Cleansing Nature

The next rainy day, imagine the rain washing away and cleansing your emotions. There are times when we might feel the need to wash away all of our troubles and bring brightness into our lives. Since perhaps the most cleansing substance on this earth is water, we can think of the joy rain brings as an energetic bath, rejuvenating our minds, bodies and souls. Just spend a few moments every time it rains to become aware of the healing powers of water.  As we do this we will find that the more we appreciate nature’s gift to us in the form of rain, the more we can see that a gentle rain as a strong reflective tool that has the ability to cleanse our entire self.

The next time it rains try and experience the rain with all of your senses, allowing yourself to truly understand how important each and every drop of water is. Look outside and notice how each individual raindrop seems to come down in a continual stream, consider how it takes many small accomplishments to create the whole of your existence, for nothing exists in isolation. Then you might wish to focus your attention on the sounds of the rainfall, letting the sounds of drops penetrate into the innermost recesses of yourself. Listening in this way may bring you a greater sense of connection with nature and the world around you, knowing that the sounds you hear are a fundamental part of not just the physical nourishment you require but can also nourish your spirit as well.

Intentionally using our senses to feel nature’s healing energy as it comes to us in the form of rain is an act of internal cleansing. Just as the rain physically washes over the earth and rinses out impurities and imperfections, it may also bathe our spirit in the delight that comes from knowing that we are in fact one with the world around us.
