RealityShifters News - October
Changing the Physical Universe With Our Thoughts and
Have you been feeling stressed recently from hearing about
world events? This October issue of RealityShifters News is
dedicated to healing for those of us who have felt inundated
with fear-based messages.
You'd just about have to be living in a cave to avoid all the
fearful messages on television, in the newspaper, and emails.
These messages can exact a heavy toll on us if we let them --
or they can roll away like water off a duck's back, if we hone
our skills at releasing our fears. Sure, we can keep the TV
turned off, avoid reading newspaper headlines and delete our
emails unread -- but this is only a stop-gap measure at best.
Chances are pretty good that we'll see someone who will mention
whatever the media is choosing to play up at that moment.
What's working best for me right now is to ASSESS the fear I'm
feeling each day, CHOOSE to let go of it, and invite healing
energy in to HEAL. You can do this right now, even as you read
ASSESS: Ask yourself, "Am I feeling at all fearful right
Sense how your body is feeling, and where you can feel fear
inside you. Wherever you sense fear, take several breaths and
continue feeling it's presence within you. You can hold a hand
over the area (or areas) if you wish, in order to get a better
sense of where it is and how it feels.
CHOOSE: Ask yourself, "Am I ready to let go of this fear
now?" You won't lose your ability to react quickly in a crisis,
because inspiration will be still be with you, guiding you.
The only thing we lose when we let go of fear is the fear.
HEAL: When you feel ready to release your fear, take a deep
breath and visualize worries slipping away from you, deep down
into the Earth. Breath in, and imagine the colors of the rainbow
coming into you from above, through the top of your head, helping
you release your fears. With each inhalation, a feeling of Love
washes over you. With each exhalation, fear slips away.
Wishing you all the best,
Cynthia Sue Larson

REALITY SHIFTS: HEALING THINGS
by Cynthia Sue Larson
It is just as easy to heal things as to heal people, and the results
can be wonderful and amazing to witness. I hope you'll read this
amazing (and true!) story of how I rediscovered that things are every
bit as responsive to healing thoughts and feelings as people are:
INTRODUCTION TO AURAS & AURA IMAGING
by Guy Coggins
What are auras, and what do they look like when photographed?
This article by aura camera inventor Guy Coggins, who designed an
aura camera based on the electrical impulses of the body.
INVENTOR OF 'AURA' CAMERA IS SPLIT BETWEEN SCIENCE AND MYSTERY
by Michele Sullivan
On inventor Guy Coggins' aura video device, healers show threads
or clouds of energy moving from their auras into the auras of their
clients. Lovers who are photographed together will actually show a
merging and blending of their energies. Lies will show up as a rapid
flaring of red tints within the energy field.

JIMMY DURANTE DIES AGAIN
One Hot August 1977 afternoon in Palm Springs, California, I
was writing checks for the monthly bills, when I heard on the
TV that the beloved entertainer Jimmy Durante had passed away.
I was so sad at this news, as I had been a fan of his wholesome
entertainment all of my life. The TV show had excerpts from his
television show of him singing his song, "Inka-Dinka-Doo", and
some of the many skits with famous entertainers, like Tallulah
Bankhead, Eddie Cantor, Robert Mitchum, Charles Laughton, and
Peter Lawford. Jimmy had seemed old for so long, that I was
alarmed when he suffered a stroke in late 1972. His health
declined from then on. Wheel-chair bound and visibly frail,
accompanied by his adopted a daughter, Cecilia, at his 83rd
birthday bash in 1976 (his last public appearance), he once
again sang in his famous gravel voice "Inka-Dinka-Doo". I
whispered a blessing and a heartfelt good-bye, and thought I
will really miss his joyful spirit. I mentioned it to my
daughter when she came to visit later that evening, and told
her of my sadness at his demise.
Three years later on January 29, 1980, my daughter brought
a newspaper with a headline banner that read: "Beloved
Entertainer Jimmy Durante Dies", just shy of his 87th
birthday. Need less to say I was DUMBFOUNDED! Although my
life has many Reality Shifts, this was the first one in which
another person remembers the alternate reality.

