You Were Born for These Times

“Every adversity,
every failure,
every heartache
contains within it the seed
of an equal or greater benefit ”
― Napoleon Hill

What if the very challenges of these times are providing opportunities for you to remember your true nature, connect with your fundamental inspiration, and sense your core purpose? What if there is great potential value in the situations you are sorting through, problems you are solving, decisions you are making, and plans you can put in place that are completely different than anything you or your family has faced before?

We are truly living in dramatic times, with so many temptations to indulge in grief, anxiety, and anger. Amidst all these emotions, people can sometimes feel divided. They can feel justified that their views of truth are clearly the best, being fact and science-based; it’s therefore obvious that conflicting views must be incorrect. But is that assumption necessarily true? Or might truth not be as synonymous with certainty as we sometimes presume?

A friend of mine recently wrote, “Never has it become more apparent that you can be standing next to another person and be existing in two completely alternate realities.” Which leads me to wonder whether quantum uncertainty might be driving the Truth Wars? As far as the term “Truth Wars” goes, it’s referring to an idea that most people don’t (yet) associate with the way people are likely changing reality, based on what they’re focusing on. Just as we can experience Placebo Effects, we can also get embroiled in belief-based disagreements that play out in reality as we keep finding the proof and facts and scientific evidence we think we need to support the beliefs we already have. So these Truth Wars are quite likely very old, and they’ve likely been happening throughout human history.

I hope people can realize that no matter what’s happened, miracles can (and do!) happen in an instant, and they happen all the time. I sometimes refer to quantum jumps as “the science of miracles,” since we are now finding scientific theories and experimental evidence to support that we can expect to sometimes witness different histories than we remember as if we’ve jumped to another physical reality. We can experience healing and health regardless of what has happened, and it helps to have a solid goal in mind.

For example, one thing that got me through finding my way out of longhaul covid was experiencing the idea that longhaul covid might be a gift and blessing–that perhaps it was offering me something I’d never find any other way. I saw and felt how it aged me about 30 years instantly, with lots of details about how and where I’d get arthritis, and tremors, and loss of balance and loss of vision and hearing, etc. I then realized all these things as well as allergies and asthma could be backed off, by listening to learn what the body needs to heal.

And miraculously, my dawning realization that I needed help and healing coincided with the moment when I sent a message to FutureMe last August 2020 to me this year, in late August 2021. With 20:20 hindsight, I can now see how I wove together possible realities when I sent love and blessings to my future self, with this message in my conversation with FutureMe:

Dear FutureMe,
I’ve been sheltering in place for more than five months, and all travel plans have canceled. It’s hard for me to imagine what you’re going through now, but whatever it is, please trust that all is well, and you have a great deal of love and support! And always remember to let God do the ‘heavy lifting.’ It’s enough each day just to show up, and do what you are able to do, and care for who and what you are able to care for.

When I received this message from myself, I experienced an extraordinary sense of feeling both sides of this two-way communication of love, gratitude, kindness, compassion, and faith. I benefited on both sides of this exchange, having received a flash of insight that this moment was coincident with profoundly pivotal moments in my life. Shortly after sending this FutureMe message I received a flash of insight, which influenced my path of healing starting in autumn 2020. And I received a simultaneous flash of insight and inspiration in autumn 2021, when receiving this message from my earlier self, and acknowledging this remarkable connection.

My favorite question, “How good can it get?” provides an open-ended invitation to invite and to sense wonderful opportunities in every aspect of our lives. Sometimes, these are opportunities we’ve not experienced before, and sometimes there are perspectives we’ve not yet fully considered. We’ve reliably witnessed some truly amazing reality shifts over the past twenty-plus years of reporting them in RealityShifters, and any time you’d like to remind yourself of some of the remarkable changes we’ve witnessed, I welcome you to browse through a few issues, and restore your sense of wonder.

Simulation Theory and “A Glitch in the Matrix”

I recently saw the documentary, “Glitch in the Matrix,” where filmmaker Rodney Ascher asks the question “are we living in a simulation?”  He includes film footage of Nick Bostrom, and Philip K. Dick, as well as others intrigued by this idea.  Here are some highlights from the documentary, from my perspective.

Philip K. Dick and the Mandela Effect

I’d been looking forward to see “Glitch in the Matrix,” since I’d heard that it references the Mandela Effect.  One of the highlights for me in watching “Glitch in the Matrix” was the inclusion of Philip K. Dick’s 1977 talk in Metz, France, entitled, “If you find this world bad, you should see some of the others,” around the time the first Star Wars movie came out in theaters.  Philip K. Dick (PKD) gave this talk three years after having an extraordinary experience in his life on February 3, 1974.  After that experience and other epiphanies, PKD’s  interest in the idea of other parallel possible realities became much more pronounced.  In his 1977 talk in Metz, France, PKD expressed his expectation that some people will recall other possible histories.  In 1977 when Dick gave this talk, I was experiencing reality shifts and what would come to be known as the Mandela Effect, and I am favorably impressed by his comments about the significance and importance of people noticing alternate histories.  By the year 2010, the term “Mandela Effect” would come to be acknowledged as a worldwide phenomenon.  In his 1977 talk in Metz, PKD said, “We are living a computer programmed reality, and the only clue we have to it is when some variable has changed, and some alteration in our reality occurs.  We would have the overwhelming impression that we were reliving the present deja vu, perhaps in precisely the same way, hearing the same words, saying the same words.  I submit that these impressions are valid and significant and I will even say this such an impression is a clue that it’s in past time point a variable was changed–reprogrammed as it were–and that because of this, an alternative world branched off.”

While I certainly appreciate the view that abrupt changes such as reality shifts and Mandela Effects to what has supposedly ‘always been true’ might seem similar to what we’d expect to see if we were living in a computer-programmed simulated reality, the Simulation Theory itself seems more like a description of the way we sense and experience the world, rather than a comprehensive and complete true theory of the nature of reality.

NPCs and Nothingness

The “Glitch in the Matrix” documentary shows how some people have experienced a sense of vast nothingness, when going beyond awareness of others around them.  It makes the point that such an experience of nothingness can feel quite bleak.

I had a profound experience of feeling a sense of nothingness during the time I underwent a Kundalini awakening in 1994, which was part of my spiritual awakening.  At that time, I felt a deep loneliness far beyond anything I’d ever felt before or since. I recognized in that experience that any kind of existence disconnected from all relationships with others is a truly intolerable sensation.  I found my way through that experience by knowing at a deep level that I refused to be alone, and by knowing that other realities and other worlds exist, so therefore I would make contact with other consciousness(es).  It seems to me that the meaning of noticing such vast nothingness is to remind us that we need relationships with others in a very deep, profound, and fundamental way.

Some people believe NPC (non player characters) exist, such that some people are not truly inspired nor motivated, and “Glitch in the Matrix” presents this concept–along with the potential dark side of possibly making a mistake in treating others as NPCs in a given moment, which we can come to regret when we were not acting with kindness nor compassion. When I was a little girl, I had an experience where I was shocked to witness that people–including my own family members–sometimes move through daily like on autopilot, as if they are not fully and completely present and sentient and actively making choices in each moment.  I write about this idea that so many of us are running on autopilot in my book, Reality Shifts. I discuss the importance of getting past our masks and facades, and our tendency to think, speak, and act on autopilot.  We can all be ‘called in’ to be more fully present in our lives, and this can be part of our spiritual evolution, both individually and collectively as a species.

