Life in the Beyond: Fuzzy Photons in Action


Hello All,

Been seeing dead people here and there. Celebrating Halloween here in the US or Day of the Dead in other countries certainly sets a tone. So do people dying in strife and carnage in other places around the globe. Some of us deal a lot with dead people and some not so much.

We are noticing in group, clients and in my own life, about energies that were living and no longer holding human form. It has been about serving as witness to life passing, life needing recognition and influences present without individual awareness. All of it, energies with some sort of form and distinction now or at one time and loose, sometimes lost, sometimes still with something to say or still creating influence unwanted. We served as witness, offered direction, validating having been, releasing the trapped within, and showing no fear or feeling the fear and being okay with it. Some of us work big fields of references and serve as portals to certain kinds of energies to interact once again on planet earth. Some of us serve as touchstones for groups of population of the past.

In terms of consciousness all is okay and has place and perhaps meaning. Since we get to decide the meaning it can feel good or bad, wanted or unwanted and everything in between. If you don’t judge it, let it be neutral in influence and experience it is just energies circulating in disembodied states affecting embodied states. Sometimes it can be a projection of energy with a recognizable presence or just a sense of something. Whatever, often the holidays and family gatherings seem to present a thinning of the veil between here and there. Many of us can feel the comfort of a loved one who has passed and then there can be the discomfort of unhappy energies present in a location. All allow us to be aware of how we relate to the unseen forces at play. Current media can create all kinds of responses in us to what we can’t see or explain. Not all of it is helpful and actually serve as powerful fear generators.

Consciousness allows for all. It does not judge, it does not limit. Over the years I have been fortunate to experience many different ways life can be sensed. I tend to not judge it as who am I to say what is or is not, knowing that that is for each of us to dance with. If there is no time, no space in the multidimensional realities of the All, I am only looking at how it is all playing with me and what I want to do in response.

Maybe you too can talk with dead people. Maybe you are comfortable with that awareness or not. Whatever the case may be, let it be okay. Take the time to use your Consciousness technologies skill sets or what you know or have learned listening to our show and drop into heart space. Information can show up in any form at any time. Let what shows up be useful even if you think it might not be. Play. Allow your experiences and awareness of energies to show up as guides, angels, dogs, a big daisy face, your grandmother, gremlins, whatever works for you.

Ask the question “if I could have some help here….” Who would show up? Play accordingly.

Ask the question “ If I could help someone here….” Who would show up? Play accordingly.

Wisdom may be revealed, solace offered, connection reestablished, fears met and replaced with clarity. Whatever shows up is okay. Because that is what heart space is all about. It is a place of grace, offering warmth, support, non judgment. Many energies are not familiar with that state. It will invite the curious, the threatened, those who are threatened by grace, etc. etc. etc., depending on how you embrace life. The key is to be in heart space and not your emotional heart or mind which will have a personal investment or judgment.

Life in the Beyond: The cost of living in harmony 10/29/14



We have a lot of energy up in our play group and among friends about the price of living in harmony with others. For some it is the cost of friendship. For others it is the cost of loving others. We have learned at what cost our conditions about life is about for each of us. With consciousness technologies we learn how to shift that knowledge into something more rewarding. What if we were easier with what life wants to be for each of us and what if we could move out of the stuck patterns easier? What if we could first question how we think life has to be? What if we knew that realities abound in the spectrum of life and that we don’t have to be too attached to any of them? And that we are choosing on the level of where this awareness is?

Some of us have the rule set that things can be good for a while and then stuff happens. Having a friend can be good and then sabotage takes place in some way. We start in a state of hope that this time will be different and then disappointment ensues. We love our child and then they are taken from us. Further interactions are fraught with concerns and compromises never met. It is never the same again. Years later it would still seem the same.

