See What is Truly Real

"When you learn to listen and see what is truly real, you will hear and see much more than your senses tell you."
- from Karen Kimball & the Dream Weaver's Web

News travels very quickly these days, and with so much shocking information moving from all points of the world faster than ever before, it's possible to feel a bit overwhelmed or even traumatized. There is a greater need than ever for each of us to make time to slow down, heighten our sense of true connection to nature and ourselves, and gain a deeper heartfelt understanding of what is truly real. Such a practice of mindfulness is recently being scientifically shown to help people respond to people and situations in the present moment, rather than being triggered to react.

The key to becoming and remaining mindful and grounded lies in making time to center oneself each day with a sense of what is happening right here, right now. Even the simplest activities, such as waking up, breathing, drinking, eating, and walking can be mindful. Bringing complete and full attention to what is actually happening right here and now is a powerful way to stay in responsive, rather than reactive, relationship with the world and those around us. Matters that had seemed of great importance suddenly take a back seat, as we can focus on telling loved ones how much we care, and make time to show compassion, appreciation, and kindness in everything we do. By reaching out to assist others, we benefit from the knowledge that we live in a compassionate world; when we focus more on kindness than proving we are right, we establish a sustainable basis for a community we enjoy living in.

Japanese Phoenix PendantJapanese Phoenix
What a source of inspiration the Japanese people have been following the terrible disasters this past month. I've been extremely impressed with the degree of thoughtful consideration and cooperation shown by so many Japanese people after the terrible earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crises of the past month. Rather than focusing on selfish interests, people are consistently staying focused on doing everything possible to share what precious resources with neighbors and strangers as much as family and friends. This is a time when much can be appreciated as long as one views the world through wise eyes that see beyond the superficial to observe unexpected and simple joys amidst earthquake aftershocks, rolling blackouts, and resource shortages.

Karen Kimball
The recent crisis in Japan presents us with an opportunity to extend support and assistance through prayer and donations. Spiritual jeweler David Weitzman says he will donate all profits from the sale of the Japanese Phoenix Pendant to Japanese earthquake and tsunami survivors. David said he envisioned the design for this beautiful pendant prior to the powerfully destructive disasters last month. After the earthquake and tsuanmi hit, Weitzman knew the importance of this very special design, which symbolizes rebirth, resurrection, and hope.

The opening quote in this month's RealityShifters comes from my book, Karen Kimball and the Dream Weaver's Web, a story about a ten-year-old girl who discovers secrets of a lake at swim camp while developing abilities to see and hear things ohers can't -- talking with animals and spirits, affecting other peoples thoughts, and flying to hidden places. Karen discovers ways to become mindful, in order to master her newfound abilities in time to save the camp and her friends. Karen Kimball is now available in paperback, Kindle, and ebook editions -- and is a great gift idea for sensitive young people who can benefit from reading about a responsive, mindful, proactive and compassionate heroine.

Teleseminar -- Is Consciousness Energy?
6 April 2011 at 5 pm Pacific, 6 pm Mountain, 7 pm Central, 8 pm EST
This one hour teleseminar looks really interesting -- this is a live (free!) teleseminar happening April 6th with Dr. Dean Radin and Christian de Quincy. What is consciousness? It's an age-old question that still stretches the limits of science. Is consciousness a form of energy? Christian de Quincey has dedicated a career to exploring this puzzle — philosophy's "hardest problem," science's "final frontier," and spirituality's "deepest mystery." Using the Four Gifts of Knowing, he guides us into this perennial mystery. Join Dr. de Quincey to explore different theories of consciousness, how mind and body are related, and how consciousness can make things happen in the physical world.

