The Mandela Effect
The phrase “Mandela Effect” refers to people agreeing that they remember something differently than is officially recorded as being historical fact. The reference to Mandela is to the South African political leader, Nelson Mandela, since some people clearly remembered having seen his funeral back in the 1980s, which was decades before he later subsequently died in 2013.
Thanks to online discussion boards and social websites, people have been able to more quickly and easily confirm with others the specific things they remember differently than has officially “always been true.”
Some examples of commonly reported types of Mandela Effect include such general categories as: celebrities being alive again; changes in words in books; changes in words in movies; lyric changes in songs; some key visual elements in movies being different; product names and logos being different; changes to geography; changes to human anatomy; visual changes to animated characters; changes to buildings; changes to names of various foods; and changes in when songs, books, and movies were released.
The Mandela Effect invites us to pay closer attention. Like a game of “spot the difference,” we browse our memories of how we remember songs, books, movies, celebrities, TV shows, and news events to have been–and then compare our memories to what is officially recognized as being (presumably) unchangeable historical fact. We primarily must rely upon our own individual memories of what we had thought to be true, and we can sometimes benefit from comparing notes and checking with others who might remember things similarly to the way we do. People usually feel relieved to find others who do remember things the same way they do, especially when those memories no longer match the recorded facts.
Mandela Effect Examples
You can check to see if you might be Mandela Effected, too, by taking a self-test, to see what you remember. The idea when taking such a memory test is to go with whatever answer you remember first, rather than trying to figure it out, or think too much–and there really aren’t any ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ answers:
(1) In the animated Disney film, “Snow White,” the wicked witch gazes into her mirror saying, “_____________ Mirror on the wall… “
(2) What color are Star Wars android C-3PO’s legs?
(3) Where in your chest is your heart located?
(4) In Isaiah 11:6 in the Bible, what animal lies down with the lamb?
(5) The famous line in the film Field of Dreams is, “If you build it, ____ will come.”
Once you’ve reviewed your answers, you can check at the bottom of this article to see how your answers compare. It’s possible that you may remember some things differently than purportedly ‘have always been true,’ and if so, congratulations! You have experienced the Mandela Effect!
Why is the Mandela Effect happening now?
Some of the possible reasons for why people are experiencing the Mandela Effect have to do with:
(1) dismissing it as an artifact of false memories and confabulation;
(2) attributing it to some kind of conspiracy;
(3) taking it as evidence that we are living inside a simulation; and
(4) considering it as awareness of changes in human consciousness.
My take on the Mandela Effect is that we are experiencing changes in human consciousness, both on a collective and individual scale. After researching the Mandela Effect and reality shifts for over 20 years, it’s clear to me that false memories cannot account for all of the shifts that I and others have seen. The scope and scale of the shifts are far larger than any conspiracy.
While each person retains free will to ask questions and to be answered by Nature in such a way that might be completely unique to them, we also can view the Mandela Effect as a beautiful invitation to break free from limiting ideas. We can see evidence in the Mandela Effect of quantum behavior and phenomena that has long been thought to be confined only to “the quantum realm.” Such quantum phenomena as: non-local effects; superposition of states; entanglement; teleportation; bi-causality (going forward and backward in time); and tunneling. Yet with each passing day, we are finding ever-increasing evidence that quantum phenomena likely exists at every level of reality.
With the advent of the Mandela Effect, humanity is receiving an invitation to think outside the Boolean true-false box, and enter into a wonderfully interconnected, dynamic reality based in quantum consciousness.

The Power of Soulfulness
There is an amazing connection between soulfulness, Mandela Effect and reality shifts.
I’ve been re-reading a book by Jacob Needleman, I Am Not I. A key idea in this book is that Jacob Needleman has written a book about his older self, Jacob, meeting his younger self, Jerry. The idea here is that different levels of self can–and often do–interact. This book delves into the concept of soulfulness; it plays with the very concept of true self identity.
