For those that have ever suffered with depression they will know that feelings can range from sadness to utter despair. Unfortunately, there are not many of us that manage to get through life without going through some rough patches, Depression is a form of low mood and unwillingness to activity that can affect a person's thoughts, behaviour, feelings and sense of well-being. People with a depressed mood can feel sad, anxious, empty, hopeless, helpless, worthless, guilty, irritable, angry, ashamed or restless. Depression can also make us more susceptible to illnesses due to it effecting the immune system.
Crystals are amplifiers and transmitters of energy. Their job is to protect your energy with some crystals even absorbing the energy for you. The crystals will take on negativity that is being directed at you. And help awaken your best self.

Positive affirmations are statements that assert the truth of something positive, it is the shifting of negative thought patterns to more positive ones. Using affirmations can help you focus on what you really want to do in life. It can be an empowering experience and will open you up to new possibilities. Basically you decide what you are doing the affirmation for and why. No one else has to be involved and you can programme yourself to learn whatever you want.
