How Good Can it Get?

Be Yourself

"If you're able to be yourself, then you have no competition. All you have to do is get closer and closer to that essence."
— Barbara Cook

When you watch groups of young children and groups of adults play, chances are you will notice how children have freedom of personal expression. Children are less prone to worry about whether their socks match or they say just the right thing, and are more likely to spontaneously do and say things that inspires them. We recognize inspiration when we see it in performers and artists, and we appreciate feeling the very essence of who we are when we are engaged in doing what we love with those we love. Finding the essence of who you are can be found through play, meditation, and asking yourself who you truly are.

Just as you could discern the difference between a human being and a physical zombie that looks and behaves like a human, but has no human conscious states, you can tell when you feel like you’re being fully yourself. Being yourself includes focusing on what matters to you, and caring about those you love. There’s a sparkle in your eye and a spring in your step when you’re being yourself that is just about completely the opposite from how you feel when going through the motions without feeling fully involved. And when you feel fully involved, you are most likely to experience some of the most amazing reality shifts and quantum jumps.

I was mulling over what matters most to me a few days ago, appreciating to myself how I feel certain that every good thing comes from Spirit, comes from God. I was feeling deeply appreciative of how health, wealth, happiness, luck, and wisdom seem empty to me without Spirit—without God. I was driving my car while feeling this sense of reverence and deep connection, when I heard a sudden "Pow!" noise, followed by intermittent hissing and a kind of "Thwup-thwup-thwup" sound as the steering became less fluid and the front right side of the car went slightly down—the distinctive sound and felt the distinctive feel of my car’s right front tire going flat.

"Oh, no,” I thought, as I found a clear place to pull the car over and park. I got out of the driver’s side door and walked around the front of my car to inspect the right front tire. What I saw confounded me—the right front tire looked good. I walked back to the driver’s side door, and then thought to myself, “No way!” and returned to take a second look, much closer this time. The tire appeared to be completely inflated, with no indication of any type of trouble. From what I’d just felt and heard, including during the time I’d driven seeking a safe place to pull over and park, I expected to see the car had been driving on a deflated tire, riding on the rim of the right front wheel. But there was no mistaking that this tire looked good. I returned again to the driver’s side, sat down behind the wheel, started the engine, and slowly pulled back onto the road, listening with windows open for any unusual sounds. With heightened sensitivity, I heard the gravelly noise of tires rolling over asphalt—apparently the normal noise of driving down the street.

I checked the tire at the parking garage, and again when I got home—and every time I looked, I saw that it was fine. As the flat tire had vanished before I’d seen it, the memory of what I heard and felt seemed more distant. I began to doubt that I’d really heard and felt a flat tire, but also had a nagging suspicious that it might actually be flat, and the air pressure should be checked. After all tires were checked, I was stunned to learn that one of them was fully inflated to manufacturer’s specifications—the right front tire! All the rest were slightly deflated, as is normal after having driven for some time.

One might think I’d be properly wowed by all this, but instead I found this reality shift a bit hard to wrap my mind around. I thought to myself, “You must be confused. You must be mistaken. No way could something like this happen—it’s just too unusual, to improbable. I’ve never heard of such a thing. Therefore, it’s much more likely that for some bizarre reason I mistakenly heard and felt indications that seemed to suggest my car was experiencing a flat tire, when it actually wasn’t.” Part of the reason I initially disregarded such a miraculous reality shift had to do with the way I was able to remember hearing and feeling a flat tire—and also at the same time feeling that was a distant far-off reality, due to my feeling this reality shift was just a bit too far out, even for me.

The next day, I learned my phone answering machine was full of messages—dating back to 2012! I like to archive some of the messages from friends and family before erasing them from the answering machine, and I’d just two months earlier transferred the phone recordings. So how could the machine be full of messages again? I found my cassette tape and recorder, and froze in confusion and astonishment as I held them in my hands. The batteries in my tape recorder were old and starting to leak, the cassette tape cases were dusty, and my handwriting on the cassette indicated I’d last archived phone messages in 2012. After the batteries were replaced in the tape recorder, I heard a recording of my own voice ending the last recorded phone messages stating the year was 2012. “What?! This doesn’t make sense—I just transferred phone messages a couple of months ago!” I had replaced the batteries, dusted all the cassette cases, written notes on the cassette, recorded my voice with the year 2015—but now there was no record of any of that. The dust, my voice on the recording saying 2012 , and my handwriting on the cassette with the 2012 date all begged to differ with what I knew to be true, but now had no record for.

