The Story Behind Today’s Gift
A friend called her up and told her what’s been happening. Is there any sound sadder than a breaking heart? She listened carefully and then said, “oh my sweet friend I’m so sorry! I’m sending love to you and sending love to the situation. Is there anything else can I do?” Her friend said, “Thank you. I always feel your love surrounding me. Can you please send more love to the situation, because I cannot do that myself anymore. I’m soul-bruised and battle-weary, I have nothing left to give. But it would be a comfort to me, to know that you are sending love to the situation, since I cannot.” And so she sent love to her friend and love to the situation. She held her friend and the situation in a circle of Light and prayed for a swift and healthy resolution.
The situation is ongoing and there’s no clear end in sight. But her friend feels the love and is grateful for it.
Rhodonite gives first-aid to the heart. It helps while a heart is breaking, when it is already broken, when it is being put back together, and later on still when we are dealing with the scars. Rhodonite gives love directly to whomever needs it most and also gives love to the bigger situations and wider world. It is a stone of true friendship and promises us that we are not alone. It promises that our pain and our joy, our struggles and our triumphs are witnessed with interest and sympathy. Rhodonite sings to us softly, rocks us gently, soothes our weary soul. It reminds us that we are strong and that some situations take time to completely unfold. Do not despair dear heart. Be brave warrior, your battle is not yet lost. Love and light surround you, love and light surround you. Oh my dear, love and light surround you far more than you will ever know!
Rhodonite is an excellent touchstone for anyone who sends love where it is needed most.
