Podcast – Episode 2: Consciousness Taking Form with Dr. Mmatheo Motsisi

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.

Feel the difference in the moment that can last a lifetime. Listen to episodes on Spreaker, subscribe to the podcast on iTunes or visit the YouTube archive for Journeys Into Enlightenment with Janet Barrett. For notes about earlier episodes, please see

Essence: Episode NotesHeart with a tree of life inside

Consciousness is in everything. In the human form it manifests as a living sentient being with the ability to hold awareness of both non-physical and physical worlds as real. We will share about how body, mind and spirit area Western reference and that Indigenous cultures have no such distinctions. All materials in existence shares the same living spirit and soul. What it is like to realign our interior spaces when we hold this as our forgotten truths reawakened?We are Spirit experiencing life through the human form. Consciousness is our collective term and Soul is us the individual. Self is the individual embodiment of Soul.

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

Sometimes language can get in our way of understanding. How a word is being used, the range of meanings that a word holds, different inflections, and how we hear it to our ear all come into play. As energy expressions they are powerful in generating states of awareness. Here are some featured words in this episode that may be used in new contexts.


Energies or essences of a super natural perspective. Consciousness in a different reference.


An informational state which has no form but holds awareness. Individually It interacts with Consciousness as Soul and the collections of patterns that make up our sense of Self. Soul is not a word that science uses. But it really is the identifying of the non-physical essence individual to each of us. It is the essence that is having its’ adventure in human form as Self.

“Whatever you reject has power over you.”

“Taking the label off a moment or feeling releases the grip of Self and your essence can then chime in with your inner truth.”

Mmatheo’s words of wisdom from her Book: Odyssey of a Healer. Find it on Amazon at Odyssey of a Healer

The Ancient Ones have spoken to humanity in many unsaid ways in attempt to awaken us and they continue to speak. The question is: Are we ready to receive their unfathomable message? Maybe we need to do a deep soul-searching to decipher their words of wisdom. Baba CredoMutwa affirms:

“A man who lives with his soul and who lets his soul, rather than his brain, guide him, is better equipped to face the mysterious and supernatural things, because the soul understands these things while they bewilder the brain. The brain drags them into the quicksand of materialism” (p. 23).
We are spiritual beings having an experience in a physical body, and not the other way around. It is an illusion to believe that the soul needs the physical body for its existence. The soul flows from the Supreme Source, it only chooses an appropriate matrix for its expression in form and fulfilment of its mission as it continues on its upward journey of progression. The body is just a chariot which the soul rides. Its senses, namely, sight, sound, smell, taste are wild horses that pull the body in many different directions. Identifying only with these senses and the perishable body is self-limiting and results in the loss of authenticity that defines us as a multi-dimensional being (pp. 27-28).
