Hurricane Irma & Know You Are A Force of Nature, Too

Bastrop County Complex Fire

Doesn’t it look like a claw of a beast with sharp nails?

Friend,

The day before Hurricane Irma arrived in Florida, I had a long talk with a friend who was on its projected path but decided to ride it out.

I shared with her empowering stories, found below, of people who were in the eye of hurricanes or surrounded by fire and created a different experience than others.

Irma thrashed her city with very intense wind and rain for 28 hours. However, the eye of Irma’s original path shifted to the west of her, the tornadoes were north, and she was in an area with the lowest amount of anticipated storm surge than anywhere on either coast.

She texted me to say she got through it unscathed with the exception of losing two palm trees and power.

As everyone in Florida felt Irma’s force and destruction, please take a moment now to send your positive energy, blessings and prayers.

The South of the U.S. has had its share of natural disasters with hurricanes and fire.

There were Hurricanes Katrina, Ike and Rita, amongst many others.

On September 4, 2011, three separate fires ignited as a result of powerful winds from Tropical Storm Lee. These individual fires joined forces to create one massive blaze in September and October 2011.

The Bastrop County Complex fire, located in Central Texas about 45 minutes east of Austin, became the most destructive wildfire in Texas history.

Especially with hurricane and fires careening across America, here’s a reprint of a Soulgoals’ blog post that show how some people helped to protect themselves from disaster.

With gratitude, Virginia

 

September 26, 2011 —  Reposting from Soulgoals’ Blog:

If disasters scare you or you’re inspired by people making empowered choices, then read these astounding stories. Learning from them may, one day, save you from harm.

You, too, can overcome ANY challenge in your life.

You Are a Force of Nature

A friend who survived Hurricanes Rita and Katrina told me:

“Recognize you are a vortex of power and have as much energy to create in your life as a tornado or hurricane. You are a force of nature. Don’t put yourself as a lesser being that can be jostled about.

“Where I’m living and standing is sacred and remains that way. If there are earth changes taking place, that’s one thing. But my choices of what I experience are different.”

Instead of fear she chose:

  • Safety for her family and their property
  • To feel calm and peaceful (the opposite of a raging hurricane) instead of fearful
  • To ask for divine protection and trust it.

Results: The only damage she incurred from being in the eye of Hurricane Katrina was that part of a gutter was knocked down. While devastation rained on the community and most roofs needed repair, including a nearby house that was split in two by a fallen tree, my friend’s and her neighbors’ homes were safe. Trees fell but missed their houses and vehicles. A shingle flew off and broke someone’s window pane without breaking the window.

How Can This Happen? All Life Is Energy.


Energy reacts to energy. Hurricanes react to swirling emotions. Raging and confused fires react to rage and confusion. Both also react to thoughts of peace, calm and love. 


My friend’s experience isn’t an isolated incident.

  • She had two other properties that remained untouched, including a dock where everyone’s shingles blew off their roofs but hers.
  • A friend told me about a little girl in Houston who hugged her favorite tree and told it to be safe before Hurricane Ike struck. That tree was the only one in the yard that survived.
  • I was at a restaurant with friends when they learned that fires broke out next to their home. We all remained calm, ordered and ate dinner as we asked for divine intervention and focused on prayers of protection. They received phone updates that the fire burned over a mile of trees including their next door neighbor’s home, but it stopped at the edge of their property only scorching some tree branches and grass.

How One Woman Avoided the Raging Texas Wildfires

I received a request to send positive energy to Sheera Rexroad, a phenomenal body worker I’ve used for many years, and her farm near Bastrop, TX, where over 1300 homes were destroyed.  Later, I received the results of her focused intention and trust in a force far greater than the fires.

Most people would go into fear and survival and hope things would work out while being filled with terror and doubt. Sheera made different decisions with miraculous results.

Fascinated with Sheera’s story, I’ve communicated with her through several phone conversations and emails. I’ve chronicled her experience, and now you can read it in her own words:

I saw the fire’s magnitude and told my brother we had to pray for protection. 

Smoke filled the not too distant area.  I called a neighbor who answered and, over the roar of his bulldozer cutting firebreaks, he told us these fires were bad and to warn all of our neighbors to pack and prepare.

At that moment, I knew that informing others and seeing to the safety of livestock were more important than immediately going home to pack. I called people with positive strength and awareness asking for their help.

I asked that they join me in visualizing the bubble of protection, the impenetrable force field, that the property, houses and animals of One Girl Farm and Ranch de Kris are safe. That I was not being selfish, that we needed a safe and secure base to serve from.  That we had much to do to help humanity.

We stopped and shared the message along our road and called the rest of the neighbors.

My only fear was that I might pick the wrong stuff to take with me or I’d take too long and wouldn’t make it to my brother.

I told the cows to have no fear – that if we have fear, they win. Others have fear; don’t give in to their fears. Their fears are not ours.

