Resurrection & Rainbows

This is the season of resurrection and rainbows. This truth came to me after a series of “midlife crashes,” including a divorce after 34 years of marriage, a broken heart (literally), and a skiing accident resulting in broken bones and a head injury. I was depressed and despairing, and was given no medical encouragement that I could become strong, clear-thinking, and sturdy again. Three of my healers, knowing that Maui is my spiritual home, recommended I get to Hawaii and into the waters there. “Fat chance,” I thought, since I could barely get myself out of the house. I whined on the phone about this to my daughter, Megan, the world-traveling journalist, who was in the San Francisco area at the time. She listened, told me “get a grip,” and insisted that she would handle the travel logistics and take me to Maui. She did.

I’ve been swimming in the warm, sea-turtle water of Napili Bay for more than twenty years. I felt blessed and delighted to join the tropical fish every morning and at the same time be regaining full range-of-motion and strength in my shoulder. But the real miracle was to happen one morning after I meditated on our lanai. I had been reading Carolyn Myss’ description of the chakra colors in, Anatomy of the Spirit. When I opened my eyes, there was a magnificent rainbow covering the entire bay, arching over the island of Molokai across the straight. I immediately got that the colors in that rainbow were flowing through my body every minute of every day, every color providing a different, significant energy. But that wasn’t the miracle.

The rainbow quickly disappeared and Megan came out, joining me to journal and meditate. As she wrote, I began to have a strong wish for the rainbow to come back. I concentrated and focused my complete attention on manifesting the rainbow. Within several minutes the rainbow appeared, every bit as huge and beautiful as before. I nudged Megan and said, “Look what I did.” We laughed and giggled, and suddenly there was another fabulous rainbow above the first one. “This one’s for you,” I said. From the double rainbow, I received this message: If I could co-create a natural wonder with God, I could certainly co-create my own healing- and I did. As Louise Hay says in her book titles, You Can Heal Your Body- and Your Life.