Scientists Seek to Treat Chronically Traumatized Brains
by Scott Johnson
Oakland Tribune
30 March 2011
Bessel van der Kolk, president of the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies, conducted a study to track differences between chronically traumatized and otherwise normal brains. The brain, he surmised, held the key to both the roots and the treatment for severe trauma. "This study changed my whole understanding of what trauma is about," van der Kolk said. "Trauma was no longer about something that happened a long time ago, it was about being unable to fully engage with the present. Nothing new was coming into the brain." Traumatic experiences leave an imprint in the central part of the brain called the medial prefrontal cortex, which helps regulate our relationship to ourselves -- to self-reflect and self-observe, and to establish social relationships with others. A number of recent scientific case studies indicate mindfulness can help trauma victims, as it is associated with developing the kinds of positive social and emotional experiences trauma victims typically lack.


(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

marble manifestation
Marble Manifestation
Noble, Oklahoma, USA

I was seated and meditating, then began practicing forming mental balls of green healing light and sent one sailing off Eastward after speaking that it was for my sister. It obediently departed thence. Gleefully I formed another and spoke 'now one for my brother' and it sailed off Westward. Satisfied with myself, I began waking when I heard the voice often heard at that stage, which said "suddenly he becomes our clairvoyant". I began to consider that prospect, then announced "I'm not sure I want my development to proceed in that direction. I would need some sign of support." Whereupon I heard a loud bang, something like dropping a heavy book about four feet. I opened my eyes, as I had been meditating.

Searching for the cause, I found no holes in the wall or ceiling. Nothing fallen from high places. Nothing broken. Then my gaze fell upon the center of the kitchen table, previously bare, where I saw what appeared to be a ball of mud, a bit over an inch in diameter. It glistened with a film of moisture oozing out. I then studied it from every angle, and it seemed to be just barely touching the table. Scrutinizing it closely, I was able to see that  no moisture was on the table beneath it, and no fingerprints were on it  before I touched it, and it had no flat bottom from its own weight on the table. The words 'held in a field' came to mind.

Finally, I picked it up and inspected it closely. The perfect sphere showed no signs of flattening from its own weight upon some surface, and nothing else but the effects of my own fingertips. I held it under the faucet and washed the mud away, to discover in its center a child's marble - it's own surface marked with minute scratches showing usage. Then holding it up to the light - it was clear with imbedded therein two rose-colored disks at right angles intersecting each other. I marveled upon discovering that when held so as to look along their common axis, they made a rose colored cross! A bit later, with exhilaration, I telephoned the Rosicrucian organization in California and asked if this was some method they were using for recruitment. I was told "No, but then God works in mysterious ways!" Of course I have kept the marble as a talisman.

My feelings at the time were first playful [sending healing balls], then curious as I looked for the sound-cause and found the marble, then awestruck as I examined it more closely and objectively. Afterward I felt a deep satisfaction that I had indeed been given my sign.

Note from Cynthia:I love this story so very much because I've also experienced a manifestation of something appearing right in front of me on a couple of different occasions, and in both of these experiences, I had been meditating at the time. On one occasion a tooth my daughter had lost at school earlier in the day appeared in front of me (I was alone in my bedroom at the time), and on another occasion I was painting an energy portrait of a woman and describing the crystalline clarity of love in her heart as she and I both witnessed a crystal appear out of thin air and land exactly on the section of the painting where I was drawing the energy of her heart. If these things had not happened to me, I would probably be quite skeptical that objects can manifest "out of thin air" before our very eyes.


Blue Washcloth Inside Pants Pocket
Ann R. Davis

Okay, so I am not sure about losing keys, etc. being a reality shift, though I have had some things that seemed to disappear off the face of the earth. I decided to ask for testing of this theory. Prayed, meditated. Lost an object, but... Then I did a load of laundry one day. I decided to add this large blue washcloth to the light laundry. I remember this quite well, since I debated about whether or not it would bleed, and then tossed it in with the other stuff. When I was taking everything out, I noticed my husband's pant's pocket was heavy. I was puzzled, thinking I had taken out the contents, the handkerchief, before washing it. I pulled it out (it was not easy to get out), and saw it was the blue washcloth, crammed in there. How easy could it be for such a thing to insert itself into a pocket during a washcycle?

