Play to Win-Win

Cynthia Sue LarsonCynthia Sue Larson playing double solitaire; a "win-win" positive sum game

      "The Law of Win/Win says,
      ''Let's not do it your way or my way;
      let's do it the best way"
      -- Greg Anderson
My favorite card game is something I call 'double solitaire.' It's a version of Klondike solitaire that is played with two players and two decks of cards. While the one-player version of Klondike is almost impossible to win, double solitaire is winnable just about every time... provided both players cooperate so all fourteen stacks are cleared, all Aces found, and all cards played in sequence by suit from Ace to King. When one player wins at double solitaire, both players win, since their fates are intertwined in this collaborative game.

Double solitaire directly challenges the widespread assumption that for one to do well in life, others must necessarily suffer. Game theorists call systems of competition for limited resources zero-sum games, because the number of points or winnings is fixed so some players must lose in order for one player to win. Zero-sum games such as checkers, chess, or poker and 'survivor' style television programs popularize the notion that there is only so much money, love, and success to go around. Once it's established that someone is winning big, people often assume that others (including themselves) must be missing out, in much the same way they'd figure they won't get much cake when they see someone walk by with a gigantic slice. Such scarcity beliefs are often at the root of peoples' doubts about their ability to succeed, and contribute to an underlying reluctance to genuinely celebrate the successes of others, since people tend to think to themselves "there goes my chance."

Fortunately for all of us, we live in a universe which appears to be expanding at an accelerating rate, growing increasingly larger by the moment. This very simple fact is worthy of consideration, since it implies ever-increasing opportunity. Galaxies are not collapsing in on themselves, but are stretching out. Intuitively, we can envision ourselves best fitting into this expanding universe by choosing to stretch our abilities and branch out. And as we are stretching, we can consider how one of the best ways to broaden ourselves is through cooperation with others.

In direct contrast to the zero-sum mindset, positive-sum games are based on the premise that players all gain or suffer together in a situation of expanding opportunity... like our expanding universe... so it's possible for everyone to win more often than not. When we play positive-sum games like double solitaire, we can discover how to improve our cooperative style. Games are a wonderful way to find answers to questions we don't otherwise ask ourselves, such as, "Are you able to ask for what you need when you need it?" and "Do you notice when you have something that others can make best use of, and do you offer it?" As scientists are discovering that even chimpanzees notice who collaborates better than others, you can be assured that your neighbors, family, friends and colleagues are noticing, too!

Wishing you all the best that love and life have to offer,

        "Cynthia and I have appeared on many of the same Talk Shows as regular guests. Through a Divine Appointment, through Spirit, I was able to get my own personal reading from Cynthia (you can too). She began our Reading with messages from Spirit (my Higher , mid and Lower Selves). I can validate the vast majority of the information that came through during that part of our time together. There was part of a message from my Lower Self that did not make sense initially. However, as we explored the message more intently and Cynthia 'Tuned in' to get additional insights, that message made sense as well. The Reading continued with Cynthia exploring my chakras and explaining what she saw and felt from those energy fields. When we had completed that, she asked if I had any questions for which I was seeking guidance. From there she gained valuable insights regarding my career, the sale of my computer store & my relationship & romantic future. I found Cynthia a caring, ethical, honest and gifted intuitive practitioner. After we shared time and the experience and I got a feel for her energy and intent, I count Cynthia as a personal friend. If you seek guidance in your own life or desire a talented psychic and life coach I would personally recommend Cynthia Sue Larson and believe that your time with her will be well spent and as enjoyable and informative as mine was." -- Scott Christiansen, "the Ethical Psychic"

(3) Intriguing Articles & Interviews


Chimpanzees Recognize When Collaboration Is Necessary And Choose The Best Collaborative Partner
Science Daily
2006, March 3
"This is the first study that lets chimps choose who they want to cooperate with. We found that chimps choose a partner based on their effectiveness. Clearly, chimps can remember who's a good and who's a bad collaborator. Bad collaborators suffer by not being chosen next time."

