This past Saturday, Denver experienced a massive windstorm. Large trees uprooted, billboards and power poles blown over, and broken branches everywhere. Thankfully, we did not have any damage and the neighborhood had minor. Tree companies are everywhere, turning once beautiful trees into firewood.
Mother Gaia is a bit upset with the human population right now. Storms are Her way of letting everyone know that she has had enough and damages are a way of getting our attention, as well as cleaning house. Even if we don’t like it. Kind of like a human mother delivering a swat when her children morph into squabbling hellions. The hellions don’t much like it either, but they settle down rather quickly to avoid another swat.
The weather report indicated that last night was going to be stormy. High winds – again – along with thunder, lightning and possibly hail. Storms make me very anxious. I suppose it comes from growing up in the tornado belt of Iowa. I remember many a dark night huddled in the basement with my family, while twisters tore through the area. I’ve seen significant devastation and family homes leveled. I was never in the midst of the destruction, and I’m quite grateful for that. Last night escalated those worries into fear.
So, I did what I tell people to do when they are in fear mode: Pray. I asked Archangels Michael, Ariel and Jophiel to protect me, my property and my neighborhood and calm my thoughts. I happened to be reading Alberto Villoldo’s book “Mending The Past And Healing The Future With Soul Retrieval”, about a shaman’s healing tools. It also just so happened that I had reached the section about “tracking a new timeline”. For example: you have just received a life-threatening diagnosis. The shaman’s view of your timeline, or soul path, shows a 99% probability of this transpiring, but outside of that finality a 1% possibility of something different exists. The shaman helps the patient “track” into this possibility for a different outcome. Sort of a variation of the timeline. There was a case study of this in the reading, where the patient’s illness subsided and he made changes to his life that basically erased the probability. Pretty amazing.
So, I thought, why couldn’t I envision a possibility of a different outcome last night? I created a picture in my head of a much lessened storm, good sleep and a calm morning. And knowing that Mother Gaia controls the weather, I prayed to Her and told Her that storms scare me. I accepted that she needed to “clean house” and release some steam, and that I accepted whatever She brought about. I welcomed rain as it brought much-needed nourishment to plants and trees. Then I went to sleep.
I woke up around midnight and it was raining. No noticeable wind, nor thunder and lightning. I woke up a couple other times in the night to a steady rain. This morning it was still raining, and then subsided. It is still cloudy, but the sun is poking through and the energy feels calmer.
Do I think I changed the weather? Well, I know from living in Colorado the weather changes quickly and often. It could be just one of those things. If you have ever watched the tracking of a hurricane, then you know those crazy things can do anything very quickly. I’m sure the meteorologists have explanations for this. But I don’t discount the power of prayer. A few years ago, a hurricane was heading dead-on to Hawaii. A mass meditation and prayers were called for. Within a day, the hurricane avoided the islands.
I don’t think we really know how much power we have within us. Prayers changing medical outcomes are well-documented. I believe we are awakening to our energetic power and need to learn how to use it. However, we must be conscious of how we direct it. Focus on what you want, and not on what you don’t want. It is the Law of Attraction in action.
All I know is that my fears were calmed and I slept like a baby in the arms of Mother Gaia.
