How Good Can it Get?
Feel How Good It Has Been

Cynthia Sue LarsonCynthia Sue Larson's senior photo

"It's not easy being grateful all the time. But it's when you feel least thankful that you are most in need of what gratitude can give you."
-- Oprah Winfrey

One of the best known methods for instantly changing our lives for the better has to do with taking time to feel gratitude and appreciation for all that has gone so well for us in the past. Gratitude journals have become well-known, thanks to popularization by television self-help gurus such as Oprah Winfrey and Wayne Dyer... yet even in the midst of this recognition for the power of our mindset regarding our past, few of us realize that what we are actually doing when we keep gratitude journals is that we are actually changing our past.

I documented some of my own experiences with changing the past along with a summary of current research in the field in a paper I presented at a conference last year, Retrocausal Reality Shifting: Adventures in the Fine Art of Changing the Past. Retrocausality encourages us to redefine our sphere of influence beyond simply making changes now and in the future. As I state in this paper,

We may begin to hold as much hope for a positive history as we do for a positive future, knowing we are capable of influencing both.

I consider my gratitude journal to be a "How Good It Has Been" book... a means to acknowledge in written word and sometimes illustration the essence of all that I find most energizing, relaxing, and worthwhile to be aware of. Such memories inevitably conspire to remind me of times of great joy and peace and balance in my life. Looking back at what I most appreciate transforms my perspective about the past to one of feeling abundant and happy about some of the times I consider to have been the most upsetting and challenging. I am finding that even the slightest such change in my viewpoint makes a world of difference in my prosperity right here, right now.

When we see a parking space open up when we need one, when a cancerous tumor goes away, when someone calls who we haven't heard from in years but were just thinking of... we have engaged a future end point in a way that has influenced the past. Our intentions act as targets for the future we wish to invoke, and this desired future immediately begins working on changing both our present and our past.

Wishing you all the best that life and love have offered,

Time Travel Could be Possible... In the Future
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
by Roger Highfield
8 August 2007
It may take more than a nuclear-powered De Lorean or a spinning police box, but time travel could actually be a possibility for future generations, according to an eminent professor of physics, Amos Ori, of the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology.

Time Shift... A True Story

Kay Describes a stunning experience in which her son dove head-first from his crib too far away for her to catch him, yet she managed to move as if in slow motion, yet instantly, to catch him before he had a terrible fall.

Whats Done is Done... Or is it?
New Scientist
by Patrick Barry
28 September 2006
Researchers are on the verge of experiments that will finally hold retrocausality's feet to the fire by attempting to send a signal to the past. What's more, they need not invoke black holes, wormholes, extra dimensions or other exotic implements of time travel. It should all be doable with the help of a state-of-the-art optics workbench and the bizarre yet familiar tricks of quantum particles.

The Secret

Reality Shifting Films
What do movies and TV shows like Deja Vu, The Secret, The Jacket, What the Bleep Do We Know, Just Like Heaven, Indigo, Tru Calling, The Matrix, Frequency, Wonderfalls, Dark City, Sliders, The Lathe of Heaven, Sliding Doors and Passion of Mind have in common? These films feature the reality shift phenomenon in their plots. I find it especially refreshing to see films that describe reality shifts close to the way I've experienced them myself, and I am grateful that reality shifts are being featured more often than ever in film!

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Astounding Results with Love
Stratford, Connecticut

I am learning that reality shifts do come when I am in a loving place. When I say loving, I don't mean that I am completely free from sadness sometimes... everyone has sadness at times... passing of a loved one or pet, watching a sad story on the news, loved ones moving away, or breaking up with a lover... but I have learned that the difference lies in not being hateful or allowing negativity to wash over me. I am not as boiling angry with hateful resentments like I used to be. I used to be very vengeful at times and I learned that you are so right... extreme anger and "I wish so-and-so would fall flat on their face after what they did to me" or "I wish what I am experiencing would happen to someone else" only attracted further anger, further frustration, more resentment, and more jealousy, and quite frankly, physical sickness into my life. Not to mention further experiences of outcomes seeming to go against me. Now, if someone or something makes me angry, I really try to stop....and take a deep breath... even if it hurts a little... and just say "I am filled with love... God is filling me with love right now." I don't think it means we should never feel angry about anything If a certain "positive" type of anger comes about, such as knowledge of child abuse, or cruelty to animals, or any kind of prejudice or injustice, or lack of care for those creatures who need it most, then it can motivate me to be helpful and to get involved and to make a positive difference. But the most important thing is to feel love! And to give it where I can! Now, when I see someone who seems to have what I want, instead of letting jealousy of that person wash over me, I stop and say "I love that person and I pray for their health, well-being, and love!"

And the results are astounding! I feel better all over, and that opens so many different doors of all kinds. Sometimes someone who may have hurt my feelings will suddenly apologize to me, and reconciliation always feels good all over. Or suddenly, I will find something I thought was lost... or an unexpected nice surprise will just pop up... or my three little nephews will come down and all of them will come running up for big hugs! I just seem to experience more abundance... .mental, spiritual, as well as material... when I am operating from a mindset of being loving. It's like, when I let myself brood or feel jealousy or resentment, I slam all the doors shut... mental, spiritual, and material... and when I am feeling loving or at least telling myself to be loving, the doors open back up again... even ones that I didn't know existed!

Note from Cynthia: I know exactly what you mean about how things just get sooo much better with love. Particularly with those "little things" like smiles, hugs, kind words, unexpected support, encouragement from strangers that together, add up to so much. Your story is an excellent reminder that we live our lives for love.

