Color plays a major role in setting and stimulating up of mind and the emotions to a condition of healing and well-being.
We all responds to color. We do not paint bedrooms in bright, flashy reds or yellows, because these colors tend to stimulate the body and inhibit relaxation and sleep whereas blue is often associated with cold, while red tends to conjure up thoughts of soothing warmth.
Before examining color and its healing implications, we must address a very important concept: that of cause and effect. Thus, any healing technique which deals only with the aura or the energy field of the individual tends to accomplish one thing and gives him or her an added boost of energy. That energy boost then allows that person to heal internally for greater activity.
Red is called "The Great Energizer" and "The Father of Vitality." Red is warm, vital, heating. It loosens, opens up clogs, releases stiffness and constrictions. It is excellent for areas that have become stiffened or constricted.Red links with and stimulates the root chakra, at the base of the spine, causing the adrenal glands to release adrenalin. This results in greater strength. Red causes hemoglobin to multiply, thus increasing energy and raising body temperature. It is excellent for anemia and blood-related conditions.
