The color red corresponds to our root chakra. It represents themes of survival, fight or flight responses, and identity. In Disney’s Snow White, Snow White’s life is compromised by a red apple. Little Red Riding Hood: the main character is cloaked in red symbolizing her personal development of self-awareness and survival.
Who am I? What is identity?
The common response is to list the emotions we gravitate towards. Our emotions are fluid and always changing. Emotions are signals, not our identity. They don't define us.
Our identity refers to who we are in all time and space experiences. Who am I no matter what?
When I see red in a reading, it tells me a person is going through the process of figuring this out. They're working through grounding their energy to connect with who their soul is on Earth. No matter how many lifetimes we've been through, the constant is our soul.
Red refers to authority as in, who has the authority? When I'm feeling uncertain in a situation I'll ask, who is the dominant authority? If it is anyone but me, it means I need to take a closer look at what I'm doing and why. This is important because if someone else has the authority, then we're depending outside of our self for fulfillment, satisfaction, and joy. No one is responsible for anyone else's happiness but their own. That is simply because we cannot control another person's actions. Life is all about choices. What choice will you make and for whose good will you serve?
I also see red and the root chakra as foundational work. I see people work through their chakras in order like building blocks. You can work through them any order you want but the most resilient building starts with a stable foundation.
Red is about self-awareness. I'm writing about authority and identity that are constant and infinite but are you conscious of it's place in your life? It's always there and you are already living it in some aspects but do you know what it is? People turn red when they get embarrassed or angry. It's a physical expression of an emotional reaction to confronting a part of their self. We turn red because of an attachment to a perspective that tells us it's good or bad rather than a perspective that compassionately teaches us from the aspect. Investigate your response with wonder. It will bring you closer to understanding yourself.
To support your own self-discovery, wear red, decorate with red, and eat red foods.
I used to get a ton of relationship/love questions. When will I find a partner? Spirit always answered with starting with the self. Find yourself first. Love yourself first. Make yourself happy first. This raises your vibration so that you can find someone that matches the energy of your best self. If you find yourself going through partners, it is because they’re not an energetic match. That is a whooooole other blog post so join my mailing list to follow.
