6 Ways to Work with a Crystal Heart
Crystals come in many different shapes and sizes, each one offering a specific benefit or unique energy. One of the most beautiful and energetically powerful shapes is a heart. While even just looking at a crystal heart can have an impact on how you feel, there’s much more to this shape than meets the eye.
As the center of your life force, your heart governs a range of emotions and feelings. While the most obvious among these is matters of love, the heart space also governs joy and vitality. Similarly, a crystal heart represents the energy of the heart space. This shape is ideal for supporting intentions ranging from love and happiness to vitality and passion. The energy of the stone used within the crystal heart dictates the specific energy and intention, but all crystal hearts connect with your heart space.
With so many crystals out there, how do you know which hearts to use and what intention to set? Here are 6 of our favorite ways to use a crystal heart:
Amethyst is a stone of intuition. In the shape of a heart, it aligns your heart with your head, bringing your intuition and your heart’s deepest desires into alignment. When working with an Amethyst heart, place it over your third eye to get clear and tap into your higher self.
A Rose Quartz heart is one of the most powerful tools for attracting love. From attracting a new relationship or infusing more love into a current relationship, your Rose Quartz heart will open your heart to love of all kinds. If your intention is to call in a new relationship, hold the crystal in your hand in front of your chest, and lift the stone up to the universe. If you are already in a relationship, hold the stone in the same manner as you visualize yourself and your partner. Program the crystal with your intention of deeper love, and then bring your crystal toward your heart. Then, place it in your bra or on your nightstand to keep your intention going.
Fluorite is the ideal wishing stone. Its rainbow hues and whimsical energy encourage you to suspend your sense of reality and dream big. In the shape of a heart, it allows you to tap into what you really want in life. To wish upon your stone, hold a Fluorite heart in your hand, make 3 wishes and lift the stone up to surrender your wishes to the universe.
Carnelian is a stone of passion and creativity. When you are feeling uninspired or missing the zest for life, a Carnelian heart can get your heart beating and reinvigorate your spirit. Place this crystal over your heart whenever you want an infusion of passion and excitement to help you enjoy your life.
The iridescent flashes of a Labradorite crystal open your eyes to all the possibilities around you. Working with a Labradorite heart nudges you to get out of your way and expand outside of the box. Allow yourself to go beyond your normal routine. Try something new. Push the limits. This is the ideal crystal to help you get out of a rut! While holding the crystal in your hand, ask yourself, If I didn’t have any limits, what would I be doing? Write down what comes to mind and place the Labradorite heart on top of your paper as a reminder to unleash your limitless potential.
The darker energy of a Rainbow Obsidian heart helps you to release the darker energy within your own heart. This is the stone for getting past the facade of “everything’s fine.” Your crystal can help you start to acknowledge any heaviness in your heart. What’s lingering or holding you back? What pain or sadness do you need to let go of and heal? Lay on your back for 7 minutes with your stone over your heart. Let the crystal start to absorb the darkness so your heart can begin to heal.
