Weaving Between Levels of Perception © 2020 Joan M Newcomb, CPC
In recent months, with all that’s been going on in the external world, I’ve completely forgotten my storyline. That is, the levels of my story line, and that I’m the moving through this reality from different levels. That’s because I don’t see them as static levels, rather, I weave between the levels of perception.
When I’ve lost my focus, I’ve dropped a level. That is what the last few months have been like.I’ve been helping other family members with their realities and forgetting about my own.

I had plans this week to write about this shift to 5D and what it looks like from an in-body perspective. I may still write about it. But right now, through a series of completely unexpected events (very eclipsian), I’m sitting in my son’s living room, acting as the caretaker for my ex husband. He’s been disabled since having a massive heart attack in 2012, and my son, who was 25 at the time and is now 33, has been caring for him ever since.
So I am still not done with my helping my brother, but I’m down to flying out to NYC only 1 week out of them month. And this came up suddenly, and the hands on caregiving is only meant to last until they can hire someone. But it is so, so, so very interesting that it’s me here doing it.
My ex and I divorced almost 25 years ago. A whole other wife has come and gone since then. We shared custody of the kids, but I had some clear boundaries. I never even stepped into the most of houses they lived in during those years. Never saw my kids’ bedrooms there.
When he had his heart attack, I was in DC caring for my mother. When I came back the following year, he was still somewhat functional. But over time it became clear that he was neurologically affected by oxygen loss during the heart attack, and has other physical issues.
I viewed him as a relative that was ill, and extended a hand when I could to support my son. Mostly that’s looked like runs to Costco once or twice a month. There was a time I tried taking him to a memory support group, after he was diagnosed with dementia. And picked him up from the hospital a couple times after some severe bouts of pneumonia.
But this is the most I’ve actually been in this house, and interacted with him, in almost 25 years.
It feels oh, so, eclipsian. And actually a reflection of the Consciousness Shift.
You would think that a Consciousness Shift from 3D to 5D would be raising higher in vibration. But this is diving deep into ancient patterns, shining light and disintegrating them simply by being different with them.
This is walking, clear eyed, straight into them.
My son has done an amazing job taking care of his dad in extraordinarily painful circumstances. His brother lives in Spain and can only come out a couple weeks a year. There is no other family here. His dad has dementia and also emphysema, so he is being with someone who is slowly dying, who is taking years to die. There’s an ongoing grief that happens when you are with someone doing that. Who they were has already died and you mourn that loss. Your job is to provide a safe space as they are leaving the body. During the eight years since the heart attack, my son bought the rental house they’re living in, and has begun a very successful business. But has sacrificed in other areas of his life. How many 33 year olds are in this position? Usually we’re much older, having raised our own families, when this happens.
I sit here, when I’m not bringing his dad coffee, moving the cat out of the room when he wants to smoke (yes he still smokes), or helping him navigate to the bathroom (he can’t recognize shapes or distances any more), and bring Consciousness into this place. With no specific intention. Not changing, fixing, manipulating or controlling the hologram. Just responding to what is.
My ex is amazed at my ability to recall. He asks a question about something in the past and I tell him exactly what happened in way too much detail. I’m calling myself The Keeper of Memories, since it seems I’m the only one to know these things.
This is what it looks like, the shift to 5D from a 3D perspective. We can’t take our past with us. We are all needing to leave our baggage behind. Those of use with a heavier load of experiences (or concepts or beliefs) are being extra confronted at this time. The more capable of us have created more challenging life times.
And I get to bring light into darkness, which is my purpose for being here. I get to break family patterns by responding differently.
I just remembered that today is my first wedding’s anniversary. The irony is not lost on me, that I am here today, thirty five years later.
In greater Consciousness, there is no past or future. There is no deeper or higher. As Consciousness all the histories are happening at once. As we expand into greater consciousness (5D) yet remain in form (3D) we get to experience physical reality with less density, less pain. We shall not regret the past nor wish to shut the door on it. We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace.

It reminds me of the USA sending countless people who’ve lived all their lives in America to (often dangerous) countries, where many of them have never been before.
It’s all really about energetic space. The unseen, that we each personally have, and that connects us all. “Getting your space back” really means stepping back from distractions, from other people, places and things. The virus sending us to our homes, kinda sorta does that. And yet it’s also connected many of us globally on Zoom.
But if we’re not aware of Consciousness, if we view the world as Identity, we feel fear and resistance and want to make forceful separations. We cling to old definitions of identity and also descrimitation.
When you fall into Consciousness, it’s an incredible expansion, but you don’t lose yourself, you actually gain a greater awareness of who you really are.
I invite you to play with this, this week. I believe the more of us that do this, the easier the collective evolution will be. And wouldn’t it be wonderful to ease us all into a more loving way of being?

