Yoga Love

Rose Quartz heart

Rose Quartz heart

Rose Quartz is perhaps one of the best known gemstones in the crystal world. Commonly known as the “stone of love.” I’ve been placing a Rose Quartz heart by my Yoga mat for the past week, in honor of Valentine’s Day. It helps me put my focus on heart opening yoga poses. Asanas like, cobra pose, cat pose, upward facing dog and bridge pose. At the end of my yoga sessions I sit and meditate with Rose Quartz and listen to its gifts.

Rose Quartz first and foremost reminds us to love ourselves. Each day when I get on my mat I am demonstrating this self love. I bring self acceptance to the mat when I feel the tightness in my muscles, and forgive the places in my body where it is difficult for me to stretch further. We often distance ourselves from self love when we feel un-entitled to it, or less than, or unworthy, or even guilty. But without self love there can be no love of others. Fill your heart with love and the world outside you sees it and feels it. May you have a love filled day.

You can find Rose Quartz Hearts and Jewelry on my web site:

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Thanks for this beautiful post. We can’t hear often enough that we must love ourselves before we love another. So much of what we think is love is neediness or gratitude – you make me feel good about myself, and so I am grateful and “feel” love … but love is not really a feeling; it’s an action. When I love myself, I take care of my body, fill it with wholesome foods and give it exercise. I make sure I take time to play and work. I nurture healthy relationships and gently remove myself from toxic ones. And so love goes. Thank you, Debra! You are one of the living examples of love in my life. MJ

Thank you MJ for your kind words and sharing. Your reminder that taking care of ourselves includes removing ourselves from toxic situations is so helpful.
