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

2021-06-28 Cynthia

The Mandela Effect is now mainstream enough to qualify its very own topic on the TV show Jeopardy TV show, and as the topic for the New York Times Sunday crossword puzzle.  While some media sources might maintain “there’s nothing to see here” since supposedly it can all be explained as mass misremembering, a steadily growing number of people feel quite differently.  I asked the question on several social media platforms, “What does the Mandela Effect mean to you?” and I was delighted to receive so many insightful responses. 

What the Mandela Effect Means to Me

I’ve dedicated decades of my life’s work to exploring the phenomena of reality shifts, quantum jumps, and the Mandela Effect–and related aspects of mind-matter interaction.  I’ve been publishing online first-hand accounts of reality shifts and Mandela Effects since the 1990s, in what is possibly the oldest and largest such publicly available archive.  Recently, I’ve been part of monthly IMEC Open Tables live-stream events on the International Mandela Effect Conference’s YouTube channel.  What I haven’t talked much about–until now–is why am I dedicating my life’s work to researching this subject?

The simplest answer to this question is that I’ve had a lifelong dedication to and fascination with the nature of reality–and consciousness.  Thanks to a number of my own personal life experiences, I’ve been keenly aware that my thoughts and feelings definitely influence physical reality.  We now see scientific evidence to support that this is true, in such phenomena as the placebo effect, which I write about in my book, Quantum Jumps.

The more complete answer is that I believe the Mandela Effect helps show mankind a way that together, we can collectively experience changes to our shared reality–including changes to historical events.  We can experience miraculous reality shifts, quantum jumps, and timeline jumps together. 

What the Mandela Effect Means for All of Us

This past month I asked people in several different places on social media, including my YouTube community, my Facebook page, and various Facebook groups. I got some wonderful responses.  Here are some that express how so many of us are feeling about this topic at this time.

“… it means that we create our realities.  We can see/know beyond what we’re being told is truth.  Life is what you make it.”

“… it means I shifted my reality, and Mandela Effect episodes are an artifact of the ones I left.  It’s evidence to me my intentions to level up were successful.”

“I personally just find it to be something fun and exciting in my life; I know the deeper meanings, however I get a kick out of seeing a supposedly solid reality changing in front of my eyes.”

“They show me how I/we are progressing and expanding into different timelines and alternate/parallel realities.  It makes me way too excited every time I notice something, because I feel it is a sign I am doing something good and moving in a positive direction.”

“I generally think that the universe, All That Is, etc… is trying to get my attention.”

“… it means learning how to survive in almost a new environment.  At first it was like I was propelled into a different dimension, but as time goes by I am adapting to it.”

“It means we can shift this reality into a more love-ful and aware state when the collective will truly wishes for it.  It gives me hope.”

“For me, so-called ‘reality’ exists, but not the way we think it exists.  It is plastic, mold-able.  There is no cnocrete, solid, objective we can point to and say, ‘this is the only thing that is real.’–That is a mental, socialized construct that we all want to agree on, so we can feel comfort.”

“My opinions keep fluctuating as I keep trying to make sense of it; it means different things as I grow through them.”

“We are coming together as timelines merge and solidify.”

“Merging and aligning with highest Golden timeline.”

“I think it is a natural part of our evolution into higher dimensions–the effect will become more frequent and speed up to where our thoughts can manifest instantly and our lives are symphony of synchronicity. It will be accepted as our everyday reality that the past, present and future shift instantly. I had a glimpse once of what it will feel like as this speeds up and, from my current perspective, it’s dizzying! Like stepping into the flow of a fast moving stream and letting go!”

“I see them as breadcrumbs letting us know that we are moving in the right direction.  The first ones I think bring us to a personal dark night of the soul, so to speak, and generally force us to work through some things on our own–mainly because it takes some personal work to realize that we aren’t crazy and that it is real.  It then allows people to decide which road they want to take.  Do we believe that it is a confabulation (as the powers that be want you to believe) or do we realize that we create our reality and we can decide, as Cynthia Sue Larson likes to ask, ‘How good can it get?’  I’ve had a lot of fun with asking kids about if they could create any animal, what would it look like?  And the results are pretty amazing! We have shifted to realities where some of them actually exist!  And we couldn’t find proof of them when I had asked them.  So it can be super exciting!”

. . . . . . . . . . .


This last comment reminds me that when I saw the movie Napolean Dynamite, I remember the main character drawing something in a sketchbook, and being asked what he was drawing.  He replied that he was drawing a “Liger,” which was a combination of a lion and a tiger.  I remember looking it up at the time, to see if such an animal existed, and seeing at that time that the movie came out in 2004, that it did not.  But this year, I noticed seeing a real living Liger, that actually is a mix of lion and tiger. 

This in turn reminds me of the perennial wisdom from indigenous wisdom keepers, that all ideas come from Nature, and that this is the true source of Original Thinking.  This idea of “original” is thus a bit different from what we often think of, in terms of presuming human ingenuity and creativity are the source of novelty.  I highly recommend meditating on this other perspective of the meaning of Nature being the true source of all “original thought”–in a kind of complete and absolute compendium of all possible ideas and notions.  To glean a sense of what this is all about, I recommend Glenn Aparicio Parry’s book, Original Thinking.

Renewed Hope

With respect to the ideas of merging timelines, the Golden Timeline,  idealism, optimalism, philosopher Nicholas Rescher’s idea of Axiogenesis, the Hopi Prophecy rock, and Revhumanism–I also love the Mandela Effect for the way it is helping us recognize how some global changes might be able to resolve otherwise seemingly insoluble problems.  Solutions can arrive as if they had always been there.  And that’s definitely part of what I envision as my best possible future reality.

Which of course reminds me that I also recommend in any and all circumstances that we all keep asking my favorite question, “How good can it get?”   Let’s find out!

Reality shifting has really taken off since I first wrote about this topic in the 1990s.  Now that so many people are wondering how to experience reality shifts–including both strategies for success, and also ideas for creating a supportive mindset and environment–I recommend these tips for best results.

1. Pay Attention

The world seems full of whatever we focus our attention on.  When you’re thinking of buying a new car, you see the kind of car you’re thinking of almost everywhere you go.  We can definitely start noticing more reality shifts by seeking them out, and noticing even the seemingly smallest shifts when they occur. 

2. Appreciate

Feeling grateful for what we have is the best way to receive more of what we most enjoy. Expressing
appreciation and thanks feels good and helps us continue to pay attention to what we most love, allowing
more good experiences to come our way.

