Create Your Best Life!
Heal Relationships with Parallel Realities

Cynthia & StorytellersCynthia Sue Larson with one of artist Sheryl Cotleur's Storytellers at the 21st International Conference on Shamanism & Alternative Healing

Have you ever experienced a situation in which you disagreed with someone about what had just happened -- to the point that both of you were 100% totally convinced that two very different things had transpired? When I posed this question to an audience of about 75 people this month at the Shamanism & Alternative Modes of Healing conference in San Rafael, all but a few raised their hands. A good 95% had encountered this phenomenon, and were fascinated to learn more about what is going on when "shifts happen."

I asked this question while presenting the paper I co-authored with anthropologist Anne Menne called When Worlds Collide: How Parallel Realities Can Heal Interpersonal Relationships, utilizing a power point slide presentation to highlight key points from our paper. Anne and I also included a skit to illustrate how it feels when two people encounter parallel realities, and how to work through five steps to resolution for such a situation. Typically, one person is more aware that something strange is happening, and that person can then take the lead in helping others understand what is going on.

After our presentation, many people told me in confidence about situations they'd encountered which they now understood to have been parallel world experiences. Some relationships survived the stress of such encounters, and others did not. The people who spoke to me were genuinely moved to understand the parallel worlds phenomenon so clearly, and were grateful to have pointers for working through such situations more gracefully in the future.

The parallel worlds experience is typically one that occurs without warning, so it helps tremendously when all parties maintain open minds and have a sense of the possibility of experiencing parallel universes. One of the best ways I know to prepare for the parallel worlds experience is to take your loved ones to see the excellent film, What the Bleep Do We Know?!, if you haven't already done so!

lots of love,

      "Wow! Wow! Wow! I am rarely at a loss for words, but Wow! was constantly pouring forth from me throughout my entire consultation with Cynthia Sue Larson. I have enjoyed many readings throughout the years, some good and some silly. Cynthia did more than simply read me though ... she CONSULTED and that puts her into a brand new category of reassuring love. "There is nothing so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength." In the kindest voice, using the softest energy, Cynthia is a real powerhouse of Radiant Energy. She discussed ideas and thoughtforms that others never pick up on, she understood energies that others can't see, and discussed all of them logically, rationally, and professionally. I am soooo impressed! I received IMMEDIATE results and am still on a happy-feeling wave of Feel Good Love. Thank you, Cynthia, for your invaluable service to others! I am still appreciating all of my Wows!"

How Parallel Realities Can Heal Personal Relationships

21st Annual International Conference on Shamanism and Alternative Modes of Healing
4 - 6 September 2004
by Cynthia Sue Larson & Anne Menne
While interpersonal relationships have long been noted for providing people with glimpses into their 'shadow' sides, awareness and observation of parallel realities can provide additional valuable insights into interpersonal dynamics. Since most people experience such parallel realities without warning, they are most beneficial for those who are already aware of the possibility that parallel realities may be encountered, and who are prepared to help others understand their tremendous value as they follow the five steps of healing interpersonal relationships with parallel realities. Counselors, life coaches, and therapists can all benefit from utilizing this knowledge in their work.

(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Raven Skydancer
Oakhurst, California

I live in the woods, near Yosemite National Park, where we have an abundance of wild life. Bears, mountain lions, deer, bobcats, plenty of rattlesnakes and little critters of all kinds. I had a group of ground squirrels living near my home that started to become a nuisance. These ground squirrels are not unlike tree squirrels, except they burrow into the ground and make hundreds of pesky little holes about 4 inches in diameter. Well, I am ashamed to say that I took my shotgun and started killing them. I had to quit doing that, though, because it bothered my conscience too much. I thought about asking High Self to make them go away, but deep down I knew the critters had more right to be here than I did.. I was the interloper, not them. My house was built right where they wanted to dig... so they dug.

Then it dawned on me to simply go out into the middle of Squirrel Town, introduce myself properly to all the little squirrels and simply explain that their digging was interfering with my life. "I can't move my house, so I would like for you all to move out on the side of a hill not too far away. 50 yards maybe." I walked out to the hill, while telling all the little squirrels what a wonderful new place this would be for them to burrow into.

What can I say? In two days the squirrels, every one of them, left the vicinity of my house and moved out there to the side of the hill that is now literally full of holes.

I told this story to a lady I knew to be quite metaphysical and spiritual, like myself. She said she did much the same thing in a rental place she had moved into that was infested with cockroaches. She said the next morning all the cockroaches were gone. She simply asked them to leave and they did.

Raven Skydancer
Oakhurst, California

Once I was very sick with a prolonged illness. I was extremely tired and weak. I live in a remote area where I get my water from my own 600 foot water well. On this particular day, my well stopped pumping water. Oh... what a bad feeling that was! I did all the button pushing, breaker checking, and searching for loose connections that I knew how to use, but the well still wouldn't start. This meant I would have had to call my Service Man, and then it might have been three days before he could get here, search for the problem, and fix it. The cause of the problem could have been any number of things, including a burned-out pump. If the problem was caused by the pump, it would take a week or more to fix. That would be a long time without water for my wife and I.

So, I was sick and emotionally depressed. I laid down on the ground just to keep from falling down. As I lay there, I spoke with my High Self, saying something like, "Father, I am too sick to handle this problem, I don't know what to do." When I'm this sick I don't think very well... I then said, "Father, I have to turn this over to you, I am totally within your arms. Hold me, Help me."

