There is no single definition of success, as it can mean very different things to different people. To me, it seems that success is closely connected to our sense of fulfillment. We can feel deeply fulfilled even if we haven’t achieved huge financial or career success.
We can feel successful just knowing that we have worked to the best of our abilities and put our heart and soul into everything we have done. Even if things did not work out the way we expected, we can still have peace in our hearts, knowing that we have given our best shot at our dreams and goals.
I think more than anything, achieving success depends on how much we believe in ourselves. Oftentimes, a lack of confidence may hold us back from going after our heart’s desires.
Working with crystals can help us find that confidence and drive to turn our dreams into reality. There are many ways to harness the powerful properties of crystals – you can wear them as jewelry, carry them in your pocket or purse, tuck them underneath your bra, or create your own crystal healing grid. Below I will also share a simple ritual you can try.
Here is my intuitive selection of 3 crystals to help you achieve and attract success –
1.) Fire Agate – Best for boosting strength and willpower
Fire Agate is a crystal of passion and joy that fills us with uplifting energy to help us achieve anything we set our minds to. Working with a Fire Agate gives us the courage to follow our passion and to overcome any obstacles standing in our way to success.
The fiery energy of this crystal encourages us to stand out from the crowd and to proudly showcase our unique gifts to the world. At the same time, its powerful protective properties keep us safe from energy vampires and the negativity of those around us.
In case you have overcome one obstacle after another on your road to success, you might start doubting whether you will ever get there. You might feel like you are close to giving up on your dreams, when in fact you might not even realize how close to succeeding you actually are.
Working with a Fire Agate gives us the necessary strength and resilience to keep going and to keep believing in ourselves. The powerful grounding properties of this crystal help balance our emotions and connect us to Mother Earth’s calming vibrations.
2.) Ruby Fuchsite – Best for self-love and inner balance
Ruby Fuchsite teaches us to make our own choices and not to be distracted by other paths around us. Copying or comparing ourselves to others disconnects us from our true nature and blocks the expression of our unique gifts and talents.
Working with a Ruby Fuchsite reminds us that what others want and what society dictates will make us happy and successful may not be what’s best for us. As a powerful Heart Chakra crystal, Ruby Fuchsite guides us towards self-love and helps clear away negative thought patterns that might be holding us back from achieving success.
Ruby Fuchsite’s unique blend of bright purple specks and pale green hues soothe our senses and calm our minds, so that we can make important life and career choices from a place of inner balance and quiet strength, instead of feeling trapped by self-doubt and confusion.
Working with a Ruby Fuchsite reminds us to prioritize our emotional well-being, so that we won’t burn out by overworking and giving too much of ourselves to others. This gorgeous crystal guides us to set healthy boundaries with others and not to allow anyone to drain our enthusiasm and zest for life.
3.) Sunstone – Best for increasing self-worth and confidence
Sunstone brings us the message to trust in our own gifts and abilities, even if we don’t have the support of our loved ones. This crystal encourages us to become our own cheerleaders.
Sunstone carries the invigorating energy of sunshine. Just like sunshine nurtures tiny sprouts and helps them grow into tall plants, our self-belief nurtures the seeds of success we have planted.
Working with a Sunstone fills us with a sense of optimism and helps us take action towards achieving success. The bright vibes of this crystal make us feel like anything is possible.
Sunstone reminds us that we do have the necessary confidence and ambition to turn our dreams into reality. We just have to know deep within us that we deserve the very best life has to offer.
Working with a Sunstone can help boost our self-worth and encourage us to step into our power. When we feel empowered to take steps to change our own reality, an infinite field of possibilities opens up before us, as we become co-creators with the whole Universe.
A simple crystal ritual for self-empowerment and attracting success
Think about the personality traits that you feel are holding you back from achieving success. These could be anything, such as low self-esteem, self-doubt, or the need to control the outcome of situations. Write them down on a small piece of paper. On another piece of paper, write down the qualities you would like to have in their place (courage, self-confidence, willpower, etc.).
After that, sit comfortably in a quiet space. Choose one of the above-mentioned three crystals and hold it in your hands. Clear your mind of all the clutter by focusing on your breath. Feel the energy of the crystal radiating into your whole body.
Now ask the crystal to help you release those personality traits that you feel are holding you back and transform them into the qualities you would like to have in their place.
Finally, give the paper its own transformation by ripping it up and scattering it in the wind, letting it burn, or burying it in the earth.
Feel free to recite the following mantra I have channeled for you out loud or quietly in your mind: I believe in myself and worry less. I am on my way to achieving success.
