Create Your Best Life!
Revise the Past

Cynthia & FredCynthia Sue Larson , Filmmaker Betsy Chasse, and Dr. Fred Alan Wolf in San Francisco at a special showing of What the Bleep Do We Know?!

    "This respite from the space-time continuum allows us to move backward in time and revisit past 'errors.' It enables us to forgive ourselves and others because we see that the other is nothing more than the self."
    - Fred Alan Wolf, in his forthcoming book, The Yoga of Time Travel

I just saw the inspirational film, What the Bleep Do We Know?! in San Francisco, as I'd begun reading an advance copy of Fred Alan Wolf's excellent new book, "The Yoga of Time Travel." Absorbing all of this with some thrilling time-related reality shift stories I've recently been receiving has gotten me thinking about retroactive reality shifting. By retroactive reality shifting, I mean the kind of shifts in reality one notices that bring about changes in the past based on our thoughts right now. For example, one reader told me about an experience in which a missing object suddenly reappeared where it belonged, seconds after she mentally went back across time and influenced herself to remember to put it in the correct place to begin with, a few days earlier. I've also had experiences of communicating with my past and future self which have completely changed my life.

Usually when we intend to shift reality, such as wishing to manifest a good parking space, we focus our attention and intention on expecting to effect changes across space some time in the future. We know it is not necessary to sit on top of the car currently occupying the space we wish to take, nor do we need to be all that close to it... we just need to make sure our expectation that we will soon have an excellent parking spot is clearly known by the universe. We hope our intentions will take effect sometime in the not-too-distant future, giving little thought to how we can just as easily revise the past.

I've noticed my thoughts changing the past on a few different occasions, and each time been amazed by how easily reality shifts across both time and space. The first time I noticed this effect, I was traveling in England, after having just read an article in the Institute of Noetic Sciences publication about Henry P. Stapp's work with retroactive causality. In this study, participants were able to affect sealed envelopes containing radioactive particles. They successfully altered the decay rates which had already occurred. After reading this most provocative article, I wondered what kinds of retroactive reality shifts might be possible, and how I would be able to tell when I found one. I was startled to find a cassette tape of the Greatest Hits from the year I was born that featured Shane Fenton and the Fentones singing their hit song from that year, "Cindy's Birthday." I'd never heard any such song before, and certainly would have noted if there was a song celebrating my birthday from the very year I was born. What better kind of proof could I have asked for that retroactive reality shifts exist? As I was pondering this, I asked the universe to show me that this was no mere coincidence... to demonstrate how I could in fact see real-time responses to my questions. As I walked past books placed outside an English book shop, I recognized the names of two people who were very dear to me in the titles of some old books... books I had never heard of, but their presence at precisely that moment indicated to me that retroactive reality shifting is very real indeed!

Over the years I have since noted that it seems easiest for me to bring about retroactive reality shifts when I am not 100% certain that these things did not exist before. There is a slim chance that there really might have been a song celebrating my birthday that was a hit song on the year I was born... and perhaps it was a hit in England, but not the United States, so I just never noticed it. Most of us have moments of doubt about these kinds of synchronicities and coincidences... and it is in these very moments of open-ended unfocused thought that we gain the ability to deselect one reality and select another across time and space.

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Jennifer Shepherd
Stockton, New Jersey

I had an amazing experience about two years ago in Easton, Pennsylvania. My friend and I had stopped at a traffic light next to a bike store while taking a road trip, when I saw the strangest thing. A young man came out of the bike shop wearing brightly colored clothing, and got into his car.

As we sat at the light, I turned my head to chat with my companion. A moment later, I turned around, and THE EXACT SAME SCENE played itself out. The SAME young man, dressed the same way, came out of the store and got into his car in exactly the same way!

Not enough time had elapsed between these moments for the man in question to have been able to get back out of the car, return to the store, and then come back out of the store. The passage of time between these moments (of me seeing him come out of the store once, then again) was not more than a few seconds.

This is just one experience I've had where I seem to have seen a "glitch" in the Matrix! My own "action replay," or perhaps a reality shift, or perhaps stepping out of time. What's interesting is that it happened when I wasn't in a particularly meditational state of mind, just hanging out, listening to music on our road trip.

