For the month of June, we will be celebrating the diversity of creation and humankind as “earth-born & rainbow-hued”. This connects to the celebration of PRIDE month in Toronto and the variety of events available for us to enjoy.
I offer this prayer, which connects the colours of the rainbow to different expressions of the spirit. You might like to take the time and consider what each colour stands for in your life and spiritual journey.
Rainbow God, you embody all the colors of the earth.
Red is for life, the root of spirit.. We give thanks that God created us just the way we are.
Orange is for sexuality, the fire of spirit. Kindle a fire of passion in us.
Yellow is for self-esteem, the core of spirit.. Help build our confidence.
Green is for love, the heart of spirit. Fill our hearts with untamed compassion for all beings.
Blue is for self-expression, the voice of spirit. Motivate us to call for justice.
Violet is for vision, the wisdom of spirit. Connect us with others and with the whole creation.
Rainbow colors come together to make one light, may we embody all the colours of the earth! Amen.
