Passion is what drives you in life. It is the force behind your motivation. It is the push behind the things we love. We have passion for our careers, our hobbies, and our loved ones. But sometimes, especially as we get older, that passion can die off. We need something to motivate us again, to drive us back to that passion we used to feel for things. If you are down or feeling low, if you want to feel more passion in your relationship, or more passion for your career, crystals can help! They can fill you with the fire you need to get your passion reignited in the direction you choose.
It is in the shades of red, that you will find the fiery passion you desire. Red is the color of passion, energy, and life. It motivates. It is a very strong colorâ€”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 Bring You Energy, Courage, Passion, and Love
In darker shades of red you will find passion, devotion, and achievement. In darker shades, red is tinted with brown or black. Here the power of the color ray is not muted but mixed with darker and more earthy, powerful overtones of brown or the power and mystery of black. Dark red stones are crystals of very hard, durable energy and quiet passion. Strong, deep feelings call for a strong, deep-red crystal. Dark red rays of influence have a wide variety of uses. The dark red stones are particularly useful for increasing devotion, and seeing the seriousness of life.
Garnet is said to have been one of the twelve stones in the Breastplate of the High Priest, and has been used as a sacred stone by the Native American Indians, the South American Indians, the Aztecs, the African tribal elders, and the Mayans. It acts with speed to expand one’s awareness due to the flash of lightening contained within, and enhances one’s internal fire to bring creative powers to implementation. Garnet provides a protective influence and a calming stable vitality during use. It is thought to heal emotional problems. Placed under a pillow, Garnet is reputed to alleviate bad dreams. Medicine men used it to cure mental depression. Garnet can act as a strong help to balance the energy system, stimulate desires and uplift your attitude.
Jasper, when it possesses the red ray of influence as Chestnut Jasper does, 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. Historically, Red Jasper was known as a stone of vibrancy and endurance, a talisman of warriors and a promoter of justice, protection, and life. 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.
Garnet cleanses and reenergizes the chakras. It revitalizes, purifies and balances energy, bringing serenity or passion as appropriate. It inspires love and devotion, balancing the sex drive and alleviating emotional disharmony.
Chestnut Jasper, with its Red Color Ray of Influence is associated with the First Chakra, the Base Chakra which is located at the base of the spine and radiating through the legs and feet. This is the grounding Chakra and deals with the health of the physical body.
Judy Hall references Ruby which imparts vigor to life.
Ruby encourages passion for life, improving motivation and setting realistic goals. This stone wants you to follow your bliss, promoting positive dreams and clear visualization. One of the stones of abundance, it aids in retaining wealth and passion.
Robert Simmons suggests Fire Agate which can stimulate physical energy.
Fire Agate puts one in touch with the zest of living, and with this, one experiences and increase in passion, an intensification of all emotions and reconnection with one’s deepest desires. It helps one find the courage to take risks in order to fulfill the inner promptings which call one more fully into passionate involvement in life.
Passion is what drives us to be. It is who we are and what we love. It pushes us and motivates us in our careers, hobbies, and relationships. Without passion you may feel down, depressed, and without purpose. Sometimes we lose our passion as we get older but there is hope to regain it! Red fiery crystals can bring back the passion you so desire. Dark red brings back your passion more than any other crystal, along with devotion and achievement. We suggest using dark red colored crystals such as Chestnut Jasper and Garnet. You can also try crystals other authors have recommended such as Ruby and Fire Agate.
