Mastering the new Consciousness ©2017 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC
We have already shifted to a new level of Consciousness, it’s just that not all of our bodies and personalities have come up to speed.
For one thing, reality looks the same. For another thing, reality feels completely different.
And in this new reality, many old paradigms no longer work.

Like when you upgrade your operating system, you have to upgrade much of your software.
In fact, most of the old ways of operating are now defunct. You can’t apply the old rules of power in this new reality. Your energetic engine has changed. Gasoline doesn’t work in your Tesla.
Your ego may value being an expert. It may value being the know it all, having all the answers, being better than and smarter than.
Yet in this new Consciousness, approaching things with a bigger’s mind is far more powerful. All the answers are available to you, you just don’t have to carry it around in your hard drive any more.
Power looks different as Consciousness. It’s inner power. It has clarity and a sense of well being.
There isn’t any competitive energy, because there’s the awareness that *everyone* is whole, capable, and Conscious.
Everyone, at their core, is Consciousness. Everyone is equally powerful. As we each grow in this awareness, there is more interconnectedness. There’s more teamwork. There’s networking. There’s interdependence and independence at the same time.
Having more stuff doesn’t carry any weight in this new awareness. In fact, heaviness has no place here. There’s no density nor effort.
At some point of development, manifestation becomes instantaneous. And, the urge to manifest, the urgency, is gone. It’s all about creativity. This world is a fun playground.
Conscious evolution happens in waves, there’s always individuals on the leading edge, bringing new information into form.
If you’re reading this, you’re one of them. You wouldn’t be drawn to this article if you weren’t.
While the rest are coming up to speed, it may feel lonely at first. It may feel like people don’t understand you or where you are at. That’s just the old patterns playing out, dissipating.
If you notice anything that “makes you feel” frustrated, powerful, reactive, rebellious, resentful, resistant – you are bumping up against old paradigm patterns.
Nothing is more powerful than You. That becomes apparent when you shift your perspective to seeing yourself *as* Consciousness, creating your reality, through this physical form, in this hologram, this game called life on this playground called earth.
You don’t have to go out there to change, fix or manipulate anything. As you navigate as Consciousness, reality starts to reorganize around you.
That doesn’t mean you can’t choose to respond to what is showing up in your reality. Maybe you feel like making a phone call and expressing your views or requesting an action. Maybe you feel like going out to stand or walk with people who share your interests.
But you’re coming from an empowered space, and responding to what is. It feels different to engage in the world this way.
Mastering the new Consciousness means acquiring proficiency with the new skills of navigating reality that is manifesting with a higher vibrational frequency than we’ve ever experienced before.
Really, it’s Consciousness mastering the new physical reality.
We’re going from wading at the bottom of the ocean, where our bodies felt like deep sea divers suits, to not-quite-astronauts in zero gravity on the space station. In zero gravity, force propels things away from you, or you away from what you’re going for. It’s a more subtle way of moving through the world.
As you move through your world this week, notice what is different. Take the time to shift your awareness and view things differently. Make different choices and responses.
Try this for the next seven days, and see how your life transforms!

Today on Conscious Conversations, Joan and Janet talk about Sadness, Grief and Sorrow as Consciousness. How important is it to acknowledge these feelings? How can we possibly be happy in such wild and crazy times? Tune in today to learn how!
We love hearing from you, email us and join us on Facebook and Twitter and give us your suggestions of things to talk about, and we’ll give you 15 minutes of fame by mentioning your name on the air!
This planet is a playground, an adventure in density and effort. It is here for us to experience physical reality in all it’s glory.
The primary energies at play are creation and destruction.
If you look at nature, you see examples everywhere. Trees fall over in the forest and become hosts for new saplings. Waterfalls erode their rocky beds. Birds spread seeds, bees pollinate plants. And predators cull overpopulated prey.
Destruction is needed in nature. Forest fires release seedlings that otherwise would not grow. Volcanoes spewing lava create new islands. Destruction can actually be very creative.
It’s a fundamental truth that if you want to create something in your life, you have to destroy something.
