"If we are not responsible for the
thoughts that pass our doors, we are at least responsible for those we
admit and entertain." - Charles B. Newcomb
Learning to master our fears and develop a good relationship with the
unknown is essential to living life to the fullest. One of the greatest
things I ever did for my self confidence was graduating from UC Berkeley's
physics department. I discovered when I began classes at age eighteen at UC
Berkeley that I was one of very few women students in the physics
department, and typically the only female in any given class. I was
painfully shy, and frequently got knots of nervous tension in my stomach
from the combined stress of living away from home for the first time,
taking classes on a faster-paced quarter system for the first time, and
being keenly aware of being an extreme minority. In order to succeed in
this environment, I had to face and conquer many fears.
Cynthia November 1981
My first report card at UC Berkeley hit me with a feeling very much like a
physical blow when I saw instead of getting most all A's as I'd received
all through high school, I was getting C's. I thought to myself that my
first report card from UC Berkeley confirmed my worst fears. These fears
had to do with my thinking that the only students who could make it through
UC Berkeley's rigorous physics program were the ones I saw in the majority
in LeConte Hall... young Asian males. I broke down in tears at the thought
of failing in my physics program, and wondered how I could ever tell my
parents what had happened. Failure in my eyes at that time was more to do
with not getting As than it was the concept of being kicked out by the
university. In the midst of my dark mood at that point, my roommate Kathryn
bounced joyfully over to ask me, "Did you pass?" I wiped my tears away with
my hands, stunned by her question. "Yes, I passed," I replied. Kathryn
whooped for joy, and said, "Let's celebrate!"
I still had tight knots in my abdomen facing the rigors of getting a grip
on the quarter system, living away from home, and being one a handful of
women in my program. The greatest epiphany for me at that juncture in my
life was the simple realization that my own thoughts and attitudes made the
biggest difference in my success in life. Yes, I had passed my classes...
and while my first reaction to seeing my report card was to grieve, wasn't
it a whole lot healthier to celebrate the fact that I was not at risk for
This turning point in my life taught me that by mastering my inner dialogue
of thoughts and attitude, I can face anything. Not only can I overcome my
fears, but I can improve my relationship with whatever or whoever I have
been afraid of. Even though I was still painfully shy, I found ways to
enjoy being the only girl in most of my UC Berkeley Physics classes. I
found ways to see myself as succeeding at meeting my goals by tackling
areas I had difficulty with in small steps... and I succeeded.
And speaking of fears, the year 2012 brings curiosity and a touch of fear
to all our minds. Unlike the Y2K fear, 2012 has been foretold in prophecy
for thousands of years. People wonder what it means, who will be affected,
whether 2012 is the end, and what will happen to us. I found some
fascinating answers to these questions in
2012: Creating Your Own
Shift, a tremendously important book at a time when the world
seems to have gone crazy! This book is a strikingly powerful epiphany and a
practical handbook, all in one. If you wonder what's going to happen on
December 21, 2012, this book is a must read! It will enable you to explore
the deeper nature within and guide you to answers about the outer world.
2012: Creating Your Own Shift summarizes the best insights that
thirty-seven of the world’s most authoritative sources have to
offer, providing readers with a vast cross-section of titillating
information and perspectives on the 2012 transition. One thing on which all
the authors of this amazing work agree is that 2012 will mark an initiation
into a completely new consciousness and a divinely ordained new beginning
for our world.

"I'm really amazed how powerful and beautiful the reading was. Touched
and impressed and it feels as if it lifts me up and let me experience a
whole new dimension of 'me', of 'love'! Thank you so much for helping me
towards this level of consciousness! I keep it a little bit short because I
really have to / want to stay in this momentum, this feeling of peace and
love... although you represent this energy as well! I feel so much love
around me, as if the reading made / makes me more connected and aware of
the importance to be thankful that the spirits guide me, protect me and let
me grow both spiritually and as a human being! Thank you soooo much!" --

Teleseminar -- Is Consciousness Energy?
6 April 2011 at 5 pm Pacific, 6 pm Mountain, 7 pm Central, 8 pm EST
This one hour teleseminar looks really interesting -- this is a live
(free!) teleseminar happening April 6th
with Dr. Dean Radin and Christian de Quincy. What is consciousness? It's an
age-old question that still stretches the limits
of science. Is consciousness a form of energy? Christian de Quincey has
dedicated a career to exploring this puzzle — philosophy's
science's "final frontier," and spirituality's "deepest mystery." Using the
Gifts of Knowing, he guides us into this perennial mystery. Join Dr. de
to explore different theories of consciousness, how mind and body are
and how consciousness can make things happen in the physical world. http://www.noetic.org/events/2011/4/is-consciousness-energy/

