Do You Have To See It To Release It?

Do You Have To See It To Release It? ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

With the events of the past few weeks, I’ve been reminded about what I fervently believe: The Truth always comes to light.

You can argue that many hidden things are never discovered. People go to their graves with secrets inside them. However, I no longer believe something that I learned in my clairvoyant training: that you can’t do anything about hidden things until they are revealed.

In the personal growth field, there’s a lot of effort put into coming out of denial. Sometimes going too far, such as labeling oneself when in retrospect your behavior was understandable or within a spectrum of normalcy (and yet spending years writhing in shame over it). Or labeling your family or others as one thing or another (and avoiding the three fingers pointing back at you).

People often turn to spiritual techniques to raise their energy. But in their attempts to “rise above” they ignore obstacles keeping them from being truly transparent. Avoidance isn’t enlightenment.

Yet when you shift to Consciousness, Consciousness encompasses everything. Nothing is hidden, even though the details may dissipate. It’s an awareness that transcends time and space. It nullifies karma, because there is no “past” to carryover to the “present”. Forgiveness is a nonissue, as everything is accepted and owned as a creation of Consciousness.

You don’t need to see in order to release. You need only know. And in knowing, reality shifts to something different.

This may seem vague and nonspecific. Consciousness is very subtle. Reality rearranges.All possibilities exist in Consciousness, so something that is an obstacle in this universe doesn’t exist in a parallel one. There are always alternatives, always choices.

You’re in the one you’re experiencing. However, as Consciousness, you’re experiencing *all* possibilities. That’s too much to comprehend within your present form, your current body/personality.

Consciousness exists beyond your mind/intellect. You don’t need to understand it to know it.

How does this relate to what’s going on in the outside world? What’s going on in the story lines of many countries? It seems the most powerful among us are also doing the most evil things.

As Consciousness comes more into form, the most ugly behavior crawls out of the woodwork, things hidden in the shadows have full spotlights upon them. Anything not in alignment with the evolution of Consciousness is going to stick out like a sore thumb, and things we may have been complacent about in the past will now feel jarring to us all.

You don’t need to process this all through your body/mind’s personal life experience. As Consciousness you can “grok” it from an expanded perspective and make the shift to something that feels better. When you’re viewing it as Consciousness you have the “bigger picture” and can even be amused.

But what about those times when you DON’T have an expanded perspective? When your body/personality feels too overwhelmed to go on? You as Consciousness can care for yourself as the beloved Creator that you are. It may be as simple as hot baths, chocolate, or naps.

You don’t have to see it to release it, you don’t have to spend years processing it, you can allow the shift to happen from outside the hologram, and then watch reality unfold in your favor.

When Growth Periods Converge

When Growth Periods Converge ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

I started blogging in 2004 and have been writing weekly blog posts consistently since 2007. A month ago, I flew back to Seattle on the day I’d normally write the blog. And normally, I’d churn it out at the airport, since I get there a couple hours early. But this time, I forgot.

Now, I never forget to write. But sometimes technical glitches happen. Normally, I’d put it out the next day in such situations. But I didn’t.

I could put it down to sheer exhaustion. I’ve been keeping up this bi-coastal existence since September and my first day home I usually hit the ground running. I take a trip to Vashon the day after I get back, *then* go face down with jet lag. But I usually get the blog (and ezine) out, regardless.

I was this stretched when I was caring for my mother seven years ago, and I still kept a schedule of writing.

This time, I haven’t.

So what’s been going on?

Well, I have felt like I’ve been saying the same thing over and over again. Virtually the same blog post, with a different title slapped on it. Which may not be a bad thing, it’s putting out the message.
People come across posts at different times, it reaches people in different ways, so there isn’t repetition in those cases.

And for myself, this newest Consciousness shift has become more energetically intense, with several growth periods converging.

Last month I turned 60, which is a surprise to me as much as anyone. We made the decision to move back to Vashon, and set things in motion to make that a reality. My son in Spain called to say he’s getting married, which means we’ll be manifesting a trip to Madrid next Spring.

And this visit to Seattle I discovered *both* sons, Vashon and Madrid, are adopting dogs with their girlfriends, so I’ll have grand-puppies soon. We’ve been without a dog since Emma Cardigan Corgi died in 2017 so I’m thrilled at the prospect of the pitter-patter of tiny paws.

My time in New York has been physically more intense and it’s clear this will require me on the ground there for the next year or more. I haven’t sorted out what it will take for this to be sustainable yet. But I did start Meetups there, in a very tiny way (by NYC standards).

