Rhodonite is the emotional balancer. It nurtures love and encourages the brotherhood of humanity. It works strongly with the heart chakra to activate it. It also helps in achieving your true potential.
This stone is extremely beneficial in cases of emotional self-destruction and co-dependency issues.
It clears emotional wounds and helps in forgiveness and reconciliation.
The Rhodonite also promotes self-love and brings you to the awareness that anything you blame on others is really a reflection of your inner self that needs healing.
In essence, if you are looking to love yourself more and resolve inner issues relating to your heart chakra, Rhodonite is the crystal for you.
How to cleanse
Rhodonite, like most crystals, should be cleansed periodically.
My best recommendation for cleansing your crystals is to do so with smoke. This could be from sage, Palo Santo wood or incense sticks. Allow the smoke to engulf your crystal and visualize its energy being renewed. After cleansing it, set your intention for your crystal by holding it in your hands and speaking your affirmation into it. This could either be specific or more general, relating to self-love, compassion and love for others.
The Rhodonite is said to be a “first aid stone”, helping in healing emotional shock and panic.
