    All rain comes from a combination of two elements: moisture in the air – usually in the form of clouds – and air currents flowing through it. As the wet air rises in a cloud, the air cools and the water in it turns into tiny raindrops.

    This is exactly what happens when you see your spirit on a cold evening. The change in temperature from warm to cool causes water droplets to form in your air.

    In the cloud, this little rain is very bright and floating as the rising wind pushes them away. But the higher they go, the bigger they get. Eventually, they survived so much that they fell on Earth like rain.
