Consciousness and Living Magical Lives

"The majority have been programmed from their past experience to expect physical decline. And while it is something they don’t want, they are programmed to expect it. And so, they’re going to get what they expect. It’s not that what they expect is the reality that everyone lives, but that everyone lives the reality of what they expect."
Excerpted from Philadelphia, PA on 5/7/03
Our Love, Esther (and Abraham and Jerry)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"The child is thinking, and receiving vibrational thought from you on the day that he enters your environment. That is the reason that beliefs are transmitted so easily from parent to child, from parent to child, from parent to child. The child is vibrationally receiving your fears, your beliefs, even without your spoken word… If you want to do that which is of greatest value for your child, give thought only to that which you want, and your child will receive only those wanted thoughts."
Our Love, Esther (and Abraham and Jerry)













These quotes serve as great examples of accessing the reality of Magical Living: Not living someone else's reality but your own. :

We are so often unaware of our programming. From the earliest of childhood imprinting we are non judgmental in our information gathering. At some point though we can start to question what we are taking in. We then will either continue with absorbing with acceptance or it starts to get conditional. And emotions, personality and programming interact.

Our physical senses take in information. They are our way to navigate in the world. Often not as strong as the animals around, like the dog's nose, we do have a broad vibrational bandwidth that we refer to as the supernatural, intuitive range. We can access it easily when we are tuned in. For some it is a constant bombardment of awareness that has to be tuned. Some are willing to go with their gut but not much more. Some hide in logic.

Being present, heart centered awareness, help us access easily these spiritual realms of being aware. Consider Time and space as senses also. Consciousness is both state and sense.

When you incorporate this bandwidth as real and helpful, life takes on a different glow and vibrancy and dimensional awareness. 

Children live in worlds filled with magic. Everything comes out of the blue. Just reflect on the face of the baby and how it lights up in wonder at something that catches it's eye. Could be you or the ray of the sunbeam, and in the unseen to your eyes. Everything causes wonder, awe and appreciation.

 Along with our own inner directives it will be shaped by adult concerns and mindsets. By adulthood most of us are living our realities established in our childhood. We will constantly be making  choices that support the reality status quo or challenge it.

A different reality has set in and magic may have a sense of being lost. It hasn't been but the reality has put it aside, maybe only to show up now and then. Maybe that is the play of the lottery in adults. Recapturing that sense of wonder, and unexpected delight.

What is it like to great each day with warmth, no expectations, only potential and surprises possible and the unexpected?

What was your self talk when you woke up this morning and began your morning ablutions? Our self talk is very helpful to indicate our magical thinking. Which will dictate our magical living.

Children and teens challenge us in how we are showing up and what we allow as real as adults. Magic and what we can call miracles are all about living with wonder, awe and appreciation at our core. For this world, each other and ourselves.

Feel the wonder, awe and appreciation as you sip your coffee, breathe in the baby smell of your child as you race after them, wipe up the spills, the quick kiss from a loved one out the door. Make the moment. All are magic in action. 

This is your reality. What do you share?

JIE Episode 20 BEing is Performance Artistry


Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast Episode 20 Blog

BEing is Performance Artistry  

Many of us might not think this way but we each truly are performance artists. Our lives are an expression of Being. So, let’s consider the elements in expressing our art in terms that any great artist in any creative endeavor comes to know, as our guide.

Sheryl Hirsch-Kramer, my guest this episode suggests this with her students: Access the avenue of where the art is already done. Simply a matter of then expressing. Sounds like being present in Heart Centered Awareness to me. We will start there.

If you have never considered yourself an artist of being, no problem. Just let yourself be present. Take your next breath through your heart and let a re-tuning and refining in your integrity of Self and Consciousness. Right in this moment, you are experiencing the art of being alive.

You, by simply breathing are expressing who you really are. Whether you are aware of it or not, you already are.   

There is that place where one is learning and the difference one feels where the medium meets the innate physical ability and the eye and internal says yes, this is my truth. Artists learn about their medium of choice, be it singing, writing, painting, numbers, people, etc. They navigate with developing skill sets and then reach maturity in the expression.

