Heart Chakra Meditation for Loving Yourself

rose quartz

Over the past week I immersed myself in heart chakra stones as part of a weekly Chakra class I’m teaching. I wanted to put together a collection of Heart Chakra stones and jewelry as part of my class for people to experience.  I took out all of my pink gemstone.  The more I work with Rose Quartz the more I fall in love with this stone all over again.   All pink and green stones are Heart Chakra stones. There are many pink and green gemstones in the mineral kingdom and I have a vast collection of these heart stones.  It is easy to overlook the lovely soft Rose Quartz.  As I worked with Rose Quartz I began to connect once again to its amazing energies.

While the vibration of Rose Quartz is soft and gentle, it is also very powerful.  This stone reminds us that love begins with ourselves. Rose Quartz is all about self love and self nurturing.  

Meditating with rose quartz can help to release emotional wounds that hold our hearts closed. Its softness allows us to slowly and delicately look at the hurts we experience and one by one let it go and open back to love. Meditating with Rose Quartz gives us the opportunity to be surrounded in love energy. Here is a short meditation using the Gemstone Rose Quartz.

While laying down, place a Rose Quartz on your Heart Chakra.  Close your eyes and breath slowly and deeply, quieting the mind.  Begin to feel the vibration of the Rose Quartz on your Heart Chakra. Visualize the color pink. 

Begin at your feet and slowly move the soft pink color up and over your body until your whole body is bathed in the loving, compassionate and peaceful energy that is Rose Quartz. 

Allow yourself several minutes to be in this calm and loving space. When you feel ready place both your hands over the stone as it sits on your Heart Chakra and once again become aware of your breath.

With each in breath, breathe in the loving energy of the Rose Quartz, with each out breath, breathe out hurt, fear, worry or any other emotion that is blocking your heart.  Do this several times until you begin to feel a peacefulness, a calm throughout your body. 

You can say to yourself, I am love, I am loved, repeat several times.  When you feel ready, place your hands down by your sides and feel love, feel your heart warm and open to receive all the love that is here for you. 

When you feel ready open your eyes and give yourself a great big hug.

Rose Quartz can help us open to receive love from ourselves and others.  Do you have difficulty being kind to yourself?  This is your stone.
