Crystals for Confidence & Self Love

Heather Askinosie|August 04, 2016

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—big or small—can take longer than one would like. 

A potential negative effect we may 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 with crystals for confidence. 

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 self confidence that can help you rebalance yourself—because when your sacral chakra is working in your favor, you can run the world!

How to Use Your Crystals for Confidence

Once you’ve found a crystal that speaks to your needs, there are many ways to use it in order to raise your self-confidence, self-worth, and self-empowerment. At any point in time, you may find yourself on the verge of self-destruction, but it is so important to remember how strong you truly are and how capable you are of succeeding in the goals you set. 

Of course the options are limitless, and we encourage you to find ways that are best suited for your lifestyle to utilize your crystals. By connecting with your crystals for confidence, you give yourself the opportunity to realize your highest potential and provide the strength and vitality to reach it. 

Here are a few simple ideas for how you can incorporate your crystals for self confidence into your everyday routine that will bring you clarity and offer you any missing confidence, self-assurance, self-love, and self-empowerment that is essential to pursuing 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.
  • Place your crystal on your office desk at work, or throughout the rooms in your home to serve as a visual reminder that you are worthy and confident.
  • Carry your crystals for confidence with you in your purse or pocket to connect with their energy throughout the day. Each time you touch your crystal, visualize it bringing you luck and raising your spirits and self-worth.

Crystals For Self Love 

Self-love plays an integral role in how you view and feel about yourself. Choosing gemstones that lift your spirits and fill you with high vibrations of love and positive energies can be a great use of crystals for confidence and self love. 

Self-love comes in many different shapes and forms. As you start to look at crystal meaning and ways to live more confidently, you’ll want to ask yourself: what do you currently do for self-care or self-love? Do you make time for your individual needs? What can you do more of to enhance your self-confidence? Once you consider what you need to do more of to feel like the best version of yourself, you can look for new ways to incorporate more positivity to help you overcome negative energies or low vibrations. 

If you're looking for ways to enhance your lifestyle with crystals for self love, here are a few things you can try:

  • Create a morning routine that values the strength of crystals for confidence and use a Rose Quartz Roller. This tool uses the power of Rose Quartz, a well-known crystal for self love, and can help you enhance your self-care routine, provide you with a gorgeous glow, and allow you to seize the day in new ways. 
  • Allow yourself to pause, reflect and unwind from your day. Consider taking a hot bath and surrounding your bathtub with your favorite crystals for confidence or use our Self-Love Crystal Bath Salts. These were made with an essential blend of crystals that will surround you with a powerful feeling of love and happiness. 
  • Rose Quartz will fill your space with love-filled energy and provide you with new feelings of happiness every day. Consider switching out your current home decor with a Rose Quartz Planter or a Rose Quartz Plate to enhance your living space and fill it with powerful feelings of love, light, and positivity. 

While it can be far too easy to lose sight of everything you’ve gone through 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. Utilizing crystals for confidence and self love can help you feel closer to your purpose and allow you to grow a deeper connection with yourself.

Your self-confidence, sense of self-worth, and constant self-empowerment is essential in promoting your success. Even at times when you feel your energies are low, there is always something new to learn from the experience. Always remember to stay true to who you are, make time for yourself, 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 your inner confidence or deter you from pursuing your passion.