We have tremendous ethics around destruction. It’s bad. When in reality, what may need to be destroyed in order to create, may be your limiting thinking.
Destruction feels like death, and in some ways it is. It may be death to an aspect of your identity. It may be death to a dream that wasn’t even yours to begin with.
If you want to expand, you have to knock down a few walls.
The energy of destruction need not be violent. And it need not involve other people.
Often when someone wants to expand in their lives, they think they have to destroy their current relationships. They think others are holding them back.
When you release whatever is inside you that is holding you back, often people around you change. You’ve released the limiting pattern and the people in your life transform accordingly.
Sometimes you shift to a new level and friends fade away, with new friends showing up. You don’t need to reject anyone, only those who match your new vibration are in your new reality.
People enmeshed in old paradigm power games don’t understand the gentle grace of Consciousness. Consciousness is bringing expansion, always evolving with benevolent intent.
As greater Consciousness comes into this world, old ways are disintegrating. Those who are strongly identified with dominance and limitation are having a difficult time right now. To them it feels like *they* are dying. They are fearfully trying regain structures that no longer exist, that cannot be held in this new world.
If there is something you’d like to let go of, you don’t have to ‘burn bridges’ or ‘kill your darlings’. Focus on what you’d like instead, and watch your reality reorganize itself to accommodate your new desire.
The new way of Creating as Consciousness is very subtle yet very profound. As you shift your focus, it shifts your energy, and what no longer has your attention will disappear from your reality. And what focus on will manifest.
It doesn’t have to be a perfect vision, in fact it often shows up more quickly when you focus on the feeling. When Creating as Consciousness it’s helpful to have broad intentions.
When you’re overly specific, you’re often resisting what you don’t have. Open-ended requests allow you to create more than you can possible imagine.
Play with this for the next week and see what happens!

When I was caring for my mother who had Alzheimer’s, I got this book called “Creating Moments of Joy”. It specifically focuses on being in the present moment with people with dementia and celebrating whatever happiness you can have, right here and now.
It was an enormous relief not to fight what was happening, but to dance with her memory loss and the resulting behavior as the filters broken down. We savored the moments, sitting in the sunshine and going for drives in the countryside. And monthly field trips to the Kreeger museum that has a special program for people with memory loss and their caregivers. And, a couple times, before it became impossible, an evening at the theatre.
Those moments are highlights over the rest of that time, which was nearly unbearable, it was so painful. Yet when I look back, those are the times I remember the most, more than the others.
It seems to me life is a series of moments of joy, amongst times of challenges.
When we’re little, we flow from one moment to the next. We find joy in dandelions and butterflies. We cry when we scrape our knee. We laugh at silly things.
As we get older we accumulate more ‘scraped knees’, and carry the experiences with us. Rather than picture books of happy times, we’re galleries of war photos.
You can’t move forward, with your evolution as Consciousness, with such density.
In stressful times, you need moments of joy. It’s not being in denial about the awful things going on. It’s coming up for air once in a while.
The worst is coming out of the woodwork right now because we’re in a collective shift to a higher vibration of consciousness. It’s in the process of being cleared, as it’s exposed to more light it cannot fail to disintegrate.
It’s painful to watch. It’s reopening wounds, revisiting past trauma. Which is allowing us to heal our scar tissue. We can get through this by creating moments of joy.
Moments of joy can also redirect you out of misery. It doesn’t take very long to shift longstanding patterns and introduces new experiences of reality. Abraham Hicks says it only takes 17 seconds. You catch your habitual thoughts and redirect them.
When I manifested my now husband, l did this. I realized I’d been driving around thinking of all the terrible relationships I’d had. Which was creating an energetic inventory for the next relationship. So I deliberately focused on the qualities I wanted instead, and he showed up.
By creating joyful moments, you can created more of them. You shift your attention to what you want (without resisting what you don’t want), you bring it into existence.
