My husband is afraid of my mental health, therfore I am happy to be able to
write about my experiences here. I have had two reality shifts recently,
and it is so funny... so peculiar, I think, but I have no one to share it
with. The first one: I have a beautiful necklace in a small box, which I
keep in a drawer in a cupboard. One day I wanted to put it on. I went to
the drawer, and found the small box empty. I then looked everywhere I could
possibly have put it, with no result. I got a bit nervous because I got
that beautiful saphhire stone necklace in Thailand for my 60 years birthday
from my husband, and would hate to have lost it. Finally, after some time
where I tried not to panic, I went back to the drawer, and suddenly there
were two boxes: The empty one again, and the one with my necklace. I must
laugh because I was so released and happy!
The second thing was not very expensive but the loss of a button which I
had promised to sew in a jacket for my son. I knew I had put it on a trayer
beside some glasses with vitamines on a table near the window where the
light comes in, and where I usually sit when I repair things. But it was
not there when I decided to sit down and mend the jacket. I took all the
glasses away, and the trayer remained empty. This time I didn't get nervous
but thought: Well, the button must have fallen out of the window, I'll find
it when the snow has melted. Otherwise I have to look for another button.
Then later that day I passes that place, and in fact: There it was, exactly
where I put it in the first place!!!
Now I am excited to discover what will disappear next time!
I just wonder where the things hide, when we cannot see them? Another thing
I feel like mentioning is the strange and amazing feeling af joy and
excitement I have, when the things come back. I take it like a
confirmation of what I know: That there is a reality outside myself.
Note from Cynthia: Thank you so much for sharing these reality
shift stories. I can empathize with losing a favorite gem stone necklace,
and also the joy in discovering it has returned! I've lost jewelry before
and had it reappear, and I remember how immensely relieved I felt when it
came back. I don't know where these things go, but to me it often seems
like it's another parallel universe in which things are almost, but not
completely the same as the one I'm currently in. I know what you mean about
those feelings of joy and elation -- it also feels to me like confirmation
that for sure there is much more to the universe than what we take for

A mildly strange thing just happened, and I know of nobody else to tell it
to (unless I were in the mood for shrugging and/or preaching about the
dangers of distraction, which I am not), so I want to tell it to you.
It's nothing, really, but it's funny.
About two hours ago I went into my kitchen to fill a bucket with hot water.
(It needed to be hot.)
The bucket is big, so it takes a while to get it filled.
After 20 - 30 seconds or so I thought the bucket felt strangely cool. I
touched it, stuck my fingers in the water - it was stone cold (well, cold
I had been pouring cold water instead of hot.
I was annoyed because such things don't usually happen to me, so this event
took me by surprise.
Anyway, I turned off the faucet - the LEFT one, which in my house is, and
always has been, the cold water faucet - put the bucket-full of cold water
away (I conserve water, so I decided to use it for something else) and went
to fetch another bucket.
I filled the second bucket with hot (very hot) water - yes, I checked :) -
and put it away, to cool off just a little bit.
As I walked to the other side of the kitchen, my bare leg brushed against
the first bucket, the one with cold water, that I had put away. I thought
it had felt unusally warm, but chalked it up to the thermal fluctuations of
the weirdness that is winter. :)
But then I stopped and went back to check that first bucket.
I felt the outside of the bucket - it was warm!
I stuck my finger in the water - it was WARM!
At this point I could go on and on, elaborating on the details of this
little nothing... but what for?
What happened seems pretty simple if inexplicable: I filled a bucket with
cold water flowing from the cold water tap; I felt it - it was cold. Not
lukewarm - cold.
Minutes later, the water in the same bucket was very warm - so warm (around
37 Celsius) that it could not possibly be a mere impression of warmth due
to the differences in temperature that my hand has been subjected to.
I am familiar, as we all are, with the fleeting feeling of apparent -
relative - warmth (or coldness) due to a difference in temperature only.
This was not it.
This was genuinely WARM water - so warm that the outer surface of the
bucket had warmed up.
It was as warm as it had been cold only a few minutes before.
I have no known neural disorders, and I am under no influence of drugs,
I am also an extremely rational person who enjoys finding out the
mysterious - but "logical" - ways of nature.
However, my very reason compels me to admit the evidence of several
"strange" (logically inexplicable) incidents in my own life, and to admit
that sometimes the physical world does not obey to the usual "laws" of
cause and effect that seem to rule it.
I don't know how to explain this event; I have no idea how is it even
But it did happen. And yes, it definitely wasn't the "relative temperature"
It was COLD - and I also visually remember turning off the LEFT faucet.
Also, I wouldn't have filled it with warm water - I was going for HOT.
(And the second bucket was indeed so hot that it had to cool off.)
I am glad I wrote about this, because in time, I am sure, I would start
doubting my own memory of the event, and eventually would probably come to
think that something mundane must have happened.
As it is, I wrote it down less than two hours after it happened, after
having spent practically all that time thinking about it and going over the
sequence of events. :)
I don't know what exactly the value of such events would be for others, but
I am sure, if nothing else, they could help shift the entrenched illusion
that we know how the world really works, at all times.
Thank you for your fabulous work!
Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing this story with me
about the bucket of cold water
turning warm. I can definitely relate to your experience, as I've
reality shifts in which control knobs (for a laundry machine, and for water
faucets) have been completely different than they had been before. In this
case, however, it seems the water itself transformed from cold to
and that is a fascinating reality shift!

I have a fun reality shift story -
I went dancing half a year ago, and one of the guys I danced with was a
really great dancer, he was spinning me around sort of 50's style which was
funny because the music wasn't 50's at all! at the
end of dancing we went outside, and it seemed like he was going to try to
kiss me, I didn't want to since we just met, so I sort
of dodged it - we went our separate ways and only talk online once
in a while - he's a music producer and he travels a lot for work.
Then out of the blue 3 nights ago I had a dream he was kissing Drew
Barrymore and they were both dressed up like they were in the 50's.
It looked like he was going to swallow her face! hahahaha - It was so vivid
and weird because I haven't seen him or a Drew Barrymore movie in
forever! So I emailed him to tell him, and he said he just met her
a month ago at a party!!
RANDOM HUH! lol What kind of dream telepathy is that?!
Note from Cynthia: I love this story of dream telepathy! I find
dreams are often one of our best ways to be tuned in on the "innernet"
levels where we are all connected with one another. In some ways, dreams
can feel like they set the stage for or help create the physical reality we
subsequently encounter, and many a deja vu experience can be traced back to
an earlier dream. I particularly like the way the information you got from
your telepathic dream was not even something you'd normally ever hear
about... with an almost random, playful sense to it. And how marvelous that
you were able to follow up and confirm that there was an element of truth
to the dream!
