Live your best possible life. How good can it get?

This is the perfect time to envision an alternative to Transhumanism, reclaiming humanity’s wisdom.
I noted with great interest that Dr. Robert W Malone, M.D. is asking a brilliant question that affects us all in his Substack column, Who is Robert Malone: Is the dark WEF globalist transhuman future dystopia inevitable?

I smiled when reading Dr. Malone’s article, for three reasons:

Firstly, I share Dr. Malone’s concern with regard to a possible nightmarish future for humanity, which he summarizes as:

As we begin to emerge from the tunnel of the COVIDcrisis and all of the biowarfare, information warfare, WHO, WEF and US Department of Homeland Security mismanagement which has caused so much damage, we are being presented with a “Great Reset” vision of a fourth industrial revolution, transhumanism, and a new class structure of Physicals, Virtuals, Machines and “Davos Man” Overlords which is being globally pitched by the World Economic Forum and its acolytes as the inevitable outcome.

Secondly, the author Malone heavily cites in this article, Christopher Michael Langan, is a colleague of mine, who has graced events that I have helped to organize for Foundations of Mind, including the 2017 conference where Langan presented the paper mentioned by Dr. Malone, Metareligion in the Human Singularity. In this paper, Langan emphasizes:

… man requires a valid interpretation of the human individual in society, and of the individual and society in reality at large. This interpretation must take the form of an unbroken correspondence spanning the extended relationship between man, as an inhabitant of reality, and reality in its most basic and universal form; man must see himself as an integral part of reality, and reality as an extension of his own being within a single unified ontology or metaphysics. In short, man and reality must share a common metaphysical identity.

And thirdly, because the call to action of finding some kind of common metaphysical identity for man and reality proposed by Christopher Michael Langan is one that I’ve taken to heart and begun working on.

In October 2020, I began writing articles, and giving presentations and interviews about a possible positive vision for humanity that I referred to as Revhumanism. I discussed Revhumanism on Gaia TV, on an episode of Open Minds with Regina Meredith, presenting it as an essential alternative to Transhumanism that is of critical importance to humanity at this time.

What is Revhumanism?

Humanity now faces a choice between Transhumanism, which was named by Julian Huxley in 1927 as part of a belief that, “the human species can, if it wishes, transcend itself,” and something that is much more life-positive. While Transhumanism is pushed by Big Tech and the World Economic Forum—an alternative metaphysics currently seems much more nebulous and unclear, to the point that it’s something akin to “The Road not Taken”—the road referred to in Robert Frost’s poem by that same name as “grassy, and wanted wear.”

At this time when there is such clamor to upgrade to ever-newer gadgetry and technology, so much pressure to comply with new medical procedures and technology, and ever-increasing evidence that the rights of the many are being trampled by power wielded by a few—that “Road not Taken” can start to seem better and better.

Fortunately for mankind, some have kept the “Road not Taken” in their hearts. There are even some people who have walked this beautiful path consistently, despite tremendous pressure to be assimilated by more modern ways. Fortunately, there still exists a philosophy of harmoniously living and co-creating with a living, developing Cosmos, with reverence for the Earth, and other beings. Revhumanism involves relating with reverence, humility, and empathy with others, with the Earth, and with the Cosmos, inviting us to actuate high-level sovereign agency.

These principles can be considered to be central parts of a life-centered alternative to Transhumanism. When pondering what to call such a life-positive alternative, Revhumanism comes to mind. The Latin “rev” relates to ideas of reviving, regaining, recalling, and growing strong and young again. “Rev” also stands for reverence: a quality that inspires us to live up to our truly highest potential of seeing and respecting the inspiration, light, and consciousness that all of creation shares. Revhumanism invites humans to return to honoring the Earth as the source of life and sustenance. Sovereignty is a key concept in Revhumanism, with awareness of incarnational spirituality, which recognizes our sense of living our life with purpose and for some reason. We are not mere automatons whose existence can be summarized as somehow only consisting of information, or bits and bytes of computer memory on a chip. We have an awareness of having meaning and purpose in our life.

Common Metaphysical Identity

In 1992, the Fetzer Institute sponsored one of the highest-level intellectual conferences ever held between the first nations people of the American continent, including Leroy Little Bear, together with quantum physicists, including Dr. David Bohm, and field-experienced linguists, with a goal of translating concepts between indigenous and western scientific worldviews, and finding unifying areas of agreement. Linguist and professor Dan Moonhawk Alford documented points of agreement from between physicists and Native Americans, in his “Report on the Fetzer Institute-sponsored Dialogues between Western and Indigenous Scientists” published in 1993. These points of agreement included:

  • Everything that exists vibrates
  • Everything is in flux
  • The Part Enfolds the Whole (not just whole is more than sum of its parts)
  • There is an implicate order to the universe
  • The ecosphere is basically friendly
  • Nature can be taught new tricks
  • Quantum potential and Spirit mean something similar
  • The principle of complementarity supercedes dualities

One of the most important discoveries of this intersection of linguistics, Native America, quantum physics and consciousness was the realization that there can exist the kind of common metaphysical identity shared by man and reality called for by Christopher Michael Langan. Dan Moonhawk Alford pointed out the realization that Benjamin Lee Whorf made of the way human thinking can be influenced by language, which can be witnessed when considering verb-dominated languages, such as most Native American languages. As Moonhawk writes:

Whereas every sentence in English must properly have a subject, a noun or noun phrase, and a verb, many if not most Native American languages can have sentences with no nouns at all. ‘Rehpi,’ a full sentence in Hopi referring to a celestial event, means ‘flashed,’ where we have to say, ‘the lightning flashed.’ But this goes much further: sa’ke’j says that when he’s speaking mi’kmaq back on the reserve, he can go all day long without ever uttering a single noun. This statement is mind-boggling to most English speakers. So much of our facts and knowledge are wrapped up in nouns, so what would all that knowledge look like in a language that doesn’t value nouns in the same way? This includes all concepts, all the way to ‘god.’

Leroy Little Bear further clarifies:

Aboriginal peoples are forever explaining themselves to non-Aboriginal people: telling their stories, explaining their beliefs and ceremonies, and introducing ideas that have never crossed the non-Aboriginal mind. Western knowledge operates from a linear, singular view; it views the world from order beneath chaos; it is very noun oriented; knowledge is about oneself in relation to everything else in a relativistic sense. Aboriginal knowledge has a very different “coming to know.” It is holistic and cyclical; it views the world from chaos underneath order; its languages are process and action oriented. Knowledge is about participation in and with the natural world.

Revhumanism acknowledges that humanity is part of a living, growing Cosmos, with everyone intrinsically having a transcendant divine nature. Revhumanism invites us to live true to our highest potential of embodying more wisdom than cleverness; more hope than cynicism; more humility than hubris; more empathy than apathy; and more reverence than insolence. Revhumanism represents a radical invitation for each of us to be the highest level embodiment of consciousness we wish to see in the world. When we see everyone and everything from the perspective of reverence, doors to adjacent possible realities open where there were no doors before.

We now have a wonderful opportunity to ask, “How good can it get when we see ourselves as an integral part of reality, and reality as an extension of our own being?”

