Manifesting In The New Consciousness

Manifesting In The New Consciousness ©2017 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

I recently created a scenario which seemed to require conscious manifesting. In the old days I would have written about it, vision boarded it, affirmed it, put it in a pink balloon, two pointed to where ever it already exists, and, yes, stepped through doors to parallel universes where it’s already happening.

Because yeah, man, I’m an expert and I already know this stuff.

And I didn’t do any of those things. I created something that afternoon that wasn’t quite the thing. I sat with it, and watched other possibilities unfold. This required interacting with others in my storyline, and dances with relationships.

It was (and is) very interesting to see what is coming into form. And very interesting to see my discomfort with not being entirely in control of the creation.

It’s still not fully in form. The agreements are still being drawn up. And Mercury is going retrograde on Saturday!

But something bigger is unfolding, beyond what I can imagine, and a part of me is excited to be stepping into the unknown, to having something more that what my mind wants to design.

There’s so much potential for drama and disagreements. And yet all that dissipates when I don’t resist what is.

Manifesting in the new Consciousness is the opposite of how it was before. It isn’t about changing, fixing, or manipulating the circumstances. It’s not about claiming power and declaring it to the Universe. It’s not about specifics and time limits.

All of that was Ego/Personality/Mind wanting to control the outcome. The part that is fearful, the part that feels powerless, the part that is based in survival.

Consciousness is creating all of this. You are Consciousness. You’re creating all of this. All possibilities exist within this creation. You are dancing between possibilities.

It’s all good, because as Consciousness, you love your creations, you love your Self that is playing in this field of reality.

Playing this way you totally know it’s a benevolent You-niverse. Wherever you fall, you are being caught.

There are no mistakes, because all possibilities are running simultaneously and you chose this one in the moment. Things can transform themselves, when you play at this level, when you expand to a different outcome.

Manifesting in the new Consciousness is about creating, not control. This is a playground, we are here to create, it’s all about creating and being creative.

As Consciousness you are benignly neutral. There’s no good or bad to what you create. If you manifest disasters, it’s equally as creative as manifesting miracles. If you want to create something different it’s a very subtle shift in direction.

It’s incredibly freeing to let go of control, and to go forward completely improvising as things come up.

Creating as Consciousness allows you to manifest beyond your wildest imagination.

I’m writing this from a hotel room next to the Yakima River. It’s a scorching day in August, yet the river it running full and strong. I’m not used to rivers, I live in the Puget Sound, which has tides that flow and ebb along the shore.

The river reminds me of our experience of time in this physical reality. Time flows, from past to future. When I meditated on this, while looking at the river, I saw myself standing still, wanting to walk upstream, wanting to let the river take whatever I wanted to release.

It illustrates my resistance to going with the flow. It shows that I’m facing the past (upstream). The current of time is continually moving us forward, down the river. As Consciousness focused into form, we cannot cling to the river bank.

It also illustrates how, in this new reality, everything is the opposite of what is was before. My old focus would have been to stay anchored in one spot, and to release energy that way. When I see myself as Consciousness flowing down the river, I see that past energy is released in every moment. It’s not even an issue. It is gone, and the continuous flow is the present moment.

My body feels unnerved with the prospect of releasing its grip on the bank. It doesn’t feel exhilarated by the flowing water (as it may have when I was younger). It anticipates drowning, which is not fun.

But when I gently cradle it in my loving energy as Consciousness, it allows the flow to happen. I feel the shift in energy. I relax into the continuous change that is always available.

Nothing is truly lost, nothing is really left behind, it is put into it’s proper placement in the storyline, it is stored in the Cosmic Cloud. No one is really gone, nor abandoned, we are all still connected as Consciousness.

Consciousness exists outside of time and space. The flow of time is just one of the elements that construct this reality. It keeps the story moving along, it’s the background music that helps propel our personal game of life.

We are bigger than our story, we are bigger than the river, we are Consciousness that encompasses it all. When you identify as Consciousness within form, this all becomes an enjoyable activity, even if we’ve hit a patch of white water and are rolling over rocks.

When you hold a bigger space in your life, as you effortlessly do as Consciousness, it is easy to cast off the bowlines and go into the current, towards everything you’ve dreamed and desired.

How To Handle The Waves of Change ©2017 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

F 0 Comments

Wow, this is an intense time. So many things are coming at us. We have to handle multiple things at once. There’s no time to rest. There’s certainly no sleep at night!!

Now, some people may find this exhilarating. They may feel on top of their game. Yay, them.

Most folks are finding this challenging and overwhelming. If this is you, even though your circumstances are unique, you’re not alone!

