Setting Intentions with Affirmation Stones

Christina Herbin, a licensed professional counselor and owner of Harmony Counseling Center, says, “What we think about and say to ourselves can change how we feel and what we do. There is a way to harness the power of words through affirmations—positive phrases or statements used to cope with uncertainty, motivate ourselves, encourage positive changes in our life and boost self-esteem.” Research studies have found positive effects on performance, problem-solving, focus, health and even the grade point average of college students by using positive affirmations.

            Purchasing an affirmation stone from Harmony Counseling Center to visibly display serves as a reminder of what we are affirming in our life. “Carrying the stone or meditating with the affirmation stone can help create a deeper connection to what we want to see happen in our life. Affirmation stones can help in manifesting goals and creating a healthier mind/body connection by being more intentional with our words,” Herbin says. “Combining the use of daily affirmations with our intentions will reinforce positive thinking to rewire the brain to manifest what you are affirming into our life.”
