Hmm. O...kay. This is the first, and probably the last time I'm going to talk about this subject on this board publicly, as a number of people here already think I'm dotty enough. I've done weird stuff and had weird stuff happen after that seemed to be eerily connected. Does it work consistently? no...Are they connected?:shrug: It seems as if I take a flock of Butterfly Effects and shoo them in random directions. And sometimes...things happen. Or in one rather spectacular case , fail to happen. I felt the trailer was under threat...at the time I was living in it with my Mom, her annoying boyfriend (now ex) and my little brother. This conviction grew in my mind for two more days: the house was really under threat. So I burnt a candle, entered a light trance and warded the trailer. The day after that, a tornado missed the trailer by about thirty feet, vacuuming my neighbor's roof off, and completely clearing the neighbor across the street's lot. His trailer, shed and carport were vanished as if they'd never been. (The fragments ended up in a treeline over a mile away.) My mom had just pulled into the driveway and was sitting in her car, too afraid to move. The boyfriend and my brother were home-and watched the roof get peeled very neatly from the top of the trailer house next door. I was out getting car parts-had I been home, my car would have gotten damage from heavy debris rained on it. Did I have an effect on where the tornado went? who knows? Was I having a premonition? yes, but what about all those false premonitions I also have? Should I practice this stuff more often? It seems to help my mental state, if nothing else... Like I said...all sorts of weird unknowns there. And to claim to know things I don't...well, this isn't like pulling a lever. Far too easy to self-delude about what effects you're having, if any. My gray file of unknowns is a very large thing.
