Create Your Best Life!
Welcome Surprises

    "We can't become what we need to be
    by remaining what we are."
    -- Oprah Winfrey
We are part of a larger tapestry in life, and sometimes when we don't get what we think we want, things turn out even better than we could have hoped. This is precisely what I discovered one unusual day which began with me holding a quarter while feeling angst about running late for catching the local subway to an Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) meeting in San Francisco. As I lifted my quarter up to place it in the coin slot to purchase my ticket, I was astonished to feel the coin melt like soft, warm putty in my hand. I unsuccessfully attempted to put it into the slot, hoping it might straighten itself out. The coin wouldn't even go half way into the slot, and cooled into a curved C-shape. Since I only had exact change with me, I was upset to hear my train approaching the station downstairs, knowing that there was no way I could buy my ticket in time to board it.

Frantically, I turned and ran back across the parking lot to get more change from my car. This time I grabbed a fist full of change, to be on the safe side! I ran to the ticket machine and purchased my ticket with a sinking feeling as I heard the train I was waiting for taking off on the track below me. I knew I'd missed my train, but I also knew that sometimes these things happen for a reason. I began a meditation there on a bench in the station, breathing in love, and assuring myself that everything was working out exactly for the best. When the next train pulled into the station, I walked on, with one of Edgar Mitchell's books tucked under my arm. I gazed around the crowded train car, seeking any face that looked friendly or familiar, since there weren't many places left to sit. As I looked at one man, I felt a strong pull of energetic attraction as I saw an image of Edgar Mitchell's face above his face in my mind's eye. I asked him if I might sit next to him, and he agreed. As soon as I sat down, he looked at the book I was carrying, and asked if I was going to the IONS meeting in San Francisco, because that's where he was heading, too! In that moment, I understood why the quarter had melted in my hand... although I was still so annoyed with that quarter that I threw it into the first indigent's hat I saw when I arrived in San Francisco!

In hindsight, I now know that I would not have met the man I needed to meet unless I'd been slightly delayed that day of the IONS meeting. A bending quarter was just what I needed to make sure I boarded exactly the right train that day. As it turned out, the man I met discovered on that very day that his research project was approved, and I was delighted to meet him at such an auspicious time.

Chances are pretty good that when you look back honestly at even the most annoying times in your life, you will see how you were given a gift of becoming exactly what you most needed to become.
lots of love,

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Ellen Louise Kahne

After I fried four alternators in my car over a period of several months (for no apparent reason which the mechanics could find), I mentioned this to one of my students, as I had to get rid of the car, because it couldn't be satisfactorily repaired. My student (a Reiki Master whom I trained years ago) simply laughed, as she recalled incidents of her own similar to this (and those which had happened to other Reiki Masters).

When I first began to teach, I attuned 21 students in my first class. Three of them had tape recorders running throughout the attunement (or energy initiation). The tape recorders all broke down and would not work again even when the batteries were changed several times. I told the students to apply Reiki to the recorders, and all were once again fully functional after receiving energy treatments for periods ranging from three days to two weeks.

Also, after teaching a class or attuning students, I've noticed that I have to reign in my energies or I will blow lightbulbs and fuses. I've conked out all six bulbs in my dining room chandelier and my six light bathroom fixture more times than I'd like to count after teaching a class. As one may imagine, this gets to be expensive after a while.

I've had students who've walked to the subway under street lights after a class and heard them go, pop, pop, pop, all in a row as they've walked beneath them.

I've noticed that I've "fried" electrical devices by focusing on them. This can work the other way, too, as I've resurrected a dead computer hard drive or two, as well as dead auto batteries, by using Reiki. Two alternators on my car conked out while I was driving on the Verrazano Bridge; in spite of it, I managed to drive my car home a distance of at least 10 miles by using Reiki after the alternator failed.

These kind of experiences are not so uncommon in Reiki lore, as my first teacher told me that four Reiki Masters of her acquaintance drove an entire weekend back and forth between Atlantic City and New York city in a car with a dead alternator. When the owner/Reiki Master brought the car in for repair, the service manager was astonished. He asked how in the world the car had managed to get to his shop without a working alternator.

A long time ago, I was a member of a small metaphysical group and school. We were taught to do most everything through the heart, so whenever we came together, we would imagine a line coming from the heart and going around our circle, attaching all our hearts. We'd then imagine the "line" spinning until it lifted up of its own accord and raised up. It would go as high as it could, based on the intent and power of the group, and would then come together in a point in the middle. It would then fall from the top in to the center of the circle and the Earth. I have used this many times on my own with groups, even in very large groups, and it's always brought amazing results. Children will quiet down, and adults will pay attention.

