If you’d like a little help navigating all the “swirling” around that’s in the air in our world right now, you’re not alone. So I thought I’d share with you this beautiful story of The Rainmaker.
I feel as with so much of the indigenous wisdom teachings, we can take a lot of comfort as well as direction from these teachings which have been passed on from generation to generation – and for good reason!
The Story of The Rainmaker
There has been a long-running drought and the natives are suffering badly from it. They hear of a man called “The Rainmaker” and search him out, and finally found him. They brought him to their village and he agreed to help. He asked to be left alone for three days. After three days, it began to rain. The drought condition ended and the natives wanted to know how he did it and why it took him three days. He said, “There was a lot of chaos in the environment (a lot of fear). I had to heal and balance that within myself, and once I did, I could talk to the sky and ask for rain, and the rain came.”
What do you feel the lesson is?
I suggest, that in order for us to be able to be Co-Creators with Nature, we have to be aware of and then release the blocks, limitations, misbeliefs and conflicts within ourselves and our environment first. For it is these very limitations that “stop the rain from coming”.
Our world, THE world, our life, our home and our SELVES are all mirroring us back to us.
As the famous Hermetic Principle: As above, so below. So below, as above.
*Just to be clear, I’m not saying this is easy to do. In fact it’s super humbling and hard! A habit of looking WITHIN FIRST most likely needs to be cultivated, but at the end of the day, it is the essence of a true spiritual practice.
So my friend, I suggest you learn to be in the middle of ‘the storm’ and not get swept away by the current and power of the duality that’s all around and clean up your inside before turning to the outside. 🙂
I’m with you on this journey…..
