How Good Can it Get?

“Always aim at complete harmony
of thought and word and deed.
Always aim at purifying your thoughts
and everything will be well. ”
– Mahatma Gandhi
When we still haven't found what we're looking for, we keep searching for
happiness by pursuing money, food, or new acquisitions—yet these
entertainments rarely fulfill us. Real satisfaction is possible when
integrating our body, mind, and senses to re-establish the intrinsic inner
balance and ecstatic harmony we were born with.
Ironically, we humans are at risk for getting knocked out of harmonious
balance if something 'pushes our buttons,' or we feel stressed. Times of
chaos and rapid change can feel especially stressful, when we might not
have the resources or inner calm to remind ourselves to stay focused on
staying in harmonious flow. When we can manage to retain harmony between
our thoughts, feelings, and actions, such turbulent times can seem more
Cynthia Sue Larson sparring medal
One of my most memorable times of living in harmony at a time when I was
feeling especially challenged happened a few years back when I was
competing at a local martial arts tournament. I'd registered to
participate in six divisions that day, and I'd completed my sword and staff
forms, the empty hands form, the techniques, and the breaking, and all that
was left was sparring. I sat down in the designated ring for my group's
sparring matches, and glanced around to see that surprisingly, I was the
only one there. I wondered why I was all alone in the ring, when all of a
sudden it came to me—the other second degree black belts had
gone to change out of their (very hot) special General's uniforms, into the
cooler, more comfortable martial art uniform jackets for sparring. While
I'd remembered to bring my martial arts sparring protective gear that
included a bite guard, shin guards, and head protector—I'd
forgotten to bring a change of jacket to wear specifically for sparring. I
realized I'd be the only one who was “over-dressed,”
wearing a hotter, heavier jacket than necessary for sparring. At the
moment this occurred to me, I felt uncomfortably hot, even though I was
sitting down and resting. I knew if this pattern continued, I was at risk
for fainting or injuring myself when the sparring started, not to mention
I'd probably not receive a medal for this division. I was amazed at how
much hotter I was getting, just from thinking about this
situation—when I realized thinking was making me feel more
stressed—so this might be the perfect moment to calm my mind,
heart, and body with meditation and breathing exercises.
I brought my attention to my heart rate, which seemed fast, and my
breathing, which also seemed a bit fast—and almost immediately,
I felt much more relaxed and cooler. I noted with relief that my heart
rate and breathing were stabilizing at much more enjoyable levels. When I
felt a sense of harmonious flow, I realized I'd attained a beautiful state
of inner harmonious alignment that meant I'd have no problems sparring
while wearing something hotter and heavier than everyone else was wearing.
And when all participants returned to the ring, and sparring began, I did
just fine. And I looked elegant in my fancy uniform when receiving my
third place sparring medal that year!
We can practice living in harmony, starting with quiet, relaxed moments
when it's easy to meditate, and working up to bringing this practice into
those inevitable surprising times when we are feeling especially stressed.
All the good work we do to practice meditations involving mental stillness
and slow breathing can really pay off beautifully. Melinda Iverson Inn and
I are honored to share our Peace and Tranquility Blessing with you,
to help facilitate living in a more harmonious state.

in the age of AI
7 Apr 2023
Humanity has the opportunity–and the
responsibility–to lead the way in the best possible future with
Artificial Intelligence. How can we envision co-existing harmoniously with
Artificial Intelligence (AI) moving into almost every area of our lives?
