As I write this It's raining. And I like that. I've excitedly shared photos of it raining on social media in the past. What is it about the rain that is just so...nice? This rainy morning has inspired me to explore this a little.
For starters it's cleansing. So much water falling from the sky washes the energy field of our immediate environment. Our homes, our roads, our parks, our towns are washed with the healing power of water. This is like an aura bath. It's the same as when you shower to clean off the busyness of your day. We feel renewed when we are bathed in water. It carries away the debris from our energy field. The rain brings a cleaner vibe to our environment.
Next, it sounds so nice! Pitter patter, pitter patter in a soothing, steady rhythm; or the louder, more exciting drumming of heavier rain. The consistent sound of rain is excellent for concentration. This makes it ideal for writing, reading, journaling and meditating. And did you know, it is also a sound that helps those of us with insomnia. Some people even use pre recorded rain music to help them go to sleep.
Rain also gives us permission to be indoors. It can be a time to snuggle and cosy up, cook or to laze with your kids and pets.
Movies feel better when it's raining. I find I relax easier when the soothing water is coming down from the sky. I even enjoy a walk in the rain, it cleanses my energy field too.
And here is something else, when we are becoming weary of rain going on for too many days we become renewed in our gratitude for the blue sky, the sun and being in amongst our natural environment.
Let's embrace the healing vibe of the lovely rain.
wishing you rain gratitude
Ps Special rain love to my son Rain who also really likes his namesake.
