Podcast Episode 15: The Awakening of Friendship with Carol Olivia Adams

Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Podcast Logo

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.

Language: Featured Words in ContextTree of life with heart on trunk

Two tones of Heart are emotional terrain and your core of Spirit and Consciousness. Friend is a person one knows and you share a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations. Facebook “friends” are not always true friends, only acquaintances.

“Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It’s not something you learn in school. But if you haven’t learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven’t learned anything.“

Muhammad Ali

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together… there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart… I'll always be with you.“

Carol accesses many different references in her expression in Being as artist, intuitive counselor and radio host. Many were mentioned.

I love her favorite motto about life:

“The human heart feels things the eyes cannot see and knows what the mind cannot understand.“
Robert Vallett

In support of Appreciation and Gratitude which are foundation to enjoying Life.
Count your blessings instead of your crosses;
Count your gains instead of your losses.
Count your joys instead of your woes;
Count your friends instead of your foes.
Count your smiles instead of your tears;
Count your courage instead of your fears.
Count your full years instead of your lean;
Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.
Count your health instead of your wealth;
Count on God instead of yourself.
