Create Your Best Life!
How Good Can it Get?

See Through Illusions

Cynthia Sue LarsonCynthia Sue Larson at the Get the Aura Advantage! workshop presented at East West Books in Sacramento on October 14th, 2006

"Don't turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them. You're always free to change your mind and choose a different future, or a different past."
-- Richard Bach

Things are not always as they seem, yet sometimes we can get swept up in things that normally wouldn't bother us at all. Radio show host James Arthur Jancik recently asked me how I could be so consistently positive with so many problems in the world today at the beginning of my recorded November 12th interview Feet to the Fire radio interview, and I replied that the main reason I have such a positive attitude is that I know how much worse things can be. I have memories of a highly unpleasant possible future in which people willingly relinquished autonomous thought in order that they might live more comfortably. Order was maintained in that future society by psychic thought police, who made it their job to prevent anyone from initiating or encouraging independent ideas.

Since I find myself living in a period of time in which so many potential futures still remain possible, my attitude is one of optimism. My perspective is that of a joyful time traveler with a clear sense of purpose to help people understand the power of choosing our thoughts and feelings in such a way that we may create the best possible reality. When we are consciously aware of various possible futures and possible pasts, we can hone our reality selection skills, and become better able to make choices for the here and now that align with our most preferred futures and pasts.

You can practice positively influencing your future by thinking about about something you're looking forward to until you begin feeling excited and enthusiastic; this will help ensure good things will indeed come to you. You can practice positively influencing your past by thinking about everything you're grateful for and most appreciate; this will help to ensure that your past has been very supportive and helpful to you. You can practice positively influencing this present moment by doing a meditation now involving breathing out all your fears, doubts, worries, guilt and other negative feelings... and then breathing in the purest, unconditional love.

Wishing you the best possible past, the best possible future, and the best possible now,

International Aura Awareness Day
2006 November 25
While every one of us has one, few people give much thought to their energy body. Also known as the aura, these shining bodies of light have been recognized for millenia to exist in all living things. Since dark or damaged auras are early warning indicators of every kind of physical, emotional, and psychological problem, it is clear that you can improve your health by taking one day each year to examine your aura. November 25, 2006 will mark the fifth annual International Aura Awareness Day.

Schedule an Event with Cynthia!

The Low Carbon Diet
by Stacie Stukin
Time Magazine
30 October 2006
For years, governments and corporations have been balancing out their emissions by participating in carbon-offsetting — the practice in which they invest in renewable energy to compensate for the global-warming pollution they produce. Now, a small but growing number of individuals are trying their hand at something similar, tightening their own personal pollution belts by going on so-called low carbon diets.,8599,1552237,00.html

Religious Observance May Keep Older People Healthy
by Anne Harding
Reuters UK
15 November 2006
A new study adds to mounting evidence that older people who regularly attend religious services are healthier than those who don't. Among 1,174 highly functioning men and women in their 70s, those who went to a church, synagogue or mosque at least once a week had a significantly slower decline in their lung function over the following years than their peers who didn't go to services regularly, Dr. Joanna Maselko, now at Temple University in Philadelphia, and her colleagues report.

Fitness for All: Yoga Teacher and Author Says the Discipline Can Help in Healing
by Jack Kelly
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
15 November 2006
Author and yoga instructor Amy Weintraub describes how practicing yoga helped her overcome a lifetime of suffering from depression. Studies -- most of them from India -- indicate yogic breathing and asanas (poses) raise levels of the hormones oxytocin and prolactin and increase oxygen levels in the brain, Ms. Weintraub said.

Bleep / Rabbit Hole

Reality Shifting Films
What do movies and TV shows like 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

Changing the Past
Cooperstown, New York

Several years ago I was walking through the woods and I fell. As I tumbled downhill, I heard awful sounds coming from my knee and ankle. I remember thinking that my knee was shattering. When I stopped rolling, I immediately put my hands up towards my leg to start a healing process, saying over and over in my mind frantically, "back in time, back in time."

It was getting dark, so after five minutes or so, I pulled myself up to the main path so I could be found. If I had stayed where I was maybe my ankle would have healed completely right away. When I got to the top, I started the healing again. Perhaps at that point it was for my sanity. I had just finished my second chemo treatment, and I was determined to stay focused on not taking on anything else. Since then, a guide of mine has helped me see the big picture, and I've learned that it's very interesting what we can and will do to get a merit badge, or should I say Spirit Badge! ~@:)

The paramedics told me that it was probably just a sprain. I know they didn't think that I was in pain, because I was calm and quiet, but on the inside I was screaming with pain... yet focused on reversing what had happened.

