The hundreds of first-hand accounts of reality shifts (aka:
mind-matter interaction MMI, quantum jumping, glitches in the Matrix) on
this and the following pages have been collected and shared through Cynthia
Sue Larson's RealityShifters since 1999. Special issues focusing on
particular types of reality shifts (such as: the Dead seen Alive Again,
Seeing Loved Ones Before They Arrive, Invisibility, Walking through Walls,
etc.) can be found by browsing through the RealityShifters
archives and subscribing to the (free) monthly ezine. Hundreds of stories
are reported here in this "Your RealityShifter Stories" section of this web
site, and the phenomenon is documented in the best-selling book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the
Jar of Raw Honey Appeared on Grocery Store
Yakima, Washington, USA
I had just run out of raw honey. I love it and hate running out
because a) it's expensive and b) only natural markets sell it where I live.
There are maybe two, and they are not close to my home. I
made my grocery list and set off to purchase regular honey, since I was
going to the grocery store by my house. Let me say, I go to this
store at least twice a week and know its contents fairly well. I
went to the honey aisle and didn't see a brand I wanted for a good price.
I was about to give up and pick up the store brand, when all of a
sudden, right in front of me, was a 32 oz jar of raw honey! It was
sitting completely by itself and the only jar. I grabbed it!
Couldn't believe it as no grocery stores in my area sell raw honey.
I went home and looked it up on their website....they don't sell
it!! However, it appeared for me :)
Note from Cynthia: WOW! I love raw honey, and purchase locally
gathered raw honey too, so I completely understand what you mean about
having a keen awareness of where one can (and can't) purchase such things.
How wonderful that a 32 oz jar of raw honey appeared at your grocery store,
all by itself, just waiting for you at the store! Writing to me via email
is indeed the best way to submit a reality shift story, and thank you so
very much for sharing this one!
What a great feeling it was to read that other people have had these
In as few words as possible I will describe my experience.
I was 18 years old ( I am a very young 57 now) when I took my first
vacation to Acapulco.
I was lounging on my chair by the hotel pool talking to a Mexican fellow
who happened to be there too. We were the only people there by the time I
was ready to leave.
I grabbed my belongings and went to get my sandals that I put under my
lounge. I said to him that I could not find them .They were indeed gone. I
made some sort of joke about going barefoot back to the house where I was
staying with friends. He then called me back saying there was a pair of
sandals under the lounge one over from mine. They were not mine but told
him "if they fit I am going to wear them" especially since someone had
taken mine. I noticed they were made of cork on the bottom and that one
shoe in particular had a very large crack right down the whole length of
the bottom. They were well worn to say the least and very dirty.
On the way out of the hotel I stopped at the smoke shop to buy cigarettes.
As I was paying I heard the voices of two females behind me and suddenly
felt a tap tap on my back and heard "Excuse me , Can we see your sandals?"
I could see they appeared peeved and I was terribly embarrassed. I said ok
"sure." I recall lifting my pant hems up so they could see the sandals
better all the while planning to quickly hand them over with a big apology
and dash out.
Next ,one of the woman asked me to take off the shoes and I felt they were
ready to pounce as soon as they verified that crack on the bottom. I had
them face up getting ready to give them to her. In a very stern tone she
said "Now turn them over" which I did immediately. I recall their
jaws literally dropping and they kept saying. "Oh we are so sorry" over and
over. I was myself so ready to be the apologetic one!
I looked at the bottoms of the sandals and they were unrecognizable?! They
were no longer made of cork nor was there that unmistakable crack. The
bottoms were now new and very shiny!! They were made of a whole different
material and looked never worn.
I remember feeling numb putting the sandals back on walking out the lobby
while I watched them huddled together and their shocked faces watching me
as I left.
As soon as I was on the street I stopped flipped my foot up and there was
the dirty cracked cork bottom again! I did the same with the other foot and
yup same thing. That new shiny material I and apparently they saw was gone.
I have always wondered what the heck happened and I feel very thankful for
finally getting an explanation.
I have had a number of very strange happenings throughout my life and have
felt very alone seeking answers. This is one situation you have shed light
on for me!
Any further feedback from you would be very welcome!
Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing your experience in
Acapulco with the amazing transforming sandals! This is a good example of a
type of reality shift in which a person notices something first one way,
then a bit later another, and then reverting back. I've witnessed this
back-and-forth type of reality shift for meaningful (health related) and
not-so-meaningful (not anything I care about) matters, but your experience
stands out because the change of the sandals soles from cracked to brand
new happened at exactly the moment of inspection--when it mattered most how
they looked underneath. As I describe in my new book, Quantum Jumps, we
most likely live in a holographic multiverse, in which we have access to
parallel universes that exist alongside our own, and since we are actually
consciousness--not just our physical bodies--we are capable of traveling
from one universe of possibility to another... and back.
Remembering Jane Goodall Alternate History
Bluffton, South Carolina, USA
I haven't written to you in a long time, but I read your monthly ezine
regularly and with great interest! (And I just started Quantum Jumps--so far, I find it
fascinating!) Anyway, the reference in this month's Reality
Shifter to the alternate versions of the death/non-death of Jane
Goodall really caught my eye--particularly the part about being happy to be
in a reality in which she is still alive. When I read that, I
thought, "What?! She's still alive?!" because I distinctly
remember that she died after being mauled by the very subjects of her
research; in my memory, this happened decades ago. I was so certain
of it, that when my husband (who is not as open to the idea of reality
shifts, psi, or anything not grounded in "everyday reality") walked into
the room, I said to him, "Do you remember Jane Goodall?" He did, he
mentioned her research with primates and when I asked if he knew what
happened to her, he immediately said, "Yes, she was mauled to death."
I did not in any way mention my memory of events or prompt him in any
way. I said, "Well, she's still alive!" He simply responded
that it must have been some other wildlife researcher he was thinking of,
but I really think we both used to be in the other reality, wherein Jane's
life came to an unhappy end. I remember about Dian Fossey too, but
that was a separate different incident. I'm glad too that in the reality
we're in now, this did not happen! (BTW, this is my very first
personal experience of the alive/not alive phenomenon that you often write
Thank you very much for your compelling work! How good can it
Note from Cynthia: Thank you so very much for writing to tell me
about how you and your husband remember an alternate history in which Jane
Goodall was mauled to death. I'm glad you share my sense of relief that in
this reality, she's alive and well! I appreciate your adding this detail
about the gruesome death involving the primates she'd been studying, too,
since additional details sometimes jog other peoples' memories. All I had
remembered about Jane's cause of death at the time I first heard of her
death is that it was very sudden and violent... and as I read your account
of her having been mauled to death by chimpanzees, I find the rational,
analytic part of my mind wondering whether that was what I'd heard back
when I'd heard of her death. It does seem like it fits, and it fits much
better as a memory of what I recall having happened to Jane than her being
murdered by people (which is what happened to Dian Fossey). So thank you
for sharing this, as it clears up for me some of my own inner confusion as
to how I could have felt so certain that Jane's alternate history death,
though bloody and sudden and violent was not to my recollection a murder.
Your recollection clears all of this up for me. Thank you!