Artificial Intelligence has become one of the hottest topics recently, with
AI systems passing medical and legal qualification exams, winning debates,
and assisting people in ever-expanding fields and ways. Amidst this
rapid expansion of AI arise fears that some humans may lose jobs, and new
types of risks and problems may soon arise faster than people can resolve
them. Many experts in the field of artificial general intelligence (AGI)
have been warning us about dangers of moving forward with increasingly
sophisticated and clever systems, without ensuring these systems have
properly addressed potential risks. One of the acknowledged ways to
address potential problems with artificial general intelligence systems is
with something called AGI alignment. This concept of alignment can
provide a kind of assurance that highest level positive intentionality is
driving the actions of AGI systems. The rapid advances in AGI technology
without adequate guidance assuring alignment is seen as unsurprising to
those who also notice a similar lack of alignment in our social and
government and corporate organizations. Without shared intentions
and attention being placed on ethics, alignment, respect, and risk
assessment, it’s no small wonder so many AI experts are now
voicing such a concerns. One way to stay calm when things seem chaotic is
to stay focused on becoming peace, love, joy, and prosperity we wish to see
in the world. Our thoughts and feeling affect have a far more
wide-sweeping affect than most of us realize, which can profoundly improve
the lives and well-being of people across great distances, in a kind of
ripple effect. This past month, I received a question via email:
“Hi Cynthia! You have mentioned previously your other life
experience with only one ‘full’ human being remaining
in the AI world. In your valued and much appreciated insight, what
do you feel and think about: sharing information/anything in the Metaverse
platforms of Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp etc? By sharing in Metaverse/AI,
are we not feeding the belly of the AI helping it to grow, expand and take
over the humans and human capabilities? Are we helping AI to take over just
by creating and sharing all this info/images using the Metaverse platforms?
OR. Could it be simply a case of by changing the perception
of ‘fear of AI’/’fear of AI dominated
future’ and re-establishing the (subconscious) beliefs and
boundaries in some way, it then becomes OK to share transformational
info/images using Metaverse? Your input is greatly appreciated and much
valued and maybe share with others in a little YouTube clip to assist us
all? Thank you dear Cynthia and wishing you a beautiful day! With Love,
Gratitude and Heart-full of Blessings, Tuula” https://youtu.be/_rE12e8x5qI
Changed Totem Pole in Wyandotte
Riverview, Michigan, USA
I wanted to share what I consider an interesting Mandela
Effect. I live in an area that was previously settled by native Americans,
and the town just north of me (Wyandotte) has a totem pole in their
downtown area. I didn't grow up here, but I've always thought it was neat,
and I've spent a lot of time looking at it over the past several years. I
paid a lot of attention to the shape of it because it has a part that
sticks out and upward. I haven't seen that on other totem poles. I'm
around it quite often, and I always look at it when I'm nearby, but
recently, the totem changed! I remember it having a rounded top, but now,
there is a big turtle on top, perpendicular to the pole. So the turtle's
head and legs are poking out very obviously, in addition to the shell of
course. It's also bright green and really stands out. I've never heard of
anyone adding on to an existing totem pole, but I tried to find something
in our local paper or the city's website to see if there was a reason for
this turtle, and it seems the turtle was always there since it was carved
(over 50 yrs ago)! Also, on google, I found a plaque that mentions it
having a turtle, although I don't believe I've read the plaque in person.
Anyway, I just thought it was neat! I don't know an exact date, but I'm
sure it wasn't there on Valentine's day, and it was there by March 4th
(because I remember telling my friend about it the day after her birthday).
I went to a bakery nearby sometime in between those dates, and that's when
I first noticed it. It's very prominent! As far as my reaction to it, I
initially thought it was odd that it was there, particularly the way it was
angled, but as time goes on, I'm growing to like it more. Almost like it's
watching over us. I believe that some Native Americans have a legend about
the world itself being on a turtle's back, so to me, that seems supportive.
I also like the shell aspect of turtles because that feels protective, but
also sort of self sufficient. A turtle doesn't need anyone else's help
because he can go within! Also, growing up on a river, I always loved that
turtles seemed at home both on land and in the water. I definitely view
them in a positive light, so I like this change, although I'm perplexed by
Note from Cynthia: Wow, this is truly amazing with regard to the
changed totem pole in Wyandotte! When I look at photos of the
Wyandotte totem pole, I'm first impressed by the turtle so prominently
featured at the top—and it really is rather different than the
rest of the totem pole! Apparently, this pole was carved in 1971
out of western red cedar by Gordon Watkins of Aurora, Oregon.
Watkins apparently followed the art form originated by the Indians of the
Pacific Northwest. But the remarkable aspect of your experience is
that you only recently noticed the turtle at the top, which is such a
prominent feature that it seems nearly impossible to miss, since it's at
the very top of the pole, like an angel or star placed atop a Christmas
tree--it was created to be noticed and stand out! Thanks so much for
sharing what turtles mean to you. I like turtles, too, and have
heard of the story of the world being supported by a turtle--which some
people say came about because when some turtles come out of the soil in the
springtime, it looks like they are carrying earth and plants on their
Riverview, Michigan, USA
I feel like I've been having an unusual amount of
synchronicities and Mandela Effects recently, usually positive or neutral.
