Manifesting Love with Rose Quartz Crystals
This guest post is from Alexandria Barker, who has a gift for combining the magic of crystals with the power of law of attraction. Here she shares how to use crystals to attract love and more:
By combining the power of crystals with your focus and intention, you can create the kind of relationships you truly desire.
Rose quartz is my favorite stone for love. Not only does it encourage self love, it helps draw new love to you, or deepen existing relationships.
A piece of rose quartz under your bed will attract new love or renew existing love relationships, depending on your intention. You can also place a piece in the relationship corner of your home, the farthest right rear corner from the front door.
It’s also a great idea to wear rose quartz as a pendant – especially a heart shaped one – so your heart chakra is continually bathed with the beautiful energy of this loving stone. Speaking of bathing, you can place a few rose quartz stones in your bath and literally submerge yourself in this loving gentle energy.
Rose quartz is also my favorite stone for healing and balancing the heart chakra. It’s considered to be the most important stone for both the physical heart and the heart chakra.
The heart chakra, located at the center of your chest, is the chakra of love, compassion, devotion and generosity. A healthy heart chakra enables you to love deeply. It fills you with gratitude for the opportunity to live life and the desire to give back. The more open your heart chakra is, the greater your capacity for love.
Rose quartz is the crystal of peace and unconditional love. It opens the heart, teaching the true meaning of love, and brings deep healing and self love.
This lovely pink stone has a calming, reassuring quality that also makes it ideal to use for traumas or crisis.
From a law of attraction perspective, rose quartz is a great stone to work with because it promotes self love. This is very important, because without self acceptance you won’t have much success attracting the things you really want — you won’t think you deserve them!
It’s also a wonderful stone to hold while doing your affirmations. Carry or wear it throughout your day to remind you of your intentions.
Before you begin working with your rose quartz, it’s important to take time to cleanse it of any negative energy. No matter where you obtained your stone, you have no way of knowing the degree of negative energy it may have absorbed from the time it was mined to the time you bought it. However, cleansing and purifying your stone is easy to do.
Simply hold the stone in your left (receiving) hand and cover it with your right hand. Imagine the space you’re in being filled with white healing light from the Universe. Ask that the rose quartz be cleansed with universal love and universal light.
When you feel this is complete, it’s time to really get to know your stone. When holding it in the palm of your hand, ask to be connected with it’s highest energy. Ask it to work with you for your highest good and the highest good of all concerned, for whatever purpose you choose ( such as attracting self-love, a new mate, or renewed love with your present partner).
Once you connect with one piece of rose quartz this way, you will automatically have the same connection with all rose quartz you come into contact with (though they will still need to be cleansed and purified.)
Is it any wonder it’s my favorite stone for love? Try these tips and your love life will soar – starting with your love of self. (GVU members can access Alexandria’s call on healing chakras with crystals here.)
