How Good Can it Get?
Cynthia Sue Larson
"Treat those who are good with goodness,
and also treat those who are not good with goodness.
Thus goodness is attained.
Be honest to those who are honest,
and be also honest to those who are not honest.
Thus honesty is attained."
― Lao Tzu
I had an unexpectedly amazing experience during this past month's
conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn. I'd heard that this conjunction,
set to happen on the December solstice, would be an especially rare and
wonderful event, so I made plans to watch online, just in case clouds
obstructed the view. I enjoyed viewing Lowell Observatory's livestream
broadcast, featuring informational talks by astronomers. At one point in
the show, an astronomer mentioned viewing the conjunction through
binoculars, and I went outside to see if the sky was clear—and
much to my surprise, it was, and I could clearly see Jupiter and Saturn
together through my binoculars. Even more surprisingly, I was able to see
Saturn's rings, and some of Jupiter's moons through my binoculars. But the
most amazing thing of all that truly took my breath away was seeing Saturn
shining and twinkling at me, so small and far away. Saturn felt cheerful
and encouraging to me, in contrast to how heavy, somber, and practical it
has felt to me in the past.
This Jupiter Saturn conjunction felt like acknowledgement that humanity has
arrived at a turning point of a several hundred year long cycle. I'm
reminded of Gary Lachman's excellent book, Lost Knowledge of the Imagination, with
the premise that for the past 400 years, imagination has been dismissed as
only 'make believe,' rather than acknowledged as the key to most fully
experiencing a necessary sense of meaning in our lives.
I'm grateful to have experienced a couple of truly miraculous reality
shifts this past month which reinforce the wondrous feeling of the December
solstice conjunction. In the first instance, I witnessed a change to a
window curtain that had shrunk when I'd washed it in hot water decades ago.
Every time since that unfortunate shrinkage event so long ago, I have
remembered to use cold water and carefully drip dry it each time I clean it
again. I had to lower the curtain rod after it shrank, since the curtain
had shrunk by almost two inches. This past month, a couple of days after
musing about how nice it would be to have a curtain that actually fit the
window, I was surprised and annoyed to see that curtain drooping down too
far at the bottom. I suddenly realized, "Wait a minute! That's the curtain
that's been one and a half inches short all these years--and now it's
suddenly exactly 1.5" longer?!?" Yes, it is. I moved the curtain rod up,
and our curtain is miraculously restored to its original length, without
needing to be replaced.
The second miraculous reality shift involved a missing card table in our
garage. I'd just removed one card table and wished I could find a
second one that I remembered we used to have, many years ago. I confirmed
with my daughter and husband that yes, we all remembered we used to have my
grandmother's old card table that she had written her name on. I also
remembered that it was so old, decrepit, and rusty that we had tossed it
out. This week I was heart-broken to remember that it had fallen into such
bad shape and that it was gone. I looked for it in the garage in hope I
might find it, but it certainly wasn't in the place we store card tables.
A few days later, when putting the newer card table away, I was astonished
to discover that my grandmother's card table was in the garage, exactly
where I had looked for it, where the card tables are stored! It looked
like it had been there the whole time, yet I would have seen it there if it
was. And now it does not look like junk, it looks in much better shape
than I remember it used to be!
My favorite question, "How good can it get?" provides
an open-ended invitation to invite reverence into our lives. We've
reliably witnessed some
truly amazing reality shifts over the past twenty plus years of reporting
them in RealityShifters,
and any time you'd like to remind yourself of some of the remarkable
changes we've witnessed, I hope you will feel free to browse through a few
issues, and restore your sense of wonder.

Want to Jump into Another World?
Maybe you already have
30 Dec 2020
Have you ever wished you could jump into another world–another
reality? Maybe you already have!
