Rose Quartz in the Morning Light

Good morning everyone and welcome back to Crystal Thursday. We are talking about a member of the Quartz family today, Rose Quartz. It surprises me that I haven’t discussed any of the Quartz family crystals yet, it’s a very large family!

Rose Quartz has quite a long history. Beads have been found in Iraq dating back 7000 years. The Assyrians are thought to be the first to find and use it. The Greeks and Romans also appreciated its lovely color. The Romans used it to make seals showing personal ownership of items, or people perhaps. The ancient Egyptians believed it prevented aging. The might have been on to something. Those face rollers are supposed to help reduce puffiness and wrinkles!

Here is the United States it was discovered in Custer South Dakota in the 1880’s and then in Maine in the early 1900’s. Since they both take credit as the first discovery, I thought I’d mention both finds. Aside from the US Rose Quartz is mined in several countries around the world such as Brazil, India, Madagascar, Germany, Namibia, and Canada.

Its name tells us what color this crystal is and that is shades of opaque to translucent pink. It resonates beautifully with the Heart Chakra and comes in at a strong 7 on the Mohs scale of hardness.

When people start collecting crystals and minerals Rose Quartz is one of the first chosen for purchase. Its energy is gentle, nurturing and very much about love. Not just romantic love, but love of all kinds. As a tool for personal growth it encourages self love and compassion.

Now let’s get to the fun stuff and discuss the metaphysical qualities of this beauty:

  • Wearing or carrying a piece with you encourages love to come into your life.
  • It’s said to help conception.
  • It opens people to love
  • It eases the nerves and emotions.
  • Removes negativity and anger.
  • Helps restore trust.
  • Placing pieces around your home encourages a peaceful, loving home life.
  • Placed by your bed encourages romance.
  • Placed under your pillow helps you have a peaceful nights rest.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this brief look at Rose Quartz. If the qualities of this stone resonate with you I encourage you to purchase a piece and work with it. Keep in mind I am not a doctor and sharing the healing qualities of this stone is in no way giving medical advice. Working with it can help but if you are ill see your medical practitioner of choice.

Until Next Time…
Blessed Be ❤ Sharon

The Weekly Tarot Story

Good morning everyone. Here we are April 7, 2021 already. At this point the affirmations for our Weekly Tarot Story are switching from how we think and feel about our goals, dreams and potential achievements to how we think and feel about ourselves. They aren’t two separate stories being told in the same week. Not at all, how we view ourselves has a direct affect on how we see our lives and our ability to succeed in them.

Today’s affirmation is I Am Beautiful. If you were to ask most people, especially women, if they thought they were beautiful, the answer would probably be no. The reason for this connects back to Sunday’s affirmation. We all are very open about seeing the beauty or peopential in others but when it comes to ourselves all we can do is judge and find fault. Many can give a list as to why they feel less than beautiful. I am too tall, too short, too thin, too heavy, I don’t like my hair, my eyes are too close together, my nose if crooked, my ears are big, my teeth are bad. The list can be endless…

The thing is, this planet is packed with variety. An Oak tree doesn’t look at a Maple and think any less of itself. It stands just as tall and mighty as the Maple. Each has its own beauty to offer. A Crow will never wish it were like a Robin. They have their own beautiful songs to sing. The same holds true for us. Each of us has something special and beautiful to offer the world. It’s ok to be different from everyone else. None of us is perfect, as a matter of fact we’re all perfectly imperfect and that is a beautiful thing. Write I Am Beautiful on a piece of paper and tape it where you’ll see it every day.

I Am Beautiful tells us to love ourselves, flaws and all because there is nobody else just like you or me on this planet, and we’re beautiful!

Have a magnificent day! Blessed Be ❤ Sharon

1735 Days

 While talking with Prince earlier today I told him it’s been 1735 days since he was taken from this planet. I told him how sad that makes me. I am not the only person on this planet who believes he was taken too soon. Karma will take care of it!

Anyway; during our conversation I asked Prince if he had a message for those of us waiting for the truth to come out. Here is what he told me…

“Tell everyone I Love them. Tell them I believe in them
and tell them to Love each other.”

We talked for a little while longer after he gave me this message and I told him I look forward to the truth coming out whenever that time may be. One of the last things he told me was that,

The truth is near the surface!

I didn’t ask when; I just know and believe it will happen. I generally don’t press the issue with him when we talk. I never ask super personal questions either. I know Prince no longer lives here so his ego doesn’t get activated and he isn’t as emotionally attached to his life like when he lived here. Still his personal life is just that, personal. If a topic comes up naturally then I don’t feel like I’m prying.

Have a great day everyone. Blessed Be ❤ Sharon

Checking In

I read a post by Spiritual Journey 17 a bit ago called How are You Holding Up? If you’ve never read her before I invite you to follow the link and check her blog out. I enjoy her posts and believe you will as well.

Honestly, for me personally, I work from home so my life hasn’t seen much change to my routine since this all began. I do recognize the tremendous gift behind this global situation. And it is a gift! To be given the opportunity to slow down and check our priorities, to remember the dreams we set aside because life got in the way; to have the time to consider making changes and plan for the time when things go back to whatever the new normal is going to be, is a fantastic opportunity for us all that we simply can’t allow to slip away.

Realistically, the world is changing, life is never going to be what it used to be. It can’t be, this planet is depending on us all to make the changes necessary to grow our vibration and become better versions of ourselves.

I know there are people struggling with confinement, please know that you are not alone. Help is literally a video chat away. Granted that is not the same as a hug from someone you love, but for now it has to do. This isn’t going to last and it is a wonderful time to go within and ask why. Why is this confinement bothering me? What am I afraid of? What part of me needs to heal? What needs to be released? Don’t be afraid of doing the work. It may not be easy but it will be worth it.

There are a lot of questions wrapped up in this global event. Much of what is going on just doesn’t make sense. With very little real, believable information available there is a lot of fear, panic and frustration everywhere. But if we, as a human family can come together to create planet wide love and cooperation, we can defeat the fear to come out of this a better, wiser, more loving species that we were going in. And that is something we can achieve!

Blessed Be ❤ Sharon
