Wendy’s Coffeehouse Art at H&R Block Center through Dec. 2011

~ You are Magic. You are Divine. With you, ALL things are possible. ~

Thank you to The Roasterie for hosting my art in September and October! Time flew – I removed that display today. The next venue is already up. Friday, we got everything up at the H&R Block Center in Downtown Kansas City.

Such a cool place. The space is bright and full of light. I chose a mix of pieces. My colorful metal frames were at The Roasterie. These works are not all framed. It’s a bit more informal. I was worried my colors might be too bold or the prints too small but the area works so well .. it gives them room to sing.

Am I gushing? Apparently. Oh well, it sure is nice to have such a great spot to share my colors. I haven’t really had an idea of where my art could go. I just know it is so much fun to create it. I could not have asked for a better way to say “Goodbye” to 2011 and “Hello” to 2012. And … Thank you – to everyone who is helping/inspiring me in bringing it out… ūüôā

… I have so much more I haven’t had time to finish!! 2012 will be a great time to work on adding to the mix.

Reviews revisited – the work in progress

 In cleaning up the clutter on my computer, I found a review of Talking to Nightlights that I had saved and filed away. Suggestions on how I could better present the topic were late in coming but appreciated none the less.

There is a reason I misfiled this review. To sum up:¬†the reviewer – without mincing words – suggested I cut some of the personal process and tidy up the writing…¬†make it a bit leaner.

I did some mincing on¬†those¬†recommended specifics in¬†this version. ūüôā

So – if the book goes on in another form –¬†I can still do that. No doubt it would improve the selling points and make the message more commercially appealing.¬†I have yet to do that. My experiences and the people who have connected to me as a result of what I shared¬†have given me even more avenues of conscious awakening to explore and assurance that there are others who know exactly what I have undergone as they are having similar experiences¬†in the rocking boat.

So it was what I needed to do at the time. The book is about sharing the very first transitioning steps of a profound, life-changing spiritual metamorphosis.    

As it stands now when you read it, it might be helpful to know¬†that¬†I chose to include some of the personal process in my book because I knew there would be others like me who had not been exposed nor prepared for this kind of metaphysical – supernatural – paranormal event and might appreciate hearing how it can just start…for absolutely no reason… and then shake up the very core of your life foundation.

It would have been better I suppose to have cut the excess description¬†and make a tidier story but this metaphysical, spiritual awakening stuff doesn’t happen neat and tidy. When it happens, the world shifts, reality cracks and¬†you undergo an intense reassessment of¬†consicous awareness … and your mental state.

You begin to¬†reexamine superficial appearances and¬†question all that you encounter.¬†I could not imagine how to make sense of my story¬†without including the process of unfoldment to demonstrate that – no matter who you are or how tight you think your handle is on the “real” world, reality is relative. You will make mistakes and muddle through a few things before you get your bearings. ¬†

Awakening to a world where multidimensional awareness is a part of the daily routine takes a bit of getting used to. I was left with the knowing that¬†the world is multi-layered energetic arena and a much more entertaining place if we can allow for that – even if we can’t comprehend it.¬†We truly exist in a space – in and out of time – and when we are granted¬†more exposure to some of the shamanic¬†realms – wonder unfolds¬†exponentially.

Now here’s the review¬†– mince excised – for your dancing and dining pleasure.¬†

***Garrett, Wendy – A psychic channels messages from a spirit through a blinking nightlight. ***

[Point of¬†fact. I have had to make peace with the term¬†“psychic” because I had not considered myself in that light. EVER. I go so far as to claim channeling, intuitive and shamanic abilities with a mystical approach. I thought I was telling the story as a Broadcast Journalist who went AWOL and found God… Might be why the reviewer needed to offer a redirect.

I hate to admit being annoyed at being called a psychic but I thought Рright out of the chute  Рthe label misdirected the intent and the direction of the book.]  

