How Good Can it Get?

Revelations of the Mandela Effect

Instead of counting your days,
make your days count

During the current shelter-in-place, or lockdown, as some people call it, we might find ourselves tempted to count the number of days since life seemed normal, and start to guess the number of days until life may feel somewhat normal again. Clearly we'll feel best when we know we're making the most of our time, somehow. And perhaps this is one of the greatest revelations for all of us this year.

I'm grateful to be involved this past month with the newly-formed International Mandela Effect Conference (IMEC), which is now officially a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. I'm also grateful that within just a few months, we were able to organize and launch our first conference, featuring a keynote presentation by Regina Meredith, and talks by fourteen speakers. People who gave presentations at this year's free, online, live-streaming conference included: Christopher Anatra “the Quantum Businessman;” Jerry Hicks “Dark Wolf's Den;” Shane Robinson “Unbiased and on the Fence;” Kimberly-Lynn Hanson; Anthony Santosusso “Susso;” Evan Matraia “moneybags73;” Eva Nie “Once Upon a Timeline,” Eileen Colts “ONE;” Jan Engels-Smith “”; Sean Bond “Psionic League;” Akronos Mago “;” and Nicole DeMario. Interviews with many of the presenters and individual presentations from IMEC2020 are posted or will be posted on the International Mandela Effect Conference YouTube channel. Because the Mandela Effect delves into the nature of reality and consciousness, it's perhaps no surprise that we may find as many opinions about how the topic should be presented as there are people on the planet.

IMEC Mandela Effect glitch
One of the things I most enjoyed about this year's IMEC conference, in addition to the inspirational and uplifting presentations, was that it featured a couple of fun Mandela effects during the event. The first one showed up on Day Two in Shane Robinson's appropriately titled presentation on, “Revelations in Mandela Efect Changes.” Shane noted that when he viewed the video footage filmed in November 2019 of him pointing out the geographic Earth changes on a map he created where he had written the word “Love” in many languages, further changes have apparently occurred between November 2019 and June 2020! We also enjoyed a sense of our higher selves having a little fun with us on Day Four during the Question and Answer period following my presentation, when conversation between Christopher Anatra, myself and Shane Robinson looped back on itself.

IMEC2020 attendees enjoyed playing with the and winning cash prizes for high scores on a variety of online games during the conference. I love how some of the ThetaStream games provide wonderful feedback about attaining high vibratory, daydreamy state of mind that I find so important when experiencing the most enjoyable reality shifts and quantum jumps. I was happily surprised to do well enough on one of the challenges to win a prize—and Shane Robinson won a prize on that contest, as well. I promise you that these contests were not rigged! I wanted to try out the app and see how it worked, and I'm happy to assure you that the works quite well.

I was amazed this past month to have found two new-to-me researchers who have published books and articles about reality shifts and personal Mandela effects: Mary Rose Barrington and Tony Jinks. I review the book, “JOTT,” by Mary Rose Barrington in this month's newsletter, and I am looking forward to reading the book, “Disappearing Object Phenomenon,” by Australian psychology professor, Tony Jinks soon. I wrote a blog post this month about JOTT, jottles, and DOP, describing some of the similarities and differences in the typologies between Mary Rose Barrington's “jotts” and “jottles,” Tony Jinks' “DOP,” and reality shifts as described by PMH Atwater and myself. I'm especially pleased that Barrington's research and book presents documentation of reality shifts and personal Mandela effects going back to the 1950s, and that Tony Jinks' research confirms that people who experience reality shifts do not appear to suffer from more cognitive biases, errors, or memory issues than those who do not report reality shifts.

Ripon Rabbit Mandela Monthly with Evan Matraia and
Elizabeth Loftus
Another newsworthy development this past month is a historic conversation about the Mandela effect with a memory expert, a stage magician, and a Mandela effect expert. In this fascinating episode of the Ripon Rabbit Hole's July 2020 Mandela Monthly, AJ (the “Ripon Rabbit” and experienced stage magician) and Evan Matraia (aka “monebags73”) conversed with Dr. Elizabeth Loftus about the Mandela effect and her area of expertise, which is the malleability of human memory. Loftus' name is mentioned in almost all mainstream news stories and articles about the Mandela effect. Dr. Elizabeth Loftus earns her living as an expert in the way memories can be shaped and directed, based on verbal cues—to such a degree that even supposedly water-tight eyewitness testimony can be steered and changed. During this fascinating conversation with AJ and Evan, Dr. Elizabeth Loftus discovered that she has Mandela effect memories of both dialogue in the movie, “The Wizard of Oz” where the witch is talking to her flying monkies, and also what she remembers Gracie used to say at the end of each of the George Burns and Gracie Allen Shows, after George Burns would say, “Say good night, Gracie.” Dr. Loftus expressed sincere interest in seeing some of Evan Matraia's research involving his Mandela effect voting videos, showing percentages of people who remember various Mandela effects.

My favorite question, “How good can it get?” provides an open-ended invitation to welcome inspiration, support, connection, meaning, kindness, and love 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.

