All spiritual journeys need to start with self-love and rose quartz is an excellent stone to help with that. Self-love is not as many think, it's not about being selfish or self-absorbed.

Rose Quartz is most commonly used with the heart chakra, showing the true essence of love, and opening the heart on all levels. The heart chakra regulates our interaction with the world controlling what we embrace and resist. It gives us the ability to be ourselves, and aids in understanding our own needs and emotions. What many do not know is that it is also associated with the base chakra. It can gently stimulate it helping rejuvenate the physical body while balancing yin-yang energy. The base chakra is the foundation of the body’s physical and spiritual energy. When it is in balance, we feel strong, secure and have a sense of our own power.

Rose quartz is associated with the earth element and the astrological sign, Taurus.

For the longest time, I was turned off by rose quartz, I didn't really want to work with it and was never drawn to it. Now that I have worked with my heart chakra over the past 3 months, I am able to hold it, feel it's vibration and carry it with me. I use it a lot during Reiki sessions as it helps many to love themselves.