3. Review Scientific Studies

Reproducible, double-blind scientific studies conducted by doctors in real-life hospital situations are now
proving that distant healing improves the health of those being prayed for. The wishes and prayers have come
from people with a wide range of beliefs, indicating that we are all non-locally connected and can influence
physical reality from great distances.  You can read articles or blog posts or RealityShifters, or watch videos I’ve posted that can soothe any left-brain doubts in the reality of reality shifts. 

4. Revise Your Assumptions

The old assumptions that we can be objective observers without influencing what we’re watching or having
any long-distance effects have been disproved with recent quantum physics experiments. We now know that
we can only make predictions in terms of probabilities, and that we can’t disregard consciousness or spirit
simply because we can’t measure those things. 

5. Energize Yourself

Take a few minutes to reverse the damage stress causes to your body every day. Breathe love in, feeling it in
your heart, and recall some of your favorite memories. These feelings of Love will energize you tremendously, which increases the probability that you’ll experience enjoyable reality shifts.

6. Reverse Negative Self-Talk

Our inner self-talk is a running dialogue with the universe. When self-talk consists of put-downs and negativity, it directly interferes with anything good we wish to observe. We can minimize negative self-talk by “flipping” each negative statement around, and making an affirmation out of those reversed statements. Posting these affirmations and reading them every day is a powerful way to remove the destructive interference.

7. Feel Non-Locally Interconnected

Just as quantum particles are found to be intimately interconnected with twin particles located great distances
away, we also are non-locally interconnected with everything and everyone we love.  You have support from those you know in daily life, through the internet, and also through angelic support. 

8. Visualize What You Desire

Visualize what you most desire to experience in your life — all your favorite, wildest dreams — with the idea
in mind that we actually create reality as we observe it.  If visualizing seems challenging or not quite right for you, then you can simply ask my favorite question, “How good can it get?” and help steer reality in directions that you and everyone can best enjoy. 

9. Let Go of Wishes

The best way to make our favorite dreams come true after we’ve visualized them is to release them. This
gives them the degrees of freedom required to exist unobserved as pure energy waves, before our observation
collapses the wave functions and one possibility materializes.

10. Choose Your Attitude

The most important thing to remember when you face challenges or seemingly impossible situations is to
remember that reality can shift! You can choose to replace your feelings of stress, fear, or anger and breathe
Love. The more you practice this meditation of “thinking with your heart”, the easier it will be, and the more
wonderful reality shifts you’ll experience!

You can create meditations that work best for you very simply, so you have a variety of possible meditations you can practice regularly.  Here’s a quick way to zero in on your best meditation technique. First choose a favorite physically
relaxing activity, and then select a favorite mental focus.  When you combine these two, you’ll have a customized meditation technique that’s exactly right for you.

There are big advantages to those who meditate: everything from improved health, increased happiness, reduced stress, and greater prosperity.  In addition to these perks, people who meditate also find themselves surrounded with happy coincidences and delightful synchronicity.  Things just seem to go their way. 

There are so many ways to meditate, it’s good to try some different kinds, and discover what works best for you. Some people meditate while walking, others while gardening, some while listening to music, some while paying attention to their breathing and clearing their minds of all thoughts. Those are just a few different kinds–there are many, many more.  Once you know what kind of meditator you are, you can zero in on a method that works well for you.

1. Choose a Favorite Relaxing Activity

Simply doing whatever activity you find most relaxing is a form of meditation! There are more advanced techniques in which you can pay attention to your breathing and/or your thoughts.  The most important starting place is thinking of the types of relaxing activities you truly most enjoy.  People who love activities such as running, bicycling, or walking can develop their own form of meditation that includes those activities.  Other possible relaxing activities you might consider include:  listening to music; working in the garden; lying down on the grass; closing eyes and breathing deeply; watching clouds go by; and taking a hot bath or shower. 

2. Select a Favorite Mental Focus

Whatever mental focus most appeals to you is the one to try.  Some people count their breaths, some like finding shapes or patterns in clouds, some enjoy just letting their mind drift, others like to focus on letting go of all thoughts with each deep breath, and still others observe thoughts go by.  I sometimes enjoy feeling energy flowing in my body, or noticing what state of mind I’m in.  What sort of mental focuses most appeal to you?

3. Combine Favorite Activity and Mental Focus

The third step to creating your own customized meditation is truly simple and straightforward:  just combine one of your most relaxing activities with one of your most relaxing mental focuses, and Voila!  You are meditating!  You can come up with several different types of meditations, to try them out at different times, and see for yourself which work best for you.  If you try one meditation and find you don’t like it, then try another one. You can find something you like, so don’t give up!

2021 Bri Bennage

High school student, Bri Bennage, won the International Mandela Effect Conference (IMEC)’s first golden Mandy award. The golden Mandy is awarded for demonstrating or raising awareness of the Mandela Effect.
The International Mandela Effect Conference (IMEC)’s golden Mandy award is the Mandela Effect version of the Academy Awards Oscar.

Six nominees were considered in 2021 for either having a dramatic MandelaEffect, or for raising awareness of the Mandela Effect. Nominees forthe 2021 golden Mandy award included: (1) Shazam movie by DC Comics;(2) Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets; (3) Holmes and Watson,released in 2018; (4) Pinocchio, released December 2020; (5) BriBennage’s TEDx Youth talk: The Mystery Behind the Mandela Effect; (6)Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

International Mandela Effect Conference (IMEC)

The International Mandela Effect Conference (IMEC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, based in Branford, Connecticut. IMEC was founded in2020, and has organized online and in-person conferences. This year’s golden Mandy award was presented to high school junior Bri Bennage by IMEC board members: Cynthia Sue Larson, Chris Anatra, Jerry Hicks, and Shane Robinson on a livestream event on the International Mandela Effect Conference YouTube channel.

Golden Mandy recipient Bri Bennage said, “I have a wonderful teacher, Miss Taylor. She got in contact with TED talks for TEDx Youth, so the debate students are able to do TED talks. I had watched them the past two years since I’ve been at the school.

“Toward the middle-ish of the year, we had our classmates vote on some topics we could talk about. I knew in the back of my mind, no matter what three topics had been voted for, I’m still doing the Mandela Effect.

“My generation is a lot more into conspiracies and stuff, where we are trying to figure it out in our own brains. I’m so adamant that I remember this is what it was—no one could change my mind. My generation and my classmates are a lot more aware of it, but not everyone. I don’t think everyone is saying ‘Berenstein Bears, Nelson Mandela—Whoa, this is crazy!’ but I went over (Mandela Effects)with my best friends, saying, ‘You need to listen to me; you’re going to freak out—you have no idea what I found today!”

