Rose Quartz "The Stone of Love"
Properties: Love | Romance | Harmony | Friendship | Kindness
Benefits of rose quartz:
Opens up the heart chakra:
If you're looking for love (or heart chakra healing), rose quartz is probably the crystal to turn to. It's the ultimate stone of love and has a very soft and gentle energy that heals and mends your heart, allowing you to open yourself up to the energy of love.
Encourages self compassion:
And that goes for love from others but also love from yourself. As we know, the two go hand in hand, and rose quartz can help when it comes to clearing out the things that keep you from loving yourself and others fully while encouraging trust, compassion, and emotional healing.
Releases emotional baggage:
Rose quartz is like a balm for your heart—one that can help heal old love wounds, forgive lovers, and release any lingering emotional baggage.
At an atomic level, our universe is in a constant state of vibration. Crystals are extremely good at holding a stable vibration due to their crystalline lattice structure. We, on the other hand, are a very complex mix of vibrations that can easily be disturbed and become unbalanced which makes us sick and unwell. All kinds of things can affect our vibration, from external influences such as electromagnetic and geopathic stress, to internal ones such as constant negative thought patterns and suppressing emotions.
Crystals emit steady vibrations that help to create Balance within oneself and Zen into the spaces around us. It is for this reason that for thousands of years crystals have been used for their powerful healing properties.
In order to maintain positive energy for our crystals to perform at their best, it's important to make sure they are properly cleansed, charged and activated.
Crystals can pick up negative energies very quickly so it is important when you first obtain a crystal and even after you have been using it for some time that it is cleansed. Before it arrives in your at your home, crystals pass through many hands absorbing different energies that could affect your own balance. There are a number of cleansing methods, our top 6 are listed below. Depending on whether your crystal is raw or polished and also which type of crystal, you should be careful and choose an appropriate cleansing method.
Hold your crystal under a stream of water such as a river, waterfall, or from the tap for a few minutes.
Leave your crystal to soak in seawater or water mixed with salt. Fill a glass bowl and leave the crystal for anywhere between 1-24 hours, then rinse.
Pass your crystal through the rising smoke of sacred herbs such as sage, cedar and lavender or incense sticks.
Half-fill a bowl with sea salt/cooking salt. Place your crystals directly into the salt for between 1-2 hours and then rinse.
Half-fill a bowl with sea salt/cooking salt. Place a smaller container/shallow glass and half-bury this glass into the salt. Then place your crystals directly into the empty glass for 1-2 hours. (You can also pour water over the crystals.
Play a tuning fork, chime or a Tibetan singing bowl near your crystals, to cleanse your crystal through soft sound vibrations.
It is important that the crystals you use are charged when you first buy them and regularly for them to perform at their best. With experience, you’ll be able to feel whether or not your crystals need charging. Some crystals once cleansed feel ‘raring to go’, others still feel ‘flat’, like they need something else.
By setting our crystals with positive intentions, we are manifesting the world to return to us the positive life experiences that we seek.
