A common theme I see with my clients is tending to put others’ needs before their own. You’ve probably heard the saying “you can’t pour from an empty cup,” and I have found this to be SO true throughout my own personal and business journeys. As a busy entrepreneur, friend, and partner, I used to find myself struggling to maintain the delicate balance between doing and receiving (check out this post to learn more about balancing your feminine and masculine energy). Through my own experiences and from coaching thousands of clients, I’ve learned that in order to show up as the best version of yourself for others, you need to show up as the best version of you for yourself, first. This can require deep work and cultivating a strong sense of self-love.
Self-love has become somewhat of a buzzword and social media trend these days, but it’s so much more than just applying a face mask, taking a bath, or buying a cute new top. Don’t get me wrong – these things are great to incorporate into your daily routine, but TRUE self-love should be rooted in a deep practice of loving yourself unconditionally and honoring yourself enough to fully recharge and receive.
Once you’ve cultivated a deep self-love practice, there are a number of tools you can use to further strengthen it! One of my favorite simple tools for enhancing self-love is crystals.
You can meditate with them, place them around your room, or carry them with you for whenever you need a gentle reminder to love yourself and honor your self-worth.
Today I’m sharing my top three crystals for enhancing self-love so you can use them to deepen your own self-love practice.
1. Rose Quartz
Rose quartz is a staple for enhancing self-love. It’s known as the stone of unconditional love, and it can support you in healing from emotional wounds and trauma from your past. Rose quartz also supports the heart chakra – so if you’re dealing with any emotional blockages, this crystal can help your healing process!
2. Clear Quartz
Clear quartz provides cleansing energy to help remove negative energy from your life. This crystal is ideal if you find yourself struggling with a lack of self-confidence or negative beliefs about yourself, your life, or your future. I love to carry clear quartz with me to help me cleanse and protect my energy, especially during stressful times where I catch myself in self-doubt or negative self-talk.
Last but not least is amethyst, which is known for helping you connect with your higher self. This crystal can be a powerful tool for enhancing self-love because it supports self-confidence and allows you to see the bigger picture. It also helps open the third-eye chakra, which supports intuition and foresight. Connecting with your intuition is a great way to develop trust in yourself and your feelings, which can allow you to make decisions in your life with more confidence.
