Berenstain Bears, Mandela Effect, Thanksgiving Thursday

Cynthia Sue LarsonThe biggest alternate universes popular meme recently has been the Berenstein Bears / Berenstain Bears

After sixteen years of regularly covering the topic of alternate histories–sometimes rapidly changing alternate histories–I’m delighted to see some specific cases of reality shifts and quantum jumps being so widely reported that some bigger media channels are taking notice recently.

While realityshifters like me are conservatively reporting at least one rather noticeable reality shift or quantum jump every day, many newcomers to this phenomena are viewing this subject with astonishment mixed with understandable incredulity as they discuss the “Mandela effect” or the “Berenstain Bears” controversy. For newcomers to the world of reality shifts, typically only one thing is currently being noticed as having mysteriously changed–so naturally their focus of attention is on the what, when, where, how, and why of that particular shift.

BerensteinBearsThe Berenstein Berenstain Bears story has this month been covered by MTVSeventeen magazine, the Globe and Mail, the New Zealand Herald, and the Mandela Effect website, While reporters maintain a cheeky attitude of playful irreverence when covering this topic, such as when New Zealand Herald reporter, Karl Puschmann, asks us to spell the name of the family of bears we came to know and love as children, “Did you spell it Berenstein or Berenstain? The former is right, but wrong. The latter is officially correct but undoubtedly incorrect. Everything we thought we knew is a lie. In case you’re wondering, yes, I am wearing my best tinfoil hat right now but let me assure you, this is only as a safety precaution. I’m not a nutter or anything. Honestly.”

NelsonMandelaPrisonThe Mandela Effect has gained similar traction recently, being reported this past month in the Corsicana Daily Sun, CKNW News Talk, and The Globe and Mail. I first wrote about having remembered Nelson Mandela passing away while incarcerated in my blog and the August 2013 issue of RealityShifters. Over the past couple of years, increasing numbers of people have remembered that they, too, have memories of Mandela dying years earlier than his more recent passing. There was so much interest in this so-called “Mandela Effect,” which is part of what RealityShifters has been calling the “Alive Again” phenomenon since May 2004, that Reddit readers talked about it recently, and that Fiona Broome created her Mandela Effect website in 2011.

While I’ve not yet seen such widespread reports of America’s Thanksgiving Third Thursday switch from the third to the fourth Thursday of November, I’m sure that’s just a matter of time. Over the past two years, I’ve been receiving increasing numbers of reports from people who do remember that American Thanksgiving “always” fell on the third Thursday of November. I published the first such report in the November 2013 RealityShifters, with follow-up confirmation from others with similar memories in the January 2015 RealityShifters, the February 2015 RealityShifters, and the May 2015 RealityShifters. Clearly, there’s some kind of momentum for remembering alternate histories, as increasing numbers of people are agreeing that they, too, remember things differently than supposedly have “always been true.” As one of the many people who remember Thanksgiving being on the third Thursday of each month, I can assure you I never would have scheduled International Aura Awareness Day to fall on Thanksgiving weekend. Which is why I’m quite certain that I’ve experienced a change in the past few years, despite there being no current historical record that such a change has occurred.

Oliver Sacks Dies… Again

RobinWilliamsRobertDeNiroThe perspective on such topics as these for realityshifters like me is naturally more accepting and relaxed, due to the steady flow of such “unusual” happenings in our everyday lives. For example, as I sip my morning cup of coffee today, I read today’s New York Times article about Oliver Sacks having passed away, I recognize this “news” story as one I read rather recently, just a week or two ago. In fact, it is so familiar that the photo of Robin Williams with Robert De Niro in Williams’ role playing a character based on Sacks in the movie “Awakenings” is the exact same one I saw very recently. I double-check the date of Oliver Sacks’ death, and see that as of today, he’s supposedly passed away today, Sunday, August 30th. I confirm this date by running a quick search engine check, to make sure it wasn’t really a couple of weeks ago, and all sources agree on today–Sunday, August 30th. Because I’ve already read a nearly identical version of this obituary, I am able to skim it quickly today, which I’m happy to find provides me with a bit more time to work on writing this blog post that I wouldn’t otherwise have.