Understanding Reality Shifts
Isle of Light Interview MP3
2006, March 8
by Chyrene Pendleton
During this interview, Cynthia Sue Larson gives a brief history of auras from scientific sources. She shares tips on how we can all see our auras or energy fields right now. We also learn what the various colors mean when seen in the aura and the many ways we can use our auras to manifest what we want. "...The fourth thing is to focus on expecting what you most desire, seeing the cup as half full rather than half empty. Instead of expecting trouble like, "What next? What next?", really focus on a vision of what it is you really do desire, holding that as a very steady vision...The most successful people in the world are ones that can do this exceptionally well..." We learn how expansive and highly important auras are in our lives, much more than generally known. "Everything from remote viewing to astral projection -- all these things are intimately related with the energy field. So the aura starts off as looking like just a single topic of colors and the more I look at it, the more I see that it has to do with every single metaphysical topic and psychic phenomena that exists..." Cynthia teaches us some very important ways we can protect ourselves from psychic attacks and clear them from our aura and how we can keep our auras cleared of negativity everyday

Just Like Heaven

Reality Shifting Films
What do movies and TV shows like Just Like Heaven, Indigo, Tru Calling, The Matrix, Frequency, Wonderfalls, Dark City, Sliders, The Lathe of Heaven, Sliding Doors and Passion of Mind have in common? These films feature the reality shift phenomenon in their plots. I find it especially refreshing to see films that describe reality shifts close to the way I've experienced them myself, and I am grateful that reality shifts are being featured more often than ever in film!

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Somerset, UK

During the summer of 1996, my wife and I decided to have a family day out visiting South Wales, about 70 miles away by road. My youngest daughter, then aged 10, had her favourite soft toy with her as usual - a rather shabby looking black and white dog she called 'Puzzle'. We all noticed she had it with her (she took it everywhere) and her older sister ribbed her about it as usual.

We stopped at a pub in Wales for lunch and sat in the garden overlooking the Severn estuary, then went on to Chepstow and parked in the castle car park while we went around the castle. After an hour or so we returned to the car and set off for home. A few minutes later there was distressed wail of "WHERE'S PUZZLE!!" from the back of the car. So - back to the car park, searching under cars, earnest enquiries at the castle ticket office and nearby Tourist Information centre - nothing. Then back to the pub, more earnest enquiries, a search of the garden - nothing again. And so, back homeward with disconsolate (actually almost grief-stricken) daughter in back, and an atmosphere like glass all the way home, interrupted by occasional sobs.

On arriving back home, I went upstairs to change and there, in the middle of the floor of the main bedroom was 'Puzzle'. It had definitely been with us on the outgoing journey, but now here it was at home.

Although I realise that various mundane explanations of the apparent facts are possible, I was not able to accept these then or now. The whole episode had a rather strange 'feel' to it, especially afterwards, when the whole family knew that something genuinely odd had happened, but no-one wanted to question or analyse it for some reason. There have been some similar incidents since this one and I accept these pragmatically as they are nearly always beneficial, 'fixing' what has moments before seemed like major problems (although my socks still disappear in the wash with monotonous regularity - I now have a collection of about 15 singleton socks with no traceable partners!). Incidentally, my daughter has now outgrown all her other soft toys but still keeps this one under her pillow at her University 'digs'!

New York, New York

I am a professional writer so I am typing/writing for most of the day. I typically have the radio or a TV on as background as I write. Quite often I am typing the exact same phrase or word that is being spoken on the TV or radio -- so I hear the words I am typing simultaneous to their being spoken on TV.

Here's an example: If I am typing the sentence, "She told me she would come back in two weeks" just as I am typing the "two weeks", the radio/tv voice will say two weeks. It always makes me look up from the keyboard, and I think there it is again. It's not like the radio/tv is filling in a blank; I have always already committed to typing those words when I hear them.

Friends claim this happens to them as well, but their explanation is that we only use 5,000 different words or so on average so the chances are likely that the tv/radio would use the same words I am typing. But I think it's more than that. I'd say this happens to me about once a week. Sometimes it's even proper names -- names of cities, brand names, etc.

I am wondering if anyone else has an explanation -- not whether it's happening, but if there's a meaning to it. I think I'll start writing down when it happens -- and with which words/phrases. Maybe there's a message here for me.

New York, New York

I have an (unlit) white candle in a hurricane lamp (brass candleholder with a glass covering) on a windowsill and the candle was not standing straight up and was leaning over against its glass cover. I noticed it every day and would think to myself "You should go fix that," but it was always across the room and one of those stupid, little tasks that's easy to ignore. This morning when I walked into my living room, I noticed the candle was straight up as if someone had fixed it...and I live alone so that seems unlikely! Now if I can just train the reality shifters to vacuum and do laundry! It's funny to me how it's not scary -- I just sort of said "Thanks."

