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.
Manifestation of Gold
St. Johnsville, New York, USA
I was living in this awful third story apartment—and eight years
prior, I was taught by a spiritual teacher to visualize what you wanted. I
can't remember whether it was the teacher's idea or mine, but I spent a few
hours per week visualizing gold coins falling from the sun into my
outstretched hands. I did not have an emotional sense of joy, but I did
Eye-magine how the gold coins would feel in my hands. Nothing became of it,
and I stopped the practice until I moved into this aforementioned
apartment. I did this for about ten minutes a day for two
months—and then I learned that a relative had passed away had
left me thirty three hundred dollars in gold coins.
Note from Cynthia: Thank you for sharing this experience with me!
I love the way you write about maintaining a sense of positive
visualization even after "nothing became of it" the first time around.
Outside a local convenient store about ten years ago, I ran into an old
acquaintance, Pete, who had been seriously ill. We started to talk but I
couldn't understand a word he was saying—so out of politeness, I
just kept nodding my head. Finally I just said, "Nice to see you again.
Take care,” and we parted company. I thought to myself,
“What a strange conversation that was.” About two
weeks later, I was talking to my brother-in-law, and Pete's name came up in
our conversation. My brother-in-law said, “You could not have
been talking to Pete two weeks ago, because he died two months
ago.” I still wonder about that strange conversation we had, and
how I could not understand a word he was saying.
Note from Cynthia: I'm moved by your experience meeting Pete, who
was difficult to understand, during a time when you later discovered he was
dead. This seems like possible evidence of a superposition of states--of
witnessing an alive (though unintelligible) Pete, and later hearing that
must have been some alternate history compared with the (new) official
history at that time.
Awareness of Shifting Reality
Found yourself and website a few days after discovering that events which I
remember are clearly changed. Examples of geography, popular culture,
changed spelling of familiar items and the best part living with an
enhanced version of myself and family members as I'd always wished to
The defining aha moment for personally amongst all is a solid extended
memory of actor Jack Palance ( Curly in City Slickers) passing away during
the filming of City Slickers 2 one year after accepting an Oscar for his
role in the original. I remember him accepting his Oscar being so happy for
him as he was a longstanding Hollywood Actor with defining looks whom had
not had prior acknowledgement. I also remember being very sad that he
passed away so soon afterward and making a point to see the 2nd film.
It was disappointing, they had to make do with what footage, already had
and it wasn't at all up to standard. That following year Billy Crystal did
a heartfelt tribute to "Curly" at the Oscars for 1994. I remember him
riding his horse away on a huge screen ,tears in Billys' eyes. In this
reality Jack Palance died in 2006.
This is undeniable for myself. There being no question this is different
version of same world. After much research online pieces came together
quickly. Science and spirituality have always seemed mirror images if not
the same versions of the same explanation. In agreement rather than
disagreement. If only they would come together?
I have experienced synchronicity in amazing ways at times during my life
and am a believer of changing reality. Your explanations and discussions
and interviews offer a reasonable explanation that we do accomplish such by
changing our version of reality switching between different worlds which
are the same with minor differences.
I look forward to continuing to build a better world for all. Which I now
believe is absolutely within our grasp. Thank you for your wonderful site
and look forward to hearing more from yourself in the future.
Note from Cynthia: Thank you so much for sharing with me your
experience noticing Jack Palance having died at two distinctly different
times. And now that you mention it, I recall a vague sense of some
confusion in 2006 upon hearing about his death, thinking, "Didn't he die
already?" Since he's not been an actor who has been in my focal "umbra" let
alone the adjacent slight-focused "penumbra," I was left with just the
foggiest sense of there being a possibility of an alternate history
experience associated with Jack Palance's death.
Landmarks, Signs and Houses Missing on Drive
Thank you so much for being there! I have had all of these strange
feelings and no explanation for them and now I understand. I don't know
why I didn't catch this before. I am a student of science (in my 50's!)
but also spiritual. It seems the two don't go together, but they do! The
friends I have now fall on one side or the other: spiritual or
science—they say I can't have both.
But it makes sense that "spiritual" and science would go together. I
thought I was all alone.
If I could "shift" realities, I would be in a place where I could come and
visit you and soak up as much as possible of what you know. For some time
now, I have felt that I was not "where I should be.” It is very
strange. When I was younger, I felt VERY STRONGLY that I had something
particular to do—yet, I didn't know what that something was. I
felt it for years. I kept looking in different places (not knowing your
way) with no luck.
