How do you let go of someone you love?

Let Go, Break-ups

At the time of a Full Moon we often talk about letting go.

Releasing people, things and situations that you feel or know are no longer supporting you in manifesting your dreams into reality. Or, indeed, do not support you in becoming the person who is living the life that you are wanting to align with.

But, how easy is it to just let go?

How easy is it to let go of a relationship and ex that you love, as well invested time and energy into?

How easy is it to let go of a painful memory or experience from your past? Maybe even one that dates back to your childhood.

I know that it’s not always that easy.

Even with the cord cutting meditations, forgiveness practices and ‘letting go’ rituals available via Google, YouTube….. Still some people struggle with letting go and releasing, especially when it comes to love. Letting go for a short while only to fall right back into the arms of that lover and into the familiar chaos.

What’s up with that, huh?

Well, from both my own experience and that of others I’ve noticed a few things that hold people back. So, let me share them with you.


1. You don’t let go of love

When people let go they think this means letting go of the love. The thing is: Can you ever let go of what you perceive to be true and/or unconditional love?

What tends to have the tightest grip is attachment to the experience and the perceived outcome that you believe arises from letting go. (PAUSE. Take that in for a moment.)

This might include:

  • Being single for ever
  • What people might say
  • That person meeting someone else first
  • The regret or shame

Experiences are a natural part of life. With each one and each personal encounter being an opportunity for growth, blessings and new learning. This is what I’ve found often leads us to aligning with what we want, who is truly for us and our best selves.


2. Your motivation

Let’s be real. Sometimes people hold on for selfish reasons. Reasons that are motivated by fear, lack, scarcity or control. All of which are the total opposite of love.

Be honest about why you are holding on and ask yourself if this is really an expression of love.


3. You are not a victim

When faced with the situation of having to let go some people start asking questions such as:

  • Why me?
  • Why is this happening to me?
  • Why can’t I be lucky/find love?
  • What’s wrong with me?

These questions are natural at first yet I’ve found that it doesn’t help to dwell on them. Why? Because you tend to plunge yourself further down into the rabbit hole.

Three questions to ask instead would be:

  • How does it serve me to hold on?
  • How does if serve me to let go?
  • Which brings me to closer to my Divine purpose?

Notice the difference in the energy of these questions and how empowering they have the potential to be.


Letting go is often a process and not something that happens overnight.

Give yourself time and space.

Connect with your mentors, coaches and guides who can often give you fresh perspective or wisdom because they are not in your situation.

Use the guidance that comes through with discernment.

Trust and have faith that you’ll bloom from the experience. Stronger, wiser, more loving and beautiful than before.

Healing with the Angels

I didn’t choose Angelic Healing (Reiki). It chose me.

You’ll often hear practitioners say a similar thing. Having been introduced to a particular modality at a pivotal time in their life. I was much the same.

Although I’d never heard of Angelic Reiki it popped up in my search as I looked for a Reiki level 1 course one summer.

It was never my intention to share it with others. In fact, I simply wanted to use it to feel more calmer, relaxed and grounded in my stressful job.

Little did I know that Angelic Reiki would take me on a journey of karmic soulmate + past life revealing + clearing, heart healing, self love, clearing money energy blocks, physical healing……. Healing myself before helping others.

The reason I share it now because I wholeheartedly believe in it.

WHAT I’VE LEARNED FROM MY ANGELIC REIKI PRACTICE
With Angelic Reiki I’ve found that even if you don’t always feel the energy shifts within, during a session, the healing is still being done on a cellular and energetic level. Maybe releasing you from a connection in another space or time.

The Angels know where to go.

Your soul knows what you are ready to release. Facilitating this for your own growth, expansion, alignment and wellbeing.

What I’ve found to be key when it comes to healing is awareness by which you notice that is coming up for you after the session. Then there’s having this readiness to do the work because healing is work YOU do with the Angels.

I always say:

“Healing (with the Angels) doesn’t make all your shit just disappear. Sometimes there is work on your part to be done too.”

