How Good Can it Get?
Cynthia Sue Larson

Speak Words of Gratitude

Talk as if you are breathing words into existence
full of gratitude straight from your heart,
to find out how good your speech can get.

Our words have the power to heal, and also the power to destroy. Much of that power comes not just from the content of those words being spoken, but from the tone of voice we utilize when we speak.

While attending the West Coast Dowser's conference at the beginning of this month, I was enthralled to hear one speaker describe how he'd located a negative power spot in a couple's San Francisco apartment. This negative energy spot existed in between the husband and wife's closets, which he pointed out to the couple when clearing energy in their home. This couple immediately explained that this spot is where they stood each morning while getting dressed as they would argue with one another, and that this daily morning argument was part of their daily routine. At the gentle prompting of the dowser, a suggestion was made that they might feel much better if they did not engage in daily arguments, but rather respectful conversation. The couple agreed.

While this story may seem amusing and perhaps even a bit ridiculous, we would be wise to consider how each of us might better recognize our internal 'argument spots' that can be transformed into respectful inner dialogues. Gratitude in particular is one of the best and strongest internal tools for transformation, and something we can all benefit from in our lives.

You can feel a sense of the benefit of experiencing daily gratitude by asking, “What am I grateful for that I had something to do with today?” Chances are excellent you've done quite a lot!

Observation, Identity, and Influence
Quantum physics depends on observers selecting how and where measurements are obtained–unlike classical physics which has no such requirement for an observer. The idea of observation and the role of the “Observer” are key to the study of quantum mechanics, since the selection of how and where a measurement is made affects what is subsequently observed.  There is a special meaning to the word ‘Observer’ in quantum physics, in which selection of a method of measurement of a quantum system influences what is subsequently observed.  Methods of measurement include people at some point, so we play the role of Observer when we choose what we look at and how we look at the world. This aspect of quantum physics is sometimes referred to as “the observer effect” and “the measurement problem.”  The so-called ‘measurement problem’ is related to the Observer and has been called the most controversial problem in physics today, because in the realm of Quantum Mechanics, there appears to be no singular fixed reality that is exists when nobody is looking. Intriguingly, there can exist layers upon layers of observers–such that it can be possible for someone observing an observer to ultimately influence events–such as Schrodinger observing a cat inside a box of poison (such that the cat can be envisioned to be existing in some state of being both alive and dead)–or someone observing someone observing the cat inside the box with the poison.

Thriving with Quantum Jumps

Thriving with Quantum Jumps, Reality Shifts and Mandela Effects
A Gaia Meet up Talk with Cynthia Sue Larson

Sunday, July 8, 2018 from 7-9 pm
The Caritas Center
5723 Arapahoe Avenue, Suite 1A
Boulder, CO 80303
(303) 449-3066
Increasing reports of alternate histories in mainstream and social media suggest the “Mandela Effect” phenomena is not going away any time soon, and indicate we may be receiving important clues as to the true nature of reality.  Incidences of inexplicable changes to books, movies, products, and more are raising more questions than answers. Can experiences of the “Mandela Effect” be simply dismissed as a matter of collective misremembering? Are we witnessing evidence that we are living in a glitchy computer simulation? Have scientists at CERN tampered with something they shouldn’t have? Cynthia Sue Larson shares insights from two decades of research in the field of reality shifts, providing startling evidence of alternate histories and an overview of aspects of quantum physics that can begin to answer many questions.  We can learn to thrive amidst shifting ‘facts’ and relative truths, discovering core stability not so much in measurable, but rather in aspects of perennial wisdom, as we see increasing evidence of many possible truths, many possible realities.  We are alive at an extraordinary time, as recent scientific research indicates that we influence what we perceive, and objectivity is an illusion. Consciousness is intrinsically interwoven in the true nature of reality, and we can express free will with our ability to ask questions.


