electrical anomaly of Spirit connection. Presence noted. She assures me she can be of assistance in her new state. Apparently, she has graduated. Continuing the journey -- I am still learning.

Until I woke up, I thought my life was the living reality. Awakening reveals "life" as dreamed. In the manifest dreaming time-recall, guides will assist in accessing cloaked and fragmented memories carried forward of well-intended arrivals and departures.

We can remember past lives and contracts completed. Coming and going starts to look familiar. We have done this before. The certain thing in the going involves many happy returns.

She has others who gave her a fine thread to follow, hints and cues on the timing; a choice to live again, simply not in this form. In the echos now, greetings from afar. My dog, Max, reassured me (and my Mom) of his continued presence. I am hoping I have not mixed the metaphors and lost the vibe. In the dream life I continue our journey. Given what I have learned so far, this story is on 'pause' not 'end'. Janet knows I have a thing for light.    

Janet, Thank-you. In gifting me with your presence, you offered shared challenges, victories and times uncertain. No predicting of an outcome made it unforgettably real. A piece of my heart you hold safe in keeping. Hello to your Mom. Doing my homework now.

PS: "Janet from another Planet" makes more sense now! Singing along, one of your signature songs: Rocky Horror: Dammit, Janet

Animal Communicator Madeleine Walker, Following her Heart: Conscious Living Interview

"What is man without the beasts? If all the beasts were gone, man would die from a great loneliness of spirit. For whatever happens to the beasts, soon happens to man. All things are connected." - Chief Dan George


Madeleine Walker - Animal Communicator

Reconnecting with Madeleine to talk about her newest book, our interview is on Empower Radio:
Conscious Living with Wendy Garrett - Madeleine Walker


Ranging from exploring past and present life connections of people and their companion animals, in an An Exchange of Love, to sharing the beautiful gift of deeper inspiration in The Whale Whisperer, her insight and message continues to evolve and resonate.

An introduction to Madeleine and her work - via YouTube



Unity: The Power of the Animal Kingdom to Guide You Home, is designed to help engage that higher knowing and offers unique methods for self-healing and shifting realities to manifest loving re-connection to upgrade our knowing and engage higher consciousness in our daily interactions with our fellow Earth residents.

To that effect, she includes Elementals and others from the Non-Corporeal world who share with us a common chord of seeking healing for our wounded creation.

Guardians of Gaia: Earth Keeper Whales and Dragon Oracle Cards are beautifully designed and can be a helpful assist in drawing upon a complimentary energy to help clarify intention and thought.

I asked Madeleine to share with me her intention in creating these special cards. 

Her reply: "The precious energy blessings and frequencies of these cards, offer an opportunity for humankind to realign and to connect with the guardians to help heal our beloved Mother Earth and ourselves, so we can all be Earthkeepers!"

As you use and incorporate the cards into an ongoing practice, you can affect change for yourself and the planet. We talked about the many connections she has made through the course of her travels, the urgency of the messages, the sincerity in the engagement from the animals  and the challenging process in getting this newest book to the shelf.

Madeleine gave a few relevant oracle messages as we spoke. I was delighted to hear the connection with Dragon. I also told her about my own extraordinary (non-ordinary) experiences. We have more in common than we realize and in every meeting more dots connect.

More topics mentioned in this show: see prior post.


The back story to Gary Wimmer's NDE is fascinating. We recap some of it in the interview but this is a fuller version, in greater detail.



(YouTube Link)

Aftereffects of an NDE can include expanded awareness and increased psychic abilities. However, just prior to the NDE, Gary had experienced an extreme overwhelm of PSI abilities and says he was almost incapacitated by it. He couldn't figure out how to make it stop. After his NDE, he regained control and the overwhelm ceased.

Prophetic information Gary said he was given some 40 years ago during his NDE is just now coming to pass, including climate change and the impact on the US.

I asked about Kansas. He said we're in the clear. Trouble spots will be on the coastal areas. And we're seeing that now. This is a very brief mention. Gary details that information and so much more about his experience in his book, A Second in Eternity.

A life-long Psychic, after the NDE, he shifted his reading style to incorporate Lithomancy. That practice is one he credits to (now deceased) Psychic Alice Worrall. Gary says he begged Alice to continue to work with him after she transitioned and she agreed. They continue to connect.