Honestly there are too many to list, but I just had the oddest thing
happen. Not a Mandela Effect, but definitely weird! I'm in my apartment
with my husband and cat. It's a very quiet night here, no neighbor noise
to speak of, but I went in my walk-in closet to change, prior to bed.
After a few minutes, I heard my husband (I thought) in the bedroom speaking
to our cat, and she was responding in her usual manner. She's very vocal!
I wasn't listening too intently because it was obvious he was speaking to
her and not me, and then I heard him say "Are you talking to me?" I came
out of the closet, and found he wasn't even in the bedroom, but halfway
down the hall. He apparently had been in his bathroom down the hall, and he
heard me whispering to him. He said I sounded scared, and he was worried I
needed help. But I didn't say anything! And neither did he, prior to the
"Are you talking to me?" Also, we both thought the cat was with the other
one of us. Who knows where she actually was, because she can't tell us, but
once we found each other, she was behaving very strangely. I don't know
what to think of this, particularly because he's positive I called him by
his name. Have you heard of anything like this? It seems very improbable
that we would both hear things that aren't being said at the same time! I
just can't think of an explanation, particularly with it being so quiet
here. Thank you for reading, and if you get a moment, I would love to hear
your thoughts on this!
Note from Cynthia: Thank you so much for writing to me sharing
this recent odd event hearing your husband inthe bedroom, speakign to your
cat, and you could also hear that she was responding. That's so
interesting that you then heard your husband ask if you were talking to
him--which was the point where you saw that he wasn't even where you heard
him (in the bedroom) but rather somewhere else entirely! And then when you
found the cat--who was not where either of you thought--she was behaving
strangely. Yes, I have heard of such things, though typically the
most common varieties of this experience involve one person hearing the
other, who denies having said what was heard. Your experience is
super interesting to me, since you and your husband both had such an
experience--and at the same time. As far as explanations as to what
happened, this is indeed a classic reality shift, which I write about in my
book, "Reality Shifts." There are many possible causes, which I've
written about in my books, Reality Shifts and Quantum Jumps.
Loose glasses fit perfectly now
Los Angeles, California, USA
This just happened today and I'm very puzzled over it.
I have a pair of distance glasses that were very loose, so loose they would
almost fall off my face if I was wearing a mask. It was super annoying, and
I had decided to just get new frames to solve the issue. When I'm working,
I wear reading glasses. This morning, I got up from the computer and put on
my distance glasses to do something and immediately realized they had been
tightened. They now fit perfectly on my face and don't slip at all.
Uh— I didn't do it. My husband didn't do it. I even checked to
make sure I wasn't somehow wearing his glasses, but that clearly wasn't the
case. In fact, when I told him about it later, he tried them on and said
they fit him perfectly too. Are there elves living in my apartment
that fix glasses? I am so weirded out by this, Cynthia. However, I did
remember to pause and say thank you for this unexpected gift. It's getting
pretty good from what I can tell! I indeed had been thinking that I needed
new glasses a few days before this happened, and that was uppermost in my
mind also. It feels like there has been an increase in some sort of
telepathy lately, and this was part of it.
Note from Cynthia: Wow! What an amazing and wonderful experience
to find your distance glasses suddenly began fitting you perfectly, after
having been so loose for so long. It’s interesting that
you read the question about elves, since there is a long history of
awareness by people around the world on all continents, reporting the
presence of this kind of activity attributed to elves and little
people. If we consider the possibility that for whatever reason,
sometimes our thoughts and feelings are heard by others in our
surroundings, then this sort of mysterious adjustment of your glasses fits
well into the pattern, noticed by people for thousands of years that such
things sometimes occur. I am open to considering all possible
exclamations related to mind matter interaction. For those of us
who are open to receiving assistance from garden and house elves, it is
possible to sometimes experience some of the most delightful Reality
Shifts! I recently wrote about my experience, finding a tiny carpet
colored screw, just where I was hoping it might appear, where it had not
been before, and this might just be the work of house elves.
