Being from La. and in the direct path of Hurricane Gustav was very frightening and unsettling to say the least. As a practitioner of energetic healing, I knew the power of intentions. There is a website conducting the Intention Experiment for world peace, complying scientific data of the number of people participating.

Would it be possible to focus this intention concerning the storm? Because of increased technology in forecasting weather conditions, we were able to get advance warnings about the approaching storms and tropical depressions.

Many people who are aware of the dynamics of focused intention began to put that into practice. People from all over the world joined in with prayers and intentions for the weather conditions to dissipate. At one point I gave into the panic and fear when hearing that Hurricane Gustave could be a category 5 when it reached our area. This means winds over 155 miles per hour and devastation for everything in its path with storm surges higher than 18 feet above normal. By the time the hurricane came over our area, it had diminished to a category 1-2. Category 1 has winds 74-95 mph and category 2 has winds of 96-110 mph. Although we had much to be grateful for, many people fled from their homes, others still not having water or electricity and still others suffered much destruction of property and some fatalities.

What do you do? Was there time to leave the area? Leaving meant many hours on the road with a possibility that there would not be any gas available. Where would you go? The hurricane could change and go in any direction at a moments notice. What about the home that you were leaving? Do you have enough time to safeguard your property? Many areas had mandatory evacuations. If anything was learned from Hurricane Katrina and Rita, it was being more prepared.

Although there was still destruction, it could have been so much worse.
My area was protected and I am very grateful for that. However, there are more storms that are forming.

My request is for everyone reading this to help with the intention of dissipating these catastrophic events. I feel that the collective consciousness is a very powerful thing that should be recognized. Everything responds to vibration and the power that our thoughts have to attract or change events is enormous. Please use your intention as often as you like, but particularly during the times of 9AM and 9PM.
