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.

How do we take in information and what do we do with it? Human awareness is organized about being able to judge its experiences to form and define oneself in a lifetime. Joining Janet is Jill Falk, visual fine artist, massage therapist and quantum explorer. What is Reality when we are not in judgment of the phenomena in BEing in form? How does one hold oneself in appreciation and gratitude of the body and its wonderful sensory design?
Jill Falk is a visual fine artist, massage therapist and quantum explorer. Jill wants to live in a world where creative genius is the norm and high fives are handed out freely in the streets. She seeks to express through artistic means the subtle and intricate layers that make up the fabric of the Universe. She often thinks in pictures with subtitles at the bottom. Her hobbies include (but are not limited to), fiddling, surfing, lucid dreaming, and the quantum sciences. As an inner-galactic, quantum source*er^ess (sic), she is sought after throughout the greater cosmos as an experiential scientist and seer.
Her website is www.jillfalkart.com Her art is of interactive pieces between a changing light source and your eye and mind. She asks us to see the color in all the shade of gray matter that makes up Life.
Phenomena are bits of information. Phenomenon is a fact or situation that is observed to exist or happen, especially one whose cause or explanation is in question. Being open to the wonder of experiencing phenomena is not judging that our senses are telling us information. We are evaluating the information they are telling us.
Phenomena are stuff. Stuff is the non-attachment to a label. Stuff happens and our emotions don’t get engaged in the same way.
Story is an account of imaginary or real people and events told for entertainment. Story can be an account of past events in someone's life or in the evolution of something.
Our lives each follow an individual storyline called “I.” We follow those before us and identify with their story as clan, family, community. We express our evolution in terms of stories and myths and drawings. Our identities and facts of the past are all subject the biases of current emotions, intentions, memories, time and environment.
Lyrics by Leslie Bricusse, Music by Anthony Newley
From the film Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
Come with me
And you'll be
In a world of
Take a look
And you'll see
Into your imagination.
With a spin
The world of my creation.
What we'll see
If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it.
Anything you want to, do it
Want to change the world?
There is no
Life I know
To compare with
You'll be free
If you truly wish to be.
Here is a portion of The Stars, written by Elliot Weinberger
The stars: what are they?
They are chunks of ice reflecting the sun;
they are lights afloat on the waters beyond the transparent dome;
they are nails nailed to the sky;
they are holes in the great curtain between us and the sea of light;
they are holes in the hard shell that protects us from the inferno beyond
they are the daughters of the sun;
they are the messengers of the gods;
they are shaped like wheels and are condensations of air with flames
roaring through the spaces between the spokes;
they sit in little chairs;
they are strewn across the sky;
they run errands for lovers…
“In every job that must be done, there is an element of fun. You find the fun and - SNAP - the job’s a game.”
“Amazement + Gratitude + Openness + Appreciation = an irresistible field of energy.”
“ I have a friend who's an artist and has sometimes taken a view which I don't agree with very well. He'll hold up a flower and say "look how beautiful it is," and I'll agree. Then he says "I as an artist can see how beautiful this is but you as a scientist take this all apart and it becomes a dull thing," and I think that he's kind of nutty. First of all, the beauty that he sees is available to other people and to me too, I believe. Although I may not be quite as refined aesthetically as he is ... I can appreciate the beauty of a flower. At the same time, I see much more about the flower than he sees. I could imagine the cells in there, the complicated actions inside, which also have a beauty. I mean it's not just beauty at this dimension, at one centimeter; there's also beauty at smaller dimensions, the inner structure, also the processes. The fact that the colors in the flower evolved in order to attract insects to pollinate it is interesting; it means that insects can see the color. It adds a question: does this aesthetic sense also exist in the lower forms? Why is it aesthetic? All kinds of interesting questions which the science knowledge only adds to the excitement, the mystery and the awe of a flower. It only adds. I don't understand how it subtracts.”

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.
