Pink Calcite – (Heart Chakra) – (Zodiac of Cancer)
There is a special place in my heart for all of the Calcites. In this post I’ll share the gentle, loving energies of Pink Calcite – The Stone of Compassion. This stone is similar to Mangano Calcite, but has a different Heart intention. Find out the Pink Calcite spiritual properties and how you can benefit from their supportive and healing blessings!
Science of Pink Calcite
Calcite is one of the most common minerals on this Earth. Given its ability to cleanse and purify, I consider that a good thing for the population of the Earth. Calcite is often used as an acid neutralizer and high quality calcite is also used in antacid medications. This crystal is also fairly soft and delicate, so should be handled with care.
Historical Significance of Pink Calcite
The name is derived from the Latin word for ‘lime’ – calx. Limestone is made up primarily of Calcite.
Metaphysical Attributes of Pink Calcite
All Calcite is a powerful cleanser and amplifier of energy. Just having Calcite in a room will clear it of all negative energies. If you are moving into a new home or office, place some Calcite around the entire space to give it a thorough energetic cleansing before moving in. It invigorates stagnant energy within the body. It acts as an amplifier of all energies, so it is especially helpful when using Reiki or any other energy-based healing practice. Calcite also holds warmth and energy, so can be charged with energy and intention for future spiritual practices.
The Pink Calcite spiritual properties help you develop deep, unwavering compassion for both yourself and others. This stone connects to the loving energy of Quan Yin and helps us cultivate unconditional love for all. If you are having a difficult relationship with someone, maybe a family member or co-worker, this crystal helps you see a situation from their point of view and enhances understanding. Pink Calcite helps the heart grow and inspire deep love and compassion for people you don’t even know. This is a great stone for encouraging works of service, charity, and selfless acts.
Pink Calcite also helps us develop deep, genuine compassion for yourself. It helps you overcome self-criticism and self-blame. If you feel that you are your own worst critic, never do anything “right,” or aren’t meeting your own expectations – Pink Calcite can help you dissolve and release those feelings that cause you to “beat yourself up.” This stone helps you to be gentler to yourself and learn to be your own best friend.
Physical Healing Benefits of Pink Calcite
The physical healing benefits of Pink Calcite helps to ease heart troubles. It is also said to ease digestion issues caused by anxiety and stress.
Pink Calcite Mantra Practice
Sit in a seated meditation position, holding the Pink Calcite in your less dominant hand to receive its energy. Really feel the support of the cushion or floor beneath you. You are grounded and supported by the Earth’s energies. Imagine a bright pink light shining brightly from your Heart Chakra. This brilliant light surrounds you and cleanses your entire body. Repeat this mantra, “I am Loving. I am Open Hearted. I am ready to learn to Love Myself and Others.”