Crisis, Convergence, and Quantum Jumps
Crisis, Convergence, and Quantum Jumps
Cynthia Sue Larson on Higher Journeys with Alexis Brooks

3 Jun 2020
Host of Higher Journeys, Alexis Brooks, points out that at this time, many are scratching their heads and wondering what is going on in this world. Some are saying it's doomsday, while others are saying, "Hooray, we're finally on the way to the evolution of humanity!" This is a time of great differences in viewpoints, for sure! But what's really at play here and what does the quantum realm have to do with the dynamics in motion right now? According to quantum researcher and physicist Cynthia Sue Larson, the energetics playing out right now are paving a path toward the convergence of multiple worlds, multiple dimensions and ultimate choice, IF you know how to choose! This is a potent time, however you slice it. And for those who recognize the plasticity of the "now," YOU can re-create your reality, BIG TIME!

Cynthia Sue Larson with JOTT
JOTT documentation
of early personal Mandela Effects
Two researchers, Barrington and Jinks, have documented personal Mandela Effects and reality shifts as "jotts," "jottles," and "DOP," providing well-documented case histories of these events well back into the 1950s, with anecdotal evidence going much further back than that. This past month, Jeff Mishlove, author and host of the excellent program, Thinking Allowed, asked if I had heard of a book called JOTT written by Mary Rose Barrington.  Until Jeff Mishlove mentioned this book, it had not been on my radar at all. JOTT:  When Things Disappear... and Come Back or Relocate--and Why it Really Happens was published in 2018.  I love how it normalizes the reality shift or personal Mandela Effect phenomenon as merely being "Just One of Those Things," or "JOTT."  Author Mary Rose Barrington was born in London in 1926, studied law, and served as Vice President of the Society for Psychical Research. One of my favorite things about JOTT is that it was written by a researcher born in the 1920s who was keenly aware that instances of objects disappearing, reappearing, teleporting, and appearing-out-of-nowhere were matters of common knowledge over a century ago.  JOTT references several articles on "Jottles" written by Barrington, going back to the early 1990s; Barrington was clearly fascinated with this topic.  Some of the detailed reports included in JOTT occurred as early as the 1950s, and Barrington pointed out that this phenomenon has a history going much farther back even than that.  Barrington writes, "In our time, we seldom hear reports of sensational macro-phenomena said to have taken place during the 100 years starting mid-nineteenth century, when many people believed that such things were possible and that they could be evoked by the human endeavor, usually with input from the supposed spirit world."

Isness: The Mandela Effect and the Collective Reality Shift
Dee Black talks with Cynthia Sue Larson about finding unexpected treasure in the garden, and finding unexpected treasure in listening to one another—even in difficult times. Cynthia's experience of having been profiled provides food for thought, and deeper awareness of how better to relate to those we might consider “other” than ourselves.

Reality Shifting Stories:
Silly, Mischievous Objects

Dee Black from the Isness YouTube channel reads some of the first-hand reports submitted to RealityShifters, having to do with the kind of reality shifts where objects behave in mischievous ways.

the Conflict Radio Network

7 Jul 2020
Cynthia Sue Larson talks with “Conflict” of the Conflict Radio Network about an experience of feeling stuck in-between possible realities, until finally finding the correct one in an experience that seemed to go on for years one evening. Thanks to an out-of-the-blue tip that, “you're quantum jumping,” he was able to make it back to the correct reality. Such an experience qualifies as being an Exceptional Human Experience, which in turn can improve the likelihood of experiencing reality shifts and quantum jumps.

Cynthia Sue Larson with Tim Weisberg on The Midnight

with Tim Weisberg
on The Midnight Society

30 Jun 2020
Cynthia Sue Larson talks with Tim Weisberg about the Mandela Effect on The Midnight Society. Tim remembers the “Berenstein Bears,” as well as seeing celebrities reported to have died, and then die again. Cynthia discusses how you can verify that a Mandela Effect has occurred, rather than some kind of confusion or mis-remembering. Cynthia and Tim discuss various ways of viewing what it means when someone “takes the download” from whatever current historical facts are acknowledged at some given point by collective consciousness. A caller named Shiloh shares an experience with witnessing a memorable scene go completely missing from a movie that she watched three more times, just to make sure the scene was not there. We can definitely grow from learning that reality can shift, even though at times such experiences can feel scary when it feels like the very foundation of reality as we thought we knew it is crumbling away.

