It started a few summers ago, when I was about 13. I live in Texas.
Texas is most famous for our hot dry summers with NO rain.
Seriously. A few years ago, I almost forgot what rain was.
The first time I discovered I could control the wind was when I was standing in a snow cone stand line. The sun was scalding hot and there wasn't any shade. It was just another average day in central Texas. I began wishing for some wind and sure enough a huge burst of wind flew through. Then it disappeared. Something told me to just focus on the wind. So I did. Then light relieving breezes were steadily flying by. I cooled down and got my snow cone.
Now, this is how I learned to control the rain.
I am part Native American from my grandmother's side.
It was during the fall of 2010 and we were in the middle of a BAD drought.
I was in my parents room and jokingly, my dad brought up the "Rain Dance." It's a dance the Native Americans would do to call the rain. My mom played along and told me I should try it.
I laughed and went along with it. I started jumping around and making that sound with my mouth, just being silly.
The next day, the weather guy announced a surprise storm.
My parents and I just laughed. The "Rain Dance" had worked.
We were at the grocery store the next day when it started to pour, everyone in the store started to cheer and clap. It rained enough to fill the lake a little less than an inch. That might not sound like a lot but to us, it's a lot of rain.
Every time I did the "Rain Dance" it would rain.
Being that young I just thought it was cool and I would hope I would find my long lost twin, like from the Disney movie Twitches.
At school when it's raining and I have to leave the main building, I'll focus hard and it will stop or slow down to a very light drizzle. Then once I'm inside, it will continue to rain.
Whenever I want it to rain, which is a lot, it will. I can slow it down and even stop it. I can still control the wind but that power is a little more weak. I have more control over the rain. Sometimes I stare out my window and watch the trees and try to make the wind blow. Most of the time I can but I can't make it stop.
