Crystals for Confidence + Self-Empowerment
We’ve all encountered moments in our life that bring us down and cause us to question our true potential. For some, it’s easy to brush off a small defeat and move on to the next challenge. For others, the time it takes to bounce back after a failure—small or large—can be much more long lasting than one would hope. One of the consequences we face after a let down is damage to our sacral chakra. A person’s sacral chakra is a powerful part of one’s mind, body, and spirit that aligns one with the world around them. When your sacral chakra is thriving, it offers you an uplifting boost of energy, fosters your compassionate nature, provides guidance, and helps you maintain emotional stability. This is why it is vital to staying confident in pursuing our passions. Oftentimes, if your sacral chakra is not balanced, it can cause negative effects in your life such as insecurity, self-doubt, and self-disapproval, which can inhibit you from accomplishing a set goal or believing in yourself to get a job done.
If you find that your sacral chakra has been thrown out of whack and you feel as if your confidence is at an all time low, then we have a crystal formula to raise your self-confidence, self-worth, and self-empowerment. When you acquire a strong sense of self, you are able to reach your full potential and be the best version of yourself. Here are some of our favorite crystals for confidence that can help you rebalance yourself—because when your sacral chakra is working in your favor, you can run the world!

Here are a few simple ideas for how you can incorporate your crystals into your everyday routine that will bring you clarity and offer you any missing confidence, self-assurance, and self-empowerment that is essential to pursing your dreams!
- Wear your crystals around your neck, allowing them to fall close to your heart. Let your crystal be a personal talisman to help remind you that you’re worthy. Be cosmically confident in everything that you do.
- Start your morning by connecting with your crystals for confidence through a simple meditation. Find a quiet space and sit comfortably on the ground, connecting yourself to the Earth. Hold your crystals in the palms of your hand or place it on the ground in front of you.

While it can be far too easy to lose sight of everything you’ve gone though in order to get where you are today, the most important thing to do is to find the courage within to leave the past behind and keep looking forward. In order to do so, you have to let go of everything that went wrong in the past and instead focus on everything that has gone right. Your self-confidence, sense of self-worth, and constant self-empowerment is essential in promoting your success. Always remember to stay true to who you are, and keep steady as you face new challenges. There may still be a few defeats along the way, but so long as you stay mindful, nothing can diminish you inner confidence or deter you from pursuing your passion.
