Reality Shifts
In April 2000, Cynthia Sue Larson of RealityShifters conducted the first-ever online survey of reality shifts (aka: "glitches in the Matrix," quantum jumping, mind-matter interaction) over a two month period with a total of 395 participants, far surpassing her original goal of 200 survey takers. The purpose of this survey was to determine which types of reality shifts are most commonly observed, and how people feel when encountering these experiences. Five $10 gift certificates were awarded as prizes in a random drawing after the survey was completed. A rich variety of reality shift experiences are shared in the best-selling book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World.

How Do You Shift Reality?
The First Ever Reality Shifting Survey Results Are In!

Cynthia Sue Larson

Survey Methodology:
An online survey was conducted over a two month period, with self-selected participants answering a list of twenty questions either at the Zoomerang web site, or by emailing their answers in. A total of 395 people participated in this survey, far surpassing the original goal of 200 participants. People were encouraged to complete this survey regardless of whether they believe in the phenomenon of reality shifts, or had ever even experienced reality shifts in their lives. Five $10 gift certificates were awarded as a survey incentive to randomly selected survey participants at the end of April 2000.

Summary of Survey Results:
95% of all survey respondents notice synchronicity and coincidence in their daily life; 86% have noticed time seem to slow down, stop, or speed up; and 78% often find parking spaces when and where they need them most. Only 8% of the respondents have ever bent spoons or other metal without forcing the objects to bend, and 6% of the respondents haven't ever witnessed reality shifts. Of those who do notice reality shifts, the most common emotional reaction to witnessing the shifts are feelings of curiosity (62%) and excitement (45%), followed by feeling awestruck (37%), happy (33%), and confused (26%). A majority of the respondents feel that noticing reality shifts has changed their attitudes (59%), 55% feel that observing reality shifts has changed their beliefs, and 45% feel that both their attitudes and beliefs have changed as a result of witnessing reality shifts. People were encouraged to complete this survey regardless of whether they believe in the phenomenon of reality shifts, or had ever even experienced reality shifts in their lives.
