Rose Quartz is a very popular quartz crystal vibrating with love and compassion. However, because quartz crystal picks up energies very easily, it is important to cleanse it of any energies it might have picked up. You can cleanse it by smudging with white sage or placing it near singing bowls (even a recording of a singing bowl). If none of this is available, you can also simply look at your crystal and set the intention that you are clearing it. Do not wash your crystal with water and salt.
Once cleansed, it is time to program your crystal. Think about what you would like to charge your crystal with and write down the affirmation. Suggested affirmations may be . . .
- I feel peaceful and grounded.
- I feel in harmony with myself.
- I fill my mind with beautiful thoughts that make me feel happy.
- My relationships with others are peaceful and productive.
Once you have decided on your affirmation, hold your crystal in your left hand or in both hands. If your crystal has a point or termination, hold it facing in towards your arm with the intention of allowing the energy to run through your entire system. Take a few deep cleansing breaths to relax and then imagine that you are stepping inside the crystal and immerse yourself in its energy. As you do this, share with the crystal your affirmation. Your crystal will be charged with your good thoughts.
You can carry your crystal in a pouch with you as you move through your daily life and experience the energy and reminder of your affirmation. Be sure to cleanse it on a regular basis.
