Mystic Musings: In The Present Moment, There Is No Story

In The Present Moment There, Is No Story ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

I often feel like I’m the keeper of family secrets. Things I’ve seen or heard, witnessed that others haven’t. If I’m the only one who knows or remembers, does it make it real?

A few years ago I helped someone die at home. After helping my mother pass, I kinda sorta knew what I was stepping into, or so I thought.

It was a completely different experience.

Now, deaths are like births, everyone creates their own unique circumstances,whether they’re exiting the body or entering it. People gather for the event, that is they come into their lives (or come into their lives again) wittingly or unwittingly.

My mother’s passing was peaceful. I lay in bed beside her for 21 days giving her sips of water, as she birthed herself back to Spirit.

The other experience was chaotic. Their spouse was angry at them for dying, and enraged it was happening at home. They refused to give them pain medication, and in the last few days hospice assigned me to do so otherwise the person would have had to go to hospital.

Yet we were able to arrange family to Skype, or to show up, in those last few days, before they finally were able to leave.

Things got even more intense after their passing. And after I came home, I started having post traumatic stress symptoms – “startle” reflexes that took a long time to subside. And I would awake in the middle of the night replaying the story of the wrongs that had been done, over and over again, how I have scanned documents as proof, etc.

Now, that was over four years ago, but last week the startle reflexes came up out of the blue. I wondered if it had something to do with the holiday (the veils are thinner between worlds at such times).

And recently I had an email that entered me into that world again. And I had a really horrible sleepless night revisiting the experiences of the past.

Now I have no idea what the story has been on that side of things since all that happened. But I do sense that people are in still great grief, and that is sad.

It’s my story about the past that can still cause me pain. What injustices were done, what inconsiderations, what people did or did not do. But none of that is real now.

In the present moment there is no story. There is nothing going on but what is happening now. Now, I’m in my living room as I’m typing this. The clock is ticking. There is trickling water from the fish tank. Outside my windows there are hundred foot tall Douglas firs standing as silent guardians.

In the present moment I am restored to Consciousness. There is clarity, there is light, there is simplicity. It is an enormous feeling of Presence. I breathe, and release, knowing that it’s a benevolent Universe and all is very, very well.

Mystic Musings: When Getting Back On Track Reveals A Completely Different Path

F 0 Comments

When Getting Back On Track Reveals A Completely Different Path ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

It’s been a hard couple of years. Something happened that knocked me off course. When I look back, I can recognize certain signs. In January of last year, I started having reactions to the house I was living in, I felt it had turned toxic on me. And since I work from home, there was no escaping it.

And then my dog started having seizures. We had just bought tickets to visit my son who was in school in Germany and I asked the vet whether we should go. She said the seizures were unpredictable and the tests didn’t indicate anything serious that we could do anything about.  And she said she was a believer in going ahead and living your life.

So we went, and when we got back, our dog was limping. It turned out that what we thought was arthritis and a benign fatty lump on her leg, was actually cancer. So we had a horrific four weeks while she died on our kitchen floor.

And right after that our landlord gave us notice. Which was fine with me, since the house was toxic. (We later found mold throughout the basement, and evidence it had been painted over prior to our moving there in 2013). But we didn’t find a new place to live until 7 days before we had to be out of there.

But that was last year. And this year has been fairly calm. The new place is wonderful, clean, and spacious. But something is still off course.

And when I look back, it had started before all the things with the previous house. Although all those things occurred because it was definitely time for us to move.

So what was it? I’ve been telling people I’ve been going through a phase of feeling like an atheist. I thought it was simply because I’d shifted to a new level of Consciousness, where the personality had gone out of it. But it really was a spiritual void. What happened?

I’d completely forgotten being side swiped by the election at the end of 2016.

Someone had texted me that night saying, “what parallel universe are we in”???

I’m pretty good in a crisis so I took the event in my stride, but it did really feel like we were all shoved into an alternate reality.

And, honestly, it caused me to doubt my work. Because I teach people that they can create their reality. And who the fuck wants to own creating this bullshit we’ve been going through since 2016??

So then I shifted into this space of just responding to is whatever showing up. Going ahead and living my life. None of this visualization, none of this law of attraction, just being with what is. But it hasn’t been easy.

And my sensitivity has gone through the roof. I feel all sorts of people’s reality. And a lot of the time it gets validated (someone texts, someone posts on Facebook, I can see in real time who I’m sensing).

But the noise from the collective is overwhelming.

A couple weeks ago, I had to get off Twitter, which helps a little bit. But I stay on Facebook because of family and friends. So I react to the memes there and still have big, fat, opinions about the news.

I’m pretty pissed off with what’s going on in the external story line. And it feels wrong to be detached from it. It feels wrong to be doing well when so much is being destroyed and so many people are in pain. And I want to manipulate the shit out of reality.

But I only feel this way when I’m totally disconnected from myself as Consciousness. When I’m aligned as my higher self, I can see what’s unfolding as all part of the greater expansion.

When I’m aligned as my higher self, I know that it’s ultimately getting better. I know that we’re *all* very capable, Infinite beings, individually creating our reality.

Observing what is happening in the world from the perspective of Consciousness, it’s all very exciting. The more capable we are, the more creative our story lines. We’re collectively becoming very capable. We’re not off course, we moved to a more challenging one.

Navigating at this level is intuitively driven, an art, not a science. As Consciousness there isn’t anything to change, fix, or improve. It all reorganized in our favor.