GANS and Human Purpose

“Glitch in the Matrix” presents the idea of GANS – Generative Adversarial NetworkS–where two (or more) Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems are in competition with one another as they create simulations.  One is the FORGER whose task is to create human beings who look enough like humans to fool someone. Another AI system is called the INSPECTOR, whose job is to tell the difference between fake and actual people. Some feel it’s possible that the human role in Simulation Theory is to fine-tune and improve the Simulation according to this GANS process.

While I agree with those in the “Glitch in the Matrix” documentary that humans are certainly capable of channeling and editing inspirational ideas, it seems clear that without any underlying sense of meaning and story and relationships, these simplistic roles would seem to hold little long-term interest for most humans.

The Dreamtime and Plato’s Cave

“Glitch in the Matrix” points out that in the movie, “The Matrix,” Neo keeps his money and special things in a book, “Simulacra and Simulation,” which is a tip-off at the start of that movie that all is not what it seems. There is a long tradition within indigenous societies of acknowledging dreams within dreams, and ‘the Dreamtime.’ This idea of dreaming the world into existence, with layers and layers of dreams and awakenings is a much more ancient concept even than Plato’s cave, to the point that there exist words to express how seemingly real physical reality is just ‘maya’–just illusion

When Neo first awakens, and wonders why his eyes don’t work, Morpheus explains, “Because you’ve never used them before.” This matches what we know scientifically, as I’ve shared in a podcast I did with Dr. Donald Hoffman:  Perception, Truth, and Reality with Donald Hoffman.  Dr. Hoffman describes how our sense of the world through our perceptions is not truly real—our experience of true reality is filtered.  Donald Hoffman talked with me about his interface theory of perception, in which what we typically assume to be “out there” is not necessarily reality–but rather something akin to the desktop user interface on a computer. And just as we don’t need to execute machine language commands in order to send an email or delete a file, biological evolution has been proven to favor perceptual fitness over truthful completeness and accuracy of perception.  As Hoffman writes, “… to experience is to construct, in each modality and without exception,” and new findings in quantum physics and quantum biology increasingly provide scientific evidence to show this is true.

Similarly, in the allegory of Plato’s Cave, the true light of the world is much more brilliant than the shadow world as seen within the cave. When Plato comes back into the cave, he sees his friends are still watching the shadow play, giving one another acknowledgement for being first to spot what’s going on. This allegory of the cave reminds me of how anyone who has enlightenment experiences feels transformed when returning to everyday life. Quite often, it’s impossible to interact with friends, family, and colleagues the same as before the epiphany and transcendant experience. It’s also challenging, if not impossible, to explain or properly convey the experience fully to others.

Will We Recognize Our Reflection?

In “Glitch in the Matrix,” Jesse Orion expresses feelings of frustration when noticing he’s been stuck in digital worlds that aren’t going so well. And then when he gets out of those games and simulations, he’s noticed he was still stuck in a reality that’s not going so well, either. And he can’t help but draw parallels, since “the grass is dead on both sides. It’s like they’re ‘quick-patching’ reality,” because (just like in glitchy games), real life is not going that well.  “People are broken. Cosmologies are broken.”   This sounds to me like “glass half full” kind of thinking, where whatever we focus our attention on, we will see more of whatever we happen to be focusing on.

I notice that humans are becoming more capable of instantaneous manifestation, at which point our ability to maintain good emotional and energetic hygiene (keeping to good and nurturing thoughts) is becoming ever more essential to our personal and social well-being. We can start to observe how we can experience more of whatever we focus our attention and energies upon. Many of us have habits of dwelling on complaints, worries, fears, and observations of lack—rather than nurturing gratitude, appreciation, and reverence.

PKD writes about worlds which may be inhabited by just one protagonist, or who may have others who join them in their peculiar world, or those others remained in their own worlds throughout. PKD wrote on these themes of ‘pleuriform pseudo-worlds’ because he, “was sensing the manifold of partially actualized realities, remaining tangent to the actualized one—the one that the majority of us, by consensus gentiem, agree on.” I love how PKD was so tuned in to the way that it seems people can—and often do—experience simultaneous parallel realities. I love how this matches some recent experimental findings in quantum physics, in which observational devices even at the same place and time can witness different events. This seems to clearly indicate that there may be no such thing as one ‘objective reality.’

Another character in “Glitch in the Matrix” asks the question:  “When we know we may be in a simulation, how do we ethically deal with others—when we also know others are there like me, who aren’t simulations? How do I deal with someone who’s behind a false avatar, but who I really want to communicate with?”  He also points out: “Simulation theory seems to kind of solve problems, but it really makes the problems more poignant, and in your face.”

Again, this is such a perfect juncture to invite ourselves to find a story line we actually wish to inhabit—it’s such a great opportunity to care more about our relationships with other people, animals, plants, things, and the Earth and moon and sun and stars and sky.  When we make the most of our epiphanies through lucid dreaming and recognizing how our physical senses merely show us a kind of illusory facade that is not complete reality—we can become the change we wish to see in the world.  We can become more caring, more compassionate, more kind.  We can care more about our relationships with others.

Divine Awakening

“Glitch in the Matrix” mentions that PKD’s friend, Tom Disch, first suggested to him that his experience on Feb 3, 1974 sounded like “Enthousiasmos” by Elijah, and PKD liked the idea, and found it pleasant.  The experience of feeling inspired by God seems uplifting, and like it would have given PKD a feeling of spiritual epiphany, which seems to have been the case.

One character in “Glitch in the Matrix” points out that: There are fundamental metaphors we have about reality, such as “life is like a journey,” and “Waking up from a dream”—and shifting between ontological realities (sometimes quite abruptly, or with intense emotions) is a fundamental, cognitive experience—is “stitched into us.”

Yes; humans do seem to be wired to experience many levels of awakening, in order to discover many levels of identity within ourselves. Perhaps the greatest unasked question, and the question that potentially can do the most for us in terms of answering all our questions and solving all our problems is simply, “Who am I?”

This question of identity can enable us to begin to realize our true identity is involved with co-creating our experienced dream-within-a-dream; and also that we have many levels and layers to our conscious identity.

Has Someone had a Mandela Effect About YOU?

Mandela Effect Researcher Cynthia Sue Larson said someone said she’d heard she died.
But did she…in another reality?

By now, many of us have heard about the Mandela Effect, and some of you may have had one or two of your own. But is there science to support that these effects – memories that seem to counter supposed documented history, are real. Are these more than just mistaken recollections and actual time or reality shifts?

According to Cynthia Sue Larson, the answer is a resounding YES! And she’s delved into this research both from a quantum and mystical perspective. And what she’s discovered may just turn conventional science on its ear!

In today’s chat we discuss this incredible discovery along with a Mandela Effect that involved her own death in another time-line.

Are You Witnessing Reality Shifts, Time Jumps, The Mandela Effect? If So, You’re NOT Alone! (Video)

According to Quantum Researcher Cynthia Sue Larson “Reality Shifts” are EVERYWHERE!