(3) Your Reality Shift Stories

I Saw my Husband and Daughter in an Alternate Dimension
South Windsor, Connecticut, USA

One evening, many years ago, I saw my husband and young daughter, pass by me going in the opposite direction as I was driving home. I thought my husband had gone on an errand, and taken our daughter, which was not something he typically did without me, as she was born with a disability and needed a high level of care at that time. When I got home less than 10 minutes later I was extremely surprised to see them at home. My husband assured me that they had never left the house. I absolutely knew that I had seen them. I had a strong feeling that I had been given a glimpse of my husband and child simultaneously living in an alternate dimension. Since my earliest years, I have been very sensitive, intuitive and have had very unusual experiences at times. This second experience also happened many years ago. It was a very difficult time. I remember feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Our daughter was often in the hospital, we were having financial struggles, and I was grieving the deaths of my Dad and two of my best friends all within a few years. One day I headed out in the car alone to go shopping. I remember saying out loud before I left that I couldn’t handle another bad thing happening. Perhaps this statement changed what could have happened next.. I started to pull out at an intersection, when another car suddenly came speeding down the road and literally passed completely through my car and disappeared. It entered my driver side door and exited the passenger side without impacting me or the car at all. It was like watching a ghost pass through a wall. I sat there in stunned disbelief. I felt that I must have been saved by my guardian angel. Perhaps my self who could not bear another bad thing happening was spared through a quantum jump to another reality. In reflecting upon my first experience, being given a glimpse of my husband and daughter in that other dimension driving by me years ago, I wonder why my alternate self was not with them in that car. If I survived a very close call in one reality, I think it is possible that I did not in another. I do not know. I do know that I am grateful to be here, that our daughter is now an adult and we are all doing well. I am increasingly aware through my experiences and my lifelong love of learning that I am a spiritual being, living in a multidimensional universe. In my life, and through my work as a nurse I have found that healing can be found through compassion, caring and having the courage to share our stories.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for writing to me, and for sharing with me two unforgettable reality shifts you've experienced. While having an oncoming vehicle pass through yours and seeing loved ones out in their car and immediately thereafter seeing them still at home may sound unbelievable to some, I've found when giving talks about these topics that both of these experiences are far more commonly experienced than most people realize.  Many people who've come up to talk with me about either of these types of experiences typically start the conversation with, "I've never told anyone about this," since here in the western world there seems to be quite a negative stigma about believing such things can happen. Yet clearly, these types of experiences are happening, and apparently much more often than has so far been formally acknowledged by much of society. What seems to be happening is that sometimes, we literally do get to choose which reality we're physically experiencing, with occasional real-time glimpses of other adjacent possible realities that we might usually call 'imaginary.' Yet within quantum physics, such possible realities have a reality of their own, and observers definitely do play a big role in selecting between them.


