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.
My Son’s Car & Greenway Changes
Redmond, Washington, USA
I've had several examples of alternate histories through the
years, experiencing this phenomena seems to be speeding up for me. In other
words, more examples happening closer together than before. By the way, I
wasn’t counting the Berenstein Bears or Thanksgiving on my list
until now! That’s two more; I didn’t pay attention to
world politics, otherwise it might have been three for three! Thank you
again, there is comfort and reassurance here, two very good things. Two
days ago, our household was talking cars, and my son mentioned having had a
Honda at an earlier time. This stunned me, because he has lived with me the
entire time and I have absolutely no recollection of a
Honda—that the only car he has ever bought was the Chevy. (I
also recall driving him around a lot, because he didn’t have a
car for a long time.) Also, there is a greenway in town that
wasn’t paved in the middle, then it was paved in the middle;
presently it is not paved. Do you know why examples might be
‘speeding up’? Thanks for getting back to me on this;
it is appreciated. And thank you for putting the word forth regarding all
of this. We’re part of the mystery. Every time I've tried to
make sense of this phenomena, I've ended up at your site, so recently I've
figured out that I'd best become a subscriber and read your books! Perhaps,
collectively, some sort of evolution is taking place regarding noticing
this phenomena. For me, it was happening before I heard anything about it.
I had to really seek to find your site the first time, which was a couple
of years after the first instance of reality shifting occurred for me that
I noticed, it was when several instances occurred during a short period of
time two years later. (The first instance had to do with reading someone's
book who is heavily into metaphysics, only to hear her say a different name
than the name that was in the book when I read it. The name in question
was of her deceased daughter. I figured at the time, it could be anything
because of her metaphysical involvement and let it go.) Also, I have
received a fair amount of energy work from more than one source. Thank you
so much for what you're doing putting forth Reality Shifters, conveying
your lucid dream on the gift mp3 helps to make more sense of this phenomena
that's taking place.
Note from Cynthia: Your experiences of the city meridian
sometimes being paved and other times not, and your son remembering a
having had a Honda at an earlier time that is not part of your memories of
family cars are excellent examples of reality shifts. Thanks for letting me
know you had some trouble posting your comments on my Berenstain Bears blog
post; hopefully it is possible to post your comments there, and you just
experienced some kind of technical glitch. In response to your question
about why this phenomenon seems to be speeding up, it seems to me to be
related to an overall increasing awareness of such things as alternate
histories that helps individuals notice these shifts as more and more
people are recognizing such things as the so-called "Mandela Effect" (aka:
"Alive Again" phenomena) and the Berenstein/Berenstain Bears.
James Woods Alive Again
Charlottesville, Virginia, USA
The Mandela Effect has been presenting itself so frequently
this year I can’t even keep up with all the names. But movie
critic Gene Shalit, actors Max von Sydow and James Woods, plus wrestler
Rick Flair are all at the top of the Alive Again list this year. Another
recent addition is Tonight Show trumpeter Doc Severinsen, and now I am
absolutely dumbfounded to learn that Ed Asner is alive again… An
acquaintance that was poo-pahing my recollection of the Berenstein Bears
spelling controversy just a few months ago was recently converted when he
learned that singer Tom Jones is alive. My friend says he has a clear
memory of hearing about TJ’s death on TV news many years ago,
and remembers having conversations with others about it at that time. As
for James Woods: I happened to be at my girlfriend’s house one
day back in the fall when a James Woods movie was on TV. She said something
about him being one of her favorite actors which I found surprising because
even though I knew I’d seen his face in lots of stuff I
wouldn’t have even known his name. Either the very next day, or
perhaps two days later, I happened to hear on the car radio that James
Woods had died. I immediately called Linda to tell her the news and we
talked about what a coincidence this was. That night we had dinner at my
house and both of us saw mention of James Woods passing with the typical
brief bio on that evening’s national news. So fast forward a few
months back around Christmas, Linda was at her family’s house
when a movie with JW came on TV and she said something about him having
died recently. Her relatives disagreed and checked on the internet
— and according to all current sources he is indeed alive. Of
many experiences I’ve had with the Mandela Effect this was the
first time it was shared in real time with someone else.
Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharingyour experiences
with some celebrities you've noticed alive again this year, including: Gene
Shalit, Max von Sydow, Doc Severinsen, Ed Asner and wrestler Rick
Flair--and most especially James Woods. I can empathize with how meaningful
it is for you that your friend Linda also recalls that James Woods had
previously passed away--yet now he's alive. Shared alive again experiences
are truly memorable, and they help us confirm that something rather unusual
has just occurred--and it's not a simple case of confusion.
Extraordinary Experience with Grid and
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA
Herewith my experience I had on Saturday evening 23rd April
2016, around 11.45 ish pm.
My wife and I had just come back that evening from Bahamas (8pm) and my
partner from our musical group picked us up at the airport. As we were
playing at an early 7am charity event, we decided that it would be best if
he slept at our place. We watched a movie and when it finished, we (my
partner and I) decided to go to our dock and have a night cap (11.30pm),
as we live on a lake and the view is very cool. It was full moon and we
were looking at the stars, which was actually very visible that night. We
chatted about upcoming events, saw quite a few planes leaving Ft Lauderdale
airport and flying over us at that late hour. Didn't seem normal. For some
reason we both thought that the planes were looking a bit weird, almost
like drone shape, but we left that at that.
As we were sitting there, I looked over the lake and noticed that in the
far distance past the trees and houses across the lake, there was like a
bunch of small stars, almost like street lights from afar, but all bunched
together. As I am looking at it, I decided to stand up to see if I could
see it better, and as I stood up, in front of me at the edge of our dock,
there was this like squared fence with lighted dots scattered in no
particular order on it and also another fence across the lake on the other
side. It was almost 3D like. It covered the whole lake I could see. So the
first thing that went through my mind is that my contacts are all screwed
up, as this sometimes happens on stage and the lights can play tricks on
your vision, especially when I sweat from performance. As I sat down again,
I remembered that I didn't have any contacts in my eyes, as I hadn't worn
them for a whole week while on vacation.
Sitting there thinking what is going on with me/my eyes, I saw in the
moonlight these bugs, almost like dragonflies, and wondered why there were
so many flying around this time of the night on our dock. There are
dragonflies on the lake but never at night do we see them. I then asked my
partner if he can see what I am seeing and told him about the fence too. He
said no. I then stood up again and immediately the fence was there. I
walked to the edge of the dock, told my partner what I am seeing, and then
I tried to slowly push my hand through this fence, almost like in the
movies scenes to the other side. As I was about to make contact with it, it
moved away so that I couldn't/didn't touch it. It then dissolved/broke up,
and all the "particles" formed like a swarm of little birds and started
flying over me. I sat down and again asked my partner, but he saw nothing.
There was like a blanket of these amazing flying birds constantly flying
over us in one direction, never ending, front to back, and I sat in
wonderment looking at this scenario. I kept explaining to my partner what I
was seeing. I tried to put my hand into the flying blanket of small birds,
but again they moved away. Throughout my experience I couldn't touch them.
I tried several times that night.
I felt there was a connection between the "fence" and the "dragonflies" as
they were really one and the same and every time I tried to touch them,
they would move away and breakup and all join together in a group that
almost looked like a swarm of bees. Then they would start flying towards
me, rather fast I might ad, and over my head into the dark behind me. So
yes, they were definitely connected. Same species.
I'd just like to explain their reaction when I tried touching them. They
never moved away quickly, but more like fish moving away from your hands
when you try and touch them in the water. Nothing frenetic but rather like
slow motion. Think of two magnets when the 2 positives face each other, and
try as you might, they just won't touch each other because of the opposing
force between the two points. That's what it felt like for me. Just
couldn't touch them, try as I might.
There was an endless amount of flying small birds/dragonflies. It was
almost like it could carry on for as long as I wanted them to. They
definitely worked together.
