Contractor Built Houses Aka Manufacturing Without Consciousness

Contractor Built Houses Aka Manufacturing Without Consciousness ©2019 Joan Newcomb

My husband is an architect, so looking for a place to live with him has always been a different experience. But it’s helped me notice whether a dwelling is designed by an architect or by a contractor.
Contractor built houses are always missing something. There won’t be linen closets. There will be light fixtures at the top of very long stairways – impossible to change without risking your neck. There will be rooms in odd places, stuck off one one side of the house. 
Architect designed houses will have flow, they will have light, there will be more in the design than just what you can stick together with a computer program.
When it comes to manifesting our desires into form, if we’re operating without spirit, what we create will always be missing something. Our minds and our personalities are capable of bringing thought into form. We can do all the Law of Attraction suggestions, we can create vision boards, we can use affirmations, but there will be glitches in the system. Air bubbles in our 3D printed object.
Our higher selves, us as Consciousness,  is the architect. As Consciousness we know more that can possible fit into our brains – our hard drives would crash if we tried to bring it all in! When we manifest as Consciousness, what shows up is bigger than we can imagine. 
“How do I make that happen?” Our mind immediately asks.
Here’s the thing, our minds, our personality, can’t create a formula to make it happen as Consciousness. When it’s happening as Consciousness, there’s no logic to it. There’s no specific timetable. It comes from outside of time and space. It comes from the invisible, it comes from beyond the hologram. That’s incredibly frustrating for our mind machines!
“If I don’t control it, it won’t come out the way I want.” Our mind says.
Consciousness is always coming into form, Consciousness is always manifesting, in fact we slow things down when our minds grab the wheel. We get scared that what is being created isn’t what we want, or will make us feel more limited than what we already are. But limitation is a creation of our mind, personality. 
Immediately my mind starts considering all the problems I have and what I can do to solve them as Consciousness. It doesn’t work that way. It works the other way around.
Start by focusing on Consciousness. Start by tuning into what Consciousness feels like to you. Start identifying *as* Consciousness. This changes the way you operate in the world. It changes the way you interact with others. It changes your perception of your life. 
When you’re manifesting as Consciousness, you’re in agreement with everything that is happening. You feel infinite love for all of creation. 
Then things will begin unfolding in your favor. Your storyline will reorganizing in surprising ways. Living in the mystery won’t be so mystifying. It will be fun and amusing.

 

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

How To Find Constancy In Turbulent Times ©2019 Joan Newcomb

How To Find Constancy In Turbulent Times ©2019 Joan Newcomb

I’ve been quite caught up in the political roller coasters happening on both sides of the pond. An UK High Court ruled that Boris Johnson’s recent closure of parliament was against the law, shortly before the story about Donald Trump asking the Ukraine for help with the  US election broke.  
It got me thinking about time and cycles of time. Brexit began shortly before Donald Trump was elected. It’s taken until now for things to start to unravel although they haven’t fully done so yet. However the UK’s also been through three Prime Ministers since it started. 

 

The US has had two presidents, if you count that Russia’s interference in the US’ elections started during the last election campaign.  
I honestly don’t know enough about the UK’s parliamentary system nor it’s constitution to comment about what’s going on there. I have learned a ton about the US’s constitution and it’s system of checks and balances in the last three years. And, the US experiences pendulum swings every four to eight years. What was done by the previous administration is being undone by the present one, but what the present administration’s doings can be undone by the next one. Except for deaths of immigrants at the border and the increase in hate around the country. 
One thing the UK has, which the US hasn’t, is the Queen. She’s been a constant presence above the political fray for over sixty years. How many Prime Ministers has she outlasted? She gives an identity and models behaviour that continues regardless of the scandals and drama, and what is currently rocking her subjects to their core.
I got up early on Monday to acknowledge the Equinox and to experience Nature’s shift at this time of year. As I sat in meditation, I felt the constancy of Nature. Nature continues through it’s cycles. Yes there is weather and even climate change, and yet Nature feels enduring. I remember reading, I believe it was in “To Hear The Angels Sing” by Dorothy Maclean, the perspective of trees. Trees have enormous lifespans, some have existed for hundreds if not thousands of years. They silently witness the seasons and the passing years. They are also the lungs of the Earth.
There’s a remarkable peacefulness about Nature, even as fires burn and glaciers melt. We’re the ones freaking out, because we are vulnerable and can only survive within narrow parameters on this planet. Nature will continue to exist.
My rational mind is chattering away as I type this. It flashed me pictures of a dead planet, as if the Earth is on the verge of becoming Mars. 
As I settle into the enormous embrace of Nature I am also shown multiple possibilities, including if humans band together and make specific changes now. 
This planet is one of contrasts, where opposites exist. Nature has its many levels of creating and destroying. Some trees don’t germinate unless there’s a forest fire. Earthquakes indicate the planet is expanding, the continents are still moving. Human beings have their own cycles of creating and destroying as well. As we evolve, we have to de-story old ways of being. We are witnessing the death knell of those things that do not align with increased Consciousness in form.
In the last three years I’ve hit many points of wanting to change, manipulate, and fix external reality. I want to be in a different Universe. And yet I had also come to a realization that, as Consciousness, I *am* creating this reality, moment by moment. If I try to alter or adjust what’s going on outside of myself, I have lost my focus as Consciousness and am trying to control from an egoic level.
Recently, however, I’ve been playing with my old techniques. They don’t work very well – rather like opening up a computer that operates solely on MS-DOS. One thing that has created surprising results is to simply bless my circumstances. I imagine gold sunlight coming down over me, or my day, or my journey. I do it whimsically, without expectations. And then I’m completely gobsmacked how things unfold in my favor, even to the point of time and space reorganizing. 
If you have felt overwhelmed by current circumstances, I invite you to disconnect from the newsfeed for a bit and connect with Nature. And if your own timeline feels unmanageable, bless it.
Try that for the next few days and see what happens! 

