I believe certain stones belong in every crystal collection. These include clear quartz, amethyst, and rose quartz. Rose quartz helps to give us the gift of loving ourselves. Self-love is important for everyone, but it is especially vital for people who are interested in spiritual development.
Many spiritual disciplines advocate the abandonment of self (known as ego), and while this may be ultimately the greatest liberation. l’ve often noticed people trying to abandon self with the enthusiasm with which they’d dump a particularly odorous bag of garbage. When we don’t love ourselves fully, we are wounded inside, and a wound will always cry out to be healed. Rose quartz
is an instrument of that healing.
Rose quartz helps to give us the gift of loving ourselves, attuning us to the energy of unconditional love and heals the heart. lt calms and reassures, bringing about deep inner healing. Rose quartz
helps those who have never received love in its truest form to access the heart, aiding in positive affirmations of self-trust and self-worth. Lastly, it teaches us how to love oneself, encouraging self-forgiveness and acceptance.
You can also sleep with rose quartz. The pain of the past may come up in dreams; you can more readily handle this if you affirm before you go to sleep that you are ready to release the past.
