Gemstones and Crystals are said to have many healing properties with each stone having its own characteristics.
One of my favourite stones that I use in my healing sessions with clients is the Rose Quartz.
It is a beautiful light pink stone that brings a sense of calm and peace just looking at it.
It is most commonly known as the ‘Love Stone’, as it helps instill unconditional love of all areas: relationships & romantic love, self love, family bonds, friendships and love of life. It will enhance love in any situation while vanishing negativity. When held or worn, most people say they feel soothed and more calm, which helps to lower stress.
Emotionally here are some common properties of Rose Quartz:
- Calming & Peaceful
- Increases Self Esteem
- Increases Self Worth
- Balances emotions
- Heals emotional wounds & trauma
- Soothes Anxiety
- Soothes grief
- Releases fears & anger
- Eases Guilt
On a spiritual level, Rose Quartz can assist in:
- Attracting love
- Dream recollection
- Expanding the heart chakra
On a physical level can benefit the:
- Heart & Circulatory system
- Sexual Dysfunction
- Headaches & Migraines
- Protective in Pregnancy & Childbirth
Rose Quartz is readily available in all gemstone and crystal stores as well as bead and hobby stores. It is commonly set in jewelry as well for its beautiful light pink colour.
It is an inexpensive stone, so buying a few to place around your house, on the beside table or in your pocket is recommended.
Use your intuition on whether to wear it or have it placed near you, both are beneficial.
As mentioned above, I have used Rose Quartz in many of my healing session with clients. I have seen right before my eyes, the power of this stone.
As I was starting to release some negative energy from my client, she started going through an emotional release as well. She was crying almost uncontrollably, and while I encourage full releasing by not holding back emotions, I could clearly see she was becoming uncomfortable with the force of the emotions arising. I placed a large piece of rose quartz on her chest over her Heart Chakra and another on the base of the rib cage over the Solar Plexus. Instantly within 20-30 seconds she was calmed. While she was still tearing up and crying, I could see it was in a more gentle manner as the heaving sobs had been soothed.
Rose Quartz is a very energetic stone that can benefit you on many levels. I believe it is a ‘must have’ stone and encourage you to have a few of your own!
