The Time I Cloud-Pushed a Hurricane
Last week Nick and I took our annual vacation down in Ocean City, NJ. I started checking the weather as soon as it became available on my app.
It called for sunny days and 80’s all week. Until forecast drastically changed to a hurricane.
I felt all the excitement drain out of me when I saw the little rain drops sprinkled through most of our days at the beach. I’m a beach girl. I lay on the beach and read for hours. I swim in the ocean. It nourishes my soul. I was bummed.
The the forecast started getting worse. I consulted Nick who wasn’t worried in the least. He’s good like that. Balanced as all hell. But still I was worried.
Then I remembered something I did with one of Nick’s nieces a few weeks back when we camped. We cloud pushed to ward off the rain. The best part about it was we did it on our own and then consulted and realized we both were doing the same thing.
What is cloud pushing you ask? Well it’s simple, I sit and visualize the rain clouds begin pushed away. Far far away.
I got this technique from a story my Shamanic Healer told me a few years back. She called it cloud busting. After her and her friend did it, it didn’t rain for weeks. She’s a powerful one.
So I tried it again, I sat each day and visualized the clouds being pushed away. Far far way. And you know what??
It didn’t rained a drop that weekend. And the rest of the week it only rained once, at night. That’s it.
And hey I know you may think I am wackado for thinking I could actually control the weather. But stranger things have happened.
And here’s the thing. I was so bummed when I thought a hurricane was going to ruin my vacation. I was giving my power away to this. I became helpless. A victim to shitty weather.
But then I stopped and realized it didn’t need to be that way. I could do something about it. So I did. And it worked.
But also I let go of attachment as much as I could. I told myself that even if it did rain we would still have an awesome time. I trusted that. Because when we are attached to stuff it’s like a big ole vice grip and no energy can get through.
And if you are wondering why I am speaking on such a shallow and privileged topic as having it rain on my vacation, let me point out that this is just a lighter spin on a topic that can get quite heavy.
We can give our power away all the time- to people, to experiences, to our work, to Facebook, to email, even to our dreams. It’s that moment when you feel hopeless.
Right in that moment there is a brilliant opportunity to flip the script. To step INTO your power and claim that shit. For me this usually results in me tapping into my powers of manifestation, or in this case cloud pushing.
We are magical beings. Like really really magical. We are powerful. SOOOOOO powerful. And it sometimes takes moments where we are feeling helpless to really remember the contrast.
So who knows if the big bad hurricane would have come and ruined my vacation if I hadn’t of cloud pushed. We will never know. But what I do know is that I prefer to take the perspective that keeps me in my magical power. And the awesome thing about that is that it’s always my choice.