Door Hinges Appear on Screen Door
Glendora, California, USA

In May 2014 I was going to put up (install) an aluminum screen door I found under the manufactured home we had just recently bought and i had everything ready to go with screws and tools and I called my wife over to help me out with her holding the door while i positioned the door to the door jam and screw the 2 hinges at mid top and bottom into the wood of the outer door frame when i noticed that the hinges were not there on the screen door for there were 3 large open holes at each hinge area where the hinge would have been pop riveted to the side edge of the screen door mid top and mid bottom . and i remember saying to my wife oh look there are no hinges  and she looked and said, “Oh, maybe that's why the previous owner threw it under the home to begin-with,” and I said, “Okay, I will measure the 2 hinge areas to get the right size before I go to Home Depot,” and I put the screen door in the back yard for a later time, which became a week later. When I went to measure the area where the hinges would go, I became astonished, because right before my eyes I saw that the hinges were there on the screen door. I immediately ran to my wife and asked, “Do you remember seeing the hinges gone on the door last week? We could not put it up,” and she said, “Yes, why?” and I said, “Because now they are there on the door,” and we both went out to look so i could show her, and she saw the hinges were there. While I was seeing this again also, we both saw knowing they were not there before. This was filed away in my mind to rehash my memory later on about the strange thing that happened to us; Cynthia what do gather from this incident.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks for writing to me with your first-hand report of the aluminum screen door hinges appearing on the screen door one day, when you went out to take measurements so you'd be able to purchase the correct size hinges. I've also experienced situations like this, where an item is clearly and obviously in one state of being one day--such as a hinge-less aluminum door--and in quite a different state on another day. I describe my experience of once witnessing a Gortex coat we'd gotten that was definitely not rip-stop nylon (which was a more expensive material for coats at that time) one day be the same color and the same size and by the same manufacturer--but now suddenly without ever having been taken back to the store to exchange or any such thing it was now rip-stop nylon.  I describe my experience with that in my book, You can view all past issues & subscribe by visiting: Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, with numerous other examples of such phenomena. I've been studying and reporting on this reality shift phenomenon for the past 20 years now, and you can read through hundreds of first-hand reports at the www.realityshifters.com website and in the monthly RealityShifters ezine.

Altering History
Coventry, West Midlands, Warwickshire, England

I’ve jumped to a new dimension where something very odd has occurred! A few weeks ago I was at a family bbq and some family friends were there; one friend I was talking to was talking to me about his ‘late’ mother and how his father was overtly upset at the funeral (when Roy was just 16 years old. Roy is now 61) we had a long conversation about it. Then a week later my mum told me Roy has just lost his mum! I argued this and said that can’t be right ?! I was only just talking about him losing his mum at the young age of 16! We talked for w while about it)! She said I don’t understand that as he’s just lost her! I went on his face book to see for myself and she’s right!! This has to be the most shocking quantum jump I’ve made todate where history has altered and someone who was once passed has had all that extra time now??! Very very strange! What are your thoughts on this Cynthia?

Note from Cynthia: Wow, this change truly is remarkable, with such an unmistakably large shift having occurred in such a relatively short span of time! And while this obvious a shift feels shocking, I'm glad you didn't block it by deciding that either you or Roy or your mum must be mistaken. I love how you've followed through by double-checking to see what Roy is now reporting online. If Roy hadn't actually just lost his mum recently, you might have asked him what he recalls you talked about with him a few weeks ago--but obviously that's a bad idea to do now that his mum's death is so recent in this current reality. In this case, the long conversation you had with Roy is something you know for sure definitely happened--just like you know for sure that just recently, Roy has (again!) lost his mum. I like your observation that now you're in a reality where Roy has had so much extra time with his mum--which might have been something both you and Roy were wishing for a few weeks ago when you were talking with him. And in many cases, reality shifts do happen that move reality in a direction we much prefer. I notice there is also a similarity of this reality shift with one that Raul reported in the August 2005 issue of RealityShifters, where he experienced film director Frank Capra's death twice, six years apart: Find Hope in Infinite Possibilities

Earring Returned after Going Missing in a Store
Sacramento, California, USA

I have to say that even though I've had some adventures myself losing things, all I cold think of is "please not my grandma's diamond!" I'm right now looking for a broach which contained my great grand aunt's picture. It was "borrowed" a couple of weeks ago. Trying to be patient while waiting. I did have a bit ago one of my earrings disapear off my ear at a store. Well, okay, I came home and made peace with my loss. About 6 months later, there was the earring, sitting on the top shelf of my fridge. I have cleaned that shelf at least twice a week in the last 6 months.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks for sharing your experience having patience, waiting for a while, and then experiencing the return of valued items, such as your earring that went missing when you were out shopping in a store. How wonderful that your earring arrived to sit so boldly on the top shelf of your refrigerator six months later! I've found that patiently waiting approach helpful, too--a kind of cosmic, "No questions asked" arrangement, where very often the missing items really do return at some point in the future. Keeping a positive attitude definitely is helpful, I have found!

