Crystals for Love
Posted on December 03 2021
Love. It is the number one thing talked about in movies and sung about in songs. In Greek there are seven words for love highlighting familial love, romantic love, friendship, and the love of yourself.
The Heart Chakra is the center of all forms of love, and when unbalanced it is much harder to let go of the past with understanding and compassion. Past relationships and emotional trauma can keep you from accepting unconditional love and hinder your spiritual growth.
The crystals below will help provide the love and harmony that we all desire.
