How Good Can it Get?

Start a New Awareness Routine

"There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing that you are not the voice of the mind - you are the one who hears it."
― Michael Singer, The Untethered Soul

Early this month, I ventured out in the early morning rain to make the trek to my local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) within days of my drivers license’s expiration. Self-testing my vision with one eye at a time, I ensured I’d be able to pass the vision test. I chose a pretty dress to wear and wore a coat that kept my hair dry and hopefully frizz-free, since I’ll most likely be graced with this new photo on my drivers license for many years.

I was relieved to find that once I arrived at the DMV, everything proceeded smoothly. I had a great book to read while waiting, the wait time wasn’t very long, and I passed my vision test just fine. When I did encounter technical difficulties attempting to sign my name without simultaneously crossing it out, the DMV employees were patient while I signed my name three times on the electronic signature tablet. Everything went well with having my new photo taken, I was informed I’ll have my new drivers license mailed to me soon, and I was free to go!

Shortly after leaving the DMV, I took a sip of mocha coffee from my travel cup while seated in the front seat of my car, just as my sweetie pointed out a local business whose sign proudly stated, “Ancient Szechuan.” He quipped, “Food so old, nobody even knows what it used to be.” This humorous remark caught me so off guard that I blessed the front of my beautiful dress and a surprisingly large swath of my car’s interior in a liberal spray of mocha coffee as I lost my battle between gulping my coffee down and laughing out loud. What a mess!

I was grateful this incident had occurred after my great DMV photo moment, and then realized that even if this had occurred moments before my next photo ID was taken, what difference would it really make? I’d have a picture taken of me in whatever state and condition I happened to be in, and that would be just fine.

I recognized this incident as being a perfect example of what a difference it makes when I manage to "get over myself," in the sense of getting out of my own way. By not taking the life’s inevitable slings and arrows of outrageous fortune personally, I’m better able to get on with my life purpose and goals. I love to not feel distracted by wayward thoughts of what I’ve just said or done, or obsessions about what mistakes I think have been made, or any other kinds of distracting and ultimately unimportant emotions and thoughts. I know that it is not only possible but a more enjoyable way to live from a sense of awareness of being bigger than my egoic sense of self.

We Can Create New Habits

At this time of year, many people are making New Years resolutions, in hopes to get the best possible start in this brand new year. Some of the people who are most successful at setting and keeping New Years resolutions attribute their success to finding ways to make small changes to their daily routines. A small change in something we do every day can become a new habit, and depending on what kind of activity it is, after a period of time of a few weeks, a couple of months, or (in the case of a new exercise routine) a year—we can truly succeed in having adopted a brand new habit into our daily life.

Becoming Aware of Being the Observer

As Michael Singer points out in his excellent book, The Untethered Soul, "True personal growth is about transcending the part of you that is not okay and needs protection." When we learn to step back from our thoughts and feelings to the point of recognizing that we are not our thoughts and feelings, but rather the observer who is experiencing those thoughts and feelings, a magical "Aha!" moment of epiphany occurs.

Since learning to identify with the "observer" awareness can be the single biggest change any of us can make in our lives, we can make room in our daily schedule for a few minutes of meditation time. Take a look at your daily patterns, and see where you might be able to dedicate a few minutes on a regular basis purely to noting whatever you are thinking and whatever you are feeling—and simply observing that you are not those thoughts and feelings, but rather you are the one observing those thoughts and feelings. From such a vantage point, you can thus choose from a vast assortment of possible responses what kind of persona, character, words and actions you’ll adopt.

Happy New Year! The New Year is a marvelous time to tune in to your life purpose, and get into the groove of your own unique optimal flow with a life coaching session.

Experience the Wonders of Quantum Logic in the New Quantum Age
At this dawn of the new Quantum Age, with the advent of new quantum computers, a paradigm shift in what we consider "logical" is underway. In the 1860s, Boolean logic provided the structural framework by which classical computers envisioned by Charles Babbage could be operated in accordance with ideas of materialistic determinism. The notions of reducing all statements to being either true or false, working through problems and possibilities with truth tables, and ignoring the "excluded middle," are central to Boolean logic and classical computers of the last hundred years--yet inadequate for operating quantum computers in the future. New findings from the fields of cognitive science and quantum information theory suggest that our previous idea of what is "logical" has been overly simplified. There is merely a special case of the fundamental quantum logic that is now being found to be the dominant fundamental logic of the natural world. Unlike classical Boolean logic gates, quantum logic gates allow for forward and backward movement through time, with allowances for interconnectedness through entanglement, and with the requirement that every finite system contains infinite amounts of information. Examples of ways that human cognition appears to operate in accordance with quantum logic will be provided, along with numerous other examples of primacy of quantum logic in the natural world.

