How Good Can it Get?
Cynthia Sue LarsonSee Cynthia Sue Larson summarize this RealityShifters on YouTube!
Be Your Own Valentine

You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy.

Be Your Own ValentineBe thine own Valentine!
Valentine's Day has long been a favorite holiday of mine, mostly because I have always adored the idea of having a special day dedicated to the idea of Love. I enjoyed cutting and pasting hand-made Valentines when I was a little girl, and giving them to people I cared about. Valentine's Day is such a marvelous opportunity to tell the world how much you love it... and to let yourself know how much you love you, too! Never mind all the hype about how this day is devoted only to romantic love... the real beauty of having a day to honor Love is that when we stop to think about it, love is everywhere, all around. The key to most fully enjoying Valentine's Day is to be loving toward ourselves... being our own Valentine!

One thing I notice as I get older and wiser is what an enormous difference energy, enthusiasm and attitude makes. It's obvious how much better my days are when I start each day with meditations to clear, harmonize, balance and raise energy to a central core feeling of being the embodiment of love. This feeling of loving oneself is not so much "all about me," as it is about experiencing unconditional loving acceptance and support for oneself. This feeling can become one's regular everyday state of being, even when it feels strange or unfamiliar at first.

I was fortunate growing up to have a mom who frequently asked me the question, "What would make you truly happy today?" Whether or not you are in a romantic relationship, ask yourself, "What would make me truly happy today?" and imagine what you can do to brighten your day. Many of the same acts of kindness we like to do for others are every bit as wonderful when we do them for ourselves... such as thoughtfully making a favorite beverage, finding a favorite book, or going to a special place at sunset. You can even get yourself something whimsical and fun as a special token and reminder of love. Let this Valentine's Day be extra special for yourself this year, and know that when you feel loved by yourself, you are truly brightening the world.

I'm delighted to announce that my fifth book, RealityShifters Guide to High Energy Money, is now available in paperback, Kindle, and ebook editions! Finally all my best meditations, reality shift stories and summaries of prosperity research can be found in one book designed to inspire you to thoroughly enjoy finding, keeping, and growing your finances. This is where the money magic all begins... check it out and look inside the book today!

Thank you so much for helping me towards this level of consciousness! I keep it a little bit short because I really have to / want to stay in this momentum, this feeling of peace and love... although you represent this energy as well! I feel so much love around me, as if the reading made / makes me more connected and aware of the importance to be thankful that the spirits guide me, protect me and let me grow both spiritually and as a human being!

Katrina introduces me in her web site's first interview, "Welcome to the inaugural Katrina Dreamer interview!

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

The Disappearing and Reappearing Credit Card
Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA

My wife and I were out doing errands and our last stop was for groceries. Char didn't have her credit card, so I handed her mine. She was concerned about having to produce ID; I told her they never check anyway. As we predicted, there was no hassle at the checkout: she handed me my credit card back, and I distinctly remember putting it in my shirt pocket.

We got home and were both concerned that our dog be let out immediately as we were gone a long time, so the first order of business was getting her out side. As I walked in the house I removed both my credit card and wallet and set both on the counter (with the intention of rejoining one in the other after dog duty), the credit card was on top of the wallet. After she did her business I went back to the counter with the intention of putting my credit card back in the wallet and returning the wallet to my rear pants pocket. However I saw that the credit card was no longer on top of the wallet. I called out to my wife and asked if she had taken it (keep in mind it had literally been less than a minute since I put the credit card and wallet together on the counter) she said no. From that moment on and for the next hour we looked for the credit card without success. Eventually, in frustration, we gave up. We both agreed that this was extremely weird but kind of weird-fun. Then a few weeks later I was looking in our business card organizer for the card of a handy man, when there in front of me was my cc, the very one I thought slipped permanently into another dimension. We were both amazed because we had both been through that organizer several times in our initial search for that stupid cc. There simply is no explanation for what happened ... How irritating and exhilarating!

The last part of this recounting was when I actually found the card. As I said we wanted to get the contact information of our favorite handy man which required a quick perusal through the business card organizer. As I opened the drawer where it is kept I was very aware of an expectation that the credit card would somehow show up in the card organizer. It was a kind of giddy, unrealistic expectation the kind I had as a kid playing hide and go seek and it was my turn to be “it”. To my great surprise there that little bugger was. Since this has happened I have developed a suspicion that “reality” is full of discontinuities due to a deep misunderstanding of the nature of reality (if there is such a thing).

Note from Cynthia: This story reminds me of times I've lost important things (money, jewelry, keys) and seen them reappear when being in precisely this state of mind you state so eloquently as being like playing hide and seek. Rather than feeling freaked out that something essential is missing, I've just felt a buzz of anticipation that I'll be seeing it sometime soon... and it'll be a wonderful surprise when I do. And yes, the fact that it works to be in such a state of mind and then witness something appear where it definitely hadn't been before is truly astounding! Thanks so much for sharing your experience!


My Professor & His Car Vanish
Katrina Dreamer

I wanted to write to you about an experience I had this morning. I know you'll understand it (or at least recognize that it must have been a reality shift).

