Ok, Everyone is talking and chattering about Hurricane Sandy. I know it appears that she will be one nasty tart, but I feel confident that we will get through this.
Sunday I spent time with a wonderful group of people from the New Jersey Spirituality group. We sent our energy to Hurricane Sandy, cooling her and the waters that surround her in order to “nudge” her out to sea. It was a unique and fulfilling experience as are so many of my experiences with that group. If you are from the southern New Jersey area, click on the link to the website and learn more about the group. Do I believe that this could help to influence a storm of this size? Yes I do.
I remember the scariest storm I’ve ever experienced. I had to look it up to be sure what year it was. It was 1954 and I was 4 years old. I don’t really think I’m giving my age away here. It was Hurricane Hazel.
Being such a small child at the time, I’m sure that much of my memory is fuzzy. I remember having no electricity and no heat. Now that I read the details, it happened around my birthday, so that couldn’t have been any fun!
My most vivid memory was this. Since we didn’t have heat (I’m not sure why we didn’t have it) we spent most of our time in the kitchen. We but a curtain across the door, turned on the oven and left the door open, certainly not the safest thing to do, but that’s what we did! It warmed us and, again in my 4-year-old memory, it was like a camp out. In reading the details of what I found on-line, Hazel was a nasty tart, too. I suppose I’m glad I was too young to really understand what was going on.
I know what’s going on this time. As I sit here, it’s raining like crazy. I’m hoping for a bit of a break. If not, as soon as it gets light I go out in the rain to gather up the trash cans so they don’t crash into anything. Should have done it last night but I was misinformed that the rain wouldn’t start until later in the morning. Ok, so I get wet. I’ve been wet before and I’ll dry out!
If you have time today, send some of your energy to Sandy. Help to nudge her in an easterly direction. Tell her to go away. It may sound a little far-fetched, but the storm is energy, the whole earth is energy. We are energy, too. Use it today.
Sunday morning I took some sunrise photos. Kind of gives proof to the old saying, “Red sky at morning, Sailor take warning.”
Beautiful and Scary at the same time!
To all my family, friends and readers in the Eastern United States. Stay safe!