I always do it left to right. I look at the person next to me and the next etc. Sometimes it takes a while to look at each person in the circle, but longer, but it always seems extremely effective. I did this heart connections circle exercise at a very large outside event with Sun Bear, where it was chaos to begin with. I could tell all the energy was flying everywhere to no avail. I was truly amazed to see how fast it worked. This was a prime example of spirit at work, because I felt a strong impulse to help create a sense of community and harmony in a way that was highly effective yet anonymous, with no personal agenda.

I also used this heart connection circle technique during a large gathering for the Dalai Lama. Once again, I got a strong impulse to ground the energy for peace, as he was urging us to do. There were lots of "men in black" protecting the Dalai Lama from death threats. In the auditorium, with all that love pouring from him and the audience, we watched as the men in black stood in front of the stage... and fell asleep! I don't think they get much love from the public. We watched out for them, too.

On another occasion in a metaphysical class, we had difficulty with a dentist in a neighboring office who appeared to think we were the Devil. We sent white light, and the situation got worse. We found that white light was too stimulating. The best color for calming the situation down was pink, although golden light was also pretty effective.

I discovered when driving in lots of traffic when I project white light, all the vehicles crowed around me to bathe in it. HELP. So I used Golden light and that worked great. WE all spread out. What a relief - especially when surrounded with all those big trucks!

(5) Reality Shifters Q & A

Q: Hi Cynthia,

Can you give me guidance on how to make my aura stronger? I am currently having Reiki performed for medical purposes, but am going to start studying and hopefully be attuned soon. Do you have any suggestions?
-- Kathy

A: Dear Kathy,

Reiki is a wonderful tool for strengthening your aura! It is also beneficial to do four steps of setting protection as well. These steps are:

(1) GROUND -- visualize a grounding cord running from the base of your spine to the center of the earth. Imagine that all your worries slip down, down, down and away from you. Let go of all energy that isn't yours... and all your concerns about the past. As you ground, also intend that your crown chakra is connected to divine energy from above... so that all extraneous energies will get washed right through you as the divine energy flows down through you, on down to the ground.

(2) SET YOUR AURIC BOUNDARY -- stretch your arms out around you, with the intention that you are setting an impermeable shield around yourself. Just like spaceships have tough outer shells, so can you! Only allow unconditional love to reach you. This is sometimes called "sealing the aura."

(3) CUT ENERGY CORDS -- sever the cords that connect you to those who have hooked into you in ways that have made you feel not-so- good. Use your hands to clap in front of you, and move one hand toward you and the other toward whoever hooked into your energy... bringing healing to you both.

(4) CALL ON ARCHANGELS -- archangels Michael, Raphael, Gabriel, and Uriel will set protection around you and your surroundings, and can handle even the toughest situations... keeping your energy in great shape so you'll feel a lot better and have better luck, too.

lots of love,
-- Cynthia

What the Bleep

What the Bleep Do We Know!?

by William Arntz, Betsy Chasse, Mark Vicente

A Film for Those with Open Minds Who Seek Better Questions

"What the #$*! Do We Know!?" is a new kind of spiritual film, which fuses a documentary montage style with the unfolding of a dramatic story and amazing animation. BLEEP takes the viewer on a thrilling tour of the boundaries of what we know, while introducing us to some of the newest concepts in the field of consciousness. Is it possible that words and ideas can change the very quality of physical matter? Do we really have an infinite range of choices available to us at any given moment? Is it possible that there are things right in front of us that are invisible to us until other people start to see them? BLEEP raises these questions and many more, and provides scintillating answers that raise even more intriguing questions. Indeed, the best way for us to learn what is really going on is to ask better questions... and watching "What the #$*! Do We Know!?" is one of the best ways to start asking better questions. "What the #$*! Do We Know!?" tells the story of Amanda, played by Oscar-winning actress Marlee Matlin, who feels like her whole world as she knew it is coming undone, to be replaced by something strange, unknown, and new. Amanda's attitudes and assumptions expand dramatically through extraordinary dreams and remarkable encounters in waking life. Interwoven in the story of Amanda's awakening to fuller realization are documentary clips with fourteen mystics and scientists. These interviews provide a delightful counterpoint to what is happening to Amanda as she considers how she is more in charge of her life and better connected to everyone and everything else than she previously would have believed. When Amanda is given a photographic assignment that requires her to face painful memories from her past, she discovers new ways to view her experiences and a bigger sense of herself that allows her to gain strength, courage and inspiration at a time when she might otherwise have felt sad, small, and defeated. Amanda brings us on our own journey of self-discovery, as we wonder how we might reframe painful memories into life stories that reflect our more heroic, loving nature. "What the #$*! Do We Know!?" brings about positive life changes for viewers, because it presents a framework for how to reclaim mental, physical and spiritual health even in the most difficult times. "What the #$*! Do We Know!?" is the perfect film for everyone who has an open mind and would like to ask more interesting questions... in order to discover more interesting answers.

