Ok so here’s what happened…
A huge storm rolled through my town and knocked out the power for the whole town for almost a whole week. Every street but mine and knocked out cellphone towers for all areas but mine. Blew out windows and roofs off of buildings. My property was fine but…
Lightening did strike a tree by the house! I collected the wood under the moonlight got branches and bark which I will be making super powerful wands out of and a bunch of stuff when I figure out what I want to do with it. The charred pieces from the strike I chunked off for spell and ritual ingredients.

Lightning struck wood is a highly sought after and powerful curio within Hoodoo and Native American traditions. With an estimated 25% of cloud to ground lightning strikes hitting earth bound objects (rocks, buildings, people, trees…etc.) and not all trees can be easily harvested, lightning struck wood is a rare find.
Fun fact! A bolt of lightning could be up to 1 billion volts.
It can be added to any work to increase its power. It is particularly good for commanding spells, sex spells, and spells of destruction, which draw on its fire energy to destroy. Fire also has a dual nature to transform; hence its ability to be used in positive works as well.
Suggested Uses (but not limited to): Add to any mojo bag or gris gris to amplify its potency. Keep a piece on your altar for power and protection. Pulverize and add to sachet powders to boost their effectiveness. Add to floor washes to increase their cleansing power. Burn along with cedar for a powerful cleansing and blessing incense, and to drive negative energies away.
They say the odds of an air to ground lightning strike are comparable to winning the lottery. Out of billions of trees only a couple thousand get struck by lightening and the ones that do which are accessable are only 15%. This is why not only does it carry insane luck and probability bending power but is such a rare and sought after commodity in the magickal community.