What is the relationship between timelines, reality shifts, and the afterlife?  If we exist in a simulation when living, where do we go when we die?  What, if anything, exists outside of the simulation?  When we go within, are we accessing a part of us outside of the simulation? 

These are questions sent to me by my friend, Ross, who also asks:

Since physical reality is an illusion, does everything that I experience exist only in my mind/consciousness, or is it being dreamed by my soul (or some other part of me), or is it all just a part of the simulation or some combination?  Where is the simulation coming from?  Is it being beamed from Saturn’s rings, as David Icke suggests?  Who created the simulation?  Inquiring minds want to know.

Timelines and the Afterlife

The same day that Ross wrote to me, so did my friend, Gina, who has begun hearing loved ones who have passed on, as well as ancestors.  Some of the information Gina receives includes suggestions on how to do things the “old country” way, as it was done generations ago, and can be easily confirmed to be accurate and useful information, since to include such advice in Gina’s home brings instant success.  Gina is able to hear her deceased relatives and ancestors just fine, and can ask questions and get answers that assist her in bringing back what otherwise might have been a long-lost way of cooking, baking, and working with various crafts.  Not only can home-making information be relayed, but perhaps more surprisingly to Gina, so can real-time assistance in Gina’s life in the here and now.  Gina relays how she met a deceased great uncle who asked her, in Italian, if she was okay, showing great concern and caring–in fact, more care than most living people.  Gina replied that she needed to find a house as soon as possible, since she was deep in grief from news of her mother having just died, and needed to leave her cousin’s house, where the family had been staying.  “You need a house?”  he said in Italian.  The next thing Gina knew, he’d gathered a group of family, who discussed what could be done, with the men making arrangements while the women provided grief-support and comfort for Gina.  The very next day after this conversation with Gina’s deceased ancestors and relatives, Gina’s cousin told her that she’d found a house from a friend of hers that was available for her family to rent.
Gina’s question to me is, “How is it Cynthia that I have never heard of anyone else experiencing this in such a real time way?  And are they all ghosts hanging out in their old houses? Or is it like they’re in another plane that Looks like how it was when they lived?  How can they see me and know what I’m thinking? What about people who go straight to heaven? I don’t understand how this is possible.  Yet it’s becoming more and more a part of my daily life! And what they tell me proves itself to be true.  Can you help me grasp where they are? And how they can see and hear ME? Did mom have something to do with this sudden ancestral connection? It literally began the day she died.”
Gina had not heard of anyone else doing this, although of course this is something I’ve done regularly over the years.  One of my recent experiences involved my being interrupted on a rather busy day, on March 17, 2021, as I was preparing go get ready for our IMEC Open Tables episode the next day.  I was scrambling at the 11th hour to prepare for a guest on our show, and was redoing all the power point slides.  In the midst of all this business and mental focus, I was surprised to feel my childhood friend’s (deceased) grandmother, Margaret Hall, whom I’d never met, getting my attention by asking me very softly if I’d like to include her photo in the family genealogical records. Well, of course I would!  I’d never met this grandmother in person, since she’d passed away shortly after giving birth to my friend’s mother.  When I asked her what she had in mind, she indicated I’d be able to find it based on where she was at the time of the 1920 census.  My initial reaction was skepticism, since she lived in a large metropolitan area at the time, and her last name, Hall, was common and ubiquitous–so wouldn’t this be like finding a needle in a haystack?  After all, that’s why nobody had yet found her before.  She reassured me that with my help, I’d find her photo in her high school yearbook with no difficulty.  Because I loved her positive, charismatic energy so much, I set my afternoon tasks aside, taking a chance that maybe she was right, and she’d lead me to find that long-missing “needle in a haystack” of her yearbook and photo.  And sure enough, she indeed directly me clearly to the correct part of the large metropolitan city.  And what a jackpot I found!  There were three more photos in that yearbook of her in performance in a play she starred in.  When I reached out to inform my friend of this news, her phone line was uncharacteristically busy–but when I got through, I was thrilled to be able to share this wonderful news that felt so much like a grandmother’s love for her grandchildren, arriving (as it turned out) at exactly a time when a grandmother’s love–and long-lost missing photos–made all the difference!
when considering the relationship between timelines, Reality Shifts, and the afterlife, the common connection between all of these is awareness of conscious agency being integral to aspects of consciousness itself.  All three of these topics make more sense from the perspective of recognizing that each individual is much more than their physical body, and each individual‘s mind is much more than their brain.  There can be sensed and felt and known An identity as a being of conscious agency who is capable of contemplating decision points between timelines, and who can have continuity between physical lifetimes.  From such an identity as being a pure conscious agent, One can benefit from wisdom, experiences, and knowledge that are accessible through meditation, contemplation, dreams, and prayer.  Reality Shifts can then be known to occur when a person, in the form of conscious agent existing and pure consciousness, makes a jump from one reality to another.  Timelines can be appreciated as Forks in the Road of life, which we can sometimes choose retroactively in ways that for example, might contribute to our experiencing mysterious spontaneous remission of some supposedly incurable condition.

Where do we go when we die?

For those of us who have a memory of being aware and conscious before we were born, in a state of being called born aware, by author Diane Brandon, it is possible to have a foundational sense of awareness based in a sense of being consciousness and awareness outside of ordinary space and time.  With awareness of having come from a place of  conscious awareness prior to existing in physical form, it is not that much of a leap to acknowledge there is a sense of intrinsic being this that transcends space and time. From such a starting point, we can envision the possibility that each and everyone of us is essentially timeless.  And from such a perspective, it is not too big a leap to imagine that this is the same place, that is actually not a place, that we go when we die.

What, if anything, exists outside of the Simulation/Dreamtime?

One of the biggest questions we can ever ask is, “Why does anything exist at all?”  This point was driven home to me by the philosopher Nicholas Rescher, whose excellent book, “Axiogenesis” is one of my favorite books.  We often don’t give this question much thought, since we tend to presume that the material world is the foundation of reality itself, rather than questioning its existence.  When we consider the idea that all of reality might be some thing a kin to a dream, we are viewing the world from a philosophical perspective that has been prevalent going back thousands of years into ancient indigenous wisdom, as well as  ancient yogic  teachings from India.  there has been a long tradition throughout human cultures and civilizations acknowledging the ultimate reality that exist beyond space and time, in the form of what has been sometimes known as the dream time.  The Australian concept of the dream time is one’s strong such example, where we can acknowledge that everything that exists first begins in and comes from the dream time.

When we go within, are we accessing outside of the Simulation/Dreamtime?

When we go within, to a state of meditation, it is possible to experience the cessation of thought, movement, and change. In meditative contemplation, it is possible to gain access to higher levels of self, operating outside of normal typical daily egoic consciousness.  For those who do access these higher levels of conscious agency and conscious self, it is possible to engage in communication and conversation with other conscious agents, who have controlling access to various physical material beings, events, and forms.  There exists such a thing as an experience of nothingness, where we can appreciate a formlessness that exists but he’s form, and a changeless nurse that exists as a foundation beneath change.  this experience of nothingness is available to us through meditation, contemplation, and prayer.  This experience of nothingness provides us with a glimpse of the true reality that supports all of space and time, yet exists outside of space and time.

