One of the things I love about Crystal Healing is how beautifully the combinations of various crystal properties can be matched to the complexity of our needs. For example, when someone comes to me looking for crystals for Heart Healing, there is more than one answer I can give them, depending on the specifics of their situation. We can choose crystals to help heal emotional wounds, crystals to ground negative thoughts, crystals to release emotional hooks, crystals to encourage self-love, etc.
The same is true for Building and Sustaining Confidence. Our reasons for lacking Confidence are varied, and the crystals we can use for support are equally adjustable.
Consider how a Confidence issue could stem from each Chakra:
- Root- Lack of a sense of Safety
- Sacral- Lack of Identity
- Solar Plexus- Lack of Control
- Heart- Lack of Self-Love
- Throat- Lack of Communication
- Third Eye- Lack of Insight
- Crown- Lack of Connection
One broad method for clearing Confidence issues would be to cleanse and align each of your chakras, using meditation or sound healing. A more targeted method would be to determine what's blocking confidence in your particular situation and then choose the crystals that will help you pinpoint and heal those blocks most efficiently. It never ceases to amaze me, when I do a Crystal Consultation, how the combination always changes. No two situations are alike, and through the series of questions, we are able to pinpoint exactly where support is needed to have the greatest possible effect.
As a general guide, here are a few crystals for building and sustaining confidence. Which one of these speaks the most to you?
Carnelian, a beautiful fiery orange stone for the Sacral and Root chakras, helps you stay energized and motivated as you work toward your goals.
Smoky Quartz is a grounding stone, helping to direct negative energy gently through the Root chakra and out of the energy body.
Rose Quartz is healing for the heart, encouraging self-love and appreciation.
Sunstone also helps the Heart Chakra, enabling you to disconnect from other people's opinions and focus on what's best for you.
Magnetic Hematite is another great Root Chakra stone, bringing a sense of stability and forward motion.
Blue Apatite helps bring motivation and manifestation of your goals.
Citrine is amazing for manifesting financial abundance. It is also great for increasing energy and positive thinking.
Peridot encourages change, helping you to let go of what's holding you back and reach for higher vibrations.