Often things will be bought to the surface. People reflecting an age old story or belief will surface. Not to drag you down the same road but to make you aware of your own BS.

The choice you make is to continue playing the game with the cards you know or play with new rules and new cards.

Be aware and take action if you want to heal, align and evolve.

Heart + Self Healing

Self and heart healing

I came to self and heart healing almost a decade ago. Like many, it was a time in my life where I felt as if my heart had broken into a million pieces. Not yet recognising that rock bottom would be the place where a new, better version of me and embodiment of love would be created.

Maybe as you read this now you are in the midst of your own heartbreak. Experiencing sadness, pain, loss, resentment or anger and feeling as if there is no hope for you where matters of the heart are concerned. Whereas I won’t tell you how to think and feel, I can share with you some insight into heart and self-healing. Doing so, with the intention to inspire you to take those tentative steps towards self and heart healing, as I did 10 years ago.


HEART RESEARCH + THE ANCIENTS

Heart Healing meditation

The mind is given much kudos for being a driving force in supporting you to manifest your intentions into your life. With little regard given to the heart. In fact, being heart centred or focusing upon your heart is considered wishy-washy or irrelevant.

However, recent research has shown that the heart is effectively like the second brain. Holding within it much wisdom alongside the memories and feelings of yesteryear. Due to its strong electromagnetic field (5,000 times stronger than the brain), whatever you feel within your heart can be felt by other people several feet away.

It is this very idea of the heart as such a powerful organ of the body that has been echoed throughout time, namely by the Ancient Egyptians.

During funeral ceremonies, the heart would be the only organ not removed because it was revered as being the throne of wisdom, where thoughts and emotions resided.

As for the brain. Well, that was the only organ that would be removed because it was considered to have no real significance.

So, what does this have to do with heart healing and feeling better after experiencing heartache or pain?

When you think about love where do you commonly feel the expansion of energy?

In your heart.

When you split with an ex or pine for an ex-lover, where do you feel the tight and contracted energy?

In your heart.

So much of what is felt emanates from the heart. This is great when you feel good, happy, joyful and all loved up.

I mean think about the meaning that life takes on, all the synchronicity you experience and your ability to bounce back when the heart is expanded.

This is in contrast to the lack of clarity and victim thinking of “Why me?” Which is often followed up with that feeling of being stuck and unlucky in love.

From this simple explanation alone it becomes apparent that the energy emanating from your heart (based on your thoughts and emotions) has an impact on your energy field. Therefore an impact on what you invite into your energy and your life.

By clearing your heart of the energy of fear, lack, pain, anger, scarcity….. you release yourself from the burden of the past. In doing so, healing your heart and increasing the probability of aligning with your true soul-inspired intentions.

It is common that when heart healing is activated the connection between the Divinity and wisdom that lies within is amplified. A concept that has long since been echoed by mystics and spiritual teachers from different world religions. Each one believing that the soul, the Divine or the Buddha-like self resides within the chambers of the heart.

From my own personal practice of self and heart healing, I’ve noticed this to be true. Whilst also finding that my alignment increases when engaging my heart. In fact, on one occasion, I recall overriding the doubt of the mind by engaging from the heart and manifested a miracle healing in less than 24 hours.

A HEART HEALING MEDITATION

Healing the Heart meditation

This meditation has it’s origins in Tantra and is a powerful way to release heavy feelings from your heart.

A simple meditation that engages both the mind and the heart. It has been known to move people to tears (myself included) as the energies leave the body. Whilst you focus on replacing this heavy energy with unconditional love.

ANGELIC REIKI

Angelic Reiki Healing with Chanel Marie

I’ve seen and personally experienced profound shifts from Angelic Reiki sessions. Especially as clients start to release that energy that has left them feeling heavy from within.

My own personal experience evoked memories from the past (and past lives), something that isn’t uncommon. However, rather than getting caught up and lost in the story of that memory, I found it brought understanding that had been missing. Thus, closure on a repetitive relationship and cycle, simply by observing, releasing and replacing with unconditional love.

