Rose Quartz Meditation To Heal A Broken Heart
Our heart, which seems so strong and sturdy, is in truth a delicate organ where our most precious feelings are stored. Oftentimes life, with its highs and lows, makes it ache intensely. When this happens, we need to heed its call for help, and do what we can to ease its pain.
The following meditation can be performed in a static or dynamic way.
For the static version you will need 5 pieces of Rose Quartz.
You can use polished or raw ones, depending on your taste.
I find the raw form of minerals to be more powerful. Also, the raw chunks are usually cheaper to buy, so double bargain here!
Sit down on your yoga mat in easy pose or, if you prefer, on a chair. Spine straight, shoulder relaxed.
Place four pieces of rose quartz around you. One in front of you, one behind, one on your left side and the last piece on the right one.
The fifth piece is in your right hand, and you will now place it on your heart chakra (a little above the space between your breasts). Place your left hand on the right one. Breathe deeply, visualizing the pink energy entering your aura from the pieces around you, and your heart, from the piece you are holding.
Do this from 3 to 11 minutes or just as long as you can. If you do it every day for 40 days, you will notice great benefits.
For the dynamic version you will need just 1 piece of rose quartz, a pink quartz necklace or pendant.
Again, I find the raw piece more useful than anything else.
Go walking into nature or on the seaside. If you can’t, go to a park or your garden. Hold the quartz as described above. Breathe deeply and walk slowly, connecting to the living spirit of our Mother Earth, give her your sorrow while she projects her loving care into you through her stone.
You can alternate the dynamic and the static meditations if you want to complete a 40-day sadhana (= spiritual discipline) to bring healing to your heart.
You can enhance greatly this meditation by invoking the angels’ assistance or any spiritual teacher you trust, like Mother Theresa, Amma, Jesus, etc.
You can also listen to a mantra while meditating. If you do that, try to surrender to the mantra. No thoughts, only the words of the mantra. The healing will be quicker.
If you like Sanskrit mantras, I recommend Deva Premal’s version of Om Shanti Om (to bring peace) Om Namo Bhagavate Vasudevaya (to nurture your inner child) or Om Ram Ramaya Swaha (to bring healing) and Aham Prema (for forgiveness). If you wish to know more on these mantras, see the book Healing Mantras recommended below.
If you prefer Sikh mantras, then try Snatam Kaur’s version of Guru Guru Wahe Guru, Guru Ram Das Guru (this great spiritual teacher, Guru Ram Das, is revered for his endless compassion and healing power).
If it is Buddhist mantras you feel attracted to, then the great Om Mani Padme Hum is the one you want to listen to. Its benefits are so many! It will suffice to know that it brings Divine Compassion, for oneself and others.
I wish you all the best on your journey toward healing.
