The Taste of Electricity
    #475645 - 12/01/01 02:00 AM (22 years, 2 months ago)

Well its fading each day so I will relate my experience before I can no longer do so.

Earlier this week there was a lightning storm, and as alwayse I was uneasy all that day (before storm) and went through my daily routine in an excited/ restless state. When I came home from work I noticed something. Something was special. As I sniffed the air a menacing grin struck across my face, I could taste it! There was going to be a storm - a big one. About a half hour later I watched eagerly upon the horizon, and the storm was approaching like an impending army with its bright flashes and low rumble. Then it came, howling winds and huge bolts of lightning and thunder rattled windows, and set off car alarms. And then I became filled with an energy, my thoughts raced, my muscles felt stronger, my heart paced faster and faster, small beads of sweat rolled down the back of my neck. The energy radiating from me was so intense it could no longer be contained in any room. I ran outside streaking up and down streets at amazing speed, flying, and I could feel giant clouds of swirling blue, green, and white electricity around me. I can't even explain the razor sharp reflexes, and lightning quick thoughts that were fragments yet long and drawn out all at the same time.
The smell, the taste.

I was complete,
I was ascended.




It seems the more lightning the more profound the effects.
This was a great experience after not having any storms for a while. Well it looks like the energy is already starting to fade.
Is there anyone out there who either has, or knows, about this profound need for electricity?

Damn man that is crazy..mainly because you just described exactly what I did and felt a couple months ago when there was an intense lightning storm. It was the middle of July and I could feel the storm approaching, it made me very restless and I could sense it like an hour before it got there. The sky turned black really quick, and there was an eerie silence in the air..I could feel the energy shooting through me like shockwaves, I couldnt sit still......I ran outside and it started pouring rain and commencing with a huge lightning storm as I literally flew down the streets, if my legs were moving or not I couldnt tell you but I was going too fast to tell. At one point I even jumped into the air and landed about 30 feet away, it was quite an intense experience that I wont soon forget. My mind was racing through a million things all at once, I knew everything and nothing..I could do anything I thought of. Usually this only happens in my dreams but when it turns over into reality you know crazy shit is going on.

With a special concoction I was able to see electricity. Was I just trippin? Perhaps. However, my perception has remained somewhat altered... With some concentration and focus (un-focus) I can catch glimpses of energy still... I wish there was a storm brewing here, but I'm going to have to wait a long, long time...
My sensitivity to energy has been growing for awhile now... (since before the trip.) With more work I might be able to harness this power... What makes me so special you ask? Wishful thinking. :wink:

I intend to do more experimentation and study. I only hope it doesn't lead to the government harnessing the power of the life matrix... :tongue:

This is very interesting. The reason I don't discount it automatically is that my sister informed me today of some monks or something who sat cross legged (I believe) and then somehow jumped great distances. (It sounded more like launched than jumped.) Now, I'm not sure about this, but she told me that it was on some program about George Harrison, and that it took place when he was studying wherever it was that he was studying. She said he did it too...

The samurais of ancient japan could jump 7 metres in the air from a standing start. Tibetan monks are supposedly able to levitate while in deep mediatation.

We have become too focused on matter, it's time for the mind to take control over the matter again.

Regarding the original topic:
I haven't had nearly the effects you describe, but I do feel energized and excited when there's a storm brewing. Also at my previous work we had a lot of electrical trucks. When the were recharging I could feel the electrical field around them. There are definately more than 5 senses.

Your mind is matter. In order to see through matter you have to leave it behind totally and harness it in some other way.

Anyway, every time a storm comes my way I can feel it coming and it energizes me aswell. Often it brings me to the point a mental shift, other times I can predict with 8:10 accuracy where lighting will strike next, once it was almost like I could ask the lightning to stike in a place and it would. I get the same energizing feelings when I spend time around wild animals, and even household pets.

I instantly realized everything that was wrong with man kind.. cancer.. cancer.. A great sickness washed over me and I could feel myself sweating, we didn't steal any of teh signs from that place.. it would have taken too long, I felt like I was dying. I hate electricity.

That's evil electricity, you should know that Jared. It's production is harmful to the planet and results in wasted energy which is not free, hence evil. Heh.

SO Jesus hates me huh?

I totally agree with the mental shift. it was so strange like weilding an awesome power, menacing...maybe, insanity...almost, but total control.
Shroomism, thank god someone has felt the same way and done the same things (btw - one of my alltime greatest experiences).

but still i wonder why some are so attracted to electricity?

i alwayse feel energized during electrical storms for most/ all of my life but it seem to be getting more intense.

The reason some are attracted to electricity is the same as some are attracted to animals, or fire, or water, or the mountains, etc. It brings about an energizing of our body, I'd leap to say it energizes us enough to integrate our spirit even more, and bring the power of the universe more into our grasp. I beleive this is what buddhist monks do, energize there body to bring it to a higher resonance and more in tune with there spirit, which is in perfect tune with the universe. Different energizers affect different body and mental types, but affect us all the same. As you get used to the resonance increase you begin to seek it out more, and it becomes easier for you to reach higher levels, I beleive eventually resonance from these energizers plateaus, and another method is needed to bring your bodily resonance even higher.