IMEC Vice President, Chris Anatra, asked Bri about her plans for the future and Bri replied, “I do acting, and another thing I’m looking at is double majoring in forensic sciences and investigation.”

IMEC Founder and Treasurer, Jerry Hicks said, “Detective work really is what we do as researchers. We’re getting all the facts we can and putting it together to try to make a conclusive idea. And when you’re trying to apply logic to an illogical situation, that’s when it really gets fun, right?”

The International Mandela Effect Conference (IMEC) is producing monthly“Open Tables” livestream events this year, to help promote awareness of the Mandela Effect in keeping with its mission to inspire, empower, and unify all curious observers. Through the evidence presented as the Mandela or Quantum Effect we bring into this phenomenon’s own alignment truths which have proven themselves timeless in all religions, spiritual practices, and scientific findings. Together we Go. Together we Grow.

 

  • The International Mandela Effect Conference (IMEC) was featured on the HBO show, “How to with John Wilson,” Season 1, Episode 3, “How to Improve Your Memory” (2020).

  • IMEC was formed by a group of friends from around the world who have a passion for The Mandela Effect and the community surrounding it. The founding members have a strong background in Academic, Religious, and Paranormal research. After coming together to put on the first International Mandela Effect Conference in 2019 they decided to make a way for future generations to continue searching for answers about this phenomenon.

I just obtained something I’ve waited 20 years for: a “music of the plants” device that allows plants to compose and play music. Here is a video of the first time a potted pothos plant learns to compose and play music on the Bamboo device. 

Prototype debut June 2000

In June 2000, I attended a consciousness conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I witnessed one of the most amazing things I’ve seen in all my travels around the world–a plant composing and playing music.  Back in those early days of the internet, more than 20 years ago, I posted my report on the conference on my website, since at that time there were no such things as blogs.  A Report on the Second Annual International Conference on Science and Consciousness can still be viewed in its entirety right where I originally posted it on my site.  Here is a photograph I took of that world premiere concert of music composed and played by a plant for an international audience, which I explain in these excerpts from my report:

Steven
Halpern
The evening Steven Halpern concert was truly amazing, because Steven had a very special guest performer – a potted plant! A philodendron was hooked up to a MIDI and synthesizer with two alligator clipped wires, and it proceeded to play a beautiful, complex piece of very unique music. The philodendron’s song started off sounding a little bit sleepy, then gradually picked up tempo and proceeded to play a song unlike anything I’ve ever heard humans play! It was exquisite, and soothing, and fresh. The notes would rise and sustain on high notes that sounded something like someone playing a rising scale on a xylophone … then it would be quiet.

Next, a melody would begin with lower notes and a chord would hang suspended and sustained as notes rose slowly … bringing to my mind the vision of water flowing down gently from a plant’s leaves into the soil after a rain. I almost felt like I could smell the fresh air of the outdoors in this very large conference room! Halpern explained that some people from Damanhur in Italy had created the technology which allows any plant to “sing,” provided the plant is awake and willing to participate.

Steven Halpern played a very moving piece of music he’d written on the piano, called “Spectrum Suite,” which focuses energy of each of the seven chakras and brings people to very deep alpha and theta states of consciousness. He played this piece after having played a couple of other short songs on the hotel’s piano … and then noticed that the piano was out of tune. Halpern asked for the audience’s assistance to intend for the piano to come into tune – which it did for the exquisite “Spectrum Suite” song! This song is perfect for anyone who wishes to help people learn to meditate, or who works with people in a healing capacity, as the music is extremely energizing and relaxing.

Halpern checked on the philodendron again, to find out if it wished to perform another song for us, and it did! This grand finale was a bright and cheery song, which was very different from the first song … it reminded me of a fond memory of watching the rising sun! The notes rose at the same speed that the sun rises on the horizon, and I could imagine the sun coming up with the first rays of light shining down as the notes “warmed up”… and also became more frequent. This song was a radiant expression of unlimited love rising anew! I listened with my eyes shut, and could visualize as the sun had fully cleared the horizon how the notes quieted a bit and softened … and the song came to an end.

2007 Damanhur visit

When I visited the Federation of Damanhur in June 2007, I was fascinated to learn how its underground Temples of Humankind are built on one of only two places on Earth where there is a convergence of four synchronic lines. The Damanhurian concept of synchronic lines is based on the idea that these energy lines are capable of modifying events and transmitting ideas, thoughts and feelings in ways that shift reality. Great care is taken in the Damanhur community to ensure the transmission of peaceful and positive thoughts and energies throughout the Earth. I was favorably impressed by the energy I felt at Damanhur, particularly in one of the underground chambers where the energy lines converged most noticably. These rooms are viewable and open to the public during scheduled tours, and I felt very fortunate to experience the healing intent of these special chambers in a very small group. I could sense the resonance from the converging energy lines, and made use of this special opportunity to focus my intentions to help ensure the very best possible future for everyone on Earth. 

Since my visit to Damanhur, I have heard reports of a room where potted plants are given the ability to move themselves around the room on wheeled plant stands.  These plants also have been the ability to adjust window shades, and water themselves.  Perhaps most notably, these plants have also been given control over the lock on the door to their room, such that they can permit or deny access and entrance to humans as they wish (such as if people knocking at the door have arrived in an angry mood). 

Music of the Plants

In March 2021, I was delighted to order and receive my Music of the Plants device!  I had enjoyed playing with a friend’s prototype device several years ago, which was a wonderful experience, so I was already familiar with the way it is possible to work with various controls and settings for different types of sounds and effects. 

This new “Bamboo” device is portable, easy-to-operate, elegant, quick to charge, and a joy to use.  I first connected it to my ficus tree, which is the ‘pet’ and family member I’ve lived longest with in my life.  The ficus immediately began composing and playing music, as if this was something it’s always done.  I hooked up the device to several other potted plants, noting most of them took a few minutes to gain a sense of how they were creating music.  One pothos plant created music for hours that had a beautiful healing quality, with a deeply peaceful and harmonious vibe.  I’ve enjoyed listening to the strawberry plants in my garden, as well as some ginger plants, and look forward to enjoying music with many plants in my home and garden.

I recently saw the documentary, “Glitch in the Matrix,” where filmmaker Rodney Ascher asks the question “are we living in a simulation?”  He includes film footage of Nick Bostrom, and Philip K. Dick, as well as others intrigued by this idea.  Here are some highlights from the documentary, from my perspective.

