Reality Shifts
This time shift / time slip story and the hundreds of other first-hand accounts of reality shifts (aka: mind-matter interaction MMI, quantum jumping, glitches in the Matrix) on this site have been collected and shared through Cynthia Sue Larson's RealityShifters since 1999. Special issues focusing on particular types of reality shifts (such as: the Dead seen Alive Again, Seeing Loved Ones Before They Arrive, Invisibility, Walking through Walls, etc.) can be found by browsing through the RealityShifters archives and subscribing to the (free) monthly ezine. The reality shift phenomenon is documented in the best-selling book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World.

Time Travel Reality Shift
by Cynthia Sue Larson

Westerners often assume that time proceeds in a linear, regular fashion. This concept was beautifully expressed in the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam:

    "The moving finger writes; and, having writ, moves on:
    nor all thy piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel half a line,
    nor all thy tears wash out a word of it."

We tend to see the world according to our own inner belief constructs -- our mental models and symbols that we use to categorize our experiences and place our memories. In our mechanized world, we often view experiences in terms of mechanical things, and begin to use mechanical terms like "download" and "interfacing" to describe our human interactions.

Could it be that we are lulling ourselves into a false sense of time's mechanical, linear progression... and that time actually is much more alive, wild, and unpredictable than we'd ever imagined?

On one seemingly ordinary day in August 1998, my daughter saw a friend of ours drive up in his car. She saw him pull into the driveway, pause for a moment, then pull back out and drive down the street. She first yelled out his name to me, yelling that he was here, which I plainly heard. A few minutes passed, and then I heard her yelling after him,

    "WAIT! Why are you going?!"

My daughter later told me he said something to her that she couldn't quite hear, and then drove away. From where I was inside the house, I could hear a car pull into the driveway, and then drive away a few minutes later.

About ten minutes later, our friend returned in a completely different car, with his two children.

Now that our friend had arrived at our house (this time with his children) and appeared able to stay for a while, my daughter came to talk to me. I could see that she was deeply troubled by something, so I asked her what was wrong. She asked me

    "Why did he drive away?"

I replied that I had no idea... perhaps there had been some problem with his children, and had decided to go talk with them privately. My daughter instantly commented

    "But the kids weren't even in the car the first time...
    and it was a different car."

I brought my daughter to talk to my friend about this, and he was quite intrigued. He told us,

    "I once drove here by myself in the other car. I had been wishing to see you and wishing I could be here when you were here... especially your daughter, and her implacable, unbeatable, ungovernable love. She goes right to my heart."

My daughter told our friend that he had said something to her that she couldn't quite understand, and that he was talking directly to her, as if he could see her, but he drove away anyway. Our friend told us that he had sensed someone's presence as he was thinking of my daughter, and had spoken aloud his wish to see us when we were home. My daughter said that she didn't quite know what our friend had said, but that he was obviously talking directly to her.

I felt extremely fortunate to have witnessed another kind of reality shift... a time travel variety of reality shift, in which our friend had somehow successfully held a conversation from the past into the future with my daughter, and that they had both sensed one another's presence.

My daughter was much more clearly able to see our friend, whereas he merely sensed my daughter's presence -- I mused that perhaps this might be because my daughter's beginner's mind better allowed her to see what adults would tend to assume could not be happening. Due to our friend's desire to be here and our desire to see him, he actually arrived from the past into our present (his future), and for a brief time they held a conversation together.
