Over the orange rainbow
Last week we looked at the colour red seeking to open our eyes, ears and senses to this part of the rainbow.
This week let us look at orange.
Where we see it.
How it affects us.
What we can learn.
Again let us start this week with a time of mediation
I wonder if you would try this together. One of you could read this out or if you are alone read it first and follow it as closely as you can.
Find a place to be comfortable and get in a comfortable position
Feel your body from head to toe
take your time, don't hurry
notice how it feels
Take a few gentle breaths
Now imagine a rainbow – where you have seen one
trace the shape in your imagination
see the colours how clear they are
notice how they blend together
When you are ready focus on the orange part of the rainbow
see where it is in the rainbow, notice the colours around us
Now trace the orange bow from one side of the rainbow to the other
do this again as slowly as you can
Notice what the colour makes you think and feel
When you are ready
look again at the colours around it
now the whole rainbow with all its colours
Think where the rainbow is
and then where you are now
Come back to the place where you are and have a walk around
I wonder what you noticed when you thought about the colour red.
Talk with someone about the experience
