How Good Can it Get?

Cynthia Sue Larson

Choose Positivity

“Just one small positive thought
in the morning
can change your whole day.”
– Dalai Lama

One thing I've learned from paying attention to my dreams and daydreams is what a difference the quality of my inner thoughts and feelings can make. Sometimes, I have awakened from dreams or come out of daydreams, and caught negativity creeping in, in the form of anxiety, or feeling discontent or unsettled. When I notice such emotional or energetic drama, I 'nip it in the bud,' by becoming lucid and awakening within the dream, and clearing uninvited negativity away. Sometimes I feel too tired to deal with negativity during my 'down time' when I need my time to rest, so I request assistant from angelic guides to return peace and harmony.

Before any such clearing takes place, the key underlying concept is that it is possible to select the quality of thoughts and feelings at every point in time and space. This is something we humans have freedom to choose, regardless of outer circumstance, and it is one of the most powerful rights we can exercise. This is much more than a legal right—this is a universal right to ensure our own quality of mental, emotional, and spiritual peace and harmony. Thanks to maintaining such inner peace, stillness, and calm, I have been able to retain a sense of equanimity even through the most difficult and challenging experiences in my life.
How Good Can it Get in Song Contest

I've got some exciting news! The song, How Good Can It Get, that I co-wrote with Lisa Vivian is entered in the running for the International Songwriting Competition. As Lisa Vivian says, “Fingers crossed!” Actually, I feel quite pleased just to know our song is in the running. I've already heard so much wonderful feedback over the many years that I've made this saying my catch-phrase, with people letting me know what a profound positive difference these five little words have made in their lives. This is such a great phrase to think or say aloud at the start of each day, especially when you've got a heartfelt need to really experience the answer in your life.

I've also got a question for you: Did the Fruit of the Loom logo ever have a cornucopia? I've been running surveys on YouTube and Twitter this week, and so far, most people remember that the Fruit of the Loom company prominently featured a cornucopia in their product tags (such as on T-shirt labels) and also in their memorable advertisements in print and on TV. In fact, some people clearly remember a very entertaining TV ad that now apparently is impossible, with people dressed up as fruits dancing out of the cornucopia and all around a stage. What's newsworthy this month is that the Fruit of the Loom company had a chance to comment on so many people remembering their logo being different, and stated on Twitter, “The cornucopia was never in the logo, but the internet isn’t ready for that conversation.” Someone one then asked, “But then why do I think I learned what a cornucopia was from Fruit of the Loom?” The company replied, “The Mandela Effect is real, the cornucopia in our logo is not.” And here is the golden moment, when a company acknowledges that the Mandela Effect is real. This year has so far been something of a breakthrough year for the Mandela Effect, with the University of Chicago research paper demonstrating that there does appear to be something to the Mandela Effect: The Visual Mandela Effect as Evidence for Shared and Specific False Memories Across People. This trend so far is showing that people at the University of Chicago and Fruit of the Loom are acknowledging that there is some very real aspect to the Mandela Effect, and it can't be summarily dismissed.

Mandela Effect, Reality Shifts, Timelines,
Afterlife, the Simulation and Dreamtime

4 Nov 2022
22 minutes
What is the relationship between timelines, reality shifts, and the afterlife?  If we exist in a simulation when living, where do we go when we die?  What, if anything, exists outside of the simulation?  When we go within, are we accessing a part of us outside of the simulation?  These are questions sent to me by my friend, Ross, who also asks: Since physical reality is an illusion, does everything that I experience exist only in my mind/consciousness, or is it being dreamed by my soul (or some other part of me), or is it all just a part of the simulation or some combination?  Where is the simulation coming from?  Is it being beamed from Saturn's rings, as David Icke suggests?  Who created the simulation?  Inquiring minds want to know.

