*Inspired by a trip to China*
The Chinese consider red to be a lucky color. Many doors are painted red before the Chinese New Year and in Feng Sui, a red door symbolizes the mouth of the home allowing chi to be drawn to the house. ... Also, it is believed that people would paint their front doors red to indicate their home was paid off.

Attracting Vibrations: Loyalty, Stability, Vitality, Prosperity, Patience, Tenacity
Affirmation: I am grounded, safe, and secure. I am stable, strong and healthy.
Understanding: The root chakra provides the foundation on which we build our life. It supports us in growing and feeling safe into exploring all the aspects of life. It is related to our feeling of safety and security, whether it’s physical or regarding our bodily needs or metaphorical regarding housing and financial safety. To sum it up, the first chakra questions are around the idea of survival and safety. The root chakra is where we ground ourselves into the earth and anchor our energy into the world.
Imbalanced: hard to feel safe in the world and everything looks like a potential risk. The desire for security dominates and can translate into concerns over the job situation, physical safety, shelter, health. A blocked root chakra may turn into behaviors ruled mainly by fear. On the same line, when the root chakra is overactive, fear might turn into greed and paranoia, which are extreme forms of manifestation of imbalance in the first chakra. Issues with control over food intake and diet are related to it.
Malfunctions: Anxiety, chronic fear, materialism, instability, eating disorders