TALKING TO NIGHTLIGHTS, Channeling Energy and Awakening for Spiritual Insight
iUniverse (132 pp.) $13.95 paperback
April 25, 2007, ISBN: 978-0-595-41919-7:

In 1997, Garrett, who’d had psychic experiences since childhood but kept them at arms length to maintain a normal daily routine, began the channeling adventure of her life when she discovered that a blinking nightlight conveyed messages from a spirit, whom she called the Energy.

Informed that the Energy watches over and influences humans‚ÄĒGarrett worked with her own spirit guides to learn how to better connect to the Energy and as a result, soon understood the Energy well enough to sit at her computer and allow its messages to flow through her fingers.

A spirit thousands of years old, the Energy spoke of multiple universes and imparted information to help Garrett discover more about her spiritual self and her life connections to those around her. A spiritual Deep Throat, perhaps the most revealing bit the Energy divulged is what Garrett could expect after her death, which she will experience many times before becoming a spirit like the Energy.

Several conversations were developed into discussions about science and metaphysics.
For these, the Energy received help from other spirits, whom Garrett had channeled before. To better understand this information, Garrett studied books by respected physicists like Stephen Hawking, and those titles are included in a recommended reading list.

Eventually, the Energy told the author, she would move on to a higher plane of pure energy and take on a physical form again. The spirit also transmitted positive messages about love and a touching message about the death of the author’s cat.

[True confession… this is where a lot of “helpful suggestions”… were…um…excised. I ended up with one good sentence.¬†The words in bold are original. ūüôā ]

Positive messages about a unique experience of spiritual awakening. 

And so it is.

Amazon Review of Talking to Nightlights

Illumination – One hand clapping often leads to another.

Friday was a wonderful reminder that litte surprises can be worth the wait. First, the finished copy of Guy Finley’s Letting Go a little bit at a time arrived. And – on his website is my endorsement…it made the cut…at the very, very end of the list…and right before the link to read the book.

Then – because I called myself the Author of Talking to Nightlights – I checked out the book on Amazon… and what a shock to see a review… thank you for little surprises.

Talking to Nightlights, January 26, 2009 – Amazon Review – By R. McGovern (Maine USA) –

Talking to Nightlights: Channeling Energy and Awakening for Spiritual Insight – I highly recommend this book! It is excellent. Our paranormal group liked it so much some of our team members have bought a copy for themselves. A great read!

If I were an Amazon Customer I could reply – Hello and Thank you for a wonderful review. The events I talk about in the book changed my life path in 1997. My nightlights and my spiritual connection with the Energy has become even stronger. It is present wherever I am. And it can also be present with you (we are one and all connected in spirit consciousness).

I have posted videos on Youtube to give you an idea of how it works for me. The camera is set on auto and it phases out due to the presence of the energy. It is more obvious in the first video (08). In the current video (09), the Energy has managed to accomodate that dynamic and not interfere in the process.

Best wishes to you and your connections with Light!

Love, light and laughs,
wendy and the Energy…and the nightlights.

Musical Ghost at the Stanley Hotel

Believe and you will see.

I have had earlier opportunities to check out the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado and opted against it. Since I believe in and experience ghosts on a regular basis, I really didn’t want or need to engage more on my vacation.

Ghosts and spirit energies are real for me, so I try not to intentionally go where I have not been invited. This time, for whatever reason, I had an invite; my guides suggested a visit.

As such, it was up to me to make it happen, not knowing exactly what to expect or why I had to see the Stanley Hotel.

It may be that, with the constant presence of my nightlight energy, I don’t question or doubt the existence of other awarenesses and life forms. Ghosts are a lot like people. They each have a certain role they are playing or duty they have agreed perform.

Some appreciate a bit of interest and polite acknowledgement but for the most part, they don’t want to hang out to shoot the breeze…or jump through a circus of hoops to prove they exist. They exist without proof or any obligation to provide such.

When and if a ghost needs my help, they find me and that works perfectly well for me. Why the Stanley and why this time? Turns out it was the presence of a new (very much alive and breathing) tour guide who had just enough time and experience on the job to corroborate all of my impressions – impressions that started bubbling in full force from the minute we drove onto the property.

