Houses Changed on my Brother’s Street
My wife passed away on March 10 2015. I have been suffering
from intense grief for quite some time. I am better now, but still think
about her everyday. Could such strong emotions cause a reality shift? One
such experience occurred about 1 1/2 months after her death. I had gone to
my brother’s house to drop something off. He lives in a very
long cul-de-sac with rows of houses on either side. I have been there many
times. On this occasion, none of the houses were recognizable to me. I
drove to the end of the long cul-de-sac, turned around & drove as slowly as
possible looking for his house. I found it but it was not recognizable, it
looked entirely different, and there was grass growing on his driveway
where it should have been futura stone, and a hanging sign on his garage
which simply said 'Matsumura.' I thought I was going crazy, so I decided to
leave and exited the street, only to turn around and go back. I was upset
and confused, but I knew I was fully lucid and not crazy. As I approached
the street, the houses all began to look familiar, and my sister-in-law was
rolling the garbage barrel onto the street. I tried to explain to her what
happened, but she thought it was just stress. I know it wasn't stress, and
I wasn't hallucinating. Was this a kind of reality shift? I don't know how
to explain this.
Note from Cynthia: My deepest condolences on the passing of your
wife. The short answer to your question of whether strong emotions can
facilitate reality shifts is an emphatic "Yes!" Our inner 'qi' or internal
energy can be fired up by strong emotions, and qi (pronounced 'key') is
indeed the key to witnessing real-time experiences of reality shifts where
even very large things change instantly, sometimes right in front of us.
Your specific experience of witnessing profound changes to a familiar,
oft-visited location is quite similar to what many people have reported to
me over the past 18 years, so there is precedence for such an unsettling
and confusing thing as seeing a completely different house in an
unrecognizable neighborhood--as if everything was completely different.
Numerous similar accounts have been published in the RealityShifters
monthly ezine and on the "your stories" pages at realityshifters.
Years of Dust Accumulated in One Month
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
When the student is ready, the teacher will appear ;) I
heard you in an interview on Youtube and am excited to communicate with
you. I am not a scientist, thank the universe for spell check. But I have
lived a life of discovery. The 6th of October, 2016 week, I noticed a huge
shift in my reality timeline. I have recently moved and boxes are still
unpacked. Not having been wanting to unpack, I forced myself to do so. The
boxes had only been there for 1 month, but the dust and wear on the
contents were YEARS old. One other time in the early 70's a similar
experience happened. I was in middle school, coach surfing at the time and
noticed a time laps. Years later I heard that there had been a three day
reprogramming that happened, in our perception of time. I travel, craving
change often, revisiting new and old places. So, I can see the changes in
chunks—even in day to day communications. Learning to flow with
it all. Just wanted to say hi and thank you for putting a face on these
Note from Cynthia: Thank you so much for writing to me and for
sharing your experiences with a huge shift in which your moving boxes
somehow accumulated years of dust and wear in just one month's time! This
must have been quite a surprise, since I take it there was no explanation
for such a heavy deposit of dust. That time lapse you noticed in the 1970s
while couch surfing sound interesting!
James Garner Alive Again and Grocery Store
Fort Worth, Texas, USA
First let me say, how pleasantly surprised I was to have
found your website the other day; and how refreshing it is to know that
there are others out there similar to me.
My first experience with quantum jumping was in 1998 (I was 26 at the
time). My late grandmother and I, were watching her favorite show,
Entertainment Tonight. That evening they dedicated a fifteen minute
segment about the passing of James Garner. They reported that he had died
from a heart attack. My grandmother was in shock, because she loved to
watch his television shows. Several years later, she and I were again
watching TV. Only this time, an entertainment reporter was interviewing
James Garner. My grandmother looked at me, puzzled and said, “I
thought he died a few years back.” I replied back to her,
“He did die of a heart attack a few years ago.”
Later that evening, some family members came by and she was discussing
James Garner with them. They had no recollection of him ever passing away,
but she and I did.
A few years ago, I became interested in Quantum Physics, during a physics
class I had. The idea of multiple universe theory was extremely
intriguing. It just seemed normal for me to subscribe to that theory and
Quantum Physics. My physics class was only an elective, and I eventually
graduated with a B. S. in Criminology. Though I have a strong connection
to physics and astronomy. Today, I am working on my Masters. However,
some very interesting things have been occurring to me in the last year;
and I am certain it is in regards to quantum jumping.
