Welcome to my July Angelic Crystal page. This year is flying by and I am experiencing many changes, on many levels. All of them feel wonderful and life-affirming. I personally love change, I love challenges, I love to grow spiritually, I love to evolve. This month I wish to dedicate my article to a very important subject LOVE and one of my favourite Archangels, Chamuel.
Love is very important in our lives. When we have love in our life we feel better in so many ways. Throughout our lives we experience many different types of love. Love for our partners, family, friends and pets. Love is often conditional or dependant on others, which is why we feel a deep sense of loss when we have no one to love us back. I am so often asked about angels and crystals for attracting loving relationships and especially how to find your Soulmate or 'Twin flame'.
A Soulmate is a person with whom you feel a deep natural affinity or compatibility. Soulmates represent our soul family, the ones we have many experiences and often lifetimes together. They help us grow and evolve, create and transmute karma. When we are created by Source, we are created in groups, the souls in this group are known as our soulmates, they share the same frequency or vibration. A soulmate is someone you are close to at a deep soul level, and with whom you may have shared many lifetimes. You have deep love for each other and a lasting spiritual bond. We can have lots of soulmates in our lives at any one time and they come to us to help us grow spiritually.
There is also the related concept of 'twin flames' or 'twin soul', these are thought to be the ultimate soulmate. Twin flames are considered literally the other half of our soul. Twin flames are said to be the most fulfilling of all our relationships. Your soul evolution will determine your chances of meeting and staying with your twin flame. Meeting your twin flame will accelerate your spiritual growth and soul-evolution.
Now for the science bit:
Chemical Composition: SiO2, Silicon dioxide
Crystal System: Trigonal Hardness: 7
Habit: Usually found in massive form, the impurities of titanium or manganese that give it the pink hue also prevent the growth of large individual crystals. Large, single points of Rose Quartz have been shaped from larger rough pieces.
Color: Pale pink to deep pink. The star rose quartz containing rutile crystals has asterisms. These star effects can be seen when light reflects off the polished surface.
Rose quartz is one of the most pleasantly seductive varieties of quartz. Rose quartz is usually too cloudy or pale to be used as a cut gemstone, although a few exceptional pieces are found with enough clarity and colour to make fine gems. Most gemmy rose quartz is used as cabochons, where the clarity is not as important as the depth of colour. Rose quartz is also a very attractive ornamental stone and is carved into popular spheres, pyramids, healing wands and obelisks.
Rose quartz is found in Brazil, Madagascar, and South Dakota in the USA. Brazil is also the only source of true well-formed crystals of rose quartz. All rose quartz was believed to be only massive, found primarily in the cores of pegmatites. This lack of crystals is somewhat of a mystery, because quartz crystallizes into well-formed crystals in all its other macroscopic varieties. So amazing are the crystals of rose quartz that the first ones discovered were dismissed as 'fakes' by mineralogists from around the world.
Physical: This wonderful stone has been used to great effect to treat heart problems on all levels, those who are soul weary, Alzheimer's disease, senile dementia, Parkinson's disease. Great benefit has also been gained from easing the pain and speeding the healing of severe burns and scalds. It makes a wonderful gemstone essence and is said to keep the skin young and supple.
Emotional: Rose quartz transmits a soft love energy, which is soothing and calming to the emotions. The vibration or resonance signature of rose quartz is good if a person has been assaulted in any way. It is wonderful to use in mid-life crisis when dissolution of old patterns and reassessment is imperative. The paler the rose quartz goes colourwise, the wider, higher and deeper the love vibration extends. The very pale natural rose is highly tuned and sensitive; it carries the promise of spiritual fulfilment.
Mentally: Rose quartz is very good for children, the new born and those yet to be born. It is also ideal for those who are giving birth to their inner child or any new venture; the red within the pink activates the energy, while the white spiritualises the endeavour.
Psychologically: Rose quartz can fully balance the emotional body. It is used to attune to the love vibration. The rose quartz ray works dynamically on the heart chakra, gently cleansing and then transmuting all stored putrefied negative issues of self-worth, self-confidence and self-acceptance. It contains within its beautiful pink mandala the ray of hope. The pink warmth melts and dissolves resistance to allowing the full manifestation of love into every corner of the heart. It will allow the integration of positive energy within all levels of the chakra system, the positive energy being love, compassion, understanding of unity within diversity, bringing tolerance, forgiveness, and ultimately the complete expression of universal love and self-love to every corner of the microcosm and macrocosm.
Spiritual: The asterised rose quartz is the most powerful gemstone of the pink ray and as such is sought after by crystal therapists and those who work as 'channels for the Angels and Ascended Masters'. The rutile needles contained within the rose quartz structure stop any unwanted outside interference from both the physical and spiritual worlds. Rutile is used for healing and balancing the aura by repelling negative energy. It works on the physical, etheric and astral bodies.
Magic: Many people who tread the Angel path are passionately aware of the potent force of this Divine pink manifestation. It is ideal to carry and wear in stressful situations. It is good to use after operations or dental surgery. Rose quartz is comforting, it mollifies, it is a peace offering. Pour pink on troubled waters. It is affordable and so useful; it is a give-away crystal. Many crystal people carry spare pieces of rose quartz just to give to others in times of stress. Rose quartz is also humble; it teaches humility by truly understanding the unconditional love vibration. It is a good ally in times of anxiety, when life is just one long struggle.
Meditation: The well-formed crystals of rose quartz from Brazil are so beautiful and seem especially focused for directing the energy of the pink ray. It has been used in gemstone essences, Earth healing ceremonies and pyramid activation. The energy appears to be incorruptible and unlike normal rose quartz never seems to need the same cleansing procedure, only a light cleansing with the intent. It has been placed in several special sites around the planet to affect planetary peace. It is the talisman of love.
Additional Information: It is excellent in a crisis and it has been documented many times that the wearer of a rose quartz pendant has had the stone shatter on impact of 'bad news'. This stone really knows how to love you, it will even teach you 'sacrificial love'. It will sacrifice itself for you; rather it breaks, than your heart breaks.
Affirmation: My soul dances to the music of universal peace and love.
Crystal Placement: For increasing self-worth , and to bring a deep sense of relaxation, place 12 tumbled rose quartz evenly around your body. While the crystals are in place, relax with your eyes closed. For protection or during difficult emotional times, wear a rose quartz pendant. Placing a large chunk of rose quartz in each bedroom, fills your home with the love vibration. Placing a large piece of rose quartz on your desk at work will promote harmony.
Cleansing: Hold the stone under running water for several minutes and visualise imbalances flowing away. Then put in the sunlight to dry.
