"What goes up must come down. But don't expect it to
come down where you can find it."
-- Murphy's Law applied to Newton's Law
Reality shifts feel chaotic when we're in a hurry to go somewhere and
feel anxious or stressed. When we notice we can't find our glasses,
wallet, coat or keys because they aren't where we know we put them,
these angst-driven reality shifts get our full attention. When such
things happen to me, I feel like the universe is saying, "Don't you
get it?!! Anxiety causes the chaos in your life!"
As I've become more comfortable with the notion that our intentions
and emotions affect everything around us, I've developed a greater
interest in learning how our wishes and prayers can make this world a
better place. Instead of making detailed wishes, I wish for whatever
will help me and others attain our highest potential. Without
presuming to know what is best for anyone, I allow for the fact that
situations are often not what they seem to be.
Wishing you all the best that life and love have to offer,
Cynthia Sue Larson

TRANSPORTED PEARL EARRING, ELEVATOR, VANISHING
Marsha, Bay St. Louis, Gulf Coast of Mississippi
My daughter was married in North Carolina this summer, and I lent her
a pair of pearl earrings. For several days after the wedding, she
kept these earrings on. Then, as we were leaving to return home, she
handed them to me. I put them in my pocket, then transferred them to
my travelling jewelry case. As I was unpacking, I noticed one of the
earrings was missing. I was baffled, because I had a very vivid
recollection of where I put them. Last week, I bought another pair of
pearl earrings to replace those that I had lost. Lo and behold, I was
putting some jewelry away, and just going through the drawers and
looking and I opened the drawer that holds my pearl necklace... and
there in plain sight was the lost earring. I can assure you that that
earring was NOT in that drawer, ever. I kept them in a small jewelry
box on my dresser.
Another incident involved missing money. I exchanged $60 in coins and
asked for four ten-dollar bills and a twenty. The change lady handed
me the four tens and one twenty. I turned and walked a few steps
away, sat the money on a stool, and opened my purse to put the money
away... but now there were only three tens! No one had been around
me, and I had held the money in my hand the entire time. I searched
and searched the area, went back to the change booth, and asked the
lady if I had left it on the counter. She assured me I had not. When
I related the incident to my husband, he said that I probably dropped
it and someone picked it up, but I know for a fact that money was in
my hand the whole time and no one else was anywhere near me!
I had another money reality shift-- this time a ten dollar bill was in
a mop bucket in the closet. I don't know how or when it could have
gotten there. Strange!

LAPTOP APPEARS IN CAR
Elizabeth, Johannesburg, South Africa
I recently tapped in to your website. It was like the sun had come
out for me as I have often experienced reality shifts and have not had
any idea what they were. I recall at one stage in my life thinking
that I was mad. Of course now I know differently.
I had a reality shift this very morning. I work for an IT company and
often take home two laptops in order to do work at home. I am very
particular about them and never leave them in the car when I am at
home. The moment I park I remove the computers and put them in a safe
place. I did exactly that yesterday evening. In fact throughout the
course of the evening I took documents out of the one bag. This
morning as I was preparing to leave I could only find one bag. I
hunted high and low and could not find the other bag. My husband
suggested I look in the car, I told him that I took the bag out last
night and that it was not in the car.
On investigating....................... you guessed, I found the bag
on the back seat of my car.
Here's to positive shifts.
John Billingsley, Mytholmroyd, UK
Isn't it funny how time flies, sometimes? Not just when you're
enjoying yourself, necessarily, but also when it seems to have some
agenda of its own. Then - maybe - anything can happen.
In autumn 1995, I was scheduled to teach a day school on my pet
subject, archaic or 'Celtic' heads. It was to be at Bradford
University, a familiar 30-40 minute drive from my home. I set off at
8:30 a.m., to have plenty of time to set up the room before the class
started at 10 am. It was an uneventful drive, and I was a bit
surprised when I arrived to find that all the students were already
gathered in the classroom. I made a joke about them being so keen and
arriving so early, when I glanced at the clock; it said 10:20 am.
This was not funny. I am very particular about punctuality, especially
when teaching, and I had deliberately set off in plenty of time. The
course organiser and students were concerned at my absence at the
scheduled start of the class, and the organiser had phoned my home,
where my wife was able to confirm that I had left at 8.30. Somehow,
the journey had taken just over twice as long as it should have done,
and there had been no accidents, no heavy traffic, no interruption in
the journey. I was shaken, to put it mildly, and could offer no
explanation to the students - just a wry comment about the strange
effects these stone heads can have. I got the class making their own
heads out of some clay while I gathered the teaching material
together, and the rest of the day went without a hitch, but I never
could work out what had happened - why had time flown? I did another
dayschool on the subject there in October 2000, and this time got
there without being hitch-hiked.