As amazing as one might expect it should be to me for me to see an obituary run for a second time in the New York Times as if it’s fresh news all over again, such experiences with repeating events are really nothing new for me. I now realize that seeing New York Times front page obituary news more than once is similar to my having tired of overplayed songs on the radio in the 1970s as a youth, only to hear radio announcers gleefully announce the exciting world debut of those songs as “being played for the first time.” While I dismissed such things as somebody’s confusion in my youth, I’ve now become consciously aware of regularly occurring alternate histories, so surfing through them is a natural part of my life.

Joys of Reality Shifts: Lost Earring Returns

GoldEarrings2015augThere are times when being a realityshifter is truly a delight. Rather than accepting a given situation as fixed or unchangeable, I am keenly aware of just how flexible reality can be. During a walk one evening with a friend along a city sidewalk, I noticed upon reaching my car that one of my gold earrings was no longer on my ear. These earrings have special sentimental value to me, since I received them as a gift from my parents, and they’re pretty, too. I asked my friend to continue on without me, so I would have time to retrace my steps and see if I could find the earring on the sidewalk or street. I entered a state of relaxed, energized, loving awareness, as I walked back and forth along the several blocks of sidewalk and street. I imagined our recently deceased family dog was walking with me, since he always helped me find things–often by helping me visualize where they were. I’d told my friend and colleague, Dr. Beverly Rubik, about our dog’s death earlier that same day at lunch, and she’d told me how she’d heard bells playing when she buried her beloved pet dog–though strangely, there were no bells nearby. Though I’d not heard bells when burying our family dog, realized I was now hearing the sound of the UC Berkeley Sather Tower campanile bells playing a beautiful tune! I felt tremendous love in my heart for my dog, for the campanile music, and for being alive. I checked my hair and clothes one more time, hoping that perhaps my earring never hit the ground. I sensed a question posed to me, “Where would you like to find it?” My telepathic reply to this silent question was simply “Somewhere safe.” I’d much rather find it in good shape, rather than flattened by a 3,000 pound car driving by. I realized after retracing my steps for a second meticulous time, that as much as I adore my earring, I was willing to accept not being able to find it for the time being. So, for a few hours I ignored my missing earring and went to the Foundations of Mind conference reception party, visited with friends, and finally returned home. And that’s when, to my great surprise and delight, tucked deep down inside my clothes in a place that makes no sense for it to be–and certainly not without my having felt it and been annoyed by its presence–was my missing earring, in perfect condition, completely safe!

Primacy of Quantum Logic in the Natural World

So what’s going on? Occam’s Razor invites us to avoid over-complicating explanations of what’s going on. William of Ockham’s words on this matter were, “Pluralitas non est ponenda sine neccesitate,”  which translates to “entities should not be multiplied unnecessarily.” Curiously, or perhaps appropriately for our topic, much controversy occurs when scholars attempt to provide proper attribution for this quote, as noted in this article called “The Myth of Ockham’s Razor,” at the Logic Museum. In complete harmony with the fact that it appears there might currently be no physical evidence of any kind to support that William of Ockham is the true origination of the idea behind Occam’s Razor, the arrival of a fresh understanding of Quantum Logic in time to provide a framework for new Quantum Computers provides us valuable insights regarding our mistaken long-standing presumption that Classical, Boolean Logic is all that deductive logic is about. Obviously, this is not the case, as I summarized in my most recent blog post, Different Memories are to be Expected in the Quantum Age.

Reality as found in Nature, like consciousness itself, has a wild, unpredictable, untamed, nonlinear quality to it. The reality I’ve seen and come to know and love has occasionally changing “facts,” such as whether or not American Thanksgiving has always fallen on the fourth Thursday of November, Nelson Mandela died in prison, the Berenstain Bears were once known as Berenstein, or William of Ockham really was the first person to popularize the notion of “Pluralitas non est ponenda sine neccesitate”  in the Middle Ages. In Quantum Logic, both the past and the future can change, and often do. It’s up to us to bring conscious attention and awareness to what truly matters most to us. This is the foundation for the paper I presented this month at Foundations of Mind: A Dialogue of World Views, at UC Berkeley. The title of my paper is, “Quantum Logic is Primary in the Natural World.” It will be published along with other papers presented at the conference in the coming year.

Different Memories are to be Expected in the Quantum Age

DifferentMemoriesQuantumAge2015Have you noticed how things often aren’t the way you remember them? Or that your memories are sometimes quite different from your family and friends?