JohnJoe McFadden

Life on the Edge with JohnJoe McFadden
Cynthia Sue Larson talks with Dr. Johnjoe McFadden about his most recent book, “Life on the Edge: The Coming of Age of Quantum Biology,” and exciting developments on the front lines of quantum biological research. How do migrating birds know where to go? How do we smell the scent of a rose? How do our genes copy themselves with such precision? McFadden reveals how quantum mechanics plays an integral role in understanding all of these mysteries, while sharing what most inspires him about the revolutionary new field of quantum biology. Johnjoe McFadden is a professor of molecular genetics at the University of Surrey, and the editor of several leading textbooks. For over a decade, he has specialized in examining tuberculosis and meningitis, inventing the first successful molecular test for the latter. He is the author of Quantum Evolution, and co-author of Human Nature: Fact and Fiction, and Life on the Edge.

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Shirley Stelfox
Shirley Stelfax Dies Twice?
Bicester, Oxfordshire, UK

I appreciate you must get a lot of these emails but I can honestly say I clearly remember reading and seeing on the tv that this particular actress died 10 years ago. I am not imagining it because she was much younger and played a femme fatale chasing the vicar in a smash British comedy. She was so funny—that is why she was publicly mourned in the press on the previous occasion? Yet here we are reading about her death (again). I remember the previous obituary; in that reality she died of the same disease: breast cancer. However, in that reality the press described her role as Rose in a British smash hit comedy, Keeping Up Appearances—she did just the one series. So between 1990 - 2000 was when she left the earth plane on that timeline.

Note from Cynthia: Wow, this alive again story is another doozy! Thank you so much for letting me know that you'd seen reputable reports of actress Shirley Stelfox having died some ten years ago. Yes, I see that according to the imdb website, she's now passed away at age 74 on December 7th, 2015. I really appreciate your sharing these recollections with me, and I'm sure your experiences will "ring a bell" for someone else! All these alive again deaths get me to thinking of Mark Twain's famous quote, The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." One starts to see how such rumors can get started, when some people literally have seen reliable obituary notices!


Mysterious Escape from a Horrible Wreck
Huntsville, Alabama, USA

A couple of years ago I had dropped my daughter off at school and was driving to my job at the Marshall Space Flight Center on the Redstone Arsenal just south of Huntsville, Alabama. If you go to Google Earth, you can find the subject intersection by searching for Marshall Space Flight Center, AL. Click on Building 4200 and scan to the right (East), and you will find it. I stopped at a red light at the intersection of Marshall Road (which I was on) and Toftoy Throughway, and waited for it to change. My light changed and the traffic in the turn lane to my right stopped pouring through the intersection—and there was a car well up the road approaching on Toftoy, but it did not appear that close—and I of course thought it would stop, so I proceeded into the intersection. I was driving a big long Dodge Caravan, and just happened to look to my right to see a yellow car speeding at me just entering the intersection right out my passenger window! At that instant, the car had not even started to slow down. I stomped on the gas pedal. In my mind's eye, I was in a horrific crash with all the terrible sights and sounds of metal crushing and glass shattering. Yet all I actually heard was a "pop," and I cleared the intersection. My van was much too long to have cleared out of the way without getting a broadside impact—yet it did not happen. I pulled over into the shoulder as I expected the "pop" I heard was my bumper guard getting torn off. The other car also pulled over. I got out and found only a small tiny scuff mark on my bumper that may have came from the other vehicle—or anything else. I started toward the other vehicle thinking that driver might be hurt; they took off! I don't know how I could have survived a broadside impact from a car coming at me that fast. I don't know how I cleared that intersection without taking that broadside. Was the "pop" I heard the creation of the scuff mark, the sound of an angel pushing me out of the way, or the sound of a quantum jump of me and my entire vehicle? I used to laugh at characters in movies like James Bond who comes close to death dozens of times in the course of a single movie, and still manages to escape. Statically speaking that just don't make sense. Then I got to thinking about my own life. I, too, have narrowly escaped death numerous times. Have there been dozens of funerals for me in other dimensions? All of this has me wondering if dreams I have about a particular alternate timeline might even be true. One other thing. A couple of weeks ago a lotion bottle on my desk just vanished—but not while I was looking at it. What do you think Cynthia?

