RealityShifters News - April 2005
Create Your Best Life!
Open the Gateways to Perception

Wavy Gravy & Cynthia Sue LarsonCamp Winnarainbow creator, Wavy Gravy walking his bass, Saul, with Cynthia Sue Larson on a crisp Spring day in San Francisco

"What we have in mind is breakfast in bed for 400,000."
Woodstock emcee Wavy Gravy

Sometimes the very best ideas are the ones that seem most peculiar when first encountered. I couldn't help but wonder why multiple award-winning humanitarian Wavy Gravy was walking a fish on a leash through downtown San Francisco... until I noted how passersby smiled and stared. "People don't ask me for spare change when I'm walking Saul," he explained. I knew what he meant! Seeing something so unusual has the effect of opening peoples' minds to new possibilities, and opening gateways to increased perception. It's hard to continue life on autopilot when confronted with something completely unexpected.

Whenever I experience anything surprising or new, whether in the form of someone walking a fish or a shift in reality, I feel my senses becoming sharper as I pay increased attention to everything going on around me. This month, realityshifters discussion list members took a poll about the types of reality shifts we've encountered at:

    What types of reality shifts have you observed/experienced?


    Type of Reality Shift % Observed
    Coincidence/Synchronicity 11.84
    Manifestation/Wishes Granted 9.80
    Missing Things Reappear 8.98
    Weather Changes to Match Intent 6.94
    Objects Repaired 6.53
    Objects Transformed 6.53
    Spontaneous Remissions 6.53
    Someone Hears Your Thoughts 6.53
    Changing the Past 5.71
    Identical Event Repeats 5.31
    Dead People Alive Again 5.31
    Objects Transported 4.90
    Poltergeist Effect 4.08
    Past/Future Communication 3.67
    Materializations 3.27
    Street Lights Go Out (Sliders) 3.27
    Coin & Spoon Bending 0.82

Precisely because these types of experiences are considered to be a bit on the unusual side, they serve to direct attention toward the possibility that consciousness is affecting the physical world around us. I am intrigued to see how common it is for people to notice how weather changes to match our intent, and also that objects can be repaired and transformed. I am surprised to see that only a couple of people had witnessed metal bending without force, but I realize this statistic can change fairly quickly once people throw a spoon bending party or two!

lots of love,

Brain Region Learns to Anticipate Risk, Provides Early Warnings, Suggests New Study in Science
By Gerry Everding
Washington University in St. Louis
17 February 2005
While some scientists discount the existence of a sixth sense for danger, new research from Washington University in St. Louis has identified a brain region that clearly acts as an early warning system -- one that monitors environmental cues, weighs possible consequences and helps us adjust our behavior to avoid dangerous situations.

Weird Links with Words and Colours in the Mind

Synaesthesia, a condition in which people make weird sensory associations, may rely more on the plasticity of the brain than on any genetic predisposition, according to researchers at the University of Oxford. We are all capable of having synaesthetic experiences.

Brain not Body Makes Athletes Feel Tired
by James Randerson
New Scientist Magazine
29 July 2004
Fatigue is in the mind, not the muscles, suggests a new study at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. The finding could lead to treatments for conditions like chronic fatigue syndrome, or the development of illicit performance enhancing drugs. Traditionally, fatigue was viewed as the result of over-worked muscles ceasing to function properly, but evidence is mounting that our brains cause us to feel weary after exercise, possibly in order to prevent muscle damage.

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

New Hampshire

"Old Mother Hubbard went to the cupboard to find her doggie a bone; but when she got there, the cupboard was bare, and so the poor doggie had none. Old Mother Hubbard returned to the cupboard to find her doggie a bone; and when she got there, a bone was now where, before there had only been none."

I guess I should record what looks like a Reality Shift. The other night, I was running out of cigarettes and didn't want to go to the store in this lousy weather. I tried rationing them, but ran out some time after the stores closed. I always buy a carton of cigarettes and keep the packages neatly piled on my dresser drawer. I must have checked to see if there were any there about four times, and even remember looking closely and feeling the location in case a stray pack slipped behind it, but there were definitely no packs left. Feeling resigned to the fact that I had smoked all my remaining cigarettes, I was sitting at the computer wanting a cigarette, when, lo and behold, I turned to see a full pack of unopened cigarettes at the official dresser drawer location.

In 1998, I took a two-hour car ride with my friends, Joy and Amber through from San Jose through San Francisco to Santa Rosa, California, where we were attending a spiritual event. We chatted about a number of topics throughout the trip over to San Francisco. One of the subjects that stands out to this day turned out to be one of the most synchronistic events I have ever experienced.

I talked about my former boss, "Al," from the company Id left in June 1990 when I went "full time" with my healing work. I had inherited money from the unexpected deaths of my parents the previous year. I figured it I didn't quit the corporate field then, I might miss my opportunity. The extra money would tide me over if I didn't earn enough from the healing work.

