Enneagram mantras are officially a thing. Given how the Enneagram system helps us understand ourselves, it only makes sense to use mantras that correspond to our particular Enneagram type.
Ah the Enneagram types… one little number can shed so much light on understanding our inner nature, how we navigate the world, help us better understand the people in our lives, and even how to practice the best forms of self-care for ourselves!

Type 1: The Perfectionist/Reformer Mantra
The first of the Enneagram types is purposeful, driven by principals, and while responsible and hardworking, may struggle to give kindness and tolerance to themselves – often feeling like they’re carrying the weight of the world.
Your Enneagram Mantra: I am enough
Type 2: The Giver/Helper Mantra
Enneagram type twos, as the name implies, are everyone’s best support system and helper, as the most generous and giving number of the enneagram types. It’s important to turn that loving compassion and support inward, too.
Your Mantra: I am deserving of self-care. Self-care is not selfish
Type 3: The Achiever/Motivator Mantra
If you’re a type three, you’ve likely never met a goal you didn’t crush or a deadline you didn’t meet. What doesn’t come quite so naturally is going with the flow, relaxing or sitting in stillness.
Your Mantra: I am doing enough and approve of myself as I am
Type 4: The Individualist/Romantic Mantra
An Enneagram type four isn’t afraid of their feelings – they’re sensitive and creative and revel in the waves of emotion. This at times can cause them to fall into the comparison trap or question if they’re special.
Your Mantra: I am seen and loved for exactly who I am
Type 5: The Investigator/Observer Mantra
The type five on the Enneagram chart is deeply intelligent, cerebral, and observes the world with a wise eye. Connecting with their inner feelings isn’t always the strong suit for a typical five, however.
Your Mantra: My needs and feelings are worthy of being seen and met
Type 6: The Skeptic/Loyalist Mantra
Pragmatic, future-focused, and a planner, a type six craves security and can often feel anxious about what lies ahead.
Suggested Mantra: I have all the support I need
Type 7: The Enthusiast/Generalist Mantra
Life is meant to be enjoyed for an Enneagram type seven – who more often than not finds herself as the center of the party and living life in full color. FOMO is a constant for many type sevens, who struggle to live in the moment.
Your Mantra: I am right where I need to be, right now
Type 8: The Leader/Boss Mantra
A type eight enneagram is a boss and knows it – they truly own their own power and authority. Relinquishing any can be a struggle, and their headstrong nature can sometimes push others away.
Your Mantra: I can let this be easy
Type 9 (The Peacemaker/Mediator):
The last of the Enneagram types, type nines value harmony and peace in the world around them, and can sometimes struggle with feelings of worthlessness as they overlook giving nurturing energy to themselves.
Your Mantra: I am willing to show up for myself