(3) Your Reality Shift Stories

Solar Generators Appear, and Change Direction
Oakland, California, USA

I was in an Engineering Club and I brought up to a speaker (a high official) the idea of powering much of our society with Solar energy.  She was visibly displeased and not courteous.  Her own Second Official refuted her and agreed with me.  I did a "back of the envelope" calculation showing it could work and forgot about it. A month or so later a friend of mine and I were discussing ME.  We have a range of views on it.  I remember Mandela as leaving prison and no death.  But I do have other odd off timeline memories.  We walked out to a parking lot and saw solar generators.  They were big with a green fence around them. Both of us marveled because they had just arrived.  But records show they had always been there.  But we did not remember them!   Every day since, I marveled.  Days later one of them switched direction from East-West to North-South.  The next day it was back again.  Eventually they were tagged with graffiti, which is odd, because they were there so many years and yet looked new when I first saw them. I eventually saw solar generators all over.  I think that the later ones were recently built and not "always" there.  But they arrived just after the initial one with the odd dark green color that was out of place. The official also lost her seat, which is sad because I voted for her even with her odd answer to my question.  Other interesting events occurred during this time that challenged my simple perception of reality, or of whether things are simple to understand. Indeed, I can testify that the original generators would not have been built in the 2 hours since my friend and I began our conversation.  It is truly possible they had always been present and that neither he nor I noticed them.  But he is highly observant and what is strange is that we were just discussing ME and they appeared.  Was it that we just noticed them?  Maybe, but he is extremely observant, highly intelligent and no one's fool.  He also concurred about the direction shift. I want to be clear and say I have no dogma behind what I think ME is.  All I know is that something "apparently" answered my conversations about solar energy, the environment, matrix reality and other topics. Or a trick of the mind.  You decide.  All I can say is that this is true by my recollection.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing your experience with seeing large, fenced-in solar generators appearing as if they'd always been there--within a short two hour period of time.  It seems like a response to any doubts you might have had that those generators really had come 'out of nowhere,' when one of them made a directional shift from East-West to North-South orientation--and then back again.  What I like best about this whole experience is that this was such a positive reality shift, immediately following a conversation you'd just had with a politician about the benefits of large-scale implementation of solar power.  It's as if our participatory universe was listening, and replied, "let it be so."


Mom experienced weird shift
Chicago, Illinois, USA

Hi Cynthia! I love reading your unique stories that people submit to you (I get your email newsletters. :)). Anyway, I wanted to share one that happened recently to my mom. I'm a big believer in the Mandela Effect and weird realities after experiencing one particularly weird thing personally to me, but that's another story I think I already shared. Even though my mom is open to listening to me talk about this weird stuff, she's never really experienced anything. She's currently living in the Philippines, and messaged me to call her about something weird and creepy that happened to her. As a side note, her caregiver and maid are very honest and loyal to her. Here's what she told me: "I asked my caregiver to go buy me this seasoning for this soup. I told him it has to be the Knorr brand. Later that night, the maid gave me my soup dinner (the caregiver had already gone home), and it was really sour and salty. I asked her to show me the packaging the seasoning came in. It was like a plastic bag with no ingredient listing. I explained to her how they got the wrong one, and the Knorr one would have listed the brand name and ingredients. A few days later, I told my caregiver again to get the Knorr soup packet and to make sure he gets the right one this time. He gave me an odd look, and I told him to just talk to the maid about it. He and the maid came back to my room, and she said that we had never had the conversation about the other seasoning! I didn't believe it, so I told them to show me again the package the soup had come in. When they returned, it was the Knorr brand! It wasn't the plastic one I saw a few days earlier!" Now, I'm not sure what the point is of going to a reality where you get bad soup means, lol, but in my mom's paranoid mind, she thinks the incident means her angels were visiting her saying that they'll be taking her soon (she's not even ill). And she was saying how she didn't feel any fear at all, didn't sense any other weird vibe in that other reality. But I told her, “no! You shifted to another reality!” Anyway, interesting times!

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing this experience your mother described, with the soup packet changing.  What I find fascinating about this experience is both that the soup package wrapper appeared to have changed, and also that the maid assured your mother that they'd never had any conversation about the importance of making the correct soup with a packet of Knorr brand soup.  I've often noticed that people I talk to don't remember conversations that I know that we've had--which to me is a big 'red flag' that some kind of reality shift / personal Mandela Effect has occurred.  I believe these kinds of discrepancies in the way we remember conversations have happened take place a great deal more than most people realize, and only come to the surface where we get a chance to view them on occasions such as this, where an important conversation is believed by one person to have happened, though someone else believe it never took place at all.

