“Rain. The cleansing tears of Mother Earth nourishing humanity.” Hameedat Muhammad, Writer

I’ve been enjoying the rain! I intend and imagine it moving to the areas where drought prevails and fires burn. I imagine the rain cleansing and healing Mother Earth and all life! Have you noticed how good the air and earth smells when it rains? I imagine the rain is cleansing each one of us. I feel my soul sigh. Today, I realize that I love myself enough to enjoy each drop of rain nourishing and cleansing the earth, my garden, and me! I imagine each one of my plants and trees soaking in the healing properties of the rain. It feels like each one is wrapped in a blanket of love! My soul is happy and so am I!

Miya Yamanouchi, Author, counselor, and therapist has said that “Our soul is like a soft and gentle flower, it needs to be nurtured, cared for, tended to, with sufficient sunlight, fresh air and freedom to bloom into its most precious and beautiful form. This my friend is self-love.” I love this imagery. I believe that our soul is eternal and has many adventurous experiences. Why not consciously nurture and care for it in the most beautiful ways? Why not practice cleansing negative thoughts, beliefs, and judgments as a way to love ourselves? Why not believe that we are unique and beautiful gifts created by God/Goddess/All That Is, Source? Why not nurture and love ourselves in ways that soul and each one of us bloom into our most precious and beautiful forms?

What in your life are you willing to change in order to nurture and love yourself more? What in your life are you willing to change in order to live your best life possible? Hmmm. Imagine that you’re a master gardener caring for your beautiful soul. Even though soul doesn’t have a physical presence, imagine it housed within you in your inner garden. What thoughts, beliefs, habits, and perceptions do you want to plant and nurture here? What do you want to weed out and remove? It’s up to you! Imagine your inner garden, where soul resides, flourishing with sufficient sunlight, rain, nutrients, and fresh air. All of the ingredients for it to thrive and bloom! Imagine how beautiful it is.

Is it possible to love yourself enough to nurture your soul so it thrives? Of course it is if you are willing to take a few moments to be still. A few moments to let go of worrying about the future or resenting something in the past. A few moments to be present. Thich Nhat Hanh, Vietnamese Buddhist monk has said, “When we are mindful, deeply in touch with the present moment, our understanding of what is going on deepens, and we begin to be filled with acceptance, joy, peace and love.” Are you ready?
