I suppose you mean the strikes, and I would suggest use a compositing program such as after effects with advanced lightning...or fusion.

Tie a key on the end of a string of a kite, and tie the other end to your computer. Wait for a stormy night. And when the wind is just right, send the kite into the night sky.
Not really, but that's the way you do it .
Using nulls as your key to attract/ tie the lightning to. Use a rapid texture displacement on a poly chain (the string). Add some glow. Experiment keeping quick motions in short frame intervals.