A few months ago, as I was laying in bed, in a very relaxed state, I said
to myself, “I want to know more. I want to know more about
things I do not know about.” Later that night I had a dream and
a blue door appeared. As I walked through it in my dream, I immediately
woke up standing in my hallway wide awake. Since then I am certain I have
jumped numerous times, though I was unaware of what was occurring.
Three weeks ago, I was in a grocery store pushing my cart through the
produce aisle. Someone said hello to me, and as I turned my head to
respond, my surroundings changed for about 30 seconds. There was no food
in the produce section, the lights were out, and the building was in a
debilitated state. I could see the sun shining through the roof, and birds
were flying around the roof, inside the building. After looking around, I
heard a brisk sound, and my surroundings (I hate to use this term) were
back to normal.
The next day, and for the few weeks afterwards, I began scouring the
internet, as well as academic journals through my school’s
databases, to see if I could find anything related to what I experienced.
I even remember specifically searching for the term quantum jumping and
quantum leaping. All I could find, when using Google, were physicists
debunking that it occurs. At that time, I never remember seeing anything
regarding you, your research or your work. Again, one night as I was going
to sleep, I said to myself, “I want to know
A few days ago, as I was driving home late one night, I was listening to
Coast to Coast radio. The gentlemen he was interviewing was discussing
about the Mandela affect. This was the first time I had ever heard
anything about it. Then yesterday, at work, I searched Google again for
quantum jumping, and your information was the first in the search results.
Interestingly, some of the very same physicists that you state in your blog
that believe it is scientifically possible to quantum jump, where debunking
it when I searched a few weeks ago! I also found a lot of information
about the Mandela effect; incidentally, when I search a few weeks ago,
nothing regarding it was found.
Also, I am an avid Star Wars fan. I’ve watched them literally a
hundred times or so. The last time I watched them was about a year ago.
I specifically remember Darth Vader saying, “Luke, I am your
father.” Yet today, it is “No, I am your
The James Garner event, was very profound for me. I will never forget it;
yet it awakened me to a whole different realm of possibilities so many
years ago. It sparked a desire for me to know more about what is not
known, about what exists. For example, why I, and my grandmother,
experienced something that others did not. It wasn't until years later,
when I began studying quantum physics in an undergrad class that the
experiences I encountered began to make sense
Specifically the behavior of electrons when observed, compared to their
behavior when being un-observed. That started an enlightenment process
within me, I am so thankful for.
I've always known that something was different with me. My awareness has
always been keen.
My experiences have always differed slightly from those around me.
'Deja vu' for example. I define that meaning to be an event that occurred
by ourselves in another reality—concurrently, or in the past.
It is information that passes freely to our consciousness via electrons and
pure energy. So many people dismiss it simply as 'deja vu' when in fact, it
is an actual experience. Perhaps similar to how the Mandela Effect occurs
only instantaneously for the individual.
Looking back it seems as if I have experienced jumping very frequently,
with relatively little periods of stability, for some reason. Numerous
times I have arrived for a scheduled meeting only to be told that the
meeting never was planned, or wasn't on the schedule; as well as having
conversations with family members who would forget the conversation ever
occurred. Those are only brief examples of the effects I experience. When
researching quantum jumping a few weeks ago, you simply did not exist in
the search results—yet today you are number one in those
results. What I wish for, is a greater period of quantum stability.
Again, I am very happy to have found your information and your website.
The fact that you have your degree in physics from Berkley, in my opinion,
gives you validity. I am glad to finally understand what I have been
experiencing. Though it seems to occur rather frequently. I look forward
to reading your books and learning more. For some reason, I believe I am
right where I need to be and am thankful to have found your blog. Thanks so
Note from Cynthia: Thank you so very much for writing to me and
sharing your experience of having heard of American actor, James Garner,
being reported as having died of a heart attack back in 1998. I'm glad you
recall that you were watching this news announced on a special segment of
"Entertainment Tonight" with your grandmother, and that both you and your
grandmother were later startled to see that James Garner was alive and well
several years later. This is exactly the kind of first-hand report that
increasing numbers of people are reporting to RealityShifters since we
started publishing them in the late 1990s. I suspect the "alive again"
phenomenon has likely been happening for quite some time, judging by people
like Mark Twain saying things like, "The report of my death was an
exaggeration." And in true Mandela Effects / reality shifts fashion, even
that famous quote is actually remembered differently than this official
version, often being quoted instead as, “The reports of my death
are greatly exaggerated,” or “The reports of my death
have been greatly exaggerated,” or “The reports of my
death are grossly exaggerated.”
