If you’re hearing news that Nelson Mandela is approaching death, and wonder how that can be because you recall him having died in prison many years ago, you’re not alone. Lots of people share this particular memory, and wonder why and how they have such clear impressions of all the international hoopla and attention for Nelson Mandela by presidents and world leaders… yet clearly as of 14 July 2013, Nelson Mandela is still alive. The fact that so many people remember an alternate history in which Nelson Mandela died in prison many years ago provides us with a valuable insight to the nature of reality… and the possible existence of parallel universes.
Many Previously Dead People Noted Alive Again
The “Mandela Effect” aka Alive Again phenomenon is gaining public attention as more and more people make note of people being announced dead by reputable sources such as the San Francisco Chronicle and CBS Evening News, who are later reported being alive. This type of reality shift continues to be one of the most surprising and amazing to me, as I am astonished to see people alive and well again who I know have died. Editorial error can be ruled out, since there are no retractions of false reports. Until you’ve noticed this sort of reality shift yourself, it’s hard to fully understand how shocking this experience can feel. Typically, whatever evidence I’ve had regarding the previous death report is unavailable, leaving me with the usual amount of physical proof that a reality shift has occurred… haunting memories of the other reality.
I wrote about my first “alive again” experience in my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World. It occurred in the 1980’s when my ex-roommate and neighbor’s cat, Ashes, was run over by a car and killed… only to appear in my backyard a couple of weeks later! I was astonished to see him again. He looked a little less tidy, like he hadn’t been keeping himself quite as clean as usual, but he was absolutely and positively the same cat. My husband reacted normally at first to seeing Ashes, until I reminded him, “Ashes DIED a couple of weeks ago!” My husband rubbed his chin and recalled more details, without any prompts from me. “Oh, yeah… he was hit by a car, wasn’t he?” I spent an hour petting and talking with Ashes, since I never thought I’d see him again after he’d died.
While folklore tells of cats sometimes having nine lives, people can really surprise us when they return from the dead. In addition to noticing Nelson Mandela alive again, as I discussed recently on the Money Laundering/Reality Shifts Coast to Coast AM show with George Noory, I’ve witnessed both actor Larry Hagman and biologist Jane Goodall’s untimely demises mysteriously reversed. Both of them were announced dead, only to show up again in new programs and speaking engagements. When Jane Goodall was reported dead, the news came as a huge blow to me. I had heard of Dian Fossey’s murder, and I recall thinking “How could Jane have died now?!” I was especially sad that we’d lost two women biologists working with primates. When a bit more than a year later I saw that Jane was speaking somewhere, I could barely believe it. I double-checked to confirm that sure enough, it was the same Jane Goodall, and now there was no record that she ever died!
I’m relieved to note that I’m not the only one who’s noticed these alive again shifts. Many people on the realityshifters discussion list have witnessed the alive again phenomenon over the years, and many more have written to me sharing their first-hand accounts of having seen people they know alive again after having previously died. Often these “alive again” people are celebrities, but sometimes they are acquaintances, neighbors, family, or friends.
In July 2005, RealityShifters conducted an Alive Again survey, asking the question: “Which people have you heard reported to be alive again after having heard trustworthy reports of their deaths?” At that time, 26% of respondents recalled having heard that Bob Keeshan (“Captain Kangaroo”) had passed away, yet were startled to see him alive again, 15% of respondents recalled Jane Goodall, 15% recalled Larry Hagman, 10% remembered Bob Hope having already passed away, and 10% remembered Jack Palance. Bea Arthur, Ed Asner, Walter Cronkite and Mariel Hemingway were each remembered by 5% of respondents as having already died. __________________________________________________

Alternate Histories… Clues that Reality Shifts
Remembering alternate histories–such as Nelson Mandela died in prison–is a great way to discover the truth: that reality shifts. This phenomenon is much bigger than peoples’ seemingly miraculous return from the dead–it also includes changes we notice in books, movies, and TV shows we’ve watched before that occasionally are very different from what we remember having seen before. Have you ever watched a movie a second time and wondered why the ending seemed so different? Consider the possibility that your mind’s not necessarily playing tricks on you–it really might have changed. Our observation that alternate histories exist is exactly in keeping with what a majority of physicists mean when they say we exist in a superposition of states. We don’t always exist in the same reality, in other words, because we and every other thing in this multiverse are capable of moving between possible universes, in accordance with Hugh Everett III’s Many Worlds Interpretation of quantum physics.
When we envision there are other possible realities–other parallel universes–we can get a sense of how it feels to move between them. These kinds of “jumps” are leaps of pure consciousness, and do not require that we pack our suitcases and prepare for a journey of the kind we’re accustomed to planning for. From the point of view of those who’ve made a leap between parallel worlds, many such jumps seem pretty normal at the time. Often only a few things seem different, sometimes only subtly so.
It is possible that when some people die, people miss them enough to retroactively change reality to one in which they are still living–provided we’re not 100% absolutely, positively convinced they’re definitely dead. Many of us who’ve heard news of a death on TV or a newspaper, or from a friend or relative are able to subsequently end up in a reality in which the earlier report was incorrect somehow. It seems to help to not have gone through intense grieving, as that seems to lock us into the reality someone we care about has died.
There is a scientific theory that describes how events can be changed after the fact through retroactive reality shifts, such as the ones discussed in the August 2004 Revise the Past issue of RealityShifters News. Experiments have shown how people can definitely revise the past by focusing their intention on retroactively changing the rate of decay of radioactive material, for example.
If you’ve ever remembered a different history than seems to be the case, including an instance of the Alive Again phenomenon, please leave a comment or email me with your experience. I share many examples of such reality shifts in my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, which provides exercises for shifting the world in a positive direction you’ll most enjoy.
