New Opportunities in our Post Viral Business Culture with John J. Murphy

The world is in shift and it is showing up big time in our business cultures. Joining Janet is John J. Murphy, the respected CEO of Venture Management Consultants, Inc. He brings awareness of our needed culture change, both as our business focus and our own inner settings. A shift from "Me-opic" (What's in it for me?) to "We-opic" (Oneness, Teamwork, Unity, Collective Consciousness, Atonement, Synergy).

Episode 39 Blog
Our Business Cultured Bodies

The qualities that define good business leadership can be applied to how we as individuals live our lives. For many work is just a place to go and earn money. It is work. It is a job. It is a livelihood.  It can be encased in grudging, resentful or apathetic energy.

Then there are those who enjoy work as an expression of their passions about life. It is about BEing in alignment with our internal drives and skills and sense of community with others. 

My delight in having John J. Murphy as my guest on Episode 39 was founded in the challenge of finding Spiritually aware people who embrace the notions of Oneness and Appreciation as their business model. And not from within religious dogma which can be filled with exclusion. John’s awareness of the people involved in business is that they have worth because they are worthy.

We can take the qualities that he finds in a successful business culture as elements applying to our own business, we find in BEing in form. He identifies the qualities every good leader resonates with and most importantly how to work with others and being able to follow along towards a common good.

Any business is only a reflection and expression of ones’ vision and desires. Which is what our bodies represent to ourselves and others when you think about it. 

Make some time to allow yourself to BE present. Breathe in and out, let your heartbeat come into awareness and where the two interact with each other. Let your definition of Self BE over there and you just BE here.

Let’s consider your body as a business. Notice who is in charge. Not in the sense of dictating but in empowering and monitoring the transfer of information to and through the different avenues our glands, organs, skeletal and system designs we operate in. 

Is there a mission, a vision that all are aware of to relate to? Is there harmony and clear communications between all departments? Are all being valued for the role they play in the totality of this body as spirit and soul and mind? 

Is there good feedback for both localized concerns and outreach? Is there infighting for supplies and favor or only appreciations for the easy seamless effort of the mechanics of taking in a breath and the beat of the heart living and all the wonder that comes from being together working in a sense of Oneness, Unity and Teamwork.

Just notice and let awareness blossom as a flower that opens in the sunlight. Let your body unfold into new appreciations of your new normal of BEing.

How to Bring the Dream Back to America by Deepak Chopra MD

This came across my LinkedIn news feed last week. I though you might enjoy it. He speaks so clearly about where we are in our outward and inward Journeys of Enlightenment. How to Bring the Dream Back to America
By Deepak Chopra™ MD

Massive crises have one great advantage: They show you where you stand. The sight can be distressing and shocking. But it would be wrong to say “Who knew?” We all knew. In this country you’d have to be willfully ignorant to not know about racism, police brutality, income inequality, global warming, the staggering cost of medical care, and the rapacious activity of huge international corporations. 
A secondary benefit of a massive crisis is that change can occur. People have waked up enough to protest racism and police brutality. COVID-19 deaths have waked up enough people that Medicare for all has a viable chance of happening. We cannot afford to keep recycling the same old story once things get back to normal. As overwhelming as a massive crisis is, the good news is that the solutions are just as well known as the problems. 
If you stare this crisis in the face without flinching, the solutions stare back at you. They include
·          Social justice. This can be solved with a fair, impartial court system and a police force that isn’t skewed to victimize minorities.
·          Economic justice. This can be solved by guaranteeing a safety net for every citizen of the kind that exists in countries where social democracy already works.
·          Sustainability. This can be solved by removing the pollutants and toxins that everyone knows are causing climate change.
·          Peace and conflict resolution. This can be solved by demilitarizing the world and ending us-versus-them thinking.
·          Epidemic disease. This can be solved by taking public health seriously everywhere it is lagging.
·          Unhappiness and discontent. This can be solved largely by doing everything else on the list.
Each of these problems, by general consensus, is moving in the wrong direction. Even though everyone knows what the problems are, and generally speaking the solutions are staring us in the face, the situation isn’t improving. Why? Slavery, child labor, lynching, tainted food, and totalitarianism were changed in the past, and at the time when reformers confronted these horrific problems, the same obstacles were presented by rich, powerful, corrupt, entrenched forces acting in bad faith that we see today. 
Something fundamental is as true today as in the distant past: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” The axiom came from Edmund Burke, a giant in 18th-century English politics who also happened to be a conservative. Reformers count on good men (and women) to act on what they already know. This is a simple matter of vision. Change your vision, get enough people to agree with you, and good prevails. 
I think of this as the new American Dream, because the old American Dream no longer inspires the vast majority of us. The Land of Opportunity is the old American Dream, to put it in a nutshell. But where has opportunity gotten us? Rampant materialism, mindless consumerism, the dominance of the rich against the poor, woeful social mobility, unchecked polluters, political apathy that has allowed two generations of reactionaries to advance their agenda. Hollowness and corruption were not supposed to be the legacy of the American Dream, but now we’ve learned to live with them in the hope that the goodies we amass won’t be taken from us. 
The tragic irony is that every problem can be solved without sacrificing American prosperity. What did polluted air and water, exorbitantly expensive health care, stockpiles of nuclear weapons, trampled minorities, the burgeoning super rich, the corporate stripping of retirement plans, and venal demagogues in places of power do to make you happier? It’s not a wild surmise to answer “Next to nothing.” 
The United States has around 4.5% of the world’s population while generating 20% of the global economy, leading the world in greenhouse gas emissions (second only to China), enjoying the world’s most expensive health care with the worst returns from the existing medical system, and standing alone among developed Western nations in not guaranteeing housing, education, and free medical care to its citizens. We do not have to call these things the product of evil, but they are certainly the product of inattention, inertia, social barriers, reactionary political forces, apathy, and a lack of shared vision. 
Of all the things that keep us from a better life, I think the lack of shared vision is the one we can change right now, because no outside power can stifle the mind completely. The mind is free if you wake up to what you already know is right. Such a step isn’t difficult, but another maxim must be heeded: “Be the change you want to see in the world.” 
If you know what the solutions are, you are already part of the new American Dream. You are not a victim of fate, circumstances, or history as long as you are awake instead of asleep. The real opportunities have never been material in the first place but mental. No one has taken that opportunity away from you. Only habit and inertia has caused the sleepiness of the past to remain in place. Being the change you want to see in the world doesn’t require unusual courage or scary action. 
It only requires that you stop telling yourself that things will change while at the same time recycling the same old attitudes, beliefs, fears, blindness, conditioning, and apathy. Those are the pernicious forces that led us into the current crisis. If American exceptionalism is true, then why are we the worst country in the world to deal with the pandemic, led by reprehensible politicians intent on preventing the common good instead of promoting it? The only shred of exceptionalism left to us is a vision of possibilities. To me, a new American Dream requires nothing more, thank goodness.
DEEPAK CHOPRA™ MD, FACP, founder of The Chopra Foundation, a non-profit entity for research on well-being and humanitarianism, and Chopra Global, a modern-day health company at the intersection of science and spirituality, is a world-renowned pioneer in integrative medicine and personal transformation.

