How Good Can it Get?

Double Your Fun with Superposition of States

"The first time I bi-located I was beside myself with excitement."
— Swami Beyondananda

A growing number of physicists agree that you and I and everything else exists in a superposition of states. There is increasing support for the idea that the ‘quantum realm’ is not relegated exclusively to the domain of the too-small-to-be-seen, but instead is part and parcel of everything in existence, including ourselves. This vast realm of possibility likely provides us with the means to enjoy benefits from the placebo effect—in which people notice improvements in test scores, reduced pain, increased mobility, and better vision when provided with placebo words of confidence, placebo surgery, placebo pills, and placebo airplane pilot accoutrement, as described in Quantum Jumps.

As usual, Nature is there first to show us just how such superposition of states can optimize a range of natural processes in the astonishing efficiency found in plants and animals. Photosynthesis occurs in plants with the efficiency of a quantum random walk, so plants achieve remarkable efficiencies of converting photons of light into stored energy far beyond anything humans have yet to achieve with photovoltaic technologies. Some birds such as the European robin navigate much better by the light of day, thanks to utilizing quantum processes that help them continuously and correctly maintain a correct sense of direction. Based on recent research findings in the fields of visual and olfactory science, I expect we’ll soon be seeing evidence of macroscopic quantum phenomena in all of our senses, from smell to vision to hearing to touch and taste.

While it is unlikely you will literally bump into one of your other possible selves, you might at times hear that someone saw you some place where you are certain you weren’t. As I’ve reported in past issues of RealityShifters, the phenomena of seeing loved ones before they arrive at their destination has been so well known for so many years in some parts of the world that they’ve got a name for it: Vardøgr (vard-deh-AY-grr), which is a Norwegian word meaning "premonitory sound or sight of a person before he arrives."

And perhaps most intriguingly, you may one day find (or have already noticed) some people seem to appear in your life who you are certain you should have previously come across before. I share my personal experiences being that someone who appeared out of nowhere—and also noticing someone important to me who seems to have come out of the blue—in my recent blog post, Meeting People Who Weren’t There Before

Meeting People Who Weren’t There Before
Have you noticed that some people seem to arrive in your life at exactly the right time--yet if they'd existed, you would have known them? Would you like to know what's up with that? When we contemplate the relatively large number of first-hand accounts of having seen people alive again after previously having been reported deceased, we might suspect we would also occasionally notice people showing up who we're certain weren't there before. I am one of the 27% of the people recently surveyed who reported having "seen dead people and animals alive again" (Quantum Jumps: An Extraordinary Science of Happiness and Prosperity, page 98). I remember hearing the news of Nelson Mandela's death when he was incarcerated many years ago, and again more recently. I also recall having heard news through the international news media of Jane Goodall's passing away, shortly after Dian Fossey died, which struck me as such a senseless double loss of great primate researchers in such mysterious rapid succession--yet I was thrilled to learn she is still alive and well this past year, so I was able to see her give a talk in the San Francisco bay area when she came through on a recent book tour. So if a person who we're fairly sure has died can be alive again, why can't a person we've never before heard of suddenly appear? There is a satisfying kind of logic to this phenomena, in the sense that just as one might suddenly find a lost item in an unexpected place, it's just as possible to find a new person in our lives just when we need them most.


(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Refilled Face Lotion
San Diego, California, USA

Oh! You’re not going to believe this—then again, you probably will, seeing this is what you do! My daily face lotion has been empty for a couple days so I start using another one. I made certain this time by shaking it and pumping it many many times. I left it on the bathroom counter being aware of my free refill last year. When i got out of the shower last night the bottle caught my eye. The colors on the container seemed a little more vibrant. I casually pick it up and pump it. You know how this ends! It instantly pours out like new one would, and I notice it’s heavier! Last time I got an additional 3 months of use, which is typically how long a new one lasts. Let’s see how long this one goes!

Note from Cynthia: Yes, I do believe it--and just love this type of reality shift in which a depleted product is refilled, as if it was either a brand new product. How wonderful that you've got a heavier container! That's great that you've gotten an additional three months of use the last time it instantly refilled, and how fun to see how long it goes this time!


