Crystals for Inner Strength
Inner strength is a trait that is learned and build over time. Deep down we all have inner strength but it needs to be grown and nourished in order to flourish and work for us the way we need. In tough situations at home, work, or with our love life, we need inner strength in order to be able to tell people no, stand up for ourselves, or to keep from being mowed over by robust personalities. If you are looking to increase your inner strength and power, crystals are sure to help. They have powerful vibrations from the earth, vibrations of strength, influence, and confidence that can radiate through you and increase the areas you need assistance with.
When we’re looking to increase or inner strength, there is nothing quite as powerful as the color red. Red is the color of passion, 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. The passion and energy red crystals bring are the perfect recipe for inner strength.
Use Red Crystals
Red Crystals Bring You Energy, Courage, Passion, and Love
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. 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.
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 is a powerful stone to increase your inner power and strength. 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.
Another stone that help build inner strength is the beautiful red Garnet. Garnet is a powerful energizing and regenerative stone. It balances, strengthens and protects. Garnet is useful to have in a crisis, particularly in situations where there seems to be no way out or where life has fragmented. It fortifies, activates, and strengthens the survival instinct, bringing courage and hope into those situations. Garnet sharpens your perceptions of yourself and other people. It dissolves ingrained behavior patterns that are no longer serving you, and helps you let go of obsolete ideas. Garnet removes inhibitions and taboos, opening up the heart and bestowing self-confidence.
Red Jasper is a stone of empowerment, bringing strength to resist emotional domination by others, and the courage to overcome domestic violence.
