Crystal Spotlight: Rose Quartz
I'm excited to share a brand new blog series with you today: Crystal Spotlight! In this series, I'll be sharing information about a crystal with you; its healing benefits, my personal experiences with it, and the ways in which you can use it to bring more balance and healing into your life.
The first crystal spotlight is the ever so lovely Rose Quartz - one of my personal favourites!
What Is Rose Quartz?
Rose Quartz is a very common member of the Quartz family. It ranges in colour from a pale pink, to almost red, due to inclusions of titanium, iron or manganese. Rose Quartz is mined in Madagascar, South-Africa, Namibia, U.S.A. (South Dakota), and Brazil (Bahia and Minas Gerais). It is formed at very high temperatures: between 400°C and 700°C.
Rose Quartz Healing Benefits:
Rose Quartz is such a beautiful crystal. It has a strong resonance with the heart chakra and is known as the stone of unconditional love. It carries a soft energy of peace and well-being. Having Rose Quartz in your energy field will awaken you to the Divine Love that is always present.
This crystal is so wonderful for finding connection with the love of the Divine. It helps you to embody and radiate that connection out to others. It supports all relationships: with yourself, family, friends, significant others, and is a beautiful crystal to call in a loving relationship.
Rose Quartz will support a good night's sleep, and is a wonderful crystal to have in the bedroom. It's also a beautiful stone for children, as it soothes and calms, helping them to remember that all is well.
A lovely support for women, Rose Quartz helps the reproductive system function optimally, and helps women tune back into their natural cycles. It is a wonderful crystal to support the conception of a child. It will help mama find ease in pregnancy, birth and post-partum, and is a beautiful crystal to have in baby's room when they are born.
Rose Quartz allows the heart to receive and give love fully. It helps one find comfort and nourishment in their connection with their Soul selves. It supports one in remembering that love is all there is, and that all things can be fully healed through the amazing power of Love.
How To Use Rose Quartz:
As I mentioned before, I adore Rose Quartz! I have a beautiful piece that I keep by my bedside. Any time I need some extra comfort, nourishment, or just need to reconnect with who I really am, I'll spend some time with my Rose Quartz.
Place it in your hand or lay it on your heart.
I love holding onto my Rose Quartz. Just having it in my hand while I read a book, or close my eyes and breathe, helps me to feel more calm and connected. I use this method for my Reiki clients as well - I give them a smooth Rose Quartz palm stone to hold during their session, which helps them be more open and receptive to the Reiki energy. You can also lay down and rest for awhile with Rose Quartz on your heart. This will help you to tune into your heart's messages and be more receptive to the Divine Love that is always surrounding you.
Place it in your home.
Bedrooms, family rooms, gardens, healing rooms, can all benefit from the loving vibrations that Rose Quartz offers. Place a few pieces in any room that you and your family gather in regularly. The Feng Shui relationship corner (the far right hand corner of your home), can also benefit from Rose Quartz! 2 matching pieces here, placed with intention, can help to support your relationships with your partner, businesses associates, and if you're looking for love, can also help you attract a beautiful relationship!
A Rose Quartz Ritual:
Here is a wonderful way that you can work with Rose Quartz and allow its loving vibrations to permeate your being and your life:
Once a day, find a comfortable place where you can rest, undisturbed. Set a timer for 10-15 minutes. Place your Rose Quartz on your heart, belly, or in your hand and close your eyes. Take a couple minutes to breathe deeply. When you feel yourself relax, bring to mind the word, LOVE. See it in your mind's eye, and repeat it to yourself slowly, silently. Let the feeling of love wash over you. Let your mind wander to times that you truly felt the feeling of love. Maybe that was by yourself in your favourite place in the world, or with a person you truly love. Let the feelings of love envelop you. When your time is up, slowly come to seated, and bring the Rose Quartz to your heart. Silently affirm to yourself, 'I choose love'. And move back into your day.
Doing this ritual daily will help you resonate with the frequency of Love, and support you in creating a life that is filled with it.
Always remember to cleanse your crystals regularly, especially when you are working with them daily!
Wishing you lots of beautiful heart opening experiences with your Rose Quartz! ♡
