Communicate With Past & Future Selves

"Suppose we were able to share meanings freely without a compulsive urge to impose our view or conform to those of others and without distortion and self-deception. Would this not constitute a real revolution in culture."
- David Bohm

Can you imagine what your life might be like today if you could talk to yourself in the past? Can you further imagine the possibility that your future self might be giving you some guidance at this very moment? What would a world feel like in which such communication through time was commonplace? These were some of the questions I explored in my pre-conference talk this past month at the SEED Language of Spirit conference, Listening to Future Selves, Reviewing Our Pasts. As I mentioned in my conference presentation, one key to accessing all aspects of ourselves is by returning to a state of experiencing a timeless sense of Nowhen... which is a transcendent meditative state of mind in which most of our preconceived labels and habitual ways of thinking do not apply. This way of being in the world without being overly obsessed with Ego and its attendant fears, and free from the usual eagerness to reject what we presume to be too different from ourselves provides us with an optimal perspective from which we can most fully realize an interconnected awareness of self and all that is.

The Language of Spirit dialogue was exceptional for being a deep conversation, initiated and moderated by original dialogue participant, Leroy Little Bear. Conference organizer Shawn Secatero helped bring together dialogue participants to delve into the topic of time travel this year, creating an opportunity for a sharing of ideas between indigenous scholars and elders, linguists and scientists from radically different walks of life and places in the world. The dialogue moderator, Leroy Little Bear, selected which person would have the next opportunity to speak, at which point that person would talk uninterrupted as long as that person felt inspired. A special rapport developed in this dialogue, which became evident as various ideas wove their way in and out of the dialogue, creating a deeply transformative conversation.

Physicist David Bohm's concept of dialogue as a way of communicating with no predefined purpose or agenda, other than exploring where a group of twenty or more people's conversation may go, is different than discussion or debate. There is careful attention paid to the process of thought in such dialogues, which are conducted along the lines of the David Bohm's quote at the top of this page. The main idea is that we stop defending our own ideas and start more fully listening to people saying things that we might previously have been blocked or felt insensitive to.

Deep listening is the key to good dialogue, and this is something we can do with ourselves and in every relationship in our lives. Finding a state of deep listening... of deep conversation... without imposing old preexisting views or conforming to others' views is a transformative state of consciousness. From such a place, it is possible to more fully appreciate and become aware of all aspects of oneself, including our past and future selves. It is also possible to move past a sense that it is always the other person who is wrong or prejudiced and not listening... so we can become alert and attentive to the way our minds sometimes move away from what we think may disturb us.

This month's specially featured RealityShifters item:

Reality Shifts
Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World
Reality Shifts book now available in ebook & print versions!

Read the most comprehensive book ever written on the subject of reality shifts that describes what reality shifts are, why they occur, and how they can be used to influence and change your life for the better. Discover how to make the most of reality shifts in your life, how to live lucidly in a shifting reality, how to shift reality for healing, and delve into the quantum physics of what's going on when reality shifts. Read the first twenty pages of Reality Shifts here.

"Modern science has now addressed the problem of consciousness. We each experience consciousness every day, in some of the myriad and fascinating ways described in REALITY SHIFTS. But no one yet quite understands why this is so. Speculations, theories and experiments from quantum science have now been entered into the debate which suggest that our world is far more mystical, complex, interactive and even humorous than the sterile, mechanistic dogma of classical scientific thought. Read, enjoy, be amazed, ponder REALITY SHIFTS"
-- Edgar Mitchell, Sc.D., Founder, Institute of Noetic Sciences & Apollo Astronaut

"In REALITY SHIFTS, Cynthia Larson helps restore a sense of majesty and wonder to our everyday world. If you think science has explained away the magic of existence, you need seriously to read this book."
--Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Reinventing Medicine, Healing Words, and many other books

