Rose quartz is a must-have for every crystal enthusiast and a great ally for supporting the energetic shifts on our planet.

How to Use Rose Quartz

Spiritual Wellbeing

Rose quartz neutralizes negative emotions, clears toxic attachments, grants clarity on truth and purpose, aids spiritual evolution, and dissipates fear. As we become more aware of the radiance within by knowing the illuminated heart, we can more easily manifest and fulfill life’s purpose. Rose quartz also cultivates unconditional love free of drama and expectations a doorway to inner peace and satisfaction expand as we become aware of the directives of the true heart.

Emotional Health

Rose quartz balances the heart chakra, releases issues of abandonment, depression, jealousy, and low self-esteem. It creates a connection to the highest essence of god within, granting serenity and peace to become who we are. It brings issues to the surface that which needs to be addressed and released, it demands attention be paid to the heart, which brings inner confidence and calm, and it helps us radiate with compassion and sincere love for those we encounter.

How to Use Crystals for Meditation

Meditation is one of the surest ways to inner states of knowingness and bliss. Stepping outside of ordinary reality and feeding the stillness within should be a cornerstone of all spiritual development.

When we add the blessings of crystals to our meditation, we can amplify our experiences, accelerate our growth, and gain an even greater connection to the natural world around us.

Crystals are a living frequency and will naturally help to deeply and honestly heal the spaces we may have been avoiding. As the addition of a crystal can give us perspective, we can learn not to take things so seriously and effectively heal our hearts.

When we bring crystals to our meditative practice, our spaces expand to include the natural elements. Rose quartz meditation crystals can remind us of the love all around us and bring us into more sincere love toward ourselves and others.

Using rose quartz to meditate can help ease emotional disharmony as it reminds us of the gentle love offered to us daily. It further soothes emotional trauma which may keep our hearts closed and can be a blessed ally for calling in greater personal and romantic love.

Implementing Rose Quartz Meditation Crystals

When you need a love refresher or are in deep turmoil and craving ways to feel the abundance of love, this meditation can guide you back to your own inner wisdom. While you can quickly use this as a pep-me-up, you can also deepen your practice by lengthening your meditation to gain even greater blessings.

  1. Clear your crystal by running it under clean water.
  2. Introduce yourself to your crystal.
  3. Lie down in a quiet space, free of distractions. Lying on the floor with a mat is suggested to keep you present during the mediation.
  4. State aloud your intentions for connection and healing, so the frequency of the crystal can support you there. Speaking out loud also invokes your larger guides and angel to offer their support of your space.
  5. Rest the rose quartz on your heart. Place it securely for you may be mighty distracted if it slides off when you are deep within.
  6. Allow yourself to feel the unique energy of the rose quartz. What frequency is it emitting? How does it feel?
  7. Visualize the soft pink color expanding from your heart, filling up each space with a more resounding sense of peace and love. Let this color and vibration move until it fills all of your body.
  8. Bathe in the compassion and bliss for several minutes allowing this frequency to re-program your heart, mind, and body.
  9. When you’ve soaked up all the love vibes, place both of your hands over the stone — this posture is frequent in both kundalini and the Egyptian mystery teachings.
  10. With your hands on your heart over the rose quartz, allow your breath to be your guide. Breathe in more love, compassion, and peace and breathe out anything that hinders your access to your true heart field. You should begin to feel at one with the frequency of the rose quartz allowing yourself to slip deeper into her generous blessings.
  11. Say aloud several times: “I am loved. I am love. I am the embodiment of the light within.” Repeat this mantra until you feel electric with its truth.
  12. When you are complete, gently wiggle yourself back into your body and open your eyes. Thank the rose quartz for her teachings and remind your heart that this is now your highest frequency. Acknowledging this shift will train your brain to lock in this vibration as a constant state of being.

As you practice meditating with crystals, you will discover new pathways and eased access to pure fields of energy. Though this specific rose quartz mediation is for the heart, you may use other crystal allies as they come into your awareness working with other chakra centers and topics as you are guided. The meditation is universal and will help you expand your light, walk your truth, and fuel a world of greater conscious love.

Your Heart Chakra

As we embark in greater spaces of self-love, keeping the chakras balanced is an essential piece of energetic hygiene. Yet it is the myriad gifts of the heart chakra which are most crucial to personal growth. The heart chakra is located in the center of the heart (the physical heart is on the left and etheric heart on the right) smack dab in the middle of your chest.

Known as the fourth chakra, it often resonates with a green vibration and is the pulsating center of the entire chakra system. The Heart Math Institute has been a pioneer in identifying how the energetic field of the heart affects our expanding consciousness. It is the most powerful electromagnetic field in the body and as we radiate our deeper states of love, we are able to quite literally affect greater joy and love throughout the planet.

The heart chakra is the gateway to the God that lives within. When we can become one with its teachings, we embody the light and become living ambassadors of the New Earth.

Drunvalo Melchizedek has spent much of his teaching guiding us back to the ways of the heart to connect with the infinite presence that resides within.

In my own experience during the Flower of Life Workshop I found a past life memory (and teacher!) waiting to be discovered in my heart. It filled me with such awe and profound reminders of my purpose. I was and still am deeply and forever changed by the ways I learned to meditate within my own heart center and it has irrevocably directed my life’s path.

