1.The Colour RED
When we consider our basic, or major, seven chakras or psychic centers, we imagine the colours of the rainbow. First, we can consider the colour red which is located at the site of the root chakra, located at ‘the place of your sitting’ which is at the bottom of your spine, at the perineal region of the groin.
The root chakra is the site of strength and stability. It is the place of raw power and confidence. This is where the energy for survival and fight or flight is located. When we are ill, injured or ‘out of sorts’ physically, emotionally or mentally, this chakra often is in a state of disharmony. To someone who can ‘see’ the aura, the colour red will appear weak, scattered and possibly shattered. To one who can see the actual chakras, the red may appear dull, diluted, very small and/or misshapen. It may also appear to be boldly much larger and out of proportion and its hue may be very concentrated.
Close your eyes. Imagine either a field of beautiful red flowers or a favourite red object. Slowly counting to four, breathe that red hue in through your nose. While holding your breath for a count of five, six or seven (whichever you are able to comfortably maintain), allow it to course down and settle at the bottom of your spine where your root chakra is located. Breathe out through your mouth for a count of five, six or seven (again, whichever is most comfortable). As you exhale, visualize that the breath has picked up any deep-seated anxieties and toxins and is releasing those into the air. Repeat the breath work, noticing how the red light softly yet strongly illuminates the lower area of your torso. As you become comfortable with the routine of breathing, notice how the light also illuminates your legs down to your feet. Visualize the red light extending like roots from your toes right into the earth. Feel it anchor and stabilize. You feel strong, capable and powerful. You ARE strong, capable and powerful.
Practice this meditation for ten to fifteen minutes, for three consecutive days if possible. Keep a journal and make notes of any changes you may notice in your well-being.
