Mystic Musings: Leaning Into Enormous Growth

Leaning In To Enormous Growth ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

It’s been an emotional week, in a way that I’ve not been familiar with in a long time. Last Saturday I went to the Bronx and got stuck talking with a crazy lady (nice, but crazy) for 90 minutes. Normally I would have handled this with humor and grace. That day, I felt like running screaming from the room. Then I went to the Whole Foods in Harlem (it seems to be my mission to visit every Whole Foods in New York City) and the population density just tipped me over. I’m not used to not enjoying myself to this extent.

Wow, I said to myself. I’m in a huge growth space.

Six months ago at a Meetup I was leading in Tacoma, we were playing with walking through doors to parallel universes, and I hit this kind of resistance as I stepped through one. I realized I was initiating something momentous. I recall leaning into it and wondering what shift was set in motion at the time.

Voilà.

Of course, this began in August but whatever is going on this week is moving it to a whole new level.

Sunday, my sister-in-law’s 70 year old brother came from Taiwan to help. He’s here until February.  All I knew about him was that he became a nurse’s aide when he retired from the army. So we’ve been very excited about his arrival, because he can take over a lot of the physical therapy.

What’s struck me at first is his very kind face. And he’s far more gentle with my brother than I am.

In fact, all of my sister-in-law’s friends and family that have come so far have been extraordinarily kind and gentle. You can tell they genuinely love my brother.

But this guy has been driving me crazy in ways I would normally be able to rise above. There’s a 13 hour time difference between here and Taipei. That’s a lotta days of jet lag. I feel I’ve been enormously rude and petty. But we’ve weathered it so far and yesterday I felt like I’ve broken through some of my stuff. I mean, he cooked my organic onion for his dinner and I didn’t feel ballistic. That’s progress.

There’s a lot of reorganization going on here. Even as I lose physical space, sharing the room with him, I’m gaining time. Now all I have to do is phone calls and paperwork. And I can leave the apartment during the day. Freedom.

My business is shifting, too. I have a two week pause with clients. I feel something else is emerging and I don’t know what it is. I just need to lean into it, and see what I step through to.

Astrologically, this is my natal Jupiter return and the last time this happened was when my work and my world shifted from Newtonian Physics to Quantum Physics. That’s all. I can’t imagine what this year will bring.

But it’s such a time of breaking down, loss of old creations, stepping into new and unfamiliar things every day.

This is happening in different ways to everyone. How are you experiencing it?

What are you losing? What are you gaining?

This week ended with the delivery of a hemi cane. It will help my brother, who’s partially paralyzed on the right side of his body, get out of his wheelchair and walk again. This is a significant step towards independence for him.

And, it snowed.

Mystic Musings: Complexity and Simplicity Coexist Simultaneously

Complexity and Simplicity Coexist Simultaneously ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Watching the results of the 2018 election, which brought a wave of fresh new faces into the political arena. There were many “firsts” elected to Congress and to other places throughout the US. First Native Americans elected. First Muslims. First Openly Gay people. Youngest. Oldest. Scientists. Engineers. In a county in Texas, 19 African American women ran for judgeships, and all of them won.

The results of the 2016 election spurred most of these people to seek political office. In 2016, and in the two years since, it seems like a solidifying of the old, white, male power paradigm. But in reality the opposite is happening.

Former Congressmen Leave Washington

I recall from my early metaphysical training that it takes 2 years for stuck energy to manifest (in terms of illness), but I also see a cycle of change that gets initiated and comes to fruition in 2 years as well. 

In astrology, Eclipses have an influence of 6 months to 2 years as well, so a shocking, “eclipsian” situation will have resolution or a deeper resonance two years later.

And yet, we’re moving into a 5D reality where these energetic rules no longer apply. Change can happen instantaneously. So why didn’t we reverse the results of the 2016 election faster, with such powerful collective intentions as the Women’s March at play?

Because we’re straddling both worlds. 3D still exists, just as we still enjoy watching black and white movies or old cartoons, even when color and CGI is available to us. 

