Create Your Best Life!
How Good Can it Get?

Everybody Loves You

      "Life's like a movie.
      Write your own ending
      keep believing, keep pretending."
      -- Jim Henson

A friend of mine told me recently how she'd watched a Sunday morning spiritual television show with a man proclaiming that since "nobody likes you anyhow," it's therefore best to be self-motivated and learn to accept yourself for who you truly are. While my friend found the premise of the sermon quite amusing, she ended up feeling jinxed by inexplicable bad luck the next day. Even things that had been going quite well suddenly weren't. While my friend knew that the words "nobody likes you anyhow" were just words that were intended to help people let go of a need to find approval from others, her subconscious had taken them to be the literal truth, and the world began to present evidence of that stark new reality.

Coincidentally, I'd just been reading about a study conducted on how leaders affect groups that describes how swiftly and noticeably negative thoughts tend to spread from one person to another, and how getting caught up in another's negativity is hard-wired, unconscious and powerful. Fortunately, when we are aware of what is happening and do something that cheers ourselves up, we can pull ourselves back on track again.

As this study points out, taking regular check points on how you are feeling is one of the best things you can do to care for yourself emotionally and energetically. When you notice yourself feeling less than enthusiastic and delighted with life, take some time to do things that lift your spirits. If you feel better after meditation, shopping, singing, dancing, drawing, or exercise then take time to do what brings you back up again! This process is one of writing the script of your life, so you take a more proactive role in how the story of your life unfolds.

One of my personal favorite affirmations to think or say to myself along with How good can it get? is, "Everybody loves me!" When I give this idea careful consideration, I realize that on the spirit level it's completely true; everyone really does love me! The idea that everyone is out to shower blessings of love upon oneself is known as pronoia, and it's been noted by those who maintain a pronoid attitude toward life that the most amazing and wonderful things will happen. People who I might have considered hostile turn out to be much friendlier than I would ever have thought, and strangers offer me priceless support, kind words, smiles and helpful advice.

For a completely new kind of day that overflows with lots of pleasant surprises... please repeat after me:
    Everybody loves me!
    They want to help me experience
    everything that delights me most!
    At this very moment, the universe is conspiring
    to bring to me exactly what I most love and enjoy!
When this becomes your regular view of the world, you will be amazed at how helpful, supportive, caring and enjoyable all the people in your life become.

Wishing you all the best that love and life have to offer,

Don't Bring Me Down
Negative Moods Are Highly Infectious, But You Can Protect Yourself

The Kansas City Star
2005, December 22
The effect is far from imaginary. In the last five years, a growing body of psychological research -- much of it focused on the emotionally negative or positive boss -- is bearing out the power one individual's mood can have on others. "It is one of the most robust phenomena I have ever seen," said University of New Hampshire researcher Richard Saavedra. "And it's all unconscious." Fortunately, just as Bob Cratchit and Cindy Lou Who refused to let Scrooge or the Grinch dampen their spirits, modern and age-old strategies can combat the draw of your own Debbie Downer.

Just Like Heaven

Reality Shifting Films
What do movies and TV shows like 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

Yakima, Washington

I recently lost my car keys. When I looked to see if I could find them, I looked everywhere I could think to look, but I swear they were nowhere to be found. I looked in the car, and my husband looked in the car... no keys. I tore my purse apart... and still no keys. I usually hang my keys on a hook in the kitchen, but could not remember if I had done that on that day or not. After looking everywhere, we just gave up. I said to my guides, "Let them show up for me," then I told my hubbie, "Maybe you can make another set for me," and he agreed.

I went to the other room to do some work on a computer, and he yelled to me from the kitchen, "Come. You have got to see this!" I came to see what he was yelling about, and looked at him as he pointed at the direction of the living room. His eyes were white and he looked stone cold. I followed his gaze to look up on a hook that was put there for a plant to hang on... and there were my keys, hanging on the ceiling. I told them to return to me, and they did, in a most unusual way!

What I'd like to know is whether I made this happen, or was there an entity there who heard me and put the keys in such a strange place?

In its infinite wisdom, the Universe has seen fit to throw a few life lessons my way. This coaching is taking the form of shifting reality, of course!

A while ago, my youngest son, Michael, used the last tissue in the box, so we told him to get another box of tissues from the case. We are an ice rink family, and go through a lot of tissues, so we always keep a case on the same shelf in the pantry. This time, Michael couldn't find the tissues, so my husband, Mike, looked for a box... and he couldn't find them either. Feeling a little frustrated, I went to look. This whole time, I was wondering how they could possibly miss this huge case containing precisely 9 boxes of tissues, especially since it's been in this exact location for over 16 months now and they all know where it is. Well, to my extreme amazement, and annoyance, it wasn't there. OK, I'm always cleaning the house and waging a constant battle against clutter; maybe I moved the tissues somewhere and forgot that I did it. So Mike and I then went right through the whole house, looking in cupboards and closets, under sinks and over clothing racks. The case of tissues, which we both knew was, in recent times, there on that pantry shelf, was no where to be found so what do I do? I add a case of tissues to my Costco list!

The next morning, in my usual style, I carried my broom, mop and bucket, some Murphy's soap, and a swiffer duster upstairs to do my normal ritual of dusting the rooms and a quick sweep and mop down. I went through the rooms, wiped up the bathroom, opened the linen closet, moved the couple of things that were on the floor out, swept and mopped it, moved the things back in. Nothing unusual or abnormal was noted. Until a couple of hours later that is, when I went to get a towel out of the linen closet and what should be sitting on the floor that I had mopped only a couple of hours before? Yes! The missing box of tissues! Note to self, scratch 'case of tissues' off the Costco list.

I'm an avid sewer, not like I have a choice really, since figure skating dresses for my daughter start at around a hundred bucks a pop, and for what? A leotard with a fluff of material attached that is supposed to pass for a skirt. Let's not even get into the price of boys costumes here. Knowing if I want to keep my children dressed properly for the rink that I would have to take up the material and needle and get busy, I bravely started purchasing stretchy material and I got busy. A couple of days after the tissues so agreeably decided to reappear, I was sitting at my sewing machine, cussing because I had sewn on a skirt lopsided and it would have to be taken off and re-sewn. Oh! But hark! What is that noise? Why, it was the welcome distraction of someone popping up on MSN. Hopefully someone that I would want to talk to. I went and checked, and it was Charles OK, so he's fun to talk to. I still have to take this skirt off of the dress, so, I'll just take that and the seam ripper with me to the computer and waste a bit of time in idle chit chat for a while. Of course, Charles started talking about interesting stuff, so not much seam ripping managed to get done, but you know, the little brush on the end of the seam ripper does make an interesting little pattern when you push it down onto the desk and sort of spin the tool around and watch all the bristles splaying out, and guess what? If you sort of plop it down a little harder, then the bristles splay out to the front and back and look even more interesting. Yeah, I'm idle and get bored fast and I've also heard all the jokes about small things entertaining small minds. One thing though. When you decide to forcefully plunk a brush down onto the desk, you might want to take care, each time, which end you are setting down. The last time I did this, it was the seam ripper end that made contact with the desk, and to my great sorrow -- as this is one of my favorite tools -- the end snapped off. Well, Charles covered his eyes I'm sure as I began to wah and wail on MSN about my 'very bestest tool' being broken. He suggested that I quickly gather up the broken pieces of seam ripper and put them away where I normally did and that when I went to get the seam ripper again that it would be in one piece. So I did, and it was! The seam ripper was whole again, for a couple of seconds, there appeared to be a faint line where the tip had been broken and reattached, but maybe I was just seeing things, because when I turned the tool back to that side again, it wasn't there. One interesting thing to note here, a while later when I told Mike about this experience, his reaction was to tell me that this wasn't possible and didn't happen. Instantaneously, I got the feeling that he was right, and that I had just dreamt that this happened. Luckily, I had written an email to Cynthia about this, and Charles had also posted to the Reality Shifters group about it. Otherwise, I'm sure that maybe I would have just passed it off as a dream, like something that didn't really happen.

Now, back to my joy of sewing yesterday, I had worked all night and was sleep deprived. Tuesday nights are figure skating nights though, and I had a few projects that it was imperative that I finish up. With great trepidation, and toothpicks to prop my eyes open. Ok, not really but I was that tired. I sat at the machine most of the day and plowed my way through two dresses that needed to be finished, two pairs of boys pants that needed straps for the bottoms, 3 hair scrunchies, and a dress that needed to be shortened. I was working on the Velcro for the pant straps when my machine decided to become stop being co-operative. Within minutes, I snapped two needles and had almost ruined the elastic a couple of times with thread snarls. I couldn't figure out what was going wrong. Amidst great frustration, it was time for try number three with one of my more expensive machine needles. About 3 stitches in, that needle decided to snap too. Well, I said some choice words, slammed my hands down on the table, and pulled the front compartment off the machine to get yet another needle. When I removed the front, I noticed that the needle, which was definitely broken seconds before, was no longer snapped off. It had sort of fixed its self right in front of my eyes. I can only describe what I saw as sort of a blurring around the needle, and then it was whole. It happened in an instant, fast enough that I wasn't sure of what I was actually seeing. OK, so that worked for me! It was a more expensive needle, and hey, it was still useable. Just had to open the flap so I could pull up the thread on the bobbin. That's when the absolute weirdness happened. The bobbin case was out of the holder, and the whole mechanism had come apart. Even the two arms that hold the machinery in place and swung open -- not sure how that is possible -- but hey, easy enough to put back together right?