JIE Episode 38 blog/ Righting Our Ship, Cleaning Up The Mess, Sailing A New Course

Journey Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast releasing Tuesday June 16, 2020 

Episode 38 Blog: Righting Our Ship, Cleaning Up The Mess, Sailing A New Course

Self awareness and this leap in Consciousness does not have to be difficult. We have to admit that each of us is dealing with a lot of stuff to consider on our individual journeys of enlightenment. It is a crash course in coming into new alignments if we want.

Let’s think in terms of ships at sea. This virus has created a tailspin, an eddy in the waters that we are caught up in.So we are in the flux of shift and defiance and waiting.

Our boats do not float well anymore and in truth they have been going in circles and limping along for a number of years. (do ships limp?) We may have been sailing along but we couldn’t see and couldn’t feel what we were about as we dealt with the tides and waves and water up to our necks, too busy in our frantic way to see where we were. 

Water has been flooding us. Right now, it feels like the tide has gone out and the entirety of the ship is revealed wrecked upon the beach. Be it schooner, ocean liner or destroyer all has been revealed. It may look okay on the outside, but it is havoc inside.

It turns out our ship was overloaded with stuff and it was weighing the ship down and dragging it down. Loading up at every port of call but never unloading. Our captain was busy elsewhere playing cards or playing video power games and there was no one on the deck for years, with the wheel lashed down not moving. 

Right now, we are free to breathe. And utilize this time of virus as an opportunity to clean house of the debris and reorganize. Sometimes one can be challenged to get rid of things that hold our sentiments. Good and bad gets all mixed in together and we can’t see or feel our way clear.

Raising our consciousness is about opening up to awareness and new expressions in BEing. Learning what makes you tick and where our memories and triggered reactions are harbored. Letting more daylight in shows us the clutter and the dust in our senses of time and space.

So make it easy on yourself. Use your magic and just notice. Allow yourself to not have to labor, but enjoy the flow of rising back out of the muck. Use Jennifer Foster's EDM system of power needs and organization to enjoy finding out about yourself.

Just let this be a time of renewal and transcendence and right your ship. Put in a new motor, new GPS, sails, on board alarm system and a working crew that you love and love you. Let yourself enjoy being present and in your active sense of reality with fluid time and space, listen, let and feel.

It takes a willingness to not beat oneself up and stop and listen. Does not take money, or good looks. Does not require any special skills or props, only our willingness. To not look at life as a problem to solve. You are not a problem to solve, you are not cursed. It can be so easy to think this way after all these years, to feel this way. Stop it. This is Self and that is only us in our disillusions.

