A spiritual journey which takes you through time and space into the light of your soul.
A New Age novel--part fact, part fiction--about the reality of reincarnation and spiritual reawakening. The story takes you on a universal quest for knowledge and offers an entertaining adventure through this earth experience we call life as it offers you a light-hearted look into the ups and downs of being spiritual in a physical world. Based on a past life, the book invites you to remember who you really are and offers you an avenue to rediscover your true spiritual nature.
Amanda is a free spirit who somehow manages to get herself stuck in the energy vibration of a physical body. Of course she did it on purpose; nothing happens by accident. She's a little embarrassed to find herself on earth again and wonders how she ended up here when she vowed she'd never reincarnate again. Her most down-to-earth task is to see through the misty illusions of things for herself and to remember her spiritual nature. In the course of events, she gets sidetracked by what everyone says is real life. But she's not sure what's real anymore.
Lavender is trying to remember something she's forgotten about her spiritual nature so she registers for school in the universe and begins classes in Time and Space, Energy and Matter, and Reality Awareness. She's a little concerned about the whole idea of synchronicity and the simultaneous time-space concept; she's not sure if she can handle everything all at once. Her destiny is to unearth the mysteries of the universe and to find the Scroll of Knowledge she wrote in Egypt. But she's reluctant to remember her experiences as a philosopher and has turned off her spiritual awareness.
Rainbow is a universal light-being. She's also Amanda's higher self and Lavender's teacher who tries to help them both see the light within themselves. But Rainbow is really more than she appears to be at first, or even second, glance.
If you look somewhere over the rainbow, you'll probably see a lot of things about yourself that you knew all the time, but temporarily forgot somewhere in your earth experiences. And if you look for the light within yourself, you might remember who you really are and you might see a universal path of knowledge that all souls must travel to find the way home.

From the Introduction ...
In every sense of the word, I’m a free spirit. I’m also a real person, learning how to synchronize my energy vibrations into all my experiences. Being physical and spiritual at the same time, and in the same dimension, is an exciting and challenging adventure. Sometimes I wonder what life is all about and what’s real. I wonder who I really am and if I’ll ever know all there is to know about the true nature of my soul.
The idea for this book was born inside a rainbow that whispered to me in my dreams. As a little girl, I loved walking barefoot through the rain and looking for rainbows. (I still do.) I thought rainbows were magical because they only appeared in the sky when the clouds cleared and the sun began to shine after it rained. Whenever I’d see a rainbow, I’d feel an incomparable sense of awe and joy within myself. It was like opening a wonderful gift and discovering a beautiful treasure.
Somewhere inside me, I knew that rainbows were real and magical at the same time and I shared a special secret with the rainbow. I knew the rainbow had really been there all the time, just waiting for the sun so it could magically appear.
When I grew up, I left my rainbows and sunshine in the sky and lived in what everyone told me was the real world for a while before I saw how unreal it was. I felt lost in a world that I thought belonged to other people, not to me. Deep inside, I knew something special and important was missing, and that I wasn’t being true to my real nature.
Then one morning I woke to the sound of raindrops tapping softly on my window. As I listened to the rain, I remembered that the rainbow was centered between both worlds as it blended into the earth and the universe. I returned to the world of my imagination and dreams, and began a journey into myself to look for my soul. As I walked through the rain and traveled within the quietness of my mind, I found my rainbow again and knew what was real. Mystical knowledge can always be found hidden in the light, waiting to magically appear to anyone who knows the secret. The key is to look for the light within yourself.
Although this book is based on a past life memory, in a world where tangible things seem to matter, this book is termed fiction—a fantasy created in my imagination and in my dreams, but I know it’s really much more than that. It’s a down-to-earth, mystical search for truth—a quest for knowledge—that every soul, at one time and in one form or another, will experience as they embark on a journey to see what life is really all about and to understand who they truly are.
Because I feel that spiritual knowledge is to be taken seriously, I thought the best way to write this book would be in a lighthearted manner. Appearances aren’t always what they seem to be, and in this way I sincerely hope you’ll see how special the characters and their experiences really are because they bring the joy of knowing and the treasure of truth into your awareness through the magical avenues of your imagination and dreams.
At first glance, it may appear that Rainbow, Lavender, Amanda, and the other characters in the book are imaginary—especially the ones you’ll find running through the pages and hiding in the paragraphs—but they tend to become real when you see them in your mind. If you read between the lines and look below the surface, you may feel their thoughts and see their experiences vibrate with energy. You might recognize parts of yourself in their personalities or see familiar pieces of their experiences in your life.
Many of the situations and scenes portrayed in this book are symbolic of spiritual reawakening and represent the mystical knowledge I’ve acquired through many lifetimes. But some of the stuff is merely my interpretation of what I’ve found to be true for me. There’s more to truth than meets the eye and to see it clearly, you have to see it for yourself. That’s the joy of knowing. If you look within the mirror of your thoughts, feelings, experiences, and dreams, you’ll see the reflection of your spiritual knowledge and rediscover the essence of your soul.
As I hope you’ll also discover in the magical world of your inner knowledge, Rainbow is more than she appears to be—just as in your world, you’re more than you appear to be. As you open yourself up to seeing who you really are, and you begin to travel a mystical journey into your soul, keep in mind that the book only appears to be a reality and the characters only seem to be an illusion. The truth of the matter is: The words are an illusion, but the world they’ve created is real.