"Ever wondered where that missing sock went when you last searched the clothes dryer? Thought about why those keys you so carefully tucked into your jacket pocket suddenly disappeared only to be found underneath the cushion of your favorite television sofa? If so then you have experienced what Cynthia Larson calls a Reality Shift. In her book of that title subtitled When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, she explains in clear and unambiguous language just what these reality shifts are, why they occur, and how they can be used to influence and change your life for the better. Larson even goes into how the latest ideas from quantum physics can help us understand these shifts and most importantly believe in them as part of our reality, not just our imagination. No, Martha, you are not going crazy, just witnessing the reality shift around you. I recommend this book for its clarity and for its message of hope. Readers will be encouraged to enjoy reality shifts both literally and in actuality-when they occur-and will be taught how to make them happen more often."
--Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., National Book Award-winning author

Leroy Little BearLeroy Little Bear
The Next 500 Years
Huffington Post
by Robert Koehler
26 August 2010
Last week I attended the 12th annual Language of Spirit Conference, which brought together Western scientists and scholars and Native North American and Australian scientists, philosophers and storytellers, not to argue, but to grope for commonality at the far reaches of their belief systems. The original dialogues, convened by Bohm and Leroy Little Bear (former director of Native Studies at Harvard) in Kalamazoo, Michigan, in 1992, came about because Little Bear, who was well-versed in the developments of quantum physics, realized that Western science had reached the end of linear thought and finally got it: The universe is a living, conscious, interconnected organism.

Does the Past Exist Yet? Evidence Suggests Your Past Isn't Set in Stone
Huffington Post
by Robert Lanza, MD
18 August 2010
Is it possible we live and die in a world of illusions? Physics tells us that objects exist in a suspended state until observed, when they collapse in to just one outcome. Paradoxically, whether events happened in the past may not be determined until sometime in your future -- and may even depend on actions that you haven't taken yet.

Optimistic Women Live Longer
BBC News
10 August 2010
The research on nearly 100,000 women, published in the journal Circulation, found pessimists had higher blood pressure and cholesterol. Even taking these risk factors into account, attitude alone altered risks. Optimistic women had a 9% lower risk of developing heart disease and a 14% lower risk of dying from any cause after more than eight years of follow-up.

Bridging Heaven & Earth
Listening to Future Selves, Reviewing Our Pasts
Presented at the 12th Annual International Language of Spirit Conference
Cynthia Sue Larson invites us to imagine how it feels to be influenced by the future, guided by our future selves... and how it feels when viewing past events through various lenses of perception. The concept of bi-causality, in which we influence both future and past events is considered from an experiential point of view. View the slides from Cynthia Sue Larsons presentation in Albuquerque, New Mexico on August 15, 2010.


(4) Your Reality Shift Stories

Seeing Future Newspaper Story on Front Page
Hollywood, California, USA

I had to take a trip by car, and was gone about a week. When I got back to town on August 31, I stopped at a drug store where inside by the front door they have a newspaper rack displaying different newspapers. On my way out of the store, I glanced at the front page of the newspaper on the top of the top rack. It was a big story, big headline, big photo. I didn't read anything other than the sub headline. It basically said TVs and computers are being combined into some kind of social networking and gaming platform and Apple intends to lead the way in this through some hand held device they've invented.

That evening I told somebody about the story. We talked about it for a few minutes. He hadn't seen the story, though he does subscribe to that paper... but not the Saturday edition. I told him then probably it was the previous Saturday's edition that I'd seen on the rack. It was unusual that an old issue would be on the top rack but it happens now and then. Any number of mundane reasons can explain why. In any case it wasn't important.

Three days later, I saw the newspaper in the kitchen on my friend's table. It has the exact front page, big headline, sub header, story, and photo I'd seen on August 31 at the drug store. But the date on this issue is Thurs Sep 2 2010. First, I asked my friend if he remembered us discussing a few days ago TVs/computers and a report about them in the newspaper. He confirmed he did remember, with details. Next I call the newspaper, and ask for the people who do the "front page". The man I got was authoritative about the Sep 2 front page. He said "definitely not" to my question of whether this article was run previously, like within the last seven days or so, because I saw it on a newspaper rack at the CVS store on August 31. He said the only part of the article that might have appeared on any date earlier than Thursday September 2, 2010 is the photo of Steve Jobs. And if that were the case it would clearly say "Archive" under the photo. He said obviously this is not an archive photo because it's showing Jobs "unveiling" on Wed September 1, the miniaturized and cheaper new Apple TV.

