Podcast: Episode 28: How We Are Creating Our Realities These Days with Jim Johnson Ph.D.

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

Reality is the state or quality of having existence or substance. Consciousness is a reality. We are holographic projections of a state of information. Flash on the movies like “What the Bleep Do You Know?,” “Inception,” and “Interstellar.” All share in explaining how what you think is real is just a state of projection. It is what reality is. We think it, so it is.

We share realities as common ground. And, at the same time we are also in our individual realities as Soul and Self. Each have their own sense of space and time and language that can challenge our mind. You may also register changing realities through color or numbers or sounds. All are part of the wonder of the human mechanism at play.

Following the Bouncing Ball: Getting caught up or distracted in the words? Jim suggests following the bouncing ball approach of being present in shared awareness. Picture a bouncing ball over the words as in a song melody as it represents the language of your reality. You can feel connection with another person or living creature in the state being expressed as the ball is a symbol of the words being expressed and relaxes mind. It is not human language that is connecting you but the rhythm of your hearts and the shared state present.

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