After finding a new cassette tape to record on, with the message transfer once more underway, I wondered, “What on Earth is the point of having to do all this work over again?!” I then remembered how I’d disregarded the miracle I’d just experienced with my instantly-repaired flat tire. While it is true that car miracles tend to be more common—probably partly due to people being in relaxed, meditative states of mind while driving—this car miracle was different. I’d just started driving and was engaged in heartfelt morning prayers that morning. I was in a very high state of grace, rather than relaxed meditation, feeling about the highest level of reverence and rapture I can sustain while driving a car. This is probably the most important detail in my experience, since it feels a lot to me like "God fixed my flat tire. Instantly. With perfect inflation to exact manufacturer specs." I've never before had a reality shift quite like this one, which is probably why I felt initially inclined to dismiss it—since it seems so improbable as to feel it’s almost impossible.

When feeling the frustration of having to do the work of transferring phone messages all over again, while observing how my methodical record-keeping was so different than expected (notes on the cassette tape showing 2012 rather than 2015, voiceover recording of the 2012 date, and placement of the tape after the last transfer of messages, with dust over everything as if it had been sitting undisturbed for years) really drove home the point for me that there is no limit to how big or fast things can change. Even and including instantaneously fixed flat tires that get fixed faster than you can even see! Especially when you've just been thanking God with all your heart and soul for bringing every good thing to be.

Being yourself is a process of discovering just how good your life can be when you stay focused on how good your life can get. Keep asking “How good can it get?!” as you focus on how you can utilize your unique gifts in service to the world at the highest level possible. By acknowledging a sense of how your life can be much larger and more fulfilling than ever before, you access the level of infinite, eternal consciousness where the most extraordinary reality shifts and quantum jumps occur.

How to Break Cell Phone Addiction
Have you noticed signs of cell phone addiction in yourself or others? Maybe you’ve tried to get someone’s attention, and found they were so deeply ensconced in their cellphone that they were completely oblivious to you and pretty much everyone and everything around them. Or perhaps you’ve noticed you’re spending just a bit too much time on your phone when you dozed off with cellphone in hand, texted someone standing next to you, or grabbed your phone before doing anything else when you woke up. Cell phones can do a marvelous job of helping us stay connected with friends, family, and colleagues, but they can also be a bit addictive. Good news! You can break the addiction to constantly check your cell phone by utilizing the concept of the Quantum Zeno mechanism for mental control over bodily action. Dr. Henry Stapp describes a little bit about how this works in a paper he presented at the 2014 Foundations of Mind conference, Mind, Brain and Neuroscience, about a way of better understanding the role of free will. Dr. Henry Stapp, a colleague of Wolfgang Pauli and Werner Heisenberg, emphasizes the significance of our choices in influencing the realities we experience: Read the full post here:

Dr. Bob Rich and Cynthia Sue Larson
Interview with Cynthia Sue Larson on the nature of the universe
After writing a review for my book, Quantum Jumps, author, mudsmith and psychologist Dr. Bob Rich asked my permission to interview me. He asked some questions that nobody has previously asked me, such as, "What was it like to be a female Physics student at University?” and we had a fascinating conversation about anomalous events, teleportation, quantum technologies and consciousness. You can join the dialogue by adding comments, questions, observations and ideas in the comment section at the bottom of this interview, and I would love to know what you think!
The interview starts like this:

BOB: What was it like to be a female Physics student at University?

CYNTHIA: I’d love to say "No big deal," but the truth is I felt keenly aware of being one of a handful of women physics majors at UC Berkeley. I was painfully shy during my college years, so I mostly remember wishing I could just blend in, while knowing that was simply not going to be an option, when there were just five or six women physics majors total on campus. I remember having an initial sinking feeling with mostly subconscious doubts along the lines of, “Women must not be good at physics,” followed immediately by my conscious thoughts of, “Lots of women just like me are great at physics!” I’m glad I talked back to my subconscious doubts, because that gave me enough of an emotional energy boost to do my best.

