Read these descriptions and symptoms below to find out if you need to TUNE UP or TUNE DOWN or TURN ON your root chakra.

·        Too much red and we tend to lose our temper quickly, become agitated, angry, overbearing, demanding, un-nerving, oppressive or even violent. May also be greedy, egotistical, domineering, bossy, addicted to wealth, high strung, hyperactive, addicted to self, dishonest, cunning.
(The compliment of Red is Green, so if you need to tone down you raging passions, have a problem with temper or anger, or have trouble getting a hold of your emotions, add green to your surroundings.)

·        Too little red and we become fearful, lethargic, cautious, whiny and manipulative. We can't reach our goals, lack self confidence, feel unloved, not grounded, suicidal, weak willed, sexually inadequate, frustrated, alienated, separate, overly cautious, power conscious, possessive, needing outside approval, or craving excitement. If you’re tired or feel exhausted, introduce more red into your world. Energy levels are instantly heightened.

Qualities are grounded, centered, belonging, pride, fully alive, able to trust, independent, determined, trusts in self and others, secure, patient, constant, ambitious, passion, commitment, energizing, mobilizing, warming. As a general rule, red stones offer protection, courage, vitality, stamina, and energy.

·        Blocked: When blocked we experience a lack of energy and vitality, depression, anxiety, fear, anger and frustration.

Add RED color gemstones to your collection to increase enthusiasm, be more interesting to other people, boost energy, increase confidence to go after your dreams, and increase protection from fears and anxieties.

Wear the color RED when you have a job that must get done, when you need a lot of energy, when you need or want to feel confident and in control on a job interview, and when you want to feel alive, vibrant, sexy and desirable.

Red Chakra Keywords: passion, determination, assertive, daring, energetic, action, devotion, enthusiasm, impulsive, courage, protection, power, spontaneity, warmth, heat, blood, fire, love, excitement and aggression.

The most effective way to add the power of red or correct a balance in the 1st Chakra is thru adding natural red crystals and tones to your everyday wardrobe. For direct healing, the jewellery can be placed on the Root Chakra itself.
