Crystals for Belief
Renewing your Faith with Crystals
Mahatma Gandhi once said, ”To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.” Belief is a powerful thing. It can get us through many trials and obstacles in our lives. It also brings us hope and optimism in a world that may have gotten a little dark. But what happens when you start to lose your belief? Or even worse, it’s already gone? You must have belief in yourself in order to get through life.
Some people also belief in a higher power and loss of belief during hard times can be devastating. However, all hope is not lost. Crystals can help you restore, strengthen, or maintain your belief. They can renew your faith and belief in yourself, your higher power, or wherever it needs to be reestablished.
Blue Crystals for Faith
When looking to restore or strengthen your belief, we recommend using blue colored crystals. Blue is the color of ice reflecting the slowly lightening winter sky as the deep violets depart and the sun climbs higher every day. As the winter slowly gives way to the budding spring, and life quickens, ready to burst forth, blue marks the beginning of life and emotion. Blue crystal energy will unblock and balance the throat chakra. The dark shades of blue have the power of truth. Lighter shades have the power of flexibility relaxation and balance.
Blue crystals bring you trust, faith, patience, and respect.
The pure and serene color rays of blue colored crystals can aid you in spiritual cleansing, maintaining, restoring, or strengthening your belief, being faithful, being sincere, and establishing and maintaining trust. Blue crystals are the crystals of trust. When we seek to become more sincere, act more responsibly, or become more trustworthy or faithful, these crystals give us the focus we require. Faith is very important to belief. They are like sisters, without having faith in your belief, you will be left empty. Just in reverse if you don.t have any belief in your faith, you will be just as lost. Blue crystals are excellent aids in ensuring that we are acting out our lives as worthy of the trust of our friends, acquaintances, and community.
Lapis Lazuli is a powerful crystal of deep truth and understanding. Lapis was much used in Greek and Roman times as an ornamental stone, and in medieval Europe, Lapis Lazuli, resembling the blue of the heavens, was believed to counteract the wiles of the spirits of darkness and procure the aid and favor of the spirits of light and wisdom. It is a powerful crystal for activating the higher mind and enhancing intellectual ability. It stimulates the desire for knowledge, truth and understanding, and aids the process of learning. A stone of truth, Lapis encourages honesty of the spirit, and in the spoken and written word. It provides an awareness of one’s motivations and beliefs, and gives a clearer perspective of one’s whole life. It reveals not only one’s limitations, but the opportunities for growth and to utilize one’s gifts and abilities.
Lapis is an Enhancer Filter Crystal. Enhancers are minerals and crystals with internal crystal lattices of perfect cubic symmetry and internal harmony. They can focus and enhance our energy on the feelings of improvements we desire and help turn them to the thoughts that will produce the actions we need to improve.
Another crystal that can aid you in your journey through belief is Blue Apatite.

It is a Stone of Manifestation, promoting a humanitarian outlook and service to others. Blue Apatite is a deeply spiritual stone with a cleansing influence on the aura, especially in the mental body. It has an uplifting energy that raises spirits, encouraging a positive outlook and a hopeful attitude.

What Other Crystal Authors Recommend
Michael Gienger recommends Obsidian which is a stone that helps us seek balance and flexibility.
"Obsidian helps us attain integrity through helping us to see our shadow sides in their true nature, so they can once more become part of the self. This is how to attain the ‘unimpeachability of the warrior’, a spiritual invulnerability and freedom."
When we lose belief in our life, it can make bad situations even worse. We have to have belief in something in order to be able to heal and have faith when things get hard.