What is the nature of everything that exists?

We tend to focus on those material forms, and events that we can measure, such that there is some degree of objectivity by which we can reach agreement. These measureables are actually somewhat limited, in the sense that the material realism model cannot accommodate most of the existence of things that we are actually living for.  If you ask yourself what you were living for, it is highly unlikely that your authentic true answer whatever involve anything that can be absolutely measured in terms of its three-dimensional size, its shape, its weight, or its monetary value.  Sometimes people go through phases where some of these things might be given as their answer to what they are living for, but typically as people grow and mature, they come to recognize that what they are really living for involves qualities that do not lend themselves to absolute material realistic measurements.  And those same things that people would probably typically say they are living for, such as unconditional divine love, and peace, are so beloved it’s such a deep levels, that we can feel the probable truth that this indeed is the true nature of everything that exists.

Where is the Simulation/Dreamtime coming from?

The source of the simulation or dream time is one of the greatest mysteries, since intrinsically the answer is not knowable to us from outside of it, because we are so immersed within it.  Our traditional sciences can only hypothesize as to the source of the Simulation / Dreamtime, since traditional science has no means to step outside of the Simulation / Dreamtime to experimentally confirm or discount various theories.  From a purely intuitive sense, it feels to me that we might consider the Simulation / Dreamtime to arise from consciousness itself, which we are a part of.  We seem to gain clues as to how we participate in mind-matter interaction through such experiences as synchronicity, deja vu, reality shifts, and the Mandela Effect.  The Dreamtime / Simulation comes from Divine Source, Creator, God which we are all related to and connected with at a very deep level that transcends material realism, and is at the level of our pure conscious agency, spirit, or soul.

How Good Can it Get?

I hope you will join me in asking, “How good can it get?” in any and all circumstances, no matter may seem to be happening, so we may each individually and all collectively experience what is truly best for all.

2022-09-29 Cynthia angel 21
Did you know about the Shambhala prophecy, or about Rainbow Warriors helping to usher in a new Golden Age?  With some people sensing we are living in world-changing times, it seems the perfect moment to reflect on past Earth changes and interesting prophecies predicting a Golden Age, ushered in by Rainbow Warriors.
Some of us with high sense perception are noticing a wonderful availability of support from unseen realms.  It feels to me that angelic protection and guidance is extremely accessible now, and helpful for boosting our spirits if we feel down.

From Bodhisattva Blues to a Shambhala State of Mind

I recently felt sad about the overall vibe I’m picking up from collective consciousness of people in the world, and my inability to help everyone.  While I was focused on people suffering, and my seeming inability to do much about it, my blue mood felt to me a bit like Bodhisattva blues–a special kind of blues that empaths and intuitives may feel when longing to be in service for humanity, yet simultaneously feeling overwhelmed by tasks that seems bigger than what any one person can tackle.
Fortunately, I soon felt the presence of angelic guides, reminding me that ultimately, everything is all right.  And they also reminded me about Shambhala.  While some people call Shambhala fictional or mythical, the Dalai Lama acknowledges that it is a real place, although not one that is open for everyone to experience.
The 14th Dalai Lama had this to say about Shambala :
“Although those with special affiliation may actually be able to go there through their karmic connection, nevertheless it is not a physical place that we can actually find. We can only say that it is a pure land, a pure land in the human realm. And unless one has the merit and the actual karmic association, one cannot actually arrive there. “
I love feeling a Shambala state of mind–feeling revitalized and energized, with joy in knowing that when you know Shambala, you are already there.  I love feeling how close Shambala feels to my heart–and how it feels like home to me, so I delighted in finding a video featuring a song by Three Dog Night about the Road to Shamballa.  I love the dancing, smiling people in this video–even when a mountain road encounters a rock slide, and their bus comes to a stop.  People remember that love is here, and that we are love, and with this memory comes joy and peace–and Shambala comes to us!  I love the way this video shows people faced with roadblocks (literally), realizing that heaven is here, and we might as well feel the love and joy and dance!
And today, on September 29th, Michaelmas, I am feeling extra joy in recognizing this special celebration in honor of Archangel Michael and all archangels, at this time following the Autumn equinox, when days become shorter, and there is a sense of relying upon divine love, inspiration and protection when we face whatever might trouble us in any way.

Coral Reefs and Mass Extinctions

Mass Extinctions and Coral Reef GrowthMy seventh grade science report was memorable for me because our science teacher promised us that anyone courageous enough to give an oral report was guaranteed an “A” grade for the assignment. I was very shy, so I asked if it would be OK for me to pre-record an audio tape of myself reading my report (rather than actually giving the oral report in front of the class), and my instructor replied that would be fine, as long as I stood in front of the class next to the tape recorder while the audio tape was playing.  I agreed, and shared my report about coral reefs.  A key feature of my 7th grade science report was a large visual representation I had drawn, showing regular mass die-offs that have occurred on the planet Earth over many years.  I was fascinated by the way these huge changes have occurred with some degree of regularity, yet at that time back in the 1970s, most people did not much contemplate or discuss these radical changes to plant and animal life that have occurred here on Earth in the past.  I was also impressed by the fact that it looked like another cataclysmic change might be coming in the not-too-distant future, based on the regularity of these massive changes on Earth.

Hopi Prophecy of Seven Worlds

ComesTrue1In spring 2000, I published an article for Parabola magazine, “Comes True, being Hoped for: the Hopi understanding of how things change.”  In this article, I share the Hopi conceptualization of the time periods on earth we have experienced so far, and the prophecy of what we may expect in the future.  According to the Hopi legend, before any of the worlds were created, there was only the Creator, Taiowa.
The first world of endless space, Tokpela, was beautiful, spacious, and perfect in every way.  The people were of different colors and spoke different languages; they could understand one another easily without talking, as could they also converse with the animals without talking. After a long time of peaceful coexistence, many people became preoccupied with the differences between themselves and others, and forgot to respect their Creator and each other, and the world was destroyed by volcanic fire.  Before this first world was destroyed, the Hopi followed a cloud of vapor by day and a star by night, and were led to be assisted by the Ant people who opened their subterranean mound to keep the Hopi safe.
When the Earth had cooled down, people emerged from the underground safety of the Ant peoples’ Kiva, into the second world of dark midnight, Tokpa.  In the second world, the people no longer lived simply with animals, and they began to develop handcrafts homes and villages.  Trouble began in this second world when people traded in bartered for more and more goods, forgetting to sing praises to the Creator, and singing praises for their goods instead.  People who still had songs for the Creator in their hearts were once again led underground to the safety of the Ant peoples Kiva, before the twins left their magnetic positions at the north and south poles, so the Earth tilted crazily on her access, and froze into solid ice.
Next began the Third World, Kuskurza, which was full of big cities and amazing technologies such as flying shields made of hide which could attack and flee other cities so quickly that nobody knew who sent them.  There was so much warfare that Spider Woman saw that the thread had run out on this third world, and she put people who still had a song in their hearts safely in the sealed reed boats with water and white cornmeal, before the Earth was destroyed by floods.  The Hopi emerged from their sealed vessels to build reed rafts which they then paddled from one stepping Stone Island to the next.
They finally arrived at the low hot shore of this world complete, Tuwaqachi, after having migrated across the Earth to settle where they live today.  The Hopi believe we will see the signs of the emergence to the Fifth world when life forms from previous worlds spring up from the ground, the stars, and our hearts.