I got along great with Al. He was strict with his evaluations, but fair and generous. He was a great manager and people person. After leaving, I had only been back about once the first year after I left to say "hi" to him and a few of the staff I had been friendly with. It had been years since I had seen or talked about him.

When we reached the Golden Gate Bridge, I remember saying something about us soon crossing the bridge, as we came upon a sign for the toll booth (which was the 'no bridge fee' direction). I was looking forward to the experience. Although I have lived in the Bay Area for approximately 25 years, I can count on less than two hands the amount of times I have had the privilege of crossing over this man-made wonder and the beauty of the San Francisco expanse from this vantage point.

After the talk/meditation at the center, which had been very powerful and enjoyable, we went to get something to eat. About half-way through eating, it hit me hard, like a major revelation that I had no recollection of crossing the Golden Gate bridge. I turned to my friends and said, "How come we didn't cross the Golden Gate bridge?" They looked perplexed. They said we must have, although none of us has any memory of going across the bridge! Joy said to me today, as I write this, that her first memory after the toll booth announcement was the first tunnel we go through upon getting off of the bridge. It, oddly enough, has a rainbow painted on it! For those who know the San Francisco area, you know there is only one way to get from San Francisco to the Marin side. That way is the Golden Gate Bridge. No exceptions, unless you are in a boat on .the water and cross over. I chalked it up to another teleportation experience. So many were happening to me in those years.

On the way back, Amber asked to be dropped off at her father's house in Oakland. So, naturally, we decided to take the Richmond/San Rafael bridge back. After dropping Amber off, there were a few delays as we got a bit lost finding the freeway entrance from that location.

Once we got on Interstate 880 from Oakland to San Jose, it was probably about midnight.There was still a fair amount of traffic, which is not untypical for the bay area. I was fading fast, and found myself nodding off in between chatting with Joy. Around the Fremont area, I suddenly perked up, and glanced over to the lane to our right. Just up ahead, was a car with Al's personalized license plate (with his unusual last name on it) The car was a different one than the one he had when I knew him, but the plates were the same. I told Joy, "That's my former boss' car! Let's pull up closer." As we drew side-by-side, there was no mistaking Al's distinct profile, and his blonde wife next to him! This lasted about less than a minute as the next turnoff they exited the freeway. By the way, they lived in Fremont.

Now, if I was from a small town, this would not be an unusual occurrence to see someone from the past. What sets this experience apart is:

(1) There are approximately one million people in the greater San Jose area. Fremont is a bedroom community north of San Jose with a fairly large population of its own. You just don't run into people unless it involves synchronicity. Especially on a weeknight at midnight on a freeway.

(2) I had just talked about him a few hours before, which was highly unusual.

(3) We took a different route home and just happened to be a minute or so side-by-side on the same freeway before he exited. We feel that the delay in Oakland was a setup to put us there at the right time.

(4) In the seven years since then, I have never seen him again. Nor had I seen him in the eight years before that night.

(5) Reality Shifters Q & A

Q: Dear Cynthia,
Thank you very much for your ebook 'Shine with the aura of success'! This is the most awesome book I've read in a long time. And in such a short and sweet format too. I can feel that you're a person of radiant energy yourself -- no one else could have written this book! I've practiced your crown chakra meditation this morning and have already seen several synchronicities happen. Plus, I feel far better than before. I had no idea it was supposed to produce results this fast! I have a question -- does your book 'Aura Advantage' also come in an e-book format? If so, how can I order it?
Love and regards,
-- Sanjeev

A: Dear Sanjeev,
Thank you so much for your lovely email! At this time, I only have one ebook for sale. AURA ADVANTAGE is not available in ebook format, and it doesn't seem likely that the publisher, Adams Media, intends to allow for it to come out in ebook format. I appreciate your enthusiasm for my work, and thank you for letting me know that you'd be interested in more ebooks by me!
lots of love,
-- Cynthia

We Live Forever

We Live Forever
The Real Truth About Death

by PMH Atwater

Essential Reading for Seekers & Caregivers

PMH Atwater brings the subject of death to life with words both poetic and real in WE LIVE FOREVER. Sharing the most intimate details of her own near death experiences, Atwater invites us to open our minds to a deeper understanding of who we really are and how we are all interconnected through life and death. I love the way Atwater describes how everything in the universe breathes, and how we can be at one with each other and God when we breathe together. WE LIVE FOREVER includes essential information on assisting those who are dying to make the smoothest possible transition in easy-to-follow steps. This book contains numerous fascinating facts and stories that explain how we know when we are going to die, how we can see and feel peoples' prayers for us when we've died, and how many different types of experiences are available to us when we die. WE LIVE FOREVER is essential reading for anyone seeking answers to what awaits us when we leave our physical bodies behind, as well as for anyone caring for someone who is about to die.