Now you may imagine that transcending form is the thing to do. And that coming more into form seems limiting or less than.
We aren’t dying, we’re integrating, what’s dying is the denser constructs of physical form, our firmly held beliefs that are absolute bullshit. This is why we see deeply engrained prejudices coming to light. This is why we see Nazis coming out of the woodwork.
As I am shifting to a 5D experience, I find everything is opposite in some ways, from my original trainings. Actually there is no distance or up or down from the perspective of greater Consciousness. As Consciousness is coming into form, the energy doesn’t necessarily come down from the heavens. The energy doesn’t necessarily go up to the sky. The energy can emerge from within.

I came across this video that perfectly described my Spiritual Path. I think it’s actually the path of an electron.
Most people’s paths are not linear and yet society’s expectations is that you go along a prescribed route that is measurable and buildable and results in a long term marriage, a solid resume, and a healthy retirement account. Does any of us actually have all of those things?
What this video illustrates how many things are happening at once, on different levels. It may appear that you’re spinning your wheels, that you’re stuck, or that you’re even going backwards. And yet so much is occurring on unseen levels. Spiritual and emotional growth that cannot be validated if you only measure things in a lineal fashion.
Consciousness is experiencing all of this reality from multiple perspectives simultaneously and instantaneously. There. Is no “progress” not “regression”. It’s not about improvement, it’s not about achieving. It’s not even about fulfilling a life purpose, if you define that to mean completing a mission you supposedly can here to tackle.
Consciousness creates this reality to experience the opposite of what Consciousness is in the state outside of physicality. It’s all about density and effort, it’s all about emotions and sensations. Consciousness’ natural state is expansive joy. When you shift to a 5D perspective, you’re able to experience that joyous ecstasy while still being centered in form. Even while the story line is going to hell in a handbasket.

After a year and a half of commuting to New York to care for my brother who’s had a stroke, the exhaustion caught up with me and I put a pause on my regular ezine/blog posts and you tube videos. I felt like I was saying the same thing over and over again.
I thought I’d start up again in February but the Coronavirus swept across the world, and it seems I was in front of it. The first reported cases in the US were in the Seattle area in February, and I attended a large gathering at the Seattle Center on February 22nd. Then I flew to New York City just as a single case was reported there. On March 1st I flew to Spain, and over the seventeen days there I got to witness the city of Madrid shift from being rarely casual about the outbreak (“there are only 400 cases in a city of 4 million”, to completely locking down on March 14th - people were not even allowed out to exercise. Only one person in a car. You could be fined 50-600 euros for being on the street if you weren’t going grocery shopping for essentials.
I flew back to NYC on March 17th and self-isolated for 14 days. I thought I only had a cold but now with better awareness of the symptoms am convinced it was a mild version of COVID19. While in NYC my sister in law came down with much more recognizable symptoms, and I was there a full month helping her recover and doing my best to keep my disabled brother from catching it.
I’ve been on Vashon Island since April 16th (did not leave the house at all for the first 14 days) and feel like I’m only just getting my head above water.
It’s been an intense few months and it ain’t over yet.
Regardless of what city I’m in, the fear is palpable whenever I go out. I’ve been hesitant to give a spiritual perspective on what is happening, feeling that neutrality could be mistaken for being disconnected or in denial. Also, if I’m so good at what I do, why am I in this parallel Universe? Why haven’t I changed, fixed, or manipulated this hologram?
Here’s the thing - this is all part of the Consciousness shift. What is breaking down, what is disintegrating in our lives whether physically or emotionally, is because greater Consciousness is coming into form.
Now I used to resist the doom-and-gloomers who said, ‘not everybody is going to make it’. And yet, wow, we’re seeing an awful lot of death in a short period of time. But a way to look at it is, there is no death, our loved ones have just left their physical forms for the loving embrace of greater Consciousness. There’s no good or bad about dying or the amount of time you spend in one lifetime in physical form. Also from my “5D” perspective, there are parallel universes where their bodies are still alive. And as Consciousness we’re always connected, whether we’re together in body or not.
My interpretation of “5D” isn’t that we’re all going to shift into it, one of my favorite astrologers thinks that means death. What I have found is, as I experience myself as Greater Consciousness coming more into my body that my reality feels lighter and more fluid. Time is malleable. Grounding is different. Physical reality is less dense. It’s like going from dialup to wifi.
As Consciousness, I’m in total agreement with what is going on, even as my personality rages against it. It’s not about superimposing a rosy vision on what is. It’s more like observing as a city or neighborhood or world goes through an upgrade. Telephone poles get taken down, sewers gets dug up, squalid tenements get condemned.
Right now it’s very glaring that this is a world of opposites. The loudest and weakest are in power, the old paradigms they’re fighting so hard to continue imposing are fading away. What is emerging, I see, is a new, internal sense of empowerment, that we are all inherently and uniquely valuable. As we expand in our awareness, the old definitions are fading away as well, in terms of gender and sex.
It ain’t easy, and it won’t be over in a minute or a month, this transition will continue to unfold.
A while back while playing in the waves at the beach, I learned not to turn my back to the ocean when a giant wave came towards me. You just dive through it to the other side. As these waves of change come towards us, face them, take a deep breath, and dive through them. Reality will be a lot more fun on the other side.