Cree Rainbow Warrior Prophecy

There is a prophecy called Warriors of the Rainbow, from the Cree tribe. Dr. Leilani Fuller Anderson, also known as the Cherokee Lady, remembers being told about this prophecy by her grandmother when she was very young.  In this prophecy, there was an old lady from the Cree tribe, named Eyes of Fire, who prophesied that one day, because of the white man’s greed, there will come a time when the fish would die in the streams, the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, and the trees would no longer be.  Human civilization as we know it today would all but cease to exist.
There will then come a time when keepers of the legends, stories, culture, rituals, and myths, and all ancient customs would be needed to restore the world to health. These keepers would be mankind‘s key to survival.  They are known as the Warriors of the Rainbow.  Peoples of all the tribes would form a new world of justice, peace, freedom, and recognition of the great spirit.  The Warriors of the rainbow would teach people how to live the way of the great spirit.  They would tell them of how the world has turned away from the great spirit, and that is why earth became sick.  Warriors of the rainbow will show people that the Great Spirit is full of love and understanding, and they will teach people how to make the Earth beautiful again.  Principles of unity, love, and understanding will be taught in all four corners of the Earth.
Those working to bring such revitalization must be dedicated, unwavering in their strength, and strong of heart.  They will find willing hearts and minds to join them on the road of returning Mother Earth to beauty and plenty.  This is a Cree prophecy; there are also similar prophecies from the Hopi, Zuni, and others.

Shambhala Prophecy

In Tibet and Mongolia, there is a prophecy about the kingdom of Shambala, hidden behind the distant mountainous north of the Himalaya. Shambhala is known as the ‘land of a thousand names’ and called: Shangri-La; the land of Radiant Spirits; Land of the Living Gods; Land of Wonders.  This mystical kingdom has been described in Hindu and Buddhist mythology for thousands of years.  “Shambhala” in Sanskrit translates to ‘place of calm’ or ‘place of stillness.’  Like a parallel world or dimension, this place has been described in Tibetan prophecy.
According to legend, the line of enlightened kings is said to be guarding the highest wisdom for a time when all spiritual values in the world outside will be lost in war and destruction. Then, according to prophecy, a great king will come out of the sanctuary to defeat the forces of evil and to establish a Golden Age.  According to the legend and prophecy, the kings of Shambala will rule for 100 years each.  There will be 32 kings in all, and as their reigns pass, conditions in the outside world deteriorate.  Men will become more warlike, and pursue power for its own sake.  An ideology of materialism will spread over the earth.  When the barbarians who follow this materialistic ideology are united under an evil king, and they think there is nothing left to conquer, the mists will lift to reveal the icy mountains of Shambala.  The barbarians will then see and attack Shambala with a huge army equipped with terrible weapons. Then the 32nd king of Shambala will lead a mighty host against the invaders. In the last great battle, the evil king and his followers will be destroyed.
By definition Shambala is hidden. It is thought to exist somewhere between the Gobi desert in the Himalayas, where it is protected by a psychic barrier, so that no one can find the kingdom who is not meant to.  Tibetans believe that the land is guarded by beings with superhuman powers.  Tibetan llamas spend a great deal of their lives in spiritual development before attempting a journey to Shambala.  Those who try to get there who are not wanted are swallowed by crevasses, or caught in avalanches.  People and animals tremble at its borders as if bombarded by invisible rays.  There are guide books to Shambala, but they describe the location in terms so vague that only those already initiated into the teachings of the Kalacakra can understand them. Strange sightings in the area where Shambala is thought to be seen provide evidence of its existence.

Creating Positive Future with the Mandela Effect

At this time of great changes on earth, and awareness of long extinct Lazarus plants and animals returning, we gain a sense that we may now be living through the long prophesied time of transformation and change, and dawning of the golden age. if we seek some kind of mechanism by which extinct animals can be alive again, we come face-to-face with what is now known as the Mandela effect. The Mandela affect itself gets its name from people noticing that nelson Mandela was alive again, after many of us remember that he had previously died while incarcerated.  There is a connection between the symbolism of the rainbow, and the rainbow warriors, and I kind of hope we can feel when we see something as miraculous as the return of long extinct plants and animals. We are indeed seeing that now, with many previously extinct creatures back as if they had never been gone. we need not credit their return within a cleverness of humans, but instead we can feel a sense of awe and reverence for God… for the Creator.  By sharing our experiences with noticing and observing the Mandela effect, we can be part of ushering in a Golden Age.  We can see signs in new blue plants and animals (the color blue corresponding to the 5th chakra, and thus the Fifth world); and in rainbows that we see more often in the sky, in trees, and in plants and animals.
It is understandable in these times of transformation and change, that sometimes we will feel sad, frightened, or angry; these emotions are perfectly understandable.  Any time we notice ourselves getting stuck in any of these heavy emotions, we can remember to feel a sense of awe, thanks, and reverence to God, the creator. This is perhaps the greatest task offered to us, if we wish to except it. The task is simply to stand up for what we know to be right, and good, and true. The task is to remember to the very core of our being what we most love and cherish. The task is to be in highest service each day to the best of our ability. each of us has the ability to feel and no higher truth, through soft eyes, loving heart, and clear mind. each of us has the ability to walk in peace, love, and grace through all events and circumstance. each of us has the ability to help someone close to us.
In all these little ways, we have the ability to be part of the prophecy of Shambhala and the rainbow Warriors at the dawning of this Golden Age of the Fifth World.

2022-08-20 Cynthia TikTok RS
I first heard about the booming TikTok reality shifting trend in early 2020, when my daughter told me that realityshifting–my life’s work–was taking the world by storm on TikTok!   Investigating further, I saw how TikTok realityshifting videos were primarily focused on lucid dreaming and astral traveling their way into focused imaginal realms.  These can be good skills to hone, as part of an integrated approach of developing one’s character and spirituality. My take on goals of focusing on lucid dreaming as a way to experience imaginal realms via this TikTok version of reality shifting is that can potentially veer into escapism. If utilized as a kind of lucid dreaming skill practice on a spiritual path within imaginal realms, there may be some value in becoming proficient with these skill-sets.

TikTok Reality Shifting Techniques

Some TikTok channels invite viewers to practice entering into lucid dream states via various techniques that encourage relaxation of the physical body while maintaining lucidity of the conscious mind.  One such technique being popularized now is called “star fish,” with the main idea of this lucid dreaming position being to keep one’s arms and legs stretched out and not touching, a bit like impersonating a star fish, with the five points represented by:  head, two arms, and two legs.
Many TikTok reality shifters work with scripts that keep their lucid dreaming reality shifting focused.  Often, such a focus is held in imagination while keeping the rational, analytical mind occupied with some activity such as counting backwards from 100.  The so-called “Raven method” starts with adopting the starfish position, and then counting down from 100 while keeping mentally focused on shifting into one’s desired reality.
These TikTok techniques help realityshifters access levels of identity that are more foundational–more true–than seeing ourselves as existing purely within a paradigm of physicalist material realism.  Just as people can learn to astral travel and gain a sense of self identity beyond egoic physicalism through meditation, or going to a facility such as provided at the Monroe Institute, practicing putting one’s body in a position so that arms and legs are not touching while feeling tired can help facilitate moving into a state of higher level conscious agency.

