Mystic Musings: Fearlessness

F 0 Comments

Fearlessness ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

What would you do, if you weren’t afraid to do it? Who would you be if you weren’t afraid of what others would think?

Fear is a tricky thing, it masquerades as anger, vagueness, sleepiness, or even perfectionism. What it does, however, is keep us frozen, stuck, or spinning our wheels.

I never acknowledged feeling fearful until I was about 40, and if you look at my younger life, some of the things I did were incredibly brave. But it wasn’t until later in life, as a parent with children dependent on me for their own survival, that I acknowledged feeling fear.

It’s amazing what we do out of fear, we run from relationships or we rush into them. We leave jobs, or we stay in them too long. Or we rage, which gives the energy not to be paralyzed, a “deer in headlights”, but often ends up destroying that which we were fearful of losing.

And here’s the thing – fear doesn’t exist at the level of Consciousness.  It’s totally a creation of the physical realm. It’s your body and the attached personality that experiences fear.  Your body-personality reacts to anything that moves it beyond it’s comfort zone as a threat. Even if it’s good for you. Your body can’t conceive of anything it hasn’t experienced. So even if it’s what it thinks it wants, it may not be able to handle it.

When you’re aligned as Consciousness, your little will to your greater Will, then you’re in total agreement with everything that is going on. In the present moment, there’s total balance and
acceptance.

When you’re in the present moment, fear dissipates. The body isn’t being forced ahead of itself, nor is it stuck in a past that it cannot change. In the present moment you can make choices and take action, initiate changes.

You aren’t your body or your personality. You are Consciousness, you are Presence. When you’re fully embodied, your body can relax. You as Consciousness can take care of things, and knows exactly what to do.

And often you find, when you’re in Presence, that you already have what you thought you needed, that you never lost that which you thought you’d die without.

Mystic Musings: Time, Energy, and Money

F 0 Comments

Time, Energy, and Money ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

My husband took the week off from work, before letting me know. I had a Telesummit scheduled for Tuesday, and my radio show Wednesday, plus my regular calls and meetings, so my calendar was super busy.

I work from home and it was challenging to maintain my focus with him being in ‘staycation mode’. I made it through the Telesummit but when my radio show co-host suggested that we air a rerun rather than a live show, I heartily agreed.

In Port Townsend, the house behind us is haunted!

After completing my regular calls Thursday, hubby and I took a “daycation” up to historic Port Townsend, and yet on the way I had this nagging feeling I was playing hooky – that I should be working.

Now here’s the thing, I work for myself, I work from home, my schedule is entirely my own. No one’s gonna fire me for taking a day off.

I decided to record our show live on Wednesdays (although we do have to fit into an available spot in our radio station’s lineup), I decide I write my blog and send out my Ezine on Fridays. I choose to host Meetups on Saturdays or Sundays, I usually film my YouTube videos on Tuesdays (although the last two weeks I didn’t, due to the upcoming Telesummit).

True Confessions: NONE of these activities actually PAY ME. They’re all designed to support, help and enlighten others. And if someone decides to hire me for coaching, great.

Ironically, a lot of people I work with have money issues. When we shine a light on them, it often reveals they have trouble with their focus on time, and how they spend their energy.

Sometimes they have six figure incomes, but are miserable. They either hate their jobs, or hate their commutes. Or they’re spinning their wheels trying to make an income, feeling like they’re going nowhere. They struggle with compulsive spending, credit cards, or underearning and deprivation.
They have confusion about the money or debt they do have, and vagueness about where their time is going.

As they gain clarity about their numbers and their actions, their circumstances rapidly improve. They feel feel more prosperous and abundant with less effort and stress. Because it actually isn’t about the money, it’s about the quality of their lives and relationships.

I spend my time and energy in ways that prioritize my relationships with my husband and now adult kids. I make choices based on my expanded perspective as Consciousness. I have a prosperous life and feel wealthy with my relationships.

My coach describes his schedule as “fiercely lifestyle friendly”, which basically means that if it’s going to compromise his values, he isn’t going to do it.

I suspect he uses the word ‘fiercely’ because of the enormous morphic “work ethic” field that says you have to put in long hours, with a lot of effort and sacrifice in order to create a good life.

That nagging feeling I had yesterday? I was reacting to the same message, same morphic field.

As with anything in this world, the opposite is true.

The harder you try to attain something, the farther away it will be. Effort kills creativity. We give up so much power to these ‘work ethic’ ideals and completely miss the point that we’re Infinite Beings and this world is our playground.

Realize that *you* are Consciousness and all the power is within you, not out there.

If you work a job-job, try being there as Consciousness, and see how it alters the experience for you. You may find it being more playful and fun.

If you’re looking work, try approaching the interviews as Consciousness, and see how the dynamic changes.

Try prioritizing what’s important to you, rather than what you think the world thinks is important, and watch how rapidly your life reorganizes in your favor.

When you use your time and energy as the infinitely creative and powerful Consciousness that you are, your world transforms.

Play with this for the next 7 days, and see what happens!

