Let the
Rainbow within you shine For September 2014

It is said that rain is grace in the form of the skies descending on the earth and it's that time of the year again. Some may hate it, and some may love it, but you can't deny that everybody needs it! And seen from that perspective, it's easier to rejoice in the rains and go with the flow quite literally. For the truly pessimistic and naysayers, there is a silver lining to the clouds, which will brighten up the dullest of moods with a simple glimpse of its beautiful self - the rainbow.

The experience of seeing the rainbow has a magical quality to it. It stirs a deep response within us and in a way, inspires us to connect with our inner selves. This stirring of the soul is not a mere coincidence but is deep rooted in the reality of our being providing us with a mirror to look within. The seven colours of the rainbow are representative of the seven chakras of life.
