Episode 52 blog/ Let’s Do It Again


It has been frustrating to write a blog for this episode. I haven’t had one clear focus. Both you and I have been enjoying all the portals that Crystal has provided us with as this year comes to an end.

And, end of years are about the year in review and mine is also focused on another remarkable year of this podcast. It has been my delight and saving grace at times. I think I will save that for my first episode in January 2021 that is in a couple of weeks.

With Endings come conclusions. Here are some of mine as we call it a wrap on this year.  

The uproar of this last year, in virus, politics and democracy, racial bias and the collapse of so much we take for granted, like the air, shared breath and paychecks. We have all felt under assault and daily routines compromised. Much will never be the same. How do we chose to live together and what it takes for a society to stand in grace and harmony? Maybe it is not important to all. It is to me.

I look to provide a sense of something different for us to experience. Whatever is out there is a reflection of our inner worlds. You know that. How you think forms your sense of reality. The questions we find ourselves shaking our heads about have origins in someone’s thinking and feelings. What version of reality are they living in? Different than mine.

I have seen this year, through the filter of Respect, and unfortunately, too many instances of lack of respect. Rudeness, fear, yelling, the manipulation of truth to convince others who are not in the know,  denial, resistance, rebelling, destruction, killing another so often have, at basis, a lack of respect being directed at another. When you value another as yourself it is different than when you don’t. We are each entitled to our opinions we may say but maybe that is not saying enough. We each are entitled to our opinions with respect for our differences and similarities. I might not agree with them but you have value to society. Even those we don’t agree with have some sort of value, either as lesson or as one to emulate.

We are spectrum-based lifeforms or we would all be the same and we are individuals as humans, human but not the same.

We call it basic decency. Treat others as you would like to be treated. Pretty simple. When we don’t hold ourselves with respect, with worthiness, how can we offer it to others?

We hopefully have come to realize our connectedness with all around us. Oneness is real. Social distancing has made everyone aware of our shared breath and how powerful we each are. We can make sick and even kill each other just be breathing on them. Our emotional maturity seems at play. Many people are unaware of how they affect other.

Respect can be as simple as passing another person on the street and you are not wearing a mask while they are. You are unaware of their internal conversation. They are thinking, “I don’t know you, you don’t know me, but I am feeling disrespected by your actions.”  You may be secure in your world view of reality, but their reality may allow of them to feel ill effects and have a different relationship to the virus. They have worry where you have denial or apathy running.

As Consciousness we are beyond all that. We appreciate the humanity present and realize it’s limits. And, we touch the place within that reaches out beyond our human definitions, those limitations that define us. We embrace that which can not be described, only felt as the essence of Life, the spirit within to be found in BEing.

Thank you for joining me here. Let’s do it again.

What's In Your Junk Drawer?

What's in your junk drawer? 

Do you have more than one? 

What does it say about you? 

How are you a junk drawer? 

These were some of our questions this last week in group. One of is getting her house ready to sell and she is clearing out, cleaning and repairing it. She was in awareness of how her junk drawer was filled with things that maybe were important in some realm of her life. And now, maybe were not. 

Consider that this is the end of the year and a great time for clearing out the old. There are things that you have collected that probably had no place but together with other stuff that also didn't have a place. Like to like. 

We were in awareness of how our lives, our homes all represent each of us. What is this drawer that is filled with odds and ends and tools, and maybe papers and what nots that have found their way inside this drawer? Stuff we don't want to lose but has no place may find its way into the junk drawer. 

And, if we expand outward of this pattern might we each be perhaps a junk drawer of patterns of information, a collection of stuff that we call Self? 

Junk is a demeaning value term. It can be used to indicate something of worth that is no longer. Or it still has worth but not in the same way as it did before. It a collective term as in "This is a piece of junk." Men may use this term differently than women. 

How does a spider web come into it? I wondered myself as I saw one show up while we were being present. 

The web is the spider's way to collect prey out of the air. They don't have great eyesight so they use their other senses. They use the vibrations of the prey in the web to locate them, decide if they are worth keeping and then wrap them in silk and they take to their nests to eat later. I can image that sometimes the web can catch other things than what the spider might eat. I wonder if spiders have junk drawers in their nests.  

