Manifesting Thunder And Lightening
This story has been so unbelievable to me that I have resisted telling anyone out of fear of looking like a weirdo. The truth is, I have been a lifetime skeptic and negative person, but no more. I do believe this world is here for each one of us and we have the power to manifest things through thought.
My story begins in a meditation retreat. For the first time ever, I was assigned as head chanter. With this position comes a lot of attention and while I liked being head chanter, I didn’t like being so much the center of things. I later told my wife I enjoyed chanting itself, but I feel like a lightening rod. For some reason, I continued saying that over and over in my head. I guess I thought it was a very appropriate metaphor for my situation.
The next morning, at the EXACT time that I started the chant, a huge lightening bolt flashed and struck down less than a quarter mile away. It immediately started pouring and lightening continued to strike two more times. After the service it stopped. You have to understand that lightening NEVER occurs in LA, especially not of this caliber. And at the same exact time I opened my mouth after repeating that I felt like a lightening rod all night?
Looking back at this, I almost can’t believe it. I have been such a skeptic all my life that sharing something like this sounds so crazy to me. The great thing is that right before the retreat I absolutely fell head over heels with The Secret. This experience makes me believe that we have complete control of our life, to a degree we cannot even fathom. The other non skeptic side of me says, why is it so unbelievable? If it’s all just mind anyway, what makes this reality any different from a dream? Overall, I do now believe that intense meditation only magnifies this power of manifestation.
