Beyond the Rainbow is the story of a spirit called Thomas who lives in a galaxy of the cosmos. One day, when following the rainbow to see where it leads from heaven to earth, Thomas hears a strange voice calling his name, saying he was needed on planet earth. Feeling a little confused and afraid, Thomas returns to his home amongst the stars and planets, to seek advice from the Great Sky Spirit. He explains to Thomas that it must have been the voice of the Great Earth Mother who wants him to bring his special gift to planet earth.
The story follows the journey and experiences of Thomas - as he prepares to leave his familiar home as a sky spirit, be born into a family on earth and become a human being. Although the destination is unknown, Thomas had been curious about what it would be like to live on planet earth. This was his chance, so he needed to be brave if he was going to find out. After all, he was on an important mission – to fulfill his unique purpose of caring for the earth. After a long journey, Thomas realizes he’s made the right decision when he arrives safely in the arms of his loving proud parents. Thomas goes to sleep, dreaming of future adventures in his new colorful world…beyond the rainbow.
