Gemstone-Adorned Everyday Items
Gemstone-adorned rings, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces are not only attractive but can also be worn with intention as a reminder to keep your focus on your positive affirmations and desires. Dress with consciousness: As you establish your goals for the day, charge the gemstone jewelry you will use as an accent to your outfit with your intentions. You can also adorn your keychain, bags, and cell phone with crystals specifically intended for this purpose. As you see the gemstones dangling or adorning these everyday items, you will be reminded often to maintain your awareness on your goals and desires throughout the day.
