“Everything we call real is made of things that cannot be regarded as real. If quantum mechanics hasn’t profoundly shocked you, you haven’t understood it yet.” ~ Nobel Prize winning physicist Niels Bohr

As a kid, I loved the quantum travel tesseract technique from Madeleine L’Engle’s “A Wrinkle in Time.” It would have been handy to collapse space and time during tired walks home from school or visits to the dentist. Eventually, who knows where, I found “how to tesseract” instructions — BG (Before Google). They were disappointingly simple, saying in essence; “If you’re traveling to a destination, visualize yourself already there.” That was it.

One cold November night my junior high friends and I were wishing we had a ride as we walked the two miles home from the movies. I explained the theory, and motivated by the frigid temps, we did it — we visualized arriving at our warm, cozy destination. Didn’t last long; we went back to whatever we had been talking about. 

Suddenly we were home. Someone said “Wow. That worked.” Just that simple — our atoms did not disperse and re-organize; there were no special effects. The cold walk was simply over before we knew it. As a result, my slightly spooky reputation was enhanced, which was great, as it deterred mean girls. Now I understand that my friends and I made a “quantum jump.”

I’ve used the method on long plane rides, road trips, during boring lectures, or anytime I preferred to be somewhere other than where I was. More often than not, the trip, class, dentist appointment, or whatever, seems over before I know it.

The two-glass method is as simple as imagining where you would rather be; in fact, that’s exactly what it is. Instructions below, followed by more on quantum science.

A 12 Step Two Glass Quantum Jump Method

You’ll need:

  • Two cups or glasses. Doesn’t matter what kind. They don’t need to match, they just need to hold an ounce or two of water.
  • Two small pieces of paper, like post-it notes.
  • Tape, if you don’t have sticky notes.
  • Water.
  • A pen.
  • Consider something you would like to change.
  • Distill it to one or two words and write it on a post-it.
  • Stick or tape the paper to one of the glasses.
  • Consider what you would rather have — but don’t use a negation of your undesired word and visa-versa, as in, “anxious,” then “non-anxious.” You get the drift — ex. “anxious,” then “relaxed,” “confident,” or “composed.” An online synonym/antonym tool is handy.
  • Tape or stick the desired word on the second glass.
  • Pour an ounce or two of water in the glass labeled with the word describing what you would like to change.
  • Take a moment to ponder how the word makes you feel about your current circumstances. Discouraged? Frustrated? Experience it.
  • Pour the water in the empty glass labeled with your preferred outcome.
  • Take a moment to consider how you would feel if that second word accurately reflected your state. How would it feel? Good?
  • Drink the water, feeling grateful for the new outcome.
  • Throw the labels in the trash and wash or discard the glasses.
  • Forget about it. Really. Fuggedaboutit.

That’s right. Forget it. Don’t take its temperature every half hour, don’t ruminate on it, and if you do, go do something else. This principal, from esoteric traditions, lies at the heart of all practical magic. Worrying about your goal does more to hinder than help — so don’t.

What we’re calling quantum jumping, a.k.a. multiverse theory, quantum leaps, or reality shift, has long been viewed as exactly that; magic or sorcery. Some follow magic recipes step by step; others understand the formula which is:

Intention + Dedicated Action = Magic.

Set an intention, perform an action dedicated to that intention, and observe the results with detachment, and lo, find yourself at play in the quantum field.

Magic and Quantum Mechanics

Imagine being a yak herder on the Tibetan Plateau 50 years ago. Somebody shows up with portable solar panels and introduces you to artificial light. Or cures your sick yak’s infection with antibiotics. Or plays music on their iphone. Magic, right?

No — technology. So it may be with quantum mechanics. We’re only beginning to understand the physics of intention and thought, searching for practical applications, i.e. The Secret.

