Shirley Stelfax Dies Twice?
Bicester, Oxfordshire, UK
I appreciate you must get a lot of these emails but I can honestly say
I clearly remember reading and seeing on the tv that this particular
actress died 10 years ago. I am not imagining it because she was much
younger and played a femme fatale chasing the vicar in a smash British
comedy. She was so funny—that is why she was publicly mourned in
the press on the previous occasion? Yet here we are reading about her death
(again). I remember the previous obituary; in that reality she died of the
same disease: breast cancer. However, in that reality the press described
her role as Rose in a British smash hit comedy, Keeping Up Appearances—she did
just the one series. So between 1990 - 2000 was when she left the earth
plane on that timeline.
Note from Cynthia: Wow, this alive again story is another doozy!
Thank you so much for letting me know that you'd seen reputable reports of
actress Shirley Stelfox having died some ten years ago. Yes, I see that
according to the imdb website, she's now passed away at age 74 on December
7th, 2015. I really appreciate your sharing these recollections with me,
and I'm sure your experiences will "ring a bell" for someone else! All
these alive again deaths get me to thinking of Mark Twain's famous quote,
The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated." One starts to see
how such rumors can get started, when some people literally have seen
reliable obituary notices!
Mysterious Escape from a Horrible Wreck
Huntsville, Alabama, USA
A couple of years ago I had dropped my daughter off at school and was
driving to my job at the Marshall Space Flight Center on the Redstone
Arsenal just south of Huntsville, Alabama. If you go to Google Earth, you
can find the subject intersection by searching for Marshall Space Flight
Center, AL. Click on Building 4200 and scan to the right (East), and you
will find it. I stopped at a red light at the intersection of Marshall
Road (which I was on) and Toftoy Throughway, and waited for it to change.
My light changed and the traffic in the turn lane to my right stopped
pouring through the intersection—and there was a car well up the
road approaching on Toftoy, but it did not appear that close—and
I of course thought it would stop, so I proceeded into the intersection. I
was driving a big long Dodge Caravan, and just happened to look to my right
to see a yellow car speeding at me just entering the intersection right out
my passenger window! At that instant, the car had not even started to slow
down. I stomped on the gas pedal. In my mind's eye, I was in a horrific
crash with all the terrible sights and sounds of metal crushing and glass
shattering. Yet all I actually heard was a "pop," and I cleared the
intersection. My van was much too long to have cleared out of the way
without getting a broadside impact—yet it did not happen. I
pulled over into the shoulder as I expected the "pop" I heard was my bumper
guard getting torn off. The other car also pulled over. I got out and found
only a small tiny scuff mark on my bumper that may have came from the other
vehicle—or anything else. I started toward the other vehicle
thinking that driver might be hurt; they took off!
I don't know how I could have survived a broadside impact from a car coming
at me that fast. I don't know how I cleared that intersection without
taking that broadside. Was the "pop" I heard the creation of the scuff
mark, the sound of an angel pushing me out of the way, or the sound of a
quantum jump of me and my entire vehicle? I used to laugh at characters in
movies like James Bond who comes close to death dozens of times in the
course of a single movie, and still manages to escape. Statically speaking
that just don't make sense. Then I got to thinking about my own life. I,
too, have narrowly escaped death numerous times. Have there been dozens of
funerals for me in other dimensions? All of this has me wondering if dreams
I have about a particular alternate timeline might even be true.
One other thing. A couple of weeks ago a lotion bottle on my desk just
vanished—but not while I was looking at it.
What do you think Cynthia?
Note from Cynthia: Thank you so very much for sharing your
experiences with me. I've heard from several people who have escaped
impending traffic collisions in similarly mysterious fashion, so there is
precedence for this kind of quantum jump experience. I agree with you that
many people enjoy something akin to the proverbial "nine lives" sometimes
attributed to cats, surviving experiences in which they seemed to be facing
certain disaster or death. After having heard hundreds such reports from
people since I first started reporting and tracking this phenomenon in
1999, it seems clear to me that quantum logic and quantum phenomena are
primary in the natural world. I've recently published two papers clarifying
Broken Washing Machine Suddenly Began
Bournemouth, Dorset, U.K.