The Mandela EffectTen minutes before Hector from Chile, near Santiago actually drove to pick up his nephew who stood waiting nearby, the nephew phoned to say, “Uncle why did you just pass me on the street? I saw you and you drove by and didn’t even stop!”

Hector, somewhat amusingly said to his nephew, “Well you just got to see me and my truck time jump.”

Though it sounds like something out of a sequel of Back to the Future, it’s not. This is real life for Hector. He feels what is called Time Jumps happen to him all of the time.

This is just one story that quantum researcher and publisher of the website realityshifters.com Cynthia Sue Larson recently shared with me during our latest episode of Higher Journeys Radio.

“It looks like we’re reaching a tipping point of consciousness…I think there’s been a jump in awareness [about people] experiencing these things,” Cynthia revealed.

The bizarre and unpredictable nature of reality is a subject near and dear to Cynthia. Not just because she’s been fascinated by and collected hundreds of personal reports of what she calls Reality Shifts, but because she herself is an experiencer.

As much as the masses immerse themselves in what is considered a predictable and unchanging landscape of life, instances of time jumps, reality shifts and also what has now become popularly known as “The Mandela Effect,” remembering a different history than what is considered a historical fact, is fast becoming more of the norm.

I asked Cynthia whether the instances of reality anomalies were increasing vs. the amount of people taking notice of such “high strangeness.” Though she tends to feel it’s the latter, some feel that due to a planetary or frequency shift of energy, the proverbial veil between third dimensional reality and other dimensions is thinning, and therefore making these sorts of bizarre glitches in reality far more frequent. Admittedly, I tend to be in this camp.

Nonetheless, a shifting, plastic and more malleable reality is becoming the new normal.

Other accounts discussed in this episode include a woman from California who personally witnessed specific content from two books she owned disappear into thin air – I then relate my own story about how several days before the death of Sopranos star James Gandolfini, I saw a headline with his picture on a website that had announced his death!

The stories, just get stranger and stranger…

Is this the true nature of reality?

Master the Art of Becoming Resilient

I am glad to see an article in The Atlantic titled The Benefits of Optimism Are Real summarizing recent research studies indicating that “resilient people are good at transforming negative feelings into positive ones.”  Resilient people excelled at bouncing back from stressful experiences, thanks to their emotional complexity and ability to involve a wider range of emotions, such that “high levels of positive emotions exist side-by-side with negative emotions.”  Resilient, optimistic people worry less, let go of negativity more readily, and more consistently shift their attention to the positive.

We find examples of adopting a resilient, positive attitude in the movies Life of Pi and Silver Linings Playbook, both of which include examples of adopting or moving into a position of greater emotional resilience, complexity, and optimism–without being delusional Pollyannas.  The main characters in both stories chose to focus on appreciating the blessings in their lives, while doing whatever (seemingly small things) they were able to do while facing challenging situations, instead of choosing to obsess on what’s unfair or upsetting.

Venting Doesn’t Help

You may have heard advice from people–including some experts–stating that it’s helpful to express your anger and anxiety in order to feel happier.  And you might notice some friends or family members who take every opportunity to describe what’s been troublesome for them recently in their lives.  Yet researchers are finding that any such rumination on worries, doubts, and fears tends to lead people who are already feeling depressed to become significantly more depressed (and for a longer period of time) than distracting oneself with something that’s either neutral or mostly positive.  One study even found that even venting by hitting a punching bag or being vengeful toward someone who makes you feel angry leads people to feel far worse, rather than better–and even doing nothing is better than venting in such ways.

Positive Emotions Heal

Researchers have found that positive emotions have a healing quality that have the power to reverse detrimental effects of stressful negative experiences.  Resilient people view unpleasant, stressful situations as challenges and opportunities for growth, rather than as threats–even when they are specifically directed to view challenges as threats.

Find Meaning:  Look for Ways to Improve

For the absolutely best results when finding oneself in difficult circumstances, we do well to ‘take lemons and make lemonade’–by seeking out a positive, productive goal to work toward.  People who find some kind of meaning amidst adversity by looking more deeply inside themselves to see what they can learn and how they can improve have also been found to experience health benefits above and beyond those who merely vent about hardships enjoy.

Master the Art of Becoming Resilient

We can create a positive upward spiral of good energy regardless what circumstances come our way, and regardless what is happening that is outside of our personal control.  We can learn to become more resilient by becoming aware of some positive steps for facing difficult situations:

(1) Recognize difficult situations as opportunities
As soon as grumbling, venting, and complaining begins, recognize that an opportunity has surely arrived, and also that this is the step we move as quickly as possible through for best results

(2) Describe why one of your most winning qualities is important
Regain emotional resilience in the face of any kind of rejection you might be feeling by identifying one of your most winning qualities, and then describing in detail (several sentences worth) why this quality is so important

(3) Set attainable yet challenging goals
Choose new goals that you know you can achieve, and you know will be good for you to achieve that now come to mind as you face difficult situations that you can now view as opportunities.

(4) Keep asking “How good can it get?!”
Regardless what is happening, maintain your commitment to keep moving ever onward and upward, by keeping the focus of your imagination and daydreams ever and always in the most positive possible directions.

The Mandela Effect – Digging Deeper into the Mystery

Consciousness researcher Cynthia Sue Larson digs in to the enigma known as The Mandela Effect

By all estimates, the phenomenon known as the Mandela Effect has gone mainstream!

Consciousness researcher and author of the best-selling book Reality Shifts, Cynthia Sue Larson agrees. As more people are now questioning their own memory banks (though many are adamant about what they remember), even more examples of the Mandela Effect or what I refer to as “ME” (and there’s a reason for that) are coming to the fore.

In my latest interview with Larson, we put it all on the table. We discuss…

  • Discontinuities on a macro scale – a term Larson uses to describe these “alternate histories.”
  • Explaining why the Mandela Effect cannot be relegated to a “false memory.”
  • The possibility that our brains are being interfered with to alter our memories.
  • The role of quantum computing and ELF (extremely low frequency) may be playing in re-wiring our brains.
  • The possibility that shifting planetary frequency may be shifting our own consciousness.
  • And of course, the science that makes plausible the idea that multiple realities, and timelines, and very real “reality shifts” may actually exist.
  • Why “ME’s” may be indicative of multiple truths and a subjective reality.

Join us for this always fresh and always fascinating discussion with the quantum optimist herself, Cynthia Sue Larson!

How You Can Harness Synchronicity Without the ‘Pauli Effect’ and Experience Lucid Dreaming

Some ancient meditative practices of Tibetans and shamans going back thousands of years recognize synchronicity, and that even when we are awake, we can still experience a sense of being in a dream.  This awareness includes the idea that you have access to awareness of being one with everything that is, and there is therefore an entanglement that is happening between you and the universe.  And through this connection, we are capable of exerting non-local effects.

What this means is that it’s possible for us to sometimes have synchronicities when we’re in a very highly-charged, positively charged state while being relaxed and energetically grounded.  So we might say something, and suddenly we notice there they are–or they might phone or text or email us.

Or we might say something or think about something, and notice that same thing is on the radio or TV show that we’re watching or listening to.  There’s no way we could have affected those shows real-time, so it’s an obvious synchronicity.  When we notice Mandela Effects, reality shifts, and quantum jumps, we are actually playing with reality much like we would do in a lucid dream.

