When water is present, life can be possible. Water is an essential part of all living things and we thrive in its presence. When I think of the beautiful country of Ireland, I think of how green and lush it is because of its high source of rainfall. Even from space, Ireland seems to glow from its greenness. This is the power of water to give life and to renew us. Rainfall has the power to cleanse the Earth and give the energy for vegetation to expand and flourish. During this time of year, rainfall increases because of the energy that is inherent in the cosmos. It is a time of renewal and purification. This week, this energy of renewal and purification is assisting us in growing into our next level. We, like the plants of the earth, are compelled to grow and change. We are energized and rinsed clean. It is a time where we can begin a new life; fresh with dew and washed away of the past. We are made green and alive; ready for the life and year ahead.
