9 Crystals For Inner Strength – Get through challenges

Empower yourself with these crystals for inner strength. Help yourself stay strong in the face of challenges, obstacles and difficult people in your life. Find the strength to overcome a bad habit or weakness.

What Is Inner Strength?

Having inner strength isn’t about being a hero or fearless all the time. Inner strength is what makes you get back up again and also what drives you to push through or overcome your challenges.
Inner strength might be what you need to help stop yourself slipping into bad habits or to curb cravings. Also, it can be the strength you need to stop giving up on things too easily (like self-sabotage). For example, you might need inner strength to avoid mixing with the wrong crowd or getting back with your toxic ex.

How To Work With Crystals For Inner Strength

There are crystals that can assist you in building your inner strength. As always I recommend that you program them (infuse them with intention) for the best results.
If you’re going through challenges, you will have to be extra careful to keep your crystal clear with regular cleansing. For instance, I recommend you cleanse them daily if you are wearing or carrying crystals. If the stone is around you in your home, cleanse it at least once a week until things settle down.
You can also use affirmations with your crystals each time you use them or whenever you feel you need to tap into your strength. Please see a few of my suggestions below.

Affirmations For Inner Strength:

I am strong and brave, I can do anything I want.

I have unlimited inner strength.

I can do this. I’ve got this.

I have the inner strength and willpower to do anything.

I am grounded in my inner strength.

I get stronger and stronger every day.

Crystals To Increase Inner Strength:

    What crystals would help your thyroid gland after you have part of it removed Or all of it I’m not sure what they’re going to take out yet I go in tomorrow for a CAT scan if you could help me with this matter I would appreciate it thank you Roy

    1. Sam Hartridge

      Hello Roy,

      The Thyroid is covered by the throat chakra, so any stone that works with that chakra would be good – mainly blue. From personal experience, I have found Blue Lace Agate and Sodalite to be good. Good luck with the investigations. Blessings to you.

    Thank you for this list! I’m currently job hunting and thinking of using smoky quartz, dolomite and carnelian, esp for job interviews. I like to keep a ‘worry stone’ in my pocket, helps me focus and stay grounded from nerves. Do you recommend anything different or additional that would he helpful?

    Hi Ethan, I have these beads for inner strength. Is it ok to wear them all together on one strand? I string beads and didn’t know if I had to make separate bracelets with the beads or if I can just make one bracelet with the beads you have listed.
    Thank you 🙂

    Thank you for the wonderful information. Your article has given me many ideas for healing myself and a close friend who are going through the same difficult situation.

    Hello Ethan,
    My go crystals for inner strength are Hematite and Blue Kyanite. I am a Scorpio and I tend to absorb other people energy so I use it to block all negative energy and to help me ground me when needed. My Blue Kyanite is paired with my Moldavite to balance the strong energy from Moldavite. They work great together.

    Would Preseli Bluestone be beneficial in a Reikie Crystal body layout on the heart chakra for someone who is suffering from a broken heart after losing her son and husband recently? I do many different layouts but had never heard of this stone and feel like it would give her the inner heart strength she so desperately needs. Thoughts

    TIP: When going through challenges make sure you cleanse your crystals often as they will absorb more negative energy than usual.
