Amethyst and Rose Quartz Crystals to help with Motivation

Which Crystals Help With Motivation?

filed in:

Our culture tends to celebrate the hustle. We are expected to be productive, achieve greatness, and have vibrant social and family lives all at the same time. If we’re not careful, a plate that is too full can leave us feeling weary, exhausted, and perhaps like we don’t have the motivation to continue climbing those ladders.

This is where Culinary Alchemy® comes in. Ensuring that you are caring for your whole person—body, mind, and soul, can help you replenish after working hard. This type of self-care can help you feel your best while taking on any endeavor.

Culinary Alchemy® encompasses numerous practices and rituals that help the whole person heal and grow. These practices include plant-based eating, conscious movement, meditation, and energy work, to name a few. This work can be amplified by the energy of crystals.

How Do Crystals Support Healing?

The origins of healing crystals date back many centuries. For thousands of years, crystals have been used to assist emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual healing. In fact, historical records prove that Ancient Sumerians and Egyptians used healing crystals as medicinal ingredients. Their healing powers were guided by the crystals’ energetic vibrations, which have been demonstrated in scientific experiments on the piezoelectric effect. This effect describes the electric charges occurring inside crystals and other materials.

Crystals have experienced a resurgence in popularity in the West in recent years, because they carry an incredible capacity to support energetic healing. By aligning their vibration with intentional healing practices and rituals, we can nourish the mind, body, and soul.

The Best Crystals for Motivation

Before sharing my favorite crystals to increase motivation, I want to share that crystals are not going to be a cure-all for low energy. In doing this healing work, it is paramount to address the root cause of your lack of motivation. A few reasons you may feel fatigued include: exhaustion, burnout, lack of sleep, hormonal imbalance, depression, and holding onto negative energy. Working to identify the root cause will help you and your practitioner create a holistic healing plan that will support your individual healing.

Crystals can support other healing practices, such as quality sleep, a high vibrational frequency diet, meditation, and conscious movement. Different crystals hold different vibrations and are helpful for different healing practices.

Below are just a few crystals that can support enhancing energy and motivation, but it’s important to keep in mind that everyone heals differently. You may need to try a few practices and corresponding crystals to find a combination that best supports your healing right now.

Black Tourmaline

When your energy overlaps with the energy of others, black tourmaline is a great choice for motivation. This crystal helps to block negative energy and allows you to focus on worthy pursuits.

You can place black tourmaline in a central area of your workspace or in the heart of your home.

Blue Apatite

Blue apatite is uniquely beautiful in its appearance. This crystal helps with motivation as it allows you to focus on your ambitions and increases self-acceptance and self-confidence.

When you’re reminded of your worth, it’s easy to find the motivation to materialize the life you desire. Blue apatite can be placed under your pillow or worn in your hair near your third eye chakra.


Malachite is a strong crystal that increases your ability to embrace new, creative ideas and let go of the habits that keep you from success.

It is said that the eastern corner of your home is the best place for malachite. You can place the crystal on a table or shelf, or hang art that incorporates malachite in its design.


Pyrite is all about strengthening your motivation and increasing your willpower to get things done. This crystal can help you manifest abundance and prosperity. Pyrite can also remind you of what’s important and help you to drown out the negative energy that impacts your motivation.

Similarly to black tourmaline, pyrite works well in workspaces and the places where you spend most of your time.

Rose Quartz

Love can be a powerfully motivating force. Rose quartz is a beautiful gem that may help you to manifest self-love and the support and encouragement of others. In turn, this helps you to gain confidence and pursue your goals.

You can place rose quartz in your bedroom — under your pillow or on your nightstand. It’s important to place this crystal where you’ll see it daily. Hold rose quartz close to your heart during morning or evening meditation rituals to focus on its energy.

You can even try placing the crystal next to your bathroom mirror to incorporate it into your morning and nighttime routines.

Choosing Your Crystals For Motivation

Crystals can be powerful tools for enhancing healing practices. When choosing crystals for your healing practices, you want to not only research crystals and their intentions, you will also want to tune into your intuition to listen to which crystals your body, mind, and soul need in this moment.
