Firedancer Red is a vibrant crimson.
Troubleshooting for people with Aura Cards
If you have a deck of Aura Cards and you find this colour a challenge to read, this section is for you!
This generally isn’t an easy colour to talk about with most people. Generally, if I sense a client is unable to explore sexual issues and/or power issues with me, I simply glide over the top of it and don’t delve too deep. There’s no point in pushing up against boundaries that won’t budge, or offending someone, and I have great respect for the privacy of others.
If a client is comfortable talking about their sex lives, this card can be a fantastic ice-breaker to get the conversation rolling. If not, (or if you have drawn this card for yourself and you can’t relate to the sexual side of it) you might like to explore the following:
*Kundalini energy: We have a potent sleeping energy at the base of our spine that awakens and rises up the spine, through the chakras, as we awaken and grow spiritually. Research, discuss, explore…. what is kundalini energy, and what does it mean to you? Visualise a red fire of light rising gently and slowly from your base chakra, winding its way upwards along your spine and slowly, carefully, gently awakening each energy centre as it rises. “I am balanced in the expression of my fire” is a useful mantra to use with this visualisation.
*Breaking rules and not being a people pleaser anymore. Explore issues to do with rules, breaking rules, individuality, approval from others, rebellion, and so on
*Teenagers, issues from your teenage years and your inner teenager. The card itself can represent any of these three.
*Taking risks. This colour will generally encourage us to take pretty crazy risks. If you tend to play it overly safe and stay in your comfort zones, this could be a good thing! But it’s worth exploring any tendency to leap before you look.
*Short-term gratification. This colour stimulates our desire for short-term gratification and dampens down our ability to honour our long term, deeper values. Are you compromising your deeper values for a quick fix or a brief flash of pleasure? What might you be risking?
*Frustration. In many people, this colour is blocked, or being held back. Think of it as primal, base-chaklra passion. It wants power and pleasure and uninhibited self-expression. We usually hold back on that because it isn’t socially acceptable to express, or because we have conflicting values….. consider what the costs are when it comes to self-control and ask yourself if their is a safe/safer way to acknowledge your fire and get your base needs met without hurting anyone or violating your deeper values.
About Firedancer Red
Firedancer Red sets you alight, dancing your fire awake, reigniting sexual passion and the urge to express yourself freely without guilt and the inhibition of social and religious rules. This colour can be a hunger for freedom of expression, material wealth or power, depending on the individual. Some simply want the freedom to have power over their own lives without others dictating to them. Others want to demonstrate or exercise their power or influence over others.
Firedancer Red can be a positive force of dynamic liberation. Without our fire, we are only half alive, tamed into pathetic submission by a need to please others and obtain their approval. Without our fire, we are partially repressed and tied up inside with ropes of guilt, judgment and moralistic stiffness. Without our fire, we are too tamed and the wildfire of our deeper spirit and power languishes like a captured wild horse with a badly broken spirit.
Being ‘good’ so we can receive love and approval from God, parents and society means we have to avoid being ‘bad’ so that we don’t feel guilty, judged and ashamed. We are often conditioned, especially if we are women, not to be angry, sexual, powerful or passionate because these things make us ‘bad’. Fire energies like anger and sexual passion are natural and vital to the well-being of a well-rounded, balanced individual. Repression of fire energy damages it and twists it into ugly shapes so that when it does finally come out, it comes out in ways which reinforce its negative image and further damage its reputation.
Unleashing the fire trapped within is no easy task. It may rise with a vengeance after long years of suppression and disapproval, seeking the freedom to burn in passionate lust, hungrily consume material wealth and status, wield power over others and break every rule it knows in order to stay free. When we first begin to set it free, its very hot to handle. Fire is extremely powerful and it takes a lot of practice to master a controlled burn. The trick is to allow your fire the freedom to express but keep it reined in and direct it into healthy pursuits that won’t do you or anyone around you any harm. Dance with your fire but don’t allow it to dominate.
Repressed fire can arise as a negative hunger which burns out of control and drives you to betray your own deeper values for a brief fling with short-term gratification. Eventually we learn that short-term gratification only goes so far; it doesn’t meet our deeper needs because of its fleeting, often shallow nature. Fire is an energy that can initially set us alight and bring us to life, but when we play with fire for too long and without enough care, we may find our fingers burned, or worse, that we have set loose a wildly destructive force.
