RealityShifters News - September 2000

Against All Odds

I just love the way reality shifts help me rediscover the wonder of seeing wishes come true, no matter how improbable they might seem. I get goosebumps of excitement and reverence when I notice I'm living a dream-come-true, and I am seeing what has been hoped and prayed for arriving right before my eyes -- against all odds.

Earlier this summer, I found a beautiful guitar at a very good price in a thrift shop, and almost walked away from it. I'd made a wish many years ago for a very good steel-string guitar, and when I found one sitting in front of me at a very affordable price, my first thought was, "What a great guitar for somebody." It took me a few minutes to grasp the concept that "Hey! I'm somebody!", at which point I picked up the guitar, bought it, and brought it home with me.

A few weeks later, my daughter mentioned she wanted to have her very own violin. When I next visited my parents, they generously offered to buy one for her one as a gift. My father requested half-jokingly, "If you happen to find one at the thrift shop with a deal like you got for your guitar, be sure to pick it up." I smiled and agreed, while thinking to myself, "The odds are heavily stacked against that".

You can imagine my surprise when less than a week later, I happened to stop by a thrift shop before picking my daughters up after school, and heard the "plink" of someone plucking a string. I spun around and saw the saleslady playing the string on a cheap guitar.... next to a violin case on the floor! I quickly walked over to pick up the violin, and asked when it had arrived.

"It just came in an hour ago", she replied, "and I just started unpacking these instruments."

"How often do violins come into the shop?", I asked her, as I opened the violin case and discovered that inside lay a fine-looking child's size violin.

She laughed and said, "Just today! This is the only one we've EVER received".

What makes this story even more amazing is that this violin sounds great (a rare and desirable quality in a violin), is the exact reddish color my daughter wanted (also rare), is the 7/8 size that my daughter best fits (which is a difficult or impossible size to purchase in most stores here)... and arrived exactly when I just happened to walk into the store. I only visit the shop a few times a month, so the odds that I would be there exactly as the violin arrived are, well... astronomical!

The best part of this story was presenting it to my daughter, and being able to see the love and joy on her face when she opened her violin case to hold the violin of her dreams. She loves to practice playing on it, and cradles it in her arms before she puts it away. It feels good to know that she's got exactly what she needs, when she needs it... never mind the odds.

(1) Your Reality Shift Stories
Thanks so much to Tsipora and Strawberry for sharing reality shift experiences with us this month... and thanks to a "non-believer" who sent me a most interesting story as well. All of these stories refresh my sense of awe and wonder at the ways our universe interactively responds to our thoughts and feelings!

Toronto, Canada

I've been recieving your reality shifters newsletter and I must say, have been finding the stories and tips to be a great benefit to me and those around me. I want to tell you about an incident in a hotel room outside of Boston. Keys had "gone missing". My mom was about to get REALLY mad. I stopped, remembering the lessons I learned from you and reality shifts. I relaxed, put love in my heart....the keys were underneath a newspaper... but I looked there... it seemed they magically re-appeared. I smiled to myself.... remembering you. Thank you so much.

Santa Ana, CA

I started nosing around your site, read a couple of your articles, and
found this:
1. Pay Attention
The world seems full of whatever we focus our attention on.
When you're thinking of buying a new car, you see the kind
of car you're thinking of almost everywhere you go.
Be sure to start looking for evidence that indicates your
wishes and prayers are being answered.
And you know what? I must say maybe it's true! Three years ago I was driving a 73 Dodge Charger that no matter where I parked it, someone hit it. It got so bad that my neighbors called it 'the piata'. I was so ashamed to park and get out of the car at school (I was trying to get my degree), that I would look around to be sure no one was looking. (lol!) Well, my social security disability was approved, and I found I was able to get another car.

I decided I wanted a Honda 4-door with heater, air, electric doors and seat and a big trunk. I had $2000, and knew I would not be able to find what I wanted -- although I looked and looked. My credit union offered to loan me another $2000, but I knew I still wouldn't be able to find 'the' car for that without having more for the tax and tags and extra's. I looked and looked some more. But all I found were junk cars.

Finally, at about 8 PM one night, I wasn't even looking for the car, but just rode out -- trying to find where I had seen a specific car lot, so I could try it the next day. I didn't find it, so I turned into a Jeep Dealer to turn around (knowing a new dealer would not have anything I could afford). The salesman flagged me down, and I told him "Yes, I am looking for a car, but I want a Honda", and described what I was looking for. He told me to park and follow him.

In the back lot he had a grey 1990 Mercury Topaz, and it had "4dr, heater, air, electric doors and seat and a big trunk", and most amazingly of all was that the body style looked like a Honda! The car seemed to be the car of my dreams! The price on the window was $4800. I told him it was too much. I said I could only pay $4000 out the door. They offered to finance and I told them "No", that I had financing and was not going over the $4000 I had available to me. After about 45 minutes, the manager came in and brought the cost down to $3300, so after tax and license the total out the door of the car was exactly $4000! I drove the car home! All the way home I kept saying "I bought a car!" "I bought a car!"

I wasn't seeing my car everywhere I went, but it was sitting there on that back lot, all covered in dust, just waiting for me to take that ride late at night and accidentally turn in and find it.... Now if I could only find my lost doorbell.... ~(';')~ Maybe it's not sleepwalking after all..?


Cool site...but I don't really believe them. Sorry and no offense. But one thing... my only 2 Pokemon cards suddenly disappeared. Weird. Then you e-mailed me. Very weird. Ah well.

(3) New Reality Shifts Articles

Here are some of the new reality shift articles I've written since last month. I hope you'll find something useful and enjoyable:

Recognizing Gifts
Gifts can arrive any time, anywhere, and they often don't look anything like we thought they would. My favorite way to recognize the gifts I've asked for is to stay open to receiving them at every moment in my day, and to ask myself, "What kind of gift is this?"
