When it comes to weather, I have had many personal events of changing it in my own circumstances … and, in every case, to act and how ”came” to me (soul memory as a shaman in past lives). These visualization techniques today are a proactive approach. Envisioning support for such a major event as Hurricane Sandy is simply addressing the situation that is what it is. Weather events can be countered (which I have learned from experience when to take action, and what/how always just came when I needed it). For any of you on the east coast right now, blessings go out to you, for your own strength and wisdom, from many many people who are also helping to abate the strength of this storm. Any energetic influence at all may reduce the impact. May it be so.
The following posts are on how to help yourself avert weather disasters (hurricanes, flashfloods, tornados, wild fires). Use your common sense of course. Be proactive. But also apply your natural instincts for self-protection. Be calm, self-assured, and indomitable.
Below is a very brief visualization for moving Hurricane Sandy (October 29, 2012) back out into the ocean, or seeing it dissipating. Let’s start with the short story that happened a year ago.
Hurricane Irene August 2011 was reported to advance up the entire eastern seaboard of the United States, including New York City. It was a dire warning from the tip of Florida all the way up into Nova Scotia, Canada.
While watching the news on TV, and seeing the entire coastline covered in red, the projected potential disaster zone, it occurred to me, for the first time ever, to focus energy to help ward off the hurricane or at least minimize its effects. I had not thought of such an action before, for any other disaster, and the feeling did not repeat itself for any subsequent natural disasters. This was the first time I had felt moved to do something beyond my own personal life.
Maybe there was something about this one. I don’t know. I only know that, in that moment, the following image came to me, so I did it. It was effortless and quite simple. So then I sent these brief instructions in an email to a small handful of people who might want to participate (the more, the better). I also posted it on my blog.
Let’s mentally move the Hurricane:
- Visualize the U.S. and Canadian east coasts.
- Mentally move the entire energy field of the hurricane out into the ocean.
- Keep moving it until it dissipates.
- Repeat, repeat, repeat.
- Hold that image—continuously (in the back of the mind, every time you think of it)—until the event passes.
Who knows if this helped? Maybe it did. I do feel that many people made such “prayers.” What I do know is that the consequences of the hurricane were much less severe than anticipated by all weather forecasts.
Irene was potentially a category 3 hurricane, expected to devastate the entire eastern seaboard. As the weather ensued, the direction of the storm was as expected, however the intensity was reported to be less.
Anderson Cooper on CNN reported, “A very different scene than we had anticipated…. A lot of people in New York city are breathing a sigh of relief…. Nowhere nearly as bad as it could have been [from Battery Park, NY]…. Cannot explain why the winds did not get down to the surface…. [If so] would have been seen even worse problems [flooding from storm surge] than seeing now…. Storm damage not as bad as feared [Rhode Island].”
The storm had weakened to a category 1 and lower winds; it was still dangerous, but mitigated. At Long Island, NY, it was downgraded to a tropical storm and winds reduced to 65-75 and there was much less damage than expected.
The storm had initially changed at North Carolina, and Anderson Cooper reported, “the best possible outcome” as the storm lost its “mojo.”
Let’s go for a repeat with Hurricane Sandy.
Calming the Storm
In your meditation state, focus the intention: “Whatever can be done, do it now.”
Focusing on the eye of the storm, project the image settling: “Calming… calming… calming…”
Repeat, repeat, repeat…
Repeat again whenever it occurs to you throughout the day(s).
Another piece of advice from the I AM consciousness in a blog post 8-25-11 titled “Focus Your Zone of Safety” –
“Draw on your Clear Vibrant Knowing. You can avert harm. You can avoid it. You can know when to go. You can know how to push. You can know how to be in your own zone of safety. It is always around you. Enhance it. See it. Invoke it.”
Insight today from the Infinite Mind: Hurricane. “It is from global warming. CO2 emissions worldwide are a major contributor…. More people are going to be moving west.”
Amidst Forest Fires, One Colorado Woman Brings Rain
Averting Forest Fires Update June 29, 2012 (during a rash of Colorado wildfires and the two worst in Colorado’s history)
Miss B:“I am so thankful to be able to live in Colorado, in the foothills, with great views and wonderful nature. But nature here also brings danger, as we have seen during the 2012 summer lightning storms that have sparked devastating wildfires up and down the front range: Colorado Springs, Boulder, Fort Collins.
“With fires burning and destroying land and homes, when an early evening storm approached my area in those same foothills, I knew what to do. I remembered how last year  I had seemingly stopped an approaching wildfire in early spring [got snow] by using what I knew about energy forces [learned from Charol's workbook Intuition for Every Day]—and this time, also, I immediately got to work using that same technique.