Different memories are to be expected in the Quantum Age. Facts do not always stay fixed, and we will increasingly recognize changes in the way we remember the past that differ from previous memories. Noticing differences in the way we remember previous events is an intrinsic part of the true nature of reality. I write about the way our memories can be observed to change in our own lives, and in relationship to friends and family in my book, “Quantum Jumps,” where I write about “flashbulb” memories, and the way we can observe shifts in reality in which people don’t agree on what happened, since they recall different pasts.

We’re living in an extraordinary time, as quantum technology brings humanity to the brink of entering the Quantum Age. At this juncture, some surprises are in store for everyone, as we finally begin to acknowledge that Boolean logic is seen to be a subset and special case of quantum logic.

What we think of as analytical logic is thus partially complete, partially true. Quantum logic includes a much broader awareness of four-fold logic, similar to logic as long understood in Asia, in which we do have binary categories of “True” and “False,” but we appreciate there are even larger categories of “True-and-False” and “Not-True-Not-False.”

Charles Babbage

Charles Babbage

Quantum logic is necessary in order that quantum computers can be programmed, just as Boolean logic sprang into being in 1847 in conjunction with Charles Babbage developing the first programmable device with his Babbage computer–which was the forerunner of all of today’s classical computers. George Boole’s Boolean logic had not really been necessary prior to the advent of classical computers, but in the 1800s we suddenly did have a need for a kind of logic that could be relied upon to get consistent answers to problems. We take for granted that rational thinking is equivalent with Boolean logic, yet Boolean logic is certainly not the only kind of logic that exists. It is a relatively straightforward logic in which decision trees can be easily understood in terms of Boolean logic gates, making it perfect to be at the heart of the classical digital revolution in the Information Age.

George Boole

George Boole

Quantum logic is required in order for computer programmers and developers to get their minds around quantum logic gates as the rush is on to develop the first true quantum computers. Quantum logic is generally recognized as being a more encompassing type of logic than Boolean logic, which is widely viewed as being a special case of quantum logic. What this means for our conceptualization of what is “logical” and “rational” is that a whole new kind of worldview is about to come into global prominence. Many assumptions that seem logical and rational according to Boolean logic are far too limited for quantum logic–and that includes assumptions that we only need pay attention to material things, that nonlocal effects can be ignored, that there is such a thing as an objective and uninvolved observer, and that we can have precise answers to problems. Quantum logic overturns all these assumptions completely–and also adds the exciting development of two-way logic gates through time. What we end up with is a completely new kind of logic that is far from what Spock often referred to on Star Trek!

BothPerspectiviesTrueIn fact, quantum logic has a lot more to do with synchronicity, a term psychologist Carl Jung coined 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.” While Spock would most likely have called synchronicity “illogical,” it may turn out to be totally logical when viewed from a perspective of quantum logic. Synchronicity is the occurrence of a physical event in the world near the same time it is being discussed or thought about, and the essence of synchronicity is felt, as there is often significance and meaning associated with it. Quantum logic will most likely begin to show us how this kind of interplay between levels of consciousness can be revealed through coincidences in “internal” thought and “external” action as we play with our sense of identity based on who “we” think we really are.

Another one of the more surprising aspects of quantum logic is that it shows us that we cannot ever fully know all “facts,” since some necessarily remain in a kind of blurry possibility field. When we combine that uncertainty with the way that quantum logic gates are two-ways through time, we start to see a quantum “mechanism” by which the future can and does influence the past. “Facts” are therefore not entirely fixed, and only awareness–consciousness–remains eternal.

How to Set Quantum Jumping Goals

CSL21may2015How can we set attainable goals when we’ve not yet experienced success?  

While we might hope that we can simply “power through” with whatever goal we have in mind, it is helpful to know what kind of results are realistic when facing new, uncertain situations since some of the things we’d most like to experience can feel the most out of reach.

Since any kind of quantum jump is theoretically possible, and quantum jumping is completely natural, how can we tell which quantum jumping goals are realistic? While most of us deem some kinds of instantaneous transformation to be more believable than others–tending to expect smaller quantum jumps, while considering some larger jumps to be impossible–the truth is that Nature operates with discontinuous ‘jumps’ occurring on a regular basis, as quantum biologists are beginning to realize.

