Tonight on my way home from work, I saw a double rainbow. I almost drove off of the road, because I could only pay attention to the beauty before me. The rainbow crossed the entire sky and landed in pockets of light radiating across the fields on each side of me. I ended up driving directly under the arch.
I had worked late, had to attend council tonight, and I was tired. While I had planned on plopping down on the couch as soon as possible once I got home, I haven’t been tired since I drove under the colors in the sky. I have felt energized and invigorated. Oh, there was no big revelation or anything like that. I simply felt happy and at peace by seeing such beauty. My problems, my little life, are so insignificant in contrast with the vast beauty and grandeur of nature. As I went about my evening’s duties, my mind kept going back to the double rainbow. What did it mean? It had to mean something.
What a year (or more…) of change it has been! Absolutely every single part of my life has been affected by change. I look in the mirror, and I don’t even know who I am anymore. Most especially, I don’t know where I am headed. Once, I thought I had my life all laid out neatly before me, but “the best laid plans….” Well, we know how that saying goes. Life seems to be like a roller coaster ride. Problem is, I can’t get off the ride. I can’t say, “Slow down.” It keeps on traveling down the tracks, and my only choice is to hold on tightly and see where this ride takes me.
I am always looking for signs. I believe that we miss signs all the time. There are cosmic mile markers that most of the time we are just too dense to pick up on. For me, a dead bird upside-down in a lamp and double rainbow in my path mean something. I’m not sure what that “something” might be, but I am waiting and listening.
I feel change all around me. I feel on the verge of something. Sometimes, I am so very impatient for it to be revealed to me. Other times, I feel a strange peace. The next chapter will reveal itself when the time is right. Bit by bit, it is unfolding before me, but I can’t quite discern what or where these signs are leading me. I’m listening, though. I am observing. I am trying my best to be patient.
Some spiritual meanings of double rainbows:
- A double rainbow is a sign from the cosmic Universe that you are about to have great blessings fall into your lap, and that one good thing will lead to another.
- A double rainbow is the symbol of transformation.
I’m ready. I’m ready for a transformation. I’m ready for change. I am ready for a few blessings. It has been long overdue.