 

Symbiotic Relationships 2019

F 0 Comments

©2019 Joan Newcomb
This is an updated version of a post from 2012

I’m in the midst of heavy duty care giving again, this time helping my younger brother recover from a stroke. It helps me to remember that in every situation, I’m receiving as well as giving. Right now there is healing occurring on many levels. My brother and I share a unique childhood, no one else in the family (who is still alive) experienced the things we experienced. And I’m benefiting in other ways, like getting to spend my weekends running around Manhattan. 



“Symbiotic Relationships”usually refers to two different species, such as barnacles on whales or birds on rhinos.  Barnacles grow on whales and live off of particles floating in the surrounding ocean that would otherwise affect the whale’s vision.  Several kinds of birds feed off of insects that live on rhino’s skin (you could say the insects themselves have a symbiotic relationship with their host).


It’s also a good term for how we humans interact with each other.


Biology describes 5 different kinds of Symbiotic Relationships:

  1. Mutualism, where both species benefit
  2. Commensalism, where one species benefits, the other is unaffected
  3. Parasitism, where one species benefits, the other is harmed
  4. Competition, where neither species benefits
  5. Neutralism, where both species are unaffected

(taken from http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_a_symbiotic_relationship#ixzz20XXT5FYX)

It’s an interesting way to look at your friends, family and coworkers!  Is your relationship Mutual, a ‘win-win’ for each person?  Are you and your partner, family member, or employer/coworker/customer equally benefiting? 


Is it Commensal you’re getting something and they’re not getting anything but it doesn’t matter to them?  That’s a tougher one to imagine.  Even if you feel you’re putting out all the effort and getting nothing back, there’s always something returning to you.


It gets a little messy when considering Parasites.  People aren’t exactly ticks or noxious weeds, but you could look at some government officials being parasitical when they want tax breaks for themselves while withdrawing services for others. When I was a teenager, my father called my mother, my brother and I, “parasites”. Verbal abuse scars the soul. This is one of the childhood wounds I’m hoping I’m healing while I’m New York.


Biology defines Competition as where *neither* benefits.  Spiritually, competition stops growth and creativity, as it places your attention outside yourself.  Competition focuses not just on doing better than someone but in outdoing them.  In biology it affects survival.


Neutral is as tough to imagine as Commensal, because how can there be an interaction without being affected?


Unless you’re roughing it on a desert island, we are all interdependent, no matter how alone or resistant you may feel.  No relationship is truly one way.  Even anonymously helping someone leaves you with a good feeling, just as using them leaves you feeling bad.


It can be disturbing to realize in a dysfunctional relationship you were actually getting something out of it.  Perhaps you were afraid to leave because you were still trying to get taken care of.  Perhaps you didn’t want to take responsibility for yourself.  Perhaps their dysfunction made you seem normal!


We are all participating in a giant energetic tapestry called life.  Each of us is creating or emitting a colorful thread of our own unique vibration.  And from a broader perspective we’ve agreed to be here interacting with everyone else.  It’s all good, even if we don’t experience it that way at the moment.


This week, in your relationships, notice – are you the whale or the barnacle? The rhino or the bird?  The tree or the ivy?  It doesn’t matter if you’re big or little, you’re receiving something from it!  Acknowledging the pattern can help you change it.  Recognizing your part or what you’re receiving from it can help you accept it, and transform it if you want to.


