How Good Can it Get?
Cynthia Sue Larson

Live a Soulful Life

“The soul becomes dyed
with the colour of its thoughts.”
- Marcus Aurelius

Have you ever noticed that there is a soulful quality of being alive that you can sometimes can feel at different times to varying degrees?

I feel an especially joyful sense of vibrancy when I'm with my favorite places, people, experiences and things. What I find most interesting when I am feeling I am having soulful experiences is that they can't be reduced down to some formulaic recipe. I know that even though I'm feeling really vibrantly alive when I'm with a friend it's simply not enough to tell someone to be with a friend and they'll feel that amazingly radiant sense of being fully alive. Similarly, even having a beautiful sunset in itself might not be sufficient to guarantee everyone will have a soulful experience. Soulfulness cannot be pieced together with all the right parts, since what makes it feel soulful in the first place is a special intrinsic spark that is present in the most magical moments in life. This special soulfulness is palpable to the point that we can actually feel uplifted and inspired when it is present—and crestfallen and heartbroken when it is gone.

I have visited places in the world where I felt upon departing that I was literally leaving a piece of my heart behind. I have felt such a sense of belonging to some places and with some people, that each moment felt magically transcendent and blessed. And I have felt my heart break when leaving some places and people I'd just met, but who had deeply connected with my soul. In those moments I felt the pain of loving deeply—yet I also realized that in living with such a sense of connection, I was fully living.

In this time when our technologies invite us to be entertained with screen time, we might miss the gentle invitation to engage our soul meaningfully. We can see and get to know 'the color of our thoughts' by the way we spend our time. Chances are that when we are going beyond whatever labels we might use to describe ourselves, in those moments we are truly living our most soulful lives.

Just as you can feed your body nutritious food, and provide care to get sufficient rest, you'll likely notice you feel your best when you also take care to nourish your soul. Making time to gaze at natural beauty, take a stroll through a garden, hum a favorite melody, or laugh with someone who touches your soul can make all the difference. From such a soulful way of living, every little moment and experience can be a 'big deal' in the best possible way.

Love always,
Cynthia Sue Larson

Soulfulness, Mandela Effects, and Reality Shifts
There is an amazing connection between soulfulness, Mandela Effect and reality shifts. I’ve been re-reading a book by Jacob Needleman, I Am Not I.  A key idea in this book is that Jacob Needleman has written a book about his older self, Jacob, meeting his younger self, Jerry.  The idea here is that different levels of self can–and often do–interact.  This book delves into the concept of soulfulness; it plays with the very concept of true self identity. What Needleman recalls that Gurdjieff recommended most often to everyone was to: “remember yourself always and everywhere.” That’s a tall order, because following this directive really takes us out of our sense of self-definition by measurables.  In the realm of measurables, we might think, for example, “I’ve been a teacher for this many years,” or “I’m a student at this level,” or “I earned this many dollars,” or “I’m married,” or “I’m divorced.” These types of measurable statements might be considered to be accurate descriptors of yourself, but somehow they don’t get to the core of a sense of intense “I-ness.”  There is an intense, transformative “I Am” quality.  When you have this intense quality, you know it.

Rupert Sheldrake
Science and Spiritual Practices with Rupert Sheldrake
on Living the Quantum Dream with Cynthia Sue Larson

Cynthia Sue Larson talks with Rupert Sheldrake about spiritual practices that are open to everyone and can provide people with measurably improved health and well-being.  Sheldrake describes how focusing attention on virtues such as gratitude can help us better appreciate how ultimately, everything we have is a gift.  When we appreciate mysteries of everyday life experiences such as: a sense of being stared at, telephone telepathy, and dogs who know when their owners are coming home, we can envision how we better fit the metaphor of organisms, rather than mindless, unconscious machines. Rupert Sheldrake is a biologist and author who is best known for his hypothesis of morphic resonance. At Cambridge University, Sheldrake worked in developmental biology as a Fellow of Clare College. He was Principal Plant Physiologist at the International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics in Hyderabad, India. From 2005 to 2010 he was Director of the Perrott-Warrick project for research on unexplained human and animal abilities, funded by Trinity College, Cambridge. Sheldrake's website is:

(3) Your Reality Shift Stories

Ozzy Osborne Alive Again and My Hand-written Notes Changed
Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA

So I read your article about Quantum Jumping, and while I feel a bit crazy talking about it, I definitely believe it's happened to me. A little background; I worked in the TV news industry for 5 years, so I'm a big believer in fact checking. It wasn't until the last 2 or so that I started noticing more major changes. I am the first one to rationalize the differences and chalk it up to human error, because the facts are facts, and they are usually right in front of me as a journalist. Until a handful of things recently have really just shaken me. On several occasions, I remember writing out and fact checking stories about celebrities who have died--only to later find out they never died, were never ill, and are still up and about in the world right now. In one case, it was Ozzy Osborne. I remember writing the story about how he had a stroke and was in the hospital, and I remember my boss HOUNDING me to get it into the show. A week later he passed away, and I wrote a story about how Sharon Osborne was keeping it on the down low, and keeping the funeral and everything pretty family oriented. Not a whole lot of publicity. Fast forward to NOW and he's still very much alive and well, and many of my close friends say Sharon would NEVER keep it a quiet ceremony. I've also painstakingly hand written things in a journal I keep for DND (yup, total nerd right here) only to come back and find either it was NEVER written down or that my hand writing has changed to make a mechanic different. Not gonna lie it kinda feels like a living dream, and it's happened 4 or 5 times now. I figured it'd be best to reach out to you about my story, because I'm feeling a bit crazy to be honest. Thank you so much for your time.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks for writing and sharing your experiences noticing changes in your own hand-written journal, and with regard to researching background in the TV news industry for celebrity obituaries--who turned out to have never died.  And when I read your having remembered Ozzie Osbourne having died, that feels surprisingly familiar to me. I can relate to feeling a bit crazy when first noticing these shifts, but I relaxed when, over the course of time, I adopted a more relaxed attitude with regard to the supposedly fixed nature of 'facts' and histories.  I also feel it helps to  make a commitment to being of service, and also to maintain an intention that whatever is occurring be in the best interest of all concerned--to keep asking, "How good can it get?" with a sense of faith that indeed, that is what is happening.


this is the life I ordered
This is the Life I Ordered
Young Harris, Georgia, USA

I had to correct the mantra on this huggie!

Note from Cynthia: Ooooh—I love how you changed what came printed on the cup holder from “This is not the life I ordered” to “This is the life I ordered”! This is a great reminder to relax, and let shifts fall where they may. Sometimes we can get caught up in feeling upset that things are not going quite the way we had hoped or expected—yet sometimes, if we stop to 'smell the roses' and pay just a bit more attention, we may find ourselves delighted and surprised at just how good it can get. Thanks so much for sharing this!

Lucid Living Photo Editing
Young Harris, Georgia, USA

attended the birthday party a few weeks ago of my 95-year-old step grandfather.  We wanted to capture a group photo of everyone and some volunteered to be the photographer and not be included in the photo.  As I had become skilled at photo editing, I assured them that wouldn't be necessary and I took about three photos of the group.  Then someone took my photo standing where I would have been if we had a separate photographer.  Upon my nephew's late arrival, I took another photo of him standing where he would have been also.  Later, I examined the photos and found some people not smiling in one or with their head turned in another, so I combined images from four photos into the final product that turned out quite well.  It was what the photo would have been if taken by a professional getting everyone in one place to face the camera and smile. I had recently read the section in your book, Reality Shifts addressing lucid dreaming and lucid living.  Last night, I was having a troubling dream in which someone I had met was attempting to rob and harm me with a handgun.  After struggling with them, I was safe, but then lucidly thought that I didn't desire to build upon this situation in this dream.  So, I "photo edited" to just cut out the offending person and pasted in another person with whom I had no concerns.  Later in the dream, I cut and pasted yet another individual to create the dream I truly wanted to experience. I then had the epiphany that I had been applying this photo editing technique of altering a lucid dreams to my lucid living.  Three years ago, I created a "visualization board" in the form of a computer document of photo edited images of what I wanted to manifest in my life.  Some of these "goals" have already been achieved and some continue to develop.  Different people that have come in and out of my life have all contributed some concept, realization or aspect effecting this transition.   As you stated in your book, "You are shifting your reality and manifesting what you truly desire, because you are creating something new every moment!"

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing your epiphany regarding photo editing as a lucid dreaming / reality shifting technique.  I've noted in recent years that I need not have any bad dreams, and such dreams for me provide me with an indication that I can benefit from energy clearing at that moment (a topic I delve into in my book "Aura Advantage" and created a blog post and video for).  There is no reason to put up with negative energy in one's dreams, and when we discern such things in dreams and clear the energy, we can greatly improve our waking lives subsequently.  Here's the link to the blog post on setting energetic protection and maintaining good energy hygiene:

Whisky Shift

A couple of months back I was searching for Indian brands of whisky and found that only one distillery produced the single malt whisky and was based in Himachal Pradesh—a state in north India. Now I find that the same distillery is based in Karnataka, a state in south India.

