How Good Can it Get?
Cynthia Sue Larson
Cynthia Sue Larson
Opening to Oneness

"You are sitting here with us,
but you are also out walking in a field at dawn.
You are yourself the animal we hunt
when you come with us on the hunt.

You are in your body
like a plant is solid in the ground,
yet you are wind.

You are the diver's clothes
lying empty on the beach.
You are the fish.
In the ocean are many bright strands
and many dark strands like veins that are seen
when a wing is lifted up.
Your hidden self is blood in those,
those veins that are lute strings
that make ocean music,
not the sad edge of surf,
but the sound of no shore."
― Rumi

One of the things I love best about spending time in nature is a feeling I often get during such times of being at one with everything around me in a natural setting. I feel a blissful sense of reverie while resting by the woods, at a beach, or in a garden. Just as I notice a sense of expansion when I’m feeling happy and feeling great love, I often feel an accompanying sense of expansion when I am surrounded by nature. At such times I have felt that I was not just my physical body, but that I was also at one with the sun, the wind, the trees, and everything around me. When I feel like I am part of nature, I feel more like myself, without any pressure to live up to expectations, or to be or do anything in particular.

One Mind
This topic of the experience of oneness has fascinated me this month, as I savored Dr. Larry Dossey's wonderful new book, ONE MIND: How Our Individual Mind is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why it Matters. Dr. Dossey describes a number of experiences involving a sense of connection with wild animals, which I find completely natural when contemplating oneness and the idea of One Mind. There is something truly special about nature, and in our connection to it, as so much of those connections are beyond the human realm of spoken and written words, and are based in pure direct experience.

The concept of One Mind is something we can appreciate in terms of recognizing that there are times when we can communicate with loved ones and pets across great distances without using telephones or the internet. Sometimes we move and act in synchronization with loved ones as if we have some kind of connection with them. In ancient cultures and civilizations, this concept of interconnectedness across space and time was relied upon when nomadic tribes met at new locations in times of inclement weather or adverse environmental conditions. With an expectation that a person could recognize someone was sending an important telepathic message when smoke signals were rising above forest trees, for example, a message could be received, understood, and acted upon. While we might presume modern technologies do a better job at conveying critical information, the simple truth is that our built-in connection to One Mind is far more comprehensive than just human-to-human communication, and gifts us with knowledge that sometimes has the power to save and transform our lives.

Another aspect of the One Mind experience I find particularly valuable is the way it provides us with access to a state of mind in which we are able to disengage from our ordinary sense of identity and consciousness, and re-engage in a state of all-possibility. Through meditation, lucid dreaming, and near death experiences, people frequently report a sense of being aware of the interconnectedness of all things, and of ways they can live their lives free from fear and in better accordance with their gifts and ability to be of service. There can often be a spiritual sense of unity with all that is at such times, and a sense of more fully appreciating events that otherwise might seem random or disconnected.

And speaking of being in service, I'm coming to Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington this next month to give talks and offer intuitive consultations at two book stores: the New Renaissance Bookshop of Portland, and the Seattle East West Bookshop. I'd love to see you at one or both of these events to talk about you and your unique gifts and abilities!

Lilou Mace & Cynthia: How to Reality & Time Shift
I so enjoyed getting to meet Lilou Mace when she brought her Juicy Living Tour all the way from France to the San Francisco bay area! Her 31 minute "How to Reality and Time Shift?" interview with me is now posted online at YouTube, so you can join us for a lovely conversation about metaphysical topics in the garden, where we are joined by our friendly canine companion! We discuss topics including the subjects of: auras, energy fields, reality shifts, time shifts, and much more.

Quantum Jumping & Manifesting with Law of Attraction
The essential difference between manifestation and LOA versus reality shifting and quantum jumping is what you identify with as being who you are. When you identify with being your physical self in a given reality, you are in the mindset for manifesting and working with LOA--in which you become aware of your energetic vibrations and emotional frequencies, and expect all that matches those vibrations to come to you. When you identify with being consciousness, you are in the mindset for reality shifting and quantum jumping in which you--as consciousness--are the traveler between parallel universes of possibility. This is a video summary of a blog post at:


(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Healed Burns
Florida, USA

The latter part of last month, I took garlic bread with cheese out of the oven and burned the ends of the three last fingers of my right hand. It hurt real bad. I went forth and carefully attended to making dinner and setting the dinning room table for all of us to eat. I had to wake up very early to get Richard off to the airport. Returning back home and taking to bed again. I woke up happy, and feeling good. Showering is where I noticed the burns had completely healed. I walked downstairs and showed my mother, who thought this was great and commented that I always was a fast healer. After a couple weeks or more had passed, again in the shower I noticed the burn had returned just on my pinky finger (baby finger). It was all bubbled up at the end, which surprised me. This was after I'd had a lucid dream, and my body and mind felt "plugged in" as my energy was so high. I showed my mom, and she thought it was strange. I showed Richard later that day and he did not know what to make of it. I thought to myself that my finger is healed and it will just be renewed and healed. I had an underlying fear that other burns might come back, too, as my body felt like it was on fire. I quickly tossed these thoughts away, knowing I'm good, healthy and well. The "fire" feeling subsided and quickly left as I realized this fire energy was not going to manifest my old wounds of history. The finger burn washed away, with only an trace outline of a heart shape left for the day. Then all was like new again, without any trace of burns. Any ideas about why this type of reality shift would possible occur?

