Dialoging with colors is an interesting journey. I have loved color all my life, but I never truly understood its influence until I took a two year course to become a Spiritual Guide & Healing Facilitator. During that course we were introduced to many ways to enhance well-being.
One of my greatest revelations was that everything is made of energy and that energy is in motion.
Your body needs certain energy frequencies that show up as color. When these frequencies slow down or are blocked this affects you on all levels. Our language suggests this. For example, you might say, “She’s green with envy or “He’s so blue” (sad or depressed). This means that the frequencies of green and blue are not vibrating properly. Something has interrupted the flow. You might think of it like a river. After a storm, there may be branches or debris that disrupt the flow. Too much water can cause the flow to be too powerful. Too little water can slow the river or even cause it to dry up in areas. So if your well-being is dependent on this flow of colorful energy, it’s important that you know when energy frequencies have been disrupted and how to bring them back into balance.
When you dislike or avoid a certain color this indicates that the color is not flowing properly. Something has disrupted it.
In this article, you will learn some of the indications that red is not flowing properly. From that, you can discover where red may be unbalanced in you. Then, you will be guided through a visualization to bring red back into balance.How Others Experience Your Energy When Red is Out of Balance
You affect people through the energy field around you. When red is out of balance, people around you feel uncomfortable. So, balance is important to you on two fronts: what you experience and how your energy affects others.What Red Can Tell You When red is not flowing, the most common experiences are:
- Lack of energy
- Actions are scattered and inefficient
The red energy is your vitality and drive. When it is out of balance with too much red or not enough red, you are running ahead of your energy or behind it. This affects your connection with the earth and with yourself. You become ungrounded. Just as electricity cannot travel through a wire unless it is grounded, your life force also needs to be able to connect to the grounding force of the earth in order for you to feel fully charged.
That’s where the anger and frustration come in. When red is out of balance, nothing seems to go right. The more you try to make things happen the way you want them to, the more this disrupted red energy gets in the way. It’s like trying to turn on a light with a broken circuit.A Story about Unbalanced Red Jim is worried. He just lost his job and his credit card bills are higher than usual. His mind races trying to figure out what to do.
He’s headed out the door to look for work. When he reaches into his pocket to start the car, his keys aren’t there. He always keeps them in that pocket! As he turns back to the house, he realizes the front door is locked. Luckily his neighbors have an extra key. Finally, he gets back in the house. Twenty minutes later, he finds his keys on the sink in the bathroom. He takes a deep breath knowing he is rattled. His mind just won’t stop racing. His sits for a minute. He feels exhausted like someone let air out of his tires.He pushes himself to his feet knowing he has to get a new job. Your Experiences with Red Since you chose red as the color you like least, there is some imbalance in this color in your energy field which needs to be transformed. Which of the suggested experiences with unbalanced red sound familiar to you? Transforming Unbalanced Red Energy
As you can see from Jim’s story, his red energy is disrupted. He only knows to push on trying to solve his dilemma. Let’s look at another way you and Jim might shift your energy.
Red by itself can become too much or too little depending on what you are experiencing in your life. In other words what happens from day to day can throw you off balance. You are then seeing the situation from one angle that is limited by your experience.
In order to reach an “aha” that offers a new perspective, your viewpoint has to broaden. Color offers a simple way to change your energy and shift what you believe and what you experience.
Focus on something in your life that would indicate an imbalance in red. As you do the following visualization, you will consciously bring red and green into your energy field. You are asking these colors to transform the energy that is stuck in one point of view. Imbalanced red can begin to change as green opens the heart. This changes how you see the situation. You become the observer so that new ways to resolve what feels chaotic begin to arise.
That’s why I created the system of transforming energy called Complementary Color Therapy. Here you will experience a bit of this kind of balancing process.Experiencing Balance in Red Approach this visualization as if you were dreaming. Your mind does not need to make sense of it.
* Take a few deep breaths. Allow yourself to relax with each breath.
Imagine you are in a beautiful garden. Ahead of you, red tulips dance in the sun. There is an open grassy spot in the middle of the tulips with a pathway to reach it. Sit on the grass in the midst of these red tulips. Breathe in the red color. Feel it. Perhaps you will even taste red or smell red. Just be with whatever experience comes.
Tell red you are here to ask for its help. You want it to partner with green in order to bring its frequency into balance in your body and energy field. Wait until you know that red has agreed to help you.
Focus now on the green grass you are sitting on. Breathe in the green color. Notice how it seeps into your body along with the red.
Let green know that you need its help. Ask if it will partner with red to bring balance to red’s frequency. Wait until you feel that green has agreed to help you. Observe how the two colors meet and begin to transform your energy.
However that happens is what is just right for you. Notice anything that seems to be changing. Don’t analyze it. Just notice what you feel.
When you feel the colors have calmed the chaotic red energy, they can go back to where they naturally belong in your body and energy field.
Thank both colors for helping you. Begin to walk out of the garden.Take several deep breaths.
Begin to come back into this moment. Notice the chair you are sitting in. Take another deep breath. When you are ready, open your eyes and look at your hands so that you will be fully present. You may feel something right away or you may notice changes over time. Take notes so you can be fully aware of what happens.Finding Balance with Other Colors
Now that you have experienced what it means to dislike or avoid a color, you might like to learn about the other 5 colors and what happens when they are not balanced.
Experiencing the visualizations for these colors is always helpful to create a fully balanced set of frequencies in your body and energy field. This allows you to stay healthy and to recover quickly from any imbalances that may come up.
