Color Prescription I: Red and The First Chakra


Working with The Color Red and The First Chakra

The color red has many moods,
many meanings,many messages
Red is the color of fire, love and passion
Of fear and anger
Red can energise you
Red can depress you
Red stirs the the senses
and ignites the emotions
Red excites and stimulates

A red light brings us to a halt
and signals warnings too
The red embers of a burning fire
create warmth and harmony
A red sunrise always inspires me and
A red sunset delights and warms the soul
Red roses are a symbol of love
Red poppies for remembrance.

Does red ignite you?
Does it stir a passion in you?
Maybe even make your heart sing?

I have been working with the color red and my root chakra over the past 2 week. I was surprised when I put my series of paintings together that the last 2 prescription paintings that I discovered were the forerunner to this series which combines color and working the balancing of my chakras. I have had an online course called True Balance that Sonia Choquette gave us last year, sitting waiting for me to explore. I started on the course when I decided on the color prescription series. I have found that this couple of weeks of working on my base chakra were both illuminating and challenging. The painting didn’t flow freely for me and I feel that I may return to this color again.

Today I am excited about the process as in my meditation today I have come up with the concept for 7 color meditations. So I will be experimenting over the next few weeks as I work with each chakra and look forward to sharing these with you as I develop them over the next 6 weeks..

The next color prescription with be orange and the sacral chakra next week.

Be inspired, be empowered, be the change and make a difference TODAY! And remember to have FUN

    Such a wonderful way to to work with color Suzie. Working with the chakras and their associated colors ~ Giving time for the subtle stories that each color will hold for you. Loved looking at the variety of ‘reds’ in your slide-show. Red is a fabulous healing color in winter too ~ Good to wear red socks and gloves to keep the extremities warm.

    Hello Suzie -

    What I like most about the color red, you mentioned a few of that above in your post. Red symbolizes the color of emotion and warmth. So very cool. And better still is the symbolic nature the color red has in terms of love, loving, and being loved. Love is the most special of all human emotion and none of us would be here writing and commenting without it. Love is great and thank you for a wonderful post. :)

    I loved your painting and I also happen to love red! It’s no wonder since I’m a Scorpio, right? My home was decorated in yellow and red. The red was a sort of tomato red with strong orange undertones. I loved it! It really energized me and brought out my creative nature. To me red represents vigor and passion and intensity – all the things that I adore.

    I’m looking forward to the Sacral Chakra painting!