Try this for 7 days and see what happens!

Unconsciousness Exposed

F 0 Comments
Unconsciousness Exposed ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC
I’ve been watching short clips of U.S. Congressional Hearings, where each member has five minutes to ask questions of a person or persons brought before them for different reasons. It’s a fascinating process.
Whether they’re grilling bank CEOs on underpaying their employees, or the Education Secretary’s decision to cut funding for all reading programs from the budget, the member’s questions shine a light on their unconsciousness. It’s a great example of the working of the U.S. government, but it also what is happening as Consciousness on a global level.
There’s a huge wave of resentment towards rich people, specifically billionaires, and it struck me that it’s not because they’re rich, but because they behave unconsciously. How can back CEOs have so much money when a bank teller can’t afford to support her child on her paycheck. How can the Secretary of Education cut reading programs, when the sale of one of her yachts would fund the entire budget.
You could say the wealthier people are, the more unconscious they seem to be, that they are disconnected from the needs of regular people. That’s not a fair generalization, because the are wealthy people doing good things, to help eradicate disease and poverty, around the world.
The current shift in Consciousness is causing a greater light to be shone on unconsciousness. As Consciousness comes into form, it heightens awareness on every level. You can describe it as waking up, because it feels like you’ve come out of a deep sleep, that the sun has risen. In reality Consciousness has always been coming into form, it’s just that our current form can now embody more of Consciousness.
So each one of us is feeling that effervescent life force more acutely within. It is bringing an innate sense of self worth, that who we are is of value, our uniqueness matters. Our voices are being heard.
It’s causing a great reorganization of power. From the old paradigm of dominance and separation, to new new paradigm of cooperation and inclusion. 
It may seem like things are more unfair than ever, that “bad” is triumphing over “good”, but it only looks that way because the lights are on and we’re seeing it more clearly. And there is more good, but bad is just louder. 
Power is not force or dominance. True power is quiet, soft, inner strength, clarity, transparency. 
What’s reorganizing in your life? Where are the lights turning on? Who are you becoming, what is your Essence calling you to express?
When you shine light on unconsciousness, it either wakes up or disappears. Where ever you’ve felt restricted or whatever you’ve felt has been holding you back, it in the process of dissipating. Don’t resist it, and you’ll have the most delicious expansion into a life beyond your wildest imagination!

 

Mystic Musings: It’s A New World But It’s Not Spiritual

F 0 Comments

“It’s a New World but it’s not Spiritual” ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Have you noticed an energy shift over the last few weeks? It’s been a continual and gradual evolution but the last few weeks have been particularly noticeable.

My husband, who’s a Tibetan Buddhist (which I describe as the Catholicism of Buddhism, steeped in ancient ritual and lore), said the other day, “it’s a new world, but it’s not Spiritual.”


I totally agree. Now he may have meant something different with his words, but I perceive that the hologram has shifted to a higher vibration, but it’s still physical reality (just a less dense version of it).

Last night he said it’s like we’re all being remapped, like a software update. I’ve noticed that going on for some time. I feel like our energy systems have gone from gasoline to fuel cell.  He also said it seems like our egos have changed.

Which makes total sense to me as our egos are the personality part of our physical reality.

My explanation for all of this is that greater Consciousness is coming into form, and our systems and the hologram has had to update in order to accommodate the increased frequency.

Those of us that identify with form, that identify as their bodies and personalities, are feeling really disoriented by the changes. They’ll interpret it as if they’re dying when really it’s just the denser vibration becoming more diffuse.

To me, the external world has become brighter and lighter. It sometimes feels like a movie set but still vividly real.

It’s a New World, and yet it’s still a hologram. Our bodies are operating at a higher frequency, but they’re still physical containers. We feel more integrated into them, just as we feel more connected to others around the world. Because we *are* that Consciousness more in form, in all forms. 

And still experiencing our individual timeline, our individual storyline, our particular weaving through this version of time and space. It’s just that time and space has become more malleable, and the storyline more variable.

You’ll have to go through your own updates with all of this. You’ll have to find your “sea legs”, you own, new way of grounding and centering in this upgraded reality. 

As Consciousness you can make up your own techniques, and they’ll work! Operating as Consciousness, you’ll find reality reorganizing in your favor in the most enjoyable and entertaining ways, with results beyond your wildest imagination.