There will always be things to resist. There will always be pain and unpleasantness. This planet is a dichotomy of beauty and ugliness, a playground of density and effort. We’re here to create, to bring our unique vibrations, to feel the feelings of the physical realm.
What moments of joy can you create today? Be on the lookout for opportunities. As you notice them, more possibilities show up. You’ll gradually rise up out of the current vibratory level to one of more wellbeing. And this has a ripple effect. It assists with the collective evolution. As more of us create moments of joy, the more joyous the world will become.

Today on Conscious Conversations, Joan and Janet talk about Reframing our viewpoints and stories. There’s a lot of chaos and drama in the world today. What would your life be like without your story? Tune in today to discover what a relief it is when you see the bigger picture of what is really going on!
We’re engaged in an uncivil war.
In this time of fake news, and with even “real” news regurgitating complete falsehoods, it’s too easy to get taken off course by things that are deliberately designed to evoke an emotional reaction.
It’s exhausting and distracting and makes even the most enlightened of us forget that we’re Consciousness, we’re Infinite Beings creating our reality.
Trump’s heralding in a new age.
We are actually in a time of clearing and healing. There is greater Light in the world and it is revealing the most repressed darkness. All the ugliness that has come to the surface is being cleaned. Your home always looks worse when you’re deep cleaning.
It’s triggering each of us at our very core. It’s bringing up childhood memories and generational miasma. You can’t take this baggage with you to the next level of evolution.
Even as we are inspired to take action, we’re disempowered by our own”stuff”. We are at war in our minds, we have insane cabinet members in our heads who threaten to destroy the different departments of our lives.
The news may trigger us, but we’re creating our own drama and feeding it with our thoughts. When we stop fighting in ourselves or wrestling with scenarios, we can take clear action.
Years ago I was married to a covert cocaine addict. In order to regain my sanity, I needed to learn to detach from the emotional roller coaster. I made up my own slogan: “Don’t React Dramatically – Even If It Seems Dramatic.”
If I am triggered, if I am reacting with strong feelings, I am not in present time. I am engaging with a lie. What I am perceiving is not the truth.
I have lost control and I am fighting with the illusion.
We’re powerless over the illusion and we’re powerless over other people’s insanity. We’re powerless over what they say and what they tweet and what they sign. But we’re not powerless over our own voices, our own votes, and our own actions. We just feel powerless when wrestling with the insanity rather than the solution.
Where Real Power is.
We can regain our internal power in several ways. First, by stepping back and not engaging with crazy people or crazy headlines. Take time to respond rather than react. Take a break from the noise, turn off your devices and take a walk.
I always reconnect with Consciousness when I’m out in nature, even if it is just noticing trees on city streets. There is a power greater than Faux news. And You, at your Essence, are this power.
When you’re reconnected within, you become clear at what your choices are and how you can contribute.
Because this time is not calling us to be in denial or to go back into our caves or bubbles. It is calling us to be fully in our bodies and to participate. You can take truly empowered action when you’re aligned with yourself as Consciousness.
The Bigger Picture of What Is Going On.
The birth of a new era requires expansion and contraction. Progress experiences ebbs and flows. This feels like the past because we’re at a new level of releasing those old patterns. After we’ve cleaned the kitchen and the living room, we go upstairs. Just because the bedrooms and bathrooms are dirty doesn’t mean we haven’t been cleaning, we’re just on a new floor.
We’re not going to back to Nazi Germany because we’re America and our basic foundational pattern is freedom. We’re seeing these shadows of the past because they’ve come to the surface to be cleared.
We have checks and balances and we have an inherent sense of our rights. There’s more collective empowerment in this country than 1920’s and 1930’s Europe knew. You cannot control a country founded on rebellion.
Remind yourself that this is 2017, bring yourself into the present moment. In Present Time you are fully connected with yourself as Consciousness. This is where you can transform your reality.
This is where we shall not regret the past (nor wish to shut the door on it). Let the baggage of the past be archived. It’s not forgotten, it’s acknowledged as useful building blocks to where you are now.
I leave you with the Work of Byron Katie. There’s great revelations and relief in this video.