As I lay there for a few minutes, my strength came back to me. I got up, went back over to the control box, with a half dozen buttons to push, and I pushed the first button. This time, the pump came on, and it ran steady for a couple more weeks. When I finally felt like calling the well man, he decided to pull the pump. When he brought it to the surface, the wires were bare, all chewed up from my pump banging around in the hole, since the dampener had broken (the dampener keeps the pump from doing all that banging around). The well man looked at me with those bare wires in his hand, and said he had no idea what kept that pump running as long as it did. Fortunately, the pump was OK, it just needed a new dampener and some wire.

Later I read something about an experiment at Princeton University, "1987, physicist Robert G. Jahn and clinical psychologist Brenda J. Dunne, both at Princeton University, announced that after a decade of rigorous experimentation by their Princeton Engineering Anomolies Research Laboratory, they had accumulated unequivocal evidence that the mind can psychically interact with physical reality. More specifically, Jahn and Dunne found that through mental concentration alone, human beings are able to affect the way certan kinds of machines operate." One kind of a machine I know for certain that this works on, is a "Deep Well Water Pump." I suggest that Science and Metaphysics are coming together on many fronts.

Kidderminster, Worcestershire, UK

My name is Dean and I'm from a town in the UK called Kidderminster, famous for carpets and Sir Rowland Hill, inventor of the postage stamp. Impressive, eh? Well, not much happens around here ;-)

I'm 31 and my passion in life is consciousness expansion and energy manipulation. I've always loved the Everett-Wheeler-Graham (EWG) theory of multiple universes, and reality shifting sits perfectly in line with that model in my mind. I always think of living in multiple universes as just stepping into the universe next door.

I had a lovely reality shift today as I was doing my shopping. My local Sainsbury's have discontinued Camargue Red rice, much to my chagrin, as it's tasty gorgeous. Anyway, I was strolling down the rice section thinking, "They'll still not have any," when I decided to shift my thinking and see what happened. I kid you not, but right in front of me was a shelf full of two different kinds of Camargue rice. Lovely stuff :-)

(5) Reality Shifters Q & A

Q: This happens all the time with my husband (a situation in which we disagree about what had just happened -- to the point that both of us are 100% totally convinced that two completely different things have just happened). He believes that his memory is almost perfect so it can be very frustrating at times. Before I became so aware of shifting timelines/realities, I thought that these differing accounts of past events had to do with each person's particular perspective of reality- that we each interpret/see events differently. But too many of these memories, especially recent memories, are too different to be explained away like this. The frustration for me comes in when one person is open to the idea of shifting realities and the other isn't. Does anyone have any advice on how to handle this situation so that arguements don't develop? Just ignore the differences? Agree with the other person's account?

- Jen

A: There are few things more frustrating than encountering a situation in which the person you are talking with does not acknowledge the possibility that very different memories can both be correct. People often have a sense of their recollection being perfect, or at least very good... and it is almost always easier to believe that any difference of opinion is clearly due to the other person's faulty recollection. Rarely does it occur to people that they may have encountered a reality shift in which there are two (or more) different realities being experienced. There is a five-step process I recommend you follow any time you are the one who notices that parallel realities may have been encountered, and I share these steps in the paper called "When Worlds Collide: How Parallel Realities Can Heal Interpersonal Relationships," I recently co-authored with anthropologist Anne Menne.

When you recognize that it's quite possible that you have encountered parallel realities, and the person you are talking with is not grasping this idea, the first step is being consciously aware that you may be encountering parallel worlds. The next step is to find common ground... and to do this, I recommend letting the other person know that you'd like to reframe the discussion and step back from it to view things from a different perspective that allows both of you to be right. Taking this conversational tack provides an opportunity to share common ground, which hopefully will be more appealing than continuing on with an argument about who remembers things correctly. Once you've established this common sense of shared intention, you may then take turns to say what you experienced, and how you felt. When it's your turn to talk, use "I" statements that describe how you feel... and when it's your turn to listen, don't interrupt. Finally, consider that this entire situation may have presented you both with something you can learn... some kind of deeper understanding that could only have become known by experiencing this reality shift into experiencing parallel worlds.

I hope this helps for the next time you encounter such a situation!

Yoga of Time Travel

The Yoga of Time Travel

by Fred Alan Wolf

The Best Time Travel Book Ever!

You can't find a more fascinating and delightful book about the nature of time and reality than Fred Alan Wolf's YOGA OF TIME TRAVEL! Chapter One alone is more than worth the price of the book, as it describes how a yoga adept can overcome the five barriers to reaching the state of egoless mind... which is what Wolf explains one needs to do in order to travel through time without a time travel device. THE YOGA OF TIME TRAVEL shares a compelling vision of the nature of time travel by combining essential elements from yoga and physics with extraordinary clarity. Wolf provides readers with the perfect blend of warmth, wit, and scientific detail for readers to grasp such physical concepts as possibility waves, probability waves and qubits. THE YOGA OF TIME TRAVEL is so provocative that you'll want to read it more than once to comprehend the wonderful world of time travel! I was delighted to see how Wolf explains how the so-called time travel paradoxes such as the "creativity paradox" and the "grandfather paradox" can be completely resolved when considered in the context of parallel universes. Wolf explains how time travel is no longer relegated to science fiction, but is instead required by current models of the physical world, which moves the burden of proof from defending the possibility of time travel to proving there is any kind of law forbidding it. THE YOGA OF TIME TRAVEL is surely destined to become a classic, as it covers a topic that has never before been addressed with such insight and elegance. I give this book my highest recommendation!
