Rhodochrosite is a rescue/remedy stone, one that not only aids those in need, but one that rescues the rescuer. It first directs its energy to the self, specifically for the purposes of emotional healing. It enables one to go deep within the heart to safely acknowledge, relive, and then release one’s emotional wounds. It helps one face the truth about oneself and others, without excuses or evasion, but with loving awareness. It assists in identifying negative behaviors and ongoing patterns and brings compassion and healing, self-forgiveness, as well as an understanding of others’ responsibility for their actions. Its purifying energy cleanses and balances the emotional body, bringing resolution, peace and renewal. It is the foremost ally in healing childhood wounds, and is often referred to as the “Inner Child Stone.” It is the perfect healer for anyone who was abandoned or feels unloved, and is the stone par excellence for healing sexual abuse.
Rhodochrosite is a remarkable stone for enhancing spirituality and attuning to one’s higher self. Worn in jewelry or carried, used in meditation or crystal healing layouts, it expands one’s consciousness, channeling spiritual awareness into the physical body to be manifested. It is a great tool for contemplating the duality of nature and how it affects one’s life. In addition to its general properties, Gem Rhodochrosite is esteemed for healing disconnection from the spiritual realms and inspiring one to open the heart to universal love. It links one into the karmic purpose of the present incarnation, and enables one to see prior soul contracts and renegotiate these if necessary.
