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 ;)

Why Affirmations Work

As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.” - Henry David Thoreau (Click the name twice for a bio.)

Affirmations work because you are removing the clutter. The more time you spend and more energy you focus on "I am and I can" ... the less time you have to ponder all the ways and reasons that you can find not to be or to achieve whatever it is you have chosen to achieve.

With belief, focus, determination, and action...(non-resistance) you move toward the goal. It is not a striving; rather, a flow. Knowing you are feeding your affirmations with every thought, one becomes more focused on removing thoughts that counter the program.

Simplicity wins. I am Happy... Affirmed. ; )

How can one affirms for a positve change in a negative settings.Like, if one has an oppressor or those who keep pestering you ?

Anonymous said...

maybe by the realms of the positive,negative doesnt exist.

wendy said...

And to continue what anon says... Non - resistance -

Hold solid to what you want to see. (your vision for yourself) Hold focus on your own awareness and engage no argument or dissent. Focus must remain on your path.

Accept the distraction as a seed pod on the wind. It does not have to be planted in you.

Bless it for calling you to attention - and let the wind take it to a new home while you carry on. Namaste.

Thanks wendy:How about if this distractions are too offensive on the personal level,like if one is being persecuted ?or being badmouthed ?

From my guides: A dynamic that is very intense indicates a Huge change in process – in you. You are in a position of claiming or rejecting your personal viewpoint. Choosing to stay in the situation and persevere, no matter what the external picture indicates, is a very serious commitment that requires inner knowing that you have something to learn from this situation/drama and desire to be nowhere else. (And that choice must have absolutely nothing to do with EGO. There is no - thing to prove. It is acceptance that you are where you need to be for whatever reason. It is not a position of victim – It is a position of “I will learn to grow my strength from within.”)

Removing yourself from the Bull’s Eye is another choice. It may be that you have outgrown your current pool of circulation and are given an indication that you must move or relocate to an environment conducive to your continued expansion. (No EGO or you will recreate that same Chaos.)

And – the last view – “what is playing out is what you asked for” – a sign – to give you incentive to address a situation or mindset that you have been ducking. It is finally loud enough (visible enough) to annoy you or inspire you to make choices in your life that you would rather not make. Necessary loss.

Loss is necessary to move onward and upward. Let go of the baggage – created by a mindset you no longer hold. Too limiting and narrow…find a place, space, arena where you can grow your thoughts and feel the resulting success of those brave enough to confront their own demons and create an environment to nurture happiness that comes from within.

You are in process of becoming more fluid....Ironing out the kinks. ; )

hi wendy:thank you for that insight,it has change my thought processes.Can it be that i attracted this drama in my life ?and i want to change and avoid now this drama,i want another challenge,with a higher purpose than this petty circumstances.But it seems its too attached to me,this distractions.Moving to a desired place is not yet possible at the moment.If only i have this "magic" of an aladdin's gennie that can instantly change my situation.

wendy said...

Law of Attraction works to a point - makes it sound like we control all - we get what we put out. But that is only on one level. Some things we encounter for other reasons. They are someone else's drama.

What we have power over is in how we choose to adjust, shift and react to our challenges. Do not discount the value of the lesson you are learning with this.

You are your reaction. The attraction may have nothing to to with present time and stem from a past life drama continuing to work out in this incarnation.

It is residual baggage you share with another soul or souls that you can release - in whatever form is best for you at this time.

Walk, shift, engage. Dance. Each response brings a unique result. This is actually a huge soul challenge for you ... a test ... and then you move forward.

You must find the Magic in you. To see this from the view of the Ant -trapped within a maze or to fly above as the Eagle and move on.

Change your perspective and take your ego out of the drama. When you do that - it has no power over you.

If you see the value in this perspective for you, commit to that process and see what has changed in 30 days.

Window Breeze said...

yes wendy,thanks,thats superb advise.I can see now clearly.In changing this perspective, what basically is this ego playing on the drama? how do this ego operates?is this the"self" that is always hurt and defensive?

wendy said...

Yes - Self - Ego is the Little You that holds on to fear, hurt and pain, it suffers and insists on playing the victim role or on getting even and lashing out - even asking for pity.

Victim and Bully are both egoic states of being. Wow! Common ground. Both are in extreme inner pain.

It is very confining to stay within that box...and it is self-destructive. Ego protects but it also restricts the healing process.

We accept life challenges to encourage us to learn how to become bigger than our problems.

And there is no right way to do that. But there is always a way.

We run the gamut from being full of ourselves...Ego - to being full Spirit...Soul. It is up to us where we choose to reside.

We never stop learning...but we do take time outs... or forget things now and then... and have to do it over. ; )

Metaphors. Find your joy...What have you gotten yourself into?? Remove the tragedy from your perspective. Look around. Your circumstances are not you.

Can it be just a big joke on you --- a kick in the b.... to get you to get out of a rut in your thinking??

Let spirit lift you. When you smile inside and find joy in being - you lighten up - or become easier for some else to lift up.......and in so doing, you are lifting yourself above Ego and the Little Self, changing your energy, your awareness, your perspective...and eventually...your circumstances.

Shift from resistant to resilient.

It is part of learning how to flow... creating an energy that empowers affirmations.
