Be the Rainbow You’re Meant to be is now “unfiltered from the heart”

So often we embrace some aspects of our lives while trying to resist others. We judge what we feel is “good” to feel and seek more of it, then we shun the parts that do not fit. This puts us at the mercy of our external environment and causes us to ignore our internal one. We become seeds on the breeze when we are un-rooted in the full experience that the spectrum of life has to offer.

Our emotions are the dashboard upon which we can navigate through our troubles, yet so often we allow them to consume us. They are just part of the experience. Blocking out part of our emotional spectrum through judgment is like turning off one of the colors of the rainbow. We then begin to feel incomplete and unwhole. This shame blocks our personal power and growth.

Rainbows represent the light spectrum in all of its component parts. They can also represent for us hope, for a rainbow needs both rain and light to be seen, often born after the storm. I like to think of rainbows as the sun’s gratitude for the rain. 

Rainbows can also represent a return to childlike innocence, trust and the belief in miracles. The belief that everything really is going to be okay (and already is), despite the seeming difficulties we face. 

So I wonder, what are some ways to return to that childlike innocence? How can we return to being a whole and complete, living the full spectrum of life (and not be so damn serious)? While I’ve written about this recently in various posts, I’ll share again some things I’ve started doing recently:

  • Superhero Socks
  • Dressing Up for Fridays instead of Down (PTs always dress casual, anyway)
  • Glitter nail polish
  • Dancing in the morning while I get ready to Happy Music
  • Believing in & loving myself again
  • Being okay with the emotions as they arise, even having gratitude for them (once I can see them, I can move through them so that they no longer control me)

How can we each embrace another aspect of ourselves today?

You are capable of more than you know! ~Glinda

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.

  1. Tiffany this is Awesome, reading your bullets point at the end puts a big smile on my face, I’m visualizing the glitter nail polish and superhero socks. Did ya notice in the first pic that Judy Garland is Not wearing earth momma shoes, not that there is anything wrong with them. I’m beginning to think that you are on your own Yellow Brick Road. You sound so positive and upbeat it makes me happy for you and it is contagious you know! Can’t thank you enough for taking all of us on the wonderful Journey you are on! I was gonna pick out an emoji but there simply aren’t enough. Love Ya Kiddo! Have a wonderful weekend! Barn

      1. I don’t think it really is for anybody at least not all the time, but I am really happy for you! My own battle is really heating up but I am greatly encouraged. I have learned so much about myself, addiction and the source of emotional pain my head is kinda spinning. I also have a lot of content for blog posts. Hmmm. 😆💞 Blessings, Barn
