Fear of success or failure?

Did you ever follow your dream only to come to a dead halt midway and didn't quite understand why?

Or do you self-sabotage your dreams before you even start to take action on them?

Perhaps you are just not a “good finisher” of projects.

If any of this sounds like you, you may have a fear of success or a fear of failure. Let’s consider each one.

The fear of failure is the simplest one to understand because failure is looked upon as a bad thing. So fear of failing and looking bad can certainly stop you from trying anything. Easy to understand, right?

But why might someone have a fear of success when success is looked upon as a good thing? Well, for some folks, success means overwhelming responsibility, added pressure, and the possibility of not being able to hold up to the new standard of success. This is a biggie for so many people. There’s a fear of walking into one’s own power.

Whether you have a fear of success or a fear of failure, it means that you have a block in the solar plexus chakra. The Solar Plexus is all about self-confidence and empowerment. The energetic block in this area can simply sound like: “I don’t think I can do it”.

Well, I’m here to tell you that you probably CAN! You start by clearing this block and release the fear!

Here are some Crystals that can help:

Liz Simpson’s Book of Chakra Healing recommends Citrine, Calcite, Sunstone and Malachite crystals

The citrine, calcite and sunstone are obvious choices because they are yellow in tone, which match with the Solar Plexus chakra color. Malachite may be surprising because it’s a green crystal which is the color of the heart chakra. But Liz tells us in her book that malachite connects the heart chakra to the solar plexus which “promotes the compassion needed to ensure that personal power doesn’t become misplaced.” I have personally used malachite for my Solar Plexus and find it to be super powerful stone.

I got my gorgeous malachite  and citrine crystals here from Earthegy.


And if you enjoy using affirmations, here are a couple of good ones you can try on in addition to the Crystals:

“I have all the energy and wisdom to fulfill my dreams”

“I deserve to have my dreams fulfilled now”

Blessings to you,