Awakening the Sleepwalkers
What Needleman recalls that Gurdjieff recommended most often to everyone was to:
“remember yourself always and everywhere.”
That’s a tall order, because following this directive really takes us out of our sense of self-definition by measurables. In the realm of measurables, we might think, for example, “I’ve been a teacher for this many years,” or “I’m a student at this level,” or “I earned this many dollars,” or “I’m married,” or “I’m divorced.”
These types of measurable statements might be considered to be accurate descriptors of yourself, but somehow they don’t get to the core of a sense of intense “I-ness.” There is an intense, transformative “I Am” quality. When you have this intense quality, you know it.
Jacob Needleman writes about the necessity of loving the universe in his book, I Am Not I.
For myself, I feel a necessity of feeling reverence, which is a combination for me of love and real respect–respect at a very real, divine quality. What Jacob Needleman and I share is that there has to be some level of divinity–of God. There has to be some recognition of grand ideas, big ideas, good ideas. This corresponds with my current fascination with the question, “How good can it get?”
What happens next is that when we go there when we keep remembering that soulfulness–when we allow ourselves to go there–I’ve observed over and over again that reality shifts occur. Our needs definitely will be met.
I notice myself in one state of measuring and observing–then I can drift my mind, and I notice that “I am”… with a grand sense of timelessness, infinite, soulfulness, meaning, purpose, value, and reverence.
From there, I’m not making small wishes of things I wish for my own comfort, but instead I’m getting to a place of recognizing that all my needs are being met. They have always been met. And when I give back by choosing to be of service to the highest, greatest place of goodness that I can possibly imagine, then indeed I do find out how good it can get.

I’m fascinated by news this past month of exciting results from a quantum physics experiment that according to the MIT Technology Review appears to provide evidence that two people can observe the exact same event, see two different things happen, and both be correct.
Observers Witness the Same Event Differently
Physicists at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh succeeded in bringing a classic Gedankenexperiment (thought experiment) out of the realm of pure conjecture and into the real, physical world of a physics laboratory. The thought experiment requires two people to observe one single photon–which is a quantum, or indivisible, unit of light. Quantum particles can behave as either particles, or as waves, settling into one state or the other (particle or wave) at the precise moment it is observed. All the rest of the time when the particle is not being observed by someone, it exists in a ‘superposition of states’ in which it can be considered to be simultaneously both ‘particle’ and ‘wave.’ When a second person is unaware of the first person’s observational measurement, this thought experiment proposes that the second person who is unaware of the first person’s measurement might be able to to confirm that the photon still exists in a quantum superposition (undecided) state.
Scientists including Caslav Brukner at University of Vienna in Austria and Massimiliano Proietti at Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh took this experimental concept and created an experimental apparatus involving lasers, beam splitters, and six photons to be measured by various equipment representing the role of the two observers. Preliminary results appear to provide real evidence that within quantum physics, our assumption of shared objective reality may be inaccurate.
Welcome to the new Quantum Age, featuring quantum logic! With this new physics experiment supporting the idea that two people can observe the same event, see two different things happen, and both be correct, we are catching glimpses of the way Nature operates. In Nature, we witness such things as: instantaneous species mutation to the most advantageous possible adaptation, and plants routinely performing photosynthesis at more than 90% efficiency. Lactose-intolerant organisms have been observed to adapt to a new lactose-based food source when it was the only one available, by making an evolutionary leap in one generation. All photosynthesizing plants are performing miraculously efficient feats of storing energy from incoming photons, far beyond any human photovoltaic technologies.
When viewing the way so many natural systems seem able to ‘jump to the best reality,’ I can’t help feeling that we’re witnessing nothing less than some kind of deeper, hidden underlying awareness at work–far beyond what materialists might claim to be in charge. Philosophers who share my sense that we are witnessing some kind of optimalism at work include Nicholas Rescher, author of a book on this topic called Axiogenesis. I enjoy taking conscious part in this evolution by consistently asking, “How good can it get?”