Note from Cynthia: Thank you so very much for sharing your experiences with me. I've heard from several people who have escaped impending traffic collisions in similarly mysterious fashion, so there is precedence for this kind of quantum jump experience. I agree with you that many people enjoy something akin to the proverbial "nine lives" sometimes attributed to cats, surviving experiences in which they seemed to be facing certain disaster or death. After having heard hundreds such reports from people since I first started reporting and tracking this phenomenon in 1999, it seems clear to me that quantum logic and quantum phenomena are primary in the natural world. I've recently published two papers clarifying this perspective:

Primacy of Quantum Logic in the Natural World
Evidence of Macroscopic Quantum Phenomena and Conscious Reality Selection

Broken Washing Machine Suddenly Began Working
Bournemouth, Dorset, U.K.

Another strange thing that happened in the last couple of months, is that my washing machine broke down—and then righted itself without my intervention—another reality shift I'm assuming, because there can be no other explanation. I remember thinking, "Wouldn't it be great if it righted itself, and I didn't need to call out the repair man/woman"—and then upon re-checking, I found that the problem was no more. It's worked well ever since, and I still feel strange about it and ask myself, "Was I dreaming?" But I know I wasn’t. I think with my experience with the washing machine, when it first stopped working, I tried switching it on and off and various other programs on it and nothing worked. I quickly started feeling negative, frustrated and grumpy at the thought of having to call out the repair people. But instead of dealing with it straight away, I actually left the situation as it was for a couple of days. After that, I thought I must get on with things and arrange for its repair. But before I picked up the phone, I had the thought about it working just fine, and I felt very positive and happy with an expanded sense of wellbeing that went with that. My happy feelings of raised vibration were much stronger than my mind that was telling me I was being unrealistic. I switched on the machine, and it worked perfectly and has done ever since. It’s a modern machine that is less than a year old, so I don’t know if it’s like switching on and off a computer when it plays up—like a reboot.

Note from Cynthia: I'm delighted to hear how your washing machine went from broken to operational without mechanical intervention--that's marvelous! Yes, I do think your experience with the washing machine qualifies as a reality shift story. Even if it does have a computer that reboots after a couple of days, it seems you had tried several things earlier, even switching it off and on again (which is a brilliant thing to do when dealing with some kind of errant computer system). I love how you describe having a positive, happy feeling with expanded sense of wellbeing that triumphed above it's previous breakdown! I just recently had a similar situation whilst enjoying a holiday meal at my parents' home, when I pointed out to my sister that the dishwasher had not properly washed the dishes. My sister and looked at one another with that look of concern one gets upon realizing that this day of all days would not be a good day for it to break down. "Do that thing you do," my sister said quietly to me, and I explained that primarily I hold the thought in mind that the only acceptable possible realities are those in which the dishwasher is running well.

Robert Englund on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in 1984
Lexington, Kentucky, USA

I saw your facebook post on changing the past with Quantum Jumping and thought I'd share a few of my experiences: My dad and I had the "Nelson Mandela Effect", when people think something really happened, but didn't. Both of our experiences had to do with episodes of the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson episodes. My dad will swear that he heard Zsa Zsa Gabor say to Johnny, "Would you like to pet my pussy" and Johnny saying, "Sure, move the cat." Some said that they heard Raquel Welch say it and Johnny saying, "Sure, if you move that damn cat out of the way!" The second could not have happened, because the word "damn" could not be said in the 1960's. Maybe in an alternate reality it COULD be said? I had even heard that producers of the Tonight Show had signed something saying that the show never aired and told the public about it. Now if only Bob Eubanks had thought of that with That Newlywed Game episode! Mine was on November 9, 1984, just five days before my ninth birthday. This memory came back to me a few years back when I was listening to my alpha-theta wave cd and using my Novadreamer. I was watching the show with my dad and went to the bathroom during the commercial break. When I came back, I saw a guy on there, saying, "And then they put this crap on my face" and Johnny sitting there, looking fascinated. I asked my dad who he was, and he said, "Robert Englund, whoever he is!" Robert was talking about his "Freddy" makeup! I have ruled out confusion with another TV show, such as David Letterman. I could see Johnny so clearly sitting behind the desk, and even his expression! The stage and background scenery were just right. Sadly, my dad died on June 9, 2014, so I can't ask him what he saw. I have searched the internet for this, and never found it. Could the CDs and Novadreamer I was using have put me into an alternate timeline for awhile and then sent me back? If I'm going to do that, I'd want to stay there! Some things of mine disappeared lately, and I can't find them anywhere. I know that I would not have thrown or given them away. Earlier this year, I was eating pastel M&M's. I was looking for a sheet in a big wooden drawer and when I pulled it out, M&M's started falling all over the floor. I knew that I had not put them there out of the package; I always wrap up the remainder. Thanks for listening!

