A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon. It is caused by the sun shining on droplets of moisture in the atmosphere. These droplets form a multicolored arc that is visible in the sky.
Rainbows come after the rain. Rainbows are beautiful. Rainbows are a gift and a blessing from the Universe. They make you smile and feel happy. A thing of beauty comes after difficult times. Happy feelings can come after sad times and events.
Some places have more moisture in the air so they have more rainbows. Some people have more difficulty in their lives so they have more potential for more rainbows. A rainbow is nature’s way of reminding you that after the storms in your life there is hope for something beautiful and better.
There is an old myth; that states that if you follow the rainbow, there will be a pot of gold at the end. If you follow the beauty and good feelings of the rainbow, you will find the pot of gold at the end, which represents abundance. How you act and react during difficult times and how you treat others will determine whether you find the pot of gold.
The expression, “pot of gold” is a metaphor about how life can hand you trials and tribulations but at the end of those trials and tribulations is a rainbow which represents the promise of love and better things to come.
`In an ideal world there would be rainbows without the rain, without the trials and tribulations that you may have to experience. If life rains on you and your aspirations and dreams, shine your inner sun on it and make rainbows. It is important to keep looking for the rainbow and the pot of gold. Keep looking for the beauty and abundance in your life. Keep looking for the rainbow and follow it to retrieve the blessings and rewards that are yours. If you do that, you will be truly rich.
