This Is How Rose Quartz Can Help Improve Your Love Life

As the seasons change, you may be looking for someone special to transform your scene, or maybe you've already found the love of your life but it's time to give your relationship a tune up. From trusted friends to co-workers, love advice can be pretty easy to come by, but instead of questioning another person, consider turning your query to the universe instead. We check our zodiac compatibility with our mates, so why not enlist a little help from the healing properties of crystals?

Crystals have been used in cultures all over the world for healing, meditation, and protection. Rose quartz, a pink form of quartz associated with Venus, the goddess of love, is said to possess properties of intimacy and compassion. Rose quartz speaks to all kinds of love — from healing communication with family to developing a deeper bond with spouses and friends, and even the ever so important self-love. And let's be honest, many of us can benefit from cultivating more self-confidence and acceptance. 

Let's take a closer look at how rose quartz could improve your love life.

How to incorporate rose quartz into your love life

According to healer and expert Kuhoo Guptane's 2020 piece in Architectural Digest, one way to use rose quartz to harness positive love energy is by placing "rough or raw pieces of rose quartz in the south-west direction in the bedroom." This direction is important because it represents romance, love, and marriage. You can also fill a glass bowl with filtered water and rose quartz pieces and place it on your nightstand. This can supposedly help to keep the calm when you and your partner aren't exactly seeing eye to eye. 

There are reportedly many ways to activate your rose quartz to help unblock your heart chakras, from specific rituals that involve setting intentions and affirmations, to creating a rose quartz mist to spray on your face or around your home. 

Keep in mind that none of these rose quartz practices are guarantees to a more robust love life. According to Healthline, there is very little scientific evidence to support the benefits of crystals. The most important thing to focus on is your willingness to make what you feel are needed changes and improvements to yourself.