Paradoxically, what if those Tibetans, awed by our technology, had mastered quantum reality centuries ago? Developed nagpas and lamas have brought drought-ending rains, and have been known to appear in two places at once. They can sit for hours in the snow wrapped in cotton sheets and end up in a puddle of water, immune to freezing temperatures. They have contests to see who can melt the most snow. Sometimes they accidentally stick a hand through a wall or table, or leave footprints in rock. A lifetime’s education in Tantric traditions can lead to mastery of what appears to be, from our perceptual window, magic. While discipline and instruction are required, the methods can be taught and learned — they’re not “theories.”

Alexandra David-Neel visited Tibet in 1929, returning with stories of Buddhist “magicians and sorcerers” and their feats. Among them were the “lung gompas,” monks that trained with meditation, breathing techniques and physical exercise to enter a state of being “light as a feather.” Lung gompa messengers traveled as much as 200 miles a day, running for 48 hours without rest. Is this a highly developed version of a rudimentary tesseract my friends and I experienced that cold November night? Did the lung gompas master a type of psycho-technology for quantum reality shift? Tibetan-style reality engineering?

Dipping a Toe into Quantum Fields

Reddit forum members share experiences of the two glass, or two cup method with amazement. “It’s disconcerting when things start coming true. Who came up with this exercise anyway? Was it in a book somewhere?” said one member.

Some use pictures rather than words; many experiment with prosperity, weight loss, or relationships. Those who succeed admonish others to relax and forget about it after completing the steps. The more experienced warn newbies to carefully consider the change they ask for; one member reported using a quantum jump method for a serious health issue. She said that the condition was gone, but friends and family were somehow “different,” and that while she was grateful to be well, she missed their former selves.

Others find themselves stunned when a shift occurs. “A few days after jumping, I noticed a few odd events. For example, in my neighborhood there are a lot of black cats. But after, I began seeing  white cats. I intuitively felt that it was the universe winking at me. A few projects that I had been working on began to take off. So much so, I literally had a nervous breakdown from the good news. I was no longer a financial wreck.”

And of course some claim complete failure, believing that it was something about themselves that messed it up — well, that’s one way to be “special.”

The insight gained by many is that shifts don’t happen “out there.” Outer reality adjusts to inner intention — quantum fields can respond to deliberate choices and actions. We also have the power to disempower ourselves with our discursive states of mind, expectations, perceived failures, and desperation for escape from current reality.

Be skeptical, willing, playful, whatever. But consider the possibility that your intentions and actions might make magic. And most of all, have fun.

Robert Moss Describes Parallel Realities He's Accessed in Dreams

There is far more to existence than we realize. We spend our day-to-day lives focused on the most immediate concerns of family, work, chores, and entertainment. However, for those adventurous enough to consider other realities, the potential for experiencing parallel realities is fascinating and rewarding.

In a recent interview with Regina Meredith and bestselling author Robert Moss, gives an eye-opening description of life beyond the five senses that turns conventional thought about the boundaries of existence upside-down.

“I’ve long been fascinated by dream experiences of parallel lives,” Robert Moss wrote. “These can take many forms. We find ourselves in the situation of a person living in a different time. We seem to be enjoying — or not enjoying — a continuous life in another reality. We slip into the perspective and apparently the bodies of other people (including even members of other species) who may be living in our present world, but are not ourselves.”

In speaking of his book Mysterious Realities, Robert Moss noted that his personal experiences give evidence for multiple dimensions, not only of time and space but also of the self. In other words, it may very well be that we exist not only here in this world in which we read these very words, but also in dimensions beyond our conscious awareness. Moss characterizes experiences of other dimensions as fun, entertaining, and illuminating. 

Dreaming is one way to explore, firsthand, one of the many possible alternate worlds, says Moss. If you monitor your dreams and write them down, he says, over time you will remember instances of when you’re not in your present life. Sometimes we understand there are parallel gifts of creativity, for example, or that we have a chance to change our plans or decisions to make things come out differently. 

The imaginal realm implies reams of reality created by imagination over the millennia that we may all share in our travels. Everything that exists does so due to human imagination, including environments that rise up when we die.
