Gentle rain

A few years ago I bought a shower head that pours out a gentle stream of water. When I turn it on and close my eyes, I feel a tender rain washing over me. It is designed so that if feels that way. Over the last few months, though, it has been spouting off a forceful gush of water that can be painful at times. I took a look at it and noticed that many of holes are clogged. The ones that are (somewhat) clear, are strenuously pushing water out and hurting my skin in the process. It didn't become that way overnight.

I think this happens to most of us overtime and, like my shower head, we need to take a look at what is clogging us. The effects of these small obstructions can be hurtful. We may not realize how strongly and inconsiderate we are being with others. We may not realize that we hurt ourselves as well because we stop the flow.

What can interfere with our flow is anger, resentment, pride, ego trips, a sense of righteousness, unwillingness, selfish wants, a sense of entitlement, fear, stress, jealousy, self-condemnation, control, attachment, greed, insincerity, insecurity and so on. When we get to this point, we irritate and create friction. To get back to our gentle nature, we need to let go, embrace humility and serve. This does not mean that we value ourselves any less. This means that we are on purpose. Our thoughts become aligned with Spirit and we flow in goodness.

Today is a good day to flow gently, for us and for those around us. When we flow gently we serve, we love, we fulfill our intentions in reciprocity. We are telling the Universe that we are willing to be a channel of blessings, prosperity, kindness, friendship, love, success, joy, happiness and all good things. In being a current, we receive that which we offer. Today is a good day to gently rain...
