Mystic Musings: How Can You Get Ready Before You’re Ready?

How Can You Get Ready Before You’re Ready? ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

There some huge energetic changes in store for 2019. How can you get ready for them when you’re still in 2018?

I’m back in the Northwest for a month before returning to Queens, NY to continue helping my brother recover from a stroke.

It’s a huge growth space.

I’m still decompressing from the intense physical and emotional work I’ve been doing. And yet there are things I need to set in place while I’m here, so that I can continue with my business into the next year.

It may seem counter-intuitive to schedule activities before you feel ready, and yet that’s exactly how you get yourself ready as well.

Think of it as you as Consciousness taking care of your future self.

This can be in tiny ways. When I left my brother’s in New York, I stuffed my purse full of Earl Grey tea bags, only to discover I’d left myself a nearly full box from my previous visit.

It can be in major ways as well. I had a conversation recently with a woman who was struggling with maintaining her career while caring for two elderly parents. She had no children herself and her career not only supported herself, but ensured her retirement (caring for her future self).

In my present frame of mind, I just want to spend the next four weeks in bed drinking earl grey tea and looking at Facebook. And yet as I write that, I feel a stirring of discontent.

Because it’s only my body-personality that wants to stay in bed, that can’t imagine interacting with people because it can’t imagine beyond this present moment.

My mind is a sneaky bugger that also wants to convince me to take no action because, as Consciousness, navigating reality is done improvisationally. Stay in bed, that’s responding to the present moment, it says.

So there’s some truth to not preplanning because it could just be your mind wanting to control your future.

How to stay open to possibilities, and yet also set yourself in motion for them to happen.

This reality is full of polarities. That’s what makes it so delicious.

Consciousness is creating this reality for the joy of having physical experiences. That is all. It doesn’t matter to Consciousness whether those experiences feel good or bad, are long or short in duration. It’s all about the experience. And Consciousness’ impulse is to create, to express itself in form.

When we line up with ourselves as Consciousness, we are in agreement with whatever is happening in the moment. When we make choices and take actions as Consciousness, then the resulting experiences feel fun or pleasant or at the very least “right”.

So as you look towards 2019, you can put things on your calendar, and set things in motion, that you as your 2018 self may not feel ready for. But that you as infinite Consciousness have already embraced.

Try this and see what unfolds for you!

Mystic Musings: In A Holographic Reality, Can You Work With Nature ?

F 0 Comments

In a Holographic Reality, Can You Work With Nature? ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

I’ve recently begun revisiting (and upgrading) my old techniques for working with Nature. I have a coaching client that’s moved to a rural property, and we’re connecting with the devas of the house and land.

It’s a different experience for me since I’ve shifted to 5D reality. Somehow shifting through parallel universes seem incongruous with co-creating with nature. Expanding and contracting time seems contradictory with acknowledging the solstice and equinox cycles.But here’s the thing – everything exists at once, all games exist simultaneously. You can easily shift from one paradigm to the other, if you choose. Yet I know from experience that my old energy techniques don’t work effectively in this new reality. And I don’t really want to feel that level of density and effort again.When I upgrade my old techniques into the present moment, everything shifts and changes. It’s like going from dialup to WiFi.

My old way of working with Nature required a script and flower essences. And a journal, because I’d write down what I perceived that I heard. I’d kinesiology check my answers.Working with Nature from 5D is simple, clear, and easy. It’s intuitive and playful. It doesn’t require elaborate rituals, candles, flower essences, incantations. It’s pure, direct, Consciousness-to-Consciousness communication.

I made a lot of mistakes with my old way of working, as I didn’t know the right questions to ask, or I’d charge off doing it the way I thought was better.
As Consciousness, I’m curious, inquisitive, and improvisational. There aren’t any mistakes. In fact, when my mind doesn’t know what the fuck I’m doing, that’s when the miracle happens.
In my evolution to 5D, I struggled as my old paradigm collapsed, and there was a time that everything felt unreal. It was me as Consciousness but that was it.
The struggle was my body-personality’s. It felt alone. The world was like a movie set.
As more integration happens, I can appreciate more of the nuances that go into making up the physical realm.
Even on a movie set, there are extras and production crew. It’s all Consciousness, but we can enjoy the variety of ways we manifest in form (and in non physical).

You can start by acknowledging the sentience in Nature. Say hello to trees. Notice that they say hello back. Everything has sentience because everything is Consciousness. Your home has sentience.
You can make up your own ways of working with Nature. One of the most potent things you can do it bring your awareness of the surroundings into present time, which releases all past human emotions.
Being in Consciousness is being fully Present, so you can do this instantaneously. It’s not about changing, fixing, or manipulating the surroundings. The power is in changing your awareness.
When you change your awareness, reality changes.
Try this, this week and see what happens!

Mystic Musings: Our Fascination With Story

F 0 Comments

Our fascination with story ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

We are addicted to the news, TV series, books, and Social Media. We can’t get enough of stories about people’s lives. What is up with that?

Part of my story, Rego Park, Queens, NY

On one level there’s escapism from our own story. Our lives feel frustrating and painful. We find relief looking at other people’s lives, real and fictional. If they’re having a harder time than we are, our lives aren’t so bad. If they’re doing better than we are, it can give us hope. The possibility is out there to succeed or solve our problems.

