When there’s love in your life, anything is possible. You will be more inspired to work hard and achieve your goals. You will also be happy to dream and make those dreams come true.

When everything is going great in your personal life, the good energies will cascade to the other aspects of your life and invite more abundance and prosperity.

First we must learn to love ourselves fully, as without self-love, we cannot offer healthy love to another.

What is a stone of love?

For thousands of years humans have sought out ways to attract love into their lives. Many rituals, talismans and spells have been used in time, usually involving crystals.

A stone or crystal, when filled with the right intention, can aid in healing the heart, building self-esteem and forgiving past pain. Because of their balancing qualities and powerful vibrations, love stones can help you to align with and open your heart to happiness and love.

The natural vibrations of crystals help run everything from watches to computers, and they are great to bring into your own energy field and personal life to bring about a change.

Each crystal radiates a different vibration or frequency. Depending on their unique vibrations, crystal energy can be harnessed for love.

Crystal care

Crystal healing is an excellent form of natural healing but care and consideration must also be given to the stones that are used. Crystals accumulate negative energy and this needs to be cleared in order to keep the crystal in its best state of being. Most types of crystal can be cleansed by soaking them in clear water but this is not suitable for all crystals. Varieties such as selenite and calcite can be damaged or even dissolve when left in water. A simple and universal method of cleansing is to leave the crystals in moonlight overnight.

No crystal has the ability to solve all of your problems or miraculously bring your soulmate into your life. However, they are able to help you develop a healthy state of mind and emotions so that you can be open to giving and receiving love.
