Red

This is a follow-on post from an earlier series on the Metaphysical Properties of Colour.

As we look a bit deeper into the Properties of Colour, you may find reading these first, or at least referring to them will help you understand what I am talking about in this post.

How can we benefit from this colour?

This is a follow-on post from an earlier post on the Metaphysical Properties of Red.  It is from a series of posts about Colour Properties.

You may find reading these first, or at least referring to them will help you understand what I am talking about in this post

Let’s start with the obvious. Red is the colour of blood. Without blood, a person cannot survive. Our blood provides us with oxygen and through our bodily reactions gives us the strength and vitality we need to function.

The survival issues mentioned as one of the Red properties refer to being able to provide food, shelter and clothing – again, without these items we couldn’t survive….or not for long.

This colour is associated with the Base or Root chakra which connects us to Earth and provides grounding. When you are feeling light-headed or have a foggy mind, it may be that you need to become more grounded. This chakra contains the genitalia and sexual drive needed for reproduction.

Red is considered the colour of enthusiasm and “get-up and go” which is why it is often suggested as a colour to wear when you wish to be within your power. It is a great colour to surround yourself with if you need energy, concentration or courage.

The colour of action and movement, it is often (maybe in jest) – stated that red cars go faster. It is a colour that suggests passion, courage and daring. Bull fighter’s and Superhero’s capes are an example of the use of this colour to convey the message. Red roses are given to loved ones and dates such as Valentine’s Day are marketed around the colour red from lingerie to chocolates.

Red also suggests anger and when believed righteous, can be the motivation for change.

It is presumed a rock has no consciousness. It is neither aware of itself nor other items around it or how they may interact together. As we gain more awareness of ourselves, our surroundings and the suggestion of The Divine or Universal Consciousness, it is said we are awakening.

How can the lessons be addressed?

If we have feelings of resentment, frustration, anger, disappointment or aggression, there is generally an abundance of Red energy. It is said we are hot under the collar. It is during these times that we should STOP and breathe…. This way we retain our power! Otherwise we become out of control.

When it is difficult to provide the material things needed to enjoy life or in some cases just to survive, we can become embarrassed of our situation and feel separated from our friends and loved ones or worse from Spirit. We may show competitive or materialistic behaviours. During these times, we need to find a way of grounding ourselves and reconnecting.

An affirmation to say each day is

“I am in my power”

As with other things we often hear people say “fake it until you make it” and this could apply to the affirmations. You may not feel in your power on day 1, but stay with it and with repetition you will feel the connectedness and awakening that you desire.

Chakra and Physical areas associated with Red

If any of these areas or conditions listed under the Chakra and Physical areas are causing concern, you can look at using the suggested crystals in their red form. Small pieces can be carried in your pocket or use larger specimens in your office or bedroom.

Clothing is another easy way to benefit from the energy of colour. Don’t wear Red? Use red socks if you need grounding or have week circulation. Underwear is a great way of stimulating under-active conditions – and no-one will know.

Food is a great source of Red –  Red meat, berries, beetroots, radishes all assist the blood and provide energy.

Is your concern that you have too much energy or passion, or are easily angered? You may find using the opposite colour to be effective. Green sits opposite red on the colour wheel. You can check out the Properties of Green here.

Carnelian

Carnelian is an agate class of chalcedony that is a stone of creativity, individuality, and courage. Like all agates, it has protection energies.

It can aid memory, including recall of past lives. It can assist one in finding the right mate. It is also a stone of protection in general and from anger, jealousy, and fear.

In addition, it can help with manifestation of one’s desires, and brings good luck. Carnelian can help ease or remove sorrows. It also helps stabilize energies in the home. It is sometimes called the “actor’s stone”.

Carnelian is associated with the root and sacral chakras.

Physically, carnelian has been used to heal open sores, rejuvenate tissues and cells, rheumatism, kidney stones and other kidney problems, gall stones, colds, pollen allergies, and neuralgia.

Carnelian is generally found in Orange or Red colours and information from the Metaphysical Properties of these colours may work in conjunction with this stone.

The metaphysical properties of this colour

Red colour properties

In this series of posts on the properties of colour I have included an overview of the metaphysical properties and information on some colours and the chakras that they relate to.  I have also included some lessons and affirmations.

Later, in a more in-depth series, I will build on the properties of these colours and how you can use them to your benefit.

Having studied the Aura Soma system of Colour Therapy to the Advanced Level I find the natural benefits of vibrations from colour intriguing and I’m always trying to find out more information on this subject.

Red

Red is the colour of energy, enthusiasm, passion, action and motion.  It is the colour that gives us the “get-up-and-go”, the strength, vitality and energy to make changes and mental re-evaluations needed in our lives.

It is beneficial for Earthing / Grounding us when we are feeling spacey or not quiet fully aware – a great trick that may work in this situation is to wear red socks.

Red is the colour of material matters and survival issues. The day to day challenges that we often meet in making a living and keeping a roof over our heads.

Courage and daring can be supported by this colour and it is a great colour to use in situations where you want to come across as an extrovert or being in power and control.

Red is often thought of as the colour of sacrificial love and Christ consciousness. It is the colour of awareness and awakening.

