Affirmations work by training the mind to act as if you already manifested your desire. This may sound familiar if you have been learning about the law of attraction. Part of the law of attraction explains that if you behave/act/feel as if you already have your chosen desire then will change your vibrational frequency to match (or attract) that reality and desire to you like a magnet. Therefore, the more feeling you put into an affirmation, the more you are aligning yourself with that vibrational state which will attract what you want into your life.
Affirmation are positive statements in the present tense which often begin with "I am..". If you are feeling unworthy or unloved you can say, "I am loved and worthy" instead of "I want to stop feeling unworthy or unloved" which is a negative statement or "I am going to be loved and worthy" which is the future tense. If you are interesting in learning more about creating good affirmations then I highly recommend reading books by the author Louise L. Hay. I highly recommend her book, "You Can Heal Your life".
Years later, stones still give me beautiful affirmations when I do crystal healings and I consistently add them in both in person and long distance healing sessions.
Exercise you can try: Choose a crystal or stone, hold it in your hands, and write down the first affirmation that comes to mind. Don't even think about it or second guess yourself. Then put it down, pick up another crystal or stone and write another affirmation. Do that over and over until the information flows easier and easier. Most blocks in channeling crystals and stones comes from overthinking everything and second guessing yourself. Just let the information flow out onto a pad of paper or your computer. What affirmations did you receive and for what crystal? Feel free to comment below :)
If you still aren't feeling ready to channel affirmations from crystals and stones then combine any affirmations with the crystals you are working with to enhance your healing or manifestations. For instance, since citrine is known as the abundance crystal, you can add affirmations to your altar or a crystal grid for abundance by holding the citrine and saying positive affirmations like, "I am abundant" before placing it in the grid or altar space. Or if you don't know what stone to work with then work with Clear Quartz. It is a highly programmable stone and will amplify your intentions.
