The Healing Properties of Rose Quartz

 

Rose quartz is one of my most favourite crystals. If you know me, you know I’m a big love bug and rose quartz is amazing for the heart chakra. Rose quartz is a light pink member of the quartz family and it’s readily available in tumbled or natural forms. Some of the meanings associated with rose quartz are unconditional love, self-love, romantic love, a mother’s love, and friendship. Because of its connection to love, rose quartz is associated with the heart chakra.

 

Heal Your Heart Chakra

A chakra is an energy center in your body. A blocked heart chakra can include symptoms like heartburn, an inability to forgive, and loneliness. When your heart chakra is blocked it makes it really difficult to manifest love of any kind. Rose quartz is a great crystal to use when you want to unblock your heart chakra and open yourself up to love.

 

Rose quartz is the stone of universal love. To heal your heart chakra with rose quartz, first set your intention. Tell your crystal you want to use it to heal your heart. Once your crystal knows its purpose, you can begin to use it. There are many ways you can begin using your crystal. Depending on the size of your crystal, you can put in your pocket or bra and go about your day like your normally would. You can hold it in your palm while you meditate or even lie down and place it over your heart while you visualize your heart chakra opening up.

 

Other Uses of Rose Quartz

In addition to healing your heart chakra, you can also use rose quartz to bond with your baby, improve your sleep, or stimulate your sensuality. To bond with your baby, simply place the stone on your stomach during pregnancy.

 

If you’d like to experience better sleep, place a rose quartz under your pillow or on your bedside table. You can also use rose quartz to help your children combat fear of the dark and have wonderful dreams. Depending on their age, you will need to make sure the crystalis in a safe place or that it’s large enough they can’t put it in their mouth.

 

Rose quartz is also known to be an aphrodisiac. To use as an aphrodisiac, try putting it in your bath before bed, tucking it in your pillow case, or leaving it on your nightstand.

 

The Benefits of Working with Rose Quartz

After working with rose quartz on a consistent basis, you will feel more accepting of yourself and others. You will approach situations with a new found calmness and understanding and you’ll be open to receiving love from yourself and others. Giving love unconditionally to yourself and others will also become easier for you.

 

If you’re feeling lonely, having trouble forgiving others, or have a general sense of sadness, give rose quartz a try. If you’re not sure how to get started, I’m here to help.
