Crystals and gemstones don’t just look pretty, they can be used for a wide range of spiritual and healing practices - including magnifying self-affirmations. So, what are self-affirmations, and how can crystals help with the process? A self-affirmation is a statement that it spoken out loud or written down, that addresses your inner-self.
These statements are often intended to build your self-esteem or help bring about a positive and healthy change in your life. They are a great way to combat the negative self-talk that all too many of us engage in, or simply to set intentions that help us grow into even more healthy and happy individuals.
Setting positive intentions and cultivating feelings of self-love is always going to be a good idea, with or without crystals. Adding crystals to this practice can help to magnify intentions and affirmations because of their specific energetic vibrations. These vibrations can help you connect deeply to your inner self, and boost the power of said self-affirmations. Further, wearing your affirmation magnifying crystal as jewellery can also help carry positive thoughts and intentions with you throughout the day.
How To Magnify Self-Affirmations Using Crystals
Speaking or writing self-affirmations is a simple process, that is shown to produce positive results. The affirmation should be addressed to your inner-self and should consist of a statement about yourself that you wish to highlight in your thinking. This affirmation should be spoken allowed, although it can also be helpful to have your affirmations written down. Holding a crystal in your hand while you say these affirmations aloud is a powerful way to magnify them.
What Should My Affirmation Be?
The first step in this process - which involves working out what self-affirmation or intention is right for you, can be challenging for some.
On the one hand, your intention or affirmation might be obvious. Perhaps you want to be more creative in your day-to-day life? In this case, your affirmation could be:
‘I have access to my creative inner spirit. Creativity flows through me.’
The process can be more challenging for others, especially for those with poor self-esteem. Negative thinking and poor self-esteem can be difficult to identify in ourselves. Sometimes self-defeating thought patterns start to feel like a true reflection of your situation, rather than what they are - a negative perspective that serves nobody - especially not you! It can be difficult to step outside this negative perspective, especially if it’s a habit that you have built up over the years. If you can recognise that you are suffering from habitual negative-thinking or self-talk - you have already done the hard part! Setting intentions for self-love or growth and using your crystals to help magnify them is by far the easier step. If you are working on self-love or building your self-esteem, a good affirmation could be:
‘I love myself, I accept myself, I forgive myself. I am worthy of love, respect and happiness.’
What Crystal Is Right For Me?
Different crystals are effective in magnifying different types of self-affirmation or intention as a result of them being connected to different bodily chakras. A bodily chakra is an energetic part of the body that is often associated with a bundle of nerves or internal organs. Each bodily chakra relates to a different set of emotional and spiritual qualities.
For intentions relating to cultivating joy and happiness in your everyday life, Yellow Jasper or Citrine are great picks. These brightly coloured gemstones help you connect with your solar plexus chakra, which is located in the lower chest/upper belly. These stones can also help with cultivating self-confidence and motivation - key emotional qualities ruled by the solar plexus chakra.
For affirmations relating to fostering Self-Love and Self-Esteem - rose-quartz is an excellent choice. This stone is connected to the heart chakra, and is often termed the ‘stone of love’. While this is often assumed to be for romantic intentions alone, rose-quartz is also an effective gemstone for magnifying and cultivating self-love. In this sense, rose-quartz can also be used in affirmations relating to the healing of old emotional wounds. For Self-Love there are other beautiful crystals, we have created a wonderful set called 'Self-Love', this crystal set is a perfect starter set.
For affirmations relating to connecting to the present and healing from past traumas, Unakite is an excellent choice. This stone is also a good option for those who want to make self-affirmations relating to stepping out of their comfort zones and leading adventurous lives. This stone also balances hormone issues.
Amethyst is an excellent gemstone for magnifying self-affirmations relating to personal growth - be it spiritual or emotional. Amethyst is associated with the third eye chakra, which rules emotional qualities such as intuition and open mindedness. It is also a great healing stone, so if you are looking for an all round stone this is the one for you.
