Positivity stones are a collection of five polished stones: Three stones represent worry, anger and stress; the other two stones represent gratitude and smiles. The user selects a stone to represent each emotion. Channeling worries, stress or anger to the chosen stone, washing it with soap and water, and allowing the negativity to be washed down the drain represents the cleansing of that emotion. The gratitude stone is a storehouse for appreciation, and the smile stone is a reminder that every smile can instantly replace negativity. The stones come in a velvet pouch that includes directions for their use. Go to the ARISE website to purchase the positivity stones:
