Changing the Physical Universe With Our Thoughts and
Shifting Reality by Asking
When I gave a talk last week at the Health & Harmony Festival
in Santa Rosa, I was greatly impressed with how quickly people
grasped the significance of reality shifts as being the
source of synchronicity, remote healing, and manifestation --
and how reality shifts act as a reflection of our inner sense
of harmony or angst. I could tell how well people understood my
presentation by the high quality of questions they asked
at the end of my talk.
IONS researcher Dr. Dean Radin &
in specially shielded room
This month I've been asked some truly wonderful questions
such as, "What can I do when what I am feeling disappointed
in what I am creating in my life?", and "How much of an effect
does destiny or fate have in influencing what happens?", and
"If so many of us are praying for things to get better... why
does it seem like they keep going wrong?" Good questions are
the heart and soul of good science, and the seeds from which
When Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) researcher Dean
Radin asks good questions like, "Do people physiologically
react to randomly generated external stimuli before the
stimuli occur?", he leaps into action and creates experiments
which systematically test precognition. To rule out possible
visual cues or other electromagnetic effects, subjects are
placed in a comfortable chair in a specially screened room
which is draped with esthetically pleasing curtains to help
experimental subjects feel as much at home as possible
(considering probes are attached to their bodies).
You can participate in this research by visiting http://www.gotpsi.org/,
and read more about scientific experiments exploring psychokinesis and
extra-sensory perception in Radin's excellent book THE
The secret of asking good questions is that whatever we ask
with a clear intention to find out and power with true desire
to know the answer, will be answered. Any time I ask a
question, even silently to myself, the answer comes zooming
back to me -- sometimes even before I've finished asking the
question! I find myself hearing a news story about my object
of inquiry, seeing something in print on the topic, or
synchronistically meeting a subject matter expert on it.
Failing these wonderful sources, I'll see license plates that
spell out the answer, or flip whatever book is nearby open to
some random page and read a passage that appears to be written
as a direct reply to my query. This effect has intensified
greatly as I've increased the amount of meditation I do each
day, and practiced keeping my thoughts as clear as possible
of frustration or anger about the past and worries and fears
about the future. I'm still human, so I still get worried
and frustrated -- but I carry less "dirty energy" around me
on a constant basis.
We start our lives with our full cosmic energy body powers
shining brightly and no "dirty energy" in our energy fields --
and when we take care to renew our energetic health, we can
restore these creative abilities to their full strength.
This is possible in spite of whatever socialization and
education we've received along the way, provided we open
our minds to new possibilities. Witnessing or even reading
about reality shifts can be the key to helping you open
your minds and heart to miracles, and the idea that you
can be and are a very important part of them. And if you
find yourself wondering, "Now how can that be?"... get ready
to find out!
Wishing you all the best,
Cynthia Sue Larson

Odyssey Finds Water Ice in Abundance Under Mars' Surface
Using instruments on NASA's 2001 Mars Odyssey spacecraft,
surprised scientists have found enormous quantities of buried
treasure lying just under the surface of Mars -- enough water

the tip of the iceberg.
Airborne Bugs 'May Control our Weather'
A team of University of East London (UEL) researchers
believe the airborne bugs may be behind the formation
of clouds and rainfall. The ability to manipulate the
environment in this way would facilitate the microbes'
dispersal and reproduction, the UK scientists claim.
Using a £130,000 grant the team plans to spend 18 months
testing the theory that a self-sustaining ecosystem
exists in clouds. The study will also help scientists
understand the movement of airborne pathogens like
Mood Linked To Cognitive Abilities
In a study of how human emotional states influence higher
mental abilities, cognitive neuroscientists at Washington
University in St. Louis have shown that watching even 10
minutes of classic horror films or prime-time television
comedies can have a significant short-term influence on
areas of the brain critical for reasoning, intelligence,
and other types of higher cognition. "To have the best
mental performance and the most efficient pattern of brain
activity, you need a match between the type of mood you
are in and the type of task you are doing," said Jeremy
Gray, Ph.D., a Research Scientist in the Psychology
Department in Arts & Sciences and lead author of the study.

A New Thinking Emerges About Consciousness: Descartes
Notwithstanding, Some Neuroscientists Find the Answer in
Chemistry, Not Philosophy
By Shankar Vedantam
What is consciousness? French philosopher Rene Descartes
suggested that consciousness is like an "observer" in the head,
separate from the physical brain. In recent years, philosophers
studying cognition began to call this "the hard problem."
(2) Your Reality Shift
Thanks to all of you who have shared a reality shift story
us from wherever you are in the world!
Your stories help to remind us of the amazing things that are
possible and the opportunities that can open up when reality
shifts in our lives. Together, our experiences help us better
understand what is going on in this amazing, conscious universe.
Your site is amazing. I never knew that these things happened at all
and that there are even websites about them. Then I got to thinking and
realized that maybe some reality shifts have happened to me.
My grandfather passed away six years ago after a long illness.
His brother passed away a couple of weeks ago and on the day that his
brother (my great uncle) was being waked I was walking to work and was
thinking of my grandfather and how much I missed him. I was lost in
thought for a while but when I looked up, there was an old man walking
towards me wearing a long overcoat and a fedora (my grandfather always
wore a fedora, and these days you never see anyone wearing them) I
thought that was weird. As the man got closer, I realized he didn't
look like my grandfather, but he reminded me of him by what he was
wearing. The man made complete eye contact with me and I can't explain
the chill that went through my body, it was like I felt the presence of
my grandfather, I 'd never felt like that before. After he passed me I
was literally shaking. And before I even turned around, I said to
myself "Imagine if the man I just seen is gone, wouldn't that be weird?"
and sure enought I turned around and the street behind me was empty. It
was the most bizarre experience I've ever had, but it made me happy
because I know, I just KNOW my grandfather was there with me for a split

DISAPPEARING/REAPPEARING WATCH & CAT
Just went through your ezine, and as usual enjoyed it very much.
I would like to share some experiences I had with you. The first
one is kind of "basic". The other is a little bit more interesting,
at least for me.
Well yes, I lost my watch, and I did exactly as you instruct in
your web site. I found it below my computer keyboard several days
later. I use my computer around 10 hours a day. I never do put my
watch at that place, and I live alone!
The more interesting one is kind of scary. About the time you put
out last month's ezine, I was reading through the realityshifters.com,
looking into the depths I haven't reached before. I ended up at the
page you post the results of the survey. I read through the questions
and was intrigued by the question "have you ever seen animal, people or
things disappear and reappear". Well, somehow I was stuck at this
question. Sometime later I got up and called my cat, Sushi. She was
nowhere to be found. Living in the big city I don't let her out
usually. I looked everywhere she may hide. Considering she might have
slipped out while I was taking a delivery or something, I went out and
looked everywhere. I know how good a cat be in hiding, but I literally
looked in every hole in the house, whether it seemed possible or not
possible for her to get in. Yet, she wasn't around. I was pretty sure she
ran away. Not being able get the survey question out of my head, I sat,
earthed myself, wished for a reality shift, and released my wish for
finding her. I said to myself "If she really wanted to go, there must be
reason. Good for her if she did". I got back to work, and after some time
she appeared just behind me from nowhere, yawning and stretching, as
if she was sleeping on the couch the whole time!!! I still don't
know where she might have been, but the timing was extremely weird!
MISSING EARRING REAPPEARS
Montpelier estate, Virginia
I was selling jewelry at a wine festival two weekends ago at the Montpelier
estate, near Orange, Virginia, east of Charlottesville. A lady came by to
try on a small pair of malachite earrings. We found that she needed a
larger, plastic back to hold the earring in the proper place on her ear. I
turned to get the earring backs from my briefcase, and when I again turned
to be in front of her, she said she could not find the second earring. Her
husband was standing beside her and said that he saw it on a white card.
