In December I wore a purple jasper every day and it just helped so much.
(I've been wearing rhodochrosite for about a year and a half, make of that what you will..)
Anyway, I recently pulled out the rose quartz and have some sizable pieces (mediated with amethyst) by my bedside. Rose quartz on your bedside is supposed to bring you love, and you mediate that with amethyst. I must say, I really do feel love coming towards me in huge waves on a daily basis. It's funy cause you think romantic love, and that's why I put it there, but still all genuine love, no matter the exact definition, is pretty damn fine.
Last weekend my mother and I made a pilgrimage to a place in the hills to buy something I was recommended - a soulmate quartz. I found one. She only had one. And it's about 15 cm in length, and about that in circumference. I have it too by my bedside. If anyone out there has any advice as to what I should be doing with that, other than that, I'd love to know.
I wondered if maybe my nightmares were due to that - it's a pretty large, strong piece. But then last night I had me the opposite of a nightmare so ... *shrugs*