New York is like diving into density for three weeks of the month. It requires me to jump fully into a reality that is so completely opposite of my reality at home. And, until this very moment that I’m writing this, I hadn’t realized how, in this last month, not that I’ve forgotten my techniques or my perspective as Consciousness, but that NYC may require something different. An upgrade of already upgraded techniques. (We’ll be working on that this next few weeks and will let you know)!

We’re all Consciousness having our individual experiences, and as Consciousness expands (or more accurately, when you as Consciousness comes more into form, and your body feels more expanded) we all see it showing up in our lives, albeit in different ways.

When growth periods converge, in the midst of all the chaos and confusion, we just need to do the next indicated thing. Keep it simple. Keep the focus on yourself. Trust that everyone is Consciousness, and the Universe is working out in everyone’s favor.

At another level, it’s about keeping a focus point. Ballet dances learn, when doing pirouettes, to find a “spot” to look at so they don’t get dizzy (their bodies spin and their heads always whip around to the same point). For me this is remembering to have an anchor point as Consciousness in my form, and to two-point to the center of the Hologram (which reminds me that this all *is* a Hologram)!

New York is like diving into density for three weeks of the month. It requires me to jump fully into a reality that is so completely opposite of my reality at home.

Unconsciousness Exposed

Unconsciousness Exposed ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

I’ve been watching short clips of U.S. Congressional Hearings, where each member has five minutes to ask questions of a person or persons brought before them for different reasons. It’s a fascinating process.

Whether they’re grilling bank CEOs on underpaying their employees, or the Education Secretary’s decision to cut funding for all reading programs from the budget, the member’s questions shine a light on their unconsciousness. It’s a great example of the working of the U.S. government, but it also what is happening as Consciousness on a global level.

There’s a huge wave of resentment towards rich people, specifically billionaires, and it struck me that it’s not because they’re rich, but because they behave unconsciously. How can back CEOs have so much money when a bank teller can’t afford to support her child on her paycheck. How can the Secretary of Education cut reading programs, when the sale of one of her yachts would fund the entire budget.

You could say the wealthier people are, the more unconscious they seem to be, that they are disconnected from the needs of regular people. That’s not a fair generalization, because the are wealthy people doing good things, to help eradicate disease and poverty, around the world.

The current shift in Consciousness is causing a greater light to be shone on unconsciousness. As Consciousness comes into form, it heightens awareness on every level. You can describe it as waking up, because it feels like you’ve come out of a deep sleep, that the sun has risen. In reality Consciousness has always been coming into form, it’s just that our current form can now embody more of Consciousness.

So each one of us is feeling that effervescent life force more acutely within. It is bringing an innate sense of self worth, that who we are is of value, our uniqueness matters. Our voices are being heard.

It’s causing a great reorganization of power. From the old paradigm of dominance and separation, to new new paradigm of cooperation and inclusion. 

It may seem like things are more unfair than ever, that “bad” is triumphing over “good”, but it only looks that way because the lights are on and we’re seeing it more clearly. And there is more good, but bad is just louder. 

Power is not force or dominance. True power is quiet, soft, inner strength, clarity, transparency. 

What’s reorganizing in your life? Where are the lights turning on? Who are you becoming, what is your Essence calling you to express?

When you shine light on unconsciousness, it either wakes up or disappears. Where ever you’ve felt restricted or whatever you’ve felt has been holding you back, it in the process of dissipating. Don’t resist it, and you’ll have the most delicious expansion into a life beyond your wildest imagination!

“It’s a New World but it’s not Spiritual” ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Have you noticed an energy shift over the last few weeks? It’s been a continual and gradual evolution but the last few weeks have been particularly noticeable. 

My husband, who’s a Tibetan Buddhist (which I describe as the Catholicism of Buddhism, steeped in ancient ritual and lore), said the other day, “it’s a new world, but it’s not Spiritual.”

I totally agree. Now he may have meant something different with his words, but I perceive that the hologram has shifted to a higher vibration, but it’s still physical reality (just a less dense version of it).

Last night he said it’s like we’re all being remapped, like a software update. I’ve noticed that going on for some time. I feel like our energy systems have gone from gasoline to fuel cell.  He also said it seems like our egos have changed.

Which makes total sense to me as our egos are the personality part of our physical reality.

My explanation for all of this is that greater Consciousness is coming into form, and our systems and the hologram has had to update in order to accommodate the increased frequency.

Those of us that identify with form, that identify as their bodies and personalities, are feeling really disoriented by the changes. They’ll interpret it as if they’re dying when really it’s just the denser vibration becoming more diffuse.