We looked all around where the earring should have been, looked on the
ground in the grass at her feet, looked in her purse, but no earring. Then
I told them that it was a Reality Shift, and that the earring would show
up. I produced a duplicate, she bought the pair, said she would come back,
but didn't return. Interestingly enough the woman mentioned that this had
happened to her regarding "papers on her desk", and was glad to know what
to call it! You guessed it, I was telling my husband about the incident,
looked down on the table where the earring should have been before, and
there it was. No, we did not have too much wine at the time! I only
wished that the lady had returned, because she needed to see this!
TIME STOPPED DURING REIKI
I was really impressed by your website and it's key topic,
realityshifting! We share similiar interests, right down to
Quantum Physics and David Bohm.
I've noticed time standing still and objects appearing to move.
I was attuned to Reiki back in 1998, and along with that gift
came the ability to see "prana", better know in physics terms
as "molecular movement". I see specks around me when I
relax. You might see it, too. When I do Reiki, especially on my
head, the specks move much faster. It's a bit like micro-waving
oneself and the surroundings. Out of this has come the ability
to play "stupid people tricks," such as watching things disappear.
Garden hoses are great for this. Yellow hoses throw purple
auras and green ones throw a reddish tone. I practice looking
at something close to the hose, like several inches or a foot
near it, keeping the vague image of another part of the hose
in my outer view. After a while the part of the hose in the
corner of my eye starts to get holographic, fat, fuzzy and one
can see thru it, then it disappears. If I look directly at the
disappearing part it comes back instantly. Same with auras,
one cannot look directly. Do you play any of these games?
I made my hand disappear. Pressed it up against a wall and
looked to one side of it and watched as it got fatter, then
flattened out and looked like a hologram. I could see through
it, but it was there. A bit more time, and it disappeared.
I was doing Reiki several weeks ago and sat down to do it
after I checked the clock. It was after 10 PM. I timed myself to
get in a couple of hours daily, in spurts. I turned off the
light and did Reiki, and then when I was through, turned on
the lights and checked the clock to see when I finished. The
clock still said 10 PM, as did all the clocks in the house. I
know I did Reiki for about an hour, and I know I started at
10 PM. This stuck in my mind so much that I emailed a couple
of friends about it.
I'm so absent minded my purse, keys, etc., could move all
over the house and I would think I did it. Unless they
moved to a top shelf in the closet!
I've had more than a few interesting things happen in my
life. I'm sure most other people have too, but they often either
turn away and fail to recognize them, or are so frightened that
they aren't curious. I'm frightened sometimes too, but mostly
When I was 17, I had a "missing time" episode. I lost the
better share of a whole day! I can tell you the day had been
perfectly normal up to that point. Then it was just over! When
it had just been late morning, suddenly it was late evening.
My friends that I was with that day all had the same strange
sensation. One of them refused to talk about it, but two of
them said that they acted just as if was perfectly normal for
the day to be over, when we knew it wasn't. Ten hours of
that day just vanished. And very few people mentioned it.
This incident has bothered me for 24 years. It's very strange
the way some people reacted to that incident, too. My friends
and I were all in a large city park that day. There were people
all around us, and yet everyone seemed to accept the end of
the day as if it were normal! I did, too, for the most part.
The difference in my experience was that I had plans with my
family that I was looking forward to that evening. My parents
and I didn't get to do what we had wanted to do that evening,
and when I asked my mom about it, she put a whole new light
on things. She said, "Sometimes things just change." She was
very attuned to such things, and swore that there were reality
shifts, she just didn't call them that. But sometimes she would
say things like "Well, it's different, now". When things weren't
where they belonged or when time messed up, she accepted
it because "Well, it's different, now". This didn't happen all the
time, but it happened in her life quite frequently, or perhaps she
was just more attuned to the changes. I must say some of
these things still bother me. I'm not quite as accepting as my
Granted it's easy enough to say that these things didn't
really happen, that when I was 17, I just lost track of the time
while hanging out with my friends. But I know that is not what
happened. Several other people besides me had the same
experience that day, and I can't ignore the fact that my family
didn't get to do what we'd planned for that evening.
