How Good Can it Get?

Master Fears & Create a Positive Shift

"If we are not responsible for the thoughts that pass our doors, we are at least responsible for those we admit and entertain." - Charles B. Newcomb

Learning to master our fears and develop a good relationship with the unknown is essential to living life to the fullest. One of the greatest things I ever did for my self confidence was graduating from UC Berkeley's physics department. I discovered when I began classes at age eighteen at UC Berkeley that I was one of very few women students in the physics department, and typically the only female in any given class. I was painfully shy, and frequently got knots of nervous tension in my stomach from the combined stress of living away from home for the first time, taking classes on a faster-paced quarter system for the first time, and being keenly aware of being an extreme minority. In order to succeed in this environment, I had to face and conquer many fears.

Cynthia Sue Larson 1981Cynthia November 1981
My first report card at UC Berkeley hit me with a feeling very much like a physical blow when I saw instead of getting most all A's as I'd received all through high school, I was getting C's. I thought to myself that my first report card from UC Berkeley confirmed my worst fears. These fears had to do with my thinking that the only students who could make it through UC Berkeley's rigorous physics program were the ones I saw in the majority in LeConte Hall... young Asian males. I broke down in tears at the thought of failing in my physics program, and wondered how I could ever tell my parents what had happened. Failure in my eyes at that time was more to do with not getting As than it was the concept of being kicked out by the university. In the midst of my dark mood at that point, my roommate Kathryn bounced joyfully over to ask me, "Did you pass?" I wiped my tears away with my hands, stunned by her question. "Yes, I passed," I replied. Kathryn whooped for joy, and said, "Let's celebrate!"

I still had tight knots in my abdomen facing the rigors of getting a grip on the quarter system, living away from home, and being one a handful of women in my program. The greatest epiphany for me at that juncture in my life was the simple realization that my own thoughts and attitudes made the biggest difference in my success in life. Yes, I had passed my classes... and while my first reaction to seeing my report card was to grieve, wasn't it a whole lot healthier to celebrate the fact that I was not at risk for flunking out?

This turning point in my life taught me that by mastering my inner dialogue of thoughts and attitude, I can face anything. Not only can I overcome my fears, but I can improve my relationship with whatever or whoever I have been afraid of. Even though I was still painfully shy, I found ways to enjoy being the only girl in most of my UC Berkeley Physics classes. I found ways to see myself as succeeding at meeting my goals by tackling areas I had difficulty with in small steps... and I succeeded.

2012 Creating Your Own Shift
And speaking of fears, the year 2012 brings curiosity and a touch of fear to all our minds. Unlike the Y2K fear, 2012 has been foretold in prophecy for thousands of years. People wonder what it means, who will be affected, whether 2012 is the end, and what will happen to us. I found some fascinating answers to these questions in 2012: Creating Your Own Shift, a tremendously important book at a time when the world seems to have gone crazy! This book is a strikingly powerful epiphany and a practical handbook, all in one. If you wonder what's going to happen on December 21, 2012, this book is a must read! It will enable you to explore the deeper nature within and guide you to answers about the outer world. 2012: Creating Your Own Shift summarizes the best insights that thirty-seven of the world’s most authoritative sources have to offer, providing readers with a vast cross-section of titillating information and perspectives on the 2012 transition. One thing on which all the authors of this amazing work agree is that 2012 will mark an initiation into a completely new consciousness and a divinely ordained new beginning for our world.

Teleseminar -- Is Consciousness Energy?
6 April 2011 at 5 pm Pacific, 6 pm Mountain, 7 pm Central, 8 pm EST
This one hour teleseminar looks really interesting -- this is a live (free!) teleseminar happening April 6th with Dr. Dean Radin and Christian de Quincy. What is consciousness? It's an age-old question that still stretches the limits of science. Is consciousness a form of energy? Christian de Quincey has dedicated a career to exploring this puzzle — philosophy's "hardest problem," science's "final frontier," and spirituality's "deepest mystery." Using the Four Gifts of Knowing, he guides us into this perennial mystery. Join Dr. de Quincey to explore different theories of consciousness, how mind and body are related, and how consciousness can make things happen in the physical world.