This is an updated version of a post from 2012
I’m in the midst of heavy duty care giving again, this time helping my younger brother recover from a stroke. It helps me to remember that in every situation, I’m receiving as well as giving. Right now there is healing occurring on many levels. My brother and I share a unique childhood, no one else in the family (who is still alive) experienced the things we experienced. And I’m benefiting in other ways, like getting to spend my weekends running around Manhattan.
"Symbiotic Relationships"usually refers to two different species, such as barnacles on whales or birds on rhinos. Barnacles grow on whales and live off of particles floating in the surrounding ocean that would otherwise affect the whale's vision. Several kinds of birds feed off of insects that live on rhino's skin (you could say the insects themselves have a symbiotic relationship with their host).
It's also a good term for how we humans interact with each other.
Biology describes 5 different kinds of Symbiotic Relationships:
- Mutualism, where both species benefit
- Commensalism, where one species benefits, the other is unaffected
- Parasitism, where one species benefits, the other is harmed
- Competition, where neither species benefits
- Neutralism, where both species are unaffected
It's an interesting way to look at your friends, family and coworkers! Is your relationship Mutual, a 'win-win' for each person? Are you and your partner, family member, or employer/coworker/customer equally benefiting?
Is it Commensal you're getting something and they're not getting anything but it doesn't matter to them? That's a tougher one to imagine. Even if you feel you're putting out all the effort and getting nothing back, there's always something returning to you.
It gets a little messy when considering Parasites. People aren't exactly ticks or noxious weeds, but you could look at some government officials being parasitical when they want tax breaks for themselves while withdrawing services for others. When I was a teenager, my father called my mother, my brother and I, “parasites”. Verbal abuse scars the soul. This is one of the childhood wounds I’m hoping I’m healing while I’m New York.
Biology defines Competition as where *neither* benefits. Spiritually, competition stops growth and creativity, as it places your attention outside yourself. Competition focuses not just on doing better than someone but in outdoing them. In biology it affects survival.
Neutral is as tough to imagine as Commensal, because how can there be an interaction without being affected?
Unless you're roughing it on a desert island, we are all interdependent, no matter how alone or resistant you may feel. No relationship is truly one way. Even anonymously helping someone leaves you with a good feeling, just as using them leaves you feeling bad.
It can be disturbing to realize in a dysfunctional relationship you were actually getting something out of it. Perhaps you were afraid to leave because you were still trying to get taken care of. Perhaps you didn't want to take responsibility for yourself. Perhaps their dysfunction made you seem normal!
We are all participating in a giant energetic tapestry called life. Each of us is creating or emitting a colorful thread of our own unique vibration. And from a broader perspective we've agreed to be here interacting with everyone else. It's all good, even if we don't experience it that way at the moment.
This week, in your relationships, notice - are you the whale or the barnacle? The rhino or the bird? The tree or the ivy? It doesn't matter if you're big or little, you're receiving something from it! Acknowledging the pattern can help you change it. Recognizing your part or what you're receiving from it can help you accept it, and transform it if you want to.
Try this for 7 days and see what happens!