Any final piece is a marriage of inner and outer vision and intent and accomplishment. It will be an ongoing state of taking in information and awareness to express with its ebbs and flows of moments. Artists create a body of work. They will go through different periods.Sounds like living a life. 

Great artists appreciate:

Judgment is fluid. No judgement, being the best you can be, is fluid.

No pressure to conform. We spend much energy in trying to meet others’ ideals that seem to have become our ideals. They are not.
 
Thinking outside of the box. Realizing that you have a box is important in order to not be defined by it.

Take new approaches. Embrace change.

Being fearless. Putting into action what is your truth no matter your own reluctance, the environment or the prevailing opinion.

It is innate, this ability to express oneself, in some way. Everyone around you is expressing their awareness in being alive.

Just breathe into the awareness that YOU are a work of art. A unique living breathing work of art. You are Essence in human dynamic form. Sometimes we can get nervous about how we come off to another. That’s okay. Let it be excitement.

Like any great work of art, we are invited to look beneath the surface or into what is showing. We can see into the illusion of the moment and find different moments in play. We see and feel dimensions when what we are looking at may only be a flat surface. 

See another as the work of art that they truly are. Feel this planet as unique work of living art that it is. Treat both with respect.

Birthday Thanks

Last week I celebrated my 65th birthday.

When I was in my late 20's this accomplishment was not a reality in my future. I never really thought of life much beyond my late 30's I guess. Illness of all kinds and physical pain keep me thinking in terms in the moment and of short life. Astrologically speaking, apparently there was no picture of health so it would become a journey of spirit and mind working together to support the body function.

Now I am set for many more moments and a much longer life. Why limit it? I am finally getting the hang of letting go of many of my assumptions about life I picked up along the way and being in a body and wanting out of it.

I like the energy of ageless and I realize that being present is how one is ageless. Age stops becoming ones reference in how one shows up.

I would rather value and appreciate where I am right in this moment and give thanks.

Thank you to all of you who sent me birthday wishes. Over 100 of them on fb. I am doing my best to personally respond to each, as you each took the energy to share your happy tidings with me. I feel that deeply and it has been a lovely warming these last couple of days.

Many I don't know personally. And the graciousness extended is, as I said, heartwarming.

Thank you to my husband. After 43 years, there is much to recommend him. I chose well. He is the reason I am still alive and thinking in terms of living some more. But today I thank him for his computer skill sets and keeping me safe and warm and with some money in the bank and helping me deal with Medicare and insurance and all the ways one can be compromised filling in the important forms. .

Thanks to my colleagues who feed my soul and support. We all have different backgrounds and stories and share life on this planet and that adds to my delight in diversity. 

Thank you to Mother Earth and all her bounty. I drove around in the beauty of the fall sunlight and fresh air today and just reveled. Breathed it in when we parked, enjoyed the view and felt life.

Thanks to Boyd who creates music and acts as sound engineer for my podcast. He supports me in my enjoyment in spreading around this world that being able to connect to our essence and Consciousness as Spirit in human form is rich, rewarding and essential. Together we share in our awareness that Life is what you make it to be and being able to change what you make it out to be is not as hard as you might think it is. Just need to experience it.

Thank you to my mentors over the years who shared how it is possible to enjoy life if that is what you want to do. Among them Dr. Kam Yuen, Dr. Richard Bartlett, Dr. Mark Dunn, Grandmaster Foo, and their great surrounding teams of" potential explorers".

Thank you to the medical field that did not know how to define me or help me at times. Thank you to those who help me now. 

And to all of you.

Thank you for those who took a leap of faith and continue to explore Life beyond the perceived reality of the human body and mind with me.

It is lovely to be alive sharing in our grand experiment.

The Sounds that Enliven Us with Bill Protzmann


Sounds, voice and music are everywhere. Humans are hardwired to rhythm and sound at our deepest physical levels. How do our bodies, mind and environments work together to create our inner music? What and how we hear accesses our emotions directly. Joining Janet is Bill Protzmann of Music Care, Inc. Listen in as they explore how Consciousness and Life are rhythms, and how our inner music, heard in awareness, enliven us.

