In our monthly theme of Tender Heart, using gem allies like Rose Quartz is powerful magic. Crystals embody the grounding energy of the earth, and Rose Quartz in particular has a soft, soothing energy. This stone is often described as a bubble bath for the soul!
This month, rather than be afraid of our vulnerability, or bracing our hearts against softness—embrace these strengths and open your heart up to tenderness. Make friends with the wild parts of yourself, and allow your strength to shine. As we cradle our tender hearts this month, use this spell to call your power back, and open your heart to pleasure.
Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love and deep heart work. This crystal ally opens us up to all types of love—love of self, love of family, love of friends, romantic love.
The soothing energy of Rose Quartz fosters empathy, reconciliation, and forgiveness of others. Lowering stress and tension in the heart, Rose Quartz clears out anger, jealousy, and resentment of others, and allows healing of heart issues and dis-ease associated with holding on to such negative emotions. Rose Quartz's calming and reassuring energy provides a sense of peace and balance that helps those who are recovering from abuse or trauma heal their wounds.
Avoiding vulnerability is a survival skill in times rife with struggle. We guard our hearts when we've been hurt to protect our softness, but when our armor becomes too heavy for us to take off at the end of the day, when we are safe with ourselves and chosen family—it's okay to break down the walls, tend to ourselves, and melt into our softest version. Empathy, accessing our feelings, and tenderness are all incredibly powerful tools of connection and deeply needed medicine in these trying times. Call on the restorative power of Rose Quarts in this heart-mending ritual!
Rose Quartz Heart String Ritual (adapted from Modern Day Magic)
In this ritual, you will draw all of your heartstrings—those energetic cords—back to yourself. Rather than cutting those cords, you're going to lovingly, gently pull them back to you. You will need:
Begin your ritual by lighting your candle and incense, clearing your space, and taking a few deep breaths. Close your eyes, and as you breathe begin to visualize yourself surrounded by pink light. Say the following spell aloud:
At this moment, within this hour
I reclaim my power
With grace and love.
I draw into myself
What was and is and always will be mine
I give back to others
What was and is and always will be theirs.
I embody my power
I am my power.
Visualize your heartstrings. Gather them all in a bunch at your heart center, and pull them into your chest. Sit in meditation for a moment and feel your power return to you. Hold your crystal, and charge it with your heart power. Carry this stone with you as a reminder of the strength you always carry within yourself.
What does it feel like to call your power back? Do you feel strong, energized, or creatively charged? Be sure to take some time to journal about any thoughts or feelings that arise from this ritual.
From this place of strength - with all your heartstrings gathered - you are empowered to choose where and when you open your heart. You are doing the powerful work of self care, look at you go babe! If you feel your heart strings beginning to wander (after too much time on social media perhaps?) Pour yourself a cup of rose tea and meditate with your rose quartz to center yourself again.Show more
