Confidence is something that many of us struggle to find. Sometimes it’s here in full force; other times it’s completely missing. Having confidence is an important part of our lives. It shapes how we make decisions, whether or not we go for the opportunities presented to us, and so much more. While confidence comes from within you, healing crystals can help you think positively, be more accepting of yourself, and radiate the bright light you have. With that being said, here are a few crystals that can help you boost your self-esteem…

Now that we know a few of the best crystals to use for boosting our confidence and self-esteem, here are some tips on how you can put these confidence crystals to use: 

  • Meditate with your crystals: Hold onto a crystal when meditating about a problem you have faced or are preparing to face. During confrontation, keeping a crystal in your hand or pocket can give your the bravery or courage you need. 
  • Wear crystal/gemstone jewelry: This will help you accelerate your personal confidence on a daily basis, and it is one of the simplest ways to reach into the power of the crystals.
  • Connect to your chakras: Place your crystal on whichever chakra you need to have cleared to reach your full confidence. Confidence can be brought down for many different reasons and finding the source can help you grow. 

Have confidence is something that many of us need to discover and enhance on our own. It will take time, effort, and work to grow in this trait, and crystals will be able to help you hone in on your skills. Remember to embrace your true self and be contagiously you!
