See A Bigger Picture

    You can find many big-picture thinkers who aren't leaders, but you will find few leaders who are not big-picture thinkers.
    -- John C. Maxwell
Sometimes reality shifts can seem like small annoyances, leaving us to wonder why these things are happening to us. We lose various socks in the dryer, discover that our car keys aren't where we know we left them, and wonder why things seem to keep disappearing, occasionally to reappear later as if they'd never been gone at all.

I've often noticed when things go missing around me that there is a reason for these things to inexplicably disappear that becomes clear later on... when I get a better view of the big picture. When I went on a vacation trip to Kauai this Spring, one of the things I most wanted to bring along with me was a book I'd been intending to read for some time from my stack of "books to read." When I tried to find this book in my organized stack of books, I was startled to discover it was not there. Thinking perhaps I'd placed it somewhere else, I checked all other book cases very systematically... with no luck.

When the day came for me to leave, I still couldn't find the book I'd planned to take, so I selected a different book written about a woman's personal experiences escaping from the Czech republic a few years after World War II. I greatly enjoyed reading this book aloud to my family, and when I returned home, I wrote a letter of appreciation to the author. Then I went to see what's next to read from my "books to read" stack. I was amazed to discover that the book that had gone missing was exactly where it should have been... in precisely the place I'd checked so thoroughly before where I know it hadn't been!

The question I asked myself after experiencing this reality shift was, "What difference did it make that I couldn't find that book?" The answer that came to mind is very interesting. I reflected that I had ended up bringing along a completely different book... a woman's personal account of her escape from the Czech Republic. I read large portions of this book aloud to my family, who greatly enjoyed it. When I came back home, I wrote a letter to the author about how much I enjoyed her book... and all these things have now changed several peoples' lives. My daily intention that guides my life is to ask the question, "How good can it get?" for myself and everyone else. I know that this intention guides my life in ways I sometimes find surprising and mysterious... and in the case of my missing book, in ways that continue to unfold and surprise.

Next time you notice something has gone missing... ask the question, "What difference does this make in my life?" You may find that your life is now rather different than it would otherwise have been.

This month, realityshifters discussion list members took a poll about our favorite ways to shift reality at:

    What are your favorite ways to shift reality?


    Reality Shift Technique % Preferred
    Daydream to imagine desired reality 16.67
    Pray for divine assistance 13.89
    Know that I'm experiencing what I desire 12.50
    Say out loud "Please help me" 11.11
    Make a casual wish and let it go 8.33
    Feel a bridge of love to preferred reality 4.17
    Visualize white light around me 4.17
    Astral travel 4.17
    Lucid dream the desired result 4.17
    View and change energies 4.17
    Work with breath and chakras to focus Qi 2.78
    Ask, "How good can it get?!" feeling grateful 2.78
    Do ritual/ceremony 2.78
    Communicate with self in past 2.78
    Use energy symbols (like Reiki) for manifestation 1.39
    Feel tremendous angst & desire 1.39
    Ask Future Self for guidance 1.39
    Ask for ancestral support/energies 1.39

I have tried all of these methods and a few others as well, and I find it quite interesting to see which methods are currently the most popular with the realityshifters discussion list. I was glad to see people utilizing so many different methods for experiencing the way our thoughts and feelings change the physical world, and I smiled to see daydreaming come in as the number one most popular reality shifting technique. Now we can all feel better when our minds drift away for a while, knowing this relaxed state of mind is actually quite productive... it's the number one preferred way for realityshifters to change our world for the better!

lots of love,

Reality Shifting Films
What do movies like The Matrix, Frequency, Dark City, 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 the movies!

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Owings Mills, Maryland

I was working on a printed circuit board in my office at home. I had made a mistake in designing it, so I needed to bend the leads of some surface-mount transistors to make them fit. Since they were small (SOT-23), one of them popped off the bench and went flying into the air onto the floor. A few minutes later, I sent another one air-mail onto the floor. At that point, I stopped and spent a great deal of time looking for them. Now, granted, my floor isn't the neatest, but I really searched and never found either of them.

A couple of days later, I bent down to work with the laptop sitting on the floor under the workbench so I could do some testing. Next to it, in the center of a sheet of paper (actually the outside of a large brown clasp envelope), were the two transistors lined up together all by themselves like someone had found them and put them there for me to find. I also seem to remember that the envelope was under something else when I dropped the transistors.

No one else in my family even knew that I dropped the things, and would not have been working around my bench anyway.

Bloomfield, New Mexico

I have been having reality shifts all my life, but only recently had a name for this phenomenon. The name "reality shifts" hits the nail on the! My roommate and I have been having quite a few reality shifts lately, from little things such as a CD I made for her vanishing (which she has not found even yet) to even something as big as her Great Pyrenees dog disappearing without a trace! That was quite an amazing story in itself.

We have a fenced in area for our dog. One day, my roommate looked out the window to check on her Great Pyrenees, and noticed that she wasn't there. She panicked of course. We walked around the house outside looking for her dog. We had both walked opposite ways so we know that she could not have snuck by us. But when we got to her fenced area, there she was! This was just one of the many shifts that have been happening.

Hemet, California

I went to the market the other day to buy all of the ingredients to try my hand at making "kicked up" spaghetti sauce. Well, I got home to find I hadn't bought stewed tomatoes. I know I didn't buy any stewed tomatoes, because I was lazy about putting all of the groceries away and I left everything out.

