Mystic Musings: When You’re The Only Magician In The Room

When You’re The Only Magician In The Room ©2017 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

It can feel a little lonely, being the only magician in a world full of muggles. There’s no one to talk to about all the amazing things you’re experiencing. And when you try, your words get all jumbled up and people look at you as if you’re crazy.

You’re not crazy. Far from it. You may be the only sane person in the room.

The world is going through a shift in Consciousness but people are each waking up at different a pace. And those who are already awake may be hiding it, because they don’t want *you* looking at them as if they’re crazy.

It’s hard to understand how people can remain unconscious, when there’s such beauty and wonder all around.

So, of course, our first impulse is to run around trying to help everyone wake up. And to furiously use magic to make things different.

It works, temporarily, but always seems to backfire. Or worse, when you get entangled in other’s unconsciousness, it draws you back there, too.

How can we take them with us, our unconscious loved ones? How can we make the world less unbearable?

The world of Muggles becomes a lot easier when you’re not trying to drag them all into consciousness. They’ll wake up in their own sweet time. And you needn’t disguise yourself or dampen your energy to match them. Stay your bright and shiny self.

Unbearable things are going on in the world, and have been since the world began. Things are actually better than they used to be, and are getting better (news headlines notwithstanding).

There is one ‘Potteresque’ technique you can use to make it easier on yourself in your newly awakened, heightened sensitivity.  I call it the invisibility cloak.

Wrap yourself in it the next time you’re going to be around unconscious people. It won’t necessarily make you invisible, but it will help you be non-resistant to their denser energy. It will allow you to maintain your bright and shiny higher frequency.

You won’t always need to use it, but it will make it easier for you to be out in the world.

And as you learn to maintain your own unique energy as you navigate the world, you’ll begin to encounter other magicians. They were always there, but you couldn’t see them while preoccupied with muggles and mugglish things.

Play with this, this week, and see what happens!

Mystic Musings: How Can You Tell If You’re Going Through A Consciousness Shift?

F 0 Comments

How Can You Tell If You Are Going Through A Consciousness Shift? ©2017 Joan M. Newcomb

We hear all about this Consciousness Shift that’s happening, but how can you tell if it’s happening to you?

People like Eckhart Tolle and Byron Katie had very marked transformations. They each literally woke up one morning and each found their ego had dissolved.

And, you know, they’re famous people. They have best selling books. They’ve been on Oprah. So that must be what happens when you shift, right? No more pain, no more money worries, and you’re instantly enlightened.

That’s what happened to them. That’s what’s happened to some people. I talked to a woman in New England who’d had a similar experience, but lived a very quiet life afterwards.

It was a relief to connect with her. Because I was worried about turning into Byron Katie or Eckhart Tolle. I think it would be a pain in the ass to live with them. I can’t imagine staying married or having my kids around me, if I were questioning every thought or being constantly in the present moment.

Of course that’s the monkey mind ego talking. Because in reality, Byron Katie has a better relationship now with her adult children than when they were growing up. And has a loving relationship with her husband. Eckhart Tolle is also married (although I remember reading how he drove his wife crazy sorting out the recycling a piece at a time, when she just wanted to get it to the curb for pickup).

But the Consciousness Shift is different for everyone. It’s like being at a baseball game and the crowd does “the Wave”. People across the stadium start standing up, and it goes around the stands until it comes to you. Not everyone is standing up at once. And not everyone experiences it in the same way.

I’ve been evolving as Consciousness since 1974, consciously using techniques since 1981, and my language and experience has changed and expanded along the way. In 2006 I reached a tipping point, which propelled me into a new way of being.

Some people are finding themselves hyper sensitive, they’re feeling or sensing everyone around them. Some are having a hard time sleeping. Many feel uncomfortable and out of sorts with their old lives, and yet excited and impassioned about what seems to be awakening within.

A lawyer I know felt crazy because she wanted to quit her practice and be a Reiki Master.
A Christian who spent every Sunday in Church since childhood, left her community and discovered a deeper spirituality than she’d ever thought possible.

What happened to me is my old practice stopped working, my old belief system disintegrated. It was very disorienting, since I was very identified with my teachings. I was an energy expert, in techniques that have been around for thousands of years.

I’ve successfully “upgraded” those original techniques, and found new ways to navigate. I had to learn to bypass my intellect, and be improvisational, responding to whatever shows up in the moment.

In the past few years my empathy has gone through the roof. I sense family members who live 3,000 and 6,000 miles away. I know when someone has read an email I’ve sent. And that’s just with people who are still alive.

Ten years ago when I had a stint as a phone psychic, I developed clairvoyant techniques for talking with dead people. However what I experience now is kinesthetic, I’ll feel them waft through me. And visual, usually symbolic reminders that they’re around, although recently I’m actually detecting thought forms. Which might be more about time and space breaking down for me than actually connecting with the being in it’s deceased non-physical form.

The newest experience for me is noticing gridlines. Not vertical like in the movie the Matrix, but horizontal, and sparkly, superimposed over physical reality.

The other day I was having a challenging time, taking someone recently diagnosed with dementia to a support group. It was bringing up memories of doing the same thing for my mother, although this situation and this person is completely different. Experiences like this have been coming up recently and they’re an opportunity to be in present time, and release past energy.

When I was in the present moment, I would see these gridlines. When I sunk into my thoughts, they went away. Or, more accurately, I sunk into density and my ability to notice the gridlines went away. I’m choosing not to label or define it, I’m just noticing what is happening.

