Mystic Musings: The Power of Words To Transform Your Life!

The Power of Words To Transform Your Life ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Words have power. What you call someone or something influences your experience, and can even influence them. We project energy and we receive energy from our surroundings.

It’s pretty obvious when you’re trudging around with negative thoughts, criticizing whatever you seen. You’re living in your own world of doom and gloom.

A picture’s worth a thousand words

Positive thinking works. Shifting your wording can shift your energetic experience.

On a more complex level, the words and terms your use carry historic patterns. There are words that use to be acceptable that we no longer use because they’re now offensive. We’ve become more mindful of our language.

In 1981, I was the Church secretary for a United Methodist Church. The female pastor would have me retype the hymns to use non sexist terms for God.

For many years it didn’t bother me to call God “He”. I grew up in a male dominated family, I felt I could hold my own around the term. But God as “Father” affected my spiritual experience. Father did not have my best interest at heart. It was not a benevolent universe.

Some people simply refer to God as “She”, and that brings in a different feeling. And yet that may not work for folks with mother issues.

Early on, I began calling it Universe because it didn’t have a gender. And made for a friendlier relationship with it. “Hey U” I’d say, having conversations rather than prayers.

But all of this was still outside myself. Something other than me. Although I knew I was Spirit there still was a hierarchy and Universe was outside and above.

At some point I realized I needed a new name, and Consciousness was what it felt like. When I use the term Consciousness, it feels expansive, it’s both me, within me, and all that is, externally.

For me, Consciousness has no other references. But many others think it just means “awareness”. Or Cosmic Consciousness, which to me has a historical connotation, from my early Mystery School training.

Now Awareness could be used instead of Consciousness and evoke the same feeling. For a while I’d used the term Essence, as in the Essence of who you are. Essence for me is internal. Consciousness encompasses all.

When I am identifying as Consciousness and navigating as Consciousness in my life, things reorganize in my favor. I feel lighthearted, amused, curious, excited, in love with life, in love with my ‘self’, in love with the world.

Notice for yourself if the terms you use need upgrading. Do they feel light and expansive and full of possibility? If not, simply trying out a different word can transform your entire life!

Mystic Musings: The New Way To Navigate!

The New Way To Navigate ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

My brother and I were in the laundry room of his apartment building in Queens, NY. All the washers were full but had finished their cycle. He said to take the wet clothes out of one so we could use it.

“Shouldn’t we wait to see if they come for it?” I asked.

“No,” he said. “It’s the New York way.”

So we did, and actually never saw anyone else in the laundry room during the time we were doing our wash.

It was an unusual experience for me because I’ve not used public laundry facilities for nearly 40 years. I have a different sense of space and ownership.

Their neighbor on their floor is an elderly woman whose television plays 24/7. Right next to my brother’s bedroom. The people upstairs keep unusual hours, you hear their shoes tromping above you at all times of the day and night.

Outside, New Yorkers have no trouble expressing themselves with their car horns and voices. They’ll honk when two cars ahead of them there’s a school bus.

It’s not my way. I don’t know how much of it is growing up in different countries and cultures, lead to my quietly navigating around and through. Or being empathic, I consider others when choosing my own actions.

In highly populated areas there’s a different experience of density and effort. On one hand it’s a mosaic of individuals and their radiant energies. On the other hand it’s a tangled snarl of opposing patterns.

The old paradigm of having boundaries in these circumstances would be to loudly express yourself, to physically dominate your location, to densify your personality to make your presence known.

There’s a different way to navigate all of this from 5D. You can own your space without dominance, without noise. You can be loud, as in joyfully singing your own music into the world. You can be present, and your Presence is inherently noticeable.

You can own your space calmly in the face of others reacting to your changing frequency.

You don’t have to match the energy of the crowd, nor do you need to resist it. You can expand your inner openness. In non-resistance, you let the energy pass through and dissipate.

Even as I know these things, I don’t always practice them perfectly. I’ve gotten angry here at a volume that would be offensive in Seattle and in New York, nobody blinks.  But I’ve also found the most potent way to be Presence on the subway is to smile.

Consciousness is shifting, our frequency is becoming lighter and more expansive. The rules for navigating are different on this level. There’s no clear guide book, as we’re all entering this brave new world somewhat together (and some kicking and screaming).

The old ways are effective in this new reality. We need to upgrade our old techniques, improvise and make stuff up.

New navigation is fun, experiential, done from a sense of play and curiosity. When you start to move through the world in these new ways, your entire life transforms.

Mystic Musings: Life Isn’t A School

Life Isn’t A School  ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

It’s a popular point of view, that Life is a school, that we’re here to learn lessons. Back in the early 1980’s, as a clairvoyant reader, I’d explain to my clients that past lives were like grades, and we access the information in our present life. Just as we don’t remember learning recognize letters or to spell, it all comes together when we start to type a letter.

As I shifted to a 5D perspective, I started to realize how inaccurate that concept was. And how many projections and distortions it creates. School is hard, so life is hard. In school, there are other people in charge of you(teachers and principals), and kids who are a grade ahead. So that must mean other people are in charge of you and other people are ahead of you.

