Neo:Whoa, deja vu. Trinity: What did you just say? Neo: Nothing, I just had a little deja vu. Trinity: What did you see? Cypher: What happened? Neo: A black cat went past us, and then another that looked just
like it. Trinity: How much like it, was it the same cat? Neo: Might have been, I'm not sure. Morpheus: Switch, Apoc. Neo: What is it? Trinity: Deja vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix. It happens
when they change something.

Reality Repeats... a Time Loop Story
Stockton, New Jersey
I had an amazing experience about two years ago in Easton, Pennsylvania. My
friend and I had stopped at a traffic light next to a bike store while
taking a road trip, when I saw the strangest thing. A young man came out of
the bike shop wearing brightly colored clothing, and got into his car.
As we sat at the light, I turned my head to chat with my companion. A
moment later, I turned around, and THE EXACT SAME SCENE played itself out.
The SAME young man, dressed the same way, came out of the store and got
into his car in exactly the same way!
Not enough time had elapsed between these moments for the man in question
to have been able to get back out of the car, return to the store, and then
come back out of the store. The passage of time between these moments (of
me seeing him come out of the store once, then again) was not more than a
This is just one experience I've had where I seem to have seen a "glitch"
in the Matrix! My own "action replay," or perhaps a reality shift, or
perhaps stepping out of time. What's interesting is that it happened when I
wasn't in a particularly meditational state of mind, just hanging out,
listening to music on our road trip.
A New Door Appears
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
I've been reading the stories about peoples' reality shifts on your web
site for some time now, but have never had a reality shift of my own,
beyond instances of synchronicity, which happen to me often. But I think
I've finally got one. I've worked in the same building for five years now.
For virtually every weekday of those five years, at least once a day, I've
made a trip down the hall to use the ladies' room. As I walk down the hall,
at the far end, I've simply seen wall space, with a door (which is usually
closed) on a small section of the wall that comes out at a right angle from
the wall I face as I walk down the hall.
On one particular Thursday this year, I noticed another door facing me
while I walked down the very same hall. I was so startled that I actually
stopped in my tracks. I have never noticed this door before. Not once in
five years! Now I admit to the occasional brain fog, but five years worth?!
As I reached that wall, where the hall takes a 90 degree turn to the left,
I looked closely at the wall and door frame to see if it looked as if it
had just been put in overnight. But no, it looks like it's been there for
some time. The door frame even has dents, scuffs, and nicks in it.
I asked some of my coworkers about the door, and they seemed very surprised
and amused that I had apparently not seen this door before. But come on...
not once before in five years? That's a bit much, even for me. :) So I
think I have finally experienced a reality shift.
Transported Car in Parking Garage
San Francisco, California
One afternoon about four months ago, a friend and I went to see "Opera
in the Park" in San Francisco. We had parked on the 2nd floor in a
busy parking garage. As always, we each made a mental note of where
we parked. We returned about 4 hours later, and began walking up to
the level we parked in. We both commented on how weird it was that
there were no cars anywhere, and how everything seemed so quiet for a
very busy downtown day. We arrived at the 2nd floor and noticed there
were no cars to be found, including ours. We figured we were in
error, and commented on how odd it was for us both to be wrong about
where we parked. We proceeded up to the 3rd floor, to our amazement,
no cars. We were beginning to feel uncomfortable about this, I said
jokingly, "We are either in the wrong parking garage, or in the
Twilight zone." The 4th floor began to show some cars, but not ours.
Finally the 5th floor, much to our relief was full of cars, including
ours. We felt happy to find the car, but were so baffled by our
experience. We then proceeded to drive down to the exit, then by
sheer horror noticed that every floor level was full of cars! We
were both quite bewildered. I wanted to go back to reevaluate what we
had experienced, but my friend was emphatically against it. Normally,
I would have attributed this experience to a glitch in my brain. The
fact that two of us experienced this brought even more validity to it.
I know for certain that we used the same entrance of the garage, same
elevator section, and used all the same doors. We could also see
around the whole level of whatever floor we were on. It was not
staggered. I will never know what really happened that day. These
are things that make you go, "hummmm".
Falling in Slow Motion
A Reader in California
A few years ago, while doing camera work at a public meeting, I managed to
trip over a piece of equipment which another technician was moving. I felt
myself falling in slow motion, then landing "softly" on the floor.