I was driving to work at JFK. I saw one of my former professors, who I assumed was on his way to JFK too. He drives a blue Ford station wagon. There was one car between us, an SUV. I watched him turn left onto Contra Costa Blvd and continue on to the left turn at Ellinwood. He was the first car at the left turn light, then the SUV, then me. But when the light turned green, there was a silver car instead. My professor was nowhere to be found. There was no other car there before... it's not like he decided to leave the turn lane and go straight. I know this because the SUV didn't move up to fill the space that would have been left had my professor left the turn lane to go straight.

The silver car turned right into a shopping complex. When I arrived at work, my professors car was nowhere in the parking lot. It's like he just wasn't there anymore. Is this a case of me seeing him for a reason...almost hallucinating him there? Or is it some kind of bilocation? Where did that silver car come from? Any thoughts?

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing this experience with me! This kind of reality shift reminds me of some I've had where I've been driving and observed cars in my rear view mirror that had been behind me are suddenly gone, when there were no exits or off-ramps, and nowhere for them to have gone.... and also various times when I've seen people literally vanish before my eyes, as I describe in my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World. From what you describe, it sounds to me like you moved from one reality in which you saw your former professor's car into a reality where a silver car was there instead. This kind of discontinuity in reality is often the way reality shifts are observed... where something is there one moment (a broken bone, a cut, a person, a car)... and gone the next. Instantaneous spontaneous remission of disease and injury is another area where these kinds of discontinuous shifts in reality are most remarkable.  As far as the "why" of this particular shift occurring... you might have a clue based in thoughts and feelings you had at the time... or perhaps we'll never know. Sometimes just witnessing such a shift in reality seems to be the point of the whole event. 

(5) Reality Shifting Q and A / Mail Bag

Hi Cynthia,
I found your email on a review from amazon. Hope you don't mind my writing. In it you mention "changing the past"... I'm really interested in this, as a couple of tragedies ruined my life. Could you give me some info on it, please? Thanks in advance.
Best wishes,

Dearest Emi,
Thanks so much for writing! Yes, it's possible to change the past... and in rather small (yet important) ways, we do this all the time, through our attitude toward events of our pasts. I recently gave made a presentation at a conference on this topic, and you can read my powerpoint slides from this talk posted at:
Listening to Future Selves, Reviewing Our Pasts
lots of love,

Voices Out of Stone

Voices Out of Stone:
Magic and Mystery in Megalithic Brittany

by Natasha Hoffman and Carolyn North
Connecting to Spirit & Earth through Carnac Standing Stones

Voices Out of Stone is my favorite kind of travel guide, as it shares both personal experiences and a fascinating history of ancient mysterious sacred sites. The standing stones of Carnac are the central focus of this book, and they are written about intimately by author Carolyn North and with an overview as to global significance by Natasha Hoffman. Readers who enjoy books by Hamish Miller such as The Sun and the Serpent will love Voices Out of Stone for the way it invites us to open all our senses and more fully experience the deepest levels of meaning of the mystic standing stones of Brittany. I love the sketches and descriptions of various stone alignments, dolmens and menhirs in this book, and am particularly delighted by tales of visiting some sites at times when they could be enjoyed in solitude... or with a traveling companion equally devoted to listening to hidden wisdom of the stones. Voices Out of Stone truly shines when describing how Carolyn North became something of a reluctant yet highly sought after healer during her visit to Carnac, and the ways these and other sacred stones transformed Carolyn's view of health, personal growth, and transformation. Reading this book graces me with something akin to the quiet, poetic beauty of the sacred sites themselves. I felt sad coming to the last pages and the realization that my journey to Carnac was coming to an end... for like a vacation to Carnac, Voices Out of Stone transports me to magical realms. I highly recommend Voices Out of Stone to all who love connecting to nature and Earth, to anyone intrigued by ancient sacred sites, and to those interested in planning a trip to Brittany, France.

Ada Legend of a Healer

Ada: Legend of a Healer
by R.A. McDonald
Heroic Healer's Engaging Story

There's a lot to love in this fast-paced novel about a young teenage girl whose healing abilities provide her with both tremendous opportunities and challenges, as she embarks on a quest to track down her mother. Ada's journey has a sense of urgency to it, as she breaks free from her aunt's care to take off from Canada to France, keeping a low profile so as to not attract attention of those who seek to harness Ada's healing powers greedily for their own. While much of Ada's antisocial behavior at first seems a bit unusual, her history of having been moved from foster home to foster home help explain why she has learned to look after herself in a world where others seldom truly look after her. This book's interesting illustrations and simple vocabulary make it ideal for young readers who feel different than their peers. Ada is an empowering heroine who rises to meet any and all setbacks. Ada's avid interest and dedicated commitment to learning new skills set an excellent example of a young woman who is smart, strong, and compassionate. Many of Ada's deepest conflicts have to do with coming to terms with how she sees herself in relation to others in the world, as she frequently wonders about just how responsible she ought to be when blessed as she is with the power to heal anyone of any ailment. I know a book is wonderful when I read it straight through, and have trouble putting it down, and Ada: Legend of a Healer is a page-turner! This book deeply touches my heart, as it addresses feelings that a young woman would have of wondering how best to fit into a world full of people who would seek to possess or control those who have gifts to heal. This story has such a strong ring of truth to it that I frequently found myself feeling that this is a true story about a girl I'd really love to meet.
