How Good Can it Get?

Cynthia Sue LarsonCynthia Sue Larson
Remote Viewing 2012

"What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly."
-- Richard Bach, Illusions

As we approach the year 2012 and notice natural disasters around the world, many people wonder what will happen less than five short years from now. While some fear all manner of crises, it is reassuring to note that several indigenous peoples of Earth inform us that this time of transition has been long anticipated, and something that has occurred many times before. According to the Mayan long count calendar system which tracks events through 26,000 year cycles of time, there is special significance to the year 2012 being a time of transition from the "Earth era" to an "era of Ether" at the time of Winter Solstice, on December 21, 2012. Within the cycles spanning 5,125 years, there are cycles known as the '13 Baktun Count' which last 394 years, or 144,000 days. We are currently traveling through the final 13th baktun cycle -- which began in 1618 and will run through 2012, and which is known as both 'the triumph of materialism' and'the transformation of matter.' The Maya predicted this time would be a time of great forgetting, in which we lose our sense of Oneness with nature and the Earth. In the 1600s, mechanical clocks were invented which continue to this day, and which give people a sense that time exists outside of us, rather than as part of us. The end of this materialistic time and the movement into the time of Ether is a profound change that also corresponds to a unique celestial event. On the winter solstice of 2012, the noonday Sun exactly conjuncts the crossing point of the sun's ecliptic with the galactic plane, while also closely conjuncting the exact the center of the galaxy.

Cynthia Sue Larson on California coast
This past month I conducted a workshop in which participants and I remote viewed 2012, to see for ourselves what the future holds in store. In this remote viewing circle, most all participants clearly sensed a feeling of tremendous harmony, peacefulness and joy... and yet some also sensed that just past this peaceful calm lay some degree of chaos, stress and strife. This energetic view of 2012 is one which feels like a smooth continuation of life as we know it today, with an additional emphasis on heightened energetic awareness. Most remote viewers had a sense of being in peaceful contemplation by themselves on December 21st 2012, and some noted they could clearly look out at a large, calm body of water. I saw myself by the Pacific Ocean along the California coast, and sensed that even as I was basking in radiant vibrations of unconditional love, there were people on Earth who were primarily focused more on material matters... such as wind storms. The feelings could be perceived as surreal when remote viewing. Kind of like being in some online fantasy games where everything feels surreal and awe inspiring.

According to Hopi legend, the world has already ended three times before, and people have survived fire, an ice age resulting from magnetic pole reversals, and flooding. The signs of the coming Fifth World are now appearing as prophesied by Hopi, as life forms from previous worlds spring up from the ground, the stars, and our hearts. The Hopi Life Plan petroglyphs remind people to be not be misled off course into attempting to be better than others, but instead to remain guided truly by Spirit. In previous end times, those who made it through the transition with the most ease were those whose kopavi, the 'door on top of their heads,' stayed open to receive inspiration, and whose hearts were open to caring for others. An attitude of open-mindedness and open heartedness is clearly optimal for facing times of great upheaval and change, yet in stressful times, people who have not practiced the art of keeping open-minded and open-hearted can find it challenging to maintain.

This past month has provided us with opportunities to assist people in the world who have suffered through earthquakes and wind storms. While it is clear that many crises we are facing now require our attention and assistance, it is equally clear on an intuitive level that when we step back far enough, we can see that everything on Earth is moving forward beautifully. It is up to us to remain open to inspiration... and open to love. As singer/songwriter Michael Stipe from the musical group REM puts it, "It's the end of the world as we know it, And I feel fine."

My life has changed dramatically since I have started working with her; I have had many physical challenges. The love that I feel from Cynthia is transforming in and of itself. I had lost my dog the other evening, and I called Cynthia to check things out with me, she walked me through amazing techniques and I am happy to say that my dog came back home the next day. Cynthia empowers me and teaches me what she knows, so that I will not be dependent on her.

Reality Shifting Films
What do movies and TV shows like 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

Breathing While Swimming Underwater
Chris Cade

My reality shift story is a little bit different than most. I have memories as young as two years old, and that includes dreams I remember and could easily distinguish from reality. Well, when I was around three or four years old, I learned how to swim. Part of what made swimming so easy for me, and so enjoyable, was that I could breathe underwater. This seemed normal to me until I heard that somebody else couldn't do it, so I told my mom "I can breathe underwater."

"No you can't. You were just dreaming," she said to me.

The next time I went swimming, I took my usual underwater breath and was surprised by the rush of water into my lungs. Fortunately, it wasn't damaging and I just coughed a bit. The real damage was to my spirit. I guess you could say that ever since that day my reality shifted back to "reality," I've been trying to re-learn how to breathe underwater again.

Note from Cynthia: Wow, Chris, I love your story! Reading this reminds me of when I was young, and noticed that rain would start and stop when I thought or said "rain start" or "rain stop." It worked perfectly every time... that is, until I went to demonstrate this to my mom, at which point it stopped working. I sometimes wonder just how many amazing things we could do if nobody ever told us we couldn't. Considering the phenomenal power of the placebo effect, it's clear to me that we can easily do much, much more than most people consider possible. I have a hunch that your story will help remind people of some of the marvelous things they used to be able to do... before someone told them they couldn't.