The Hidden Messages in Water

by Masaru Emoto

Dramatic Photos of Effects of Thoughts on Water

THE HIDDEN MESSAGES IN WATER is packed with photographs of water droplets which have been frozen for two hours and magnified 200 to 500 times. These large, glossy photos look something like snowflakes, where no two images are identical -- yet certain patterns become immediately apparent. Japanese researcher Masaru Emoto describes in this book how his original quest to depict the natural beauty of water led him to discover that clean, pure water from natural unpolluted sources looks much more brilliant in color and more symmetrical in shape than chemically treated or polluted water. This assertion is made abundantly clear when one views the various images in this book and sees for oneself how chemically treated water crystals appear dark and misshapen while clean water appears bright and jewel- like. Emoto could have stopped his research there and still had an amazing book, but he continued his ground-breaking research to experiment with treating water with a variety of phrases, music, and prayer -- showing how our words, thoughts, and feelings have a visceral effect on water. This extraordinary book is a must for anyone who wishes to see for themselves what effect pollution and stressful thoughts and feelings are having on Earth's water -- and how we can change these effects with meditation, prayer, healing words, and music. Since most of our bodies and most of the surface of the Earth is made of water, THE HIDDEN MESSAGES IN WATER has tremendous significance for us all.

Soul Bared

Soul Bared
A Metaphysical Journey

by David L. Oakford

Experience the Agony & Ecstasy of a Near Death Experience

SOUL BARED tells the heart-wrenching tale of one man's near death experience in 1979. Author David Oakford set his pride aside to describe every aspect of his experience, including the not-so-flattering descriptions of how he came so close to death through a drug overdose. As each gland and organ in his body shut down, one by one, he could hear and see how it's song and rhythm stilled to silence... until all that remained was an eerie silence. Oakford's attention next turned to his immediate surroundings, and how he was confused to find that although he could move about, running was difficult... and although he could see and hear things, he could not see his reflection in a mirror and nobody seemed to hear him even when he shrieked and cried. SOUL BARED really takes off when Oakford meets his guardian angel, who he calls Bob. Bob helped to explain the meaning of the colored auras that Oakford saw around everyone and everything, describing how each person's aura is useful in viewing to see how much and what kind of work needs to be done for that person's best development. The more brilliant the color, the higher the vibration. Bob went on to describe elemental energy beings, dark souls, the spirit of Gaia and beings of higher vibration, as Oakford looked around at the world through new eyes. The chapters in which Oakford describes meeting a group of angelic spirits are extraordinary for their clarity, as Oakford describes the choice he was given before returning to his body and resuming his life. I am deeply moved by SOUL BARED, as it inspires me to live up my true spiritual nature and original purpose on Gaia at this time. Readers who have had near death experiences will especially love this book, as it's the next best thing to feeling all the agony and ecstasy of a near death experience. I give this book my highest recommendation.

A Hidden Order

A Hidden Order
Uncover Your Life's Designs

by Winter Robinson

Discover the Joy of Your Authentic Self

A HIDDEN ORDER helps you find your core essence, while discovering the path of least resistance and maximum joy in your life. Author Winter Robinson provides exercises and shares fascinating real-life stories to help us better understand how beautifully all the aspects of our lives come together when we practice listening to intuition and reading the more subtle road signs in life. The hidden order Robinson describes "is rapidly making itself known, suggesting to every one of us that there is spiritual evolution going on; that we have the potential to rid the world of fear, confusion, chaos, and greed and bring humankind into harmony with nature and the cosmos." Much of the confusion in the world can be cleared when we take time to meditate, feel the energies all around us, and discern the difference between what we truly need and what we may have thought we wanted. A HIDDEN ORDER is written in two main sections; the first section introduces stories from Robinson's life, basic principles related to the hidden order, ideas about health and love and death, and chapters on manifesting with creative power and experiencing a shared consciousness. The second section contains chapters with master practices for dealing with ego and beliefs, quieting the mind, understanding dreams, and setting intention. What I love best about A HIDDEN ORDER are the stories that Robinson shares from her fascinating life. I also love the way she includes references to relevant studies and research throughout her book, and the way her book provides a such a wonderful way to discover the joys of seeing and understanding life's hidden order and grand designs!
