10 crystals for confidence

Crystals are beautiful to look at, there’s no doubt about that. But, when you stop to think about how they’ve been formed, taking millions of years underground with each subtle difference in environment leading to a different type of crystal… It’s actually pretty awe-inspiring.

It’s perhaps no surprise then that these gifts from nature are believed to be imbued with properties that can affect us. Depending on the type of crystal, they are thought to have the power to shift our energy, bringing us into balance and giving certain energies a little boost when we need it. For those new to the concept of crystal healing, we recommend taking a look at our beginner’s guide to crystal healing to get your bearings.

One energetic area many of us struggle with is confidence. Now, there are lots of ways you can work on building your confidence, including working with a coach or even trying hypnotherapy but, if you’re looking for a natural way to support this work, carrying the right crystal could give your energy the boost it needs.

10 crystals to help you build confidence

1. Citrine

Bright and warm, this yellow crystal is linked to the solar plexus chakra which relates to our inner power and confidence. Also seen as a stone that invites positive energy, use citrine when you need support in being optimistic and powerful.

2. Tiger’s eye

With a stunning brown/gold sheen, the stripey tiger’s eye crystal helps us gain insight and clarity. Helping us to let go of false narratives we hold about our abilities, this is a great crystal to use when your inner critic pipes up.

3. Rose Quartz

In order to get to confidence, we must first embrace self-compassion and this is where rose quartz, or ‘the love stone’, steps in. Pale pink in colour, this stone encourages a more loving mindset – keep one close when you’re beating yourself up.

4. Garnet

This dark red stone is ideal for those clinging onto unhelpful behaviour patterns affecting your confidence. Supporting you to discard limiting beliefs and feel a sense of peace, use garnet when you’re ready to make a change.

5. Solodite

If you’re a creative, you’ll know how confidence issues can affect your work. Solodite, with its dark blue and white colouring, is known for improving your sense of self-worth and giving you the courage to express yourself fully, so is perfect for removing creative blocks.

6. Carnelian

Ranging in colour from deep orange to paler sunset hues, carnelian is believed to engage the root, sacral and heart chakra. Encouraging bravery, especially in situations that require speech, keep this crystal to hand for public speaking occasions, important meetings or first dates. 

7. Spirit quartz

A gentle stone, the spirit quartz is thought to support self-belief so you can see what’s truly possible for you. Pale lilac in colour, the crystal is linked to the crown chakra – add it to your collection when you need a reminder of your inherent power.

8. Red jasper

Activating the root chakra, red jasper is a brilliant option to help ground you when life feels full on. Instilling a sense of inner strength, turn to this dark red stone when you need to draw on your resilience.

9. Amazonite

Another crystal that can help in turbulent times, amazonite (known as ‘the stone of hope’) encourages a sense of balance amongst uncertainty and chaos. Pale blue/green in colour, just looking at the stone will offer peace.

10. Moonstone

White and pearlescent in appearance, moonstone is thought to help with new beginnings. Carrying a gentle energy linked to the moon, carry this stone as you hold your head up high and move forward into your next chapter.

How to use crystals for confidence

Hopefully, by now you will have a good idea of which crystals will support you right now. But what can you do with them when you get them?

There are lots of ways you can use crystals, but here are some of our favourites:

  • keep it as a talisman (carry it with you when your confidence feels shaky and touch it to be reminded of its energy)
  • meditate with it (try a meditation for confidence and hold your crystal throughout)
  • keep it on your desk (especially useful if you need a confidence boost at work)
  • wear it (wearing crystal jewellery will ensure you keep its energetic properties close)
  • have it close by while journaling (try writing about your confidence worries with your crystal nearby and see what comes up for you)

The important thing is to experiment and see what feels good to you and don’t forget to look after your crystals by cleansing them regularly.

If you’re looking to work with crystals and want the guidance of a professional, you may want to book a session with a crystal healer.