Another strange thing that happened in the last couple of months, is that
my washing machine broke down—and then righted itself without my
intervention—another reality shift I'm assuming, because there
can be no other explanation. I remember thinking, "Wouldn't it be great if
it righted itself, and I didn't need to call out the repair
man/woman"—and then upon re-checking, I found that the problem
was no more. It's worked well ever since, and I still feel strange about it
and ask myself, "Was I dreaming?" But I know I wasn’t. I think
with my experience with the washing machine, when it first stopped working,
I tried switching it on and off and various other programs on it and
nothing worked. I quickly started feeling negative, frustrated and grumpy
at the thought of having to call out the repair people. But instead of
dealing with it straight away, I actually left the situation as it was for
a couple of days. After that, I thought I must get on with things and
arrange for its repair. But before I picked up the phone, I had the thought
about it working just fine, and I felt very positive and happy with an
expanded sense of wellbeing that went with that. My happy feelings of
raised vibration were much stronger than my mind that was telling me I was
being unrealistic. I switched on the machine, and it worked perfectly and
has done ever since. It’s a modern machine that is less than a
year old, so I don’t know if it’s like switching on
and off a computer when it plays up—like a reboot.
Note from Cynthia: I'm delighted to hear how your washing machine
went from broken to operational without mechanical intervention--that's
marvelous! Yes, I do think your experience with the washing machine
qualifies as a reality shift story. Even if it does have a computer that
reboots after a couple of days, it seems you had tried several things
earlier, even switching it off and on again (which is a brilliant thing to
do when dealing with some kind of errant computer system). I love how you
describe having a positive, happy feeling with expanded sense of wellbeing
that triumphed above it's previous breakdown! I just recently had a similar
situation whilst enjoying a holiday meal at my parents' home, when I
pointed out to my sister that the dishwasher had not properly washed the
dishes. My sister and looked at one another with that look of concern one
gets upon realizing that this day of all days would not be a good day for
it to break down. "Do that thing you do," my sister said quietly to me, and
I explained that primarily I hold the thought in mind that the only
acceptable possible realities are those in which the dishwasher is running
Robert Englund on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson in
Lexington, Kentucky, USA
I saw your facebook post on changing the past with Quantum Jumping and
thought I'd share a few of my experiences:
My dad and I had the "Nelson Mandela Effect", when people think something
really happened, but didn't. Both of our experiences had to do with
episodes of the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson episodes. My dad will
swear that he heard Zsa Zsa Gabor say to Johnny, "Would you like to pet my
pussy" and Johnny saying, "Sure, move the cat." Some said that they heard
Raquel Welch say it and Johnny saying, "Sure, if you move that damn cat out
of the way!" The second could not have happened, because the word "damn"
could not be said in the 1960's. Maybe in an alternate reality it COULD be
said? I had even heard that producers of the Tonight Show had signed
something saying that the show never aired and told the public about it.
Now if only Bob Eubanks had thought of that with That Newlywed Game
Mine was on November 9, 1984, just five days before my ninth birthday.
This memory came back to me a few years back when I was listening to my
alpha-theta wave cd and using my Novadreamer. I was watching the show with
my dad and went to the bathroom during the commercial break. When I came
back, I saw a guy on there, saying, "And then they put this crap on my
face" and Johnny sitting there, looking fascinated. I asked my dad who he
was, and he said, "Robert Englund, whoever he is!" Robert was talking
about his "Freddy" makeup! I have ruled out confusion with another TV show,
such as David Letterman. I could see Johnny so clearly sitting behind the
desk, and even his expression! The stage and background scenery were just
right. Sadly, my dad died on June 9, 2014, so I can't ask him what he saw.
I have searched the internet for this, and never found it. Could the CDs
and Novadreamer I was using have put me into an alternate timeline for
awhile and then sent me back? If I'm going to do that, I'd want to stay
Some things of mine disappeared lately, and I can't find them anywhere. I
know that I would not have thrown or given them away.