Synchronicity & Carl Jung

Synchronicity is a term coined by psychologist Carl Jung to signify “the simultaneous occurrence of two meaningful but not causally connected events,” or as “a coincidence in time of two or more casually unrelated events which have the same or similar meaning… equal in rank to a causality as a principle of explanation.”

Synchronicity is the occurrence of a physical event in the world that occurs at or near the same time that it is being discussed or thought about.  This playfulness we so often feel in creativity allows us to find connections between ideas without a structured, rational, mechanical process — discovering that what we need comes to us when and where we need it.  Carl Jung once had an amazing synchronicity where he was talking to someone about a scarab beetle, and just then a scarab beetle showed up at his window.

As Jung treated this particular patient, he realized that she required a change of perspective from her overly-rational view of the world to one which allowed greater freedom of thought and feeling. Jung was intrigued to notice that this kind of rebirth that he considered so important for his patient was also indicated by the timely arrival of the scarab beetle at the window!

The ‘Pauli Effect’

Many of us have noticed similar synchronicities.  I find it very interesting that one of Carl Jung’s friends was physicist Wolfgang Pauli, who started experiencing bizarre phenomenon.  Pauli wanted to know what was going on, and to better understand the psychology behind some of his experiences, and he consulted with his friend, Carl Jung.  Pauli himself was quite well-known amongst the physics community as someone you don’t want to invite to your laboratory, because if he comes, the equipment breaks down.  So those who might have been wanting to demonstrate an experiment can’t because once Pauli arrives, nothing works.  Everything would seem to stop functioning as soon as Pauli entered the room.

This so-called “Pauli Effect” is an example of another kind of entanglement of the sort that can happen when you are not grounded.  There’s an energetic effect that can occur that I’ve experienced.  Before I regularly practiced energetically grounding myself, I would walk into rooms and the equipment would fail.  I know what that feels like, and it’s not fun:  the lightbulb blows out, the appliances break down, the computer stops working.  So I quickly learned that I need to stay grounded when I’m doing martial arts, when I am doing Tai Chi, when I am doing lower abdominal breathing and basically boosting my inner Qi / Ki to high levels–then I need to stay grounded.  This “Pauli Effect” is thus something like the flip side to synchronicity.

Experiencing Lucid Living

Lucid living is analagous to having a lucid dream.  In a lucid dream, dreamers often recognize you can look at your hand in a dream and notice, “My hand looks a little different.”  The other weekend I was away from home, and in my dream I went back home to check on things.  In my dream, I was walking through my house toward the front door, and I opened the front door in my dream, but then there was a car outside of the door, blocking everything.  It was a little tiny white car on my porch, completely blocking me from being able to open my front door.  So in my dream, I looked at my hand, and I could easily expand it to be very big.  I was surprised to see the car on my porch, so that woke me up inside the dream.  Then I knew I was dreaming so I could just make my hand really big, pick the car up, move the car, and then go back to being “normal” and walk through the front door as usual.  That’s an example of lucid dreaming.

When we have reality shifts and Mandela Effects, these are capable of getting us to ask the question, “WHY are these things happening?”  

When we ask this question, you might remember when you were little and adults might annoy you by answering your questions of “Why?” with the answer, “Because!”  This answer in this case is a good one, since when you look at the parts of the word because you find:  Be Cause.  This is a clue that you–as consciousness– are the cause of reality shifts and Mandela Effects.

When we globally work together, we are literally capable of changing the world, so you can get global effects.

One version of the idea of lucid living is shown in the movie ‘Inception’ in which events unfolding around characters who are actively dreaming can be steered by their consciousness.  In the movie, Inception, it’s pointed out that you can never remember the beginning of a dream, dreams that seem to cover hours might only last a short time, and often you don’t know that when you’re dreaming.

You also don’t necessarily know how you are connected–or entangled–with others, and whether you are in their dream, or they are in yours, or you are together in a shared dream.  In the movie, Inception, a dreamer can tell whether he is in a dream or whether he’s awake by spinning a top.  This dream marker thus provides a clue by which it’s possible for him to know whether he is dreaming or awake.  In the movie, Inception, there was a spinning top that helped characters in that science fiction movie recognize that they were in a dream, and not totally in the real reality.

You can actually move your level of observation back a step, and that’s the key principle of all of these ideas of reality shifting, Mandela Effects and quantum jumps.  The idea from quantum physics is that the Observer who is observing the other observers is the one who’s going to get the outcome of that entire entangled network of observations.  That final level Observer is the one who can call the shots and decide what’s going on.

The big idea here when considering entanglement and lucid living is to, as always, keep asking “How good can it get?” Stay positive, and realize that when you leave that positive question open-ended and evolving, it’s possible to find win-win solutions for all of us.

Nelson Mandela Didn’t Die in Prison, and Why it Matters

Cynthia Sue Larson

Cynthia Sue Larson

“The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”   – Mark Twain

If you remember seeing media coverage of Nelson Mandela having died in prison in the 1980s, and you’re wondering why he’s just this month been reported dead again, you’re in good company. Mandela is one of the most commonly discussed celebrities who has been seen alive after having been reported dead. When we personally witness disparities between events we remember having happened and what reliable physical evidence suggests has occurred, we might at first feel a sense of dissonance. Fortunately, we need not stay confused, since noticing the differences between our memories and evidence in our current reality allows us to gain valuable direct experience of how malleable reality can truly be. Recent scientific discoveries suggest it’s quite likely that both this so-called “Mandela Effect,” also known as the “Alive Again” phenomena, are not new, as shamans and spiritual teachers from every continent and age of humankind have described for millennia.

The Mechanism Behind the Mandela Effect

We are fortunate to be alive at a time when scientists from several different branches of physics are converging on the idea that we live in a holographic multiverse… AND that everything including you and me have a truly quantum nature. When we put these two big ideas together, we see the mechanism by which we can understand and appreciate how things like intuition, synchronicity, the placebo effect, and spontaneous remission can transpire.

Evidence supporting the concept of many parallel universes being interconnected comes from UC Berkeley’s Raphael Bousso, whose view of reality has been gaining support ever since last year’s discovery of the Higgs boson. And there is further good news for those wondering, “Where are these other parallel universes?” Some of the first hard evidence of other universes was found just this year by theoretical physicist Laura Mersini-Houghton of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Carnegie Mellon professor Richard Holman, through cosmic background radiation data collected by the European Space Agency’s Planck telescope, which indicates the presence of other external universes to our own at the very moment of the Big Bang.

What Happens in the Quantum Realm Doesn’t Stay in the Quantum Realm

In much the same way that some people prefer that “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,” many physicists have hoped that the weirdness known to happen in the quantum realm would remain safely confined there. This appears to not be the case, as evidenced in recent ground-breaking laboratory experiments over the past few years. Increasing numbers of studies with macroscopic scale objects, such as diamonds, are consistently and repeatedly demonstrating such distinctly quantum behaviors as entanglement–which Albert Einstein once called, “spooky action at a distance.”