Dr. George Fischbeck Died—Again!

I had something odd happen today, and I’d like to share it with you, in case you have any idea at all what it means. There was a very well known TV personality here in Southern California named Dr. George Fischbeck. He was very popular and did the weather on our local ABC affiliate here for years. Back around 1983 or so, I remember hearing that he had passed away. This memory is very clear to me, as I recall a conversation with my then fiancé, (we are no longer in contact, or I’d ask him if he remembers this) about how sad he was and that he really liked Dr. George, as he was known here. This memory is very clear! I even remember that we were in his car driving through his parent’s housing tract when we had this conversation, which I would guess was around 1982 or early 1983. I know it was before we got married and moved into our own place, which was in October of 83. It seems to me that Dr. George left the airwaves some time before his death and was no longer on the local news. At least this is how I’m remembering it. So imagine my shock this morning, as I’m putting on my make up, to hear on the news on the radio saying that Dr. George Fischbeck has passed away! What gives? I know I’m not confusing him with someone else, as he is/was very well known here. Are there such things as false memories? I have a memory from SOMEWHERE where Allan and I spoke of his passing. And after that conversation, I never saw Dr. George on the news again. Not through the end of the 80s, or into the 90s. If I had, I would have had all the same questions that I have today. And yet, below is a quote from today’s paper: “Fischbeck handled the weather chores at KABC until the early 1990s, then joined KCBS-TV in 1994 and spent a few years doing feature stories.” How did I miss him during the times he was supposed to be dead, yet was still doing the weather? I will probably never know. I think I’ve experienced this kind of thing before with celebrities, but not to this degree. I don’t know, though, maybe I’m crazy. Confused smile Just wanted to run this past you. Been reading on your web site today and there is some interesting stuff here. Some stories remind me of mine. Smile. What do you think? Thanks!

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for writing to tell me that you've just heard that Albuquerque and Los Angeles weatherman Dr. George Fischbeck has passed away--for the second time! I can understand how you would be feeling astounded to now have heard about his death on two separate occasions some thirty years apart. You've just experienced the 'alive again' effect of noticing that a shift in reality has occurred in which you've heard two trustworthy reports from reliable sources of someone's death. Dr. Fischbeck was not 'on my radar,' so this is the first time I've heard of his having passed away, but I have witnessed several other famous personalities be reported dead twice, and it's quite likely that other people also remember an alternate history in which he passed away in the early 1980's as you recall. The 'alive again' phenomena has been covered in past issues of the monthly RealityShifters ezine including:

Ray Columbus Still Alive, Though Reported Dead Twice
Wellington, New Zealand

I don’t recall news of Nelson Mandela dying earlier, but I am certain I have heard news of New Zealand singer Ray Columbus dying many times. My mother passed in 1994 and I recall talking to her about Columbus dying during her lifetime, after I supposedly heard it on the news. I’ve heard this news twice since in the last 21 years (each time with a surprised ‘I thought he was already dead’ reaction). I checked again tonight and Mr Columbus is still alive, but according to a 2013 report, he is terminally ill.

Note from Cynthia: I am intrigued when people notice numerous reputable reports of a particular individual dying more than once, only to be found still currently alive. I just checked on the current status of Ray Columbus, and see he was reported as terminally ill about a year ago, back in April 2014.

I Found My Lost Money!

All I can say is WOW, this works! (Comment on ) I have been unable to find a large sum of money I placed in a "safe" place about six months ago, despite searching through the drawer I placed it in several times over this period. Tried your hand dowsing method, opened the drawer once again, lifted an article, and there it was! I am absolutely stunned. Thank you so much Cynthia for this very useful tool.

Note from Cynthia: Thank you, Heather, for letting me know how well this worked for you! I’m really glad to hear you experienced such an immediate success!

