Close your eyes and feel the warmth of the summer sun on your body. The sun is warm and you feel a sense of peacefulness flow into you. When you are ready, let us begin.

You are walking alone in the noon sun. Where are you? Are you near the beach or in the forest? Pick whatever scene you wish. You are dressed simply in orange, that is light on your body. You can smell the fragrance of jasmine wafting in from the south.

After your recent victories with the seven of swords, you are wondering where your next path is? Is it the same one you are on or another one? Are you living your passion to the fullest or do you need to risk some more? Out of the blue, rain begins to fall. You welcome the sweet rain and just walk in it without any thought of being wet. As quickly as the shower came it is gone. Your feel someone whisper in your ear to look up.

You look up to see a glorious rainbow with eight colors melding together. Something about the rainbow is strange to you. What is it? On closer inspection you realize the rainbow is actually colored wands in the sky. You can see words in the rainbow wands. Can you read the eight words you see etched in each one? Inspiration. Hope. Love. Destiny. Courage. Honor. Adventure. Peace. These are the words I see. Are these the same for you or are they different words for you?

Pick the word on the wand that resonates to you and notice which number it is. When you are ready, you will open your eyes. Reflect on your meeting with the rainbow of eight wands. Think on the word you chose and how you can bring the meaning of that into your life for better.
