This Memorial Day

I looked to see what I wrote last year and if it still applied. Yes, remembering does.

All the best to you and your memories and also to those forgotten or who have no family to remember them perhaps here and on foreign fields. . 

This is what I wrote.

The energy behind Memorial Day in the United States of America is of recognizing and remembering those who had died while serving in wars for this country. It became a united effort out of different locations in this nation after our Civil War in the mid 1800's and recognized as a legal holiday soon after.

Over 150 years later we are still remembering those have died in service. 

I will spend today thinking of them and us today. How far we have come, how far we have not come.
And through it all I will be grateful to those no longer present in form who are still with us in mind and spirit, if not body.

Episode 36 blog/ Recognizing Our BEing In Connection With Life Around Us  

Some of us are tuned in to life around us. Not only human life but the other animal forms that we live with on this planet. We are tuned into the flora, be it tree or grass blade. We are sensitive to the environmental input and conditions of sun, wind, rain and the soil and rocks beneath us. Some of us are very aware of life forms around us that no longer have the form. They can be energies of the past, present, future or out of time. Energy takes many different forms.

If we focus on the influences of our other animals and earth life that surround us, we are enriched. We experience the connection that is always present but maybe not held in much awareness. Many of my friends enjoy communion with animal forms of all kinds. Information will flow differently than it does in humans as species have different communication styles. But at heart, as any of us living with animals we consider pets or animals we work with, know that there is connection that comes with recognition of life to life free of our limiting perceptions.

The world of service animals are always demonstrating their ability to connect with humans beyond speech. Social media is full of instances of animal to animal interactions and animal to human interactions that we all respond to. They touch us deeper than logic might presume. They touch as at our emotional heart level and deeper into our Essence core of Oneness. They touch us just by being without agenda. We register at life to life level, Consciousness.

What if you could interpret what they have to offer us about living? Picking up qualities of different animals is old wisdom. Indigenous and shamanic awareness expands us. Our pop culture figures of superheroes celebrate the challenges and strengths of animal energies merging into human references.
You don’t have to believe or credit any animal connection going deeper than head scratching and petting. What you do want to pay attention to is the energy you start to share with our animal of choice. There is an honesty present. There can be affection in the connection both directions. There is a lower vibration that soothes us, there is quiet mind present. There is, no story, no mind of illusion and bias.

Animals are very present creatures. Here one minute as they may be food the next. Our pets don’t make the distinctions we do as they absorb our vibrations. They are excellent are reading our energies as we come in the door. Dogs will care usually. It would seem cats may. 

 Life is simple for an animal. Eat, sleep and play to develop skills to live another day. They are often living in pecking orders. Every one has a role they play within the clan and society.

Other mammal mothers care for their young and mourn their dead and can live lifetimes together in mother/daughter/grandmother/aunts in the groups. They may live in groups working together to feed and protect each other. They demonstrate memories of all kinds and remarkable abilities to adapt and interact with their surrounding environments for safety and courtship. They have heightened senses, beyond the human limits that they are always utilizing.

Get down on your knees sometime. Visually scan the level that animals see at. What are you aware of? Notice how up close and personal everything is and how helpful it is to have heightened senses to feel vibrations in the environment around you registering tactile, sound and air wave disturbances. Consider the vision of an eagle that can see clearly and lock on a rabbit 2 miles away. How far can you see accurately?

How is life different for them and what can they offer us in living on this planet? Why care? Because we are the species creating and manipulating this planet more so than any other. We are the ones leaving massive changes on this planet so quickly. Many of us like to kill for pleasure which is not something animals demonstrate much. Not the elephant or the horse or worm.

And, every thing we have created and manufactured that we have throw away is piling up. Animals use every bit of their kill or leave to others to finish off and enrich the soil when it passes through their systems. Every nest or den left behind is used by another.  

There is no waste in the worlds of animals and of Mother Nature. But there is in ours. What might we gain in stopping our products of entitlements and shift to replenishing as we utilize what our environments can provide us in making life easier.

Take time to sit in your calm center of Heart Centered Awareness and let yourself become free of your mind dictates for just a bit. And consider what animal holds awareness for you? Have a conversation about what is important about life and feel the wisdom that is present. Or go bigger and let whatever life form that has wisdom to come forward and share. Let yourself be surprised by what or who shows up.