(5) Reality Shifting Q and A / Mail Bag

Aura Advantage

Hi Cynthia!
I was wondering if you would explain to me how your two 'Aura Advantage' books differ. I want to buy this and your meditation cd, but then I saw you had a different edition with a different description. Thank you so much - just seeing your picture always lifts my spirit!
Love, Stephanie

Hi, Stephanie!
The first edition of the book is the one with the white cover, and it is the original version published by Adams Media. The second edition of the book has a more colorful cover design, as well as color illustrations inside of what energy fields look like when doing various meditations, as well as one particularly illustrative example of what not to do (holding hatred inside). There are a few minor updates in the text in the newer edition, so the illustrations in the newer edition is the biggest difference in the two books.
lots of love,

My name is Matthew Mitchell. I always knew there was something special about me and reading your site made me more in tune about it. I was wondering how you practice reality shifting. If I can do it unconsciously why can't I do it at will? Let me know.
-big fan!

Dear Matt,
Thanks so much for writing with such a good question. When you ask "If I can do it unconsciously, why can't I do it at will," I take it you are wondering why the desired results don't seem to be instantaneous. This is an interesting question, as in some cases, reality shifts really do happen instantaneously (many people are quite good at getting parking spots exactly when and where they need them, for example, even in the most crowded places). We might then wonder why it can seem so easy to find the perfect parking spot, yet so seemingly difficult to have perfect health, finances, love life, and so forth. Generally speaking, we tend to get what we believe ourselves capable of getting. When people are given placebos, they often find themselves feeling much better, simply because they are able to believe that they've got reason to feel better now. Alternative health practitioners can also help people get great healing results, when their clients believe it's possible for something like acupuncture, Qi Gong, Reiki, or other healing modalities to help make a positive difference for them. The short answer to the question of why some reality shifts don't seem to happen very quickly can then be seen largely as a result of peoples' lack of belief that things have changed sufficiently in any way for remarkable changes in fortune to occur. The solution to getting more instantaneous results is then a matter of giving yourself training in opening your mind to allowing for the possibility of seeing realty shifts in their many forms and guises. Reading the accounts of reality shift stories reported on the realityshifters web site is a great start:

Meditating is another wonderful thing you can do to help clear your mind of focusing unduly on undesirable outcomes, doubts, and worries. Taking classes in Qi Gong or Reiki or another form of energy work can be very beneficial, too. Pay attention to the times when you notice reality shifting more easily, and ask yourself questions about what state of mind you were in at the time, how open or closed minded you were at that time to reality shifting, and how well you can imagine the realities you'd like to shift into. Just as you can gain skill as a musician by practicing playing your musical instrument, you can gain skill with reality shifting by learning how to achieve an optimal state of focusing on desired outcomes while being simultaneously relaxed, energized, and in a neutral yet positively balanced state of mind.
lots of love,

Parallel Universes of Self

Parallel Universes of Self
by Frederick E Dodson
Align Yourself with the Parallel Universe Where You Are & Have What You Most Desire

From Frederick Dodson's opening premise that the "Many Worlds Theory" in physics which hypothesizes that there exist an infinite number of parallel universes in and around us all the time, PARALLEL UNIVERSES OF SELF sets forth the idea that not only do those universes exist, but we can enter into them at will in ways that have the power to positively transform our lives. Dodson explains that the key to stepping into the parallel world we truly most desire is to first attain mastery of our thoughts and feelings, so that what we are thinking about and most emotionally involved with is indeed what we most desire for ourselves. Dodson provides numerous exercises and personal accounts of reality surfing, as he helps readers discover the way to help ourselves believe that what we desire is already true... by grounding our desires and new beliefs in the new reality. I especially love reading Dodson's stories from his personal life in which he healed broken bones by believing that nothing bad had happened, encountered simultaneous conflicting realities, traveled back in time to relive an entire day, and experienced many other types of reality shifts. I am particularly fond of Dodson's delightfully clear explanation of getting to a neutral mental / emotional place regarding the labels we typically use when viewing the world. Dodson's exercise of removing our perceptual filters enables us a kind of giddy freedom from habitual negativity, which in turn enables us to bask in the exhilarating experience of being in a state of consciousness that allows us tremendous flexibility in reality creation. Anyone interested in reality shifts will particularly love and adore PARALLEL UNIVERSES OF SELF, as it is chock-full of reality shift stories. For those of us who encounter reality shifts rather frequently, this book is like a refreshing breath of fresh air, documenting many delightful details of how Dodson uses his "PURE" technique for reality surfing. Those who are curious about how it feels to experience parallel universes in real life, yet are not yet aware of having had such encounters will find this book fascinating and paradigm-shifting. I give PARALLEL UNIVERSES OF SELF my highest recommendation!
