Love, compassion, forgiveness are all qualities found in the heart chakra. Located in the center of the chest, this chakra connects the lower physical chakras with the upper spiritual chakras. In a balanced chakra system, the heart chakra accepts the purely spiritual information of the upper chakras and translates it into the language of the lower three chakras. This translation is also true from the lower chakras to the upper chakras. Given this important role, it is vital to have a healthy, balanced, and clear heart chakra.
We are taught that it is important to love and forgive others since childhood, and that is true. However, it is most necessary to love all parts of one’s self to truly be able to love another. From that place of love for the self, the love is then able to spread to others. The following is a list of stones to help with self love, forgiveness, and compassion:
Rose quartz is a stone that can help in all the different areas of the heart chakra. Wear a rose pendant right over your heart charka to help balance and clear it.
Rhodonite is a great stone to heal old hurts of the heart. It clears, activates, stimulates and grounds energy in the heart chakra.
Aventurine encourages compassion and empathy. A good stone for protecting the heart chakra as one is learning to live from the heart.
Green tourmaline clears and opens the heart chakra as it allows one to be more compassionate and patient.
Kunzite connects you to universal love and activates the heart chakra will aligning it with the throat and third eye. This allows one to speak from the heart about what they see.
