Some of the many benefits of Rose Quartz are encouraging self-love, healing the emotional body, easing heartache, relieving loneliness, releasing repressed hurts, promoting forgiveness and offering inner peace. Rose quartz is a stone of unconditional love and it gently and compassionately opens the heart chakra to all forms of love: self-love, family love, platonic love, and romantic love. Now that we have a general idea of the qualities of Rose Quartz, let’s take a little closer look at this amazing little gem.
Did you know that Rose Quartz is the stone of love in Marriage? You can experience more sparkle and passion in your intimate relationship when you keep a little piece of rose quartz in your pillow case. And with this said, it’s easy to see how Rose Quartz is known as the stone of universal love and romance. It helps the user to feel a strong sense of self-worth, therefore feeling worthy of love and acceptance for themselves as well as from others. When worn in jewelry the wearer feels a sense of emotional balance and peace.
How precious is it that Rose Quartz has a gentle vibration of love for the owner. It gives inner peace and helps in all matters pertaining to love in all its forms. Rose Quartz opens the heart to love. It is a lovely stone for people of all ages because the high energy of quartz gives Rose Quartz the property of enhancing love in virtually any situation. I honestly believe that we all can use a little more love in our lives. Especially when it’s a beautiful, cool and soothing pink little gem!
Emotionally rose quartz brings gentleness, forgiveness, compassion, kindness and tolerance. It raises one’s self-esteem and helps heal emotional wounds and grief, bringing peace and calm. Rose quartz removes fear, resentments and anger. It can also heal and release childhood traumas, neglect, and lack of love, in part by enhancing inner awareness. It can help with reconciliation with family and others. Overwhelming or unreasonable guilt is eased by Rose Quartz. All in all it is a very soothing and happy stone.
Physically, Rose Quartz is used in crystal healing to benefit the heart, the circulatory system, fertility, headaches, kidney disease, migraines, sexual dysfunction, sinus problems, throat problems, depression, addictions, ear aches, slowing signs of aging, reducing wrinkles, spleen problems, fibromyalgia, and reaching one’s ideal weight / weight loss. Of course we would never discontinue any medication prescribed by our health care professionals on our own. However, adding a little Rose Quartz into our experience, be it through wearing jewelry or carrying a piece in our pocket will definitely enhance the healing process. Rose Quartz is also helpful and protective during pregnancy and with childbirth. It is also sometimes said that rose quartz is helpful for supporting brain functions and increasing intellect. You will look younger too as Rose Quartz also helps as a rejuvenator to the skin. It is said that washing the face in water charged by rose quartz will help fade wrinkles and keep the skin young. I am definitely going to try this beauty secret out and I hope that you will let me know if it makes a difference for you!
In closing I would like to add that I have always loved and have been drawn to Rose Quartz since I was a child. One, because I love pink and two, because I have always been naturally drawn to quartz. Ask my father how many coffee cans of rocks he threw out of the garage over the years! And then ask me how many I ran out and picked back up! We still laugh about it to this day. And my wonderful husband, Wade, beholds the great honor of lugging huge quartz rocks down the mountain side when we visit my sister Cindy in New Hampshire! Well, at least the ones that are too heavy for me to carry myself! Coming from personal experience, I can attest to many of the statements above because there have been times in my life where my heart was totally broken, I was breathlessly sad, or just feeling emotionally off. Holding or wearing some Rose Quartz brought me great relief. I have actually seen it take on new fracture lines as it drew out my sorrows and replaced them with a sense of peace and acceptance in the moment. What a beautiful stone to experience…I just love Rose Quartz along with all of its amazing qualities and feel that it is a very worthy little stone to have in your collection.
Sending love your way for a happy, healthy & prosperous day!!
