What are Affirmations?
Affirmations are simple positive thoughts or statements of truth that express a desired or current state of being. An affirmation can help you review your mind set and put into words the situation, event, habit or ultimate goal you have set or are setting for yourself. The process involves you meditating on and repeating affirmations, or positive statements in your mind (and on your lips) over and over again. Crystals can be used to help you focus and enhance your meditation and affirmations. As you meditate on your affirmations
and repeat them, the words take on a new life, new meaning and the potential is released to bring into reality.
Words are very powerful and affect both your conscious and unconscious mind. As this process occurs, your behaviour and habits start to change, one day at a time, day after day. The gradual effect may be unconscious initially, but will soon become conscious. The change starts from within and gradually reveals itself outside. Eventually the internal change will directly affect the external circumstances of your life in a positive manner.
Affirmations trigger natural forces to act in a positive way and inspire you to take action. For this to happen, you need to meditate on, believe and repeat the affirmations with conviction, faith, attention and earnestness. That is when you will start to feel and experience each affirmation at the level of your subconscious mind. The new you will arise from the subconscious mind. You build new habits. You develop a positive attitude towards life. You are empowered. New strength, ability and life are released from your innermost being.
You Create better Circumstances for yourself.
Positive affirmations can fill you with new energy and a zest for life. Remember that positive affirmations are words that help release the power within yourself and the universe to make your dreams come true. Positive affirmations motivate you, inspire you and energise you. Positive affirmations condition and program your mind until you automatically maintain positive attitudes and beliefs. Over time, positive affirmations have the ability to reach and transform the very soul of your being, and your entire life.
Change doesn't happen overnight
Consider the harm that is a consequence of the negative words or affirmations that are either spoken toward you or that you knowingly or subconsciously tell yourself day after day. These words or negative energy mindsets may have been unconsciously acquired from your family, upbringing or environment. No matter how long these have affected you, you can change this wrong thinking pattern. You can replace this through positive affirmations. When you faithfully meditate on and repeat positive affirmations, you will change the thought patterns, habits and images embedded in your subconscious mind. It is not sufficient to repeat an affirmation once or twice, for a few days. You need to keep meditating on it and repeating it again and again until it is firmly embedded in your subconscious mind. Allow the affirmations to become your own - believed and personal to you - through repeated meditation and speaking.
Affirmations in the same category reinforce each other and help you to redefine your perspective and create a new image in your mind. This will help motivate you and compel you to take action to improve your life. Positive thoughts are energising and uplifting, infusing the strength and desire for self improvement. The repetition of the affirmation should be concentrated, strong and emotionally charged.
Gradually as you keep repeating an affirmation, a positive image is chiselled into your subconscious mind and you are gradually encouraged into or pressured into taking positive action. Your mind will accept the affirmation as truth and do whatever it can to change the existing conditions to fall in line with the affirmation until it becomes a reality.
How changes are accomplished
Affirmations help you define your goal or your desire in words. They become statements of what you picture as success for yourself and situations you desire to replace that are in existence now. When you repeat those words in your mind and say them out loud, they create mental images to which your subconscious mind is easily able to relate. These are called creative visualisations of you reaching your goal or fulfilling a desire. If you find visualisation difficult, affirmations may help you as they are easy to understand and repeat. Over time, visualisation will also become more natural to you. Visualisations are powerful because what you see in the mind, you will experience in reality. A clear visual image in your mind will reinforce belief and conviction.
As you repeat the affirmations, your mind gradually accepts them as the truth.
This will directly affect your actions and your behaviour. The power of affirmations will accumulate and push out those negative beliefs, habits and attitudes that are out of sync with the positive ones. Eventually, after some training, your subconscious mind will automatically reject a negative or restrictive thought that crops up and replace it with an equally strong positive and constructive thought. This will inadvertently change your mindset and you will see great improvement in your personality. Your new positive mindset will attract people, circumstances, events and situations into your life, supporting and promoting your future achievements.
How to make affirmations work
You need to believe in them. Think about the affirmations in the categories and find the ones that have an affinity for you (at this time and in this place) and that you are at peace with. Every few months review the lists and see if other affirmation statements call to you and add them as needed and remove those that you no longer need.
When repeating the affirmations, you are not ignoring reality or blocking your mind from creative thinking.
Never ignore reasoning or let go of your common sense.

Crystals and Affirmations
Crystals has a perfect energy balance that are capable of receiving, containing, emanating and reflecting energy. As our thoughts, feelings and desires are also energy this enables you to use crystals to enhance your affirmations.
We have created a list of the most popular affirmation and manifestation stones. It is important to find the crystals that attract you personally rather than select the ones that are most convenient. It is advisable to choose your crystals from the heart as it is your hearts desires that you are trying to manifest.
When preparing your crystals for your affirmations, it is the intention, not the specific action or ritual that is the key. After you have selected the crystals for a particular requirement be it for physical, mental or spiritual affirmations they need to be cleansed.

Be aware though to check before hand that your crystals won't fade in sunlight or dissolve in water.
To key your crystals select the one/s that you want for your affirmations for example if you want to be in good health take up rose quartz in your left hand, relax, breath deeply a few times and then state your intention at least three times. Saying I program this crystal for my creation of "Every cell in my body vibrates with energy and health". Repeat your intentions when you can and keep your crystals near you to enhance your affirmations.
To get the most out of the crystals, we recommend you carry them with you in a pouch made of cotton, leather or silk. When using crystals for aiding in the business world or with personal health, carry them around the lower portion of the body. When using for emotional well being or spiritual growth, we recommend you carry them close to the heart,or at least the upper body. Always trust your inner feelings about how your crystals will work best with you. Every person vibrates slightly differently.