As Consciousness we can morph situations, stretch time, collapse or fold reality. I notice that my body wants to do this from a manipulative place. As body-personality, I want to change, fix, or control what I see happening in the world, what I deem is “wrong”, that I want to make “right”.

As Consciousness, change reorganizes effortlessly. It flows into another state. It disappears and reappears differently. As body-personality, I need to put a lot of effort, blood, sweat, and tears, into making something happen.

From my perspective as Consciousness, complexity and simplicity coexist simultaneously. 

In the 3D world, people are inspired to seek office, and there are rules and schedules to be followed to make that happen. Our elections happen every 2-4 years. There are specific positions to run for, that give different amounts of influence. It takes time and space to see the results.

In 5D things happen randomly, without cause or effect or rational explanation. Pretty much everything that our current character in the oval office does or says could be construed as 5D. Things that can’t be said or done, get said or done. 

This is happening, with different storylines, to everyone, around the globe. I just read that Brexit (which got initiated approximately 2 years ago, similar timing to the last US presidential election) could be voted on again and possibly reversed. 

Consciousness has created a physical reality which is infinitely complex, beyond what we can imagine. Operating as Consciousness in physical form feels very simple, however.  As Consciousness, we enjoy everything that is playing out. 

So get out the popcorn and watch what unfolds.

Exciting times.

Mystic Musings: Peeling Away Layers, Releasing Relationships

F 0 Comments

Peeling Away The Layers and Releasing Relationships ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

The past four or five years, I’ve been focused on creating stability in my life. This has not been easy since my natural tendency is to bring light and light brings change. I grew up moving to different countries every 2-5 years, pulling up roots is second nature to me. Letting them sink deep is not.

I found myself creating groups, joining groups, and forging alliances in a very different way than ever before. I used to always feel on the periphery. I’d contribute, but was always mindful that at some point I’d be leaving. Relationships were lightly held.

There are some relationships I’ve created over the past few years that are draining. I’ve stayed committed to them, even when they take more than they give. At some point, they even stopped driving me crazy. But i didn’t have a reason to end them, even when I wanted to. (Funny to realize that just wanting to was not a strong enough reason).

Now, with my brother’s stroke, my caring for him is taking all my energy. It’s peeling away those relationships. I’m having to let go of anything inauthentic, anything that takes more than gives.

It’s amazing how it’s happening as well. Some are naturally stepping away, some I do have to haltingly put on hiatus, but even as I face this extremely limiting reality (I cannot go anywhere during the week, I have 12 hour days of caregiving and cannot leave the apartment unless there’s someone else to watch him, which most times there is not) it is also extremely freeing. All the responsibilities and obligations from before are released.

I’m not dropping any of these instantly, in certain cases I’m reluctantly letting some go. Even if I’ve been dissatisfied for a long time, there still was an invested interest. And yet it’s releasing all ties.

From one perspective, this seems outside imposed. These circumstances demand it. Like the Universe is making me do this. From another perspective, I’ve created this. As Consciousness, I’ve created this peeling away of layers, this release of whatever does not serve me. When I shift my perspective, I’m in total agreement with all that is going on. Because it’s my creation.

As Consciousness, there’s no need to change, fix, or manipulate anything happening on the outside. Although I have healing techniques that could change my brother’s state, I only use them when circumstances show up. Someone else instructed me to do “Qi Gong massage” on him, which I’m faithfully doing daily, and I feel it naturally shifting to my energy work.

Playing on this level, it’s simply about responding to what is. Navigating differently, making different choices.

There’s no judgement, no blame, no fault, no force. It’s a massive reorganization. Like moving furniture that hasn’t been moved for a while, there’s dust and debris, even lost items revealed.

We’re all going through enormous, evolutionary times. Every single one of us is Consciousness creating our unique storyline. Shift your perspective to Consciousness and you will know that all is very, very well.

Mystic Musings: What’s The Opposite of Compare And Despair?

F 0 Comments

What’s The Opposite of Compare and Despair? ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

It seems the greatest source of misery is to compare yourself with others. People’s outsides are always going to look better, and you can’t really know their insides.