There is an unspoken assumption that we all agree that there exists one
consistent set of true historical events–and therefore can
expect that all our individual memories ought to correspond to this
singular, objective reality. That’s an unspoken
assumption, and it’s not really questioned. We tend to
expect that all of our individual experiences and memories map onto that
one, singular, objective reality. But what if that assumption is
What if we exist within a holographic multiverse of ever-shifting
realities, in which we sometimes find that rather than one fixed set of
historical facts, we can find ourselves remembering something different
from what official historical–culturally
If we do exist within something like a holographic multiverse of
ever-shifting realities, we could expect to witness what we now know as the
Mandela Effect. The Mandela Effect is the phenomenon where we
actually do remember foods such as Haas avocados, and Stouffer’s
Stovetop stuffing, for example. I live in California, and I always
pronounced the name of these California avocados as
“haaas” and I would have pronounced the word
“hass” if that was how it was spelled, but I
didn’t do that because it wasn’t spelled that
way. And now, it’s supposedly always been spelled
“Hass” avocados. With Stovetop stuffing,
that’s a case where I clearly remember the TV commercials that
very clearly stated this popular product was Stouffer’s stovetop
stuffing, but now supposedly it’s always only and ever been
Kraft stovetop stuffing.

Essential Oil Bottle Shift
Bothell, Washington, USA
This happened about a year ago, I had gifted myself a set of
essential oil blends roll ons, the bottles have a roller top on each of
them. Well, I went and opened the first one, taking the plastic wrap off
the bottle. Then, I went to use the blend for the first time.
Splash! Lots of essential oil splashed on my arm as there was no
roller top on this particular bottle. This particular blend is called
"StressRest", and its designed to ease stress levels. I went off, mumbling
all sorts of things, and the next time I went to use the essential oil
blend from this same bottle, I think it was the next day, there was a
roller top on the bottle! There has been a roller top on this essential oil
blends bottle ever since, I use it every now and then.
Note from Cynthia: Wow! I can just imagine your reaction
when that essential oil blend splashed all over the place. That's
such a memorable experience, that it certainly provides a solid anchor
memory to accompany your awareness that this particular bottle did not
originally have a roller top when you first got it. I find it
especially humorous that the bottle that spilled and splashed was called,
"StressRest"! I can imagine one of the things you likely
mumbled or wondered was why on Earth this bottle didn't have a roller top,
to help prevent such spillages. And then, the next time you used
it, Voila! It now has a roller top. That is very, very
Mom's wedding ring changed
Hemet, California, USA
I just had the craziest ME today. A couple years ago my mom
told me she lost her wedding ring and my grandmother's wedding rings. I
was really upset but didn't tell her because I didn't want her to feel bad.
Today I was going through my dad's things (he died a few years ago) and I
found a ring that I had never seen before. It sort of looked like my mom's
wedding ring, it looked to be from the same jeweler, but was definitely not
the ring I remembered. I asked her about it and she said, "Oh yeah, I
found my wedding ring. Didn't I tell you?" Her ring that I remember (and
the new one that appeared) are plain gold bands with decorative engraving
on them. When I was younger, I specifically remember asking her what was
engraved on her ring and she told me Forget Me Not flowers. I remember
thinking how romantic that was. Well, this ring does not have Forget Me
Nots on it or any other type of flower. It's a totally different motif.
This is not the wedding ring I have known all these years. So strange!
The most annoying part is that my mom just thinks I remember it wrong.
Ugghhh. My ego is bruised but I know what I remember. I can still picture
the old ring in my minds eye.
Note from Cynthia: Well, at least within the community of folks
who've experienced these kinds of shifts, we believe you! Sometimes it's
nice to know that there are others who may not have witnessed exactly the
same thing you have, but close enough to warrant further investigation into
how such things are going on and have been going on for hundreds (if not
thousands) of years. That's really amazing to me how you recall so clearly
and specifically that your mother's wedding ring had Forget Me Not flowers
engraved on the band. I know what those flowers are, as my grandmother used
to point them out to me, and I've had some growing in my own garden from
time to time. Thank you so much for sharing this experience!
Saw Movie 'They Live' in early 80s -- but it was released
I had an interesting encounter with the Mandela
effec today. I was talking with someone and we were discussing horror
movies from the late 70s and early 80s. My friend brought up attack of the
killer tomatoes. I brought up They Live directed by John Carpenter that I
was forced to watch in a film class when I was in college back in either 82
or 83. So I decided to go on YouTube and see if I could find a clip of that
movie which I did and I’m leaving it here for you to watch. But
it says the movie was from 1988 and that’s completely impossible
because I watched this in my college film class in either 82 or 83. I
graduated in 84 so that’s completely impossible. Says the same
thing on IMDb. Oh, and another twist. I posted that on Facebook, and a
friend of mine responded saying he looked it up and it say 1978, which
makes sense, but when I look it up on my iPad and phone on IMDb, it says
1988?!?! What the heck?
Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for writing to me with such an
intriguing description of your experience having seen a movie--before it
was released! I have heard from a number of people who know for
sure that they have seen TV episodes before that should have been possible,
and it seems you certainly have excellent anchor memories to support your
recollection that you viewed the film, "They Live" while you were in
college some five or six years before that movie ever came out. One
of the things I especially appreciate about this reality shift experience
is that clearly, this is not a movie you would have even watched if you
weren't in that film class, so there seem to be several aspects to this
experience that must seem all that much the stranger when you look back and
see that the dates don't quite line up. And yet, this kind of
observation that sometimes past events might have changed when nobody was
looking really does fit into the overall pattern of reality shifts having
been reported over the decades to realityshifters.
I just looked it up right now on my laptop computer on the IMDB website,
and it says 1988...
so it looks good enough for me to post as a RealityShifters
And even if the dates DID switch again, it would still be good enough for
These things (and stranger yet) do happen!
White Christmas movie title change
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
I just had a weird, hair stand up moment. Have always loved
Bing Crosby. I saw the movie starring him and Danny Kaye for the first time
when I was 4 years old. I watch it every year, and I am now 70. I had
always wondered about its title and recently saw a comment on Facebook that
also questioned why it was not named White Christmas as that song is
pivotal to the plot. To me this movie has always been called HolidayInn.
(The song came out in a previous Bing Crosby movie that was titled "White
Christmas," so I knew the history). I just saw it today, and it is now
titled White Christmas. The movie that was always White Christmas is now
Holiday Inn. When guiding people to see it I always emphasized that it is
called Holiday Inn, not White Christmas. This is weirdly unsettling. I
would love to hear if anyone else has noticed the movie title change.
Note from Cynthia: Wow, this is truly fascinating, Mary! Mandela
Effects / reality shifts like this can really get us to sit up and take
notice, when they involve something we’ve been paying close
attention to periodically (every holiday season) for many years.
I’ve noticed most reality shifts seem to benefit from periods of
time of ‘looking away’ where we don’t
‘stare’ unblinkingly at the matter in question. And
then when we do return our attention to this focal point of interest, we
can indeed witness some truly jaw-dropping Mandela Effects / reality
shifts. I'm also hoping others may remember the title the way you do.
It certainly rings a bell for me, but it's one of those things I wasn't
personally tracking all that closely, so I'm not sure what it was for me in
the past. I have a feeling this one will definitely get lots of
Books discovered in closet and bank window
Mesquite, Texas, USA
My blue book of photos and white book of my baby memories
were supposed to be in my computer room's closet, but I found my
white book of baby memories in the box where my master bedroom's
closet is. In my parallel universe, I just left them in my
computer room's closet. I will let you know when I find my
blue book of photos. UPDATE: I found the blue book in the
plastic basket in my master bedroom's closet. I didn't see it,
because my blue book was under many things. The big picture is
missing. I only remember where to put my blue and white books in my
computer room's closet, but they were in my master bedroom's closet; I
remember where to put them before I quantum jumped. There is only
one big photo missing. My branch bank only has the bricks and cameras
(monitors); I asked the teller if they built the bricks after the tellers'
big window before. The teller said that they always had cameras and
they never had a window like other branches. In my parallel universe, my
branch bank has the tellers' big drive-through window where we can see
through. There are no cameras (monitors), but there are only the
speakers. I checked a picture of my bank in the Google map by the
timeframe and this bank never had a teller's big drive-thru window
before. The teller I asked is correct. In my parallel
universe, my bank was opened in September 2014 after it was built as new
and it has a teller's big drive-thru window as I remember. Also, there is
a soap opera/commercial of the Green Acres TV show with the list of times
of the shows. There was someone walking to pass behind Oliver
Wendell Douiglas. In my parallel universe, there was nobody walking
to pass behind Oliver Wendell Douglas. Horace Colby stood beside
his truck with the big sign showing the list of the times of the Green
Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing these updates on
observing more small differences, and I'm delighted to learn that your blue
book is back! Some of the most frequently reported reality shifts
reported to RealityShifters over the past twenty years involve objects
disappearing and reappearing, which some call "reality shifts," Mary Rose
Barrington called "Just One of Those Things" or JOTT, and Tony Jinks refers
to as "Disappearing Object Phenomenon" or "DOP." I love it when
items return after having gone missing; and sometimes I notice that my love
for the missing object might have something to do with its return--almost
as if it felt how much I truly feel connected with it. I'm fascinated to
see how clearly you remember the bank drive-through teller window being
very similar to most other bank drive-through teller windows--in sharp
contrast with how it appears now. It seems pretty obvious that if
your bank drive-through teller window always had always previously had just
bricks and video monitors, instead of a window, that would be something you
would clearly feel familiar with. With such an obviously large
change, I can imagine it would be pretty hard to second-guess yourself on
this reality shift, since there is no way you would have not gotten used to
this now very unique and rather unusual drive-through window arrangement.
