Love isn’t just in the air on Valentine’s Day or anniversaries. People all over the world are looking for someone to be with, and they’ll sometimes use some drastic measures to do so. While crystal meditation isn’t exactly an uncouth or dangerous method, many don’t actually consider the possibility that crystals can help enhance your charm and strengthen your compassion, as well as bring men and women to you in droves. The possibility of finding love because of crystal meditation is extremely real, as long as you also put in equal effort to search. Just because you’re using crystals doesn’t mean the man or woman of your dreams is going to fall into your lap! Use these three crystals to find your Romeo or Juliet.
A crystal as pink as a candied Valentine’s heart, Rhodochrosite is infused with hot fuchsias and soft whites, creating a stone that looks every bit like the purpose it holds. Instead of being a crystal that focuses on getting you more dates or getting you under someone’s sheets, this pink stone allows for mind clarity and unity. In order to truly love others, it’s said that you will have to love and cherish yourself first. In order to truly appreciate yourself, you need to be one with both your body and spirit. Being in love with yourself, in a way that is more self-esteem based instead of being based in narcissism, means that you respect yourself and will only do what is best for you. This is essential in starting off on the right foot in relationships.
Obsidian / Apache Tear
The dark crystal obsidian isn’t what most think of first when it comes to crystals of romance, but this specific type of obsidian is known for its properties related to love. This stone (specifically Apache Tear) gets its name from a myth that states the Apache women and children watched their male relatives die during battle, thus causing them to cry a river of tears that hardened into these blackish stones. Depressing as that may seem, the idea behind their meaning is that these stones are the embodiment of grief, allowing your heart to be free of sadness when you’re holding the stone. When your heart is free, it is capable of focusing on being happy and finding love quickly.
More along the lines of loving others, rose quartz is another pink crystal that allows your heart to open as wide as possible. The silky color imbedded in this gem is indicative of how the stone works in reality: by being more gently and serene in your love energy, you allow others to find you and get to know you more easily. The jagged and sharp surfaces of mined rose quartz are unlike the soft nature of its powers. This crystal is best utilized in jewelry or kept in a pocket at all times. The natural energy that it gives off almost acts like a crystal magnet that is out only to attract the hearts of others you may find to be your soulmate.
