Seeing Loved Ones Before They Arrive

"Love is like magic And it always will be
For love still remains Life's sweet mystery
Love works in ways That are wondrous and strange
And there's nothing in life That love cannot change"
- Helen Steiner Rice

Thanks to RealityShifters reader, Kate, of Handwriting That Works, I recently heard of the Vardøgr (vard-deh-AY-grr), which is a Norwegian word meaning "premonitory sound or sight of a person before he arrives." A similar concept is known in Finland as Etiäinen, meaning a precognitive vision or dream. These words are used to describe experiences when one sees or hears a family member or guest before the person in question actually arrives. The July 2010 and August 2010 issues of RealityShifters featured several accounts of this particular type of reality shift including one in which I saw my front door open and heard my daughters voice about thirty or forty minutes before she actually appeared. I now wonder how many of the reality shift experiences I have had over the years might fall under this general heading as well, such as these two examples shared in my book, RealityShifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World:
    * My daughters saw me enter their bedroom and turn on their light, waking them up (Reality Shifts: pp. 114-115)
    * A woman requested a business card twice (Reality Shifts: pp. 138-139, 142)
The Vardøgr or Etiäinen concept also gets me thinking about a couple of experiences involving bilocation and time loops that I have mentioned previoiusly in RealityShifters:
I am especially intrigued by situations where people reported having seen me bilocating, since the people reporting having seen me were people who knew me well, and in both bilocation instances I was in a meditative, relaxed state of mind as I was thinking about being elsewhere. My daughters were awakened by my double’s entrance to their room as I said "Good mroning," and turned on their light switch, filling their room with light. They were surprised to run to my room and find me "still in bed," when in my own experience that morning, I had never out of bed... only contemplated it. The woman who told me that she had seen me walking down Solano Avenue was excited to tell me about this, because she knew I was scheduled to be attending a full-day holistic expo in a different city that day, so she was therefore quite surprised to see me enjoying a stroll down the street. Strolling down that street is exactly what I was daydreaming about at that point in time, as I was sitting indoors many miles away!

Another experience I once had while on a bike ride with my daughter comes to mind as being similar to the Vardøgr, even though it involved trees instead of people. My oldest daughter had asked me to join her on an expedition to ride our bicycles out along a mountain road to visit a couple of trees she had seen and loved from a distance of several miles, viewed from one mountain ridge to another. I noticed as we arrived at a place that seemed close to our goal that this idea would be challenging, as a forest of trees lay between the road we traveled on and my daughters favorite trees. Surprisingly, as I rode my bicycle while turning my head to see if I could catch even a glimpse of my daughter's favorite trees, I suddenly saw a completely unobscured view of those two trees appear before me just as clearly as everything else I was looking at. This vision of the two trees appeared in a particular place on the horizon, replacing the forest that was actually there... and lasting for almost a full minute. As the vision faded from view, I was so stunned by this vision that I excitedly told my daughter, "I know which way to go to find your trees!" We followed the direction of my vision, and found this guidance to be completely accurate. The two trees were indeed located exactly where I had just "seen" them to be.

In all these experiences I feel inspired by the idea that we are capable of traveling to where we wish to be in such a way that others observe us there... and sometimes when we daydream, we might just get home (or somewhere else wonderful) a little bit ahead of ourselves!

This month's specially featured RealityShifters item:

Reality Shifts
Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World
Reality Shifts book now available in ebook & print versions!

Read the most comprehensive book ever written on the subject of reality shifts that describes what reality shifts are, why they occur, and how they can be used to influence and change your life for the better. Discover how to make the most of reality shifts in your life, how to live lucidly in a shifting reality, how to shift reality for healing, and delve into the quantum physics of what's going on when reality shifts. Read the first twenty pages of Reality Shifts here.

