Reality, Insanity, and Truth

Reality, Insanity and Truth ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Maybe this blog post should be entitled arguing with reality. The news this week was insane. Stories of breastfeeding babies being torn away from their immigrant mothers, thousands of children being held in dog pens in warehouses; I hit bottom.

I’ve struggled to observe it all from neutral. From the perspective of greater Consciousness, what is really going on? Everyone at their essence is infinite and immensely powerful. There is greater Light coming into the world, it is illuminating the darkness, but it also means the darkness is going away.

Yeah, fuck that shit. It was already pretty bad but now toddlers and infants, that’s over the line.

What’s in the process of disintegrating is all the old power structures, and all the old attitudes that limit or define anyone as more than or less than. We’re all Consciousness, we’re all omnipotent.

And those who cling to those old ways of being are experiencing the most discomfort, because their reality is dissipating. They’re the ones freaking out and going insane.

Where’s the last bastion of this paradigm? Washington, DC, my home town. So what we’re seeing are extreme behaviors, extreme actions, being taken to maintain the illusion of power. And it seems so destructive, because it is. It’s reflecting the distruction they’re feeling within.

You know, I don’t really care what the higher reasons are. I just want it to stop NOW.

This world is a marvelously complex creation of Consciousness, with an endless supply of storylines. We are all Consciousness, we are all God Within. Other people are other aspects of Consciousness. People aren’t our reflections, they're real people not just mirrors or Westworld characters. But what we see or feel is usually in ourselves. If there wasn't a matching resonance, we wouldn't notice it or they wouldn't be there.

So even uncomfortable situations we've attracted, or we observe, are an indicator of what is shifting or changing within us.

SO WHAT’S GOING ON INSIDE? Everything within me that reacts to things that are unjust, that wants to fight against white male dominance, has also been disempowering myself. Where I have been restricting my own freedom?

The old paradigm was that dominance was power, and yet it's energetically weak. Power outside is the least powerful. Trying to control or change other people, whether it's trying to keep them out of the country or economically or educationally challenged, is the actions of those who don't feel strong themselves. And yet, trying to fight them, to control or change them, puts us into a weak position, it's using the same energy to create a different outcome.

Operating at a higher level of Consciousness, the rules are different. You can’t manifest by manipulating the hologram. You can only change by shifting from within, shifting yourself.

So how do we stop this insanity? Because if I withdraw (ever fiber of my being wants to go back to being a mystic in the woods), if I turn of Twitter (my source of on-the-ground news, and hence my window into the madness in the world), am I not being in denial? Am I turning a blind eye to people who need help?

I CAN’T DRIVE TO TEXAS AND THROW THEM IN A MINI VAN. And I don't speak Spanish, so I can't go up to SeaTac and help the parents (that have been brought to Washington State for some bizarre reason).

I can participate in a General Strike, as an introvert I don't go on marches and gave up on phone calls but I can protest with my wallet.

But really, as a Mystic, I can shift the energy within, I can collapse the internal power structures, I can step into a parallel universe where this is unfolding differently. I can two-point to where the outcome is already different.

When I relax, step back from the story, I can see and feel the Truth. I'm in agreement with what is (okay, I'm getting there). 

I invite everyone to do this for themselves. Because if we collectively reclaim our power, this can instantly change.

I'm excited to see what happens!

Fearlessness

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.

True Confessions on Time, Energy, and Money.

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!

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.

Are You Experiencing Reality As A Stick Figure?

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!

Sand Mandalas and Spiritual Evolution


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.

Manipulating Reality

Manipulating Reality ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

We all seem to be seeking change. We want aspects of our reality to be different. We try to make this happen, either by asking/invoking something outside of ourselves to do it, or by trying to do it ourselves. We use pure effort, we try strategies, we employ systems, we practice or we pray.

I taught techniques on how to create your reality for many years, which were very effective, until I went through a Consciousness Shift myself and those things stopped working. Then I learned (and developed) different ways to move through life to create different experiences.

And then went through a period of time when I was just responding to what showed up, with no motivation to try to change, fix, or manipulate reality at all.

