Whether you’ve survived a breakup, you’re a single woman in your 50s looking for a new relationship or you’re partnered and looking to keep things hot, placing some crystals around your home that attract love and passion to your life, would help you clarify your path and start the new year on the right foot.
Crystals are not just pretty rocks. They are little wonders of nature whose vibrations, arising from the unique way their atoms and molecules move and interact together, can affect our minds and souls.
And when it comes to attracting love, just the fact that you’re carrying one means you’re opening up your heart to the possibility, no matter what your age.
“Our bodies are dynamic, electromagnetic organisms—we have physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energy flowing through us all the time,” says Amy Mercree, holistic health expert and author of The Mood Book: Crystals, Oils, and Rituals to Elevate Your Spirit. “Crystals are a fun and unique way to help direct and influence that energy towards greater purpose when used with the right intention.”
How to use crystals to attract love
Obviously, crystals aren’t a magic wand, but they might help provide a sense of confidence and love. In the end, no matter what sort of relationship you’re looking for, the first step to attracting a potential partner is self-esteem.
Loving yourself is crucial because everything is stemmed from it, and although the relationship we might have with ourselves can be complicated, it is the starting point for what might follow. What crystals can do is support you along the journey, while meditating and reflecting on your “highest and greatest good”, helping you discover what you really need to manifest love in your life.
There are various different ways to use crystals, either alone or with a professional healer. Before starting, however, it’s important to set a clear intention for your crystals. For example, if you’re trying to bring more energy into your love life, visualize how you would feel with that added boost. If you’re trying to cultivate more harmony in your relationship, think of calming thoughts.
“Different stones attract – and work – for the individual in their own way,” explains spiritual healer, Emma Knowles, author of The Power Of Crystal Healing. “How we use them, and how we respond to them, is entirely unique. So too, are their benefits: Crystals act as filters for our energy. They can be used not only to draw out the things which no longer serve us but also to draw forth what we desire – be it confidence, love or energy“.
The best crystals to attract love
If you’ve found yourself suddenly intrigued by crystals, you’re in good company: Victoria Beckham carries rose quartz and black tourmaline backstage at her fashion shows, Shirley Maclaine keeps amethyst on her nightstand, and Naomi Campbell carries rhodonite and rose quartz in her bag, always. Just to name a few.
In the end, who doesn’t want to experience true love? Crystals may help us in spiritual healing and guide us in manifesting love, making us happier and increasing our self-esteem and confidence.
Here are some of the most powerful crystals that might help you to unravel your love journey in midlife according to experts.
- Rose Quartz
Rose quartz is a beautiful, pale pink stone and a symbol of unconditional love for ourselves, others, and the earth. It can invite healing heartbreak and help us to attract a soulmate; equally, it reminds us of the importance of loving ourselves.
“This famous love stone is an obvious choice when you’re looking for the one but it will ultimately guide you to love yourself and break down the barriers to receiving love“, says Tamara Driessen, spiritual healer and author of the book Crystal Code. “It teaches us about compassion and forgiveness. Because no matter how much someone adores you, you’ve gotta be feeling yourself“.
Wearing, carrying or meditating with a rose quartz crystal opens the mind and heart and because of its balancing and cleansing properties is good to hold or have around whenever you feel uncertain or would like to focus and see your way more clearly.
According to experts, the best way to harness unconditional love through this stone is to hold a piece in your hand while repeating an affirmation: “I attract love into my life, my life is full of love right now, my life is full of abundant love. I am a magnet for love, right now.”
This crystal promotes healing and peace, and it’s sometimes recommended as a post-breakup helper. It helps us identify the importance of self-love. This is because only when we truly accept and love ourselves can we have the sense of security to love others.
Besides, this is one of the best crystals for protection. Not only does it help manifest love and fight bad omens in relationships, but it also guides us to walk on the right path with its spiritual healing powers.
Rhodonite is a crystal that has immense healing powers, which makes it the most suitable for heartbroken people. Well known for guiding people through their turbulent breakups and relationships, Rhodonite helps to clear away any negative energy that no longer serves us.
It helps us let go of any turmoil or pain so we can reach a place of forgiveness and move on from whatever is holding us back.
“Work with this stone to release yourself from the emotional shackles that are preventing you from achieving the kind of love you desire and deserve“, says Heather Askinosie, a crystal expert and co-founder of the crystals and gems store Energy Muse, “The pink and black markings of this gem work in tandem to release us from negativity or trauma and activate forgiveness and contentment, clearing the way for love to fill the space the darkness has left behind. This stone can also activate the solar plexus chakra, offering compassion and empathy for others and ensuring all your actions are motivated by love“.
Well known as the stone of love and luck, Moonstone is a crystal which radiates and represents feminine energy. It brings stability, balance and calmness into the relationship by default. Considered by crystal experts the stone of destiny, it has properties that allow us to connect with the highest sense of self. Its beautiful combination of whites and blues takes on a celestial, iridescent quality that inspires us to embrace our own inner beauty.
This stone will teach you how to be in touch with your intuition which is important when it comes to making decisions in any relationship. Wearing moonstone jewellery around the neck (or even in a pocket) will help remove stress, and tension in thoughts, mind and body.
- Green Aventurine
Classified as a “success” and “wealth” stone, Green Venturine uses its energy to harness success in multiple areas of your life, including weathering the ups and downs of your long-term relationship.
According to the late Judy Hall, who was a leading authority on the use of crystals for personal and spiritual development and member of The College Of Psychic Studies, this is a “more mature stone for more mature stages of love, inviting passion into the lives of those of more mature years and enabling love to be ongoing.”
Being close to a green aventurine is said to open your heart chakra, and even serve as “armour” for your heart- blocking it from negative energy and emotional pollution.
Whatever crystals you may choose, work with them to gain a deeper understanding and acceptance of your personality and destiny. As Heather Askinosie once said: “When we combine the healing properties of crystals with a mindful effort to evolve, we can finally embark on the spiritual path toward the person we were always meant to be.”
Taking responsibility for all of your experiences, learning to set boundaries that protect and nurture your relationships, with yourself and others, as well as improving your self-esteem are some of the most important steps to overcoming limiting beliefs in midlife and then opening up again to love. Only by sharing the purest version of yourself with a potential partner will help you establish a deep and meaningful connection. Crystals have the potential to be your best allies along this path.