New York, New York

This reality shift happened a few years ago, but I always chuckle about it. It has an explanation -- I needed to mail a letter and it was supposed to go out that day and I didn't get to the mail box in time for the pick up, and then didn't get to the post office and it was past closing and I thought that I might as well take the letter to the post office so it could go out first thing the next day. The post office usually closes at 6:00 and I got there at 6:45 and it was open. I couldn't believe my eyes.

As it turned out, it was April 15 -- income tax day -- so the post office was open for an extra hour to gather people's tax returns. My take is that we are so powerful that when needed, we can even make the United States Post Office do what we want!

(5) Reality Shifters Q & A

Q: Hi, Cynthia,
I read your last newsletter and was wondering about how things disappear and reappear for people. I had never happened for me. As I read about it, I wondered if it would start happening because I opened to the possibility that it could. Well this morning it happened. I went to use the teaspoon that I had just used to make another coffee. It was gone. After looking around and using another teaspoon, the original reappeared an hour later on my counter, still wet, just as I had left it. Cynthia, I am concerned that now there is an influence in my space that wasn't there before I read about it on your site. It's contagious. What is your opinion?
-- Emily

A: Dear Emily,
Thank you so much for writing to me with this question! It's been my observation that things are disappearing and reappearing for most people, yet that when people do not have an acceptable name or concept for what is going on, they typically don't store the memories of these kinds of reality shifts, since they "couldn't have happened." As soon as people begin to acknowledge that reality might shift, then the sorts of disappearance/reappearance you noted with your teaspoon become not only more noticeable, but something that has a name, and therefore can be noted as a real event. These kinds of shifts in reality are indicators to your state of mind, in that when you feel relaxed and energized (as one does after meditation), you'll note much more enjoyable synchronicities occurring in your life... and if you ever feel agitated and ungrounded, you may note more things "going missing." When you know that you are the one whose attitude is the main controlling influence in the kinds of reality shifts you experience, you can relax, take more time for prayer and/or meditation, and enjoy! There are several excellent theories about why things disappear and reappear, which are listed in an article titled "Why Reality Shifts" at:
lots of love,
-- Cynthia

(6) Reality Shifters Award Winner

I am proud to announce this month's winner of the Reality Shifting Award, for recognition of demonstrating consistent excellence in web site content and design, while helping people shift their reality in a positive direction:

The Synchronized Universe
Review scientific evidence for the paranormal, and discover a new scientific theory that describes how it is possible for consciousness to affect the physical world as particles interact and are coupled across great distances, so their motions become synchronized at very small scales.

The Synchronized Universe

The Synchronized Universe
New Science of the Paranormal

by Claude Swanson, Ph.D.

Exciting New Scientific Theory to Explain the Paranormal

Physicist Dr. Claude Swanson has written a superb book on the subject of paranormal research, experiments and theories. Topics included in this masterful book include: prophecies, remote viewing, extra-sensory perception, psychokinesis, group consciousness, cell-to-cell consciousness, levitation, teleportation, out-of-body experiences, adepts, and near death experiences. Each subject is presented with remarkable clarity, a historical overview, relevant diagrams and insightful observations into what appears to be going on. Swanson's choice of material and experiments to be included in The Synchronized Universe is outstanding, as these studies represent some of the most fascinating and noteworthy highlights in the history of paranormal research. From the more well-known studies showing global consciousness of events prior to their occurrence, to lesser-known experiments in which one-day-old chicks demonstrate psychokinetic powers by influencing a randomized robot to hover in their vicinity, The Synchronized Universe provides in-depth yet easy-to-understand summaries. The Synchronized Universe maintains an impressive overall sense of purpose while covering a vast range of subject matter, and brings it all together in the riveting final chapter in which Swanson presents the Synchronized Universe Model (SUM), to describe how consciousness influences the physical world. This theory explains that all particles in the universe undergo tiny orbits around their central, average locations... and that each particle has a fundamental frequency, which is proportional to its mass. The synchronized universe model predicts that particles that are not in "synch" will be invisible and will not interact with visible particles, but will appear as "noise," while particles that are in synch can interact across distances of time and space. When people meditate, they gain the benefit of attaining a state of conscious coherence of frequency, which enables adepts such as yogis to demonstrate psychokinetic powers as all the cells in their body act together in unison to achieve a desired result. I give The Synchronized Universe my very highest recommendation! It is ideal for anyone seeking a logical, scientific theory to explain and predict paranormal phenomena.