THE WHIMSICAL NATURE OF TIME AND SPACE
by Raul daSilva, Connecticut
In the autumn of 1967 I was working as a public relations account
executive in Pittsburgh, PA, at the branch of what was then, and to my
best knowledge, still the largest public relations agency in the
world, Burson- Marsteller. Since my background had been that of an
ad and promotional copywriter, my immediate supervisor, Bob Carter, a
Vice President, began to lose patience with the promotional slant in
my writing style and suggested I take some journalism courses at the
University of Pittsburgh. Hopefully, I would be purged of my fanfare
skew. It was cinched when he said Burson-Marsteller would pay for it
if I delivered an "A" average.
By November, I had been happily attending the University after my
workdays, for two months. Since the job entails applied time and I
would have to account for each hour of my work-day, I would sign out
of the office on Oliver Street at 5PM, then go directly downstairs
where there was a 5:15 bus to Shadyside and the University Campus.
On a bleak, cold and drizzly November Thursday, I signed out of the
office at 5PM, took the bus and got off at the campus stop at 5:45PM
automatically, by this time. It always took me exactly ten minutes
to walk to the hall where my classes were held and by 5:55PM, I would
be sitting at my desk, awaiting the first of two instructors in my two
back to back writing classes which ran roughly one hour and thirty
This time, when I walked into the class I realized right away that I
had walked in on a class already in session. I looked around and
noticed everyone, including the instructor, was strange. Thus, I
quickly and incorrectly, estimated I had walked into the wrong room.
Out in the hallway, beyond the door, I saw that it was the exact room
so I then quickly assumed that the last class had been extended beyond
its time limit. Glancing into another room across the hallway, a
room always empty in the evening, I saw it was also filled with
students with an active class in session.
Stopping a young woman in the hallway, I asked her if she knew why the
classes were held over so late. She looked at me with a puzzled
expression and said, "These classes are not held over, they don't let
out until 5 PM."

EXCAVATION: A SOUL STORY
Kathryn Lanier, Central Piedmont Region, North Carolina
We are fortunate in our area that if we cannot catch the Oprah Winfrey
Show at 4:00pm it is shown on another channel two days later at 9:00
pm. I had been sitting at my desk designing business cards and Oprah
was doing a recap of some of the most profound moments of Gary Zukav's
appearances on her show. She called these moments "ah-ha"
experiences. There were many segments shown that evening but the one
about a premature infant boy named Ryan was a synchronistic moment
that I could not ignore. I doubt there have been many appearances by
Gary Zukav with Oprah that I have missed, but I had indeed missed the
first airing of this segment. A chance flip of the channels, a chance
mention of premature twins, a chance common name -- Ryan, and a chance
to realize, once again, after 6 years what a fortunate mother I am!
Chance? No, synchronicity.
I had one miscarriage in 1990 prior to the conception of my triplets
in 1994 and I knew from the moment I realized her conception that her
name was Hannah Rae. I knew there were at least two boys and possibly
one girl with my triplet pregnancy but I started bleeding on October 1
(30 days after conception) and it did not stop until December 5. That
miscarriage was Matthew Ryan. I have always been convinced that he
went back so that Jacob and Kristina could live. They were born 12
weeks early at 2lb 14oz and 2lb 10oz, were in the hospital 52 days,
and came home weighing less than 5 pounds each, Jacob on a bradycardia
The segment that caught my heart that evening was about a mother who
gave birth to 14 week premature boy twins -- Spencer and Ryan. Ryan
had a brain bleed three days after birth and the doctors brought the
mother down from her hospital room to the NICU (Neonatal Intensive
Care Unit) and finally they said to her, "We would like to stop
resuscitation, what do you want to do?" She told them "OK." A simple
OK was all she could say. She and her husband were allowed to hold
Ryan for as long as they wanted, as long as they needed, to say
good-bye. They buried Ryan the next day.

MAJOR SURGERY WITHOUT FEAR OR PAIN
Chas Kroll, San Diego, California
By-pass surgery was a hurdle I never thought I would have to face,
especially at age 50. I can remember telling my heart surgeon during
our first meeting that "I was Zen Buddhist and solely focused on the
end-result," a vision I held of myself once my good health was fully
restored. What I had to do to achieve that vision was immaterial. What
was material was that the surgery itself and the recovery were merely
stepping stones leading to the end-result I was committed to
I drew on my Zen philosophy of "Shambhala," which teaches the practice
of fearlessness. I also did one of two mantras during my twice-daily
meditations, the first being, "If I act as if I am unafraid, I
gradually cease to be afraid," and the second and more important one
for me being, "Successful people are afraid all the time . . . then
they do it anyhow!"
A third thing that I did, and I can't remember if this occurred during
meditation or just prior to going to sleep one night, a day or so
prior to surgery, but I envisioned the entire procedure in my Mind's
Eye, as if I was hovering over the operating table as an observer. I
saw myself on the operating table surrounded by the entire staff of
healers. I watched the surgeon make a perfect incision in my chest.
Then, he used a small hand-held circular bone saw to cut through my
breastbone, followed by his using the rib-spreader. I remember
thinking how amazing it was to be able to look down and see my own
I watched the surgeon detach each of my mammary arteries one at a time
and reattach them onto the two clogged arteries surrounding my heart,
just beyond the obstruction. I saw someone else (don't know who it
was) make an incision in my right thigh and remove about ten inches of
the vein there, which was spliced in between my aorta and the
remaining clogged artery. I watched the entire closing procedure
unfold. Once completed, I envisioned my blood flowing normally through
my system unobstructed once again, just as it did when I was 20 years
old. I felt the symptoms I was experiencing prior to surgery slip away
into oblivion, replaced by my body carrying a sufficient amount of
oxygen throughout my entire circulatory system. It was an empowering
experience for me!