Conscious Living/1 - The journey of awakening starts early

"Things aren't always as they seem..."  ~ Talking to Nightlights

"Mom, Heygo flew out the window." My unseen friend, Heygo had been with me for almost as long as I could talk. I was about five and would soon start school and the process of becoming a properly assimilated, westernized human citizen.

We were riding in the car, back when kids could ride in the front passenger seat and seat belts were not yet standard. Heygo flew and I was matter-of-fact rather than surprised or sad. She noted in my tone a sense of acceptance. That was the last time I had anything to say about Heygo.

I may have mentioned Heygo, my "imaginary" friend, before but there are other details I have omitted and it might be helpful to fill in a few blanks as I better understand the circumstances now and for others who had childhood companions that didn't fit the norm and were therefore considered  "imaginary".

Fortunately for me, my Mother treated my friendship as a normal part of our daily routine and didn't discourage me from sharing the experience if and when I chose to talk about it. She could not see Heygo. I'm not sure if that made a difference to me; I could see Heygo and that was fine.

Time has passed, details about Heygo and what he looked like are missing. What remains is the knowing that his presence was necessary as a transitional assist to help ground me in my new assignment.

While still very young, I experienced a difficult time and some significant trauma with the birth of my younger brother. A lively two year old when he was born, Mom had been required to be hospitalized for a short term as was common. Then there were other complications with him that necessitated finding someone to care for me. I had initially been dropped off for a brief stay with my Father's Mother. When my brother required life-saving emergency hospital care, that stay was extended.

From the moment of my Mother's return with my brother, she was greeted by a child who had changed dramatically in behavior. Perplexed and frustrated, it made no sense to her, my reaction. I had been speaking before she left and exercising my language skills, bubbly and excited.

When she arrived to take me home, I simply parroted her words and offered nothing further. I had adopted a new pattern. If she said something like, "I am so glad to see you, I missed you," I would repeat whatever she said in the same inflection right back to her.

What had happened? Why was I being so petulant and obstinate? Jealous of the new baby? It was a mystery.

To her maybe but not to me. I wasn't there. Part of me had simply checked out.

Having been left with my Father's Mother, the trauma wasn't a thing I would mention or even understand until much later when I was an adult. I didn't block it. I just didn't know what it was. My memories of that time and the events were and are very clear.

Grandmother rented out the basement and part of the upper floor of her large, two story, turn-of-the-century house. The shared second floor included a private studio apartment for a woman who lived alone and from my later memories occasionally spoke to us if we saw her in passing but kept mostly out of sight when my family visited.

Having been through a lot of forgiving and releasing in regard to these events, it was a complete and total surprise while reviewing my notes, the anger I still carried and had not connected to the one person at that time who could hear me screaming at my Grandmother to "Stop," ... and yet, chose not to act.

Nightlight enigma. 10 yr. anniv. - Yard light cameo.
Remained on for several days. Switch stayed off.
No malfunction.
  Unseen can engage when the interest or the need is present. 

Even my very young mind knew my Grandmother was doing something wrong.

I pleaded with her to stop. Nothing worked. Screams and tears were ignored. Bath time was unavoidable and a nightmare.

That another person could permit the scene to continue was even more baffling and dis-empowering. The second floor tenant's living space was right next to the bathroom.

Hindsight: Displaced anger and a judgment
that needed resolved. There was no indication
my Grandmother's tenant had any idea about the inappropriate actions of my Grandmother
nor did I attempt or know to give her a sign I needed help.

My assumption was full of expectation that she knew more than would have been possible without putting her at odds with her landlord.

I was two years old. At that time I saw my options as limited. My Mother and Father were unavailable. I had been deposited with my Grandmother, a person I quickly learned to protect myself from. Children are much more perceptive in their early lives than they are given credit.


Given that there appeared to be no one to rescue me from the unpleasant circumstances, I chose to manage the situation in my own way. Claiming a different sort of protective power, I opted to disassociate and step aside. Parroting was me, exercising my armor. Wendy went somewhere else.

Heygo stepped in ... to coax Wendy back.
