Ruby is not a crystal to show-off with. Ruby is a crystal to treasure, keep for yourself and use it quietly. The best way to work with ruby is by wearing a delicate necklace with a ruby stone that falls exactly above your heart. Ask the crystal to help you follow your passions, every morning when you put it on. Spend some time with it in silence and visualise yourself doing the work you love. Stay there, keep the image in your heart and go with your day.
Simple rituals to use red crystals for motivation
1.Set an intention
How to set an intention with crystals
To get to the core of your intention you need to be clear on what you really need: do you need more energy? Do you need more motivation? Do you need to let go of a harmful habit? Do you need more confidence? Do you need to release fear? When you answered yes, you know that this is your intention.
2.Programme your crystal for motivation, energy, action
Choose a supportive crystal according to your intention and program your crystal with your intention.
How to program your crystals?
There are many ways to programme crystals, but I always like to choose something quick and easy. You don’t need to spend a huge amount of time with crystal programming. You can simply spend a couple of minutes in a short meditation while you hold the crystal in your hand and visualise your intention or simply say your intention out loud.
3. Use your crystal on a daily basis
How to use crystals for inspired action to reach your goals?
This should also be easy, but you need to be consistent. Keep the crystal on your desk, on your altar, in your pocket, or your bag, meditate with it, place it on your body on the lower belly or on one of your legs to heal your root chakra, and make your crystal practice an active part of your life.
Remember, as in any healing practice: intention and consistency is key.
4. Journaling for motivation and action with your chosen crystal
Crystals can help you access parts of your unconscious in a wonderful way, only if you ask them.
How to journal with crystals
As with crystal programming or setting intentions, crystal journaling is all about getting clear on what you want to get out of the practice. Do you want to make an action plan that is effective and works for you? Ask this exact question and write it down on top of a new journal page. Then hold the crystal in your hand, close your eyes and ask the crystal the same question. Stay with it in silence for a while, then take your pen and start writing whatever comes into your mind as a response to your question.
The same technique applies for other things you want to achieve, for example:
- you need more energy – ask this question: What do I need to do, or stop doing to raise my energy levels?
- you need more motivation – ask this question: What motivates me in my work to be able to keep going when things go difficult?
- you need more courage and less fear – ask this question: What scares me in this situation? Is this fear real? Is it my fear or anyone else’s fear? Do I believe it?
