Have you ever felt that a thunderstom gives you power?

Asked by brinibear (1388points) August 10th, 2009

Well, evertime a storms rolls through, I feel like I have magical powers. Like all the energy wants to go through my hands. I know it is weird, but I just feel more energetic when the storms come through. Have you ever felt that way?

I can feel the energy in the air and it can get the adrenaline going, but I have never felt it gave me some sort of power or magical touch.

During a thunderstorm I go connect the cables in my hidden basement lab to the lightning rod on my roof. I then connect the other end of the cables to the gestation pods. oops! Sorry, @brinibear I forgot I never told you the story of how you came to us!

Storms make me like that too, especially really windy ones.

I wouldn’t say that storms give me a feeling of powert but they certainly give me a sense of calm.

I love thunderstorms, but I’m not sure they give me power. I find them to be oddly exciting and calming at the same time.

I thought I was weird…I feel that feeling too. I feel like the Hulk.

I used to say “Stop it, God!” when I was three or four when it thundered and the sky flashed with lightning.

Growing up in the Northeast, I knew they were dangerous, but I always thought they were thrilling and wonderful. Hurricanes, too, and even blizzards. I miss them all, here in California, where earthquakes can do more damage in a few seconds but aren’t really fun at all.

I miss Cali, I just moved back from there, but the storms that I saw was nothing like they are here in CO. I was watching the news the other day, and they mentioned that Co has the second most lightning strikes, with Fl first. So now I know why I have so much more “mystical energy” when there are storms. Speaking of there is one going on right now. :)

I sometimes get the feeling it takes my power away, when all lights go out and I am looking for the flashlights.

Seriously, thunderstorms can create powerful emotions and this might have something to do with our genetic memory.

Explain, please, @mattbrowne?

From Wikipedia: genetic memory is a memory present at birth that exists in the absence of sensory experience, and is incorporated into the genome over long spans of time.

Examples would include sudden darkness, sudden bright lights, loud cracks, great heights, large spiders, large snakes and so forth. Thunderstorms are a phenomenon on Earth for many million years. Lightnings can kill living beings and we are all descendants of survivors who have taken necessary precautions. We inherited their wariness.