To me, the external world has become brighter and lighter. It sometimes feels like a movie set but still vividly real.

It's a New World, and yet it's still a hologram. Our bodies are operating at a higher frequency, but they're still physical containers. We feel more integrated into them, just as we feel more connected to others around the world. Because we *are* that Consciousness more in form, in all forms. 

And still experiencing our individual timeline, our individual storyline, our particular weaving through this version of time and space. It's just that time and space has become more malleable, and the storyline more variable.

You'll have to go through your own updates with all of this. You'll have to find your "sea legs", you own, new way of grounding and centering in this upgraded reality. 

As Consciousness you can make up your own techniques, and they'll work! Operating as Consciousness, you'll find reality reorganizing in your favor in the most enjoyable and entertaining ways, with results beyond your wildest imagination.

The Ghosts Of The Past

Ghosts Of The Past ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Since September, I’ve been mostly back East, helping my little brother recover from a stroke. One of the not so hidden gifts of being there is that I get to recognize matching experiences we’ve had, growing up in our family with it’s unique background.

As kids, we moved every few years to different countries. It was a rich and varied in cultural experiences. We learned to be resilient and adaptable. We came out citizens of the world. 

And, we had to represent the United States, be the picture perfect family, while at the same time not really standing out. If we stood out, we could get kidnapped or killed. Essentially we learned to hide in plain site.

It makes it really difficult to be successful as an adult if you can't be seen. If you can’t really e yourself.

We had lofty goals placed above us, ones we couldn’t reach, with the idea that it would stretch us. But really it set us up to fail.

And there were always critical asides, which continued on until a few years ago. Meant to belittle us, and also divide us. Keep us separate so we can’t compare notes.

These asides continue to get repeated even after the original speaker died. They have a ripple effect throughout the whole family. They get repeated and passed on.

And they knock around inside our head. The original speaker is dead, why can’t these thoughts die, too?

Early in my career as a coach, I worked with women from a domestic violence survivor group. Even though they’d divorced their abusers, the things they said still haunted them.

They learned to catch the thoughts as they had them, and do something to dismiss them. One woman would put her hand up in the “stop” gesture. In the middle of teaching water aerobics, she found herself doing it, and the whole class, following her, put their hands up, too. Later, she had to talk to her abuser in person, and when he started to say something, she automatically put her hand up, and it stopped him in reality as well.

When it happens in our heads, we can recognize these thoughts as not being real, not in the present moment. You can stop them, dismiss them, highlight and delete them, flush them down an imaginary toilet. You’ll find a tremendous amount of energy being released.

When it happens by coming out of the mouths of others, you can question them. Was that really what was said? Was that really true? People operate unconsciously, you don’t have to argue with them, you can just question the statement (or share your differing experience).

Ghosts of the past exist in the shadows. You don’t have to be afraid of no ghosts. Shine the light of truth on them, and they’ll disappear.

Off Kilter Wonkieness Is Reality Reorganizing

Off Kilter Wonkiness Is Reality Reorganizing ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

It’s been a wonky week. The energy feels off kilter. I can’t put it down to Mercury Retrograde (although there’s definitely been some of that - communications and electronics mishaps).

But this reminds me of two years ago, at the time of the Brexit vote and then the U.S. election, where many of us felt sideswiped by the results. Back then it felt like being shoved into an alternate universe.

This feels reality is reorganizing. The pendulum swinging back into balance (I hope not before swinging to another extreme). It’s like the part of the movie where things start to get resolved.

In some ways it’s been annoying. Like knowing the end of the movie but not knowing *how* the story gets there.

And also knowing that we’re not done yet with wild, unpredictable, out of the blue, plot twists and turns.

To me, it’s all been an affirmation that we’re living in a hologram. Things that can’t possibly happen have been happening. It’s kind of like the Saturday Night Live writers have taken over the Cosmic screen play and they’re competing with each other for best skit. You think that today’s news cycle was outrageous? Hold my beer, the next comic says.

We can have a variety of reactions to what’s happening. We can hunker down and let things unfold. That can feel like reality is happening to us, but even no action is a chosen action.

We can resist and fight what’s happening. Try to make people listen to us. Make the government change their minds. Throw money at the problem. Move to another country.

That’s like wrestling with the scenery on a movie set. Shouting over other people’s lines. Or storming out of the room, as if that will change anything.

We can also engage and listen. Call, and write, and vote.

And those of us who dance to a different drum, who heed a higher calling, who may be feeling the wonkiness more than most, what can we do? Change our inner state, change our minds, shift our energy, step into a parallel universe where it’s all unfolding in our favor, where it’s a benevolent Universe, where it’s all unfolding in everyone’s favor.