Red is also the colour of blood and may help in situations that require improved circulation. It can also be warming and useful for the treatment of chilblains and cramped muscles.

The Lesson for Red

"Holding onto resentment"

An inability to deal with frustration and anger in a positive way.  Disappointment, lack of earthing and the need for grounding, can all be addressed through this colour.

Difficulties with material matters, feelings of separation and embarrassment are other lessons offered by Red.

Red can also be an issue with dominance, excessive competitiveness, extreme materialism and over indulgence.

Stop / danger are often indicated by red – think Red Back Spider – so if this colour is being shown to you often, stop and become aware of your actions or surroundings and see what you are in danger of doing / saying / being.

The need for Red

"To become a conscious being"

An affirmation suitable for this colour is

"I am now in my power".

Chakra and physical areas connected with Red are the Earth Star, Base/Root, Base of Spine, Large Intestine, Adrenal Glands, Legs, Feet, Rectum, Genitals.

Physically it is also associated with Blood / iron, the circulatory system, chilblains, cramped muscles, lethargy, sexual issues, the Kundalini energy, fight / flight response (adrenals).

It can be successfully used to stimulate under active conditions such as circulation, weakened muscles, impotence, frigidity, and bowel inactivity.

This colour connects with

China, Russia, Far East Himalayas & North American Indians (Sharman energy)

Crystals / gems

That may provide assistance with these issues

ruby colour properties of red

Suitable Crystals / gems (in their red form when possible) are Agate, Aventurine, Bloodstone, CarnelianFluoriteGarnetHematiteJasperOpalClear Quartz, Rose QuartzRhodonite, RubyStauroliteTourmalineZircon.

You may find wearing or using these and other red items provides assistance when dealing with any of these Red issues.

Clothing is another easy way to benefit from the energy of colour.  Red isn’t your favourite colour?  Use socks or underwear in this colour as a great way of reminding yourself that you are connected and have confidence – and no-one will know.

If that doesn’t suit you, how about red sheets (or just the pillowcase) or bathe in bath-salts in this gorgeous colour.

Drink a beetroot juice, eat a Strawberry.   All these things will just hold your attention and remind you that you are on a journey to reconnect.

Star Gazer Collection
A stack of gemstone bracelets
 
 The Solar Bracelets in this picture represent the planets in our solar system and the wearer is the sun. The planets orbit around their wrist. How special is that?
 
The matte black Onyx of deep space are joined by Citrine (Mercury), Rose Quartz (Venus), Azurite (Earth), Moonstone (Moon), Carnelian (Mars), Amethyst (Jupiter), Pyrite (Saturn), Clear Quartz (Uranus), Fluorite (Neptune) and Cloudy Quartz (Pluto).
 
In this post I will discuss the stones and planets relationships.
 
The photo depicts some of the colour differences within the stones, especially Azurite (which can be more green or blue), Fluorite which has different intensities of greens and purple shades and Cloudy Quartz with the different shades of grey.
 
If you have a preference for one of these options, or would like to use a different stone associated with the planets, please contact me to arrange a custom piece.

Crystal Association

Planet, Crystal and Star Sign Connection

The Sun is the most important aspect of your birth chart as it represents your core being.  When wearing this bracelet, you represent the sun!

The closest planet to the Sun is Mercury, the ruling planet for Gemini and Virgo.  Citrine is a stone often associated with Mercury and provides the properties of intelligence, logic and communication

Venus is considered the planet of love and sits well with the unconditional love associated with Rose Quartz.  The signs of Taurus and Libra are ruled by Venus.

 

Solar system Star Signs and Planets

Earth and it's Moon

Earth is the next planet in the solar system, and I have chosen Azurite to represent our beautiful blue planet. Azurite can clear confusion and enable you to see and perceive the world clearly.

Moonstone is associated with the Moon which represents the reactive or habit-forming self and Moonstone can help enhance healthy habits.  The Moon is technically not a planet, but it has a huge influence over us.  Just consider the effect it has on the tides.

 

Crystal Association

Planet, Crystal and Star Sign Connection

Solar system bracelet is part of the Star Gazer Collection

The red planet, Mars is associated Carnelian which can calm excessive energy and enable one to become more assertive.  Mars is the ruler of the sign Aries and traditionally Scorpio was also considered to fall under its rule.

Jupiter is considered the planet of expansion and the ruler of Sagittarius. Pieces was traditionally considered under its rule.  Amethyst is one of the stones associated with Jupiter and can aid right brain activity and help see opportunities and growth

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn while Aquarius traditionally sat under its rule.  Saturn represents structure and lessons in life and Pyrite grounds us and provides clear, practical thinking and enhances practicality.

Uranus rules the sign of Aquarius and is considered the planet of renovation and restructuring.  Clear Quartz is often linked to this planet.  It stimulates brain functions and provides clarity.  Considered a Master Healer it can be used to intensify surrounding energies.

The ruler of the sign Pisces, Neptune represents imagination, mysticism and creativity.  A stone connected to this planet, Fluorite helps us to grasp higher, more abstract concepts and facilitates inter dimensional communications.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planer of transformation. Cloudy Quartz can purify negative energy, revive your vitality and give you the strength to regenerate.