Philip K. Dick and the Mandela Effect

I’d been looking forward to see “Glitch in the Matrix,” since I’d heard that it references the Mandela Effect.  One of the highlights for me in watching “Glitch in the Matrix” was the inclusion of Philip K. Dick’s 1977 talk in Metz, France, entitled, “If you find this world bad, you should see some of the others,” around the time the first Star Wars movie came out in theaters.  Philip K. Dick (PKD) gave this talk three years after having an extraordinary experience in his life on February 3, 1974.  After that experience and other epiphanies, PKD’s  interest in the idea of other parallel possible realities became much more pronounced.  In his 1977 talk in Metz, France, PKD expressed his expectation that some people will recall other possible histories.  In 1977 when Dick gave this talk, I was experiencing reality shifts and what would come to be known as the Mandela Effect, and I am favorably impressed by his comments about the significance and importance of people noticing alternate histories.  By the year 2010, the term “Mandela Effect” would come to be acknowledged as a worldwide phenomenon.  In his 1977 talk in Metz, PKD said, “We are living a computer programmed reality, and the only clue we have to it is when some variable has changed, and some alteration in our reality occurs.  We would have the overwhelming impression that we were reliving the present deja vu, perhaps in precisely the same way, hearing the same words, saying the same words.  I submit that these impressions are valid and significant and I will even say this such an impression is a clue that it’s in past time point a variable was changed–reprogrammed as it were–and that because of this, an alternative world branched off.”

While I certainly appreciate the view that abrupt changes such as reality shifts and Mandela Effects to what has supposedly ‘always been true’ might seem similar to what we’d expect to see if we were living in a computer-programmed simulated reality, the Simulation Theory itself seems more like a description of the way we sense and experience the world, rather than a comprehensive and complete true theory of the nature of reality.

NPCs and Nothingness

The “Glitch in the Matrix” documentary shows how some people have experienced a sense of vast nothingness, when going beyond awareness of others around them.  It makes the point that such an experience of nothingness can feel quite bleak.

I had a profound experience of feeling a sense of nothingness during the time I underwent a Kundalini awakening in 1994, which was part of my spiritual awakening.  At that time, I felt a deep loneliness far beyond anything I’d ever felt before or since. I recognized in that experience that any kind of existence disconnected from all relationships with others is a truly intolerable sensation.  I found my way through that experience by knowing at a deep level that I refused to be alone, and by knowing that other realities and other worlds exist, so therefore I would make contact with other consciousness(es).  It seems to me that the meaning of noticing such vast nothingness is to remind us that we need relationships with others in a very deep, profound, and fundamental way.

Some people believe NPC (non player characters) exist, such that some people are not truly inspired nor motivated, and “Glitch in the Matrix” presents this concept–along with the potential dark side of possibly making a mistake in treating others as NPCs in a given moment, which we can come to regret when we were not acting with kindness nor compassion. When I was a little girl, I had an experience where I was shocked to witness that people–including my own family members–sometimes move through daily like on autopilot, as if they are not fully and completely present and sentient and actively making choices in each moment.  I write about this idea that so many of us are running on autopilot in my book, Reality Shifts. I discuss the importance of getting past our masks and facades, and our tendency to think, speak, and act on autopilot.  We can all be ‘called in’ to be more fully present in our lives, and this can be part of our spiritual evolution, both individually and collectively as a species. 

GANS and Human Purpose

“Glitch in the Matrix” presents the idea of GANS – Generative Adversarial NetworkS–where two (or more) Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems are in competition with one another as they create simulations.  One is the FORGER whose task is to create human beings who look enough like humans to fool someone. Another AI system is called the INSPECTOR, whose job is to tell the difference between fake and actual people. Some feel it’s possible that the human role in Simulation Theory is to fine-tune and improve the Simulation according to this GANS process. 

While I agree with those in the “Glitch in the Matrix” documentary that humans are certainly capable of channeling and editing inspirational ideas, it seems clear that without any underlying sense of meaning and story and relationships, these simplistic roles would seem to hold little long-term interest for most humans.

The Dreamtime and Plato’s Cave

“Glitch in the Matrix” points out that in the movie, “The Matrix,” Neo keeps his money and special things in a book, “Simulacra and Simulation,” which is a tip-off at the start of that movie that all is not what it seems. There is a long tradition within indigenous societies of acknowledging dreams within dreams, and ‘the Dreamtime.’ This idea of dreaming the world into existence, with layers and layers of dreams and awakenings is a much more ancient concept even than Plato’s cave, to the point that there exist words to express how seemingly real physical reality is just ‘maya’–just illusion

When Neo first awakens, and wonders why his eyes don’t work, Morpheus explains, “Because you’ve never used them before.” This matches what we know scientifically, as I’ve shared in a podcast I did with Dr. Donald Hoffman:  Perception, Truth, and Reality with Donald Hoffman.  Dr. Hoffman describes how our sense of the world through our perceptions is not truly real—our experience of true reality is filtered.  Donald Hoffman talked with me about his interface theory of perception, in which what we typically assume to be “out there” is not necessarily reality–but rather something akin to the desktop user interface on a computer. And just as we don’t need to execute machine language commands in order to send an email or delete a file, biological evolution has been proven to favor perceptual fitness over truthful completeness and accuracy of perception.  As Hoffman writes, “… to experience is to construct, in each modality and without exception,” and new findings in quantum physics and quantum biology increasingly provide scientific evidence to show this is true.

Similarly, in the allegory of Plato’s Cave, the true light of the world is much more brilliant than the shadow world as seen within the cave. When Plato comes back into the cave, he sees his friends are still watching the shadow play, giving one another acknowledgement for being first to spot what’s going on. This allegory of the cave reminds me of how anyone who has enlightenment experiences feels transformed when returning to everyday life. Quite often, it’s impossible to interact with friends, family, and colleagues the same as before the epiphany and transcendant experience. It’s also challenging, if not impossible, to explain or properly convey the experience fully to others.

Will We Recognize Our Reflection?

In “Glitch in the Matrix,” Jesse Orion expresses feelings of frustration when noticing he’s been stuck in digital worlds that aren’t going so well. And then when he gets out of those games and simulations, he’s noticed he was still stuck in a reality that’s not going so well, either. And he can’t help but draw parallels, since “the grass is dead on both sides. It’s like they’re ‘quick-patching’ reality,” because (just like in glitchy games), real life is not going that well.  “People are broken. Cosmologies are broken.”   This sounds to me like “glass half full” kind of thinking, where whatever we focus our attention on, we will see more of whatever we happen to be focusing on. 

