AFTER ALL, THE WEATHER HONORS US

 storm

Do you watch the weather reports on TV?  I do.  Bad habit, I guess, but I got into this habit when I took care of horses and had to decide whether or not it was OK for them to go outside for the day.

Anyway, I’ve noticed that, unless there is a serious drought and fire danger, the weather forecasters always speak negatively about rain.  Now, folks, without rain, grass and trees and flowers and foods do not grow.  And they need rain on a regular basis, not just once a week or once a month.

Do you eat or drink just once a week or once a month?  No, you eat every day and you drink something every day.  

Well, please don’t be surprised to hear that plants need nourishment on a regular basis.  They don’t do well with 3 inches of rain one day and then none for 2 weeks.

So what does the attitude of the weather forecaster have to do with this? 

Actually, this is about ALL of us.  When we put out the energy and thought that rain is an annoyance and we really don’t like it, we create imbalances in the weather.  We make it more difficult for the Earth to be in balance.  We interfere in the work of the Nature Spirits and Elementals who jobs it is to care for, nurture, and protect all life on Earth.

Have you ever noticed that some storms are filled with anger?  strom_angryHave you ever noticed how some storms are gentle and filled with love?  Have you ever shared in the joy of the wind as it dances through the trees?  Have you ever wanted to stand naked in a soft rain and feel it’s cleansing and nurturing energy over your entire body?

Storms serve many purposes in Nature.  We must remember that we are part of Nature.  What we are feeling can create a storm – a hurricane – a healing gentle rain.  Storms often carry human emotion because we are such powerful creators that the emotional energy of our consciousness becomes part of the ecological system and affects everything.

So it’s time to stop complaining about the weather and start respecting our role in creating it.  It’s time to take responsibility. 

It’s also time to open conversations with the Nature Spirits.  They work together, and we work with them consciously or unconsciously.  Why not do so consciously?  When we ask for and create a partnership, we are taking back our power and using it to create harmony.  Isn’t that what you’d like to experience in your life?

Namaste,
