Rhodochrosite comforts and uplifts us by radiating unconditional love and compassion! It has a deep connection to the Heart Chakra, opening the heart to love. It comforts us during hard times encouraging us to be positive and optimistic that better times are ahead, but not until we heal the emotional wounds suppressed inside. Rhodochrosite urges us to confront our learned behaviors and beliefs to determine if they are natural or if we only hold onto them because of the pain we once experienced surrounding them. Rhodochrosite encourages us to face our fears honestly and openly. Expressing our feelings is the way towards healing and Rhodochrosite will not let us hide our truth.
