How Good Can it Get?

More than a Glitch in the Matrix

Neo: What are you trying to tell me?
That I can dodge bullets?
Morpheus: No, Neo. I'm trying to tell you
that when you're ready, you won't have to.
- from the movie, The Matrix

Do you remember the scene from the movie The Matrix in which the main character, Neo, notices a cat walk by in a hallway... and just a few moments later he sees an identical cat walk in identical manner? In the film, Neo comments to his friends, "Whoa, déjà vu," and his friend Trinity explains, "Déjà vu is usually a glitch in the Matrix." The implication here is that when an event is seen to repeat itself almost immediately, it's a bit like a glitch in a recording... except this glitch is a glitch in reality.

I share some real life examples of these types of reality shifts in my blog post, A Glitch in the Matrix, along with an explanation about why although technically it is true that déjà vu translates literally to mean, "already seen," most people don't typically experience such a short passage of time between the first and second sightings... yet some reality shifts do happen very much like that kind of time loop.

There is a wide variety of reality shifts, or mind-matter interactions, as my interview with Dr. Pamela Heath describes, such as metal-bending and table tipping... and I love the way Dr. Heath delineates fourteen constituents to mind-matter interaction. I’ve noticed when I experience psi phenomena such as psychokinetic effects, reality shifts and/or ESP that several of these factors are present, such as: openness to the experience, playfulness, trust in the process, focused awareness, ego detachment, suspension of intellect and a sense of energy.

take our survey
Are you curious about how many types of reality shift experiences youve had so far? You can find out while simultaneously making an important contribution to psi research by taking the How Do You Shift Reality? survey. Your responses will improve our understanding of the way people experience a variety of quantum type behaviors that occur on a macroscopic scale... and provide insights regarding how reality shifting experiences have changed over the past decade. Please participate and ask your friends to take the survey, too!

This is an excellent moment to acknowledge that what we focus our attention on, we tend to experience more of. When I wondered what types of reality shifts are possible to experience, I experienced an expanding breadth and depth of mind-matter interactions most everywhere I went... and this marvelous reality shift adventure continues to unfold, much to my continual amazement and delight.

One of my favorite ways to experience all the most enjoyable varieties of reality shifts is to keep asking, "How good it can get?" Let me know what happens when you focus on this question next time you notice the little--or not-so-little--glitches in life. Hopefully, just by asking this question, you'll be helping to raise the bar of best possible outcomes.
Love always,

Cynthia Sue Larson talks about a Glitch in the
A Glitch in the Matrix
Cynthia Sue Larson discusses the origination of the phrase "a glitch in the Matrix" from the movie "The Matrix" in which the characters Neo played by Keanu Reeves and Trinity played by Carrie-Anne Moss discussed what Neo called a "déjà vu" involving seeing a black cat walk past twice. Cynthia shares two similar experiences with what can more accurately be called a "Groundhog Day" effect, as described in "Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World." These types of reality shifts are sometimes known as "glitches in the Matrix," mind-matter interaction, and quantum jumps--and they are all examples of quantum behavior (such as quantum entanglement, superposition of states, quantum tunneling and quantum teleportation) on the macroscopic scale. You can read Cynthia's written blog post on this topic at:

Diet Pepsi Refilled with Ice Tea

Two breakthroughs to report.  I was trying a new meditation last night, two tracks, that really helped.  The second one, I had to start over twice and the reason became clear when, during a pivotal moment in the meditation, I was able to stop a cough from disrupting me.  I sensed easily that I made myself start over the track enough times to sync when the cough would have come with the moment within the meditation, through which I received the positive energy required to do so.  It felt so amazingly easy.   The other thing to report is for this morning when I was having breakfast in a restaurant.  I was saving money from the change I got from the waiter to buy some ice tea on the way home.  But then I decided to give him some it for a good tip which is something I've always enjoyed doing.  Then when I ordered my last refill of diet pepsi, I discovered that somehow he gave me ice tea instead, which affirmed how well the meditation helped me last night.  There are no coincidences and there are no accidents.  I'm starting to find in some ways more confidence in that.