On a greater level, however, it’s our innate instinct as Consciousness. As Consciousness we’re creating our particular life story but also as Consciousness we’re creating *all the stories* that are, was, and will be. 

Now, Consciousness doesn’t perceive things in a linear fashion, it’s all happening at once, simultaneously and instantaneously. Through our body, our physical vehicle, we take in the stories from the perspective of time and space. We learn stories as history, we watch current stories as news, we imagine future stories as fiction of some sort.

Our fascination with story is centered in our creativity as Consciousness. We have a continuous impulse to create in this world. We are so creative that our individual timelines aren’t enough, we have to write books or read them, we have to learn how other people do things in the physical realm as well.

We see other evidence of our creativity as Consciousness, from playing with model trains, designing fish tanks, gardening, and online games of the same ilk.  We’re mimicking in the physical what the part of us that is nonphysical effortlessly brings into form.

The desire to escape is the body-personality aspect of us, that feels powerless over the story, that wants to change, fix and improve it. It’s the mind machine that wants to be in control.

As Consciousness it’s a different impulse, it’s diving more deeply into the physical experience full of love and appreciation for all of it.

In escaping, you’re not really leaving discomfort of your life in order to feel better but to numb stop feeling anything at all.

In diving in as Consciousness, you’re embracing it, beyond the discomfort and conflicting feelings. As Consciousness you have an inherent love and appreciation for it all.

Where are you with your story? Where are you with your story in amongst everyone else’s story?

You needn’t run away, nor dive in. Just stand in the present moment, shift your perspective to that of Consciousness, and notice your reality reorganizing!

When Visions (and Intentions) are Limiting ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

F 0 Comments

Today’s a potent new moon, and apparently a great time to set intentions for manifesting by the Full moon. I always feel a sense of conflict nowadays between having a vision for the future and being in the present moment, accepting if not content with what is.

My experience as Consciousness in 5D shows me that being in present time feels expansive and unlimited. There’s no need to set intentions or create a vision for the future because you’re creating everything as Consciousness in the Now and it’s all unfolding in your (and everyone’s) favor.

The part of me that wants to set intentions and have a perfect vision is the part of me that thinks there’s something wrong with what is, and wants to manipulate and control outcomes so the results look just the way they’re ‘supposed’ to.

On the other hand, there is a level of reality that operates like a 3D printer and whatever you think about repetitively shows up in your life. If all you’re focused on is your dismal existence and can’t imagine anything better, you’re going to keep experiencing things dismally.

It doesn’t have anything to do with intentions, but it does have to do with focus. When you’re viewing things through the lens of your mind machine, from the level of thought, everything is going to look like a problem that needs fixing.

When you shift your identification and focus to that as Consciousness, everything is going to look like a fun creation to play in or play with.

As Mind-Body-Personality, you’re a helpless drone in this world is one of density and effort. Your mind can only create in reaction to whatever has already happened.

As Consciousness, you’re a kid in a candy store. When you consider your future as Consciousness, it’s a Disney World of possibilities.

It’s all fun, and play, and choices, and options.

It isn’t a matter of changing your mindset, or raising your awareness. You can easily and effortlessly step through a door to a Parallel Universe where it’s unfolding in your favor. You don’t even have to look for the right door, you don’t need to perform specific rituals, you don’t have to be perfect in any way.

When you do this, it’s infinitely subtle and distinctly profound. And what results is beyond your wildest imagination, something you could never have thought possible.

Mystic Musings: Breathing Into Expansion

Breathing Room ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Someone I follow just sent out their newsletter apologizing for “dropping off the face of the earth”. To be honest, I hadn’t noticed. I knew they were moving from a tropical island to a place in Europe where they could ski year round. That alone takes time and energy.

They explained that they needed time to integrate the change, and that they’d dropped everything, even their regular writing, as it was happening. Brilliant.

We need time to reorient within, before looking at our next steps.

This period of time has been relentless with continual transformations. We barely have time to breath before the next adjustment is required of us.

What’s been going on for all of us collectively is huge. Our greater Consciousness is coming more into form. To our body, it feels an enormous expansion.

It may have shown up as really challenging situations that required you to release things, belief systems, and relationships you were very attached to. Anything restrictive may still be in the process of being removed. It may have been very painful. At the very least, it might be an identity shift.

What was going on energetically was an internal renovation. Our old system couldn’t accommodate the increased vibration.

It reminds me of when butterflies emerge from their cocoon. They need to let their wings dry before they fly.

You’ve just gone through this metamorphosis. You have no idea how this new energy body works. Take a moment to feel into it.

Last Wednesday, we aired our last show of Conscious Conversations With Joan and Janet. The contract with the station had come to an end and my current circumstances don’t allow for regularly broadcasting a live show.

Now part of me wants to just jump into podcasting. To fill up that Wednesdays at 11am PT time slot.

Being a radio show host has been a part of my identity since 2009. It’s something everyone understood when they asked me “what do you do”.

What would it be like to not do that? To let there be that space. To see what emerges from the void.

And this blog – I’ve been consistently publishing it and my newsletter for years. What would it be like to skip a week? To go on hiatus?

I’m not sure that’s what I’ll do, but I am noticing the need to allow for something different. To not push forward as the mind, body-personality, wants to do. To navigate intuitively, as Consciousness, and let the next steps emerge.

I’m excited to see what happens!

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.
