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
After I fried four alternators in my car over a period of several months
(for no apparent reason which the mechanics could find), I mentioned this
to one of my students, as I had to get rid of the car, because it couldn't
be satisfactorily repaired. My student (a Reiki Master whom I trained
years ago) simply laughed, as she recalled incidents of her own similar to
this (and those which had happened to other Reiki Masters).
When I first began to teach, I attuned 21 students in my first class. Three
of them had tape recorders running throughout the attunement (or energy
initiation). The tape recorders all broke down and would not work again
even when the batteries were changed several times. I told the students to
apply Reiki to the recorders, and all were once again fully functional
after receiving energy treatments for periods ranging from three days to
Also, after teaching a class or attuning students, I've noticed that I have
to reign in my energies or I will blow lightbulbs and fuses. I've
conked out all six bulbs in my dining room chandelier and my six light
bathroom fixture more times than I'd like to count after teaching a class.
As one may imagine, this gets to be expensive after a while.
I've had students who've walked to the subway under street lights after a
class and heard them go, pop, pop, pop, all in a row as they've walked
I've noticed that I've "fried" electrical devices by focusing on them. This
can work the other way, too, as I've resurrected a dead computer hard drive
or two, as well as dead auto batteries, by using Reiki. Two alternators on
my car conked out while I was driving on the Verrazano Bridge; in spite of
it, I managed to drive my car home a distance of at least 10 miles by using
Reiki after the alternator failed.
These kind of experiences are not so uncommon in Reiki lore, as my first
teacher told me that four Reiki Masters of her acquaintance drove an entire
weekend back and forth between Atlantic City and New York city in a car
with a dead alternator. When the owner/Reiki Master brought the car in for
repair, the service manager was astonished. He asked how in the world the
car had managed to get to his shop without a working alternator.
Making Heart Connections
A long time ago, I was a member of a small metaphysical group and school.
We were taught to do most everything through the heart, so whenever we came
together, we would imagine a line coming from the heart and going around
our circle, attaching all our hearts. We'd then imagine the "line" spinning
until it lifted up of its own accord and raised up. It would go as high as
it could, based on the intent and power of the group, and would then come
together in a point in the middle. It would then fall from the top in to
the center of the circle and the Earth. I have used this many times on my
own with groups, even in very large groups, and it's always brought amazing
results. Children will quiet down, and adults will pay attention.
I always do it left to right. I look at the person next to me and the next
etc. Sometimes it takes a while to look at each person in the circle, but
longer, but it always seems extremely effective. I did this heart
connections circle exercise at a very large outside event with Sun Bear,
where it was chaos to begin with. I could tell all the energy was flying
everywhere to no avail. I was truly amazed to see how fast it worked. This
was a prime example of spirit at work, because I felt a strong impulse to
help create a sense of community and harmony in a way that was highly
effective yet anonymous, with no personal agenda.
I also used this heart connection circle technique during a large gathering
for the Dalai Lama. Once again, I got a strong impulse to ground the energy
for peace, as he was urging us to do. There were lots of "men in black"
protecting the Dalai Lama from death threats. In the auditorium, with all
that love pouring from him and the audience, we watched as the men in black
stood in front of the stage... and fell asleep! I don't think they get much
love from the public. We watched out for them, too.
On another occasion in a metaphysical class, we had difficulty with a
dentist in a neighboring office who appeared to think we were the Devil.
We sent white light, and the situation got worse. We found that white
light was too stimulating. The best color for calming the situation down
was pink, although golden light was also pretty effective.
I discovered when driving in lots of traffic when I project white light,
all the vehicles crowed around me to bathe in it. HELP. So I used Golden
light and that worked great. WE all spread out. What a relief - especially
when surrounded with all those big trucks!