"Modern science has now addressed the problem of consciousness. We each experience consciousness every day, in some of the myriad and fascinating ways described in REALITY SHIFTS. But no one yet quite understands why this is so. Speculations, theories and experiments from quantum science have now been entered into the debate which suggest that our world is far more mystical, complex, interactive and even humorous than the sterile, mechanistic dogma of classical scientific thought. Read, enjoy, be amazed, ponder REALITY SHIFTS"
-- Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D., Founder, Institute of Noetic Sciences & Apollo Astronaut

"In REALITY SHIFTS, Cynthia Larson helps restore a sense of majesty and wonder to our everyday world. If you think science has explained away the magic of existence, you need seriously to read this book."
--Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Reinventing Medicine, Healing Words, and many other books

"Ever wondered where that missing sock went when you last searched the clothes dryer? Thought about why those keys you so carefully tucked into your jacket pocket suddenly disappeared only to be found underneath the cushion of your favorite television sofa? If so then you have experienced what Cynthia Larson calls a Reality Shift. In her book of that title subtitled When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, she explains in clear and unambiguous language just what these reality shifts are, why they occur, and how they can be used to influence and change your life for the better. Larson even goes into how the latest ideas from quantum physics can help us understand these shifts and most importantly believe in them as part of our reality, not just our imagination. No, Martha, you are not going crazy, just witnessing the reality shift around you. I recommend this book for its clarity and for its message of hope. Readers will be encouraged to enjoy reality shifts both literally and in actuality-when they occur-and will be taught how to make them happen more often."
--Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., National Book Award-winning author

Discovering the Virtues of a Wandering Mind
New York Times
by John Tierney
28 June 2010
At long last, the doodling daydreamer is getting some respect. A wandering mind can protect you from immediate perils and keep you on course toward long-term goals. "It’s daunting to think that we’re slipping in and out so frequently and we never notice that we were gone," Dr. Jonathan Schooler of UC Santa Barbara says. "We have this intuition that the one thing we should know is what’s going on in our minds: I think, therefore I am. It’s the last bastion of what we know, and yet we don’t even know that so well."

Bridging Heaven & Earth
Listening to Future Selves, Reviewing Our Pasts
Presented at the 12th Annual International Language of Spirit Conference
Cynthia Sue Larson invites us to imagine how it feels to be influenced by the future, guided by our future selves... and how it feels when viewing past events through various lenses of perception. The concept of bi-causality, in which we influence both future and past events is considered from an experiential point of view.

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Mom Heard Dad Come Home
Kingston, Ontario, Canada

I remember something that happened to my mother back in Nov. 1984, I remember the year and month because I was pregnant on my oldest son and had just moved in with my parents.

My mother was in the bath tub, I was sitting out in the living room. Everything in the house was very quiet. Next thing I know, my mom is out standing in the middle of the living room in her robe looking around. Then she went back down the hallway. She came out a minute later and asked me "Where is her?" Where was who? No one had come in, gone out, I was reading, it was completely quiet, almost eeriely so. When she was taking her bath, she thought she had heard the door open, my dad come in, and say "hey you". She said it was so real, that she knew it happened, and was shocked and disappointed that it hadn't. She spent the rest of the evening in a strange mood. By the way, at this time, my father worked with the Department of Fisherries and was away from home for a couple of months. When she talked to him about it later, he would have been sleeping during that time frame, and he did have a few vivid dreams of home.

Note from Cynthia: I love this story so much... and lately, it seems there are a lot of these stories about people coming home who didn't really come home being recalled and discussed. I like the way there is a possible explanation here... that your dad would have been sleeping (dreaming) at the same time your mother heard him!

Husbands Heard Coming Home
Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

When my grandfather died, my Mom reported that she and several friends were at home, expecting their husbands to return. It was the evening of my grandfather's funeral back in 1964. I was only four years old at the time, tucked snugly in my bed. And two distinct things happened that night. This was the sixties, so that old social division of "the women" and "the men" still shaped people's lives. So while "the men" finished with some unstated business at the funeral home, all of "the women" came back to my Mom's house to prepare some refreshments and then sit and talk while waiting for their husbands to arrive.

