RealityShifters News - September
Against All Odds
"Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating an
field is approximately 3,720 to 1!"
"Never tell me the odds!"
- Han Solo, The Empire Strikes Back
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
She laughed and said, "Just today! This is the only one we've EVER
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...
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
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!
MISSING KEYS APPEAR
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.
FINDING THE PERFECT CAR
Santa Ana, CA
I started nosing around your site, read a couple of your articles, and
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
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..?

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?"