Note from Cynthia: I am writing a new book this year, called Quantum Jumps: An Extraordinary New Science of Happiness and Prosperity that delves into the science of what's really happening when we shift reality. From a perspective of making a quantum jump from one reality to another parallel world, it's our consciousness that is making the jump from one universe to another. Through our consciousness we sometimes go back and forth between parallel universes, before settling into one that best suits our intentions and energy levels. A jump from one reality to another requires attaining a meditative detached state of awareness, and in order to reach and stay in a reality we best enjoy, it's helpful to keep our intention and energy levels at that sufficiently high level. An example of how these intentions, energy levels and beliefs manifest in terms of reality selection can be seen in scientific evidence from longitudinal studies of people with different beliefs about a group of people such as the elderly, for example. Prejudices about a group of people we don't (yet) belong to are particularly interesting, as people subsequently move into that group as they age, making these kinds of studies truly fascinating. It turns out that scientific studies are showing that we become what we believe. People who believe, for example, that elderly people are mentally and physically slow, less competent, and prone to illness and disease... tend to suffer from exactly what they expect to suffer from, whereas those who view the elderly as wise, healthy, strong, resilient, flexible, respected, powerful, and courageous tend to become exactly that. Any areas where we experience vacillation is an indicator to us, therefore, of beliefs we can change in ourselves, and provides us with a kind of compass to improving the overall positive trajectory of our lives. Reality shifts for the most part occur "Be Cause," which is to say that the whole point is to get us to become aware of how we are able to make leaps from sick to healthy... and sometimes back to sick again. We are living in a truly amazing time in history when the placebo effect is becoming twice as powerful as it was just a few decades ago, as people increasingly become aware that healing is a natural process, and we can make a leap to being well. Keeping your sense of identity attuned with the highest level of your consciousness--with what you might call your spirit, high self, or soul--can result in the most consistently positive reality shifts.


Movie Started Over Again
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Hi Cynthia, I had a really weird one today - I went to the theater to see "The Family," which by the way is quite entertaining mainly due to a great cast, and here's what happened. About 15 min. into the movie it suddenly without even a split second's hesitation started playing the opening scene again repeating the entire first 15 minutes and continued through to the end of the movie. At first I was startled thinking there had been some problem in the projection booth, so I looked around at the rest of the audience to see if other people showed any reaction. Nobody else appeared to have noticed! When the movie ended and everyone was exiting, I paid close attention the conversations around me and heard not one comment about it as if I were the only one who witnessed it. It truly is a wondrous and mysterious universe.

Note from Cynthia: This reality shift in which apparently you're the only one who noticed the movie skip back to the beginning and start all over again is truly amazing! While I've not had anything quite like that happen to me with a movie, I have noticed sometimes when a radio station plays a song "for the first time ever" I'm certain I've heard it before, and can sing along... so obviously it is not being played for the first time ever. And I have had a couple of experiences of A Glitch in the Matrix in which a sequence of events happens all over again a few minutes later. Thanks so much for sharing!


(5) Questions and Answers

Hi, Cynthia
I know I have untapped abilities. For instance, when I was twelve in 1979, I dreamt of three things happening all in the same dream in one instance, even though in real life they happened separately. I was standing in street in New York. A space shuttle flew by and broke up,and the World Trade Centers fell. I had never seen the World Trade Center before except in TV and movies. The shuttle split into two shuttles and one broke up, and one exploded and then the World Trade Center buildings collapsed. As you know these three events actually too place years after my dream. I never told any one about this except a couple of friends who I believe just passed it off. But when I told my sister she told me that I had a psychic gift. But I also read where you say that we sometime are, I believe you said, experiencing different things that have happened in the past or future. Can you explain that a little more?
-- Lafayette

Dear Lafayette,
According to the Holographic Multiverse interpretation of quantum physics, all events through time in any given reality can be accessed given the right state of consciousness. Our human experience of time moving at a seemingly steady rate is just one way of viewing events, and sometimes in special states of consciousness (such as lucid dreams, meditation, and near death experiences) we gain a sense of many coexisting possible realities in parallel with one another... and in the future and past.
-- Cynthia

One Mind

One Mind: How Our Individual Mind is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why it Matters
by Larry Dossey
Exploring Holistic Consciousness

Dr. Larry Dossey's new book, ONE MIND, presents us with a concept of unified consciousness on a level beyond anything we can comfortably label, categorize, or fully define. Dossey brilliantly tackles such a big topic from a number of different perspectives, so much like the parable of the blind men and the elephant, readers can glean fresh insights as to the entirety of ONE MIND a little at a time. I appreciate inclusion in the Introduction to ONE MIND of a short list of what we'd expect to witness if such a thing as ONE MIND exists. Dossey explains we would expect people could share thoughts and feelings at a distance with other people and with pets, and that some people could demonstrate detailed knowledge known by someone who has died. We'd expect to witness coordinated movements of animals, people finding lost objects, and people experiencing a sense of direct contact with a transcendent domain. As it turns out, all these things actually do happen, as Dossey further describes in an abundance of fascinating case histories and real life examples. What I love best about ONE MIND is the sense of joyful peace I feel in my mind and heart while reading it, as a sense of being at one with ONE MIND washes over me. This book is one best savored as one would enjoy a fine gourmet meal, but rather than delighting in visual presentation, fragrance, texture, taste and sound--relishing each new facet of oneness described. I love all of Dr. Dossey's books, and this one is no exception, even though it differs from many of his previous works by virtue of tackling a subject that cannot be concretely contained. There is a quintessential mystery in the very topic of ONE MIND that defies precise definition or containment within any human labels. ONE MIND will be treasured by those who embrace holistic experience, and who have a sense of reverence for what may ever be just beyond human comprehension to fully grasp. Readers possessing reverence for nature's wonders will best appreciate the call to awakening ONE MIND represents. Highly recommended!
