Used to be I wanted the moon and the stars. Now I’m content to let them stay in the heavens, and gaze upon them from a distance. I’ve come down to earth. To all the colors I’ve always loved. For now I see them in the heavens, albeit closer to earth, reflecting earth colors.
This is the bubble ring I bought on the street in Brooklyn 17 years ago. I’ve worn it and put it away, and worn it and put it away again. But lately, I’ve wanted to wear it everyday. No doubt it’s been partly because of my involvement with Rainbow Light Foundation and the many tools and services they offer in the Soul Sciences for raising consciousness and healing and meditation.
But lately, the last month or so, I’ve been wearing it on my right hand – which happens to be my right hand, ring finger – all the time. And during this time, during the last three weeks of this month or so of time, something has come full circle. A piece that I left behind decades ago, has found me again. After I had stopped looking.
Now, the rainbow we see in the sky is only ever a half circle, right? But if we stretch and stretch and stretch our vision, and follow the colors (as I have done as a painter) we can follow the rainbow…and be in the fullness of the bow that is tied, at last. A ring of light.
The experience I’ve been having since late August, early September, seems magical to me. And yet it is based in solid physical matter, i.e., true life experiences, just as the rainbow itself can be explained by the physical sciences. And yet, and yet… there is this other part of me that knows something beyond the moon and beyond the stars. Which enables me to say, 17 years ago I bought a bubble ring on the street for five dollars. And now I know that by putting it on my finger, I was marrying (forming a sacred union) with a rainbow. And we live in a bubble of light.
I am, of course speaking of life in the Fourth Dimension, which I’ve explored in depth through paintings. I am currently writing about it in the sequel to my memoir, The Nancy Who Drew: The Memoir That Solved A Mystery.
Meanwhile, I leave you with a quote from Caressence of Heart Rising ~ in which she explains what the Rainbow Ring means to her ~
The world of bendy colours. Look through the red section to get you going in the morning. The orange section to warm up a dull day. The pink to see others smiling on the subway and the green to make the pavement covered in nature’s glory.