Listen to Many Minds

Instead of being of just one mind, each and every one of us is a multitude. For example, each of our minds includes numerous different overlapping memory systems, though we are seldom aware of just how we reconstruct our memories of specific events each time we recall them. Our many minds establish a naturally redundant and highly resilient system that we can trust even when “life happens,” and things occasionally go “wrong.”

As David Eagleman writes in Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain,

“Almost the entirety of what happens in your mental life is not under your conscious control, and the truth is that it’s better this way. Consciousness can take all the credit it wants, but it is best left at the sidelines for most for the decision making that cranks along in your brain.”

Our conscious mind is like the tip of an iceberg, with the vast majority of what goes on happening below what we can readily observe. Without support from our subconscious believing something to be possible, we can waste energy fighting inner battles that result in outer signs of getting stuck, delayed, or diverted. When we observe thoughts and feelings conflicting with our goals, we can gain insights into how to be more open-minded to new possibilities, as we revise our goals as need be to best ensure our success.

With regard to setting quantum jumping goals, best success comes from focusing attention on asking for what is truly best for on all levels of our being–not just what we think is best from our heads. Most of us do not go through life feeling fully aligned with a sense of one harmoniously focused intention, and instead are accustomed to feeling inharmonious conflicting desires as “normal” in our daily lives–yet happiness and life satisfaction come from experiencing harmonious alignment with all levels of awareness.

Examples of goals that look great to our heads, but might not feel doable to our hearts and guts could include things like: losing thirty pounds, finding a wonderful romantic partner, or starting a new business. There’s a degree of ongoing commitment to many goals, which can mean our internal areas of conflicting beliefs can wreak havoc if left to their own devices. Rather than unexpectedly experiencing worries, doubts, misgivings and fears, we can learn to thrive by listening to many levels of awareness (such as head, heart, and gut), while nurturing belief in positive possibilities associated with realities we’d most like to experience. Each of these levels of awareness has important information that can be most helpful, when we go through the various carrier emotions to tune in the information being conveyed.

In terms of quantum jumping goals, emotions of love, compassion, and enthusiasm are capable of transforming other emotional energies levels where we can more easily imagine how good things can get, without fixating on what might go wrong. Listening to levels of consciousness with these high emotional energies can thus help ensure we’re more likely to experience success, without succumbing to doubts, worries, and fears.

Recall Winning Situations from the Past

Peak results and experiences occur when we’re “in the zone,” free from various forms of stress and tension in our bodies, minds, and spirit that we sometimes become accustomed to feeling. Top athletes know the importance of experiencing being “in the zone,” because optimal peak performance is associated with achieving and maintaining a state of harmoniously aligned awareness. Remembering times when we’ve been “in the zone,” can be helpful to remind us of how good it feels when our heads, hearts, and guts are aligned with one goal in mind, providing a sense of moving through life experiences with effortless ease.

When preparing for success, it helps to remember success of any related experiences we can feel emotionally vested in. The stories we tell ourselves and others greatly influence our beliefs, since our subconscious listens to everything we say and think, and takes a great deal of it very literally. Just as researchers last year were stunned to discover the extraordinary positive effects of placebo sleep, in which people felt and performed better when they believed they slept well, even when they hadn’t–our bodies are much more willing and able to cooperate with our minds than most of us have ever realized.

We can help ensure future success by finding aspects of wins from the past that are related in some way to the reality we are now envisioning, while simultaneously experiencing that flow state of “in the zone” feeling. Telling ourselves such positive statements as, “Everything is working out perfectly” can do wonders!

Set Goals that Match Envisioned Future Success

Kathmandu’s “Kung Fu Nuns” sprang into action after an earthquake in Nepal even while the first earthquake tremors rocked and broke the walls, thanks to years of body-mind-spirit conditioning, dodging pieces of falling wall and escaping, despite never having practiced such an exercise before. One of the reasons martial arts masters train as regularly and heavily as they do has to do with conditioning their minds to becoming aware that their physical bodies often do extraordinary activities, while enhancing the smooth coordination between mental thoughts and physical actions. The subconscious thus becomes conditioned to be more flexible and agreeable when urged forward by the conscious mind, able to do first envision and then do extraordinary things for the first time, regardless of any prior specific expertise in those areas.