Note from Cynthia: I love how you still remember clearly seeing Johnny's expression as he sat behind his desk, talking with Robert Englund. Thanks so much for sharing your experiences with remembering having seen Robert Englund talking with Johnny Carson on a 1984 episode of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson that--in this current reality--never aired. Once you rule out possible confusion regarding having possibly seen Robert Englund talking about wearing globs of facial makeup for his "Freddy" makeup on some other TV interview show--and back in 1984, the only other such show was Late Night with David Letterman--then you've most likely encountered an alternate history aka: reality shift or quantum jump. There is much we can gain by expanding out awareness of our true identity being pure consciousness--pure awareness. From that state of being, we are already connected with our possible past and future selves, and through intention and "tuning" our awareness--much the way you might tune your radio dial to a given frequency to pick up a radio station--we connect to other levels of being and awareness, to other levels of ourself.

James Cromwell
James Cromwell is Alive?!?
New Franklin, Ohio, USA

It has finally happened to me. I've been paying close attention to every report of a timeline shift by you and others, but had to take their word for it—mostly because I didn't have a clear enough memory of reported incidents to clearly recognize it as a legitimate phenomenon—or not. I was on the couch in the living room, browsing some news on my phone, when I saw a post about James Cromwell getting escorted out of some place in NYC. But He's DEAD! I specifically remember this man dying! I am aware of every person who has been in a Star Trek or Star Wars film or show, because those are on my radar in a big way. I was just telling a friend last week that I can't personally vouch for any quantum shift/timeline change until it happens to something in pop culture that I'm specifically watching very closely. And here we go! James Cromwell played Zephram Cochran in Star Trek First Contact. And he was in I, Robot. I REMEMBER him dying and I was upset because I liked him! He died last year, in 2014. Possibly 2013, but definitely within that time frame. Now he's alive. I am absolutely shaking in my chair, and can hardly write. The more I think about this, the more freaked out I feel! I've believed other people's reports, but had not experienced this phenomena directly until last night. It's a scary, amazing feeling!

Note from Cynthia: WOW! Thank you for bringing this news of James Cromwell being alive again to my attention, as I also remember this iconic actor passing away within the past year. Many people may remember him for starring in the movie, Babe, playing the role of the farmer who owns a remarkable pig. I'm glad you explained why this particular alive again experience with alternate histories is extraordinary for you, since actors who've played roles on Star Trek and Star Wars are "on your radar." And now that you know that facts and histories can--and do--change, you're at a pivotal juncture of more deeply appreciating the underlying quantum nature of reality.

Jane Goodall Alive Again

I have never heard about the Mandela effect until now actually, but I just have to share. I am an English teacher in Russia and a few years back (around 8-10, hard to be sure) I came across an article about Jane Goodall in a textbook I used with my class. This article briefly outlined her life and her work with primates and then mentioned that she was murdered by poachers (I vividly remember that, because “poacher” was one of the new words for my students, I had to explain what it meant). And it didn’t just state the fact, but there were some things said about value of her work and loss of a great professional and enthusiast. I am actually amazed to find out she is alive! And I couldn’t have possibly confused her with another person, because I don’t think I had even heard about her until I read that article. Fascinating!

Note from Cynthia: Thank you for commenting, and sharing what you recall about this alternate history in which Jane Goodall was killed by poachers. Fortunately for us and the world, that history does not currently appear to be true, but I remember it also, and I’m certain I am not confusing her with another primate researcher, because that was part of what was so astonishing to me–the timing of hearing about two primate researchers dying so close together, both murdered. I’d love to confirm with you that you also, are certain you’re not confusing Jane Goodall with some other primate researcher.


