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

We will be talking of balance and harmony this episode. There are several definitions for each, so let me highlight this for balance: balance is a point between two opposite forces that is desirable over purely one state or the other. With harmony, one definition states that it is an order or congruity of parts to their whole or to one another. Balance and harmony are two sides of the same coin. Both are about our relationship to who we are and what is most important to us. Balance is about our inner relationship to who we are and what matters. On the other hand, harmony is about the outer relationship between who we are and the world around us.

Catch up with Conscious Conversations with Joan and Janet

What does it mean to live consciously with energetic awareness in daily life? We can access the warmth, acceptance and non-judgment that is universal consciousness. We are all part of that spectrum, as individuals interconnected. There is no time, no space. Accessing the state of potential can help us to allow for new choices in our habitual feelings, behaviors and responses. Joan and I are subtle energy empaths in the field of consciousness. Join us as we talk about our individual and collective evolutions on Conscious Conversations with Joan and Janet. Explore what it would be like to change your rules and realities.
