Think of Rose quartz as your crystalline wingman. This powerful healing tool boosts feelings of passion, love and open heartedness – both for yourself and for others. Leave it on a shelf and it’s nothing more than a shiny rock, but put it to use, as with this vanilla and quartz bath, and feel the crystal do its thing! Pro-crystal healer Heather Askinosie of Energy Muse is walking us through these three rituals for a summer full of feel-good vibes…
Heat up your love life this summer with a little help from your crystal ally, rose quartz! Rose quartz is your go-to stone for all matters of the heart – everything from self-love to romantic love to healing from a breakup to forgiveness. Ancient lore touts it as the stone of love and beauty. Legend has it that Cupid, the Roman God of desires and affection, and Eros, the Greek god of love, gifted rose quartz to the earth to bestow love, passion and happiness.
The message of rose quartz is to love yourself and love others unconditionally. It asks you to go within your heart, to the space that knows love is the answer to all the hard questions in life. The power of love is limitless and everlasting. When you shift your mindset and see your problems from a place of love, it softens your heart and then your mind can fall into that same heart space of love.
Summer is filled with beautiful sunsets, lazy sunny days and fun times with friends and loved ones. Take extra time this summer to focus on the energy of love, the most powerful healing vibration on Earth. Summer and love are one in the same:
She was like the summer. Barely anyone appreciates her when she’s here. But when she’s gone, all they do is miss her.
This summer, give these simple rose quartz rituals a try! They will help you tap into your heart and remind you that love is the foundation of everything in life.

A Meditation Ritual for Opening Your Heart
8 pieces rose quartz
Sit in a cross-legged position on the floor. Place six pieces of rose quartz in a circle around you and hold a piece of rose quartz in each hand. Visualize a wheel of pink and green light swirling in a clockwise direction over your heart in the center of your chest. In the middle of the swirling green and pink light, visualize a light switch. Turn that switch on! With the light in your heart turned on, ask yourself the following questions:
Who do I need to forgive in my life so that I can move forward? Listen to what your heart tells you.
How can I forgive myself so that I can move forward? Listen to what your heart tells you.
Which three people in my life need to know that I love them with all my heart? Listen to what your heart says.
Take action once you hear the names and tell those people that you love them.
