One of the best ways to overcome anxiety, stress, or worries about money is by listening to and learning from your subconscious feelings about money. Personalized positive statements of affirmation can be created to help you increase positive feelings about and experiences with money. 

I love hearing from people who have questions about how to overcome inner blocks and barriers to prosperity, money, and finances, because addressing this area can immediately bring people to a place in which they can then feel better equipped to address other challenges that inevitably arise.

One reader wrote, “I have been struggling with my money inflow for quite some time now, I worked on it over the years and felt like I am getting closer and closer to a ‘breakthrough’ in this area. Still it is hasn’t happened yet. And I am suspecting that this is due to some subconscious belief or a blind spot. So my question goes something like that: What does it take to turn that around and have that breakthrough RIGHT NOW. Whatever I have to look at or have to do I am ready to face it, because I simply can’t go on like this anymore. I deserve abundance on all levels, and therefore also in the form of money, like everybody else does. NOW.”

When I read this question, I realized this question applies to more than just this one individual, and is actually a matter of great importance in many peoples’ lives. Lots of people notice stresses and strains from going through various life transitions, and when this happens, become suddenly aware that what had been working isn’t working any more.

RealityShifters Guide to High Energy Money

High Energy Money

I can appreciate how challenging it can feel to overcome money anxiety and energy blocks associated with money, which is a big part of the reason why I wrote my book, RealityShifters Guide to High Energy Money.  High Energy Money contains a self assessment section that you can read through, to help you find what may be negatively influencing how you feel. These feelings often can be felt in the form of physical sensations in your body, that you can start listening to and learning from.

The key idea is to locate the statements about money that might be in that book or that you might find that “trigger” or activate a tightening, clenching, or anxious feeling in your body. You can tell when this happens, so when it does, you can take each of the statements you’ve reacted to and flip them around to their opposite–so you will end up with positive affirmations that are uniquely tailored to addressing your specific needs and issues.

This list of affirmations is your “energy medicine” and something you will benefit most from reading out loud so you hear your own voice speaking, as you say each affirmation–and then FEEL how your body responds. Your body’s response is the key to indicating to you exactly how you are genuinely feeling, and this response is your indication of how helpful your affirmations actually are.

For example, if you had an issue with money such as:

“I doubt my ability to achieve financial goals”

You can tell that is an issue if you feel a physiological reaction to it, such as tightening of your chest, or clenched muscles. With this indicator, you can then create a personalized affirmation such as:

“I feel a sense of excitement setting financial goals.”

The very best affirmations will be ones that inspire truly good physiological feelings in your body when you hear yourself say them out loud, and they are effective for as long as you feel such good feelings as: excited anticipation, relaxation, and joy. When affirmations no longer seem to produce much of any reaction, that’s how you know it’s time to create new ones that give you a fresh sense of invigoration.

When creating and saying affirmations, I find it helpful to envision and imagine what is in keeping with your more affluent possible future self. For example, you can envision yourself at the airport in the capital of the oil-rich United Arab Emirates, Abu Dhabi, waiting to catch your next flight to somewhere wonderful!

Meeting People Who Weren’t There Before

cl2015apr1It’s one thing to notice a statue, tree, building, or empty lot where you didn’t recall one having been before, acknowledging that yes, such things can happen, when we expect to see occasional macroscopic evidence of quantum effects. It’s quite another to notice a person who you’re fairly confident didn’t previously exist. While I have observed and written about people literally showing up as if out of thin air in my book Reality ShiftsI had assumed they were teleporting from one spot to another, more than actually appearing with a complete backstory and history out of the blue, as if they’d always been here.

When we contemplate the relatively large number of first-hand accounts of having seen people alive again after previously having been reported deceased, we might suspect we would also occasionally notice people showing up who we’re certain weren’t there before. I am one of the 27% of the people recently surveyed who reported having “seen dead people and animals alive again” (Quantum Jumps: An Extraordinary Science of Happiness and Prosperitypage 98). I remember hearing the news of Nelson Mandela’s death when he was incarcerated many years ago, and again more recently. I also recall having heard news through the international news media of Jane Goodall’s passing away, shortly after Dian Fossey died, which struck me as such a senseless double loss of great primate researchers in such mysterious rapid succession–yet I was thrilled to learn she is still alive and well this past year, so I was able to see her give a talk in the San Francisco bay area when she came through on a recent book tour.

