Rose Quartz Meditation

Before you begin the meditation, cleanse your crystal. Find a place to sit
quietly with your legs uncrossed and hold your Rose Quartz Crystal. If you
are lying down, you can place your Rose Quartz over your heart chakra.

Gently close your eyes.

Take a deep breath in through your nose and exhale through your mouth.
Again inhale, exhale through your mouth.

One more time, take a deep breath in through your nose and exhale
through your mouth.

Allow your breath to adjust to your natural rhythm.

With each breath, release the thoughts of the day, the week, the month, the
past year, the lifetime.

Release blockages and attachments that no longer serve us. Let go of all
the discomfort, stories in your mind, let them fade away. Put them in a box
and lock it with a key.

Visualize being in an endless field of tall green grass and scattered pink
flowers as the sun sets.

As you walk through the green lush landscape under the warm rays of the
sun, feel your heart space open.

An expansive bright light radiates from your heart, up through your
shoulders, flowing down your arms and extending out your palms.

Its loving energy extends throughout your entire body.

Your heart is thankful for all the wonderful things you do for others.

Your heart is thankful for being present in this moment for yourself.

Rose Quartz magnifies the gifts of universal love to you and strengthens
the centre and essence of your being, your heart.

You continue walking through the tall grass with your hands brushing over
the tips of its leaves instilling a deep sense of relaxation.

You find an open space in the field where you can lie down peacefully on
the grass.

As you lay in the grass brushing against your skin bringing awareness to
your beautiful body connecting to the vibrational pull of Mother Earth’s
warm embrace, love grows within.

The seeds of love are planted to manifest love and compassion for
yourself and others.

Eternal love flows outwards and comes back to you.

Take as long as you need.

When you are ready, slowly bring yourself back to the present. Gently
open your eyes. Lay down your Rose Quartz. Wiggle your arms and toes.
Start a daily practice with an affirmation of self-love with your Rose Quartz
Crystal over your heart space. You have the capacity to ignite love in all its
forms and your sense of self will blossom into its fullest expression.