What is happening is that Greater Consciousness is coming into form. This is stirring things up.

This will show up in your life in situations or relationships provoking feelings of conflict, resistance, pain, fear, anger, or just wanting to sleep all day!

How to handle these waves of change?

You can fight it. This might be energizing to some. It may keep them from being paralyzed with fear. It might help them break through to the next experience. Or it might get you more enmeshed in it.

You can pretend it’s not happening. This is a different tactic. Just keep going to work and home and act as if nothing unusual is going on. Fake it ’til you make it. This strategy is useful to some folks, a way to hunker down and get through it. However this can also backfire, the situation can accelerate until you have to pay attention to it!

You can ride with it.  Life is like kayaking, sometimes we hit white water, grab hold of your paddles! This is a great way not to resist and ‘go with the flow’ no matter how fast and rough it may seem.

You can dive through the waves. If you’re standing in the water at the beach and the wave seems too big, just dive through it! You’d be surprised how quick you get to the other side.

Old patterns are breaking down. Situations that don’t serve are either going away or getting worse. It’s an opportunity for you to try something new or different, or put into practice what you already know.

However it’s on the way to getting better. You could come out of this time period completely transformed! Don’t resist the ride.

If you really, really want things to be different, this is your chance to change things! Portals of change are opening and are everywhere. All you have to do stay is stay alert, and step through them!

How To Deal With The “New Normal”

How To Deal With The “New Normal” ©2017 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

One of my neighbors stopped me on my walk and offered condolences. “Emma’s died?” She and her husband had seen us carrying her out to the lawn in her last days.

When she came back from the vet, after her biopsy, she’d stopped walking. So we carried her outside twice a day. It wasn’t all that different from before, since she’d like to sleep most of the day anyway. It was a “new normal”.

She was too heavy for me to lift and at some point my husband hurt his back, so we both lifted her using the four corners of the towel that we had under her. I found myself singing the song from Aladdin as she went on a ‘magic carpet ride’ to the outside world. Corgis are always smiling, but she grinned even more as she could feel the fresh air and smell all the smells.

This concept of it being a ‘new normal’ had helped me when my mother, after 10 months on home hospice, stopped walking and became bedridden. She had Alzheimer’s and cancer, and the blessing was that she didn’t know she had either. She wondered why she stayed in bed all the time. “Oh, you always like to sleep a lot.” I said. Which was true, she had hated me getting her up in the morning and now I didn’t have to…

Now the new normal is that Emma is gone and we’re putting off getting another dog. We’re cherishing being able to sleep in on weekends and go out for dinner without having to walk someone.  I did, however, get a new fish, which I call “Puppy”, so I can say that I did get one.

It occurred to me that we’re hitting “new normals” all the time, even if they’re not healthy.  People are getting numb from the news, the emotional roller coaster of deliberately inflammatory and distracting tweets, of human rights being systematically dismantled and withdrawn.

There’s always a pendulum swing in politics and at some point this will all reverse itself. And as Consciousness, I see what is really happening is that those who seem most powerful, are actually the least. And they are scrambling to restore a paradigm that has already disintegrated. We are have evolved as Consciousness, are embodying more of ourselves as Consciousness, so we are all already individually too empowered to go back to that antiquated acceptance of domination.

It hit me that we’re stepping into a new existence, which requires us to expand to a new normalcy. Energetically it feels lighter. We’re used to feeling weighed down, that being more powerful means occupying more physical space.

When you embody more of yourself as Consciousness, it feels buoyant. When you feel empowered, it feels more internally powerful. It actually feels effortless and relaxed. Standing in your own power feels confident, because as Consciousness you *are* wisdom. There’s an absence of a need to dominate or compete because we’re *all* Consciousness.

It starts by focusing within, because our bodies are our anchor points as Consciousness into this physical realm. However, we’re operating at a higher frequency than ever before, so it really only requires a focal point, a pinpoint of Consciousness, to bring you fully aware into form. And it can be anywhere within. I used to have rigid opinions about where this should be and how it should be done. Rigidity is the old normal.

Try this for yourself. Wirelessly connect as Consciousness into form, and notice what’s different. That’s your new normal. Doing this regularly has a ripple effect into the rest of your reality. Play with this during the week and see what happens!

Getting Out of Your Discomfort Zone

Getting Out of Your Discomfort Zone ©2017 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

One of the things I’ve discovered, as everything is breaking down and reorganizing, is that often what is required is the complete opposite of whatever has worked before.

Tried and true techniques and systems are no longer effective. Things that were absolutely the wrong thing to do in my old practice is the absolute right thing to do in my new practice.

