How Good Can it Get?

Treasure Friends & Family

"Faithful friends are gifts from heaven:
Whoever finds one has found a treasure."

I was checking my email one seemingly ordinary Monday morning last month, when I got a phone call with news that a dear friend of mine had died. From that moment on I have felt a sensation akin to a cold wind blowing through my heart. Dozens of things every day remind me of my friend -- even romantic love songs, which may seem a bit odd, except now I see that so many sentiments in romantic love songs ring true for cherished friendships, too. "Baby, please don't go," takes on a profound new meaning.

The pillar of support my friend provided me with through her presence in my life is now under reconstruction, as I reconcile the transition of her physical presence from this world with the power of my memories of everything she meant and continues to mean to me. All the times I had been assuming would be there for us in the future will be lacking her companionship in one form, yet might still include aspects of her grace and beautiful character.

Just before hearing that my friend had died, this past month had been a busy one for me. After a southern California book tour, I presented a paper, "Retrocausality & Real Life Miraculous Reality Shift Healing Stories" at the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness conference at UC Berkeley. The key point of my talk was the concept of bicausality (forward and reverse causality together) in a multidimensional holographic universe. The idea that decision trees go both forward and backward in time allows us to constantly set a new forward path for ourselves even as we continuously resculpt what our past has meant to us.

Looking back at experiences with my friend who died gives me an opportunity to more deeply value so many little things that otherwise might pass by unnoticed. So many random comments she made to me over the years dance through my mind. I remember her laugh, and the way she so appreciated little things I said and wrote to her... and the times we had shared so much joy on vacations to British Columbia over the years.

My time of grieving this past month has brought me to the realization that something more is happening than "losing" a loved one. Yes, I know my dear friend is gone, and yes, the emotions of love I have for her continue to be extracted from my heart as time and the universe see fit. What I feel is something other than loss, per se, as I continually gain an ever deepening comprehension of what my friend shared and continues to share with me through memories of cherished moments and special times and interests.

The ache I feel in my heart following my friends death reminds me each day to love truly -- feeling the rapture and pain of connection to everyone and everything I love. As I breathe deeply and fully, I feel my heart breaking open, enriched with the treasure of connections to everyone and everything I love.

Happiness Can Spread Among People Like a Contagion, Study Indicates
Washington Post
5 December 2008
By Rob Stein
Happiness is contagious, spreading among friends, neighbors, siblings and spouses like the flu, according to a large study that for the first time shows how emotion can ripple through clusters of people who may not even know each other. The study of more than 4,700 people who were followed over 20 years found that people who are happy or become happy boost the chances that someone they know will be happy. The power of happiness, moreover, can span another degree of separation, elevating the mood of that person's husband, wife, brother, sister, friend or next-door neighbor. One person's happiness can affect another's for as much as a year, the researchers found, and while unhappiness can also spread from person to person, the "infectiousness" of that emotion appears to be far weaker.

How to Say Anything
by Cynthia Sue Larson
March 2010
Have you noticed how much easier it is to say something to someone who doesn't judge you or what you say? The best communication happens between people who feel well connected to one another, based on shared or similar needs that we can feel empathetic toward. These shared needs can then provide common ground for improved communication, and your ability to say anything that you feel truly needs to be said. When you need to talk to someone, but don't know how to say what needs to be said, it helps to honestly convey what matters most to you in ways that inspire compassion in others. Marshall Rosenberg and Carl Rogers developed an effective communication process called nonviolent communication that helps people discuss even the most delicate, difficult topics honestly and openly.

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Imagined Image Received on Cell Phone
Florida, USA

Over a year ago, Richard, Foxy and myself traveled from Arizona to Tampa, Florida. When we arrived we stayed with friends, these friends were troubled with different burdens and took many of their own issues out on us. We did not stay long. We mostly slept there during the night, and by morning headed to the beach to sort out our plans. My so-called friends made it so difficult for us that at one point I mentioned to Richard, "If only so-and-so could 'see' this image!" (A finger up in the air). Well, the next time we saw these friends, the husband brought up that he received a picture on his cell phone, and he described what I said and projected mentally with emotion. The picture was never taken and could never have been sent... yet, the image came through on his telephone screen! And to make this even more intriguing, when he tried to show me the picture on his cell phone, it was gone and no traces were found! Lol, life is interesting.