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Disappearing and Reappearing Medicine
Anita Holmes

I’ve read the many accounts of “lost and found” items at the Reality Shifters website with great interest, the whole time thinking what an awesome—albeit surprising—ending to the writer’s dilemma.  Never did I think I would experience a reality shift.  Yesterday proved me wrong!

It’s only a small half inch by one inch spot on the first knuckle of the pointer finger on my right hand.  But when the psoriasis flares, it can be wretched.  I have a large tube of medicine for flare ups that I keep in the medicine cabinet at home.  But a week ago it flared so majorly that I packed the tube with me to the school where I teach.  I resorted to the “magic tube” repeatedly that first day.  And packed it in my purse to take home at the end of the school day.  I thought.

However.  When I got home, I could not find it in my school bag, or my small leather purse.  With the finger itching like mad, I checked the bathroom, my school bag, the car and purse—repeatedly.  I emptied out the little purse, but there NO WAY that big white tube of medicine was hiding anywhere in its tiny black interior.  Nevertheless, I even felt around with my fingers, to no avail.

At school the next day I ransacked my desk for the tube, itchy finger never letting me forget how much I still needed it!  Nada.  Over the course of the last few days I’ve continued searching everywhere I’ve already looked myriad times before, even enlisting the help of my teacher aides; again, no tube.

Yesterday I decided I would just have to bite the bullet and buy a new prescription.  As I packed up materials to leave my classroom for the day, I opened my little purse to drop keys in.  And there, on top of my to-do list for the evening, WAS THE MISSING TUBE OF MEDICINE! 

Note from Cynthia:I just love this story of your disappearing and reappearing tube of medicine! How fabulous to get it back in such a surprising manner, and how marvelous that it arrived before you bought another tube! I've sometimes noted that missing things come back to me soon after I accept the fact that I may never see those things again... almost as if this is an important part of the process ensuring our subsequent reunion.


Jewelry Shift
Sun City, Florida, USA

Three of us just arrived at a Florida flea market one morning, where I bounced into a woman at a crystal shop. This attractive older woman with blonde/white hair thought I was a youngster about four feet high, and we  both knew and accepted I was once her student, (in another life. Anyway, to make a long story short, I came back and bought some clear quartz crystals in silver to hang on a necklace, for Richard and I.

That night, I was going to use a gold chain with my crystal, but instead decided to ask my mom if I could borrow a silver chain. The reality shift occurred with my mother. Mom discovered she was missing garnet rose jewelry from inside a green case which was in her larger jewelry box. She looked all around and thought it was very strange that it was missing!

Yesterday, we were delightfully surprised to see Mom's garnet rose jewelry had returned!  Mom sat out on the lawn chair in the Florida room with me while I typed messages and sent out emails. She was very delighted to have the three pieces of gold jewelery back even though she had to very delicately untangle the gold chain from knots. While I looked at the beautifully crafted work in the jewelry, I could see why they were called the rose set garnets. And we joked saying how we recognised a reality shift.  And for those who can recall, years ago my mother had other jewelry shifts... including amethysts and diamonds.

It's a beautiful insight to receive awareness of reality shifts happening to you, and to notice it when it occurs to others! How good can it get?

Note from Cynthia: What a marvelous reality shift story! I just love the way you consistently remember to ask the question, "How good can it get?" as that is truly the best way to ensure you'll be on track for getting the answer! We learn the most from the questions we ask, and as you know, "How good can it get?" is my favorite question! Thank you so very much for sharing this inspirational story, along with such an upbeat and positive attitude!


(5) Reality Shifting Q and A / Mail Bag

I've always been able to have visions of future happenings, but i can't control when i get them.
They just come to me. i saw the bad train wreck in India a few years ago and the passenger liner that landed on top of another one at the Houston airport. I had a wreck one time and minutes before, I started seeing, hearing and actually smelling the dust from it and I would feel the impact. this was like a continuous tape every few seconds it would run over and over, had I recognized what was happening (a warning) I maybe could have changed my route and avoided the accident.

