Just a brief update, on two of my previous posts. Let me start of with a quote, which is very central to my understanding of what this is about:
Gratitude in advance is the most powerful creative force in the universe. (N.D. Walsh)
Some time ago I posted two stories about ‘calling the rain’ in Namibia, “Waiting for rain” and “Secret ingredients for making rain“. Namibia has been really dry and many people were/are afraid that this will be a year of a disastrous drought…. (you can read more of my thoughts about this at ‘Where are the clouds?‘).
Now, finally the rain has come to Namibia!!! Whoohoo…!!!
Besides being really happy about this news, I had to smile to myself, as it just proved to me, that the sending out positive intentions with the rainmakers is really working.
We just have to be patient and keep on believing. Even if it takes a bit longer. Trusting that everything is the way it should be and it is good. Just wait without fear, knowing that everything that is is a blessing. Our prayers will be heard, our needs will be taken care of! So count your blessings (really do) and praise each one of them.
Over the past few months I have made several different ‘rainmakers’ to remind myself to keep on believing in the rain and that it will come, no matter how bleak the forecast looked or how many people exclaimed their fear and worries. Each time I make one, I consciously imagine the rain falling and saying thank you to the universe that it has always provided me with everything I needed.
It does not need to be an elaborate artwork, Sometimes I even think the easier they come and the more fun they are, the better. It makes it easier to feel joy and gratitude in my heart. And I think that helps to focus the energy and my desire for rain and not on getting a ‘perfect’ piece of art out there.
Here are some of my rainmakers:

After the first good rains we all hope and pray that it will keep on raining, till we have enough to overcome the next dry season.
Inspiration to others and their contribution
Some friends have liked my rainmaker idea so much, that they have decided to make their own rainmakers and that surely played a big role and contributed to making it rain 😉 . Here is an photo from a rainmaker, which my brother’s girlfriend Amanda has made:
How cool is that?
It feels great that my ideas and work keeps on inspiring others, and they come up with their own unique and beautiful artworks or rituals.
Thank you, dear universe, for all your blessings and sending rain our way! By the way, I am still eagerly awaiting spring/summer over here in Berlin… 😉 – but I am sure you have already made a plan for that too! 🙂
Haha. We just spend half a week at Etosha. On the day we left it started raining. I was really sorry for all the people that were driving around trying to find animals. We went to Sossouvlei also and I would have loved to see it filled with water. I got a couple good shots without water anyway! 🙂 You might want to check out my sand dunes! 🙂 Happy Blogging!
Good that you saw Etosha before the rain, I heard the roads were quiet a mess after the rains. Your dune pics of Sossus are great, thank you for sharing them. Hope you enjoy the rest of your stay in Namibia! 🙂 Happy blogging and traveling to you!
Wonderful! Yes, gratitude in advance is the spirit. i am very grateful that it is spring in Germany, and that Namibia gets more rain :-). big hug my shaman friend xxx
