What Are Reality
shift (ree al' i tee shift),
n. 1. the manifestation of objects appearing, disappearing,
transforming and transporting. 2. changes in the way we experience
time. 3. any sudden, abrupt alteration of physical reality with no
apparent physical cause. 4. the source of synchronicity.
Reality shift is a relatively new term to
describe an ancient phenomenon. Shifts in reality have long been relied
upon by those who practice magic, work as shamanic or energy healers, or
believe in the transformative powers of prayer... and are now becoming
known to the general public as a very real phenomenon that affects us all.
"There are two ways to
live your life.
Reality shifts are happening around us all the time,
though we usually don't notice them occurring. By intending to witness
reality shifts and paying even more attention to your physical surroundings
than usual, you will increase your chances of seeing reality shifts occur
right in front of you.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle."
When I first began experiencing numerous reality shifts in 1994, I thought
that my mind was playing tricks on me, and that if I simply paid a bit more
attention to things around me then I'd stop thinking that things were
appearing, disappearing, transforming and transporting around me.
I was amazed to discover that the opposite was true... the more closely I
paid attention to my environment, the more likely I was to see that things
were very often not at all the way I know they had been. For example, a
half-eaten loaf of bread became a whole loaf again as it sat on my kitchen
counter and I slept one night. I have searched the entire house for my
daughter's favorite shoes, only to give up... and a few days later find her
shoes in a place she would never normally put them... on top of her
I've seen truly spectacular reality shifts when I was feeling the most
doubt about them existing. I saw a very old-looking sign appear in the
middle of my daily walking path the day after I'd started writing my first
article about reality shifts and was feeling doubt that this phenomenon
could be real. The sign looked to be at least months and possibly years
old, and the connected garbage can showed signs of the weed-whacking that
had happened there just the day before. I had seen the gardeners working
there in the park... and I had also seen they were working in a clear field
that had no sign and garbage can.
Have you witnessed reality shifts in your life... perhaps
not knowing how to store the memory or how to discuss it with other people?
If you answer "yes" to any of the following questions, you may have
witnessed reality shifts:
* Do you end up with single socks when you
know you put pairs of socks into your load of laundry?
* Have you
found your keys or wallet some place other than where you know you put them
just a few minutes earlier?
* Have you thought of someone or
something and moments later been startled when they appeared unexpectedly?
* Have you noticed time behave in other than a regular, linear
* Do traffic lights turn green and traffic jams
clear up just when you most need them to?
There are a variety of ways that people observe and
describe reality shifts, and while the "vanishing/reappearing item" type of
reality shift is perhaps the most commonly discussed, some other commonly
reported types of reality shifts include: people being noticed to be alive
again who had been dead, injuries and illnesses vanishing (such as broken
bones, cuts, blisters, tumors), loops in time (in which the exact same
sequence of events repeats), time overlaps (in which a person interacts
with someone from the past or future), great distances being covered in
very short amounts of time, traffic lights and weather changing
instantaneously in tandem with one's thoughts, spoon bending with one's
thoughts, broken things being whole and fully functional without being
repaired, empty containers (including gas tanks) being full without being
refilled, money appearing in a wallet, food appearing on the counter,
shelves and in the refrigerator (sometimes audibly), lights being flipped
on or off without switches being touched, changing something from the past
(such as the text in an old book), and objects teleporting from one
location to another.
I currently know of no way to prove reality shifts, since
physical evidence and witnesses so often change right along with whatever
else has changed, resulting in my experiencing a reality in which people
tell me "it's always been like this," when I inquire about why a new
structure has arisen overnight, looking like it's been there for months or
years. Regarding the matter of an item which has disappeared, sometimes the
reappearance occurs at a very different time and place, making its
reappearance dramatic and noteworthy. My daughter's tooth was lost one day
at school after it had fallen out, and I was amazed when it reappeared a
few inches above my hand many hours later that evening as I was writing a
note to myself about how my daughter had lost her tooth at school that day.
Such obvious reality shifts clearly indicate to me that there has been a
shift in reality, and that something which had gone missing in one place
has now been teleported to another time and place where it was desired. You
may be interested to peruse the results from the first survey on reality
shifts that was conducted in 2000 which describe some of the most commonly
reported types of reality shifts. Those survey results are posted online