JIE Blog Episode 19 Inner Music



Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet 

Episode 19 Blog   Inner Music


We have inner rhythms that create body music that reflect or harmonize to the sounds and music outside of our body. What and how we hear accesses our emotions directly. It accesses in ways quicker than time spent thinking and interpreting.

Need a switch in changing emotional states? Listen to a piece of music that feels different than what you are feeling. Need comfort? Listen to a heartbeat. Need to move? Put on a bouncy tune and watch your foot tap, knee bounce, hips sway, your arms swing all without your direction or intention. Hear the water in the fountain or river and feel the peace. Feel the alignment shift between body, mind, spirit. Or in spirit, body, mind. Or mind. Body, spirit. 

Feel how you are hearing information. You are responding to tones in voice before the words hit your ear and isn’t that an interesting way to put that? Before the words hit your ear, which may have something to do with how powerful we feel what is said to us. It is a strike on the ear drum reverberating into our deepest places so quickly we have no process time. We strike the keys on the piano, stroke the cords of the harp, violin, guitar and such. 

We vibrate potential and energy in waves.  

Once something is heard it is triggering different depths of memory and resonating in ways we don’t notice. Only another vibration that is deliberately placed can counteract to clear the resonance. So, our words and sounds are important. That is what healing is, the ability to clear old resonations and bring in new harmonies and adding the range of notes that will take us to new places.

How much is the city bustle affecting your inner rhythm? How much is your heart on alert to perceived threat? Why is music becoming so important on our hand held devices? Are we using it to drown out or drone out the constant bombardment we call daily Life?

The following quotes share how we are organized in Being and in form. Take time to just relax and invite yourself to let go for a few moments and be present to the rhythms in the states of awareness they embody.

Access. Breathe through your heart and just let. Enjoy.

“Life is a song. It has its own rhythm of harmony. It is a symphony of all things which exist in major and minor keys of Polarity. It blends the discords, by opposites, into harmony which unites the whole into a grand symphony of life. To learn through experience in this life, to appreciate the symphony and lessons of life and to blend with the whole, is the object of our being here.” - Dr. Randolph Stone (founder of Polarity Therapy)

“Consciousness is somehow a by-product of the simultaneous, high frequency firing of neurons in different parts of the brain. It’s the meshing of these frequencies that generates consciousness, just as tones from individual instruments produce the rich, complex, & seamless sounds of a symphony orchestra.” - Francis Crick (1916-2004) (Molecular Biologist/Co-Discoverer of DNA and its 
significance for information transfer in living material)

“It struck me recently, that one should really consider the sequence of a protein molecule about to fold into a precise geometric form as a line of melody written in a canon form & so designed by Nature to fold back into itself, creating harmonic chords of interaction consistent with biological function.”Christian B. Anfinsen (1916-1995) (Renowned Biochemist/Nobel Prize Winner)

“It has been found that musical vibrations make their impact upon the entire body, being picked up by the nerves, spinal column, and even by the bones. This is why people who are deaf can react to music. It has also been demonstrated that music affects the pulse, respiration, and blood pressure; but it’s deepest effects, and those from which most of its curative properties are derived, are mental and emotional.” - Doren Antrim author of Music is Medicine

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” - Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

“Do you know that our soul is composed of harmony?” - Leonardo da Vinci, Notebooks (1451-1519)

“Music is the mediator between the life of the senses and the life of the spirit.” - Beethoven (1770-1827)

“Harmony sinks deep into the recesses of the soul and takes its strongest hold there, bringing grace also to the body & mind as well. Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of order”… - Plato (429-347)

JIE Ep 18 Blog/


I am using a blog posting from my friend Selina Maitreya. She is my upcoming guest on my podcast Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet releasing tomorrow Tuesday Sept 10th. 
We are going to be talking about her awareness Practical Spirituality. These are certainly not two words one hears put together often. 
She sent me this before we recorded and it was delightful to read what I know to be true in her words. She lives her daily life as her spiritual practice as all my guests and I do. 
Love, Janet 