Mystic Musings: You Can’t Game The System

You Can’t Game The System ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

It really annoys me when someone says “Make it a great day” – or words to that effect. The more skill I gain from living consciously, the less ability I have to “make” things happen.

And I used to teach people how to create their reality, essentially Law of Attraction before Esther Hicks began channeling Abraham.

What is *your* inner Napoleon like?

When you try to make it a great day, it implies that the day needs making great. That the day wasn’t great to begin with. That you need to *do* something to make that day great. Make the day great again.

Someone could argue it’s about making up your mind that the day will be great. That it’s about your mindset. That you can control the day through your thoughts and your actions.

Can’t you feel the energy of force and contraction? That’s the opposite of openness and expansion.

When we try to make something happen from our mind alone, it’s our inner Napoleon trying to control everything. It’s the little will, the personality part of you, that thinks it’s the sole creator of reality.

Basically it takes essential truths and distorts them. Very sneaky.

Because Consciousness creates reality, you as Consciousness create your reality, but you’re not the only expression of Consciousness, you’re the sole expression of You as Consciousness. With full awareness and appreciation of all the other aspects of Consciousness expressing in form as well.

What happens to me is that I go through a shift in Consciousness, I experience expansion in my life, I find myself at a new level of awareness. Things I felt were solid and real collapse or dissipate, techniques I relied upon stop working. I “upgrade” them (each time they become more subtle with more profound – and more unpredictable – results).

And then my inner Napoleon creeps in and tries to game the system. Because I’ve been doing this work for 37 years, and I’m an expert.

But systems don’t work any more, if they ever did. When you try to make reality that way, there will always be a glitch or a loophole. No matter how perfect your mindset or vision board or repetitive affirmations, your 3 D printer will have gravel in it or a software error.

So I hit a plateau, spend time spinning my wheels, shadow boxing Consciousness, until my current version of Napoleon gets exiled to Elba, and expansion mystically and magically begins again.

When I stand perfectly still, everything in this moment is perfect. There is nothing to want or need. This life is amazing, this world is stunningly beautiful. All is as it should be. All is very, very well.

And then I look at Twitter. Or get triggered on Facebook. Propelled somewhere other than Now.

And no, I’m not on my way to India with my mother’s ashes. And no, we don’t own our own home on Vashon Island… and no, not everyone in my life is living happily ever after (in their current form or story line).

This reality is unfolding out of infinite possibilities, beyond our mind’s ability to imagine. As Consciousness you are immensely complex and multifaceted – what gets manifested comes from You as True Creative Essence, You as Highest Source. It’s already perfect and becoming more so in every moment.  There is no do or try.

People forget that Abraham-Hicks stresses the Art of Allowing. Allow it a great day.

Mystic Musings: Are You Creating Reality As A Stick Figure?

F 0 Comments

Are You Experiencing Reality As A Stick Figure? ©2018 Joan Newcomb

How are you experiencing reality? Does it feel very extreme, very black-and-white, intense drama, reactivity? Or do you have breathing space, clarity, balance, choice?

On a walk this week I mused about reality and manifestation.  When I’m aligned and connected, my surroundings come into sharp focus.  Greens seem greener, trees are more defined.  I get the sense of walking through this physical reality and it’s more profoundly ‘real’ but on a multi-dimensional level.

There’s a belief that this reality is a full-immersion video game, that we’re walking around in these meat suits, but we’re making it all up.  It goes so far as to imply that others in our reality aren’t real, we created them to be there.

Are you experiencing your reality as a stick figure?

As an empath, I had difficulty with this, because I can feel other people’s feelings, even if they’re 3,000 miles away.  They are sharing their emotional reality with me, and I know it’s not mine.

Even though I have a higher awareness, I can easily feel entangled in intensity and drama, extreme emotions, if I’m experiencing other’s reality. If I resist it, I get more stuck in it. If I can detach, I can feel compassion for their challenges, and send healing.

But the ‘I create my own reality, and nothing is real, including other people’ didn’t work for me, at least in the cartoonish way it was presented.

It also says that there is no free will, we’re all going along predetermined scripts, so stop trying to change, fix, or control things.  This didn’t quite feel true to me, either.

Technology has advanced in the years since I first heard this idea, and we now have on-line gaming and Wii.

And while I’ve been musing, two videos came to my attention.  The first one was Bill Nye (“The Science Guy”) talking about creationism vs. evolution.  Creationism can be very black and white, very limiting.  God created everything, God put us here, full stop.

It’s a one dimensional explanation for a multi-dimensional world.

The second video was Neil deGrasse Tyson saying the most astounding fact is that our molecules and atoms are made up of the same elements from the beginning of the Universe.

As I listened to the second video, which really described evolution from the initial creation of the Universe, I realized that it was taking Creationism’s stick figure explanation and giving it width and depth and length.

Sometimes Science, however, leaves out the aspect of Consciousness, which gives their theories color and tone.

When we were collectively operating from a lower level of awareness, we could only understand things from a stick-figure perspective.  What was written in ancient texts was complex ideas put  forth in a simplistic fashion, much like how you would talk to a child about college level subjects.