The Second Quantum Revolution
I predict that we are now at the dawn of witnessing so-called ‘quantum phenomena’ moving out of the so-called ‘quantum realm’ ever increasingly in view in our everyday macroscopic lives.
When I gave a talk for Marin Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) this past month before having seen news of this experiment, I mentioned the famous EPR paper, as well as Wigner’s Friend, Quantum Zeno Effect and EPR steering–but where all of this gains traction and significance is in the context that we are now officially entering the “second quantum revolution” in which macro-scale quantum technology is being created now. This new quantum technological race will feature engineering devices bringing ‘quantum scale’ phenomena into the macroscopic realm for applications in computing, communication, encryption and more. Macroscopic quantum systems have been developed recently in laboratories around the world, and with such fierce competition, we’ll soon be seeing astonishing breakthroughs, such as entangled diamonds.
Mandela Effect, Reality Shifts, and No Objective Reality
Physicists involved with this recent experiment, Massimiliano Proietti and his colleagues, state that, “The scientific method relies on facts, established through repeated measurements and agreed upon universally, independently of who observed them.” Yet we are now glimpsing some of the first clear evidence that such assumptions can be proven false. We are starting to see that the physicist Eugene Wigner’s idea that two scientists might have two different experiences while witnessing the same event appears to be proving to be true.
News of these experimental results is validating for the work I’ve been doing these past 20 years… and very exciting in terms of the implications for how humans can truly address all seemingly ‘impossible’ problems and situations–of every size, shape, and variety! After 20 years of waiting for such an announcement, I’m pleased to see these experimental results that provide validation that we can expect to sometimes witness alternate histories from what others observe. When we recognize that such subjective observation of ‘facts’ is constantly taking place, and that this can help provide a foundation by which we can better understand what is going on with the Mandela Effect and reality shifts, we can gain renewed confidence that humanity can address all seemingly ‘impossible’ problems and situations.
Welcome to the Quantum Age!

My preference for a reality shifting and quantum jumping approach is a more spiritual (rather than magickal) practice, in which I acknowledge a higher order of divine love and awareness, and respect myself and others as being part of this greater, interconnected whole.
While it’s tempting to think we know what we want, there is a genuine risk any time we neglect to consider what we genuinely need, and what our hearts most adore and truly care about. We can gradually come to learn such spiritual truths as the value of compassion and kindness, yet we can sometimes succumb to various fears and doubts, as well as all manner of other issues such as greed, pride, or jealousy.
There is a risk any time we make a mistake of confusing egoic, selfish interests for holistic intentions. And just like King Midas came to regret having his wish granted that everything he touched turn to gold, so too can we come to regret getting the very things we might at one moment in time think we most need.
Many people write to me, requesting steps to follow by which they can shift reality in desired ways. Such steps would be along the lines of a ‘right brain,’ action-based or ‘yang’ approach to reality shiftnig. While there are some occasions where such steps can be employed, it’s been my experience that the best results in my life occur thanks to a Spiritual Approach to reality shifting. So what’s the difference, you might well ask. Let’s take a look.
Magical Approach to Reality Shifting
Magical approaches to shifting reality paved the way for much of our modern-day science, with interest in keeping records, taking note of observed patterns for success, and following steps that have historically proved to generate good results.
Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) chief scientist, Dr. Dean Radin has recently published an excellent book describing a magical approach to reality shifting, Radin’s scientific exploration of “Real Magic” has nothing to do with trickery, sleight-of-hand, nor the occult, but truly is the real deal, falling into three categories: “mental influence of the physical world, perception of events distant in space or time, and interactions with nonphysical entities.” These three can also be known respectively as: force of will, divination, and theurgy. Radin describes how magic is a natural part of our daily lives and reality, accessible to us all. Declassified documents from the American government’s review of such programs as remote viewing (also known as a valid “information transfer anomaly”) meet all recognized statistical and methodological criteria.
