all the news about Hurricane Sandy and the “never before seen”
everything about it, I wanted to give my East Coast friends, family and
clients some quick reminders that you don’t need to accept destruction
into your home. Over the years, I’ve encouraged clients to surround
their homes with white healing, protective light before a hurricane or
tornado. These same people later told me that even when next door
neighbors or the entire area of their town lost power or trees, they
themselves did not. Others experienced minimal inconvenience, but no
lasting power outages or major damage. In some cases, their homes looked
like the only normal thing in a sea of disastrous debris.
When I send up and call in protective energy around my own home, I
try to include as much of the surrounding area as possible — without
diluting the effects. You’ll need to sense that fine line between
turning a specific, easily imaginable and felt intention into something
abstract … then back down the abstraction until you can tangibly feel
and imagine the safety, protection and healing again.
If you don’t regularly practice energy work and you’ve got a HAARP-aggravated hurricane coming
your way, I’d suggest you just focus on your own home this time. Don’t
feel bad about protecting your immediate surroundings instead of
everyone and everything you can think to include. It’s better to
experience strong success in this method than only minor, random help to
you and those around you.
If your home turns out to stand firm, then you can always extend your
hospitality and good fortune to neighbors after the fact. You can also
share these techniques with others you know, so that more and more
people in your area hold the light of protection around their homes.
Everything — including weather patterns — derives from energy and
vibration. The higher, stronger, more joyful and powerfully protected
and prepared you feel, the less likely you will experience negative
outcomes. This remains true for hurricanes as well as job interviews.
I include below some easy tips and reminders for protecting your home:
1) Ask for a blessing on your family and home. This
particular kind of prayer helps move you from default fear mode into a
miracle-expectant mode. Just because The Weather Channel tells you
something dreadful will occur, doesn’t mean you can’t look back on this
experience as an amazing moment of Grace and deliverance.
God/Spirit/Source/Divine Love/Angels … reveal themselves when our senses
reach high alert. If you ask for a blessing, know that one or more
blessings have already begun to make their way to you. Receive them.
When the winds and rains kick up, recognize how much positive energy
wants to shower you with good things right now.
2) Ask the Elementals for help. I wrote this past summer about how the Elementals responded with a much needed rain shower during our Wisconsin drought.
If you follow that link, you can read a not-unique story. After sharing
my experience with others, they let me know that they, too, had found
rain when and only when they asked the Elementals to intercede on their
Who are the Elementals? You can think of them as faeries, elves,
Nature Spirits, devas … those who live ever so slightly beyond the veil
but who share Gaia with us. Different beings connect more closely with
different elements — Earth, Air, Fire,and Water. They can increase or
decrease the energies associated with their preferred element. In the
case of a hurricane, I’d get quiet and sincerely ask (even “just in your
imagination” is fine!) the Water and Air Elementals to balance the
hurricane energies. Ask the Earth Elementals to fortify the land. You
can ask the Fire Elementals to mitigate the lightning and power outages.
A fifth element, Spirit, runs throughout all creation, unifying it in
Divine harmony. Connecting with Spirit and focusing on harmony will also
ease any chaotic energies around you.
As I explained in the article from this summer, the Elementals desire
a closer working connection with humans interested in preserving and
protecting our shared Earthly home. “Natural” disasters offer perfect
opportunities to reconnect and realize that the whole is greater than
the sum of its parts. No one but the psychopaths wants any kind of
nuclear issues resulting from a hurricane or winter storm. The
Elementals deeply love our planet, and they will absolutely work with
sincere people looking to protect and love the land as well.
3) Ask for Angelic Protection. Angels
will not interfere without your request, but they stand by ready to act
whenever you ask. Archangel Michael, in particular, wields a fiery
sword that can create an energy vortex of protection around you and your
home. You can also imagine green, gold, pink, and/or white light
covering your home and permeating every atom of your surroundings.
Invite the angels into this light and know that they will hold and
protect that space for you. This same technique works for healing in the
event an illness or injury occurs, but why not preemptively ask for the
love and light around you? “Love and Light” sound like New Age buzz
words, but they’re extremely powerful forces in the Universe capable of
transforming any and all energies coming your way. If you catch yourself
becoming flippant with these concepts, take a moment to breathe in the
fullness of what Love and Light encompass.