(3) Your Reality Shift Stories

Population Mandela Effect
Riverview, Michigan, USA

This might sound weird, but I feel like I would swear on my life that the world population hit 8 billion in recent years. I lived for years "knowing" this to be true, and I feel like it was a big thing in the news. I swear I heard many people reference it in conversations, but recently I saw an article about how the world population is expected to be distributed when we reach 8 billion. As in, we're not there yet. When I google, that seems correct even though that feels so wrong. Have you heard about anyone else thinking this? Am I just crazy? I don't remember the specific year, but I definitely remember discussing it with people at a previous job in another city. I moved in 2016, and I remember being amazed how quickly we got to 8 billion after 7! I haven't found anyone else who seems to remember it, and it bugs me!

Note from Cynthia: Yes, I also clearly remember some years ago--perhaps about five years ago, back in 2017--seeing that world population had hit 8 billion.  I might even have seen that earlier, back in 2013, I don't know for sure.  I have asked a few other people if they also remember that 8 billion figure for world population, and yes, you and I are not the only ones who remember this.  I see that you are correct, and currently figures show we have not yet hit the 8 billion mark.  I also looked up to see when we hit the 7 billion point, and that was back in 2011, apparently.  I also remember being surprised at how quickly we went from 7 billion population to 8 billion! It did seem like it had just been only a few years. I think for me, that 8 billion point happened sometime between 2013 and 2017, but I don’t know exactly what year. Now that the 7 billion population point apparently was reached in 2011, it makes sense that I would’ve been so surprised if the world population increased that quickly in only a few years time. 


Two Story House and Bilocating Cat
Williams, Ohio, USA

First I wish to thank you. I am also a Capricorn. But in the last few weeks some things have changed. The first was a house that was a single story and nothing special ial, to a two story house that was part green with decortive white tiles. I have gone past that corner so many times.  To my cat not being in her bed one second to looking again and she is there snoring. To being in the kitchen and seeing her tail and walking out to see watch she is up to, only to find her sleeping  again .  I am trying to learn and grow. Sounds strange to say at 55 years old.  You made me realize that there is more at there.  I had lots of interesting experiences when I was young, my mother did not encourage me and after all these years, I am regretting shutting them down.  I welcome any suggestions you might have.

Note from Cynthia: What a treat to hear from you, with some of your wonderful experiences! How intriguing that you are noticing some changes happening in the last few weeks. That timeframe does happen to correspond with the equinox, which is one of the two points in time during the year of equal day and night. Many people do you seem to notice an increase in witnessing Reality Shifts and Mandela effect at the time of the equinox. The types of experiences you were witnessing might seem both large and small at the same time. Watching a house go from one story to two stories is quite noticeable! And witnessing your account first being one place, and then a moment later another, is equally startling. this time of the equinox is a wonderful time to set the intention to further open yourself up to experiencing the true nature of reality. One way to stay on this path is with regular meditation every day, even just for a few minutes. The point of focus of awareness during the meditation can be something simple, like just slowing down your breathing, or taking a few moments to not have any distracting thoughts.

Loretta Lynn
Loretta Lynn died again
New York, USA

Another death Mandela; I thought Loretta Lynn had passed away already, a while back. I don't remember the details of the last 'death,' yet I was surprised to find out that she is on the news today about her 'death' in 2022. It is funny how I'm getting it often. To remember I've heard of your work over 20 yrs. I also heard about the Mandela for awhile and it is interesting yet--not enough to go--I have to look into it. So to note that I wrote you over three times the past 12 months is interesting. It started with Jerry Stiller, then Joanne Woodward, Meat Loaf and now this. Although with this last one with Loretta Lynn -- it was the first time that I don't remember the details of her first death unlike the other ones. Yet, I still remember seeing how she had passed away before. In fact, I almost don't remember my Mandela experiences from before that I have shared with you. So I'm glad that they are being included in your website. Lol! My take on that is--beside the natural effect forgetting from memory hence why we journal-- that it may have to do with the constant shifts we are constantly going through, specifically the golden age being here and present. Like you said in your recent video something about that. For me that the golden age involves humanity's liberation and enlightenment, so I feel the memory of life before that may be 'erased' or whatever. I guess like when we come in between lives or something, who knows. Lol