The Ravenous, Hungry Fire-Beast

We could clearly see the massive flames in front of us to the west.  They were large, like the flames of an oil derrick when it blows.

Torches of orange were leaping into the early evening sky already heavy with smoke.  White smoke, yellow smoke, black smoke.

The sirens of fire engines, sheriff and emergency vehicles competed with the blasting walkie-talkies, the moos of cattle and the roar of bulldozers ripping at the earth.  My senses were full. My heart was full as well.

I knew, I just knew that my immediate world was safe and secure.

Once we were off of the land and on ‘safely higher ground’ I was able to access my vision of the fire. This is what I saw:

This fire is a ravenous, hungry beast with a huge desire to indiscriminately consume mass amounts.  It raced thru the countryside gobbling up all in its path. It charged at the north boundary fence of One Girl Farm. The hot-flamed tongue of the fire-beast attempted to chomp thru the fence – it stopped. It shook its mouth and spat out what it thought it had desired like a toddler that bites something yucky.

The NO BURN ZONE that we were holding solid with our requests, our prayers, our positive thoughts did not taste good.

In Part 2, you’ll find out what happened to the fire as it traveled along her western fence, what she said to create the NO BURN ZONE and the power of group thought and prayer.

By the way, know someone who might like to read this? Please forward.

I work with people, at any age, who choose to share their gifts or business in a BIGGER way but don’t know how, feel stuck or would benefit from new tools or support.

I help them be richly compensated doing what they love by aligning with their Soul’s goals.

You Are A Force Of Nature – Part 2

October 4, 2011

Part 1 shares how a NO BURN ZONE was created in the midst of the Texas fires. Results? People, their property and animals were unharmed. Read Part 2 to learn more about how they did it. Sheera Rexroad’s account of her personal experience with the ravenous, fire beast continues.

The Texas fires had to move on.

The fire had a huge hunger as it traveled along the fence line to the west.  It would dart in for a quick taste with its fire tongue here and there.  It shook off each taste and moved on along the north fence of Ranch de Kris.

By now the big, mean fire was weak and floundering; it needed tasty bits and soon to feed its rage.

We had NONE to offer.

It slithered further to the west and jumped through the fence into the neighboring property west of Ranch de Kris. It burned there but, not satisfied, it continued westward to the next property and beyond.

This Delhi fire was powerful and fast. It jumped containment lines and roads several times before it came close to where we live.  One of the fire balls grazed the heads of the all volunteer firefighters when it jumped a firebreak.

I knew that the land that I live on and steward was untouched.  I knew that the land where my brother lives was untouched. This I felt, and this I knew.

Gratitude and the power of intention 

This is Sheera’s email a few days after the fire continued its rampage. Her powerful belief and invocation created the mold for the NO BURN ZONE. The fire was confused; she was not. 

First, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your powerful and positive thoughts.

Your prayers and requests are holding safe space for us.

I ask and know that the property that we both live on and take care of will make it through the fires unharmed.

I ask and know that the houses that we shelter in will be unharmed.

I ask and know that the animals that we steward are secure and safe.

I know that there is much designed for me to do, and that what I have been involved in so far is not to be taken by some confused flames.

I know that I, Sheera of One Girl Farm, and my brother, Kris – of Ranch de Kris, are to be safe and cared for.

I ask that you continue in your vigils.  We can feel it.  We can see the evidence of asking for protection.

We are strong.  We are determined. We know that what we ask for, pray for, request is answered.

Your efforts and energies are dynamic.

Please do not stop.

My thoughts

Sheera made choices that spared her family, farms and animals from personal disaster when she:

  • Invoked an inner determination and strength
  • Knew her family, their property and animals would be safe
  • Affirmatively spoke forth the outcome she chose
  • Visualized a NO BURN ZONE of protection from the fire
  • Was motivated by her request that served a bigger purpose
  • Created an impromptu mastermind group to send prayers, love, safety and protection before she packed to evacuate.

What about the properties that burned? 

My neighbor’s home burned down a year after her lake house succumbed to fire. A couple of months later, she was calm and peaceful when she told me it was a blessing. Huh?

Before then she lived in a world where people didn’t care about one another, only themselves. That changed when total strangers, organizations, churches and the community helped with clothing, food and more.

Her heart and mind opened to the love and care of others. For her, it was a lesson that had more value than worldly goods.  

What benefit could come from burned farm land? Farmers couldn’t collect insurance because of the drought. However, many could from fire. 

Every experience teaches. It’s all good, regardless of appearance. Look for the gift.

By the way, a week after the Texas fires, during a drought with no rain, amidst the ashes, here and there, sprigs of green grass appeared. Renewal and rebirth heralded a new cycle.

You can choose your reactions and actions.

You do NOT have to give your power away to fear or discouragement.  The flames of anger, doubt and confusion do not have to eat away at you.

You may have what appear to be unstoppable forces occurring in your life. Remember: “You are a force of nature. Don’t put yourself as a lesser being that can be jostled about.”
