What is Red Feather Wellness?
The color Red symbolizes the fire element, which is a vital force that manifests to assist us in purging impurities and toxicity from our lives (people, situations, attitudes, behaviors, unhealthy generational patterns, etc.)
Our inner Fire can be activated to unleash our innate healing powers to assist us in purifying, releasing, transforming, passionately recreating, and elevating our body, mind, and spirit.
Our Ancient Ancestors knew that in order to maintain health and inner peace that our mind, heart, body, and spirit must be clean, nurtured, and light as a Feather. The feather also represents the air element, covering protection, Truth and BALANCE.