Then consider talking to Mother Earth. Sense your way.

All is encoded information. Value your connection.

"The Grand Revelation" by Harvey Kraft

This week I am sharing with you a poem from Harvey Kraft. He was a guest on my Episode 4 of Journeys into Enlightenment with Janet podcast. We talk about Consciousness BEing a Sense and what happens when we consider it this as well as a state of awareness.

He is Author of "The Buddha from Babylon"​ Digitalism, Transformational Leader, Spiritual Archeologist

You can catch his frequent postings on LinkedIn and Instagram (@Buddhascope).


“The Grand Revelation”

It happened to me
In an unexpected way
At an unexpected time
When I was neither
Ready nor willing
Caught in limbo
In the midst of a raging battle
The desire for survival and
The pursuit of meaning.

Like a spiritual laser
Entering the unseen eye
Between my eyes
The grand revelation
Drilled deep
Within me
At breakneck speed
Penetrating through
All my limitations
Until it hit
The core of my
Like a ton of bricks,
Instantly expanding
My mind
Enabling me to view
The overarching panorama of
What’s going on
Here now
From a grand perspective
Beyond the limits of
Planetary scope
Individual concerns and
Human endeavors.

Piercing through my
Releasing the
Inherent wisdom
Incubating in the space of
Higher Consciousness,
The grand enlightening
Encompassed both
Mortality and eternity,
Showing me that
Neither one
Nor the other
As both —
Viewed as opposites —
Are actually one,
Releasing me
From either/or and into
The realm of fulfillment,
Causing me
To feel so light
I had no weight at all,
Like wings of a feather
Lifting me up high into an
Indescribable awakening.

Ep 35 Blog What You Might Have Missed In School

Most of us lead busy lives. If we took college classes or utilized therapy some where in our past, we might have learned about the different levels of BEing energetic humans equipped with minds. We may have learned about ways of behavior. We may have learned information in our psychology, sociology, and science classes about how to relate to ourselves. OR maybe we focused elsewhere. 
I am including an excerpt from my guest Jennifer Foster’s book 2020 The Way Forward about her Energetic Dynamic Model (EDM). You will learn all about what you forgot or never learned about BEing human. Then check out the online EDM Academy and enroll in the beginner’s course 'Core Motivational Training'. This teaches you all about 'who you are', your Power Needs and how to understand negative emotions. It is free too. The link to this free PDF is found on the website

“To achieve personal and consequential societal transformation, three essential ingredients are needed. 1) Knowledge and understanding of what has happened, how / why we have arrived at this place in the world

2) How people function from a common sense / intuitive / useful and effective perspective. 

3) The ability and necessary support to apply this knowledge to yourself, your friends/ family / workplace / community you live in.

The first volume contained in this book, a play called 'The Answer', provides a general knowledge and understanding in reference to points 1 and 2. It  looks at how we, as human beings, have been taken away from our natural state of being at an increasingly alarming rate since the industrial revolution in the late 1900s in the UK. 

It examines how this has been achieved through cultural and societal changes. The roles we have been encouraged to play in the world of work, education, women and religion have all contributed towards this end. Success, outside approval and the desire for money have overtaken our real human needs of love, care, safety and health. We have become creatures who look for our own 'Answer' outside of ourselves, and in relation to everything else that surrounds us.

'The Answer' goes on to reveal the depth of self-deception we have all been encouraged to go along with, wrapping up with a long hard look at understanding why we become distracted from our real purpose and meaning of life, by money, approval and success.

The second volume, 'The I In The Storm' focuses on the second key point.  Teaching you exactly how to identify and understand 'who you are', emotions, feelings, the imagination, the role of the mind and your personal Energetic Dynamic, this shows you in a step by step guide what you need to do in order to raise your level of awareness, consciousness and personal performance.

The third point, the ability to apply this knowledge to yourself and support to do this, is addressed by joining the on line Energy Dynamic Model Academy.”

**Remember, you can learn about the Energy Dynamic Model in any way you choose. You do not have to complete all the steps, and you can do them in any order. **

And if you have any questions, please email

Thank you.

Be safe"