Michelangelo Creation of Adam
Michelangelo and the Sistine Chapel
Bastrop, Texas, USA

First of all, I want to thank you for all you are bringing to the world. I so enjoy your work! I clearly, CLEARLY remember that in Michelangelo's The Creation of Adam painting on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, Adam is sitting on a rock with his outstretched arm and index finger reaching for "God" and the angels, engulfed in a bank of clouds, reaching back down to Adam. Well, not anymore! NOW, "God" and the angels are contained in a cross section of A BRAIN--A HUMAN BRAIN! How interesting that when humanity was searching for "God", as well as personal fulfillment, being something held in the "out there", the path of accomplishing that quest was pictured as exactly that--out there, held in some bank of clouds. Thanks to your work as well as the dedication of others to educate our collective that the True reality is held within each of us, now, the route of THIS quest is reflected in Michelangelo's art. Again, thank you so much for the wonderful, clear, and entertaining way you are bringing and explaining this reality shift to us all. Interesting that God's arm now extends out of what would be considered the third eye. Also, Adam is no longer even really reaching for God! There is just the slightest effort to extend his finger is response. As I recall from the cloud version, there was effort in Adam's reach upwards towards God. Hopefully this is a clear indication that we, as a collective, have reached the critical mass point where the lower vibrational egoistic aspect has surrendered its quest to dominate thus opening our new paradigm experience of living in higher aspects of heart based unity consciousness!

Note from Cynthia: Wow--this change to Michelangelo's Creation of Adam painting is a big one! I do not remember anything like God and the angels being surrounded by folded drapery in the form of a brain--good heavens! I see that according to current historical facts, someone named F.L. Meshberger presented a pictoral thesis in 1990 that God is enfolded in what appears to be an anatomically accurate cross-section of a human brain in Michelangelo's Creation of Adam--yet this is something I do not recall having been possible in the way I remember this famous painting from the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. I also remember God reaching DOWN toward Adam's extended hand and finger, but now God reaches across!

Ceramic Trays change to Plastic
Morristown, Tennessee, USA

It's taken me a day or so to process this, but the night before last, I asked my ex to get two square ceramic trays off the top cabinet shelf for me. I had put them up there maybe two years ago and had had no need for them until the other night. When he handed them down to me, I was stunned. The trays still had the same wood grain finish as they did when I'd put them on the shelf, but they were no longer ceramic or square. Now they are rectangular and plastic. They also have a weird grape cluster decal on them that they did not have before. I wonder where my square ceramic trays went and where these cheesy rectangular, grape adorned, plastic trays came from. There is no rhyme or reason to this shift. I'm still stumped about the shift. You can call me Teresa from Morristown, Tennessee if you want. It's nice to hear from you and I can't wait to read the issue. And no one could have switched the trays. They had been up there so long there were cobwebs on them and no one knew about the trays except for me! Things have been shifting for me in many small ways lately, and I tend to ignore them and let them go with little notice. I guess maybe the universe is saying, "Hey, do you see me now?" I feel like these shifts are indicating that life is much more mysterious than most people realize! Thanks for the great work you are doing, Cynthia. You and Rupert Sheldrake are fine examples of scientists who are out there doing work that is relevant to the average person. I applaud you.

Note from Cynthia: This really is a bit of a head-scratcher, with the familiar old trays now being completely different. Presumably, nobody else would have switched out the ceramic trays for these rectangular plastic wood-grained trays--and they sound somewhat similar to the untrained eye or unfamiliar observer. This really is a remarkable shift, since the items were familiar to you in a tactile way, as well as visually--and they seem to be noticeably different in both regards!

