Red is the colour which relates to the first or root chakra. It is the seat of our existence on the physical plane, our will to live. Fed by fire energy from inside and outside ourselves, it is the recipient chakra for kundalini, the raw earth energy feeding our life force and assuring survival. It is connected with primal feelings and is the prime mover behind the fight or flight response, influencing our immune system, our energy, basic impulses, instincts and endurance. The first chakra receives its basic programming from our family. Through this programming we make decisions regarding our right and will to survive. Our earliest experiences are also recorded here, resulting in the awareness or repression of our most primal feelings. We can help to balance this chakra by cooking and cleaning in the home, sitting on the ground or walking barefoot and dancing.

Use the color red to grab attention and to get people to take action. Use red when you don't want to sink into the background. Use red to suggest speed combined with confidence and perhaps even a dash of danger. A little bit of red goes a long way. Small doses can often be more effective than large amounts of this strong color. Multiple shades of red and even pink or orange can combine for a cheerful palette.
