Moving Forward

Drive gets us through life, it gets things done. We are driven as a species to want to succeed. Sometimes, however, we may begin to lose focus and therefore drive. Life and its obstacles can get in the way quite often. Especially if we experience any sort of mental illness such as depression, drive is something than can easily be lost. The good news is, it can just as easily be found again with the help of crystals. We need drive in our lives, it keeps us moving when we want to sit down for a while. It helps us get promotions, follow our dreams, and pass exams. If we aren’t moving forward we are stagnant, drive keeps us propelling through the waterways of life. Even if your drive has been lost for a while, with the healing power of crystals mixed with their potent and energetic vibrations, your drive can once again be returned to you.

When something needs drive, passion, and focus in the crystal world, we turn to none other than bright and fiery red. Red is the color of desire, energy, and life. It motivates. It is a very strong color, the color of fire and blood. It is emotionally intense and affects humans by raising their blood pressure and speeding up their metabolism. Red is a call to action, a battle cry, and a sign of warning. It excites us, raises our enthusiasm, and gives us energy. Red crystals are used when the situation needs passion: active, involved, energetic action. Red empowers, uplifts, and engulfs. It cures apathy. It gets things done. Red is action and drive.

Red Crystals Bring You Energy, Courage, Passion, and Love

If you are suffering from a lack of power, listlessness, or a low emotional state, you need more red. Like the scarlet ray, the red ray brings us a self-confidence built on fearlessness. When the need is for action without hesitation or self-doubt, use a crystal with a fiery ray of bright red. Red colored crystals also bring us increased energy, courage, inner strength, drive, determination, and self-worth. In essence it is the perfect crystal color for drive. Red crystals are associated with the Base Chakra which is located at the base of the spine and controls the energy for kinesthetic feeling and movement. It is the foundation of physical energy and spiritual energy for the body. When it is physically out of balance the symptoms will manifest themselves as lethargy, low levels of activity, low enthusiasm, and a need for constant stimulation.

When you’re looking to gain or improve your drive, there might not be anything quite like Red Jasper, the stone of endurance. Historically, Red Jasper was known as a stone of vibrancy and endurance, a talisman of warriors and a promoter of justice, protection, and life. It staunched the blood of wounds, stirred the pulse, and increased fertility. Today, Red Jasper is still known as the Stone of Endurance, a gentle, but vital, stimulator of chi, or Life Force, bringing physical strength and energy, stamina, focus and determination. Its steady frequency calms the emotional body creating a lasting, stable energy for improving health or overcoming illness, setting goals and following through to completion, facing unpleasant tasks and having the courage to rectify wrongs. Red Jasper can also re-activate a passion for living when one is feeling blue or unemotional, apathetic, or spiritually defunct, and is commonly used to spark sexual or creative energies. It assists in identifying one’s personal ideas and beliefs about sexual expression or orientation, and helps release shame or guilt around these issues.

Sphalerite, when it possesses the red ray of influence, is a crystal of physical energy, vitality, and protection. It is a healing crystal of the base chakra, a powerful fire element used in the south area of a home, and used in the devotions to several Goddesses. This red ray can be found in Ruby Blende Sphalerite. Ruby Blende Sphalerite is a mineral of strength, vitality and grounding. It is used to balance and ground the higher chakras with the lower chakra energies. They are also an is a Enhancer Mirror crystals. Enhancers are the “building block” crystals. Their internal structure of blocks builds up perfect crystal lattices that can help us focus our efforts to build on our successes and enhance our lives. Whereas the Seeker system produces crystals and minerals that aid in new beginnings, the Enhancers of the isometric system aid us in building on our successes and achievements. Mirror crystals are excellent aids in knowing yourself, as they help reveal things that you consciously didn’t realize. They reflect you as you are, not as you normally see yourself. They reveal that which is hidden. All of these factors are very important is understanding what lost your drive in the first place and then giving you the passion and motivation to get it back.

All Jaspers connect to the Earth and may be placed on the Base Chakra to stabilize and energize the physical body. Laying it over each chakra in turn, will cleanse, boost and realign the chakras and aura, balancing yin and yang energies as well as aligning the physical, emotional and mental bodies with the etheric realm.

What Authors Say About Crystals

What Other Authors Say



Michael Gienger recommends 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.

In Summary

We are naturally driven to succeed as a species. We want to learn more, move forward, and discover new things. When that natural drive is lost, it can wreak havoc on our lives. We can become listless, apathetic, and/or depressed and lose our drive completely. Thankfully, we have the positive and passionate red rays to bring us energy and breathe life back into us. When looking to increase or find your drive, we suggest fiery red colored crystals such as Red Jasper and Ruby Blende Sphalerite. You can also try crystals that other authors have recommended such as Apatite.