(5) Questions and Answers

Bea Arthur
This ( Alternate Histories and the Mandela Effect) happened to me somewhere in the mid nineties. I made a comment to my mother that I thought it was such a shame that Bea Arthur had died, as I felt she had so much more to contribute to comedy. My mother insisted she was alive, and I was 100 percent sure she had died several years before. Of course, I had to eat crow that day! I couldn’t get over the fact that I had been completely wrong about something that was so obvious to me for so long. Did my (and apparently 20 percent of others) timeline change? Did Bea Arthur’s? So intriguing!
— Patricia

Dear Patricia,
Thanks for sharing your experience! As you point out, you’re certainly not the only one who was surprised to see Bea Arthur was still with us in the 1990s. When we collectively experience this kind of “alive again” phenomenon or “Mandela effect” with celebrities being noticed alive again after having been previously reported dead by reputable sources–and when we take such alternate histories seriously–we stand to gain a profoundly new worldview of quantum consciousness.
— Cynthia


Hi, Cynthia,
I have only recently become aware of the idea of quantum time jumping, and there are a lot of things that come to mind within my life that I now feel may have been time jumps. I have noticed many times that somehow I have lost time, that my phone, the clocks in the house all say the same time, yet somehow outside of my home, time seems to have fast forwarded by a few minutes, when the day before the time was the same, both inside and outside my home. I have also found that really important conversations have been totally denied and forgotten by the people I remember having the conversation with. Personalities of certain people have suddenly just completely changed. I've watched a person walk out of the apartment, and a moment later, found myself sitting in front of them, and when I've questioned the person about them having left, they had no recollection of leaving. I myself have been in a room at my desk, and a moment later had someone walk in saying they had come into the room a minute earlier looking for me, and I wasn't there. Yet I have no memory of anyone walking into the room earlier, nor do I recall leaving the room. I guess I have a few questions. Am I the one that is causing these events, or is it the people I'm around? Do I have any control over these jumps? And how if it is me, am I doing this when I am not even conscious of it? I guess I have a fear of jumping into one of these places where, the people I care about have changed towards me. Sometimes I think I must be going mad, because I seem to have memories that others don't have. Thanks, Best wishes,
— Salma

Dear Salma,
Thanks for writing to me with your questions about some anomalous experiences in your life. Once you've adequately addressed the possibility that your memory and mental functioning might not be fully operational--and the clarity of your email suggests most likely those areas are just fine--then it's time to delve into what possible explanation there might be for experiencing changes in reality of the type you describe. Your questions get to the very heart of what I've been seeking to gain a better scientific explanation for, and the types of experiences you describe fit in with many of the first-hand reality shift accounts I've been documenting and writing about over the past sixteen years. To respond to your first question, "Am I the one that is causing these events, or is it the people I'm around?", it is clear that the common factor in your experiences is you, so that's the simplest answer. To answer your second question, "Do I have any control over these jumps?", it seems at present time they are not under your conscious control, so at the moment, the answer is no. I suggest that you start documenting and paying attention to when, where, how, and with whom these things happen, in order to pay attention to how you are feeling and thinking at these times. I have found that I am most likely to experience reality shifts and quantum jumps when I am aware that I'm dreaming--even when I am not asleep. This is a quality of being aware of awareness, and being attentive of attentiveness--it's the process of recognizing that "I" am not my body or anything physical, but rather the observer who is able to sense, feel, and think. To answer your third question, "And how if it is me, am I doing this when I am not even conscious of it?", I'm impressed by the way that Nature appears to operate primarily in accordance with quantum logic, despite most humans (with the exception of indigenous healers and shamans) being unaware of this. Recent discoveries in the fields of quantum biology and quantum cognition support recent theories from quantum information theory and quantum cosmology that you and I and everything exists in a superposition of states. We literally move between worlds of possibility all the time, and this is how we sense the physical world, how our memories work, how we make choices, how plants photosynthesize, and how European robins navigate. Part of the key to these experiences is not consciously attending to these experiences, but paying attention to them after-the-fact.

