Who Moved My Keys
by Cynthia Sue Larson

Have you ever lost a sock in the dryer and wondered, "What is the meaning behind this reality shift?" Perhaps you've noticed that your keys, socks, wallets, jewelry or coat moved about or transformed itself for no obvious reason. No other person or thing could have caused this surprising appearance, disappearance, transformation or transportation, and you can think of no reason for why such an odd thing would happen.

A perceptive woman recently posted the question on the discussion board, "I know it probably means pay attention - but to what?"

Most of us have heard about or experienced spontaneous healings and synchronicities that happen when people love and care about each other. Some of us have witnessed how poltergeist and after-death-communication shifts occur when dead peoples' energies remain active in our physical world. But to what can we attribute those times when both socks don't come out of the dryer, or our keys or necklace are missing? These kinds of things seem chaotic and random -- more the works of a trickster than the work of angels, our love for one another, or the deceased getting our attention. Whereas "meaningful" reality shifts such as spontaneous healings, wishes-come-true, synchronicities, poltergeist activity, and after-death-communication feel imbued with intrinsic significance, what are we to make of the more "mundane" shifts in reality that occur around us every day?

It's possible that the entire purpose of these seemingly less significant reality shifts is to help us better appreciate the powerful effects that our thoughts and feelings have in the physical world. When we stop to observe when these random, mundane, "meaningless" reality shifts occur, we notice that most of them occur in dramatic (and often chaotic) fashion around us when we feel stressed. When we're in a hurry, or feeling very tense, important items such as eyeglasses and keys vanish or relocate themselves, and equipment malfunctions more often.

My husband would sigh in frustration when he told me about the dreaded "Demo Effect" that plagued his efforts to demonstrate new systems at work. Before he and other engineers could show off their technological innovations, they ran their demonstrations perfectly dozens of times in the relaxed setting of their regular work environment. As soon as important visitors arrived to view the demonstrations, however, bizarre and inexplicable technological glitches invariably arose. These breakdowns occurred no matter how well the systems had been tested in advance. While the engineers knew how to use grounding wires and power surge protectors for their equipment, they did not consider the need to ground the human energy body's powerful effects.

I discovered the destructive power of stress one week when I wished to prepare a presentation on reality shifts for a college psychology class. I was concerned that I wouldn't be ready to teach the class, because my daughter had a high fever and stayed home sick with me for the entire week. I spent most all of my time tending to her needs, and did not have enough uninterrupted quiet time to prepare my notes. As the days went by and my daughter was still sick, I became increasingly agitated. A couple of days before the class, my dishwasher broke with lots of smoke and a foul stench that filled the house. Within a few minutes of that disaster, the lights in my kitchen burned out with a blinding flash and lots of sparks, a sizzling sound and more smoke. To make matters worse, my computer crashed every time I turned it on. I belatedly realized that I needed to ground my energy, or risk experiencing even worse problems. As soon as I visualized a grounding cord of energy running from myself to the core of the earth, the damaging psychokinetic effects stopped. My computer worked perfectly without crashing, and nothing else broke down. My presentation went smoothly, even though I never did get a chance to prepare my notes.

If you notice that things seem to be moving around chaotically in your home or office, consider that your feelings of stress may be adversely affecting your physical environment. I've found that the best way to deal with such stress is to make time once or twice a day to calm yourself and meditate. Make sure your meditation includes grounding yourself to the earth, letting worries and resentments slip away from you and go down to the earth. Allow yourself to feel as loved and loving as possible. Breathe slowly and fully. When you inhale, remember everything you most adore and feel grateful for, and visualize that you are breathing in love. When you exhale, release all your feelings of tension and stress.

With practice, you'll be able to do this meditation even in the midst of chaotic situations, knowing that the love you feel brings peace and harmony to much more than just your mind. You can prepare to enter stressful situations by meditating, grounding yourself, and wishing for whatever is best. And when you next wonder, "Who moved my keys?"... consider that the amazing psychokinetic person responsible for this shift might just be you.