Spiritual Approach to Reality Shifting
A spiritual approach to reality shifting could be considered to be something similar to a “right-brain” approach, or a receptive “Yin” (rather than “Yang”) approach. In Carolyn Miller’s excellent book, “Creating Miracles,” Miller describes how people have faced potentially lethal situations and avoided victimization by realizing in the midst of their ordeal that they could find and project a higher state of awareness on the situation. Their feelings changed their situations so much that would-be muggers and rapists walked away from potential victims, and a car plummeting off the side of the road landed safely in a lake… that had never been there before.
Miller tells numerous true stories that all share a common thread… in a time of need, people can and do create miracles. All that is needed is an attitude of love and “miracle mindedness”. This attitude can overcome even the most horrific situations, bringing compassion to individuals who otherwise would show no mercy, and shifting reality in very profound ways.
What makes this book particularly fascinating and useful to me is that Carolyn Miller reviews dozens of stories to find some common threads… some ways that people have found to shift reality in these times of great stress:
Move beyond the limited perspective of ego’s worries and fears.
Expect a Positive Outcome
Instead of assuming that the situation will continue to go in a negative direction, expect a positive (or neutral) outcome.
Feel a meditative sense of detached, non-judgmental peacefulness.
It seems that by practicing achieving a meditative state on a regular basis, being optimistic, and being loving, we can predispose ourselves to experiencing wonderful miracles. I know this is true from my experiences with reality shifts!
I love the way Miller explains that it’s not necessary to believe in divine intervention in order to create miracles. She explains that people who simply keep the “miracle-minded” attitude can bring miracles to even the most hostile situations.
The Power of Asking “How Good Can it Get?”
Once we appreciate the value of adopting a spirtual approach to reality shifting and quantum jumping, it’s possible to recognize the power of guiding our attention and imagination and consciousness to investigate “How good can it get?” The significance of making this question our personal mantra in all circumstances might be hard to recognize, until we’ve personally experienced extraordinary reality shifting and quantum jumping results first-hand.

According to a new theoretical experiment, quantum physics indicates that observers witness different histories. Taking this concept to its logical conclusion, this suggests that you and I and others may not necessarily recognize the same historical events–and the very suggestion of such a possibility is sending shock waves through scientific communities who take as a core assumption that there must logically be only one set of true historical facts.
You may have heard that quantum physics has gained a reputation for including such things as, “spooky action at a distance,” and that it somehow involves a cat inside of a box that may or may not be dead–but quantum physics is looking even weirder still, thanks to contributions by theoretical physicists Matthew Leifer and Robert Spekkens, whose work I’ve been following with great interest, and citing in my published papers, such as Primacy of Quantum Logic in the Natural World.
At the heart of these new observations is the idea that different observers can witness different realities, such that contradictory pictures of reality are observed. This is described in a recent article written by Davide Castelvecchi, Reimagining of Schrodinger’s Cat Breaks Quantum Mechanics–and Stumps Physicists.
The headline here is perhaps a bit overly dramatic, as for all practical purposes, quantum mechanics can still be relied upon to deliver consistent results when it comes to it’s predictive abilities that we’ve relied upon for nuclear reactors, and that we are beginning to harness for up-and-coming new quantum computers. What has broken has less to do with the actual physical world breaking as our biased perspective of there being “one and only one historical past.”
The Observer’s Role in Determining a Cat’s Fate
The original thought experiment designed by Erwin Schrodinger involved placing a cat in a presumedly ludicrous situation where it’s fate rests entirely in the hands of a quantum random event, such as a vial of poison gas inside the cat’s small room possibly being broken open when the randomizing trigger for the poison vial is activated at a time of decay of a radioactive isotope. What Schrodinger originally found to be an outrageous notion was that, if we were to take quantum physics seriously, the cat inside the box with the poison vial could actually be considered to be BOTH alive AND dead–in a superposition of states–up until the moment when an Observer opened the box to check on the cat. At the moment of such observation, the cat was considered to now actually be either alive or dead, and no longer in the seemingly preposterous state of alive-and-dead.
