Wearing, carrying or meditating with Rhodochrosite helps make one buoyant and cheerful, dynamic and active. It is mentally enlivening, stimulating one’s creativity, dream states and sense of personal power. It allows for spontaneous expression of feelings, and can enhance passion and sexuality.
Rhodochrosite is a great stone for calling a new love into one’s life, a friend or a romantic partner that is a soulmate, one who helps us learn necessary lessons for our higher good. This stone can beautifully guide one in the quest for emotional happiness, help one move forward after a period of doubt, and express love toward others without fear of rejection.
Rhodochrosite increases mind-to-mind or telepathic links between you and family members or animals. It can also be used as a calling-back crystal to generate news or contact with a lost friend, relative or former love. Place the crystal next to a photograph of the missing person and place your hands on either side of the stone. Visualize where and when you were last together, say the person’s name softly three times and ask them to get in touch or send news. For a pet, imagine it back in its place, and leave the crystal where it used to love sitting or sleeping, or on a surface near the exit or entrance the animal used most.