Wow! What an
amazing writing. I guess we’re from the same universe (and
same state). I too remember “Haas”. And I also have
a feel for sensing the next universe/reality and thankfully, making better
decisions via quantum consciousness. This subject reminds me of all the
new quantum apps my family and I explore together. Our favorites are
Ranonautica and Universe Splitters so far. We really enjoy using our
intentions and Ranonautica’s interesting mapping of anomalous
energies. It has really opened up some good stuff in our reality. We can
attest this is a quantum tool. On my various “Universe Splitter
” apps, I currently am residing in “Universe
B”. I think these apps are an interesting evolution in Mandela
Effects and Reality Shifting. Curious if you’ve experienced or
heard of these new apps coming out? Really grateful for you and your work
on this subject.
I've been following more of the low-tech, 'old school' methods for
communing with the cosmos most all of my life. My mother's mother
("MorMor" in Swedish) asked me each morning when I awoke, "What did you
dream last night?" and I began to pay close attention to both dreams and
daydreams as indicators, previews and guides to how events then
subsequently play out in everyday life and reality. My MorMor also
demonstrated various types of divination, including reading a variety of
signs, so from an early age I also began paying attention to evidence of
subtle energies. So while I've still not yet acquired a cell phone, nor
worked with these cell phone apps you mention, I can certainly appreciate
their value in assisting people in taking a more active role in playing
with and conversing with levels of consciousness in the cosmos.
lots of love,
Hi Cynthia, Another
great issue, thank you! I wanted to ask about Ross Nickel's story. At
the very end, he mentions there was 'residue'. What I took the end to mean
is that despite being in this reality, there was evidence in his emails of
the other reality from his replies. Is this correct? If so, that is
impressive as it would be, to me, hard evidence in our reality of the two
realities, and it would be very interesting to investigate. Best,
Thank you for writing, and thanks for pointing out this important point
about how Ross described his experience finding 'residue' or residual
evidence of a different reality. I did follow up with Ross,
requesting clarification about this matter. As it turns out, Ross
does have residual evidence, in the form of emails he sent to three
people--including "an old friend from the Detroit area who used to play
chess." Ross wrote an email to his friend, Robert, on July 14,
2016, "I found a 2004 obituary of a Dale Brandreth born in 1931 but am not
sure that was he."
With love and thanks,
Wow, that is truly amazing! I have not been able to find residue as Ross
has. Sometimes I have dreams where I feel I have gone to an alternative
reality, e.g. my mother (who passed in 1994) coming home, or beating her
cancer. There are a few more references to 'Bolt
Street' in Liverpool that I wrote you about many years ago, but these
aren't the ones I read in the mid-2010s, so they can't really count. They
look like simple typos. Ross's one is amazing as it's so specific! Best,
Yes, the specifics in Ross's story are beautifully detailed and described.
