How Good Can it Get?
Intend that Today is the Best Day
of Your Life
"Hope is a waking dream."
I lovingly watched my daughter open her birthday card from me early one
morning last week, and was surprised to hear her read my inscription aloud
in a flat, monotone voice, "love and hugs and every best wish for your
best year ever." I asked her why that sentiment bothered her, and she
replied, "That's the same thing you write in my birthday card every
year." She had a point, of course... this is pretty much exactly what I
write in her card every year, as I tend to maintain an onward and upward
view of life. My daughter's comment got me to thinking about the way most
of us assume we have no right to expect our lives to continuously improve
on a path of ever-increasing prosperity, enjoyment and excellence... since
common consensus suggests that we will "win a few, lose a few," and
shouldn't expect things to consistently improve day after day, year after
year. I told my daughter that the reason I keep signing cards with a wish
for her to have the best year ever is that I genuinely desire to see each
new year, month and day of her life being the best it can possibly be. My
hopeful attitude is an invitation to experience the greatest joys that each
day has to offer.
Some people assume that nobody in their right mind can expect each
subsequent day to be happier than the last, since that is seldom a concept
which is presented as being a realistic or logical possibility by our
families, friends, colleagues, teachers and governments. I might have
thought this way as well, had it not been for my personal experiences
feeling happier day after day, year after year. While this might sound
impossible for anyone to achieve, I can assure you it is not. The days that
feel best to me feel happiest to me by the joy that helps me know when all
is right with my world. I am completely thrilled this month to have
discovered a wonderful book,
How We Choose to Be Happy, that describes in detail nine choices that
the happiest people on Earth make, as they find happiness in their lives
even amidst great challenges, hardships and stresses of every kind. I
review this marvelous book in this month's ezine, along with a fascinating
book on the concept of how we plan our life challenges before birth, as we
are all truly Courageous
My life is much more enjoyable when I start each day by welcoming it as my
best day of my life so far -- and when I begin meetings with colleagues and
clients with the intention that this is the best meeting I have had so
far... I keep finding that this is indeed the case. I've found the most
essential ingredient for success to be my own optimism, without need for
all the details to be imagined... because much of my enjoyment in life
comes from the delightful surprises that come my way. As I write in my book
Reality Shifts: When
Consciousness Changes the Physical World, I love to view life as a
waking dream. The essence of hopefulness can be said to be a lucid
expression of choosing to be happy through: intention, being honest,
personal accountability, knowing oneself, being flexible, finding meaning,
focusing on what really matters, feeling gratitude, and expressing
unconditional love. The more we live our lives from a proactive rather than
a reactive mode, the more likely it is that we will experience the sheer
joy of seeing our hopes realized in our lives. Reknowned author and mystic
G.I. Gurdjieff once stated, "Man lives his life in sleep, and in sleep
he dies," suggesting that when we live our lives based on habituated
expectations without realizing the choices we are able to make for
ourselves, we suffer. Aristotle's statement that "Hope is a waking
dream" suggests we have another option... we can become conscious about
how we engage in the ongoing dialogue with the universe -- learning to live
lucidly in ever-shifting realities.
Wishing you all the best that life and love have to offer,

The Connection between a Good Job and Happiness is
by Penelope Trunk
16 January 2007
This blog entry by Boston Globe columnist Penelope Trunk provides an
excellent overview of some recent media coverage of the psychology of
happiness in the New York Times, The Economist, and the TED Conference.
While we often think we can find happiness in the perfect job or the
perfect relationship, researchers are finding that true happiness has a lot
more to do with how we think at our very core -- our basic level of
optimism. The implication is that you do not need to make yourself crazy
with finding the perfect job or lover... your happiness will come from how
you feel and think on the inside.
Reality Shifts and the Guitar Pick
Spiritual Compass Connection
by Margaret Anderson
Maggie Anderson shares one of her amazing personal experiences with reality
shifts in which she felt a communication from a loved one from the grave...
literally from the grave!
Reality Shifting Films
What do movies and TV shows like
Premonition, Deja Vu, The Secret, The Jacket,
What the Bleep
Do We Know, Just Like Heaven, Indigo,
Tru Calling, The
Matrix, Frequency, Wonderfalls, Dark City, Sliders, The Lathe of Heaven,
Sliding Doors and Passion of Mind have in common?
These films feature the reality shift phenomenon in their plots. I find it
especially refreshing to see films that describe reality shifts close to
the way I've experienced them myself, and I am grateful that reality shifts
are being featured more often than ever in film!
