Love vs. Desire
Love and desire exist with the same sphere; however, just like your needs and your wants, there are subtle differences between the two that have a profound impact on your life.
Psychiatrist and spiritual researcher David Hawkins’ research into the vibrational frequency of emotion has found that love is one of the most powerful emotions, with a vibration of 500. Only joy, peace, and enlightenment vibrate at higher frequencies than love.
Desire’s frequency is 125, which is a similar vibration to anger and fear. That doesn’t mean that desire is bad; it’s a part of life, just like anger and fear. Desire is the basis for manifestation and, for most people, a key component of romantic love.
However, love is the higher emotion, and we should strive to fill our lives with all of the different types of love: romantic love, familial love, platonic love, self-love, communal love, and universal love.
Remember the Universal Law of Love: “Love evolves through the planes of being, moving from personal desire to holy union with the source.”
When you work with crystals, you exercise all forms of love, and you bring yourself closer to the divine in the process.
Romantic Love: Emerald
Often known as the “Stone of Successful Love,” Emerald is an excellent ally for cultivating romantic love. Emerald goes beyond initial attraction to open the Heart Chakra and promote stability. It nurtures relationships by encouraging patience, communication, and harmony.
Familial Love: Pink Opal
Pink Opal is a conduit for the divine feminine, and it has long been a traditional gift for mothers. This crystal brings families (and found families) together with its gentle, loving energy. If you have a difficult history with your relatives, Pink Opal will help you work through the trauma and reveal the right path forward. It also cleanses negativity from your family relationships.
Platonic Love: Green Aventurine
Platonic love refers to the love between friends. Friendships are so important, but they rarely get the spotlight that they deserve. Green Aventurine strengthens friendships by balancing your mental, emotional, and physical bodies so that you can feel free to open up to your friends. This crystal also promotes trust, creativity, and leadership.
Self-Love: Pink Calcite
Self-love is one of the most crucial and often overlooked forms of love. Calcite is a powerful energy amplifier, and in its pink variety, it magnifies your sense of self-worth. Pink, or Mango Calcite, removes anything that is clouding your Heart Chakra so that you can forgive yourself and release your own self-imposed limits.
Communal Love: Danburite
One of the most powerful sources of altruism, Danburite helps you express divine love through charity in your community. This crystal truly understands that it is better to give than to receive. Danburite encourages a profoundly loving, calm mindset that makes all of your interpersonal relationships better. With Danburite, you can make a positive impact on everyone around you.
Universal Love: Celestite
Universal love is the final step on your journey to explore love in all of its forms. Celestite resonates strongly with the spiritual realm, and it works with your Crown Chakra to channel energy from the source. Celestite’s powerful vibrations cleanse your heart, bringing you into perfect alignment with the universe and attracting love in all of its forms.
Love is a multi-faceted, confusing, and beautiful emotion. Work with these crystals to find your highest, most loving self in all aspects of your life—and get closer to enlightenment.
Electromagnetic Fields: Strong Crystals to Save the Day
Electromagnetic fields are all around you. You interact with them every day without thinking.
Did you know that the heart is the strongest generator of electromagnetic energy? Its electromagnetic field is much larger and stronger than even the brain’s by 5,000 times magnetically and 100,000 times electrically.
The heart’s electromagnetic field makes a double torus shape, arcing out from the heart and back in. Energy flows through the torus in all directions, and the torus’ energy is constantly refreshing itself.
Your heart is your most powerful energy center, and when it is blocked or out of alignment, you will certainly feel it.
To maintain the flow of electromagnetic energy through your heart, you will need a high frequency crystal. Here are a few of our favorite options:
Malachite is a powerful Heart Chakra stone. As a stone of transformation, it cleanses your heart, freeing you from blockages that have built up over time from toxic energy or pent-up trauma. Malachite also carries a unique, otherworldly energy—a holdover from its prior life as a meteorite— that expands your consciousness.
Green Aventurine brings your mental, emotional, and physical bodies into alignment, and it also protects your heart center from electromagnetic smog. This crystal allows you to open your heart to love and trust. When you achieve this mindset, Green Aventurine enhances creativity, reinforces leadership qualities, and attracts abundance.
