"Be a rainbow in someone else's cloud" Maya Angelou
I recently bought a rainbow maker.
I had one years ago, but after it broke and I took it down, I forgot all about it and how happy it made me.
As I was spring cleaning, I found the parts for the broken one that used to hang in my window- so I decided to go on Amazon and order a new one!
I put it high up on the southwest facing window looking out towards the Ansonia building- one of the most famous buildings in Manhattan filled with history and elegance. I have previously visited one of the apartments and it was like being in an old world ballroom.
Rainbows get you to expand your thoughts, to think bigger, and to stretch the universe for you in a rainbow of colors. They're so rare, but when you see one, it's sort of like magic that appears before your eyes, and you can't help but stop in your tracks. You don't want them to pass you by. They're made when light is refracted at just the right angle that the electromagnetic spectrum is displayed in all of it's different wavelengths.
I've recently caught a few of them- one on a highway! And I was trying desperately to capture a picture of it, but pictures never quite do it justice.
Just the other day, I was walking, and as I looked up, there was a spot of a rainbow. Immediately I felt like my angels were above. It's a sign. It's light. It's magic. It makes you wonder what's coming next. What can I create? What do I want?
Rainbows symbolize following our heart's desire and purpose. Rainbows remind us to hold onto hope, follow our dreams to our pot of gold, and believe beyond a shadow of a doubt that blessings are open to us.
The funny thing about rainbows is that they come after a storm, it's the light at the end of the tunnel. In order to reach the rainbow, you have to make it through the storm... and even then they aren't always guaranteed. But, the colors of the rainbow are constantly around us. These vibrant colors give you the light and projection to hope for more. To know that this too shall pass. And to remind you of all the storms you have endured this far and just how strong you are.
How can you be a rainbow for someone else?
