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 book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the
What a lovely webiste you have; congratulations! I've had
the most entertaining time over the last few nights reading
about everyone's reality shifts, not to mention your
enlighting Introduction. I have experienced - to greater
and lesser degrees - around three types of the five reality
shifts you describe. If I actually participated in a 'time-
stop' situation though, I'd be TOTALLY spun out!
I wasn't going to email you my stories but figured, no, I
should. The more people that have an open mind about reality
shifts and share their stories, the greater our awareness
is of the wonderment of the universe and it's infinate gifts.
The greater our awareness of something so fab can only be
positive can't it?!
The first story I'd like to relate happened about six weeks
ago. I was getting ready to go to a concert with my cousin.
The last time I had been to a classical music concert was
in 1994, so I was very excited. Just as we were about to
leave, I went to get my purse (this purse is about the size
of a man's wallet); it had completely vanished. Gone! I
searched high and low. My parents who were there babysitting
the children searched - to no avail. My next door neighbour
who had had dinner with us earlier searched too. Again it
was not to be found. When I gave up looking and decided
that (a) there wasn't much cash in there anyway, and (b) I
could cancel my cards - so it was stressful, but I'd get
over it... I looked up and saw it sitting on the bench
between a photo frame and a bowl where my neighbour had put
it before dinner out of reach of the children. He knew it
and I knew it but we'd forgotten with all the rushing of my
cousin and I getting ready to go out, getting the chidren
bathed, ready for bed etc.
Letting go of it had a lot to do with me finding my purse,
I'm sure. Another thing that struck me was - if it was
there the whole time, not one of us saw it, and if the new
quantum physicists are right (for the record I believe this
theory) then it wasn't there anyway, because it wasn't being
observed... food for thought!
The second story I'd like to share was something that
happened to me years ago - perhaps ten or so. I was driving
out of the village and saw a car about 20 meters ahead of me.
It was a beige wagon, really, really average, standard car
that you see all over the place - or did back then, anyway.
It rounded a bend in front of me, I followed and after I'd
rounded the bend, found that it was no longer in front of
me. There's nowhere to turn or park on this stretch of
road - it's fairly much open farmland and the road is
narrow. I remember thinking 'wow' and then getting on with
thinking about the day ahead.
I have loads more, but the top two are the ones that strike
me the most. Keep up the excellent work Cynthia!
Pennies from Heaven
Something neat-o happened on Friday, 10/18 to me and my young
son outside the Safeway grocery store. There's a fun fountain
near the store with a cow's head sculpture that we like to make
wishes in with tossed pennies. We parked near it and walked
over towards it. However, as we were walking, I was fishing
around in my pockets and slowly realized that I didn't have a
penny or even any coins for my son's wish. I suddenly thought
to look down at the ground, and I wished that I might find one
there. Within about two seconds my eyes fell on a dark penny
in a little corner of dark dirt near the door to the store!
I picked it up and showed it to him, delightedly telling him
that I just got my wish, which was to find a penny for him to
use for making his wish! We laughed about that for a long time
and I thanked the universe for providing just what we needed
The next day, we went to the Safeway grocery store again with
my husband to pick up hams for a potluck on Sunday, and we
told him about how we'd gone over to the fountain the other
day ("Just like this", we said, as we did it again) and "we
looked down for a penny like this," (as we did again), "and
found one right in the dirt here!" (as we pointed
dramatically). So, guess what happened? Yep! We found
ANOTHER penny right there in the dirt just inches away from
where the first one had been! And Jack witnessed it this time.
:) My son dug it out of the dirt this time and was eager to
make his wish, like it was just the most natural thing in
the world to look down for a penny and find one immediately.
I was pretty impressed, but tried to accept it too,
gratefully. Cool, isn't it? Such a little thing, but mighty
On the next Friday afternoon, October 25, we went to the drug
store next door to the grocery store, and, naturally, my son
found a penny on the floor as we were checking out. I
suggested that we go to the fountain next door so that he
could make a wish. He loved that idea, so we went there. He
ran around to the back side of the fountain where the wall
is and stood on the bench behind the wall. He announced his
wish out loud as he threw in the coin. This time he said "I
wish that I could find seven more pennies for me and seven
more for my mom!". I rolled my eyes and chuckled and then
started to walk around the fountain towards the back,
passing the plantings on the right side where some small
flowering shrubs are growing. I noticed a funny light green
circle in the dirt beneath the plants and suddenly recognized
the small circle as a weathered penny! I called to him to
come and see what I'd found and only then noticed even more
green circles and some brown ones too! He quickly scrambled
up to the planter and started picking out penny after penny!
We counted them up and there were not just fourteen, but 38
pennies!! Even though I had to finish packing at home, I
couldn't drag him away from this fortune in wishes, and so
we spent the next 20 minutes or so making wishes and
tossing the dirt-encrusted pennies into the water. He even
offered pennies to kids walking by with their moms, so that
they could have wishes too. What a day! He's a natural at
manifesting what he wants. :) I could only guess that the
person who cleans the fountain may have chucked some of the
pennies into the bushes, or that some wishers have bad aim!
We saved two of the pennies, one to keep as a reminder and
another for his teacher (since one of the wishes was for
her recently injured arm to heal quickly).
Here's hoping that all your wishes come true! Have a great
One night I was having a strange dream in which I saw a large
rat. I never dream of such things, so I was trying to
understand the significance of such a disgusting image when
I awoke at dawn, at that in-between time of light and dark.
As I made my way through the bedroom into the kitchen, I was
surprised to see my cat, Stephanie. Stephanie always stayed
outside, so I thought she must have gotten in by mistake.
Suddenly, her image became transparent and then disappeared.
I was shocked and alarmed, and went to the back door to check
and see if something had happened to her. There she stood --
gloating over her new catch and gift for me, a large rat. Now
I knew the meaning of the dream! Why I had this experience,
I don't know. It just proves how connected we all are, even
with our pets.