We can develop mind-body-spirit agility by considering what reality we’d like to experience in the future, while recalling joy and gratitude of the past. Imagine our future selves feeling overwhelmed with thankful happiness as we look back at this very moment. Feeling such waves of appreciation in connection to seeing ourselves doing whatever needs to be done, weaving a thread from an optimal future possibility through the web of all possibilities to this moment, now.

Check Gut Feelings

After setting goals that match envisioned future success, we can take a check-point and listen to subconscious gut feelings. When we notice we are feeling relaxed, happy and expansive about our goals as we now envisioning them, terrific! Our goals are in place. If we sense any tension whatsoever, such as tightness or queasy feelings, it’s time to listen one more time, going through the above steps once again. Setting quantum jumping goals is a process, which always goes back to listening to our many levels of ourselves, getting ourselves into as much inner alignment as possible, and asking an integrating question such as, “How good can it get?”

Quantum Jumping and Manifesting with Law of Attraction

Cynthia Sue Larson

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. 

and also:

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.

Quantum Jumping Beginner’s Luck

Cynthia Sue Larson

The person who says something is impossible should not interrupt the person who is doing it.

Have you ever watched someone try something relatively challenging who inexplicably succeeded on the very first attempt? There can be an almost mystical quality to witnessing an extraordinary case of beginner’s luck, in which someone accomplishes something with apparent relative ease that most people would find difficult, if not impossible.

I watched my daughter throw a perfect twelve o’clock the very first time she participated in a Scottish Highlands game caber toss at age nine. She picked up something that looked for all the world like a telephone pole that was taller than she was, and that seemed to weigh as much if not more than she did, carried it forward balanced on one end, and then tossed it end-over-end so it traveled in a perfectly straight line to fall in what’s known in Scottish highland games as a perfect twelve o’clock position, directly ahead of her. I cheered wildly along with the crowd, in wide-eyed wonder and amazement that my young daughter had done an absolutely perfect throw the very first time she attempted such a difficult feat. The crowd cheered to see such perfect caber toss form, and as soon as I got a chance to talk with my daughter, I asked her what she did to get a perfect result on her first throw.

My daughter explained she’d been coached for a few minutes before she made this throw by one of the Scottish highland games athletes and judges, a dear family friend, who’d shown her the basic idea of the caber toss and demonstrated the optimal alignment, positioning, balance and exertion required… all with a small plastic fork. In my daughter’s mind, the final outcome was crystal clear, and she was more surprised that everyone was so ecstatic at her accomplishing the result she’d set out to achieve. Perhaps it helped that her participation had been a spur-of-the-moment thing, rather than something she’d known about or expected beforehand.

One of the likely reasons that so-called ‘beginner’s luck’ is so commonplace is that beginners typically have few preconceived notions about what they are attempting to do. When we don’t already “know” that what we are about to do is supposed to be difficult or even impossible, our minds are open to envisioning ourselves doing things like: finding a parking spot on a busy street where we need it, making a perfect serve in tennis, or getting a hole in one playing golf. Such first-time success is often referred to as ‘beginner’s luck,’ which recently got me to wondering if it’s possible to nurture on-going beginner’s luck… and if so, how one might best go about it.

If you heard there was a way you could develop boundlessness, limitlessness, and infinite wealth, would you be interested? These are qualities often associated with those who live their lives from a beginner’s mind point of view. There are many possibilities in beginner’s mind, in harsh contrast to experts mindset, where there are few. Beginner’s mind embodies some of the most sought-after emotional qualities, such as: enthusiasm, creativity, zeal, and optimism, as beginners focus single-mindedly on desired outcome without becoming physically, emotionally, or mentally frozen in place by dwelling on fears of anticipated setbacks.

Start at the Beginning

You might be wondering how does beginners mind apply to quantum jumping, and what can beginner’s mind offer those of us interested in consciously selecting realities between many possible parallel worlds? In short, beginner’s mind is the key to everything. Whereas our rational, analytical minds excel at noticing patterns, labeling things, and helping us sort and make sense of a chaotic world, our beginner’s mind exists eternally in a state of organic, holistic flow with all that is.

In the beginner’s state of mind, we know exactly who we are and what we can best be doing right now, and how. There is a Zen sensibility to beginner’s mind, and an guileless innocence with complete freedom from rules, regulations, limitations, grudges, fears, and doubts. Accessing such a primordial state of consciousness is possible through meditation and intention, and a willingness to let go of what we think we know.

