10 Best Crystals for Self-Confidence (And How to Use Them)

Self-confidence is a tricky thing. Some people are bursting with confidence, while others need a good minute or two to muster up the courage even to talk to a barista.  

So even though confidence might appear to be an inherent trait of many “successful” people, we are all blessed with the ability to cultivate it within ourselves. It is a continuous process, and many people have their own struggles with manifesting self-confidence. 

“I think about trust and confidence as something that you earn every day, and we will keep at it, earning it every day.”

Lynn Wood

Clear Quartz crystals are regarded as the best healer and amplifier and a must-have for anybody looking to improve their confidence and self-esteem. There’s no denying that these colorless and transparent crystals exude a powerful and exquisite aura, being able to work on their own or with a combination of other crystals.  

Resonating with all seven chakras, Clear Quartz is a highly versatile healing crystal that is proficient at cleansing the physical and mental realms of the body.  

According to Feng Shui practices, Clear Quartz can help improve the nutrition you receive from your food while also improving your mental clarity and focus. Although you may not see its direct ties to confidence and self-esteem, a powerful amplifier and versatile healing crystal such as this can help lay the foundation for your quest for self-confidence and self-improvement.

Coupled with a good base-stone such as Clear Quartz, Citrine crystals can be a powerful emanator of positive energy and vitality. These yellow and light-orange-colored crystals help remind us of the radiance and warmth of the sun, allowing us to shine a warm light into our hearts and achieve our true potential. 

Citrine is most often associated with positivity, warmth, and new beginnings, and according to Feng Shui, it is said to bring about wealth and fortune. The crystal is also associated with the Solar Plexus Chakra, which is said to improve one’s self-esteem and willpower. 

Alongside its benefits for the mental realm, Citrine crystals are also said to be great detoxifiers, extracting negative energies from the body and keeping these forces at bay. 

Citrine is best used in close contact, either as jewelry or as small runes you can always keep in your pockets. However, don’t forget to cleanse them regularly, as these high-intense crystals do need to reset and recharge.  

3. Rose Quartz – To Remind Us to Be Kind to Others and Ourselves

Rose Quartz crystals, as you can tell, represent the playful and innocent hues of light pink. However, despite their pale and delicate-looking exterior, these crystals belong to the Quartz family, and they are quite tough, literally and figuratively. 

They are tied to the root and heart chakras

Behind the symbolism of Rose Quartz crystals lies the fundamental concepts of love, compassion, and unity. From an emotional perspective, it helps attract and foster deep relationships with your loved ones, while also allowing you to recover from emotional scars left by previously failed partnerships. 

Rose Quartz crystals are always a necessity for any starter kit as we could always benefit from a little boost to our self-esteem and our ability to be confident in our personal and professional relationships. 

Keeping a palm stone or a tumbled piece of Rose Quartz nearby can always be beneficial. So, whenever you’re feeling overwhelmed or looking for the strength to deal with a difficult person, you can always return to this crystal.

On the physical aspect, it is said to bolster immunity, and strength, stimulating the organs, and improving blood circulation. On the mental and emotional side, it has direct connections with self-confidence, ambition, and creativity. 

Carnelian crystals resonate with our sacral chakras. As such, it has an almost extreme affinity to desire, passion, and conquest. They are better off as altars around your bedroom and workstation, allowing you to refer to them whenever you desire a strong sense of confidence and power.

These rocks belong to the Chalcedony family and like Quartz crystals, they can be easily cut and polished into various shapes, most often making their way into bracelets. 

These crystals are primarily used for protection, warding off, or drawing out negative energies and curses. 

As the name suggests, the Tiger’s Eye crystals are inspired by the tiger’s iris. Just like tigers, who are the true kings and queens of the jungle, the Tiger’s Eye crystal represents confidence, dexterity, and power, among other things.  

These crystals, apart from keeping negative energies at bay, can help the user fortify their self-esteem and confidence. They are also associated with the root chakra and are said to enhance the spiritual abilities of the user.

At a glance, this pearly white crystal might not seem to have a lot to do with confidence and self-esteem. But, if you’re interested in spirituality, and healing yourself with the help of otherworldly forces, there’s nothing better. 

These crystals are brittle and soft, so it might be difficult to fashion jewelry out of them or cleanse them thoroughly. However, as long as you’re careful, and remember to take proper care of these crystals, you’ll be rewarded with wisdom and stability. 

Moonstones are very viable healing crystals for somebody who’s suffering from self-esteem issues. These stones can help alleviate your emotional pain and bring balance into your mind and body.

The final crystal on our list is Rhodonite. These heavily textured crystals are most often found in shades of pink and light red, making them look and feel closer to Rose Quartz crystals. 

Rhodonite crystals also share a connection with the heart chakra and are often associated with empathy, love, and compassion. These crystals can make you feel empowered, physically, and mentally. On top of that, they provide you with a sense of comfort and serenity that helps you weather the world with confidence. 

These crystals are best used as empowering amulets. However, you can also use them in your home or workstation as long as you use appropriately sized crystals with a shape (usually a sphere) that’s able to radiate energy more efficiently.  

Wrapping Up 

Maintaining our confidence and self-esteem is a continuous process. It is not always easy to remain steadfast day in and day out, especially when you’re going through a difficult time.  

That said, one of the best ways that we can let ourselves heal and recharge our “confidence reserves” is with the help of healing crystals. So, with the proper combination of crystals, we will be able to restore and improve our confidence.