The web is not solid. It allows for air flow but it defines that space and funnels the air. It shapes it as it passes through the webbing. The dew or rain that can collect along the webbing conditions the air. Every web is unique to  the spider. 

But back to the junk drawer in your house. 

You can sometimes feel helpless or overwhelmed with the odds and ends that every life encompasses. We can sometimes get rigid and eliminate what can seem chaotic quickly. Or we can find ourselves surrounded with stuff that we are not in the right mindset to deal with at the time. We can collect piles and piles, like the mail or the bills or both. 

When one is stressed, or ill or not paying attention, the little stuff can become big stuff in our minds and homes. If you are reference oriented you might be overtaken with information that never gets to the right place and your piles overflow taking up space that conditions the air flow. Yo might be collecting stuff from others. You many not have a place for storage of your information. Dust and dirt can settle in every crevice. Maybe now the junk drawer never really closes ;and/or instead of one you have many. One in every room perhaps.  

Now back to the junk drawer as your body/form and mind and Spirit. 

Nutrition, utilization, elimination is the body's design for optimum health. How well is your body functioning? This also applies for our mindsets and our relation to Spirit. How cluttered are you? What sort of odds and ends have you taken in and are not using effectively or timely but stored away for a better time to deal with? What are your memory banks filled with? 

What is in one mans junk drawer can be another man's treasure. Take this time to consider your willingness to look with new eyes at what you have tucked away in your junk drawer.   

(What can be one wife's junk drawer can become a retired husband's tool drawer).

Life in the Beyond/ Journeys Into Enlightenment


You know your junk drawer. The one filled with things and stuff that has no place but you keep. It is filled with odds and ends that are singular but still important. Things still wanted but now separated from the original to be dealt with at another time. It might be filled with tools and serve as a catchall for the things that make up a life that are more worthy as the whole than as the separate pieces. 

One mentioned she has several junk drawers. 

We shared about how we each perhaps are a junk drawer. That in one sense you could view yourself or others could view you as a junk drawer in consciousness. What are you filled with? Everything orgainized and has a place or the place that holds for seemingly unassociated materials and gives them home? 

What about the value you place on your "junk"? What is one mans junk is another mans treasure. What you might consider junk is your assignment of value and worth.

How do we define junk? It is interesting to take the list below and put the word drawer behind each one. 

old or discarded articles that are considered useless or of little value.
"the cellars are full of junk"

useless things
discarded things
odds and ends
bits and pieces
flotsam and jetsam
white elephants
odds and sods

What also came to into awareness was a spider web. How it is designed to catch prey to eat and how it works. Energy goes through the web, shaped by the web, and leaves behind a resonence.

JIE Episode 51Blog/ The Realms Of Beyond Are Filled With HELP

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet podcast

Releasing Tuesday December 15, 2020 

Episode 51 Blog The Realms Of Beyond Are Filled With HELP  

We are in the middle of another holiday season filled with virus.  Unfortunately, not our normal holiday season filled with our regular cold and flu viruses which are deadly enough. We are dealing with the Covid virus. How are you doing so far? 

My guest this episode Crystal Pomeroy brings with her an abundance of portals of different appreciations, traditions, myths and stories of both nourishment, renewal and HELP that we can access. Whether you are conscious today in your beliefs in angels or astrology, goddesses and gods and the power of Mother Earth does not matter. They live within your physical, mental, emotional, psychological, psychic, and spiritual DNA. For these are the realms of our ancestors and what served as the science at the time. 

It is what they followed and believed in long ago. Before the written, in times of wall and rock paintings, the oral still echoes and vibrates. These are the sounds that live in your bones and blood from perhaps just outside of your awareness. And what we might call our imaginations and interests are often our connections to references from this ancestral memory bank.

If, you are feeling stressed, go to this place. Go to the place within that takes you in beyond your isolated, separated sense of Self and your personal story/illusion and unfolds into the realms and worlds of the ancients be they angels, goddesses, and forest devas. Allow your issues, those concerns that seem so important and perhaps are and let these energy signatures come forward. Feel the release that comes with accepting their timeless awareness of how all is connected as One. In beyond your limits is where the magic happens.

No matter your race, creed or inclinations it is your beliefs that form your realities. It is your biases and projections and perspectives at play with you as Creator. This is the truth that we so resist at times and want to hide from or deny. And it is a work in progress.  

