Rose Quartz – Stone of Love
Rose Quartz is known as the love stone, it can open up the heart chakra to all forms of love: self love, family love, platonic love and romantic love. It can be used to balance emotions and bring the user peace and calm,
The rose quartz produces a constant energy, what some of us don’t realise, is that with this stone things can indeed get worse before they get better, especially with affairs of the heart. The energy works to remove old blockages and encourages the qualities of forgiveness, patience and understanding, so if you have been carting around a bit of old baggage expect to have to do some inner work when you use this stone. Let’s say the rose quartz doesn't necessarily let sleeping dogs lie.
Don’t be put off by this; rose quartz can be a tremendous help in matters of the heart and by working with its energy can be as much benefit as working with your own personal therapist but of course like therapy it can take time before you experience or feel a breakthrough. If you do choose to carry or wear a rose quartz, then you must be patient, The rose quartz is the stone of unconditional love and certainly the most important stone to use for the heart chakra. It will teach the true essence of love and purifies the heart on all levels bringing you inner healing and self-love. This stone is very popular in crystal therapy.
