Dry Land Rain-Making
In this article, I’m going to share my research and experience with making it rain. Nevermind the data-less climate “crisis.” The need for rain in dry environments is obvious. Well, it just so happens that human beings possess the ability to cause rain to fall. How? Let’s look at some of the methods I found.
Plant “rain trees” – species such as Ocotea foetens, the original “rain tree,” are known to condense water and shed it like
rain. So much so that some villages where it grows as a native plant are able to get over 80% of their water from these trees. Another rain tree grows in the Amazonian rainforest, but Americans are very familiar with it; the Brazil Nut or Bertholletia excelsa. This species makes it rain by drawing water 14 stories from beneath the soil surface, where the leaves release it to condense as rain clouds. Half of the rainfall over the Amazon rainforest comes from trees like this one. Note: it can be difficult to find seeds or seedlings of these trees, if you wish to try your hand at cultivating them. Be sure to confirm any seeds you buy have not been boiled or otherwise treated, so that they remain viable for planting. Even if you simply plant more of any variety of trees that grow in your area, you’ll more than likely thereby cool the soil, increase moisture in the vicinity, and provide vital microclimate conditions for additional diverse species to take root. Science is perennially failing to acknowledge what people intuitively find until much later on, so while we wait for scientists to admit the next amazing breakthrough, we can plant trees!
Dance and sing for rain – I’ve tried this several times in drought-stricken parts of the country, and it rained very soon afterward. I don’t follow any kind of formula for my rain invocations. Once I happened to be recording a vlog on my way into downtown Ashland, Oregon, when I decided to try and break the awful drought. I simply started singing, and the words flowed in a nice rhyme. The next day the drought broke and it rained for several days. I captured all of this on video! Another time I began to walk with heavy footsteps up a road leading out of the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, during a long drought. While sitting on my porch with a friend a couple of days later, the sky suddenly opened up and dumped buckets. My friend was stranded until it let up! I’ve also done it in West Texas, walking with a rhythm that comes to me and singing in a way that feels right. Rain has followed these steps and vocalizations within a few hours or days as well. Native American tribes like the Ohlone, Lakota, and Cherokee still hold traditional rainmaking ceremonies, and for one South Africa tribe, a woman is elected to invoke rain via ceremonies.
Use quantum physics – For this article, I looked online to see if any rain dances have ever been videotaped, and in the one I found I noticed that the shells on the dancer’s costume sound like rain. This is IMHO likely a part of why it works, as like attracts like according to quantum physics. Esther Hicks told a story about how she looked at her parched landscape and considered how much she enjoyed it when rain fell. She talked about the way flowers bloom and the air smells fresh, etc. It rained afterward.
Build a rain making machine – This isn’t something I feel I can share here, but I’ve reverse-engineered a machine that has been used around the world to bring rainstorms to parched lands. The result is astonishing, as not only does it work within a day or two, but over time satellite imagery has shown ephemeral streams and lakes returning to deserts after the machine was used. I’ll keep you posted as to my success with the one I’m building.
Whether or not you try these methods of bringing rain when the land where you live needs it, I hope they inspire you to do your own investigation into this subject. A word of caution: consider the motives of the source of the information you find. Rain can dramatically help restore a land’s ability to produce food, shelter, and building materials. A community can harvest, infiltrate, and store rainwater, and wildlife and plants can regrow with adequate water. This means independence. Knowing there are forces hard at work to keep all of us enslaved and dependent, keep your eyes open and remember that Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels utilized psychological techniques that are still in wide use by the U.S. mainstream media. “The best lies contain within them nuggets of truth, enough to give a listener pause.” – George R.R.
