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
A New Way of Thinking
I have a lovely ceramic lidded box that I keep in the medicine cabinet over
my bathroom sink. One day I dropped the lid and watched it begin to fall
towards the sink. As I thought, "I don't want it to break," I watched the
lid move horizontally through the air and then fall straight down onto a
towel. It wasn't even chipped!
The reality shift that occurred was NOT that the lid moved horizontally
through the air. The true reality shift is that I thought in a way that I
do not recall thinking before. My normal thought would have been, "Oh no,
it's going to break!" With that thought in place, I would have experienced
a broken lid. My world, my reality is always and only a reflection of my
thoughts and beliefs.
Auto Dealership Disappears
About three months ago, I was taking my usual route down a
six lane highway on my drive home. That street is heavily traveled,
lined with assorted businesses, and often backed-up with afternoon
rush hour traffic.
As I drove home, I noticed an unusually large mobile home park on
the East side of the highway. I saw people outside of the park, and
noticed that the mobile homes appeared to be about 20 years old or
more. I noticed the sign at the entrance of the mobile home park and
kept thinking, "I know there was a large auto dealership there... or at
least I think there was." I wondered if this might be a reality shift, and
resolved to take the same route to work the next morning to verify my
The next morning, the very large auto dealership was back, and there
was no sign of mobile home park at all. The more I think of this event,
it would seem to be a time-reality shift. In any case, it was very
encouraging for me to notice this shift. I often pay attention to that
dealership when I drive by, thinking of the possibilities in other areas
of life. More to the point, I would hope for a reality shift when it comes
to world conflicts.
Inviting Cedar Trees to Return
One day some trees spoke to me. I was terrified, because hearing the trees
brought up past life memories of being killed for witchcraft. After two
years of working through this fear, I could communicate with a tree again.
As I began to communicate with all plants, animals and aspects of nature,
trees were my counselors and teachers.
One day I was talking to some cedar trees outside of Westcliffe, Colorado
that had "died" in a forest fire. Only their rotting trunks remained. The
Cedar trees told me, "There is no difference between form and formlessness.
If you truly understood this, you would be able to manifest and unmanifest
in the blink of an eye." They also told me that my problem was that I
didn't believe I was God. I was pretty sure that the non-physical was God,
but I didn't believe that I or anything in form was God. That's why I
needed to understand that there is no difference between form and
formlessness. I asked for help to learn this, and was told I wasn't ready.
Then the tree said, "A good exercise for you to practice this would be to
bring us back to the area". I was puzzled about how I was supposed to
accomplish this, and suggested to Lauren, my husband at that time, that we
plant some saplings. He disagreed, saying it would take longer than our
lifetime for the trees to reach an appreciable size. Since I couldn't
think of any other method, I invited the cedars to return.
Some months later, I performed a ceremony on our property that resulted in
a dramatic change. Lauren remarked that it felt tropical like we were in
Hawaii, and stopped to point out some cedars we had never seen before. We
weren't able to determine if they were actually on our property or our
neighbor's. This meant to me that even though I managed to manifest a few
cedars, they were at the edge of my consciousness and might disappear at
any time. I showed them to a friend who had been to our property several
times, and my friend agreed that there had previously been no living cedars
there. I was not surprised that when we found the cedars, they seemed to
have moved slightly - but were still close enough to the property line to
make ownership questionable.
At least a year later, Lauren ran up to me excitedly and told me to follow
him. He turned and started running toward a tree growing in the middle of
a field. I thought to myself, "That's strange, there aren't any trees on
this side of the road." Then we reached the tree, and of course, it was a
cedar tree. It seemed to be located very close to the center of our
I haven't been back there in almost two years, and I'm wondering if there
will be a whole grove when I return!
