Create Your Best Life!
How Good Can it Get?

Access Your Power

Cynthia Sue LarsonCynthia Sue Larson in Puerto Vallarta

"Success is a journey, not a destination. The doing is often more important than the outcome."
-- Arthur Ashe

Have you ever felt like there is something you would love to try... but never quite get around to doing, because you are afraid you might not do very well at it? When we fixate our attention on end results, we ignore the fact that true happiness more often comes from the process than the end result. I got a reminder of this last week, when I accepted an invitation to participate in a karaoke competition.

The song I chose to sing for my karaoke debut was Celine Dion's "That's the Way It Is." I felt nervous as I stepped onto the stage, unable to see the audience past the bright stage lights, and surprised to hear the music start before I could remember how I was supposed to sing the opening notes of the song. As I did the best I could to keep up with the words that appeared on a monitor, I found I couldn't sing the song while looking out at the audience, since I was having trouble relying upon my memory of what the tune was supposed to sound like, and the song seemed to go on forever. By the end of the song, I felt embarrassed that my first attempt at karaoke had not been as good as I had hoped it would be, and I felt tempted to slink quietly away, rather than sit down and listen to the next singers.

A shift in reality occurred inside me when I sat back down in the audience, as my perspective moved away from an egocentric view to one of my high self... my full power. I realized that the most important thing about participating in this new karaoke experience was that I do my best, learn new things, and provide support to everyone else who was participating. I had indeed done my best, I had certainly learned new things, and I suddenly grasped the importance of sticking around and providing support to the next singers. By noting and acknowledging my own fears and insecurities without allowing them to become the main focus of my attention, I was able to more fully enjoy the new experience. There was great joy in feeling attuned to my fuller power... that wise part of me which is above being concerned with how foolish I might appear, and who is more interested in finding out how good life can be for all concerned than whether something I attempted is judged as "good" or not.

I noted during this epiphany that many of the same things that make for good karaoke also make for a successful journey in life, when we remember how to access our true power:
    * You connect best to your audience when you show your passion
    * Keep on going, even if you make mistakes
    * Show respect and support for those who do their best
The reward of paying more attention to the process than the result is that we can experience more of enjoying this present moment, right here, right now. And nothing feels better than knowing you are living this moment as fully, passionately, and compassionately as possible right now.

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

Will Biology Solve the Universe?
Wired News
by Aaron Rowe
8 March 2007
For years, scientists have tried to develop a universal theory of everything. Steven Hawking predicts that such a theory will be discovered in the next 20 years. A new theory asserts that biology, not physics, will be the key to unlocking the deepest mysteries of the universe, such as quantum mechanics.,72910-0.html?tw=rss.index

Scientists Claim First in Using Brain Scans to Predict Intentions
CBS News Sci Tech
by Maria Cheng, AP Medical Writer
5 March 2007
At a laboratory in Germany, volunteers slide into a donut-shaped MRI machine and perform simple tasks, such as deciding whether to add or subtract two numbers, or choosing which of two buttons to press. They have no inkling that scientists in the next room are trying to read their minds _ using a brain scan to figure out their intention before it is turned into action. In the past, experts had been able to detect decisions about making physical movements in advance. But researchers at Berlin's Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience claim they have now, for the first time, identified people's decisions about how they would later do a high-level mental activity _ in this case, adding versus subtracting.

The Secret

Reality Shifting Films
What do movies and TV shows like The Secret, The Jacket, What the Bleep Do We Know, 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

Car Key Returns
Jerusalem, Israel

I was attending a writing retreat quite a distance from where I live, when I discovered I couldn't find my car key. I searched high and low, feeling anxious because if I didn't find it quickly I would need a ride with someone from the retreat back to my city. I took a deep breath, decided it wasn't the end of the world, and left my car at the retreat so that I could get home with someone. I realized that I could get my spare car key from home and return the following day to collect my car, so that is what I did. I felt very calm, accepting the situation. The next day I returned to the retreat, and had another look for my car key, walking through the places I'd been the previous day. I asked a person who seemed to be someone who lived there at the a kibbutz, a communal living place, "Where would someone who found a key take it to?" He replied it would be either be posted on the notice-board outside the dining room, or in the secretary's office. He explained that sometimes people leave a note, and sometimes they leave the key itself. "Come," he said, "let's look first at the notice-board." And there, hanging on the board, was my car key! Seeing it there, I had the most incredible endorphin rush of gratitude at finding it there. It felt incredible that a little bitty car key could create such a feeling. This feeling continued as I drove my car home.