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing that you remember Loretta Lynn having passed away previously, a while back.  I'm certain you are not the only one to recall having heard reliable reports of her death previously.  The "Mandela Effect" gets its name due to the way many people noticed they collectively remembered specific details in common related to the way Nelson Mandela had died years earlier while he was incarcerated on Robbins Island, and this is one of many such reports.  If more people had noticed actor Larry Hagman having died and being alive again as I write about in my book, "Reality Shifts," we might now have the "Hagman Effect" rather than the "Mandela Effect."  But one thing is for certain, and that is that people absolutely are noticing a variety of possible histories and facts.  Yes, there are increasing reports and observations of people being alive again, and I truly appreciate your sharing your experiences.  I'm sure it helps all of us to make a point to notice and discuss these things when we witness them, in order that we can all better appreciate the true nature of reality--which appears to have consciousness at its foundation.  And it is interesting how sometimes, we don't even recall all the reality shifts and Mandela Effects that we have noticed so far--and sometimes when we notice them, we observe that in some way they might be changed or different, too.  Yes, all of this indeed feels like the dawning of a Golden Age for humanity to acknowledge consciousness as our true nature, and as the true basis for All That Is.

Marla Gibbs
Marla Gibbs alive again
New York, USA

I don't remember yet I thought Marla Gibbs from The Jefferson sitcom. passed away, not that long ago. Yet a friend of mine posted on her Facebook today, sharing how she has met Marla at a meet and greet. Very interesting. This Mandela Effect differs in the sense that she is still alive, vs alive, dead, and dead again. And the memory I have of her death was fairly recent although I don't remember the details of it. It is as if like time is collapsing or something. Or I'm witnessing one or both parallels close together. The message I got, that the fact I see her alive is a good thing. It is a better world with her in it. She must hold some good energy or in this realm, it is a better world than the other reality. And this is the first time I experience a celebrity being alive vs dead, so that is always nice as well. Like when you shared a story when people thought you have previously passed yet were happy to see you were alive and well. I don't have that memory of you being gone, however it was a good decade before I took notice to your work again. It has been over 20 years since the reality shift book yet it is only recently that this all been something beyond a concept from a book, specifically the Mandela Effect. It is experiencing it, versus reading about it and etc. 

Note from Cynthia: Thanks for sharing this news of your noticing that the actress Marla Gibbs, famous from starring in the TV show "The Jeffersons" is alive again.  Probably if you have clear memories that Marla Gibbs recently passed away, there are many other people who also share such memories.  I am glad you paid attention to what you were thinking and how you were feeling at the time you noticed the difference between Marla having died, and then seeing your friend's social media post on Facebook that she met Marla at a meet and greet.  For the time being, this "alive again" sighting just involves the alive again aspect, and I love your perspective that this reality benefits from having Marla Gibbs alive!

Terry Pratchett
Terry Pratchett hat Mandela Effect
Berlin, Germany

Have you ever read a Terry Pratchett book, Cynthia? He was brilliant. His novels took place on a flat world, carried by four elephants and flying through space on the back of a turtle. Unfortunately, he died in 2015.
As for the blurb of his novels, my husband and I have read almost all of his Discworld novels, there was a photo of Terry wearing the traditional hat. And this is where it gets interesting--in terms of a potential Mandela Effect. My Terry Pratchett, aged about 25, wore the same hat in these photos and in all of his public appearances. One of these Australian models in brown leather. Similar to this one.
brown Barmah hat

Never ever did he change this style. The Terry Pratchett of this timeline wears traditionally a black, rather european hat. Whenever I feel that I have shifted to another timeline, I am looking for Terry's hat. ;-) So far, he never got the "original" brown one back; It's so weird to see him with this quite classical black hat. :-) I just wanted to share the story with you! Have a very beautiful day.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so very much for writing to me about how you clearly recollect that Terry Pratchett's hat was brown, and of the "Barmah" style, with wide flat brim and distinctive character--that is entirely different from what now appears in all the photographs of Terry Pratchett wearing his trademark black hat.  I can see why you keep checking, to see what kind of hat Terry Pratchett has been photographed wearing for all these years--wondering if one day, you might see it either change shape, style, or color closer to what you remember so well. This kind of "indicator Mandela Effect" can provide us with something to keep an eye on, in case we do witness a change--such as some people have witnessed with such indicators as:  Mona Lisa's smile; Rodin's "The Thinker" hand position; or changes to various products or logos.  Please keep me posted if you ever do witness further changes to Terry Pratchett's hat, and I look forward to hearing from readers if anyone else shares your memory of his hat being more the way you recollect than what it's supposedly been all along.