I am a regular monthly subscriber to your Reality Shifters e-newsletter. After reading your article on Listening to the Universe, and especially how certain songs have a special meaning to people, I remembered a really neat and funny experience from a couple years ago. I am a fan of the rock group U2. About four years ago, I saw there were sound clips of songs from their soon to be released album (All That You Can't Leave Behind) on their web site. I had never heard any of these songs before, and was anxious to download them. I noticed a friend of mine on instant messenger and started talking to him while waiting for the download. We talked about his lack of time, as he was in the process of getting a master's degree. I told him he should take time for himself, and he replied, "There will be time for that later." My friend also gave me a small pep-talk about returning to college and finishing my degree. I was in the throes of a pitty party, talking about getting my life in order, but giving every excuse as to why I couldn't go to college at this time in my life. My friend told me I could do anything I set my mind to (mind over matter), and not to throw in the towel so easily.

Computers being what they were four years ago, I got disconnected from the internet when the download had finished. Imagine my shock and surprise when I heard Bono's voice coming through my speakers, "...You've got to get yourself together (You've got stuck in a moment, and ya can't get out of it)... Don't say that later will be better..." I almost fainted. I felt that he was speaking to both me and my friend. It was so eerie, since I had never heard the song before. I got back online and told my friend, "I think I had a psychic connection with U2!" He thought I was nuts.

And guess what? I wound up "getting myself together," and will be graduating from college in December of this year. I love to tell people that my "psychic connection with Bono" prompted me to get my life in order. But it goes to show you how people take what they need out of the universe if they open themselves up to it.

Johannesburg, South Africa

Thank you for the wonderful article, "Listen to the Universe." I have been an avid follower of you and your website. I have had several of my own reality shifts and perfect synchronicity moments. This article just brought it home to me.

Just yesterday I had two phenomenal synchronistic moments/shifts. The whole time that I was away on a business trip, I noticed there was a quiet little inner voice telling me that everything was perfectly synchronisitic. I finished my work early, and thought I would head on over to the airport and look into catching an earlier flight home. On arrival I was able to change my flight and check in for an earlier flight 15 minutes before it left... which is generally unheard of at most good airports unless you are the president. On arriving home, I kept the same still voice going in my head because my arrival time coincided with rush hour traffic, which would have meant an hours journey home instead of a half hour. Despite traffic crawling bumper to bumper, I still made the trip home in a half hour.

Now here's the great part: when I arrived home, I heard on the news that all flights out of the city I had just left had been cancelled due to bad weather. If I had not made that flight out I would have even missed the one I had been scheduled for in the first place! The point of all this is that you do create your own shifts, and the universe is a perfect mirror to that. So here's to perfect synchronicity and reality shifts.

Miami, Florida

I went to an electronic music concert called ULTRA recently when something truly extraordinary occurred. I haven't missed any of these concerts over the past six years. I am a DJ myself, and I love the energy from the surrounding environment at ULTRA.

At this one particular concert, I was in a tent listening to one of my favorite DJ's when all of the sudden time stops -- I slowly turned like in a movie, and it seemed that with all the energy of 60,000 people that we had all shifted ourseleves to another frequency -- or planet !

Time caught up and started up, and I saw everyone was running around -- and we all seemed to know what we were thinking -- so our group of about 10 or so people realized this all at once and began to move to what felt like a safer place, since the time stopping had made us all feel very uneasy. We walked over to a kind of tree I love, and people ran up to it. As they approached the tree, long tree vines started to swing on them and then they disappeared out of thin air! At this point, we weren't sure what type of energy or state of frequency we had gotten ourselves into.

We ran back to the same tent where this first started and we all held hands (we know how to share/transfer energy between us), and began to go into good energy swapping. All of the sudden, an old man came out of nowhere... standing apart from everyone because he was walking in such slow motion while everyone around was going as if it was a video tape on fast forwarding, When he finally reached us, he put his hands on our big mound of energetic hands and gave us such an energy rush that it blew the group apart like an energy surge. We looked around at each other and the guy is in the middle. He turned around and his shirt said "don't lose the magic " We all started to cry happy tears -- and ever since this experience, the shifts have been stronger. Unfortunately my friends aren't ready for that path because only four of us really knew what happened... and the five of us were the ones who weren't using any kind of hallucinogens!

