At times we all need help letting go of preconceived notions, judgments, and old beliefs that no longer serve us. To be able to accept new ideas and beliefs we first have to clear out the old. Water was often used as a cleansing source in tribal times to release the old and bring in the new. One technique to accomplish this was walking in the rain by running water. Old ideas and beliefs were carried away by the running water and fresh new ideas were brought in from above through the rain. If you can find a source of running water and happen to find it raining, you can do this just as it was done in older times by getting out in nature. More than likely though, you don't have the luxury of going for a walk by a running stream at just the time it is raining with your busy schedule, or you live in an area that doesn't get much rain, or live in a city without access to a running river or stream, or are going through drought conditions or have other reasons that don't make this possible for you. In this case you can turn to your shower. Fresh water from above and running water below and chances are you already work a shower into your day.
Whichever way you choose, as you walk by or stand in the running water, feel your old beliefs, ideas and worries falling away from you and being carried off with the flowing water. As you stand in your water source from above, feel the brightness and refreshment of newness coming to you - new ideas, new will to work, new expressions of creativity and new feelings of all kinds. Taking this time to refresh yourself is a huge relief to your normal daily routines. It can bring us to consciousness by giving us a break from mechanical life and reactions and open the way for magic to enter. Since any act done with intention is an act of magic, this online magic tip gives you a way to incorporate a little magic into something you already do every day that will raise your level of consciousness. And that is Magic!!