Sometimes strange things happen to me that make me question if all reality is my imagination—like I watch an episode I’ve seen before on the internet, but the dialogue or something might be different. And one time, something really weird happened. I don't want solipsism to be true; is there any alternate explanation for what’s happening to me? Maybe I should explain the incident. It was on deviantart; I had just woken up and was checking my notes, when I went to my note inbox. I saw all the spaces on the notes that were supposed to say who each note was from said, "no one.” After I refreshed the page a couple of times, it went back to normal.
— Andrew

Dear Andrew,
Thanks for describing the details associated with the incident of high strangeness you observed. That definitely does sound very peculiar--though some skeptics might say, "These things happen with computers sometimes." I'd say that computers and the internet can be very sensitive to picking up other realities. Yes, there is a growing body of scientists becoming aware that something called a "quantum mind hypothesis" exists. While there is yet to be total agreement on what this hypothesis and also what the quantum paradigm truly means, I hope you might be reassured to know that there are researchers working to find theories and supporting evidence in favor of Nature being primarily quantum--rather than classical--in nature. I just published an article to this effect from this year's Foundations of Mind II conference held at UC Berkeley, that you can read online in Cosmos & History here:

Primacy of Quantum Logic in the Natural World

With best wishes for the best possible 2016,

From Science to God

From Science to God:
A Physicist's Journey into the Mystery of Consciousness

by Peter Russell

A classic book bringing science and spirituality together

Peter Russell points out that the proverbial Emperor "has no clothes" in gently pointing out how our current materialistic paradigm with all scientific paradigms under its umbrella are based on the assumption that the physical world is the real world, and that space, time, matter, and energy are the fundamental components of reality. Despite the fact that nothing in Western science predicts that any living creature should be conscious, the only thing any of us can really be certain of is that we are conscious. There exists a paradox of consciousness that Russell describes as "it's existence is undeniable, yet it remains totally inexplicable." Clearly there is trouble in the material realism camp, since it's unclear how any purely material process can ever give rise to consciousness. From Science to God includes reference to German philosopher Immanuel Kant, who proposed that the mind is an active participant, and we construct reality for ourselves in the form of 'phenomenon--that which appears to be' as forms in the world which give rise to the perception of 'noumanon--thing in itself.' Immanuel Kant is now being proven to be correct, as scientists discover how our brains create representations of reality, and the senses we presume to show us 'how reality truly is' are simply interfacing with reality to share something comprehensible to us. Russell points out that there are two realities--the physical 'out there' reality and the personal reconstruction in our minds. Both of these realities can feel very real, and illusion and confusion can arise when we confuse the reality we experience with the physical reality. Beautifully written, and filled with insightful descriptions of scientific discovery and spiritual wisdom, From Science to God deserves a place of honor on every book shelf. Highly recommended!

Psychic Communication with Animals for Health
and Healing

Psychic Communication with Animals for Health and Healing
by Laila del Monte

Healing ourselves as we learn to better love and respect animals

Laila del Monte shares some of her most enchanting and magical healing experiences with animals in Psychic Communication with Animals for Health and Healing. The emphasis on healing sick and injured animals can be immensely helpful to all readers desiring to improve the health of their animal friends, whether they have four legs, no legs, wings, feathers, scales or fur. And in learning the requisite skills to gain confidence and skill in animal communication, we recover aspects of our humanity that many in western cultures have long forgot. Del Monte reminds us, "animals are free beings; they are not our property," and her philosophy of intrinsic love, admiration, and respect is obviously central to her healing success. The concept of speaking to animals as we would to any respected elders in our human tribes comes through loud and clear with a short retelling of a Cheyenne legend of two weakened traveling women with young children who once asked wild wolves for help obtaining food. The point is that when humans speak to animals from our hearts with great respect, even wild animals can know the truth of the message we convey. Del Monte writes a great deal about animals and their enormous hearts and capacity to feel and convey emotions of love. In "Psychic Communication," she shares details from some of her experiences helping place animals in new homes for adoption, and describes some of the kinds of trauma that animals--particularly service animals, like horses--often experience. Like a "Sherlock Holmes of the animal world," del Monte reveals some of the ways she's solved particularly puzzling cases, such as the time a person asked for help solving the mystery of a huge knot of fur that appeared on a cat's back every autumn. Such a thing can seem truly bizarre, especially when there might be no physical reason for it--yet by asking questions, being quiet, and listening for whatever comes--no matter how strange--the answers can arrive. And sometimes, such as in this case when the root cause had to do with a human's seasonal anxiety, the solution can bring healing to both human and cat. I highly recommend Psychic Communication with Animals to anyone who loves animals, is interested in animal communication, or would like to better develop their intuition or spiritual path.