The realities are that we are different. From the perspective and conversations of being consciousness in action, consciousness evolving we are not the frightened fearful children hanging on to lost illusions. Yes, we are still innocence having experiences and now those experiences are getting us wiser and more aware of what is possible. If we are in the reality that we are malleable still, it is easier. We can’t change the past in our currently held reality but we can change how we relate to the past. When we change how we relate to the past we change as we are in the now and the future is then different.

There is nothing wrong with pain and suffering. Hey, I know that they don’t feel good. I lived like that for maybe 50 some years. The last ten years have been about feeling appreciation for being able to learn and feel something different. Now they only serve as valuable tools to making choices and the awareness that some lifetimes would seem to be about no rewards, no way to win, no way to find grace in being embodied. Yet, in being willing to go to that space or place within it is possible to find grace and change the patterns. The flight/fight/freeze mechanisms we each employ to threat are there when we feel overwhelmed to stand our ground and challenge in our own power. Often they are still running without notice. Getting them turned of is helpful. Now we are able to deal from a centered sense of self. Think of the martial artist. Not always the biggest guy in the bunch but someone everyone can be leery of, not so easily pushed around.

Living in harmony with others is about living in harmony with ourselves. We are unique, often mystifying collections of feelings, impressions, learnings all sharing in our field of being called self. We are multidimensional sensory apparatus. Taking time to spend time in heart space and ask for new information about old patterns and able to engage potential as real is good. Releasing what is there into new patterns of being is key to a new sense of wholeness. Which is different than an often sense of what is missing as being or not knowing what is missing, just that something is missing kind of being. Use what pains you. Show appreciation for it. It is telling you where you are stuck. Allow a way for it to be useful and to release what is held.

We are all in less pain. We are all suffering less. We have moments now between the pain and suffering. We are aware of what we hold onto maybe is not ours, not us, just sensations as clutter. They may only be energies picked up along the way to match and validate our biases of beliefs about who we are in this life. It is as easy as questioning what you find to be real. If you employ the word “seems” what shows up differently?

Transcending Fear

Transcending Fear



Transcending Fear ©2014 Joan M Newcomb

Two of my friends just returned from the East Coast. One stayed in a cabin in New York that was over 100 years old, another stayed in a similar place in Vermont, that I think was even older.

What life must have been like back then. No electricity, no running water. No neighbors for miles. You could possibly go without seeing another person for months. A letter could take even longer to reach you. New traveled slowly.

Even though people lived in survival then, your primary focus was growing, making, or getting enough food to sustain you, staying safe from animals or outlaws, there was time for reading, reflection, creative arts.

Now we take so much for granted, a roof over our heads, groceries in our fridge, it seems we have to artificially manufacture things to freak us out. We like thriller movies and amusement park rides that make us scream.

Faux News doesn’t really communicate current events, it uses language and distorted ideas to transmit fear.

When I look at this energetically, I see the energy of fear pulling the focus away from Consciousness and towards form. Really, it’s survival energy. It looks like the original intent is to remind folks to take care of physical needs, to not get so caught up in prayer and meditation (things that connect you to Spirit) that you forget to eat and sleep.

It’s distorted now in that it disconnects you from your higher awareness, so that you’re running in circles thinking you’re gonna die.

The irony is that, disconnect from Spirit, you do feel like you’re dying. When spirit leaves the body, what happens to body?

With the energy of survival moving into form, towards density, and the energy of Consciousness moving towards Source, it may seem like conflict. But it’s actually in harmony. Breathing in, breathing out, moving in, moving up. Except it’s happening simultaneously. Kinda like the circular breathing needed for bagpipes or didgeridoos.

When we go through growth periods, it can feel like we are dying. We are expanding in our awareness, we are growing as Consciousness. But our limitations are disintegrating. Aspects of our personality are passing away.

As we are gaining in expansiveness, we can still stay connected to our bodies. We can assure them with comfort and affection. We can give them naps, bubble baths, chocolate… we are not abandoning the physical realm, we are taking our body/personality vehicles along with us in this adventure.

