Red healing crystals evoke passion, strength, and determination. They encourage us to step into our personal power and take charge of our lives. The color red is an emotionally intense color, stimulating our most fundamental desires and needs. Red minerals can also help us to feel safe, grounded, and more connected to our physical body. They can help us feel more alive and awake by helping our energy to flow more freely. Red healing crystals remind us that it is a blessing to be alive and here now! Moreover, all of our wildest dreams are possible if we dare to seize the day and go after them. Colors are perceived on a very deep level which goes far beyond the simple mechanics of seeing. Colors are not simply constructs of mere physics, but are also capable of making us feel emotions. Color theorists and marketing executives have long known that some colors energize, while others radiate a sense of serenity. The colors we surround ourselves with can dramatically affect our thoughts, choices, and general mood. When selecting healing crystals the color itself should be consciously and carefully considered in addition to all the other aspects of the stone.