When I got up, a few people who had not yet left the meeting were staring
at me strangely. I said, "Hey, didnt you already know what a klutz I am?"
and laughed. One man said, "I cant believe it -- you seemed to be falling
in slow motion." A lady said, "Ive never seen anything quite like that." I
said, "I guess things like that do happen sometimes..." and they nodded
I think all of these incidents are relevant, if only to illustrate how just
about anything and everything is possible when it comes to reality
I Didn't Ask for Eggs... but People Say I
I recently went to pick up my raw milk and cream, when something unusual
happened. I was in line, and girl at the table looked at me and went to the
back of the truck and came back and said, "We are out of eggs." I replied,
" I didn't ask for eggs, just my milk and cream." She looked puzzled, as
three people behind me said, "You asked for eggs." I took that as a sign I
needed eggs in my diet.
It was certainly a "head scratcher" most of that day. I rarely eat meat;
only dab of chicken or seafood every so often, so I was probably needing
some protein. As I told my husband Jay, I would have bet money I didn't say
"eggs," but since there were witnesses saying otherwise, I conceded to the
event as described.
Small Maple Tree Appears
In our garden, there was a spot where I SWEAR there was nothing....there
was only pachysandra.. and I am not drinking or on drugs, and haven't
become delusional or senile, but one day when I walked by that spot there
was a small maple tree! I HONEST TO GOD SWEAR THAT TREE WAS NOT THERE,
CYNTHIA! When I asked my mother if she noticed the tree, she said she
hadn't noticed it before. And I asked my sister, but unfortunately, she
didn't remember a tree or not because she has been so busy with her three
boys. Some trees grow fast, but not within a matter of two days! My "inner
skeptic" says "No, that's ridiculous.. I just never noticed the tree
before... I've been busy lately and I just never took the time to see it."
Well, no one in my family has had time to garden lately, and I doubt anyone
in the neighborhood would want to sneak into our yard and plant a tree just
for fun and because they had nothing better to do!" (Even though planting a
tree is ALWAYS a nice thing to do.) And I swear there was no maple tree
The Matrix Applied/Small Flight With Project
This is a summary describing how to do everything you've seen in the
film, The Matrix, in what I call Project Runway.
A few days ago, on a nice sunny Monday, I went with a friend to test a
theory I've had for a while. We went to a local park for a new type of
long-jump. Neither of us had been in track or sports for at least a year.
We set up some sticks in front of a hill for us to jump over. Our
objective was similar to what Morpheus advised Neo in the movie The
Matrix, "Let it all go, Neo. Fear, doubt, disbelief [and love (explained
We started small, jumped it, then made the jump larger. This
went on for 20 minutes before I looked at how far our last successful
jump was. I couldn't comprehend it (and had to quit for the day because I
started thinking about it). From only jogging (if we ran, we only got
we both successfully jumped 16 size 13 feet! (we had no ruler). As in,
take a size 13 shoe, and step 16 times, heel-to-toe. Quite a long way for
jogging, huh? I swear we flew for at least a few feet as well, when we
did it right, because sometime in mid-air, I felt completely joyful, and
closed my eyes. You'll have to try it to find out though...
You try it: Method explained.
My theory involved letting go, as explained above. But first, here's some
history. No "finding lost objects" techniques ever worked for me, not even
my awesome "third eye manifestation". So, soon after I started thinking
of the body as a "shell", I said "shell, find my book." and it did,
instantly. Then my towel, then another book, etc. Later, I remembered
it's just energy linked to the mind. So I consider it a function, not
even a physical thing (this is important in letting go).
Then, sometime after that, I began experimenting more, and learned to
stop thinking. Yes, when you don't think, sparring's easier, and so are
sports. In order to obtain this state, I decided to use the Buddhist
practice of mindfulness. It clears the mind quite well. Remember people
telling you "not to think about it so much"? Well, forget that, just
don't think. Now, one last thing. I said that you'd have to let go of
love as well. I believe this is explained somewhere on
realityshifters.com in the
of Wishes article .
The idea is, you can't hold on to love, so just let it go, and it will
flow naturally. Love is also the energy to live, fly, etc. (YES! You
DON'T need to spend years gathering energy!) What I have learned is
something others have also felt and written about. Reading Communion With
God and Illusions helps a lot in understanding this. Remember to
just let it go, and let it flow. Most importantly (because you have to
stop thinking once you start running) is to trust yourself.
Ready now? Here's how I did it.
1. Set up your sticks/markers. Start out small if you're new.
2. Find a place to start (I started on a small hill).
3. Let go of all fears, doubts, worries, etc.
5. Tell your body to jump the distance.
6. Trust your self, AND your body.
7. Be mindful, and clear your mind.
8. Everything will suddenly just "click", and you'll know it's time to
9. Keep a clear mind, free from negative thoughts, and don't force
anything. The speed of your run does NOT matter. Trust you will fly.
10. Repeat until you want to stop.
Tomorrow or the next day, I'm going out to train again with my
friend. I know I flew, and I'm gonna do more than just jump far.
