Something a bit different today. I have recently been getting into crystals and I find their different meanings and properties really fascinating. I started buying crystals when I came across a lovely lady who sells them in Camden market, for a reasonable price, and I just felt really drawn to her. She is so knowledgeable about the crystals and I felt such a fantastic energy from her and her stall.
Of all of the crystals I have always felt most drawn to the Rose Quartz and I have quite a few pieces now. It may be because it’s one of the ‘prettiest’ crystals and is a lovely shade of pink, but I think it’s because of its properties and energy that I feel so connected to it.
Rose Quartz is the stone of the heart, both its colour and energy represent love and caring.
Having it in the house can bring love and protection to its inhabitants.
It is said to speak directly to the heart chakra and can heal emotional wounds, ease stress and bring feelings of peace and happiness.
I use Rose Quartz as a decoration and an active crystal. If I’m feeling stressed or anxious I hold it close to my chest to cleanse my heart chakra and feel that sense of balance. I also have a rose quartz which takes a tea light candle inside, once the candle is burnt the stone becomes warm and is really lovely to sit an mediate with.
I believe in the spiritual powers of crystals, but whether you do or not they are a lovely addition to the home and Rose quartz is certainly one of the most beautiful.
