Willpower is defined as a personal characteristic of self-discipline, having control of one’s self, and control of one’s conduct. You may be lacking willpower to keep yourself from over indulging in food, gambling, or alcohol. Sometimes we need more willpower and self-discipline to work harder at our job or school. We may even need more willpower to resist buying more than we need or to improve our impulse control. For needed increases in willpower, crystals can help.
To aid you in issues of willpower we suggest using scarlet colored crystals. Scarlet combines the energy of the pure red ray and the exuberance and joy of the orange in a precious gift of nature. Scarlet is the color of strength and vitality, both physical and spiritual. Use scarlet-colored crystals in efforts to overcome fear and improve self-reliance. They are the crystals of victory, success, and skill.
Scarlet Crystals Bring You Strength, Vitality, Willpower and Dedication
Willpower can be sought and obtained through lighter shades of scarlet crystals. Light scarlet crystals have an additional power: increasing willpower and dedication to a difficult mental effort. There are a great many temptations we wish to resist at one time or another. For many, excess weight is a constant battle. We seem to never be able to keep it off. If you are in need of focus and an ability to say no and really mean it, use a light scarlet crystal in your efforts. Among their many uses, the scarlet crystals are the Dieter’s Stone.
To give your willpower a boost in almost any area of your life, we suggest using Red Jasper. Jasper makes an excellent diet stone, lending emotional support and strength in self-discipline, as well as boosting physical energy levels. Its slow, steady vibration helps avoid extremes and encourages perseverance. It is also useful for long periods of fasting. Jasper is a remarkable talisman for cutting down or quitting smoking, and may assist in reducing one’s over-consumption of alcohol. It removes harmful toxins from the system over time, and helps release the emotional triggers that perpetuate the behavior.
A second crystal that is also very powerful in growing willpower is Scarlet Temple Lemurian crystals. These crystals are particularly useful in focusing our efforts to be a whole, balanced person when we are out of balance in an aggressive or destructive way. They are also very valuable in healing efforts focused on re-centering if the out of balance is an excess of the Yang or male elements and the need is for balance by bringing elements of the Yin to the environment.
Jasper when it possesses the scarlet 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. Jasper is a Seeker Transformer Crystal. 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.
Scarlet Temple Lemurian
The Scarlet Temple Lemurian crystals are used for aligning the crown chakra. The crown chakra is our gateway to the expanded universe beyond our bodies. It controls how we think, and how we respond to the world around us. It is the fountainhead of our beliefs. It is the source of our spirituality. It connects us to the higher planes of existence. It extends our energy beyond our body. It is the source of higher sources of information and universal energy and truth.
What Authors Say About Crystals
Michael Geinger suggests Hematite which is a memory enhancer and an aid to clarity of thought and control of stress.
Hematite encourages the ability to survive, in the sense of a permanent further development towards better conditions. It helps strengthen the will and makes us aware of unfulfilled desires. It bestows vitality and dynamism in our life.
Naisha Ahsian recommends Pyrite which is a well known talisman and meditation crystal.
Pyrite allows on to connect with the energy of the Earth and channel that energy through the body. It is excellent for use in manifestation, as it helps on take action on one’s ideas or concepts. It also aids in grounding higher knowledge into action. Pyrite is an ally in assisting one in taking action to create abundance in one’s life.
Robert Simmons advocates Marcasite which is an effective crystal for the chakras can help bring you into balance and increase your willpower.
Marcasite stimulates and integrates the three lowest chakras in the body, the root, sexual/creative and solar plexus, and it links them firmly with the Earthstar chakra below the feet. Through these three chakras, Marcasite works to optimize one’s life force and courage, sexual energy, creativity, willpower and mental clarity.