This newspaper incident doesn't fit with or feel at all like precognative experiences I've known... because I actually saw with my own regular eyes that newspaper front page in the store I've been in a dozen times before. This was as "everyday" an experience as it gets. I don't know what the heck happened! But I intend to stay open for the answer.

Note from Cynthia: I love the way you so thoroughly researched further information about your experience, both with people immediately involved that you know personally, and who work with the newspaper. Thanks to your diligence, it seems clear that you somehow observed a future issue of the newspaper before it was actually published. I know our human brains are capable of seeing a few things and filling in gaps, which is why memories can be rather suspect as most people's memories are a blend between what was actually observed and what our minds were doing on their own in addition to direct observation. For those of us who occasionally get "future memories," it's not at all clear which memories are from which time frame, for example.

Unexplained Memories
Island Pond, Vermont, USA

I have had some rather bizarre memories surface that feel as real as any other real memory that I can validate. The problem is, I don't have any way to validate these unexplained memories. See... they all seem centered around space ie: planets, comets, and things of that sort, or geology ie: earthquakes, volcanoes, etc. Now the first time I remember one of these memories happening was when I was in grade school. There was a big to-do about an eclipse that was supposed to only happen once every couple hundred or something years (although at the time I didn't KNOW it was such a rare occurrence). The problem is, I could distinctly remember having seen it more than once. I remember everyone around me being so excited, but I was positive I had already seen it before, so it really didn't hold much appeal to me. Everyone kept asking me why I wasn't excited, and I responded with, "It's no big deal. I've seen it before," because I was completely convinced I had. I remembered it like it had only happened a few years ago. but that is when a teacher had informed me that I was "mistaken" and I couldn't possibly have remembered it because the last time this particular eclipse happened was some couple hundred or so years ago.

Now at this point, I just agreed with the teacher thinking I must have just been thinking of some other more common eclipse, but then another incident sparked another latent unexplained memory. This one happened a few years later when I was in High school. It was when Haley's Comet made it's appearance. Like the Eclipse before, I remembered having seen it before. But anyone reading this knows it only comes around like once every 75 years or something like that. I can't remember the exact time frame, but it is enough that it was quite obvious at this point...something weird was going on with my memories. It was at this point I started getting concerned. To this day I still haven't been able to figure out where the memories are coming from, and why I keep having them.

I only write this now because just recently I have had another memory. This time it is of something that hasn't quite happened yet: the planets alignment. I can distinctly remember the planets having aligned before (which if you look up can only happen about every 200 or so years). I also remember the world being in a state of panic (much like today ie: the 2012 prophecies, Mayan calendar, etc), although back then they were quoting more of Nostradamus and other claimed prophets than the Mayans, but it was relatively the same kind of hysteria. I think what prompted the memory THIS time was when my room mate brought up the fact that the planets were supposed to come in to some semblance of alignment on 2012. (Now don't get me wrong... I am educated enough to know that the planets can never 100% align, but from what I have read on the subject they DO come pretty close every couple hundred years)

I am ALSO aware that my memories don't match up. like how could I remember the eclipse and the planets aligning, and ALSO remember Haley's comet when the events are separated by over 100 years? That is why I don't think it is a past life experience unless I'm remembering 2 DIFFERENT past life experiences...and honestly, if that concept IS real, the odds of remembering ONE is pretty rare, but TWO? I have a feeling the answer must be something on the lines of what you are talking about here. Some kind of reality shifting maybe? shifting from one time to another? Maybe the shift is so subtle that when I come back I don't remember it until something here triggers the memory? I am really not sure how these events work exactly....but could I be experiencing this shifting thing?

Note from Cynthia:Yes, you could be experiencing reality shifting with two different sets of memories. Noticing different memories is a primary component of reality shift experiences. Usually, people notice memories being different in the life they are living now, yet lots of people can recall past lifetimes, and it makes sense that if you are accessing such past life memories, why not recall something as noteworthy as Haley's Comet (probably called something else), planetary alignments, and solar eclipses. Such astrological events have captured the human imagination for thousands of years, after all!

