Here is the story, ‘All the Colors of Your Hands’ that goes with ‘Shining Rainbow Hands’ CD.

Darius, an imaginative little boy, remembered his grandmother pointing out the rainbow to him after a storm, saying it was a magical place far, far away, just like the stars.  He was fascinated by this and asked his grandmother to take him there. She promised to take him on a special journey to the Rainbow Planet but went to heaven peacefully one morning soon after their talk.

Darius missed his grandmother and had forgotten about their planned rendezvous when she came to him in a dream and said, “Darius, wake up and come to my rainbow home in the sky.”

Standing by his bed, his grandmother was wearing a beautiful white gown and holding rainbow balloons in her hands.  He immediately chose the red balloon and was surprised to see that he startedfloating out of his bed and up into the sky with the balloon lifting him slowly far above the earth. He felt excited and nervous at the same time as the earth was like a small dot, way below the clouds. He hung tighter unto the balloon, even though his grandmother was floating right beside him on a big white winged-horse.

She said, “Darius we are almost at the RAINBOW planet. Be ready for a quiet landing”. Darius saw an arc of colors coming closer and felt a bit dizzy. There were many beautiful colors appearing at once.

He remembered his grandmother telling him to breathe deeply and slowly anytime he felt nervous with doing something new and it always calmed him down.  So, he did his special breathing of “Two in and Two Out” through his nose and landed safely on a big flat green platform.  He was surprised to see a group of people welcoming him with big smiles and waving their hands full of rainbow colors.

Darius forgot about his nervous stomach after his balloon trip and felt his heart open as all the families welcomed him with big rainbow hugs and led him around to see the ‘Rainbow planet.’  The whole group joined hands and weaved their way across the land, that was covered with beautiful rainbow trees – red, green, blue, orange, purple and white and many shades in between.  Darius also noticed that all the people and children had ‘rainbow-colored hands.’

He asked the boy beside him, “Why are your hands painted like a rainbow?”

The boy shook his rainbow hands and said, “Hey Darius, my name is Sirius. We like to communicate with our hands while singing. We also know how to speak silently, and can hear the silent sounds around us and within us, like vibrations moving through the air like a balloon.”

Darius said, “This is really cool. Please show me how your rainbow fingers work.”

Sirius, yelled to the rest of the rainbow hands people to show Darius.  Immediately, everyone started shaking their hands, turning their wrists in and out quickly. All the colors flashed before his eyes and Darius started laughing as he understood it meant – ‘Let’s have a party’. Of course, he loved parties with birthday cakes.

He marveled as a big rainbow cake landed on a nearby white glimmering star-shaped table. Darius asked, “How did you do this guys?”

They all yelled back, “We just waved our hands in unison and imagined a rainbow cake and pizazz it appeared in a flash. What else would you like to manifest?”

Darius said, “How about a rainbow dog?” In a flash, a dog of many colors appeared beside him and started waving his rainbow tail back and forth.

Darius laughed and asked, “How can I have rainbow hands too?”

The other kids laughed and Sirius said, “We will show you. Watch carefully.”

Sirius begins, “Each of your fingers has a special color and planet that expresses you:

Your first finger (thumb) is red and represents the planet MARS,your inner fire giving action, movement and success. Think of its ‘action and victory’ as you give it a shake to say hello.

Your second finger (index finger) is green and is like the planet JUPITERthat gives wisdom and knowledge and represents who you are. Think of its ‘wisdom’ as you give it a shake to say hello.

Your third finger (middle finger) is orange and has the qualities of SATURNthat gives patience, steadiness and determination to finish anything you do. Think of its ‘patience and steadiness’ as you give it a shake to say hello.

Your fourth finger (ring finger) is a brilliant yellow and has the qualities of the SUNthat gives you energy and makes you shine like the sun. Think of its ‘energy’ as you give it a shake to say hello.

Your fifth finger (pinkie) is a bright blue and has the qualities of MERCURYthat helps you to have clear speech and to speak the truth. Think if its ‘clear speaking’ as you give it a shake to say hello.

Okay Darius, “Are you ready to shake all your fingers at once, yelled Sirius?” Darius nodded as he started shaking his fingers with his eyes closed.  “Join in with us as we sing ‘All the Colors of Your Hands’ and you will see something magical happen.”

All the colors of your hands

As we’re (clap, clap, clap) welcoming our brothers

And we’re (clap, clap, clap) swinging our bodies…

Dancing for the land

Cause we’re family.

(repeat chorus 2)

 

Darius started singing using his listening ears with his eyes still closed. At the end of the song, Sirius said to Darius, “So Darius, you can open your eyes now.”

Darius slowly opened his eyes and was amazed to see all his fingers were shimmering rainbow lights of color; he felt a different vibration or tingling in each of his fingers in both hands. He was now connected to his new friends of the ‘Rainbow planet’.

And, at this precise moment, he felt in his heart the warm smile of his grandmother sending him loads of love, and felt the love vibrating in his hands. What a gift he had just received! And now he had his own rainbow hands.

Reading his mind, the children of the Rainbow planet then clapped and shook their hands, saying ‘We are all family.’ And in that moment, Darius accepted all the different people from different places as part of his ‘world’ family.

When Darius returned to Earth, he spread ‘All the Colors of Your Hands’ to many children and families around the world.