(5) Reality Shifters Q & A

Q: Cynthia - I really enjoy your newsletter and have applied a lot of your stories and books I buy into my life which have helped in shifting a lot of my creations for the better. But, I have a question for you and I have trouble finding the answer in books and can't calm down enough to go "within", so, I'm hoping you'd kindly forward your opinion/help as soon as possible.

How does one neutralize/erradicate hours of negative, seething anger so as not to let it create situations in the near future?

Yesterday I had to quit my job due to an impossible and brutal boss. At four I came home and thought, stewed, hated, till 12:30 in the morning. Although I tried to read and/or watch the telly, I still let my emotions of negativity take over and the more I tried to quit and refocus and convince myself that I can create a better job, the more I seethed and drowned in anger. My stomach was a mess - and still is. It's 2:30pm now and so that makes it almost twelve hours of anger. How, HOW do I replace the negative energy so as not to be blasted by/with it later? Please help. Thanks so much.

- Anna

A: I know how frustrating it must feel to see great jobs ruined by horrible people... and I know that deep down, there are some issues revolving around self-worth and self-esteem that you can work to clear. These issues show up in your second and third chakras, so simply breathe DEEPLY down as far as you can (so your tummy goes up and down with each breath) as you visualize yourself RELEASING all the old garbage from these negative relationships and breathing in fresh, pure inspiration and love. This kind of breathing releases the negative energies, and you can speed it up the emotional clearing by rubbing those chakras (just under your ribs & just under your belly button) in circles that are about 3" across.

Tell yourself, "I am now releasing all negativity" as you visualize that dark energy slipping down, down, down to the center of the earth. As that dark stuff goes away, feel yourself connected to divine energy through your crown chakra, and sense that white golden light coming down to fill you with love and wonderful gifts from the universe. Ask the universe, "How good can it get?" and really mean it... and let the universe show you.

If you've got a copy of my "Aura Healing Meditations" CD in your house, you can put that on with the intention that you will be transforming anger into resolve and renewed commitment to your prosperous future... and get immediate relief.

You can also get a pad and pencil and write down all the things you are MOST angry about... realizing that these things are areas you can now commit to yourself to not get yourself into again.

Until we can schedule a session to get deeper into the whys of it for you, this will definitely turn things around for the better!

Congratulations again for doing exactly the right thing for you, and for taking good care of yourself. You really deserve only the very best!

Vibrational Medicine

Vibrational Medicine
The #1 Handbook of Subtle Energy Therapies

by Richard Gerber, M.D.

The Essential Reference Book for Subtle Energy Healing

VIBRATIONAL MEDICINE is a classic reference book for anyone seeking a comprehensive overview of the field of energy medicine. Weighty in both content and physical heft, it manages to be quite the page-turner, by virtue of maintaining effervescent enthusiasm for the subject throughout. While some books discuss one or two relatively narrow aspects of energy medicine, VIBRATIONAL MEDICINE covers a vast assortment of energy healing methodologies. What I love most about VIBRATIONAL MEDICINE is the way so many experimental details are included for the scientific studies it cites. Its easy to gain a big picture overview of how scientific research is steadily progressing in the field of subtle energies. I also love the way that VIBRATIONAL MEDICINE strikes an easy balance between sharing ancient esoteric spiritual teachings, newer vibrational therapies, and scientific research. Some of the most recent developments in vibrational medicine, such as homeopathy, flower essences, and sound healing have deep roots in the past, at the same time as they offer us a welcome array of new options on the road to better health. Readers who are intrigued and open-minded to studying all these areas will find this book an absolute must-read. VIBRATIONAL MEDICINE introduces some key concepts early on that weave their way throughout the rest of the book, such as the principle of resonance. Resonance has been associated with telepathy between individuals, and also with bringing about healing for individuals who have energy imbalances. There are profound benefits to be gained from correctly assessing what kind of frequency will bring about optimal healing, and VIBRATIONAL MEDICINE provides all the juicy details! I highly recommend VIBRATIONAL MEDICINE to anyone interested in a more complete understanding of the energies related to optimal health.