The Spirit Guide
Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA

In 2005, I began going through a spiritual awakening, and as a result, my life and the way that I look at our physical reality and our existence has been forever changed. I began to experience many paranormal events and also began to read many books about spirituality and Metaphysics. I learned that we all have spirit guides who reside in the spirit world who guide us through our lives whether we are aware of their existence or believe in them or not. I began to communicate with my spirit guide through mental telepathy and automatic handwriting on a daily basis and received some valuable information from him as a result. However, what I really wanted was for my spirit guide to manifest onto our Earth Plane so that I could see him. I learned through reading books that unfortunately spirit guides do not manifest into physical form very often. However, upon much insistence on my part, my spirit guide finally agreed to manifest so that I could see him. He told me that when I saw him, he would be wearing a big hat and a big pair of sunglasses. The very next day, I was out taking a walk through the park when I noticed that a man was sitting at a nearby picnic table facing me. He was wearing a very big hat and a very big pair of sunglasses. When I saw him, it sent chills through my body but not in a scary way but rather in an other worldly way. Time seemed to stand still while I saw him. I kept on walking, still not sure whether it was just a coincidence or whether I had truly seen my spirit guide. I was later told that the man that I saw in the park was indeed my spirit guide.

I wanted another opportunity to see him again. So, the next time I communicated with my spirit guide, I asked him to say hello and to wave to me the next time he manifested. Shortly thereafter, I was at a festival in a local town with my fiance. We were sitting at a picnic table eating. There were a lot of people at the festival, and a band was playing music. While I was eating, a young man with a couple of his friends walked by our picnic table and looked straight into my eyes and mouthed the word "hello" and waved to me. Wondering if he was waving and saying hello to someone else instead of me, I turned around to see if anyone was standing or sitting behind me, but nobody was there. My fiance also turned around to see if anyone was standing or sitting behind us. When I turned back around to face this young man, again he looked straight into my eyes and mouthed the word "hello" and waved to me. As during the previous occasion in which I saw him, time seemed to stand still during those moments. What was interesting is that he had told me about his friends prior to his appearance at the festival. He had told me that his friends were born around the beginning of the 20th Century. When I saw them at the festival, their haircuts reminded me of those that I had seen in photos of my grandparents and their siblings back in the early 1900's Therefore, I knew that these young gentlemen weren't from our present time period. Furthermore, prior to this experience, I had seen my spirit guide in my dreams while sleeping, and this young man at the festival looked exactly like what I saw in my dreams. My spirit guide then walked away and stood for awhile about 100 feet or so from me. I then looked away for only a couple of seconds, and when I looked back in his direction, he and his friends were gone. As a result of my spiritual awakening and these experiences, I truly believe that we all have loving and caring spirit guides that help us through life.

I have never met my guide in a place in which we were one of one with each other so that we could talk other than one time when I was in bed with a fever. When I saw him when I was ill, it was totally unexpected, and it startled me. I was so tired that I could not think of questions to ask him. When I saw him in a crowd at a festival, it was totally unexpected too. For some reason, on the two occasions when I saw him, my mind froze, and I couldn't think, do, nor say anything. It was very strange. It's as if I'm in a trance or mesmerized or something.

Ever since I was a little girl, every now and then, I have smelt a particular scent of cologne. It happens when I'm alone. I love the smell of it. I believe it is my spirit guide. I would love for my spirit guide to manifest so that I could speak with him one on one to ask him questions. I have heard that it is very rare that they manifest at all however. I have heard that it is uncomfortable for them to manifest here, because they have to slow down their vibration a lot in order to be visible to us. Also, the negative energy of the Earth is not very comfortable for them. I have heard that they have to cleanse themselves energetically once they get to the other side after they have been here.

Unfortunately, I never heard my guide speak during the two times that I saw him manifested on the Earth Plane. He mouthed the word "hello" at the festival, but I did not actually hear him speak. One time, however, there was an instance in which I did not actually see him, but I felt his presence, and he said, "I love you." The voice sounded very high pitched and almost digital sounding. After this happened, I later read that if spirits of a higher vibration do speak outloud for us to hear them, because of their higher vibration, their voices often sound high pitched to our ears.

