[Mandalas by Mel] – Anticipation | Rose | Rhodochrosite

Anticipation

 

According to the Universe of Symbolism, the rosebud means anticipation, and the opening of the heart and spirit to treasured dreams and the fulfillment of desires. Rosebuds are also a symbol of new love, and an invitation to friendship, courting and romance. The rosebud flower is in harmony with the heart chakra.

I’ve also chosen rhodochrosite and rose quartz to feature in this week’s crystal mandala; both crystals known for their power to attract love into our lives. Rhodochrosite teaches the heart to assimilate painful feelings without shutting down, and removes denial; while also encouraging spontaneous expression of feelings.

Rose quartz teaches the true essence of love, opening the heart to love, and encouraging self-forgiveness, self-trust and self-worth.

“The idea of waiting for something makes it more exciting.” ~ Andy Warhol