The New Science of Instant Transformation
Quantum jumping is an everyday experience for us each time we jump out of bed on mornings we’d rather not get up, or feel noticeable improvement when our mother puts a Band-Aid on our knee and "kisses the boo-boo better." Shamans utilize quantum jumping when they assist people with healing, and the ever-increasing “placebo effect” in modern-day western medicine indicates people are increasingly accessing parallel worlds where they are healthy and well. Feeling stuck in a dead-end job or relationship, or longing for a fresh new start in life? Quantum Jumping shows how if you can imagine or dream it, you can take a leap into a wonderful new world. Quantum jumps require both a flash of insight that a new reality is possible, and a burst of sufficient energy to make the leap. Those decisive instants when we feel simultaneously energized by knowledge of a better reality and inspired to act are the moments that we make quantum jumps.

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Woman Miraculously Recovered After Stillbirth
Fayetteville, North Carolina, USA

In 1962 I was a young doctor in Colombia, South America; just out of medical school. After completing my year of internship, we were required then to work in a rural area for one year prior to getting the MD degree, and I chose Barichara, a beautiful small town, which had a nice hospital. I was the only doctor in town and on Nov 24, I got a call from the mother superior, Sister Teresa who was the administrator of the hospital, to let me know that she had received a phone call telling her that there was a woman on the way to the hospital, coming from a farm up in the mountains who was ready to deliver a baby but had been bleeding for 2 days and was very sick. The only way to get her to the hospital was by horseback and the husband was bringing her. I asked her to let me know as soon as she got to the hospital. Around 6 pm the woman arrived and I was there within 5 minutes. When I examined her, I noted she was in shock, no blood pressure, pulse hardly palpable, very week and extremely pale from anemia caused by persistent bleeding. She looked more like a dead body. The fetus had no heart beat, it was already dead. I determined that the only chance she had was to perform an immediate cesarean section. Since she was unconscious, I did not bother to give her a spinal anesthesia. I removed the dead fetus, and as if this were not enough, as I was doing the surgery I realized she had developed a fatal complication called consumption coagulopathy, a condition in which the blood loses the ability to clot and it is impossible to stop the bleeding. The uterus had a generalized oozing that could not be stopped with sutures. I felt that she probably had no more blood left to lose. During the whole procedure she never had a blood pressure, and we were unable to transfuse her because the equipment we had requested had not arrived. For all practical purposes she was dead, except that she had an occasional breath. Knowing that there was no hope, I closed the uterus, but did not bother to close the fascia or muscles, just closed the skin. I talked to Sister Teresa about the hopeless situation, but, she insisted that she would not die. I said to her: Sister, If she does not die I will quit medicine because all that they have taught me is false. The next morning I came to make rounds. I asked Sister Teresa at what time she had died. She had a grin in her face as she said: I told you she would make it, you just don’t have faith, come I will show you. I found the patient sitting up in bed, having breakfast. Her chicks were pink, she was cheerful, had no further bleeding and the inner aspect of her eye lids were red. Vital signs were normal, she had obviously materialized out of thin air at least 6 units of blood !!! I had to take her to the OR the next day to close her surgical wound adequately. She left the hospital a few days later, her wound well healed, happy, as though nothing had happened. To this day, I have no explanation for that miracle. It is possible that Sister Teresa’s faith was so unshaken that she switched to a parallel universe where the patient never bled?

Note from Cynthia: Thank you so very much for sharing with me the letter to Ms. Owens, recounting your remarkable miraculous experience in Columbia in 1962. I appreciate your recollection of precise details regarding the medical condition of the pregnant woman in your care at that time, and your honest assessment that with the serious condition of consumption coagulopathy, her prognosis looked grim. Yes, this does appear to be an example of consciousness moving to another parallel reality in which the woman could fully recover. It's been my experience that the presence of a person of faith can be highly conducive to miraculous healing results, which seems to have been the case at this time. I find your first-hand account to be tremendously inspirational and uplifting, as well as providing well-documented evidence of a remarkable medical miracle--and quantum jump.


When My Room Changed
United Kingdom

I wanted to briefly relate an experience that happened to me a couple of days ago. Basically I went out for the afternoon and when I returned I went into my bedroom and froze! The whole room felt slightly different. Indeed, my bedside cabinet was angled slightly differently, the chair looked like it had been moved and some books on the other bedside cabinet looked like they were in a different place. It all felt so different that I thought I had disturbed a thief. I went round the apartment but there were no signs of a disturbance and everything was locked form the inside (wooden Italian window shutters have locks on them) and in any case I live at the top of a condo with a sheer drop to the ground that even Spiderman might find a bit of a challenge. So ... maybe I had stepped into a different place? But why? and how? and to what purpose? Prior to this experience, I had spent some weeks strongly wanting to get free from a specific personal situation that had occupied my mind a lot. Prior to returning home on that day, I had been in a very emotionally charged situation. This situation does feel different now actually. Maybe I'm putting 2 and 2 together and coming-up with 5! Dunno - was a strange experience though.