My Slow Motion Flying Jump
Dyan (Earth Daughter)
Oregon, USA

When I was around age 5 or 6 years old in the first grade, I have a very vivid memory of playing hopscotch during recess and feeling the effect of—a glitch in the matrix, or an out of body experience—is the only way that I can think to describe it. Maybe you've heard similar stories, and have an idea of what happened to me. Anyway, we were playing hopscotch at first, but then the game of hopscotch evolved into us taking turns to see who could jump farthest, and skip the most squares, like doing a running long jump. There were three or four of us playing. As soon as we jumped and landed, we would run to the end of the line to do it again. Upon my 10th or so jump, I lifted off, and everything went into slow motion. I felt like I was flying much higher than before, and in slow motion and like I didn't have control of my body, or how I would end up landing.  When I did land, in what felt like 10 seconds or so, my feet touched the ground, but I couldn't feel them touch, my knees buckled, and I landed on all fours, but I didn't feel my knees or hands touch the ground. The inertia caused my elbows to give, and my body continued to move downward and forward in slow motion, and I didn't stop until my whole body was laying flat on the ground with my head turned to the side. Now, if I would have experienced this fall full speed, I'm sure it would have hurt like heck. Instead, it felt like a gentle, slow motion descent that I didn't have control of, and that something else was controlling the way I landed, and made sure my head turned to the side, so as to not plant my face into the ground. Once on the ground, it took another two seconds or so for things to feel normal speed again. I was really freaked out, thinking that it should have really hurt! I quickly got up on my feet, brushed myself off and assessed the situation trying to see if I was injured. Nobody on the playground ran to my aid or seemed the least bit concerned about my fall. Maybe that was because I jumped up so quickly they assumed I was fine, which it turned out, I was fine.  I may have slightly skidded the palms of my hands and knees, but barely.   It left me pretty shaken. I just walked away from the game completely stunned that I had been flying in slow motion, and nobody saw it happen. Years and years later as an adult, I told my father that story. He looked at me shocked, and asked me why I had never told him before. He then told me he had a very similar experience as a child, where he was repeatedly running up a short flight of steps leading to the front door of his house, then he would use the handrails and walk down on his hands with his feet raised, not touching the steps. He said that after doing it a number of times, he went to walk down with his hands on the handrails, and instead he gently glided down in slow motion without his feet touching the steps and without his hands on the hand rails and he made a soft, perfect landing at the bottom stoop. He was just as shocked as me. We spent the afternoon sharing crazy stories that at the time we could only associate with the paranormal. We didn't know what we were dealing with.

Note from Cynthia: I love how were able to describe this slow motion flying jump experience to your father, and then it turned out that he'd also had such a similarly extraordinary slow motion experience, too! As a special post script, I want to make note of the fact that you originally sent this experience to me in January 2017, and also that you are the one who put me in touch with Dr. Tarrin Lupo, where I first met Evan Matraia (moneybags73). Thank you so much for all your support through these extraordinary times!

Noticing the Portrait of Dorian Gray
Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

I saw you on one of the latest episodes of Open Minds with Regina Meredith on GAIA.  I just wanted to let you know, first of all, that I remember The PORTRAIT of Dorian Gray as well.  In fact, I just looked it up on Amazon to see how it was listed now but I put in the title with the word 'portrait.'  It was obvious from the fact that when I input the title with portrait in it and that title came up in the listings (below the scroll bar) but then pulled up ONLY The PICTURE of Dorian Gray, that we're not the only ones who remember the word portrait. But something just happened today that really made me wonder about this.  I've been rewatching the first Penny Dreadful series with Timothy Dalton which ran from 2014 through 2016.  One of the characters in this series is Dorian Gray.  Today, in the 1st season, 4th episode which was filmed in 2014, Dorian Gray was shown sitting before his—PORTRAIT—which is not a small 'picture,' but a huge floor to ceiling framed canvas with his visage on it which most artists typically refer to as a 'portrait.'   I say that because I am an artist and this is what I learned this sized painting was called: a PORTRAIT, not a picture.  Granted, the character didn't say anything about his 'portrait.' However, I'll let you know if he does at some later point in the series.  If he does say anything, he won't say it until probably somewhere close the end of the series in season 3. Anyway—Just saying— :-)

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing that you also remember the "Portrait of Dorian Gray" and not what it's now supposedly 'always been' as the "Picture of Dorian Gray."  I know you're right that you and Regina Meredith and I are hardly the only ones who remember this title differently!  And certainly you are correct that a large painting of someone has long been known more often as a "portrait" than a "picture."  Thank you also for mentioning that there is a character, Dorian Gray, on the first Penny Dreadful series.  I've not watched that series, and it will be interesting to see whether the word "portrait" or "picture" is used in this show.

Toaster that kept coming back
South East England, U.K.

”The toaster that would not go away” is a funny Mandela effect experience that makes people laugh. My friend Tim, who lived in Chicago around 2012 had a broken toaster, so he threw it out to the trash bin. The trash was collected, but the next day, when he opened the cupboard, the toaster was back in its original place! It was the same make of toaster—the same everything. So the next week, Tim got hold of the toaster, and he made sure it was put in the trash can. A few days later, he discovered the toaster—but he said he found it in an unusual place, and not where he usually kept it. So the next time he went to throw it away, he dismantled the toaster completely, and made sure that he saw the trash can men take it away in bits on garbage day. It never returned.

Note from Cynthia: That experience with a toaster that kept coming back is amazing.  It reminds me of the kinds of Mandela Effect 'flip-flops' that people notice with things like the spelling of a business name, such as Costco going back and forth between Costco and Cosco for a while, and then settling down. But with the toaster experience, it's truly strange to have such clear, detailed, and specific memories, complete with muscle and motor memory of having physically taken action to discard that same toaster, only to have it keep coming back.  That's interesting that the only way it stopped coming back was after it was completely dismantled.  I notice sometimes when a device is not working well and I am seriously considering throwing it away, I have found that putting a replacement device right next to it (such as a working router next to the intermittently-working router), then the device that was seeming broken suddenly starts working at 100% reliability! 