Other behaviors previously presumed to reside exclusively within the quantum scale including: superposition of states, coherence, and teleportation are also being witnessed on the macroscopic scale. This is happening to the point that a growing consensus is beginning to form amongst physicists, such as those surveyed at a recent conference that you and I and everyone and everything around us exists in a superposition of states.

This means that in one possible reality, you have not made a decision that resulted in your catching a cold, but in another possible reality, you have. We can expect to occasionally experience quantum jumps from one possible reality to another, particularly when we are aware that such leaps are possible. These jumps from one reality to another can be a lot of fun, as some of the world’s quantum jumping experts can attest.

And who, might you ask, are the world’s quantum jumping experts? Such experts include most of the world’s top athletes, medical miracle experiencers, heroes, survivors of close brushes with death, experienced meditators, beneficiaries of the placebo effect, and people experienced with hypnosis and lucid dreaming have experienced leaps to better possible realities. These people often trust intuition, and benefit from a sense of there being a connectedness between themselves and everyone and everything else.

Evidence of Possible Futures & Pasts

As the saying goes, “extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.” But how can we find evidence demonstrating that alternate histories occur, when typically the only “proof” we have that a change has occurred resides in our own memories? One way to collect such proof is to rapidly document peoples’ experiences immediately following highly memorable historic events like the Kennedy assassination, the Challenger space shuttle explosion, or Princess Diana’s death. Such flashbulb memories provide reference points by which the same people can later be asked about.

Researchers Ulric Neisser and Nicole Harsch at Emory University investigated flashbulb memories of students immediately following the Challenger space shuttle explosion by collecting handwritten student reactions immediately following the disaster. When they followed up two and a half years later with the very same students, Neisser and Harsch were startled to find that students’ accounts of where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news were different from what they’d initially described. One student said,“That’s my handwriting, but that’s not what happened.” 

Kindness Matters

Discrepancies between memories also often appear amongst people who were all together for a particular event, but later remember what transpired very differently. Chances are pretty good that you’ve encountered disagreements with people you’d usually consider competent and aware… except for when they insist something happened some way you know for sure couldn’t be true.

If we didn’t live in a holographic multiverse in which we’re all venturing in various directions to experience a multitude of different possible futures and pasts, we wouldn’t find the tremendous divergence between peoples’ memories. As we enter the Quantum Age, it’s time that we stop calling such differences in memory “false recollections,” in favor of “alternate recollections,” indicating respect for the fact that each and every one of us exists in a superimposed state, with access to many possible alternate histories, presents, and futures.

And most importantly, it’s time we truly show respect for one another and our multitudes of alternate histories and recollections.

Biocentrism: What if Life Selected this Universe?

Cynthia Sue Larson | CynthiaSueLarson | April 7th 2014

biocentrism Have you ever looked up at the night sky, sparkling with shining stars, and marveled how it can be possible that we live on a planet that revolves around a sun that looks like just another twinkling star when seen from afar? When you stop to really think about it, it’s truly mind-bogglingly amazing that we’re alive on this planet that has just enough water and air and is just the right temperature to support our form of life.

I just read Robert Lanza’s thought-provoking book, Biocentrism, which raises the question of how our universe developed in such a way that it is perfect to support life. The odds against such a thing happening purely by chance are astronomically high. The concept of “fine-tuning” has been utilized in the past as an argument in favor of the existence of God, based on the notion that because fundamental physical constants are perfectly positioned to support life, some organizing effect behind the scenes must be going on to have created such a remarkably unlikely situation.

We tend to assume that chaos is the order of the day, as most of us are familiar with in our daily lives. We don’t expect our homes and gardens to tidy and organize themselves, but rather we come to learn that order takes effort, whereas chaos naturally unfolds. So taking a long, hard look at just how organized our universe seems to be leads us to wonder how, exactly, we ended up on a planet that happens to be just the right distance from our sun in a universe that naturally tends to be supportive of life.

Lanza asserts, as the subtitle of his book Biocentrism states, that life and consciousness are the keys to understanding the true nature of the universe. Just how this occurs, Lanza says, has much to do with the extraordinary effects consciousness has been proven to have in the quantum realm. Since experiments conducted in quantum physics have determined that human observers influence behavior of quantum particles in such a manner that results can be shown of a decision before it is made, Lanza suggests this indicates that life itself is the deciding factor in the “Goldilock’s Universe” we find ourselves living in.

The word “biocentrism” was originally intended to convey a sense of reverence for all life, as opposed to focusing primarily on human life, and Lanza’s definition has taken that meaning a bit farther to suggest that biological consciousness is the fundamental consciousness at work in providing us with this particular universe. I respect Lanza’s premise that there exists sufficient evidence supporting the connection between microscopic quantum descriptions of reality and macroscopic classical reality, though it seems clear to me that consciousness must be more than merely biological or bio-centric. We likely do experience the most biologically friendly universes in the multiverse of all possible realities. As another book on the subject of the multiverse, Quantum Jumps, asserts, consciousness extends beyond our ability to fully comprehend it, and is worthy of a ‘centrism’ of its own in terms of being the ultimate creative force in establishing physical reality.

I am enthusiastically supportive of Lanza’s premise in Biocentrism that consciousness is at the center of creating the physical world.
Lanza’s breezy writing style makes this book about fairly heavy topics easy to read… so this book delving into physics, neuroscience, and the nature of reality is something you can sit down and read in a weekend… and you will definitely be challenged to see the world in a whole new way.

The Power of Forgotten Dreams – Cynthia Sue Larson Interviews Judy Gardiner

By Cynthia Sue Larson | Reality Shifters Blog

Judy Gardiner and Cynthia Sue Larson

Judy Gardiner and Cynthia Sue Larson

I met author Judy Gardiner in an author’s group through our mutual work in the field of intuition. I was delighted to discover that we agree that our world has truly entered the Quantum Age, and that Judy cares deeply about accessing intuitive insights through dreams. In addition to our shared interest in dreams and intuition, I was pleased to discover that Judy also loves the work of physicist David Bohm, proponent of a holographic interpretation of quantum physics.

Judy explained to me that she approaches dreaming as it relates to David Bohm’s idea of representing an underlying cosmic unity, in which many facets of this totality of existence are actualized in the fragmentation, timelessness, interconnectedness and wholeness you experience in your dreams. The relationship of dreaming to quantum theory was inspired in Judy by her late partner and colleague, Montague Ullman, a world-renowned pioneer in dreamwork. Fortunately for all of us, Judy recognized deep meaning in her dreams, which she now graciously and eloquently shares in her beautiful book,Lavender: An Entwined Adventure in Science and Spirit.
 

LavenderCYNTHIA: Thank you so very much for agreeing to this interview! Could you tell us a little about what your book, Lavender ~ An Entwined Adventure in Science & Spirit, is all about?

JUDY:  Thank you Cynthia for the opportunity to engage in the exciting message of Quantum Jumps.Lavender is a multi-layered and multidimensional journey in interconnectedness bridging the worlds of dreaming and waking consciousness, light and vision, matter and spirit, and time and eternity.