I had paid particular attention to it, wondering whether or not to add it to the load. For it to end up crammed into a pants pocket was strange to me. I have had laundry tangled up every which way, but never shoved into a pants pocket. Normally, the pants were not easy to get even a handkerchief out of before washing. This washcloth was bulky. It was difficult for me to pull it out before drying. No one else could have interfered with the laundry, since I was alone at home. Barring the possibility of my being senile and doing it myself, I would say it was quite strange. I do think it is an important point that I was seeking validation or not, of this kind of reality shift.

Would you say I caused the washcloth to insert itself into the pocket for whatever reason - say I want to believe that such an incident is a reality shift?  If so, then I wish I could do something useful with such a gift. Or would you say this is a collective phenomenon, which reveals itself in times that are appropriate or favorable for such a revelation to occur (leading the human race upward, or to question reality)?

Note from Cynthia:This story of the washcloth-crammed-into-pocket is indeed strange, and in my decades of laundry experience, noteworthy and significant. In all the loads of laundry I've done, no such thing has ever happened, and I regularly run loads of washcloths with pants-with-pockets. Ruling out someone interfering with the load of laundry to cram the washcloth into the pants pocket, I'd say this definitely is a reality shift experience... based on the fact that such things ordinarily do not occur. Regarding the how and why of the occurrence... I do believe it's sufficient that you'd just recently been reading and thinking about reality shifts, with an open mind to witnessing them. It seems to me that people in general are experiencing reality shifts in greater numbers than before.

(5) Reality Shifting Q and A / Mail Bag

Regarding "alive again" -
if that person or animal has died in one parallel universe, does their soul/spirit (or part of it) go to a "spirit realm" in a parallel universe? My point being that: do the higher vibrating dimensions also have parallels, as well as the physical universe? I think a lot about this- the physical world as we know it is made of atoms, so I guess that the higher dimensions are composed of atoms as well but of a different structure? It also intrigues me that, in some worlds, someone possibly isn't born, yet they exist in another world. I am also certain that I saw Larry Hagman's death announced on Ceefax some years ago; today, "Columbo" was on and I once thought that Peter Falk had died, but he hasn't.
Best wishes,

Dearest Jacqui,
That's a good question regarding the relationship of spirit to parallel universes. My intuitive sense of this is that on the spiritual levels, we are all one... across parallel worlds, alternate realities, and other dimensions of existence. To the degree that we are typically consciously aware of only one (or possibly a few) realities at any given time, our spirit is extended further than our consciousness usually goes. Sometimes we can get glimpses of other possibilities, and this seems to me to be one of the main reasons we dream... so we may better weave together possible futures and possible pasts. 
lots of love,

Something Unknown is Doing We Don't Know

Something Unknown is Doing We Don't Know What
by Renée Scheltema
Fascinating, Fun Scientific Evidence for Psychic Phenomena