"Many of my Facebook friends comment on my continued positive response to the difficulties that I encounter in my life.
The people that have known me a long time and know me well, remark on how I’ve changed over the years and continue to stay in a peaceful state regardless of the many challenges I face.
People ask me all the time how can you continue to see the best in others when the world is falling apart?
The reason I continue to see the positive aspects in life is because I choose to. We live in a world of polarity and for every piece of goodness we experience, there is difficulty we could have chosen.
For every bit of chaos that lands in our local or global world, we can still choose to focus our attention on the goodness that exists.
We are our attention and what we put our attention on grows.
It’s important to see what is around us, it’s critical for us to see the full picture of our life but what we choose to put our attention on in response to what we see, is the key to having a peaceful life instead of one of misery.
Read that again please. Read it over and over if you need to. For our next moment comes from our response to chaos, not from the chaos that landed. That's why I make a point of responding from a high frequency.

That my friends is the secret to a peaceful life.
How do I know that?

I know this from experience. This is how I live. This is what I teach. I have had the opportunity to witness the amazing changes my students have accomplished as we've worked together and they have learned how to create a new lifestyle, one where love, kindness and appreciation are full frontal.
I choose to put my attention on gratitude. I choose to appreciate the good that surrounds me. Everybody has goodness in their life. The wonderful aspects of your life never leave when irritation arises you simply choose to allow them to recede into the background when trouble shows up.
I challenge you the next time you’re irritated, a piece of difficulty lands or you’re handling a great tragedy to find the areas of your life that you are still grateful for and focus on them with deep intention.
This is how we heal, this is how we grow, this is how we move more quickly and easily and peacefully through our difficult times. Bring more light into your world when darkness prevails by making the choice to do so.
"Choice, it’s yours, choose wisely!"

Consciousness is the Business Model with Caitlin Hayes, Psychic Attorney


Do we relate our working environment with sanctity, respect and appreciation? Caitlin Hayes, psychic attorney, executive coach and business consultant joins Janet about this perhaps revolutionary awareness. How do we get from here to there? We will share about what we each can do about integrating Awareness into corporate, law and family business cultures.

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast 
Ep 17 Blog  Being is the Business Model

My intention with this topic was to explore how our interpretation of Consciousness is playing out in our business worlds. We have so much disconnected and discontent in our world today.

Here in the US we were looking for new approaches in government in our last election. Many hoped a businessman would offer something new to the business that government is. Not a bad idea and yet I guess it just depends on the kind of businessman you elect. 

Our actions have created a transcending opportunity of potential in action as it shines a blinding light on our darkness within. 

There are many considerations that come to mind about business as an organization of people working together. Most of human endeavor can be regarded as a business. How we are working together is the issue. Doesn’t matter if it is the mom and pop store, big box department store or our government and it branches and partners in this small world.

All will be conditioned by those involved in the process. The resulting expression as product or service will reflect this. You hear the phrase “working relationship” which will always reference “not working relationship” into the equation. There is a lot of this present in ruling either by dictator or groups of interests.  

All too often we are being shown how many of our business models lately are reflecting our feeling of disconnect with all. We are having to ask companies to be more responsible in their interface with all of us, be they the media, Facebook, Walmart or our bodies of Congress and The White House.

Where do our tenets about Being come into play? I am not talking religious dogma. I am talking about treating all with Oneness as basis, our shared connection. The offering of respect, appreciation and gratitude no matter the face. It is okay to have a different viewpoint or orientation than another. Life is a spectrum after all. But being in judgment of that face is not enriching any of us and is a destructive path to follow.

Standards in practice of “Do no harm, only help, treat others as you would like to be treated yourself” often disappear when up against the drive of business survival, money or power. Our great ideas and ways of being helpful get compromised. Personal or corporate reasons move us to take actions not always embracing others but as adversarial. Could be your competitor or your family. If we are in a state of fighting for our job or jobs, the work environment becomes compromised.

