Rose quartz and I are very old friends. She’s stuck by my side through the last decade or so. And I am mad grateful for her loyalty. Every single time I turned to her she came through 😘

She is renowned as a stone for the heart. All matters of the heart. Both energetically and physically. She safeguards this life-giving entity which resides in our chest, and promotes its overall well-being.

To say I love her is to make a profound understatement.

I will be carrying her with me for the next three days. And posting what I feel she brings my way. I’m pretty excited about this little ‘experiment’. It has been some time since she and I walked together ❤


I put my precious rose quartz piece in my purse last night. I’ve been wanting to work with her for a few days now. And I kept forgetting to snatch her up in the morning and take her with me. So I didn’t want to leave the house without her again today.

I forgot I had her with me, which is so easy to do when you are a crystal toter 😉 But then I was looking over my list of blog posts in progress. And I came across this one. Finding it prompted me to retrieve her from my purse and bring her more fully into my day. And it also brought to my attention that not remembering she was with me in no way stopped her from working on my behalf.

I have found myself feeling warmly toward people that I don’t normally have much affection for this morning. And that’s a good thing! Because as humans we should strive to cultivate warmth, compassion, understanding, and kindness in our world, as much as possible.

I am also dreaming of domesticity today. There was a time in my life when that was of great importance to me. But that was long ago. I assumed it was no longer one of my desires. And yet it rears its pretty little head today. Hmmmmmmm?!?! Sort of delightful if you ask me ❤


I was over-the-top blessed to hear from someone today, who holds a piece of my heart. It is owned by them. I gave it to them freely, and it is my hope that they never seek to return it. I don’t want it back. It feels like it was rightfully theirs all along.

Hearing from them changed my head-space in the best of ways. It brought a wave of peace to my soul. The timing could not have been more perfect. And if that sort of synchronicity in the area of human connection is not the work of my long time friend rose quartz, then I don’t know what is. It is classic for her. So much love to her. And so very much love to them. I fully believe that our paths will intertwine again one day ❤


Rose quartz, my son, and I took a little road trip today. None of us felt much like going. It felt more like a lazy day at home to us. But the errand was necessary. So we got ourselves together (just barely) and headed out the door.

We had a nice visit on the ride. We always do. But it was just a bit more enjoyable today.

We went to make a large purchase for the food truck and there had been a little dissension with the sales people in that office prior to today. I wasn’t really looking forward to how the transaction might go. But it went smoothly. Very smoothly.

And much of that was because I didn’t react adversely to the situation. Even when it gave me cause to. Don’t get me wrong, it is not unusual for me to act like a big girl. I do it most of the time, LOL! But I didn’t even get my insides in a swirl. And there were plenty of underlying nuances going on that would have normally aggravated me a bit. Instead I had the innate desire to avoid conflict. And the necessary level of constructive aggressiveness to work the situation to my advantage. A perfect combination for this task 😉


As a person who has worked with alternative healing and spiritual modalities for decades, I recognize that some of the emotions, thoughts, and events which occurred while I carried my lovely piece of rose quartz with me may not be related to her presence.

And still, I don’t discredit the sixth sense I have cultivated about these sorts of things either. And I put forth information which I really do attribute to the energetic frequency that this stone brought to my days.

My intent in approaching this post in this manner, as opposed to the usual style in which healing crystal property posts are written, was to offer something a bit different. More personal. Less general.

I hope this space inspires others to share their experience with healing stones. I think it would be beneficial for everyone to have more information about stones presented in this way available to them.

If you have experiences with healing stones, particularly rose quartz, that you would be willing to share, please put them in the comments. I am very excited to hear them ❤ 😉 ❤

And … connect with me on facebook and pinterest to stay abreast of any other happenings here at Bohemian Apothecarist.

As always, your presence is greatly appreciated. I adore that you are here. And I just know that we are going to have great fun together ❤
