I was honoured recently to be asked to chat about crystals for self care and self confidence in a Facebook group and it made me realise that it’s something I’ve never really talked about here.

Which crystals do you need crystals for self care and confidence?

Crystals for self-care and confidence depend on the root of your lack of confidence and then you can choose crystals accordingly to help manage the energy imbalance in those area.

Crystals for self care

My go to crystal for self care would always be a rose quartz,  it really is like having a hug from a crystal. It’s not just about romantic love but also about self-love, compassion and balance. Other crystals that work on the heart chakra include some of the softer green crystals like amazonite  and adventurine.

Crystals for confidence

Lack of confidence can come from various areas and relate to different chakras which I will talk about one at a time.

Throat Chakra

A lack  of confidence can sometimes appear when you feel you’re struggling to communicate with people or feel that you aren’t actually being heard. If this is your worry then great crystal for this would be sodalite. Its gentle, calming effects really do work on communication, and that feeling of being heard. Other crystals that could help with this are mainly blue crystals, such as blue lace agate (if you can get it) and crystals like turquoise and lapis lazuli.

Sodalite is generally much cheaper than lapis so although good in its own right, you need to be careful that you’re not being sold it marked as lapis. The easiest way to tell the difference between the two is sodalite has grey veining through it whereas lapis tends to be a brighter blue and more importantly has the gold flecks through it.

Sacral and Solar Plexus Chakras

Self confidence, or lack of, can come when your sacral or your solar plexus chakras are imbalanced. This is really getting to the core of your being who you are and what you do. Great crystals to work on this area are  your oranges and yellows. So think carnelian, citrine and orange calcite.

Another really good crystal for the sacral chakra and confidence that sometimes gets missed is the tiger’s eye. Its good for giving confidence and courage.

Don’t forget, you can always pop over and join my Facebook group where I regularly post lots of top tips and wisdom on how to get the best out of crystals.
