Quantum Jumps
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 books, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, and Quantum Jumps: An Extraordinary Science of Happiness and Prosperity.

No Longer in High School Yearbook
Denver, Colorado, USA

I found my South High School yearbook online from the year 1962. I lost my own copy of the yearbook many years ago. So I turned to the pictures of the graduating class of Seniors, expecting to see my photo, but I was no longer in it. There was instead a photo of guy named David Bailey, (same first initial as my given first name) that I don't remember ever meeting or seeing when I was there. It sure seems like I would remember a guy with a name so close to mine. He is similar in general appearance to me, but could not be mistaken for me. My best friend Steve's photo was there, my favorite teacher, Mr. Green was in the yearbook, but who was this David Bailey, and why was my photo missing from the yearbook? It gave me a pretty strange disoriented feeling, like I was some sort of alien put here with false memories. Could be a Reality Shift, or maybe some weird trick of memory. I was pretty much of a non entity at South High, as an introvert I had few friends, and was not involved in school events. I am not too surprised that there are no other photos of me in activities, but I expected at least I would be listed. My friend Tom arranged a blind date for me for the senior prom, but she never danced with me and went home with another guy. Didn't do much for my poor self image, but it is memorable, if only for the effect it had on my self confidence. I have come along way in finding some peace and self love since those days and finding a way to live in this strange and difficult world, but this odd experience gives me such a strange feeling, as though I somehow didn't exist in my own life then. It certainly felt weird. I was sure that I was not in the '61 yearbook either, but re checking I am now in it, though still not in the '62. And my name is somehow obscured under the photo in '62. My memories of those days is somewhat hazy, it was such an unpleasant period in my life. Maybe I just forgot missing photo day, or the photo got left out somehow. The thing about it is that life does seem to reflect what is going on within as you know. Here I felt so unimportant, sort of a nothing, and then to see the yearbook and how I didn't leave a single mark or evidence of even having been there my senior year was a shock. I do feel strongly that what we think and feel has an effect on reality, and that things can change miraculously in an instant. There are probably an infinite number of pasts as well as futures. Our reality is composed of a string of mostly logical stream of past scenes that explain where we are now in our lives. I really appreciate the work you are doing in this area. It is hard to find real clarity sometimes in this world where things tend to be very confusing and complex. I used to think things were too fixed and unchangeable: hard and unforgiving, never taking into account people's brightest hopes, feelings or dreams. The past was set in stone, and there were a big pile of arbitrary laws of nature that were invariable and fixed. I resented that. There was no "magic." Now I am beginning to realize that things are much more malleable than we ever suspected consciously, but it requires a change of mind and consciousness that most people find very difficult. That is where people like you come in to open people's minds to the possibilities. Until that shift occurs within, not much will change without.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for your reflections on your experience with noticing your senior photo not being in your high school yearbook. This is the kind of situation many people can relate to, since often when we see something in writing be one way and then another we wonder if changes in written records are really possible. I agree that things can change miraculously in an instant, and I've noticed times when I could see reality flip-flop between two more more of them.


Disappearing/Reappearing Road Work Signs
Sun City, Arizona, USA

I have had a couple of "now it's here and now it's not" things happen recently. There were road work signs in a neighboring community talking about a long term road project, along with the pylons, etc. The next time we drove by there, maybe two days later, it was like it never happened. Also, I had a driving trip planned from Phoenix to Tucson. My hubby looked up the roads for possible closures and my mom heard on the news that it would be difficult to get from here to there. However, the next morning when we were ready to leave, there was no sign of any closures at all. As a matter of fact, the traffic was unusually light! Oh, Whenever I am getting ready to merge from an on-ramp and need to cross way over to the carpool lane, I simply thank the angels for a traffic break and just move on over with traffic kind of backing off behind me in all four lanes! My state of mind for thanking the angels for the traffic break is "just as if it has already happened.” I don't ask. I just say, "thank you," for I know it will be all clear. I just used it again tonight! I even have my hubby expecting it now, even if he is driving and I am a passenger.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for writing to me regarding some disappearing/reappearing road work signs, the changes in the road closure situation between Phoenix and Tucson, and traffic lanes clearing up--all four lanes--just when needed. These are awesome! I love your positive attitude of believing what you are expecting to be in place, as if it has already happened, and I'm glad to hear that your husband and you both enjoy the traffic breaks! It seems people often enter meditative states while driving that might help facilitate these kinds of experiences.