You’re really comparing your insides to their outsides. You can’t really know your own outside because you’re looking at it from within.

Stradivarius’ Axelrod Quartet (photo: Mark Pelligrini)

When we compare ourselves to others, we’re naturally going to despair. But if you had the exact same life as people you envy, you wouldn’t enjoy it, because it wouldn’t be *your* creation.  (Clue: if you’re not enjoying your own life, is it because you’ve made it according to someone else’s recipe)?

The best way to stop comparing and despairing is to do the opposite. But what is that?

The opposite of compare is contrast.

The opposite of despair is hope, or joy.

When you revel in your own uniqueness, you experience true joy.

We weren’t mean to be cookie cutter impressions of each other. We’re all meant to be distinct individuals. As a collective, our uniqueness serves to make the world more full and vibrant.

Violas may seem redundant amidst violins and cellos, but an orchestra without violas would be missing specific tones and notes. Violas provide their own special line of harmony.

Contrast is a good thing.

From the perspective of Consciousness, the physical world’s contrast is exciting! Contrast doesn’t exist in the realm of Consciousness. It’s why it exists in this adventure in density and effort land. The contrast in your life reflects your creativity as Consciousness.

Relish your differences. Enjoy others for theirs as well.

Contrast can show up as hardships of difficulties – still reflecting your (or their) creativity as Consciousness.

When you shift your perspective to that of Consciousness, your hardships and difficulties reorganize into fun challenges.  Roll up your sleeves and dive into them!

Mystic Musings Blog: Beauty Amidst Ugliness

F 0 Comments

Beauty Amidst Ugliness ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

I’m currently in Queens, NY. It’s a completely different urban experience than Seattle. The population of the borough of Queens is 2,350,000. The population of Seattle is a little under 705,000.

Besides the density, it’s an area that’s been lived in for a long, long time. There’s dirt, sweltering heat, smells, and… peaks of beauty.

There are little reminders everywhere that beauty exists even in the midst of ugliness. And, as any artist will tell you, there’s beauty in ugliness, too.

We’re seeing different examples of ugliness in the world today, from human behaviors that are unkind or downright evil, to natural disasters intensifying as the climate changes.

It’s easy to get caught up in this reality, feeling swept away by forces that seem more powerful, or out of control.

Yet all of this is a creation of Consciousness, by Consciousness. At your essence, you *are* Consciousness and what you’re experiencing in your reality is created by You.

That doesn’t mean Climate Change is your fault, or that you’re responsible for the shitshow on the news. Or that people are dying because you had negative thoughts.

It means that you’re the composer, conductor, soloist, and lead chair of this orchestra. The music is pretty dramatic and clashing right now. It’s more Wagnerian than Bach. Or maybe in your reality it’s heavy metal.

As Consciousness you delight in all of your creations. Even as it seems frustrating to your body personality aspect. And when you shift your perspective to living life as Consciousness, the surrounding world comes into sharp focus. Colors seem brighter, it feels expansive and effortless.

And on a dingy, graffiti’d street in Flushing, a pink rose will appear to remind you that there is beauty in the midst of ugliness. All of this is indeed a creation of Consciousness.

We’re going through a huge evolutionary shift at this time. Increasing Consciousness is coming into form. We’re able to embody more light than ever before. And as we bring this in, it illuminates the darkness, it reveals where we haven’t dusted, it shows up in our surrounding reality as well.

All the ugliness in the news is a reflection of the darkness that is in the process of dissipating. Shadows go away when light floods in. What we’re seeing collectively is the light of Truth revealing the darkness of lies and distortions. People who’ve lived with those distortions as their reality are experiencing a lot of fear and discomfort.

And within each of us, that which our Light is not in alignment with, is disappearing as well. It can feel like a shock or a loss if you’re strongly attached to those things.

When your relax and allow yourself to operated as Consciousness, everything easily reorganizes in your favor.

Try this, and you’ll discover what manifests is beyond what your mind can possibly imagine.
