Red And The Root Chakra
Color therapy is the use of color to facilitate health and wellness. It can be considered an energetic healing technique because color influences our emotions and our energetic system. A different color is associated with each of the chakras in our energetic system. The chakras influence our emotions and our physical bodies. Red is the color of the first or root chakra. This chakra is located at the base of the spine.

The color red is a very active color. It signifies action, passion and energy. It stimulates emotion that can be both positive and negative. The positive emotions may include strength, determination, courage and confidence. The negative emotions may include anger, irritability, and anxiety.

Stimulation is a central theme for the color red. It stimulates action energetically, emotionally and physically. The color red stimulates the appetite, circulation, and temperature. It energizes the senses and enhances organ functions. Red is a color for passion and spontaneity. It is a color for the courage and strength to put plans into action. If you are not ready for action, the color red may not be your first choice.

Red is the color of the root chakra which is located at the base of the spine. The root chakra is exactly what it says. It is the root of everything. The root chakra is about stability and having your physical needs met. It is associated with the parts of the body that hold us up such as the hips, legs and spine. It gives us the courage and confidence to live our lives.

When the root chakra is unbalanced or blocked, it can cause a sense of fear, insecurity, and instability. You can feel a sense of weakness or a loss of control. This can cause physical problems along with emotional issues. The feeling of insecurity can cause you to become stressed. This causes a release of stress hormones that can cause you even more stress.