In the Emergency Room, I was told that I would probably have to have surgery on my ankle, because of the type of break it appeared to be. A few days later when I went to see the orthopedic doctor, he was looking at the x-rays and turned and looked at me with a puzzled look on his face. He said, "your ankle is broken in three places. It looks as though I had already set it ... they are aligned perfectly." I've often wondered if I had reversed a knee injury and had started on my ankle.

Johnnyboy Alive Again RS story
Bobbie Wayne Fitzgerald
Philadelphia, PA

Hello Cynthia, I was led to the BTO audio launch center on August 21st while surfing the net looking for "stuff" that catches my attention. I launched the 24 hour audio streaming and heard you for the first time. You were speaking about reality shifts and how people that heard or read reports of someones death only to shift to another reality where they were not dead. You got my attention, to say the least. Please allow me to relate to you an experience I had from July 1969 through May 1970.

I was arrested for possession and conspiracy to import marijuana on July 29th, 1969 and I spent the next 10 months in a federal detention center in Philadelphia, Pa. Early in my stay I met a young man named John Cavalieri. John was a heroin addict and when he came in he was very thin. We became friends even though I had never even tried heroin. We talked for hours at a time and he explained to me how he was putting his mother through a lot of pain. I tried my best to help him get over his dependency and bring more joy into his life and his mother's. Over the next couple of weeks Johnnyboy, this was his nickname, gained weight and grew stronger. He was released after a few weeks and I supposed that I would not see him again. WRONG! It was a few weeks later and John was back. Again, he had lost weight, and had to spend the first few days being sick, going through heroin withdrawal. Again we talked, and I tried to help him with his problems as best I could. In a few weeks, he was released again.

During my ten months at the detention center, John left and came back two more times. It was a total of 4 times that I was able to witness him come and go. After the 4th time a couple of weeks passed and another inmate came to me with a copy of the Philadelphia Daily News paper and he showed me an article. I am paraphrasing, as this was 37 years ago, John "Johnnyboy" Cavalieri, was pronounced dead on arrival at St Lukes hospital in South Philadelphia. It listed his age. He was found at the bottom of his aunts basement steps having overdosed on heroin. The paper gave the date for the funeral service.

NOW! A few weeks later I was released. I was in South Philadelphia on Broad Street helping a friend move from an apartment. After bringing a box down the stairs and out to the truck I heard a voice call out, "Yo Bob". I looked towards where it was coming from and there, at the traffic light, driving a car, was John"Johnnyboy" Cavalieri. Being an epileptic, I almost went into a swoon. I ran tothe car with my mouth open and heart racing. I could not believe my eyes. I toldhim I read the article, I saw his name, John "Johnnyboy"Cavelieri listed. He assured me that it was not him and a few seconds later we said goodbye and he drove off.

What were the odds that there could be two John Cavalieri's nicknamed "Johnnyboy" of the same age from South Philadelphia, both being heroin addicts and one diesand one lives? I think they are high and your theory on "Shifting Realities"seems more plausible to me than reaching those odds. Sometime between the last time I saws him in the detention center and the time I saw him on Broad Street I experienced a "Reality Shift".

Thank you for clarifying this for me.

(5) Reality Shifters Q & A

Spiritual Life Coach Cynthia

Q: I am slightly confused. I have been shifting reality (my definition) since I was 11. I live by the axiom "Reality is what you create." Since reality is what a person perceives at the moment and if of the same culture the person and I will expect to see the next event of the sequence. If your actions are different from what is preconceived than you have shifted reality to your reality. At that moment your reality is reality and you can use it to to make a sick person feel better if in the reality you created they are better. However, you did not make them well they simply conformed to the current reality and made themselves feel better. I do not understand your principle of items vanishing and reappearing as being a shift in reality. A person alone is in a singular reality if they have a quarter in their hand than the coin is no longer there and the coin returns that is not a shift in reality. The singular reality is they misplaced a coin and than found said coin. It makes no difference if the coin was lost in the sofa or slipped into another dimension for three minutes only to reappear. Both situations fit the same reality it was lost than found. So nothing happened and there was no shift in reality. Your reliance on a physically present item to prove a shift in reality is illogical. Reality is awareness of your current situation and is enhanced but not based on the physical items surrounding you. I am in no way saying these items did not do as written on this sites forum posts. I am asking what does that have to do with shifting reality. I read the first 20 pages, which was all that was on the site, of your book. I agreed with all you wrote and tried to buy the book online. No one was selling it, might be out of print. At any rate I surfed the net and found your references to items shifting. I would appreciate a reply. Thank you in advance.
Best Regards,
-- Clay

A: Dear Clay,

Thanks so much for writing to me! I'm very glad to hear that you've been aware of and observing the way thoughts and feelings influence the physical world since you were eleven years old, and that you are keenly aware that reality is what we create! My book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World is currently available only in ebook format through the web site shop at:

There are a variety of ways that people observe and describe reality shifts, and while the "vanishing/reappearing item" type of reality shift is perhaps the most commonly discussed, some other commonly reported types of reality shifts include: people being noticed to be alive again who had been dead, injuries and illnesses vanishing (such as broken bones, cuts, blisters, tumors), loops in time (in which the exact same sequence of events repeats), time overlaps (in which a person interacts with someone from the past or future), great distances being covered in very short amounts of time, traffic lights and weather changing instantaneously in tandem with one's thoughts, spoon bending with one's thoughts, broken things being whole and fully functional without being repaired, empty containers (including gas tanks) being full without being refilled, money appearing in a wallet, food appearing on the counter, shelves and in the refrigerator (sometimes audibly), lights being flipped on or off without switches being touched, changing something from the past (such as the text in an old book), and objects teleporting from one location to another.

reality shift (ree al' i tee shift), n. 1. the manifestation of objects appearing, disappearing, transforming and transporting. 2. changes in the way we experience time. 3. any sudden, abrupt alteration of physical reality with no apparent physical cause. 4. the source of synchronicity.

This definition of reality shifts is provided in a way that helps people sharing a consensus physical reality to discuss what has happened and what is going on. Discussion about reality shifts is important, since human relationships can otherwise encounter challenges when one person remembers events occurring one way, and another recalls a completely different situation. The article on this subject entitled, When Worlds Collide: How Parallel Realities Can Heal Personal Relationships provides both a description of how it feels to people when such differences arise, as well as a productive way to help people better communicate in a very challenging situation when both people feel they are right about what really happened, and is available to read online at:

I currently know of no way to prove reality shifts, since physical evidence and witnesses so often change right along with whatever else has changed, resulting in my experiencing a reality in which people tell me "it's always been like this," when I inquire about why a new structure has arisen overnight, looking like it's been there for months or years. Regarding the matter of an item which has disappeared, sometimes the reappearance occurs at a very different time and place, making its reappearance dramatic and noteworthy. My daughter's tooth was lost one day at school after it had fallen out, and I was amazed when it reappeared a few inches above my hand many hours later that evening as I was writing a note to myself about how my daughter had lost her tooth at school that day. Such obvious reality shifts clearly indicate to me that there has been a shift in reality, and that something which had gone missing in one place has now been teleported to another time and place where it was desired. You may be interested to peruse the results from the first survey on reality shifts that was conducted in 2000 which describe some of the most commonly reported types of reality shifts. Those survey results are posted online at:
lots of love,
-- Cynthia

Another Place, Another Time

Another Place, Another Time
The Reincarnation of Crazy Horse

by C.D. Montana

A Spiritual Journey Through Time & Space

ANOTHER PLACE, ANOTHER TIME is C.D. Montana's autobiographical account of a challenging yet inspirational period in her life as she became aware of her deep connection with Crazy Horse of the Oglala Sioux tribe. Montana's story begins in Australia, where she was born and raised, and finds its way across an ocean and all the way to South Dakota and Wyoming, as her conversations with her spirit guide led her to more fully explore memories of past lifetimes, particularly a past life as an Oglala Sioux. My favorite part of this book is the 'final words' chapter which provides answers to many long-standing questions about Crazy Horse. What makes Montana's story especially powerful is how candidly she describes some of the heartbreaking personal hardships she underwent at the same time as she was experiencing remarkable miraculous insights and signs from her past life. While some readers may be concerned about an Australian woman being the reincarnation of Crazy Horse, I find Montana's down-to-Earth presentation both honest and refreshing, with immense value to anyone interested in the Sioux, Crazy Horse, and the subject of reincarnation.


Shamans of the 21st Century

by John Jay Harper

Essential Information for the Modern Shaman

TRANCEFORMERS offers a veritable smorgasbord of spiritual information to assist all of us in understanding the coming Earth and energy changes. Author John Jay Harper's central premise is that we are all capable of being modern shamans, with a huge assortment of tools, ideas, and practices available for us at this time of great global transformation. While Harper's book ventures into territories seldom explored by scientists such as himself, these interesting ideas are presented with clarity, humor, and warmth in a way that makes them immediately accessible and useful. Harper's passion for disseminating important shamanic information is fueled by some of his own spiritual epiphanies, which he shares while presenting summaries of ground-breaking work of many current visionaries in the field of consciousness today. While this book describes many aspects of shamanic and spiritual experiences, it does not provide a tutorial in just how, exactly, one may reach such an exalted state; it is an excellent launchpad from which we may better understand our relationship with the universe in these extraordinary times.
