Amazing Strikes Of Lightning Captured On Camera (PHOTOS)

The stress and strain of constantly being connected can sometimes take your life -- and your well-being -- off course. GPS For The Soul can help you find your way back to balance.

GPS Guides are our way of showing you what has relieved others' stress in the hopes that you will be able to identify solutions that work for you. We all have de-stressing "secret weapons" that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, songs that bring us back to our heart, quotes or poems that create a feeling of harmony, or meditative exercises that help us find a sense of silence and calm. We encourage you to look at the GPS Guide below, visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and tranquility.

Lightning is incredibly beautiful, and also one of the most deadly of natural phenomena. Lightning is generated in electrically charged storm systems, but precisely how this process works remains somewhat of a mystery -- proof that science can be fantastically elusive. Sometimes when we are in a slump, something seemingly inconsequential can energize us, giving us that extra energy to push onwards, drive ourselves forward. Check out the slideshow below of lightning striking, and it may just inspire an extra kick of energy within you.
