RealityShifters News - December 2001
Changing the Physical Universe With Our Thoughts and Feelings

Many Possible Pasts, Many Possible Futures
    "You can worry your life away with
    Not knowing what each new day may bring to you
    Or take each day as it goes on
    Wake up to the love that flows on, around you."

    "If you believe - if you believe in you
    Everything you thought is possible, if you believe . . .
    If you believe in me . . .
    All your love's reflected back to you
    When you believe."

    "Too many troubles you can't control
    To get you falling into the holes they dig for you
    Get up - you have all your needs; Pray
    Give up - and it all recedes away from you.
    If you believe - if you believe in you."

    "Everything you thought is possible, if you believe . . .
    If you believe in me . . .
    All your love's reflected back to you
    When you believe."

    - "If You Believe", by George Harrison

I felt the loss of George Harrison this past month, as I learned he had died of cancer on November 29th at 58 years of age. George was much more than "just one of the Beatles". He was a pioneer for everyone concerned with spirituality, consciousness, and the quest for deeper understanding. He would be one of the first to remind all of us who miss him that death is a doorway -- a passage to another way of experiencing the universe.

I was thinking about George this week when a friend of mine visited and we played guitar together. My friend showed me copies of some Beatles songs she has, and I asked her where she had gotten them. "I think these songs came from your book of Beatles music," she replied. I was momentarily stunned, because I did remember a past in which I had a book of Beatles songs. I also clearly remembered a past in which I did NOT have that book, and had worked out some of the words and music to my favorite Beatles songs on my own. In fact, I had those sheets of music, which I showed to my friend -- explaining that when my daughter started playing guitar, I'd checked to see if I had a book of Beatles songs, and found that I didn't -- so I'd painstakingly typed out the words to her favorite songs!

I showed my friend those music sheets, and felt shivers of excitement as I visualized the reality path in which that Beatles music book reunites with me. I stood up slowly and walked over to the one and only place I keep music books in my house. Sure enough, there was my book of Beatles music, looking for all the world as if it had always been right there. I grinned from ear to ear, and announced with joy, "I've found it!"

Wishing you all the best possible futures (and pasts!),

REALITY SHIFTS: Feeling Tired? Help Yourself to Free Energy!
by Cynthia Sue Larson

'Tis the season for shopping, parties, cooking, and decorating. At this time of year, most of us can use some extra energy. The next time you find yourself feeling low energy, stressed, or like some kind of illness is coming on, remember that you have access to a free and infinite source of energy!


By Bernadette Cahill

September 11th was one of many "shots heard 'round the world." The Global Consciousness Project began at Princeton University may be on the verge of proving what the spiritual community has claimed all along about prayer and meditation: that group consciousness exists, and it can show up on a worldwide scale.



(2) Your Reality Shift Stories

New York City, New York
copyright 2001

I've been aware of reality shifts for years. I always say about the missing things, "Well, they've popped off into the other dimension again."

Just the other day, I was looking for my slippers. I'm chronically neat, and I had just one. I don't ever wear just one slipper, so I looked under the bed, the most likely place to find the other one. I found three other pairs, but my favorite was missing. We then scoured the entire house (a small one!) to no avail.

Later on, I decided to check under the bed again. And there it was, in plain sight. This happens to me constantly. Although I'm not Catholic, I often ask Saint Anthony for help, among others, and he never fails.

One thing missing for a long time has been my wedding ring. That would be a scary one, except for this fact: we had just gotten two kittens, and one of them (mine, of course) decided she liked some of my things so much she had to have them. I went to sleep with my ring on the night table (it doesn't fit too well, and I always worried about it falling off in my sleep) and in the morning, my engagement ring, which I wore everyday then, was there, but not my wedding ring, which is still missing to date.

Now, though, after a year, I know my cats and their likes and dislikes. Gabrielle likes butterflies, as do I, and she's taken many a hair clip, ring, or what have you. The other day she took a small pewter one filled with flowers I really liked. I asked for it back and told her it could be hers, but could we share it where I could see it, and she brought it back.

I lived most of my life without cats or any pets or pests who could move my things, and what you write about is an everyday thing to me. I'm highly interested in it, and was so glad I found your site. Have you ever noticed that there are two kinds of synchronicity? The good kind, that tells you that you are on the right path, or the bad kind, which to my mind means something is wrong, to rethink my reality.

I think the more people realize this, the better (or, worse), the world will be. I seem to be on a good roll now, and it's my Saturn seven year, if you know astrology. I'm glad you're finding recognition, and just wanted to know how much I appreciate your making people more aware of this. Hopefully, the "good" people.