So if a person who we’re fairly sure has died can be alive again, why can’t a person we’ve never before heard of suddenly appear? There is a satisfying kind of logic to this phenomena, in the sense that just as one might suddenly find a lost item in an unexpected place, it’s just as possible to find a new person in our lives just when we need them most.

People Have Noticed I Wasn’t There Before

Over the past year, I’ve heard from two different individuals that I came into their lives as if out of nowhere. Both of these people separately told me, “If you had existed, doing what you’re doing, I would have known.” When conversing with me about the possibility that I hadn’t existed in previous realities, one person exclaimed last summer, “It may interest you to know that apparently you didn’t exist (at least not in your current version) in the timeline I came from;; because if you had, I would have heard of you A LONG TIME AGO!” I replied, “How fascinating that you hadn’t come across me, so I’d tend to agree with you that in previous realities you’ve come from, I didn’t exist as I do here. Cool!”

A second person told me she’d found me in January of this year, when she suddenly realized we’d been friends on facebook for quite some time, and had mutual friends. She felt certain that I’d popped up out of the blue, as it were, since she was positive she’d have contacted me much sooner. So now two people were both telling me within the last year that essentially they’re both fairly certain they’d been in realities in which I had not been writing books, publishing a newsletter, and conducting research in the field of reality shifts, quantum jumps, and consciousness.

One of My Favorite Quantum Cosmologists Appeared Out of the Blue

Part of the reason that these revelations from others that, “You didn’t exist before!” aren’t overly disconcerting to me is that I have had similar experience with this phenomenon. Even though I’ve heard trusted individuals, such as my daughters, or close friends, telling me they’ve seen me somewhere I know I hadn’t been (though typically I’d been daydreaming of being there), people showing up out of the blue seemed different. The difference mostly can be summed up as I can’t envision a world without me in it–or at least without a me who I’ve so come to know and love! I’ve had a similar experience with UC Berkeley’s Dr. Yasunori Nomura, who I first came across many months after having written my book, Quantum Jumps.

What’s so surprising to me about finding Dr. Nomura is that I did not come across any of his papers having to do with the Many Worlds of quantum physics being one and the same as the multiverse, despite my in-depth quest to find such papers while conducting research for my book, Quantum Jumps.  This is surprising to me, since I conducted a very thorough research search of original papers written in the field of quantum physics and quantum cosmology, and because Dr. Nomura is an especially prolific writer of top-notch papers in these fields that I’d been researching so extensively. Not only has he written an excellent paper on the subject of my greatest interest, but he is now shown to be the first to have published his ideas about the many worlds of quantum physics being the same as the multiverse, back in 2011. I appreciate his papers both for their clarity of presenting complex material, and for the way he utilizes graphics to help get his points across, and I loved interviewing him recently about his research work and ideas.

How Can this be Useful?

We can ask ourselves, “How good can life get when people show up out of the blue?” and discover the answer can be, “Very good, indeed,” since people are the true treasures in our lives. Finding a mentor, mate, friend, colleague, or partner just when you need them most can be one of the greatest blessings we could ever possibly receive.

Nelson Mandela Didn’t Die in Prison, and Why it Matters


“The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”   – Mark Twain

If you remember seeing media coverage of Nelson Mandela having died in prison in the 1980s, and you’re wondering why he’s just this month been reported dead again, you’re in good company. Mandela is one of the most commonly discussed celebrities who has been seen alive after having been reported dead. When we personally witness disparities between events we remember having happened and what reliable physical evidence suggests has occurred, we might at first feel a sense of dissonance. Fortunately, we need not stay confused, since noticing the differences between our memories and evidence in our current reality allows us to gain valuable direct experience of how malleable reality can truly be. Recent scientific discoveries suggest it’s quite likely that both this so-called “Mandela Effect,” also known as the “Alive Again” phenomena, are not new, as shamans and spiritual teachers from every continent and age of humankind have described for millennia.