Cracked Egg No Longer Cracked
Jo Peace

I may have (consciously) jumped this morning. I was preparing some hard boiled eggs for my house guests for breakfast. I put 3 eggs in the pan of cold water and proceeded to boil them on the cooker. After a while the water began to bubble away and I thought to myself "I must turn down the gas because I don't want the eggs to crack!" I guessed that my guests might want to take them away as part of their lunch package for the day, so they would want the shells still on. Anyway, as I looked into the pan I noticed that one egg was cracked already, from the initial rapid boiling, but the other two eggs still had intact shells. "Oh well", I thought, I can have the cracked one and they can have the other two. Shortly afterwards, the boiling time was up and the eggs were ready. I took the eggs and put them on the draining board to cool. I looked for the one that had a very visible crack right across it. I couldn't find it.. I carefully examined all 3 eggs- no sign of the crack. I was astonished as they all had intact shells. Was I imagining things? Seeing things? I am absolutely certain that one of the eggs got cracked during the boiling process. Then I remembered about you and parallel realities and 'jumping'. Well, I guess I might just have experienced another reality.

Note from Cynthia: Thank you so much for sharing your experience jumping from a reality in which one of the boiled eggs was so clearly cracked from the boiling process, to a reality in which all eggs came through the boiling with shells intact! Now that you mention it, this is something that's also happened to me, and I also recall wondering, "Wasn't one of these eggs cracked? Why can't I find which one it is?" and rolling them around and around and around, looking for what had just moments earlier been a really obviously broken egg!

Illuminated Cross Appeared on Ceiling
Lillian Walker

I'm excited to report last night as I prayed before going to sleep I asked God to let me experience something in the quantum shift reality and shortly after I finished praying I heard my lap top turn on and I opened my eyes and much to my surprise I saw a big cross illuminated on my ceiling! I couldn't believe my eyes, I thought wow that a amazing, and I told God He was so funny. I thought of taking a picture and decided not to and go back to sleep. I opened my eyes a few minutes later and the cross was gone—but I know I engaged with the other dimension and God revealed himself to me. AMAZING!

Note from Cynthia: This is very, very cool!

Missing Keys Reappeared in Unusual Places
Gurgaon, Haryana, India

I was going through your website, and I read some material related to Reality Shifts. There were interesting stories about keys lost and found, and things found when they were lost for some time. I have some interesting experiences in my life, but I am not sure what and how. I had a green suitcase gifted to me by my mother and it contained things which were important and sacred to me (not money). The keys were kept in a bag, the bag was stolen, and I felt very bad. After some time, we shifted house and moved to a new place—there on a shelf I found a key which looked like the lost key. I tried them and lo—my suitcase opened! I was happy. It so happened that we shifted house again in 2006 and moved to new place and I lost the key again. I searched but could not find. After some years, as I was on the roof full of scrap, my eyes fell on a corner and there were the keys again.

Note from Cynthia: Wow, Vikas, that is so cool! I love how the keys turned up in a surprising, unexpected place not once, but on two separate occasions!


(5) Questions and Answers

Quantum Jumps
My name is Michael, how are you? I came across you on youtube and want to get your book. I am highly spiritual and my third eye is open so I have lots of pyshic abilities. Also when I meditate almost near the sleep state I have come across parallel versions of my self, it's like the world I'm in is so real and sometimes communication is hard to remember from my other selves. I've been speaking about parallel universe/multiverse to my friends and mom. I just found out about the Mandela and The Berenstein Bear problem. I'm fascinated and would like to hear your thoughts. Talk soon,
— Michael

Hi, Michael!
Thanks so much for writing to me, and letting me know you found me through YouTube, and are interested in the subjects of parallel worlds, reality shifts, and quantum jumps. I think you'll enjoy exploring through past issues of RealityShifters, my free monthly ezine. This month's issue just came out and is posted at:

All previous issues are posted here--where you can subscribe if you like:
Some past issues delve into the "Alive Again" phenomenon, which is what's involved with the Mandela Effect, in which many people remembered Nelson Mandela having died while in prison, many years ago. Other issues cover the way people can often be seen before they actually arrive. Still others focus on teleportation, and avoiding collision with oncoming vehicles. Three of my books include numerous examples of this phenomenon:

Ascending Spiral:
Humanity’s Last Chance

by Bob Rich
Delightful Metaphysical Page-Turner

Ascending Spiral swept me up in the action of men fighting for their lives and freedom right from the start, transporting me between modern-day times in 2011, to 800 AD in the time of Vikings, and 18th century Ireland. This is a tale of the human spirit, and how it can feel to move from a state of discarnate consciousness from human life to human life. Rather than adopting a preachy tone, Ascending Spiral draws readers in to feel the rise and fall of emotions, as the lead characters encounter all manner of challenges. Throughout each story line, protagonist Pip Lipkin’s indomitable spirit shines through, facing life-and-death struggles as a free Irishman, and when taken as an Irish slave, transported from his homeland to New South Wales. While readers might hope that despite having suffered the worst horrors of mental and physical abuse of war, the Pip’s earlier incarnation would make completely heroic choices, he sometimes opts to torment others instead, which leads to reminders to him to choose more wisely next time at each life transition point. Ascending Spiral reads like a historical adventure novel for more than half the book, especially covering life in 18th century Ireland and England, and mid 19th century Australia. The different life threads are easy to follow, as they are neatly divided into their own separate books-within-a-book, with explanation provided as to how each subsequent life unfolds. At the beginning of Book 3, Ascending Spiral takes on a science fiction vibe, venturing into truly otherworldly vistas as it covers the life lessons of a newly hatched walking plant, and continuing the ongoing saga of drama between victims and heroes. Book 3 is also the beginning of some truly large leaps through time and space, with the experience of life as a space flower, some 10,000 years BC. Ascending Spiral’s journey through space and time returns us to present day in Book 4, where some of the seemingly loose ends woven throughout Ascending Spiral weave back together into a rewarding conclusion—though this is clearly a book that shows the weaving of story lines never truly ends. Ascending Spiral is a real page-turner for any reader, and will be especially rewarding for those intrigued with questions about why things happen the way they do, and how we are connected to one another.

The Power of the Heart

The Power of the Heart:
Finding Your True Purpose in Life

by Baptist de Pape
Uplifting Quotes, Exercises & Thoughts about Living from the Heart

Lawyer-turned-filmmaker, Baptist de Pape, shares uplifting quotes, exercises and thoughts gleaned from conversations with consciousness luminaries he interviewed for this book and his documentary film, "The Power of the Heart." There are deep thoughts and feelings contained in this deceptively small book, such that each chapter ending with meditative exercises has the power to transform readers to experience gratitude, forgiveness, compassion, and gradually trusting the process of feeling, thinking, and living from the heart. I love the way Baptist de Pape includes a short summary of why he set out to create a film documentary and book about the subject of finding peaceful calm through heart-centered awareness that comes through clearly when embracing present moment awareness in a state of silence. From a powerful initial epiphany, de Pape gained the courage to pursue a brand new calling to explore the heart's many powers, including: intuition, intention, gratitude, forgiveness, resilience and love. The Power of the Heart is written in three sections, beginning with the first part that introduces readers to paths to discovering the language, wisdom, and deep intelligence of the heart. The second section encourages readers to explore the internal awakening of exceptional intuitive wisdom and courage we can feel when learning to listen to our hearts, and the third part takes the reader through a review of how to re-engage with the world of relationships, work, family and friends in the world. I especially enjoy the Contemplations included at the end of each chapter, as these experiential meditations and exercises bring key ideas from the reading into meaningful activities that can show readers how it feels to activate the transformative, healing powers of the heart. These Contemplations are short to read, spanning just two pages, and simple to do, usually taking just a few minutes. Readers who savor the sensory delight of reading an actual book in hand will be thoroughly pleased with the look and feel of the hardcover edition of this book, with it's embossed jacket on the outside and gorgeous portraits of spiritual teachers including: Isabelle Allende, Maya Angelou, Deepak Chopra, Jane Goodall, Howard Martin, Rollin McCraty, Eckhart Tolle, Neale Donald Walsch, Marianne Williamson and Gary Zukav. I highly recommend "The Power of the Heart" to anyone who wonders whether they are living their most fulfilling life, or who wishes to discover just how good it can feel to live a life of purpose and meaning.