Note from Cynthia: Wow—that is a really significant shift in reality! It’s highly unlikely you’d confuse those two locations, so this kind of shift is quite noticeable and unmistakable. It also seems unlikely you’d confuse those two areas that are so geographically removed from one another.


(4) Mail Bag, Questions, and Answers

Hi, Cynthia!
I really liked your article on quantum jumping. It is in some ways over my head. How do people quantum jump when they are in learned helplessness and in a dire situation? How do you keep from 'throwing in the towel'? When the desire is a positive outcome for the person and family and the situation is difficult, I am not sure what the name is for this block between the two realities? Even more important how to keep all thoughts closing in on a positive outcome? I guess that last question is the one that is most important to me and what I am actually asking. Thanks!
— Athena

Dear Athena,
Sometimes, when people are in life-or-death situations, they finally have good alignment between what they think they want (in their head), what they know they love (in their heart), and what they truly desire (gut).  Sometimes, it's these kind of serious, urgent emergencies that get people to focus with all parts of themselves completely harmoniously aligned, so they get to witness what surely looks like a miraculous quantum jump. So one way to keep all thoughts focused on a positive outcome is to imagine, for example, that you just have one day--or one hour--to live.  Suddenly, some things that had previously seemed desirable are a lot less interesting, and you can bring all of your various thoughts and feelings into alignment.
lots of love,
— Cynthia


Dear Cynthia,
Question: Do you believe persons are moving from one universe to the next (multiversing) or simply shifting their realities (changing it from one thing to something else)? My intuition tells me it’s the latter. What does yours tell you? My experience has shown me everything is energy, the very same energy, and what is perceived is what is expected to be perceived. Do you have a different experience than me? Love,
— Nicole

Dear Nicole,
Your question actually embraces a more fundamental question of 'who are we?' which gets to the real core of things.  While we often presume we know who we are, what I find is that our true identity is consciousness--is energy.  This doesn't really answer your question, which actually is at the heart of the matter of which quantum interpretation is correct.  I'm fond of several, including Henry Stapp's take on the Copenhagen interpretation, Hugh Everett III's multiverse idea, and David Bohm's holographic interpretation.  I also find much to like in John Cramer's Transactional Interpretation--and I interviewed him talking about this on my "Living the Quantum Dream" podcast and radio show:

A Quantum Handshake with John G. Cramer

Your question is inextricably intertwined with the question of "who is the observer?" which seems to drive everything at this time when we are gaining evidence in favor of subjective (rather than objective) reality.  Certainly we get the impression (illusion) that things change, since we're in physical bodies with physical senses, and that's how things appear to us.  What is perceived then depends on all the audience (past, present, future) doing the observing.  Who we are seems to completely run the show. 
lots of love,
— Cynthia


Good morning Cynthia,
Quantum control with light paves way for ultra-fast computers – Futurity
Terahertz light can control some of the essential quantum properties of superconducting states, report researchers. Jigang Wang patiently explains his latest discovery in quantum control that could lead to superfast computing based on quantum mechanics: He mentions light-induced superconductivity without energy gap. He brings up forbidden supercurrent quantum beats. And he mentions terahertz-speed symmetry breaking. Then he backs up and clarified all that. After all, the quantum world of matter
— Mariarita

Dear Mariarita,
Thank you for sharing this with me!  I've been impressed with some of the wonderful research and experimental findings in quantum physics recently.  For example, here is news of a recent discovery that has mind-boggling implications:  experiments provide evidence that quantum mechanics governs large systems, acting as a single entity:
Evidence of macroscopic quantum tunneling detected in nanowires The implications of this are staggering, and suggest nothing less than that we can expect to witness other types of so-called 'quantum behavior' occurring in our daily lives, on the macroscopic scale. There are huge implications in this, some of which we're already getting confirmation for in the field of Quantum Biology, where we see that sense perceptions such as smell likely employ quantum tunneling. On even larger scales, there have been reports of people being teleported (ie tunneled) to safety through physical barriers and across physical distances, as I've written about in my book, Quantum Jumps. This supports the premise I've presented in my books including Quantum Jumps, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, and High Energy Money that quantum phenomena does not stay "in the quantum realm," but indeed can (and will increasingly be confirmed to) occur at levels we humans can witness in our daily lives. I devoted an issue of the RealityShifters ezine to describing some of the 'quantum phenomena' we actually are observing on the macroscopic scale here:
lots of love,
— Cynthia