Just because one has a good idea that fills a need well does not make one a business owner or partner in successful relations with others. As business owner of any kind, how you treat others starts with yourself and reflects in your employees. If you are an employee, same goes with your colleagues. How are you using self-care? If your idea of self-care is measured in the number of bottles of beer or wine, you consume at night something is not right.

No time to go on retreat or sabbatical? Then use your time in the bathroom wisely. Instead of daydreaming your stream contemplate and appreciate your moment. Do you make it easy for your crew to share their awareness and needs they have at work and at home? How responsive, not responsible, are we with others?

Being present is not a burden. It is not a call to arms to do something or make something right or solve. That will come out of our resulting inspired action. Being present comes as our response to first valuing our self and valuing others. Listening is what is important and often makes the difference in outcome.

Same as with our children. They need an ear and heart, not always you to solve the problem. Letting them become resourceful may lead you on a merry dance yes and will have its own rewards.

A company is as healthy as the relation of the CEO to the janitor in the business. When both are being treated with respect, we all benefit. Anything else indicates a challenge to play with.

When was the last time you told someone around you, “Hello”.  “Thank you. I appreciate your helping me out”, be it home or office?

Being is the business model.

Consciousness and a Heart Beating



I had a stent put into an artery in my heart a few days ago. Being open to possibilities and choices brings changes to incorporate. There are chemical assists to engage at just the right levels and types. New patterns in breath and heart beat coordination. 

All has brought information to enhance my state of awareness that Life is in the beats of a heart.

My heart beats in the delight of just beating.

JIE Ep 16 Blog/ Hello, My Other Self


Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast

Ep 16 Hello, My Other Self

"Hello, My Other Self" is the traditional greeting between the Unangen Peoples. Stop in this moment and notice what happens when you speak it. Oneness is present. There is no state of separation. 

You are a child. Your world is a 360-degree view of perspective. You are on a 12 mile by 5 mile island in the Bering Sea with only 450 other humans with you. You are a child of Spirit and brought up with the awareness of your culture’s journeys from Egypt 10,000 years earlier.  Millions of seal, whale, marine life surround your island. You step out and eat fresh. There is no storage of food. There is no tree line, and probably not a lot of vegetables either.

We are living inside out. Instead of Heart connecting us to everything as one, mind now directs the heart into doing. We have become doers instead of beings. We are taught and told to stuff our concerns and wounds.

Find your courage within. Trust in Life, the Universe, Trust. Embody Trust. Don’t think it. Embody it. When you come from a sense of spirituality, of Consciousness in human form, this is much easier to do. Is there a need to be afraid of what you feel, what you think, what you don’t want to notice? This is separation as Self.

No matter your references you can always just ask “Is this life affirming, is this life sustaining?” Listen and be guided by what your heart shares with you. So often we know the right thing to do or say or what is really going on and we don’t want to lose our illusions. We settle for less self- worth and respect when we might be gaining in income or title.This is separation.

Listen. Ask your heart what to do in response.  We must take responsibility for our actions.  Healing ourselves starts with acknowledging that we are bleeding. Helping ourselves requires us ask for help of ourselves from our Essence and from others.

Isolation is not anyone’s friend. I know of no one who enjoys isolation or separateness that is forced on them or as a reaction. It is a demeaning state. It creates a solitary confinement for anyone, and we use it for those in prison who threaten others’ safety.

What have we created in this time and space of history and daily life? Systems are not working. Evolution is being held back in many ways for different reasons. Often it is fear in change as a loss of position. In order to not break down in anarchy we are having to come to terms with ourselves in ways we have not before so our systems can reflect society better.

We are energy beings. What we put out in the world is our energy.

Self-talk is vital to pay attention to, your internal running commentary. Don’t judge it negative even if you interpret it that way. Allow it to reveal to yourself your directions of thoughts what-ever they might be. Make choices. Change your thinking when it is not life affirming, life sustaining. Saying one thing and feeling another is separateness.

