These 13 Healing Stones Are the Best Crystals for Confidence
Confidence comes from inner strength and can only be found within us.
The most confident and courageous people don’t let self-doubt and limiting thought patterns dictate their lives, but dare to risk and grow, despite any trials and initial tribulations. Healing crystals are one of the best ways to naturally boost your confidence, inner strength and courage.
Especially during periods of high stress, toxic thoughts and emotional trauma can creep back into our mind, opening old wounds. You can support your energy and eliminate low self-esteem by incorporating some of these healing crystals into your meditation practice.
How can healing crystals help?
The powerful vibrations that crystals carry are attuned to energy centres on our bodies, called chakras. The 7 Chakras are all symbolic of different “hotspots” and when they are open, energy can flow through to balance and energize the body and mind, bringing renewed vitality and helping us reach our full potential. Each crystal has a different vibrational energy and might feel different to each person. As you become attuned to energy shifts happening around you and within you, you might notice some crystals “calling” you.
The chakra that is most closely linked to confidence and courage is the Solar Plexus. It symbolizes raw warrior energy, inner strength and determination. Since the Solar Plexus, is associated with gold and yellow colours, a lot of the healing stones found on this list have beautiful yellow hues. Working on your Sacral Chakra, which governs emotional balance, sensuality and passion, will also benefit your relationship with yourself and others by making you feel secure and eliminating insecurities and irrational fears.

How to use crystals and things to keep in mind?
Where to place crystals:
Crystals work by amplifying or cleansing the negative energy that is present in your body or environment. You can experiment with meditation, placing the crystals on specific chakras or keeping them close to your body. Wearing crystal jewellery is another one of the best ways to keep the positive energies flowing your way. For some crystals, you can even use them next to your bed, or next to your office as EMF protection.
Does size matter?
Similar to placement, the size of the crystal can affect the intensity of the vibrations. It is best to start with a smaller piece of stone or crystal and track changes in your mood and how you feel first.
