I have often called rhodochrosite
the stone of grandmotherly compassion.
Strong love and empathy
flavored with a fierce desire for what is truly good for you.
Good for your spirit, your growth, your character.
Like the compassion of a Zen master who may whack you with a stick
to remind you to be present.
Knowing that your suffering only lives outside of your presence.
Most people I talk with
receive the energy of rhodochrosite with more softness.
Reporting a feeling like being enfolded in a warm embrace.
This particular sweet little heart feels very nurturing.
An embracing of the heart...
