Podcast: Episode 19 The Sounds That Enliven Us with Bill Protzmann

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.

Essence: Episode 19 NotesHeart with a tree of life inside

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.

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

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.“

There are some great quotes at

“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.“
Pythagoras (569-475 BC)
“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.“
Hazrat Inyat Khan (1882-1927)
“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.“
William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
“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.“
Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
“From the heart, may it again go to the heart.“
Ludwig Van Beethoven (1770-1827)
