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.

Berenstein Berenstain Bears
Both Berenstain and Berenstein Bears at Sams Club
Maryland, USA

I thought you would find this interesting. I was shopping at a Sam’s Club, owned by Walmart, here in Maryland, and saw a Berenstain Bears book. I was curious to see what it said Berenstain or Berenstein. Well it said both as you can see in this picture. It was too cool not to share with you.

Note from Cynthia: WOW! What a find! Evidently, whoever posted this item for sale on that store's computer system remembers the "Berenstein" spelling that so many people also recall, despite the book itself clearly being marked "Berenstain." I can't help but wonder whether this Berenstain / Berenstein 'glitch' appears at other local Sams Clubs or Walmarts in the area, or if it's an isolated case.


Alternate Reality for a City Block
Salem, Oregon, USA

I enjoy all of your columns and videos and I ve immersed myself in them recently. I also started meditating with your cd. Naturally I became aware of a pretty big reality shift that is ongoing. On different days there is an entire block on Center st that changes completely. On some days the post World War II homes are recently renovated, well cared for and maintained, and there is a brand new market just before the end of the block. On alternate days there are homes literally falling down, those still standing are shabby and the old, run down market is still standing. There is a cute little cafe in both realities, but it is seedy and a little scary in the second one. I believe I started seeing this because of my deep concern for our future, and my hope that we will choose the best possible future over one which would make Ursula K Le Guin weep. The first reality is about that hope, and I swear the sun even shines brighter on it. The second is about despair, and I feel the anger and resentment of the people living there when I drive by. They are the difference between a world in which the events that took place in Paris last night (November 13, 2015) escalate and become commonplace, and one in which the changes sweeping Myanmar spread. As I have been meditating, etc, I am seeing the hopeful version pretty exclusively (and there was a day it changed from decrepit to nice mid block.) I’ve often thought that Mandela lived to be an old man and did not die in prison because we collectively voted on that much more hopeful reality. I’ve been thinking a lot about the Lathe of Heaven recently-this may not be the reality we started out with, and thank God. I would be very interested in your take on this. Thank you

Note from Cynthia: Thank you for writing to me and describing the alternate realities you are seeing with a changing block on Center Street that is alternately either falling down into a state of neglect and disrepair, or renovated and well maintained. I have also encountered various realities that have one day been one way, only to switch back and forth from day to day to another reality--so I can empathize with how it feels to see such noticeable and seemingly inexplicable changes. I've seen my dog's eyes glazing over with cataracts one day, and completely clear the next. I've seen the rain gutters on my next door neighbor's fence sometimes being covered with leaf guard screen protectors, and sometimes not. I've found that whichever way my head/heart/gut leaned in "voting" ended up matching the way such realities ended up. Having said all this, I do believe that the optimism each and every one of us musters in challenging times definitely has a global, positive effect. There is much we gain when we long to know the answer to the question, "How good can it get?" as we wish the best for all concerned, and often we can directly see the result of simply staying focused on what we know is good. I'm really glad to hear that as you meditate and stay positive, you're seeing the hopeful version for the most part. How fascinating to have witnessed it change one day from neglected to nice mid-block one day! Yes, it does seem entirely possible that enough of us wished for Nelson Mandela's freedom, health, and longevity that we ended up experiencing that reality. And it seems entirely possible that on a cosmic scale, such collective consensus reality selection will one day be part of the explanation for how we ended up in such a finely-tuned universe! Joining you in envisioning a better world, love always, Cynthia

