This podcast series focuses on the intersection of Consciousness and Self. This is our “Journey into Enlightenment.” At the core of human reality is Consciousness. Humans are self-defining creatures. We develop rule sets and stories that generate our experiences of reality. Consciousness is the state of awareness in each of us where our self-defined realities are only one of the many options in potential that could be expressed.
Each episode you will join Janet and her friends to gather in this core in Heart Centered Awareness. You will feel this state where time and space are malleable, potential is active and change in our day to day experiences can be felt in the moment. You will witness this sharing in the expansive variety of expressions of Consciousness, and as form and language in our physical and non-physical worlds. Experience new definitions in Self and join in the collective community we call Consciousness.

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.
In addition to being a successful IT entrepreneur, Bill Protzmann holds magna cum laude degrees in piano performance and creative writing. He has performed in concert for many years with a focus on bringing music to audiences in non-traditional ways.
In 2011, Bill launched Music Care, Inc, a for-profit corporation dedicated to teaching practical ways music can be used to impact human physiology. His work was recognized by the National Council for Behavioral Health with an Award of Excellence in 2014‐the behavioral health equivalent of winning an Oscar. For his foundational work establishing music as self-care he also received an Inspiring Hope Award of Excellence.
His volunteer work has included board positions with Guitars for Vets and the San Diego Veterans Coalition. He has been instrumental in connecting thousands of military service members and veterans with honor tickets to the largest healing music organization in his town: The San Diego Symphony.
You will find his first book at Amazon.com “More Than Human-The Value of Cultivating the Human Spirit in Your Organization.“
He has written articles that have been published and appeared on Fox News, Your Tango, The Good Men Project, Psychology Today, and on his website: PracticalHeartSkills.com.
You can contact Bill directly at Bill@MusicCare.net.
If you are ready to learn to use music as self-care, you can take the guided, gamified, and fully mentored online course at Quest.MusicCare.net.
Our language is vibratory. Our bodies are vibrational in nature. The dance of our photons of light and bio-mass and information express in our body as movement. It is our being in physical forms as resonators, generators, interpreters of life as ranges of these vibrational rhythms.
“There are two aspects of life: the first is that man is tuned by his surroundings, and the second is that man can tune himself in spite of his surroundings.“ Hazrat Inayat Khan, “The Mysticism of Sound and Music: The Sufi Teaching of Hazrat Inayat Khan.“
For a complete description of Bill’s work and a list of those who have helped shape his work please use his link https://quest.musiccare.net.
His short list includes: Stoic philosophers such as Epictetus, His Holiness the 13th Dali Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, poets David Whyte and Rainer Maria Rilke, psychologist Robert A. Johnson, mythologist Joseph Campbell, Christian mystics John O'Donohue and Brother David Steindl-Rast, philosopher Parker J Palmer, and visionary thinker and life-skills practitioner Michael A. Singer.
Bill enjoys music of all genres, nationalities, and styles. He likes kayaking, windsurfing, mountain biking, swimming, yoga and the breath, and is fascinated by the connections to the brain and mind in scientific explorations of consciousness and emotion, quantum gravity, neuroplasticity, and modalities like EFT/TFT, and TRE (Trauma Release Exercise).
There are some great quotes at delamora.life.com.
“Each celestial body, in fact each and every atom, produces a particular sound on account of its movement, its rhythm or vibration. All these sounds and vibrations form a universal harmony in which each element, while having its own function and character, contributes to the whole.“
“What makes us feel drawn to music is that our whole being is music: our mind and body, the nature in which we live, the nature which has made us, all that is beneath and around us, it is all music.“
“Music can minister to minds diseased, pluck from the memory a rooted sorrow, raze out the written troubles of the brain, and with its sweet oblivious antidote, cleanse the full bosom of all perilous stuff that weighs upon the heart.“
“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.“
“From the heart, may it again go to the heart.“

How powerful is Sound and Music to our souls and bodies? They enrich our lives and can heal us as a result. They will move us. We are hard wired to rhythm and sound at our deepest physical levels. We feel the sounds and music. Our bodies are big resonators, generators, receivers and interpreters

What does it mean to live consciously with energetic awareness in daily life? We can access the warmth, acceptance and non-judgment that is universal consciousness. We are all part of that spectrum, as individuals interconnected. There is no time, no space. Accessing the state of potential can help us to allow for new choices in our habitual feelings, behaviors and responses. Joan and I are subtle energy empaths in the field of consciousness. Join us as we talk about our individual and collective evolutions on Conscious Conversations with Joan and Janet. Explore what it would be like to change your rules and realities.