Once in a while, though, I hit times when I feel highly motivated to pull out the old toolkit. One of those was recently, when there was a child abduction case in our neighborhood. Kids at a playground filmed on their phones an old, white, man in a hat and glasses, tying up a ten year old with duct tape, before putting him in a car and driving away.

When I got home and learned this, helicopters had been flying overhead for a couple hours as the police was searching for this guy.

I picked up different bits of information off of social media, all very disturbing, and at some point I kinesiology tested whether they'd find the kid. I got a yes. And then I tested whether he'd be alive, and I didn't get a clear answer.

Mind you, I was picking up on *everyone's* reaction to the photos, which didn't help my testing.

So I got pissed. I decided that I was going to manipulate the shit out of reality. I drew in an enormous amount of "power" and energetically picked up the man by the neck, and scattered his molecules. I may have threatened him with obliteration if the kid wasn't released, I can't quite remember. It was very quick and intuitive. But then I decided that *I* could step into a reality that had a different outcome - and suddenly the energy dissipated.  The charge wasn't there. It was done.

I was still quite shook up about it, so over then next twenty minutes I'd try one thing or another, but it all fell flat.

After that I went back on social media and discovered the police called off the search. The man turned out to be the kid's grandfather, and the story was that the kid was autistic and running into traffic so he used duct tape to subdue him. (CPS was now investigating).

So who knows what really happened but what I notice for myself is that *I* changed the reality I was experiencing, and then the story about what was happening changed. Even though there are still some shifty details to work out.

But here's the perspective from Consciousness - we're all Infinite Beings, including the 10 year old, the grandfather, and me. Myself as Consciousness created a story I became aware of. I created a response to it. I did some actions (or reactions).

The first part - fear, then rage, was *not* myself as Consciousness, but the part of me that was felt the need to draw on power that was outside itself in order to manipulate a story that was also outside of itself.

When the energy changed was me employing an actual Consciousness Technique - stepping myself into a reality with a different outcome.

Because you can't really change things by manipulating. I mean, you can move stuff around and make it look different, but the same core patterns will keep running, so whatever you want to avoid or fix will keep replicating in whatever you try to replace it with.

Playing in Consciousness is an art, it doesn't work if you're try to make it a system. When you're playing *as* Consciousness, you're at a level beyond thought, beyond your intellect, your mind machine "GPS".

Shifting yourself in this way creates results beyond what your mind can imagine.

Try this, this week, and see what happens.

Working With The Unseen (Old Ways Become New Again)

Working With The Unseen (Old Ways Become New Again) ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Every couple of years (or faster, it seems nowadays), I go through a consciousness shift, and my techniques go through an "upgrade". I struggle for a bit, as old ways stop working, until I relax into whatever the new "operating system" appears to be.

Recently, I was on a conference call for a marketing course I've been taking, led by Robert Scheinfeld who is the author of "Busting Loose From The Money Game". When I asked him a question on being frustrated with an aspect of my business, he suggested that I talk to my guides about it.

Now, I thought I'd stopped talking to guides a long time ago. After I'd upgraded them and we stopped having 'staff meetings' when they became electrons. My first reaction was, "oh, that's such 'old paradigm'!"

Then I realized, I communicate with the unseen all the time, I just don't slow down enough to put it on paper. What would it be like if I tried "staff meetings" again with the deva of my business? Would it even work?

I decided to try a coning, which is an energy configuration that I used for many years, with great success. It starts by focusing as Consciousness and connecting with the deva of my business (I actually have several businesses, but in this case I just chose an overarching Deva, without specifically defining what it was). And then connecting with Pan as a representative of Nature, the aspect of bringing the devic information into form. And I connect with my 'team' which can be any number of unseen helpers (this time I asked for tech help, publicity, copywriting, and some others).

It was really interesting. I never really paid attention to Pan but in this case I got a *very* strong energetic perception of a big, barrel chested and full bearded, seemingly male presence, who *really* wanted me to open a bottle of wine and have some fun. I moved on to brief communication with the Deva and the team, basically me requesting inspiration and information. It ended fairly quickly. I don't even remember what I wrote. It's on my iPad somewhere.