‘I created my reality, nothing is real, including other people, there is no free will, it’s all pre-scripted’ is too simplistic as well.

Reality is a complex creation of Consciousness, a game with infinite levels of possibilities.  You can play it any way you want.  There is free will, just like a Gamer has choices of taking different actions and it changes the outcome of their playing session.  There are other Gamers in the equation, which makes the whole experience much more interesting.

It’s not just you in your own studio composing on a synthesizer, but an orchestra of musicians each contributing their piece.

And yet, on a higher level, it is.  As Consciousness, you’ve put forth the elements, but you’ve also created individuals to run around and bang their own symbols.  You are both Consciousness and the symbol-banger.  You are both the Programmer and the Gamer.

However, in your ‘meat-suit’, there’s only so much you can comprehend.  The more immersed you are in the denseness of physical reality, the less you can be attuned to the greater world.

In my early metaphysical training, there was distain for intellectualism.  In many religious belief systems there’s an aversion to the Mind.  It’s true that the intellect/Mind can distance you from spiritual Truth, but it’s the same distortion as *lack* of intelligence saying Creationism is the only reality.

Consciousness in an Intelligence greater than your own brain, greater than your individual mind.  It’s the Internet vs. your hard drive.  God is not a jealous or limiting or punishing god.  God is Consciousness.

And it’s not all just atoms and molecules and fishes with feet.  The invisible reality beyond that which is measurable, is Consciousness.

Consciousness brings both dichotomies together.  Because Consciousness transcends time and space, so from that perspective you could say there’s no evolution, but only because it’s all happening at once (no time).

If, while you are walking along a street, you could shift your vibration to a lower speed, you could see what occurred on that street in the past.  If you could raise your vibration to a higher speed, you could see what will be happening on that same sidewalk in the future.

Your meat suit can’t do that.  Your Consciousness can.

But don’t go there (unless you’re on your third espresso of the day).  You are Consciousness manifesting in this meat suit for the fun of experiencing this present moment in these parameters of density and effort.  When you die, you’ll realize your lifetime only a blink of an eye, that you always are Consciousness.  If you spend all your time going outside yourself to feel Spirit, you’ll miss the point of being here.

However, this Reality game is so big, it encompasses every belief and approach.  Just as there is no one True religion, nor definition of God, there’s no one right way to live life.

Go ahead an visualize, go ahead and use manifestation techniques.  Or let go of creating your reality and go with the script.  It’s all valid.

If you choose to be a fundamentalist, that’s the Game you’ll experience.  If you choose to be an atheist, that’s the reality you’ll have.  From the level of Consciousness, there is no good or bad (ethics only exist in the physical realm).

This week, I invite you to play with whatever works for you.  Just being playful can shift you out of extremes and reactivity. Try it for yourself. And see what happens!

Mystic Minute: Sand Mandalas and Spiritual Evolution

F 0 Comments

Sand Mandalas and Spiritual Evolution ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Yesterday I had the most amazing experience. I sat down and used Garage Band to record and edit a training that I’m offering on a Global Telesummit in a couple weeks. The thing is, I’ve had Garage Band on my laptop since 2011 (yes, it’s the same laptop, just with a new battery and hard drive), but I’ve never used it. When I first got it, the technology of Garage Band was way over my head.

But yesterday it was a breeze. But that’s because I’ve been recording and editing my YouTube videos for the last five years. Compared with video, audio is a breeze. It was thrilling.

When I had the recording complete, I decided to add music to it, and something happened. I don’t know what, but the entire recording disappeared. An entire afternoon’s work vanished.

I spent another hour trying to reproduce what I’d done to no avail (I had an outline but most of what I had talked about was improvised). I went from having the most productive day in months to… pffft.

What’s happening? It’s not Mercury Retrograde, for Pete’s Sake.

My Buddhist husband would say that it’s a lesson in the impermanence of life. And there’s something to that, because life does seem like a sand mandala sometimes. You spend all this time creating a reality, nurturing relationships, and then it all dissipates in the blink of an eye.

The more you try to hold on to your creations, the less you seem to have them.

What have I learned (besides making sure you save your work, especially in antiquated programs that don’t automatically do it for you)?

One thing that I know is that life is not a school and these situations aren’t “lessons”. They’re experiences. They can be redirects. And as I’m writing I also realize that the subject that I’m working on is an upgrade of a course I offered two years ago.

Old techniques don’t work any more. Or, they work as well as dialup does for accessing today’s internet. Perhaps yesterday’s erasure ensures that today’s recording will be more up to date?

Here’s the other thing that I know, the more I operate as Consciousness in form, the more improvisational reality becomes. Unexpected things happen.

So even as I’m trying to bring information into physical form, I need to let go of the outcome. Pretty friggin’ exasperating when under a deadline.

We’re going through a major expansion right now and it feels important to stay flexible. To be ready to pivot at any moment.

Reality is reorganizing. Rather than staying attached to what was, I’m curious to see what unfolds.

Because what is truly real never ceases to exist. It’s the story that changes, the scenery gets moved around, characters enter and exit the stage.

Stay centered as Consciousness, and you can enjoy it all.