What began as a self-study in consciousness evolved to the story of Lavender which orbits the dream adventures of Penelope Peacock, an unscientific and unexpected vehicle for truths from other planes crossing the threshold of the personal dream and entering the realm of cosmic dreaming. As the story unfolds, we find that science and spirit become inseparable when concern for survival of self transcends to species-survival. Lavender begins with a single dream in which four statues come to life (later materialized at theTemple of Karnak, Luxor Egypt) eventually spinning out to the collective unconscious. The visit to Luxor was my first insight into the timeless nature of reality illustrating how the time in which a dream occurs, moves itself into the waking state to make a connection, manifesting as one undivided unit of time—one unified whole. Lavender has been described as a tapestry that is one young woman’s life and the world’s story.

CYNTHIA: I’d love to know a little bit about how you got the inspiration for writingLavender, which clearly has meant a great deal to you on many levels, and what the writing process was like for this book.

JUDY: It began with a dream in 1994 in which a deceased friend advises me of a breakthrough for mankind concerning the optic nerve. Dream images of the visual system were followed by dreams of light entangled with sciences I hadn’t studied; e.g. genetics, astronomy, geology, chemistry, physics. Four historical figures of science, represented as scientific symbols, began to appear in my dreams, each symbol representing their past contributions while beaming the light toward the future and delivering a collective message of dire concern for the earth.

The writing process entailed years of untangling an intricate web of fragments and coded images authenticated by intensive research, synchronous experiences, electronic anomalies and powerful intuitive flashes. My inspiration came through the dreams of Spirit informing Science, a cosmic wake-up call urging that it be shared.

CYNTHIA: I can’t help but notice you mention the phrase, “dire concern for the earth” in conjunction with your source of creative inspiration.  As a writer and visionary, I’d love to know of any positive possible future(s) you envision–as well as what people can do to help ensure we collectively move in a positive direction. 

JUDY:  Unfortunately Cynthia, there’s no short answer to your very insightful question, but I’ll try to provide an overview.

The first step toward a positive possible future is to release from denial and accept the reality that we are confronted with unprecedented crises. This is a clarion call for collective awakening. Apathy and resignation will no longer work as we look to the future. We have poisoned the earth with our radioactive materials and other toxins, wounding her most vulnerable parts. It is time to seek help from our higher selves, reconnect to each other and ask, “What can We do to change this toxic energy within our psyches and our earth?

Paralleling Earth behavior with Human behavior allegorically illustrates the enfoldment of all matter. We and Mother Earth are one sustainable system, one vast interdependent whole. For a moment, let’s summon up all the empathy we have and think of ourselves as an integral part of Her. As human behavior is conditioned to respond to stimuli, so too may be the behavior of Mother Earth. If her safety is threatened, her stability compromised, so is ours. To quote from your website, “Just as electrons can make energetic leaps from one energetic level to another, people can quantum jump…” In this spirit, and as catastrophes accelerate, our survival instincts may shift from worry for self to worry for the planet. Here we can turn worry to positive action.

Like Mother Earth, our collective wound needs to be opened, cleansed and nursed back to health. We have become distracted by the outer world of materialism and disconnected from our divine nature, the spark that gives meaning to life. In establishing an awareness of global oneness, one path that will bring us closer to our inner reality is the world of dreaming where we can reconnect with our core of being.

By shifting from the negative energy of fear and anger to the positive energy of love and compassion, over time, we as a species may energetically help to balance our environment by restoring health and harmony to our earth.We must assume a genuine sense of universal responsibility as our central motivation and come to terms with the global and personal challenges surrounding us.

What began as dire concern in Lavender escalated to resounding alarm, forewarning of the Fukushima nuclear disaster, the Keystone Pipeline Project and an alchemical transmutation occurring within the earth. Geology is a major theme in Lavender.

If you are dreaming about global issues you are likely tapping into the Cosmic Dream. This range of dreaming is an outgrowth of the personal dream, pointing to both our personal issues and those facing mankind as a whole.

Transforming our worldview can begin with a simple step by expressing one small kindness each day, be it with a smile, a caring word, a benevolent thought. The threats we are presently confronted with may be slowly unlocking the collective heart.

It was in the spirit of agape that Lavender’s message of unity consciousness was delivered.

CYNTHIA: I just love what you say about shifting from the negative energy of fear and anger to the positive energy of love and compassion, because this is something everyone can do. At a time when people might feel disempowered, I’m so glad to see you are encouraging people to make this kind of positive difference, and happy to see you encouraging people to pay more attention to dreams, and to how we share in the dreaming of our world into wellness. When I was a little girl, my mother’s mother asked me every morning, “What did you dream last night?” which helped me make connections between my dreams and the everyday world. I’d love to know if you had someone that encouraged you to pay attention to your dreams when you were growing up?

JUDY: Actually, I barely remember my dreams from childhood. I do remember sitting on the lawn at night staring at the vastness of the heavens and the blinking stars. When my little Scottie dog, Bonnie died, I would talk to her feeling that maybe she was one of those stars and that she knew I was always with her. I was born prematurely in the sixth month with little chance of survival back then. My heightened sensitivity to survival evolved to profound appreciation for the miracle of life.

I began to remember my dreams after I had retired from 25 years in a corporate career. Later, during my dark night of the soul, I found myself tunneling down the proverbial rabbit hole where I felt I was experiencing parallel universes in exciting new worlds. It was as though all those dreamless years had been deposited in a sort of dream vault where memories were imprinted and archived for a time when I would actually be able to “see” what they were saying.

I had mentioned that my dreams began with vision and were followed by light. In my most striking light dream, the glaring headlights of a car had flooded my sight. I had literally been blinded by the light—the inner light of the human spirit, our collective birthright—our altruistic nature.

CYNTHIA: I love your idea of dreams from “dreamless years” being deposited in some sort of dream vault where everything can later be viewed and perhaps more fully and deeply understood. So many people live such busy lives, that it seems a lot of us feel we don’t have time for thinking about or remembering dreams, or perhaps that we don’t have dreams in the first place. Do you have any suggestions for people to better enjoy and benefit from dreams in their lives?

JUDY: Yes, the feeling of dreamlessness is quite common but the fact is that dreaming is a biological function and we dream on average of 25% every night (based on 8 hours of sleep a night). Dreams are evanescent so it’s important to grab even a strand of a dream and record it soon as you can. Think of a kitten chasing a ball of yarn. One little strand can begin to unravel your entire life’s story. The dream courier is like Fed Ex. If we’re not there to receive the dream the first time, the courier continually tries to redeliver it. If still no luck, it goes into incubation, that dream vault, where it is stored in memory, gathering life experience, collecting data, reflecting backward and forward until the dreamer is ready to receive it.

The first suggestion for people to enjoy and benefit from dreams would be to dispel the mystique that dreams are meaningless or scary. Next, is to be open to accepting whatever the dream wants to tell you. The dream is your best friend, your very own Guru; the higher, wiser part of you whose mission is to introduce you to yourself.  When you welcome it in, it will train you to “see” and to “listen,” while healing, educating and guiding you through the sometimes turbulent and murky waters of life.

Dreaming strives toward wholeness. In a sense it is a very personal art form calling upon our imagination to decode hidden metaphors and clues. Dreams improve sleep, support memory, ward off depression, and notify us of health issues. They confront our anxieties and shortcomings by presenting past issues requiring resolution while pointing to assets we’re not using. Often intersecting with paranormal features they bring us closer to the mysterious nature of consciousness, perhaps facilitating communication from the Collective Unconscious. Non-locality is suggested in that the telepathic dream spans across space; the precognitive dream, across time.