Company of wolves
Los Angeles, California, USA
I just finished reading the March newsletter and wanted to
comment on the "lion shall lay down with the lamb" story that was in it.
There was a movie that came out in 1984 called "The Company of Wolves"
directed by Neil Jordan that had this line spoken in it. I remember it
clearly. There is a scene where a priest is giving a sermon and he reads
that passage, saying "and the lion shall lay down with the lamb". The
irony is, this movie is about werewolves! I want to try and find the movie
and watch it again to see if this line has now changed. I'll report back
after I do and tell you what I find. In the meantime, here's a still photo
from the movie. I find the wolves funny now.
Note from Cynthia: What a treasure of a find you have with that
movie, "The Company of Wolves," with the line you remember from that epic
Mandela Effected Bible passage. I'd love to know what you find out,
when you get a chance to watch it again! There definitely are telepathic
aspects to reality shifts that most people experience, from what I've seen
over the past 25 years of sharing these first-hand reports each month.
Physical reality absolutely responds to our thoughts and feelings, with
most noticeable such effects when we are most powered by emotion--similar
to what Dr. Bernard Beitman scientifically surmised in his synchronicity
research that he spoke to me about in this recent podcast interview:
Meaningful Coincidences with Bernard Beitman
Wolf in Bible
Roswell, Georgia, USA
I have asked five people now, including my extremely
knowledgeable Bible study teacher, and they never remembered the wolf lying
down with the lamb! I am visiting my dad in Nashville, and I found two
Bibles. One copyright in the 1920s, and the other in the 1960s, and they
both say wolf—I am blown away!
Note from Cynthia: Wow—this is so truly amazing, when
you see the very Bibles you grew up with worded so differently than so many
of us remember. Thank you for letting me know you heard from your bible
study teacher, and the five people you asked don't recall anything about a
wolf lying down with the lamb!
My doctor's and nurse's faces changed
Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA
Something very odd happened. I went to see the doctor
yesterday. The nurse calls me and when I look at her, it was her but her
face was slightly different. The same thing with the doctor! The
nurse’s face was narrower, the eyes not as big. The doctors lips
were narrower and her eyes, usually very big not so much. I wish I could
have taken photos but that would have been very odd. The faces were
different from the last time I had seen them which was two weeks previous.
The odd thing with the doctor is that the face kept changing slightly as we
were talking. I had a hard time concentrating on what she was saying. This
did not happen with the nurse. The other staff looked just like
usual. I had no particular thoughts except getting my blood work
results. The nurse’s face was a complete shock and the only
thing I could think to tell her was asking how was the baby doing.
When the doctor came in it was a WOW! I made sure to check the
surroundings to see if anything such as furniture, pictures, etc had
changed. But, everything looked the same. What happened there?!
This is something I will never forget. I thought about maybe jumping a
timeline, but everybody else’s faces remained the same.
Unsettling indeed, particularly because it was so unexpected.
Note from Cynthia: This is such a humdinger of a reality shift,
since it seems you saw this doctor and nurse within a short enough time
span that such huge differences were pronounced and unmistakable. I
can empathize with how it must have been difficult to concentrate and focus
on what they were saying to you when their appearances had changed so
much. And nobody popped out from behind a curtain with a camera,
saying, "You're on candid camera!" As far as what
happened—this is the kind of thing I've occasionally received
reports of over the past 25 years. It seems that such changes in
people can and do sometimes occur, and they are almost always rather
startling. What's really interesting about your experience is that
your doctor's face kept changing even while you were talking with her.
That is truly disconcerting. It's very interesting that nothing
else seemed to have changed.
