How Good Can it Get?
Cynthia Sue Larson
Best-selling authors Cynthia Sue Larson, author of the new book, Quantum Jumps and Eva Herr, author of Consciousness on book tour at the New Renaissance Bookshop in Portland, Oregon
Something Good is Always Possible

"Metaphysics means nothing
but an unusually obstinate
effort to think clearly."
― William James

Every time you ask the question, "How good can it get?" your attention, imagination, and awareness automatically refocuses on what is going well, and how things might become even better. When you give your subconscious the task of bringing interesting things your way by asking the question, "How good can it get?" in an open-ended way, you will automatically be looking for--and finding--answers to a question you actually would enjoy knowing the answer to.

One of the reasons I suggest you make asking "How good can it get?" a regular part of your daily life is that scientific evidence suggests that people who envision positive futures are much more likely to experience them. For example, people whose idea of the elderly is that they are respected, strong, healthy and wise tend to end up that way, whereas people whose notion of the elderly is that they are feeble in mind and body become just that as they age. I reference these and other exciting experimental results in my new book, Quantum Jumps: An Extraordinary Science of Happiness and Prosperity, which I enjoyed launching at bookshops in the Pacific northwest this past month. What made this book tour so much fun for me was getting to spend time with fellow best-selling author, Eva Herr, as we gave talks together in Portland and Seattle. Our common interest and complementary viewpoints regarding consciousness brought us together, and we enjoyed many scintillating conversations before and after our book store talks. Even when little things went wrong, as they inevitably sometimes do, the joy of having a friend to laugh with made every moment wonderful.

And speaking of wonderful, I feel humbled and honored by the positive buzz and enthusiastic reviews Quantum Jumps has received this past month, such as this glowing review from one of my favorite authors, Dr. Larry Dossey:

Quantum Jumps
Quantum Jumps
    "QUANTUM JUMPS is one of the most remarkable books I’ve read in years. It accomplishes what every nonfiction writer strives to do, yet few accomplish: to describe complex ideas in clear language, and ground these ideas in people’s everyday experiences so that they become real. Cynthia Sue Larson is a physicist, but you won’t find any equations in this book. What you will find are astonishing ways in which the wonderland of quantum physics applies to you in everything you think and do. I know of no other book that so gracefully applies the lessons of quantum physics to our life. So, if you want to be happier, more creative, and wiser, you should read this book. I realize this is the promise of half the books being written these days, but QUANTUM JUMPS is different. Because it is grounded in good science and good psychology, it delivers. If you put these principles to work, you may never again lose your car keys, get depressed, or gain weight. I know, I know; I used to be a skeptic too. This is no longer your grandparents’ world. Larson guides us in understanding how our world is different—how modern physics reveals entirely new meanings of past, present, future, causation, free will, and intention. She constructs a world that is intensely responsive to you—your wishes, desires, and choices. By elaborating on quantum jumps, Larson takes quantum weirdness out of the physics lab and puts in the palm of your hand. It used to be fashionable for physicists to deny that the invisible quantum domain had any practical significance in our see-touch-hear-feel world. Those days are gone forever. Recent developments show that key quantum principles such as entanglement and connectedness are relevant to living organisms (aka humans), just as they are important in the invisible world of electrons and photons. How can you take advantage of these developments? That’s what QUANTUM JUMPS is all about. It’s easier than you think. Take a quantum jump and read Larson’s inspiring book!" — Dr. Larry Dossey

One of the main ideas we can all benefit from in Quantum Jumps is that you and I and everything and everyone exists in a superposition of states all the time in our everyday lives. The significance of this realization is that rather than presuming yourself to be weak or tired, for example, you can recognize that you also exist right now in a state of feeling strong, relaxed, and energized. Both of these possible you’s already exist, and it is possible to access other possible realities. Thanks to the fact that quantum behaviors are increasingly being recognized as happening on the macroscopic scale, we can be certain that what happens on the quantum scale does not stay on the quantum scale... but instead is happening all around us everyday.

