    My first shot at cloud slicing, I did it wrong. Supposed to be lying in the grass- I was sat in a plastic chair, on a red brick patio. It wasn't an ideal day for it- some chem trail wake, hazy cloud cover. But a few fluffies off in the distance.

    Pick out a fluffy and start concentrating. Spent some time, nothing really happening. Then I sort of half blink, lose focus just momentarily. When I refocus on the cloud, it seems as though the picture has shifted significantly. It looks like the crosshairs of a telescopic gun sight is directly over the center of one half of the cloud I was trying to slice. Other clouds look like blood spray or lines of force ejecting from the center of that half cloud. Like I had just shot it.

    Then, just as I realize what I'm looking at, a light breeze blows up behind me just enough to play two notes on the wind chime alongside. The last one higher than the first. Like a Duck Hunt video game confirming a target hit. Ding, ding!

    I laughed for long while. I told myself that this was Rani's idea of what my cloud slicing looks like. Not mine. Either that, or there's something about plastic and red brick that turns me into a caricature of myself...

    Nah. It's probably Rani's fault.

    Haha, nice one man. I’m sure you’ll get better with practice.
    Haven’t tried it yet, although I do cast spells for rain occasionally, its usually a fifty-fifty.
    A while ago, I was looking up free-energy stuff (my understanding was, these Tesla-tech devices somehow affected the field above them, affecting weather), and I had found some “weirdo” ESP renegades trying to fight off tornadoes and hurricanes by teaming up together using their intentions to influence those weather patterns.
    I wonder how many storms are prevented thanks to people like them. Unsung heroes!

    haha, good stuff.

    there's no right or wrong way to do it. I like to find a little cluster of clouds and pick one in the middle, that way you can't rationalise it out and say 'oh, it was just going to dissolve anyway'

    we can influence the local weather in all sorts of ways. Rain dances were in effect a way to build up a dam in the ether which slows down the water vapour behind it causing clouds to form. trevor james constable explains it really well, and there's plenty of videos of him in planes doing just that with only a couple of tubes.

    also, if you are gordon white and you wanna get out the big guns to put out a fire threatening your farm, you summon a MF'ing dragon.

    I heard a reference once to a druid that called a storm large enough to stop a Roman invasion. I wish I knew anything about it.

    You seen this?

    summon a MF'ing dragon.

    That is fucking CRAZY. I heard him talk about the cloud picture and figured it would be much more abstract than that. Is that for real??? That is FUCKING CRAZY! How many people were working on that???

    I tend to think dragons are to be slain, not summoned. But if that meteorological is for real, that is some impressive work.

    The fucked thing about magic is that it almost never comes with confirmation like that. Shit just goes your way and you never really know if you caused it to happen or if it would have gone that way anyway. That cloud picture is ALL BALLS. You have to be jealous of a wink and a nod from the universe like that.