Foot Changes
Morristown, Tennessee, USA

I have come to experience even more bizarre alterations in this new reality, one of the parents at my children’s school told me last year she had a prosthetic foot! And walked with a limp; recently I noticed she had stopped limping?! So I asked her how her foot was? She showed me and said she is waiting on surgery for her foot which were definitely not prosthetic!! I obviously couldn’t say to get you had a prosthetic foot last year as she would have thought I was crazy. These changes are not subtle in any way shape or form. I’m still curious as to why my financial experience hasn’t improved for the better as yet? Albeit I’m seeing small increases and options--perhaps this is to come? Thank you for your interest and guidance through this new reality, Cynthia.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks for sharing this latest development with what sounds like a radically improved foot situation for your acquaintance--very cool! And these changes are truly not subtle in any way, but rather shocking and astonishing and startling. Yet of course it would be rude and inconsiderate to ask her anything about a previously prosthetic foot--even though I suspect if you were so bold as to ask, she'd likely think you were just confused.


(4) Mail Bag, Questions, and Answers

I saw your YouTube channel. And the subject of quantum physics always interests me. My question is, can you use Quantum Jumping to improve relationships, study better, improve confidence? Is it all about intention and visualisation?
— Adithya

Dear Adithya,
The idea presented in my book, Quantum Jumps, is that all possible versions of reality are within reach--and the key to attaining them is to attain a relaxed, detached, energized (theta brainwave) state of mind through meditation or self-hypnosis or something like that; focus on which of the many possible realities you're selecting; and proceed onward with your life as if you're now in that chosen reality. The book presents some science to back up the assertion that this works, and has many exercises that do show how to improve relationships, improve confidence, improve mental clarity. In addition to intention and visualization (the second step), it's vitally important to develop skill with the first and third steps of detachment and acting 'as if.'

With love and thanks,
— Cynthia


Hi Cynthia,
I had wanted to ask you if, based on your experiences, as well as those of others who have told you of their experiences, if and when we do get to change our pasts, if we will have any memories of the new timeline, as well as would we still remember the previous one? Having read your books and some of the testimonies on your site, I'm inclined to think that we would remember both. After all, how would you have known to write about the changes that you had noticed, right? I think this for another reason too; and tell me if you've ever experienced this.
— Daniel

Dearest Daniel,
Yes, we often do remember both the historically 'correct' memories as well as the currently historically 'factually incorrect'. Sometimes those memories come through almost like memories from a dream, slowly at first at times, such as when noticing something seems strangely familiar, even though it now makes no sense that it could have possibly occurred.

lots of love,
— Cynthia


Ma'am, what does "the observer" mean in QP? Does it mean us? And how we perceive things/look at things? Also could you shed some light on the power of our intention?
— Daniel

Dear Adithya,
There is a special meaning to the word 'Observer' in quantum physics, in which selection of a method of measurement of a quantum system influences what is subsequently observed. Methods of measurement typically do include a person or persons at some point, so it does mean us--and the ways we choose to observe / measure the world. Our intentions and our attention direct the kinds of observations / measurements we make in the world.

lots of love,
— Cynthia


I checked your website, have you had any clients that were successful at actually changing something in the past physically?
— Malak

Dear Malak,
The way I view such successes is not so much as 'changing the past' as experiencing a transformed reality--in which past, present and future are typically all transformed. Yes, I've worked with clients who've overcome seemingly impossible health and other situations. The truth about witnessing the past appear to change is that more likely what's going on is that one has completely 'jumped tracks' to an adjacent reality. This sort of thing happens every time there's a synchronicity, spontaneous remission of disease, and many other things that are currently not considered to involve changing the past--yet to me, it seems clear that this is what, in fact, is happening.

With love and thanks,
— Cynthia


After a lot of experience throughout my life i have come to a conclusion that this universe is a simulation. Everythig is unreal.I think you have more knowledge than me in this matter.So i have a query. If the world is a simulation like a computer program then what could probabaly be a hack for this computer program,like a cheatcode,with which i may get anything i want.
— Anubhav

Dear Anubhav,
If this universe is a simulation, which I dearly hope is not the case (and which honestly feels like an unsavory and dissatisfactory possibility to me), then you could consider the cheat codes to consist of honoring the highest spiritual truths as described in the perennial wisdom philosophy.  Such 'cheat codes' will likely not feel much like cheating, since such things as cheating are antithetical to the perennial wisdom philosophy.

