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.