Creating Reality Shifts with Driving
Jerusalem, Israel

Drivers who tail-end me would always incite my wrath up until this day. I would find myself swearing at them (to myself, aloud in my car). This time I found myself saying out loud, in my car, "Bless you for driving safely, thank you for keeping your distance." I was aware that I was also feeling it in my body, especially in my heart chakra. And I noticed that the car which was too close behind me dropped back. And this has happened on other occasions now. And when I can't reach that feeling and feel that way towards other drivers, then I know that there is work to be done on myself. I still have this incredible feeling of gratitude, that there is a way to make a change in what's happening on our roads. Israel has a very high mortality and accident rate on the roads, because of aggression. So this is my reality shift story and I'm expecting many more in different areas.

Pedestrian Responds to Silent Gratitude
Jerusalem, Israel

I was driving up a one-way street and saw a woman walking in the road with her back to me. This usually drives me crazy, because I feel that people who do this are not taking responsibility for their own safety, leaving it up to the driver. This time I said and felt, "Thank you for taking care of yourself." Do you know what she did? She didn't carry on walking in the same direction and then go up on to the sidewalk; she actually stopped in her tracks, turned around so that she was facing me, and walked towards me until she reached the back of the car she'd been walking next to and then around on to the sidewalk. What blew my mind was that she walked back the way she'd already come and faced me. For me, this was such proof of divine intervention that I was overcome emotionally by the realization that God was listening to me.

(5) Reality Shifters Q & A

Spiritual Life Coach Cynthia

Q: Dearest Cynthia,
I found your profile and website while searching for books relating to nimbus, auras, light work, and energy. I'm a 30 year old woman who sometimes sees what looks like nimbuses from old religious paintings. I also see light shifts, orbs, and tiny vibrating particles of energy. I don't know what any of it means, but I do feel as though I'm meant to ask you about it. Now, I don't see colors in the nimbuses, but rather different amounts of light and levels of clarity. I've seen people range from being 'out of focus' with fuzzy, dull nimbuses to radiant, magnificent nimbuses. Most people seem to fall somewhere in between. The man who had the fullest and most magnificent nimbus is one who I am becoming closer to throughout time When I saw his nimbus, I felt as though his higher self was revealing it to my higher self. Does that make sense? Likewise, once I saw a huge funnel of light leading up to the heavens spout from the top of my (troubled) sister's head. This was in one of her rare moments of clarity. Are you familiar with these sorts of events? I really don't know who else to ask and I hate to trouble you for this kind of information, but my curiosity has become overwhelming. If I'm meant to do something with my abilities, I need to know. I don't want to waste abilities that I could use to understand or help other people!
All the best,
-- Danielle

A: Thanks so much for writing to me regarding how you've been seeing light shifts, orbs, and tiny vibrating particles of energy. Nimbuses as seen over peoples' heads generally indicate a certain brightness and vitality to their being, with the brightest, clearest, most radiant areas above the crowns of their heads frequently accompanying people who practice regular prayer or meditation. You can get a glimpse of someone's higher self through the brilliant clarity of their nimbus, gaining a feeling of love and total connection to them which feels much stronger and deeper than others. Viewing a funnel of light leading up to the heavens shows the connection a person is making to receiving divine inspiration; the greater the clarity of such a connection, the brighter such a funnel of light will appear. You may also note specific shapes and colors matching what is being contemplated, or see complete scenes, as if watching a movie playing before your eyes. You may find it useful to keep a notebook which includes sketches of what you've observed along with what else you noted at the time; this is the way field biologists study all natural phenomena, which auras and energy fields certainly are. As you continue documenting the energy fields you observe, you can gain an ever-increasing understanding of the world of subtle energies around us.
lots of love,
-- Cynthia

The Return of Sacred Architecture

The Return of Sacred Architecture
The Golden Ratio and the End of Modernism

by Herbert Bangs

Enlightening, Comprehensive Overview of Art & History of Sacred Geometry in Architecture

Herbert Bangs brings extraordinary insights into his scholarly yet impassioned exploration of sacred architecture, which is a relatively new and vitally important subject. Bangs presents illustrations and historical accounts of a wide variety of architectural structures, letting the stories of each example demonstrate the points he makes regarding archetypes of shelter (cave, clearing, garden, water, elements), archetypes of design (duality, hierarchy, materials), and resolution of form. Bangs enthusiastically praises those architectural masterpieces which prove themselves to be aesthetically pleasing and livable, and denounces designs which may have been lauded by others, yet actually are tolerable by few. There are reasons why some spaces can lead people to feel relaxed and refreshed... or confused and stressed... and Bangs brilliantly describes the architectural principles and qualities that create these results. THE RETURN OF SACRED ARCHITECTURE is a clarion call for adopting a more intuitive approach to design and a better appreciation for the sources of divine inspiration. I give this book my highest recommendation to everyone, since all of us are at some point involved in designing, buying, visiting, and living in architectural structures.