Note from Cynthia: Strong emotions are often associated with powerful reality shift experiences--so it makes sense to me that you'd just been through a very emotionally charged situation after strongly desiring a change in a specific personal situation.

Entry Code Change
Winslow, Maine, USA

Cynthia, I find Reality Shifting bizarre and not a little unsettling since it's happened to me several times in my life. The most recent event happened this week when I tried to gain access to my workplace via the numeric keypad attached to the outside wall. I punched in the usual four digit combination, as I had done for months prior, only to be rewarded with the red LED of no admittance, instead of the welcoming green. The door remained stubbornly locked, and after several more failed attempts I went inside by a different entrance with a different code. Later in the day I tracked down the maintenance department and asked them what the new code was. They denied the code had been changed. Feeling a bit spooked I left them, went outside, and tried the code I knew, only to again be met with a locked door. Eerily, a coworker arrived at that moment, saw my fumbling, and easily entered the code for us both to get inside. She recited it aloud for my benefit, perhaps thinking I had forgotten. The only thing was, the new code had a single digit different from the one I knew. Such a subtle reality shift, such a tiny blip of change, but I am wondering what else has been altered in my environment, indeed, the whole world at large? Are words in my books changed, new, or omitted? Are the fluid levels in my car different? Are my colleagues different versions of the ones I've worked with who now have alternate memories of me? Was there a single event somewhere, somewhen which has fractured spacetime in this manner? Is this all a side-effect of DNA division? Or the cause? Whatever the origin, it is a most peculiar phenomenon in that the shifts are minute, small change sort of alterations which don't send the general population into panic. They just fascinate and provide stock for wonder and maybe a little worry. I have a copy of Reality Shifts that I found engrossing. Now, hopefully it's the same version that you actually remember writing—That’s the thing, isn't it? Personally, I'd feel even more unnerved if things suddenly appeared from nowhere, like the sausages you mentioned. It's a matter of trust in the universe, I suppose. If stuff comes and goes, winks in and out of existence, how does one dare to take a step?! Rags and riches woven from the same illusory cloth which unravels with deep inspection. I suspect someone elsewhere has already put together a quantum computer and turned it on, and the wretched machine is overwriting everything everywhere because its memory core is infinite with data containment failure.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for writing to me about the change in building access code at your workplace. Yes, very often reality shifts can be subtle ones with very minor changes from what had been familiar before--and sometimes they can be much bigger, such as influence life-and-death. As I've written in my book, Reality Shifts, words in books definitely can change. I've previously reported incidents experienced by myself and others in the RealityShifters ezine of movie content changing--sometimes even the most significant scenes in movies have changed, which can also influence the duration and length of a movie. Fluid levels in your car can indeed be different, or as happened for me yesterday, a tire that had just gone flat with a sound of rolling on tire rims being instantly changed to a tire that is now the most inflated tire on my car (I pulled over right away to inspect the tire, and again checked it later that day). I discuss in both my books Reality Shifts and Quantum Jumps the ways that yes, your colleagues most likely are different versions of the ones you've worked with who do have different alternate memories of you--and this is also true of your early childhood friends and family members. Rather than a single fracturing event, this is part of the intrinsic quantum logic nature of reality itself, which mankind is only now fully beginning to appreciate, thanks to our search for scientific and technological mastery of quantum physics required to build, operate, and program quantum computers.

