Podcast: Episode 26: Consciousness and Reeling in Our Emotions with Carol Oliva 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

Our language is again of the Heart. It is feeling. It is allowing yourself to feel something and valuing it as information. It is welcoming connection as that is what emotions do. They color our sense of connection. They are powerful internal inspirations and story and myth generators of what we call reality.

Roots: Associated WorksTree roots

Dr. Bernie Siegel is an excellent influence to be aware of. He is a frequent guest on The Matter of the Heart podcast. Carol recommends his book “365 Prescriptions for the Soul: Daily Messages of Inspiration, Hope, and Love.”

Carol’s book, “The Awakening of Friendship” offers many sources and references for sharing connection with others.