Back in 1992, I experienced a very strange coincidence that
defied reason. I was the manager at a west-end London
Underground (subway) station, one of the biggest. A
desperately worried plainclothes policewoman came to my
office having lost her warrant ID card. This is almost a
crime of negligence to a member of the police. I phoned the
station supervisor at Holloway Road, a north London station
where she had started the journey. He remembered her showing
it in the lift, and said he would check the station. After
ten minutes, he returned, saying he could not find it.
I told the lady the unfortunate news, and we chatted for a
few minutes. The phone rang, and it was the supervisor at
He said that a contractor working on the station with him
had popped into his office and overheard the last phone
conversation with me. He said that he had been at Liverpool
Street Station an hour before, and seen a person hand a
warrant card to a City Policeman saying she had found it on
the station. I told the policewoman this, and she later told
me she had retrieved it from the police station at Liverpool
The odds against this line-up of events (there are nearly
three hundred tube stations) must be immense. The contractor
seeing the find just before the moment of overhearing the
conversation. Indeed, truth is stranger than fiction.
A VERY SPECIAL DOG
Fort Lauderdale, Florida
There are so many things that are hard to explain... like
synchronicities, for example.
Two years ago, right after my 40th birthday, my family decided
they wanted to get me a dog as a belated birthday present. We
went to the Humane Society, and each one of us individually wrote
down our first choice, without telling anyone else. To our
surprise, we all agreed on a beautiful female dog named "Pattie"
by the workers at the pound!
Since my family in Mexico calls me Pattie, we figured that is
the main reason we chose her. It helped that we all liked her
markings: Irish-golden bright red with white.
We took her to a room to get acquainted, before deciding if she
would like us or not. She immediately snuggled with me, and moved
wherever I moved. It was so endearing. I asked the pound volunteer
if she knew about Pattie's history. She only said: We have no
history. We found her on September 24th (my birthday) wandering the
streets. That was it. We had to have this dog. She was named like
me, and was found on my birthday, and followed me everywhere.
After couple of months, we started noticing that Pattie had a
white "swan" on her back which included the neck, beak, and body of
the bird. It's amazing. What's most amazing is that my mother has
called me "Swan" since I was little. Goodness. I love it when
THE MISSING COIN and THE GLASS OF WARM WATER
I'm the engineer/scientist in the family (three patents); thoroughly
skeptical, with a some knowledge of psychological and physiological
explanations for many otherwise unexplainable occurrences. My father
and are alike in this regard, but my mother and my eldest sister have
encountered many strange events in their lives, and throughout my life
I've heard many of their stories. Apart from some inexplicable "luck"
that repeatedly occurred on St. Patrick's Day, I've only had two truly
head-scratching incidents, although several stories mentioned (the
missing book, the empty pocket of change, the closing time) have also
occurred to me.
THE MISSING COIN
I was living in New Jersey in the mid-80's. One of the major
highways is a toll road, and my commute required me to pay exactly a
dollar on a daily basis, in four quarterly installments. So often in
the morning I would cash in a dollar bill, drop the 3 quarters in a tray
in my car, and use them thereafter to feed the toll machines, as I did
on this day. So I was driving home one night when something started
going wrong with my car. I pulled off early, incurring a 15 cent toll,
leaving a quarter in the tray. I found a gas station with a phone booth
and pulled in and parked, glad that I still had a quarter to use for the
phone. Except, of course, that the quarter was not in the tray. I
remember looking, staring, closing my eyes, looking again, but the
quarter wasn't there. I got a really eerie feeling because I have often
wondered about the hand of God, miracles, etc., and, I'm sure like many
others, had desired an explicit act of some kind to warrant or justify
faith. So I spent extra time crawling around the floor of my car,
looking in the seats, checking my pockets, etc. for that last quarter -
to no avail. I probably called collect to my nearby girlfriend's house,
I don't remember what was wrong or what I did about it, but I absolutely
recall coming back to the car and seeing the quarter in the tray from
the outside before I even opened the car door.
