Shifting is a literal portal to new worlds

What is shifting?

Shifting can be many things to many people, but most people who shift use it as a coping mechanism to escape. Literally. It’s supposedly moving your subconscious from this world to another. Through shifting, people can escape to so many places, both real and fictional, such as movies, books, or anywhere really. 

Shifting is based on the multiverse theory. The multiverse theory, according to, “suggests that our universe, with all its hundreds of billions of galaxies and almost countless stars, spanning tens of billions of light-years, may not be the only one. Instead, there may be an entirely different universe, distantly separated from ours—and another, and another. Indeed, there may be an infinity of universes, all with their own laws of physics, their own collections of stars and galaxies (if stars and galaxies can exist in those universes), and maybe even their own intelligent civilizations.”

Before shifting, people recommend using a script. Scripts can be typed or written since they are what people use to add detail to their desired reality. Physical descriptions, relationships with people around them, and their personal background can all be included in a script. The most important part of a script is a safe word: something someone who is shifting says that brings them back to their current reality.

TikToker Cass, @cassref1—who regularly shifts—makes TikToks that are small skits of what goes on in her desired reality life. Her 350k followers enjoy her videos and the drama that comes with them. In her desired reality life, she is a student at Hogwarts, and she is constantly involved in some sort of adventure.

There are multiple shifting methods, and what works for one person might not work for another. One example would be the pillow method, which seems the most simple. The shifter simply puts their script—printed out if they originally typed it—under their pillow. Then they should get into a comfortable sleeping position, close their eyes, and start their affirmations.

Affirmations are repeated statements such as, “I am in my desired reality. I am in my dorm room. I have successfully and safely shifted.” They should repeat affirmations in their head until they are tired. Then they visualize their desired reality or moments from their desired reality until they fall asleep. After falling asleep, the shifter should wake up in their desired reality.

Information on shifting can be found anywhere really, but unfortunately, a lot of information may be falsely advertised. A shifter that does their own research is more likely to succeed since they know the science behind it. There have even been documents from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) that suggest something similar to shifting is indeed real.

YouTuber nickisnotgreen posted a video on January 18, 2021 summarizing the twenty-nine page document. He includes information on the Gateway Process, Hemi-Sync technique, subliminals, Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, hypnosis, and advanced techniques, and he even talks about the parallel universe theory/the multiverse theory. 

Once you have the main basis of what the Gateway Process is out of the way, and it’s not even close to what reality shifting is on TikTok. There really isn’t much else in the paper that you can touch on that will change what has already been said.”

He is saying that shifting is real, in a way, but teenagers and kids should not think about shifting just to escape this reality if they aren’t doing well mentally. He is in no way hating on anyone who wants to shift, but he is simply giving them knowledge on shifting based on what he learned and giving his opinion. He is also clearly saying that TikTok shifting and the Gateway Process are two different things.

He shows that “once you have the main basis of what the Gateway Process is out of the way—and it’s not even close to what reality shifting is on TikTok—there really isn’t much else in the paper that you can touch on that will change what has already been said.” So yes, shifting is real but not in the same way TikTok thinks. Shifting can mean something different to one person versus another, but it’s up to the individual to decide if they want to shift, or even if they believe in shifting.