4) Practice personal and global Ho’oponopono. I’ve written on this topic before,
too, but wanted to mention it again in connection to storms. Storms
clear out old, stagnant energy. Nothing quite like 50+ mph winds and
sheets of rain to wash away that which no longer serves! Instead of
resisting change, though, you can invite forgiveness into your life in
far easier and gentler ways. I include an excerpt from my earlier
article, beginning with the words of the Ho’oponopono prayer:
Please forgive me.
A few rounds of that launch me deeper into my heart than I have ever
comfortably remained — even though I do spend a lot of time in my heart.
The words become a mantra and carry their own vibration, which seems to
heal the angry spots inside. They also help to recognize even more of
those Shadow Sides in which we have tangoed with the “Other” and hurt
them and ourselves. In recognizing our own role in the
victim/abuser/savior dance, we reclaim both our energy and our power.
Those sticky relationships no longer tear at our inner peace like
This practice has yielded such deep results in all my personal
relationships that I started practicing it with leaders of our world. I
also started practicing Ho’oponopono as an American, sincerely asking
for global forgiveness of our massive karmic debt to humanity. Turning
the other cheek to our leaders’ decisions to bomb, raid, torture and
decimate doesn’t absolve us of all responsibility. At least, not in my
world. I feel deep love for humanity and a true hope that we can move
beyond all wars to live in peace and harmony on this planet. Speaking of
this planet, I also started practicing Ho’oponopono as a citizen of
Earth, sending heartfelt words to Gaia for all the ways we have refused
to honor and protect her:
Please forgive me.
5) Get some basic survival, food and water supplies before the storm hits. As
the saying goes, “God helps those who help themselves.” If you fear you
don’t have enough water, food, band-aids or blankets on hand should
supply lines or power get disrupted, those fears will amplify the
swirling energies around you. Know you have protection on the spiritual
level, but also bolster your physical, mental and emotional comfort by
doing what you can to weather the storm. Reasonable preparation doesn’t
mean giving into fear if such preparation then allows you to rest easier
knowing you’ve done all you could on your own. Most people find it
easier to accept Divine help when they can reflect upon tangible steps
they’ve made as well. “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and
certain of what we do not see.” Sometimes seeing a few things sure
6) Remember any esoteric, natural or spiritual healing techniques you’ve learned. Studied
Reiki years ago? No time like the present to dust off those skills!
Learned about Quantum Healing or the Law of Attraction? Use this
hurricane encounter as a quick refresher course. If you learned First
Aid way back in the day, why not review some of those techniques? Do you
have tons of Young Living essential oils lying around in a cupboard?
Set aside some of the literature for entertaining yourself during the
worst of the storm. You might especially want to have on hand those oils
that calm fear or uplift the spirit. Whatever you’ve learned over the
years, know that nothing is ever wasted. You have far more skills and
resources at your disposal than you tend to use in everyday life. Why
not reclaim these wonderful pieces of yourself?
7) Surround yourself with Sacred Symbols. For some people, the cross represents the most protective energy available. For others, the Thorn or Thurisaz Rune surrounds
them with an energy shield associated with Thor, the Norse god of
thunder and lightning. Celtic influenced people might prefer a five- or
seven-pointed star, or the Triple Goddess Spiral.
The symbol itself matters less than your association with the image.
Symbols work directly on your subconscious mind, so having potent
reminders nearby can help you feel and become stronger and more
confident, regardless of what challenges you face. Advertisers,
political campaigns and religions program your subconscious mind through
symbols. By consciously selecting symbols that resonate with strength,
excellence and power, you begin to embody those qualities and your
reality reflects that shift.
8) Incorporate fun into your preparations. If
you’ve got a family with young children or even just very scared
adults, you can redirect any fear into positive energy by injecting a
bit of fun into your lives. In addition to candles and blankets, take
out some board games and novels. Hunker down and enjoy yourselves as
much as you can. Finding ways to thrive in any and all circumstances
actually alters those circumstances. Instead of worrying so much about
power outages, find ways to rekindle your own inner power to create
worlds. In a Universe of infinite possible realities, remember to
include some fun!