We witness some of these possible various realities sometimes when we notice someone is alive again whom we’d previously heard had passed away. Such is the case with Nelson Mandela, who so many people recall having died while in prison decades ago, that his particular case is often referred to as the Mandela Effect. Now that Nelson Mandela died this month, many people are wondering how it can be that they so clearly recall his having died decades ago when he was imprisoned in South Africa. I write and video blog about Nelson Mandela Didn't Die in Prison, and Why it Matters, which I very much hope you'll enjoy.

Are you wondering what to get this year for that person who has everything? You just might find the perfect gift for you or someone you love in Ten Books that Can Save the World.

Ten Books that Can Save the World
Here are ten books capable of revolutionizing the way we think, speak, and live our daily lives... which as these books will often further explain gives you the power to change (and save) the world. These books have been selected for being every bit as fun to read as they are transformative. Every book on this list contains big ideas that transform us as we read them by reminding us of our true nature--which is far more than any of our characteristics such as: gender, job title, or role in our family or community. As we embody our fullest sense of inspiration while reading these books, the reading experience becomes extraordinary... and the most amazing, miraculous events can occur! This is a video summary of a blog post at:

Nelson Mandela Didn't Die in Prison... and Why it Matters
If you remember seeing media coverage of Nelson Mandela having died in prison in the 1980s, and you wonder why he's just this month been reported dead again, you're in good company. Mandela is one of the most commonly discussed celebrities who has been seen alive after having been reported dead. When we personally witness disparities between events we remember having happened and what reliable physical evidence suggests has occurred, we might at first feel a sense of dissonance. Fortunately, we need not stay confused, since noticing the differences between our memories and evidence in our current reality allows us to gain valuable direct experience of how malleable reality can truly be. Recent scientific discoveries suggest it's quite likely that both this so-called "Mandela Effect," also known as the "Alive Again" phenomena, are not new, as shamans and spiritual teachers from every continent and age of humankind have described for millenia.

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

People at Work Look Ten Years Older
Calgary, Canada

I have come across your website through Teal Scott's work. I have had a funny thing happen to me recently. We owned a business in a nearby town for 13 years, last August we sold it. We are presently trying to sell our house, so in the interim I have been helping out the new owners. I sincerely feel that it has been at least ten years since I have been in the office. I am aware of everything but seems so long ago that I was there... even dealing with clients it feels like we are all ten years older, not one year! The other owner just expects things to go on as usual, and although I do remember how to do the books, etc., they keep saying, "Oh, you remember how to do all this." I do, but in the same moment, it seems like so much time has passed. The clients do not really seem like they have changed at all, and look somewhat older, but not ten years older. It is only me that feels this way.  I had never expected to be working back there, and am supposed to be retired. Maybe that has something to do with it. But in a way, everything seems like it was so long ago that I was there last--I have to keep reminding myself that it has only been a year. I cannot get over this feeling, and really feel disoriented. I can also totally relate to misplacing something and going back to see it sitting where I looked before. Very interesting. Thanks and keep up the good work!

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for writing to me about feeling like it's been ten years since you sold your business, although only one calendar year has actually passed. I have heard reports from people noticing other people suddenly looking a great deal older, and it seems to be possibly indicative of moving from one universe of possibility into another. In most of these reports that I've heard so far, just one person has been noticed to seem a fair bit older, not groups of people. This really is quite fascinating!


Billy Graham is Alive?!?

 I had a huge reality shift the other day. I saw something in the news about Billy Graham being ill, but in fact alive. WTF? I remember a few years ago his wife passing away, and then finally Mr. Graham passing, and thinking to myself, "Now Franklin Graham is truly alone in this," and then I see this news story. I have had several reality shifts happen, but something this major is really crazy when it happens. Anybody else remember that Billy Graham died? Also, as an aside, I am actually now living with family that I wanted to return to, but there are several events in their lives that differ from events as I remember them--including several unaccounted for holes of events that we have discussed. It's so strange, but I've come to expect these things now.

