Why we are here

Kyah Rayne was born March 17, 1997. The name Kyah, in its African root, means “diamond in the sky.” In Hindi, Kyah means Aura/Life changing and her middle name, Rayne, means “Queen.” Keshet, her Hebrew name means “rainbow.” She was and will always be a Life Changing Queen. Kyah was one of those unique bright lights in the lives of everyone she knew. She had a quiet, self-assured presence. She didn’t need to be the center of attention, but she took her place there with ease and assurance. She danced her way through life. She required the truth from her family, friends, and herself. She was a beauty inside and out. She was and will always be my best friend and teacher. She knew who she was and continues to show me how to be the best I can be. To live, to love, to tell the truth, to dance, to be of service. She was the smartest person I've ever met. Kyah Rayne is my daughter.

Indigo Child

Kyah Rayne’s Journal entry July 13, 2016

I always knew there was magic in my eyes; a power, a force. The specialness coming from within the Looking Glass. They change with my mood, the seasons, the clothes I cover myself with. I feel the power radiating behind them when I look into the sun they are sensitive and blurred, but I feel as though they are the inner light of my being. Sometimes my stare can tell a story better than my mouth can. My eyes reflecting my thoughts without any words spoken.

This year has held ratifying change; spiritual, emotional, physical change. Soulful change. My so-called “awakening", becoming my true and false self. It is not that I feel superior. It is that I feel special. I am special. I feel that I was put on the earth for a reason this life, my life holds a purpose.

I always knew there was a magic in my eyes. Indigo magic. I am an Indigo Child. Rare and beautiful and strong. Special. Though my awakening was recent, I have always had Indigo magic in me. There were always signs. As a child, I was sick a lot. I cannot eat most things. I was delicate. My hands always shaky. People think it’s a nervous tick, my thighs always shaking rapidly under the table. It’s not a nervous tick, I am rarely nervous. I shake when I am thinking. I am always thinking. I can handle weather better than most; my skin being is thicker than most.Why me? I don’t know why. I am special. I will live this life as an Indigo Child. I see shapes when I close my eyes. I see things.

I will never be normal. I will never have a 9-to-5 and I will never stick with unhappiness. I will grow. I will wander. I will learn. I will teach. I will know when I need to change and when I need help. People won’t understand me. Some people will. It is not my duty to change people beliefs, it IS my duty to help people.

A Hero's Climb

Kyah Rayne Peak
Ace and Max Cohen set out on a “Hero's Climb” that took them on an epic journey to name a mountain in the Valley of the Gods in honor of our girl. Ten climbers set out on this journey in Himalaya Pradesh, India in July, 2019. The trek started in the northern town of Kullu. It would take the 10 climbers 9 days to reach the 16,000 ft summit. The difficulty level of the climb was so intense that 3 of the 10 did not summit. It was treacherous. It was powerful. It was a labor of love and dedication. The climb was unique and recorded in the Hindi Times newspaper with much fanfare. Mountains in the Valley are named in Hindi. Kyah means Aura (life) changing and Rayne means Queen in Hindi. So, our girl will forever have a mountain that bears her name in the Valley of the Gods. Kyah Rayne Peak, Life Changing Queen.

100 LOVE SONNETS BY PABLO NERUDA

SONNET #94

If I die, survive me with such sheer force that you waken the furies of the pallid and the cold, from south to south lift your indelible eyes, from sun to sun dream through your singing mouth. I don’t want your laughter or your steps to waver, I don’t want my heritage of joy to die. Don’t call up my person. I am absent. Live in my absence as if in a house. Absence is a house so vast that inside you will pass through its walls and hang pictures on the air Absence is a house so transparent that I, lifeless, will see you, living, and if you suffer, my love, I will die again.
