The Symbol of Transformation.

A double rainbow gradually appeared in the sky, I love my life. 

The concept or perception of coincidence has changed its meaning with me over the years. I have learnt to believe that timing is absolutely perfect. People, events, emotions, thoughts, come and leave whenever they are meant to. The idea of this makes my life very fun to live.

The number of times when I am thinking about someone and then they contact me or they spawn from the distance as I walk about is, a lot! Similarly, I have heard people say this about me too. I call when they are thinking of me, show up when they want to talk to me. This sense of awareness I have gained, that life is always being active to our thoughts and emotions, has made me much more relaxed and in harmony with how I live my life. When I was young, I used to be so tight up and rigid about things. Now, I feel open to life and continue to attract really brilliant opportunities and amazing people into my life.

Life's journey is not so straight as sometimes we would like though. There have been many times in my life where I wanted something to happen or something to appear and I felt life was working against me. Irrespective to my plans, I thought life just was not listening to me. Yet, being appreciative of my life right in this moment, remembering how things as they are right now and the type of people and relationships I have with others and myself are in harmony of what I wanted years ago, and how every outcome which seemed undesired at the time transformed themselves into even better outcomes, reminded me that life has perfect timing.

Today was a busy day. I woke up with only 4-5 hours sleep, to my own fault/choice because I was laughing all night at Vine videos..., and I had 20 minutes or so to gussy up and get to my lecture on time. I did get to my lecture, just in time, but I did not let my potential crankiness of minimal sleep and noisy tummy due to skipping tea or breakfast, to deter my positive mindset to negative emotions. Instead, I controlled what I could control. With two back-to-back, 2-hour lectures done and a handing in of my coursework, I breathed out a big exhale releasing any stress and resistance to ease myself back into my relaxed state. I put on my headphones on, naturally, and walked home from campus.
As I was walking back, I felt really happy. I mean, incredibly happy. I had completed another week of  being a third year undergraduate student and I feel like I am looking after myself well. Over the past couple of days, friends and passer-bys have been complaining about the rain. To be honest with you, I love the rain. The smell of it is like a refreshing perfume or cologne and the sight of rain looks cleansing. Today, as the clouds parted, the sunshine shone through the sky and behold emerged a rainbow. Its colour was getting more and more intense in the sky and I was getting increasingly bewildered at what I was seeing before me. Then, completely unexpectedly, another rainbow was slowly unveiling itself beside the first rainbow. It was so beautiful how these rainbows side by side were in perfect resonance with each other, and they just stayed present in the sky long enough for anyone who needed to see them, to see them. Seeing the double-rainbow was just what I needed, though, I only realised this once I felt inspired to discover the meaning of a double rainbow.

A Double Rainbow Symbolises a transformation in life. 

When double rainbows appear it means that whatever is coming to you has great meaning in your life and that one good thing will lead to another good thing. I really rejoice in your happiness and good fortune. The rainbows are a sign from the cosmic universe that you are about to have something great fall into your lap!

A double rainbow means serendipitous magic is on the way, the path of personal magic is opening for you. Be true to yourself and your dreams and know that the Universe is conspiring on your behalf. This also tells you that your intuition is keener than you might have imagined... it says, "it's a sure sign to trust your vibes." [2]

With my belief that there is no such thing as coincidence, I later questioned why I was meant to see this double rainbow. So, I went exploring for some answers [1] [2] and I found some wonderful interpretations that seem to converge the same conclusion. This conclusion, is that I should be ready to expect something absolutely magnificent. You know what, my arms are spread wide and my hands are open to receive the goodness that is going to add onto my life. I feel so excited, like I am anticipating something. You know when you are awaiting a package or a letter with great news...yes, I feel like that.

This weekend I am heading to see the fireworks in a nearby town with a friend and her friends. I have finished the majority of my coursework and aim to complete it all before my summer internship interview next week. I plan to make a film of the day trip and evening fireworks tomorrow and I am so looking forward for another day out exploring and meeting new people!

Life signs are absolutely everywhere, I think that when we are ready to see them, they will come into focus and appear when they need to. Like this situation, let life be easy, may there be no feeling of hard effort or strain on your part to force things to be, just allow things to be as they are and be happy with what is. Then, life will send you exactly what you need (tangible or an emotional feeling), always.