Introducing a Second Observer
In a small refinement of Erwin Schrodinger’s original thought experiment (where no physical cats were actually harmed), Eugene Wigner proposed that we contemplate what would happen when we add to our experimental design of the Observer and the Cat in the box a friend of the original observer. We now have a Cat, an Observer, and a Friend–all waiting to see whether the cat in Schrodinger’s box is either alive or dead. And as long as the Observer does not look, we can say the cat can be considered to be in a superposition of states–both alive-and-dead. Once the Observer checks to see what the cat’s state actually is, we used to say that we now knew what the outcome is. Yet, another way of viewing this more complex system of observation is that we don’t really have a final answer until the Observer’s Friend becomes aware of the result.
Complex Systems Can Experience Different Pasts
Daniela Frauchiger and Renato Renner of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich shows that “if the standard interpretation of quantum mechanics is correct, then different experimenters can reach opposite conclusions about what the physicist in the box has measured.”
What’s new with this thought experiment is the creation of a more sophisticated conceptualization of multiple observers, such that there can now be two Wigner Friends, “Alice” and “Bob,” who are each conducting their own separate observations of a physicist Observer who they keep in a box.
What’s interesting about this experimental design is that now when the two Friends open their boxes, they will sometimes make observations that are inconsistent with one another.
While we do not yet have quantum computers available that can prove or disprove the hypothesis that we can expect to see differences in observations in more complex systems of observers, we are moving steadily toward a time when such quantum computers will be able to provide us with a definitive answer on what now appears to be proof of a lack of a singular factual history.
Mandela Effects, Reality Shifts, and Quantum Jumps
There has been a great deal of discussion about this new take on the classic Schrodinger’s cat experiment in physics circles, with some of the world’s top physicists, such as Stephen Hawking, long ago having already suggested that we may expect to see, for example, physical evidence of there having been many original “big bangs” at the time of the creation of our universe. Hawking co-authored a paper on this topic with Thomas Hertog in 2006, Populating the landscape: A top-down approach.
I suggest this discussion about observers witnessing different possible past ‘truths’ and ‘facts’ should be very much part of conversation amongst those of us who are noticing such things as Mandela Effects, reality shifts, and quantum jumps. When we recognize that there is scientific precedent for such phenomena, we can hopefully glean insights about the true mysterious workings of Nature, while appreciating our good fortune in sometimes getting to see evidence of such things ourselves.

Why are some of the rarest personality types more likely to experience Mandela Effects and reality shifts? While Myers-Briggs “Intuitive Feelers” account for only 25% of the overall population, they are more likely than other personality types to observe Mandela Effects, reality shifts, and quantum jumps.
While I was preparing to present a talk in Boulder, Colorado about ETs, AI, and Evolution of Human Consciousness, part of the material I was presenting has led me to recognize patterns that I’d not seen before, linking personality with observation of Mandela Effects and reality shifts.
What I noticed was that personality types who were most likely to recognize Mandela Effects were the Intuitive Feeling types, as identified by the Myers-Briggs personality test.
Myers-Briggs Personality Test
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality inventory was developed by mother-daughter team Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter, Isabel Briggs Myers. Myers and Briggs applied some ideas and insights of Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Jung, to recognizing human personality characteristics.
The key principle underlying the foundation of this personality test is that much seemingly random variation in peoples’ behavior can be recognized to actually be orderly and consistent, because peoples’ behavior is driven by intrinsic differences in individual preferences. The Myers-Briggs test is thus a test that one can take to identify their own individual preferences between such things as preferring to focus on the internal (Introvert) or external (Extrovert) world.