(4) Your Reality Shift
Changing Keys / Instant Costume Change
Rev. Philip Smith
Fort Worth, Texas
I like your web site very much; it makes me feel far less nutty than people
probably think I am. I started a thread about reality shifting back in 2001
on another board and was called a pothead. I did not know what to really
call what I was experiencing at that time. The day I posted one particular
reality shift story, I had woken up to find my key chain had turned gray.
My boyfriend and I always had identical key chains (actually they were the
lock devices that came with our Jeep), and they were both black. When one
of us picked up a key ring, we had to look not at the black device but at
the collection of keys, because we had the same house, similar cars and
other things -- so we had to look to make sure that the gold keys to my
office were on the key ring or not in order to determine which set of keys
was which. One day, I woke up after a fairl hard night of half sleeping, to
discover that my key locking device was now gray. My boyfriend never
remembers a time when my key chain wasn't gray, and he insists that a
difference in color is the way we always told our otherwise identical key
chains apart, which makes me think I also do not have the exact same
I first experienced either a reality shift or missing time experience when
I was back in the first grade. I was the master of ceremonies of our school
Christmas play that year. I read Bible verses while the costumed characters
acted out the nativity story. I remember the Holy Virgin wearing her coke
bottle glasses. At the conclusion of the play, I was told that I had to
wait until the remainder of the class had changed after the play was
finished, but if I wanted to I could stay in my suit and tie, which I chose
to do, I watched the other kids walk into separate boy/girl restrooms
carrying their street clothes. I sat down on a stool backstage for what
seemed like one second, when the entire class came from backstage (not the
restrooms, that was in another area) wearing their street clothes. I
remember at the time thinking to myself "That is impossible... how could
they all change their clothes that fast?!?" but I was also of the naive
intelligence to know that adults wouldn't understand what I was talking
about if I were to ask this question aloud. One teacher told me "Thanks for
waiting. Now let's form a line and go back to home room". I have been told
that I was day dreaming and "fell asleep" and woke up at exactly the right
time, but I have done kind of thing before, and this experience was nothing
like that. This was more like a skip on the DVD of time, in which one scene
suddenly became another.
Note from Cynthia: These are truly wonderful reality shift
stories -- thank you so very much for sharing them! I especially love the
way you include such
thought-provoking observations such as, "I also do not have the exact
same boyfriend," and "one scene suddenly became another."

Bicyclist Appears on Bike
There is a very nice man named George who rides the train with me from
Stratford to New Haven to get to work each day. George always brings his
bicycle on the train to New Haven, and then pedals to his job. He does this
ninety nine percent of the time.... sometimes, if it's extremely inclement
weather or he's tired or has back pain, he does not bring the bicycle. On
one recent Monday, Goerge did not come to work because he was still on
vacation. The next day, Tuesday, George rode his bike to the station, and
then did something rather odd that the other folks who chit-chat with
George and I noticed... George PARKED HIS BIKE AND CHAINED IT TO THE BIKE
RACK AT THE STATION. He was apparently having some back or foot pain, and
decided not to take the bike to New Haven, opting instead to just ride the
bus from the train station to work. Again, George chained his bike to the
bike rack at the STRATFORD train station. That Tuesday evening, when I was
walking to the New Haven train station to the get the train back home to
Stratford, George rode his bike past me on his way to the New Haven train
station! I thought to myself, "Now wait a minute... didn't George park his
bike at the Stratford train station this morning? Didn't he decide not to
take it on the morning train?!?" The odds that he has another bike at his
office are extremely slim.
Note from Cynthia: This is such a great story! I love this kind
of story... the kind that makes you say, "Hmm?!" as the more you examine
it, the more goosebumps you get of realization that something very strange
is definitely going on!
Merging Accident Averted
I have had a few experiences with reality shifting. The most recent was on
my Birthday. I had taken the day off to go get a tattoo in the morning,
then later in the afternoon I was taking my kids into downtown so we could
watch a special screening of a movie. At some point during the drive, I was
prompted by a voice within that said, "Ask for protection, Now." I
instinctively recited a few protection prayers to the angelic realm and the
creator that I frequently use when I am traveling.
After saying them quietly under my breath, I looked in the rear view mirror
to check on the kids. When I looked back in front of me, I saw to my horror
that a mini-van similar in size to mine was merging into my lane without
paying attention to what other vehicles where around. I instinctively
slammed on the brakes... only my vehicle did not stop or slow down like it
should have. Instead, the engine shifted. I could feel it shifting in the
weirdest way, slowing way down but not as if the breaks had been slammed.