I have a meager theory about some of these things - about how our brain
builds symbolic representations of what we see and sense etc.,
and that, of course, on occasion, the brain just flubs it. What we
perceive as a normally consistent world, apples falling, trees waving in
the breeze, is a symbolic assembly in the brain for what we're not
directly looking at. An imperfect assembly at times for all of us, and
sometimes for some people, a perpetually imperfect assembly, as for
example "The Man Who Mistook His Wife For A Hat", a book of stories about
neurological illnesses by Oliver Sacks, who is the real doctor who
really did the things in the one story that they based the Robin
Williams movie "Awakenings" upon.
This theory can be stretched to apply to scenarios involving a few
people. Other theories, such as the coin flipped into one of other
dimensions envisioned by String Theorists (the cutting edge of particle
physics), are also plausible. I collaborated once with a very brilliant
man who published an article in Scientific American in which, among many
other things he cited me for this collaberation, he discussed the
probability that a person's wave function (in the quantum physics sense)
could cause them to shift instant to the surface of Mars. It involves a
very very large number, which is the subject of the article, but the
point is that it is entirely possible given today's understanding of
physics. So maybe the coin's wave function just blipped somewhere else
and came back. The odds would probably favor my theory.
THE GLASS OF WARM WATER
Late one Saturday California morning, late 1980's, probably 11ish but
perhaps a bit earlier, I decided to do a little cleaning up around the
house. In front of the couch was a glass of water, blue plastic in my
mind even though I didn't have blue plastic glasses at that time, but
that's how I remember it. My wife had had a glass of ice water the
night before and hadn't taken it to the kitchen. The glass was on the
floor a few inches in front of the couch near one of its ends. We
hadn't used that room that morning. I picked up the glass and was
struck by the fact that the glass and the water within it were warm to
the touch. Not as far as hot, but distinctly warm, much warmer than tap
water, warmer than aquarium water (high 80's). I showed it to my wife
who basically shrugged her shoulders at it after disavowing any
knowledge with regard to it. I feverishly considered the
possibilities. Despite being California, it was possible that the
furnace had been running that morning, that the heat flow came out under
the couch and had heated the glass of water. At some point I felt the
warm air indeed emanating from under the couch and pretty much
discounted that possibility. The only other explanation was that the
glass had been exposed to the morning sun, and, being blue, absorbed
quite a bit of heat. But the glass had been in front of the couch which
would almost certainly have blocked the rays, and moreover, the sun
didn't shine into that room until the afternoon.
Again, its possible for the glass to have heated itself, decreasing its
entropy as overall entropy elsewhere increased. Maxwell's demon might
have made an appearance. I don't have any alternate theories.

HEALING WITH THE RAINBOW RAYS
Don't let the title of HEALING WITH THE RAINBOW RAYS mislead you --
there is much more than just color therapy involved here.
Alijandra has done an excellent job of bringing several different
healing techniques (color, sound, crystals, herbs, movement)
together in one ambitious reference book. The basic techniques
of grounding, balancing, protection, and clearing energy are
described, as are the chakra and endocrine system. Additionally,
the essential art of dealing with psychic hooks and chakra blocks
I was delighted to be able to make immediate use of the concept of
working with the rainbow rays of color for self-healing. In just
a few minutes, with the aid of a simple color visualization
technique, I cleared out a long-standing pattern of fear which had
resided in the cells of my body for most of my life (a kind of
background noise that I had become accustomed to). I'm grateful to
have noticed tremendous and lasting improvement from such a simple
HEALING WITH THE RAINBOW RAYS is valuable for healers of every level
of experience, since Alijandra takes care to explain basic terms and
also outline some rather advanced exercises such as: time travel,
teleportation, levitation, invisibility, and shapeshifting. Another
unexpected surprise about this book is it's coverage of the "black
ray" -- an often overlooked color in healing.