“As the lightning strikes grew stronger and closer, I went to my deck overlooking the storm and waved my arms up to the heavens and around to the side, over and over; while imagining my own energy growing outward and upward, like a shield, to protect my house.
“I continued this, feeling my energy leave my body and go upward from my head. I verbally commanded it to protect and envelop my area, even my entire foothills neighborhood.
“I continued this again and again—feeling very strong and powerful—for about ten or fifteen minutes. And then, to my surprise, I felt raindrops! At first, just a few. Then the heavens opened up with a soaking rainstorm.
“Last year, it was snow. Now it was a protective rain—which was unpredicted and a huge surprise to weather forecasters. Not to me, though.
“Imagine if we all concentrated and projected our energy to protect our land, our property, our state, our country during impending danger. What power we all have!” – Barb

Forest Fire Averted! Coincidence or a Miracle?
The following true story happened in March 2011, with a friend of mine in Golden, Colorado. Here are our email letters. She is Miss B.
Miss B: “We have a forest fire in Golden, about 10 miles from me.”
Me: “I noticed that late last night on TV… I thought of you… Oh, my. KEEP SAFE. Sending a white light shield around you. RIGHT NOW. You do it too Visualize. Boldly send out protection. Ask Universe and angels to protect you, your home, your pets and all around you. VISUALIZE…BOLDLY ”
Miss B: “If those winds pick up, we could be looking at a very significant fire in the foothills. I already have my bags packed and will head to my daughter’s if we get the message to evacuate. Right now, only one subdivision down the hill is in the path, but who knows with the winds. It is so dry out there!”
Me: “Trust Your Gut Instincts… If you need help… the tornado and flood stories in my workbook emailed to me. GO WITH YOUR GUT.”
Miss B: “Thanks, I remember those stories and, yes, I have previously taken your advice (especially with thunderstorms!), will do so again. Thanks.”
Me: “It works especially well against real physical threats. I just finished a strong meditation. I’ll go back IN and send help. Let me know what happens. The KEY: BE A WARRIOR. This is the time to pull out all the stops! ”
Miss B: “Warrior B! This fire isn’t going to get me!”
Me [smiling]: “Yes, I ‘saw’ that. While creating the vacuum and safety around you, suddenly I ‘saw’ you being the warrior and I literally guffawed out loud. It was a very real gut feeling, wonderful! My Yorkie even jumped up in my lap! … Warrior is absolutely the attitude that gets it done …Breathe…”
Miss Warrior B: “Breathing….”
Me: email title “COOL … Create (visualize and hold the image) a vacuum of safety and calm around you, your being, your body, around each of your dogs, around your car, around and above and over your entire house and property, extend it beyond your property on all sides, and beyond at least the next neighbor over. Everything included in your imaging is in the zone of protection. I ‘see’ it. I am holding it for you, too. You are the strongest voice for your own being and all around you. You are safe. Believe it. Know it. Then do what must be done. [e.g. be practical]”
Me: email title “SAFE” … “This 8:58 a.m., this inner message spontaneously came to me about you: ‘B is safe.’ All day yesterday, through the night (while asleep), still there this morning, and reinforced in a just-now meditation: Holding the vision (and feeling/seeing the power cord/light up through the crown of the head into the heavens, which expands the force field of protection out around it like a vortex, a zone of safety). You, your home and all within it, your entire property (including power lines, etc.), and expanding around to include all neighbors, and expanding surrounding as far as you can see. I ‘see’ the fire contained, on the other side of the hill (and that all that you can see remains green and alive). I ‘see’ containment poured all around it (e.g., circle) AND I spontaneously ‘saw’ the ground within that circle charred to the ground and out cold (and no houses within it). Hold the visions (hold the energy up through the crown). Let me know how you are.”
Miss Warrior B: “I am indeed safe. I woke up to snow on the ground! It was not forecast at all [e.g., exceptional dry this year]. It is like a blanket of protection for my home and the surrounding mountain where I live… What a wonderful gift!”
Me: “Oh, my God, that is so COOL. Ha. It really is COOL!!! WOW. I’m so happy for you! And still hold the vision (and see/feel it up through your crown/top of head like a beacon of light into the heavens, the source of the centrifugal force sending out around you…. until it’s really the cold damp spot (charred) on the other side of the hill…. and no houses in it…. just the earth…. (I will, too).”
The Indian Gulch Fire took from Monday through Saturday March 26, 1011 to put out. Winds were hurricane force for three to four days, gusting up to 75 mph, and dry conditions are “drought.” The fire never crossed over the hill.
Coincidence? Or is focused intent powerful enough to move the forces of nature?