I’ve read the many accounts of “lost and
found” items at the Reality Shifters website with great
interest, the whole time thinking what an awesome—albeit
surprising—ending to the writer’s dilemma.
Never did I think I would experience a reality shift. Yesterday
proved me wrong!
It’s only a small half inch by one inch spot on the first
knuckle of the pointer finger on my right hand. But when the
psoriasis flares, it can be wretched. I have a large tube of
medicine for flare ups that I keep in the medicine cabinet at home.
But a week ago it flared so majorly that I packed the tube with me to the
school where I teach. I resorted to the “magic
tube” repeatedly that first day. And packed it in my
purse to take home at the end of the school day. I thought.
However. When I got home, I could not find it in my school bag, or
my small leather purse. With the finger itching like mad, I checked
the bathroom, my school bag, the car and purse—repeatedly.
I emptied out the little purse, but there NO WAY that big white tube of
medicine was hiding anywhere in its tiny black interior.
Nevertheless, I even felt around with my fingers, to no avail.
At school the next day I ransacked my desk for the tube, itchy finger never
letting me forget how much I still needed it! Nada. Over
the course of the last few days I’ve continued searching
everywhere I’ve already looked myriad times before, even
enlisting the help of my teacher aides; again, no tube.
Yesterday I decided I would just have to bite the bullet and buy a new
prescription. As I packed up materials to leave my classroom for
the day, I opened my little purse to drop keys in. And there, on
top of my to-do list for the evening, WAS THE MISSING TUBE OF
Note from Cynthia:I just love this story of your disappearing and
reappearing tube of medicine! How fabulous to get it back in such a
surprising manner, and how marvelous that it arrived before you bought
another tube! I've sometimes noted that missing things come back to me soon
after I accept the fact that I may never see those things again... almost
as if this is an important part of the process ensuring our subsequent
Three of us just arrived at a Florida flea market one morning, where I
bounced into a woman at a crystal shop. This attractive older woman with
blonde/white hair thought I was a youngster about four feet high, and
we both knew and accepted I was once her student, (in another life.
Anyway, to make a long story short, I came back and bought some clear
quartz crystals in silver to hang on a necklace, for Richard and I.
That night, I was going to use a gold chain with my crystal, but instead
decided to ask my mom if I could borrow a silver chain. The reality shift
occurred with my mother. Mom discovered she was missing garnet rose jewelry
from inside a green case which was in her larger jewelry box. She looked
all around and thought it was very strange that it was missing!
Yesterday, we were delightfully surprised to see Mom's garnet rose jewelry
had returned! Mom sat out on the lawn chair in the Florida room
with me while I typed messages and sent out emails. She was very delighted
to have the three pieces of gold jewelery back even though she had to very
delicately untangle the gold chain from knots. While I looked at the
beautifully crafted work in the jewelry, I could see why they were called
the rose set garnets. And we joked saying how we recognised a reality
And for those who can recall, years ago my mother had other jewelry
shifts... including amethysts and diamonds.
It's a beautiful insight to receive awareness of reality shifts happening
to you, and to notice it when it occurs to others!
How good can it get?
Note from Cynthia: What a marvelous reality shift story! I just
love the way you consistently remember to ask the question, "How good can
it get?" as that is truly the best way to ensure you'll be on track for
getting the answer! We learn the most from the questions we ask, and as you
know, "How good can it get?" is my favorite question! Thank you so very
much for sharing this inspirational story, along with such an upbeat and
I've always been able to have visions
of future happenings, but i can't control when i get them. They just come to me. i saw the bad train wreck in India a few
years ago and the passenger liner that landed on top of another one at the
Houston airport. I had a wreck one time and minutes before, I started
seeing, hearing and actually smelling the dust from it and I would feel the
impact. this was like a continuous tape every few seconds it would run over
and over, had I recognized what was happening (a warning) I maybe could
have changed my route and avoided the accident.
This is such an important subject...
Thanks so much for raising it!
I recently had a conversation with a spiritual life coaching client
regarding what to do when disturbing premonitions arrive unbidden
Those of us sensitive enough to receive such intuitive information
are in a unique position to realize that in such moments we are
conscious of our participation in the process of collective consciousness
reality selection. Our immediate emotional and energetic reaction to
observing a particular possible reality counts as a kind of vote, and
our additional response (in the form of prayer, sending love, and / or
visualizing a different outcome) provides us with an opportunity to
bring a more conscious level of participation to what is typically
a more-or-less completely unconscious reality selection process
occurring all the time.
It's important to know that as we become increasingly aware of our
ability to influence non-local events and reality selection for
collective consciousness, we will have times of regret... much as
toddlers learning to walk fall down a few times in the process of
learning to walk. Keeping focused on the desired outcome can be
helpful, which is to realize that humans are now learning to consciously
direct the process of global reality selection, and there is a learning
curve involved. This is a wonderful time to see time we "fall short" and
feel sad by outcomes to also take note of our progress. Intuitive
humans are capable now of being concerned with the collective
energetic consciousness of our home planet, Earth, as well as with
the well-being of species and beings other than ourselves. This is
a truly thrilling and exciting time to be alive and awakening to the
realization that we are much more than the mortal, finite bodies
we temporarily inhabit. Wishing you all the best life and love have to offer,