ROSE QUARTZ

Rose Quartz is famed for being the love crystal. The Crystal that you pop into your bra, adorn yourself with or add to a crystal elixir when you want to attract love into your life. However, it’s way more powerful than that.

Vibrating at the frequency of unconditional love working with Rose Quartz will reveal, one by one, anything within or without which is not in alignment with its vibration. Therefore, making it an excellent crystal to work with when you know within that you are ready to dissolve your barriers to love.

Thankfully, the energy of Rose Quartz is gentle and soothing. So, although what is revealed might be a hard pill to swallow the soothing energy of Rose Quartz can support and guide you to refuel yourself with unconditional love.

The Art of Letting Go: Why I stopped cutting cords + what I do instead

chanelmarie.co.uk

Before discovering Angelic Reiki I had practised cord cutting. Using it to support me in detaching myself energetically from a soulmate relationship and person that simply wasn’t right for me.

I must have completed this practice a dozen times or more. Yet every time I found myself going back to the soulmate or repeating the same patterns with a different person. Each time the experience would be more challenging and painful than the last. Which meant that I was in this cycle of continually cutting the cords. However, when I became an Angelic Reiki practitioner I discovered key elements of the core removal process that changed everything.


WHAT I NOTICED

During Angelic Reiki healing sessions I would often see AA Michael and the Angels removing the cords one by one, rather than cutting them. What I also noticed is that some of these cords were really long and thick, suggesting that the energy within had built up over time. In fact, what I learnt is that some of these cords went back to past lifetime.

Once the cords had been removed the space they had occupied would often be cleansed of any remaining, unwanted energy. The area would be sealed with light and throughout the process, I would often be given some insight into the:

  • Energy
  • Root cause
  • People
  • Feelings

Some of these roots will have gone back to situations or people in the past, including past lives, childhood and teenage years. All of which gave a clear indication of what needed to be released in order to facilitate the healing and letting go process.


WHAT I LEARNED

Removing cords

Removing the cord from the root helps to identify the root cause. That is the place where the thought, behaviour and pattern were first formed. Now, sometimes this is very obvious and is something that you are consciously aware of. However, there are times when the root cause of an issue you are dealing with is not blatantly obvious, eg: soulmate relationships or money issues.

In getting to the heart of the issue you can then take responsibility for your own growth and movement forward. Taking action on changing those behaviours, stories, beliefs that have kept you in a cycle or situation that doesn’t serve you.


Divine light + positivity

In sealing the space with Divine light and love this was a way of cleansing the space, removing any excess unwanted energy. I found this supportive in facilitating the healing process, especially when the cords have been attached for some time.

The additional benefit is that it sets a new foundation that can be built upon. That is built upon using energy: thoughts, desires and behaviours, that are positively aligned with what you want to experience. It’s really like a closing a door to the old and the creation of the new. Yet, this requires you to be conscious and aware to ensure you are not simply filling the space with more of the old.


Awareness, intuition and responsibility

Healing is a practice that requires you to show up and use your own awareness in order to facilitate that healing process. Your awareness is especially important during those times when healing may feel challenging and when you are tempted to just slip back into old ways.  This requires you to use your awareness to notice where energy cords are attached that no longer serve you or are draining you. It also means that noticing when you are slipping into old patterns and cycles. Then use wisdom, tools and the gift of your intuition to guide you towards making healthier, life-affirming choices.


WHAT NEXT?

Now, many people will have their own way of removing cords and, as I always say: If that works for you then keep going with it. However, there will be some people who, like me, find that simply cutting the cord wasn’t helpful. If this is you then if it resonates then try working with AA Michael to remove the cord from the root and make a commitment to really showing up for yourself, as well as your healing.

Keep in touch and let me know how it goes.

With love xo

Soul Note: People are mirroring to you how you feel about yourself.

“People will mirror to you exactly how you feel about yourself.”

That’s a truth bomb right there.

