RealityShifters - January 2000
Happy New Year, and welcome to RealityShifters -- the monthly newsletter
that helps you shift reality so all your favorite dreams can come true!
Reality shifts are the changes we create with our thoughts and feelings
that manifest as objects appearing, disappearing, transforming and
transporting... as well as changes in the way we experience time. The
Reality Shifts web site discusses the physical and spiritual principles
behind the change points at the source of synchronicity, coincidence, and
answered wishes and prayers:
I am grateful that Y2K came and went without major disruptions to our way
of life, and that this year heralds a change in the way we think about time
as we figure out what to call this new decade. I celebrated this New
Year's by honoring Earth's 4.6 billion years of existence with a few close
friends, and by contemplating how much has changed on Earth in the brief
humans have occupied this beautiful planet. May we continue to find peace
in these times of ever accelerating change.
Spoon & Fork Bending
A Child Can Do It!
Ever since I met Uri Geller and saw him bend one of my sterling silver
table spoons by gently rubbing the spoon with his fingers, I've intended to
have a spoon-bending party. My first spoon and fork-bending party was held
in December 1999 with a small group of friends -- and we were all delighted
that two of us (children) were able to bend their sterling silver forks!
My older daughter achieved remarkable results by first rubbing her fork
gently until she could feel it was getting "tingly and warm", and then
placing the fork atop her right wrist as she rested her right arm on the
armrest of her chair, waiting calmly and expectantly for her fork to bend.
Ten of us watched as her fork gradually drooped down to form-fit her wrist.
She didn't push or pull the fork at all as it rested on top of her wrist...
it looked like it simply melted! She later told us that she had wanted the
fork to become a bracelet, and that she couldn't really see that it was
bending as it bent... but she did keep thinking about how much she really
wanted it to bend and become a bracelet. I was fascinated with this
creative way to bend a fork. I'd never heard of anyone letting a spoon or
fork "melt" around their wrist, and she made it look so simple, easy and
My first big attempt at spoon bending and twisting didn't give me any
spectacular results, but I will keep trying it again until I see some
results! I've found that the key to success in reality shifting is to
attain the right kind of energized, relaxed expectancy... and I think the
biggest blocks to witnessing reality shifts as they occur is societal
conditioning that "such a thing isn't possible". I need to release my
expectancy that spoons and forks always retain their original shape. It's
been helpful to me to see Uri Geller and my daughter and friends bending
silverware; these vivid demonstrations inspire me to keep
Spoon and fork bending are wonderful examples of how reality can shift in
obvious macroscopic ways that we can clearly see. Young children are much
more open-minded about expecting spoons and forks to bend and twist with
thought and gentle touch... so if you're thinking it sounds like fun to
host a spoon bending party, be sure to invite young children. It helps to
offer a wide selection of silverware (or any firm, metal objects) for spoon
and fork benders to choose amongst, and it also helps to request that
everyone's attention be focused on one individual's spoon or fork bending
at a time.
Reality Shifting Exercise:
Look Quickly Behind You to the Left
I've been taking Feldenkreis lessons to retrain my body's nervous and
skeletal systems for the last few months, and I've noticed wonderful
improvements in my posture, poise, and flexibility. Feldenkreis is a kind
of gentle body work in which a trained practioner moves parts of your body
so your body can relearn how it is capable of moving. One of my favorite
ways to explain what Feldenkreis does for me that's different from other
kinds of body work, is to ask people to quickly look behind and to the
Take a moment now and do this yourself... look very quickly behind you to
the left. Notice what you do when you look behind you.. notice what parts
of your body move.
The interesting thing that you may have noticed just now is that you
probably only turned your head and neck when you looked quickly behind you
to the left.
When I ask a child to look quickly behind and to the left, he will more
likely turn his whole body... not just his neck and head. This
the way children are born with fluidity of motion to experience the world
more fully... and as we grow up, we gradually limit our experience of the
world by limiting our degree of movement.
Just as Feldenkrais uses gentle movements of the body to help the body
"relearn" how to move and what is actually possible for it to do, we can
gentle movements of our thoughts to relearn how we perceive reality. We
regain fluidity of perception in similar fashion, by gently exercising our
minds in every possible way they can move. I've noticed I grow taller by
much as an inch in the one hour Feldenkreis lessons I take... so I know
first-hand that we can all start small and grow tall!
