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 ;)

Conscious evolution .. Rupert Sheldrake, Science and TED

“There is a single light of science, and to brighten it anywhere is to brighten it everywhere.” - Isaac Asimov -

Remember when you had an idea so profound, so original and so outside the "norm" of your peer group that the only response you got in return was a blank stare?

Beyond that, you found a noticeable shift in your social circle from acceptance to polite tolerance and ... then ... only those who were also out on a limb or totally secure in their outcast status would dare to associate with you.

However, in private, you would get a call or be asked to field a question that the "norm" would scoff at and/or not allow a hearing.

Rupert Sheldrake is one of the cool kids who, judging from the TED response, is deemed to be far outside the norm of his scientific peer group - a group that (apparently) finds the very existence of his ideas so threatening that he got banned from TED.

Those of us who looked to TED as a wonderful new arena for exploration of ideas, research, science and all things cutting edge found an unexpected reality. Censorship. By TED? What? Why? Who is TED, really? What status quo has Sheldrake threatened? Answers, I don't have.

The petition now is being shared and signed to get TED to reinstate the Sheldrake presentation and recall it from TED search oblivion.

It may well be - given the make-up of the invisible TED board wizards - the status quo science presentations are intentionally blind. But that doesn't mean everyone else must follow suit.

Why not evolve and create a more representational group. Scientists who explore the fringe might be cast out from the conservative core but they help us get from point A to Quantum and that's where we are collectively growing.

Here's the Sheldrake presentation - Banned for boldly going his own direction and inadvertently throwing bricks at those who are threatened when asked to showcase and champion an original conclusion that counters the old school mainframe.


Thank you, Rupert Sheldrake. These ideas are so worth sharing.

My reality is not the norm. Science to back it up is extremely hard to come by but I know it exists or soon will. For me, conscious creation involves the constant adapting, expanding and re-framing of my understanding of reality.

Reality shifts exponentially when I am able to get outside the body to recover and explore consciousness and how it is present without a body, how it exists everywhere we are - and even - where we are not.

Evolution of consciousness is ongoing as we are developing awareness far beyond our scientific knowns. If we compare our evolution to others in our realm, it would seem we are destined not to recognize the manifestation of self achieved in our final phase.

Imagine this process as having been well underway for quite some time and the early wave of our final phase version of self is already here checking up on our progress, observing all the kicking and screaming of definitions and swatting at lights in the dark, claiming non human form is soul less, consciousness is fiction and source is mind, when source is nothing we have yet managed to quantify and those lights are an essential part of our larger identity trying to clue us in.

We are a work in progress. Evolution is built into the program. Transcendence is in the cards. The following tadpole reference is spot on.  

“Man is an artifact designed for space travel. He is not designed to remain in his present biologic state any more than a tadpole is designed to remain a tadpole.” -  William S. Burroughs