You can try, as you may, to cover it all up with affirmations, crystals, mantras, positive quotes and high-vibe books.

It won’t last long though.

Your internal landscape: How you feel and think about yourself, your life, your skills, business and gift on the inside will be the energy that you manifest and attract from.

Attracting anger on the outside? What are you angry about on the inside?

Attracting jealousy? What part of you is not owning your jealousy and competitiveness?

What’s the answer?

Take ownership + responsibility for what’s going on on the inside: Your thoughts. Your feelings. Start changing your internal landscape: The energy and mindset together.

Don’t do it for one or two days. Be consistent. Use awareness to catch yourself in the moment. Work with someone you trust, eg: A friend, healer, psychic, mentor……who will support you and not just tell you what you want to hear.

Do the work!

When I started taking responsibility for the part I was playing in the dramas that were playing out in my life, things began to shift.

There was one moment when I realised that I was playing a part in why my relationship had come to an end and why we went round in circles.

That moment was crushing.

However, it was also a moment of awakening. One that led to a breakthrough. The tools and people to support me transform from the inside out appeared. It was as if the heavens anticipated that moment and had lined up all I needed to guide me out of the darkness.

In the months that followed, I was confronted with many truths and realisations. Some handled with more ease and grace than others. Yet the more work I did from the inside out the more I felt like me. Although a much better version.

So, rather than just complaining about the shit that’s hitting the fan, the people who are not supporting you and the things that are not going your way, look within. Often what’s happening on the outside is a reflection of what’s going on on the inside.

When the healing isn’t working.

ANGELIC REIKI (1)

When new people reach out to me wanting to know more about Angelic Reiki they usually tell me that they’ve tried some form of energy healing before and it didn’t work for them. Even I have been known to say that EFT and Theta simply do not work for me. The question is: Is that really true?

The reasons for believing this to be true are plentiful:

“They said they cleared my chakras but nothing has changed.”

“I didn’t feel anything.”

“Other people said that X happened but that didn’t happen to me.”

“Since the healing, I am feeling even worse than before I started.”

Now, although it is wholly possible that the healing didn’t work for you for whatever reason. In my own experience, this tends not to be the case and there are a fair few common reasons why it appears that the healing hasn’t or isn’t working.


COMPARISON

A common misconception is that when you work with crystals or have an energy healing session you are meant to feel or see things. It’s that idea that you are meant to have this instant and profound life-changing experience there and then. This misconception is often fuelled by the stories you read and hear about people having these huge epiphanies during or after a treatment. So, when this doesn’t happen for you it’s only natural that you think there is something wrong with you or that the treatment has failed. Yet, this is what I have learned to be true:

The experience of another person is THEIR experience. Not yours!

Each person, based on their own energy, soul lessons, and back-story will have an experience with energy healing that is unique to them. Therefore, what you experience is based on the healing that you are ready to receive at that moment in time. So, comparing your experience to that of another person doesn’t serve you in any way and can actually set you up for disappointment, as well as distracting you from doing your own inner work.


THE MAGIC CURE

Some people can expect energy healing to be this magic cure that takes away all of their problems, pains and issues. Sadly, it doesn’t work that way and what I learned to be true is that:

Spiritual tools and healing practices don’t fix your problems. YOU do!

Instead what I have found is that energy healing practices and tools such as crystals will guide you towards what you need to work on or release. It can bring to the surface the emotions, wounds, root causes or lessons that your soul is ready for you to heal or let go of. In some cases, it may even reveal to you who or what it is that requires your forgiveness. However, you still have free will to choose to keep repeating the same habits and thoughts, as well as hold onto the stories or beliefs that keep you stuck.

There is that element of taking responsibility for your wellbeing and own healing. In doing so, you may find that you need to drop old habits, ways of thinking and being in order to detach from what’s fuelling the pain. Which is where mindset work can also be so complimentary to any inner work and energy healing work that you do for yourself.