Around 9pm, everyone heard the sound of stamping feet in the back porch. Unmistakably the sound of someone knocking the snow off of their boots. Someone said, "Ah, there are the men now", and the women went out to the kitchen to greet them. But there was no one there. No snow on the floor in the back porch. The door did not appear to have been opened, and the snow outside had been falling steadily since the women arrived, hours earlier, and there was not the faintest trace of a footprint in the crisp new snow. The men arrived home some time after that, to the relief of some very creeped-out wives, except my Mom, of course. She was used to weird stuff. *smile*

The other thing that happened was more subtle. Because mom had expected a large crowd that evening, she made sure that my bedroom door and my brother's bedroom door were both completely closed. But when she came upstairs to check on us late that night, she found both our doors wide open. Apparently my grandfather was noted for always leaving doors open wherever he went. Did he come home to 'say goodbye'? He had died a very sudden death. Pity I can't remember him...

Note from Cynthia: I just love the way that your doors were found to be open when your grandmother came up to check on you and your brother... after she'd closed them earlier, expecting company! Thanks for sharing this story. I get such a powerful feeling of love from reading it, with a sense that people continue on in spirit long after their bodies pass away. Love is forever.

Husband Disappears & Reappears in Lounge Chair
Aynne aka CAT

My husband and I just got back from a cruise with Royal Caribbean, aboard Monarch of the Seas. The neat thing was, one day we were up on one of the top decks, lounging by the railings, somewhere between Cocoa Cay and Nassau in the Bahamas. I would glance over and notice that my husband would not be there. I'd glance again, and he would be there. This happened a couple of times! He saw me staring at him and asked me what I was doing. I said "Watching you appear and disappear off that lounge chair!"

He said he wasn't dozing, but staring at the ocean. I asked if he noticed anything, like someone or something being there, then not being there, then being there again? He said no, he didn't see that. He had just been staring at the ocean. He felt it was him that was flickering in and out, but couldn't really tell me why.

Note from Cynthia: The two times that people who know me well have reported I've been bilocating have noticed that I've appeared somewhere I was daydreaming about... and I've sometimes wondered whether I might have been flickering in and out of one  location while appearing in the other. I'm so glad you asked your husband whether he thought it was you or him that was disappearing and reappearing, and intrigued that he responded the way I'd expect him to... that since he was the one doing the daydreaming, he's the one who also would guess it was him disappearing and reappearing!


(5) Reality Shifting Q and A / Mail Bag

Dear Cynthia,
I found your Website by a chance perhaps I should say, I was guided by a "Good Energy/Spirit." Last night, we celebrated one of our friends birthday; while everyone is having a good time, I couldn't stop feeling uneasy until somebody mentioned about the movie "2012," which I felt had control over the subject, so I started explaining them about my experiences and told them that, even if they don't believe it, they need to be prepared. After the party, I went home feeling bad because I thought that my story and piece of advice were not believable. And strangely this morning, I woke up with the idea of sending to my friends the link to "Remote Viewing" Web site, and that is how I discovered your Web site.

I learn about "Remote Viewing" from a dream that I wanted to analyze. And since this discovery, I feel like I cannot ignore my dreams anymore. I wanted to get a formal study on Remote Viewing but I cannot afford it, really.

I heard of 2012 few years back but I did not pay much attention about it. After seeing the movie "2012," I started to think back and recall the dreams that I thought convey "warnings." In the movie (2012) it said on the screen, (I need to see this movie again because I am not sure if I got it right) "finally, they took ashore, on month 1, day 27, and year 0. When I saw this, I was mesmerize, because number 27 is the number that I dreamed twice, just a flash, back in 2007. And since then, I keep seeing this number. I tried to ignore it but I can't help it. And as one example, many times occurred when I checked the time-in my car or bathroom clocks, or from digital clocks somewhere when I am out of my house.

The scary part is that, I dreamed of tidal waves three different times-twice in 2009 and just one this past January 2010 if my memory recalls, I believe a week or two (2) after the Haiti earthquake. But since 2001, before the 9/11, I have dreamed of many weird events, liker people in panic and chaos, fire trucks, tall buildings, etc., and even food rationing -- this one I thought had something to do with our economy. And two days before the 9/11, I woke from a dream of airplanes fly by. I couldn't forget this one. I thought it was related to ourr visit to France the following weekend -- obviously not.