The embodiment of universal love, Danburite connects your Crown and Heart Chakras. Think of its energy as a white light, cleansing and healing your heart space with divine compassion. Danburite enhances interpersonal relationships and helps you make choices that serve the highest good.
Also known as Mango Calcite or the Metaphysician’s Stone, this crystal is a powerful energy amplifier and purifier. Pink Calcite removes stagnant energy from your Heart Chakra, especially build ups caused by fear and anxiety. It encourages forgiveness based on acceptance and a profound sense of self-worth.
Chrysocolla works with your heart to increase your capacity to love. It links the Heart and Throat Chakras so that you can express and release suppressed grief, fear, and sadness. This crystal is all about letting go and surrendering to divine love.
When you strengthen your heart’s electromagnetic field, you strengthen your most powerful energy center, supercharging your soul, mind, and body!
The Law of Mirroring: How Crystals Can Help
“Abundance” and “manifestation” are great buzzwords, but what do they actually mean?
Manifesting abundance is a key part of a universal law, the Law of Mirroring. Thanks to the popularity of The Secret in the early 2000s, this principle is more commonly known as the Law of Attraction.
What is the Law of Mirroring?
Universal laws govern both the spiritual and earthly planes, and they are always in effect, whether we are aware of them or not. When we live in a way that aligns with universal laws, we are able to create exactly what we need. This process is called manifestation.
The Law of Mirroring allows us to attract things, events, and people into our lives. It states that our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions produce energies which, in turn, attract like energies. Positive energies attract other positive energies, and, conversely, negative energies attract other negative energies.
The Law of Mirroring is closely tied to other spiritual concepts, such as Karma and the Wiccan Rede, which asserts that whatever you put out into the universe comes back to you threefold.
The Law of Mirroring is not about shaming you for having negative emotions; everyone gets angry and sad sometimes. It is about coping with that negativity through a regular positivity practice and the cultivation of a constructive, loving mindset.
When you create in conjunction with universal energies, anything is possible.
Crystal Grids: The Basics
Crystal grids are one of the most powerful tools for invoking the Law of Mirroring. A crystal grid is a geometric pattern of energetically aligned stones, charged by intention in a sacred space, for the purpose of manifesting a particular object.
There are many different ways to build a crystal grid, and you can take advantage of sacred geometry to refine your goal, but all crystal grids have the same core properties:
- The Keystone or Focus Stone: one crystal in the middle of the grid, which provides the focus for the manifestation
- Way Stones or Anchor Stones: the inner ring of crystals, closest to the keystone, which provide an energetic pathway
- Desire Stones or Perimeter Stones: the outer ring of crystals, which close the sacred space, similar to the way some witches will cast a circle for spellwork
As you are building your crystal grid, be sure to charge each individual stone and the full grid with your specific intention.
Crystals to Attract Specific Things through the Law of Mirroring
Each crystal in a crystal grid should be very carefully chosen. Here are some of our favorite stones attuned to particular goals:
Rose Quartz for Love
Rose Quartz is the ultimate love stone, attracting both romantic relationships and profound self-love.
If you are manifesting a partner, consider adding Emerald for domestic bliss and Ruby for passion.
If you want to manifest self-love, use Amethyst for divine guidance and Fuchsite for cleansing and confidence.
Pyrite for Money
Pyrite’s shine belies its power as a money manifestation tool. Consider combining Pyrite with Hematite for grounding and Tiger’s Eye for motivation.
Jade for Career Advancement
Jade combines luck, prosperity, and heart health for a holistic manifestation that defines success in terms of fulfillment and stability instead of wealth.
A crystal grid with Jade at the focus might want to include Cinnabar for creativity and Howlite for clarity.
Citrine for Joy
Citrine is one of the most positive crystals out there. If you are struggling to find positivity in your life, it is the perfect choice.
Consider adding Garnet for energy and Onyx for emotional support to a Citrine crystal grid.
Clear Quartz for Long-Term Goals
As a powerful amplifier, Clear Quartz makes a wonderful addition to any crystal grid, but it is also a great keystone for larger goals. Clear Quartz’s strong vibrations raise your own so that you can align with universal energy more easily. It reveals the truth of any situation.