From Hellish Fearful to Heavenly Bliss
Youngsville, Louisiana, USA

So this story starts with an Apple Watch. To preface the story one of my patients was having a very low pulse and then it would go very high. So I told her that I would check it later on And later on I had went into an area of general population where they meet to fix me a cup of coffee. At that time I remembered that I needed to recheck the pulse. When I approached the patient I realized that I didn’t have my phone with me and I didn’t have on a watch. But she did - she had on an Apple Watch, and she proceeded to open up a diagnostic area to review her pulse for me. Pretty handy, but the conspiracy theorist in me made me say, “Can I see that a minute?” At this time, I grabbed her watch from her hand, and started to scroll through some information on it and one thing that I saw that caught my eye. It said, something like “project Jupiter nano experiment” and I fearfully thought to myself, oh my goodness. I guess that’s all I really need to say about that. Around the middle of August I went to AT&T to get a new phone and was offered a special medical program that made my bills super cheap even with tons of people on it, I got my ex husband a new iPhone because he pays for my medical insurance still even though we’ve been separated like a decade. My son is on there my daughter is on there I put my mom on there I have an iPad on there and a new phone on there, and the price per month is unbelievable, they also said that by signing up you get this Apple I watch for free, basically they will charge your account $10 a month and reimburse it on the same bill, they will charge $10 for the service and reimburse it on the same bill monthly. After seeing what I did with the patient I spoke of above I accepted  the watch, and in my mind I was like I am not putting that thing on my body. I spoke about this to my friend Tiffany at work and she said, “I have an old Apple Watch, if you don’t want it you could sell it to me! What color is it?” I’d informed her it was rose gold. “that’s even the color that I want!” She happily proclaimed.  at this time she expressed how much she loved the rose gold of the color of the new apple watches. And she’d be happy to purchase it from me. I told her, “Girl, you don’t have to pay me for it just take it! Please!” She was aware of my thoughts, and kinda giggled and said, “Well I’m gonna give you something for it“ and I said, “No you’re not, Girl, please just take that thing!” I did not have the watch on me at that time, it was at home in the box still and I was getting off at 7 AM and she was coming on. I got home took a bath got undressed and realized that I had forgot some thing I had ordered from the restaurant at work that I was going to bring home for my son. So I called Tiffany and I said. “I have a great deal for you, I’m gonna be driving up there with no bra on, (I chuckled) if you just bring me Devinn‘s dinner plate, I’ll give you the watch! that’s all the payment that I want.” She laughed and said, “no problem, come on back.” Upon arriving at work with the Watch, again she stressed that she was going to pay me some thing, and I expressed to her I did not want anything in return, I was just glad that she was taking it. That was a Tuesday morning and on Thursday, our payday She sent me $50 through PayPal. I fussed at her and said you didn’t have to do that, but you will soon see why I am so glad that she did. Two people than I confide in at work I had told sometime within the last couple of months I thought? That I had had a terrible dream, it was just a scene of Tiffany in her uniform laying on the floor in the bathroom deceased with my watch on. I was terrified, I remember writing it down in my dream book but when I went back to look I couldn’t find it, I’m so glad I had told April and Harley about my dream, because on October 20 I got a call that Tiffany had been found dead that morning.

