How Good Can it Get?
Cynthia Sue LarsonCynthia Sue Larson
History, Mystery, Gift

"The past is a gift,
the future is history, and
this moment is a mystery."

I recently heard the saying, "The past is history, the future is a mystery, and today is a gift, which is why it is called the present." I noticed that while this seems true from a very ordinary perspective of reality, those of us who experience reality shifts might observe something rather different.

First, we can notice how the past is a GIFT. No matter what may have transpired so far in our lives, we will feel most confident and enthusiastic by recognizing the many blessings we have received from the entirety of our past. When we find ways we have grown and benefited from all the challenges and difficulties in our lives as well as the happy-go-lucky experiences, we can see that all experiences offer unique benefits when viewed from a grateful point of view. The resulting improvement in our own personal energy, or Qi, is simply phenomenal as we contemplate our good fortune. Rather than blaming people, situations, or events for what has seemed to have gone wrong, we can be grateful we have survived and learned something valuable along the way.

Secondly, we can see how today is a MYSTERY. This moment, right here, right now, is a moment of all-inclusive, infinite possibilites. With so many options to choose from, we can more easily switch gears from old habitual ways of thinking and acting to something fresh and new. Regardless of whatever we think we may know, we can best effect change in the world with an attitude of beginner's mind, in which anything is possible. Many of the world's greatest inventions have benefited from their inventors being completely unaware that some people considered their creations to be impossible. A state of open-mindedness provides us with the ability to switch gears and realities to those which are much more congruous with our true interests and desires... as we develop entirely new mental models and ways of thinking.

Third, we can note that our future can be viewed as HISTORY. We often observe we get the best manifestation results when we do what star athletes do time and time again, by holding a clear and consistent vision (memory) of success in our endeavors. It also helps to note that we can reverse negative self talk wherever necessary, in order to ensure better visualization of what we truly desire. This visualization technique is so very popular for the very simple reason that it works. This method can be viewed as making a solid intentional connection to a desired "future memory" outcome that is particularly robust and stable precisely because our mind views this vision as something predestined... of something we are completely confident will happen next.

For those who find these concepts fairly easy to comprehend, there is something "extra for experts," and that is the matter of taking the above concepts and utilizing them for both forward and backward causation. Bi-causality works using the basic principle of this present moment always being the MYSTERY, and the past and future switching between being the GIFT and HISTORY. Whichever direction in time we may be working, we first start with the gratitude and thankfulness for the GIFT, and whichever direction in time we are shifting, we remember the HISTORY we are targeting. In the case of forward causation, the future is what we hold in our mind's eye as a memory, as being very much a "done deal," such as a parking spot we remember getting in advance of our actually finding it. This "memory" from the future is powered by our feeling at joyful, grateful peace with all of the past. In the case of reverse causation, the past we are shifting is what we remember as we recreate history with the energetic support of a grateful future. The key to success in all of this is our ability to clear out all doubts and fears, replacing those emotions with love, joy, purposefulness, enthusiasm and confidence.

Putting this new concept together, we have a veritable recipe for high-powered manifestation success. Envision your favorite outcome as a fait acompli... a done deal... a memory. Keep an open mind to all possibility that exists right here, right now. Be grateful for everyone and everything from your past. The world is now your oyster!

Wishing you may discover just how good your life can be and has been,

Beta-Blockers Erase Emotion of Fearful Memories
Science News
13 March 2009
By Solmaz Barazesh

The first experimental study in humans connecting beta-blockers and memory suggests these drugs, usually taken to treat heart conditions, can also wipe away the emotions associated with frightening memories. The power of such memories could be dampened when a person thinks about the traumatic events after taking the drugs, scientists say. Beta-blockers wouldn't stop reconsolidation of only frightening memories, the researchers say. "It's likely that any emotional memory, happy or sad, recalled after taking the drug would be dulled," Kindt speculates. But patients with fear-based anxiety disorders probably aren't thinking about the happy moments of their lives; they are obsessed with the traumatic moments, the scientists say.

How Do You Amputate A Phantom Limb?
Scientific American

By Robert Krulwich and Jad Abumrad

Many amputees say they can still feel the presence of a missing limb, and often what they feel is intense pain. But how does a doctor treat pain in an arm or a leg that no longer exists? Oddly enough, one researcher used a cardboard box and a $2 mirror.

