Curing Self-Pity


Climbing Back Up

We often hear phrases such as “what a pity” or “such a pity”, but what is the true definition of pity? The feeling of sorrow and compassion caused by the suffering and misfortunes of others.” We have all definitely felt sorrow or empathy for others in their times of need. What happens though, when that pity turns inward? If we look at the extended definition it tells us self-pity is the, “state of mind of an individual in an adverse situation who has not accepted the situation and does not have the confidence nor competence to cope with it.” So that empathy, sorrow, and compassion you feel for others can manifest in quite awful ways within ourselves. This is why it is so very important to find a way out of the deep ditches of self-pity. In order to be able to get up and move on, you must first lift up your head and open your eyes. There is a way back up where you deserve to be. If you are suffering from debilitating self-pity, we suggest trying healing crystals to strength your head and your heart.

Ruby is to be carried or worn to provide a focus for Universal Life Force to enter your spirit and to also overcome exhaustion and lethargy. It stimulates circulation and amplifies energy and vitality to the whole system. Ruby also sustains and protects those with sensitive natures and distorted views of themselves or others. It overcomes fears of being “ugly” or unloved, and is particularly empowering for those who hold excess weight in the body in order to ground in the physical world. It releases destructive emotional holds, and is a powerful stone for developing a more loving attitude toward oneself and the physical body. Ruby allows the sharing of loving energy despite past hurts, bringing up anger or negative energy for transmutation. It gives the strength to rise from martyrdom and choose whether or not to dwell in anguish, distress, or suffering, and encourages a positive and more courageous state of mind.

Michael Gienger recommends Epidote which can be used to help someone injured by either physical or mental trauma.

Epidote lifts the emotions and dissolves sadness, sorrow, self-pity, and grief.

In Summary

Pity in itself is never a positive emotion to begin with. Even if it is well placed it makes you feel bad and can bring you negative energy and emotion. When that pity is internalized and becomes self-pity though, it becomes even hard. Self-pity is like a ditch that you unintentionally keep digging deeper and it can be difficult to crawl out of. However, you can use the strength, willpower, and vitality that scarlet colored crystals bring you to cure your self-pity and help you begin to see the other side of the ditch. We recommend using dark scarlet colored crystals such as Red Spinel and Ruby. You can also try crystals other authors have suggested such as Epidote.
