Grounding ourselves with red

The colour of the base or root chakra.

What better time to feel grounded than during this time of the year
when all can seem frenzied and stressful.

just a moment
and contemplate the colour we call red.
This is the colour of  warmth and energy and enthusiasm.

encourages action and confidence
and provides a sense of protection from fears and anxiety.

Looking at the way things flow
and letting ourselves
go with this natural movement
and enjoying the peaceful state of effortlessness.

Red Jasper
is a strong securing gemstone
that gives stability
and is said to promote physical energy
and balance the emotional energy in the body.
Take a pause
and take in some red!