I notice that humans are becoming more capable of instantaneous manifestation, at which point our ability to maintain good emotional and energetic hygiene (keeping to good and nurturing thoughts) is becoming ever more essential to our personal and social well-being. We can start to observe how we can experience more of whatever we focus our attention and energies upon. Many of us have habits of dwelling on complaints, worries, fears, and observations of lack—rather than nurturing gratitude, appreciation, and reverence. 

PKD writes about worlds which may be inhabited by just one protagonist, or who may have others who join them in their peculiar world, or those others remained in their own worlds throughout. PKD wrote on these themes of ‘pleuriform pseudo-worlds’ because he, “was sensing the manifold of partially actualized realities, remaining tangent to the actualized one—the one that the majority of us, by consensus gentiem, agree on.” I love how PKD was so tuned in to the way that it seems people can—and often do—experience simultaneous parallel realities. I love how this matches some recent experimental findings in quantum physics, in which observational devices even at the same place and time can witness different events. This seems to clearly indicate that there may be no such thing as one ‘objective reality.’

Another character in “Glitch in the Matrix” asks the question:  “When we know we may be in a simulation, how do we ethically deal with others—when we also know others are there like me, who aren’t simulations? How do I deal with someone who’s behind a false avatar, but who I really want to communicate with?”  He also points out: “Simulation theory seems to kind of solve problems, but it really makes the problems more poignant, and in your face.” 

Again, this is such a perfect juncture to invite ourselves to find a story line we actually wish to inhabit—it’s such a great opportunity to care more about our relationships with other people, animals, plants, things, and the Earth and moon and sun and stars and sky.  When we make the most of our epiphanies through lucid dreaming and recognizing how our physical senses merely show us a kind of illusory facade that is not complete reality—we can become the change we wish to see in the world.  We can become more caring, more compassionate, more kind.  We can care more about our relationships with others. 

Divine Awakening

“Glitch in the Matrix” mentions that PKD’s friend, Tom Disch, first suggested to him that his experience on Feb 3, 1974 sounded like “Enthousiasmos” by Elijah, and PKD liked the idea, and found it pleasant.  The experience of feeling inspired by God seems uplifting, and like it would have given PKD a feeling of spiritual epiphany, which seems to have been the case.

One character in “Glitch in the Matrix” points out that: There are fundamental metaphors we have about reality, such as “life is like a journey,” and “Waking up from a dream”—and shifting between ontological realities (sometimes quite abruptly, or with intense emotions) is a fundamental, cognitive experience—is “stitched into us.” 

Yes; humans do seem to be wired to experience many levels of awakening, in order to discover many levels of identity within ourselves. Perhaps the greatest unasked question, and the question that potentially can do the most for us in terms of answering all our questions and solving all our problems is simply, “Who am I?”  

This question of identity can enable us to begin to realize our true identity is involved with co-creating our experienced dream-within-a-dream; and also that we have many levels and layers to our conscious identity.

Something amazing that happened to me the other day–I let go of a bottle of furniture polish, and it vanished without a trace or a sound!  I suspect I was able to find it again, thanks to feeling resonance with it.

On March 22, 2021, I had been watching a presentation by Dr. Dean Radin for the Institute of Noetic Sciences about Manifesting and Magic, and was contemplating some of what he had discussed in his talk covering some of what he writes in his book, “Real Magic.” I walked around the house, and got an almost empty bottle of Howard Feed-N-Wax and a rag, preparing to clean the dinner table.

As I walked into the kitchen, I closed the door behind me, and shook the bottle with a powerful downward shake, intending to move the contents of the bottle down toward the cap. The bottle slipped out of my fingers, and…. vanished without a trace or sound. I spun around and searched the entire kitchen, including the area where I expected it might have gone, toward the oven, where it surely would have made a loud sound if it had hit, but it was nowhere in the entire kitchen. I shook my head with amazement, smiled, and commented aloud, “That’s AMAZING!” At the time this experience unfolded, my mind was wandering, as I was walking and daydreaming about the topics that Dean had discussed about the power of mind-matter interaction, and a replication of his original intentional chocolate experiment (that I’d been a participant in) with intentional tea. So I had no primary intention in that exact moment.  I was in that optimal relaxed, energized state, while daydreaming about what Dr. Dean Radin had been talking about–‘real magic.’ Pretty much perfect conditions for teleporting take-off!

teleporting bottleMy first thought upon noticing the bottle had vanished was, “Well of course it can disappear like that when it’s out of my sight for an instant.”  My next thought was to search every place in the immediate vicinity where it might have ‘tunneled’ right through solid objects.  I opened the oven door and looked inside the oven.  I opened the refrigerator, which was not in the flight path, but was nearby, and checked inside.  I even looked inside the garbage container.  The bottle was in none of these places.  I checked down low, to see if perhaps the bottle might have gotten wedged under a cupboard, or down low by the oven.  In the process of looking where I would have expected to find the bottle, I did not find the bottle, but I did locate some magnetic rings that had been missing, and had somehow attached themselves to the underside of a baking sheet pan.  I realized with this discovery that I would not have checked this area for some time–until I next used that particular baking pan–so this part of the teleporting bottle experience now had a silver lining. 

Feeling in Resonance

Once I’d thoroughly inspected the kitchen area where the bottle had disappeared, and I wasn’t finding it anywhere, I realized that I might not see that bottle again.  I realized that would be OK, and not the end of the world, and smiled at the way I valued this event just as it was–which I was experiencing in that moment as a bottle that vanished.  I even laughed with the Cosmos, that such a thing could happen, and with this laugh, and acceptance, and relaxation, I also felt how much I appreciate that bottle of Feed-N-Wax, and how it would be nice if it showed up again somewhere, some time–and of course there would be no questions asked. 