Colmans Mustard
Opened Box of Mustard is Sealed Again
Bournemouth, Dorset, UK

On 11th June 2015, I made up some mustard to accompany a meal I was preparing. I prefer to make mustard from the powder rather than use the already prepared tube variety. I had 2 boxes of mustard in the cupboard, as I mistakenly bought and opened another one some time ago, thinking I needed a new box. Since both boxes were now opened, I thought I would use the contents of the soonest to expire box first, in this case, the one that had a ‘best before date’ of October 2015. The other box has a best before date of August 2016. Anyway, I reached into the cupboard and brought out both boxes, just as I had a number of times before. But this time, I was surprised to see that one of the boxes was sealed. This was the box that I was going to use and had last made mustard from only 2 days before! I was amazed to see that its seal was now intact. I remember that I opened it a while back, cutting around the seal with a sharp knife. Now the box remains in its new unopened state as I write this, a week later. Will it stay that way? Well, for the moment at least, it’s a tangible reminder and ‘proof’ for me that alternative reality states really do exist. It's strange about the mustard. There was a significant time between buying both- I can't remember how long. But the spooky bit is that on 9th June when I made mustard and when both boxes were unsealed, I had the lids off of both boxes and was thinking how funny it was to have 2 boxes opened as well as wondering which box would provide better tasting mustard. Silly really, but it was memorable and helps me trust my 'memory' and experience on this peculiar happening. (Or was I dreaming then, or in an altered state, I ask myself!) Anyway, as soon as I bought and got the second box home I opened it then got mildly irritated when I noticed that there was already an opened one in the cupboard.

Note from Cynthia: That's amazing that you remember having opened both boxes of mustard, having opened a second one accidentally before realizing you already had a box in the cupboard--and then subsequently noticed only one box of mustard had been opened!

Bilocation Experience
Bournemouth, Dorset, UK

During my 20’s and early 40’s especially, a number of different people on separate occasions told me that they saw me in other places doing different things. They sometimes said they spoke with me too and that ‘I’ was usually outdoors in nature somewhere. At these times, however, I knew that I couldn’t have been in these places because I remembered consciously where I was in each case. I never took these ‘stories’ seriously before, but now, having read your newsletter and Reality Shifts and Quantum Jumps books, I’m wondering if I really could have been in two places at once! I'd most likely be in my favourite place if it's related to daydreaming. Nature is where I most want to be and feel most connected. A funny peculiar thing with these events was that people said they were convinced it was me and that my name was "Ruth" and they knew this because they spoke to 'me'. I always used to laugh this off and say something like, "oh yeah, that's my twin sister skiving off work again". I don't have a twin of course, but it's spooky how different people came up to me with similar stories calling me Ruth and saying how they saw me in nature whenever it was. Each time I made a joke but then told them seriously that it wasn't me and my name wasn't Ruth. Very strange.

Note from Cynthia: I love how typically when people observed you in places other than where you knew for sure you'd been at the time--they saw you out in nature somewhere. That makes sense to me, since the times I've been observed bilocating have corresponded to times I've been daydreaming, and I can easily imagine daydreaming about being out in nature!

A Miraculous Journey
Bournemouth, Dorset, UK

Some years ago, when I used to do onsite massage work in the corporate world, I remember that on one particular occasion, I had a very remarkable journey. That day, I had a contract to work in a large office in Docklands, London. At the time, I lived in Loughton, Essex. As I got ready to leave my flat that morning, I got out my large A to Z map so I could plan the route. I was fairly relaxed about this, since I thought to myself, “OK, this contract is in Walthamstow, and I know that well enough, so finding this place should be easy”. Well, of course, I got the location wrong! On checking the venue’s address, I panicked as I realised it was a further distance away than I thought, and in a very unfamiliar area for me. I wondered how on earth I could arrive there on time. I was suddenly stressed and embarrassed at the thought of letting down the other massage team members as well as the event’s organiser. I also knew that if I didn’t show up, I’d never get another contract with this group again. Somehow I had to get there on time! There was no time to call a taxi or even plan the route. So I made a decision, crazy though it sounds, to just surrender, let go and hand over to ‘Spirit’. I trusted that a higher wisdom already knew the way to this place and was perfectly capable of taking me there. I got in my car, and without even looking at the map, I prayed to be taken to the car park right by the offices I was to work in that day. I asked to be taken there safely and with enough time to spare so I could set up my massage table and get myself ready to see the full schedule of clients that had already been booked in to see me for the day. I remember driving off in the right direction and then praying with such an intensity and sense of trust. I handed over. I drove. I went down streets and found myself in areas I’d never been in before. One road in particular had a very strange quality about it. It was narrow, very long, eerily quiet and strangely devoid of other cars! I just kept driving and praying. After a while, I had a feeling sense that my journey was coming to an end. Then I somehow ‘knew’ I had to stop very soon, since I was close to my destination. I looked around for a place to park. The area was very busy with cars, but as I approached a roundabout, I noticed there was a petrol station just by it. I decided to stop there, just to discover where I was! I pulled over and parked. I went into the shop. I asked a man by the counter if he knew where the venue was, showing him my paper with the address written on it. He said, “it’s over there”, as he pointed to a large building just the other side of the roundabout. It was easily visible from where I was standing. He told me I could also park there, right outside the building in the large car park provided for employees there. I was astonished, but I don’t think I let it show. I thanked him and quickly got back into the car. I knew I had to keep focused as my journey wasn’t over yet. As I pulled into the car park and parked in a slot just a few feet away from the entrance, I noticed I was 20 minutes early! I went into reception, and had my visitor pass organised. I got to the event room and set up my table. I had time to get ready and then began work. The day went very well. When it was time to go home, I had a long journey back. I was often stuck in traffic and it all seemed like a busy, noisy and normal journey across London- very different to the 'other worldly' one that I had had that morning. To this day, I still have questions in my mind about how it was even possible. The times didn’t fit- I should have been late. The odd street I went down- I don’t think it was in ‘this world’. And I can’t prove a thing and I’m careful who I tell this story to. But for me, it’s an example of how anything is possible with Spirit, if I can just get myself out of the way. My miraculous journey was dream like but it was a specific event with many other people involved and not a dream (as I understand it!) The most amazing thing for me is that I got there at all and without a map or sat nav. Normally, I have no sense of direction whatsoever. Thanks for your work, it's helping to keep me feeling sane!