Thank you for reminding me about your experience with 'Bolt Street,'
too--that was also amazing! Dreams of alternate realities can be so
interesting and amazing.
lots of love,
I saw the
show a couple of weeks ago, it sure looked weird seeing that picture of
JFK with more people in the car. I remember there being four people
in the car, from the time that I was a little girl. The one thing I would
possibly correct John Wilson on, is the wording "never happened".
Obviously, in at least one timeline, different realities did take place. I
think he was trying to be somewhat humorous with that line, however for
many people, things did happen another way, and it is important to respect
the wording accordingly. Outside of that, simply groundbreaking, with
cameos of IMEC and Cynthia in there as well!
Thanks for all the great observations. Yes, I know what you mean
about choosing different words, rather than John Wilson's choice of words
on "How to With John Wilson" that some things "never happened." It
seems John Wilson may not (yet) grasp the importance of wording how we can
respect realities we sometimes remember that no longer matches trusted
historical records. I agree that this HBO episode, "How to Improve
Memory" was the first major media presentation of the topic to take it
seriously enough to explore it at least on an introductory, cursory
lots of love and thanks,
I have just seen the movie, “The Mandela Effect.” Do
we live in a simulation?
The main hypothesis in the movie, "The Mandela Effect," is that we do live
in a computer simulation. This was the point of view of the film's
main character, who was a programmer--and this idea that we live in a
simulated universe is becoming trendy these days, especially with those who
are intimately familiar with computers and software, such as Elon Musk.
From my point of view, even though I have a Master's degree MBA
specializing in Information Systems, and even though I've had several
programming and Information Technology jobs, I do not view a computer
simulation as being our best model for reality. This explanation is
intrinsically incomplete, as it is unnecessarily convoluted without
explaining: (1) What is being simulated? and (2) Who is in charge
of running the simulation? I feel that when we honestly
answer these unspoken, unaddressed questions, we come right back to the
very old, yet wise theory that we live in a cosmos that is created by
Consciousness. And to that I'd add that quantum logic and quantum
phenomenon are essential to how all of reality operates, at every
level--from the Planck scale (very small) to the Cosmic scale (very large).

The Keys to the Universe
by Grant Cameron and Desta Barnabe
Canadian author and award-winning UFO researcher, Grant
Cameron, shares his personal experience with the “wow
factor” of seeing UFOs, and describes the value of contact
modalities. Cameron reports on over 70 ways that people can utilize to
transcend ordinary ways of (rational, analytical) knowing, with a sense of
directly connecting with consciousness. The value of contact
modalities is profound, as it seems evident that many of our world's top
scientists, musicians, and artists utilize such 'right-brain thinking' when
they, for example, feel inspired to engage in thought experiments, or
suddenly have a flash of clear insight. Just as Paul McCartney received his
song, “Yesterday” in a dream, some of the top
scientific discoveries and artistic creations such as seeing the double
helix structure of DNA come through in the form of direct knowing and
inspiration. Cameron shows how we can learn to get in the field
by utilizing any of a number of some dozens of contact modalities, such as
meditating, to quiet the left side of our brains. These modalities
are organized in categories including: Eastern; Alien; Mechanical;
Secular; Religious; Chemically-induced; Trama; Recreational; Death; Spirit;
and Divination. One of my primary research interests over the past
decades is related to what Cameron describes as "Apports" in his Alien
modalities section. Clearly, apports need not be directly related
to UFO or ET contact experiences, and many people who witness items
appearing out of 'thin air' also experience those items vanishing again, or
transporting or transforming. Clearly, then, the phenomena of
reality shifts and the Mandela Effect qualify as contact modalities, with
the recognition that their experience is fostered by switching off the
'left brain thinking.' A truly fascinating aspect of Contact
Modalities is the way that Grant provides some riveting details amidst the
otherwise comprehensive overview of numerous ways we can practice regularly
switching off our otherwise hyperactive left brain thinking.
Cameron. describes how UFO experiences have changed over the decades and
centuries, from wooden ships seen in the air in the 1800s to modern-day
experiences with orbs, mists, beams of light, and triangles.
Humanity now has an opportunity to experience what a difference our beliefs
can make, when we recognize the foundation of reality is
consciousness–and not physical “nuts and
