OK guys, I am no writer, but what you are about to read is the truth and comes from my heart.
It may seem like fantasy to fit in with The Shed, I assure you its not. It's fantastical yes, and that is what we are all doing here, creating a
fantastical place in a world where, were we to be from another planet we would wonder if what we were seeing happening to Gaia was real.
Here goes......this is who I am, and why you guys are here....
Almost 30 years ago, I was working for Mitsubishi Motors, travelling all over our fair isle. I don't recall where I was, Lincolnshire I think, but I
was driving along an A road with next to no traffic on it. I came over a little rise and there in front of me was a beautiful and complete rainbow.
There were some trees around me when I suddenly spotted another rainbow in my rear view mirror. As I drove a little further, the trees cleared and I
was at the top of a hill. What literally stopped me dead in my tracks was something few people have seen, I was honoured to be one of the few, and I
shall remember to my dying day. I skidded to a halt in a lay-by and got out of the car.
Forming a circle around me were seven rainbows.
I have never written about this before, because I have never been able to find the words to describe the profound emotional effect of what I was
seeing had on me. As I stood there turning around, and turning around with tears just rolling quietly down my face, a few other cars stopped and other
people got out. So I know there are other people out there, who have experienced in their own way, that very small but incredibly magnificent
occurrence from Mother Nature.
I was in awe. My heart was pounding, my body was shaking, the tears were flowing of their own accord. Yet I felt at total peace, as though time had
stopped, and in that very moment all was at peace and perfect in the world. Although I couldn't see it physically, I felt it.....love.....pure
unadulterated love. I stayed and soaked it up, I couldn't get enough of it, until the very last rainbow disappeared.
I got back in my car, still trembling, I lit a cigarette and just sat there wondering what the heck all that had been about. I felt different. My
physical body was hot, I was shaking, my mind was so clear, my eyes felt wide awake and the colours around me seemed brighter, I felt serene and at
total peace both with myself and the outside world. Although the intensity has diminished over the years, I still carry that experience in my heart
and I still feel it to this day.
About a week or so later I was home visiting my parents and recounted to them what had happened. Dad told me his story. During the war, the ship he
was on got torpedoed in the Med. The survivors were swimming around for hours hoping to be rescued. All of a sudden there were seven waterspouts
around them. Dad said he had the same experience as I had. He didn't think for one minute he was in any added peril, he just felt this tremendous
love, peace and serenity. The war had disappeared. As quickly as they had appeared, the water spouts disappeared. The survivors swam closer together
and knew they would be rescued. Those seven water spouts gave them the fortitude and belief to survive, because they ended up being in the water for
almost 24 hours before they were finally picked up.
That experience and the everlasting effect it has had on me has made me who I am today.
I resolved to spread the rainbows, to try and touch other peoples hearts the way mine had been touched. So they too can take a rainbow and touch
others. The world we are living in is of our own creation. Each and every human being is responsible for creating their own little world. When your
heart is full of negativity, sadness and cynicism, that is the world you will create around you. Bring a rainbow into your heart and you create love
that can be felt and reflected on others.
Life isn't easy. We all have our ups, downs, problems and varying issues we have to deal with daily. But I truly believe this is because we are part
of and a reflection of the world around us.
I try very hard not to be a part of that, or a mirror reflection.
I am a little RAINBOW.
I fly in the face of the world.
I am a RAINBOW WARRIOR.
