Just in time for Valentine’s Day, let’s talk about the stone most people would associate with it, the Rose Quartz. True to its name, the Rose Quartz is a lovely shade of pink and is just a very welcoming stone altogether. You’ll often see this stone in stores shaped like a heart. It couldn’t be more appropriate, as it really vibrates with your fifth chakra. The fifth chakra is your heart chakra and deals with all the emotional wounds that you carry. Let this stone circulate loving energy throughout your entire aura!
Rose quartz can help to strengthen a romantic relationship, but perhaps more importantly, this little gem can also inspire love of oneself! After all, how can you truly love another with abandon unless you first love YOU. This stone really projects a maternal energy and can be used to help energize the bond between a mother and her child, during pregnancy and after birth. I have had clients who place this stone on their bellies while pregnant. It can be a lovely sensation.
It probably won’t surprise you to hear that this stone is great for your heart and circulation, but it is also good for your complexion. In fact, Egyptians once made rose quartz face masks a part of their beauty rituals! Use this stone on burns or blemishes and envision the lovely pink energy soothing your pores. Although it’s most commonly used for heart chakra healings, it can also balance the base chakra and gently stimulate the sex organs. Could this stone BE more appropriate for Valentine’s Day!? Place the crystal on your skin to get the most impact and cleanse it regularly by running it under cold water, repeating “Let all negative energy leave”.
So, grab that rose quartz and get ready for a VERY satisfying Valentine’s Day, whether you’re sharing your love for you or for someone else. Namaste.