Combine a Clear Quartz focus stone with any crystals that relate closely to your specific goal.

From Personal Desire to Holy Union with Source
What do you want?
We all have different answers: a romantic partner, a car, a dream job…
But how do your wants affect others? Are you just envious of someone, or do you want something so badly that you don’t care who you hurt to get there?
When we work with universal energies to manifest, we are bringing our wants and needs together. The Law of Mirroring responds to our clearly voiced intentions, but the universe won’t deliver something that doesn’t serve the highest good.
Our spiritual growth depends on raises our consciousness to align with the universe’s energies. That sounds cosmically impossible, but the work actually starts in the most personal place: yourself.
Once you learn to love yourself, you can learn to love on a grander scale. Start by loving yourself and those around you as much as you can. Then, expand your love to your community, to humanity in general, to animals, and, finally to the Earth and the universe beyond it.
When we achieve this mindset of expansive, unconditional love, we realize the full possibility of Universal Law of Love: “Love evolves through planes of being, moving from personal desire to holy union with the source.”
It’s easy to say that we should strive to get closer to love; it’s a much more difficult task to actually achieve. Luckily, crystals have a naturally high vibration that helps us raise of own frequencies to align with universal energies.
There is a crystal for every step of journey from personal desire to holy union with the source. Begin with Rhodochrosite. This balancing stone heals your Heart Chakra, especially wounds caused by betrayal, and expands your conscious awareness so that you can be prepared for your spiritual journey.
Dioptase is a well of compassion, showing you how to forgive yourself and others. It is also a stone of letting go. Dioptase will help you release the toxic relationships, habits, and situations that you identified while working with Rhodochrosite.
As you move forward into a new phase, Emerald will help you deepen your interpersonal relationships with friends and family while drawing you closer to universal love. Emerald’s green color also reminds you of the Earth and all of the ways the planet nurtures you.
Now, it’s time for a check in with Chrysocolla. Reflect on how your journey has been going. Chrysocolla will help you surrender any of your remaining pain to the source and increase your capacity to love. It encourages you to go beyond the personal connections you made with Emerald to find compassion for all living beings.
Complete your ascension with Celestite. Celestite is an extremely high frequency crystal, vibrating with angelic energy. It is the physical embodiment of a pure, loving heart in alignment with the universe. As you strive to maintain your connection to the universe, Celestite’s healing properties will gently cleanse you and return you to the right path when you face difficulties.
Remember, love is a practice, something you work at every day. Let crystals help you get there.
Kunzite and the 4th Chakra
In his book The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote, “It is only with the heart that one can see rightly.” The heart is the center of everything—not just our lives, but our very being.
Your heart is your fourth chakra, and it lies in the center of the whole Chakra system. The Heart Chakra is the gateway between your physical needs, represented by the Root, Sacral, and Solar Plexus Chakras, and your spiritual needs: your Throat, Third Eye, and Crown Chakras.
If your Heart Chakra is clouded or out of alignment, it can destabilize your entire system and interrupt your energy flow, so it’s very important to take care of it. Your Heart Chakra is also critical to your emotional wellbeing and mental health; it radiates unconditional love for yourself, others, and the universe at large.
Many crystals resonate with the Heart Chakra’s loving energy, but there are fewer that can be used for Heart Chakra healing and purification. At My Dream Crystals, our number one pick for Heart Chakra maintenance is Kunzite.
Kunzite is a high-vibration crystal that raises your frequency. These “good vibrations” remove any blockages in your heart and balances your entire Chakra system.
When you work with Kunzite, you deepen your relationship with yourself. It channels divine wisdom down from the Crown Chakra into your heart, setting you at ease. Kunzite also resonates strongly with the Throat Chakra, and with this calm mindset, you will find it easier to express your emotions in a free, honest way.
Kunzite cuts through the chaos of everyday life, showing you how to find inner peace.
It acts like an ethereal shield to protect your aura. If you are experiencing a panic attack, simply reach for a chunk of Kunzite, and it will dissipate the negativity.
Like The Little Prince observed, without a clear, balanced heart, it is difficult to interact with the world in an enriching, enlightening way. Let Kunzite open your Heart Chakra and illuminate all of the love around you.
