How to Meet a Rainbow

How to Meet a Rainbow

Imagine my awe when I walked out the door to find two ends of a rainbow in my backyard. The magical quality of it spread throughout my whole being. Optical illusion, perhaps. Or was it clear-seeing with the all-seeing I/Eye?

I stood there completely mesmerized. My backyard is about half an acre. And the rainbow ran across the diagonal. My eyes looked up, down, left, and right. How this was even happening? Why? I received the gift, knowing more magic is on its way.

I didn’t grow up with a lot of lore around rainbows. The story found in the Hebrew scriptures of it being a gift after the flood rang no more or less true than it being the marker for a Leprechaun’s pot o’ gold. Still, there is always a fascination. Rainbows bring out child-like wonder. It stops the mind and invites me in.

Many explain the universe as pure mathematics. Numerical equations. Many witness this universe as being pure sound. Musical notes. We are a song of the One Great Mind, of Awake Nature. I invite you to put on your best magical creator hat. Let’s play with these. 

In case you need a rainbow refresher, the 7 colors we see in a rainbow are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.


You might write, draw, or make sounds as you do this so grab whatever tools help you do these. 

Get comfortable. Inhale. Exhale. Center. Open your mind and heart.

Tune in to an image of a rainbow in your mind. With playful curiosity, begin to engage with it.

1. What is the sound of a rainbow? What instrument most sounds like a rainbow? What elementals, animals, or other beings sing rainbows? Notice each color separately, then joined.  Is there a song you hear? Write it down. Describe it. 

2.     What does the math of a rainbow look like?  Is it 1+1+ 1+1+1+1+1= 7 or 1 divided into 7 = both 7 and 1? Is it quantum math?  What does it feel like to equate a rainbow to a mathematical equation? What is the math of each color?
