I’m not really sure about you, but as I get a wee older, I find alternative methods to heal various things happening to me and one way I do is through gemstones. Today I want to share 10 of the best crystals for confidence and creativity.
I stopped taking medicine and pills a long time ago and now look for more natural ways to heal and strengthen my body, soul and mind. Some say it’s pseudoscience, others say crystals can and do heal.
Whatever the case may be, clearly you can see that I am a firm believer in using crystals to heal and energize your body, mind, spirit and so much more. I use them in my daily life for confidence, self love and inner peace (and more!).
And you’re here reading this so I’m not alone.
In this article we’re not only going to talk about using crystals for healing but I’m also going to discuss the chakras as these are extremely important energy fields in our bodies. I promise this won’t be complicated.
The 7 chakras we will be discussing are, starting from the top:
- crown chakra
- third eye chakra
- throat chakra
- heart chakra
- solar plexus chakra
- sacral chakra
- root chakra
Here’s a great image for you to reference all 7 chakras and you might also really like this article from healthline.com.

Using Crystals to Heal Yourself
I’m no scientest or geologist but I have first hand experience that crystals do have healing properties. I’ve been using them for almost 10 years now for all kinds of situations in my life like:
- low self-esteem
- when I need inner strength to deal with difficult situations
- when my energy levels are low
- when I need mental focus or mental clarity
- if I have heart break
- when I’m scared, nervous or anxious
- for traveling
- and so much more!
Many of us women in our 50’s and beyond have unhealed trauma, uncertainty about the future, deal with loneliness and a sense of unworthiness among many other mental and physical issues. Can you imagine having to take a pill for every issue? Oy. Not me thanx.
I’d rather hold a crystal gemstone in the palm of my hand than take a pill that will eventually mess up my stomach as well as other things.
Anyway, I’m not here to preach. I’m here to offer alternative methods for you to consider. Take what you want, leave the rest.
Who first used crystals for healing?
Probably the first historical references to the use of crystals come from the Ancient Sumerians (4th millennium BC), who included crystals in their magic formulas. Crystals were (and are) also used for healing in traditional Chinese Medicine, which dates back to at least 5000 years.Source: CSIC
Clearly, they’ve been around for a long time! And still around being used for the same thing – healing!
I want to get right to the crystals for confidence and creativity.
10 Crystals For Confidence and Creativity, Courage, Self Love and More!
I wonder if it’s just me but as I age I notice I start lacking a lot of things like courage, confidence, self worth and more. The crystals I am about to share with you now all help me:
- regain my personal power,
- strengthen my inner power,
- help eliminate negative energies and all negative feelings
- give me a confidence boost
- give me more courage (bravery)
- and help me calm the eff down
I can’t imagine a day without crystals.
Now before I share the crystals with you we need to discuss how to use them / wear them. Most of my favorite crystals are in jewelry form. I wear gemstone bracelets 24/7 and I interchange my rings and crystal pendants, depending on the day.
You can use gemstone jewelry as well or get smooth palm stones or whatever. When you are out buying your stones, use your intuition. That is the most important. Buy the stone that calls to you.
I would also suggest picking up a few clear quartz crystals to go along with whatever crystal you buy as clear quartz amplifies the healing property of your other stones.
I have listed stones here from Amazon and a super cool site I recently partnered with Conscious Items. You can see more of their stuff here. It’s all beyond beautiful!!!!
Without further ado, here we go and in no particular order of importance…
1 Tiger’s Eye – Root Chakra
Not only one of the most beautiful but also one of the most powerful, is the tiger’s eye stone. I have so much jewelry in this stone. This is the also the most popular stone of courage and confidence. This would also be a great stone to wear on a first date!
Here is a small list of the healing properties of the tiger’s eye:
- protects against negative energy,

Ok ok, maybe my favorite stone, I have them all over my house. While the rose quartz is definitely the stone of unconditional love, it also does other things.

4 Black Tourmaline – Root Chakra

It is also good for:

Oh gosh, how I love Citrine! Not only is it one of the best crystals for confidence and creativity but it’s just a sunny, happy and prosperous stone! Often called the merchant’s stone, many store owners will keep one in the cash register to promote a successful business.
Besides being the stone of creativity, the citrine is also known for:

It’s also really good for:

9 Spirit Quartz – Solar Plexus Chakra
Your eyes will never see anything more stunning that a spirit quartz. This is a wonderful stone that works well with any stone to amplify their healing properties as the spirit quartz is just a cluster of clear quartz crystals.
Spirit Quartz is basically a Quartz crystal, or group of Quartz crystals, with a naturally formed Druzy Quartz layer on the outer surface which formed with the Quartz crystal. Spirit Quartz is often enhanced with a vapor film deposit surface coating to give it an iridescent look.Source: themysticjewel.com
It is a very protective stone that will transform negative energy into positive energy. It is a harmonious stone that will bring peace to any situation.
10 Amethyst – Crown Chakra
This list wouldn’t be complete without the beautiful Amethyst. This is a powerful stone that is well known for all it’s soothing calming properties, not to mention it looks fabulous everywhere. I can literally stare into an amethyst geode all day.
It’s one of the better stones for confidence and creativity imo because it helps you ‘be here now’ so you don’t worry or bother with stuff going on around you, especially negative things.
Here is a small list of what amethyst will do for you:
- relieves stress
- helps with mood swings
- gets rid of anxiety, and
- gives you more confidence
How to Use the Crystals For Healing
These crystals for confidence and creativity are also good for a whole lot of other things as you can see but how do we use them?
A lot of Reiki masters or energy healers will use these stones on each of your chakras while they are working on you and clearing your energies. Using them for personal use is a little different.
If you know you are going to be in a situation where you will need to remain calm, focused and centered, an amethyst stone is the one you would take with you that day.
Whether you have amethyst jewelry or just a palm stone, rub it gently and envision yourself remaining calm knowing that things will go well.
These stones work best with powerful intentions set by you! Remember everything is energy and we want the least amount of negative energy around us and the most positive energy, right?
If I’m feeling slightly less than happy, I’ll wear my Carnelian pendant. If I’m going somewhere alone and I need courage, I’ll put on my tiger’s eye ring or pendant.
You use your crystals in whatever way that calls to you.
And I can’t forget to tell you that it’s important to cleanse your stones often! I cleanse mine on each full moon just to clear all the negative energy they may have absorbed and also to recharge them. This article should help you with that!
