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 ;)

Gifts and Blessings - and lessons from the Nightlights

~ A gift received as a result of personal sacrifice makes the recipient an indentured servant. True gifts have no strings, as they are the result of abundance. - The Nightlights...and, of course, wendy :)

When I posted this in my status bar on Facebook, David responded - some of the thread as follows:
David Franklin Farkas
Were they talking about physical gifts or spiritual gifts? Most spiritual gifts require personal sacrifice or a 'dark night of the soul' or a journey, or training and practice?

Indeed physical / financial gifts are usually indentured servitude... and the system is intentionally set up that way by those with the gifts to convey. Money traditionally flows upstream, not down stream.

Feudalism continues, just more subtly. Witness Goldman Sacks selling derivatives they knew were likely to fold, so they made their money by betting against them (selling short.) They won, the 'little guys' they sold the derivatives to lost.

Wendy Garrett
A reference to the physical...where all our/the excess karmic baggage is processed. Property and gifts are, in the great majority of cases, attachments and/or carrots of a sort. - Even those that are called Awards/Rewards.

Physical strings (include emotions) serve to chord and tie one up. On the flip side - connecting to spiritual strings can set one free. Neither good or bad. Both are necessary states of being to explore in the human process of spiritual evolution.

The most extraordinary spiritual gifts are earned when we are willing to apply our mind, body, spirit and soul to the process - when we can intentionally dream and walk our talk - we are whole - fully present/aware. Integrating the consciousness to the conscience in essence form (light). The first lesson: forgiveness. lesson two: humility. The gift of forgiveness=freedom. The gift of humility=compassion. All is one.

Time for a new book,Wendy!

--- When I can determine what might be most helpful to pass along and let it go without trying to re-un-over think the whole process, I have one ready to go. And I am working with someone who might help me in that direction. No matter what, the nightlights are always on and they keep me awake to the wonder in the world. <3 And that is where all the Magic comes from. :)