The resulting sixteen personality types thus present us with an overview of various personality types intended to capture the core essence of how people might view the world from those preferences expressed through their personalities.
It’s important to point out that personality type does not indicate nor represent character, and there is no ‘best type.’ While some types may be more or less common in various cultures and globally around the world, they are simply ways of viewing the world.
Within these sixteen types another pattern can be seen in which some people have “NF” at the core of their personality type. This “NF” stands for “Intuitive Feeling” and INtuitive Feelers (NFs) are one of the basic temperance types, the others being: INtuitive Thinkers (NTs), Sensate Judgers (SJs), and Sensate Perceivers (SPs).
Myers-Briggs Intuitive Feelers (NF)
Some people call Myers-Briggs Intuitive Feelers “Catalysts,” and others call them “Empaths.” These are people, like myself, who primarily experience Mandela Effects and reality shifts.
I’ve recently conducted surveys within Mandela Effect and reality shift experiencer groups, and found that while the overall population of NF types is about 25%, these personality types comprise the majority of Mandela Effect and reality shift experiencers, at percentages exceeding 75%. While correlation is not equivalent with causation, we can nonetheless take note of this remarkable connection between people who have Intuitive Feeling personality types and those who are currently in the majority of experiencing Mandela Effects and reality shifts.
The Myers-Briggs personality test appears to be a good place to look when considering the evolution of human consciousness, to notice what kind of changes, if any, are occurring with the populations in the USA and around the world in these personality types.
Myers Briggs Personality Tests
If you haven’t taken your Myers-Briggs personality test, you can go to a website like HumanMetrics where you can answer a bunch of questions and get a relatively quick, free assessment. You can also take the official Myers Briggs instrument online at the official Myers-Briggs website. Once you get your results, you can see if your personality type looks right to you. There have been many applications of Myers-Briggs personality tests over time.
If you’d like to participate in a survey, and you have experienced reality shifts, alternate histories or Mandela Effects, here’s the link to a survey for Mandela Effecteds and reality shifters: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfXqpiRzq8fqH4Er1fd9DlG7pFuIQqjKlGAk0dEykgunLXjZQ/viewform?c=0&w=1
If you’d like to participate in a survey and you have NOT (yet) noticed that you have experienced reality shifts, Mandela Effects or alternate histories, here’s a link to that survey for NON-Mandela-Effected folk: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSd2UpP0xi65cWB48noW4Hy7eXYIGur3UOMN18hoP09mMsYvQw/viewform

There are some truly fundamental concepts about the nature of reality within the principles of entanglement and lucid living, which together provide us with a glimpse of what’s behind synchronicity when we are filled with positive energy and feeling grounded, and the so-called ‘Pauli Effect’ when we are jangled with discordant energy and ungrounded.
One version of the idea of lucid living is shown in the movie ‘Inception’ in which events unfolding around characters who are actively dreaming can be steered by their consciousness. In the movie, Inception, it’s pointed out that you can never remember the beginning of a dream, dreams that seem to cover hours might only last a short time, and often you don’t know that when you’re dreaming. You also don’t necessarily know how you are connected–or entangled–with others, and whether you are in their dream, or they are in yours, or you are together in a shared dream. In the movie, Inception, a dreamer can tell whether he is in a dream or whether he’s awake by spinning a top. This dream marker thus provides a clue by which it’s possible for him to know whether he is dreaming or awake.
When we notice Mandela Effects, reality shifts, and quantum jumps, we are actually playing with reality just like we would do in a lucid dream, as I mention in my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World. Some ancient meditative practices of Tibetans and shamans going back thousands of years recognize that even when we are awake, we are still in a sense dreaming. This awareness includes the idea that you have access to awareness of being one with everything that is, and there is therefore an entanglement that is happening between you and the universe. And through this connection, we are capable of exerting non-local effects.
