Changing the Physical Universe With Our Thoughts and Feelings

Shifting Reality by Asking Questions

Dean & Cynthia
IONS researcher Dr. Dean Radin & Cynthia Sue Larson
in specially shielded room

When I gave a talk last week at the Health & Harmony Festival in Santa Rosa, I was greatly impressed with how quickly people grasped the significance of reality shifts as being the source of synchronicity, remote healing, and manifestation -- and how reality shifts act as a reflection of our inner sense of harmony or angst. I could tell how well people understood my presentation by the high quality of questions they asked at the end of my talk.

This month I've been asked some truly wonderful questions such as, "What can I do when what I am feeling disappointed in what I am creating in my life?", and "How much of an effect does destiny or fate have in influencing what happens?", and "If so many of us are praying for things to get better... why does it seem like they keep going wrong?" Good questions are the heart and soul of good science, and the seeds from which wisdom springs.

When Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) researcher Dean Radin asks good questions like, "Do people physiologically react to randomly generated external stimuli before the stimuli occur?", he leaps into action and creates experiments which systematically test precognition. To rule out possible visual cues or other electromagnetic effects, subjects are placed in a comfortable chair in a specially screened room which is draped with esthetically pleasing curtains to help experimental subjects feel as much at home as possible (considering probes are attached to their bodies). You can participate in this research by visiting http://www.gotpsi.org/, and read more about scientific experiments exploring psychokinesis and extra-sensory perception in Radin's excellent book THE CONSCIOUS UNIVERSE.

The secret of asking good questions is that whatever we ask with a clear intention to find out and power with true desire to know the answer, will be answered. Any time I ask a question, even silently to myself, the answer comes zooming back to me -- sometimes even before I've finished asking the question! I find myself hearing a news story about my object of inquiry, seeing something in print on the topic, or synchronistically meeting a subject matter expert on it. Failing these wonderful sources, I'll see license plates that spell out the answer, or flip whatever book is nearby open to some random page and read a passage that appears to be written as a direct reply to my query. This effect has intensified greatly as I've increased the amount of meditation I do each day, and practiced keeping my thoughts as clear as possible of frustration or anger about the past and worries and fears about the future. I'm still human, so I still get worried and frustrated -- but I carry less "dirty energy" around me on a constant basis.

We start our lives with our full cosmic energy body powers shining brightly and no "dirty energy" in our energy fields -- and when we take care to renew our energetic health, we can restore these creative abilities to their full strength. This is possible in spite of whatever socialization and education we've received along the way, provided we open our minds to new possibilities. Witnessing or even reading about reality shifts can be the key to helping you open your minds and heart to miracles, and the idea that you can be and are a very important part of them. And if you find yourself wondering, "Now how can that be?"... get ready to find out!

Wishing you all the best,
Cynthia Sue Larson

Tune Up Your Chakras & Shift Into Higher Love

When any of us becomes more conscious of our ability to change the way we perceive in order to change the world, it uplifts us all in the web of life.

Odyssey Finds Water Ice in Abundance Under Mars' Surface

Using instruments on NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft, surprised scientists have found enormous quantities of buried treasure lying just under the surface of Mars -- enough water ice to fill Lake Michigan twice over. And that may just be the tip of the iceberg.

Airborne Bugs 'May Control our Weather'

A team of University of East London (UEL) researchers believe the airborne bugs may be behind the formation of clouds and rainfall. The ability to manipulate the environment in this way would facilitate the microbes' dispersal and reproduction, the UK scientists claim. Using a 130,000 grant the team plans to spend 18 months testing the theory that a self-sustaining ecosystem exists in clouds. The study will also help scientists understand the movement of airborne pathogens like foot-and-mouth.

