Emily Dickinson once wrote, "One need not be a chamber to be haunted." And it is true. We all, at one point in our life, experience a moment of incredible sadness or absolute despair. It is said that time can heal all wounds. While this may be the case, during and after those times we can feel haunted. Our guards are down and we feel weak and drained. When those moments happen what we could use more than anything is emotionally strength, something to help pull us through the other side when we are feeling low. It should be no surprise that the color of love and passion, red, can give us the emotional strength we need to carry on.
As stated above, red is the color of love and passion, but also the color of strength. It is a very strong color, the color of fire and blood. It is emotionally intense and motivating. Red is a call to action, a battle cry, and a sign of warning. It excites us, raises our enthusiasm, and gives us energy. 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.
Use Red Crystals
Red Crystals Bring You Energy, Courage, Passion, and Love
While red itself comes in different shades, when seeking emotional strength, there is nothing more powerful than the bright vibrant rays of pure red. Red crystals can enhance passion, help you develop courage, grow inner strength, build up drive and determination, as well as increase your sense of self-worth. All of these bits and pieces are essential in building your emotional strength which is one of the reasons red crystals are such powerful stones. It should not be overlooked that red crystals also bring fire energy. 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; of ideas, of concepts, and sex.
One of the most useful red crystals you can find is Red Jasper. Red Jasper is marvelous for clearing the mind during meditation, prayer or contemplation. Its high spiritual energy increases focus and endurance during long ceremonies or practices, and is helpful in establishing new spiritual disciplines. It is an excellent stone for shamanic journeying and astral travel, and provides vivid dream recall.
A valuable stone of protection, Red Jasper guards against physical threats and assists in situations of danger. Keep in the car to prevent accidents, theft or road rage, and place in the home or office to absorb electromagnetic and environmental pollution and radiation. Wear two or three items of Red Jasper jewelry or a pouch of three small tumbled stones to shield against psychic attack or when working with spirit rescue, potentially violent or psychologically disturbed individuals.
Red Tiger's Eye is another stone to consider for Emotional Strength
This Tiger Eye brings us a deeper and more pronounced sense of devotion and commitment, providing us with a mature enthusiasm and the ability to share a lifelong commitment of care and love. As an emotional support stone it is comforting and nurturing for your soul
It is also a power stone that can provide you with the power to lead projects, organizations, and efforts to success.
Not to be overlooked, this is also a powerful talisman for achieving great satisfaction in your life.
Red Jaspers are SeekerTransformer Crystals. Seeker Transformers are talismans used when the desire is to find a way to transform a part of one's life to a more desirable state. Seekers are used when we need some help to find a new path or new approach. You might try massage with a Red Jasper wand. Used it freely to bring an emotional comfort as you relax your muscles.
Tiger Eye quartz is a SeekerTransformer Crystal. Seeker Transformers are talismans used when the desire is to find a way to transform a part of ones life to a more desirable state. Quartz is the most common Seeker Transformer.
You might find using Red Tiger's Eye each month when the Moon visits the Mansion of the Sacred Flames will be helpful in building your emotional strength. The Mansions of the Moon are the 28 divisions of the Zodiac that the moon transits in its 28-day orbit of the Earth. The moon brings a special energy to us from each mansion.

You will be quickly energized and again ready to “get on with life.” Sometimes the physical energy is needed when you are emotionally drained. Don't skip this part.
What Authors Say About Crystals
Judy Hall suggests Agate which will use the power of the moon goddess to help you unlock the secrets of your dreams.
Emotionally, this crystal overcomes negativity and bitterness of the heart. It heals inner anger, fostering love and the courage to start again. It is useful for any kind of emotional trauma. It creates a sense of safety and security by dissolving internal tension.
Naisha Ahsian recommends Pink Tourmaline which is primarily used as a talisman to aid efforts to grow physically stronger and to aid in efforts to secure a sound financial future.
Pink Tourmaline is a powerful emotional balancer and cleanser. It is one of the strongest stones for alleviating stress and the emotional imbalances that can stem from that state.
Michael Gienger advocates Epidote is used as a pocket talisman or worn in a pendant to give yourself protection from physical harm when engaged in dangerous pursuits.
Epidote encourages recovery and regeneration after severe illness or in cases of great exhaustion caused by overwork, stress, and painful experiences. It lifts the emotions and dissolves sadness, sorrow, self-pity, and grief. Epidote also helps overcome frustrations caused by failure and teaches us not to devaluate ourselves because of mistakes we have made.
There are times in everyone's life that we need to gain emotional strength. Even who we may perceive to be the strongest people in our lives will need a boost of inner strength at one point or another. Red crystals bring the rays of passion, strength, and energy back into your being. They can help pick you back up when you are feeling your lowest.