So what's it all about? Well, after thinking on it for a while, I've figured out that it's about frustration. My son was frustrated that he had to go get a new box of tissues as it took away time from his TV show. Then my husband was frustrated that our son couldn't find the case of tissues that were always kept in an obvious location. Then I was annoyed that neither of them could find the case of tissues. As for the seam ripper, I really didn't want to spend the time fixing that dress again. I would much rather be moving on to another project or wasting time chatting on MSN. The sewing machine needles, well, I had left too much to the last minute, and I was feeling very overwhelmed. Time was of the essence, I needed to get this stuff done. Last thing I needed was for threads to be tangling and needles to be snapping. It's important that I do not give into patience and frustration. If I believe 'I'm never going to finish the dress', then I'll create scenarios in which it becomes impossible for me to do so. If I curse the sewing machine, it won't work properly. Same with my children, if I don't see them as capable of finding a box of tissues on their own -- and with my youngest, we do baby him quite a bit -- then they won't find them. We so obviously create every aspect of the reality we live in. Believe, love, live and work on leaving frustration and can't do it behind.

So, I guess the only thing left is those dishes on my counter. I know I can do it, make them shimmer into being done? LOL, OK, so maybe not this time!

(5) Reality Shifters Q & A

Q: You say we should listen to our hearts, but if our hearts & head are in direct conflict with each other what should we do?
-- Dee

A: Dear Dee,
I love your question, because it gets to the core of what I do with my spiritual life coaching! Indeed, many parts of us have many different views... and while we find easy success at times when our hearts and heads and guts are well-aligned, we can find ourselves all tangled up and conflicted when they aren't. My recommendation is to listen to each part of yourself that has a clearly strong sense of definite direction... and then, once you've taken time to listen to the wisdom of your head, heart and gut, you'll have a clear sense of what's really going on. Often, situations in our lives bring up old (sometimes even ancient) unresolved issues, and unless these matters are brought out into the open and clarified, we'll just be seeing the world through the lenses of past experience. So I recommend working with a counselor who can help you listen to all these parts of yourself and assist you in healing yourself.
lots of love,
-- Cynthia

Beyond the Indigo Children

Beyond the Indigo Children
The New Children and the Coming of the Fifth World

by P. M. H. Atwater

Understanding the Architects of the New Earth

While it used to be true that if someone had psychic abilities, they had one particular talent that stood out beyond all the rest, the new "indigo" children (and adults) are much more like Renaissance people, in that they typically have multiple enhanced senses and abilities. PMH Atwater's newest book, BEYOND THE INDIGO CHILDREN, provides the most complete, comprehensive, and clear-headed overview of the phenomenon of the wonderfully irreverent and intuitive "new children" born since 1982. Atwater clears the fog of confusion and hype surrounding indigo kids, crystal kids, super-psychic kids and AIDS kids as she presents visionary views of how these children are already making a positive difference, and what's about to come next. BEYOND THE INDIGO CHILDREN contains fascinating stories from children of the new generations that demonstrate the depth and breadth of their talents, needs and motivations. While many of the new kids remember their births and previous lives, can see deceased relatives, and know what others are thinking, their true significance on Earth seems to be that they herald a transformation in every aspect of society. Parents and schools are beginning to wonder what to do with these new kids, who are so often dissatisfied with the status quo, and who make demands for increased honesty, accountability and meaningfulness everywhere they go. Atwater shares dozens of practical suggestions for how we may best address the needs of these new children in positive ways that help make their lives better at the same time as they begin to transform our world. For those of us older "new children" who are now in our midlife years, BEYOND THE INDIGO CHILDREN is packed with useful ideas and tips for better utilizing our gifts and better caring for ourselves. We will need to be strong, since Atwater points out that there are many signs that indicate we are living in a time of shifting consciousness as we encounter environmental crises: "The time span of 2013 through 2029 concerns me most. This is when generational statisticians and a percentage of children who underwent near-death experiences say the greatest challenges will occur in our country and around the world, generating anything from 'stirring achievement to apocalyptic tragedy'." Ancient prophecies have foretold that our successful passage through the coming "gateway" of December 21, 2012 depends on the "fifth root race," or the new children. BEYOND THE INDIGO CHILDREN should be required reading for every parent, teacher, therapist, healer, and doctor who works with children, in order to better understand the spirit of the architects who are rebuilding the way humans will exist on planet Earth, and better support the creation of the most positive future for us all. I give this book my highest recommendation.