Disappearing / Reappearing glass bulb pendant
Chicago, Illinois, USA

Just wanted to share another crazy story that happened a week ago! My eldest was disappointed showing me this necklace she has. It has a tiny glass bulb as a pendant that contains like these lavender pieces. Anyway, she was showing me the chain saying she was sad that the pendant was now lost. I examined it and said, "Aww, so it must've fallen off I guess? Bummer!" It's a very unique necklace. Anyhow, a day or 2 later I was cleaning my other kids rooms. I also cleaned off this small shelf that's in a small hallway by the kids' rooms. Then in the evening, I passed by the shelf and saw my eldest's necklace sitting on the shelf, and I saw the necklace had the bulb pendant on it! I yelled down to her and asked, "So you found your necklace pendant??" And she gave me this odd look, and I showed her the necklace. She took it, and was giving me a confused look. I continued on, "Wasn't the pendant missing?" Her response was scared, " yeah " But I find things like this awesome, amazing, magical! And I was more like excited, "WOW!! HOW WEIRD!!" But my eldest is a scaredy cat and didn't want to talk about it further, obviously freaked out how it showed up. Love these weird times!! :D Not sure if it could be a reason, but it happened the day of our most recent solar eclipse.

Note from Cynthia: Wow, this is such a great experience, finding your daughter's lavender glass bulb pendant, a couple of days after your daughter showed you it was lost, and had slipped off its chain.  I love these kinds of experiences, especially when something lost is found again!  When my daughters were young, and something went missing (which often was the case), we'd walk around saying, "Hope for reality shift!" while maintaining a joyful, relaxed, high-vibratory state, and many items would soon enough make their return, often in rather unexpected or unlikely places (such as my daughter's water shoes appearing up on her top bunk bed pillow--or a juice cup appearing atop the refrigerator).  In your case, perhaps it helped that your daughter took time to show the missing pendant to you, so together your shared love for the pendant might have served to bring you both to a reality where that pendant and its chain stayed together.

Donna new bushes arrived
Stop Light Comes and Goes and New Bushes Appeared
Kingston, Ontario, Canada

So a week or so ago, there was a new stop light on a road I have driven down almost daily (except in winter) since 2005. It just appeared one morning. Interestingly, if I think about the stop light when I am driving down that road, it will be there. If I don't, I don't know if it was there or not. Two shifts today. One is gone. The other is two bushes, about eight feet tall, looking like they have never been trimmed, are in front of the building next door. I swear they were not there any of the times I have taken my dog out the last two years, or, the four years I have lived in these buildings. I can see one of the trees from my living room. I have sat here the whole quarantine. I purposely moved the love seat in front of the window just so I could sit in an open window. I love sending these things to you.

Note from Cynthia: Wow, that is amazing about the stop light sometimes being there, and sometimes not, according to whether or not you're thinking of it.  That's such a beautiful tree to see outside your window--how amazing that you're certain it's not been there before when you have walked past it or looked out your window. 


(4) Mail Bag, Questions, and Answers

Dear Cynthia,
Sounds like some powerful transmitter(s) may be participating in your Boggle internet game. Possible soul(s) with OCD Foot Fetish? Is the Boggle game experiencing a ground hog day kind of effect? Is source telling the group with daily repeat words a highlighted message? Pay Attention, pay attention, pay attention. Or a powerful transmitter(s) thinking the words into manifestation in a repeat pattern influencing each outcome? Are these repeat words occurring because the group is expecting them to occur? Possible a master or more in the group having fun? Reading between lines are you letting us know that some of the Boggle words are predictive like the Horoscopes were? So much information in this short video. I am confused making the connection between Mandella effect, and how it exactly relates to words repeating.
— Eric

Dear Eric,
Thanks so much for asking this question about the connection between the Mandela Effect and the idea of words repeating when playing a game such as Boggle.  My actual experience with the Boggle game is that I personally find words that happen to be most clearly connected to whatever else I'm doing at that time, such as clearing my garden of combustible matter, such as dead foliage.  In that case, I get words associated with fire.  When I play Boggle with friends for game after game, those are the times that in such a setting, we start to notice that certain words will appear in every single game, beyond all probability.  These kinds of messages are of the sort I describe in my book, "Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World."  As the physicist John Archibald Wheeler pointed out, we live in what appears to be a highly Participatory Universe--and what I see is that we are constantly engaged in a running, never-ending conversation with the Universe.  We are thus creating all the time, not just when we think we are manifesting something.  
lots of love,


Hi Cynthia,
Thanks for your newsletter. I thought of you this morning because I have a clear plastic container sitting on the counter in front of my kitchen sink and for weeks  I could see a yellow stickie that I always thought was odd being in there because this box was filled with mostly jewelry supplies. I haven’t touched the box since I placed it there several weeks ago. Anyway, today, I noticed the stickie was gone! It made made me think of you as my brain tried unsuccessfully to rationalize how the stickie got out of the box. Now I’m just laughing.
— Marla

Dear Marla,
Oh, that's so wonderful!  It sounds like you've got a really playful stickie playing hide-and-seek with you--I love it!
lots and lots of love,


Good evening Ms Larson,
My name is Dali. I have seen you on youtube many times. I enjoy your lectures on youtube very much. I have been experiencing Mandela Effect for about 6 years. Well, I have actually noticed weird things before that time but I have brushed it off. When entering my journey of an awakening,that was when things really got weired for me. I have noticed changes in songs,foods,detergent products,movies, changes in celebrities name,store logo and so on. I think I have even noticed my own personal stuff change such as my middle name. Those are just a few experiences of many. The reason why I am contacting you is because I don't know what to do with all these experiences and I don't know who to talk to. I have mention this to some people. Even though some people have experienced some of the things I 've experienced, they brush it off. I unfortunately can't brush it off. Some of my personal memories of certain things such as my name changing,makes me wonder if it is just false memories.  I remember my middle name being spelled differently then what it is spelled at the moment. Family members would tell me something. Then another time, they would say that they never said what I remembered them saying. I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone, and I don't know what to do. ,I sometimes feel as if this reality isn't mine. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you.