  I believe most of our dreams are real and only apply to the dreamers, and they have to decipher.  But I also believe that we can connect to our friends and families, surrounding, the vibration of the Earth, etc. through dreams, but again we have to decode them to understand.  And most dreams are warnings or dangers.  I believe dreams are realized, no matter how you avoid them; and they happen within our next waking time — and if not, they become “déjà vu’s.”   My questions to you are, when you conducted the seminar with remote viewers, I assumed they have the skills to do remote viewing, “What kind of Universal Codes appeared in their subconscious?”  And if they were put in meditative state, “What kind of dreams appeared in their subconscious?

Thank you and I am looking forward to your reply.

Dearest Danny,
Thanks so much for your questions about remote viewing 2012. I share your belief in dreams being real... or more specifically, I believe that dreams allow us to experience and co-create (when we are lucid dreaming) a deeper level of possible reality by which the reality we call "real" is created. Dreaming allows us the ability to explore a variety of possible realities, and lucid dreaming provides us with the means to shift reality, helping to steer this spaceship Earth and select the best possible reality for all concerned. 

The remote viewers I was working with and mention in the Remote Viewing 2012 Realityshifters had a range of previous experience with remote viewing, and were in a meditative state. The experienced remote viewers observed some common symbols including: the color white, beautiful gardens, beautiful feeling energy, houses situated by large bodies of water.

I highly recommend a book which will be published soon, edited by Examiner columnist Hunt Henion, called 2012, Creating Your Own Shift will feature an article by me on the topic of When Consciousness Changes the Physical World.

lots of love,


(6) Reality Shifters Award Winner

I am proud to announce this month's winner of the Reality Shifting Award, for recognition of demonstrating consistent excellence in web site content and design, while helping people shift their reality in a positive direction:

Lynne Forrest & The Three Faces of Victim
One of the most helpful tools I have worked with over the past thirty years since I first saw it is called Transactional Analysis... and one of the most useful applications of this model of human interaction is superbly described by Lynne Forrest on her web site designed to assist people in recognizing and learning to release the hold of "the drama triangle" or "the victim triangle." If you are tired of re-enacting painful life themes again and again, read this overview of the Drama Triangle... and the world will never look the same!

Deep Brain Learning

Deep Brain Learning:
Pathways to Potential with Challenging Youth

by Larry K. Brendtro, Martin L. Mitchell, & Herman J. McCall
Helping Troubled Teens Move from Trauma to Trust

Deep Brain Learning provides readers with a profound sense of hope for better ways to support, educate, inspire and positively transform troubled youth. A generation gap exists that leaves many American adults wondering, "What's wrong with today's kids?" and most American children wondering, "Where have all the elders gone?" Deep Brain Learning challenges us to create the culture of respect necessary for young people... and our entire culture... to thrive. Without pointing fingers of blame or seeking scapegoats, Deep Brain Learning describes the existing problem in American society that leaves youth learning from one another and various media sources, rather than from real-world interactions with elders who grant them ever increasing degrees of respect and responsibility. When inevitable stresses and demands are made of these youth, they often have not had caregivers nearby at challenging times to model a calm process for dealing with such stressful situations of starting with a logical assessment, incorporating emotional wisdom, and taking appropriate action. Deep Brain Learning summarizes a variety of models that are useful for better understanding the brain and practical aspects of social and interpersonal psychology in what feels at times like a giant map and rules for the road (in the form of principles for transformation), with occasional real-life reports from some intrepid explorers who've traversed the challenging terrains from Trauma to Trust. Detailed references are provided for those who wish to delve in more detail into particular areas, so this is both a powerful reference book and a relatively fast and easy read. I highly recommend Deep Brain Learning to all parents, teachers, and adults dealing with children and young people. While the ideas presented are ostensibly focused on "challenging youth," it seems clear that a majority of today's youth are feeling the stresses of living in a culture in which few, if any, adults model requisite respect, empathy, deep communication, social intelligence and emotional resilience. Deep Brain Learning provides a marvelous road map for making a journey out of blaming, assuming the worst, violence, and hypersensitivity to insult to development of self control, clear thinking, empathy, a sense of mastery, belonging, responsibility, generosity and independence.