But right after that I got a call from a client from nearly 10 years ago requesting an hour long energy healing. I stopped doing them a while ago as my focus has shifted to teaching people to transforming themselves. I've also stopped doing hour long calls, when my rates went up. 30 minute calls deliver the same amount of transformation more efficiently. But, what the heck, so I did it.

Including that session, I unexpectedly earned nearly $1000 in the week after I did that first coning.

I've had a couple "staff meetings" since then, really disappointed that I'm not sensing Pan the way I originally felt. They're very brief, and I don't really recall anything hugely inspirational coming from them.

And then, out of the blue, I got an email inviting me to a telesummit at the end of May. Sure, why not, I thought, I can recycle the offer I used for a telesummit I did last year. But it turns out this telesummit is focusing on Health, Miraculous Healings and Prevention of Diseases, a completely different topic.

Hmm. So then I give the woman in charge who will be interviewing me a sample session and chat briefly about a possible product. And while we talked, something clicked that what I'm offering will be seeds for the next level of my online courses.

See, I've been offering the same course for the last two years, primarily as a private coaching package and sometimes to small groups. But I've been so busy that when people complete, I haven't been able to give them something beyond that beginner course.

And here's the thing - it's going to be an upgraded version of Accessing Unseen Help in your Life, Health and Business.

So now I'm really excited, busily producing the content for the Telesummit, which will be at a *radically discounted* rate from what the final investment for the full course will be. Stay tuned for details.

And yesterday it hit me. Accessing Unseen Help arose the moment I started doing these staff meetings again.

Ha, ha, ha.

Those guys are so crafty.

What To Do When Reality "ReCodes"


What To Do When Reality "ReCodes" ©2018 Joan M. Newcomb


If you're on Facebook, how do you react when they roll out a new format? You wake up one day and half your timeline is populated by ads or suggested posts and you can't see your friends any more. WTF??

Now imagine that you're playing an online virtual reality game with people all over the world, and the game is being recoded *as you are playing it*. The consternation amongst the players is palatable.

My husband is a devout Tibetan Buddhist, who follows a strict practice that is a thousand years old. It's about as opposite from my interactions with Consciousness as you can get, and it's fascinating when he comments about changes that he's feeling with his meditations that so perfectly describe what I've been noticing in reality.

The other day after his meditations, he said that "it feels like a software upgrade". That it felt like a "recoding" was going on.

And I'm like, yeah, that's exactly what is happening! And we're all perceiving it in different ways.

If you're experiencing the world as your avatar, your character in the game, you're going to feel helpless, angry, powerless to the whims of whatever is going on externally.

If you're experiencing the world as the user, you may still be pretty pissed off with the programmers, but might be figuring out ways to game the system to your advantage.

Now if you've been familiar with metaphysics for a while, you'll consider that you're a programmer of the game, and may be busily upgrading software you've created to meet with the new requirements.

When you realize that you are the designer as well as all the other aspects, programmer, player, avatar, there's no need to do anything. You're in agreement with everything that is happening, since you're also creating everything that is happening.

You can still play at other levels, but it's a lot more fun and you're aware of moving through different experiences as you do so.

I call the designer aspect Consciousness, and we are all Consciousness, creating this reality, experiencing it in our different bodies and personalities.

Even the most unconscious of us, is Consciousness.

For myself, I can tell what level I'm playing on, by how I feel. If I feel frustrated or irritated, I'm struggling at the character level of the game. If I feel like I know it all and am striving to be in control of my reality, I'm still operating from the mind level, and even if I'm able to manifest results, those results will invariably backfire in some way.

When I feel amused, curious, playful and loving, I'm operating as Consciousness. I effortlessly flow through my day in ways that would drive my inner Napoleon crazy. How the heck can you produce results if you're not taking decisive action with specific intentions?

Yet as I navigate as Consciousness, I find that reality reorganizes in ways more perfect that I could imagine.

Even if what seems to be happening in the world is sad or negative, I can see the bigger picture of what is unfolding.

I invite you to play as Consciousness this week and see what happens!
