Enduring with Crystals
According to Merriam-Webster, the word “endurance” is defined as “the ability to withstand hardship or adversity; the ability to sustain a prolonged stressful effort or activity.”
The same source defines the word “endure” as, “To remain firm under suffering or misfortune without yielding.”
The bottom line of course, is that endurance isn’t easy, but it is usually worth it, because it so often takes very hard work and gritty persistence to hang in there long enough to get what you’ve got to have.
Sir Winston Churchill, who knew a thing or two about endurance, had a few words to say on the subject: “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
“If you are going through hell, keep going.” Here is a list of powerhouse gemstones to help you do just that. When you meditate on any of these crystals to program them, call upon the great protectors of Spirit to help you use them, for they are the same stones used by ancient warriors who trusted in the power and inspiration endowed by these gemstones and their angels. Now used by many modern-day athletes, leaders, moms, teachers, students, people who are working hard to achieve their goals or are dealing with other stressful situations, and anyone who needs a boost of strength, these are the best crystals for endurance.
Known as the “Stone of Endurance,” and the “Supreme Nurturer,” Red Jasper is a talisman of Warriors. It can be used to enhance physical endurance, as well as emotional and mental stamina, and is favored by many athletes. It is thought to help with self-protection, self-confidence, and boost a positive outlook. Associated with the Root chakra, this reddish-brown crystal is stimulating to the chi, or Life Force, increasing energy, courage, determination, and anywhere you need strength to persist.
The flecks of deep red in this dark green crystal inspired its name of Bloodstone, or as it is also known, the “Stone of Courage and Bravery.” Aligned with the first four chakras, the Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, and Heart, this powerful crystal helps you bravely endure the strongest hurricanes, be they physical or emotional. It is said to help you experience greater love for yourself and others. It is thought to bestow the ability to make wise decisions in the face of dangerous situations, along with protection and courage to help you withstand and overcome all manner of negative conditions.
Associated with the Sacral and Solar Plexus chakras, the fiery golden-orange Amber, called the “Gold of the Sea,” is believed to help you to trust your gut and strengthen your intuitive feelings, and absorb pain, be it of the body or mind. Not precisely a gemstone, this fossilized tree resin carries real power in helping those struggling with depression and any desire to self-harm. It is thought to encourage cheerfulness, endurance, confidence, and trust, in addition to giving protection while using your psychic abilities.
This healing stone, known as the “Seer Stone,” comes in a variety of colors, including a colorless type. It also comes in golden yellow, light peach, deep emerald green, many soft greens, blues, pinks, and intense reds, so you can find a color that aligns with almost every chakra. All Beryl gemstones are said to help you overcome extreme stress and difficult obstacles, as well as help calm nervous anxiety, and enhance courage, bravery, vitality, and endurance. They are often used in scrying.
The orange-red brilliance of the Carnelian is aligned with the Root and Sacral chakras. Called the “Stone of Leadership,” it is thought to inspire confidence, motivation, endurance, and courage, and is often used by artists and singers to help them become even more passionately creative. It is known as a stabilizing stone that helps restore your vital life force, and protects you from anger, whether it’s yours or someone else’s, and assists you in overcoming abusive situations.
This green crystal, known as the “Stabilizer Stone,” often has other sections of colors encased within it of yellow, black, red, white, brown, or blue. A favorite of gardeners, this gemstone is known for its qualities of stabilization, grounding, and supportive growth. Associated with the Heart chakra, it carries loving Earth Power and is thought to assist you in steadily enduring anything life throws at you. It is believed to help you persevere with the calm, grounded confidence of Mother Earth as you concentrate and focus on attracting, and gaining greater financial prosperity and business success.
