February is the month for a warm drink on a dreary day, for restarting some of those New Year's Resolutions we set in January, and, of course, for love. Love is present in every month of the year, but it is sometimes unbearably present during February. Chocolates, teddy bears, and secret admirers aside, this month gives us the perfect excuse to exercise a little more love than usual.
Love comes in various forms: it can be platonic or romantic, familial or unconditional. Each is expressed in unique ways, distinct from culture to culture, individual to individual. No matter how different love appears, though, the most important of all kinds of love is self-love.
Rose Quartz is the little pink stone of universal love. It is the stone of the heart: it restores trust and peace in relationships while encouraging us to release the tensions of past relationships. It clears out anger, jealousy, and resentment of others, allowing us to heal and open our hearts to let more love in.
No matter where it’s directed, this crystal helps us to remember love’s pure intent. The pink crystal opens the heart chakra and fills it with the warm and gentle vibrations of love, protection, healing, positivity, and emotional health. Just like the effects of love, the warmth found in this crystal doesn't just affect you: these soft vibrations also radiate like warm sun-rays to those around you, whether it be to your partner, your family, or a stranger.
Rose Quartz can easily fit into any unique lifestyle:
- Meditate with your stones. Relax your vibes and let it resonate with your energy.
- Carry it with you. Hold it in the palm of your hand, or slip it into your pocket/purse for benefits all day long.
- Feng shui in your home, your office, or wherever you need a little boost of love the most.
- Create a crystal grid to embody your intentions and serve as a reminder of love's intent.
This month, treat yourself to some real love: let it's unconditional, warm vibrations radiate from you and, most importantly, resound within you. You deserve it.