I’ve often noticed the benefit of feeling in resonance with others when setting out to facilitate seemingly impossible outcomes.  I once promised a lost stray dog, “We’ll find your owner,” even though the dog would not let me touch its identification tags, nor pet it.  We did have moments of eye contact, and more than that, I felt a heart-centered connection with this canine.  This dog looked tired, as if it had been walking for hours, and it’s fur was damp with dew from its paws up each leg, along its belly, and part way up its chest.  I asked this dog out loud, “Where did you come from?”  After gazing at me for a few seconds, the dog turned its head quite deliberately to point toward the far-off city of Orinda, on the other side of this gigantic park.  The dog then turned its head back to gaze at me once more.  Thanks to feeling a sense of heartfelt resonance between the two of us, there was a palpable feeling of shared intention, based on genuine need.  Once I’d felt a sense of resonance and coherent, shared intent with this dog, I also felt a sense of certainty and inevitability that with two of us requiring that possible reality, then of course that will be the only reality that we will walk into.  I was not forming any elaborate plan in mind, but rather chose to walk with the dog, toward a solution for it to go home.  I could feel how much this dog needed to find its owner, and I shared that vision totally, to the point that I made a spoken promise aloud: “We’ll find your owner.”  And sure enough, that’s exactly what we did.  Within a few minutes of walking side-by-side along a hiking trail in our local park, relaxed in our shared company, we heard a woman’s voice on the paved road above us, just beyond some trees, “Derby?  Derby, is that you?”  Derby looked up at her, and with a sudden rush of joy and renewed vigor, bounded up the hill to meet her.  It turned out this woman had driven to the park from her home, many miles away in Orinda–exactly the direction that Derby had pointed out with his nose, when I asked where he was from! 

One of the wonderful aspects about contemplating the primary role of consciousness with regard to the physical world is that we can sometimes gain insights into the way we are always in conversation with the Cosmos, and that we have the ability–through our Free Will–to choose to be in resonance with others.  I remembered this, and renewed my sense of resonance with the bottle.  I then opened the kitchen door, walked across the hall into the living room, and was stunned to see the bottle there on the floor! Which was technically impossible, since it was too far for me to have flung it, and also the kitchen door was closed at the time.

The feeling of sharing intentions with others, and feeling kindness, compassion and reverence for others seems so deeply intertwined to me with experiencing positive reality shifts that I’m glad to be able to bring a focus of attention to it here today.

NOTES:

I had been watching an IONS special presentation featuring Dean Radin. It would be great if they post it on YouTube. I just looked and didn’t find it there, but I did find a fairly recent and equally fascinating interview with Michael Sandler interviewing Dean Radin on the “Inspire Nation” YouTube channel, discussing topics of resonance, effortless striving (with a sense of not being alone, but inviting support from others), and the intentional chocolate experiment, the intentional Oolong Tea experiment, and the blessed water and plants experiment results–as well as the possibility of a “PSI gene,” located in human so-called ‘junk DNA’ that is not particularly rare, but can be epigenitically expressed in some people who do have the gene.  You can view this excellent interview at: https://youtu.be/WmUOhS5Cwz4

I invite you to listen to my “Living the Quantum Dream” podcast episode, Real Magic with Dean Radin, about the science behind real magic of:  mental influence in the physical world, perception of events distant in space and time, and interactions with nonphysical entities.  Dean discusses parapsychology studies involving mediumship and channeling, and provides explanation for why if magic is real, we don’t often see large-scale evidence of magic in the world.  Dean shares some of the most surprising results he’s seen when experimental subjects have observed and interacted with photons, demonstrating how our scientific understanding of the world benefits from unexpected findings.

I was recently asked what people can do to survive the current weird environment.  This query continued:  “We really need to shift our reality away from negativity and fear.  It’s funny because as I type this you are saying in the background on YouTube, ask the good questions.” 

When we feel we’re in a weird environment, full of negativity and fear, we can shift to a positive perspective.  We can take a deep breath, acknowledge the vastness of the Cosmos, and our connection to it, and we can raise our level of consciousness to a higher dimension.  Through this raising of consciousness we can experience sadness transform into vulnerability; anxiety transform into caring; and anger transform into assertiveness.

Your Ongoing Conversation with the Cosmos

Our questions matter a great deal more than most of us consciously realize.  Most every mentally focused, heart-centered, passionately inspired thought and question–even those thought ‘privately’ to ourselves are in actuality one side of an on-going conversation we are engaged in every day of our lives.

This concept garnered some respect when introduced by physicist John Archibald Wheeler, who emphasized that we live in a participatory universe:

“We are not only observers. 
We are participators. 
In some strange sense,
this is a participatory universe.”
    — John Archibald Wheeler

This concept is wonderful, because it provides us with a basis by which we can be scientists, conducting personal experiments in our own lives.  I suggest for best results to start by paying attention to how you are feeling.

On days when your Qi (internal energy) is high, such as when you are in love, or have meditated, exercised, or spent a beautiful day in nature, you may notice that some thoughts seem to instantly manifest in physical reality.

When we’re not feeling strong energy, there are some things we can do to pull ourselves up by the proverbial bootstraps.

The Observer’s Perspective Effect

The so-called “Observer Effect” in quantum physics refers to the principle by which the very act of taking observational measurements in an experiment such as the famous Double Slit Experiment have the effect of determining what will subsequently be observed.

We can thus shift reality by shifting our perspective.  This is a brilliant strategy for virtually any situation that we apparently have no control over.  Obviously, with regard to situations we can influence, we can start creating a to-do list and set reasonable goals that we feel fairly certain we can attain.  But for everything we have minimal or no ability to influence, the absolutely best thing we can do is to adjust our perspective–and change our attitude.  At such a juncture, it’s often helpful to remember that there is a great deal that is bigger than us–and we can trust and have faith that the cosmos was here before we were born, and the cosmos will exist long after we’re gone.

Sometimes we feel temporarily mired in emotional “stuff”–such as feelings of great sadness, tremendous anxiety, or outrage and anger.  When we know that we can take a few steps back and observe ourselves having these emotions, we can begin to pull ourselves out of whatever drama we’re feeling tempted to participate in:  we can become positive observers.

Breathe Slowly and Deeply

One of the simplest ways to lift above feelings of despair, anxiety, and anger is to take some slow, deep, steady breaths.  Inhale with a full, deep, slow breath–and then exhale even more slowly than you just breathed in.  Bring your attention to knowing that in this moment of space and time, you are OK.  Keep breathing slowly and deeply.

Connect with Cosmic Mind

While still breathing slowly and deeply, bring your awareness to the idea that the Cosmos was here long before you arrived in the form you now occupy.  Keep breathing slowly, deeply, and fully and envision that all you really ever need to do is show up in life, and do the best you can for yourself and others.  The Cosmos can do the ‘heavy lifting’ of coordinating all the reality shifts and miracles that may feel completely out of our control.

