Rose Quartz is the Self-Love Stone

Well the obvious is that one is a plant and the other is a rock, but what is remarkable with this comparison is that both access the portals to the heart. When I see a rose I first think of its scent which makes me feel wonderful especially if the rose was given by someone I love. Rose Quartz however points me to a mellow feeling that is harder to describe.

How many of you can truly say that you really love yourself? Real Self Love, I propose, is the first step to develop our consciousness, without it we are caught in the  conflicts and dramas that we see in the world daily, which cause endless suffering. How is that so? To really Love is to give up how something is supposed to be, it is to truly accept what is, so when we direct that love to include ourselves we accept who we are without judgment.

Rose Quartz in my experience is a powerful healing tool. I feel that it helps to connect me to my inner child and to the gestation time before birth. Our first beginnings on the earth may seem hostile to many and in healing early traumas, Rose Quartz may help to protect the vulnerable state we were in at that time. By feeling safe and protected in a healing situation, we may dare to approach and find reconciliation of unfortunate events in our early life.

How to work with Rose Quartz? Rose Quartz is Yin Fire, the feminine aspect of the fire element in the Crystal Moon Mandala. Obtain a piece of Rose Quartz and before bed place it on your heart. Think of yourself as being in a bubble of Rose Quartz creating a soft pink field around you. Let that soft but powerful field purify any negative thoughts and emotions you may have about yourself in the same way a loving mother would soothe her baby to sweet sleep. Invite a sense of peace and surrender to your inner guidance. You truly know how to heal, if you listen deeply.

Given a perfect pink rose we may feel acknowledged and loved by another. Rose Quartz on the other hand teaches us to love ourselves, and in that state we would not need outside approval.

You might have experienced challenges and not knowing how to go about changing your state of affairs. Like most people, I experience my life as a mix of the good and the bad. What we normally do not see is how to work with our difficulties.

Do you consider an obstacle to be a good thing? Probable not, at least not at first, but after you have gone through it, you probable gained a great deal from your ordeal.  A shift in how we view an experience makes a vast difference in how we can integrate it. When I stay present I also keep my energy close by and not wasted in an emotional reaction.

Crystal Practice. I have applied some crystal practices to my life that make my life  a bit easier. Usually I tell myself that an event is just an event, and it is my mind that assigns it any value. Amethyst has helped me to see that changes are  good, I have for about two years now kept two amethysts by my workspace or by my bed. I feel that the openness to accept change is most important.  How you choose to experience something shapes your life.  I feel that by surrounding myself with Amethyst, my attitude have changed, and I waste less time worrying, and I can instead use my energy wiser to make most experiences valuable.

How to? It sounds good on paper but how does one actually do this? What I do first is to really like my crystals, I appreciate their beauty or how they feel to me. So every time I notice them they make me feel good. I place them so they fit in my space nicely. I guess I am a visual person and fussy about how things look. But for another person it might be experienced differently, perhaps color is more important than shape and feel. Then work with that.  I state my intention with the placement (why I want these particular stones in my space).

Crystal Grid. What I described so far is creation of  a Crystal Grid. You would need at least two preferable three crystals to create a grid. When I am inside my grid, I function better and my work goes smoother. As is the case around my computer where I work, I set up the conditions for how I do my work. I have noticed that I am more effective with my amethysts present. In addition I have a couple of grounding stones as well, more on that in another blog. Especially I have discovered that I don’t take things too personal if it doesn’t go as I planned it.  At other times I have had the Amethysts grid my bed. It is quite effective to make room for acceptance as well. When I change I can evolve, and that is what I want, to be the best possible. You might try this out as well.

Amethyst is Fiery Air in the Moon Mandala. It is the intuitive sparks in the intellect that transforms dread into creative action. Change is good.
