How to make Rainbows in your Life thru Meditation, Insights and Healing Foods!



Do you feel blue or grey, red or pink? Did you know that colors have psychological properties?


I enjoy teaching the healing benefits of Yoga and Tai Chi at Kaiser Permanente Healthy Living Center. As each class comes to a close, I lead patients with deep breathing and guided imagery. The following rainbow meditation is a class favorite!


Rainbow Meditation

  • Sit or lie down in a comfortable position in a quiet space.

  • Breathe deeply into your nose, through your lungs and into your diaphragm while you think the words, ‘I am relaxed.’

  • Imagine yourself in a beautiful place in nature, your own vacation spot that you can go to whenever you want to find peace of mind and tranquility.

  • See a beautiful rainbow above you. Each color represents a feeling.

  • Now, see a soothing blue color of peace flow through you and shine from you.

  • Visualize a lovely pink light gently warming you with love.

  • Now, a sunny yellow light fills you with friendliness and creative intelligence.

  • See the color red strengthen you and fill you with courage.

  • Now, a green light nourishes you with harmony and balance.

  • See a warm orange light nurturing you with abundance.

  • Visualize a violet spiritual light filling you with truth.

  • Now, a white light cleanses you and purifies you.

  • Each color of the rainbow goes where it’s needed within you.

  • Feel a rainbow of colors flowing through you and extending out to the world.

  • Breathe deeply and begin to wiggle your feet and shoulders, slowly coming out of your relaxation. 🙂


Rainbow Inspiration



I find that reading inspired words and listening to inspired music, lifts my spirits! 🙂



NEW! Listen to this awesome recording of “Climb Every Mountain” by iconic performers Barbra Streisand and Jamie Foxx. I love this song! I love this album!


Rainbow Food

Our foods, fruits and vegetables are alive with color! Make it a point to eat a variety of fruits and vegetables, packed with vitamins and minerals, every day.

I’m going to use the whole box of crayons to draw a beautiful rainbow.

Let your rainbow shine!

Lady Luck steps into Las Vegas

Lady Luck steps into Las Vegas when the Rat Pack ruled the strip but also sizzles in today’s Las Vegas!

Lady Luck has been charmed by Frank Sinatra in the song, ‘Luck be a Lady,’ she has a downtown Vegas casino named after her and she is the subject of a new music video sung by recording artist, Marianna Riccio and directed/edited by award-winning videographer, Harry J Jarvis.


Singer, songwriter, Marianna Riccio is ‘Lady Luck’ in new music video!

Because of our connection to the artist, 😉 my sister and I (Alberici Sisters) also make a few appearances in the Lady Luck music video… our book is featured too!

Our historical entertainment book was prompted by a newspaper reporter who interviewed us on the Red Carpet at The Grammy Award Ceremony. We were there to honor Dean Martin receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award because of our many years performing with Dean as The Golddiggers.


The Alberici Sister’s book, Beyond Our Wildest Dreams – The Grammys Red Carpet

“As we celebrated that evening, it all came flooding back—the stars, the memories….

Touring with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin on the same bill, hanging out in the dressing rooms and at home with Sammy Davis Jr.; taping the Dean Martin TV show; opening the MGM Grand in Las Vegas with Dean and then appearing at Bally’s for so many years until Dean’s final performances. What an experience. What fun!

Spending all of that time in Las Vegas with Dean opened our eyes to who the legendary entertainer really was on a personal level; the man behind the laughter. And the sorrow.

As my sister and I searched for our friends through the crowd we were stopped by another news reporter, ‘How did you like performing with Dean Martin?’ He became enthralled with our stories of singing, dancing and palling around with Dean Martin and the Rat Pack.”

– Excerpt from “Beyond Our Wildest Dreams, book by the Alberici Sisters, produced by Billy Ingram.


My daughter, Marianna grew up watching Dean Martin and The Golddiggers on-stage in Las Vegas!

Comments on the Lady Luck music video premier have just come in…

“A STAR IS BORN… This is so amazing… What a beautiful talent!” … “You make me want to go to Vegas – NOW!!!”… “What a hoot!” … “Great song and video.” … “Awesome!” … “Entertaining and fun!” … “Fantastic song… Looking ladylicious Marianna Riccio!” … “Retro cool!!” … “Catchy tune!” … “It is more than great!!!” ….



Wasn’t that fun?

My sister Linda and I were more than pleased to sing a little snippet of ‘Luck be a Lady’ in the Lady Luck music video as our hearts commemorated 100 years of Frank Sinatra! Now, a whole new generation can take notice.

Please share with your friends!

Thanks a bunch,

Maria Lauren, a.k.a. Maria Elena Alberici – Riccio
