We All Get Daily “Do-Overs” (and Why there are no ethics as Consciousness) ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

I’m working with several people on reconciling their pasts. They are knee deep in shame and struggle over things they’ve done. The main focus is to shine a light on their side of the street, so they can move forward with no regrets.

Now, as a mystic and Consciousness worker, I have a different perspective on time and space and what happens in our storylines. Yet even though I know we each create our reality as greater Consciousness, and that to Consciousness there is no good or bad, I still struggle with things I haven’t forgiven myself for.

A realization I had today is that we have these different themes running through our lives, different story threads, different recurring energy patterns. When we engage unconsciously, these patterns seem to run us. We do things we may later consider unconscionable when when shine the light of Consciousness on it all.

It’s not useful to berate ourselves or want to punish ourselves to past misdeeds. It just solidifies the pattern we want to unravel. Sometimes there are definite actions we can take to help us release the past. But sometimes we might have already rectified the situations and we haven’t recognized it.

Mind you, Consciousness is infinitely neutral about all of this. When our bodies die, what remains is our greater Consciousness, and there’s none of this leftover residual energy that we’ve made up stories about from a personality level interpretation.

We don’t go to hell, we aren’t trapped in purgatory, our immortal souls are not destroyed by the misdeeds committed while in form. It’s all just absorbed into Consciousness, like falling into an ocean of Love.

It’s hard to comprehend while in form, because this is a world where things are black and white, good and bad, right and wrong. So we will interpret the afterlife with these same assumptions.

When we’re entangled in form, these ethics are all very real. Outside of form, they don’t exist.

That doesn’t mean that it’s ok to run around killing people or ripping them off while you’re in body. Not because it’s bad, but because you’re engaging in unconscious behavior patterns. When you’re operating as Consciousness, you have no interest in playing that way in form.

So how do we reconcile the actions of the past, when we were operating as our body personality egoic patterns, from this new awareness as Consciousness?

It’s simple (as everything as Consciousness is simple). Each day we get a “Daily Do-Over”. We get to be different. Every day is a new reality. Kind of like the movie “Groundhog Day”, except the story moves onward.

We get to be new every morning. We don’t have to behave the way we used to, we don’t have to react to things the way we used to. And even if we are engaging with situations and people from our pasts, we don’t have to be the way that’s projected at us (because there are all sorts of stories out there as well.

As Consciousness, we’re inventing this moment to moment. If past situations arise in the present, they’re opportunities to be different. Each time you are different with past patterns, the energy dissipates until it’s gone completely.

Each time we respond as Consciousness, we embody our greater self more into form, we’re more empowered, clear and confident. And our lives reorganize is miraculous ways.

Mystic Musings: Solidity versus Stability; what is safer during these changing times?

Solidity versus Stability; what is safer during these changing times? ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

We’re going through a pretty chaotic time. Monumental changes are happening, faster than ever before. We’re needing to adjust at lightening speed.

It’s daunting and disorienting. How do we feel safe during all this expansion? How do we maintain our equilibrium?

The old or traditional ways of doing this aren’t working any more. In the past, it would be creating or seeking some kind of anchor. That anchor may be in the form of a reliable job, an established belief system such as a religion, or even a persona, like being a “a solid citizen”.

However, solidity is no longer an effective way to to respond to growth. The vibrational frequency of this Consciousness Shift is so high (and increasing exponentially) that trying to anchor into density is about as safe as staying inside a brick building during an earthquake.

Wait, I can hear all your analytical minds buzzing – doesn’t stability equate with solidity? Isn’t it the same thing? Are you stronger when you’re solid?

Not necessarily. When you’re in the amount of expansion we’re experiencing, you need sea legs under you. Trying to stay immovably firm during these energy fluctuations, you’ll topple over.

What’s already happening is, any antiquated concept or tightly held belief within you is disintegrated, like mortar between bricks. Heck, for some people, even the bricks are turning to dust. Or maybe just their brick façades.

What creates stability instead? Think of it like trying to stay upright on a boat in the ocean, or even on a surf board (during some growth periods). Your focus goes inwards, to your core. Your feet may flat on the floor, yet your stance is flexible.

It’s a different way of anchoring, going within, than going down into the planet. It may not seem very stable at first. In fact, it seems the opposite. Yet I’ve found in this new Consciousness, everything is often the opposite of what we were originally taught.

Reality is under renovation right now, it isn’t the most secure anchor point. When you anchor within yourself, you’re accessing your greater aspect of Consciousness. It’s going deeper into the essence of who you really are, rather than the illusion of what is.

We don’t need the old forms of grounding or protection. Protection is often a form of resistance anyway, and resistance magnetically attracts what you don’t want. Consciousness is more powerful than anything. There’s no need for protections in this new world.

