February is the perfect month to deal with matters of the heart. Meditate deeply and find self-love and gratitude, and then spread it around to everyone you meet!
In February we recommend using Rose Quartz. Have a large piece in your healing room or meditation area. This would be the perfect time to use your Rose Quartz Healing Mala!
The ancient civilizations of Rome and Assyria were among the first to use this beautiful, powerful stone for healing and for jewelry. Once its healing properties became known, Rose Quartz quickly became popular with the Egyptians as well. The Egyptians also believed that the stone helped to prevent wrinkles and cure the effects of old age.
Greek and Roman myths were the first to attach the “symbol of love“ to Rose Quartz. Today Rose Quartz is commonly known as, “The Love Stone.” Native Americans believe that this “love stone” can be used in amulets to resolve jealousy, broken hearts, anger and disappointments, bringing love and harmony to the wearer.
Though it’s thought of as the stone of love, it’s not just romantic love that Rose Quartz embodies. The Rose Quartz stone stands for unconditional love and, used with applied meditation, it brings the consciousness to a deeper level. Rose Quartz leads us to forgiveness, understanding and opens the heart to a different perspective.
Rose Quartz’ healing properties will allow you to deepen your relationship with not only your own loving spirit but also with your partner’s. In that same way, Rose Quartz’ healing energy can open up a gentle energy that assists you in achieving deeper compassion. It also opens the heart to forgiveness and understanding. What a powerful way to send out healing energy!
Associated with the element of water, Rose Quartz’ healing capabilities are naturally fluid. They rid one of toxic energies and emotions. Rose Quartz can help to heal one from a great personal loss or the loss of a loved one. It can illuminate the love between a mother and child, and it can remove misunderstandings between people in general.
Rose Quartz promotes deeper friendship and aligns with cupid in attracting love between two people. It has the capability to open the heart and allow love to flow.
Rose Quartz is the stone of universal love. Its brilliant pink color brings a loving calmness and reassurance to the user. Rose Quartz dispels negativity and protects against environmental pollution, replacing it with loving vibrations and peace. This calmness opens up trust.
Rose Quartz is said to strengthen and balance the physical heart and circulatory system, and release impurities from body fluids. It has been used to speed up any recovery through love, and its calming effects reduce high blood pressure, aids in chest and lung problems, and helps heal the kidneys and adrenals. Rose Quartz is known to be helpful in increasing fertility and is said to protect both the mother and the unborn fetus from miscarriage.
What could be a better time to pick up and use your Rose Quartz Mala and chant your favorite mantra, projecting unconditional love and healing to all!
