The sound of the pouring rain – it’s loud and it’s upsetting, I have to admit.
But after a warm bubble bath, dressed in my winter woollies, I took the dog outside and sat myself on the patio of our house. I sat there wanting to sit in silence for even a minute. I even closed my eyes, trying to get the sound of the heavy rain immerse my body. They say the sound of rain is calming but I find myself getting agitated – anxiety filling my every void.
Being outside is nice, but being outside when the rain is spraying cold water and wind into my face brings me down.
Yesterday was summery warm and let’s me shine fully, today it’s wintery cold. My mind imagining the warming presence of a warm cup of cacao. The more I visualised this warm drink, I smiled thinking that I kinda don’t want to waste this cold day. I stepped back inside and made a warm mug of cacao and as I sipped on this warm drink, the vibe around me flooded not with pouring rain and puddles but remembering not to let the cold day and rain upset me. The vibrations of sipping this warm cacao let’s me understand how warm drinks bring back my smile through the cold rainy day.
Holding my warm mug, I sat there in silence, listening to the heavens open up and pour out its rain. My mug in my hand and the aroma of the cacao filling my senses and cells full to the brim with love for life. That pouring rain above my head and the cold wind blowing across my face actually felt in the distance. The agitation and anxiety was being washed away.
The rain, it’s still pouring down and for a moment it looks like it’s starting to show signs of easing. But with this warm mug of cacao, I am sipping, I feel comforted to stay out here a bit longer hearing the rain not as a negative but as a positive energy in life.
I hope wherever you are, you are able to find the vibration to immerse yourself into a most beautiful day.