Author Anita Holmes shares a wealth of stories about a
phenomenon she affectionately calls "Twidders," giving a friendly name to
an often unsettling and disturbing phenomenon of time shifts, slips, and
warps. Holmes brings together groups of stories that share a similar theme,
such as walking back (or less commonly, forward) in time, or seeing people
arrive at a destination before they arrive (again). Some stories present
more questions than they answer, with one person not able to retrace her
footsteps in the snow back to her car, because her car had been
inexplicably relocated to the place she wished she could have parked... but
hadn't. Others have seen a place where trees in the forest alongside the
road sometimes disappear completely in the matter of seconds... to be seen
back again a week later bigger than ever... then months later, gone
My appreciation for these stories stems from having collected thousands of
similar stories over the past decade, as well as personally experiencing a
variety of shifts in space and time. For readers such as myself who've
personally witnessed such phenomena, "Twidders" provides validation and an
enthralling overview of the amazing variety of extraordinary experiences
people can... and have... experienced. There is great value in knowing that
it's possible for people to do extraordinary things, such as to travel
great distances in very little time, travel in time, and sometimes notice
loops in time, seeing events repeat. In addition to stories about time
shifts, "Twidders" includes a great many stories about doppelgangers,
bilocation, vanishing people, and alternate realities.
Some of my personal favorite stories in "Twidders" involve brushes with
dinosaurs on land in the air, leaving witnesses wondering how such
creatures could possibly be here on Earth in these modern times. I also
find the story of a Spanish soldier's overnight teleportation in 1593 from
the Philippines to Mexico particularly captivating.
I highly recommend "Twidders" to everyone intrigued by metaphysics, strange
phenomena, and the paranormal.
2012: Creating Your Own Shift

Swami Beyondananda), Delores Cannon, Mike Quinsey, Tracy Latz, Marion Ross,
Martine Vallee, Adele Ryan McDowell, Cynthia Sue Larson, et al Positively Envisioning 2012 and Beyond
This revelatory anthology brings together the collective
wisdom of 37 authors focused on helping humanity prepare for transitions
anticipated for the year 2012. As Hunt Henion describes in the introduction
to this book, "One thing on which all the authors of this work agree is
that 2012 will mark an initiation into a completely new consciousness and a
divinely new beginning for our world."
Guiding us away from doom-and-gloom and toward imagining positive
transitions are world-renowned visionaries including: Drunvalo Melchizedek,
Steve Bhaerman (aka Swami Beyondananda), Delores Cannon, Mike Quinsey,
Tracy Latz, Marion Ross, and Martine Vallee. Adele Ryan McDowell keeps us
laughing as she reminds us that keeping a sense of humor is a must, and Dr.
C. Normal Shealy inspires us with his vision of the future of health care.
Many chapters include insights gleaned from channeled information by Anrita
MelchizedekSuzanne Lie, Suzanne Ward, Mike Quinsey, and Rhonda Smith.
What I love most about 2012: Creating Your Own Shift is its proactive
perspective regarding prophecies of what some refer to as "end times," that
there a new beginning is unfolding as many things come to an end. 2012 is
highly recommended for anyone seeking inspiration, clarity and balance in
these tumultuous, complex times.
