Rose Quartz: A Stone of the Heart

liz lamoreux

Rose quartz is one of my favorite stones. It's my go-to when my heart needs support, when I need to connect with a love that is greater than me.

Rose quartz is actually often called the stone of the heart. It is usually very pale pink in color but can be a brighter pink and sometimes appear cloudy and white. It's a stone to help you connect to deep compassion for others and yourself. Connecting to that compassion is so important as you're navigating how to respond to challenges in your daily life and in the world. 

Rose quartz is said to invite love into your life, so if you're needing more love, in all it's many forms, this just might be the perfect stone for you.

But it isn't just about romantic love. It is also the stone I recommend when someone needs a big dose of self-compassion and self-love.

I sometimes sleep with it under my pillow and often wear it around my neck over the heart chakra. Throughout the day, I can reach up and hold it in my hand and take a few moments to breathe and invite in love and compassion to support me.

I also keep this stone on my studio altar because I really believe the more love surrounding me while I create, the better. It is another good one to carry in your pocket and rub like a worry stone

Rose quartz continues to be a stone I love offering here in the shop. From gemstones to put on your altar (these large and small hearts, pillars, and these gorgeous double points are available) to several necklace designs (love love love intention necklace, inhale love. exhale peace. necklace, and the compassion and love necklace), this is a stone that can support you each day as you create space for love, compassion, and connection to your heart.

As you work with rose quartz, spend time holding the stone in your hand and connecting with the feeling of love and compassion. Imagine infusing your stone with that intention. To really deeply connect with your stone and the intention you most need from it, practice holding it, breathing, and letting this intention settle within and around you.

If you'd like me to create a gemstone bundle for you with rose quartz and its meaning as the main intention with other stones that will support that intention, you can order a special custom gemstone bundle and then in the notes, just let me know that you're drawn to rose quartz and anything else you think I should know.

Here's to more love and compassion in your life, dear one.

Yes. Yes. Yes.

Blessings,

Liz

5 Mother's Day Gift Ideas

liz lamoreux

Here are a few of our favorite gift ideas for moms and those who are like a mom to you:

Initial Necklaces

Sweet initial necklaces, so she can hold everyone close to her heart. Find these initial necklaces and other customizable necklaces in the Custom Mantra section or click on the photos above.

Tell her in words

Make Mom something really personal in the Custom Mantra section. These are a few of our favorites: the silver heart locket, rooted in love square necklace, little circles necklace (perfect for names!) and the daily reminder key chain

All the hearts

Hearts become a symbol of the love you share between you and remind your mom that you're always connected. You can find all the hearts in the For Your Altar and Home section of the shop and the customizable pewter heart talisman (center photo) right here.

Help her create stillness

The Inhale Love. Exhale Peace. Necklace and the Deep Inhale :: Kyanite Necklace give her permission to pause and just breathe when she needs to. The Intentions Collection is full of necklaces and earrings to bring more intention to daily life.

The Five Deep Breaths Collection invites her to stop and take five deep breaths with intention.

A secret message (that's maybe not so secret)

Because even Mom needs a cheerleader sometimes. The secret message bracelet is stamped so that the message lays against the skin where no one else can see. Customize this bracelet with your own heartfelt message for Mom.

My Soul Mantra of the Year Package

liz lamoreux

I'm so excited to share the new My Soul Mantra of the Year package with you. I've gathered up some of my favorite items and practices into this bundle (you save 15% when you buy everything together).

The “My Soul Mantra” package is your invitation to choose a Soul Mantra for yourself that will be an intention that can anchor you as you build the bridge each day between daily life and the longings inside you. You might have a word of the year or intention you're going to focus on, a quote that has deep meaning for you, or maybe a phrase that has been a beautiful focus for you.

The package is a curated box of goodies to help you keep your word, intention, or even quote close to you. It's about trusting your intuition, listening to what you need, and giving yourself permission to practice your intention as you hold the beauty and the grit each day. 