What this means is that it’s possible for us to sometimes have synchronicities when we’re in a very highly-charged, positively charged state while being relaxed and energetically grounded. So we might say something, and suddenly we notice there they are–or they might phone or text or email us. Or we might say something or think about something, and notice that same thing is on the radio or TV show that we’re watching or listening to. There’s no way we could have affected those shows real-time, so it’s an obvious synchronicity.
Synchronicity & the ‘Pauli Effect’
Synchronicity is a term coined by psychologist Carl Jung to signify “the simultaneous occurrence of two meaningful but not causally connected events,” or as “a coincidence in time of two or more casually unrelated events which have the same or similar meaning… equal in rank to a causality as a principle of explanation.” Synchronicity is the occurence of a physical event in the world which occurs at or near the same time that it is being discussed or thought about. Carl Jung had an amazing synchronicity once where he was talking to someone about a scarab beetle, and just then a scarab beetle showed up at his window.
Many of us have had similar synchronicities. I find it very interesting that one of Carl Jung’s friends was physicist Wolfgang Pauli, who started experiencing bizarre phenomenon. Pauli wanted to know what was going on, and to better understand the psychology behind some of his experiences, and he consulted with his friend, Carl Jung. Pauli himself was quite well-known amongst the physics community as someone you don’t want to invite to your laboratory, because if he comes, the equipment breaks down. So those who might have been wanting to demonstrate an experiment can’t because once Pauli arrives, nothing works. Everything would seem to stop functioning as soon as Pauli entered the room.
This so-called “Pauli Effect” is an example of another kind of entanglement of the sort that can happen when you are not grounded. There’s an energetic effect that can occur that I’ve experienced. Before I regularly practiced energetically grounding myself, I would walk into rooms and the equipment would fail. I know what that feels like, and it’s not fun: the lightbulb blows out, the appliances break down, the computer stops working. So I quickly learned that I need to stay grounded when I’m doing martial arts, when I am doing Tai Chi, when I am doing lower abdominal breathing and basically boosting my inner Qi / Ki to high levels–then I need to stay grounded. This “Pauli Effect” is thus something like the flip side to synchronicity.
Lucid living is analagous to having a lucid dream. In a lucid dream, dreamers often recognize you can look at your hand in a dream and notice, “My hand looks a little different.” The other weekend I was away from home, and in my dream I went back home to check on things. In my dream, I was walking through my house toward the front door, and I opened the front door in my dream, but then there was a car outside of the door, blocking everything. It was a little tiny white car on my porch, completely blocking me from being able to open my front door. So in my dream, I looked at my hand, and I could easily expand it to be very big. I was surprised to see the car on my porch, so that woke me up inside the dream. Then I knew I was dreaming so I could just make my hand really big, pick the car up, move the car, and then go back to being “normal” and walk through the front door as usual. That’s an example of lucid dreaming.
When we have reality shifts and Mandela Effects, these are capable of getting us to ask the question, “WHY are these things happening?”
When we ask this question, you might remember when you were little and adults might annoy you by answering your questions of “Why?” with the answer, “Because!” This answer in this case is a good one, since when you look at the parts of the word because you find: Be Cause. This is a clue that you–as consciousness– are the cause of reality shifts and Mandela Effects.
When we globally work together, we are literally capable of changing the world, so you can get global effects.
In the movie, Inception, there was a spinning top that helped characters in that science fiction movie recognize that they were in a dream, and not totally in the real reality. You can actually move your level of observation back a step, and that’s the key principle of all of these ideas of reality shifting, Mandela Effects and quantum jumps. The idea from quantum physics is that the Observer who is observing the other observers is the one who’s going to get the outcome of that entire entangled network of observations. That final level Observer is the one who can call the shots and decide what’s going on.
The big idea here when considering entanglement and lucid living is to, as always, keep asking “How good can it get?” Stay positive, and realize that when you leave that positive question open-ended and evolving, it’s possible to find win-win solutions for all of us.
