Grieving and the use of Rose Quartz crystals as part of the healing process

Thursday, 16 September 2010 11:21

rose_quartz.jpgHere is an article that I wrote a while ago about grieving and the use of crystals as part of the healing process, which has appeared in the latest SANDS (SA) newsletter.

SANDS is a wonderful organisation that offers support to bereaved parents and relatives who have suffered the death of a baby.  It is a self-help voluntary organisation run by and for bereaved parents.  It was a great comfort to me to talk to one of the wonderful support people at SANDS after Emma died.  It was so good to talk to someone that had gone through the experience themselves.  Their website is www.sandssa.org if you would like to have a look.  They have a checklist for relatives and friends, which is great, as I know it can be difficult to know what to do or say (it does not really matter what you say as long as you connect).

I wrote this article nearly a year ago just before Emma's 7th birthday.  And today, I just noticed that I put my Rose Quartz necklace on (after wearing my Clear Quartz for most of the year) and it is exactly one month before Emma's 8th birthday.

'Grieving and the use of crystals as part of the healing process

I am not an expert on grieving but I have experienced loss.  I know what it feels like.  I know the nothing.  I know the feeling of helplessness.  I know that we all seek a way, any way to deal with it.  I want to share some things that helped me.

My first baby died.  She was stillborn.  I could not comprehend that something like that could happen.  It was absolutely devastating.  We went from being the happiest people in the world to utter emptiness.

Losing my child was so incredibly sad.  It seemed so unfair and wrong.  I remember watching the second of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and there is so much fighting going on and amidst all this death and destruction, the king is inconsolable when his son dies.  I thought that this really depicted how I felt.  That anything could happen around me and it would not matter.

I did lots of crying - the biggest, fattest tears I have ever shed, not like the tears you cry for yourself.  It made me question everything.  I kept asking "why?".  Was it something I had done, something I had not done.

There are lots of things that helped.  The most important thing was time.  I had lots of quiet time, walks along the river and being able to talk about Emma helped.  Writing in my journal helped as well.  It helped me to understand my feelings.

A few years down the track, when I thought I had dealt with my grief pretty well, I had an overriding desire to get a Rose Quartz crystal.  I knew that Rose Quartz was known as the Love crystal but that was about all that I knew.  The thought kept persisting until I just had to go out and get one.  I wanted a necklace so I could wear it, so I got some leather and tied it around my neck.

rose_quartz.jpgI wore my Rose Quartz crystal necklace continuously for six months.  It made me feel peaceful just wearing it and I would touch it now and again during the day.  It was not anything I was doing consciously, it just made me feel good.

I learned that my beautiful stone had helped to heal my heart.  I did not realise it at the time, it just made me feel good wearing it.  It is subtle, but subtle can be powerful.  And when you are in deep grief, sometimes subtle is the most effective.  My heart felt lighter in the morning.  I had dealt with my grief pretty well but my Rose Quartz crystal healed my heart; it did not feel quite so fragile anymore.

I decided to learn more about crystals and their healing power.  I was astonished when I read some of the crystal books that what I had experienced with my Rose Quartz was just what was described as its healing properties.

As a result, I started my business, Earth Goddess, selling crystals for those who want to heal themselves.  Not only are my Rose Quartz crystals blessed with harmony and balance to aid the healing process, but they look beautiful too.

Then I felt drawn to write a book about my experience of losing Emma.  I felt like it was important for both Emma and I.  It was also an important part of my healing.  And writing my book, Doing It with Love!, helped me to share with others the tools that I have used.

I think of Emma every day.  The sadness is always there but I am also the happiest I have ever been.

It is her 7th birthday in a week.  Every  year it hits me differently.  I always feel a bit more fragile in October. 

I have been wearing my Clear Quartz necklace for months now but just the other day I put my Rose Quartz necklace on.  I have noticed that whenever I feel like I need to be gentle with myself and need some comfort I end up wearing my Rose Quartz.  And when I get closer to Emma's birthday, gentle is good.

I am learning more and more about these amazing stones all the time.  It still astonishes me that I end up wearing just the crystal I need.  Rose Quartz is such a gentle and comforting stone - but powerful as well (a bit like women).  We can be gentle but we can also be like Amazons as well.

Crystals are a great tool for healing yourself.  Give them a try.'