IMPATIENCE

Impatience is another common factor for people feeling as if the healing doesn’t work. We live in this society where we want to see and experience rapid results, alongside instant transformation. Whereas this is possible for some, the truth is that sometimes healing takes its sweet time. This is because you receive the healing and insights that you are ready for at any particular stage in your life. Often to receive all of this transformation and insight all at once would be overwhelming. It may also lead you away from using your own wisdom and free will to make choices, learn lessons and naturally up-level. Basically, it will take the “fun” out of simply living and experiencing everything that life has to offer you. Would you really want that?

Also, what I have found is that some wounds run deep. They go back lifetimes and, in some case, can be generational and ancestral. Therefore, it is only natural that it may take some time for you to experience the full impact of the healing. How long it takes can often be down to your own resistance and if you are in impatience mode you can be slowing down the healing process.

I’ve often found that with hindsight I have been able to see that transformation did take place, starting on the inside first and over a period of time. Leading me to see that I have actually come a long way from my humble beginnings. All the healing process to unfold and I am sure that you can have that beautiful hindsight too.


ATTACHMENT

Often people will have an attachment to a specific outcome. So they book in for a session with the specific intention to clear the decks and manifest their dream lover. Then they focus specifically on this intention and becoming increasingly angry, irritated or annoyed that the dream lover isn’t anywhere to be seen. In the process of remaining attached to the outcome they miss the lessons and values they are gaining from all of this inner work and healing. It can also create more stress and resistance. Neither of which are complementary to healing or your general wellbeing.

A simple shift that I find helpful is to move from focusing on a specific outcome is to suspend all expectation and simply be open to receiving the best possible healing at that time. When you do this you will be guided to what you need to work on in order to reach your desired destination, if not somewhere 100 times better. It is this approach that opens you to receive what you need and the infinite possibilities around you, some of which cannot yet be seen by the naked eye.


QUIETLY BEHIND THE SCENES

Energy can be very subtle and that includes healing energy too. Just think about when you are manifesting your desires into reality. On the surface, it can look as if nothing is happening and you may even feel like nothing is happening. Yet behind the scenes, things are shifting and being reorganized. God, Angels and the Universe are working behind the scenes to align you and your desire so that you can receive it in ‘real’ time. It works like this with healing energy too. It can be subtle. Yet it is still working and you don’t have to have this profound, out of this world experience, to know this to be true.


OVER TO YOU…..

I hope that I have given you some light relief or some things to consider, at the very least.

Ultimately, what I want to convey is that you do not need to compare your healing journey to anybody else. Nor do you need to follow another person’s strategy or formula for healing. I’ve found that going where I am guided and holding the intention for the best possible healing to be received pays dividends. Even if those dividends are not seen, felt or experienced straight away.

And if it is no longer working for you that’s ok. Along your path, you’ll try and be guided to new practices, tools and teachers who are best placed to help you awaken to be the best version of you. You’ll be guided.

With much love as always….

Crystals: A natural alternative for headaches

chanelmarie.co.uk

Nothing ruins a picture perfect day more than having a headache.

Anyone who experiences migraines or tension headaches on a regular basis knows just how awful you can feel. Think nauseous, pain around the eyes, constant throbbing in your head and an inability to concentrate or function at full capacity.

During the summer months, these headaches can become a daily fixture in your life. Preventing you from, not only enjoying the weather but also from showing up in life as the best version of you and on your A-game. Thankfully, Mother Earth has gifted us with crystals. Offering us a more natural alternative for pain relief.


CRYSTALS

Crystals have been on the earth for millions of years, with almost every civilisation reaping the benefits of incorporating crystals into their daily lives. They have been used for protection, adornment, beautifying, love talismans, rituals and, of course, healing.

Today, many of the beliefs, rituals and practices of these civilisations have been revived for the ‘Now Age’. So, everyone from the girl next door to your local Modern Mystic and celebs like Victoria Beckham count crystals as essentials for modern living.

When it comes to healing and pain relief crystals are placed on or around the body, focusing on the area where the pain is being experienced. The energy of the crystal works to move energy that has become stagnant or blocked in your body, which is what headaches are: Blocked energy.

