Chakras And Rose Quartz
The chakra most closely aligned with, and affected by, the vibrational frequencies of Rose Quartz is the Heart chakra.
The benefits of using Rose Quartz when working with the Heart chakra are many and varied. It will gently open a Heart centre that has closed off from emotional expression for whatever reason.
It brings warmth and comfort to a Heart that is suffering from trauma, assuages feelings of grief at the loss of a loved one, and nurtures a Heart chakra that has been “battered” by abuse or betrayal.
We need to keep our Heart chakras open at all times, unlike the other chakras, which we close down at the end of a session, and Rose Quartz is an excellent stone for doing this.
Simply wearing a piece of Rose Quartz on a pendant or thread so that it rests near to your chest serves to remind you that you are always loved and that it is safe for you to act in a loving way towards others.
An open and healthy Hart chakra improves our interactions with the world and with ourselves on many levels. It encourages better judgment in what we accept or reject and brings clarity of thought in the realm of personal relationships.
Rose Quartz is especially good for removing negative vibration from the etheric body and brings a nurturing, nourishing energy to all of your cells.
Programming Rose Quartz
If you want to program Rose Quartz with a specific intention, you can do so by holding it in your hands and focusing on your intention. You can also use affirmations to help you focus on your goal. For example, if you want to attract love into your life, you could say:
“I am open to love in my life. Love is abundant and surrounds me always.”
