Crystals for Apathy


Curing Apathy with Crystals

Apathy is a sneaky feeling. It seems to hit you all at once and it can take a while before you notice it. At first you may just feel tired or unhappy. You just don’t feel like doing certain things that you used to. What exactly is apathy? It is defined as a lack of interest, enthusiasm, or concern. It often goes hand in hand with depression, but it can sometimes come up all on its own. It’s a debilitating feeling too. The things that once brought you happiness, seem to be a chore, or even worse, bring you no feelings at all. Apathy can be a slippery slope to begin falling down. The best thing you can do is recognize it and then make a conscious effort to work against it. Crystals work very well against apathy. They can slowly begin to heal you from the inside out and bring the strong vibrations of caring, happiness, and strength to aid you in carrying on.

Scarlet Crystals for Apathy

Scarlet crystals bring you strength, vitality, willpower, and dedication. If you take the passionate rays of red and mix them with the pure joy of orange, you are left with scarlet. Scarlet is a gift to help with apathy and depression. It gives you the passion and energy you need to pick yourself back up and the joy and exuberance you desire to find happiness in things once again.

Fire energy is the energy of enthusiasm, warmth, brightness, illumination and activity. It is Yang in nature. It is the energy of heat, action, emotion, and passion.

What Other Crystal Authors Recommend

Judy Hall recommends Carnelian which is is an ancient amulet of luck.

"Carnelian grounds you and anchors you in the present reality. A stabilizing stone with high energy, it is excellent for restoring vitality and motivation, and for stimulating creativity. It gives courage, promotes positive life choices, dispels apathy, and motivates for success in business and other matters."

Michael Gienger suggests Apatite which is a stone that helps us seek balance and flexibility.

"Apatite helps with apathy. It encourages liveliness, helps with exhaustion, particularly if periods of extreme activity are followed by complete lack of activity, and also reduces irritability and aggression. It also eases sorrow, anger, and lack of incentive and helps to turn our attention to happier circumstances."



When apathy has clouded your normally active mind and slowly seeped around the joy you used to find in life, let the energy and joy of deep scarlet red crystals pull you back to the other side. You can make it through and find the happiness and vitality you once used to possess.

We specifically recommend Red Jasper and Red Spinel to ease you through these tough times. You can also try crystals that other authors suggest such as Apatite and Carnelian.