Mystic Musings: Ghosts Of The Past

F 0 Comments

Ghosts Of The Past ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Since September, I’ve been mostly back East, helping my little brother recover from a stroke. One of the not so hidden gifts of being there is that I get to recognize matching experiences we’ve had, growing up in our family with it’s unique background.

As kids, we moved every few years to different countries. It was a rich and varied in cultural experiences. We learned to be resilient and adaptable. We came out citizens of the world. 

And, we had to represent the United States, be the picture perfect family, while at the same time not really standing out. If we stood out, we could get kidnapped or killed. Essentially we learned to hide in plain site.

It makes it really difficult to be successful as an adult if you can’t be seen. If you can’t really e yourself.

We had lofty goals placed above us, ones we couldn’t reach, with the idea that it would stretch us. But really it set us up to fail.

And there were always critical asides, which continued on until a few years ago. Meant to belittle us, and also divide us. Keep us separate so we can’t compare notes.

These asides continue to get repeated even after the original speaker died. They have a ripple effect throughout the whole family. They get repeated and passed on.

And they knock around inside our head. The original speaker is dead, why can’t these thoughts die, too?

Early in my career as a coach, I worked with women from a domestic violence survivor group. Even though they’d divorced their abusers, the things they said still haunted them.

They learned to catch the thoughts as they had them, and do something to dismiss them. One woman would put her hand up in the “stop” gesture. In the middle of teaching water aerobics, she found herself doing it, and the whole class, following her, put their hands up, too. Later, she had to talk to her abuser in person, and when he started to say something, she automatically put her hand up, and it stopped him in reality as well.

When it happens in our heads, we can recognize these thoughts as not being real, not in the present moment. You can stop them, dismiss them, highlight and delete them, flush them down an imaginary toilet. You’ll find a tremendous amount of energy being released.

When it happens by coming out of the mouths of others, you can question them. Was that really what was said? Was that really true? People operate unconsciously, you don’t have to argue with them, you can just question the statement (or share your differing experience).

Ghosts of the past exist in the shadows. You don’t have to be afraid of no ghosts. Shine the light of truth on them, and they’ll disappear.

Mystic Musings: Off Kilter Wonkiness Is Reality Reorganizing!

F 0 Comments

Off Kilter Wonkiness Is Reality Reorganizing ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

It’s been a wonky week. The energy feels off kilter. I can’t put it down to Mercury Retrograde (although there’s definitely been some of that – communications and electronics mishaps).

But this reminds me of two years ago, at the time of the Brexit vote and then the U.S. election, where many of us felt sideswiped by the results. Back then it felt like being shoved into an alternate universe.

This feels reality is reorganizing. The pendulum swinging back into balance (I hope not before swinging to another extreme). It’s like the part of the movie where things start to get resolved.

In some ways it’s been annoying. Like knowing the end of the movie but not knowing *how* the story gets there.

And also knowing that we’re not done yet with wild, unpredictable, out of the blue, plot twists and turns.

To me, it’s all been an affirmation that we’re living in a hologram. Things that can’t possibly happen have been happening. It’s kind of like the Saturday Night Live writers have taken over the Cosmic screen play and they’re competing with each other for best skit. You think that today’s news cycle was outrageous? Hold my beer, the next comic says.

We can have a variety of reactions to what’s happening. We can hunker down and let things unfold. That can feel like reality is happening to us, but even no action is a chosen action.

We can resist and fight what’s happening. Try to make people listen to us. Make the government change their minds. Throw money at the problem. Move to another country.

That’s like wrestling with the scenery on a movie set. Shouting over other people’s lines. Or storming out of the room, as if that will change anything.

We can also engage and listen. Call, and write, and vote.

And those of us who dance to a different drum, who heed a higher calling, who may be feeling the wonkiness more than most, what can we do? Change our inner state, change our minds, shift our energy, step into a parallel universe where it’s all unfolding in our favor, where it’s a benevolent Universe, where it’s all unfolding in everyone’s favor.

Responding as Consciousness, you can be amused at the storyline. You can appreciate wonkiness. You can recognize that everything is validation that this is a hologram created by Consciousness. That everything is a story within the hologram (even this explanation is a story within the hologram).

The time is ripe to make this shift. And all it takes is a change of viewpoint. See yourself as greater Consciousness embodying into form. You love your body and your personality, it’s Your creation as a vehicle in this world, and a way to fully feel and engage in this world. Others are also Consciousness in form, other aspects of yourself, other players in this online game.

Yet reality is malleable, and others show up in your storyline but do not influence it without you creating it as part of your own plot. (And you show up in theirs the same way).

Playing in this way and at this level is effortless, fun, and enjoyable.

You inherently know all is very, very well.