A shock surged through my body. I felt like because of all of my truth seeking, trying to awaken people, studying conspiracy theories over the years, something had caused the unknown elite supremacy to attempt to strike me dead through this watch, but then the target ended up being someone else. I felt responsible; I was so glad that I told her ahead of time why I didn’t want it, kind of like if you were selling someone a haunted house and had disclosed the information before the purchase. I cannot describe to you how terrified I truly was.  I was obsessing over it, let alone the fact that I felt like someone had put the dream in my head, and even just the fact that I had dreamed it before it happened shocked me to my inner core. I was crying a lot and I reached out to an old coworker who is always very psychic on accident and seems to always say the right thing, she reassured me that there was some thing else, another message to the dream, to Tiffany being dead on the floor with my watch on. She said maybe it is a message that we should all value the time with our family and then she said I really don’t know exactly what the message of this is, but I do know one thing, you will know the meaning of the watch soon, and I can promise you this darling, It is certainly nothing bad, that - I can assure you. At one point I went back into my bedroom and I felt some chest pain and some heart flutter and I thought oh my goodness, I must be next! But then all of a sudden, I did not hear it, it was like an imagination that I didn’t imagine, I heard Tiffany chuckle and I got a download basically that I interpreted as her saying , “It wasn’t the watch silly, it was my heart.” I later found out that Tiffany had previously had a heart attack, and even though she was only 49, she had been walking daily with another coworker and had not walked in like a week and a half because she’d been so tired. Before that, her old Apple Watch would show that her heart rate was going up to like 170 bpm to 180 bpm while walking. And the coworker that walked with her had told her she needed to go to her doctor to check on that, but she persisted in just trying to exercise and eat right to fix it, because she was already on a medicine for the rapid heart rate. That for some reason gave me some relief. Just to know that she had a history - because I thought this just came out of the blue and she was so young.
sympathy card
The beautiful turn around: The next evening I took my mom to the grocery store and I thought I better pick up a sympathy card for the family. To be honest, I really didn’t look well at them. I just saw one that was beautiful that had some roses on it, I kind of skimmed over the poem on the front, and since it had roses on it, I went to the flower section and saw a single rose that was white with trim that matched the card with a bow around it, then also match the card- I also bought a tray of little bitty brownies and a tray of some pumpkin bread, and red velvet swirl cakes, and I thought maybe my little gift could be left at the family home for people coming in and out there before the funeral. And I got home and began to fill out the card. As I read the card, I felt Tiffany's spirit around me! She gave me a knowing that the card and the foil on it that was rose gold, and the roses on it and the rose all connected to the rose gold watch! I actually feel her right now! She loves this story! And I have tears in my eyes. I will attach a picture of the card, but I must let you know that Tiffany was almost 6 feet tall and her little husband was about 5’4”- they were a very happy couple, and were both always picked on about this, and they just laughed and laughed. 

I will attach a picture of the card and the rose, the card said well I’ll try to summarize here, that a single rose grew along side a garden wall and over the years it grew straight and tall (straight and tall like tiff! Lol) One day a crevice opened in the garden wall and the sunlight shown through and the rose bent naturally toward the warmth and passed on through to the other side. That’s basically what it said but I’m just summarizing it. I started to cry realizing that I had accidentally bought this card, and accidentally picked up the rose and didn’t realize what gift I was about to deliver.  Her nephews wife was working that night at my work 11 P to 7A, I called Brianna and I asked her if she could give me Tiffany‘s address or would she be going around them in the morning where she could deliver the gift, card and the cake trays. She told me to bring it to work right then if I could, that her and her husband were going over there in the morning and she would gladly deliver it for me. On the short drive to my work it came to me- BAM! The card was rose gold the rose had rose gold trim and a rose gold bow the card also had roses on it and a poem about a tall rose. And the watch! The watch was ROSE GOLD! Upon arriving at work Brianna told me that her and her mother-in-law which is Tiffanys sister were at Tiffany’s home earlier that day trying to decide what clothes to bury her in, they asked her little short husband what he wanted to bury her in, (oh my goodness I feel Tiffany right now as tears swell up in my eyes!) that husband said “ well I don’t really care what you bury her in the only thing I ask is that she has on that darn watch she loved that watch more than anything she had“. And Brianna added that he had just bought her a bracelet watch wristband thing that had engraved in it “I love you to the moon and back” and he had literally just given it to her a couple days prior. So Tiffany was buried with my watch on, so she was in fact dead with my watch on.  which basically is what I’d dreamt, but a much more beautiful dream than I have ever imagined was shining through!!!! So I leaned toward the warmth and passed to the otherside - from fear and terror to love and warmth about this situation!  I could not for the life of me remember how long ago it was I had that dream, I had asked April and Harley to see if they remembered when I had it, but then I remembered that she had made me that $50 payment! So I looked back on my PayPal, and saw that she’d sent me the money on August 31, 2022, and she died October 20, 2022. It seems it was long after she paid me and long before she died that I had the dream so it must’ve been somewhere in the middle. I am including a picture of the card with the rose gold foil writing - and a picture of the rose that I took her but I must add that the photo of the rose that I took was taken in my car, it was dark and late at night in the parking lot of my work. So it looks orange but it wasn’t orange, it was a beautiful rose gold just like the Apple Watch!