Reality Shifting key ideas

We are all reality shifters, occasionally noticing things seem to move without anyone having moved them.  We may have noticed socks missing after we do the laundry, or keys or coat not being where we know we put them. We also sometimes notice we have different experiences and memories of experiences than those of other people who were also there.
We, as conscious agents and observers, are the ones who shift or change, and we witness different physical realities.  We can ascribe reality shifts and Mandela Effects to our ability to move between levels of observer identity and causal agency.  If seeking some ‘mechanism’ behind these shifts, we can note the possibility that the many worlds of quantum physics and the cosmological multiverse may be one and the same–providing us with occasional quantum superpowers such as:  bilocation, tunneling, superposition of states, coherence, and entanglement.
Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World

Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World

Our experiences with reality shifts are natural, and can be appreciated as an experience of consciousness. I suggest remaining reverent toward all aspects of the reality shift phenomena, with respect for encountering and aligning with ever-higher levels of self. reality shifting truly invites us to ‘bring our A game’ to life, in terms of becoming ever more aware of who we are, as intentional beings and conscious agents.

I’ve been documenting and curating first-hand reality shift reports for over twenty years, investigating what people were thinking and feeling prior to witnessing reality shifts–and the archives of Your Stories on the realityshifters web site is now hundreds of pages long, containing first-hand reports from people in dozens of nations and on continents all around the world.
For those starting out writing scripts for their desired reality, or creating affirmations and vision boards, all these focusing tools can be good starting points for overcoming social conditioning that has gas-lighted “magickal thinking,” as I mention in my book, Reality Shifts. Our assumptions and beliefs play such a huge role in creating our perceptual framework that playing with these initial focusing tools and methods can help people realize the true power of consciousness to literally create seeming miracles in physical events in spacetime.
If you have concerns regarding safety with trying reality shifting, I suggest adopting a practice of setting energetic protection that incorporates the focus of intention on maintaining sovereignty of your conscious agency, free from negative interference.  Such a practice can simply consist of several simple Qi Gong (energy work) exercises that combine intention with breath and movement to help ensure you feel your best, and that what you experience in your reality shifting exercises feels enjoyable and positive.

Reality Shifting is part of the Great Awakening

With the recent reality shifting TikTok trend, I see resonance with this time of Great Awakening. To put it another way, through ‘writing scripts’ for desired reality shifts, people can witness positive results, and thus begin to override a lifetime of socially conditioned restrictive thinking regarding the chicken-and-egg Zen koan between consciousness and the physical world. We may wonder which came first–the chicken or the egg? And similarly, some scientists are designing experiments to ascertain whether consciousness or neurons and brains arrived first.
Thanks to first-hand experimentation with reality shifting, people have a chance to witness how when we change our consciousness, we see changes in the physical world.
I see some beauty in the encouragement from some TikTokers to those feeling frustrated and discouraged with lack of perceived progress in lucid dreaming and reality shifting–and I sense a similarity here between reality shifting and the Kundalini experience. Both of these are guided by levels of higher conscious agency–by higher levels of self–and this is why both journeys are so individual and unique.
My first impression of this trend when I first saw it a few years ago was a mix of joy to see people interested in the topic, combined with a concern that people may fixate on escapism–the way some people fixate on “manifesting” as a be-all, end-all. Any such short-sighted approaches will eventually lead to disappointing results, though it’s likely that many people need to go down every detour and dead-end first, just to make sure they’re not missing out on something. I have faith that just as with other types of “psychonauts,” there is divine spirit guiding all of us, and ultimately, people will discover that this reality shifting journey is best appreciated and enjoyed as a spiritual journey.
And I hope you will join me in asking, “How good can it get?” in any and all circumstances, no matter may seem to be happening, so we may each individually and all collectively experience what is truly best for all.

2022-07-26 CSL blues
Have you wondered if there is any way to prove the Mandela Effect is real, and not simply mis-remembering?  If so, you’re in luck, since scientists have just made significant progress in this area, in the same month that CERN fired up their Large Hadron Collider, sparking great interest in what effect, if any, this may have on Mandela Effect activity.
I’m grateful to have been contacted by Jason Koebler, a reporter for VICE Motherboard, who wrote an excellent article, Is CERN Causing Collective Mass Delusion by Creating Portals to Alternate Dimensions? An Investigation.
The ever-increasing interest in the topic of the Mandela Effect seems to have come to quite a peak this July 2022, with the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) firing back up on July 5th.  I have been watching to see whether we might witness an increase in new Mandela Effects being reported this month.  So far, I’ve not yet heard of people noticing remarkably new Mandela Effects, though I am witnessing a steady increase of interest in this topic.
Apparently, some physicists at CERN, including Clara Nellist, expressed concern regarding the surge of people’s concerns that CERN might somehow be contributing to the Mandela Effect.  While Nellist calls the Mandela Effect “mis-remembering,” this article’s author, Jason Koebler, recognizes that the Mandela Effect phenomenon is verifiably real.  Koebler references recent research studies conducted at the University of Chicago that describe an emperically observable phenomenon that persisted across many people with no clear explanation.

University of Chicago Mandela Effect Research

Fig 1 which image is realResearchers found that “there are certain images that elicit a specific false memory, despite high familiarity and confidence.” Their research study demonstrated that “seven familiar images from popular iconography have low memory accuracy, with a specific incorrect version consistently remembered across people.” These findings indicate that there is something about these logos that are being misremembered by large numbers of people for unknown reasons.  The pre-print of the University of Chicago paper is entitled, The Visual Mandela Effect as evidence for shared and specific false memories across people.
Fig 9 VME errorsIn their research paper, psychologists Wilma Bainbridge and Deepasri Prasad describe how they asked volunteers to identify famous logos or characters based on their memories, working with research volunteers through Amazon Turk. Prasad and Bainbridge showed study participants the actual logos and characters in lineups of slightly manipulated images, and then asked the participants to rate how much confidence they had in whether their specific memory of that logo or character was correct.  
What’s most fascinating about this research study is that the study participants proved that indeed, random research volunteers share a collective false memory of popular brands, logos, and characters–choosing the exact same ‘wrong’ images as the one that they remembered as being correct.  These ‘wrong’ renditions were selected and drawn even when people reported that they had a “high familiarity” with the image in question.
Not only did people pick out the same ‘wrong’ images from line-ups, but they also independently drew similarly ‘wrong’ images from memory, with the same ‘wrong’ characteristics.  While the researchers do not yet propose a mechanism by which this Mandela Effect phenomenon occurs, they suggest that “there might not be a universal explanation for why the Visual Mandela Effect occurs.”
When contemplating CERN and the Mandela Effect, as when considering just about anything, I recommend asking at every opportunity, “How good can it get?”

