Across cultures and throughout history, the rainbow has imparted feelings of awe, happiness and otherworldliness to its observers. While it has long been a symbol of hope, social change, pride and peace, its sweet profusion of colours which stretches endlessly through the sky seems to denote the simple essence of joy.
In the midst of all of our responsibilities, tasks and life admin, the rainbow is a candy-coated reminder to enjoy the ride. Don‘t try to slow things down! Allow the energy of the universe to flow through you, bringing you closer to your desires. Everything is moving so fast right now, much faster than it did before; it‘s floating uncontrollably, levitating, traveling through the air! Energy of the highest velocity, euphoria in its most exalted sense.
A symbol of sexual liberation, a passage for Iris, a messenger between heaven and Earth, Gods and humanity. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet; the seven chakras, from root to crown, the regenerative spiritual person, who has lived out the path of enlightenment! The glowing band honours everything endless; it embodies abundance of happiness and joy!
Myths and physics flow together. We strive for the gold at the end, not discouraged by the fact that the rainbow isn‘t a bow but a circle. Although science can now explain what it historically couldn‘t, the rainbow is an optical illusion, a reflection of the sun seen through thousands of raindrops. It can‘t be solely a meteorological phenomenon; the multicoloured arc in the sky has a divine touch to it! Signifying the end of hard times, it resonates with something deep inside us. Its light stands for a promise of hope and fun and enlightenment that is not only for us to absorb but also to spread and pass on to others. Instead of mourning the fact that there is no end of the rainbow, let‘s cherish and celebrate its endless potential. Just as the rainbow is endless so can the energy it activates and channels through us be!
