Question Your Fears

Cynthia Sue Larson & AlijandraCynthia Sue Larson with Alijandra at East/West Books in Sacramento

    "Fear is a question: What are you afraid of, and why? Just as the seed of health is in illness, because illness contains information, your fears are a treasure house of self-knowledge if you explore them. "
    -- Marilyn Ferguson
You are your strongest, most inspired, and most successful when you have cleared your fears... and the process of clearing them will bring you many unexpected gifts along the way. When I encounter scary situations and ask the question, "What am I afraid of... and why?", I think of something that brings me a deeper understanding of myself at the same time as my fear is cleared away.

One scary incident occurred recently when I was caring for a friend's pet dog while their family was away on vacation. This dog is part pit bull and is extremely strong, heavy, and muscular for her height and length, with jaws that have reduced many pieces of furniture and other household items (including parts of the house itself) to rubble. When I arrived one evening to take her off her outdoor line and bring her into the house for her dinner, I was startled to see her twist free from my grasp on her collar and bound free about the fenced yard. I called to her to come have her dinner, but she stood her ground and bared her teeth, growling a deep, gutteral growl. All the hairs on my body were now standing on end, as I extended a dog biscuit and tried calling to her again. This time, she growled more ferociously at me, her yellow eyes gleaming resentment... and barked a warning bark that clearly said, "Keep away!"

I gazed into her warning gaze and felt fear wash over me like a wet, icy cloud. In that moment I realized how deadly this dog could be if she wished to be. I then remembered that dogs can smell fear, and fear is the one emotion I could not afford the luxury of experiencing at that moment. I asked myself, "What are you afraid of?" and noted that I was most scared that the dog would sense I was losing "top dog" status, and that she would not allow me to bring her inside for her dinner. As soon as I knew what my fear was... that I would not know how to maintain a sense of dominance in the "pack," I relaxed, and did the best I could to let go of my fear and my worry. It was exactly at the moment when I relaxed that I knew what I could do! The dog's owners sometimes had her do a trick called, "up on the table," in which she would hop up on top of a patio table in the yard. I assumed my most commanding demeanor and firmly said, "up on the table," and was surprised and delighted when she complied with abashed docility.

As this dog-sitting experience reminded me, there is real power in asking oneself the right question at the right time. Next time you are feeling afraid, ask yourself the question, "What am I afraid of?" and pay close attention to the answer. Chances are, you'll discover something wonderful in yourself and the world!

lots of love,

A new interview has been uploaded in which Cynthia Sue Larson describes her personal experiences with reality shifting, observing large scale changes in physical reality, seeing auras, becoming one with the rain, and her Kundalini experience. What prevents manifesting, getting out of your own way, letting go and grounding, the auric membrane and how perception affects our cells, are just a few of the topics covered on this fascinating subject.

Later on, sometimes several generations later, a child behaves like a person in the family who had been excluded before. Or that child leads a life similar to that person who was excluded. But this child does not know anything of what had happened before. This shows that the members of the family are part of something greater, of a greater soul that unites them, or of a collective conscience which moves them all in the same direction. This greater force does not tolerate that anybody is excluded. It wants to do right to those who had been excluded by forcing another member to repeat their life. This we call an entanglement.

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Long Beach, Mississippi

I have been thinking about how there have been many reality shifts in my life, because I remember saying to myself and others on several occasions, "There goes another one of those mysteries that cannot be explained!" I have come to accept this as a way of life.

One in particular stands out in my mind. In the last three years, my family has had a major baby boom. Last year at Christmas I was looking for outfits for three baby boys. I needed a 3 month size, a 6 month size and a 9 month size. I found the perfect outfits for 3 months and 6 months, but could not find the right outfit in a 9 month size. The next closest baby store was way out of the way for me and I was running out of time, so I needed to find that outfit that day from that store. The store did have 9 month outfits, but none that I liked. I remember looking at the outfit I wanted in every size except the size that I needed. I looked at that rack where it should be several times and it was just not there. I would look, wander around the store looking for something else, and go back to that rack. I would look again, go ask the store clerk who said that everything that they had was displayed, and go back to that SAME rack again.

I remember thinking, "This is stupid! The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." Yet - I went back to that same rack several times hoping the outfit I wanted would magically appear. Finally I decided I would have to go elsewhere for the nine month outfit, but I would look at that rack ONE MORE TIME before I left. I was pleasantly surprised to find that there on the rack was the exact outfit I had been looking for! I scooped it up immediately and bought it right away thinking I must be overtired and delirious, but relieved and thankful that this "weird" thing happened. I have thought about that often ever since. I KNOW that it was not there the first several times I had looked. There was absolutely no explanation for this that I could come up with! But, I sure was glad that it happened! It saved me a whole lot of time and trouble.

San Diego, California

I was in the market for a minivan. I asked an inner guide to scout out this vehicle within the area of San Diego. I heard the guide ask for details specifically. My response was "dependable and looks good." Alas, I wasn't specific enough. The guide appeared as a young man who did this sort of thing for many folks, traveling the collective consciousness matching up folks. As the future event unfolded I would be driving down the highway and the steering wheel would shake necessitating a great deal of yanking and panic would set in. I regained control and had to make a quick decision whether to catch up to my daughter, unaware of my delimmia, or pull over for repairs. This location in the collective appeared as 'the accident planning station.' However, I wished to learn how I was not a victim to accident. I ask for a mechanic. An authority figure impresses me that when the time comes, I should use common sense instead of the impulse to return to the highway. My fears are put at rest and the problem is easily corrected despite my panic. Upon arriving in San Diego I was led to purchase this same van after driving right to it from an internet ad. A fine engine with an unnoticeable hairline crack in the handle of the cruise control. I had forgotten about the dream.

