Alternate Perceptions - and my Interview [Wendy Garrett] with Brent Raynes

Curiouser and curiouser, as the saying goes. Reality is beyond knowing. - Talking to Nightlights

So many unusual experiences are now part of my life since the Nightlight Energy entered my daily
The Energy - it
started in 1997 -
routine that I have become much more aware that what we consider to be reality might not be a consensus view after all.

Reality is more likely to be a personal engagement that can shift and fold on occasion and operate in completely unexpected and unpredictable, time-bending ways that the consensus view does not permit or acknowledge. I believe reality is interactive and relative to the experiencer. That is my personal experience.

Cameo - outside,
when the light
is turned off -
and comes on anyway.
Given I have an unorthodox view of reality (and, no doubt, I am not alone in that camp), I tend to seek out and explore topics that deviate from the conventional and consensus mindset.

Often challenging, always interesting, what we see here with our physical eyes is a tiny fraction of the totality present in "reality". That is what fascinates me and why I believe, whatever the presentation in the physical world, the unseen aspect offers a far greater and more relevant perspective on the nature of being.

Each participant on this planet is a dynamic and reflective element of consciousness. All are part of the dream in becoming. We who are participating in this adventure called "human" are evolving and expanding in awareness to recover/discover that knowing, the ONE in all.

We - at this stage of our corporeal evolution - have barely engaged a fraction of our potential. Wow! And then some.

I interviewed Brent Raynes for Wendy's Coffeehouse on Talk Radio KCMO 710 AM in September, 2017. Here is the podcast on AudioBoom. We talk about the Paranormal, Journalist/UFOlogist John Keel, EVPs and more.

Obit - reflection on meeting John Keel in the The New Yorker:

"He lectured on the nature of belief, on the variances of truth, on the dangers of extreme skepticism, and on his aversion to love. When we finally had to leave—nearly two hours later—and were standing in the doorway, Keel called us over and said, “One day you’ll know,” then bid us farewell."

Brent's interview on Mysterious America - about his book Visitors from Hidden Realms

Brent asked if he could interview me as well. So, we talked some more. Here is the newsletter if you are unfamiliar with Brent and his work. Plenty of topics and information for the curious.

Start where you feel drawn and explore. An amazing world/reality we inhabit. And what lies beyond is fantastically and phenomenally, incomprehensibly more.

Archival Newsletter for Alternate Perceptions, No. 236, November 2017
Editor: Brent Raynes (

In this issue: 

Two interviews (both audio) with your editor. One interview is with Wendy Garrett, a talk show host of Wendy's Coffeehouse on KCMO AM/FM radio out of Mission, Kansas. Wendy is also a psychic channeler, feels she has had experiences with spirits and UFOs, and shares lots of details with us! Interview.

The other interview is with Australian Fortean author and researcher Mike Williams who shares details of his personal UFO experiences and many personal thoughts about the used, abused, and confused state he perceives ufology (and other potentially interrelated fields) to be in, and expresses his opinions and admiration for the work done by pioneer UFO authors like John Keel and Jacques Vallee. 

Spiritual Belief and Practices of America's Ancient Mound Builders, Part Two, by Dr. Greg Little explains ancient death journey rituals, the construction, use, and arrangements of Indian Mounds and earthworks in all of this, and how solar and stellar alignments at certain time periods factored into ceremonies conducted to maintain spiritual balance and guidance for the journey of the soul at death. 

Operation Demon, Part 5, continues with Stan Morrison's personal journey along the borders of the known physical everyday world and alternate realities where things may become so strange and bizarre that you at times might have to do a mental reality check and perhaps even question your own sanity. 

In Reality Checking, my feature this month is entitled "Keel, Jadoo, and Clifton?" It takes you to strange events that I and others investigated in and around the small river town of Clifton, Tennessee where an angel, UFOs, a possible Bigfoot, ghosts, people awakening at exactly 3:33 a.m. (one describing possible psychic attacks from a dark entity), an underground fire that burned for years, a black magic practitioner, and the mysterious presence identifying itself through a radio as "John Keel," seemingly drawing our attention to "monsters" and "Jadoo" (which is a word meaning black magic in the Orient, and part of the title of Keel's first book back in 1957) has all been reported. 

Encounters with the Unknown: The little hairy man and the bonfire is another strange entity encounter described by Albert S. Rosales. This one (an elemental?) reported in Poland back in 1991. 

Classic Mysteries: An extraordinary UFO sighting over Cleveland, by Rick Hilberg. Cleveland, Ohio, that is. Described as one of "the best mass UFO sightings ever reported from a major American city and a truly documented unknown case." 

And, of course, we have new books hot off the presses that we have reviewed, and News links to intriguing stories and interviews from other sources out there that share our "alternate perceptions" point of view. And especially awesome for newcomers (assuming you old timers have already done so) we have lots and lots of archived back issues going back quite a few years now. 

So why wait - go now to:

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 ;)
