The color of the root chakra is red which means its energy center spins at a frequency of the color red. Because everything in the universe vibrates at a particular frequency, colors vibrate at their own unique frequencies. The color red can be used to heal the root chakra energy center.
Visualize the color red in the tailbone/coccyx area which is the location of the root chakra. In your mind’s eye, try to capture the actual color clearly permeating the entire root area. Visualize it from the front of your body, moving through the inside of your body, and then radiating to the back of your body. Allow the color to provide a sense of warmth or tingling throughout the area. Some individuals find using an object such as a chakra stone (available through my web site) is helpful in tapping into the energy center. Because we live in the physical world, touching or holding the object aids in imagining the chakra’s energy center. Let your imagination play with the color . . . see the details of the color, how the chakra spins, the exact area the red color spreads to, and try to identify any feelings or sensations in the area. Stay with this level of concentration while holding it in your mind’s eye. In this way, you are healing from the inside out because it allows you to repair the chakra through spontaneous healing.
