A lot of people believe in the power of stones but just as many don't.
Personally, it makes a lot of sense to me that stones can help you focus with different areas of your life.
A lot of scientific research has shown that stones do resonate different energies or frequencies, however these meanings have been applied not by scientists but by those who are more intuitive, in tune and open to our connections with the earth and what it provides us.
For those who are still not convinced, basic psychology, that is the kind of psychology that makes self fulfilling prophecies an every day influencer can help you use the stones to focus your goals.
Its easy! Take an area of your life that you want to work on - say self love - grab a rose quartz necklace, bracelet or ring and use the stone as a constant reminder of what your goal is. Every time you look at or touch the stone or feel it against your skin be reminded "I want to be kinder to myself" and it will happen. The power of your mind just may be what makes the magic happen!