And that’s what I need to remember. As Consciousness, it’s a benevolent Universe. Even when it doesn’t seem like it on the outside, I know, as Consciousness, all is very, very well.

Mystic Musings: The Pendulum Swings; How To Find Balance In Extreme Times.

The Pendulum Swings; How To Find Balance In Extreme Times. ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

This is a powerful time. We have a lot going on energetically, astrologically, and reflecting into the world and the news around us. I’ve been taking a few days off my regular work schedule… and have taken nearly a week off Twitter. To reclaim equilibrium.

Outrage can be exhausting. At the same time outrage spurs you to action, to doing something. We are collectively speaking out. That is awesome.

It’s one thing if you’re exhausted. It’s another if you feel paralyzed and need to reclaim power.

It feels like the 1930’s again, that we’re on a verge of a horrendous war with horrendous things already going on. And that the actions we each must take will determine our future. Like leaving the country before it falls to the Nazis.

And yet the U.S. is not Germany nor a country in Europe. I know folks who went to Canada and New Zealand during the Bush era and missed the Obama era.

We forget how bad the Bush era was. And this seems worse. And yet the pendulum swings.

Why is that? Why can’t we have stabile growth and steady improvement? Why does it always seem like steps forwards are followed by steps backward?

Is it that some of us are ready to ascend and the rest have other ideas?

I see this Consciousness shift affecting all of us, but we’re awakening at different times. It’s like watching the Wave at a baseball game. Some are stuffing their faces with opcorn when their time rolls around.

Some find balance only by going to extremes. The rest of us need to develop ‘sea legs’ to maintain our equilibrium around them.

When I think back to the Bush era, I simply stopped reading the newspaper. For 16 years (the Lewinsky scandal kept me reading only the comics section). That kind of reaction doesn’t seem possible to do nowadays, we’re all connected more. There’s this collective growth happening globablly where we’re unable to completely detach.

If you’re exhausted by outrage and cannot go on another march or sign another petition, know this:

We can influence externally by changing ourselves internally. We can all act as balances or ballasts, or our light can illuminate others, or our change can have a ripple effect – inspiring others to change as well. Our actions don’t have to be overt actions. Our inner states can have profound influence on the world around us.

This summer is going to be a firey one. Next week we have the first of 3 eclipses, bringing about powerful changes but also very aggressive times. It’s imperative to stay balanced within.

It helps to remember that everyone is Consciousness, everyone is very capable. And that light is increasing, no matter what it looks like in the news.

Mystic Musings: Nonviolent Civil Nonresistance

F 0 Comments

Nonviolent Civil Nonresistance ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

We’re in a time of tremendous turbulence, and oh, there is so much to resist! There are some really terrible things happening, it’s almost cartoonish how bad the bad guys are. Except they aren’t one dimensional and the plot is much more complicated than any comic can portray.

Egyptian Tank Man – Tarek Wajeh, Ahmad Shahin

What’s happening is the old power dynamics are appearing more extreme even as they are in the process of going away. We are witnessing every old ploy in the book, dominance and manipulation, designed to make old white guys more rich and powerful. Part of their technique is to deliberately create crises, intended to throw the rest of us into chaos. We’re riled up because they want to rile us up, and they want to get us emotionally exhausted. Because, in the lower dimensional, old paradigm game, that’s how they “win”.

But here’s the thing, it’s an energetically weak stance, to try to dominate other people. All your power is outside yourself. You’re actually dependant on those people beneath you. No rich man drives his own car, makes his own meals, staffs his companies.

It’s understandable to react to the pain and suffering they’re causing people. But the response shouldn’t be resistance. Resistance energetically attracts that which you are resisting. Resistance gives that which you are resisting more power.

Non resistance is the most powerful stance. It’s a very high vibration that appears transparent. You remain open. Negativity passes through you.

There’s a martial arts called Aikido, which focuses not on punching or kicking opponents, but rather on using their own energy to gain control of them or to throw them away from you. It is not a static art, but places great emphasis on motion and the dynamics of movement.

So this is a clue how to respond to what’s currently happening in the world. Yes, you can go march, hold signs, get arrested. You can call your congresspeople, make phone calls, sign petitions. But there’s a bigger way to respond.

Take back your power from that which you resist. Do not contribute to anything it represents.  When you stand in non-resistance, you are immensely powerful. Now imagine an entire group of people standing in non-resistance.

The non resistance technique I teach is to make yourself transparent. It energetically opens you so negative energy passes through. It actually feels like your molecules separate. The old name for this technique was ‘body of glass’ but to me glass isn’t a great term, since glass can shatter. In stead, you can think of it like wind blowing through a screen door, or like wearing a Harry Potter type invisibility cloak. You aren’t necessarily invisible (unless you want to be).

What it reveals, also, is that your “opponents” are actually in resistance themselves. They’re coming from a very dense space. They can throw energy at you, but it will have no effect on you. They can charge at you, and you can effortlessly step aside.

How this looks in your daily life is by not reacting to emotional manipulation in the news. By making choices, like economically boycotting stores that belong to or financially contribute to those that represent the denser energies.

The numbers are on your side. Evolution is happening. Light eradicates dark.

When you come from your inner power, you feel no resistance to the power games around you. As you stand in your power, it gives permission to others to be in their power. This is already happening, all you need to do is participate in it. And see how the world transforms!