Small Maple Tree Appears
Stratford, Connecticut

In our garden, there was a spot where I SWEAR there was nothing....there was only pachysandra.. and I am not drinking or on drugs, and haven't become delusional or senile, but one day when I walked by that spot there was a small maple tree! I HONEST TO GOD SWEAR THAT TREE WAS NOT THERE, CYNTHIA! When I asked my mother if she noticed the tree, she said she hadn't noticed it before. And I asked my sister, but unfortunately, she didn't remember a tree or not because she has been so busy with her three boys. Some trees grow fast, but not within a matter of two days! My "inner skeptic" says "No, that's ridiculous.. I just never noticed the tree before... I've been busy lately and I just never took the time to see it." Well, no one in my family has had time to garden lately, and I doubt anyone in the neighborhood would want to sneak into our yard and plant a tree just for fun and because they had nothing better to do!" (Even though planting a tree is ALWAYS a nice thing to do.) And I swear there was no maple tree there before!

Note from Cynthia: This is a wonderful story... and such an excellent example of how we can change the past as if by walking into a completely new reality where a tree appeared which could not possibly have grown to such size in two days!

Backwards Shifts in Time
Ontario, Canada

I've been noticing backwards shifts in time. A couple of nights ago, I looked at the menu on the TV, and noted that it said 12:38... and the menu had moved to the 12:30 mark. I went back to watching my show, on the next commercial, I looked again, and it now showed the time to be 12:27 and had moved back to the 12:00 mark. This type of thing has happened at least six times in approximately the last month. The time shift is always backwards.

Note from Cynthia: Your story fascinates me because it is similar to experiences Ive had in which time has gone very, very slowly or stopped almost completely. It is good to notice what you are thinking and feeling when these time changes occur, to see if you detect any patterns.

Vanishing Egg Cups
Prince Edward Island, Canada

I have a story about some egg cups. I had an egg cup, and one day I used it. Then the next time I went to use it I could not find it, so I used another one. When I went to use it again, I could not find the second one. I bought two more egg cups that were the same as the first, with little feet on them. I used one a couple or more times. One day, I looked in the cupboard for something, and one of the egg cups was gone. Why egg cups? I have since cleaned out all my kitchen cupboards and did not find any of the missing egg cups. I had the first two egg cups for a long time before they disappeared. Thank you for your interesting emails. Namaste. Pearl.

Note from Cynthia: This is a most interesting story, as it seems your egg cups are vanishing one by one... and not returning. Have any of them ever come back, or do they just seem to disappear? Keep in mind that most reality shifts seem to operate like itinerant magicians... first taking something away, then returning it later... so perhaps you'll find that some of these egg cups are indeed coming back... perhaps even in some place you haven't looked and wouldn't expect. Please do keep us posted!

(5) Reality Shifting Q&A / Mail Bag

Spiritual Life Coach Cynthia

is a fascinating as well as a challenging topic. But it is much easier to understand with regards to quantum events than it is to understand regarding events in our personal lives. It surely needs to be more than an intellectual exercise if we - especially as non-scientists - are to benefit from it. For the pragmatists amongst us, the question is: does this mean I can influence my own past, and if so how? In fact, is there something tangible and measurable that I can do to counteract the "if onlys" in my life? (With the benefit of hindsight surely we would all like to change choices we made in the past!) Are you saying that retrospective wisdom can actually be employed in this way to change our own history?
-- S.J.B.
New Zealand

Dearest S.J.B.,
This is an excellent question, and one that is the topic of this months ezine. While the newest view of causality and time in the realm of theoretical physicists is to consider bi-causality, the practical application of retrocausality is still mind-boggling to most people. The short answer to your question is yes, you can learn to influence your past. As to how to learn to do that, a lot depends on your ability to do things such as get parking spaces when you need them in crowded areas. If you are already quite adept at such instant manifestations, then you are in good shape to change the past. Some ways that people practically change their pasts is by praying for spontaneous remissions from otherwise incurable diseases and injuries. For those of us who would like to improve their skills at reality shifting, it is advisable to start by meditating every day, and by keeping a gratitude journal... stating out loud and from the heart all that we feel most thankful for. When we make this a regular, daily practice we can watch to see how our lives improve by the sheer volume of things to be grateful for. Long-standing problems can vanish as if they had never existed, and even if some problems do not instantly disappear, it is possible to see tremendous overall improvements. It also helps to open our minds to the possibility of retrocausality by reading articles about it, such as the paper I presented at a conference last year, while imagining what we would most love to manifest in our past.
lots of love,
-- Cynthia

We Are Here

We Are Here
The Voice of the New Perspective

by Ron & Denny Reynolds
Tapping into the "Inner We"

As the third book in Ron and Denny Reynold's inspirational self-help trilogy, WE ARE HERE immediately sets itself apart from its predecessors by presenting information that came through from H.S., which the Reynolds explain can stand for human subconscious, higher self, or holy spirit... depending on the reader's beliefs. WE ARE HERE describes how it can be possible for anyone to access the voice of spirit, and contains some of the most interesting transcripts from "The We" obtained by the Reynolds. While Ron Reynolds channels The We, psychotherapist Denny Reynolds and others ask questions which provide WE ARE HERE with its unique focus and direction. The basic teachings of The We reflect global truths such as those found in perennial philosophy about the nature of reality, the self and the world... yet some channeled sessions delve into relatively newer concepts of how we create our own reality as we choose to be and express either love or fear. A central key to these teachings is that there is no such thing as objective reality, because when we change our minds, we influence everything. One of the things I love most about WE ARE HERE is how it describes that we are not our bodies and we are not our stories... that we are able to allow life and divine spirit to flow through us so we may see how all aspects of our lives are perfection and in divine order. When we learn to be still and turn off the ego mind, we are capable of knowing and understanding all, as we accelerate our spiritual growth. There is a gentle quality of compassionate kindness to this book, which makes it a true delight and inspirational treat to read.
