The Rainbow Center is a small family run unit dedicated to providing service to others. My name is Art Wells and I am an ordained minister in the Universal Church of the Master (UCM). The Master is Jesus the Christ.
UCM is a church in which members are encouraged to develop and exercise their spiritual powers. We discourage adherence to rigid dogmas and tenets, believing that each person must find and travel his/her own path in the light, and that no single set of fixed rules is applicable to everyone in their spiritual quest.
UCM started as and still is a spiritualist church, knowing that no one ever dies and contact and communication with those who have passed over is quite normal and natural. UCM is nondenominational and open and allows each minister to practice their calling as they see fit. For more information on UCM see: www.u-c-m.org
I am assisted by my loving wife Kay, son Brandon and others. [picture]
Why the rainbow?
In the mid eighties, in a waking vision, I was shown (given) the rainbow as a symbol to use for my ministry, teaching and healing. I also received a message of what the symbol means, at least to me. I had "business" cards made up with a rainbow on the front and the prescribed meaning on the back.
The words are:
"The Rainbow is the healing bridge between the Earth and Sky, Creator and Creation, ourselves and our Higher Self and between the hearts of us all."
It is, in my opinion, as beautiful and as meaningful today as when I first received it.
At the bottom I put the phrase "Mitakuye Oyasin" which many people mistake as the author of the quote's name but in fact is Lakota for "All my relations" or "We are all related" or "Everything is related." This is what Wallace Black Elk has to say about it.
“You are a part of everything! You are part of the fire, you are part of the water, you are part of the green, you are part of the stars, and you are related to everything. You are related to the stones, to the trees, to the fish, to the creepy-crawlers, to the ones that fly, to the ones that walk on all fours, and to the ones that walk on two legs. Everything is sacred and, therefore, you are sacred too. That’s what we mean when we say, Mitakuye oyasin.”