I believe that human beings have this innate ability. We simply forgot how… and we can relearn how to tap it… how to draw on it, when we are in danger. All I know is I have many personal stories of how it apparently did keep me out of harm’s way. That’s a good enough reason to keep using it, I believe.

Can You Move a Tornado with Your Mind?
This happened to me… May this help you…
A grave sense of danger gripped me and pervaded every fiber of my being. I froze and began to sweat and gasp for breath. A sudden news flash on my Walkman radio was announcing a tornado whipping through my neighborhood right then in Northglenn, forty-five minutes away from my downtown Denver high-rise office where I was working as a temp secretary.
Yet what I felt was not ordinary fear. I had never felt a sensation like this before. Something deep inside me told me this was critical and that something catastrophic was about to happen. I gazed out the seventeenth-floor office window to the far horizon north.
The suburb where I lived with Ray was twenty miles away and I had taken the express RTD bus to work. My border collie, Che, was in the fenced backyard and my timid miniature schnauzer, Cabra, was loose in the house (all three of us had moved in with Ray, from Colorado Springs). I couldn’t get home in time to move the dogs to safety into the basement. Ray was out in the field with his Public Service utilities job and I couldn’t reach him.
Anxiety compressed me! I had to do something. There must be something I could do!
Suddenly it came to me: Invoke the power of the Universe and call on the angels for protection.
Without any thought of how ridiculous I might look, hidden behind the high gray walls of my private cubicle workstation as a long-term temp, five months on the job, I invoked the protection and projected it from my mind’s eye to the site of danger. I prayed to the Universe, to God, the angels, Archangel Michael, whoever might hear me (hoping they were all as real as I believed), asking for guidance and protection of my dogs, Ray, the house and all within it.
The protection ritual came into my mind step by step. I followed it spontaneously, just knowing what to say and do, guided as to what words to command, what images to visualize, and what physical gestures to project the protecting energy force toward our home.
I then left the cubicle for the privacy of the Ladies Room. There, amidst sanitary steel and ceramic, I thrust my arms into the air and, in a whispered tone, powerfully commanded and directed the protecting energy to my dogs and home.
I continued this ritual for about fifteen minutes. Suddenly the task felt complete and a calm contentment washed through me. I felt relaxed and at ease. Feeling totally free of concern, I returned to my cubicle and my work.
I truly released the outcome to the Universe, knowing I had done all I could and could do no more. I had invoked the forces of the Universe. I was resolved to any outcome, although I felt clearly that all was well. I felt comfortable, calm, and at peace; so I resumed my work tasks and gave no more real thought to the matter. It was one p.m.
When I returned home by bus at the end of the work day, my strong premonition proved to be true. I immediately ran through the house, grabbed up my floppy-eared Cabra and hugged her. Carrying my silver schnauzer in my arms, I hurried into the backyard. Che, my tan border collie, came crawling out of her doghouse, which was still in the same place as it was before in the yard. She was soaking wet but unharmed. She panted and her brown eyes were very big.
I turned and perused the yard. The tornado’s path was visible. It had indeed touched down in our block. The debris and lack of damage startlingly revealed the tornado’s journey. It had swept up right over our backyard, skipped up at the west fence, then dipped back down at the east fence, tearing out that fence but not damaging any part of our yard, including the wooden dog house only three feet away. From the east fence, the gusting tornado had ripped a trail right through the neighbor’s back lawn.
According to the six o’clock TV news, the tornado had touched down in our exact block as it sped toward the railroad tracks only half a block east … during the exact same fifteen minutes I was inner directed to send the protecting energy force.
Well, I surely believed in the Power then.
We are all connected through mind and energy, including to the earth and elements of nature. That is how the natural mental protection works. That is why we can indeed protect ourselves and our loved ones—by using the clearly directed power of our inner mind and inner will.
When we study with a regular discipline and daily apply ourselves to oneness with the Divine, we can be ready and prepared for any crisis. Intuitively and instinctively we can respond without a conscious recollection of how we know what to do.
We are able to fully defend our being, environment, and loved ones from circumstances that seem beyond anyone’s control. No matter how devastating a circumstance appears to be, how it affects each person is individual. We definitely can eliminate real danger, because everything is energy and is directed by mind.
Mental energy is the web of life that ties us all together and to all the elements in life. When we are clear and centered, in a moment of crisis or impending danger, all of our learned resolve comes to bear effortlessly and instinctively. As if we consciously invoked it, we are filled with a knowing and inimitable power to dissolve danger—by our focused thoughts and aligned energy presence.
When we live in sync with our higher divine will and we daily practice disciplines of mind and spirit (to manage our emotions and impulses), we can take on a mature perception toward the life forces and our connection with them. We become one with them in our intentions toward life.