Note from Cynthia: Wow, I adore how you describe this experience! I love reading how you recognized a need to move your consciousness to a state of surrender to higher levels of awareness, and subsequently experienced an extraordinary, dream-like drive in which you ended up arriving early enough with very little traffic or traffic-related issues to contend with. I've had a similar experience once while walking in downtown San Francisco, realizing I'd missed meeting my friends in time to know which restaurant they were going to for lunch--but I surrendered to a feeling of trust and love and higher consciousness, and let my feet walk me to where they were. And remembering having done that is one of the high points in my life.


(5) Questions and Answers

I'm in a really extremely tough situation for something I did that I really shouldn't have done. I want to know how to change the past and change what I did so I can remove this situation from my life.
— Aaron

Dear Aaron,
While we constantly change our past, most of us are not consciously aware of doing so, nor do we typically make radical changes to events we're emotionally entangled with. The reason being is the emotional entanglement typically is part and parcel of a quantum physics entanglement, meaning once we're reacting so strongly on an emotional level to something, it's like a dog with a bone that just won't drop that bone no matter what. So my best advice to you is to make peace with yourself emotionally, moving toward a state of acceptance and forgiveness of yourself, with an end goal of getting to a place of 100% acceptance and forgiveness for yourself, at which point you'll be detached, and can actually "drop the bone" of that unfortunate past. There are significant spiritual advantages to attaining a state of relaxed, energized detachment for its own sake, and that's really the best reason to meditate and engage in spiritual practice--rather than trying to achieve a goal with your spiritual practice. So start meditating, tell yourself, "I love and forgive and accept myself, no matter what," and get started on this spiritual journey. Whether or not you get proof that the past has changed, you'll be making tremendously positive improvements that will benefit you on every level in your life.
lots of love,

I’ve recently seen evidence of reality shifts
after watching your videos. Ironically a day or two before I heard of you I had worked out the possibility that reality was as you described between my interest in physics and recently found interest in the law of attraction as taught by Abraham-Hicks. With all of this awareness and vibrational evidence and positive things that have happened I’m extremely excited. I have one serious concern. Is there a space time boom when I shift into different realities. I’m trying to be in a reality in which I’m successful and with my soulmate. I don’t want any negative butterfly effect like impacts from me shifting into that reality. Literally minutes after sending you the last email in a video I was watching a man ask, “Am I in a f**ing alternate universe?” While that’s humorous, all the signs of me ending up in different universes are a bit startling. How do you stay grounded in an ever changing world? When you’re constantly shifting how can you tell which reality you’re from? Better yet how can you tell which one you’re in?
— Brandon

