Rose Quartz is a stone that can help us through all our lives, and makes a great choice in several different stages we go through. It all starts before we're even conceived: Rose Quartz is a libido enhancer and fertility crystal, and although there is no hard scientific evidence, it has been employed to help women get pregnant and nurture their unborn baby inside the womb.

Pregnant women also find Rose Quartz to help them calm down and have serenity during pregnancy. After the baby is born, place a raw Rose Quartz stone under the crib to soothe and calm the baby. The Rose Quartz energy resembles the mother's love and can help in those long sleepless nights.
When the baby grows up to be a beautiful grown human being, they'll benefit from Rose Quartz by applying it to nurture and heal their relationships with their friends and family, as well as with their special someone.

Rose Quartz Meditation
To charge your Rose Quartz item, we suggest meditation as we do with all other stones.
Rose Quartz will absorb negative energy, and needs to be cleansed prior to any programming or charging.
To cleanse Rose Quartz crystals you can choose the method you like, we have a bias towards smudging with white sage for being as effective as any other method while being the quickest with an added bonus of your meditation space smelling awesome after it.
After you have cleansed your Rose Quartz crystal, get in a comfortable position (sitting is preferred to laying down - it's harder to fall asleep) and hold your Rose Quartz in your hands or place it in your Heart Chakra.
Focus on your breathing and just concentrate in deep, slow breaths for a moment. Be present, be in the moment. With your eyes closed acknowledge that you exist, acknowledge where you are, and acknowledge the feelings and emotions you're experiencing right now. Be mindful and be present. Feel the crystal, feel it's cold touch, feel it's energy and allow your aura and Chakras to resonate and synchronize with that energy. Take some time to allow your mind and soul to register that.
Then you will think of what you want to achieve with this crystal: Maybe you want to heal a loving relationship, maybe you want to attract love, or maybe you want to heal the pain from losing a loved one. Maintain your calm and deep breaths and think of what are the healthy emotional state you want to be. Rose Quartz energy is about unconditional love and kindness and empathy and compassion. Feel that energy, draw it from the crystal, draw it from the Universe and let it fill your whole being. Keep thinking of what love means to you, of what the other person represents to you, and let forgiveness set in. You will emulate the feelings and emotions you wish to feel, and project that back into the rose quartz stone you're holding. Do that for any amount of time you desire, we recommend a minimum of 20 minutes once a day.
Using Rose Quartz
After you meditated with your Rose Quartz, it will be charged with all those feelings and thoughts you had while programming it. It's a powerful talisman that you can resort to and tap into it's power at any time.
The way it works is that your subconscious mind have associated that amulet with the feelings and emotions you binded to it, and every time you remember it by seeing or touching it (or even thinking of it) all those thoughts and feelings will surface and be available to you.
Let's say you find yourself hot headed in the middle of an argument with a colleague or your partner, take a step back and touch your rose quartz jewelry or reach in your pocket for your amulet or hold the rose quartz ball that sits in your desk and allow it's loving energy to take over your current feelings of anger and resentment. Your subconscious will re-create the intent you set into the talisman while meditating with it and you can tap into that positive energy and turn the discussion around and replacing the momentary bad emotions with good and positive feelings that you want to manifest.
An extremely important point that often gets overlooked: You MUST repeat the process of cleansing, meditating with your crystal and charging it often. It works like taking a shower: You're clean and smell great right after it, but if you don't do it every day you'll eventually not be clean anymore and will stink badly. You have to do it over and over if you want to benefit from it. Do it once, you get the benefit once. Do it always, you'll always benefit from it.