It’s a very subtle shift. And I suspect for everyone, their expansion into Consciousness on one hand is subtle but profound.

On the other hand, physical reality could be completely falling apart around you. That does tend to happen when we move to a new level. When you no longer match the density you’re in, reality reorganizes.

It’s less painful when you don’t resist the changes. It’s more graceful when you navigate it as Consciousness.

You don’t have to try to do anything to expand. It’s happening without any effort on your part. You just have to notice. And enjoy the ride.

Consciousness and Lightness in Being. Today on Conscious Conversations, Joan and Janet talk about the energetic differences between form and Consciousness. The energy of form is dense, heavy emotions, black and white thinking, life and death attitudes. The quality of Consciousness is lighter, compassion and amusement, expansive and broader perspectives. Tune in today and learn how to integrate both, to gain a sense of equilibrium.

How To Handle The Mosh Pit of Life

F 0 Comments

©2017 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

It’s been an emotional roller coaster ride recently. With all the events around the world, no one has been spared, it seems. It’s hard to maintain equilibrium in the midst of it all.

My original training as a healer and spiritual counselor taught me to be detached from my clients. The intention was to stay out of sympathy with them, because sympathy can actually be disempowering. If you feel sorry for someone, it invalidates their capability as Spirit. When you acknowledge them as Spirit, it recognizes them as whole and capable of creating their reality.

However the other end of the pendulum presented was empathy. The problem with empathy is that you’re feeling their feelings. Which makes it really hard to be neutral.

I’m sure the original translation of the teachings meant to be compassion. That is, compassion in the Buddhist sense, which accepts and doesn’t resist suffering, but also wishes all beings peace and happiness.

When I shift from my everyday perspective, where I can get caught up in injustice and sorrow, to an expanded perspective as Consciousness, I truly understand compassion.

As Consciousness I view the world as my creation, not a school but a playground of experiences. I can appreciate both the creativity of myself as Consciousness, and also the other aspects of Consciousness, in their life stories in form. I recognize that even the most unconscious-seeming person is still Consciousness. I can have compassion for the pain and discomfort that comes from being in form, in a body, without awareness.

There are some very painful stories out there. There’s heartbreaking loss. And yet, as Consciousness, there is no loss. The dead are still with us, we just can’t see them. The house is gone, things are lost that are irreplaceable in form, but there is life beyond.

Consciousness is neutral about these things. Consciousness is also neutral about time. It may take years to recover from the trauma, to rebuild lives. To Consciousness, this entire lifetime is in the blink of an eye.

Before “waking up”, I was in tremendous pain for so many years. I was suicidally depressed some of the time. When I lifted out of that level of depression, I made choices that may have limited me to the outside world, but were intended not to tip me over, to keep me from going back into that pit of despair.

Our societal measurements of success are not the same as Consciousness.

You can’t dive into physical reality without getting muddy. If you try to avoid it, you’ve missed the point of being here.

I look at what is happening in the world and I want to end poverty and starvation. I want everyone to feel nurtured and loved. I want everyone to be spiritually enlightened. I want everyone to have their heart’s desire.

And when I shift my perspective as Consciousness, I see that what everyone is striving for, they already have. Freedom. We are free to experience the world in all of its aspects. We’re free to explore the depths and the heights. We are free to create expansion *and* contraction, increase and limitation.

What everyone is desiring, they already are. At their Essence, they are Consciousness.

When I sense all of us as Consciousness, as much as I’d like to say it’s like a symphony, it’s really more like being in the mosh pit of a heavy metal concert. In the rain.

When I sense everyone as Consciousness, I can see how everyone is actually enjoying themselves here, even folks who thought they had tickets to Vivaldi and found themselves in the crowd listening to Metallica.

Manifesting Effortless Miracles (Are Easier Than You Think) ©2017 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

F 0 Comments

Four weeks ago I moved both my home and my office, and it feels like I’ve been sorting through boxes forever.  Today I excavated a bunch of notes from various training programs I’ve taken, and, my goodness, what a lot of information is in all those pages.

Just looking at them (not even reading them) feels overwhelming. And something I remember from one of the programs group calls was someone complaining how many hours she spent each morning implementing the techniques. She was meticulously doing *every*single*action* to make something happen in 30 days or less.

That’s a good way to make nothing happen in 30 *years* or more!!

But we’re so programmed to believe that if you work hard and do everything perfectly, good stuff will happen.

However, when you’re working as Consciousness, the opposite is true.

Effort, and trying hard, stops your creativity as Consciousness. Perfectionism paralyzes us into inaction.

If you’re trying really hard to magnetize your energy to attract something, effort repels it instead.

Consciousness works effortlessly. Actions taken as Consciousness are playful. Systems and processes only work if they’re done with curiosity, and improvisationally.

Intentions need to be open-ended. Techniques need to be used with a beginners’ mind. In fact, you often have to trick your mind, because it’s the part of you that wants to be in control, it wants to KNOW exactly how to do it, and be very specific about what is going to be created.

On the Transformation Game  board, there’s a Miracle Square, and when you land on it, you’re instantly relieved of all your pain and can gracefully go forward to any step on your path that you choose.

Going forward as Consciousness, you have an infinite amount of Miracle Squares in front of you. And any step, in any direction, can effortlessly land you in a reality bigger than you can possible imagine.

Life for me now, is like a full immersion Transformation Game. Every morning is a new beginning. Every door a portal into a new reality.

Play with this for the next few days and see what happens to you!