Working with crystals when you have a headache will not take away the pain. However, it can be used to alleviate that pain, relax you and facilitate the positive flow of energy around your body.


CRYSTAL SUGGESTIONS

Amethyst

Amethyst crystals are particularly good for tension headaches or those times when a headache is brought upon by a lack of sleep. So, an Amethyst will be great to work with if the hot summer nights have left you feeling fatigued and tired. This purple gemstone promotes energy of calm and relaxation, supporting you in being able to de-stress and feel more relaxed. Placing this crystal on your head or on the pulse point in your wrist can be especially effective in relaxing you.

Selenite

Selenite is a great all-rounder crystal. One of the key properties of this crystal is moving stuck, blocked and stagnant energy. Which is exactly what you want to do when you have a headache: Get that energy moving. The simplest way to work with Selenite when you have a headache is to lie on the floor, couch or your bed, hold the crystal in your hand or place it on your forehead. Then simply allow the crystal to do the work.

Rose Quartz

Everyone knows Rose Quartz as being the stone of love. Yet it is also a healing stone which promotes a soothing and calming vibration. Once again, it is great to work with when you are experiencing a headache due to lack of sleep due to the heat at night. You can use this crystal in the same way that you would use the Amethyst crystal, which is particularly useful if you find the energy of Amethyst too stimulating as some people do. Who knows you may even open the heart to attracting the love of your life too!


chanelmarie.co.ukClear Quartz

Clear Quartz is known amongst crystal healers as the Healer’s Stone. This is because it has an abundance of uses and properties that can support you in healing, as well as manifesting. Yet, as a healing crystal for alleviating pain relief, you will find that Clear Quartz works to direct negative or heavy energy away from the body. Although it can be best to work with a Clear Quartz Crystal Point so that energy is released through the point, it is possible to place a small tumbled stone on your forehead too. When working with a tumbled stone the headache energy will move out of your head and absorbed by the crystal.


It’s worth remembering that each person will have their own unique relationship with different crystals. This is something that can also change over time. For example, you may find that at one stage in your life Amethyst is too stimulating for you, then somewhere down the line, you feel a real connection to it. This is perfectly normal. With this in mind, it’s recommended that you select the crystal that you are most drawn to when a headache kicks and explore what works for you.

If the crystals alone don’t offer enough pain relief, then try massaging Peppermint Oil into temples and directly onto your forehead. Another alternative is to inhale either Peppermint or Olbas oil, whilst relaxing on the sofa with a cooling eye mask over your eyes and listen to some binaural beats.

Note: I must share the standard disclaimer that I am not a doctor and cannot give out medical advice. Healing crystals for headaches should be used as a compliment to other therapies and not as a replacement for regular medical care. Always seek advice from medical and health professionals.

Day 5: The crystal everyone needs to know about

Personally, I feel like I’ve saved the best crystal for last!

Today’s crystal is one that I think that everybody should have in their crystal collection because of its versatility and the amazing impact it can have on your vibration. Let me introduce you to Selenite.


WHY YOU NEED SELENITE IN YOUR LIFE

OMG! There are so many reasons why you need this crystal in your life and this is everything to do with its amazing healing benefits.

You can use it to cleanse your energy field of any dense and heavy energy that you’re carrying within. Whipping your chakra system back into shape by clearing and balancing each chakra. This also brings you back into alignment: Feeling positive, good about life and even better about yourself. Who doesn’t wanna experience that?

It amplifies the energy of crystals, objects and intentions because it is such a high vibrational stone. Therefore it’s a good idea to use this Selenite alongside other crystals to amplify the energy of your intention.

Selenite doesn’t need to be recharged and can actually be used to charge and cleanse other crystals. That being said I will, when guided to, cleanse mine with Sage or Angelic Reiki. It’s also commonplace for me to use one of my big chunks of Selenite as a cleansing and charging bed. This means I lay my crystal bracelets and watch on top of the Selenite so that it can be cleared of unwanted energy. Then it’s recharged and ready to be used the next day. Magic.