My friend Ilarion mentions that we can learn much about ourselves and those around us by observing and feeling. If you look at others in judgment pro or con, you are doing it from the outside. This is separateness.

Emotions are key in how they are acknowledged and used. They are what gives us as human life impetus of expression. Of all kinds whether you like them or not. We are ruled by them. Logic is often a reactive state, defending one against a potential hurt.  Appreciating and demonstrating our emotions in healthy ways will go a long way in a life. As they are present in every moment of a life. They are what people remember when you have left the room, the feeling of you. Emotions empower our stories and foster separation or dissolve it.

Watch a two-year-old child Ilarion suggested. They are masters of energy. They don’t store it. They express it. They don’t swallow their energies and feelings. Put two together and they can play, fight, cry and make up in the blink of our eyes. They work it all out without our interference. Interfering out of our own needs and emotions is stifling. 

Great parenting is being able to let our children explore their world as love in action and in balance with safety. Don’t stifle their emotions. Don’t dictate behavior and position. Or they will grow up just like you are. Is that what you want for your children? To be like you or to be the best they can be?

According to the Wisdom Weavers, we are the generation to decide the fate of humankind. We are that powerful. They are that concerned with what we have empowered, the state of separation that has become dominant in our dealing with life, in our unknowing.

Hello, My Other Self. It is very nice to meet you.

Consciousness and BEING Present again

 I am a very fortunate woman. I will have recorded 6 conversations in 3 weeks for upcoming episodes of my podcast Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet. As I craft each episode, with all its elements, I listen in to the conversation again and it puts me right into when we recorded it as vital, active, engaging.

Now, as listener, I hear different things in my focus. When recording I am being present, inviting you to join us and bring into focus with my guest, and the vibrations we create as resonance. Our field awareness combines and dances. I notice where those vibrations ripple out in awareness, interacting and what is coming back. In listening, I am present again to all that. My guests are present again. In this work and way of organizing reality, time and space are malleable, expanding and contracting and disappearing all together at times.

Energies comes together. A synergy, gets puts into a limitless, timeless, spaceless place that is accessible to all who engage it. And what is really nice is that any and every time you might listen to the episode, especially more than once, you will be in this field of being present and yet different. You will hear different things, something new catches your focus, it is fresh again. You will feel an enriching awareness of your own. We are all either validating, changing or evolving whether we notice it or not in our moments together.

One thing that catches my attention, in this moment, is the difference in being a believer and Being. Your power connection to your authentic voice is different. My guests pretty much across the board BE. They are in the state of BEING. We embrace connection as Oneness and Wholeness. Oneness as morphic resonance, where we share in genetic memories of the human design and much more to be honest. We share in memories of life forms, energies, this incredible planet and the cosmos. History is everywhere in frequencies present. Some  of us are very cognizant of these dynamics. Morphic entanglement, our ability to tap into what others are feeling and thinking at the same time is present.

We are so powerful we generate and manipulate our shared reality creating it as we breathe, day to day. This is the reflective power in our social media world and how it is affecting all of us. Wholeness is how our life experiences, generated out our bias and perceptions as our stories, encompasses all the ups and downs in form and out of physical form into a narrative of Life, as Self, as form, along with Spirit, and other non physical energies, as part of the Consciousness Core.

You notice I don't use the word God. Or Source or Universe. I appreciate that these words come with limits of our human definition, no matter the body of knowledge or knowing. In using Consciousness as my reference for all, it is free of those dictates that the others have become. It allows for the known, unknown, and everything in-between to have value without judgment or label. Too often our other words encompass definitions which is creating a limit. Many of us are bigger than that. 

My guests represent a myriad of connections in BEING. How they, as unique individuals celebrate with me the collective that is Consciousness is sweet. "All roads lead to Rome" always comes to mind. On our individual Journeys OF Enlightenment, not TO, we access ranges in vibrational BEING. Same vibrations, just different labels within our references at times.

