Only a few days into a new paranormal investigation that began in 2010, I encountered an entity and a phenomenon that still keeps me awake some nights, and is a constant topic of discussion wherever I speak publicly. I have given much thought (obviously) to this matter and have honed a theory from my experience, as well as the experiences of my team and others who have encountered this entity.
I had turned in early, due to having an interview with a client for our newest case. Unlike most nights, I fell asleep with little struggle and managed to sleep through the night…most of the night anyway. It was around 3am when I was awakened by a rogue thunderstorm that had not been forecast. Thunder boomed so loudly that it rattled my windows and snatched me from my peaceful slumber. I was disoriented, not expecting the storm, but having a love of severe weather, I was content. Normally, I would open the curtains and blinds to watch the lightning but this night, things felt different. Something was off. As my eyes began to adjust to the darkness, I scanned the room. There was an energy in the room that I could literally feel. The hairs on my arms stood on end and my senses felt heightened. My eyes peered through the night picking out familiar shapes in my bedroom, but my gaze was frozen when I spied a silhouette in the corner of my room; a short, shadowy figure that did not belong. The longer I stared, the clearer the darkened image became. I was looking at what appeared to be a young child, a girl, hiding in the shadows, with arms outstretched towards the sky. Only a few moments had passed when the brilliant flash of lightning and earsplitting thunder struck just outside of my window. In that brief millisecond, I clearly saw a petite, blonde girl who vanished with the lightning.
There were many instances like this and others that led me to formulate a theory. Everything…literally everything is energy. Energy and matter is neither created nor destroyed, it merely changes form. With that being said, all energy consists of different vibrations and frequencies. If a person’s energy remains whole, and not disrupted or dispersed across the universe, at their time of death, they would then potentially have a new and unique frequency. There is a quote from Einstein that states (paraphrased) if you can tune in to the vibration of the reality you desire, reality has no choice but to become what you desire. If an entity, such as this child, could tune her frequency to those around her, her potential would be astounding. Tune into the electromagnetic frequency (EMF) of a cellphone or wi-fi signal, and travel anywhere that signal may be going. Likewise, tune into the EMF of an electrical storm and the entity would then become what I have coined as a “lightning rider”. Not only does this provoke thoughts of travel via lightning, but also energy acquirement and usage. If paranormal investigators believe a spirit may cause battery drainage muster energy to manifest…what incredible manifestations would be possible to an entity who could draw energy from a lightning strike? Another aspect would be if an entity had that ability, could it learn, or hone, the skill to be able to draw storm energy to direct lightning to do its bidding, or even draw storms into existence? As with most theories, this offers more questions than answers, but question worth contemplating.
The next time you are in the midst of a severe electrical storm, you have some thoughts to ponder. As for me and my team, we don’t need any more proof than what we have already experienced to know these theories are substantiated. Due to my own personal experiences, every time I experience a thunderstorm, or even the potential of one, I anticipate a visit. Those visits do not always come to fruition, but there is always a level of anxiety associated with the possibility.
