A new year and new decade spread before us! In honor of this, here is Rainbow Woman’s meditation:
Inside you shimmers a pathway
arced across the sky.
Step up onto this bridge of color.
Immerse yourself in every hue
to reach the promise
of your wholly realized self.
When you have a problem,
you can bridge to solution
once you find this pathway
between Earth and Sky.
Feel your hands in the yellow.
Feel your hips in the orange.
Feel your mind growing mellow
as you cross the vast sky.
Green beckons you lightly.
You step right into it.
It feeds your heart
and cleans your mind.
As you move into aqua ever so briefly,
feel its fluidity sparkle and shine.
Feel the blue flowing all the way through you.
Clear space is growing throughout all your cells.
Move into indigo. Rest in its knowing,
deeper and deeper, developed in your wells.
Wise sight is blinking as you move into violet,
the harmonizing of your red with your blue
into a new state of being so true.
Breathe into its radiant world.
Breathe it through every layer of you.
Breathe it into your core of protection
and breathe out its support
all the way around you.
From within this beautiful bubble,
you can experience a shining world.
From this place removed from trouble,
you step into crimson beckoning you.
Breathe its octave from magenta to geranium
fully, completely, all the way through.
Every tint of red is flowing,
Stride your way into brilliant orange,
gleaming inside and all around.
Breathe into its vital glow,
and breathe it out into all you know.
Step now into the field of yellow,
golden sunshine warming you.
Breathe it into all your being
and breathe it out
through your ways of being.
All of its colors are winding through you.
Submerge yourself into the green now,
spring-new to emerald, and forest true.
Breathe its nourishment
to the center of each cell,
and breathe its nourishment back
to the world you love so well,
as it leads you to step gently
into blue of water and sky,
with each of their tints
So breathe this spacious sweetness
into your full completeness,
and breathe its freedom out
to liberate all about
as you move into the enveloping night-sky blue,
the velvety revelation of your indigo knowing.
Breathe this velvet in
to your atoms’ very spin,
and breathe this velvet out
to the deep world all about
that yields specifically to you
its original, mystery view.
Stroll now into purple, plum, violet,
wine, cranberry creation.
Soak in their libation.
Breathe the purple through,
further vitalizing the full you,
as you breathe it out like a funnel,
through which you slide like a tunnel,
tumbling gently out onto green grass.
You are the rainbow now, at last,
as you move into the life
your consciousness has cast.
