The weather can play tricks on us, can’t it? The rain is such a nourishing element and yet, for many, it can lower their vibration and bring on sadness. It can bring on moodiness and emotions without you even knowing what is triggering them. How do you get through a cloudy or even rainy day? How can you find the sun on a cloudy day?
The element of water is associated with our emotions. Being aware of this, you can use it to your advantage ~ especially on a cloudy or rainy day. Rather than wallow in your emotions, rather than allowing them to lead your day in dullness, sadness, embrace them. But, do it consciously. Embrace your emotions, feel them but understand that your emotions do not define who you are. Once you see your emotions through this lens, the rain will stop and the clouds will clear and you will be able to find the sun (metaphorically, of course!)
When the air is full of moisture ~ clouds, rain ~ embrace it to soothe your emotions. Use it to your advantage. Feel your emotions and then release them using water. You can go outside and feel the moisture on your skin and allow it to soothe whatever one’s do not serve you at the moment. You can visualize yourself using water to wash your emotions down the drain by imaging or actually doing this while you are washing your hands.
Then replace those clouds. Replace that emotion by finding the sun. Discover what it is~ in your heart ~ that fuels you and go find it. For me, it’s nature. I find sun in nature ~ the trees, the moss, the animals. You might find it in a work of art, a song, or a poem. You might find it in a conversation of connection with a friend. But, you must find it is that elevates your vibration.
The Super Fast Recipe for how to find sun on a cloudy day is this:
Feel the clouds and rain (your emotions), understand them but do not allow them to define you, soothe them and then elevate your spirit by doing something that you love.
Today, the rain is falling heavily. I soothed my desire to go curl up in the corner with a good book and escape my responsibilities when the song by the Temptations magically appeared in my head: I”ve got Sunshine on a cloudy day. I looked it up on youtube and saw these images set to the song. Now, my spirit is soaring!
What can you do to find sun on a cloudy day? How can you recognize your emotions, soothe them with water and move forward in spirit?