Liquid Light, another name for Selenite, attracts the energy of light. Which is why it’s so good for cleansing, purifying, protecting and raising your vibration.


HOW TO USE SELENITE

There are so many different ways to use and reap the energetic benefits of this beautiful crystal. Here is my absolute fave:

Aura Cleansing. Move your Selenite wand slowly and intentionally down your body. I like to start at my crown chakra (top of my head), down the front of the body and all the way down to and under my feet. You also want to make sure that you run the wand over your arms, as well as down the back of your body too. Saying a prayer of intention or visualising the dense energy being absorbed by the Selenite where it’s transmuted into light. I like to pay attention to areas where I’m experiencing pain, as this tends to be where there is a block in the energy.

Failing that you can also sleep with it under your pillow at night to promote relaxation and a night of good sleep. You can also place it on your body during meditation, including laying it on a pain point or chakra point to promote healing and balance.

Day 1: Rose Quartz

Loving yourself and feeling confident in your own skin are key aspects of sacred beauty. It promotes healthy self-esteem and a sense of self-worth that comes from within. Meaning that you don’t feel the need to look for validation from others or feel the need to change in order to fit in, be accepted or feel loved.

Yet, in today’s modern world this isn’t always easy. Pressure from social media, magazines and celeb culture can often leave women feeling like they have to conform to be beautiful. And let’s not forget the pain and anguish that comes from heartbreak, bullying and other soul-destroying situations, which can leave you feeling un-pretty, unworthy and less than in so many ways.

Whilst there are many methods that can be used to heal and move beyond these feelings there are little gems from the Earth which, if used alongside these methods, can give your healing a little energetic boost.

These gems are crystals, with Rose Quartz being the perfect crystal for all things sacred beauty and love related.


LOVE + ROSE QUARTZ:

A LITTLE BACKGROUND

Don’t forget to fall in love with yourself first.” – Carrie Bradshaw

Rose Quartz is one of those crystals which can be hugely underestimated. It’s often thought of that crystal that helps us to attract the lover of our dreams. Yet it is so much more than this. In fact, before it even draws the love another close it will show you all the ways that you need to love yourself first!

This candy pink gemstone is a nurturing stone. A stone of compassion and unconditional love. Making it a beautiful companion during times of heartache or pain, including period pain. As it’s soothing, healing and energy of unconditional love it works to dissolve those barriers of pain, sadness and fear.


HOW TO MAKE ROSE QUARTZ PART OF YOUR DAILY LIFE

There are many different ways to make this crystal part of your everyday life. For example, it’s believed that the Goddess Aphrodite used to place Rose Quartz in her bath so that the loving energy of the crystal could be absorbed into her body and energy field. This way of working with crystals has been adopted by many modern sacred beauties, like you and I. It’s certainly a beautiful way to relax at the end of a stressful day. I can vouch for that.

One way that I make Rose Quartz part of my day is by keeping a small selection of tumbled stones in a glass bowl on my dressing table. This helps to hold the vibration of unconditional love, self-love and beauty as I apply my makeup. It’s also a personal reminder for me too.

As Rose Quartz resonates with the heart chakra it makes sense to place it over your heart chakra during meditation. This can have the effect of opening the heart of receive love whilst also promoting relaxation. You might like to try this heart-centred meditation.

Alternatively, you may simply wish to wear your Rose Quartz in your bra, so it’s close to your heart space or adorns your wrist with a beautiful Rose Quartz bracelet. How you choose to connect with and work with your crystal is entirely up to you.


ARE YOU READY TO MAKE ROSE QUARTZ PART OF YOUR LIFE?

Loving yourself, recognising your own beauty and being confident in your own skin are essential ingredients for Sacred Beauty. So, if you could with a little support in this area Rose Quartz can be a great tool to work with. Using it alongside affirmations, meditation, Angelic Reiki or other forms of self-development as it helps to amplify the energy of your intention.