Schrodinger's Jacket
Houston, Texas, USA

I came across you after hearing you on a recent podcast My story seems to fit the idea of parallel realities. Simple story: I left my favorite windbreaker at a local coffee house over a weekend. The jacket went missing on Friday and I clearly had an image of using the jacket to cover my ipod as I went to the restroom. I had initially thought I had left it at a pizza place. When I went to the pizza place on Sunday, they had no idea about a jacket left. Then I decided to call the coffee house, named Beans. I called them and they immediately stated that the jacket was there, they confirmed the color and the emblem etc. I could come by any time and pick it up. When I went there, I told them I was the guy who left his jacket. The staff said, "Don't worry, it's here." They then began to look into every cabinet, stating, "I know it’s here. I remember seeing it.” They then decided to call the manager, who was working on Friday, to ask him where it might be. If that's where it ended, it would be a case of confusing jackets. A customer at the store picked up on the story and asked me a question, "Was it a windbreaker with an arrowhead on one arm, and SI on the other?" (SI refers to Sports Illustrated, and Arrowhead is the emblem for Kansas City Chiefs.) I said, “Yes, it was. Why?” He replied," I saw the jacket outside on Saturday night. For some reason I took the jacket and put it in the back seat of my truck. Here, let me show you." Now, I am a 59 year old white man, and he was a 30ish white guy; both of us could use some exercise. This scenario sounds like a bizzare abduction scenario, but I didn't sense that this was a dangerous person. He opened the back door of his truck, and lo and behold, there was my jacket! I thanked the man and drove home. After listening to you, I began to think:
(1) In reality one, the manager found the jacket and put it in some cupboard (hopefully for 1-2 days only).
(2) In reality two, this jacket was in the store for a couple of days, only to be picked up by this customer on Saturday night.
(3) It is only when these stories merge that I would have gone into that store with the employees believing the one reality, the obscure second reality revealing itself. It is very doubtful that I would have gone to the coffee shop had the employees not stated that they had found the jacket.
It’s like Schrodingers cat! My jacket was both found and lost.

Note from Cynthia: Wow, this account of what happened to your jacket gives me goose bumps, and I've been experiencing these kinds of shifts for years! I love the way you take care to describe the sequence of events, and the way you bring awareness to a sense of how it feels to experience overlapping realities, whose existence can be found in peoples' memories when comparing recollections about what transpired. And only when comparing these accounts with one another do we pick up the trail of reality shifts that becomes illuminated as the simplest explanation for how your jacket ended up in somebody's truck a day earlier, when the Beans coffee shop had just told you they had it, and to come over and pick it up!

Books that Change

I came across your website and some of your youtube and found the subject matter very intriguing and I think very much related to the a book I have by Hugh Everett. Everett's Many Worlds Theory and your answers many strange things that have occurred to me both in my childhood and adult life as well. Recently, I was rereading a book that I have read many times before and had performed some of the actions many times over a period of years only to read as of last week that the wording—has changed. This has happened to me on more than one occasion. I literally couldn't believe my eyes as I reread it several times. I have little in the way of doubt, that our reality does indeed shift, and does so many times in the total absence of our conscience perception. Because of this, the management of my thoughts and emotions, now occupies the very highest priority. Thank for furthering my awakening of something so incredibly fascinating. The passage in the book was actually part of a type of prayer that I have known by heart for many years, and have have recited hundreds of times. It was identical to what I have always known it to be for more than 15 years, except the ending portion was different by just one word. The word "within" which was what I have always known it to be, had somehow become the word “behind." I thought to myself, “Have I been reciting it wrong for 15 years? No way.” This particular book was used as a reference book and is heavily worn and its the only copy I have ever owned. Very strange, and hard to believe that a passage such as this one which was committed to memory for many years—changed. The change was just one word mind you, but I know like I know the back of my hand that that word was not there before.

Note from Cynthia: I'm deeply impressed that the change in this book involves a passage you committed to heart from a prayer in a book that you've only ever had one copy of. What makes this case of reality shift / quantum jump / alternate history so fascinating to me is that it seems highly unlikely that you would have been reciting this passage incorrectly for the past 15 years. The change of one word from "within" to "behind" indeed seems significant, and I'm glad you noticed this and shared it. Truly amazing! Thank you for writing to me about your experience rereading a book that you've read many times before, only to find last week that the wording has changed! I've had this experience with books as well, as I've written about in my book, Reality Shifts, so I can certainly empathize with the sense of astonishment one gets when you reread the changed passage several times.
