We are all aware of the magic of rainbows but I wonder how many of us have been at the end of one or been close enough to one? There seem to be far more over the years than there used to be. I recently had an experience which I would like to share and perhaps some of you have experienced something similar, in which case I would love to hear.
I was driving up the A1 motorway one day last week around nine am. It was a bright sunny morning and as I drove along the sky was clear. Then I noticed the rainbow which looked as though it was straddled across the dual-carriageway. At first I thought I was dreaming. How often in our lives do we see rainbows so close, and the colours red, orange, yellow and green to the right of the dual carriageway and blue, purple and violet so bright to the left of the dual carriageway? The road ahead as I drove onward was dark grey colour. It was one of those times when you want to stop and take a picture and you realise you have left your camera in the boot.. Well on this occasion my hands were full and too much traffic to pull over. So I continued through this darkness, as raindrops bounced off the bonnet of my car like hail stones but the size of five pence pieces. I was almost at my destination when the sky became brighter as though I had come out of the other side..
I later learned that in Colorado Springs double rainbows are regularly seen in the skies.
Ann here and I’m thrilled that you have found my post. First I would like to introduce myself and tell you a little about me. My home is in North-East England, United Kingdom which is close to Newcastle where I was born. My parents were also british and we were a small family with only my sister and myself. My mother past away in December 2006, my sister lives abroad coming home every so often to visit my father who is ninety-two and now living in a nursing home. I am a single mum but my daughter is now all grown up and living in south-west England.
At a young age I had Meningitis and later suffered from an Essential Tremor. I was nine years old when I first took ill and I am now sixty-four but despite struggling with shaky hands and body I still managed to run a business. Thank goodness for keyboards as they help to keep my fingers active. I have never allowed my disability to take over my life.
I drive a Ford Focus Ghia which I love to take my dogs out in, when we go for walks along the beach . My interests included animals which involve my daughter’s very beautiful 24 year old thoroughbred gelding Alf whom I adore. Also my red and white king charles spaniel, susie. I have plenty of ideas which I love doing throughout my life and felt it was time to look into these in more detail. I am a keen gardener and I completed a garden design & landscaping course. I have worked in some of the most beautiful gardens which open to the public. . My other interests were reading tarot, attending a number of psychic fairs, giving readings and healings to people and animals. I also love to write poetry and I have written some short stories although I haven’t written or published any recently.
The Quartz Rose
I’d like to tell you a little about “The Quartz Rose,” and what it will be about. I first started this blog three years ago and I am ashamed to tell you it has never gotten past the starting post. I loved the name the Quartz Rose despite not being sure what I would do with it ( I guess that may sound silly.) At the time it stood for all that I was then. During the past nine months I took a course and I am now a facilitator for that course which I intend to offer to anyone who is interested in finding their Life Purpose.
When I first came on the internet I was running my own Floristry Business which I dearly loved. Making floral arrangements and actually just working amongst so many beautiful flowers. This allowed me to be creative in so many ways as well as very rewarding. I was in my element playing this role whilst meeting so many interesting people but the younger generation were bringing such awesome ideas in fresh modern designs it was time for me to call it a day and so I finally closed my business earlier this year.
Since then I have been drawn into areas which have helped encourage me to see where my true path lies. I have resolved many issues and blocks, uncovered hidden memories, removed all inhibitions and now I’m beginning to truly live a life which I thought had almost impossible. I’m helping others to live their lives, whilst loving and enjoying themselves in the process as they uncover their direction and inner child. I have spent many months soul searching, not sure where I was going but feeling as though I am here for a reason to do something?
Over the past few years I have been unsettled and not quite sure where I was going or what I actually wanted. However after searching high and low I believe I am where I am meant to be in this moment!
