Over the years I’ve heard some amazing firsthand accounts from people who have had astonishing experiences involving houses vanishing. One might think it would be hard to misplace something as big as a house, yet remarkably, many people have witnessed houses vanishing, sometimes never to be seen again, and sometimes reappearing later on.
This last month I was intrigued to hear from a woman named Bekki in Norfolk in the United Kingdom about a house and horse that vanished… and then reappeared. She wrote:
Hi. My name is Bekki, I live in the UK and I hope you can help me (and vice-versa). It’s hard to explain what happened to myself and my two sons about 18 months ago. It’ll be a bit long I fear! We are all very into horses. When we drive home, we go the way that takes us past lots. On this day, our favourite two ponies weren’t in their usual field. I said ‘Maybe they are out on a ride?’ When we came to our normal turn-off, my youngest pointed straight ahead and said ‘this way’. So, despite NEVER having been up this road before , I said okay… A few hundred yards on, we saw a tell-tale lump of horse poop. Around the next bend, lo and behold, were the two ponies being ridden! Pleased to see them, my boys said ‘let’s go home now’. So I carried on driving, intending to find a spot to turn around. This is where it gets weird.
1) A few hundred yards on, we drove past, and briefly stopped to look at, a ‘heavy horse’ in a field, remember this is a road I have NEVER been down before (despite living less than 3 miles away). A distinctive new-build house was adjoining the field. As we were blocking the road, I drove on, saying ‘We’ll pop back another day to look at the horse’. Excited to find another gorgeous horse to visit! On reaching the end of the road, a road junction, I said to my eldest ‘Ah, I know where we are now’. I hate driving on the road it joined to having had an accident with a deer down there so I turned the car round and drove back, intending to familiarise myself with the road with the horse.
2) On the drive back, we missed the horse property. Thinking it must be because the road looked different in the opposite direction, I turned around and drove back the original way – STILL no horse, no house, yet everything else the same! I drove up, then down, another FOUR times before we gave up. Completely unable to explain the happening, we went home (very freaked out).
3) Here is the odd bit. Six months or so ago, I was driving home, alone, from the local town when I drove up behind a lady riding a heavy horse. The first thing I thought was – ‘that is similar to the horse in the ‘missing’ field. Maybe if I follow them, I’ll locate that darn missing house!’ So I turned down the road the horse and rider did, hoping it would lead me to the house, field and horse we’d not been able to locate since!
Now, this is a road I know very well, having worked at a fruit farm down there and having a friend live there. I kept back about 500 yards so not to spook the horse. Suddenly the lady signaled she was turning right and went into a driveway. As I drove past, I couldn’t see her – but my blood went cold! SAME house, SAME field and shelters, even SELLING bags of horse muck outside… When son arrived home, I just said ‘we’ll go for a drive’ didn’t mention horse, house or whatever. Anyway, as we drove up to the house, I sneaked a look in my rear-view mirror. His face was a mask of confusion. He started “Mum, this is the exact same house and field that…” we passed a year ago? It is! Except–I know VERY well the road the house is on. Had never seen it till that day (its new-ish build) BUT HOW ON EARTH did we SEE IT ALL, on a DIFFERENT ROAD, a YEAR EARLIER?! Three of us?!
Just for your reference, the two roads are approximately a mile and half apart, as the crow flies, and there are NO CONNECTING ROADS.
What happened to us that day? Do you have any idea? I’ve looked at time slips, but the stories I’ve read don’t quite fit?
One of the things we can all learn from reality shift experiences is that they are a regularly occurring, perfectly normal part of life, and we can expect to witness shifts in reality now and again. We can expect reality shifts to happen since we’d expect the same sorts of things we see on the quantum scale such as quantum entanglement, quantum teleportation, and quantum tunneling to occasionally manifest on the “macro” scale, and indeed they do! Another aspect from quantum physics is the observer effect, which means reality shifts when we’re watching–and yes, we can notice that happening as well.
I wrote in response to Bekki:
Thank you so very much for writing to me and sharing your amazing experience with the mysterious newly built house and heavyset horse that appeared in one location, vanished, and a year later reappeared on a completely different street. This definitely sounds like a reality shift to me, of the sort I’ve encountered in slightly different, yet fairly similar ways.
There are many stories shared on the realityshifters.com web site about buildings, doors, signs, and occasionally entire cities appearing and disappearing, as well as relocating … which seems on the face of it to be something so very strange and unexpected. I know what a relief it is to experience something like this with witnesses present, so you can reassure yourself that you didn’t imagine or dream the whole thing, but something quite unusual truly occurred.
Here’s an excerpt from my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World, in which I share a story about going for a walk with a couple of dear friends at the Berkeley marina, while talking about reality shifts, and asking if they’d ever noticed such things:
I met with two friends, Jan and Cliff, for brunch at a restaurant in the Berkeley Marina one seemingly normal day. We continued our conversation with a leisurely stroll around the marina, as we often enjoyed doing when we got together. I told my friends about some reality shifts I’d seen, and how much I wished they could see one, too … when one occurred right on the spot! We were walking together towards the pier, when my friend, Cliff, asked us, “Do either of you recall ever seeing that statue here before?” as he pointed at a giant sculpture of a sundial. Jan replied, “No … I don’t.” I felt tremendously excited, because I’d seen that sculpture there, but never when I was there with these two friends! The sundial seemed to rise up proudly towards the sun to greet us as we walked in awed silence to get a better look.
We walked around the ten foot tall concrete sculpture as children sat and climbed around on it. This installation is in a central location people notice, right in the middle of a square at the foot of the Berkeley pier. Amazingly, the sundial sculpture’s absence had previously allowed us to clearly see another giant sculpture situated up on a hill above the sundial when we were on the pier and walking back towards the shore … but now that the sundialwas there, we noticed we couldn’t see the other sculpture as well because it was partially obscured by the sundial. The other sculpture is a larger-than-life size Asian archer on horseback with fully drawn bow, aiming his arrow out over the bay—shooting over the sundial’s spot.
I told my friends the sundial sculpture had always been here when I had come here without them, but never when we were here together … until now. The sundial is chipped and worn, made out of concrete, and bears the following inscription:
“The peoples of the bountiful Pacific Ocean are brought together by the sweep of time. This sundial honors the citizens of Sakai Japan, the sister city of Berkeley. United in warm friendship and goodwill, the peoples of Sakai and Berkeley strengthen mutual understanding and respect through the exchange of visitors and cultural programs. This sundial is dedicated to the continuing friendship and growing association between Sakai and Berkeley. 1970”
I am deeply impressed that something as large and majestic as this sundial vanished and reappeared, grasping the magnitude of what else must be possible if such large things can so easily be transformed or transported in time and space. The sundial itself is a symbol that reminds me how love transcends space and time to unite all of us across oceans that physically separate us from one another. I feel great reverence for this universe that allows us to glimpse occasional insights as to how it materializes around us.
I hope you’ll enjoy watching and sharing my YouTube video summary of When Houses and Horses Disappear–and please feel free to leave comments either on this blog or on my YouTube video page!
Thinking about houses and horses disappearing and reappearing gives us an opportunity to recognize the possibility that right now, at this very moment, we are waking up inside a dream, witnessing how fluid reality can be. And all of this helps expand what we imagine possible when we contemplate my favorite meditative question, “How good can it get?!”