This is such an important subject...
Thanks so much for raising it! I recently had a conversation with a spiritual life coaching client regarding what to do when disturbing premonitions arrive unbidden and unexpectedly. Those of us sensitive enough to receive such intuitive information are in a unique position to realize that in such moments we are conscious of our participation in the process of collective consciousness reality selection. Our immediate emotional and energetic reaction to observing a particular possible reality counts as a kind of vote, and our additional response (in the form of prayer, sending love, and / or visualizing a different outcome) provides us with an opportunity to bring a more conscious level of participation to what is typically a more-or-less completely unconscious reality selection process occurring all the time. It's important to know that as we become increasingly aware of our ability to influence non-local events and reality selection for collective consciousness, we will have times of regret... much as toddlers learning to walk fall down a few times in the process of learning to walk. Keeping focused on the desired outcome can be helpful, which is to realize that humans are now learning to consciously direct the process of global reality selection, and there is a learning curve involved. This is a wonderful time to see time we "fall short" and feel sad by outcomes to also take note of our progress. Intuitive humans are capable now of being concerned with the collective energetic consciousness of our home planet, Earth, as well as with the well-being of species and beings other than ourselves. This is a truly thrilling and exciting time to be alive and awakening to the realization that we are much more than the mortal, finite bodies we temporarily inhabit.
Wishing you all the best life and love have to offer,

Exploration of the Time-Lost Continuum and Travel

by Anita Holmes
Amazing True Stories of Time Slips, Warps & Displacements

Author Anita Holmes shares a wealth of stories about a phenomenon she affectionately calls "Twidders," giving a friendly name to an often unsettling and disturbing phenomenon of time shifts, slips, and warps. Holmes brings together groups of stories that share a similar theme, such as walking back (or less commonly, forward) in time, or seeing people arrive at a destination before they arrive (again). Some stories present more questions than they answer, with one person not able to retrace her footsteps in the snow back to her car, because her car had been inexplicably relocated to the place she wished she could have parked... but hadn't. Others have seen a place where trees in the forest alongside the road sometimes disappear completely in the matter of seconds... to be seen back again a week later bigger than ever... then months later, gone again.  My appreciation for these stories stems from having collected thousands of similar stories over the past decade, as well as personally experiencing a variety of shifts in space and time. For readers such as myself who've personally witnessed such phenomena, "Twidders" provides validation and an enthralling overview of the amazing variety of extraordinary experiences people can... and have... experienced. There is great value in knowing that it's possible for people to do extraordinary things, such as to travel great distances in very little time, travel in time, and sometimes notice loops in time, seeing events repeat. In addition to stories about time shifts, "Twidders" includes a great many stories about doppelgangers, bilocation, vanishing people, and alternate realities.  Some of my personal favorite stories in "Twidders" involve brushes with dinosaurs on land in the air, leaving witnesses wondering how such creatures could possibly be here on Earth in these modern times. I also find the story of a Spanish soldier's overnight teleportation in 1593 from the Philippines to Mexico particularly captivating.  I highly recommend "Twidders" to everyone intrigued by metaphysics, strange phenomena, and the paranormal.

2012 Creating Your Own Shift

2012: Creating Your Own Shift
by Hunt Henion, Drunvalo Melchizedek, Steve Bhaerman (aka Swami Beyondananda), Delores Cannon, Mike Quinsey, Tracy Latz, Marion Ross, Martine Vallee, Adele Ryan McDowell, Cynthia Sue Larson, et al
Positively Envisioning 2012 and Beyond

This revelatory anthology brings together the collective wisdom of 37 authors focused on helping humanity prepare for transitions anticipated for the year 2012. As Hunt Henion describes in the introduction to this book, "One thing on which all the authors of this work agree is that 2012 will mark an initiation into a completely new consciousness and a divinely new beginning for our world."  Guiding us away from doom-and-gloom and toward imagining positive transitions are world-renowned visionaries including: Drunvalo Melchizedek, Steve Bhaerman (aka Swami Beyondananda), Delores Cannon, Mike Quinsey, Tracy Latz, Marion Ross, and Martine Vallee. Adele Ryan McDowell keeps us laughing as she reminds us that keeping a sense of humor is a must, and Dr. C. Normal Shealy inspires us with his vision of the future of health care. Many chapters include insights gleaned from channeled information by Anrita MelchizedekSuzanne Lie, Suzanne Ward, Mike Quinsey, and Rhonda Smith.  What I love most about 2012: Creating Your Own Shift is its proactive perspective regarding prophecies of what some refer to as "end times," that there a new beginning is unfolding as many things come to an end. 2012 is highly recommended for anyone seeking inspiration, clarity and balance in these tumultuous, complex times.
