Myth Buster 42: Lightning Storm is A Sign of Bad Omen!

Published Hunyo 8, 2016 by jptan2012

Photos-of-Lightning12On July 10, 1856 a pregnant woman went into labor. While delivering her baby around midnight, there was a strong lightning storm. Thus while delivering the child, the midwife got pretty scared, and when everything has settled, the midwife told the new mother that her son is a child of darkness. It was said that the mother got scared for she knew about the belief that lightning storm are a sign of bad omen and/or that it shows that the child is a child of evil. Which is another pervading belief in some Eastern European countries.

The child is Nikola Tesla, a Serbian scientist who later became an American. He worked for Thomas Edison, and while he is not as famous as Thomas Edison, his discovery and invention of the modern Alternating Current (AC) electrical supply has greatly impacted on how we use electricity these days.


Nikola Tesla

Nikola Tesla is the living proof that Lightning Storms are not bad omen. In fact, regular readers of this blog, especially those who have the world’s most powerful amulet in the Buddhist pantheon, the Vajrapani Ruel, would know that Bodhisattva Vajrapani is of the Vajra lineage and He has the power of the lightning and thunder.

Having said this, contrary to the popular belief that lightning storm is a bad omen, if we only tap into it’s power, lightning storm can help change bad luck to good luck.

Simple Ritual to Tap Into the Power of a Lightning

Published Agosto 2, 2015 by jptan2012

Photos-of-Lightning12In my preceding post I talked about how the lightning can help boost our luck. Today, I would like to share with you a simple ritual to help us tap into the power of a lightning.

If there is a thunderstorm with some lightning, place a crystal on your lawn or any open space. For this purpose a clear quartz or an amethyst generator crystals are preferred.

After the thunderstorm get them and pat them dry.

This is a sample of generator crystal.

If you are having a spade if bad luck, seat on the floor on a lotus position, put the crystal in front of you and imagine that a bright light is coming out from the crystal. Do this for about 10 minutes and voila you’ve tapped into the power of a lightning.

According to my Feng Shui teacher this can be used for 3 times before you need to have the crystal have a lightning bath again.

lightningMost of us are afraid of lightning and I can’t say that there is no reason for us to be afraid of it. First, there are no obvious and practical reasons that a lightning gives us. Second, who wouldn’t be scare of the thousands of volts going through one’s body? In fact, lightning is almost always destructive and fatal.

Recently, I read news about a man getting hit by a lightning and then he won the lottery. This got me thinking whether there is a connection between being hit by a lightning and winning the lottery. Let me explain why.

My Feng Shui teacher actually loves lightning, he said this is one of the most powerful Yang energy can tap into that is if we can fully tap into its yang energy. Come to think of it, a lightning is a very powerful Yang energy that it lightens up a Yin energy of the night. I’m sure most of us are familiar as to how can the skies or our surrounding becomes so bright for a fraction of a second if there’s a lightning. Furthermore, even if we have a lightning in the daytime, we can still see that the lightning is capable of brightening the sky a little.lottery

A lot of the wrathful images of Buddhas or Bodhisattvas depict them holding a lighting bolt; this is to signify their power over darkness. In fact, the ruling Bodhisattva of the Vajrapani Ruel, Vajrapani Bodhisattva has a Vajra, which is ball of lightning or thunderbolt or lightning bolt. Vajrapani Bodhisattva himself is a member of the Vajra family.

They say that being hit by a lightning and winning a lottery has a combined chance of 1 in 2.6 trillion, so maybe being hit by a lightning and surviving it gave him this chance of winning it. I remember a deaf person when he was hit by a lightning survived it and started to hear again.

According to my Feng Shui teacher if we can tap into the yang energy of a lightning even just a fraction of it, this will help boost our luck.

On my next post, I will talk about how one can tap into a very small fraction of the yang energy of a lightning.