What do we know that is helpful? Self honesty. One thing we share in common is our willingness to hear our truths and not want what we want to be true. And we hold this gently and compassionately for ourselves. We don't always buy into our illusions. We are choosy. Only then can we be open to what is available in Being Spirit in human form. This is BEING.

Come join us in the grace in BEING that you will find in listening in. Let it fill your corners of doubt and clear them out. Support hearing your truths, you authentic voice and living in an alignment that brings you what you are thirsty for, the love in connection as Oneness and Wholeness. 

I would be honored to have you join us.

Toodles,

15/Consciousness and the Awakened Hearts of Friendship

In her book The Awakening of Friendship Carol Olivia Adams articulates what it means to live with others sharing on this planet.

What is essential to enjoying Life? Carol identifies 9 core principles that awaken us to how to live with others. They are also priceless in dealing with ourselves. They bring out the best in each of us. 

These principles may seem as only ideal concepts or conditional at times but they are within each of us. Some are as dynamics more awakened than others or maybe not so apparent. But they are what gives us meaning to embracing Oneness, Wholeness and our spiritual terrain. There can be no harm in utilizing them.  

These principles are to be found in the wisdom of patience and time, and our inner sense of security which brings serenity. It is in our courageous action of thought and motion guiding us and the art of listening to others that gives us not only perspective but witnessing for another.  Compassion brings us wisdom in action. Our willingness to engage faith and experience the gift in generous sharing leads us to gratitude and back to the essence of love. We hold this in our human emotional heart and as the essence of all as Consciousness.

Our heart is always beating when it is alive. It registers the degree of aliveness of the being that surrounds it. It just keeps beating, in all conditions of environmental chemistry. It registers ebbs and flows of blood. It registers the rhythm of our life.  

Each of us is a unique human individual though we share in similar actions and dynamics as a species.

I know what makes my heart beat physically easier. I know what my emotional heart feels like when it is filled with the pleasure of a smile or held hand, or someone valuing me. I know what serenity I feel as Spirit in connection with another as Consciousness.

It leaves me grateful to be alive, to feel, to think, to connect in the physical and non physical realms of Being.

My heart is awake. Is yours?

Consciousness and Song of the Century

There is a wonderful documentary on Netflix currently. John &Yoko: Above Us Only Sky

It is all about John Lennon and his life with Yoko Ono. Back in the day she was presented as a strange Oriental woman artist who had mesmerized John away from the Beatles. The film is about the dynamics at play in their relationship with themselves, the Beatles and most of all, their music. Details that I did not know and probably most of us didn't know then and don't know now. If you are at all interested in the process of artists and life reflects where they are and how they express you will enjoy this. 

I was in my early 20's, living in California, very ill and doing the best I could in my world. Their glamorous New York life was very different from mine.

So, as we all do, I made assumptions about someone else in their live based on what my life was like. Or, by what I read. I apologize to John Lennon and Yoko Ono. And to everyone else I made assumptions about. I look not to do that these days.  

I always enjoyed this song. Yet, it seemed more about imagination as frivolous than real as creative force at the time to me in that sense of myself. And sad that we had to imagine and what was not real. 

Now, in hindsight and my ability to see, know and appreciate more than I did then, this is not so pie in the sky. It calls to the deepest place inside of us, what ever the words you may use. It is about the power of the mind and spirit, the essence in each of us, as Consciousness, working together in an inner harmony if we only allow it to be our truth. 
Morphic resonance will help take care of the rest of us who are tuned in. 

It is a theme for consciousness technologies. 

Imagine was voted Song of the Century by those who track that sort of thing. Let yourself just sit and listen and feel this time, as Consciousness, in Heart Centered Awareness, that it is us, in malleable time and space. Imagine it into reality. Bring it into the NOW.

I have included a link to a demo recording John made at his home studio before it's release.    

Imagine written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono


Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today (ah ah ah)
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world
You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one.

Yoko Ono was finally given writing credit a few years ago. Lyric Find, where I found the lyrics still only lists John Lennon as the writer. Imagine that. Only 40 years later does she get credit.