While we can honor the heart as the center of our personal universe, so too are there consequences if we fall out of harmony with the frequencies of the heart. To fall out of balance in the heart will adversely affect everything in the body and can be the cause of stress, sickness, and disease. Much of the disconnection we feel in this modern world can be attributed to closed heart chakras as we imagine ourselves to be alone and isolated from the people around us.

Picture instead a space where we feel the presence of love in everything from the birds to the trees and everyone we meet! This is the blessing of the Rose Quartz crystal meditation for it can easily move us into greater fields of unified love.

Maintaining vigilant awareness of the heart center is a building block of all spiritual practices. Every spiritual teaching throughout the world honors that the heart is a potent space of transformation and it is in getting to know our hearts which can best support our evolution

6 Ways to Become Fully Present With Suffering

Life is about learning balance and how we interact with the world around us. It is a constant learning experience, to which we will become familiar with all of the emotions that a human being has, some of which are more pleasant than others.

Suffering on Earth is derived from the collective emotion held within humanity, which is why it is so important to learn to heal yourself first to help heal the planet.

As many great teachers of the past and present have taught us, often times it is not the experience itself that is the problem, it is how our human conditioning has taught us how to react. We’ve all experienced suffering in various ways.

Though it is uncomfortable and ugly, it is also very important to love each part of ourselves as human beings; to do that we have to understand the full spectrum of the human experience…the yin and the yang, the light and the dark. They co-exist together for a reason.

Aim to Be Like a Child

If you have children or have been around a small child, you will know that their experience of life is very different than yours. Their reactions are very in the moment. When they are upset, uncomfortable, or hungry they cry. There is no holding back, and no misunderstanding how they truly feel.

As we get older we learn what is considered an “acceptable” way to act in society. We learn that we can’t just have a meltdown anywhere when we are feeling upset. There are very specific circumstances that allow us to cry or feel angry, and some of us even go as far as to completely shut down our ability to feel our true emotions. I call this being “emotionally constipated!”

Babies’ ability to feel fully in the moment is a gift, because once they fully feel it, they release it instantaneously. There is no need to relive the experience later. It often takes very little to distract them with a new idea and change their emotion quickly. As we get older it is important to remember that innate wisdom within our bodies, because they react in direct correlation with the information we give them.

Fully Experience Your Emotions in the Moment

When your life is turned upside down and emotions are all over the place, take yourself into the moment and simply feel whatever disturbance is going on without resisting it. Take a chance and look silly in public if you need to.

When you can fully experience your emotions in the moment{.inline-media .inline-video} and let them wash over you, that turmoil will not collect in your body in a negative way. It is only when you deny and resist it that it collects and becomes unhealthy.

When you begin to feel imbalance in your life, the most effective way to take care of yourself is to honor where you are without judging the experience. Don’t compare yourself to others, because you are a unique individual!

Your experience is your experience, and there is no right or wrong or normal and abnormal. You are creating your body and life experience every day, and it’s unlike anyone else’s body or life experience.

6 Ways to Be Present with Suffering

Here are some steps you can take in a moment of distress and suffering to relieve yourself:

1. Stop whatever you are doing, and go inward. Listen to your body and become fully present.

Don’t try to change the way you feel in this moment. Instead, feel it for what it is without resisting it.

Say in your mind, “I honor this feeling of ______, even though it makes me uncomfortable or scared in this moment.”

Focus on the sensation, and surround yourself in a beautiful picture that feels comfortable, loving, and safe to you. I like to picture myself in a field of flowers with a soft breeze blowing through me, washing away anything that no longer serves my highest good.

2. Let the emotions fly

Let yourself go! Experience the anger, frustration, sadness, joy, excitement, fear, surprise, disgust, disapproval, remorse, and all the in-betweens. The goal is to express it.

However, it is also important to remember to make sure you are not putting anyone in danger while you are doing this. Whatever you are feeling in this moment is perfect; there is nothing wrong with it!

3. Trust any messages that come through your body as divine guidance

You might notice some sensations, ideas, or thoughts through your body as you become fully present in your experience.

When we become still, we are more receptive to receiving divine guidance from our higher selves.

Trust this loving guidance, or simply soak in this beautiful light that is holding you. We all have access to it when we call upon it.

4. Stay Present

Stay with the feeling until you feel it has fully washed over you and can be released. Take your time and don’t be tempted to rush through it.

Remember your well-being is the most important thing right now. You cannot be present with others until you are fully present with yourself.

5. Wait for Release

Just like with a baby, sometimes it takes five minutes, and sometimes two hours before we reach a point of release, but it eventually always comes.

Most of us force ourselves to get up and “shake it off” before we’re really ready. All that leftover emotion builds up and is stored within the body, despite our belief that it is gone once we choose to think it’s gone. Once the release happens, the weight falls off and you can now resume your day with your full presence.

6. Remember That You’re Not Alone

When you’re feeling suffering of any kind in life (and there are many!), remember you’re not alone. Remember to claim your strength and ask for help when you need it. You can’t do it all on your own.