My guides told me – “We have a surprise for you.” Ever the jovial companions, I have learned any reluctance or trepidation on my part only serves to amuse them even more, so I just go and see what they’ve arranged to help with my ongoing lessons in enlightenment.

I obliged them with a trip to the Stanley Hotel to meet a spirit they referred to as “The Singing Ghost.” The music began the minute I entered the grounds (The guides were laughing and kept asking, “Can you hear us singing.”). I walked – without knowing – directly to the music room, paused to admire the piano in the lobby area outside and felt drawn to the souvenir shop where I found someone I could question who answered a lot of my questions and then directed me to (as it turns out) the person I was actually sent there to see.

When I told that person I had a tremendous connection with someone who was incredibly musical and I heard and felt as if the ghost was humming, we were off. Our story is still unfolding.

For me, even though I have been doing this kind of thing overtly for over a decade, it is still embarrassing to ask the kind of questions I have to ask to corroborate my ghost impressions – but I can’t get any information if I don’t – so I just allow that I will find the right person and provide amusement for those who don’t get it.

On this trip – I found the ghost, the right person, and a reason to go back. Once again, my guides managed to make the road to “enlightenment” fun.

Oh, and for an added incentive to do my homework, I woke up with a huge knot in my back the day of the trip. It made absolutely no sense. (However, I did suspect a connection.) The guides referred to it as the “monkey on your back.” As soon as I made my engagement at the Stanley, the monkey went away.

The purpose of the trip:

My guides sent me to a place where I had no prior knowledge or sense of familiarity to connect my dots and remember what I “know” is always with me; I had to affirm me in yet another way.

No matter how amazing and wonderful my encounters and abilities, I am still exploring, discovering and accepting who I am and what I do.

Never a dull moment in this world of light.

I also took my nightlight on this trip. More on that later…

Love U

A Beloved Teacher

People always joke that “dog” spells “god” backwards. They should consider that it might be the higher power coming down to see just how well they do, what kind of people they are. The animals are right here, right in front of us. And how we treat these companions is a test.Linda Blair

When you are truly ready to do your soul work, you will fall hopelessly in love and deal with every single hardship that engagement creates by becoming a better person – in such a way that not one soul is harmed, blamed or credited for anything that might happen to befall you, good, bad or indifferent.

More importantly, in learning the true nature of love, you will never fall out of love again. Love is not a state one can fall in or out of. LOVE is a STATE Of BEING. And that is the fine print.

The Energy of Light – The Nightlight

My nightlight experience is hard to explain because there is no frame of reference for it. I can only tell you so much – the rest of it is what I experience and that is beyond words. However, I opted to share a demo video that can give you a quick peek at what I experience in my environment and in working with the energy that I feel in the presence of the nightlights and other lights that I come into contact with.

We are energy. Spirit is energy. All is energy. There is a way we can connect that allows us to “see” a link. That happens to be through electricity. So, for me, it has been (since 1997) through nightlights. It looks totally innocuous and yet the action is more than what it seems. It is a way for Spirit to represent itself in manifest form.

We have a long way to go in understanding our connectivity but we are at a point in our evolution where we are seeing these kinds of anomalies as opportunities rather than flukes or frightening encounters. We are ready to start doing the math.  And I am focused on continuing to learn how we connect with All That Is Рin the light.

I have posted two videos on You Tube. It is much easier to show the nightlight action than to tell it. 

One has a dark background and the other is light. The dark background demonstrates how the energy shifts in my presence because it causes the camera to shift focus even though I am doing nothing to it and the battery is fully charged. That is just a normal part of the process. I believe it is a time of day that there is a higher charge between the two of us and that creates a bit of interference. Bottom line: You can still see the light. 




Thank you for stopping in. I hope you find something of interest on this site. Best to you Рwherever you have come from and wherever you are going.

We are Light and All is One. And while we are here… there is work to be done ~



When you need a defense, trust the light is always on; and it is.
