February 2022 Stone of the Month - Rhodochrosite
This month we celebrate the nurturing stone Rhodochrosite. Rhodochrosite is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, and is associated with the rose. Like the soft petals of a rose, the Rhodochrosite stone supports feelings of compassion, deeper emotional connections, and openness to love without judgment or expectations. The green leaves of the rose stem symbolize our potential for growth while the thorns remind us to face painful truths with loving awareness.
It is helpful in encouraging unconditional love, while also expanding your mind to a higher consciousness. It assists in attracting love by opening up the heart chakra. The stone's healing properties connects the upper and lower energy fields of the body, clearing away psychic debris that has accumulated over the years. If you are working to heal your inner child, this is a beautiful stone to utilize for meditation and to carry while doing so.
Rhodochrosite gives us the courage to trust another soul with our hearts and allows us to be vulnerable. In addition to the heart chakra, it also stimulates the sacral chakra, linking your own personal firepower and creative flow to your soul.
This magical stone also helps calm and rebalance the nervous system. It regulates and stabilizes the heartbeat, balances blood pressure and stimulates circulation, the kidneys, and reproductive organs. It alleviates migraines, skin disorders, thyroid imbalances, and intestinal problems. Rhodochrosite purifies the circulatory system and restores poor eyesight.
Wearing Rhodochrosite or meditating with it will help to enhance positive energy and a happier mood. Place it in your home to encourage a warm, loving, and high vibe atmosphere.
Rhodochrosite is mined throughout the world and can be found in Argentina, South Africa, Peru, Montana, Colorado, Russia, Romania, Spain, China, Gabon, Mexico, and Japan, with the Sweet Home Mining in Colorado as one of the most suitable places to find this stone.