EYES OF SOPHIA: A DREAM COME TRUE
by Donna May, Alan Chien
This book is a deliciously suspenseful true love story that describes
how Donna May met the man of her dreams, Alan Chien. While we know
from the start where this love story will end, we don't know how two
people from such different walks of life who don't know one another
can recognize each other after their first chance meeting. Told
alternately from Donna's and Alan's point of view, this story
demonstrates the way synchronicity operates in real life. Donna enters
the story as an experienced healer, energy worker, and dream
interpreter who is learning to better understand how to communicate
with spirit. Alan just begins to discover these things as he witnesses
first-hand the way Donna's waking dreams have real-life significance,
and begins to find meaning in coincidental happenings in his life as
well. Both Donna and Alan discover a deeper sense of love and
connection between each other and all that is, as they learn to trust
their hearts and spirits to guide their lives. When I meet couples for
the first time, I almost always ask them, "How did you two get
together?", because I love to glimpse the way the spirit behind
physical things pulls us closer to those we need at just the right
time in our life. "Eyes of Sophia" shares these gifts of spirit with
us as it opens and reveals a world of interpreting dream symbols,
physical pain in our bodies, coincidences and synchronicities. This
book shows how even the occasional disappointments and set-backs along
the way have meaning, and are part of the grand design of life. I love
the way this book effectively demonstrates how the more closely we
observe the details (names, articles, dates, songs), the more
meaningful our own life story can become. Donna May and Alan Chien's
autobiographical tale is exactly the kind of sign-post people need to
find the spiritual meaning behind coincidences in their lives, and
learn how to live a dream-come-true.
THE PK MAN: A TRUE STORY OF MIND-OVER-MATTER
by Jeffrey Mishlove, John E. Mack (Introduction)
I was enthralled to read this remarkable true life story of Ted Owens,
also known as "The PK Man". Ted Owens achieved great fame and
notoriety in the 1970's for accurately predicting numerous
earthquakes, vehicle crashes (including the space shuttle Challenger),
weather changes, sporting event outcomes, UFO appearances, and power
outages, among other things. Ted considered himself to have
psychokinetic (PK) abilities conferred upon him by what he called "the
space intelligences", although he often had difficulty convincing
skeptical journalists and scientists of his powers.
I love the way Dr. Jeffrey Mishlove methodically examines each example
of Ted Owens' PK demonstrations in THE PK MAN, in order to determine
the validity of Mr. Owens' claim that he was using psychokinetic (not
precognitive or clairvoyant) powers. While Ted's PK powers were not
100% fool-proof, many of his predictions for unlikely events (such as
a drought in Florida in the rainy season) came true, and his mere
presence often seemed to trigger earth-changing events (such as the
eruption of Mt. Saint Helens). THE PK MAN fascinated me with its
colorful descriptions of UFO manifestations, Ted Owen's vengeful PK
attacks on those who doubted and discredited him, and the highlights
from Ted Owens' PK training classes. Ted Owens' hypnotic trance
suggestions were designed to greatly increase one's mental, emotional,
physical and spiritual (including psychokinetic) powers... as well as
help people contact extra-terrestrials... and they are included in
their entirety in a chapter towards the end of the book.
MIND INTO MATTER: A NEW ALCHEMY OF SCIENCE AND SPIRIT
by Fred Alan Wolf
Fred Alan Wolf's done it again! His latest book, MIND INTO MATTER, is
a masterpiece of insight into the hidden workings of our magical,
mysterious universe. As I read this book, I felt exhilarated to join
Wolf on his journey "to find our mind" on the frontier of the imaginal
and the real. MIND INTO MATTER is structured around Wolf's
explanation of the significance and meaning behind the first nine
letter-symbols in the Hebrew alphabet, with a separate chapter devoted
to each Hebrew letter. The book begins with the concept of Spirit
within the Void, and continues onward to Creation, Animation,
Resistance, Vitality, Replication, Chance, Unification, and Structure.
We witness the new alchemy at work in the process of Animation, where
we notice how we Think, Feel, Sense, and Intuit the world around us.
I love Wolf's playful way of describing thought experiments throughout
his book, alongside fascinating research material from physicists and
neurophysiological researchers that suggest how our conscious minds
form memories of events. On a deep level, we are aware of all
possibilities available to us, and the one we remember as being real
is the one we choose to observe. Since information flows from the
future to our present time, we have what we need to select the path we
most desire. To everyone who wishes to more fully grasp the breadth,
depth, and height of who we truly are and how we interact with the
universe, I give this book my highest recommendation.