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing this detailed experience with me, and the song, too!  Yes, I agree that this can most probably be very helpful to people who might be feeling anxious or fearful or freaked out about something, to see that it really is possible to go from a place of feeling deeply concerned (what some might even call paranoid) to a place of truly feeling blessed.  What a blessing to help people remember this, and what better way than through such a heartfelt real life experience and story?  One of the key things I love to ask people when they share reality shift experiences is what they were thinking and how they were feeling at the time they recognized a shift--and you do such a lovely job while sharing this experience of including your thoughts and feelings along the way.  I love how you so openly share your thoughts and feelings which truly are at the core of how we each frame our experience of reality.


(4) Mail Bag, Questions, and Answers

Dear Cynthia,
I’m wondering if you have an opinion on a Mandela effect “flip flop”.   I experienced one when I noticed a brief scene in a music video that wasn’t there anymore. It was like that since June, now the scene is back.  I know I’m not imagining things as I watched the video a few times after noticing it gone, (I even shared it with others to see if they noticed the change). bewildered as to where the scene went, and now I’m surprised today to see it back. I’m wondering what your take is on flip flops.  Does this mean I was getting somewhere with my jumping to a better realm and now I’m backsliding? Or maybe it’s not me doing the jumping, but Cern. I’m not sure. Thought I’d see what you think. Let me know your thoughts if possible, thanks so much for your input.

Dear Rachael,
Thanks so much for writing to me with these questions.  The first step after noting what appears to possibly be a reality shift or Mandela Effect flip flop, is to consider other possible explanations, such as there may have been more than one version made of that music video.  Once we've ruled out other explanations, then we're left with considering how we may have just witnessed reality shift flip-flops. The next step I highly recommend is to pay attention to what you were doing and thinking about and feeling at the times you noticed reality shifts.  When people send me their personal reality shifts and Mandela Effects, this is typically what I request in addition to whatever details they are describing.  These observations of what you were thinking and feeling can often directly relate to the shift in reality, and provide insights as to what kind of two way conversation you've been having with the Cosmos at various times.  I would not immediately jump to the conclusion that you are backsliding--rather that there is some connection you uniquely have to the disappearing/reappearing scene, and how it feels and what it means to you. It's my perspective that you and your thoughts and feelings matter far more than whatever may or may not be happening at CERN.
With love and blessings,


Dear Cynthia,
May I please ask what is your personal feeling/guidance about this: In this reality paradigm, are there: 7.5 billion people with 7.5 billion totally unique versions and subjective experiences of ‘world reality’ based on one’s unique vibration i.e. totally ‘unique world realities’ experienced by each person with varied expressions of absolutely everything/everyone (more empowering as when you ‘shift your vibration, you shift your total reality perceived’)--This is more like ‘Bashar style’ OR 7.5 billion people with 7.5 billion unique personal experiences, yet still within one ‘tied-in’ objective ‘reality base paradigm’ (less empowering as ‘more dependent on others shifting too’) I hope this makes sense? I love, honour and respect your personal FEELing and guidance about this. Thank you so very much dear Cynthia and know that you are so, so loved and appreciated in this paradigm! With Infinite LOVE and Gratitude,

Dear Tuula,
Thank you so very much for your lovely email message to me! I am more a fan of the subjective reality paradigm, despite the fact that we often seem to share many aspects of our experiences.  I've covered the physics of this in a paper I co-authored with physicist George Weissmann, "The Quantum Paradigm and Challenging the Objectivity Assumption."  I've witnessed different realities sometimes than those standing right next to me, as I have shared in my book, "Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World."