Note from Cynthia: I really appreciate your sharing the aspect of family members and close friends having very different recollections of the past. I cite references about this phenomenon as well as well-documented scientific studies into so-called "Flashbulb Memories" when people remember when and where they were and what they were doing at the time of a historic incident (such as Kennedy's death, or the space shuttle crash). Intriguingly, a majority of people recall very different memories of what really happened than what their own hand-written accounts describe... and than what family members recall of their childhoods, for example. It seems we are noticing the kinds of alternate histories physicists would expect us to be seeing from time to time, and once we've factored out things like filtered sharing (to protect someone who used to be depressed), we're left with some truly amazing different accounts of "what really happened." I became aware of family memories being very different in the 1970's when my parents and sister and I visited wood-carvers on Dahl Lake in Kashmir, India. My parents purchased beautiful wooden coffee tables, desk and chair and I saw my parents promise the wood carvers that when we returned home and the furniture was shipped to us and reassembled, and fitted with custom made glass table tops and installed in the new home we were building, my parents would take photos of the desk and chair in the new library, and the coffee tables in the living room, and send them back to the wood carvers. It took a while for the furniture to be shipped to California, and for it to be assembled, and for our new home to be finished... but when all these things were complete, I asked my parents, "When will we be taking the photographs?" My parents replied, "What photographs?" I was stunned that they didn't seem to know, so I explained, "You know--the pictures we promised we'd take once the furniture was assembled and placed in our new home." My parents looked at me like they had absolutely no idea what I was talking about. I was only about ten years old when I'd heard them make this promise, and at that point in my life, I was not prone to imagining things like this all on my own, nor would I have had any reason to fabricate such a recollection. Just as certain as I was that my parents had made this promise, my parents were certain they'd never before heard such a thing. I described all the details I recalled of the time they'd made this promise, yet there was no look of recognition or dawning awareness whatsoever. It was as if I'd experienced a completely different reality than my Mom and Dad. We really and truly are in the Quantum Age now, since we've formally arrived at a time as of September 2013 when macroscopic scale quantum computers are working in probabilistic states, akin to Schrodinger's cat being simultaneously alive and dead at the same time. We are now in a period of time in which we must start formally appreciating that we will have memories of alternate histories, since quantum phenomena is occurring in our everyday lives.

Missing Eye Cup Reappears
Pacific northwest, USA

Just last night I forgot that a few months ago I had looked unsuccessfully in a nearly empty drawer for an eye cup, so last night I looked there again and found it. Having not found it a few months ago I looked at a few stores to replicate my old one and had no success there, so had given up on it. The most fun of this event for me is that had I not forgotten that I had already checked where I had last seen it, and this without success, I would not have checked again. For as I said, it is a mostly empty drawer--so not the kind of situation where one can rummage and rummage through expecting something to turn up in another handful.

Note from Cynthia: This is a most remarkable reality shift! I'm so amazed when something long missing (for several months or more) returns as if it's never been away... or as if the elves or pixies finally brought it back. I find it interesting that in the case of the missing eye cup, you'd been unable to find a replacement in all the time it went missing and was away... so clearly you were very appreciative to see it return!


(5) Questions and Answers

Hi Cynthia
I read your internet article and would like to try this quantum jumping. I believe I have already done it through visualization and would like to learn how to apply it more widely in my life. Do you have any course or tutorial recommendations you can share that ate not too costly?
Best Regards
-- Gwen

Dear Gwen,
The main information I have to provide is available in my Quantum Jumps book or ebook, available through my realityshifters web site and amazon for paperback editions, and amazon, barnes and noble and iTunes for ebook versions. The book contains tips, techniques, real-life examples and an entire section of Q&A that can help with a variety of questions.  Here's the link at amazon, where you can see some reviews and look inside the book:
I hope this helps!
lots of love,
-- Cynthia

Hi Cynthia,
Do you think reality shifts are something that happen all the time, people just don't realize them? How can they be controlled in a safe way? And can you tell me a few things that happened during your kundalini awakening? Thanks.
-- Christine

