GUEST POST | I’ve owned a variety of crystals for some time now and although I don’t use them as much as I used to (nor as much as I’d like), I do still love having them at my disposal for when I really need them. I’ve never talked about crystals on my blog before, so I’m thrilled to welcome Soph here today to share her top 3 crystals for self confidence!

crystals for self confidence

Hey guys! First of all, a huge thank you to Jenny for giving me the opportunity to guest post on her blog. I’ve been reading this blog for a few years now and it’s one of my faves so I’m super excited to be writing a post for you guys!

So, this post is going to look at the top 3 crystals to increase self-confidence and growth that I like to use. It’ll also include some examples of how you can use crystals to benefit your own mental health and wellbeing, as they’ve honestly changed my life so much.

Carnelian

Why not start strong with one of my favourite crystals?! Carnelian is a brown/red/orange crystal that’s mainly used for self-confidence. Many people carry this crystal around with them or wear it on their body as a bracelet or necklace as they prefer it to touch their skin.

The main benefits of Carnelian are:

  • Creativity
  • Motivation
  • Assertiveness
  • Confidence
  • Self-assurance

If you wear carnelian, for example on a necklace, ring or bracelet, you may notice these benefits:

  • Energy
  • Clearer skin
  • Stronger immune system
  • Improved memory
  • Better sleep
  • Enhanced vision

If you’d like to encourage abundance in your life, it’s recommended to have a Carnelian stone in the south side of your house. If you’d like to boost creativity and motivation, it could be helpful to place a Carnelian in your office / home office / wherever you work. To improve fertility and sexual confidence, you can leave a Carnelian in the bedroom. This is because Carnelian is connected to the lower chakras.

Malachite

Malachite is a healing crystal and also one of my favourites in my collection. It’s a green crystal that has swirls all over it ranging from a lighter to darker green. It’s a protection stone as it absorbs toxic and negative energy from within and around you.

It’s undeniably one of the prettiest crystals and has some pretty cool benefits too, such as:

  • Protection
  • Rebalances mood swings
  • Encourages risk taking
  • Positivity

Since Malachite is used commonly as a protection stone, many miners carry it with them when they’re underground. Similarly, many pilots carry it with them when they’re flying to add that extra protection throughout the flight.

Malachite is associated to the heart and throat chakra. This means it helps open up your heart to accept more self-love, confidence and positivity. It allows you to accept love from others and allows you to unconditionally love those around you. Furthermore, it provides you with the confidence to be more outspoken and communicate more clearly.

Rose Quartz

If you’re interested in crystals at all, this is probably one you’ve heard of. It’s a super popular one because of it’s beauty and wonderful properties. If you’re aiming to promote self love, acceptance, and confidence, this is the one for you!

Here are some benefits of Rose Quartz:

  • Self love
  • Romantic love
  • Increased empathy
  • Self-esteem
  • Forgiveness
  • Soothing

Rose Quartz is linked to the heart chakra and is associated with earth signs, particularly Taurus and Libra (I’m a Taurus so I guess that explains why I love it so much!) It’s a good stone to help attract self love and romantic love into your life as it opens the heart chakra and helps with your self-confidence and acceptance.

So, there we have it! Those are my top 3 crystals to increase self-confidence and growth. These crystals can benefit your life simply by being placed under your pillow when you sleep, on a desk in your room, or worn as jewellery so it’s close to your body. I hope you guys found this post helpful and thank you again to Jenny for allowing me to guest post on her blog!

  1. Lovely post! Not ashamed to divulge that I’ve spent over £200 on crystals over the last year…whoops. I love green fluorite, clear quartz and honey calcite. I always opt for crystal towers too, if possible.

  2. My mum has always been quite knowledgeable when its come to crystals so I’ve grown up around them – I always say rose quartz is such a great starting place for people.

  3. I’ve started getting into crystals last year due to some personal things going on and let me tell you, as someone who was very skeptical about it all – I had to bite my own tongue! I need malachite in my life for sure, and also the rose quartz! Thank you for sharing these x

  4. Wow, these sound amazing! I’ve never really ever looked into crystals and their benefits but after reading todays post, I defiantly think that has to change! I’m loving the sound of the benefits these crystals have, especially regarding self-confidence. I’m going to do some more research into them and probably purchase some myself. Thank you so much for sharing with us lovely Xo

  5. Flora gave me a rose quartz crystal for my bedside table due to its cleansing and healing abilities (she’s very much into her crystals and geology). That’s really interesting about the Malachite and pilots too, I’ll have to ask Alan if he knew about that when he was a pilot! xx

  6. I have been looking at getting crystal. I will definitely check these out. I think my first one may be the Rose Quarz. Thank you for sharing.

  7. I’ve heard of Rose Quartz before, but not Carnelian. That one seems like something I definitely need. Thanks for sharing this.

  8. I love a good crystal! I’m a big believer in their power, especially when charged and cleansed correctly! It’s so good to see other people writing about this – it’s giving me major motivation to keep pushing the boundaries of my blog.

  9. I used rose quartz to attract love. It was a rose quartz pendulum. I still have it but I don’t know where it is in the house. It responded to me in the store so I bought it. I used it for a few months to attract a boyfriend and it worked. While I was using it, I was able to *act* confident which is usually very hard for me to do, but this time I could do it easily. I just want to mention that you’ll be fully aware that you are *playing the role* of a confident person (you’ll feel like an actor/actress).

  10. Lovely post. I love crystals and always eager to learn more about their properties and power. I’ve bookmarked this for future reference! xxx

  11. I don’t have crystals at the moments but will keep these in mind when I get the chance to get them. I don’t know so much about them that’s why I don’t have haha. This will help me, thank you for sharing!

  12. I love Rose Quartz, I have a ton of them at home in several shapes. I also enjoy Jade and Malachite.

  13. I’m working on increasing my self-confidence this year, and it’s not easy, but I’ve managed to do well so far. I love the sound of Carnelian crystal! Thanks for writing and sharing this post 🙂