Responding as Consciousness, you can be amused at the storyline. You can appreciate wonkiness. You can recognize that everything is validation that this is a hologram created by Consciousness. That everything is a story within the hologram (even this explanation is a story within the hologram).

The time is ripe to make this shift. And all it takes is a change of viewpoint. See yourself as greater Consciousness embodying into form. You love your body and your personality, it’s Your creation as a vehicle in this world, and a way to fully feel and engage in this world. Others are also Consciousness in form, other aspects of yourself, other players in this online game.

Yet reality is malleable, and others show up in your storyline but do not influence it without you creating it as part of your own plot. (And you show up in theirs the same way).

Playing in this way and at this level is effortless, fun, and enjoyable.

You inherently know all is very, very well.

There Are No Wrong Choices

There are no wrong choices (c)2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

Looking back on our lives, it’s easy to berate ourselves for the mistakes we made. I should have stayed in school, I should have left that relationship, I should have been a better [fill in the blank].  

It can really mess up our present reality.  

We’re going through a collective evolution. As the greater light of Consciousness comes into form, it is revealing anything that is dark. As we grow in awareness, it’s hard not to judge ourselves for our past, when we were operating unconsciously.

Similarly, it can be easy to blame other people in our reality for our choices. We’re like this because our family had dysfunctional behaviors. 

We can get to one level by accepting the patterns we were born into, and accepting others that were entangled in those patterns. We can take responsibility for, and be more mindful of our present actions and reactions.

It helped me enormously to see myself and my family as actors in my life’s movie. And to know that at the end of filming, no matter what role they played in the story, we all got together for a wrap party. 

And yet there’s a perspective that’s a step or two above that viewpoint. 

When you recognize that you *are* the Consciousness that is coming into form, everything changes. The world is not just a movie with just a single story. It’s not just a mass, full immersion virtual reality game being simultaneously played by everyone on Earth.

To Consciousness, all lifetimes are happening at once. And for you with your particular storyline, all possibilities of it are running at the same time. That means you both did, and didn’t do, whatever egregious action you’re flagellating yourself for. You both succeeded and failed. You won and you lost.

You’re here and not here.

You happen to be experiencing this moment right now in this particular way, and you can go forward experiencing the next moment completely differently.

Imagine how your life would transform if you began making empowered choices as Consciousness rather than operating from guilt or fear? How your interactions with others would be different when you no longer blamed yourself or them?

For me it expands my compassion and my ability to express Love. 

Collective evolution happens as a wave, people stand up at different times. Imagine how the world will change when we all have moved to the next phase of existence. 

And it starts with each one of us shifting to operating as Consciousness.

How To Stay Connected With Your Inner Essence During External Storms

How To Stay Connected With Your Inner Essence During External Storms ©2019 Joan M. Newcomb, CPC

There's a huge Consciousness Shift happening and instead of bringing more harmony, life seems full of conflict. We feel out of integrity on every level.
It's hard not to be influenced by what's going on in the news, with the weather, and our society. There's huge upheavals going on everywhere.

In fact, it can seem wrong to have any sense of serenity when there's so much pain and misery in the world.

And our own storylines can be full of challenges. We may be one paycheck away from disaster, close to homelessness, no retirement. We'd be insane to *not* feel frantic at the prospect.

Why is all this still going on when we're supposed to be advancing as Consciousness? And, how do we get back on track when it seems we're so far off out path?

Consciousness is a high vibration, it's as if greater light is coming into form. It illuminates everything that is not of Consciousness. There's a greater spotlight on anything that is dark or discordant.

Patterns, and the resulting behaviors, that are disintegrating will seem louder and more intense. Those that are clinging to them are feeling their demise the most.

And yet, there is an inner part of You that is constant, unchanging. It is your Essence, the greater part of you that you can only access within. Trying to find it outside of yourself results in you chasing illusions.

How can you find the "greater" part of you inside yourself? It seems like it would be cramped inside this dense meat suit.

And yet, when you can turn your focus within, you find an infinite well of wisdom. The deeper you go within yourself, the more unlimited you feel.

You don't need to be a Buddhist monk, nor do you need to meditate hours on end in order to achieve this state. Anything that creates quiet, anything that withdraws your attention from the noise and drama, connects you to your Essence.

At your Essence, you *are* Consciousness, you are infinite awareness and wisdom. You are that which is coming into form. Give yourself moments throughout your day to remember this. Start to make decisions and take actions from Consciousness will completely change your life!
