"We are what we pretend to be,
so we must be careful about
what we pretend to be."
- Kurt Vonnegut
When I was a little girl and heard my mother tell me some flowers were
forsythia, I thought she meant they were for me, "for Cynthia." Once my
confusion was cleared up and I understood their name just happened to sound
like they were mine, I enjoyed thinking of these flowers as being for me...
and also that hyacinths were saying, “Hiya, Cynth!”
This kind of make-believe helped me feel welcomed by the garden, and was
harmless in a positive way. Rather than feeling the world was full of
things that weren't for me, I had quite the opposite sense--that many
things I had yet to meet were there especially for me.
Children spend a lot of time pretending and playing make-believe that they
are grown-ups, doing adult activities. This kind of imitation ensconces us
in a feeling of being completely at one with an experience, so it's no
wonder children love this type of play so much. Intriguingly,
studies show that humans
appear hard-wired to learn by 'over-imitation' , meaning that
unnecessary activities and extra steps are included when children observe
an adult doing them. A study by scientists at Yale found that children
follow demonstrated steps so faithfully that they will change their mind
about how various objects function, based on doing the extra steps.
Psychologist Derek Lyons explains, "What of all of this means is that
children's ability to imitate can actually lead to confusion when they see
an adult doing something in a disorganized or inefficient way. Watching an
adult doing something wrong can make it much harder for kids to do it
One of the things adults often lose as they give up childish things and
ways is a sense of make-believe and pretending... though what many adults
may not realize is that pretending never ends. When we recognize we learn
new material in a very holistic way... not just through watching or just by
listening, but with all of ourselves--mind, body, and spirit--we can better
understand that every time we learn something, we are pretending every step
of the way. And what we pretend matters a great deal, indeed.
Want to know how best to pretend so you
can feel most fully engaged and satisfied in body, mind and spirit? Keep
asking, "How good it can get?" and chances are extremely good you are well
on your way to finding

Paranormal Connection: Reality Shifts and Parallel
Paranormal Connection host Dänna Wilberg interviews best-selling
author Cynthia Sue Larson, talking about reality shifts, Qi energy, and
kundalini awakening. Reality shifts are macroscopic scale experiences of
quantum scale events... such as quantum entanglement, quantum tunneling,
and quantum teleportation. Parallel universes are one possible quantum
interpretation in physics, and Larson describes real life accounts that
seem to indicate we literally jump between parallel worlds. This
conversation covers what it takes to win the lottery, and how best to align
one's internal energies constructively, rather than destructively.
Discussion about why we sometimes see more of what we fear, and how our
mind organizes information like an orchestra conductor holding a vision of
how a symphonic musical composition is played. This is the first part of a
two-part interview. http://youtu.be/ObjByFTpR2o

Q & A with Joni McLachlan
I’m grateful to know a number of remarkably inspirational men
and women who may not yet be household names, but who are making profound,
positive changes on Earth. It’s my great honor and pleasure to
introduce one such woman to you who I’ve known since
2009–Joni McLachlan. We have a wonderful time talking about
turning fear into love and the amazing healing power of Galactic Blue. http://wp.me/pbqQk-lH
Out-of-Print Book Appears for Sale
I listened to the talk you gave and it was wonderful.
Then, something strange happened which seems to happen when I'm
connected with you. It all has to do with a book. When I was a
little girl, my grandmother had a very strange book called Tales that Nimko
told. Nimko was an elf, and the stories were very odd and very
magical. Because I loved the book so much, my grandmother
eventually gave it to me. I cherished it and always kept it in a
safe place. When I moved to Wisconsin from New Mexico, I packed it
carefully but when I unpacked my things, it was no where to be found. I
couldn't imagine what had happened to it. I was just heartbroken.
This was 14 years ago. Every once in awhile I would go on the internet to
book search sites and type in the name, but there never was a
match. I don't think it was widely published. Of course I also
hoped that the one my grandmother had given me would reappear, but it never
did. Then around midnight of the evening of your talk, I woke up
with a very clear message in my head to go to the rare book website and
type in the name of the book. Even though I thought it was a crazy
thing to do in the middle of the night I did it, and there it was.
I couldn't believe it! I grabbed my credit card ordered it
and then printed a copy of the order because I knew in the morning I would
think it had all been a dream. I can't wait until it arrives, so I
can read it again. Perhaps someday I'll have a granddaughter to
read it to.
Note from Cynthia: What a wonderful experience--and thank you so
very much for telling me! I love the name of the book, "Tales that Nimko
Told," and get the warmest feeling about it. I'm so glad that you found a
copy of this beloved book for sale, and that you'll soon have it in hand
I have had more than one parallel reality, or more so "twighlight zone
moment". This one was particularly bizarre, and refreshing because I have a
witness. One day my friend and I were playing tennis. We were sparring back
and forth, when he hit the last of our 3 balls over into the next occupied
court. I was keeping track and knew for a fact it was the last ball, so I
ran right over to pick it up along with the others. As I bent over to pick
it up I heard someone say "that’s our ball". Confused, I looked
up and noticed 4 people staring at me. I paused, looked at the ball, looked
over to my friend, placed the ball down slowly and walked to my friend
totally dumbfounded. In shock I asked him if he saw what just happened as I
did. He said yes, then confused himself he reached behind into his shorts
pocket, and there was our Third ball! I just stood there with my mouth
hanging open; we couldn’t wrap our minds around it, so
eventually we carried on playing. I tell you I will Never forget that
Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for writing to me, and for
letting me know about your reality shift experience with the tennis ball.
I'm glad you had a witness, so you can be assured that something amazing
really did happen--sometimes when these shifts occur when we're alone, it's
easy to question whether we actually remember things