Life and Consciousness are spectrum oriented. All is allowed. There are no rights and wrongs and/or good and bad. These are judgments to be found in the human bias.

Suffering of all kinds can happen in our body/forms as well as joys and delights. Death is as real as birth. This is our dance of Spirit and Human playing out. What do we do with experiences that we may find ourselves involved in over the course of our physical lifetimes? Maybe HELP would be nice. In the Spirit realm or as Consciousness all is available. We can forget this when in form.

 Many people have issues with asking for HELP. We have made it about charity, or we are too weak or needy. Religious dogmas stir. It is not a matter of being less than thought it may feel that way.

Consider instead, HELP as an element of flow. It is a flow that supports and enriches the spirit in the humanity that enriches the human awareness. Our ability to focus through prayer or meditation are access points to this flow. It is a matter of alignment within Consciousness not so much subservience to an individual. Which depends on your frameworks of religion or spirituality.

What is your reality framework?  Accepting HELP is being open to the other energies that are empowered as Consciousness. They hold information that you might not have knowledge of personally but can access. The reality of HELP available as needed is useful. Not the HELP that is “not help but more work “kind of HELP.  Not being attached to how it shows up is useful. What happens when your angel shows up and doesn’t look like you expect it to? Knowing that information I can access is all around me in any realm that I might find myself dealing with is useful.

Humans can be highly creative when it comes to blocks and defenses in accepting HELP.  At heart, they often hold that they are less and not deserving. They have something to gain in being unaware of how they are resisting their own good fortune. 

And remember, the HELP flow is also not one directional. It is a two- way path. If you ask for help you are open to helping others because you know the value of HELP. To play it forward or pay it forward, you are comfortable with acting as angel.

Next time just be open. Access your core, place your issue in front of you and ask for the part of consciousness that could help. Trust, and notice what shows up in synchronicity. Get in the habit of being in the HELP flow and enjoying yourself.

Happy holidays!

It Still Is And Will Always BE About Shared Heart

 I like to go through at times and look at what I was writing about a year ago. How different, how similar, how still appropriate in what caught my attention then for now. 

This seemed timeless and appropriate to share again. 

Happy Holidays and Love to you and yours.

Blog/ Breathing Through Our Shared Heart

First there was All, One. All/One includes everything as Consciousness, One Mind, Infinite BEing. In the wonder of Life we know as human, we have developed an outward sense of Self as we are individually oriented in our human form. Still, in our internal and external core, we are Consciousness as Oneness, where the distinction of Self is loosened. 

The human heart is the first organ that develops into the body/form. It holds our connection to the All. One of the meanings of the word "heart" is core/essence. This is Consciousness that is in all of us. We share Heart through all our hearts as source.

In recognizing this incredible dynamic, how about we update our relation to All/One with a simple approach to being present. What would it be like to recognize, at our deepest levels this Shared Heart? Might we act different in our worlds if we lose our distinctions and sense of separateness that is prevalent these days? Might this be a way to unify again and bring wholeness to our world? Sometimes the simplest actions can have the biggest outcomes.

Try this and see what you notice.

Make some time and relax. Picture a Mobius Strip, that wonderful representation of Infinity and Love and Completeness. In my world, it is a dynamic symbol of Being. It is the one sided flat plane or line that turns on itself into a figure eight. At the crossover point is the heart, the center. For me, it represents Being in form and out of form, the crossover point either as birth or death. We circle around in being in form and out of form still complete just often unaware that we are in a pattern of being.

Now, just notice and let yourself feel how you are taking in oxygen into your body.

It comes in and in the coordination of body/form we align as our breath with the beat of our heart.

Feel your breath go into the heart like the Mobius Strip, through your heart and circle around behind you and then come back through your heart moving forward and outward. 

Let yourself feel the movement as it circles around and comes in again and goes out the back of your heart and circles back around and goes back into your heart and goes forward and outward, circles around and comes back in.

Now bring the awareness that you are softening and dissolving your outside form and becoming only an energy state at the same time.


Feel all as One again. 

Feel through our Shared Heart. 

Feel the shift as you come into a new awareness of your essential Essence as One through Heart Centered Awareness.