Dear Cynthia,
Watch Carol Burnet spoof “Mirror, mirror on the wall”--not “Magic mirror” on the wall!

Dear Sandy,
This is very interesting! I'm especially intrigued by the way that the "Mirror, Mirror" lines in this Carol Burnett show skit occurred twice, with both Snow White and Prince Charming saying those exact words instead of "Magic Mirror on the wall", and then in addition to that, they continued to riff a bit on the repeating monosyllable words:  "Soup soup dum dum" and "Yum yum."  This is a great find of 'residue'--of other folks clearly remembering what many of us also remember, that the famous line used to be "Mirror Mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?" Thank you so much for sharing this!
lots of love,


Hey, Cynthia!
I just finished reading a short book, Instant Divine Assistance, by a man named Benjamin Bernstein, and it made me think of you. I felt compelled to tell you about it! I know you are a fan of saying “how good can it get?” and Benjamin says “it always gets better”! The book is about short invocations to improve our lives, and he also has videos on his site that go into the main ones. I’m not affiliated with him in any way, but I thought you would really like the invocations/his book. I’ve been following you for years, and the line about it always getting better especially made me think of you! Anyway, have a wonderful day/night/life!

Dear Autumn,
Thanks so much for sharing this with me!  You're right, that I would love that statement. One of the things I like about asking a question is the way it activates imagination in people, which has the ability to spark connections to Divine Source / Creator / God.   :-)
Lots of love and blessings,


Hawaiian Islands
Hi, Cynthia!
I recently read an article about the Hawaiian Islands, and noticed an island I had never heard of before. I now see it's on all the maps, but I swear this island was not there before. I love Hawaii, I've been to Hawaii three times in my life and I've never heard of this one. Have you? Maybe it just wasn't in my bubble of reality before. It's called Kahe'elawe, and is just below Maui and Lana'i. Thanks very much for your input!

Dear Alicia,
Wow, that one is new to me! But then again, so is Niihau, which is up just below Kauai and a bit to the west. I vaguely recall there may have been a couple of smaller islands, and did not really study the Hawaiian islands all that closely, so I'm not really sure if those two were there before for me, or not.  Do you remember Niihau? 
Lots of love,


Dear Cynthia,
I'm reaching out to you because I don't really know who else to go to. Over the past couple of months I've been experiencing what I call verse jumps, where I find myself in a reality that, while nearly identical to the one I'm from, isn't quite the same. This has happened about 25 times so far. The Mandela Effect has been hitting me in the face to the point where it's almost an every day occurrence. I haven't been in my home verse in months, and I'm certain I'm not going back. Time has been unpredictable, lurching forward at times, and on the rare occasion almost stopping. It also has become apparent that the universal odds--luck if you will--has been wildly unpredictable, with nearly impossible things falling into place, while seemingly sure things fall apart in front of me. I realize these sound like the rantings of a mad man, but I assure you it's the universe that's gone crazy, not me. Any advice would be appreciated. 

Dear Jason,
Thanks so much for writing to me and sharing some of your recent experiences.  These kind of shifts have been coming to people's attention more often in recent years, and it really can be a daily occurrence.  I've been noticing and writing about ongoing Reality Shifts and Mandela  effects for decades now, and sometimes they can still be quite startling.  I mentioned this so you can understand that I do not consider your experiences to be the rantings of a madman.  in my book, Reality Shifts:  When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, I provide reassurance, support, and examples of finding ways to come to peace with and begin to thrive in an ever shifting reality.  One simple tip to start with is to recognize the possibility that our true foundational reality is not based so much in the material world, but rather the realm of consciousness.

Something else you may find helpful that includes some tips and a meditation is that I recently gave a presentation to the Lonestar Dowsers group based in Texas that covers some of the philosophy, science, and perspective about thriving with awareness that life is very much like a waking dream.  Just as we can become lucid dreamers when we sleep, we can also become more fully lucid when we are awake.

Lots of love,