In the midst of storms and natural disasters, without fear and with complete presence, we can invoke—without question—our full powerful Stature. Our whole Self knows life, is one with nature, and is aligned in clarity and balance. When our whole Self commands nature, nature obeys, because both are a part of the basic structure of physical existence: energy.

Can You Move a Flash Flood with Your Mind?
This happened to me… May this help you…
A swift, rushing flash flood deluged my entire neighborhood—except for my half of the Cheyenne Mountain duplex. It flooded my neighbor’s basement, as well as all the houses around me.
At eleven p.m., while I was ironing in the living room, a flash-flood warning came on the TV, instructing everyone in my neighborhood to evacuate immediately. I stopped in the middle of ironing and began running around a bit crazily, grabbing up things to put in the car: computer disks and volumes of as yet unpublished manuscripts. Then I looked frantically about the office at all of my important stuff. There was no way I could take everything that really mattered to me, a lifetime of creative materials I still planned to publish.
At that moment, a sudden clarity and assuredness overcame me and I found myself declaring—with all knowing and might—“It just can’t be!”
Instinctively I pulled up into my full height, stretching and filling with my old-soul warrior presence. My emotions centered to a dead calm, my mind cleared, and my thoughts sharpened to a laser efficiency.
I spun through the room, then the entire house, diligently declaring, “IT WILL NOT BE!”
Like a shaman, I drew on an instinctual subliminal soul memory and stormed throughout my two-story home. I thrust my arms upward and outward, room by room, projecting a force-field bubble of white light around the house, visualizing it clearly in my mind’s eye; thrusting outward the innate cosmic power in all directions, and commanding the flood waters AWAY. With the full splendor of my TOTAL BEING and with clear intention, I willed—in words, thoughts, and images—the waters to travel around my home … and I saw the area fully protected.
Suddenly the task felt complete and a calm contentment washed over me. The energy was set and I knew that I, my border collie Che and miniature schnauzer Cabra, our home and all within were safe. I went back to ironing and watching TV without any further thought on the matter. In fact, I forgot all about the flood. It escaped my mind.
The next day, my half of the duplex was the only residence in my entire extended neighborhood for several blocks around that did not get flooded. My duplex neighbor’s garden-level basement was flooded. Mine was dry.
I had overlooked only one item in my shaman ritual. When visualizing the waters going around my home, I had neglected to include in my mental picture the little fenced side yard that held my large heavy wooden doghouse. The flood waters had torn open the fence in several places and pushed the dog house twenty feet forward. But my home and my car in the front gravel driveway were dry … the only dry spot for miles around.

True story: Moving Strong Winds
Katie to Charol: “We’ve had significant winds [Wyoming]. Last night was kinda scary – dark clouds, whistling wind, etc. I was pretty nervous. So I decided to use what I read in the workbook [Intuition for Every Day] about calling forth help and redirecting the weather. I held my hands up (which I immediately felt get warm) and invoked the universe to shield our home and property – I saw a bubble around us and it glowed blue. I asked for help from the angels and it only took a couple minutes, and then like you said in the book – you just let it go and knew it would be okay. While I was in the process of doing this, I could hear the wind diminishing and when I went back in the living room – it literally had stopped! My hands get warm when I do Reiki, but I don’t usually feel it – the person receiving it does. So that was really neat. I just had to share!! I’m loving the workbook so far!!!” Katie Allen, reiki master, secretary by day
Charol: “Of course they did… You are powerful (a shaman) (intuitive ‘knowing’)… As for me, flu… Forest fire here, air filled with smoke. I was going out today, otherwise nice weather so guess not! (poor air quality).”
Katie: “I just got an email from FEMA about fire down there [Colorado], I’m sending energy there too. Sending you healing energy! Xxoo. Oh, and I was one of those that sent energy to that hurricane on the east coast [last year] – so many family members live there. I remember telling my mom that a bunch of us were sending energy to dissipate it before it got there…. I don’t know that she believed me, but I KNOW we had an effect!”
Charol: “I know we did, too. It was the only time I felt ‘prompted’ to do something like that… I’m sure it made a difference (intuitive ‘knowing’).”
Katie: “Goosebumps on the shaman comment. I’m studying shamanism!”
Charol: “Oh, wow…. hahaha. I must have ‘gotten’ that as an affirmation for you. You do know that all this ‘intuitive’ ‘channeled’ stuff is merely tapping into the consciousness…. Plugging into you, your whole self. Ancient Woman. Yes, we live in an era when [personal shamanism] will be needed more and more.”
That’s all I’ve got to-date. Everything I know, or have learned by experience how to do, is included in my book Intuition for Every Day. I wish you protection, safety, and confidence. It is yours! www.psychic-messenger.com
