The Love Stone: Rose Quartz


Rose Quartz

As a crystal healer, I use lots of different powerful stones in my sessions. I also wear crystals on a daily basis and even sleep with one each night. Having the vibration  in my energy of these magical beings has literally changed my life. As a matchmaker, I am particularly fond of Rose Quartz.

Rose quartz is often called the “Love Stone.” It’s energetic hallmark is that of unconditional love that opens the heart chakra. This makes rose quartz a stone for every type of love: self-love, family, platonic, romantic, and unconditional. As a variety of quartz, rose quartz has high energy, and this strong energy can enhance love in virtually any situation.

In the psychic and spiritual realms, it is often used to attract love, for love spells and charms. It is also used to ease the process of transition in dying to make the transition gentle and surrounded by the unconditional love of the Divine. Rose quartz can also be helpful for dream recall and dream work.

Emotionally, it can be used to balance emotions and bring peace and calm. This calm emotional balance brings stress relief and easing of anxiety. All these things carry energies of forgiveness, tolerance, and compassion to the fore, enabling us to see the good in both ourselves and others.

Rose quartz in crystal healing helps heal and release emotional wounds and traumas, even original childhood or sexual traumas. Fear, resentments, and anger can be removed. Trauma from abuse, neglect, and lack of love can be ameliorated, by bringing in Divine unconditional love and enhancing our inner awareness of such. This also brings ease of overwhelming or unreasonable guilt, bringing healing from this which we impose on ourselves. It can raise self-esteem and a strong sense of self-worth. Its loving energies teach us to apply this love to ourselves and thereby find ourselves more worthy.