Dear Brandon,
The experience of noticing reality shifts frequently is indeed quite startling at first, but it is possible to become much more aware that this is the true nature of reality, and that "I" am my consciousness--not any particular reality or particular parallel universe. How we can "tell which one we are in" is thus a matter of knowing that we're capable of being in all of them--yet the "me" and "you" we truly are is not the physical reality in any of them, but rather our consciousness. Such are the teachings of the perennial wisdom traditions, and this new awareness also matches the new information we are gleaning from quantum physics, as I describe in my book, Quantum Jumps: An Extraordinary Science of Happiness and Prosperity.
lots of love,

Reality Shifts
I found your site about reality shifting and was just wondering if you've ever heard of few people all shifting realities. Into the same new one. Thanks,
— Breona

Dear Breona,
Yes, I've documented cases in which several people have shared a reality shift experience--noticing something has definitely changed in a big way. Some of these experiences are documented in my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World.
With love and thanks,
— Cynthia

Hi Cynthia,
I’ve just read and enjoyed your book Quantum Jumps. You mentioned meditating—what method or style of meditation do you use? Warm Regards,
— Peter

Dear Peter,
I regularly practice several different types of meditation, including one that's on my Aura Healing Meditations CD, walking meditations, and meditations focused on breathing and clearing my mind. I recently shared How I Start My Day with a description of my current morning meditation for the Times of India.
lots of love,

Do the Clearing

Do the Clearing:
A Step-by-Step Guide to Living a Happy Life and Getting What You Want

by John Benz

How to clear possessions, thoughts, and obstacles to your ideal life

Therapist John Benz is no stranger to self-help programs, having attended Weight Watchers meetings since age five. When Benz observed a connection between emotions his clients felt related to their possessions, and discovered that people who took steps to remove their disempowering possessions made the most progress toward attaining their goals, he took a closer look at the art of clearing. While the concept of clearing is not entirely new--and feng shui practitioners have been advising for years that we pay closer attention to the objects around us and how they are arranged at work and at home--few people explain just how powerful the process of clearing out disempowering items can truly be. The concept of clearing is simple. Honestly assess how you feel and what comes to mind when you systematically view each item in your home, and toss out everything that doesn't contribute to feeling happy and good about yourself. Benz appreciates that such a simple idea can sound almost crazy, but points out that "if the memories associated with their possessions reinforced that identity, that's exactly what they thought and what ultimately became true." For those of us aware of recent research in fields of embodied cognition and the placebo effect, it's not such a stretch to recognize the immense and well-documented power of associating who we think we are with what we are doing, and cues from our surroundings. How we feel about our coffee table, bookshelves, clocks, vases, and dinnerware are therefore tremendously influential in how well we stick to our diet, master new skills, and achieve our dreams of living healthier, happier, more prosperous lives. One of the things I like best about "Do the Clearing" is the down-to-Earth way this book shares experiences people have had in clearing rooms in their house, and immediately noticing obvious improvements in their lives. My other favorite thing about this book is how it emphasizes the importance of making the power question part of your life, long after your first clearing is done. I love how Benz points out that people become accustomed to feeling deflated, low-energy, and uninspired, often without recognizing the contributing factors of how everything in sight is energetically influencing them. Benz appreciates that many people may initially think that clearing their possessions sounds crazy. He then points out the importance of the power question--does the item in question make you feel powerful? If yes, it stays. If no, it goes. Benz explains, "If you are feeling powerless, swept along by the current, then remember that possessions have power." He continues, "Use what's around you to your advantage. Clear what isn't powerful, and create a current that steers you toward the life you want." While the idea of clearing is simple, and the seven steps straightforward and easy to do, much of the value of this book comes from the wonderful pointers and tips for overcoming potential pitfalls along the way of clearing out possessions, and then clearing out residual thoughts. Some of these potential pitfalls include involving other people in your clearing process, as outside support can be tricky. You might feel tempted, for example, to give things to neighbors, relatives or friends--yet this is mostly likely not in your best interest. The idea here is to remove obstacles to feeling powerless--not to see reminders of powerlessness from time to time. At this point, you're likely wondering how well the ideas in this book actually work for me. As is so often the case in my life, days before hearing about this book, I'd synchronistically felt inspired to do what it prescribes. I'd cleared out some items in my kitchen that had little to do with me, and immediately noticed feeling an unexpected surge of positive energy. While I've yet to do a complete clearing, I am now making the power question a regular part of my life. I highly recommend "Do the Clearing" for everyone!