Spirit Time Light

Time Shifting
By Cynthia Sue Larson

One of the ways we can tell that reality is shifting is to notice that our experience of time is not linear and sequential as usual, but instead is speeding up, slowing down, or stopping. In some cases, cross-time communication is also possible. All through my life I've felt that time does not move mechanically, but seems instead to behave organically, as something alive and responsive to how I am feeling. There is great truth to the observation that eternity can be found when we are feeling our greatest sense of love. After many time shift experiences, I no longer assume that time behaves in linear fashion. I do not believe that time always moves at the same rate -- and I'm not the only one who feels this way.

Spirit Space

Reality Shifting Films
What do movies and TV shows like Spirit Space, You Can Heal Your Life, Next, Peaceful Warrior, Premonition, Deja Vu, 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

Reduced Service Charge with Retrocausality
Hollywood, California, USA

The following has happened quite a bit over the years and happened to me again this morning. It probably happens all over every day. You call a company with a question such as, "How much is your service?" They'll say $100. I'd rather have it for $50 so I say "OK, bye." I then call the same company again, and get a different rep. He says "$100, always has been." He reads from their rule book about why it's $100. OK. I go online, look at their information, and see that it's ambiguous. I wait a month or two and call again, get a third rep, and the same $100 answer. So after about eight months of this (in this case it's not a new service issue but one that I care more about) today I call, get a rep, and ask him. He says $50! How? Nothing has changed in their rule book according to him. It's just now the answer is the one I've been hoping for, and according to this rep it's always been the answer. He says he's sending me verifying papers.

The call and call thing tends to work. People do it until they hear what they want to hear, and then what they're hearing is not only what they wanted, it's right! It has become as real and valid as the stuff they hadn't wanted to hear used to be.

I've assumed different logical explanations for the disparity - untrained reps, honest mistakes, outright lying, luck, odds, etc. But this morning I wondered if somewhere in there reality shifting is going on. Then a couple hours later here comes Cynthia's February RealityShifters issue, (which arrived at 1:11 pm!) talking about retrocausality.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing this exciting reality shift story! One of the things I like most about this story is your dogged determination to keep phoning and checking the cost of services, until the answer finally matched what you had all along been feeling was the right price. The reality shifting confirmation is the fact that "it's always been this price," which is the standard reply following most any reality shift, when we move from one reality probability path into another. This reality shift has a feeling of retrocausality all over it, and I'm so happy to know about it!

Parenting with Retrocausality & Self Identity
Kingston, Ontario, Canada

One thing that I've been working on, and didn't even realize it until last night, was my son. My ex-husband was incredibly abusive to him, and I've been working on lessening the impact of the abuse by changing past memories. Normally, that consisted of thinking of how much love I have for my son, and really putting energy into remembering how great some past things were... like hockey... and not putting energy into remembering bad things. I also spend time seeing him as the sweet child he is, instead of dwelling on what we've been through in the past couple of years. Also, when he does something inappropriate, I'll say things like "That's not like you to do that, Jacob" This approach is working to the point that sometimes he'll stop himself and say "That's not like me.".Jacob has been through so much, and he's such an amazing kid. I will literally do anything to help him get through the challenging times and become a responsible adult. You'll love this about him, he has an awesome gift for seeing auras. I had a blast with him one night, as he was teaching the other kids how to see people's auras on TV, and he was way better at it then I am. It takes me a minute or so to connect and start seeing, but with him, it's instantaeous. Also, he can sum someone up in an instant, and so far, he has been bang on. I wish I had listened to him a few times; it would have saved me a lot of grief!

Note from Cynthia: What genius to take the concept of retrocausality in hand with your other bag of parenting skills... how brilliant is that! Provided your son always knows that essentially, his character is and always will be of his own choosing, you are doing him a great service to help him "own" those qualities and characteristics which will stand him in good stead in the long run... the ones he will be proud of for years to come... by letting him select the probable pasts in which he consistently has had excellent character. I can also see how with just a bit of extrapolation, most of us can improve our character should we wish to do so, simply by seeing ourselves as genuinely good people. Thank you so very much for sharing this story... this is truly inspirational! You are such a great mom, and Jacob is so lucky to have you! How marvelous that he can see auras, and sum people up so fast.