Scientific evidence exists for telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, psychokinesis & psychic healing... and it's fun to watch! Film-maker Renée Scheltema set out to find explanations for some seemingly inexplicable experiences she and her daughter encountered, treating us to a fairly comprehensive summary of some of the most current scientific findings in the field of consciousness today. This documentary brings us into the homes and offices of some of the world's most thoughtful and well-spoken authors and visionaries who earn a living exploring the place where science and spirit meet... a place which can at times be frustrating to accurately describe, as its very existence challenges us to expand previous limits and boundaries of our ways of sensing, thinking, and knowing what is true. Interviews with Edgar Mitchell, Dr. Larry Dossey, Dean Radin, Hal Puthoff, Charles Tart, Rupert Sheldrake, Gary Schwartz, Jack Houck, Nancy Myer, Erik Pearl and Arielle Ford are artfully interspersed with footage depicting what is being discussed. I love the way this film includes footage of Oscar the cat, who knows when people are about to die, and John of God in Brazil, conducting psychic surgeries and miraculous healing. Examples are shown of remote viewing, spoon bending, dogs who know when their owners are coming home, people proving experimentally that they can correctly guess twice as well as mere chance would allow who is calling them on the phone, and people reacting in advance to pictures they have not yet viewed. I loved seeing the PEAR (Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research) experiments, and some of the current work being done at IONS (the Institute of Noetic Sciences). While a precise explanation for "What is going on here?" may still elude us, this film includes some possible theories such as Rupert Sheldrake's concept of morphogenic fields, and zero point energy. There indeed seems to be some kind of mechanism allowing for "emotional futures to leak backward," as Dean Radin observes, and each and every one of us has access to the tools such as meditation, dreaming, and dancing that allow us to focus and then release our attention in ways that allow unconscious psychic senses to come forward into our consciousness, so we can experience how it feels to transcend time and space. Viewing this amazing movie left me feeling tremendously uplifted, inspired, and energized. This is a DVD to share with family, friends, and everyone who may not realize just how much evidence exists for telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, psychokinesis and psychic healing. Truly fabulous!

Iron Butterfly

Iron Butterfly:
Memoir of a Martial Arts Master

by Choon Ok Harmon & Ana Maria Rodriguez
Inspirational Story of a "Mermaid's Daughter" Turned Martial Artist

This page-turner memoir of a martial arts master transported me to another world of arranged marriages and people living in great poverty off whatever food the land and sea had to provide on the small Korean island of Koje Do. Choon Ok's mother kept her family alive through extraordinarily difficult times with little to no help from her father, always working to do her best for her family, no matter the personal risks to herself. Choon Ok's mother had an dangerous job as a 'mermaid' or 'haenyo,' diving without wetsuit or oxygen tank to fish in the sea through all weather and seasons... even in winter when icicles formed in her hair. Additional hardships for Choon Ok's family included losing all their possessions twice, once during a voyage at sea after the end of the Japanese occupation of Korea, and again when a typhoon struck their island, destroying their home. Choon Ok's life took a dramatic turn when her father died, giving her mother the opportunity to move off the island to mainland Korea, where new opportunities (and hazards) awaited. The most life-changing opportunity for Choon Ok was her discovery of the Korean martial art, Kuk Sool Won. Choon Ok overcame numerous obstacles to pursue her martial arts studies, and thanks to tireless practice and tremendous commitment to her studies, she became highly skilled doing something that helped her and her loved ones live a better life. It was not common for a young woman to become a thoroughly dedicated martial arts student, nor did most people expect that such a small young woman could so fully defend herself, and Choon Ok proved her martial arts proficiency again and again. What makes this memoir so remarkable is the way it so clearly describes the dramatic changes to Choon Ok's life from such impoverished beginnings to experiencing a whole new life as a well respected martial artist in Korea, and then in an entirely new country, America, where women lead lives they choose. In a few short decades, Choon Ok's experience of the world was entirely transformed, primarily due to her tremendous resolve to dedicate her life to continuing her studies of Kuk Sool Won in America. Choon Ok's grace and grit when dealing with a variety of challenges, such as overcoming a kind of dyslexia that prevented her from learning movements quickly or easily is remarkable. Her faith in those she most respects and believes in, such as the grandmaster of Kuk Sool Won, In Hyuk Suh, proved to be well placed and transformative in many positive ways. "Iron Butterfly" is the most engaging, intriguing and inspirational memoir I've ever read. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in improving their life or pursuing their dreams, especially when it seems others don't understand or support their vision. As Master Harmon demonstrates by the shining example of her life, we can strengthen ourselves by consistently choosing to develop inner character based on qualities of courage and commitment, rather than surrendering to fears, doubts, criticism, or blame. We are able to be and do much more than we ever imagine, and our choice to nurture and develop our character and skills through dedication and hard work can change our lives for the better in amazing, wonderful ways.