The Zen concept of beginner’s mind includes the notion of original face–who we were before we were born. While such a notion might seem mind-boggling at first, that’s exactly the idea–just thinking about such a concept that so defies rational explanation immediately transports us to exactly the beginner’s state of mind we seek to embrace.

Aura Healing Meditations

Aura Healing Meditations

One of my favorite ways to attain a blissful state of beginner’s mind is to listen to Aura Healing Meditations, my meditation CD that transports me almost instantaneously to a relaxed, energized state. I’m not the only one who loves it; people have said this CD, “… automatically brings the listener to a higher octave of receptive openness,” “Float from one relaxed reality to another,” and “took me to a place of deep healing…  it is amazing this is something that can be bought.”

Make the  Leap

Once we’ve attained a blissful state of beginner’s mind, we’re in that wonderful state of consciousness that allows us to see many possibilities beckoning, and we’re able to choose, from a pure place of being, which reality–which parallel universe–to select. Rather than imposing any sense of what we ‘should’ or ‘could’ choose, beginner’s mind reality selection is a much more organic process, centered on a sense of our true self, in ways that may be rather different than we typically view ourselves. In other words, from a beginner’s mind point of view, only what we feel genuinely inspired and enthusiastic about will be perfectly focused upon as a desired outcome and result. From a beginner’s mind point of view, we are thus much more genuinely inspired.

What we find ourselves truly inspired about while in a beginner’s state of mind is likely to resonate fully through us in such a way that there are doubts, hesitations, or uncertainties. There can be a kind of boldness in this state of mind, which assists us in holding a steady vision of our desired outcome as a complete certainty, with nothing else distracting us from our goal.

You might notice yourself feeling a sense of being ‘in the flow,’ relaxed, and totally focused… so that when you make the leap and attain your goal, it’s almost anti-climatic–as you were absolutely certain you’d succeed.

Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World

Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World

Do you feel like you could use a little extra help envisioning wonderful success for yourself? You might find it helpful to read true life accounts of amazing shifts in reality in which people experienced quantum jumps in extraordinary ways, such as are described in my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World. Just knowing such things are possible can make a huge positive difference in one’s ability to let go of all kinds of thoughts about what is and isn’t possible!

I hope you’ll enjoy watching and sharing my YouTube video summary of Quantum Jumping Beginner’s Luck. Please feel free to leave comments either on this blog or on my YouTube video page!

As you explore beginner’s mind, I definitely suggest you continue asking the question, “How good can it get?!” I’d love to hear when you get some pretty wonderful answers!

Quantum Jumping

Cynthia Sue Larson

I just returned from a trip to Los Angeles where my replies to questions asked by director Stephen Grant of Canada’s History Channel’s “Weird or What? with William Shatner” were filmed. While I didn’t get to meet William Shatner (he was in New York, preparing to launch his one-man show on Broadway), I got to meet some of the wonderful people who work with him on a TV show dedicated to exploring some of the stranger things happening here on Earth.

The premise of the episode I participated in has to do with the concept of quantum jumping — the act of moving from one universe to another alternate reality. This is an area of great interest to me, as for the past thirteen years I’ve been observing the way consciousness changes the physical world, and how amazing it feels when one observes reality shifts.

One of the most fascinating things to me about quantum jumping is the premise that we can enjoy a better life by envisioning ourselves in a more favorable alternate reality. By focusing on how we ourselves can be better, and relaxing and intending to experience such a reality by fully embodying the people we would be in a reality in which we are healthier, happier, wealthier, and more successful in some way — we can literally jump to that other universe of possibility like walking through a door from one reality to the next.

The popular expression “quantum jump” is usually meant to describe a leap that is big — but to scientists, quantum jumps are tiny, discrete (indivisible), and abrupt. The idea of quantum particles is that they can exist in material form at one energy level or another, but not in between. When quantum particles have been observed to make a quantum jump from one state to another, scientists have watched them appear to blink on and off.