When I have had achey muscles, I have actually felt soothing warm energy on the effected area. This happened without my trying to do any healing on my own. I said in my mind that my legs ached, and I wished the aching would go away, and then right after that, I felt the warm energy. It felt so good and therapeutic. On one occasion, it felt like actual fingers were healing and massaging my back. The fingers felt less dense than our physical fingers, but nevertheless, I could feel someone's fingers on my back.

Sometimes I am given signs. If I'm wondering about something or need guidance, sometimes I am bombarded with signs on the TV, radio, in a book, on the internet, something someone said, etc. I've also used Automatic Handwriting to communicate with my guide, and I've used Hypnosis to visit him and ask him questions.

Note from Cynthia:Thanks so much for sending this beautiful story to me! I have heard of people being helped by people who were there when needed, and then gone as if into thin air shortly thereafter... and your story reminds me of that. I deeply appreciate your sharing your experiences meeting your spirit guide in real life. I agree with the books you read that such real life meetings are very rare, since I have not received many similar stories for submission to RealityShifters. The experiences people have shared with me of meeting their guides most typically involve meeting someone they realized later must have been an angel, and usually such encounters are one-time events.

Finger Lakes of Upstate New York
Pennsylvania, USA

When I was younger, I read a small box's inside cover, which had all the important things and events I did as a toddler. Now somehow it failed to include June 30, 1957, the day I first began to walk. Instead, it read that in 1955 I began to walk!

Later on, in August 1972, I went with all of my family to the Finger lakes in upstate New York. Now, many years later, neither my sister nor my Mom even remember that trip! Neither does any map show any Finger Lakes in New York! The Finger Lake incident happened on a Sunday in September 1980. Almost on every Sunday to that last one, I was driving to a bar in Washington Heights, New Jersey from Edison, New Jersey. Now I did not know any back roads to Route 1 North, where I had to travel to reach my home in Edison, New Jersey. I would arrive at this bar at 10:00 am every Sunday for four years -- since 1976! But this day would be different! I would always limit myself to a few drinks, so I could drive home safely. When I entered the portal, my car recorded a "thump" on the road. I immediately became more alert and sober, and looked into my rear view mirror and saw green aliens and "smoke." The difference in reality would show itself on Route 95 the following day!

On the following day, while commuting on my normal trip to my job along the New Jersey turnpike, I noticed a very strange appearance of the regular electrical towers that I had been seeing for the last four years. They had changed in 24 hours! One or two might be replaced, but not all of them! I also saw a very different "3rd Avenue Station" at Gunhill Road in the Bronx -- since closed in 2003 -- from the one I knew and saw in February 1962! A few changes like the one I saw and have told you about leads me to believe that a double of me took my place and I took his, for reasons unknown. I found out about the different 3rd Avenue El Station on the internet of Old New York! I found out that the family did not go to the Finger lakes in August 1972 quite recently. The Finger lakes are where they should be, it was a few more of these lake near the New Jersey border that don't exist anymore!

All this because on September 9, 1980 I entered a time-space portal that put me nearer to route 1 north when I should have been heading to East Brunswick and South River -- thanks to "little" green aliens -- believe it or not. This is not the reality I was born in!

Note from Cynthia:That's such an amazing experience! I have heard of and personally witnessed geographic changes... some people have noted, for example, a large old tree that has always been there... sometimes not being there. Similarly, mountains are sometimes there... and sometimes not there. Thinking of yourself as having a double who is in the world you knew is one way of framing the experience... and another might be that our consciousness resides in our minds, allowing us to sometimes move from one reality to another, walking between world as we might jump from rock to rock while crossing a stream.