Schools have exams. So life has tests. You don’t get ahead until you’ve learned your lessons. If something bad happen, you failed the test and have to take the class again.

It’s hard to give up the concept of life as a school. But when you begin to live life *as* Consciousness, it just doesn’t make sense any more. You become aware that you are infinite awareness and this reality is your creation to play in.

Early in my Consciousness shift, I described life as a playground. But playgrounds have games, and often there’s someone monitoring to make sure everyone is playing the rules.

As Consciousness, you are the Creator, and reality shifts and changes as you shift and change.

Now, your body/personality needed to learn things. It popped out helpless, unable to roll over or control it’s pee and poop. It needed to learn to walk, it needed to learn to write, it needed to learn the “rules” to be taken care of and to survive.

But you are not your body/personality, you are the greater Essence that created it to express in and experience this physical reality. Confusion reigns when you transpose or project your body/perspective onto yourself as Consciousness.

As your body, this world is density and effort. The predominant feelings are effort and fear.

As Consciousness, you’re aware of the bigger picture *and* aware of all possibilities. You effortlessly dance in any direction. The predominant feelings are joy and amusement.

As Consciousness there’s nothing for you to learn, you are the Cosmic internet, you are the infinite information source. It’s all about creating and experiencing.

From 5D, reality manifests and unfolds easily and effortlessly. Simply shift your awareness from your body/personality level to yourself as Consciousness and your entire world transforms!

Mystic Musings: Slogging Through Other People’s Density

Slogging Through Other People’s Density ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

I’ve had several nights this week where I’ve been awake for ages, feeling other realities waft through me. I’m able to discern they’re not mine, but I’m not fully able to pinpoint whose they are. But boy, some people are having a really difficult time!

Several people are crippled with anxiety. A couple folks are in the depths of despair. One gets me as they’re mired in resentment, and I can go there myself all too easily in the wee hours.

It’s almost always a loved one who’s emotional energy I tune into, they span 6,000 miles and several time zones. But I often forget about the most obvious one – my husband right beside me in bed.

A devout Buddhist, he has a practice of praying for people, so during his wakeful hours he’ll start thinking about different groups that are suffering. Which sounds oh so holy and lovely but for the empath next to him it’s pretty gruelling.

I’ll have no reference point or clue that he’s focusing on starving Sudanese, or someone who is ailing. But I’ll feel their emotional resonance.

It occurs to me that we’re all influenced by other people’s density, now more so than ever before. As we collectively go through the shift in Consciousness, our sensitivity is increasing. But our first reaction is to think it’s our own reality.

Certainly, feeling other people’s struggles colors our own experiences, but you don’t need to stay stuck in their stuff. It doesn’t help them to match their level of discomfort, and you can still have compassion while being detached.

Someone I know who is married to a psychic, created a technique for being able to sleep at night when his spouse is dealing with different vibrations. He uses an imaginary lead curtain (like the aprons they put on you at the dentist office when you’re having x-rays).

You can also imagine yours frequency to be a 1/2 step above the vibration you’re dealing with. It allows you to separate from the density without totally detaching.

If you’re visual, you can imagine your energy field to be a different color than theirs. If they’re a dark blue or grey, yours can be yellow or pink.

An ancient technique is to imagine a rose at the edge of your energy field, creating a defining line between your space and others’. I think of it like floats in a swimming pool that let you know where the deep end is.

Of course, at 2am I didn’t think about any of these suggestions, or I would have gotten a better night’s sleep!

Try these yourself and see how your reality changes!

Mystic Minute: Take Off Your Crazy Glasses!

Take Off Your Crazy Glasses ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

This morning someone was talking about how their life was going easier, but there was still chaos. They are shifting jobs where they won’t be so busy, but that feels really uncomfortable to their body-personality.

Our body-personality is always mimicking Consciousness. It tries to create reality by manipulation and control. It reacts to what is, rather than responds to what is.

When you relax into operating as Consciousness, you realize you as Consciousness are creating all of it.

When we start navigating life as Consciousness, there’s no need to control the flow, but that doesn’t mean the flow is out of control.

My body-personality wants to make something happen (“make it a great day” strikes me as very body-personality).  It wants to change or fix things. It wants things to happen faster.

As Consciousness, everything happens in perfect timing. Sometimes instantaneously, sometimes eventually.

It’s not because you need to learn lessons before you attain what you want. It’s not because you’re blocking something.

You can engage the world of more effort, or respond from no effort.

Your body personality is going to interpret things through it’s lenses, pictures, concepts, or impressions. It will interpret something as crazy, or chaotic, and get you all riled up feeling you need to change it the hard way.

A clue to not operating as Consciousness, is when I’m trying to change people and the world around me, rather than simply shifting within myself. If I feel crazy or out of control, it’s a sure indicator that my attention is outside myself.

No matter what is going on in my storyline, when I’m centered within myself as Consciousness, everything is ok. All is going very, very well.

Take off your crazy glasses and you will see that in your own life as well.

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!