Perhaps fear isn’t to be transcended but transmuted. The energy of survival can produce creativity and abundance. Embrace it, take ownership of it. Navigate it’s white water with the seniority and skill as the magnificent, all knowing, Conscious Being that you are.

Life in the Beyond: 10/23/14


For those of you new to the world of Consciousness Technologies we support connecting to the field of the Heart and Universal Consciousness as a way to navigate being human. We create the space and awareness of how essential it is to life to understand that we are individuals having a collective experience sharing planet Earth. We are all part of consciousness in action, consciousness evolving. When we value ourselves we can value others. When we value our ability to feel our physicality and express our emotions in useful ways we are empowered to make changes and enjoy a sense of wholeness and enjoy those around us in new ways.

Heart means many things. It is a physical centering in the body as organ. It is our emotional center filled with our capacity to connect with self and others and it holds a realm of sensations. It is also the core, the essence of the collective experience, the All, Unified Consciousness. It is our playground and Grace is the medium. It offers Potential as the conduit to shift within the spectrum.

For many our emotional heart is not user friendly. It is filled with all kinds of sensations that are often unexpressed and suppressed and fill us with anxiety and grief. It is also home, a place of joy, compassion, wonder and grace. It is a place where whatever is present is okay, only something to indicate how we are relating to ourselves and our experiences of the world.

The following came out of a session with a client where a portal, doorway, window, access point to the energies of Love opened up. It is worth sharing. In a state of user friendly information, use your skill sets that we have been offering on the show or with what you know and access into the heart space of the All. Notice was sticks out to you or resonates in some way. Allow yourself to question and maybe just witness what you find. Embrace it all. Play.

In love-Action
Out of love- Action
Acting out of love
Being out of love
No love, no longer
Be love
Keep love
Keep alive
Loss of hope, friend, companion
Loss of time, people, place
Hold on, panic, fear, placement
Knowing, knowledge
Self lust
Self love
Self feeling
Self telling
Self falling
Love squared
Love warped
Love squeezed
Love out of sync, time, place
No place, no love, no nourishment
Love is a place in time
We hold on, to have place
Love is only feeling that wants to be real, validated, experienced
In Love
Out of love
Love as a series of dimensional gateways, like Dominos of squared soap bubbles holding a shape or frame that connects them all.


Check back next week for more to play with. Drop me a line and let me know how you did.

What To Do When Your World Collapses

What To Do When Your World Collapses


What To Do When Your World Collapses ©2014 Joan M. Newcomb

Every one of us will have at least one experience that shatters their reality. Every one of us will have at least one experience that shatters their reality.

You or someone you love will lose their job, be in an accident, get divorced, uncover a horrible truth, be diagnosed with a potentially fatal illness…

It may happen in an instant, or erode over time. Whatever occurs will feel like a door has shut behind you, your path has been irrevocably changed.

How do you move forward? How can you go on?

You may feel numb with grief, you may feel vulnerable, like your skin has been removed. It may be hard to be around people. It may be difficult to eat. You may want to sleep all day. You may not be able to sleep at all.

Energetically, what has happened, is that all your pictures of what reality should look like have been erased. Your identity has been altered. It is very disorienting.

Your perception of yourself as married, employed, healthy, safe, has suddenly shifted to the opposite.

Imagine a house undergoing a remodel. Sometimes it was consciously chosen. other times things blowup and make it happen. You have to reinvent yourself. You have to rebuild your life.

Everyone recovers differently. Everyone has a different time line. You can’t have too many expectations of yourself when things first happen. Perhaps you’re in crises mode, you have to just get through it.

Numbness can be a protection, it can help you keep things together in the first few days, weeks or months. You get through it moment by moment, and then day by day.

Your self-talk can make it harder – or easier. When my dog ate rat poison, the weekend I was moving, I told myself, “this isn’t a crisis, it’s an event.”

