Wearing rose quartz, or holding a piece of rose quartz in your hand, will bestow a peaceful and calming sensation.
Unlike the hard-edged, pointed crystals of clear quartz, the lovely rose quartz is found in great veins running through Mother Earth like her life’s blood. Use it to manifest compassion and generosity or to call for healing and forgiveness.
Rose quartz is a stone that can help heal the heart, as it works on an emotional level. It can help you become more aware of the love that is all around you and get you in touch with your feelings. It teaches us to love ourselves more, thus opening us up to a greater universal love.
When we don’t love ourselves fully, we are wounded inside, and a wound will always cry out to be healed. Rose quartz heals emotional wounds by giving us compassion and comfort. It can also be used to help us overcome grief.
The stone may support those who have suffered through trauma and pain. If this is true for you, start by forgiving yourself and others. Be gentle because we have all suffered wounds.
Properties of rose quartz include inner peace, tranquility and all matters dealing with giving and receiving affection. It’s message is about self-fulfillment and inner peace, requiring you to love and nurture yourself and those about whom you care.
Work on how to give love, as well as how to receive it. And remember to forgive. From forgiveness can come a path for true healing.