Dear Dali,
Thanks so much for writing to me regarding not knowing what to do with all these experiences, and who to talk to.  There are growing numbers of people interested in the Mandela Effect, to the point that we're creating a new 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the International Mandela Effect Conference. Our next event is happening free, online, live-streaming this month from June 20-26th through our YouTube channel.  You can see the program schedule and learn more about it at:

Many of us--if not most of us--who are Mandela Effect-affected come from families and communities that do not largely recognize nor accept the validity of the Mandela Effect, reality shifts, or quantum jumps.  It's fine to discuss these topics with everyone, but it's also good to acknowledge that those people who are not (yet!) consciously aware of the fluidity of the time-space continuum, there's not much point in attempting to bring them up to speed.  It can be helpful, however, to see reports from others who start out accidentally shifting reality, and end up consciously quantum jumping from one possible reality to another.  I publish a monthly RealityShifters ezine dedicated to exploring these experiences, and you can subscribe to it and read all past issues online at:
With love and thanks,



Dear Cynthia,
I have written to you before regarding my personal shift experiences, but I want to hear what you think of a phenomenon I first noticed on 9/11. The phenomenon begins with a disaster, either pending or in progress.  Each time it is agreed that things are going to be very bad. There is no possible way things will not be dire. And then, as people from around the world focus on the event it.....gets much less dire. On 9/11 if you remember, there were supposed to be 50k people between the two towers on a busy Tuesday morning.  For days we watched as those numbers were adjusted down, down, down until fewer than 3000, including the victims in PA and at the Pentagon were counted. At the time, watching the numbers fall, I felt that something was happening. I didn't know anything about reality shifts at the time, but now I think we all participated in one in real time. I am seeing something similar happening with Covid. Over the last two weeks, I've seen alerts and articles popping up indicating the virus may not be as lethal or as communicable as we first feared (not the conspiracy theory stuff, BTW). My theory, and here is where I would like to know your thoughts, is that those of us in the globally connected, developed world who have not known suffering refuse to believe in it. Or perhaps we can't imagine it. As a result, when 2-3 billion minds focus on a terrorist attack or a pandemic, we may spin worst case scenarios to entertain ourselves, but our deep and fundamental disbelief that anything really bad could happen pushes the worst case scenario away. (Cuban missile crisis?) I think it's possible, as more and more people are born into comfortable circumstances, fewer people will accept suffering as a possible future. This will have a spiraling effect towards, for lack of a better word, grace. Fewer people suffering will mean fewer people who believe in suffering will result in fewer people suffering, and so on, and so forth. It's "how good can it get" on a planetary scale. Come to think of it, we already averted one planetary disaster. Remember the hole in the ozone layer? I am certain the natural world will respond to our beliefs. Years ago, I experienced a shift within a shift. I woke up in the middle of the night and turned on the TV to help me fall asleep. The first program I found was typical late night, two talking heads in a dark room, except one of the two was a Native American and he was being interviewed on the subject of buffalo in the Dakotas. The interviewer referenced a herd of buffalo being carefully monitored by conservationists.  They counted every head at the end of the summer, and then left the herd alone for 6 months, expecting to lose a few. Instead, they came back in the spring to find the herd had doubled! Every female would have had to calve twins, and there actually too many adults! The interviewer asked the Native, do your people have any stories about this? Maybe a hidden herd of buffalo that escaped our notice? He replied, “When the buffalo were being hunted to extinction, some went away to preserve their race. Now that it is safe, they came back.” The interviewer didn't understand and kept asking for the location these buffalo escaped to. The other man just repeated, “The Buffalo went away, and then the Buffalo came back.” I thought the whole thing was fascinating, but in the morning I found a listing for MASH in that time slot, and I was never sble to find that program again. I was also unable to find any reference to a herd of buffalo doubling in size. I think the whole thing was a shift about a shift. Sorry for the long message, but I think these two things correlate and are important. Thank you.