Note from Cynthia: Thank you so much for sharing these breakthroughs with me! These "little things" are actually very meaningful, as we can see with such a seemingly small decision as giving the change as a tip to a waiter you'd previously thought of as "ice tea" money, to receive quite by surprise a lovely ice tea (that wasn't actually your refill drink)! Yes, the universe is listening, and the better we tune in, the more enjoyable these kinds of shifts in reality can be!


Helping Money Manifest for Others
Fort Worth, Texas, USA

My favorite money manifestation experience happened when I was part of someone else's money manifesting experience. I had the sudden urge to give $10 to a woman parked in the car next to me in a parking lot. My knees were shaking as I tapped on the very startled lady's car window. "Um, Excuse me," I said. "I'm supposed to give you $10 for gas money." The stunned woman said nothing. As I walked back to my car I was thinking that I must have looked like an idiot. Just as I was pulling out of the parking lot the lady chased me down. She asked why I gave her the money and told me that just that morning she had grudgingly given her son her last $10 so he could go to his first day of work after being in rehab for six months. When she thought to herself "Great, now how will I put gas in my car?" a small voice answered, "Don't worry--I will provide." So the moral of the story? Our good will often come in spite of ourselves. I think I was more blessed than she, because then I realized that I could trust my inner guidance.

Note from Cynthia: I just love, love, LOVE this experience you shared of helping manifest money for others because it so clearly shows how we are all interconnected at levels that are so much deeper and more subtle than we can ever fully comprehend. This experience of oneness is at the very heart of prosperity consciousness and health consciousness, and our ability to be so aligned with trusting intuition and the still, small voice within will guide all of us to help one another.


(5) Questions and Answers

Hi Cynthia,
I enjoyed how you simplified quantum jumping in your article. I have read about quantum jumping and find it a fascinating concept. I am a little confused in this part of your article and was hoping you would clarify it for me. “While to the universe, both of 'you' still exist, usually your awareness of who you are will coalesce on one reality, leaving the other forgotten and left behind.” If my awareness is in the “new reality,” then what awareness is handling the old reality? Also, let’s say I believe that I may have quantum jumped out of a bad rollover accident on a highway going about 75 miles per hour, I remember becoming very relaxed and calm during the rollover, just observing what happen without fear, noticing the car rolling and ending up with my two infant children in the car and myself car  unscathed. Insurance company states records show I was on the phone when accident occurred, I can attest I was most surely  not on the phone. It is all too mysterious for me. If I did quantum jump, how does that explain my children, did they quantum jump? If I view and want an alternate reality that will impact my family, but my spouse views a different one, how does that conflict with the quantum jumping? I would be most appreciative of any information or light that you can shed on these questions.
  Thank You,
  -- Rosalie

Dear Rosalie,
Thanks so much for asking questions about: (1) Who am "I" when jumping between realities? and (2) How do quantum jumps affect those around us? The key to quantum jumping is actually very closely tied to how one identifies with oneself. There is a moment, when feeling supremely energized in which it's possible to feel a sense of oneness with all that is. In that moment of oneness, you might feel a sublime, timeless energetic experience of accessing all possibilities... including who you felt you were prior to this sense of oneness... as well as who you can be after this sense of oneness. All the possibilities can feel separate from this expanded sense of self because they are all limited possibilities. The awareness handling all possible realities resides fully in this sense of unlimited, infinite oneness. The moment a particular reality is selected, the feeling of oneness is gone, to be replaced by consciousness of embodying one particular path in spacetime. Quantum jumping affects those around us in interesting ways; sometimes we may not notice much of a change at all in other people, while other times we're aware of enormous transformations. When you and your children choose the same new reality as the one you select, you make a quantum jump together with a shared sense of emotional, physical and mental alignment regarding the reality you jumped from and the reality you jumped into. When your spouse selects different realities from the one(s) you prefer, it's possible to find you and your spouse literally moving in different realities so you feel an increasing sense of distance and separation emotionally, physically, and mentally from one another. It's also possible for two people's realities to temporarily separate for a while, and then to weave back together again later on. You can trust your intuition to inform you how close or distant you feel to those around you, and become more sensitive to the ways you are moving together or apart from those around you. 
lots of love,

