How Life is Like a Rainbow🌈

The Rainbow Visualization🌈

“Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun and the rain to make its colors appear.” ~ Unknown

I have a confession to make. Yes, I get down, I get sad, I get upset too. I’m no saint, nor do I want to be one. I’m human and accept my emotions as they flow through me. But I also know how to guide myself out of the sadness and into the light.

People often think that just because I am a therapist, I must always know what to do to to stay happy and positive. I do Know, but the truth is, I have had to navigate through life understanding myself too. Understanding what works for me, what triggers me, what helps me calm down.

Below is one such beautiful visualization, which works for me. It has helped me to bring myself to a calm space, no matter how tumultous my external situations have been.

Whenever I’m down and nothing seems right, I close my eyes and visualize myself flying high above the clouds, to a place where magic still exists. To a place where love is all that is needed to sustain your heart. In those clouds as I glide, all is beautiful, all is perfect, all is possible.

In that moment of flight, my soul feels bliss.

For one moment close your eyes and fly there with me. Leave the world, the limitations, the material possessions, leave everything and Feel the bliss. Take a deep breath and soak it all in.

I constantly want to live somewhere over that rainbow, but alas, the real world beckons.

When we can each embody the weightlessness, freedom and bliss of our being(like we did in the clouds), we truly can live a magical, colorful, rainbow like life. Where only peace, love, beauty, serenity and happiness reside.

🌈This is how we can become the magical rainbow. It begins with YOU!🌈

This week, I leave you also with the lullaby that soothes my heart & soul.

Yes, it is indeed, the beautiful~ Somewhere Over The Rainbow originally written by E.Y. Harburg for the movie Wizard of Oz:

When all the world is a hopeless jumble
And the raindrops tumble all around,
Heaven opens a magic lane
When all the clouds darken up the skyway,
There’s a rainbow highway to be found
Leading from your window pane
To a place behind the sun,
Just a step beyond the rain

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There’s a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That’s where you’ll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh why can’t I?

If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can’t I?

And if you would love to listen to the above poem, here it is in its best form 🤗💗🌈
