"Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right."
- Henry Ford
How confident you feel in your own two shoes as you go through life matters.

What is Confidence?
You may think that someone who dresses well, speaks well, and acts well, radiates confidence. No matter how well you dress or act, or frankly how successful you are in life, does not necessarily mean you have a high sense of self-worth or self-confidence.
Remember, true confidence comes from within you. So, if you're insecure within yourself, how you look or behave outwardly does not really matter.
Self-confidence is believing in yourself and staying true to who you are. It's not getting rattled when people put you down and having the courage to get back up when life seems to have been unfair.
And frankly, that takes work. However, feelings of low confidence and self-worth can also mean that something is not rightly aligned in your energy field — holistically speaking, you may have blocks in energy, that can manifest as a lack of self-confidence.
Confidence and the Chakras
"Your energy introduces you before you even speak."
In holistic healing, the body is made up of 7 main chakras, wheels of energy that are aligned along our body's major meridian or energy field. Chakras are a powerful tool to detect what is going on inside ourselves. Imbalances can show up as physical ailments or emotional issues and can often signal that something is not quite right.
Solar Plexus Chakra
The third, or solar plexus chakra, is believed to be linked to confidence. When the solar plexus chakra is balanced you'll feel confident, energetic, with the drive to get ahead.
When blocked, imbalances can manifest as feelings of unworthiness, low self-esteem, demotivation, fatigue, and a lack of optimism and self-confidence.
The color that represents the solar plexus chakra is yellow and it resonates with yellowish and golden-colored crystals such as citrine, golden beryl and tiger eye.
The sacral chakra is another chakra that can get unbalanced, especially after facing life situations that can put us down. Although some people can bounce back, for some, setbacks in life can leave deep wounds that can harm the functioning of the sacral chakra.
Blocks in the sacral chakra, or second chakra, can manifest as lack of motivation, poor self-worth, self-doubt, and low energy levels. When your sacral chakra is balanced, you'll feel emotionally secure, inspired and comfortable with who you are.
The color that represents the sacral chakra is orange and it resonates with orange-colored crystals such as carnelian, sunstone and orange calcite.
Imbalances in either or both your sacral and solar plexus chakras will mean that your self-confidence is at an all-time low. Rebalancing your chakras with specific crystals for confidence can help remove blockages, make sure you are operating at your full potential, and significantly increase your sense of self-worth and self-confidence.
Why Use Crystals for Confidence
There are many different methods that will teach you to build confidence. Everything from self-help books and therapy to personal mastery workshops and journaling.
While it is important to use different modalities to boost your confidence, crystals are amazing healing tools that can be used alone or alongside other methods to support you on your path to building confidence and self-esteem.
Wearing, carrying, or meditating with a confidence crystal is an excellent way of keeping the positive vibrations of the crystal close to your aura, so it is helping you at all times.
Crystals like everything else, are energy. Each crystal beats with its own unique vibration. So when you carry or wear crystals with positive, energetic, motivating vibrations, these energies become a part of your own energy field and can affect you physically, mentally and emotionally.
So for example, if you wear a crystal that vibrates with the energy of self-worth, these vibrations can help to reinforce feelings of worthiness within you, which means you'll start to value yourself more, and in turn take better care of yourself, push yourself to reach your true potential and discover your true capabilities, which will all help to increase your levels of confidence and take you to new heights of success.
Before you start to use a crystal, it's a good idea to cleanse the crystal to release any negative energies it may harbor. Sage sticks are an excellent way to drive away negative energies and have been considered a sacred, cleansing, purifying, and protective plant for hundreds of years.

How to Use Crystals for Confidence
Energetically connecting to your crystals for confidence can help you to feel self-empowered to do your very best and reach your true potential.
Below you'll find different ways you can use confidence crystals in your day-to-day routine to bring optimism, clarity, assurance and the self-confidence you need to pursue your goals and make your dreams a reality.
Positive Affirmations for Confidence
Positive affirmations are statements that you say over and over again every day. Affirmations actually work on your subconscious mind, helping to reprogram deep-rooted thinking patterns with new thoughts, and are actually proven to protect against stress and encourage problem-solving.
Repeating positive affirmations can be highly effective for opening blocked chakras. You can say affirmations specifically related to the solar plexus or sacral chakra to activate those chakras for healing. So for example, if you want to work on building your confidence you can say, " I believe in myself. I am strong. I am confident in everything I do."
Visualization with Crystals for Confidence
Visualization is simply using the power of your thoughts to shape your reality.
You can do this by holding a specific crystal for confidence such as a sunstone or citrine, or place a tumbled stone on your solar plexus chakra (on the abdomen, between your chest and naval).
Now visualize a warm yellow right radiating into your entire being from this crystal. Once you feel that your body is filled with this glowing light, you can repeat positive affirmations based on why you need confidence and courage.
So, for example, if you need the confidence to make a life-changing decision or you need to deal with an issue you've been avoiding you can say, "I have the courage to decide. This is what I chose to do."
Carrying Crystals for Confidence
Whether you need to feel optimistic throughout the day, need the courage to speak your mind or want to increase feelings of self-worth, carry your crystal for confidence with you daily. You can carry it in your wallet, pocket or in your purse and let its protective healing energies fill you with positive vibrations.
Every time you take the crystal in your hand, visualize it filling you with self-confidence and joy and boosting your energy.
Wearing Crystals for Confidence
Wearing your confidence crystals is a great way to have the positive healing energies of the healing stones within your own energy field.
You can choose to wear a necklace, bracelet or ring of the healing stone. Wearing confidence stones day in and day out can not only help you to increase your self-worth and confidence but slowly and surely also lead to enhancing your leadership skills, helping you to make better decisions.
Citrine is an incredible stone to wear when you want your confidence to be high, such as for an important job interview or when signing a business deal!