So, for instance, something has been going on today – I’ve been feeling a very high, vibrational frequency in/on the top of my head. In the old days I would have judged this as bad. I would have thought someone was invading my space. I would have wrestled with this energy all day long.

Now, what it feels like isn’t bad. Nor is it invasive. I’m not really sure what it is. Is it a female energy in my head? Or is it a download of something new? Heck, maybe it’s just that I’ve been drinking jasmine green tea today instead of earl grey.

In the old days I would have absolutely had to know where it’s coming from and what to do about it.

Instead, I’ve just gone about my day, noticing what is different. And pretty much everything about today has been different, starting with this energy. I’m curious to see what unfolds from this.

What this reminds me of, is someone who went to one of my Meetups and did the walking through doors to parallel universes. The next day I talked with her, she’d taken medicine for vertigo. “Is it unpleasant?” I asked.  Turned out it wasn’t vertigo, but that wavy feeling of expansion that happens when you play on this level of Consciousness.

A couple went to my cohost Janet’s meetup in Portland, and then they went dancing afterwards. Her husband had a difficult time because he felt too ‘lightheaded’. Hmm. Not really surprising after major transformational energy work.

Rather than resisting or turning away from new sensations, I turn towards them. I move more deeply into something rather than trying to get it out of my space.

Moving through the world in this new way of being requires being improvisational. Requires not knowing. Requires curiosity.

If something isn’t working for you, then it’s time to do something else. But don’t mistake discomfort as an indicator that something is wrong.

Birthing a new self doesn’t have to be hard. Just breathe through it. Sometimes action is required, but sometimes that may look like taking a walk. Or a nap. Maybe it’s just to stop doing whatever it is that isn’t working, and wait to see what emerges instead.

When you stop trying to make things fit within your comfort zone, then what manifests can be bigger than you can imagine.

Why Inspiration From Seminars Doesn’t Last (and what to do about it) ©2017 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Remember that last seminar, workshop or retreat you attended? Remember how wonderful it felt? What happened to that rosy glow after you came home? It kinda faded off, didn’t it?

You got back into your daily routine, with work and relationships, and pretty soon you could barely remember all that marvelous transformation that happened, and all those great revelations you had.

That’s why it’s called ‘The Suntan Affect’.

Seminars, workshops, and retreats are chock full of great information, they’re designed to inspire change. While you’re sitting there with a group, you feel a magnified effect from everyone going through the same experience.

When you come home, however different you may feel at first, you start to match your familiar surroundings and go back to your old ways of being.

It’s especially frustrating when you learned new techniques to make things happen, and even they seem to lose their magic after a while.

When I used to teach Psychic Meditation classes, I’d tell people that you could get all these tools and concepts in a weekend workshop, but it’s a little like learning golf in one afternoon. The reason to take an 8 or 12 week class is that repetition helps make it real for your body.

You as Consciousness already know everything. You *are* the Cosmic Internet. But not everything is stored into your physical form (that includes your mind and brain). Whatever was downloaded from a weekend doesn’t stick unless you continue to put it into action.

The other thing that an 8 or 12 week class provides is the power of a group. You’re with others who are learning the same things, and their experiences reinforce yours as well.

Most importantly, you have continued access to the teacher, who embodies and models whatever it is you want to learn. Regular contact with them helps make it real for you as well.

When I teach, I have you try any technique first before explaining what it’s supposed to do or how you’re supposed to feel. This way you have your own sense of what a particular technique can do for you. People have come away from my trainings with greater ownership of what they’ve learned, because it’s anchored in their initial experience rather than my information about it.

Nowadays, I combine my teaching with coaching. I prefer coaching, because it holds you as whole and capable. It honors your inner wisdom. If you have a problem, then you hold the solution within. As coach I can ask the right questions to bring it out of you. This allows you to change faster than if you were told to do something (thereby having to go through someone else’s information) which then takes longer before you’ve integrated it into your own way of doing things.

Rather than one-off sessions, I prefer to offer 12 week programs (although for groups I’ve had them as short as 6-8 weeks). This way I can hold space for your evolution over time.

As Consciousness you already know everything, you just haven’t brought it into your body yet or practiced utilizing the information through your body. Even though I provide my upgraded and developed techniques for transformation, You’ll have your own unique way of expressing your new learning, you’ll bring your own unique results into your life.

Now, if you’ve just come from a seminar or workshop and there isn’t any followup in place, you can try to create continuity on your own. Read the presenter’s books, watch their YouTube videos, join (or create) a Meetup group to connect with others on the same topic.

And, if you are tired of spinning your wheels and want lasting change in your life, go to my website and check out my coaching programs!