When my mother got Alzheimer’s and cancer and I decided it would be inhumane to put her through chemo, I’d find myself saying, “I can’t do this, I can’t keep going.” And then I’d say, “yes you can.”

Who is doing the talking?

We are more than our identities, we are more than our storylines. The part of us that is shattered, that is grieving loss, is our personality-self. Within us there is an Essential Self that is bigger than any problem.

Breakdowns are opportunities for us to strengthen, deepen, grow and expand. They allow our True Selves to emerge.

The sun will shine again. Mourn the loss but don’t cling to it. You will get through this. The pain will eventually subside.

Look for hidden blessings, and angels in disguise. Even in the bleakest moments, they are there. It may be in a sunny day. It may be kindness from a stranger. Notice how the Universe supports you.

Nothing true is ever lost. Your loved ones still exist in non-physical form. Who you are at your core never goes away. You may feel disconnected as you are going through this experience, but -You will emerge stronger, wiser, and more compassionate.

Know you are loved. Know you are wise. Know you are strong. Know you can get through this.

Most importantly, Know it will get better.

Equinoxes, Eclipses and Portals For Change

Equinoxes, Eclipses and Portals For Change

Equinoxes, Eclipses, and Portals for Change ©2014 Joan M. Newcomb

We’ve just come through the Equinox, which is a shift in seasons and a new cycle for Nature. And this month we’ve got two eclipses which bring sudden endings and sudden beginnings. They all happen every six months and launch us to a new level of growth, which lasts six months, two years, or more.

This occurs whether we’re aware of it or not, but if we’re operating from Consciousness we can take full advantage of them to accelerate our growth.

Eclipse Anular

Nature’s cycle begins with the Equinox after harvest time. It’s Nature’s New Year. You can align your cycle with Nature and call in a new phase of growth. Be amused to see what unfolds when you do! For the first three months there is ‘soil prep’. View your life as a garden, this is when you are tilling, removing rocks, and adding fertilizer.

Winter Solstice is when things seem to go dormant, but in actuality there’s a lot of activity happening on an unseen level. It may seem that you are daydreaming, but really there are seeds that are overwintering, waiting for the perfect time to sprout.

I find that my life speeds up after the Spring equinox. This is when the unseen architects bring their plans to nature, it’s when you can actually order seeds and start planting. In your life you can begin to move forward, giving roots to your dreams.

It culminates in the Summer, harvest time, you see the fruits of whatever you called in back last Fall.

Eclipses have similar cycles, they’re every six months, coinciding with the Full Moon and New Moon, and about every two years they shift to a different pair of signs. Full moon Eclipses bring sudden endings, it feels like the scaffolding of my life gives way and things collapse, to reveal how strong (or weak) my foundation actually is.

New Moon Eclipses bring beginnings. Opportunities will present themselves, and doors will open. It can seem traumatic. I find that things will suddenly occur, the last straw to ‘break the camel’s back’ and force me in a new direction.

Manifestation sometimes seems to take two years. “Stuck” or static energy held within for two years will show up with physical symptoms. Fantasies will show up in real life two years after they were first dreamt. It seems like one year is rebuilding, the next is deconstruction.

Everything is a creation of Consciousness, and it actually emanated from within. However, you can consciously work with these forces to set your intentions and bring things into form.

You can think of astrology like energy weather. If you want to build a house, you’d probably aim to do so during the dry season in your geographic area. If you’re sailing around the world, you’d choose to go with the wind and ocean currents (and avoid hurricane season)!

Realize that if something sudden or shocking ends or begins, you called it in from your highest Consciousness. Find a way to be in agreement with it, or in the least amount of resistance to it happening. See that behind everything is an opportunity to grow, expand, emotionally deepen, and gain greater awareness. Keep this in mind for the rest of the month and see what happens!

Listen to our show, Conscious Conversations with Joan and Janet, for more in-depth discussion on this topic!