Starting Cars with Energy
Aynne McAvoy

Cynthia's reference to the car starting made me remember the times that I have done this. I first did this several years ago with a car that sometimes started hard, if at all. I actually kept a hammer under the front seat to hammer on something under the hood if it didn't start. (I don't remember what that something was now, LOL.) At any rate, I needed to get to work, so I just concentrated, very very hard, that this car would start. I know now that I was actually sending the car intense energy although I didn't understand that concept then. I have tried this out a few times since then, with different cars, over the years, including one that had a dead battery. I couldn't always do it on the first try, but the remembrance that I had done it in the past always gave me encouragement to keep trying, usually with success. I wouldn't give up my AAA membership, but it really has worked for me in the past. Cynthia's story is encouraging to use this same energy to attempt to alter the past and therefore, the present. I can remember that first time quite vividly and it puzzled me long afterwards what exactly had happened? I knew something had happened; that by willing the car to start (sending energy) the car actually started but it would be years before I had the comprehension that I now have.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing your remembrances of times in the past when you've had good success getting cars to work by sending them intense energy. The more people know that such things are possible, the happier many people will be, since not everyone thinks of sending energy in a time which feels like a bit of a crisis. Sharing these kinds of stories goes a long ways toward encouraging and inspiring people to give positive energy a chance next time they experience a problem.

Trip Back in Time
Bluff City, Tennessee

Back in 1980, I got a call from my uncle that my paternal twin had been severely injured in an automobile accident and was not expected to live. I came home and my mother, myself and his wife took turns staying with him. One day on my off watch, I went next door to my old junior high school and sat on the back steps thinking about the old days. The bell rang for the school to let out and I noticed that all the mothers picking up their kids were driving older period cars, I went on home and my mother was back, and asked me what I'd been doing. I told her of visiting my old school next door to the hospital. She said that was impossible, since the school had been torn down a few years ago. But I WAS there. One of these days I'm going to see if I can purposely shift time again, probably in that same neighborhood, as it's still the same as it was back then.

Note from Cynthia: This is a truly fascinating case of time shifting, and I am so glad you shared it with us. It is interesting that you were going through such an emotionally intense time, and perhaps even feeling a bit nostalgic at the time of this time shift. This reminds me of the time I witnessed a time travel reality shift... it was truly an experience I will never forget!


(5) Reality Shifting Q and A / Mail Bag

I don't know if you'll get this or be able to help, but I stumbled upon your site when I was searching the internet to help answer a question and thought you may be an outlet for such help. I saw much information about seperate realities in which I am already reading a book about. Recently I read in a book that while one is walking one should keep their fingers curled. Not much information followed about why this should be done but nonetheless I took that as beneficial advice I've began walking in such a mannon. Today however as I was walking my fingers on my right hand shook under to controll of my own. It was a strange sensation. What could this mean?

Dear Joseph,
Generally speaking, the advice to cross one's hands or fingers is intended as a means for keeping one's energy field to oneself, in order to minimize outside adverse influence. It is possible at times that when you are crossing strong energy fields you might at times feel the resistance from those energy fields as you walk by.
lots of love,

Attraction Distraction

The Attraction Distraction
Why the Law of Attraction Isn't Working for You... and How to Get Results -- Finally!

by Sonia M. Miller
Excellent Primer for Fine-Tuning Your Manifestation Skills

There is a whole lot to love about THE ATTRACTION DISTRACTION, starting with the way this book covers the basic metaphysical concepts of how we tend to attract what we are energetically attuned with, and continuing through every step of the manifestation process. Right from the start, author Sonia Miller covers the essential mind-set for working with the "Law of Attraction," and then covers in exquisite detail the typical problem areas people encounter, along with the best ways to overcome each of these common challenges. I love the way Miller introduces key concepts clearly enough for beginners who are unfamiliar with the "Law of Attraction" and with sufficient emphasis for even well-seasoned practioners to discover where they can make improvements for better results. Since the main point of THE ATTRACTION DISTRACTION is to assist readers in identifying how and where to fine-tune their manifestation abilities, this book succeeds brilliantly! I especially appreciate the way THE ATTRACTION DISTRACTION describes the difference between Ego and Purpose, so we can envision living a life that really matters and energizes, rather than pursuing goals based on our wants and insecurities instead of how we feel a need to share our unique gifts and best be of service. Miller's compassion and experience with life coaching is clearly evident in her writing, as she helps people stretch out of their familiar comfort zones into lives of increasingly greater joy and prosperity. If you get just one book on the subject of the Law of Attraction, this is the one -- you will be amazed at the often instantaneous positive results you can achieve when you trouble-shoot and then successfully follow the four step process of: Identifying what you desire, Pretending you already have it, Stepping out of your own way, and Welcoming it into your life!
