Crystal Bible - Rhodochrosite
RHODOCHROSITE MEANING & HEALING
This subtle beauty is more than a love potion. It also connects the upper and lower energy fields of the body, clearing away psychic debris that has accumulated over the years. When facing painful matters of the heart, this crystal gives us the courage to trust another soul with our vulnerable hearts. It gives us the inner strength to take another chance at love because even if you fall, the Rhodochrosite crystal will always catch you.
On a cellular level, the Rhodochrosite calms and rebalances the nervous system, which promotes feelings of deep relaxation, a welcome prescription for managing stress and intense emotions. If you're caught in a negative thought pattern, combine the cleansing effects of water by taking a bath with the Rhodochrosite stone. While your body soaks in its healing vibrations, meditate on releasing toxic emotions and get ready to experience a subtle yet powerful transformation that sets the stage for creative expression and self-confidence.
Love is the medicine to heal the world, which is what makes this stone a powerful addition to a healing grid. Pair Rhodochrosite with Smoky Quartz for a crystal cocktail that rocks at teaching us to love as we've never been hurt. It's a fine line between holding grudges and self-preservation, but this crystal powerhouse gives us the wisdom to keep a healthy balance, protecting our spirit from bad vibes and giving us the courage to cut ties from old patterns (or people) no longer serving us.
Sweet and gentle, Rhodochrosite crystal stone properties serve as the spiritual cream to your coffee. The stone of unconditional love, it reminds us of what's important -- the size of your heart, how gently you live, and the grace that comes from letting go of things not meant for you.
Rhodochrosite reminds us to love ourselves just as we value our relationship with friends and family. Stop evaluating yourself like a used car, taking a magnifying glass to every dent and scratch. Take the Rhodochrosite crystal with you everywhere you go and get into the habit of forgiving yourself for past mistakes. When thoughts of self-loathing take your natural happiness for hostage, hold on tight to Rhodochrosite and use its nurturing and loving vibes to encourage pink-tinted thoughts of self-love, the best medicine for the heart.
When it comes to the gentle healing vibrations of Rhodochrosite, pink is more than a color. It’s an attitude. In the words of fashion icon and 20th-century influencer Lilly Pulitzer, “Anything is possible with sunshine and a little pink.”
I was awakened by my friend at 8:00 AM in our second-floor room on Malapascua island. "Sefy, wake up. There are strong winds outside" he said. My mind was still groggy from sleep, and I felt the warmth of the blanket that had kept me cozy throughout the night. However, his words had weight to them, and we had been waiting for this day for three long days. We had spent six days on the island, enjoying its serene beauty and the stunning sunset views that painted the sky with new hues every evening.
The Philippines is a place that captures your heart with its enchanting islands that offer the perfect balance between adventure and tranquility, a much-needed balance for those on a hero's journey. And today, we were about to embark on our most significant adventure yet.
Carl Jung once said, "One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious." The universe follows the law of duality, and we can see its manifestation in nature in every aspect. Super Typhoon Yolanda was one such example. It was one of the most powerful tropical cyclones ever recorded in our current civilization, and it wreaked havoc on the Philippines. The typhoon was expected to hit at 10 PM, but it arrived much earlier, starting at 8 AM and lasting for two hours.
I remember feeling the fear take over me, deep in a cave, where the darkness seemed impenetrable. My legs were floating in half a meter of water, and the thin plaster ceiling was the only thing separating us from the chaos outside. I stood by the window, watching the wind gust at 300 mph, too fast for my eyes to follow. Fear gripped me, and I felt paralyzed until I slipped into a trance-like state. My brain could only register three thoughts, "I'm going to die," "I'm going to die in the Philippines," and "I haven't said goodbye to my family." However, my biological instincts were still hard at work, keeping me ready to fight or flee in a matter of seconds.
When my friend and I finally found a safe place to wait out the storm, we were both shaken to our core. It was as if a part of us had died that day. Walking around the island, I was in shock, taking in the surreal destruction that surrounded me. The darkness had descended upon the island, leaving behind no electricity, internet, clean water, or food. It seemed as if their entire world had crumbled.
As I passed by a lady sitting on the floor at the entrance of her store, now reduced to a pile of metal plates, she looked up at me with compassionate eyes, smiling. I was moved to tears, wondering how she could smile in the midst of such devastation. But then I realized that family was the most powerful value of all. In that moment, she looked at me like a mother, a sister, like I was family. And I understood that we are all brothers and sisters.
The vision for Healing Waves had been taking shape in my subconscious for years. And with your help, we can continue to shape that vision and make it a reality.