I recommend this book to anyone with an open mind to seeing the world
in new ways, and most especially to anyone who wishes to heal
themselves or others.
THE GIFT OF LIFE: Female Spirituality and Healing in
by Bonnie Glass-Coffin
Prior to THE GIFT OF LIFE, little had been written about the role
women play in healing and shamanism in Northern Peru. Part of the
reason for this oversight had to do with the way European
colonization brought the concept of "witchcraft" to Peru, and the
fact that Peruvian women who practiced traditional healing arts were
frequently beaten and tortured until they confessed to standard
European-style "witchcraft" practices. Author Bonnie Glass-Coffin
was trained as an anthropologist, so she knew that women have
historically played a large part in shamanism from looking at the
ancient sculptures of the Moche and Chimu, which both portray women
involved in healing arts. With the intention to find and interview
modern-day women shamans in Peru, Glass-Coffin set out to do exactly
Bonnie Glass-Coffin shares the stories from five female curanderas
(shamans) she met with between April 1988 and September 1989. Her
extraordinary book, THE GIFT OF LIFE, describes the daily life of
these female curanderas and the story of how they became healers,
and includes black and white photographs of their mesas (curing
altars) and healing herbs (plants such as the San Pedro cactus).
Glass-Coffin's background in anthropology and her accounts of her
experiences living in Peru as she grew up give this book a unique
feeling of personal relevance and social perspective.
I was impressed that THE GIFT OF LIFE does not shy away from
describing the ways curanderas have used their spiritual powers on
some occasions for sorcery. Glass-Coffin describes "dano" as
intended harm by sorcery, and tells stories and includes pictures
of how Peruvians have discovered and dealt with the harmful magic
of others. She also describes some of the differences between male
and female healers in Peru -- such as the way female curanderas
tend to involve patients more directly in their healing. I was also
impressed that Glass-Coffin described her own personal involvement
being healed by curanderas, giving this book tremendous warmth.
The first-hand accounts of what it feels like to suffer as the
recipient of a dano help the reader better understand the way our
thoughts and feelings affect one another.
I give this book my highest recommendation to anyone who is
interested in ancient traditional ways of healing, wishes to know
what is unique about women healers, and is intrigued by reading
stories about how our thoughts and feelings affect others.
THE WORLD IS AS YOU DREAM IT
by John Perkins
John Perkins' book, THE WORLD IS AS YOU DREAM IT is one of those
rare books that tells a riveting story at the same time as it
provides deep insights into what makes us who we are and the world
what it is. I was so riveted to this book that I couldn't put it
down for a second until I finished reading it.
The big idea in THE WORLD IS AS YOU DREAM IT is outlined by shamans
in Ecuador who describe to Perkins the difference between living one's
fantasies and living one's dream -- and how this difference has enormous
personal and global repercussions. Healing involves changing one's dream;
replacing a dream of illness with one of health. As one shaman tells
Perkins, "I don't heal. I simply help them change their dream."
Perkins has been bringing people to learn from native shamans for many
-- living true to a desire he had since childhood to see indigenous peoples
teach westerners their ways, and in so doing, change the course of history.
Shamans have a strong need to change things, and Perkins does a fabulous
of describing some of his experiences visiting native shamans in Ecuador
demonstrate their healing and psychonavigation skills. A doctor who was
of Perkins' group was certain she died after ingesting ayahuasca (also
as "vine of the soul", or "vine of death") -- and she was also certain that
a Shuar shaman brought her back to a healthy body by sucking the toxins
her and vomiting them nearby.
What impresses me most about THE WORLD IS AS YOU DREAM IT is the way
illuminates the big picture of what humans are doing on Earth at the same
time as he shares moving personal accounts of people who come to the Amazon
and Andes to receive healings and gain vision in their lives. We are all
interconnected, and dreaming this dream together... and we change this
by changing our perceptions. Dream change is an essential skill that
everyone concerned with the future of humans on Earth has a vested interest
in, and that we all can learn.
If you are ready to journey to a place where "what we dream, happens", this
is the book for you!
