|August 2011 - rain pelting on the driveway|
It's still raining off and on and this morning and is meant to throughout the day with the possibility of more thunderstorms to come. I was commenting to a friend last night that I prefer listening to the rain in the dark where I cannot see it but can only hear it's music and it's beauty. I now know that I much prefer to have my thunder and lightning where I can see them...and prepare!
So today will be a day of reflection and not needing to be outdoors. The rain has cleared the air both outside and within my "self" and I always feel that ease when the weather has changed and lifted the oppressive heat.

Energy seems to guide my life...I believe it guides everyone. Why do we make the choices we do or gravitate towards some people and not others? Why did my hand land on this lovely little jar that is 3 1/2" high? Oh true, I loved the shape and I loved the lid. But my hand reached out to it before my eyes had properly taken it in. I don't know who owned this jar, who touched it, held it, used whatever was inside. But my energy flowed to where it was, higher on a shelf than I could reach. I needed to manoeuvre my way inside the booth and stretch to reach it. So often I don't bother when something is out of my immediate reach...but I did with this. And then I put it back! I looked at the price tag and decided that it was a little more than I wanted to pay. But I didn't stop thinking about it as I walked through the rest of the store. As I reached the cash register with a small plate in my hand, I asked the proprietor to wait one moment and I hurried back to the bottle, picked it up with ease and no manoeuvring and made sure that it came home with me.
Notice the energy around you. Do you act on what you feel?
