Podcast: Episode 36: The Opportunities To BE Found In A Virus with Joanne Lefebvre Connolly, DVM

Essence: Episode NotesHeart with a tree of life inside

While the world of humans comes to a remarkable halt, this is our perfect quantum leap in Consciousness. Joining Janet is Joanne Lefebvre Connolly, DVM. Author of the upcoming book “Animal Teachings 2 from Hayley's Angels Methods.” Listen as they explore what lessons our fellow animals have to offer us, the human animal, in how we relate in new ways to ourselves, our communities and this planet.

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

House is a building in which someone lives. A home refers either to a building or to any location that a person thinks of as the place where she lives and that belongs to her. For our reference it is our inner home. Our houses reflect our inner sense of home. Home is always an inward journey. Earth is the home planet for humans and other animal life forms. It is where our Essence lives in connection to all, open to sharing Love and feeling valued, the true definition of Home.

Roots: Associated WorksTree roots

Dr. Joanne finds her influences in her connection to Mother Earth and her inhabitants. She suggests:

Lie down upon the earth and just be. Breathe in and out and feel the earth that you are part of.

Walk in water. Offer no resistance.

Visit a no kill shelter for animals and be present.

Visit and be present at a wild animal park.

Support wildlife sanctuaries.

Let yourself be moved. Open yourself to the connection that is already there waiting to be recognized.

Focus: Meditations by Tom BarrettYin Yang symbol representing the balance meditation brings

Basic to appreciating the treasure to be found in Life and our fellow animals and this earth is appreciating what we consider Mother Earth to be. All the bounty of life we find on this planet is as unique as this planet is. We are part of this. We may find ourselves free to be outside our houses now, but we may not be in the rhythm or in connection with all that is being provided as we enter Nature again. This is the perfect time to give thanks.

Our Mother Nature” is featured from the meditation archive at Interlude: An Internet Retreat. It includes the following:

    Mother Nature, you gave me life, and I thank you.
    You formed the earth from the swirling dust of the cosmos, and I thank you.
    You filled the low places with water and gave a home to the fishes, and I thank you.
    You filled the seas and the land with plants that give us air to breathe and food to eat, and I thank you.
    You placed animals among the plants. They are our brothers and sisters. For them I thank you.
    You placed my ancestors among the animals and the plants and they lived off the land. For their lives and their dreams, I thank you.
    You have given us wood for our houses, stone for our roads, fiber for our clothing. You gave us minerals to build our machines. You gave us the means to live in comfort, and with the tools you have given we have built walls that separate us from you.
    I thank you for the comfort in which I live.
    I thank you for the tools of civilization.
    Grant that I may use them wisely.
    Grant that I may live in your bounty.
    Grant that I may remember that I am your child and that my life depends on you.
    May I and those that come after me treasure you and care for you.
    May your spirit fill me and guide my ways.
    Let me move beyond all walls so that I may be one with you.

We are all part of that spectrum, as individuals interconnected. There is no time, no space.