Becoming a Positive Observer

It sometimes helps to notice how other people can get caught up in dramas.  People who are feeling constantly sad and downtrodden can seem to be playing the role of Victim; those who seem chronically anxious often play the role of Rescuer; and those who are angry and full of outrage can often (and quite inadvertently) end up playing the role of Persecutor.

When we find ourselves wallowing in seemingly endless sadness, anxiety, or anger we can recognize we might have stepped into some drama ‘quicksand.’  At this stage of awareness, it’s easy for us to come up with all sorts of rationales and reasons why it’s imperative that we must stay ___________ ( depressed / anxious / outraged ), because ___________.  When we raise our level of consciousness by stepping back and observing ourselves, we will notice that those stuck feelings are not actually either necessary nor optimal functioning modes.

As we lift out of lower-vibe emotions, we can move for example, from sadness into vulnerability.  We can move from anxiety into caring.  We can move from anger into assertiveness.  The first step toward becoming positive observers is learning to observe what we are thinking and how we are feeling from a perspective of kindness and unconditional love.  There is value in gaining a higher-order viewpoint, in much the same way that you could easily find a hidden character such as Waldo hiding in a two dimensional ‘flatland’ floor plan.  With the advantage of our three-dimensional observational abilities, we do not need to wander around inside that ‘flatland’ floor plan, but instead can instantly see at a glance where Waldo is hiding.

Raising our level of consciousness grants us the ability to see the bigger picture–that our thoughts and feelings do not define us, but rather are passing through, much like clouds in the sky.   It grants us the ability to rise out of sadness to vulnerability; out of anxiety to caring; and out of anger into assertiveness.

Honoring this shift to positive perspective, we can remember to keep asking, “How good can it get?”

Have you ever wished you could jump into another world–another reality?  Maybe you already have!

There is an unspoken assumption that we all agree that there exists one consistent set of true historical events–and therefore can expect that all our individual memories ought to correspond to this singular, objective reality.  That’s an unspoken assumption, and it’s not really questioned.  We tend to expect that all of our individual experiences and memories map onto that one, singular, objective reality.  But what if that assumption is not true?

What if we exist within a holographic multiverse of ever-shifting realities, in which we sometimes find that rather than one fixed set of historical facts, we can find ourselves remembering something different from what official historical–culturally correct–records suggest?

If we do exist within something like a holographic multiverse of ever-shifting realities, we could expect to witness what we now know as the Mandela Effect.  The Mandela Effect is the phenomenon where we actually do remember foods such as Haas avocados, and Stouffer’s Stovetop stuffing, for example. I live in California, and I always pronounced the name of these California avocados as “haaas” and I would have pronounced the word “hass” if that was how it was spelled, but I didn’t do that because it wasn’t spelled that way.  And now, it’s supposedly always been spelled “Hass” avocados.  With Stovetop stuffing, that’s a case where I clearly remember the TV commercials that very clearly stated this popular product was Stouffer’s stovetop stuffing, but now supposedly it’s always only and ever been Kraft stovetop stuffing.

And, it’s important to point out that if we are living in a holographic multiverse, as I suggest in my book, Quantum Jumps, we could occasionally expect to witness dramatic changes–such as witnessing ourselves or others undergo spontaneous remissions from injuries and illnesses.

For those of us witnessing reality shifts, quantum jumps, and the Mandela Effect, there is no need to provide “extraordinary evidence,” since those of us who are experiencers are not simply making “extraordinary claims,” but rather are simply sharing the facts of our personal experiences.  Thousands of first-hand case studies of these observations have been documented with dates, geographic locations, first-hand reports, and commentary since 1999 on the RealityShifters website.  Our ‘evidence’ exists in our awareness–in the form of qualia, which is associated with the so-called “hard problem” of consciousness.  How can you prove the concept of our unique, subjective experiences of consciousness–and reality–that we see in qualia?  This is called a hard problem, because it is not a matter that can be easily translated to materialistic form.  Similarly, we cannot prove the concept of the Mandela Effect, since it is a similarly hard problem.

As widespread as the assumption of a singular objective reality is, it directly conflicts with the idea from quantum physics that “quantum physics prohibits a single history,” as well as some recent quantum physics experimental findings that two observational devices at the same place and time can literally observe two different subjective realities.  Also, experience of the Mandela Effect is gaining traction and gaining ground.

Quantum Physics Prohibits a Single History

The purpose of the science of physics is to understand how the universe behaves by studying the behaviors of matter and energy through space and time.  Through such scientific study, physics has found some truly paradigm-shifting principles in quantum physics.

Physicists Stephen Hawking and Thomas Hertog ca-authored a paper in 2006, claiming that the Universe has no singular or unique beginning.  Hertog states, “Quantum mechanics forbids a single history.”  Hawking and Hertog referred to their theory ‘top-down’ cosmology, because instead of focusing primarily on seeking a fundamental set of initial physical laws under which the cosmos unfolded, it starts ‘at the top,’ with what we see today, and then works backwards to see what the initial conditions must have been.

The Observer’s Perspective Effect

C. Brukner’s 2019 paper described recent physics research experiments showing that two observational devices set up at the same place and set to make and record observations at the same time can–and sometimes do–make very different observations.  When we see how this physics experiment challenges objective reality, we see experimental results providing validation that we can expect to sometimes witness alternate histories from what others observe.  And this is exactly what we are observing when we notice reality shifts, quantum jumps, and the Mandela Effect.

The ‘Hard Problem’ of Consciousness

The hard problem of memory has a precedent in the so-called ‘hard problem of consciousness,’ because it delves into areas that materialist science based on material realism cannot adequately address or describe.  This hard problem has to do with why and how we have qualia, or first-person experiences that feel like something.  This is referred to as a ‘hard problem’ in contrast to such ‘easier’ matters of explaining various cognitive functions including:  learning, memory, verbal communication, and perceptual integration.

What I love about the so-called ‘hard problem’ is that it reminds me of the philosophical question, “Why is there anything at all?”  By going directly to contemplate the idea of nothingness–and somethingness–we find ourselves contemplating a cosmos outside Time and Space.  What might exist in such imagined realms?  When I imagine what lies outside of time and space, I get a sense that there exists a sense of existence in the form of wisdom of being–the inspiration behind knowledge and meaning.  We gain a sense of our true selves in the form of pure consciousness.

How can we Recognize Adjacent Realities?

Returning to the original question:  What if you want to jump into another world?  Maybe you already have!  Once we recognize that we indeed likely have jumped into other worlds, other realities–how can we learn to recognize when we are next to these adjacent realities?  We can be quite close to other possible realities in every moment.

