Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love and infinite peace, promoting kindness and compassion.
It is the most important crystal for the heart and the heart chakra as it teaches the true essence of love whilst bringing deep emotional healing to allow acceptance of love for yourself and others to flourish.
Rose Quartz opens and purifies the heart chakra allowing loving energy to flow freely without the restriction of fear.
Rose Quartz works to soften a hardened heart and allows you to give love to those you resent. It takes away pain and resentment held in the heart and allows you to freely love yourself and others for who they truly are.
Rose Quartz soothes an overactive heart chakra. If you find you give yourself too much in relationships when it's not reciprocated, or wear your heart on your sleeve, resulting in getting hurt, you may have an overactive heart chakra. Other signs include greed, a tendency to dominate or control loved ones especially with emotional blackmail, or a tendency to be melodramatic or overly emotional with issues of the heart.
Place your Rose Quartz on your chest and visualise a soft light healing this area. Repeat this daily until you sense your chakra has rebalanced.