MYSTERIOUS TOWN APPEARS
For various reasons, I don't believe that reality is stationary.
I've had too many incidents that would indicate that not just
my reality...but REALITY as a whole has changed. I once came
across a town in Colorado that didn't exist. I was southwest
of Denver on Hwy 285 (an area I've been very familiar with
my whole life) when on one occasion my then-husband, myself,
and my two daughters came upon a town that didn't belong
there. But there it was.
I was astonished to see an entire functioning town that I had
never seen before, with people, houses, and cars. I saw no
school, but there was a post office. We noticed a couple of
interesting shops, so we stopped and walked around. We had
ice cream, and sat wondering where on Earth we were. I don't
recall the name of the town now, but at the time I went so far
as to write it down. Later, when I checked on a better map than
the one we had in the car, I confirmed that the town did not exist.
And let's not forget that this is a part of the state that I knew like
the back of my hand for 20 years prior to this! To say this was
interesting is an understatement. Of course on other trips
through the area, the town was not there.
It could be said that when we discovered the town that wasn't
there, we had taken a wrong turn. This explanation is just not
a possibility. I know that often enough things like that can
happen, but this was not one of those times.

Two wonderful books are reviewed here this month:
MOMENTS by Phil Cousineau and PSI:
What it is and
How it Works by Keith Chandler.
Soul Moments: Marvelous Stories of
Synchronicity-Meaningful Coincidences from a Seemingly Random
by Phil Cousineau
Sate Your Appetite for Synchronicity
Seldom does one book manage to capture the mood and feeling
of the hidden energies behind the mysterious synchronicities in our lives
as well as Phil Cousineau's scintillating SOUL MOMENTS. From the first
opening pages, this book transports the reader to a universe in which any
and every synchronous experience is possible, and may well happen to you.
Just as Cousineau noted that synchronous events became much more prevalent
in his life as he worked on SOUL MOMENTS, so too will the reader find these
wondrous experiences begin to grace this otherwise hum-drum, workaday
world. Suddenly we discover there is magic all around us, and it's for
I would love to tell you which synchronicity stories are my favorites from
this beautiful collection -- but in truth, I find them all to be sparkling
in clarity and bright with inspiration. After reading the moving accounts
shared by observant individuals from all walks of life (including Larry
Dossey and Huston Smith), even the smallest things no longer seem
Treat yourself to a deeper view of the world that grows on you with each
passing story, and get yourself a copy of SOUL MOMENTS. This is a book
you'll treasure for years to come.
PSI: What It Is & How It Works
by Keith Chandler
A Masterpiece of Clear Thinking
For those of us who know that extra-sensory perceptions (or
cognitions) and other forms of "psi" are real, the obvious next step in our
quest for deeper understanding of metaphysics is to find workable models.
Keith Chandler's book PSI is a tour de force of insight into the inner
workings of phenomena such as telepathy, precognition, clairvoyance, and
psychokinesis as it presents a thoughtful and inspired model of reality
that includes these "psi" phenomena.
Chandler presents the notion that remembering within the field of Cosmic
Mind could well be the key to learning how it is possible for people to
know what's going on in locations geographically far away, or off in the
distant future. While Chandler admits to limited experience with some of
the phenomena he includes in PSI (such as future memory), he nonetheless
maintains an open mind and a keen eye to correlating personal and anecdotal
experiences with viable scientific theories and experimental results.
Written in the style of an erudite professor and packed with eye-opening
references to current scientific research (from REM sleep to the honeybee's
"wiggle dance" and remote viewing), PSI takes the reader to a place of
epiphany where for at least one shining moment -- it all makes sense. I
highly recommend this book to anyone who genuinely wishes to consider new
models of reality that include "psi" phenomena.
