The color red is stimulating and energizing. It empowers, uplifts, and motivates. Red brings us courage, strength, stability and security. It can be helpful for overcoming tiredness and lethargy, for stimulating low blood pressure, and boosting sluggish circulation. Avoiding red for those who have high blood pressure, nervousness, and anxiety is strongly suggested. Because red stimulates the Base or Root Chakra located at the base of the spine, it triggers the adrenal glands to release adrenalin. This results in providing greater strength. Also, red light causes hemoglobin corpuscles to multiply, thus increasing energy, raising body temperature, and helping the body fight disease.
