Hal Manogue will be on We Are One in Spirit Podcast Today!

What Is Consciousness?

We have been taught that the word consciousness means the state of being awake and aware of one's surroundings. The dictionary also describes consciousness as the awareness or perception of something by a person. Both of these meanings are credible descriptions of our objective consciousness, but as most of us know we are much more than the objectivity we express. Consciousness is not limited by our description of it. In fact, nothing limits consciousness as it continues to expand in awareness. The billion dollar question is how does consciousness act in its subjective state and how does that action affect our physical being? The answer may surprise some of you. Others may discount the answer based on individual beliefs. No matter what your belief, the fact that all physical objects exist in a subjective region of consciousness before they become objective is a metaphysical and a recent scientific truth.

On June 27th, Author Hal Manogue will be joining Yvonne Perry on We Are One in Spirit to discuss his newly released book, The Butterfly Ball.

The Butterfly Ball introduces readers to the world of Doris Baker Hartley and her family. She was confused by her daddy’s mental war injuries, and manipulated by her mother’s religion. That was not unusual back in the late 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s, but the personal attacked she experienced by a member of her family was unusual in several respects. She handled the life-altering experience by adjusting her belief structure. Doris kept the attack a secret, and that choice expanded her awareness of the natural world that existed around her.

The actual assault took place when she was 15. The years before the attack she learned to live with the family’s religious obsession, but after the incident her perception of religion was dramatically altered. Doris became an avid Butterfly watcher. Doris spent hours sitting in her backyard talking to these amazing winged creatures that went where they pleased and pleased wherever they went. Her connection to these majestic insect messengers was deep. She felt their freedom, and she wanted to experience that feeling all the time. Doris expanded her perception of reality. She accepted responsibility for creating that expansion.

The Butterfly Ball is available in all bookstores. For a signed copy visit: or
