Crystals for confidence and courage
Are you interested in learning about crystals for confidence and courage? Maybe you just love the look of them (like I do!) all sparkly and pretty?
I thought crystals looked pretty and felt pleasant to hold, but then I took a degree in ultrasound imaging (years ago) and discovered a quartz crystal sitting right inside the ultrasound machine.
And of course, a crystal is found in computers and other electronic devices as a reliable piezoelectric material (that’s the last techy word I’ll use here lol)
Whaaaaat?!? I know!
This got me thinking about using crystals in other ways.
Perhaps charging the crystal from other sources (such as the sun or falling water), or even learning how old and wise a crystal can be when you think about it.
I love anything natural that can enhance the quality of life, and crystals are one of those things.
In this post, I’ll share the best crystals I’ve discovered for confidence and courage, to remove negative energy and help step into that awesome personal power we can all muster (plus make your home look gorgeous!)
Did you know that crystals have specific energies that can influence how you feel?
Crystals are a wonderful tool for low self-esteem and to boost inner strength. I had a crystal in my pocket during my exams at school and university and still keep it in my purse to this day. It’s a green Amazonite crystal and is my favourite – the crystal I feel most connected to.
A powerful stone can be a great grounding tool – useful in meditation and for focusing the mind.
Simply holding the crystal in your hand and experiencing the texture and coolness (or warmth in some cases) is a balancing, calming, earthly experience.
Crystals are also wonderful as decoration in the home.
You could place them alongside house plants to add some colour, or pick whichever one you like depending on their properties.
Perhaps a Lapis Lazuli for clarity and healing, or Clear Quartz for alignment and manifestation?
Crystals for courage
The best stones in my opinion are the ones you choose yourself.
You walk straight into a crystal shop and sense whichever one you’re drawn to. I’m a crystal shop junkie and never miss the opportunity to browse the shelves, finding a great stone that speaks to me every time.
Crystals come in all shapes and sizes, from raw and unpolished, to round and glossy, to their shiny awesomeness.
Different crystals have different effects on every one of us.
What I find a great crystal may not be your ideal stone, and vice versa. But some crystals are renowned for having certain properties, such as minimising negative feelings or enhancing creative energy.
Other crystals are great for mental focus, some for inner peace, others for managing stressful situations, etc.
Perhaps not one of the usual crystals for enhanced confidence and courage, but I feel it deserves its spot at the top of my list!
Rose quartz is a beautiful dusky pink stone that exudes femininity and beauty, and because of that, it has a powerful psychological effect. Known as the stone of unconditional love, it’s linked to the heart chakra and can evoke a feeling of confidence because of its connections to LOVE.
But how do you define love?
Well, that’s up to you to decide for yourself.
Love to me is intense, “I can’t live without you” feelings toward those we care about the most. But love can also feel different. I have a genuine love for this entire planet and all people on it, simply because I choose to tune in to those feelings.
And I want more of those feelings in my life! Rose quartz helps me with that.
Simply looking at it and holding it in your palm will help you tune into love in yourself and help develop confidence through practising self-love and self-compassion.
This stone exudes grounding earth energy combined with a high vibration, making it a superb companion when seeking confidence and courage. It’s like a stone of protection, traditionally carried by those wishing to banish curses.
Psychologically, Tigers eye is a healer of critical self-worth and low self-esteem, boosting your vibes from within. I find just holding my Tigers eye in my palm and looking at it gives me a confidence boost.
Sounds crazy, I know! Maybe it’s the earthly colours…
Not only one of the MOST gorgeous crystals to look at – the colour is to die for! Red Jasper is a tremendous stone for courage, being called the stone of endurance.
Somehow, just being in a space with a Red Jasper crystal boosts self confidence and banishes negative energies.
This has a long history as a healing stone, being connected to the Earth in such a profound way. It grounds the user and develops courage when its needed. A wonderful stone to have in your handbag or to wear as a piece of jewellery.
Blue Lace Agate
Well known as a stone which brings positivity and happiness, Blue Lace Agate is also a good idea to calm down the nervous system if you’re anxious or stressed.
The delicate blue white colour is wonderfully soothing. It’s also a very hard stone so is cool to touch.
It’s becoming rare to find genuine Blue Lace Agate these days, as there are some fake versions artificially dyed (- avoid!)
But if you’re lucky enough to find one, then do sit for a while with it near you, or in your hand, or place on an area of your body which needs some TLC, and focus on the sensation.
Expect to feel relief and calm in doing so.