One evening a couple of days later, after the groceries had all been put away, I decided to take a peek at the cupboard. Wouldn't you know it, behind the tomato paste, I found a can of stewed tomatoes! hehe I love this kind of shift. The only other time I had it was when a chocolate cake fell out of another cupboard. I wish we could buy food like this all the time! ;-)

This shift happened without me even doing anything special, except harping on the thought all day that I needed stewed tomatoes. I didn't feel particularly great that day. I guess this is a case of what I was concentrating coming true on that particular day. At any case, the stewed tomatoes was a nice gift from the universe. I like to think of it as a gift from my grandmother (who passed March of last year).

Long Beach, Mississippi

I recently noticed a reality shift that was a little thing, but it got my attention.

Every morning before I leave, I get my coffee money for two cups of coffee in the morning. I have to pay 30 cents plus tax per cup which is 32 cents. I usually try to have the exact amount.

Yesterday, I was looking for two quarters, two nickels and four pennies. I usually look on the bathroom counter first, and if I can't find it there, I go to a change cup that we have. I looked and found two quarters and four pennies, but there was only one nickel. I remember distinctly looking everywhere on the bathroom counter for another nickel which was not there. So, I just went to the change cup and got my nickel.

Then, off I went to do a few more things (probably here reading email!) and right before I was going to leave, I was at the bathroom counter again, and there, plain as day, was a nickel! I just smiled to myself and thought, "Cool! A reality shift!"

I know it is not a big thing, but I got a kick out of it because I am convinced that nickel was not there minutes earlier. Anyway, just thought this was the place to tell that story! LOL

(5) Reality Shifters Q & A

Q: Hello Cynthia,
Can you please help me figure out why most recently I keep getting drawn to green items? Last weekend I purchased five plants. Then today I went out and bought a green blouse, green lamp, green candle holder and almost bought a green quilt, but didn't. I also decided to paint my bedroom a particular shade of green and my bathroom a different shade of green. How can this be explained? I would appreciate any feedback you could send my way.
-- Gisele

A: Dear Gisele,
Thanks so much for writing to me with this question! The last chapter in my book "Aura Advantage" is all about color therapy, and it helps explain how to bring certain colors into your life in order to help bring specific qualities of energy into your life. Studies have documented the powerful effects that colors have on people so clearly that several nations have made changes to better utilize the power of color. You can bring the color energies you most need into your life through their interior decor, lighting, clothing, gemstones, and even through food and colored lenses. The color green is wonderful for welcoming healing and balance into your life, as it is a color that helps establish a sense of well-being, love and abundance. Slightly different shades of green bring slightly different qualities of those energies you most need right now.
Wishing you all the best,
-- Cynthia

The Gift
ESP, The Extraordinary Experiences of Ordinary People

by Sally Rhine Feather & Michael Schmicker

An Exhilarating Overview of Decades of ESP Research

THE GIFT is an outstanding compendium of decades of essential research into ESP that is destined to be a classic reference book for years to come. Author Dr. Sally Rhine Feather shares the findings of the Duke Parapsychology Laboratory and the Rhine Research Center since the early 1930s in a friendly manner that invites readers to take a look at some of the startling intuitive insights of hundreds of ordinary individuals. THE GIFT devotes an entire chapter to sharing stories of ESP between mothers and their children, another to the ESP of children, another to ESP in romance, another for messages from the dead, and several to ESP related to premonitions of various disasters. THE GIFT is filled with fascinating findings, such as the conclusion that we tend to have ESP experiences most often with people who share close personal emotional ties -- such as parents, children, siblings, spouses and friends. 57% of people who shared stories of such experiences noted that they received intuitive insights such as precognitive flashes of something about to happen in the form of dreams, while 30% noted sudden intuitive impressions while they were awake, and 13% experienced visions so real that they seemed to actually be happening. I was intrigued to learn that 30% of all psychic messages from loved ones involve death, 40% involve news of accidents... so that a full 70% of ESP messages about others are tuned in to potential negative disruptions in the lives of those we care about. The authors assert, "When any two members of a family are emotionally close, the death of one can generate psychic shock wave capable of immediately reaching the other." Potentially lethal situations also seem capable of reaching loved ones very quickly. It's interesting to note that the majority of ESP messages people receive about themselves involve precognitive warnings of accidents and injuries as well. THE GIFT raises the excellent question, "Is fate inevitable?" There are those who argue that if you can make a successful intervention and change the future, then by definition, no precognition took place. Others assert that we see possible and probable futures, so it is possible to see one future and actually experience something else. There is no scientific test yet developed to determine whether a future envisioned and then averted is one that might have ever come to be real... yet people receiving strong impressions of danger appear to be able to change the future. People made changes to avert disaster in 162 of 433 cases reported to the Rhine Research Center over the past sixty years. Since ESP comes to us in the same form and manner as our ordinary mental processes, it can be difficult to distinguish between meaningful messages and "noise." Nevertheless, of the 162 individuals who sensed potential danger, nearly two thirds of them succeeded by recognizing the significance of their psychic impressions and acting quickly and effectively, even when some aspects of their vision were not entirely accurate and people around them did not fully cooperate. THE GIFT is a book that will give you an exhilarating sense of how it feels to receive ESP impressions, and a sense of the breadth and depth of the ESP experience.

Music for Rest & Relaxation

From the first gentle melodies on the instrumental album "Music for Rest & Renewal" to the final note, I felt transported to some of the most beautiful places on earth. Guitarist Bradley Powell, "the Candlelight Guitarist" infuses each of his original compositions with feelings of warmth and gentle assurance that all is well in the world. Flutes and nature sounds accompany acoustic guitar with such perfect ease and grace that I feel my heart rate and breathing noticeably becalmed.
