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 ;)

We wear many hats - Perspective on Multidimensional Being.

During times of tremendous emotional and physical stress and upheaval, my spirit connection offers a calming influence.

I didn't fully comprehend it at the time, but I got a heads up on my father's death from my primary spirit guide in a session on the Wednesday before my dad died. I had been consciously working with Joseph and considered him to be an influential and grounding spirit guide since 1996.

He appeared to be dressed in what I was told was ceremonial attire. The top, breeches, and moccasins were the same color - light tan, soft leather/suede. There were a few beads but not any special design. The skin on his face was darker than his outfit and just as leathered. I believe the appearance to be a representation tailored for my particular lesson and not literal.

A headband stood out. He was an elder, with long black hair pulled back and held in place by another leather tie. The headband had a single, light-blue feather. (Light Blue for me = Communication.) He said one word. "Goodbye."

I heard an explanation. I was told I had graduated and this was not a severing of ties but a transition in our relationship. He no longer needed to hold my hand. Others were now in place to help me beyond what he had been able to provide. He helped me to learn how to listen and to communicate with spirit and to write those communications down. (His instruction prepared me for the channeling sessions with the Nightlight Energy in 1998.)

I told the person working with me. My spirit father at my home-away-from-home had come to my graduation and was there to say goodbye. It was a bit odd and definitely unexpected but I accepted a transition was underway. I also had names but could not quite get them solid. Melinda, Melissa, Melanie....none made sense. I thought it might be someone I had yet to meet.

My brother called Friday. The hospital had been frantically trying to track down possible relatives because my dad was dying. To him, them, and us - it came as a surprise. I called and was told he may or may not be there - if I tried to go. (That is when he came to flick the lights and give me a rainbow to let me know all was well.) I also sensed/knew he was fading fast. I gave him 18 hours. He held out for 19... His perfect time. The name of the hospital: St. Joseph Mercy ... The name of one of the nurses: Melanie.

When dad needed to give me important information, he didn't rely on the body. Without me knowing, he fathered me in spirit through my spirit guide Joseph. I am in awe. (Read more on how this might be so with Dr. Elmer Green and his experience working on the spirit plane with his wife Alice, as she progressed into Alzheimer's. This blog is also helpful. )

Still in transition from his most recent physical incarnation, he likes to flick the house lights when I talk on the phone with my Mom. He wants me to pass on information to her before he moves on... and I have.

We are so much more than what we seem. As others have done before me, I am glad I have worked to develop and improve my awareness of our multidimensional existence...

I kept my distance from my father in the physical plane knowing it was the best for all concerned. I worked through misgivings and childhood trauma, and forgave him long ago... That he showed up as a spirit guide - while both our physical selves worked out karma - I am relieved to know.

We had a wonderful spirit connection. It has now shifted but I know he is here/and there for me all - ways. I am glad he is finally free of the impossibly difficult challenges and hurdles life dealt him. I am sure he will, as he told me, check in from time to time. But for now, he is off to his next assignment from where he will touch base then return when I need an escort to my next assignment.

Death is Birth and Birth is Death. None is a final state. We are not the body. We are spirit. We die to be reborn....we are born to die in every possible interpretation... and many more.

And in death, as in life, clearly we get to wear many hats. : ) And so it is...

Dad says I am a bit gloomy about all this - he would prefer I remember his musical side....(He played the trombone - I remember that as a bit icky...) - He continues... the songs! the artists! the singers!

*He had quite a stash of 8 tracks. We listened to Claudine Longet, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Elvis, Jimmy Durante, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald. Dad had soul!

We used to visit the train station to watch the trains. Seated at the cafe bar, he would order our favorite desert and introduce us to the cook as his son and daughter. The pride in that statement resonates to this day. The pie was lemon meringue: still my favorite.

In perfect time I come to you,
and whether you know it or not,
I release you to live another day.

I come to set you free.
In freedom,
you will know me again.

You do not have to wait for my arrival.
Release your self to me

and live another day today. - wendy