The orchid essences described in this book are like
'meditation in a bottle,' thanks to their powerful and immediate positive
effects. This book lovingly describes benefits from dozens of orchids grown
in a greenhouse on a beautiful Scottish isle, in a home which doubles as a
B&B for guests and workshop participants interested in learning about the
wonders of orchid flower essences.
I love the way author Don Dennis describes how he made the transformation
from flower essence distributor to orchid essence creator, largely thanks
to being invited by a lovely orchid to "Make an essence with me." While Don
may have thought, "you've got the wrong guy," most of us who've been
fortunate enough to have been graced with the uplifting benefits of
experiencing these essences would vigorously disagree. Orchid Essence
Healing provides readers with a history of flower essences and remedies, a
journal describing the birth and growth of Living Tree Orchid Essences
(LTOE), useful guidance for creating and selecting plant essences, and a
gorgeous catalogue of LTOE greeting cards, photo cards, essence tinctures,
I love the charts and diagrams included in Orchid Essence Healing that help
readers discern how various orchid essences and blended orchid essences
interact with the human body's energy centers. Primary and secondary
meridian centers are indicated for the orchid essences, so one can see, for
example, that Behold the Silence (comparetia macroplectron) works primarily
with the heart meridian, and secondarily with the Kidney. Another chart
colorfully indicates recommended orchid essences for human chakras, and a
third Venn diagram shows the author's perception of vibrational essences
and how various remedies relate to enhancers.
Before reading this book, I was unclear about the differences between Bach
Flower Remedies and Orchid Flower Essences. Orchid Essence Healing explains
that the differences are numerous. I've now come to understand that Orchid
Flower Essences are created with active participation from living flowers,
in such a way that their life force energies are given with each flower's
blessing into dishes of water lovingly placed under each blossom in a
special quiet room designated for this 'temple activity.' While Bach Flower
Remedies work on lower vibrational life issues, Orchid Flower Essences take
the recipient to some of the highest vibrational points... typically
attainable otherwise only after years of concentrated meditative effort.
I've personally tried three of the Living Tree Orchid Essences (LTOE)
described in Orchid Essence Healing, and each of these works consistently,
powerfully, and nearly instantaneously. I can't find enough superlatives to
adequately convey the sense of peace, calm, love, joy, groundedness,
connection, wisdom, clarity, protection and guidance that comes through
these 1.5 ounce bottles of orchid healing.
I greatly admire the tremendous generosity of heart and spirit shared by
Don Dennis, as he describes in exquisite detail just how one might create
one's own floral and plant essences. Reading his book, I feel like Don is
personally inviting me on a journey of exploration and wonder to see the
flowers and gardens around me open my eyes to a whole new sense of the
intelligence of the plant kingdom around me.
I love Orchid Essence Healing for the tremendous beauty of the orchid
photographs that grace most every page of this book. I love the
descriptions of the Latin names alongside orchid portraits and accompanied
by intuitive insights regarding the gifts each of these orchid essences
This book is a must for anyone who loves orchids, alternative healing,
meditation, and spirituality.
