Podcast Episode 9: Consciousness and the Holes in Our Wholeness with Dr. Mmatheo Motsisi, Part 1

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.

Essence: Episode NotesHeart with a tree of life inside

What role does illness play in our expression as a spiritual creature in a human form? Each of our bodies represents wholeness in Being. Illness can take form and register in our mental, emotional and or physical realms creating a sense of holes in our wholeness. Dr. Mmatheo Motsisi holds degrees in Indigenous and Chinese healing and appreciates Western medicine with its different references. She joins Janet in conversation about our Spirit expressing in the human form and how to listen to what is being said through our bodies.

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

Our words this episode are Consciousness, Spirit, Essence, Soul depending on the referencing present. Mmatheo and I use different frameworks in our conversation. Both will hold value for you whatever your framework is.

Our field awareness of Being is spectrum oriented, free and appreciative of the biases of religion and beliefs, language and form.

Ageless: Free Consciousness CookiesCookies – Food for thought

“To awaken is to be mindful of each drop of water that is released by the Sea, changes into rain and snow. And as it conceals itself in the deep recesses of the Earth, it eventually overflows and returns to the sea. Not in a straight line, but on a path of least resistance. When it finally reaches its destination, sweet and purified by the journey, it unites with the source. They are one again. Not one of the many, but One of the Same Self.”

“Wholeness is not achieved by cutting off a portion of one’s being, but by integration of the contraries.”

Carl Jung

“The wholeness of a being is not limited to its form and senses. It is not just what it thinks and feels it is. Wholeness includes what one holds out of awareness.”
