When I think about the chances of rain, I think about a book entitled Rolling Thunder by Douglas Boyd. Rolling Thunder was particularly known for his ability to manifest rain and was the subject of a study done at the Menninger Institute. He would find a beetle, poke at it with a stick and immediately thunder would roll and the rain would come thereafter. In looking up details for this blog I discovered that there is a more recent book put out by other well known authors who witnessed first hand all of his incredible gifts and abilities.
When I went to the Hopi mesas in 1985 with a group of 9 people, we were led by a shaman who unbeknownst to us were watching us to see how we interacted with the land and the weather. On the first day we were let loose on top of a huge mesa top and given instructions to look for rabbit droppings. We were all silent and reverent as we looked for the droppings and rain began to fall. The shaman said we had passed our first test because the rain appeared. The Hopis are known for producing rain to water their arid lands and they have magnificent corn.
I also think of the movie Emerald Forest which is a true story where the Amazonian Indians did not want to have a dam built so they called on the frogs to help them destroy the dam. Amazingly the dam was crippled and abandoned.
These stories demonstrate to me the innate abilities we all have to heal and yes....even bring rain when it is needed.