Mood Linked To Cognitive Abilities

In a study of how human emotional states influence higher mental abilities, cognitive neuroscientists at Washington University in St. Louis have shown that watching even 10 minutes of classic horror films or prime-time television comedies can have a significant short-term influence on areas of the brain critical for reasoning, intelligence, and other types of higher cognition. "To have the best mental performance and the most efficient pattern of brain activity, you need a match between the type of mood you are in and the type of task you are doing," said Jeremy Gray, Ph.D., a Research Scientist in the Psychology Department in Arts & Sciences and lead author of the study.

Writing to heal

By helping people manage and learn from negative experiences, writing strengthens their immune systems as well as their minds.

A bright future for PNI

Psychologists' work in the field of psychoneuroimmunology is expanding the understanding of how psychosocial factors can protect or damage our health.

A New Thinking Emerges About Consciousness: Descartes Notwithstanding, Some Neuroscientists Find the Answer in Chemistry, Not Philosophy

By Shankar Vedantam What is consciousness? French philosopher Rene Descartes suggested that consciousness is like an "observer" in the head, separate from the physical brain. In recent years, philosophers studying cognition began to call this "the hard problem."

(2) Your Reality Shift Stories

Thanks to all of you who have shared a reality shift story with us from wherever you are in the world!

Your stories help to remind us of the amazing things that are possible and the opportunities that can open up when reality shifts in our lives. Together, our experiences help us better understand what is going on in this amazing, conscious universe.

New York

Your site is amazing. I never knew that these things happened at all and that there are even websites about them. Then I got to thinking and realized that maybe some reality shifts have happened to me.

My grandfather passed away six years ago after a long illness. His brother passed away a couple of weeks ago and on the day that his brother (my great uncle) was being waked I was walking to work and was thinking of my grandfather and how much I missed him. I was lost in thought for a while but when I looked up, there was an old man walking towards me wearing a long overcoat and a fedora (my grandfather always wore a fedora, and these days you never see anyone wearing them) I thought that was weird. As the man got closer, I realized he didn't look like my grandfather, but he reminded me of him by what he was wearing. The man made complete eye contact with me and I can't explain the chill that went through my body, it was like I felt the presence of my grandfather, I 'd never felt like that before. After he passed me I was literally shaking. And before I even turned around, I said to myself "Imagine if the man I just seen is gone, wouldn't that be weird?" and sure enought I turned around and the street behind me was empty. It was the most bizarre experience I've ever had, but it made me happy because I know, I just KNOW my grandfather was there with me for a split second.

Thanks for letting me share!

Istanbul, Turkey

Just went through your ezine, and as usual enjoyed it very much. I would like to share some experiences I had with you. The first one is kind of "basic". The other is a little bit more interesting, at least for me.

Well yes, I lost my watch, and I did exactly as you instruct in your web site. I found it below my computer keyboard several days later. I use my computer around 10 hours a day. I never do put my watch at that place, and I live alone!

The more interesting one is kind of scary. About the time you put out last month's ezine, I was reading through the realityshifters.com, looking into the depths I haven't reached before. I ended up at the page you post the results of the survey. I read through the questions and was intrigued by the question "have you ever seen animal, people or things disappear and reappear". Well, somehow I was stuck at this question. Sometime later I got up and called my cat, Sushi. She was nowhere to be found. Living in the big city I don't let her out usually. I looked everywhere she may hide. Considering she might have slipped out while I was taking a delivery or something, I went out and looked everywhere. I know how good a cat be in hiding, but I literally looked in every hole in the house, whether it seemed possible or not possible for her to get in. Yet, she wasn't around. I was pretty sure she ran away. Not being able get the survey question out of my head, I sat, earthed myself, wished for a reality shift, and released my wish for finding her. I said to myself "If she really wanted to go, there must be reason. Good for her if she did". I got back to work, and after some time she appeared just behind me from nowhere, yawning and stretching, as if she was sleeping on the couch the whole time!!! I still don't know where she might have been, but the timing was extremely weird!