Earlier this year, I was eating pastel M&M's. I was looking for a sheet in
a big wooden drawer and when I pulled it out, M&M's started falling all
over the floor. I knew that I had not put them there out of the package; I
always wrap up the remainder.
Thanks for listening!
Note from Cynthia: I love how you still remember clearly seeing
Johnny's expression as he sat behind his desk, talking with Robert Englund.
Thanks so much for sharing your experiences with remembering having seen
Robert Englund talking with Johnny Carson on a 1984 episode of The Tonight
Show with Johnny Carson that--in this current reality--never aired. Once
you rule out possible confusion regarding having possibly seen Robert
Englund talking about wearing globs of facial makeup for his "Freddy"
makeup on some other TV interview show--and back in 1984, the only other
such show was Late Night with David Letterman--then you've most likely
encountered an alternate history aka: reality shift or quantum jump. There
is much we can gain by expanding out awareness of our true identity being
pure consciousness--pure awareness. From that state of being, we are
already connected with our possible past and future selves, and through
intention and "tuning" our awareness--much the way you might tune your
radio dial to a given frequency to pick up a radio station--we connect to
other levels of being and awareness, to other levels of ourself.
James Cromwell is Alive?!?
New Franklin, Ohio, USA
It has finally happened to me. I've been paying close attention to every
report of a timeline shift by you and others, but had to take their word
for it—mostly because I didn't have a clear enough memory of
reported incidents to clearly recognize it as a legitimate
I was on the couch in the living room, browsing some news on my phone, when
I saw a post about James Cromwell getting escorted out of some place in
But He's DEAD!
I specifically remember this man dying! I am aware of every person who has
been in a Star Trek or Star Wars film or show, because those are on my
radar in a big way. I was just telling a friend last week that I can't
personally vouch for any quantum shift/timeline change until it happens to
something in pop culture that I'm specifically watching very closely. And
here we go!
James Cromwell played Zephram Cochran in Star Trek First Contact. And he
was in I, Robot. I REMEMBER him dying
and I was upset because I liked him! He died last year, in 2014. Possibly
2013, but definitely within that time frame.
Now he's alive. I am absolutely shaking in my chair, and can hardly write.
The more I think about this, the more freaked out I feel! I've believed
other people's reports, but had not experienced this phenomena directly
until last night. It's a scary, amazing feeling!
Note from Cynthia: WOW! Thank you for bringing this news of James
Cromwell being alive again to my attention, as I also remember this iconic
actor passing away within the past year. Many people may remember him for
starring in the movie, Babe, playing the
role of the farmer who owns a remarkable pig. I'm glad you explained why
this particular alive again experience with alternate histories is
extraordinary for you, since actors who've played roles on Star Trek and
Star Wars are "on your radar." And now that you know that facts and
histories can--and do--change, you're at a pivotal juncture of more deeply
appreciating the underlying quantum nature of reality.
Jane Goodall Alive Again
I have never heard about the Mandela effect until now actually, but I just
have to share. I am an English teacher in Russia and a few years back
(around 8-10, hard to be sure) I came across an article about Jane Goodall
in a textbook I used with my class. This article briefly outlined her life
and her work with primates and then mentioned that she was murdered by
poachers (I vividly remember that, because “poacher”
was one of the new words for my students, I had to explain what it meant).
And it didn’t just state the fact, but there were some things
said about value of her work and loss of a great professional and
enthusiast. I am actually amazed to find out she is alive! And I
couldn’t have possibly confused her with another person, because
I don’t think I had even heard about her until I read that
Note from Cynthia: Thank you for commenting, and sharing what you
recall about this alternate history in which Jane Goodall was killed by
poachers. Fortunately for us and the world, that history does not currently
appear to be true, but I remember it also, and I’m certain I am
not confusing her with another primate researcher, because that was part of
what was so astonishing to me–the timing of hearing about two
primate researchers dying so close together, both murdered. I’d
love to confirm with you that you also, are certain you’re not
confusing Jane Goodall with some other primate researcher.
