Rhodonite Healing Crystal

Having been gifted the most beautiful crystal book (and cards) recently through one of the most kind and generous souls I have the pleasure of knowing, I thought it appropriate to use this books representation to tell you about the healing crystal Rhodonite.

When choosing the small Rhodonite I use, I was drawn to one stone in particular. It has what i can only describe as a stitch mark, like a nurse would use on an open wound. Not really knowing what Rhodonite was truly for at the time, I thought it remarkable when I read the benefits - healing heartache! It was a stone I needed at the time and if I'm

completely honest, still do.

Heartache can relate to so many different things. Sadly everyone will experience it throughout their lifetime, some more than others, but how do we begin to deal with heartache? How can we get over heartache and can someone ever get over it? From personal experience, yes you can, although as it mentions below it's how you repair the wounded heart in the first place. We have a running joke in the family, how I like to fix everything with tape, but as I have come to find out over the years, tape is only a quick fix, it will eventually unravel exposing the problem again and again.

The pattern on my Rhodonite gave me the biggest clue on how to deal with heartache, it needs to be treated properly, stitched closed so it can never be reopened. However, with stitched wounds you get scars. Of course, we all know they'll be painful at first, but with some gentle TLC they will eventually heal and fade in time, even the deepest. The scars are simple reminders of how far we have come, so be proud of your scars for these are the proof of how amazingly brave you are.

The Illustrated Crystallary by Maia Toll

When you're feeling calm and centred,your heart beats in an even rhythm. Listening to it becomes self-soothing, helping you remember your personal cadence. But when you're anxious, especially when you're perpetually anxious, your heart stutters and skips. Your own skittish heart sends you deeper into unease and angst. But it's not your heart that's the problem. The problem lies deeper, rooted in the vulnerability that is causing the anxiety, Put your hand on your heart, Rhodonite instructs, close your eyes and feel it's beat. Once you're in sync with yourself, as your heart what's feeding it's anxiety. To heal your heart, you need to first know in what way you feel vulnerable in the world. It's time for this first step.

Seal Your Energy

Rhodonite is used to heal wounds, whether physical or emotional. It closes gaps and seals leaks so you can remember how to be whole. You're energy body can get leaky in places where it's thin or tor. These holes leave you vulnerable to outside influences. They may slowly siphon your energy, leaving you feeling scattered, weak or panicky.

Energy follows intention, so sealing up your energy can be done with active imagining. First choose your tool: Will you envision stitching the hole with a needle and thread? Taping with duct tape? It doesn't need to be pretty or fancy, it just needs to feel real to you.

Now close your eyes and imagine that you know where every energy leak is. Seal them, one at a time, calling on the rosy glow of Rhodonite to help you heal.

Heart Healing

Some emotions are smooth like river rocks and warm like a hearth stone. These are emotions we treasure and return to, letting them remind us of the goodness of the world and the joy of being alive.

But other emotions are jagged and rough, they continue to poke and prod at us until we consciously release them. Anger and resentment are like this, and nurturing them can create wounds and energy leaks. While the original hurt may have been precipitated by someone else, when you hold tight to clawing emotions, you're harming yourself and injuring you're own heart. If you need to cut a cord between you and someone or something in your past you can also use the powerful crystal Obsidian (see Obsidian blog).
