Rainee's Crystal Blog: Rose Quartz - November 2017

by Rainee Osborn

     Rose quartz comes in different shades of pink, mostly opaque with a bit of translucence. Rose quartz emanates a powerful, yet gentle, loving energy: the healing energy of unconditional love. It’s high vibration of harmony, love, happiness, warmth and tenderness can enhance any relationship, but the journey of healing starts with learning to accept unconditional love for yourself and enhancing our efforts to learn to love others unconditionally. The results of this shift include: greater clarity and discernment, emboldened self-esteem and self-worth, improved emotional health, and restored inner peace, as we strive for enlightenment.     

     Rose quartz connects with and gently opens the heart chakra. Its flow of unconditional love assists us in forgiving ourselves and others for past mistakes. Freeing us up, to let go, of all that fear, pain and regret that doesn’t serve us. This allows us to heal completely from loss, past traumas or a “broken heart”, transforming us to be more open, loving and present in current relationships. Rose quartz can help us find our true love by healing hurts and raising our vibration, clearing the way for our soulmate to be drawn to us. 

     Through its calming and soothing effects, rose quartz can reduce stress, anxiety and depression.  It can release unexpressed anger, jealousy, guilt, resentment and grief.  Strengthening us, to deal with challenging people, with compassion and to overcome difficult situations.

     Rose quartz can ignite our passion within, stimulating our imaginations, opening us to higher thoughts that create new ideas and new ways to solve old problems. This gentle stone leads us to step into new ways of being and allows us to find greater levels of success, as we move beyond our blocks and become more receptive to success and prosperity.

     A great way to keep rose quartz energy with you, wear rose quartz jewelry. A pendant that lies close to the heart can be particularly effective. A small stone can be slipped into a pocket, your bra or under your pillow. You can place a collection of stones in a bowl or use crystal points in your environment, to both attract and dispense loving energy in you space. A rose quartz candle holder or lamp can be nourishing to the environment. Choose the method that speaks to you, always trusting your intuition!

     Rose quartz needs to be cleansed when you purchase it and periodically as it is used. Cleaning it more often, when it’s used for emotional healing. Rose quartz can be cleansed under running water, with sage or sage sprays, in a bowl of salt crystals or using cleansing stones such as selenite, citrine, or kyanite.

     To re-energize rose quartz, leave it in the moonlight overnight, as sunlight can cause the stone to fade. I learned this the hard way, experience.

     Rose quartz vibrates with the most powerful force on earth...LOVE. It is a love that is capable of bringing greater happiness, restoring relationships and of healing all that it touches.  Who couldn’t use a little more of that in their life?

Come Back to the Breath
Come Back to the Breath

August 20, 2018

Greetings Yogis, it is the month of  August  in the year 2018, and while it may have been minutes, or days or even years since you last took a deep, slow, fully conscious breath, fear not! However long it has been, the great teachings of the ages assure us, that what is important is not how long we have strayed away breath but that we come back it here and now. As you read on, you can begin to tune into the rhythm of your own breath, noticing where it is moving in the body. Maybe just by bringing your attention to it, the breath deepens automatically. Try not to force anything- as the great teacher and founder of Ananda Yoga (the lineage of Yoga practiced at East West Bookshop) Swami Kriyananda taught, “All progress in Yoga is made through greater and greater relaxation.”

Doing Yoga With Children
Doing Yoga With Children

August 20, 2018

I have been practicing yoga for nearly 30 years and currently teach adults. Most recently however, I participated in a kid’s yoga camp as a teacher for ages 6-8. What the heck, I thought. Yoga has proven useful in many aspects of my life, a valuable tool, let’s see what it does for children. First of all, it was a joyful, playful experience, creatively energizing and exhausting as well.  Children tend to move quicker than adults; most children will move into a yoga posture faster than you can say the name, especially if they have practiced yoga before.
