On a recent trip to Canada, I learnt that the arch bridge which connects New York and Niagara Falls, Toronto, is known as the Rainbow Bridge. It gets its name owing to the fact that one can often see a rainbow over the Niagara Falls. The high spray of the water makes it possible to see unusual rainbow formations. It was my first visit to the Falls and I was fortunate enough to see not one, but two rainbows! In the rarely seen double rainbow, the colours are reversed – red is the lowest and violet is the highest. This symbolises the journey of transformation, from the material to the spiritual, the ascent of life energy.
