From time to time, we all experience spiritual drought.  These are times when we can't access our higher selves, our spiritual guardians or our gods.  They are the times when the lessons seem to have stopped coming and we are left thirsty and wilting.

That's were I am right now.  I'm thirsty and frustrated.  My connection to my spiritual life is thin and strained, and even meditation is a frustrating, unsatisfying experience.  From past brushes with this feeling, I know that it will end, eventually.  I need to continue to be available spiritually, and I need to be kind to myself.  One day, the rain will fall, and I won't be thirsty anymore.  The energies and life lessons that are in progress right now will change and I will see that this isn't as bad a patch as it seemed.

Of course, knowing and feeling are two very different things.  I'm unhappy and uncomfortable with where I'm at, but I know that it will go away.  I'm impatient, and worse, I'm frustrated.  Frustration seems to block out all of the rational and loving energies that usually can be found in my life.  It makes me want to lash out, and do something to speed this all up.  I know that I can't change the world over night, and so I sit here, trying to both acknowledge my negativity and rid myself of it.
