As the year rolls on and our personal and work diaries fill with endless tasks, it is no wonder that failing New Year Resolutions is as common as setting them! The good news here is we are NOT to blame! The mistake we are making is setting resolutions when instead, we should be setting intentions. Ashley Bellino of Stoned Crystals understands this and has created a step-by-step guide on how to set ourselves up for success for our 2018 goals and how to get back on track with our goals when they fall to the wayside.
According to Stoned Crystals, resolutions have negative connotations which doesn’t help us achieve our goals. By focusing our energy on ‘fixing’ the things that are ‘wrong’ with us we may be met with feelings of anxiety, depression and failure. A lot of us have that little inner voice that continually attacks and punishes us. Combine this with a New Year resolution that constantly reminds us of our shortcomings and the mental torment begins. For example, the resolution of losing weight implies that you are currently overweight and triggers a chain of negative thoughts and even visualisations that occur each time you think of the resolution. These constant reminders of what we are lacking only works to charge self-criticism, not positive change.
Stoned Crystals have recently developed their ‘Intention Cards’, a new product designed to help guide our focus and goals in life. When creating and setting intentions we are programming our minds with positive mantras and affirmations towards the goals we seek. The Stoned Crystals Intention Cards includes 6 x instructional cards, 18 x intention cards and 1 x acrylic stand all encased in a luxe card intention box. For those wishing to experience the power of setting their new years intentions with the help of crystals, Stoned Crystals have released ‘Crystal Mini-Packs’ in Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz, Labradorite, Amazonite and Amethyst. Retailing for $34.50, the Stoned Crystals Mini Packs are a great present for the crystal enthusiast or a great help to those who feel they lose focus of their goals.
I think this is a fantastic concept, I love crystals and I've always used oracle cards, so combining intention cards and crystals really works for me.