2022-07-26 CSL QJ AA AA2This past month, it came to my attention that a passage from one of my books that I’d received the most emails about is now–and apparently always has been–missing.  By missing, I mean I can find no trace of it anywhere.  And it seems likely to me that it’s gone missing for many years.
Aura AdvantageYou might well wonder why I would say such thing, let alone wonder how such a thing could be possible.  I’ll start by describing how this matter first came to my attention this past week.  I’d received a couple of emails from two different authors, and both email conversations prompted me to mention a certain memorable section from my book, Aura Advantage.  This was a very unique and unusual section of the book, where I describe how one day, I heard my salad telepathically communicate with me.  I used to get emails each year, up until maybe seven years ago or so, from people who were disturbed by the idea that salad might be sentient.  Typically, these readers had explained to me that they were vegetarians or vegans, and also that they were first startled and then somewhat horrified at the thought of anyone conversing with vegetables before eating them.  People are not writing to me anymore regarding this concern, and they haven’t written emails to me about this for many years now.  It seems the reason might be that my books no longer have anything like this in any of them.  That now-missing passage had been part of my book from when the first edition was published in 2003, up until possibly 2015–and I only noticed it’s missing this past month.
I next wondered if perhaps I might have been confused by thinking the missing passage was part of another book I’d written, so I carefully searched the original text files for all my books, including Reality Shifts and Quantum Jumps, and found no such passage anywhere.  When all logical possibilities were exhausted, the remaining leading explanation for what occurred is that my book has experienced a reality shift, such that now I just have memories that there once was a paragraph describing how my salad ‘spoke’ to me telepathically, and how reading this one paragraph used to be upsetting to some people to the point that they would write to me.
I’d love to hear from you if you remember reading such a passage in my book, so we can gain a sense of what people remember this missing passage used to say, and what you remember about it.  By sharing what you recall, if anything, we can gain further insights regarding how these kinds of reality shifts and Mandela Effects occur.

Quantum Jumps book changed

Quantum JumpsThis isn’t the first time I’ve noticed that something I wrote has changed, such that all I had was my memory of what I’d originally written and that was published in the book.  The first time I noticed that this had happened was when I was preparing to give my talk for the 2019 International Mandela Effect Conference in Idaho.  While preparing to give my talk, I wanted to include the short explanatory passage I’d included in Quantum Jumps where I provided insights to what is illustrated on the cover of the book–including a link between the very small world of quantum physics, and the physics of the very large cosmological galaxies, stars, and planets.  I was amazed that this passage was completely missing when I prepared my talk, and grateful that I’d be talking about the very phenomenon that could help explain it, to an open-minded audience who was genuinely interested in the Mandela Effect and reality shifts such as this:  The Science and History of Reality Shifts and Mandela Effects.
The change to Quantum Jumps would have happened between the time it was first published in 2013 and 2019 when I noticed it missing.  I’ve not (yet) seen it return to the book, but that is a distinct possibility, and something I’ll be happy to see if and when it ever happens. What I remember this passage stating is something like this:
As physicists Leonard Susskind and Raphael Bousso have suggested, the many-worlds interpretation of quantum physics and the cosmological multiverse are one and the same thing. 
The omission of a paragraph connecting the quantum and relativistic physics is a strikingly obvious change to the book for me.  It’s something so noteworthy that it’s hard for me not to notice.  If you remember that there used to be such an explanatory statement in Quantum Jumps, please contact me and let me know, since through such individual subjective observations with whatever details you remember, there is much we can learn about reality shifts and the Mandela Effect.
When contemplating how the Mandela Effect may be affecting books, as when doing pretty much anything, I recommend asking at every opportunity, “How good can it get?”

2022-07-05 CynthiaAt this evolutionary time featuring ever-increasing challenges, we can best survive and thrive through improving intuitive discernment.
One of the key fundamental organizing concepts learned by Medical school students is balancing sensitivity versus specificity.  Sensitivity represents the likelihood that a test can and will detect what is looking to find, while specificity represents the likelihood that “false positives” will not occur while seeking to detect something.  There is a trade-off between sensitivity and specificity, with best results occurring when setting acceptable threshold levels to ensure optimal results.
The topic of sensitivity versus specificity recently came to my attention in the article, Spiritual Considerations in Medical Ethics by A Midwestern Doctor from The Forgotten Side of Medicine.
Within medicine, many medical decisions are made based on sensitivity and specificity (although they are rarely described by this terminology). For example, the reason why a doctor checks your cholesterol and your blood pressure is because if either of those is too high, it may increase your risk of dying over time. However, the risk dramatically varies as different human beings have different ideal cholesterol and blood pressure levels. For example in older adults, their arteries tend to calcify and thus require more pressure to move blood through their system. For these patients, higher blood pressure is thus a necessary physiologic compensation of the body, and commonly when their blood pressure is lowered with medications to bring it into the “ideal range,“ the reduced blood flow to the brain will cause those patients to pass out and seriously injure themselves (this is a very common pharmaceutical injury in the elderly). 
A Midwestern Doctor continues to explore how and where to choose whether to maximize sensitivity–or specificity.
In modern medicine, there has been a consistent bias to continually lower the cut-off points for sensitivity and specificity, and over the years using blood pressure as an example, the acceptable threshold has been repeatedly lowered. As a result, many individuals who are told they absolutely must take blood pressure medicines or have an immediate risk of dying, fifty years ago would not have even been considered candidates for blood pressure medications.  
As you might have guessed, this bias is a result of pharmaceutical corruption within medicine, because as thresholds are lowered, this makes more individuals eligible for drugs and thereby causes more and more to be sold. One of the best examples is statins being recommended for everyone to lower healthy cholesterol levels on the basis of non-existent evidence voted through by committees composed of scientists taking money from statin companies. The continually increasing sensitivity for requiring “preventive” medicines leads to the curious tradition we have now where the majority of the population is on multiple medications, many of which do not benefit the patients and in combination significantly increase the likelihood of death or disability for the patient. 

Discernment

I’ve been aware of the value of sensitivity and specificity to science, where sensitivity contributes to brilliant field observations by Biologists capable of documenting events that could not have been witnessed without the presence of someone willing to transcend pre-existing assumptions and beliefs.  Some of the world’s best naturalists, such as America’s John Muir, wrote:
“Most people are on the world, not in it — have no conscious sympathy or relationship to anything about them — undiffused, separate, and rigidly alone like marbles of polished stone, touching but separate.”
Mankind has become master of specificity, sometimes to such a degree that we lose touch with our inner spiritual core and sense of meaning, purpose, and connection to others.  In our quest for certainty, we have risked losing our ability to trust our own hearts, minds, souls, and spirits.
For those of us who have been in need of support from others when in incredibly complex, unique, complicated situations, we hopefully had the benefit of witnessing the kindness, compassion, and discernment of those capable of perceiving our specific needs–through the broader lens of sensitivity.