Days of Faith

Days of Faith: Poems on Healing (Volume 2)
by Jen Reich
Playful poems that lift the spirits and feed the soul

Days of Faith is a book I love to keep close at hand, so I can read a poem in a few minutes as just the right pick-me-up to lift my spirits and feed my soul. This slim volume of healing prose is like the best food--light on the palate so it doesn't weigh you down, yet deeply nourishing and satisfying on levels previously not felt or known. Each poem is introduced with a few words of introduction from the author, so readers glean a sense of what's behind each poem, even though these poems have a wonderful way of speaking for themselves. There is a marvelous cumulative effect of reading through the pages of Days of Faith, as I find myself smiling more and more broadly. Like happy days of childhood remembered with your best friend by your side, Days of Faith invites you to discover that it's never too late to enjoy life to the fullest. Highly recommended!

Mind-Matter Interaction

Mind-Matter Interaction: A Review of Historical Reports, Theory and Research
by Pamela Rae Heath
Splendid Summary of Psychokinetic Research

Written by a medical doctor, Mind Matter Interaction tackles a subject of psychokinesis with scientific rigor perfectly balanced with the human desire to understand our mysterious universe. Carefully organized into historical and scientific research sections, Mind Matter Interaction first takes readers on a historical and cross-cultural tour through religious and spiritual accounts of such things as: levitation, stigmata, teleportation, bilocation, poltergeists, inedia, luminosity, mediumship, fire-immunity, hemography, and materialization and transformation of matter. After reading fascinating real-life examples of such a wide variety of mind matter interaction, the second major section of this book covers research and theory. Containing one of the most thorough reviews of current scientific study into the field of psychokinetic mind-matter interaction, some of the areas covered include: metal-bending, anomalous photography, random number generators, and poltergeists. The third major section of the book covers experiential research and tips for achieving a conducive atmosphere through altered states of consciousness, dissociation from ego identity, suspension of intellect, playfulness, peak emotion, focused awareness, trust in the process, and openness to the experience. Designed to stimulate curiosity and motivation for further study, Mind Matter Interaction opens a series of doors to experiencing the world in new ways. I love the way this book contains just the right amount of information to whet the reader's appetite for learning more. Pamela Rae Heath has created a first-rate psychokinetic primer which should be required reading for every high school and college general studies program. Kudos to McFarland Pub dot com for publishing such a valuable work of historical and scientific significance. Highly recommended!

The Déjà vu Enigma: A Journey Through the
Anomalies of Mind, Memory and Time

The Déjà vu Enigma: A Journey Through the Anomalies of Mind, Memory and Time
by Marie D. Jones
Much More than Déjà vu

The Déjà vu Enigma delves into a number of fascinating metaphysical topics that weave together with a central, recurring theme of déjà vu--that eerie sensation of 'remembering' an experience or situation before it occurs. Wherever possible, authors Marie D. Jones and Larry Flaxman reference current scientific studies and research, providing additional insights into what might be going on behind the scenes in our mysterious world. In addition to déjà vu, some of the related areas covered include: out of body experiences (OBE), astral travel, prodigies and savants, fugues, blackouts, amnesia, schizophrenia, confabulation, ghosts, talking with the dead, and mass hysteria. While no specific cause of déjà vu is provided as generally agreed upon, many possible explanations are provided, such as the Many Worlds Interpretation (MWI) of quantum physics, malfunctions of the brain, ego defense mechanisms or forgotten dreams. This book is organized more in the form of a buffet table than a many course-meal, presenting ideas to readers in such a way that they can pick and choose from a rather wide variety of scientific expert opinions, experiential reports and theories. I particularly enjoyed the question and answer section featuring responses from Michael Schmicker, Pamela Heath, Stanley Krippner, Nick Redfern, Loyd Auerbach, Jay Alfred, Meghan Shannon, and Dale E. Graff to such questions as, "What role do you think belief plays in the manifestation of paranormal phenomenon?" Highly recommended!