There are only orientations and perspectives, and it is easy to reframe them into new conclusions when you stop the habituated ways of your thinking. Being present makes transcendence easy. If you believe in easy being possible for you. Stripe away every emotion, belief and listen to your thought. In the moment. Listen. Hear what you are saying and feel what you are saying.  Is it true or just a bunch of conditions and considerations from other people? Are you, like the ship full of stuff dragging your ship down?

As in any moment of BEing on this planet, understanding what and why we do what we do can be confusing. Right now is an incredible opportunity to step out of our day to day routines and look around and notice what we have created as our lives. How out of alignment we have become. Having new tools of understanding why and what is directing our inner lives and outer expressions is vital to enjoying new ways, new roles new courses.

The Reality of Scalar Energy with Tom Paladino

So many of us can feel compromised in BEing in form. What would it be like to be able to boost and stabilize our energetic human footprint and inner sense of prana, chi, mana, radiant energy? Joining Janet is Tom Paladino of Scalar Light, who explains what scalar energy is and how it is the basis of all life in our quantum realm of Consciousness.

JIE Episode 37 Blog/ At The Our Core Of Our BEing

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet 
Podcast releasing Tuesday June 2, 2020 

Episode 37 Blog/ At The Core Of Our BEing   

I am not in any way shape or form with any level of training as a scientist with specific training and learning traditions. But I can speak to their fields of knowledge from my own experience and wisdom.  

Consciousness is made up of many things. Actually every thing, in the cosmos is part of collective we call Consciousness. Be it energy or form of some sort that we can observe and that which we cannot observe as it has no observable physical form but is just as real. And then there is Potential, the Unknown. Space too is not empty but filled with dynamic energies we can label.

Depending on your training you can take apart all the known and unknown factors that we use as anchors in Consciousness. Things like electricity and gravity and magnetism can be observed taking place and then there is what is taking place that is not seen but maybe observed over years, like the nature of black holes. There is also Scalar energy which is found on our quantum level of awareness. 

Go inward and sit in the seat of the Spirit realm as such. It is the quantum realm. It all can get confusing at times when we are thinking about it. Religion and what we think spirituality is, what metaphysics is and what science is finally identifying comes with language that can just create more confusion when we have broad backgrounds of inquiry and exploration about BEing. Pile on lots of studies and confusion can reign in the alignment. Different traditions use different language for referencing the same thing. And then one may tend to use a mix of terminology.

So we pull back the labels and just let our senses experience. We pull back and let mind relax and we enter into the world of scalar dynamics and energy.  We enter our core Essence as Consciousness.

Scalar energy is quantum energy. It is life force, called prana, chi, mana, zero point field, and other things. We can feel it. We can manipulate it. We can create with it. We can heal with it. We don’t make it. It is the given.

My metaphysical senses and abilities at an early age took me places with being intuitive and psychic and hot hands that could make others feel better, clear conditions. My hands don’t get that hot these days but if I wave my hand people can fall over.

By my adult years, my life’s health journey was compromising the length and quality of life. I would come to find myself exploring into the quantum realm of embracing Life. I had to go beyond any training or tradition of medicine. Going beyond my own or anyone else’s construction of God, Source, Universe and the Spirit realm. Taking all the metaphysical skills I had and reframing conclusions and seeming certainties into a state of just information, not judgments that I was not even aware I was holding.  

I reconnected with the power of not just Self/Mind but of not seeing a spiritual life in terms of good and evil, the world full of rights and wrongs and thinking that mind was all there was and believing in my limitations as real. Any emotion, be it love, fear, abandonment, etc., any trauma of abuse or compromise had value in the scheme of things. My judgments were the issues. My human values.    

I started to explore the reality of Consciousness that our quantum levels of awareness embody. I had to find a way out of my box that was turning into a casket.

I didn’t have to become a physicist or quantum scientist. I just began to appreciate the growing field of Consciousness technologies. And sharpening up my sense of bias, of judgments and conclusions that are in every thing we observe and label in any tradition of learning. I just learned to let go of what I thought something had to be into just being open to noticing what was present to my senses and not judging the information. To be in a state of Essence.

I can feel when bias is present in the word used. I could pull the qualities of awareness into my own observations about energy. To be free of any religious, spiritual labels and encompassing beliefs that not allowing me to access potential. To shift how I was experiencing life from within my own bias of rules about life and those traditions of learning were encompassing. How I was fulfilling my destiny and playing into my own creation.  I needed to create different rules of bias if I was to live.

And so, it began, this part of my journey of enlightenment. Into BEing. I had been all along but not with any awareness that I was forming my reality. That I would start unfolding into my truth of Essence as Consciousness free of any dictates we label. 

Someone can tell you something and you agree or disagree it is true because it has no connection to you within.  You don’t feel any connection. And the connection can be there but confusion/avoidance/resistance is wrapped around it. Connection is a feeling. It is also a sense and a state of awareness.

Scalar energy is in the core, the heart of everything that is in the cosmos and in us. It is sunlight and starlight and it is the essence of Life.