The dream’s greatest benefit is that which transforms and awakens us to our potential. When we’ve reached that joyous summit, our dream terrain may expand our boundaries of consciousness and open to the cosmic realm in which quantum aspects of dreaming are revealed. A further aspect is that of interconnectedness. The fragments in our dreams are perpetually connecting, reflecting us back to ourselves as belonging to both nature and humanity, helping us to face areas of estrangement from self, others, and the planet. In this we experience an emotional depth that embraces human empathy at a divine level.

Dream activity can increase exponentially; the more you dream, the more you will dream.

CYNTHIA:  Thank you so very much for sharing some wonderful tips and information about dreaming!

JUDY:  Cynthia, you’ve asked such important and probing questions. I so appreciate your description of a holographic multiverse of interconnected worlds for it perfectly describes the nature of dreaming. Remember, dreams are our best friends.

CYNTHIA:  Would you be willing to share any favorite books or movies that are special favorites of yours that you’d recommend?

Cynthia Sue Larson Interviews Psychic Medium Andy Myers

Cynthiasuelarson | 22nd Feb 2014

andymyers2014I met Andy Myers at a time travel conference we were both attending in August 2010 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where we had great conversations each morning at breakfast before the conference discussions began. I love meeting people at conferences where it’s clear from the start that we have shared interests, since often it turns out that we have many shared interests–and this was definitely true of me and Andy. I’m so glad that I’ve stayed in touch with Andy these past four years, since I got to be one of the first to read his new book, Flying Paint Rollers from Heaven, and to interview him!
 
CYNTHIA: First of all, I want to thank you for writing such a wonderful book that I am certain will help a great number of people seeking answers to questions that most people tend to feel a bit too embarrassed to ask, even if they knew who they could trust to answer these sorts of questions.
I love how your new book, Flying Paint Rollers from Heaven, is so soothingly down-to-Earth and matter-of-fact about subjects that could otherwise seem unsettling if not outright scary otherwise. What was your initial inspiration for writing this book?
 
ANDY: My reason for writing this book is very simple. It’s my life purpose to help and inspire others. I hope my book provides easy-to-read answers to those seemingly unanswerable questions that keep us up at night. People are naturally curious and have lots of questions, which is why I wrote my book in a question-answer format. Personally, I enjoy reading a wide array of deep, spiritual and metaphysical books, but I also love to laugh. I intentionally wrote Flying Paint Rollers from Heaven in a lighthearted manner. It’s sure to evoke strong emotions, including humor!
 
CYNTHIA:  Your book is immediately accessible, and really does feel like the reader is sitting across the breakfast table from you, chatting and asking questions, and enjoying your company. I really love that aspect of the book, because I’ve had the pleasure of your company at the breakfast table when we were both attending a Language of Spirit conference a few years back! You have such a delightfully relaxed and easy attitude about delving into the spiritual world. What (or who) would you credit this to?
 
ANDY:  It’s funny you say my book reads like a conversation around a breakfast table. While writing it, that’s exactly what I imagined. Although the content of my book is of a deep, spiritual nature, it’s merely a casual dialogue with the reader. My relaxed and curious attitude about metaphysical phenomena stems back to my Grandma Myers. When she was alive, she fostered my interest in the unknown, and always encouraged me to be a truth-seeker. I always feel her with me in spirit when engaged in a thought-provoking discussion.
 
CYNTHIA: There is such a delightful sense of genuine dialogue with the reader you establish in this book, and I’m so glad to hear that much of your inspiration came from someone you clearly love and respect so much, your Grandma Myers. I had a similarly close relationship with my mother’s mother, and I’d love to know if looking back on things she showed you and talked about with you growing up take on a deeper sense of meaning now that you’re so clearly living the life of truth-seeker and truth-teller?
 
ANDY: Yes, I wish I could go back in time and act as a fly on the wall to observe some of the things my grandma told me. Her life experiences were always so fascinating, and she was such a good story-teller. I tried to make Grandma proud in writing my book, as I put a lot of emphasis on telling a good story. All the accounts documented in my book are true events I’ve witnessed. I’ve learned first hand (and my grandma would agree,) that reality can truly be stranger than fiction. Living a life with one foot in the spirit world is a good way to ensure you’ll always encounter plenty of interesting occurrences.
 
CYNTHIA: Would you share one of the interesting events you’ve witnessed?
 
ANDY: Oh boy, where do I begin? Last year, my wife and I came home from a date night, and were frozen in our tracks as we noticed something odd. Our kitchen table had mysteriously been moved three to four feet, and was practically resting in our living room! We could have dismissed it as an accident, and assumed our dog had bumped into the table. However, all four chairs were neatly pushed back into the table, as if a spirit visitor intentionally moved it across the room and had the courtesy to push in the chairs. There’s never a dull moment in the Myers household, but luckily our paranormal experiences are always humorous and whimsical. They’re never scary.
 
CYNTHIA: I’ve heard of table-tipping (mentioned in my April 2013 interview with author Pamela Heath), but table relocation is a new one for me! Do you sometimes find there is meaning or significance in some of these odd events?
 
ANDY: Yes, I believe there is significance in some of these odd events. Often times, these attention-grabbing occurrences act as a little “hello” from our loved ones in Heaven, or even our spirit guides. In other situations, I’ve felt the presence of angels as they intervened to keep me safe from harm. Then again, angels are everywhere. Cynthia, I’m sure you would agree with me that human beings can often act as angels in disguise. God works in mysterious ways.
 
CYNTHIA:  I often find significance in these events as well, often as a kind of a “Hello, there!” kind of wake-up call to be more attentive. One of the things I love so much about you and your book is how your sense of faith and love and that everything is just fine comes right through every sentence and page! How have you gained and deepened your faith in God?
 
ANDY: As I’m sure you would agree, Cynthia, “faith” means different things to different people. I have always believed in a higher power, and my connection with God has always been a personal one. I often pray, and when I speak to God, I talk as if I’m conversing with my best friend. I know that not every prayer can be answered, but it never hurts to put a request in God’s “inbox.” Like others, my faith has gotten me through some pretty tough times. But I also enjoy seeing God in the little things. I see God in the loyalty of my dog, in the vibrant colors of a sunset, and I hear God through inspirational music. These seemingly insignificant parts of life deepen my faith in God every single day.
 
CYNTHIA: I also find miraculous beauty and inspiration in the “little things,” and the immeasurable things, like heartfelt connections to loved ones and nature. I get a sense from reading your book that you truly love sharing spiritual and intuitive insights with people in ways that help them feel less afraid of and more comfortable about topics such as angels and ghosts. What general advice would you offer someone who wishes they could be more certain that, for example, their loved ones who’ve passed away can hear what they’re saying?
 
ANDY: Well, think of it this way. Most of us humans can hear each other and communicate, even though we may not be able to see one another. We do this through e-mail, text messages, and phone calls. I often say that whenever you talk to a loved one in Heaven, they instantly receive a “spiritual text message.” They stop what they’re doing, and tune in to what you’re saying. They’ll find creative and unique ways to communicate back with you, as long as you’re open-minded. In my book, I provide plenty of examples of how those in Heaven speak to us on a daily basis.
 
