Combining the Four Elements – Using Affirmations & Intention with Crystal Grids
Element 3 – Affirmations or Intention –
Affirmations are powerful, and should be a short, powerful statement, that can be used with or without combining them as part of your crystal meditation. My preferred method is to write, read, and say aloud a short and direct affirmation, that is meaningful to me.
Here are some examples of affirmations:
- I believe, trust and have confidence in myself.
- I attract only good, loving and kind people to me and into my life.
- I make wise decisions regarding my life, my family and my finances.
- I release anxiety with every breath and have the power to bring calm to my mind.
- I radiate and attract love.
- I am patient and understanding.
- I choose to be healthy and to make healthy choices.
- I am intelligent and feel comfortable meeting new people.
- I am grateful for the blessings in my life.
- I see the good things in my life.
- I accept the abundance that is flowing into my life.
- I am open to accept all the positive opportunities that come my way.
- I am excited about today and all the prospects that await me.
- My world is filled with love, light and happiness.
- I create a positive environment for my children.
- New opportunities await me.
If you prefer not to write, read and say aloud your affirmation, seeing your affirmation in your mind, or with intent, may be what works best for you. Clearly see your affirmation / intention as a picture and let it settle in your mind. Picture your intention as part of you and then send it out with the knowledge that it is true and what you desire. You can focus your intention on your crystal, crystal grid, or whatever you have set up in your sacred space to assist you and help you on the path to achieving your goal.
Choosing an affirmation that is meaningful and close to your heart are two important pieces that should not be overlooked.
Write your affirmation on a sticky note or a piece of beautiful parchment, whatever feels right for you at the time. If you are using it with a crystal grid you can read it aloud, place it under the grid and either leave it there or carry it with you in a personal amulet pouch or medicine bag (a bag/pouch containing crystals or other items with significance for you).
You can place it under your pillow, or in your pocket, purse or wallet and read it whenever the feeling strikes you. You can also create an Affirmation Bowl or Blessings bowl to place your affirmation in and feel comfort in knowing it is there and what your goals are.