Two Step Process

We can hone our intuitive discernment by alternating between optimal Sensitivity and Specificity.   Sensitivity provides us with the ability to sense things we didn’t even know we were looking for, and we can develop this deep listening capability by regularly practicing mind-clearing meditation exercises.  Mind clearing practice can just take a few minutes, during which time any thoughts or feelings that arrive are immediately cleared away.  This kind of mental clearing practice can take the form of imagining a clear blue sky with no intrusive thoughts–or clouds.  The moment thoughts–or clouds–arrive, one simply clears the sky back to blue sky again.
One of my favorite Specificity training exercises is simply a matter of asking High Self / Divine Guidance, “What message do you have for me right now?” or “What can I best be doing right now?”  The goal of this exercise is to receive very specific information that is timely, useful, and inspirational.  It may be primarily practical, and that can be excellent!  Such information might feel like you are receiving a kind of download, which is also just fine.  You can trust that you have what you need, and that you will continue to have what you need each step of the way.
Putting these two steps together of Sensitivity followed by Specificity can feel a lot like taking one step, and then another.  By going back and forth between the two, tremendously improved intuitive discernment is possible that is fully capable of addressing whatever situations arise.
And of course I also recommend asking at every opportunity, “How good can it get?”

2022-06-06 Cynthia 15Amidst obvious chaotic transformational worldwide changes, what’s less evident is how the new world will differ from what we’re currently experiencing.
While I was mulling this over, a friend informed me that she’d just had a dream with me.  We’d been setting up a table for some kind of event being held in a courtyard in England, when I walked out to a central place featured with red dirt, and suddenly the Earth opened up and I began to fall into a deepening chasm with spiky stalagmites down below.  In the dream, my friend moved as if in slow motion, and managed to catch me and pull me back up to safe ground.  We did our best to create a warning barrier so people wouldn’t fall into the hole, but some children were playing on some terraced steps that emerged around the edges of the hole.
I told my friend that if this was my dream, I’d do a four-step analysis process on it, starting with the full narrative she provided (a fair bit more detailed than my brief summary above), then separating out every significant dream element, then free-associating what those dream elements mean to me, and then putting together a narrative based on the free association.  The end result of that was:
Good friends, supported by deep foundations of loving family travel on an adventure together to a large community gathering event and experience.  The friends are well prepared for this adventure, with strong foundations and support–and with assurance that this adventure will be protected, with any possible adverse events being cushioned along the way.  Thanks to the presence of angelic support, protection, inspiration and guidance, healing and balance is possible throughout.  As the friends reach out to communicate with the rest of those around, it becomes clear that something big and central is about to happen that involves native indigenous wisdom and Mother Earth/Gaia herself.  This is a time of breakdown and breakthrough–a time of awakening through some shocking developments that catch people by surprise, with sudden revelation of deep chasms of subconscious issues appearing suddenly.  The nature of how this is felt is between the 4th and 5th energy centers–moving from heart to throat–requiring mastery of respect and communication with all conscious agents (people, animals, plants, angels, God, Earth). A process of coordinating collective subconscious issues now begins, sometimes being felt in uniquely subjective ways in space and time.  Thanks to supporting one another, and sharing information, safe passage can be made.  New generations can thus flourish in the new 5th world. 

Choosing Revhumanism at the Dawning of the 5th World

This topic of the dawning of the Fifth World, and the global awakening to the Golden Age feels like the long-awaited crossroads that humanity has been expecting for millennia.  This long-prophesied decision point has been visually depicted as a choice between two paths that is carved in stone on the Hopi Prophecy Rock near Oraibi, Arizona.  The two options can be known by the names:  Transhumanism and Revhumanism.
Revhumanism is a philosophy of harmoniously living and co-creating with a living, developing Cosmos—with reverence for the Earth, and other beings.  The Latin “rev” relates to ideas of reviving, regaining, recalling, and growing strong and young again. “Rev” also stands for reverence—a quality that inspires us to live up to our truly highest potential of seeing and respecting the inspiration, light, and consciousness that all of creation shares. Revhumanism invites humans to return to honoring the Earth as the source of life and sustenance.

AmplituhedronSpaceTime is Dead

In a conversation we had recently for the International Mandela Effect Conference with Dr. Donald Hoffman, I’m inspired to hear that he is noticing some scientists declaring that space-time is dead. On the face of it, this may not seem like such an important statement to make. And it might seem meaningless, or ridiculous, or impossible. To most material realists, that would indeed be the case.
Dr. Donald Hoffman is not the kind of scientist who believes that consciousness arises from neural activity, but rather he asserts it is very much the other way around.  Space-time is dead precisely because the mathematics and science to support an assumption that all of reality is based on material matter is overly complicated, and inadequately elegant. Ever since the discovery of some new foundational mathematics involving geometry’s that we have yet to fully comprehend, we can see that there must exist some thing prior to what we know is space and time. The amplituhedron is evidence of a much more elegant mathematics and underlying physics to the cosmos.

Consciousness is Fundamental

Physicist Max Planck has been quoted as saying that you cannot get behind consciousness, and that consciousness if fundamental. When we start from such an understanding of reality, it becomes clear that this must be the case.  Within this realm of consciousness, we know ourselves to be conscious agents.  This idea of conscious agency is one we can experience every time we see a newborn baby’s smile.
This idea of conscious agency can also give us a clue about where humans can next evolve.  We are at across roads at this time when some people imagine taking their consciousness into some kind of electronic cloud where it can be transferred ad infinitum to an ultimately endless string of robotic artificial intelligence host vehicles. This notion of trans humanism casts some kind of seductive spell for many material realists.  For those of us who have a sense of consciousness that exists before we are born and after we die, the idea of fundamental conscious agency presents breathtakingly positive possibilities for us all.
I feel a sense of connection, optimism, compassion and support when I greet the conscious agency that I feel in birds trees and other plants and animals.  This past year I have made friends with a squirrel who has brought the best apples on the tree to me, and a gopher who is working on soil improvement programs in the garden. There is a scrub Jay who flies into my garden when I am outside, and sometimes rests on the closest tree branch next to me. When I lovingly care for redwood trees at the edge of my property on hot days, I feel a sense of love and connection between the trees and myself, and quite often weather patterns change.  In some cases a dry spell ends, and much-needed rain arrives.  These connections that I feel so closely in my heart seem to me to be a manager of one conscious agent recognizing another.  Through such respectful connections and communications, I can feel the beginning of a new world.
For those seeking the science behind relationships of conscious agents, we are just now at the Dawn of this new golden age. Philosophers, mathematicians, physicist, and consciousness researchers have much to discuss. We can see the beckoning wonder of the amplituhedron, with its breathtakingly elegant mathematics.

Prepare to Exit the Machine

This period of time in human history seems especially turbulent and divisive, with many discerning people noticing that some people are “trusting the science” and coming to very different conclusions than other people who say that they are also “trusting the science.”  Wherever your trust has been or currently resides, we can all hone our skills of intuitive discernment to ensure that decisions we make in our personal lives reflect what we are truly living for, who and what we genuinely love and care about, and what we honestly need and require.
We can co-create a new world together, thanks to respecting relationships that acknowledge that we are conscious agents, who exist at a deeper level of reality than spacetime.  We can work together harmoniously on this co-creation aligning the neural centers in our brains, our hearts, and our guts–so that each one of us can know and feel that what we need and love and desire.  We can ensure we are living a life of reverence with ourselves and one another and all of our relations, so we can co-create a beautiful world based on heart-felt genuine connections.
And for the very best results, I recommend that we remind one another and ourselves to initiate and maintain positive onward-and-upward intentional guidance by asking, “How good can it get?” every day and in every situation.

