So I say: What do you have to lose by selecting particular stones that are aligned with your love intention? It will remind you of a positive thought about love and through that association you will be empowered. Putting the gemstone on, touching it during the day and seeing it in the mirror will remind you of your Love Intention and thus serve to activate it mentally. Through these simple actions, your gemstone can help you focus on an exciting love future and interrupt the noise about past or current disappointments.
Below are three categories of Love Intentions and select stones to go along with them based on both Eastern and Western lore*** . Pick a stone or several (most are inexpensive) and wear them next to your skin as necklaces or rings. Each gemstone is like a string you tie around your finger to remember something.
Finding the One
Rose Quartz heart, Goldstone heart, Lapis
BTW, in YourTango’s 31-Day Love Life Makeover I gave my mentee, Nadette a silver and lapis bracelet that worked in a mysterious way!
Getting a Commitment
Diamond chips, Jade butterfly (Chinese symbol of successful love), Pearls
Increasing Passion/Intimacy in A Relationship
Moonstone, Sunstone, Fire Quartz Heart
Go shopping and give yourself some gem therapy. You will feel more grounded and focused on the love you want to create. And that much more likely to get it.
