Rose Quartz – A Natural ‘Love Stone'

Finding and keeping a healthy relationship isn't easy so get a little help from the center of the earth. Everyone knows diamonds are a girl's best friend, but have you thought about using other natural crystals and gemstones when it comes to loving yourself and others?

Rose quartz is a natural choice for finding love and is often called the ‘Love Stone'. Rose quartz is one of the most happy and soothing of all the earth's crystals.
Quartz crystals hold distinct vibrations that help us return to our inner source. Rose quartz in particular affects the heart chakra where negative patterns from past relationships are held. These patterns must be released before true love can happen. This is easier said than done, because many of us have a lot of work in loving ourselves. You would not tear down a house if a window were broken, so be patient when it comes to accepting yourself unconditionally.

The natural place to use a rose quartz crystal is on the heart, so a necklace ideal. Surround the quartz with rhodonite for added patience as you go through the growing process. If you want to work with a larger piece of rose quartz, gently hold it in your hand and repeat a positive affirmation of love and self-acceptance. Try placing the quartz under your pillow and allow the dreams to help you release the past. Sit with the quartz in your hand during meditation or place it in the partnership area (far right corner) of your desk. Have it hold the intention of finding or improving a relationship. When it comes to relationships, let the earth help you with the journey from the past into the present -experiment with different pieces of rose quartz.


The Language of Flowers Speaks Volumes

Romantic traditions from the past can teach us a lot about romance in the present. According to the The Literary Times, the language of flowers is called floriography and was practiced from the time of the Romans. During the time of the Victorians, lovers would tell each other how they felt by exchanging certain flowers or floral arrangements. This was quite a booming business for the florists, silversmiths and glassmakers of the day.

Make the gift of flowers even more romantic and fun by using the traditional floral language but better yet, make up your own language. Giving a dozen roses is lovely, but why not choose 12 individual flowers and write a description or meaning for each. Include a card that spells out the message you want to convey.

Here are a few ideas to get you started: Your eyes are the color of this blue hydrangea. The white rose is my commitment and a sign of things to come. The gardenia reminds me of your perfume. The sunflower reminds me of the summer day we met. Your own floral language can be fun and creative. This shows the recipient that a great deal of thought went into the gift. Any type of personalization goes a long way in the area of romance.

Ladies, don't let the guys have all the fun, men love receiving flowers too. Choose just one flower and have it delivered to him personally with your private message. Romance doesn't have to be boring.


Symbols For a Healthy Relationship

The Chinese have many symbols and charms when it comes to prosperity, abundance or healthy relationships. In Feng Shui, the Chinese art of placement, having a successful and healthy relationship includes many happy children. Symbols are said to bring luck and good fortune, but they can activate love as well.

Some of the best Feng Shui principles and symbols for obtaining a good relationship include:
1. Determine the partnership area of the home (far right corner) and place a rose quartz crystal in the room. Clear or pink round crystal balls are also nice in the bedroom.
2. Mandarin ducks are famous symbols of lovers and fidelity. Place a pair in any space to create positive atmosphere for love to grow.
3. Place a pair of geese in a home to encourage a happy marriage.
4. The peony signifies love and romance and is highly valued in China. Peonies in a living room draw suitors to a young woman. Even a picture of a peony is a good idea in the living room.
5. A butterfly is a symbol of young love so it is not as appropriate for a woman. Place a lovely butterfly in any room to encourage an active social life(social butterfly).
6. Two red paper lanterns lit on the side of the bed at the same time and extinguished at the same time signify a long happy marriage.

Try any of these symbols in your home and see what happens. I painted my bedroom pink with the intention of finding a husband and two weeks later, we met.

Iwas told that different roses mean different things, is this true?

Essential Oils for a Personal Love Potion

Love potions, charms or spells date back to ancient civilization. Fragrance and incense have been used in all cultures to conjure up love, romance and ignite passions of the heart. Certain essential oils are thought to be aphrodisiacs and many swear by the effect they have on the libido. Others are skeptical and think aphrodisiacs are a bunch of hooey. Make your own aphrodisiac with a few simple ingredients. Once you try it, decide for yourself.

For love and romance, I would suggest blending a massage oil using rose, ylang ylang and sandalwood essential oils with a carrier oil such as sweet almond. Drop 5 to 7 drops of each essential oil in a clean two oz. container and add the carrier oil to the top. Shake and use the massage oil when the mood strikes you. Other aromatherapy oils to consider are neroli, patchouli, clary sage, jasmine and black pepper. You be the judge and pick the oils that are perfect for you. If you set the mood, put yourself in the right frame of mind and add a little aromatic scent, who knows what will happen? You could create magic.