The Mechanism Behind the Mandela Effect

We are fortunate to be alive at a time when scientists from several different branches of physics are converging on the idea that we live in a holographic multiverse… AND that everything including you and me have a truly quantum nature. When we put these two big ideas together, we see the mechanism by which we can understand and appreciate how things like intuition, synchronicity, the placebo effect, and spontaneous remission can transpire.

Evidence supporting the concept of many parallel universes being interconnected comes from UC Berkeley’s Raphael Bousso, whose view of reality has been gaining support ever since last year’s discovery of the Higgs boson. And there is further good news for those wondering, “Where are these other parallel universes?” Some of the first hard evidence of other universes was found just this year by theoretical physicist Laura Mersini-Houghton of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Carnegie Mellon professor Richard Holman, through cosmic background radiation data collected by the European Space Agency’s Planck telescope, which indicates the presence of other external universes to our own at the very moment of the Big Bang.

What Happens in the Quantum Realm Doesn’t Stay in the Quantum Realm

In much the same way that some people prefer that “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas,” many physicists have hoped that the weirdness known to happen in the quantum realm would remain safely confined there. This appears to not be the case, as evidenced in recent ground-breaking laboratory experiments over the past few years. Increasing numbers of studies with macroscopic scale objects, such as diamonds, are consistently and repeatedly demonstrating such distinctly quantum behaviors as entanglement–which Albert Einstein once called, “spooky action at a distance.” 

Other behaviors previously presumed to reside exclusively within the quantum scale including: superposition of states, coherence, and teleportation are also being witnessed on the macroscopic scale. This is happening to the point that a growing consensus is beginning to form amongst physicists, such as those surveyed at a recent conference that you and I and everyone and everything around us exists in a superposition of states.

This means that in one possible reality, you have not made a decision that resulted in your catching a cold, but in another possible reality, you have. We can expect to occasionally experience quantum jumps from one possible reality to another, particularly when we are aware that such leaps are possible. These jumps from one reality to another can be a lot of fun, as some of the world’s quantum jumping experts can attest.

And who, might you ask, are the world’s quantum jumping experts? Such experts include most of the world’s top athletes, medical miracle experiencers, heroes, survivors of close brushes with death, experienced meditators, beneficiaries of the placebo effect, and people experienced with hypnosis and lucid dreaming have experienced leaps to better possible realities. These people often trust intuition, and benefit from a sense of there being a connectedness between themselves and everyone and everything else.

Evidence of Possible Futures & Pasts 

As the saying goes, “extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.” But how can we find evidence demonstrating that alternate histories occur, when typically the only “proof” we have that a change has occurred resides in our own memories? One way to collect such proof is to rapidly document peoples’ experiences immediately following highly memorable historic events like the Kennedy assassination, the Challenger space shuttle explosion, or Princess Diana’s death. Such flashbulb memories provide reference points by which the same people can later be asked about.

Researchers Ulric Neisser and Nicole Harsch at Emory University investigated flashbulb memories of students immediately following the Challenger space shuttle explosion by collecting handwritten student reactions immediately following the disaster. When they followed up two and a half years later with the very same students, Neisser and Harsch were startled to find that students’ accounts of where they were and what they were doing when they heard the news were different from what they’d initially described. One student said, “That’s my handwriting, but that’s not what happened.” 

Kindness Matters 

Discrepancies between memories also often appear amongst people who were all together for a particular event, but later remember what transpired very differently. Chances are pretty good that you’ve encountered disagreements with people you’d usually consider competent and aware… except for when they insist something happened some way you know for sure couldn’t be true.

If we didn’t live in a holographic multiverse in which we’re all venturing in various directions to experience a multitude of different possible futures and pasts, we wouldn’t find the tremendous divergence between peoples’ memories. As we enter the Quantum Age, it’s time that we stop calling such differences in memory “false recollections,” in favor of “alternate recollections,” indicating respect for the fact that each and every one of us exists in a superimposed state, with access to many possible alternate histories, presents, and futures.

And most importantly, it’s time we truly show respect for one another and our multitudes of alternate histories and recollections.