You can ask yourself how you would feel when you are adjacent to another reality?  What are the kinds of qualia–the internal consciousness, “hard problem” stuff that can’t yet be fully recorded in accordance with methods and practices that are part of materialistic science.  There is no way to objectively document or measure such experiences, because they are so uniquely individual to each of our experiences.

But the good news is that you can tell when you are adjacent to another possible reality.  Just as you can tell when something good is cooking in the other room, because you can smell it–similarly, you can feel and sense when there is a good reality adjacent to your own.

And if you sense that there isn’t yet any such good reality, then you can change your internal emotions and energies to make yourself much more positive.  You can feel gratitude, and feel grateful.  You can feel reverence, and choose to experience Revhumanism (rather than Transhumanism).  You can become aware of the amazing opportunities in every moment, as you keep asking, “How good can it get?” and you can keep finding out.  This works even when life is as chaotic as it sometimes gets, such as during this pandemic year of 2020 going into 2021.

Acknowledging our ability to make different observations from different perspectives, we do well to remember to keep asking, “How good can it get?”  Let’s find out together!

At this time with robots, Artificial Intelligence, and the Singularity on the horizon we’ve reached a crossroads for the future of humanity—where we can either choose to put faith in technology to inspire us and lead the way (Transhumanism)—or choose to put faith in life force energy in each of us, the Earth, and the Cosmos (Revhumanism).

Long Prophesied Decision Point

Technologies are not inherently evil—the risk of loss of sovereignty comes from idolizing technologies as higher, greater, or more than a living conscious Cosmos, or God.

We can see we have reached a decision point that was prophesied thousands of years ago by many spiritual faiths and traditions. A picture of this decision point was literally carved in stone on the Hopi Prophecy Rock near Oraibi, Arizona. This rock tells the story of three previous human worlds being destroyed when people became greedy, worshiped technology as if it were a god, fought each other, and forgot the original purpose of humanity to honor the Earth as the source of life and sustenance.

Two paths go forward into the future; the higher path places faith on technologies, at the expense of caring for each other and the Earth, and it fizzles out and disappears. The lower path continues on indefinitely, and is for those humans who continue to care for each other and the Earth.

Transhumanism and the Singularity

Biologist Julian Huxley coined the word transhumanism in 1927, writing:
“the human species can, if it wishes, transcend itself.  We need a name for this new belief. Perhaps transhumanism will service: man remaining man, but transcending himself by realizing new possibilities.”

Modern-day transhumanism focuses on technologically augmenting human bodies and brains. Transhumanists seek bio-hacking solutions from genetic engineering, robotics, information and nano technologies to bypass natural biological limitations—including mortality. The promise of transhumanism ranges from wearable tech, to prosthetics, all the way to immortality through uploading a person’s neural network to a computer system.

The technological Singularity is envisioned as a point in time—perhaps by 2045—where futurists such as Ray Kurzweil, expect super-intelligent machines with artificial general intelligence to attain awareness at levels that humans cannot unplug or reverse.

This topic is near and dear to my heart: I’d love to see humanity grow into its best qualities, without surrendering agency of free will through over-dependence on technologies. It’s one thing to be shocked to realize we don’t know a friend’s phone number because we’ve come to depend on our mobile phones and devices to remember such things for us, and it’s quite another to reach a point where we stop thinking for ourselves regarding decisions that matter the most.

What is humanity’s ultimate endpoint?

While the Singularity may be unavoidable—mind-matter cyborg transhumans existing in a mechanical cosmos are definitely not my view of the pinnacle of human evolution.

We can envision our optimal future being created by us, based on what we collectively need, love, and imagine. 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.

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.

Sovereignty is a key concept in incarnational spirituality, recognizing our sense of living our life with purpose and for some reason. We have an awareness of having some original intent for our life. Sometimes we can get caught up in drama, and forget the purpose we are living with, but we can access and remember this original intention and purpose.

We can observe our thoughts and feelings at higher levels of self, without ‘having buttons pushed.’ We can rise above ‘fight or flight’ reactive responses, and view events free from anger or anguish over the past or anxiety about the future—feeling connection with our Best Possible Future Selves who are loving, joyful, fearless, compassionate, and reverent.

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.

Evidence of Human Evolution in the Mandela Effect

Evidence exists that humanity is actuating high levels of sovereign agency that we experience through increased awareness of alternate histories we call the “Mandela Effect.”

The Mandela Effect shows us that histories can change—that our memories of past events can differ noticeably from currently agreed-upon facts. Many people thus remember things that now officially never occurred, such as the heart being located slightly on the left, rather than in the center of our chests, for example. People are now sharing memories of different histories, and sometimes experiencing reality shifts where things appear, disappear, transform, and transport, as well as changes in the experience of time.

Insights from the Mandela Effect provide clues that we all naturally possess ‘quantum super-powers,’ that are best employed in accordance with spiritual wisdom. Shared experiences of Mandela Effects, reality shifts, and miraculous changes to reality demonstrate what profound differences observational perspective can make.

The majority of Mandela Effect experiencers are Empaths; Empaths (aka: Intuitive Feelers) comprise 25% of population, yet experience 75% of Mandela Effects. We see evidence in support of this concept of Subjective (rather than Objective) reality, in recent quantum physics experiments showing observers at the same place and time can witness different events.

We each have the ability to access much larger levels of self than we ordinarily acknowledge. At these levels of self:
— we can gain awareness of potential future events
— we can experience simultaneous possible realities
— we can recognize ways perspective influences reality
— miraculous reality shifts can be experienced

Humanity is actuating high levels of sovereign agency, with natural ‘quantum super-powers’ that are best employed in accordance with spiritual wisdom. Insights from the Mandela Effect and recent studies in quantum physics provide clues by which we can better envision a positive future for humanity founded in wisdom, connection, kindness, reverence, and love.

Choosing Revhumanism in Apocalyptic Times

“Apocalypse” is a word derived from the Greek verb apokalyptein, meaning “to take the cover off,” and is associated with times of unveiling and revelation. We are living through times of great change and unveiling in which our choice of perspective and what we put our faith in—can make all the difference in the future worlds we next experience.

With Humility, we acknowledge there exists a hidden order;
With Empathy, we see through the eyes of our heart;
With Reverence, we remember we are all connected.

Acknowledging our best possible future selves, we remember to keep asking, “How good can it get?”

As always, I encourage you to ask my favorite question any time you get the opportunity:  “How good can it get?”