My daughter and I took the fated roadtrip in the van and pulled off the highway for a drink. She was cranky from traveling, so we made the same U-turn as I had dreamed when the steering wheel began shaking and I couldn't turn it and panic set in. My daughter had no idea I was in trouble. A small piece of plastic had slipped down into the steering column jamming it. At that moment I remembered my dream, and knew I was to remain calm. I pulled over at a convenience store parking lot, spied a biker staring into space, seemingly waiting for a damsel in distress and I pounced on him and he sprang into action. Working together in about ten minutes time, we managed to remove the offending piece of plastic jamming the steering wheel. At that moment the biker had become my best friend. If I had gone ahead into San Diego traffic there no doubt would have been an accident. I had almost been tempted to take my chances as the plastic was floating within the cavity and at times I could steer quite well. I found out we are taken care of. There are helpers who live to extend kindness. I am convinced the biker and I had an appointment with destiny. This dream occurred several months ahead of the purchase of the van. There had been many choices but I ended up with the one with this defect. I needed to be reminded it is not a random or chaotic reality which I create, and on the other hand that accidents are actual planned events on subconscious levels not usually entertained. As for the hairline crack in the handle, next time I ask a guide to get me a vehicle, I will specify to make sure the cruise control is perfectly perfect! Be specific what you ask for was the other valuable lesson besides learning that this world can be a benevolent place to live in.

(5) Reality Shifters Q & A

Q: Dear Cynthia,
I am very interested in the movement of time and the idea of moving through time. Several times over the last few weeks I have looked at the clock to check the time, then perhaps ten minutes later checked it again and found that it is an hour or so earlier than it was a few minutes ago. For example, last week I was busy in the kitchen and I glanced at the microwave clock which said 12:50. Shortly afterwards I looked at it again and found it to be 11:36. The changes in the clock happened in the middle of the day when I was busy but not tired. Nothing else unusual happened during these shifts. Neither do I take any kind of medication. I am a 47 year old mother of two, living a fairly quiet life in a small town. As I said, this has happened several times in the last few weeks. I have not been absent minded in other areas of my life. That is a question I asked myself before emailing you. I tend to look forūmundane reasons for odd events before deciding that the event was indeed anomalous. What's going on?
- Jacqueline
Ontario, Canada

A: Dear Jacqueline,
Just as we notice shifts in the reality of space, we can experience shifts in time. When you've experienced a change in time such as you've described, and you're certain you are not tired or absent-minded, it is likely that you are witnessing a time shift. These kinds of shifts have occurred in my life at times when I wished I had more time... forgotten I made such a wish... and then am surprised to find that I really do have lots more time because time doesn't seem to be moving forward the way it usually does. I notice these kinds of enjoyable time shifts the most when I'm relaxed and enjoying being in a state of feeling great love, and I notice feeling more rushed and like I have much less time when I'm feeling afraid and stressed.
lots of love,
-- Cynthia

Dreaming While Awake

Dreaming While Awake
Techniques for 24 hour Lucid Dreaming

by Arnold Mindell

Learn How to Live Large

Dreaming While Awake is one of the best books I've yet read on the subject of recognizing one's fullest spiritual identity. Author Arnold Mindell explains how playing with nonconsensus and consensus reality can help one attain a sense of lucid living... of recognizing the "Big You." Mindell describes how the Big You creates the world and sees through the illusory nature of consensus reality, to rise above the petty (yet often infuriatingly stressful) situations we find ourselves in. When you are not lucid, the universe can seem inexplicable. When you are lucid, you understand that you can stray present in the cloudedness of your ordinary senses, sensing information around you with highly tuned intuition. In a state of Big You lucidity, even your opponents are understood to be another part of the Big You... and you can find your way to better outcomes than you have ever imagined. I love the way Dreaming While Awake takes the reader on an odyssey of exploring the furthest reaches of consciousness, to discover how reality itself can be a magical symbol that flirts with our awareness. I also love the way Mindell includes real-life examples of how he has felt when he became aware of his own "Big You" and dealt with difficult situations from that elevated state of mind. Dreaming While Awake is a classic book on the subject of consciousness and reality that is destined to be read and re-read and cherished forever.

Real Prosperity

Real Prosperity
Using the Power of Intuition to Create Financial & Spiritual Abundance

by Lynn Robinson

Discover the Secrets to Living a Rich Life

Why is it that some people enjoy lives of luxury, abundance and success, while others struggle to make ends meet? Intuitive consultant Lynn Robinson answers this question as she illuminates the keys to real prosperity, and how to enjoy a life overflowing with more than enough of what you need and want. Robinson shares tips that have helped her thousands of clients realize their dreams over the years, and describes people who are successful, happy and prosperous as, "It's as if prosperity and success seek them out. They magnetize what they want to create through the power of their mind and emotion." REAL PROSPERITY helps you listen to your prosperity intuition to discover a personalized roadmap to achieving your goals. REAL PROSPERITY is full of excercises, quotations, and stories that describe a spiritual path to abundance. One of my favorite parts of the book is where Robinson points out that often it's often the bleakest times in our lives that turn out to be launch pads for new opportunities and success. This pattern becomes obvious when successful people look back at their lives... and see how they made the biggest turnarounds in the midst of major life changes. REAL PROSPERITY is written in the very energy of prosperity it describes, so the very act of reading it immediately boosts one's prosperity consciousness. I give this book my highest recommendation!
