Did you ever notice how good you feel when you see a rainbow? I’ve read several times that a rainbow can be a sign of an angel or of a loved one that has passed. It is considered by many to be a sign of good luck because at the end of the rainbow, is where a leprechaun’s gold is hidden. In the bible, it says that a rainbow is a sign that God will not flood the earth again to remove all life.
If you Google ‘rainbow’ and read the definition in Wikipedia, it says that a rainbow is a meteorological phenomenon that is caused by reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky. It takes the form of a multicolored circular arc. Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun. A rainbow an optical illusion caused by any water droplets viewed from a certain angle relative to a light source.
Several colors appear in a rainbow and most noticeably red, green, blue, yellow, and sometimes violet. I’ve learned in my classes that colors have different healing energies. Seeing these colors together generates a warm peaceful feeling inside.
Rainbows can also appear from a glass prism or from bubbles. During my walks in the winter, I see thousands of tiny rainbows glistening in the snow when the sun is out. I bought a cut crystal sphere prism from the bookstore and hung it in the basement window that faces east. At different times during the year, depending on the different angles with the sun, I find rainbows on the wall, or on the floor, and they give me a good feeling. Once I saw that the sun was hitting the glass sphere and I found an angle where I partially closed my eyes to see the color rays coming from the prism to my eyes. It was like meditating with a candle, but the rays were in color. By moving just a bit, the color would change. At first I saw blue, then red, and then green. The blue was a beautiful dark blue, the red was a brilliant red, and the green was a magnificent emerald green. The hues of these colors were the most spectacular that I had ever seen. And then, I saw the most exquisite purple that came pouring out. I felt truly in the presence of something sacred. I realized that these colors are natural, and are from God, just like sunsets that give us great serenity.
So when you see a rainbow, whether it’s in the sky after a rainstorm, or from a glass prism, and you feel the positive energy, know that it’s from Spirit or from a loved one, letting you know that everything is all right.
