The journey to healing is one unique to each of us. The way in which we arrive will differ. Those around us, as we undertake those journeys will also evolve. It will be a process of constant transformation and restoration. Colored with fears, laughs, cries, smiles, bitterness, sometimes regret, and, God’s plan: love.
It will be the journey: the Odyssey. And worth every opened wound, mended crack, broken piece, and repaired part.
It is no longer news that the first step to healing begins within YOU. You must heal from the inside and radiate out. As I love to quote and re-quote the great Lauryn Hill’s rap lines, “How you gon’ win if you ain’t right within?” You’ve got to heal you before you can even reach a point where you can not only give love but receive that same full and rich love you are able to give.
One way to reach that point in your healing journey is through the realignment, reawakening, and nourishment of your chakras. Achieved in various ways through stones, herbs, teas, oils… you name it, any form chosen is simply only an aid to attainment. Full attainment is reached once you’ve truly come to the peace you’ve cultivated in however manner you’ve defined it for yourself.
It’s on that note, in which I introduced the Rose Quartz. A crystal, with a soft and soothing pink essence, it is a stone of the heart. A Crystal of Unconditional Love, as it is sometimes referred. The Rose Quartz yields a gentle energy of compassion and peace. This crystal also aides in the cultivation of the nourishment and comfort of the heart and soul. It is a healing stone that thrives in the gentle tenderness it emits. It will also assist you in recognizing your own need for compassion, and love for your own self. It provides you the wisdom to see and know that you deserve forgiveness and understanding from yourself.
The Rose Quartz speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, coloring our lives with compassion and beauty while dissolving emotional wounds, fears, and resentments. The Rose Quartz circulates a Divine healing, yet loving energy throughout the entire aura that will imbue you with a deeper understanding of yourself as well as those around you. This crystal seeks to help reawaken the heart to its own innate love through providing a deep sense of personal fulfillment and contentment. Associated with the element of water, the Rose Quartz healing properties are fluid in nature – washing out toxic energies and emotions that entrap and bind you from true spiritual healing.
The Rose Quartz presides as a tool to open the FULL heart, allowing one the capacity to truly give and receive love from others. Teaching us that through acceptance, captivating and beautiful landscapes await us.
All we have to do, again, is seize it.
Now, as Yrsa Daley-Ward penned, “Today is the first day of the rest of it.” Make it worth the while it deserves to be. Make it one that marks the day you choose to begin to heal your heart. The world is hurting all around us, but that doesn’t mean you have to hurt too.
Heal you. Love you. And watch how the stars shine for you. That love you give for your own self will radiate out and fill the hearts of others.
You will be beautiful.
