Pillow talk: If you are single, rumour has it that keeping a small piece of Rose Quartz under your pillow while you sleep can help attract the perfect partner into your life. It also opens up your heart to self-trust and restores any broken faith in love.
Rose Quartz is THE crystal for all things to do with love. Whether that is self-love, friendship love, family love or romantic love, Rose Quartz emits a calming sense of peace and reassurance to the beholder. Like a warm, comforting hug from a dearly beloved – deep inner wounds can be resolved through the strong unconditional love energies residing in this crystal.
As Rose Quartz is strongly connected to the heart chakra, expect a deep heart awakening if you meditate with Rose Quartz daily. The motherly-love qualities of Rose Quartz helps to nurture and tend to painful or broken hearts – releasing stress, expectations and resentful energies; reassuring you that everything will be okay.
Instead of looking for love, let love come to you. Rose Quartz gives you the self-confidence to love yourself first, which then attracts the love that you deserve. A harmonious heart is irresistible to true love and Rose Quartz is there to remind you to let go of expectations and to accept yourself wholeheartedly.