When you connect inward to Consciousness, you innately know it’s a benevolent Universe. You innately know that all is very, very well.

Mystic Musings: Self Driving Cars

Self Driving Cars ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

The other day, someone was telling me how they had been stuck in their schtick. They didn’t like it but they also couldn’t get out of it, until someone helped them dismantle it. Afterwards they felt lighthearted and free.

It’s reminiscent of how most people feel, going about their daily lives, feeling dissatisfied, discontent. They know they’re stuck but feel powerless to get unstuck.

Until they experience a shift in Consciousness, and open to a whole new experience of expansion and freedom.

Our bodies are our vehicles on this planet. It’s how we get to experience physical reality, and all the delicious sensations associated with it.

When we’re operating unconsciously, our bodies become self driving cars. They’re moving through their routines, they’re picking up all sorts of impressions and having all sorts of reactions.

If you look around you, and if you look at the news, reality is filled with self driving cars, with very little Consciousness occupying them.

And, at the same time, there’s an increasing amount of Consciousness coming into form nowadays. Which means all those cars are actually experiencing more Consciousness than ever before.

Which is why there seems to be greater collective freedom and empowerment AND greater outrage and atrocities than ever before.

It may seem like self driving cars don’t *want* Consciousness occupying them. They want to keep careening about, smashing into dead ends and each other.

And yet, when Consciousness fully embodies, they calm down, feel happy, feel taken care of.

Self driving cars think they won’t get what they want if they’re not driving themselves.
But what really happens is they get everything they need, and more.

When you start to steer as Consciousness, the journey looks very, very different. Instead of chasing after things that remain forever out of reach, or feel hollow to attain, reality starts to reorganize in your favor. What you want starts to appear in your life, without any effort.

Instead of a winning lotto ticket, you have a prosperous and abundant life. It *feels* like you’ve won the lotto. Instead of the perfect job, you have a rich and rewarding career. Instead of your ideal soul mate, you have fulfilling emotional partnership.

All you have to do is take your vehicle off of autopilot. Shift your perspective from your personality to yourself as Consciousness. Navigating life as your own greater Consciousness is a very subtle, but profound, inner realignment.

When you do this, your life unfolds beyond your mind’s wildest imagination.

Mystic Musings: “Playing Hooky From Life”

Playing Hooky From Life ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

When I was five, we moved to England. We hadn’t found a school for me when my brothers went off to their new institutions in late August. I remember pulling the curtains in the living room in the day time so the truant officers couldn’t see me playing hooky.

The Truant’s Log, R Hedley 1899′

Now, there probably weren’t truant officers in England, in the same way there were ones in the U.S. And I probably was only out of school for maybe a week, before I was enrolled in a girl’s private school. I was five, and starting kindergarten probably wasn’t as important as getting my brothers into appropriate middle and high schools.

Looking back, that whole experience was a huge shift in reality. I wasn’t playing hooky, I was transitioning from one universe to another one. From suburban Maryland to the city of London. From running through backyards barefoot, to school uniforms and lace up shoes.

When I was fifteen, I lived in Canada. The teachers went on strike for 3 months in the middle of my grade 10. I wasn’t exactly playing hooky during that time, as school wasn’t happening. But I learned there were options and choices.

It was another huge shift in reality. It disrupted my path. If that hadn’t happened, I would have gone in an obedient pattern through high school and college. Instead, after 2 1/2 years of high school, I went to college early. After 2 semesters of college, I went back to London at 18 and auditioned for drama school. I spent a year in drama school before being culled, moved back to the States… eventually ending up in a Mystery School in Seattle which set me on my true life path.

The point of this isn’t my education. The point is about playing hooky from life, taking a break from expectations of what we’re supposed to do so that we can reflect on what we want to do. So that we can make choices and take actions as greater Consciousness rather than just responding to what we “should” be doing.

These shoulds, these expectations, these supposed tos, are so deeply ingrained, they’re invisible to us. We can’t see how we’re running off patterns that were installed generations back.

Sometimes it seems like life creates a pattern interrupt, moving you to a different country and culture, or distrupting a school year, setting into motion a series of events that puts you on a different life and career path than you thought possible.

And you can create your own breaks, whether it’s a day a week or longer. To stop doing your regular routine and what’s expected of you. To get your head clear to know what your heart is calling you to do. How your Essence wants to be expressed in this world. What you as Consciousness wants to experience instead.

We are scared to do this because it feels like our whole life may collapse, and we’ll lose parts that are important to us. Yet when we do this as Consciousness, it can result in a gentle rearranging of reality, or finding your life falls into place more perfectly that you can imagine.

My experience of embodying Consciousness is that it’s a lot less painful than forcing yourself to conform so that your parents can understand your choices, for example.

Consciousness is much more benevolent than society. Take a day off and discover how munificent this Universe really is.

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.
