Making Rain

The Dallas/Austin Drive and RAIN


Shabari and I flew in to Georgia from Australia and after less than a week of settling in at Bird’s Nest, planting gardens and preparing for the Weston A. Price convention we drove out to Dallas. The Weston A. Price convention was awesome with something like 1,500 attendees and luminaries like Jerry Brunetti and Michael Schmidt—just to mention two—presenting.

Jerry, a livestock nutritionist and farm advisor, healed himself from advanced type B lymphoma with nutrition, while Michael, a gentle and perceptive biodynamic dairy farmer of immense dedication has spearheaded the raw milk movement in Canada at the pointy end of government suppression. In particular, Dr. Mercola was a vibrant presence that resonated with me, as he related his path to learning was paved—like my own—by learning how to learn. What an awesome presence and presentation! To get a better taste of what went on there at the Dallas Sheraton—the largest convention hotel in Texas and largest Sheraton in the world—you’ll probably have to surf the internet.

However, Shabari and I were concerned about the drought that had afflicted Texas—particularly since January 2011, but also over the last few years—and she made contact with Steve Diver, Gary Freeborg, Coleman Kelly, Bill McCrainy and others she knew or knew of that were involved with biodynamic agriculture in the Austin area where they hadn’t had a decent rain event in eleven months and were in what looked like a historical dry cycle.

For whatever reasons, Shabari and I have independently studied weather and rain cycles from a wide range of similar viewpoints and we were aware that sequential application of the biodynamic preparations has a history of breaking droughts and bringing into the areas where these preparations are applied whatever is needed for life to thrive. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways. So in the Austin area we visited farms where I set up a couple of field broadcasters to broadcast preparation patterns. We also had classes at the Casa de Luz where I described what was happening with biodynamics and biodynamic preparations and got some things going with applications of biodynamic preparations in a variety of locations. Steve Diver and Bill McCrainy were especially helpful in getting stirring and spraying of BD preps going on the ground in a couple different locations, and Seaton Collard took on radionic applications of the sequential sprays as well. So far the result has been, you guessed it, rain within 24 hours of the first application for the greater Austin area.

There’s a lot more to the story, of course. It’s all about life forces and MODERATE rain rather than devastating rain, because when things are healthy is when life forces are cooking and balanced and rain occurs in CYCLES so you don’t get either too much or too little. In actual fact it is easier to get tired of too much rain as compared to too little. It’s easier to survive a drought than a flood, as long as neither one is too extreme. This sequential spray procedure, developed chiefly by Hugh Courtney (Josephine Porter Institute of Applied Biodynamics) with key input from Harvey Lisle and support by yours truly, Hugh Lovel, makes that happen in an organic, life supporting way. If you want to know more, get involved with sequential spraying of the biodynamic preparations and study what happens. It undoubtedly will help to explore our website and take courses, download content, but above all get involved with applying the preparations. There’s a lot of information out there to corroborate what’s on our website and by all means do wider searches.