Dear Elena,
Yes, I've also noticed this tending toward Nature selecting what is best for all concerned--which coincidentally has been my long-standing daily favorite wish and blessing since I was 10 years old.  I love the way philosopher Nicholas Rescher's book Axiogenesis describes how and why this is the case, from a purely logical framework. I don't know if you remember the infamous countdown to Y2K, also known as the turnover from December 31, 1999 to January 1, 2000?  I worked in the Information Technology industry, where experts had long predicted global chaos on this infamous date that many ancient programs simply weren't designed to handle.  The earliest computers had saved storage space by only having a two digit code for the year, and many of these old programs were still running in many of our banks, schools, utilities, and government institutions.  Fortunately, the chaos expected to erupt at Y2K did not come to pass, and the world breathed a collective sigh of relief that was palpable on that New Year's day. I remember the shock that many people in the media expressed that year when it was announced that the American Bison had returned, but I don't recall seeing the specific news story you mention.  I do recall feeling surprised at how quickly the herd sizes were returning to stable size--that was amazing! And yes, I was noticing that we're seeing some remarkable miracles with the healing of the hole in the ozone layer--and many of the Mandela Effects seem to be providing us with instantaneous improvements, as I touched on in my Mandela Effect conference presentations in Idaho in 2019. I agree there currently exists global focus on covid-19 and desire that the severity of the virus will somehow diminish.  When we look back at the 1918 so-called "Spanish flu," I find it interesting that the end of the pandemic arrived at some point in 1920 when for some unknown reason, the Spanish flu loosened its grip on the world.  I've been thinking that most likely, combined human focus had a lot to do with the way the Spanish flu finally petered out, even though there was no cure nor vaccine. So yes, I feel you're exactly on the right track with this line of thinking, and I'm sure that those of us who know such shifts occur are bound to see continuing evidence of miraculous shifts in reality, including with covid-19.
lots of love and thanks,



Hi Cynthia,
Just sayin, I have distinct memory of a marketing jingle on TV as a kid. I’m a mid 60’s baby so, maybe from the 70’s or 80’s. “Stouffer’s Stove Top Stuffing - Good cookin’ with a down home taste.” I wonder if anyone else remembers this? My mom was a soaps addict so, this jingle is embedded in my memory thru the teen years, at least.
— Lisa

Dear Lisa,
I love that you remember the advertising jingle--that is just super! I personally wasn't watching much TV or TV ads when it would have been on (plus I would actively tune advertisements out), but I am certain other people will have some memory about what they heard on the StoveTop Stuffing ads. I definitely only ever remember having heard Stouffer's StoveTop Stuffing—that is for sure! Even though mysteriously now they only seem to specialize in frozen meals. Which seems very, very strange to me.
lots of love,


Hi Cynthia,
There are no words to describe how incredible, wonderful, inspirational and joy filled the conference has been. The only way to donate that I saw on the web site was an orange button that went thru youtube. Just wondering if the group could publish options to donate. Can a check be sent to the Branford address? Others may want to know this also. I couldn't figure out how to send a video for the montage, not good at tech stuff. The montage came out beautifully. Many Thanks and Much Love,
— Joanne

Dear Cynthia,
Is it true that when you were a kid you could turn the rain off at will? Is it possible to learn these skills?
— Mark

Dear Mark,
Thanks for writing to me with this question.  Yes, when I was a young child, I felt at one with the rain while daydreaming and gazing out the window at it, and then noticed that when I thought, "Stop rain" it would stop, and "Start rain" it would start.  Many decades later, I was in a similarly energized, relaxed, "high vibe" state of mind and was outside in the rain when I thought "Stop rain" and then a few minutes later it stopped, and "Start rain" and a couple of minutes later it would start... and I wondered, "Why isn't it instantaneous like when I was very young?" and then realized that now as an adult, I 'knew' that rain takes time to fall down from the clouds, so high above, and so on a subconscious level, my mind was allowing time for that.  I laughed to myself, and realized I was doing better as a child who didn't know that rain fell from way up high in the clouds, and with refreshed awareness of what was possible was able to think "Stop rain" and the rain stopped instantly, like it did when I was a child.  I'm sure it is possible to learn these skills; I was noticing while playing on the website during this year's IMEC conference that this website is rather good at providing feedback for how well one is doing at attaining very "high-vibe" states of mind--and it's free to play!


Hi Cynthia,
I really enjoyed watching ME conference last week, a lot of information and great speakers. I also recently watched on Gaia your interview with  Regina Meredith from May 2020. You mentioned that you can do scrolling realities. And you said that if you go to the hall and you forgot why you came - play with this and it will be different reality. Can you clarify what do you mean by "play with this"? Can you give me an example. Do I understand this correctly? Let's say that I have some dreams  or issues that I want to resolve. But I went to the hall with something not related to my dream like looking for can opener (or my comb or glass of water etc.). And I forgot the reason I came for. Should I visualize (think, say, imagine) the best outcome for my dream (or issues not related to trip to the hall)? Do you mean "play with his" is playing with completely different subject, not that one I came for and forgot? Or you mean playing with this will help me to remember why I came for? May be you have an article with the description of this technique, so I can read it. Thank you so much, I appreciate your help.
— Nadia

Dear Nadia,
Essentially, I am suggesting that we are jumping / shifting between realities constantly.  We can take advantage of being in a Theta / daydream state of mind when walking down hallways, going on nature hikes, driving in our cars on relaxing drives, and so forth.  The advantage of walking down one's hallway is that it's a regular daily activity for most people, and thus lends itself quite well to attaining a daydreamy state of mind when walking down the usual hallway.  There is an advantage in practicing attaining a daydreamy state of mind, and there's the opportunity for each person to "play with this" and see how it works for them. There are benefits in attaining a playful daydream state of mind, rather than striving and working consciously to hold a certain vision in mind.  Each person is so unique that there is no "one-size-fits-all" recipe for success here.  The most important aspects are one's inner alignment with all aspects of self (such as head, heart, gut), and getting into an optimal state of being, with a sense of childlike wonder and joy, in a Theta brainwave state that's kind of day-dreamy, while simultaneously feeling delighted, excited, happy, and grateful.  These are not the typical kinds of "how to" steps that most people can easily follow--but regaining and retaining that childlike sense of wonder is so helpful for success in all of this.
lots of love,

Original Politics
By Glenn Aparicio Parry

Envisioning an American Renaissance

Original Politics explores the secret, long-neglected history of America's indigenous roots, to dazzling effect.  American history is greatly enriched by remembering that Ben Franklin once said, "No European who has tasted Savage Life can afterwards bear to live in our societies."  If Franklin were alive in contemporary times, he would probably choose to express this sentiment with more politically correct phrasing.  Yet Franklin's feelings of respect and admiration for indigenous people would surely remain.  Most Americans would be surprised to learn that many ideals and principles we consider to be "truly American" are indeed truly American--they are truly native American.  A few examples of such principles include: the concept of inalienable (natural) rights; a free and egalitarian society; government derived from the just powers from the consent of the governed; informal caucusing to promote understanding of diverse points of view; and women having a voice in government. The first half of Original Politics provides shining insights into the early history of the United States of America; the second half delves into how America might continue to learn from Native American influence to evolve into an inclusive, harmonious society. Original Politics describes the evolved and devolved expressions of unitive consciousness, and the way that America's founding fathers appreciated the minimalist quality of Native American government.  This minimalist approach evolved and grew, with an emphasis on "living in accordance with perennial wisdom passed down by oral tradition."  During these extraordinary times of "apocalypse" (meaning revelation of truth), it may seem that many long-standing systems are breaking down.  Parry encourages us to remain optimistic, noting that the Acoma Pueblo people make new pots by starting with shards of old pots, to include ancestral wisdom and energy.  In these apocalyptic times, we will do well to hold reverence for respectful dialogue, with an emphasis on peace, harmony, and functional communications and operations in all levels of society.  Original Politics invites us to recognize that our greatest national resources include the way that we, the people, relate to the land.  We have much to learn about ways of respectfully, peacefully, harmoniously and functionally interacting with the Earth, ourselves, and others. Original Politics invites us to learn from the revelations of seemingly apocalyptic (revelatory) times, and experience a re-visioning and rebirth of the United States of America. 


By Mary Rose Barrington

A primer on basic reality shifts and personal Mandela Effects by a world-class researcher

JOTT stands for "Just One of Those Things," and it involves the mysterious matter of seemingly everyday objects appearing, disappearing, reappearing, and sometimes being transformed.  Author Mary Rose Barrington affectionately calls such incidences "jotts" or "jottles," as she sorts them into various typologies.  "Flyaways" are objects that vanish; "Turn-Ups" are objects that appear; "Windfalls" are objects that show up that had never previously been around; "Comebacks" are objects that had disappeared and then reappeared; "Walkabouts" are objects that seem to move to some new location that is not where you know you left them; and "Trade-Ins" are items that seem quite different than what they used to be.  One of my favorite things about JOTT is that it was written by a researcher born in the 1920s who was keenly aware that instances of objects disappearing, reappearing, teleporting, and appearing-out-of-nowhere were matters of common knowledge over a century ago.  JOTT references several articles on "Jottles" written by Barrington, going back to the early 1990s; Barrington was clearly fascinated with this topic.  Some of the detailed reports included in JOTT occurred as early as the 1950s, and Barrington pointed out that this phenomenon has a history going much farther back even than that.  Barrington writes,  "In our time, we seldom hear reports of sensational macro-phenomena said to have taken place during the 100 years starting mid-nineteenth century, when many people believed that such things were possible and that they could be evoked by the human endeavor, usually with input from the supposed spirit world." [1] Many of JOTT's first-hand reports came from submissions following an article from the magazine, "The Unexplained," that described what we now recognize as personal Mandela Effects or reality shifts, asking readers to please write in with any of their experiences.  While the first half of JOTT involves descriptions, examples, and the categorical typography of jotts, or jottles, the second half of the book provides the reader with a view of how this phenomena fits within the broader range of various types of psychic/intuitive and metaphysical phenomena.  Barrington attributes the JOTT phenomenon to being related to Cosmic Mind, and recognizes that these experiences are relatively widespread, and have been around for quite a long time.  I am extremely grateful to have found this delightfully informative and engaging book, after having dedicated more than twenty years to studying this exact same phenomena, and never having heard of Barrington, her work, the terms "jott" and "jottles," or this book.  Truly we are living in interesting times, when the research about the same topic is being conducted in different niches, with Barrington apparently unaware of reality shifts as documented by authors such as myself and PMH Atwater, and the ever-expanding awareness of the general public of personal Mandela Effects.  Highly recommended!