Helping weather in Berlin and neighborhood
Just a little story for you. :-) Quite a while ago, you
talked about it in one of your videos on your Youtube channel (I think in
conversation with Michael Sandler, who is such a nice guy) that the trees
around you attract water via energy spirals. Well, our Berlin trees had
already suffered a lot in the last decade. Berlin is a very green city, we
have big lakes and forrest and lots of street trees. The last four years
in particular have taken a toll on our street trees. Anyway, I walked the
streets and remembered your energy spirals. So, I said to myself and
the universe, “Wouldn't it be great if all of our trees
remembered the ability to draw their water when needed. How good can it get
for all of us and the planet?!” Guess what? We had the first
winter in a long time with a lot of rain. We even had more snow than in
the past. Instead of two days shortly before Christmas and then the
farewell snow-day in March, it rained, snowed and hailed ice again and
again. A wet winter. What a fantastic information from
you—thank you so much! Yet another story about >>How good can
it get?<<. We have a few run-down blocks in our neighborhood. The windows
in particular are old, cheap glass and the wooden frames are chipping. A
very drafty affair and even then people heat out the window. The tenants
often don't have the money to insulate from the inside or at least to paint
over them themselves before the frame starts to mold through. One evening I
was walking through one of these complexes and as I left I thought:
>>Wouldn't it be great if the rental company offered tenants a repair at a
discounted rate so that they could choose whether or not to participate in
a renewal. How good could it be for them? I still haven't gotten used to
the miracle, but the next day I walked along this block and the first frame
shone in the sun. Freshly painted. Now that's hardly doable overnight, and
I realize I must have switched universes. I looked at the other windows,
and over two-thirds of the window frames had been repaired or painted. The
entire back of the block suddenly had plastic frames throughout with very
good window glass. I love your How good can it get!
Note from Cynthia: Oh, WOW! This is such amazing good
news you have! Thank you so much for sharing with me the
heart-warmingly good news that your beautiful love and positive energy and
good intentions for the trees and plants of Berlin preceded so much rain
and snow, with such a wet winter! I love it! We've been
similarly blessed with snow and rain in California, after some years of
extreme drought, and hopefully there may be some ways to help restore the
groundwater, which had been depleted. I'm so grateful that you feel
so connected with your local trees and plants, and that you can see the
positive beneficial impacts in Berlin, and in your neighborhood!
this powerful story and conclusion! And it’s in line with
what seems to be arising for starseeds all over the planet at the moment:
power dynamics (specifically control, power-over, secrecy or cult-like
behaviours, and so on). Thank you for sharing another—an
example in higher ed. I’m so glad you had the positive results
at the time as we all know how negative such experiences can be. Go,
Thanks so much for writing with such kind words. I love your
observation that my experience with the secrecy of that university
administrative department indeed has much in common with the way people
(especially starseeds) are now challenging some of the hypocrisy that has
seemingly become endemic almost everywhere. I treasure my
experience that ended in a classroom of light-hearted laughter, and a
surprise grade of "A" for a seemingly failed project. I feel this
experience might provide a positive template for helping people rise above
the emotional drama and create better, life-positive systems based in
honesty, integrity, and love. How good can social interactions and
lots of love and blessings,
I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed the
lucid dreaming interview with Wendy! Yes, I'll keep doing
interviews whenever I get the chance!
lots of love and thanks and blessings,
I didn't believe it at first, but something happened to me this past few
months. There are changes in my messages. The watermark of the affirmation
video that I am watching for a year also changes. There are things that
vanish and appear when I turn my head. Even time travel for 3 minutes in
the past happened in front of my eyes. This week I went to the house of my
friend here in the Philippines. I noticed something different in their
neighbor's houses. The structure was changed. After that, I traveled back
going home, and as I entered the gate of our village, the houses seem
different. And there is an unfamiliar street in the right side. The
houses seem different, so I thought that I went to a wrong village, because
I had slept inside the bus. I turned my head, and I saw the name and the
number of the village, and it was the same as our village! So I realized
that I traveled to a different reality. The crazy part is the street that
appeared from nowhere. It's impossible to demolish and build it in just a
few hours. I don't know why, but I wasn't shocked of that incident,
instead I am grateful that I learned about parallel reality and quantum
jumps. If The Source or Creator gave me the opportunity to jump into my
past to have a better future for everyone in my waking life while working
my path through ascension.
Wow, thank you so very much for sharing your experiences noticing
differences in the structure of your neighbor's houses, and an unfamiliar
street on the right side when you went home--to the point it seemed perhaps
you'd somehow gone to the wrong village. These kinds of changes to streets
and neighborhoods have been noticed and shared with people around the world
over the past 25 years on the realityshifters site, in the "your stories"
section, and it really is amazing the kinds of differences people notice.
