The Meaning of ROSE QUARTZ
Rose quartz is used for love and to create harmony in relationships. Known as the stone of love it supports unconditional love, particularly promoting self-love and deep inner feelings of worth and peace.
In the body
The rose quartz is used to heal the heart, remove toxic emotional blockages and replace them with nothing but peace and love. In a way it creates space for new, positive thoughts to aid the healing process. It is also one of the main stones used to aid depression and empower more feelings of self-love towards that person.
Ever since my first exams I have been intrigued as to what powers healing stones have.
My family brought my first one on the run up to my exams hoping it would calm my anxiety symptoms. In all honesty I didn’t understand at the time what I was meant to do with this stone but now I want to find out what properties they may have.
As a Student Paramedic I am a firm believer that medicines have a cause and effect on the body in a good way and can change someone’s situation from unlikely to survive into a much more comfortable zone. This addresses the physical aspects of illness but what about the mental healing of a person. This is something we are not taught and is classed as an alternative medicine; however, I am a firm believer that in conjunction with medical help, patients also need a strong mental force to aid healing.
I am interested in how this healing can be done in a spiritual way and what healing stones can do for someone who may need help.