(5) Reality Shifting Q and A / Mail Bag

Dear Cynthia,
I came across your website yesterday, and joined your Ezine. I am excited to read more about what your group does. I don't know if you can answer this, but I have been online a lot lately, attempting to consult with other energy healers to ask this question, as I am uncertain as to the correct path to take. Many of us are concerned with the Gulf Oil spill, and mostly I have been worried about the marine life that is now suffering the ill effects of all that oil in their living environment. I have been doing distance energy healing for individuals for over 10 years, but am new to doing "mass" healings -- doing energy healing for more than one person at a time. I was just introduced to the idea, by Masuo Enmoto, the Japanese man who has showed that water takes on the properties of any ideas it is exposed to, such as if you write "love and gratitude" on a glass of water, it creates a beautiful crystal if frozen at the right temperature. If you write "You fool" on the glass, no crystals form. The idea he introduced me to is that all water is connected, so if you send healing energy into your glass of water, all the earth's water benefits, and you can heal water energetically worldwide. So whether you extrapolate this idea out, and think of water (in the Gulf, for instance), or you think about sending energy healing to a large group of people, animals, etc. -- do you believe one person sending healing is actually capable of raising sufficient energy to make a difference? My experience has been limited to only one soul at a time, not large groups. The other trouble I experience is that, is it OK to pray for the oil to disappear? Or send energy healing to that end? Because, what if, the oil disappears, and people like us manage to help those poor animals in the ocean, so they don't have to suffer . . . but then the world learns the message, "It's OK to continue to drill in the ocean" -- and the important lesson this oil spill was meant to teach us, gets lost. If you understand my dilemma, and have the time and the energy to respond to me, I would sure appreciate it. I am looking for council and my concern is deep. Thank you sincerely, and I am looking forward to receiving your ezine.

Dearest Michele,
Thanks so much for writing to me about how best to focus energies regarding the matter of the Gulf Oil spill. This is such a timely and interesting question! My advice on this matter is to take into consideration some of the prayer studies which have been conducted by the Spindrift Research Organization
I wrote an article about this topic for Planet Lightworker that you can read online here:
Based on the finding that the most effective prayer tends to be that which is general and not too specific... in other words, a kind of meditation and/or prayer that wishes for the best for all concerned related to the Gulf Oil Spill. It's both easier than attempting to rationally figure out what kind of intentions will be best, and proven in plant growth studies to be more effective... and you might also find this an good way to take the leap into assisting groups of organisms.
Wishing you all the best,
lots of love,

Choosing Easy World

Choosing Easy World:
A Guide to Opting Out of Struggle and Strife and Living in the Amazing Realm Where Everything is Easy

by Julia Rogers Hamrick
A Good Life Can Be SO Easy!

Can you envision a world in which you didn't need to worry, didn't need to struggle, and could just relax as you allow events to unfold, trusting that everything is now working out exactly as you'd most desire? Author Julia Rogers Hamrick suggests that not only does such an Easy World exist, it's actually the one we knew before we immersed ourselves so fully in a world of trouble and difficulty. This lovely book invites us to imagine how we can literally step into an easier way of life that feels like an entirely different world... because it is an entirely different world. We can do this by learning how to get to Easy World and stay in Easy World, despite all manner of thoughts and things that may entice us to slip back into difficult world. CHOOSING EASY WORLD is a book you can read quickly, and yet the idea behind it has a lasting resonance that invites you to see how nothing ever needs to be as complicated as we sometimes make it. There is a kind of magic that happens when we stop limiting our view of what is and isn't possible, what is and isn't practical, and what we can and can't have. The key concept here is that Easy World is our natural state... our first awareness.... and since we have already experienced Easy World, where everything is easy, we have the incentive to return to living harmoniously that way again. The challenge we face is principally to let go of beliefs based in Ego that we are not valuable, that we are not deserving, that we are not as good as we need to be. There is a kind of suffering inherent in these beliefs that lead some people into moving away from Spirit and into fear and resistance. I especially love chapter ten, which is full of Questions and Answers that get right to the heart of many of the kinds of misgivings people have when choosing to go with the flow rather than struggling each step of the way. Questions about laziness, worthiness, resistance and bad things happening are answered from the point of view of Easy World, full of love and appreciation for who you really are and what wonderful things are possible that you may not have ever before imagined. Our journey into Easy World begins as simply as saying out loud, "I choose to live in Easy World, where everything is easy." Say this aloud and notice how you feel immediately afterward... and if you find (as many do) a sense of optimistic joyfulness and faith that such a thing could be possible, this book is for you!
