Carnelian inner fire affirmation
I don't know about you but I have a bit of a love / hate relationship with affirmations. On the one hand I love how they can help focus my mind or stabilise my emotions, but on the other hand, if they're not in total alignment with my current situation or state of mind, my ego quickly steps in to point it out!
Getting your affirmations past the ego
With that said, I truly believe if you can get your affirmations past the conscious mind and in to the sub-conscious, then they have the power to make a massive, transformational mind-set shift.
A powerful carnelian affirmation
So I thought I'd share a powerful 'inner fire' affirmation which has been inspired by carnelian:
"I awaken my creative fire and feel the freedom of confidently expressing my purpose and passion."
Notice that it doesn't go straight in with "I am confident and creative" because if that's not your current reality then the conscious mind or ego will immediately jump in and state "impossible".
Impossible vs I'M possible!
Instead, this affirmation is designed to trigger the energy of possibility, taking 'impossible' and transmuting it to I'M possible in the sub-conscious, which is where we want to initiate powerful mind-set shifts.
Program your crystal and surrender to Source.
If you have a piece of carnelian or carnelian jewellery then you can use it to focus your mind by looking at it while you repeat the affirmation so it can serve as a visual reminder of your intention. Additionally, if you believe in a higher power you could call on that for support, like this:
"Dear [higher power of your own understanding], help me to awaken my creative fire and feel the freedom of confidently expressing my purpose and passion."
Surrendering to a higher power of my own understanding (I call it God), and asking for support reminds me that I don't have to have everything figured out using my own power, I can trust that the universe has been set up by God to empower me, and that's a pretty good feeling.

And as always