As I write in my book,
Quantum Jumps, "What’s most amazing to me about the Quantum
Age isn’t so much about the quantum computers as how radically
our concept of rational thinking is about to change. The seemingly simple
transition from bits to qubits takes us from our westernized binary view of
True-False logic into a wild and woolly realm of True, True-and-False,
Not-True-Not-False, and False. We’re entering a weird, wonderful
world of possibilities in which we’ll discover that just because
we think something is a certain way doesn’t mean it will stay
that way, or that others will experience it that way. Our legal systems
will be transformed, and historians, psychologists, sociologists,
anthropologists and biologists will recognize alternate histories as being
a natural part of existence. Medical professionals will learn to view
spontaneous remission as a naturally occurring process, and will encourage
people to adopt states of mind that facilitate quantum jumps in healing.
Our views of unbiased observers and impartial judges will be forever
changed as we appreciate how information can travel anywhere
instantaneously, and how everyone and everything is interconnected. The
Quantum Age invites us to radically transform our view of who we are and
how we work, play, love, and heal in our everyday lives."
I appreciate your sharing what you noticed when you observed significant
changes to your surroundings at the grocery store, and sometimes in your
dreams. I've also experienced reality seeming very much like a dream that
we can awaken within, as I describe in my book, Reality Shifts: When
Consciousness Changes the Physical World. Your stated intention that you
want to know more definitely seems to be providing clarity and focus in
your ability to begin doing exactly that. I'm grateful that you and I are
now sharing the same realities!
Once upon a time, I was in a relationship with someone. It
was all fun and decent until things started to fall apart. Out of the blue,
I found my partner taking a bit of distance from me. After a while he
started making excuses for his bizarre behaviour saying that he did not
feel too comfortable in our relationship. I mentioned the idea of taking a
break just to show that I was strong enough to do it. Sadly, he jumped
right at the opportunity and that's when I realised he was pushing me
towards this decision all through the past few weeks.
I went by the next few days feeling guilty and doubting my decision when I
suddenly got news—from a trustworthy source—that this
person that I trusted had been unfaithful to me several times throughout
the course of our relationship. "Why had you not told me earlier?”
I asked my friend. "It was not my place to meddle in your
relationship,” she explained.
What a coincidence, I thought to myself. Had I not suggested the idea of a
break, I would have never known the truth about his unfaithfulness and I
could have even ended up with this person. There is an Arabic saying "Wa
'asa an takraho shay'an wa howa khayron lakom" that basically means "You
should not hate anything, for it can also be good for you.” I
could not stop thinking about this. I was suddenly glad and thankful that
things fell apart now rather than later on in my life, when I could have
more involved with this person that obviously had different ethics when it
came to a committed relationship.
Since this event, I cannot help but to think that sometimes, things happen
in a way that lead to other related events, that could be good for us and
that can consequently lead us to living a happier life in the long run. I
started to trust that my journey was laid out for me and that I just had to
be the best person that I could be in my life and trust that life will
arrange itself for me.
Note from Cynthia: I love how you trusted your feelings when
noticing that distance was developing in your relationship--rather than
doubting yourself. Thanks to your expectation that a romantic relationship
can be based on respect, kindness, and closeness, you were able to
recognize warning signs when he became bizarrely distant from you. And
thanks to your awareness that something was amiss, you could hear him
telling you that he wasn't feeling comfortable in your relationship when
you suggested taking a break. I love the Arabic saying that advocates not
becoming hateful of anything, since it's such a perfect segue to inviting
imagination to soar ever higher, as we remember to ask my favorite
question, "How good can it get?" Such an open-ended invitation helps us see
how we can often be amazed with just how much better things get than we
could ever have envisioned!