Perth, Western Australia

One day after I'd had a healing, I stopped in at the local bakery on my way home. I saw some yummy muffins under a dome on a plate, and noticed that there were only two left. I said to the girl behind the counter, "I'll take the last two", while thinking to myself, "I wish there were more muffins, so I could take one for my husband."

I turned away to look at my young child, and as I turned back, I saw that the girl behind the counter had put the two remaining muffins in a bag, yet there were still two more muffins on the plate. I was aghast -- and asked for the other two that had materialized.

The most amazing thing about this story is that the young girl looked incredulously at me and asked, "Where did I just get these muffins from? There were only two left!" And then she asked me, "Is there spirit in this room or something"? I just smiled and nodded knowingly, and she and I will never forget that day and those muffins, I'm sure!


I was walking along the sidewalk one day on my way to Concodia University, thinking about the nature of Reality. I said to myself, "Give me a sign if it's possible to control reality." Just then, I heard the sound of something striking the ground ahead of me. There, five feet away, lay a pack of cards. I picked the pack up, and saw it had Air France written on it, with French symbols (such as R for Roi or King). The pictures were beautiful and the deck was full. Since I didn't see it land, I don't know where it fell from. Perhaps it fell from the sky? Or did someone in a passing car throw out the pack? Does a pack of cards mean we can play our "hand" however we wish? We make our luck?

I've been working on a novel who's main character is named Reinhardt. The funny thing is, I see that name or variations of it wherever I go -- such as on an olive oil bottle, books, or a passing truck. I've developed a keen desire to learn German and listen to German music. It's very difficult to find German music here in Montreal, so I prowl used book and music stores looking for it. One day, I entered a rundown store and almost stepped on a record that lay in the center of the floor. Ja! The singer's name was Reinhard Mey! I looked through the entire collection (3000 at least) in hopes of finding more of his records. Not one could I find! How come there was just that one which I almost stepped on? When I was at the cashout, a girl came in with some cassettes she wished to sell. I asked her if she had any cassettes by a man called Reinhard. She said she had never heard the name, but she let me look through her collection. I found two cassettes, which I bought on the spot. One was by a guy called Django Reinhardt, and the other was Reinhard Lakomy. Question. How come she didn't know she had them?

Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, UK

The November issue of RealityShifters News puts me in mind of an experience of mine. Back in 1977, six of us from a local earth mysteries group went down to Somerset and visited Cadbury Castle, a large earthwork that is one of the main contenders for the site of Arthur's Camelot. When we arrived there, we each found ourselves going off on our own and getting into very separate spaces. For myself, I went up to one corner of the rampart, the highest part of the perimeter, and stood there facing into the wind. I then tried to imagine myself back in the period when the historical Arthur (if there was one) probably existed - either Iron Age or more likely 6th century CE. I stood still there, focussing, for a considerable time, probably getting on for an hour, despite the strong wind. During that time I was aware of one of my friends coming up and sitting down to meditate, facing me about five yards behind.

Eventually I came 'back to the world' and turned round. My friend nearly jumped out of his skin, and asked me how long I'd been there! He was flabbergasted when I told him that I'd been aware of him arriving behind me some time before and wondered why he'd decided to meditate so close! Apparently he'd not seen me at all, though standing on the skyline so close to him I should have been pretty hard to miss!

Shortly after that the group found itself spontaneously regathering - Cadbury is large enough for people to lose each other quite easily. One of them, sitting in a tree diagonally opposite my position on the rampart, remarked that he had been hearing strange sounds, like carts moving about, shouting and domestic animal noises from the direction where I'd been standing, though there was nothing on the hill, and I'd not heard any such noise being borne on the wind. I think we each had some kind of shift that day at Cadbury - and that was mine, and wasn't to be the last I had in connection with Cadbury Castle, though that's another story.

Fairborn, Ohio

I have become increasingly aware of the subtle reality shifts that seem to occur. In April my sixteen year old son was in the hospital for a serious illness. His room was three doors down from the back end of the corridor, and one evening as I sat in a chair reading, I observed the floor nurse go into a room at the far end of the corridor. As I turned the book page, I was abruptly startled as the same nurse came out of a room right in front of where I was sitting and six doors down from where she went in a room. I was so startled that I retraced my reading to where I was when I first saw her. I had only read about three sentences! There was no way she could have gotten to where she did in the time frame involved and without my having seen her.

In October 2001, at 1:30 in the morning, my wife who is a nurse was going into a patient's room. As she entered the room, she saw her supervisor (with clipboard) coming down the hallway. My wife motioned to her to stay, and said she would only be a moment. When she came out, her supervisor was gone. No one else had seen her. At 5:30 the supervisor was doing her rounds and my wife asked her why she didn't stay earlier. The supervisor stated, "This is the first time I have been on this floor tonight." When my wife explained what happened and that she had looked right into her eyes earlier, they got goosebumps. Because of your writings and the things I have discussed with her about reality shifts, she was excited and said to me, "I've had one of those reality shifts you talk about".