With love and thanks,
— Cynthia


Hullo Ma'am,
Can you suggest any(Quantum Jumping) method for studying well? I need to study with a non attached mind and enjoy what I'm doing. Is it possible to grasp things quicker, become more intelligent? I loved the method you mentioned about healing relationships.
— Adithya

Dear Adithya,
There are a few things you can do to improve your ability to study well that I mention in my book, Quantum Jumps. One is that you can point your fingers to your head for a few moments; this increases your mental clarity and cognitive abilities.  Another is that you can clench your hands into fists for a few seconds and then open your hands wide for a few seconds--and repeat--while at the same time focusing on your resolve to study diligently and practice good study habits. A third excellent technique that is also mentioned in "Quantum Jumps" is to tell yourself, "You've got this" before working on studying any material.

With love and thanks,
— Cynthia

The Five Gifts

The Five Gifts
by Laurie Nadel

This Book Reduces Pain and Helps Us Heal

This book reduces pain and helps us heal by providing us with powerful insights into how best to focus attention in our lives--before, during, and after any crisis--to live our most meaningful, precious lives. Dr. Nadel's book "The Five Gifts" helps us find the way to find the ability to move forward when devastating hardships occur.  Nadel describes five gifts of: humility, patience, empathy, forgiveness and growth that have the power to uplift us when we feel we've hit rock bottom in our lives.  The key to harnessing the power of these gifts lies in recognizing that we humans are truly resilient, and quite capable of recognizing that life's events can't torment us nearly as much as our own thoughts and feelings about those events. What makes "The Five Gifts" priceless is the wisdom Nadel conveys through first-hand descriptions of survivors of a wide variety of tragedies that recount the remarkable ways people have found to focus attention on what truly matters most, and maintain clarity of heart and mind even when tempted to lose heart and give up. Nadel herself is such a survivor, in addition to also being a psychological counselor specializing in working with those who've lived through disasters.  I treasure her soulful honesty and genuine heartfelt courage as she describes what she's lived through, and how she has made use of the many brilliant tips she includes. I love the simple elegance of how Nadel presents the five gifts, and then delves more fully into each one in ways that clearly illustrate the benefits of accepting the kinds of gifts one might at first not wish to receive.  I love how Nadel describes these gifts as strengthening our core, and shares her secret doubts and fears during dark times in her life when it was almost impossible to hold a clear vision of her thriving future self.  Nadel is an author who not only "walks her talk," but also lights the way for all of us to benefit from five gifts capable of reducing our pain and helping us heal. I adore Nadel's sense of humor as she writes, "No one outside a religious order actually wants humility.  Nor will you find patience, empathy, forgiveness or growth high up on anyone's gift list for the holidays.  These Five Gifts are like those poor animals in the shelter that keep getting passed over.  Humility, patience, empathy, forgiveness, and growth are unwanted because they break us open--again.  Seriously, haven't we been through enough?"  Yes, we may have just been through the worst time of our life so far, yet there is an almost miraculous magic to choosing to accept these five gifts, and that is breaking through the ego's control of how we see the world. As Nadel succinctly sums it our relationship with these five gifts, "Logically, and under ordinary circumstances, you would never be looking for them.  But when disaster strikes, these Five Gifts will help you to heal more quickly." This extraordinary gem of a book is the perfect gift for anyone you know who's physically survived some kind of crisis or disaster, and who you might think would surely have 'gotten over it by now,' but most likely is smiling on the outside and still reeling on the inside.  "The Five Gifts" is an outstanding book for anyone dealing with grief of any kind, and anyone who's been a survivor of tragedy. Highly recommended!
