Rose Quartz is a harmonizer for the emotional aspect. Its energies are calming and peaceful and it facilitates that feeling throughout one's being. It lays the groundwork or foundation for one to experience love and to someday understand and practice love's true essence - unconditional love.
Love as an emotion or even a concept is simply not understood by most people on Earth. Often one is emotionally "wounded" or hurt by love but this is, in fact, a misperception. It is the expectations of the other not met that create the wound or hurt. It is a choice to remain in a relationship that isn't in harmony and a wrong belief that one needs to "make it work". Rose Quartz gently works to remove negativity and allow space for a proper understanding of love. It's consistent, calm energy that warms the heart can be used as an example to help to see and cultivate love.
On a physical level, Rose Quartz brings ease to the body. It reduces stress and anxiety, deepens the breath and relaxes the shoulders. This gem soothes the skin, restoring a youthful appearance and can be used to treat burns and blisters.
Rose Quartz also has a positive effect on the heart lessening tensions and restrictions.
The time has come to release the self-created emotional bonds which hinder.
Rose Quartz is the gem to start the process. It cultivates patience and understanding as it opens one to the common thread that is shared with all.
