A description of the experience
From an interview with Director Nick Polizzi on New Film ‘The Sacred Science,’ Energy Healing and his Run-In with a Lightning Bolt - by Nick Meyer October 15, 2013 AltHealthWORKS
AHW: How did you first find out about “alternative” medicine and also Amazon healing medicine and traditions? -
NP: I was hit by lightning at age 16. So that pretty much changed the way I related to the world. I was pretty normal but always kind of had an excitement about nature. But I was a normal high school kid, playing basketball in the driveway in a rainstorm when it happened. After that I was a lot more sensitive to new energies, and sensitive to things I couldn’t quite understand and it scared the cap out of me to be honest.
So, I didn’t have to be talked into alternative medicine. When I found it, I was relieved that people were doing this and using all these methods to put a name on things I was experiencing and didn’t have a name for. That’s how I was initiated into alternative medicine.
It literally kind of hit me, it was almost like a life raft for me. It made me realize that I wasn’t alone..................
Nick Ortner [a high school friend and a promoter of tapping and EFT] really helped me a lot when I was going through a lot of tough times [as a result of this]. I was trying to understand what was going on; I was having out-of-body experiences and a lot of unintended psychic sort-of phenomena were taking place. He was a really gifted healer and I was lucky to have him as a best friend.