Montpelier estate, Virginia

I was selling jewelry at a wine festival two weekends ago at the Montpelier estate, near Orange, Virginia, east of Charlottesville. A lady came by to try on a small pair of malachite earrings. We found that she needed a larger, plastic back to hold the earring in the proper place on her ear. I turned to get the earring backs from my briefcase, and when I again turned to be in front of her, she said she could not find the second earring. Her husband was standing beside her and said that he saw it on a white card. We looked all around where the earring should have been, looked on the ground in the grass at her feet, looked in her purse, but no earring. Then I told them that it was a Reality Shift, and that the earring would show up. I produced a duplicate, she bought the pair, said she would come back, but didn't return. Interestingly enough the woman mentioned that this had happened to her regarding "papers on her desk", and was glad to know what to call it! You guessed it, I was telling my husband about the incident, looked down on the table where the earring should have been before, and there it was. No, we did not have too much wine at the time! I only wished that the lady had returned, because she needed to see this!

I was really impressed by your website and it's key topic, realityshifting! We share similiar interests, right down to Quantum Physics and David Bohm.

I've noticed time standing still and objects appearing to move. I was attuned to Reiki back in 1998, and along with that gift came the ability to see "prana", better know in physics terms as "molecular movement". I see specks around me when I relax. You might see it, too. When I do Reiki, especially on my head, the specks move much faster. It's a bit like micro-waving oneself and the surroundings. Out of this has come the ability to play "stupid people tricks," such as watching things disappear.

Garden hoses are great for this. Yellow hoses throw purple auras and green ones throw a reddish tone. I practice looking at something close to the hose, like several inches or a foot near it, keeping the vague image of another part of the hose in my outer view. After a while the part of the hose in the corner of my eye starts to get holographic, fat, fuzzy and one can see thru it, then it disappears. If I look directly at the disappearing part it comes back instantly. Same with auras, one cannot look directly. Do you play any of these games? I made my hand disappear. Pressed it up against a wall and looked to one side of it and watched as it got fatter, then flattened out and looked like a hologram. I could see through it, but it was there. A bit more time, and it disappeared.

I was doing Reiki several weeks ago and sat down to do it after I checked the clock. It was after 10 PM. I timed myself to get in a couple of hours daily, in spurts. I turned off the light and did Reiki, and then when I was through, turned on the lights and checked the clock to see when I finished. The clock still said 10 PM, as did all the clocks in the house. I know I did Reiki for about an hour, and I know I started at 10 PM. This stuck in my mind so much that I emailed a couple of friends about it.

I'm so absent minded my purse, keys, etc., could move all over the house and I would think I did it. Unless they moved to a top shelf in the closet!

Omaha, Nebraska

I've had more than a few interesting things happen in my life. I'm sure most other people have too, but they often either turn away and fail to recognize them, or are so frightened that they aren't curious. I'm frightened sometimes too, but mostly I'm curious.

When I was 17, I had a "missing time" episode. I lost the better share of a whole day! I can tell you the day had been perfectly normal up to that point. Then it was just over! When it had just been late morning, suddenly it was late evening. My friends that I was with that day all had the same strange sensation. One of them refused to talk about it, but two of them said that they acted just as if was perfectly normal for the day to be over, when we knew it wasn't. Ten hours of that day just vanished. And very few people mentioned it.

This incident has bothered me for 24 years. It's very strange the way some people reacted to that incident, too. My friends and I were all in a large city park that day. There were people all around us, and yet everyone seemed to accept the end of the day as if it were normal! I did, too, for the most part. The difference in my experience was that I had plans with my family that I was looking forward to that evening. My parents and I didn't get to do what we had wanted to do that evening, and when I asked my mom about it, she put a whole new light on things. She said, "Sometimes things just change." She was very attuned to such things, and swore that there were reality shifts, she just didn't call them that. But sometimes she would say things like "Well, it's different, now". When things weren't where they belonged or when time messed up, she accepted it because "Well, it's different, now". This didn't happen all the time, but it happened in her life quite frequently, or perhaps she was just more attuned to the changes. I must say some of these things still bother me. I'm not quite as accepting as my mother was.

Granted it's easy enough to say that these things didn't really happen, that when I was 17, I just lost track of the time while hanging out with my friends. But I know that is not what happened. Several other people besides me had the same experience that day, and I can't ignore the fact that my family didn't get to do what we'd planned for that evening.

Omaha, Nebraska

For various reasons, I don't believe that reality is stationary. I've had too many incidents that would indicate that not just my reality...but REALITY as a whole has changed. I once came across a town in Colorado that didn't exist. I was southwest of Denver on Hwy 285 (an area I've been very familiar with my whole life) when on one occasion my then-husband, myself, and my two daughters came upon a town that didn't belong there. But there it was.

I was astonished to see an entire functioning town that I had never seen before, with people, houses, and cars. I saw no school, but there was a post office. We noticed a couple of interesting shops, so we stopped and walked around. We had ice cream, and sat wondering where on Earth we were. I don't recall the name of the town now, but at the time I went so far as to write it down. Later, when I checked on a better map than the one we had in the car, I confirmed that the town did not exist. And let's not forget that this is a part of the state that I knew like the back of my hand for 20 years prior to this! To say this was interesting is an understatement. Of course on other trips through the area, the town was not there.

It could be said that when we discovered the town that wasn't there, we had taken a wrong turn. This explanation is just not a possibility. I know that often enough things like that can happen, but this was not one of those times.

Two wonderful books are reviewed here this month: SOUL MOMENTS by Phil Cousineau and PSI: What it is and How it Works by Keith Chandler.

Soul Moments

Soul Moments: Marvelous Stories of Synchronicity-Meaningful Coincidences from a Seemingly Random World

by Phil Cousineau

Sate Your Appetite for Synchronicity Stories

Seldom does one book manage to capture the mood and feeling of the hidden energies behind the mysterious synchronicities in our lives as well as Phil Cousineau's scintillating SOUL MOMENTS. From the first opening pages, this book transports the reader to a universe in which any and every synchronous experience is possible, and may well happen to you.

Just as Cousineau noted that synchronous events became much more prevalent in his life as he worked on SOUL MOMENTS, so too will the reader find these wondrous experiences begin to grace this otherwise hum-drum, workaday world. Suddenly we discover there is magic all around us, and it's for real!

I would love to tell you which synchronicity stories are my favorites from this beautiful collection -- but in truth, I find them all to be sparkling in clarity and bright with inspiration. After reading the moving accounts shared by observant individuals from all walks of life (including Larry Dossey and Huston Smith), even the smallest things no longer seem insignificant.

Treat yourself to a deeper view of the world that grows on you with each passing story, and get yourself a copy of SOUL MOMENTS. This is a book you'll treasure for years to come.


PSI: What It Is & How It Works
by Keith Chandler
A Masterpiece of Clear Thinking

For those of us who know that extra-sensory perceptions (or cognitions) and other forms of "psi" are real, the obvious next step in our quest for deeper understanding of metaphysics is to find workable models. Keith Chandler's book PSI is a tour de force of insight into the inner workings of phenomena such as telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, and psychokinesis as it presents a thoughtful and inspired model of reality that includes these "psi" phenomena.

Chandler presents the notion that remembering within the field of Cosmic Mind could well be the key to learning how it is possible for people to know what's going on in locations geographically far away, or off in the distant future. While Chandler admits to limited experience with some of the phenomena he includes in PSI (such as future memory), he nonetheless maintains an open mind and a keen eye to correlating personal and anecdotal experiences with viable scientific theories and experimental results.

Written in the style of an erudite professor and packed with eye-opening references to current scientific research (from REM sleep to the honeybee's "wiggle dance" and remote viewing), PSI takes the reader to a place of epiphany where for at least one shining moment -- it all makes sense. I highly recommend this book to anyone who genuinely wishes to consider new models of reality that include "psi" phenomena.