Hi, Christine!
Yes, I feel reality shifts are happening around us most all the time. People tend to see what they are prepared to comprehend, and often miss things they don't expect to see, or that don't easily fit into their mental constructs. My favorite way to help ensure our reality shift experiences are good ones is to genuinely intend to see how good things can get, no matter how challenging or even impossible any given situation may appear. My kundalini awakening felt at times like I was constantly awake within a dream--that everything around me was a dream, whether I was asleep or awake. I saw things I knew were not part of ordinary consensus reality, such as a dragon licking my arm as I rested lying down in my bed, and I saw--and felt--my arm hoisted up in the air by the dragon's tongue, after which it fell back down along my side. For a couple of weeks during this time of lucid dreams, astral travel, and 360 degree "inner" vision I was awakening every night at exactly 1:11 am, 2:22 am, 3:33 am, 4:44 am, and 5:55 am. 
lots of love,
-- Cynthia

Hi Cynthia,
I've been reading and listening a ton the past couple of days and I am very interested in bringing the best into life as possible, but I have apprehension of dabbling in where it might get dangerous. Is that possible? I am not doing a kundalini awakening or anything, but I want to get into meditation, bringing everything good into all aspects of my life,and use the law of attraction. I've never meditated and would love to know the best way to start it up! Do you need to be in a meditative state to Quantum jump?
-- Christine

Aura Healing Meditations
Hi, Christine!
We make quantum jumps all the time, and yes, meditative states are necessary. I meditate a lot, which along with support from mentors and friends enables me to undergo challenging experiences. Being in a daydream state, or experiencing a quiet moment between activities can be enough of a meditation by which to make a leap to suddenly feeling inspired to take action, and this is a kind of quantum jump most everyone has experienced in their lives. I recommend taking time each day to clear your mind and just experience your being-ness. If you find yourself thinking thoughts, practice observing them and clearing them away. See if you can get to an experience of no-thought. There are other kinds of meditations, too, such as walking meditations, chanting, and paying attention to a mantra, or to breathing. You can also listen to a guided meditation CD, such as my Aura Healing Meditations. You can experience good quantum jumps and reality shifts by consistently and regularly focusing on demanding to find out how good it can get. Ask it as a question, "How good can it get?!" and feel it as a burning desire. We tend to experience what our subconscious mind needs to know and needs to feel, so most all challenging experiences tend to be growth experiences by which we and others can learn and evolve.
lots of love,
-- Cynthia

Understanding the Anomalously Sensitive

Understanding the Anomalously Sensitive Person
by David Ritchey
Understanding Transpersonal Experiencers

Are you... experienced? You or someone you know may be anomalously sensitive if you have experienced: deja vu, synchronicity, telepathy, precognition, psychic dreams, clairvoyance, healing, psychokinesis, contact with spirit guides, out-of-body experiences, past life recall, near-death experiences... or seen UFOs. Why do some people tend to experience these sorts of things, while others do not? Hypnotherapist and psychotherapist David Ritchey became so fascinated by the accounts some clients shared with him who reported having had transpersonal (metaphysical) experiences that he studied these people who he refers to as Anomalously Sensitive Persons. "Understanding the Anomalously Sensitive Person" is important because, though only a minority of the population, these people have important gifts and abilities to share with society, and deserve to be better understood and appreciated, rather than merely dismissed as being "weird." Psychologists examining such sensitives using traditional diagnostic guidebooks, such as the DSM, have often been confused when they've found these individuals are often diagnosable with eight or more simultaneous valid psychological and medical conditions! Clearly there is something more going on than traditional psychology has understood. Rather than pathologizing what appear to be a range of human experiences with a history going back thousands of years, Ritchey provides us with a delightful overview of systematic scientific research that helps us identify common traits of sensitive people. I particularly enjoy the illustrations found throughout this meaty yet slim volume, and the way the book is organized into fascinating sections that stimulate contemplation and discussion. Highly recommended!
