I recently took a ride torepparttar video store to select my evening’s entertainment. A dramatic thunderstorm was passing over as I made my way across town inrepparttar 123887 middle of late afternoon rush hour traffic.

The sky was dark andrepparttar 123888 rain was coming down in torrents. I made my way intorepparttar 123889 store surrendering torepparttar 123890 inevitable soaking I was unable to prevent.

As I lost myself inrepparttar 123891 search forrepparttar 123892 perfect film to matchrepparttar 123893 mood ofrepparttar 123894 evening I became aware ofrepparttar 123895 sun, suddenly and brilliantly streaming throughrepparttar 123896 west windows ofrepparttar 123897 store.

Perfect conditions for a rainbow, I thought.

I made a quick decision, grabbed a movie, and blew out ofrepparttar 123898 store like a child distracted byrepparttar 123899 bells of an ice cream truck.

“Get inrepparttar 123900 car and drive east,” an inner voice prompted. As I drove downrepparttar 123901 street I felt like a rainbow chaser. Dodging and weaving in and out of traffic with my eyes mostly not onrepparttar 123902 road, searchingrepparttar 123903 still black sky for any sign ofrepparttar 123904 spectral wonder I knew had to be there.

Yes! There it was. Arching acrossrepparttar 123905 whole city a perfect rainbow. Each color brilliant and revealing to me it’s momentary magic. I was so excited I wanted to yell to allrepparttar 123906 passing cars, “Look up!”

I pulled intorepparttar 123907 nearest parking lot and jumped out of my car to bask in this vivid gift. Time slowed down. I felt a shift in my awareness as if I wererepparttar 123908 only one witnessing this moment. I stared intorepparttar 123909 magnificent color and began to hearrepparttar 123910 song “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.” I wondered where Dorothy fromrepparttar 123911 “Wizard of OZ” thought “overrepparttar 123912 rainbow” was.

The Ultimate Solution to Problems!

It occurs to me that we, as individuals appear to be defined by our problems. The poor are defined by lack and limitation, scarcity and want. The ill are defined by pain and suffering, fear and worry. Evenrepparttar wealthy and successful are defined by how to diversify, where to invest,repparttar 123886 best use of their money and resources and even how to keep up their lifestyle. It must then follow thatrepparttar 123887 subject of problems and HOW WE DEAL WITH THEM should be a top priority.

I recently read a very thought provoking book on this subject by Wayne Dyer called, "There's a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem". The book is based onrepparttar 123888 premise that we are all part of a vast energy field ranging fromrepparttar 123889 higher energies such are light and thought allrepparttar 123890 way torepparttar 123891 lower energies - including our solid material world where our problems exist. This vast energy field has access to allrepparttar 123892 knowledge inrepparttar 123893 universe. It's all energy.

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to be beset with one problem after another? Or why when we try to fix a problem (lose weight, stop smoking, a troublesome relationship, etc.)repparttar 123894 harder we try,repparttar 123895 more difficult it gets? That's because we WORRY aboutrepparttar 123896 problem, we THINK aboutrepparttar 123897 problem, and VISUALIZErepparttar 123898 problem - and as a result of giving so much energy torepparttar 123899 problem, we manifest more and more problems in our lives. Remember, "As you THINK, so shall you be"!

According to Dr. Dyer, low frequencies of energy encompass negative feelings such as shame, guilt, depression, and fear. These emotions are what can weaken us and keep us mired inrepparttar 123900 unsatisfactory side of life. Dr. Dyer shows that we can raise ourselves up intorepparttar 123901 higher frequencies (where we find understanding, love, joy, and serenity), and where we can accessrepparttar 123902 spiritual solutions to our problems - and he gives us step by step strategies for accessing this higher energy, which essentially is spiritual power.
