The hundreds of first-hand accounts of reality shifts (aka:
mind-matter interaction MMI, quantum jumping, glitches in the Matrix) on
this and the following pages 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. Hundreds of stories
are reported here in this "Your RealityShifter Stories" section of this web
site, and the phenomenon is documented in the best-selling book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the
Bows Appeared Before I Sewed Them
I experienced a truly extraordinary shift in reality about eleven years ago
while sewing some valances for my windows. I had decided to put bows on the
top of the gathers on two balloon valances that each required two bows, so
I needed to make four bows. As I set out making the bows, I thought about
what a monotonous job it was, because I had to run a seam down a narrow
piece of fabric and then turn the whole thing inside-out so the seam would
be inside the bow.
I didn't mind making the bows that much, though, since sewing is pretty
relaxing for me. Here is a point that should be noted: As I sewed, I
pictured VERY clearly in my mind how nice the valances would look once
they were up, picturing the bows jauntily perched at the tops of the
I sewed, ironed, and tied the first bow, and pushed it to the back of the
sewing machine. I then sewed, ironed, and tied the second bow, and put it
with the first bow behind the sewing machine. As I prepared to cut the
fabric for the third bow, something on the bed in back of me and to my left
caught my eye. I turned to see what it was, and was absolutely stunned to
see TWO MORE bows lying on the bed, side by side. These bows were already
ironed flat, tied, and completed.
Well, I very nearly had a mini-meltdown. I have had many reality shifts
in my life, and knew what had happened, but had not experienced a
reality shift for a long while, so I sat and really wondered for a few
minutes if I were losing my mind.
Now I believe that the clear picture that I had in my mind of the
finished valances just helped me make a shortcut through time and space
to the time/place when/where the bows were finished. Do you remember the
song "Scarlet Ribbons?" Apparently the universe doesn't care if it's
something very insignificant to others, just that it's important to you at
the time, like scarlet ribbons for a little girls hair, or pink bows for
your window valances.
That experience was a profound one for me, because it involved
the appearance of something that I allegedly "made" myself. That's why I
seriously questioned my sanity for a few minutes, wondering
if perhaps I had completed them and then just forgotten making them.
I would have had an easier time accepting the appearance of a ring or other
lost object. We read and hear about experiences involving watches and other
"premanufactured" objects appearing, but rarely about hand-crafted items
manufacturing themselves right there in one's bedroom! It was a strong
lesson for me, one felt very deeply, about the process of creation.
Perhaps after we have grown more in understanding, we will question our
sanity if we ever find ourselves in a situation where we give ourselves
the illusion that it takes "time" to create a form or circumstance we
want, rather than having it come to us instantaneously, as it does in
reality. I now know the truth, and question why I still allow myself to
hold on to so many illusions. For entertainment? Out of fear? What?
Books Tossed Out Reappear Again
I'd like to share one of my favourite manifesting stories. I smile every
time I remember it!
When I moved away from home eight years ago, I brought all my favorite
childhood books with me. I kept them in boxes for years, until last year
when I went through a 'clearing the clutter' phase. I was a bit too
ruthless. I decided to get rid of a couple of books that I thought I'd
never miss, even though they were very old.
A couple of months down the line I was talking about these books with
my fiance, feeling quite excited to show them to him. I went searching
through the attic, and when I couldn't find them I suddenly remembered...
I'd thrown them out! Oh no! I was gutted! Really annoyed with myself. I sat
down and begged the universe to bring them back! I really really wanted
them back. I didn't see how it was possible to get the same ones back, of
course. I assumed I'd probably find replacement books in a second hand
shop or something.
A month later I emailed my mum to tell her I'd been looking for these
books. She emailed me back a few days later to say she'd found a box
of old books which were my brother's, and in it were the two books I'd
thrown out! They were the very same ones, with the home made stickers with
my name and age written on the cover! I was sooooo happy! The universe had
given them back to me!
My beloved cat "Mister Purrby" passed in November of last year. He always
loved to lounge in his catnapper that is positioned in front of the window.
In January I found a beautiful cat, "Minnie," not quite a year old at the
shelter and brought her home with me. Since Purrby's catnapper was old and
worn from his weight (he was a hefty 29 pounds of white fur), I purchased a
new one for Minnie, which I securely attached to the windowsill. Minnie
soon decided this was her favorite spot.
Minnie and I were on the couch watching TV the other day, when out of the
blue the catnapper just fell down. When I looked at it, I saw a clear
impression in the padding. This was highly peculiar, because I had just
fluffed the bedding earlier and cleaned the catnip off it. I had also
checked it then, and noted that it was very stable. Odd!
When I went back to watch TV, shortly after the catnapper had fallen, the
little fan in the living room just stopped. I checked the plug to make sure
it was plugged in, and saw that it was. I thought perhaps there had been an
electrical problem, but nothing else had fluctuated... so I figured the fan
had seen it's day. A few minutes later, the fan started up again!
Minnie will not go near the catnapper now. I want to believe my Purrby
Lid'l Dolly Dress Appears
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
June 18th was a day of many reality shifts for me, one of which I'll
share with you now. My youngest brother is a single father of two, who
works very hard for very little. He seldom has much extra money for
for the kids, let alone special clothing. He found himself
stressing over an upcoming semi-formal family event. I
had an extra little boy's three piece suit minus a shirt which I
had dry cleaned and brought with me for my nephew. My sister-in-law
said she had lots of dresses and would pick out a nice one for
my niece. While the dress she picked out for my niece would do,
it wasn't quite up to what the rest of the little girls would be wearing.
When I left my brothers place, all I could think of was "I wish I could
afford to buy a Lid'l Dolly dress for Emily." Now, I live in Canada, Lid'l
Dolly dresses are made and sold exclusively for Dollywood in Tennessee. I
have never come
across a Lid'l Dolly anywhere in Canada, and the website for the Lid'l
Dolly dresses states it does not ship to Canada.
So we went on with all of our shopping, stopping at dollar stores,
drug stores, and grocery stores. We went into Walmart, and looked through
litle girl's clothing but couldn't find anything appropriate. On our
way out, I turned to my husband and said "I'm going to Value
Village, and I'm going to find the perfect dress for Emily there."
The Value Village thrift store is not a place I normally frequent, although
I do like consignment stores. When we got to the parking lot of Value
Village, I sent out the desire to the universe for the perfect
dress for Emily. We then all went inside -- hubby, Sis in law, son Mic,
and myself. I was halfway across Value Village when I saw the
familiar yards and yards of lace. Yes, it was a brand new, tags still
Lid'l Dolly, in size 4! Not only had a Lid'l Dolly manifested,
but it was also Emily's size! Now, what are the chances of not
only coming across a Lid'l Dolly, but in the perfect size, color,
and price range ($7)! Thank you Universe!
We also found the perfect shirt to match the Lid'l
Dolly for my nephew to wear with his suit, since it turned out that my
didn't have a dress shirt in my nephew's size.
