A Matter of Bounty in Native American Culture
North American Natives have a life philosophy based in nature, and believe that every object, even inanimate ones, have a soul, and regard everything in nature as sacred. Naturally, in a culture that is so interwined with nature, rain is considered as a miracle. Life giving rain drops symbolize abundance, prosperity, and happiness.
It is a Matter of…
Thinking that rain, in general, is a good thing, if you disregard a few of its bad characteristics, we have come up with a special rain prayer: Let the good things in life come down on you like rain; in case it rains, please let it come down without making the skies too grey, without getting everything too wet, and without slowing down traffic or too many splashes. Amen.
With its effect of wishing bountiful blessings and happiness, this is the perfect gift for when you want to say ‘Good luck’, as a way of saying ‘Thank you’ and giving your best wishes to those who have been kind to you in the past, or when you want to wish bountiful blessings to your family members. When you think of a “housewarming gift, new job gift, good luck gift, friendship gift, wedding gift, anniversary gift, birthday gift” this is the first thing that comes to mind.