    #480262 - 12/05/01 12:42 AM (22 years, 2 months ago)

A while ago, before I really felt mind expansion was a need, I was doing electrical work. On the job (coincidentally the last electrical job I've had...), a 480-volt circuit blew about 8 inches from my left foot. on my left about three steps, there was a concrete wall, and on the right about two steps, was a gate, about six feet high, unopenable. I didn't see the circuit blow, as I was watching for welders above, but it seemed as if I sensed it a fraction of a second before it happened.

Needless to say I scaled the fence, almost without touching it, and the explosion actually occured as I was en route to the fence.

That experience forced my brain to recognize another sense, in a sense... I, like many of you in this thread, feel storms brewing, feel lightning striking, etc.

Our bodies depend on electricity as much as they depend on water, blood, the heart, or anything else. Our nervous system is simply a network of complex electrical circuitry. I guess my question is: Why does it take an incident like this to awaken our bodies'(or mind's, whatever you like) sensory knowledge of all forms of energy?

Before this happened, I was never aware of any electrical contact at all, but now, in my home, at the office, I'm shocked every time I turn on a light switch.

As I read the post to which I'm replying, a possible explanation could be higher resonance levels. Maybe in order for the body/mind to recognize the existence of life in its simplest form(energy), it must be hit with an enormous amount of that energy, causing heightened awareness. If that's the case, maybe that's why electrocution happens. Enough electricity run through the body causes the spirit to immediately continue to the next form of being, vacating the body.

Ok, maybe I'm just high, but maybe, just maybe I'm on to something. Something to kick around, anyway.

I'm glad I shared a similar experience to you. In fact I had almost forgotten about it since I had not shared it with anyone since it happened, so I'm glad it happened to you because it helped me remember.
We all have a special connection with the elements. I was at a gathering a few years ago and a shaman told me that I was the wind. This struck a chord deep inside me as I realized this was true. Then I thought that I am aquarius, so that must not be true, since aquarius is water. Then I checked an astrology chart and aquarius' element is air! Quite a surprise. I think though that electricity and magnetism are able to associate with all of the elements, and therefore effect each one in a different way.
If you don't mind me asking...what is your sign?

Actually that was for Zeus, but I find that interesting as well. Capricorn's element is also air if I'm not mistaken.

element is Earth. Just researched that. The energy and shocking when I turn on the light switch makes sense from that aspect now...

What you are 'tasting" is the increase in ozone (O3) and positive ions. Nothing too mysterious about that.

As far as I can theorize these abilities and senses lie in hibernation within all of us from birth. However we can't use them and don't realize they are there until the energy in our bodies is brought to a higher level, or resonance (vibrational speed). This can, and usually is, brought upon by semi-traumatic/traumatic experiences involving an resonance increasing energy source. Before the socket blew, no doubt electricity was building and compounding in the area, shocking your system into using your hibernating sences which allowed you to sence this explosion before it happend. It probably had enough of an affect on your energy systems, that it permanently increased your frequencies and allowed for you to use these senses more readily. I for instance have been indirectly "struck" by lightning quite a few times since I was a child, meaning the lighting hit something I was standing near, and I received a good portion of the shock, not enough to cause any major damage though.

I also think that this awareness can be forcefully brought about through meditation and strict practice. Although this method will give you more power over the senses, it also takes much longer to acheive.

I think electrocution (major) causes a spontaneous polarity switch which can eject the bodies energy systems (spirit/soul). Sometimes it returns, but often it neglects to return to the body and moves on. Minor electrocution may serve as an awakening to the sences however. I think the utlimate goal is to bring the entire body, not just its energies, up to a higher resonance. Succesfully converting matter to energy, and increasing the overall awareness of your soul.

O3 would be heavier than O, so perhaps you are just 1/3 as heavy in ozone as in oxygene? No, I know that's not true...

Iv'e felt electrical fields myself (not tasted), and it energized me, so I think there's something true about this tale.

And I believe in tales about samurais in ancient japan jumping 7 meters up in the air from a standing start, so why not you too?

Why are miracles and special powers limited to ancient times? Because of exaggerated storytelling through the centuries. If anyone could jump 7 meters we would see them in the Olympics or the NBA

Here you use the word "every" which implies complete repeatability. If you truly had this sense and it is not self-deception, it would be very easy to test for and could net you Randi's $10,000,000. However, I tend to believe it is some sort of fear association.

Valid point, swami, and I tend to agree, it is surely valid for most tales. Butt the methods contestants in the olympics use aren't as powerfull as the extreme focus of mind exhibited by the samurais. Look at shao-lin monks (very real people existing now), in my opinion they have superior body control to those wo attend the olympics. Although I am biased, as I never watch any sport...
I just believe in the power of the mind. (yeah, I know it's not a very convincing post, but don't let's suffocate this thread with dispute :peace:

And how are you measuring focus? A gymnast is not a swordsman nor vice versa? These are very different disciplines.