Quantum jumping is the process by which a person can envision some desired result or state of being that is clearly very different from the existing situation … and by clearly observing that possibility and supplying enough energy, make a leap into that alternate reality. The idea behind quantum jumping is that while we seldom consciously realize it, we are living in a multiverse of parallel universes. Usually, these alternate realities have no connection to one another. A quantum jump can be made through a kind of handshake through time and space. This connection forms a bridge that allows someone experiencing a quantum jump to literally end up in another reality. The connection is so total that a person can literally walk into another place and time. While to the universe, both of “you” still exist, usually your awareness of who you are will coalesce on one reality, leaving the other forgotten and left behind.

People often experience walking into parallel worlds that are nearly — but not quite entirely — identical to the one they came from. In such cases, you may find something has seemingly shifted in some startling way. A door or building may appear where one had never been before, or you might notice something as simple as your keys not being where you know you put them … and then find them in a very odd place with no apparent explanation.

How is Quantum Jumping Possible?

Consider the idea that many times — possibly even every time — you make a decision or choice, you are actually moving between alternate realities — between parallel worlds. In those alternate realities there are so many other possible “yous” which you can connect with so strongly that the conscious awareness and energy that is you literally moves into that other reality. When feeling so strongly connected to another self in a different reality, it is possible to gain direct access to the knowledge available only in that time and space, and to experience an entirely different self.

What makes quantum jumping possible is that, like a quantum particle, a person has the ability to exhibit quantum behavior. While it is extremely improbable that you will often be able to do some of the things quantum particles do — such as tunnel through solid barriers, or make quantum jumps to other alternate times and places — our current understanding of physics suggests such things are within the realm of possibility, and can be expected to occur.

Experimental observations at the quantum level change our assumptions about reality as we see that quantum particles are not always particles and sometimes exist as pure energy, that some kind of invisible connection exists between entangled quantum particles so they move together simultaneously with non-local spooky action at a distance, that simply by observing an experiment we are affecting it, and that unlike classical physics, quantum behavior can only ever be predicted by probabilities.

In order to explain some of this truly strange quantum behavior, Niels Bohr theorized that quantum particles exist as waves that might be anywhere until the wave function is collapsed. Hugh Everett III theorized that we exist in an multiverse consisting of many worlds of parallel realities. Physicist John Cramer theorizes it is possible for information to be exchanged between past and future through a kind of handshake between two points in spacetime. Scientists David Bohm and Karl Pribram proposed the universe is a giant hologram, containing matter and consciousness in a single field.

What all this means to someone experiencing a quantum jump is that they can enter another parallel reality by relaxing and imagining they are accessing some kind of bridge, window, or doorway to another world with another self who has another set of characteristics, qualities, or skills. With quantum jumping, one makes the leap from simply imagining oneself in an alternate reality to actually being that other self.

Examples of Quantum Jumping

The success of most all visualization methods and affirmations can be attributed to quantum jumping.

Some of the most effective weight loss programs work by helping people lose weight by imagining they now live in an alternate reality in which they are already thin.

Many top athletes use visualization of perfect performance together with envisioning they can become that top athlete to improve their athletic results in real life.

When someone says I’m faking it ’til I make it, they might well be envisioning themselves as being an entirely transformed person. A person who wants a promotion can thus emulate the dress, speech, behavior, self assurance and posture of someone at the next level up, to be considered deserving of a promotion.

How Does Quantum Jumping Work?

You’ve probably heard of self-fulfilling prophecies, and how athletes practice visualization of perfect performance in order to get the best results. Everything is made up of quantum material at its very core, and the idea behind quantum jumping is that it’s possible to jump to an alternate reality in much the same way that an electron dematerializes at one orbital level and reappears at another. The basic principle behind quantum jumping is based on combining some ideas about behavior of the very smallest quantum particles from physics. Quantum jumping can be envisioned as occurring in a multiverse of many alternate realities, in which each one of these realities exists another possible ‘you’ that you are connected to. Just as electrons can make energetic leaps from one energetic level to another, people can quantum jump through alternate realities to experience dramatic shifts in physical reality.

Anyone who can relax, clear their mind, and envision being different in some way — such as more successful, funny, healthy, wealthy, or wise — can quantum jump. When making these kinds of quantum jumps, one can feel immediate benefits from such positive thinking.

To initiate a quantum jump, keep an open mind that you can experience another reality. Sincerely desire and feel a connection to another reality, envisioning some way of making a connection with it through a bridge, a door, a window or a handshake. Your ability to form a strong intention, to concentrate, and to get and stay focused while being simultaneously relaxed and open-minded are essential.