There was no jerking or forward pitch of motion for any of us. In fact, the
kids never even felt it like they would have and they never even commented
to me for slamming on the brakes and jerking them forward into their seat
belts. The seat belts never tightened, either. It was more like something
had reached out and gently slowed the vehicle we were in while I watched as
the other van drifted over and into the front nose of mine... only there
was no grinding of metal or impact.
The two vehicles just seemed to merge very quickly. Then the van in front
of me speeded up like it had been given a shove forward while my van was
slowed down and held back. Afterwards, when my shock passed, I hit the horn
in a delayed reaction, furious at the other driver and ready to get very
angry over our close call, but the voice inside me calmed me right back
down, saying "There is not need for all that; everything is fine." I felt
at peace then, and let it all wash away.
It was then that another driver pulled up alongside of me. Apparently, she
had witnessed it all and she had the MOST peculiar look on her face, kind
of like, "Did I just really see what I think I just saw?!" I know it was a
shift in reality. I've had other reality shifts before as well.
Note from Cynthia: This story is the kind of story that helps
people understand the awesome
power of experiencing a large-scale reality shift first-hand... witnessing
the miraculous nature of things going incredibly right against all odds.
Thank you so much for sharing this!
(5) Reality Shifting Q&A / Mail
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:
I don't know if this is silly or not, but I wanted to thank you for helping
me find something I'd lost. While panicking and trying to find it, I
thought of googling tips. The result was your Top
Six Tips for Finding Lost Things. I sat down, read through, calmed
myself and started looking again repeating "reality shift" in my head. In
less than two minutes I'd found my flash drive (compared to the hour I
spent searching the entire house). It was in a place I normally don't put
it, so I was shocked and very happy to discover it there. I have bunch of
important stuff on my flash drive, including a novel I've been working on
for months. If I didn't find it, I'd probably go insane wondering where it
vanished to. Thank you so much! You really helped me focus and find
something dear to me.
Thank you so much for writing to me with this delightful news! I'm
so glad to hear that you got some positive inspiration through my online
article, and that you've successfully been reunited with your missing flash
love, love, love,

The 9 Choices of Extremely Happy People -- Their Secrets, Their
by Rick Foster and Greg Hicks
Sharing Nine Secrets to Ensuring a Happy
HOW WE CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY dispels the myth that we have
emotional set points and are stuck with whatever level of satisfaction we
normally feel, in lives primarily influenced by luck of the draw.
Authors Foster and Hicks traveled the world to interview the happiest
people referred to them in each town they visited, discovering that the
happiest people in the world have made nine life choices in common.
Significantly, it became clear that when these nine principles are adopted,
they radically improve peoples' happiness in life regardless of what is
going on around them.
The realizations in HOW WE CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY are so clearly stated with
abundant examples of people who are merely cheerful, or in denial, rather
than genuninely happy that their nine principles become more clearly
The big idea here is that happiness is a choice, or more precisely a series
of choices, and when we choose to move our lives toward happiness by making
changes to ourselves from the inside out, we can experience tremendous
improvements in feelings of increased inner joy, peace and health.
Our health and wellbeing lies in our happiness... and when we realize that
our happiness is a new way of life, this book becomes a much-needed guide
to finding out just how good life can be. I give this book my highest
Do We Plan Our Life Experiences Before Birth?
by Robert Schwartz
An Empowering Way to Reframe Challenges in Our
It has been said that asking oneself the question, "Who was
I before I was born?" can teach us the most about our true spiritual
identity -- yet most of us have not been so fortunate as to have heard the
full reply. COURAGEOUS SOULS takes this starting point one step further by
exploring just how we may have crafted our entire life around all of our
life circumstances -- both the high and the low points -- with intuitive
readings from spiritual and intuitive mediums lighting our way.
What sets Robert Schwartz's book apart from other books about the afterlife
and better understanding our life purpose is his organized use of intuitive
readings as companion pieces to accompany the various life stories he
includes. These intuitive sessions provide a deep sense of
interconnectedness and unconditional love shared in our lifetimes which we
sometimes lose sight of, as well as insights into how we continue life
lessons from one life to the next.
COURAGEOUS SOULS is an exceptional book for anyone interested in exploring
the true nature of their spiritual identity, who is willing to keep an open
mind regarding the value of some of the most painful challenges we humans
face in our lives on Earth; this is highly recommended reading for anyone
seeking to reframe painful challenges, setbacks and hardships in their
