Have you ever felt like when one bad thing happens it creates a domino effect and suddenly the world is crashing down on you? Well, after a technological issue tampered with our topic for today’s episode, we have decided to talk about why we think ‘when it rains it pours.’ We delve into whether a series of bad events happens because of coincidence, mercury being in retrograde, or because we become more sensitive to negativity and therefore attract it. Next, we discuss why we are the center of our own universes and share some of our own ‘when it rains it pours’ stories. We also discuss how people respond to pain, grief, or unfortunate events and why sometimes laughter really is the best medicine before looking at why we associate negativity with more negativity. We then talk about why experiencing hardship makes joy much more powerful. Finally, we bring up the quiet inner voice that is a guiding light in our lives and discuss how imperative it is to give affirmation to that voice as well as ways to help children learn to trust it. Tune in to Inner Archeology to figure out why when it rains it pours!
