“We accept the love we think we deserve.”
~ Stephen Chbosky
So it seems that many of you like crystals, and the idea of working with crystals. And many of you have been asking me lately about love – how to love yourselves more, how to love others more, and how to attract love into your lives.
Crystals and love? Seems like a perfect match to me!
In today’s post I’ll look at how to use crystals to increase self-love. Self love is the foundation for any good relationship, and without it our relationship choices will not serve us well.
Tomorrow I’ll look at how to use crystals to help open you to better love relationships.
Good Crystals for Promoting Self Love
All you really need to do is choose a stone, and then wear or hold it, or keep it close by. An overview of that process can be found in the links below:
Here are some of my favourite crystals for self love.
Rose Quartz – An all rounder. Great for self love, compassion, nurturing and gentle kindness. Restores those depleted from over-giving. A very nourishing stone, strongly connected to the Angelic Realms.
Danburite – Heals the Inner Child within, promotes self esteem, and positive self talk. Helps you to value yourself.
Mangano Calcite – A stone with strong mothering energy, helps us to feel safe, loved and protected. Useful in times of stress or trauma. Heals broken hearts and helps us feel worthy of love.
Watermelon Tourmaline – A delicious stone for getting you out of your head and back into your heart. Promotes joyful self-acceptance, and a sense of playfulness. Removes guilt and inner conflict caused by critical self-thinking.
Citrine – A powerful stone for reclaiming your sense of self. Helps you to value your own opinions and ideas, strengthens self esteem and identity. Attracts abundance and abundant thinking. Unblocks creativity. Promotes flow on all levels.
Green Aventurine – Such a terrific stone for joyful self-acceptance, inner strength, finding and investing in your own positive qualities, self-belief and self-esteem. Dissolves deep pain; especially emotional pain, self doubt or self-hatred.
Once you have chosen your stone, and cleansed and connected with it, you may also want to imbue it with a small program. A program is just a simple thought or idea that you place into the crystal with your intent. Crystals are a little like radio towers, transmitting their own special energetic qualities, as well as any other encoded energetic intentions.
If you’d like to program your crystal, have it with you, and then follow the instructions in my simple 5-minute guided meditation:
May you know love in your heart today. Bless ♥ xx