Huge Hedge Suddenly Appeared at School
Morristown, Tennessee, USA

I've been going to college part-time for almost five years. Today was the last day of school for me, because I graduate on Saturday. There are several buildings on the college campus situated around an open square, with walkways that crisscross it. You can see the entire campus at a glance, as everything is spacious, and open. So, I was very surprised today when I walked out of the back of the main college building, and couldn't see the other side of the campus. Today my view was obscured by a huge hedge which was over five feet high, and many feet long. It had clearly taken a long time to grow there, and it was well trimmed, and taken care of, which was odd as it hadn't ever been there before today. I was so shocked that I followed the new hedge, staring at it in disbelief the whole time. I go in and out of the various college buildings on a regular basis, and there was no way that I could have missed this big hedge. No one else seemed to notice anything different at all. I've been reading on the realityshifters site about appearing/disappearing buildings, but I'd never had anything like that happen to me, and now I guess I have. I had been thinking over and over that had I been able to foresee all of the drastic changes that have taken place in my life since I had started college, I would not have gone back to school. Since I started college, I got cancer, two of my best friends died within six months of each other, I lost my job, and my 12 year old dog had died in my arms. Because I could not have foreseen those things happening, I had been brave, and very determined to experience campus life to the fullest. I had my poems, and short stories published several times in college publications, and I was recently awarded Honors in Creative Writing and English. All of those things have made me very happy. I hope that makes sense. The last day I had an unobstructed view was Sunday or Monday-May 3, or 4. I saw the hedge on Wednesday, May 6, 2015. The plants used to create the hedge were not plants I'd usually associate with a hedge. They were looser, and floppier, and there didn't seem to be anything holding the hedge up. I thought that was odd.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing your experience with a huge hedge suddenly appearing at your school the other day, and also that it's been a challenging time since starting college. Actually, 'challenging' seems like an understatement. It seems more apt to say it's been a heroic effort on your part to keep going no matter what, and I'm so glad to hear your poems and writing have been so well received, honored, and recognized! You're definitely not the only person to have noticed abrupt changes in Nature; I have published reports of an enormous tree suddenly being part of a neighborhood landscape that obscured previously visible views, as well as an entire mountain being in a different place. While we city-dwellers might be more focused on man-made structures, some of us definitely are noticing changes in plants! Your observation about these plants being looser and different than usual hedge shrubbery is fascinating.

Money Appeared to Pay for Book
Orange County, California, USA

I worked at LAX for 20 years managing passengers in Terminal One. We had a great little bookstore that I spent every spare moment in during my downtimes. One evening I was looking for the book "Lust for Life" for my guy who I knew would love the story of Vincent Van Gogh. I found a beautiful paperback version that cost $15.95. My thought was "YIKES! $15.95 for a PAPERBACK? I'd spend $5.95 but NOT $15.95!” (remember this is the ’90's) I put the book back on the shelf and walked out the door. I got no more than 10 feet away and looked at something laying on the floor of the busy terminal. Crumpled up in a ball was an interesting piece of paper—you guessed it! A $10 bill. I cracked up! Of course I marched right back and bought the book which was loved by it's receiver. These are the kinds of intersections that I love love love! Where it seems like god wants to make you laugh. Make you understand that you're seen and heard and loved. I'm a pretty serious person, so I'm thrilled when god makes me laugh. Working at the airport, I have to say was such fertile territory for miracles and reality shifts. the part that's hard to tell in a narrative though, is how much inner conflict I had. That's the part I never really looked at before now. How all kinds of feelings and motivations coalesced and collapsed to cause this to happen. Even as I was in the bookstore wanting to buy a special book for this person, I was mad because he never bought me anything. That played a part in my saying...geez, I'd pay $5.95 for this, but I sure as hell am NOT paying $15.95! For a moment, I even considered just putting the $10 in my pocket and walking away! But even as I was new to these types of experiences—I understood in less than a second that God wanted him to have this book even more than I did. I laughed at being outnumbered. Outsmarted. And also knew that learning unconditional love was going to be part of this package. And I was really proud of myself that I "got it" immediately. That's the part that brought tears to my eyes every time I remembered it. I have a feeling now that probably ALL these stories are complicated and that's why they're impossible to replicate. Maybe our consciousness is more soupy than laser like. Maybe that's not such a bad thing. Perhaps if I'd had laser-focus I would have ended up with the “guy”--But because I was more like a soup of all kinds of needs and motives, I got to learn about loss, heartbreak, resilience and unconditional love. That was even better!

Note from Cynthia: You're quite likely correct that most such experiences come from the messy, "soupy" subconscious areas of emotional entanglements between ourselves, other people, multitudes of objects and things, and God. And I love how you immediately "got it" about being outnumbered, and the value of learning unconditional loving kindness! Many people experiencing these sorts of things find when experiencing reality shifts and quantum jumps that high emotional energy is usually part of the package deal. And there's something immensely satisfying about feeling one is part of a bigger unseen order, sharing divine unconditional love!

Quantum Jumping and Software Development
Emilia Romagna region, Italy

In the past I've had the feeling many times while doing some coding that I suddenly popped into a different place. It happened when I couldn't figure out a problem. I would find the answer but often I didn't feel as though I was doing anything different, just that things were different and everything was working fine, and even looking back I often could not see what had been wrong. I've had this feeling many times: it's as though the 'jump' fixed everything and from that point on I would be working as though the whole thing had not happened. It is a most peculiar sensation. It seems as though 'feeling' is important in all this. I don't describe it well though. It is true that I can be slightly day-dreamy when this happens.

Note from Cynthia: I've noticed such meditative states while driving are often associated with "going farther in less time" reality shifts, and your experience of quantum jumping while engaged in software development activities sounds similar—like the computer programming version of going farther in less time (with fewer bugs)!
