Today I received a lovely message from a reader of my blogs, who wrote in part:
Three days ago, following a personal tragedy, I shifted into this reality where there is a great deal of underground material on shifting between parallel realities.
Then suddenly, from my perspective, the internet, including YouTube, was instantly absolutely saturated with this material, with related videos that never before existed suddenly having been there for many years.
I sensed immediately while reading this message that its author was describing what I’ve alternately referred to as reality shifts and quantum jumps… essentially, the unmistakeable feeling of having freshly arrived on the shores of a new reality. Yes! I felt myself nodding, while reading this message, I know how this feels!
With a traveler’s eyes of wonder, I look around with newborn eyes, seeing the world as if for the first time. To me, there is nothing quite as extraordinary as the experience of recognizing one has just made a leap–as pure consciousness–from one world of physical reality to another. The signs are unmistakeable, as I find myself surrounded with histories people say “been that way all the time,” yet that I’ve never before seen or heard of.
The commenter on my blog continued:
This is different. This knowledge of quantum jumping, of course, existed in my reality (even though I wasn’t yet aware of it), yet this knowledge was simply not widely had amongst New Agers. And I can’t shake the feeling of how absolutely weird it is that I have come to realize, to deeply realize, that I have not been manifesting my reality, but rather, shifting into parallel realities, that I’ve not been changing my reality, but instead changing to different realities – ironically, though shifting into a reality where this information is readily available.
This reader makes an excellent point. There is indeed a difference between manifesting and quantum jumping, and as with all good things, the difference is found in ourselves–and who we think we are.
Manifesting VS Quantum Jumping
Are we manifesting… or are we quantum jumping?
How can we tell the difference?
It may seem at first a subtle distinction between a sense of “attracting what you wish to manifest” to “traveling to parallel universes,” but this distinction can be quite large. The so-called “Law of Attraction” (LOA) is based on identifying with a particular physical identity in a given universe of possibilities, in order that good things can come to those who manifest well. There is a sense in the LOA worldview that by changing your vibration through emotions, you can adjust your frequency to best attract that which you most need and desire. While it’s possible to do this from a pure spirit perspective, most practitioners focus on who they are as physical human beings, with an expectation that everything that matches the vibration they set will come to them.
Quantum jumpers, on the other hand, are individuals who learn to identify with existing in a state of pure being–of consciousness. They imagine other possible me’s and you’s in other parallel universes who we can tune into and receive assistance from, in order to make a leap of consciousness from one universe to another. This feeling of being pure consciousness is the state of mind obtained during lucid dreaming, and it’s also the state of consciousness experienced by many near death experiencers (NDE)–and both of these groups of consciousness travelers report amazing and astonishing shifts in reality in which things and people and even their own bodies make amazing transformations and changes. Such experiencers describe how their consciousness made the journey to new worlds in which what is sought also seeks, and in which histories change along with possible futures every time we make a jump to a given reality. Some type of meditation or other means to access a state of pure consciousness (such as lucid dreaming, or NDE) is required for successful quantum jumping, and it’s helpful to take action once landing on the shores of a new reality.