Then one morning I was driving home from college—very early. It
was foggy—so foggy I could not see any other cars or signs or
people. The further I went I became more and more unsettled. I knew that
I should be seeing landmarks, signs, etc—but I was not. Then I
knew I should have come upon a small town I usually pass but I hadn't. I
was genuinely scared. No signs, no other cars, no people, no
houses—nothing but road.
Finally after about 2 hours I came to a lone sign that said, "Montgomery
(this way)" and "Birmingham (this way). I wasn't sure which road to take
because I didn't know where I was. I chose the Birmingham route and
finally I began seeing things I recognized. Then I finally got to my
mother's house. All seemed normal but looking back, that is when it seems
that things began to feel "not right" for me. I have chalked it is to "all
in my head" but, seriously, it seems that everything I have attempted or
done since then has been a failure. Prior to that I was confident, sky is
the limit, people were drawn to me, I was a born leader, etc.
Nothing has turned out like I imagined no matter how hard I try.
So with your books (
Quantum Jumps, and
Aura Advantage) in my Kindle Reader, I am forging ahead and hoping to
find what I need. I am just about broke so these are big investments for
me for I really believe they are good investments. (truly)
You asked for feedback about The Mandela Effect:
I have always thought it was Berenstein Bears because my last name is
ChaSTAIN and I would have noticed if the spelling were BerenSTAIN. I also
remember thinking that Berenstein was usually a Jewish name
I also thought Mandela died in prison because I wondered if Winnie would
take over his cause. I have seen a video out there where Bush 43 says
"Mandela is dead.” I don't know what context it’s
The Disney "Snow White" evil queen has always said, "MIRROR, MIRROR on the
wall, who's the fairest of them all?" Now, it’s "MAGIC MIRROR
on the wall.
Note from Cynthia: Thank you for sharing your experience driving
home from college and noticing you didn't pass the small town that is
usually there--nor any signs, cars, people, or houses. Over the years, a
number of people have reported having had similar experiences that have
been documented in the RealityShifters ezine issues and on the "your
stories" section of the realityshifters website. I'd love to suggest to you
that you have the ability to reverse out any kind of detrimental effects
you might believe were related to this incident, citing evidence from the
remarkable efficacy of the placebo effect, as described in my book,
"Quantum Jumps." We do much better on just about every kind of physical,
mental, and emotional test when told something along the lines of, "You've
got this" beforehand—and I'm certain you can again become the
confident, sky's the limit, charismatic born leader you used to be!
Thanks for sharing feedback on some other recent alternate history memes,
including: Nelson Mandela's death (I also recall wondering if Winnie would
maintain the momentum of his earlier work), "Mirror, mirror on the wall,"
and especially the Berenstain / Berenstein Bears. I love how the spelling
of your last name makes the change especially noteworthy!
I take it this was a rather familiar drive for you, rather than a matter of
having taken a wrong turn somewhere and ending up lost, right? I figure
your trip home was likely very familiar, and that's what made this
experience especially unnerving at the time.
California Dreaming Song Lyrics Changed
Lyrics to the Mamas and the Papas song, California Dreaming, have changed

Note from Cynthia: WHOA! I had to play this to see for myself
what's going on, and I can't even begin to tell you how bizarre it is to
see Denny Doherty sing a word that just sounds so completely wrong. And as
you point out, "I've been singing this song with different lyrics all these
A Dog Told Me to Slow Down, Just in Time
St. Johnsville, New York, USA
I had an out of body experiences years ago, and soon after I had 'out of
the ordinary experiences' in body—such as being able to project
heat energy into rocks just by closing my eyes and holding them to my head
and heart and intending. At times in the dark I could see a vortex swirling
movement above my head. I was also experiencing communication with animals.
For example, I was driving along and spotted a dog in the road up ahead.
Our eyes met, and it told me to slow down. I did. About 500 feet further, I
saw a deer in the field next to me running in the same direction that I was
traveling. Our eyes met for a split second as if it was
intelligent—not just a deer— and it suddenly crossed
the road in front of me. If I hadn't slowed down, I would have hit the
deer. It was if the dog was telling me to slow down.
Note from Cynthia: I love your experience of getting a message
first from a dog you saw in a road, and then from a deer. There are times
that something beyond mere information or facts seem to be relayed--and it
seems you had such a moment there on that road, helping you avoid running
into the deer, while at the same time gaining a profound sense of shared