CYNTHIA: As an intuitive person myself, I truly appreciate how you encourage readers to keep an open mind to signs, messages, and signals that can come through in a variety of ways. I’m able to receive direct communications as clearly as if my deceased loved one is sitting right next to me and telling me something in their familiar tone of voice and choice of words… but I know many people feel frustrated that though they may sense a presence, no clear message comes through. Would you be willing to share a tip or suggestion for those who feel like they’re carrying on one-sided conversations, and wish they could get some kind of real communication from their loved ones who’ve passed on?
 
ANDY: Cynthia, from one intuitive to another, I have to say that your genuine nature and bubbly spirit are easy to see. I know you are a tremendously gifted (and busy) person, so I want to pause here and thank you for your time in conducting this interview. I agree with you that some people feel frustration when they can’t directly “hear” messages from their loved ones in Heaven. I would have two pieces of advice for these individuals. First of all, remember that there are many modes of communication between you and those in Heaven. Messages can be heard, seen, smelled, felt, and even delivered through your nightly dreams. Secondly, have patience. An uplifting sign from a deceased family member may come ten years after their death, but in Heaven, ten years may only seem like a few days to them. Have faith that in time, you’ll get your message. We all do.
 
CYNTHIA: Thanks, Andy! Yes, my life can get busy, and when it does, I do my best to remember to slow down and simplify. Ironically, it seems when we feel the busiest is when we most need the reminders to stay focused on what matters most. One thing I’ve noticed can help us stay on track is being mindful of good selections of books and movies when we have some rest and relaxation time. I’d love to know if you have any favorite books or movies that are special favorites of yours that you’d recommend?
 
ANDY:  I LOVE movies! A guilty pleasure of mine is sneaking off to an afternoon movie on weekdays, when theaters are practically empty. As far as movies, I like anything that involves the big picture. You know, films that really make us question our place in the universe. I like the movies Contact, K-Pax,The Day The Earth Stood Still, and the classic, Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Of course, comedies are also good at the end of a long day. Regarding my favorite books, I’d have to say Conversations with God by Neal Donald Walsch. It’s my all time favorite. I also like any books written byRobert Fulghum. He has a knack for making common life events humorous and inspirational.
 
CYNTHIA: I feel truly honored to have interviewed you, and I’m really grateful for all the tips and insights you’ve shared! How can people find out more about where they can learn more about your new book and how they can stay in touch with you?
 
ANDY:  It’s been a pleasure having this dialogue with you, Cynthia. Please keep up the good work, as this world desperately needs your services and positive energy. People can learn more about my book on my website: www.AndyMyersOnline.com I love to stay in touch with my clients through social media.

Get a Quantum Jump to Make This an Amazing Year

This can be an amazing year for you, regardless of whether or not you made (or broke) any new year’s resolutions. At this time when the placebo effect has mysteriously doubled in efficacy over the past thirty years as people benefit from sugar pills and “sham” surgery so much that Harvard University has created an institute to study the placebo effect… it’s becoming increasingly clear that there is a powerful mind-matter connection.

The mind-matter connection became crystal clear to me in the early 1980s when I came to UC Berkeley as an undergraduate student in the Physics program. At that time, I was one of the very few caucasians in the Physics program, and one of just a handful of women. When I sat down in one of my first lecture halls, surrounded by hundreds of mostly male Asian students, I experienced a very primal sense of fear–a feeling of “you don’t belong here.”

Fortunately, this was a familiar feeling that I’d learned to deal with before, as just two years earlier I’d been the only girl in my high school physics class. One would think such things don’t really matter, except every time a female high school student walked past the windows in our high school physics class, the teacher stopped talking mid-sentence, silence descended upon the class, and all eyes watched the young lady stroll the length of the classroom as she walked past outside.

I’d learned while taking advanced math classes and physics classes in high school to pretend that “lots of young girls just like you do great in math and science,” and this was the same cheery inner pep talk I gave myself that first year as a Physics major at UC Berkeley.

It turns out such an attitude of “faking it ‘til you make it” is enormously useful for all of us as we get older, as scientific studies show that those of us who harbor negative prejudices about old age are statistically more likely to end up the way we presume older people to be. When a group of people were asked to  describe qualities typically found in the elderly, those who expected people to deteriorate over time were found by researchers in this longitudinal study to suffer just such a fate, whereas those who viewed the elderly in more favorable light were statistically more likely to be found prospering and thriving many years later.

If you’re wondering what can possibly account for people being healed by fake surgeries and sugar pills, and aging according to largely subconsciously held prejudices about old people… you’re not alone.

Fortunately for all of us, we’re now living through one of the most exciting times in the history of the world when our entire way of thinking about ourselves in relation to the world is being transformed. We’re now at the dawn of the Quantum Age, which was officially ushered in back in September 2013 when Google and NASA’s Ames Research Center purchased the first quantum computer, the D-Wave Two, for $17 million. Thanks to a modicum of transparency with the US government financing of part of this project, we can now track some of the progress in quantum programing at the QUantum Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (QUAIL) at NASA.

So what’s the big deal about this being the dawn of the Quantum Age, and how does that relate to this being such a great year for you?

I was inspired to write my newest book, Quantum Jumps: An Extraordinary Science of Happiness and Prosperity, after seeing a convergence in results from a number of scientific studies showing that quantum phenomena such as superposition of states, entanglement, and teleportation are happening on the macroscopic, human scale. The significance of such phenomena was not lost on me, since for the past fifteen years I’ve been conducting surveys and sharing first-hand reports of a wide variety of seemingly inexplicable experiences through the RealityShifters.com web site. What’s truly exciting now is that thanks to findings from a variety of scientific studies, it’s clear that:

  1. We most likely live in a holographic multiverse of interconnected parallel possible worlds, and
  2. Quantum effects are now being regularly observed on the macroscopic scale (so for example, we can witness quantum entanglement in diamonds that we can hold in our hands).

When we consider some of the quantum phenomena we’re now witnessing in the natural world in birds navigational abilities, in the way plants photosynthesize, and even in the way our very own noses work, we begin to see how we are receiving extraordinary insights into how we benefit from quantum entanglement, quantum coherence, and quantum superposition of states in our everyday lives. Nature shows us that quantum processing is built into plants and animals in such a way that provides something akin to intuitive reasoning that is an integral part of optimizing efficiency in a number of ways. Plants are able to instantly determine the most efficient way to transform a photon to stored energy, by doing something akin to simultaneously comparing all possible pathways, and choosing the best.

For us humans, this kind of natural efficiency is a bit like telling ourselves when taking a test, “You know the answer to this,” and then doing significantly better as a result. In fact, scientists have proven that this type of placebo treatment does indeed improve peoples’ test scores.

Put another way, we can consider the ways that quantum effects can improve our daily lives as doing something American psychologist William James once stated as, “If you want a quality, act as if you already have it.”

So one of the best ways to make this year one of your best years yet is simply to tell yourself that is exactly what is happening now. See what happens when you think or say aloud:

This is one of the best years of my life. 

And just for good measure, feel free to add my favorite open-ended question:

How good can it get?!
