We often think of rain as dreary or perhaps sad. Rain is quite the opposite. It give us a chance for inner reflection, it asks us to slow down and take our time. The rain attempts to wash away the layers of ourselves that are no longer serving us and gives them a pathway into the ground as food for the hungry soil. Rain clarifies who we are and who we wish to be when the sun finally shines again. Perhaps the rain makes us feel down because we are experiencing a small death. The death of a layer of ourselves that we were once tied to. We can let go of these layers with gratitude if we really feel it.
Take advantage of rainy days. Write in your journal, try colouring pictures with small children, put on good music and dance indoors, or phone a good friend. Use these "rainflection" days to open yourself more fully.