Look at shao-lin monks (very real people existing now), in my opinion they have superior body control to those wo attend the olympics.
Again, I ask you in what way? A shaolin monk ( I am a student of shaolin kung fu - albeit a rank beginner) may have superb fighting skills and the ability to regulate body temperature and breathing, but they cannot run a 4 minute mile nor clean & jerk 500 pounds. I see supreme focus in both endeavors, but no superiority.

BTW - this asking for clarification of your point is not an argument, but a discussion.

From any anecdote, how can one draw conclusions or offer explanantions? I have no way to verifiy if this is a tall tale or a real event. Without evidence, I tend to apply occam's razor. It is a more plausible explanation that you are fabricating this story than the claim that you can fly while the rest of us are bound by gravity.

I would tend to believe that one could leap a great distance while being severely shocked as high voltage may cause tremendous reflexive muscular contraction, but only for the moment while stimulated and would be likely to cause serious damage. This does not sound like anything that you are describing.

Umm, I was tired as I wrote that post, and hadn't slept the whole night, eh, i don't get away witht hat one, do I? ach, I though so...

And how are you measuring focus? A gymnast is not a swordsman nor vice versa? These are very different disciplines.
I was thinking about their control of the body. I realised that professional athletes do indeed need high control over their body, and that my points were quite invalid, but I didn't care. But

Again, I ask you in what way? A shaolin monk ( I am a student of shaolin kung fu - albeit a rank beginner) may have superb fighting skills and the ability to regulate body temperature and breathing, but they cannot run a 4 minute mile nor clean & jerk 500 pounds. I see supreme focus in both endeavors, but no superiority.
True, and keeping (loosely) in topic with this thread (and my initial statement that you reacted to ), I think they would have a better chance of being able to jump that far up in the air. Without a pole. It seems unlikely to me that this particular feat would be possible by training ones body only. There would be need for more training of the mind in order to accomplish that. Therein lies their superiority. Merely in their allround control of their body. Their focus is more versatile, I imagine.

The thing I initially had in mind, I think, was that the human mind and body are able to do accomplish, by our standards, enormous acrobatical feats. One (rather mundane, and not exactly enourmous, but personal) example: In the army we were running, and had to complete the course in 15 minutes, the last 200-300 meters, when I was so exhausted I just wanted to drop dead, an officer came up besides me and started yelling and telling me I could do it, psyching me up. I thought what the hell and ran away almost faster than I had the whole previous time.
Many of our limits are only percieved, and falsely so, limits.

Other than that I made my claim purely based on that the closest thing to the samurai today are the shaolin regarding "super"human feats. (I may be entirely wrong, in which case I would very much like to be informed of it)

I thought what the hell and ran away almost faster than I had the whole previous time. Many of our limits are only percieved, and falsely so, limits.

Had a similar experience when a ran a marathon without training because I was visiting my dad and brother and they are avid runners. I am weight-lifter and have a short heavy body not at all built for distance: 5'8" 185lbs. I decided to try to finish 16 miles at 9 minutes per mile. I made it pretty much on schedule. The course finish line was the same as the 16 mile cutoff; so as I was coming down the last half mile the crowds were lined up 5 deep. Lo and behold I just happened to coming in with the top runners who had lapped me by 10 miles. The crowd was unaware of that and I could care less as my accomplishment was a personal victory (I had never run more than 4 miles before!) AS I was dragging my sorry ass in, the crowd got excited and warned me that the number 5 runner was gaining on me. So what? I got pulled into the moment and actuall RACED this guy who was running about a 4:50 per mile pace and beat him to the finish! Was the most amazing thing I ever did physically. However, when I crossed the finish line I collapsed into the fetal position and cried and shivered involuntarily. I could not move for hours as I did serious short-term damage.

My point is: yes we have untapped reserves, however it might not be just a mental block, but a protection from overextending ourselves. I have seen rabbits die from trying to outrun a hound.

The proof is in the pudding.

Your points are valid, and I agree with you. I must also confess I base this on nothing more than belief.

But I have a story for you that I just remembered. On several occasions my father has told me about a strange "power" of ability my grandfather posessed (he passed away before my birth). He owned an inn in Germany before and throughout the war, and sometimes, when there were many people there he would wager a bet he would always win. The bet was that if he would lay down on the floor, they would not be able to lift him from the ground. They were of course more than one man cooperating. I believe the most who tried were seven men, and they could not lift him from the floor at all.

How could this be an untapped reserve? And there were no tricks involved. I do not know if he could do it  time after time, or if it exhausted him, but it is my impression that he did not do this very often. Ah, the tales, everybody should talk to their parents/grandparents more...

BTW: My father's "superpower" is that he can have anybody dance(!), or just stand, on his stomach, at least when he was younger. (A giirlfriend of my brother almost broke his ribs as she didn't take of her high-heeled shoes...)
I am eagerly waiting to discover my superpower. I suspect it has something to do with extreme selective memory or a marathon-worthy wandering mind :smile:
