We should never underestimate just how much self doubt can effect us. Not just how we see and talk about ourselves, but what we feel capable of doing, our environment and our situation. It can warp the world around you and stop you from achieving the things you are perfectly equipped to achieve.

There are plenty of ways to handle self doubt, including becoming comfortable with challenging these thoughts and opening up a good line of communication with your higher self. Self doubt can often come from beliefs that we hold deep in our subconscious. Doing regular tarot readings or oracle card readings can be a great start, when it comes to creating a dialogue between the conscious and unconscious mind.

Other tools that can help support you on your mission to battle self doubt are crystals and crystal healing. Whether it is using them during meditation, to give you that extra energy boost, or in more complex rituals and spells. Crystals are a wonderfully supportive tool to have.

To help you decide which crystals are best for you and your own personal doubts, I’ve pulled together some of the best crystals for overcoming self doubt below!



Chakra: Root

Hematite is a beautiful, black crystal with a silver sheen that makes it great for rituals such as scrying. Like other black coloured stones, Hematite is a wonderful grounding stone for when your thoughts and feelings are running away with you.

Hematite will help to bring a more level headed approach, allow you to balance logic with emotion and offer protection against thoughts that threaten to derail you.

When we battle thoughts of self doubt, we can often overthink or exaggerate our situation, or the reactions of others. Things like thinking other people will laugh at us for not being ‘professional’ enough or that we don’t have a clue what we’re doing even though we are perfectly qualified.

Hematite will help you to stop judging yourself so harshly and help you see the reality of where you are at, rather than the world you have created inside your head.



Chakra: Heart

Emerald is a great stone to pair with Hematite, as it taps into your emotional energy rather than logical energy. Emerald encourages you to be kinder to yourself, more accepting and compassionate. We are always so hard on ourselves and self doubt can become a form of internal bullying if we let it get out of control.

Emerald will help to conjure feelings of ‘I can do this!’ and allow you to see just how much you’ve overcome and achieved. Pairing it with a more grounding stone like Hematite will help you create a better balance between the head and the heart and ensure you can use both effectively. It’s time to be PROUD of yourself!



Chakra: Heart & Throat

Amazonite is the perfect stone for opening those lines of communication we were talking about earlier. Don’t forget that we don’t always know everything about ourselves. As humans, we are an enigma and our subconscious is one of the best secret keepers around.

Amazonite helps you to not only better understand yourself, but it also ensures that you stay cool, calm and collected when self doubt hits hard. Self doubt can often cause feelings of panic and panic incites exaggerated or untrue thoughts. Amazonite makes sure you never lose sight of what’s real and helps to keep the peace internally.

Lapis Lazuli


Chakra: Throat

Closely associated with the throat chakra, Lapis Lazuli is a great stone to own if you are an entrepreneur. This stone allows you to really tap into your inner power, giving you the strength and confidence to banish self doubt when it rears its ugly head.

With strong truth and wisdom energy, Lapis Lazuli is the perfect tool for speaking and living your truth. It asks you to turn inwards and really think about what feels right to you. Trust your gut and invest time and energy into your creative visions.

How to use these crystals to overcome self doubt

Now you know which crystals can support you when battling to overcome self doubt, you may be wondering what you can do with them.

The best and easiest way is to tap into their energy through meditation. Chakra meditation is especially effective in this, as the crystals placed on their specific chakras can help to unblock and increase the flow of energy in specific areas.

For example, if you need to speak out more and communicate more efficiently in order to overcome your self doubt, then placing Lapis Lazuli on your throat chakra will help to unblock or reenergise that energy centre.

To do your chakra meditation, make sure you are clued up on the different energy points and what they have control over. Once you know where to place the crystals, it’s time to do your meditation. Lying down is the best option here, as it can be tricky to balance the crystals where they need to be!
