The Art of Cloud Reading


Few people know about cloud reading. It is left to the shamans and wisdom keepers; the loners and the misfits, and those that are aware of other realities. It is something that cannot be taught but only intuited. There is little difference between intuition and imagination. Einstein once said: “Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.” And, “The man who has no imagination has no wings.” (Muhammad Ali)


Cloud reading requires a free imagination. Clouds have messages if we care to understand and interpret them. You can also get answers to questions from clouds and sometimes - detailed explanations. This is not a manual for cloud reading but only a reference so you can teach yourself.


From the movie: ‘The Sorceress’s Apprentice’. “The first step is to clear your mind.” Much easier said than done. How about just – relax your mind. Perceive the clouds and understand that they are living beings and that have understanding, memories, and knowledge. Clouds are a reflection of the workings of your own sub-conscious.


What can be seen in clouds? There in lies the key – anything and everything. Faces, bodies, animals, spaceships and buildings, letters and numbers, colors and textures. What can be felt in clouds? Emotions and sensations, attitudes and desires. What can you hear from clouds? The wind and music, voices, singing and sirens, sighs and sages.

“Hey you, get off of my cloud” (The Stones) Two people standing side by side can look at the same cloud and have different interpretations.


We are able to touch the clouds with our minds and they respond. They teach us about families and friends, our greater collective, and ourselves. They can teach us about the universe and beyond. They can carry our burdens and can heal us. Please do not under-estimate the power of clouds. They are not just water vapor carried by the wind. They are our higher mind waiting to be perceived.
