Let’s dive right in with insights on Red.



#1. Red is an enlivening vibration.

Certainly, optimism, hope, and other emotions arise within us as flowers and fall leaves change their displays with the seasons. The crispy golden-red foliage of fall signals the onset of winter.

But this is only one phase of their signals of changing tides or universal energy flow around us. We even adapt to its powerful tips—mostly subliminal, of course.

For instance, the beauty industry has not only recognized but also harnessed Nature’s tricks for drawing attention to the human face through Red lipsticks and cheek blushes, a reminder of the power of this color.

Yet, the impact of Red’s many shades on our physiology is a universal truth. It resonates with something beyond Nature’s outward appearance, such as the memory of living species, their cycles, and instincts.

In fact, when we are exposed to this color in certain situations, our bodies react, raising our blood pressure and respiration.

Our relationship with Red is undoubtedly not a mere cultural preference or passing trend. It is a deeply primal, timeless connection that transcends time and culture, rooted in our very Nature as human beings.

From the earliest days of our existence, Red has held a significant place in our lives, symbolizing danger, passion, and life itself.

#2. There are plenty of Red shades.


Studies show that modern reliance on artificial light has disrupted our natural bodily rhythms. Still, our ancestral memory goes back to when our survival was linked to the energy of the rising sun.

For example, the fiery oranges, yellows, and Reds that bathed our cave-dwelling ancestors in the morning were not just a source of light but a symbol of life and vitality. Food was cooked on the open fire, as the flaming Red embers kept everyone warm.

Symbolic and telltale art and script on cave walls, created with black charcoal and Red ochre from clay, underscores the historical significance of Red in human expression and communication.

With bold intrigue and ingenuity, Red fosters a deeper purpose in us with a meaningful presence.

Color light has been used as a therapy throughout the ages.

#3. It’s a sign if you are seeing Red.


The natural world can teach us the language of light as we observe the beautiful array of plants and animals, helping us better understand the meaning and use of colors of light as a mystical and potent resource.

For instance, many creatures use the color Red strategically. It can serve as a warning sign to potential predators, a distraction to catch them off guard, and a surprise element in their survival tactics. For example, the little tree frog’s green skin helps it blend in with its surroundings, but its red eyes are striking.

Red, in addition to its survival role, also plays a significant part in attraction. This is evident in the female rhesus monkey’s signature scarlet bottom and the male robin’s reddish-orange breast, both of which are striking and captivating.

Plants display colors to indicate safety or danger for eating.

Evolution has taught us by trial and error, which signals trust.

#4. Whirling worlds of glistening color.


In conclusion, it is interesting to note that the colors of the rainbow reflect on the chakras in reverse order, as per the old Hermetic saying: “As above, so below.” But when transposed on us, they are in the opposite order.

Consider this: the seven vibrant colors of the rainbow, so visible yet intangible, are intricately linked to the seven main chakras that run along our bodies.

These chakras, invisible to the human eye, are a potent force in our existence. They reside in the aura and are linked to the meridians, energy channels described in Traditional Chinese Medicine, and other ancient systems.

ChakrasVisualize these luminous spheres as colorful, spinning energy wheels resembling small whirlpools of energy. Each color, from Red to Violet, relates to and symbolizes a different aspect of our being. They are positioned from the root chakra to the crown center as if on an imaginary ladder.

Nature constantly amazes us with its alchemical ways. For example, the red chakras ground our auras with energy from the earth, harmonizing our auric fields with the sun’s radiance.