An attitude of optimism is a revolutionary act.  It has the power—through imagination—to introduce miraculous transformation and change. Just as a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, a journey into our best possible reality begins with a single question: “How good can it get?”
Optimism is a rebellious act because this attitude often flies in the face of adopting an attitude of fearfulness that is typically encouraged by our governments and societies.  Optimism is perhaps the most rebellious when adopted even when situations truly are looking genuinely scary, and clear and present danger has arrived.

Optimism as Ultimate Survival Skill

How is it possible that an attitude of optimism might be the ultimate survival skill?  Author Jeff Bollow tells us that yes, that’s exactly what optimism is.  He adds that when you start to deliberately improve your optimism skills, the rewards will be phenomenal. There is a logic to this, since where you are today and where you want to be are literally in two different worlds–and at each decision point, every single day, we are either resisting or supporting some future unknown.  How we greet the unknown has everything to do with what actually happens next in our lives.
We see some evidence of optimism being an ultimate survival skill, since optimists improved quality of life, while also tending to live longer.   A study in 2004 of nearly 1,000 people found that optimists have a 23% reduction of the risk of heart disease, and a 55% reduction in all causes of death.  A meta analysis of 15 studies including 229,391 individuals found that optimism was associated with lower risk of cardiovascular events, and pessimism was associated with higher risk of cardiovascular events, on par with other well-established risk factors.

How Much of an Optimist Are You?

I began a talk about the Mandela Effect by acknowledging the importance of attitude for exploration–whether we’re going back in time to join Charles Darwin on his voyage aboard his ship the Beagle, or welcoming reality shifts, Mandela Effects and quantum jumps into our lives.  Those intrepid adventurers who truly love the unknown are adopting an attitude of greeting the unknown future with open arms.  Another word for this attitude is Optimism.
You can get a sense of where you naturally tend to be on the optimism scale that goes from maximum resistance to maximum support of the unknown:
  1. Cynicism — “Everything is bad, doomed, and untrustworthy.”
  2. Pessimism — “Things are likely to have negative results.”
  3. Realism — “Things just are what they are.”
  4. Optimism — “Things are likely to have positive results.”
  5. Idealism — “Everything will work out brilliantly.”

Increase Happiness Chemicals

happiness chemicalsSo now that we are seeing increasing evidence to suggest that a mindset of optimism is associated with lower cardiovascular risk, it’s possible to realize that encouraging optimism can play an essential role in our health and wellbeing.
It’s possible to move to a position of greater optimism, by increasing such happiness chemicals as: Dopamine, Oxytocin, Serotin, and Endorphin.  We can  feel pleased with completing tasks and celebrating little things with Dopamine; we can be playful, kind and loving to enjoy Oxytocin; we can meditate and enjoy nature to benefit from Serotonin, and we can laugh or exercise to release pain-inhibiting Endorphins.
For best results, I recommend that we remind one another and ourselves to initiate and maintain positive onward-and-upward intentional guidance by asking, “How good can it get?” every day and in every situation.

2022-05-01 Cynthia 2If reality is different for each of us, and our thoughts and feelings influence our physical reality, how can we best employ an attitude of optimism in the real world–especially when surrounded by those who are not optimistic?
I received an intriguing email question this past month:
I was listening to a 2 or 3 year-old presentation by Bashar (channeled by Darryl Anka) as I was driving home, where Bashar essentially said the following:  (1) We are each creating our own, unique simulation – that has similar core reality to the one everybody else is experiencing.  (2) Our simulated reality is actually a series of parallel realities that changes billions of times per second – giving us an illusion of movement and time – however each frame is fixed. This is similar to the Many Worlds interpretation of Quantum Mechanics, but we don’t take all possible paths. (3) Instead, our frequency determines our path through the parallel worlds.  (4) Even our core/common simulated reality is splitting into at least two worlds. And, even though we are in the world of the lower vibe peeps, we are not of the world. That is, we can witness the lower vibe peeps … and their supporting cast – but it’s like we are watching them through a thick glass window. They don’t affect us — unless we choose to be affected.”
(1) We are each experiencing our own individual subjective realities, though we tend to assume that everyone is experiencing everything exactly as we are–yet when we really look more closely at this, we can see for sure this is not true.  I’ve researched and written about how it’s evident that we experience different realities from those around us–including people who are right with us when events unfold.  I’ve shared examples of this in my book, Reality Shifts, where I have had conversations with people where information was relayed that they swear they never said–and people have heard me say things I know for sure I did not say.
 
(2) We are continually receiving invitations to experience vast multitudes of possible realities in every moment–yet we seldom consciously recognize all of the choices we truly have.  This is the premise I describe in my book, Quantum Jumps.
 
(3) I have experienced that a combination of energetic attitudinal ‘vibe’ with level of consciousness together determine my path through the multitudes of possible parallel worlds.  The energetic attitude is something like feeling thankful and reverent, while the levels of consciousness have to do with awareness of “how big” or “how small” one is at any given moment in time.  So I’ve noticed two important, complementary qualities of self at play, that taken together can make a huge, sometimes startling, impact on reality.  At lower vibratory emotional levels, and when feeling smaller, effects can seem so small as to be nearly invisible or non-existent.
 
(4) We can sometimes bring people with us.  When we interact with others who are seeing clear evidence of some situation–such as a broken dishwasher, or a dog who seems to have cataracts–we have opportunities to acknowledge that “even though it looks, sounds, and smells like this dishwasher is broken,” we know we need it to be just fine right now.  We can thus invite those of us around us who wish to share our joyful intention, while doing that beautiful combination of staying high vibe while simultaneously feeling a sense of certainty and need in our gut that we are selecting the reality we need to–and already are large enough to– experience.  We can thus bring others with us into desired realities where what we know we need is what is actually unfolding, regardless what it looked like.  This kind of moving through doorways of possibility is the fine art of making Quantum Jumps.  I see from ancient teachings of yogi masters, Tibetan Buddhist meditation masters, martial arts masters, and Buddha and Jesus Christ that these kinds of miracles have been happening consistently for thousands of years.  We may notice them more right now, and this is a time of the birth of the 5th world, as predicted and prophesized, but from my direct experience, this can be a beautiful experience by which some of us can grab the hands of our loved ones and show them, “Yes, we know it sometimes LOOKS like a horrible situation, but actually, everything is fine.”  And this is how we enter the dawning of this 5th world. 

Dawning of the 5th World

We can see some signs of the dawning of a Golden Age, when we see animals turning gold, or new golden animals and plants we’ve never seen before.  We can see signs of this great change also in the return of animals and plants long presumed to be extinct.  We’re coming together all around the world, learning and growing together, and sharing inspiration and insights.
For best results, I recommend that we remind one another and ourselves to initiate and maintain positive onward-and-upward intentional guidance by asking, “How good can it get?” every day and in every situation.