Note from Cynthia: I once had a related vanishing photograph reality shift experience, although not with a cell phone picture having been mysteriously sent before disappearing, and I recall having been completely amazed that: (1) I knew for sure that I had at one point held photographic prints and negatives in hand that I had taken, and then later (2) I knew for sure that the package of prints no longer contained these images -- they were gone both as prints and negatives, with a new photo count for the negatives on that roll of film, as if they had never existed. Your psychically sent photo story also reminds me of a story I mention in chapter eight of my book Aura Advantage in the section on Aura Photography and Imaging, in which people get images to appear on photographs.

Online Game Record Vanished
Florida, USA

I played an online tournament that just started and was to be ongoing for three to four days. As I was quickly losing in the rankings, and dropping in the free start up funding, the game came to a fast end. I recall thinking to myself a silent wish to have another chance to start that game over again. The next morning, while checking the casino, I noted with some surprise that there was no record of such a game having started the night before. This casino lists up-and-coming, playing, and completed tournaments, so it should have appeared... yet there was no mention of the game I played.The shift is that the game is now scheduled for the 8th.of the month. At least Richard saw that I was playing the tournament that night!

Note from Cynthia: How wonderful that you get a fresh start on this game, and that even though you know you were playing it, and even have a witness, you can begin anew. I love this kind of shift... it reminds me of some lucid dreams I've had in which I think to myself during the dream "This is not how I'd like things to go," and then I get to start the whole sequence of events over again. This kind of do-over reality shift feels extra nice!


(5) Reality Shifting Q and A / Mail Bag

Aura Advantage
Hi Cynthia,
My name is Harry and I am writing from Australia. I am extremely in touch with my spiritual side and am on the journey to learn about auras. While browsing I came across a really interesting book of yours called Aura Advantage. I did a bit of research and found extremely positive feedback regarding the book. However, I see there are two different editions and was wondering which one of the two you recommend. The 2003 edition had really interesting celebrity referrals, does the newer addition also contain that information? Please get back to me. Thank you,

Dear Harry,
Thanks for writing to me regarding the two editions of my book, Aura Advantage. The second edition of the book does contain the same information in the first edition, as well as some additional color illustrations and a few updates. I hope you'll really enjoy it!
lots of love,

Genie in Your Genes

The Genie in Your Genes
Epigenetic Medicine and the New Biology of Intention

by Dawson Church
Classic Guide to Healing Power of Epigenetics

THE GENIE IN YOUR GENES is a book that is so well written, so well researched, and so inspirational that it is destined to become a classic. While the term epigenetics is not yet a household word, it is definitely a word worth learning, along with all it implies with regard to our health. Bringing the old "nature VS nurture" discussion into the 21st century, we are now in a world in which the human genome project has mapped some 24,000 human genes. Just like a map, this DNA information provides us with only the barest comprehension of what is going on. We are just beginning to understand some of the factors that trigger disease in one person but not another when both carry the same genetic DNA. The key to understanding epigenetics comes from grasping the concept that the genes each human inherits at birth is just part of the picture. How those genes express (or do not express) is vitally important as well. There are many factors outside of our DNA which have a great deal to do with switching various genes on and off, and GENIE IN YOUR GENES explores a phenomenal range of ways we can greatly improve our health and well-being through things like diet, meditation, acupuncture, belief therapy, EFT, prayer and even the way we feel about our relationship with our Creator. GENIE IN YOUR GENES presents an exhilarating review of some of the most recent research in epigenetics in such a way that provides readers with a map of how to better ensure good mental, psychological and physical health. Packed with pertinent information and factual details, GENIE IN YOUR GENES gives down-to-Earth, practical advice anyone can follow who seeks new inspiration and ideas for improving our health that we can initiate and maintain on our own. I give GENIE IN YOUR GENES my highest recommendation, and encourage you to be sure to get at least two copies of this outstanding book -- one for your bookshelf, and one to loan.