As for the dragonfly part of it, that only happened right at the beginning
of my experience. From there on they became the small flying birds most
of the time that night.
The experience lasted anywhere from around 35-45 min. The only reason it
ended was the fact that WE went to bed because of our early 6am wakeup
call. At that time I felt it could go on all night if I wanted it to carry
on. I felt THAT connected. I also felt I can see this again when I wanted
to and even told my partner that too. Unfortunately that hasn't happened
again, and believe me, I've tried to get back there. Hopefully it will
happen again somewhere along the line.
I tried to see if there was a way I could get my partner to see them too
and told him to concentrate on the moon and he'll see there is like an aura
around it, and every time I looked at it, these small birds would come
flying down to me and over my head and it felt like it came from the moon.
He never did get to see what I was seeing that night, but he knows my story
I told him we better get to bed after about 45 min or so (early gig), and
as I stood up, it started raining, but not earth rain, the other
"dimension" rain. I looked at the dock, and remember just thinking this is
amazing. I see the rain, but no wetness on the dock. Sometimes it rained
harder, sometimes almost drizzling, but clear as daylight. I tried touching
the flying birds again with both hands up in the air, and then they stopped
and regrouped and turned into this school of small fish and started coming
by me/us as if in the ocean, changing direction and formation all the time.
I described it all to my partner. Every time I got close to the edge of the
dock, the fence would appear again. It almost felt like "they" were playing
with me and it developed to the point where I was almost guiding them with
my hand movements. Very difficult to explain, but I can show you in real
life what I'm talking about. I also felt very amazed and happy that I was
experiencing this without any fear whatsoever.
When we decided to go to bed the first time, that's when the "rain" came.
It was almost like "they" were trying to keep me there by doing this, as it
was a most amazing sight for me. It worked. We stayed longer and a little
bit later on we eventually got up to go bed.
As we were walking up the stairs of the dock, it really started "raining"
hard. I still told my partner that it is really raining hard now in this
place where I am. Walking away from the dock towards the house, I stopped,
looked back and there were the birds still flying over the moonlit dock. I
walked back to the top step of the dock and then they came again and flew
over me. I felt they wanted me to stay.
I turned around, we walked back into the house and it was over. I do wonder
if they would have still been there had I gone back then. I certainly felt
that they would be there by the dock waiting for me.
That in a nutshell was what happened. The thing I also know about it all
was that I was totally conscious of my earthly surroundings throughout it
all, explaining as it happened. It was almost like another world has joined
up with us/me and I was in it too, living both sides. Just for the record,
I have NEVER had any experience like this before in my life, so this is a
huge WOW factor for me.
Now the thing that got me was that the next day I went on the internet and
started checking my experience out and if there might be some explanation
or similar experiences out there. What do I come across—a
picture, almost identical to the fence/squares I'm trying to describe that
I saw. I'm attaching the link for you:
The only difference was there was no big bright light in the middle of it,
and the dots were not blue, but white, but the same scattered all over. The
fence itself was not bending inwards like on the picture, but solid down in
front of me, but exactly the same as in the picture. I don't ever recall
seeing this picture before. I have also seen other similar ones since
searching on the internet.
Apologies for so long a story, but I wanted to tell it as accurate as
There is one thing I left out and that is that my right ear had blocked
while on holiday swimming in the ocean and was still totally blocked when
this happened. I don't know if this might have anything to do with what I
saw, but when I saw the picture on the net, that got to me. I have also
read a similar story about the "bugs" flying around experience. I felt the
experience, saw it clearly, was blown away, and for the first time in my
life I'm thinking "outside the box".
Note from Cynthia: Wow, what a remarkable experience! I love how
connected to this other realm you felt at the time. Thanks so much for
sharing your beautifully detailed description of what transpired the other
night that was such an unusual, remarkable experience for you! I am
especially intrigued by the way you saw a kind of vanishing-point-grid
pattern as well as the groups of small flying things.
I've not (yet!) had an experience like yours, though I have certainly had
numerous unusual anomalous experiences.