While preparing for work in August, my wife asked me if I had thrown a quarter at her while she was in our kitchen. (I hadn't) A quarter had appeared in mid-air and hit her shoulder and dropped into the dog food dish. Life is surprising!!

Hands of Light

by Barbara Ann Brennan

A Classic and Essential Reference Book

I consider HANDS OF LIGHT to be an essential reference book for anyone who is seriously interested in exploring energy healing. I am impressed with the way author Barbara Ann Brennan describes her early childhood experiences of sensing energy fields around trees and all living things, and even more impressed that after many years of training in physics and western ways of scientism, she never lost her inner sense of knowing.

HANDS OF LIGHT includes many pictures of auras and chakras, which serve to illustrate her points about how to identify common personality types and relationship types based on her in-depth personal healing experiences. Brennan also proceeds to explain how to help improve one's health by working on one's energy field.

Full enjoyment of HANDS OF LIGHT requires that the reader either have an open mind regarding the fact that many people can see auras and chakras, or the ability to see these things oneself. Brennan provides exercises to help people learn how to see energy fields, so any reader with a sincere interest in the subject of energy healing will most likely be very satisfied with this classic book.

Elves of Lily HIll

by Penny Kelly

Discovering a Universe of Intelligent, Creative Life Forms

What if we humans are not the only sentient beings in the universe, and some of those intelligent life forms are right here on Earth at this very moment? Penny Kelly addresses this question and others in her absorbing book, THE ELVES OF LILY HILL FARM. This is the story of how she met and learned to work with and trust the elves and nature spirits on her organic farm in order to succeed in her goal of harvesting 100 tons of grapes in a season -- a truly spectacular yield.

From Penny's first encounters with elves and devas (whom she sketches at the back of her book) to her discussions with vines, weeds, and various marauding animal nuisances -- the reader gains a sense of what it feels like to be in communication with the vast variety of intelligent life around us every day. Is it possible to communicate with the plants and animals around us? Absolutely. Is this communication a one-way street? Hopefully not! Kelly's tale inspired me to pay more attention to the way I interact with the intelligent life all around me -- being a bit more conscious to listen instead of just commanding orders of what I expect to occur.

I especially loved reading the comments and questions the elves posed for Penny -- including such deceptively simple queries such as, "How is it ye choose among the activities that come before ye?" The insights Penny gained as she found a way towards achieving balance in her life are valuable to us all, whether or not we are raising organic produce.

by W. Robynne McWayne

The Ultimate Reality Resides in Consciousness Itself

If you've been looking for a book that explains how what you think affects everything around you from a down-to-earth yet science-based point of view -- look no further! McWayne's playful mind imbues RADICAL REALITY with zesty physics concepts served up with generous helpings of humor and practical applications in daily life. Starting from the basic premises with which quantum physics rocked the world and moving forward to psychological implications of how the world changes as we change the way we view it, this anesthesiologist-turned- science-teacher drives her message home: you can make anything happen!

McWayne describes consciousness as being "not only implied by the equations for how the universe works", but also as being, "the transcendent multidimensional source and substance of the universe itself." If this concept is new to you, you'll find RADICAL REALITY to be a wonderful adventure, and if you already are familiar with both physics and consciousness, chances are good that you'll find this book to be scrumptious food for thought.

Book of the Hopi

by Frank Waters

Perhaps the Most Complete Compendium of Hopi Information

Frank Waters' excellent BOOK OF THE HOPI is probably the most complete collection of Hopi stories, language, rituals, and photographs in one place. Waters wrote this book with assistance from thirty-two Hopi elders back in 1963. Much time has passed since then, and while the way of the Hopi remains mostly unchanged, access to their sacred ceremonies and rituals has been greatly reduced in the last several decades.

While BOOK OF THE HOPI was written through the eyes and ears of an outsider, it contains much of the spirit of the Hopi, and countless fascinating insights. One such example is the explanation of how one sacred ceremony (the Ya Ya) was profaned and is no longer performed, since much of its powers were taken for evil. "When you receive a wonderful power and use it for evil you lose the power. You have to use it for good to keep it."

I love the richness of information contained in this little book: symbols, the tablets of the clans, a glossary of Hopi words, thrilling tales about the creation of the worlds, and detailed descriptions of sacred objects such as the Paho (prayer-feather). This attention to detail is marvelous, but it's the heart of BOOK OF THE HOPI that makes me feel at home with the Hopi and at one with their spirit.

I give this book my highest recommendation.