The My Soul Mantra package includes:

  • A pewter pocket talisman hand stamped with your word or phrase. 
  • A beautiful Permission Slip to remind you that you can set down perfection and just be you as you choose how you live your mantra into reality each day. I’m so happy to be collaborating with artist Lori Portka on this special print! I wrote the words and she worked her magic! There are blanks for you to finish it with your own name and practice. 
  • Trust Yourself, an incredible oil from one of my favorite makers: Anna Wingfield of Napa Valley au Naturel. This offering invites you to begin a daily ritual of writing your practice on your body with the oil to imprint it on your skin. 
  • The “Each Day I Choose” print designed by my magical assistant Bonnie Albers. This is one of my favorite mantras that I say to myself daily. My hope is that this print will be a source of support and reminder of love for you as you think about all the other souls making these choices each day too. 
  • A hand-carved soapstone heart from Kenya from an inspiring fair-trade source right here in the Pacific Northwest. I’ve been giving hearts like these to my retreat participants for years to remind us of the love and openness that connects us, and I’m so happy to be able to offer them.  

You can also add three optional upgrades to your My Soul Mantra Package:

  • Upgrade 1The My Soul Mantra Necklace, customized with your practice + two gemstones to support your intention. 
  • Upgrade 2: The Intention Gemstone Bundle, customized for you by me. You will share some words about your practice and the support you most need. I will hold your words close as I sit in meditation and then I will choose 3-6 stones that will support you. I will bless the stones and clean them with sage. I will also handwrite you a love note just for you that explains the stones and add in a couple other surprises.
  • Upgrade 3: The My Soul Mantra Necklace + the Intention Gemstone Bundle.

My hope is that this package helps you deeply connect with practices and reminders that will support you as you live your intention each day.

Big big love,

Liz

12 Gift Ideas for the Wise Women in Your Life

liz lamoreux

You still have plenty of time to get a thoughtful and love-filled gift for your mom, best friend, sister, and the other nurturing souls in your life.

I'm one who believes that the intention behind the gift is part of the gift itself, so with that in mind, here are some gift ideas for you - some from Soul Mantras, some that would be perfect last-minute gifts, and some DIY ideas.

1. secret message locket

A little locket to hold a short secret message to hold close, these can be customized with a word or two. I like to think of these lockets like a whispered wish, prayer, or blessing that only the wearer knows about. You can also put a photo or secret note inside.

2. Five Deep Breaths Peace Bracelet

This amethyst bracelet is inspired by the five deep breaths practice, which invites you to pause and time five deep breaths with intention. It comes with a little card explaining the practice. Amethyst is a stone of peace and comfort.

3. Your Time

Your time is a beautiful thing to give a loved one, perhaps the best gift of all. Ideas: Tickets to a movie or show, a weekend trip together, a gift card for a restaurant or shop that you two like to go to, or even a note that explains you want to spend more time together and share a list of ideas and let them know you’ll be bugging them to connect more.

4. Hearts

Over the years, hearts have become a customer favorite. They are such a sweet gift that reminds the recipient that they are loved. All our hearts come with a little note sharing some ideas about how to use them. We have several kinds; the ones pictured are fluorite.

5. Photos 

We take more photos that ever before, but they live on our devices. A photo book or even a simple stack of favorite photos and an easel they can be displayed on is an awesome and simple idea. I love using the Instax Share and Canon Selphy to quickly print from my phone.

6. I Choose Necklace

A necklace to remind us that each day we choose what we want to invite into our lives and what we want to put into the world. It includes: rose quartz to invite in self-compassion and love, citrine to invite in joy and abundance, and iolite to invite in the muses, help attain visions, and support in difficult times.

7. In This Moment Field Journal and Photo Album

This journal leads you through the mindful exercise of taking a photo each day and noticing the beauty in your everyday world. You write a few lines about each photo as you paste it into your journal. This is also a beautiful exercise to do together.

8. Something Handmade

People love receiving gifts you make by hand. And you don’t have to spend hours to create something thoughtful and beautiful. So many fun DIYs are available online. This wooden bead necklace is my daughter’s and my current go-to gift to make. So much fun! I have an easy tutorial over on my personal site. I’ve also saved several DIYs to my “things I’d like to make” Pinterest board.

9. You Are... Pocket Talisman Set

The pocket talismans are little reminders that the gift recipient can slip in their pocket, put on their desk or other spot where they will see them often, or even use as part of a meditation practice. You choose the three phrases you want. Some favorites: you are enough, you are brave, you are amazing, you are loved. They come with a card that explains how to use them.

10. A Book (or two)

On the surface, a book can seem like it is the default gift when you don't know what else to give. But I deeply disagree. Books become treasured companions we carry with us that can literally change our lives. When you spend time looking for just the right book and include a note explaining why you're giving it, it becomes a deeply thoughtful gift. 

11. Personalized Jewelry

This time of year, we create quite a few necklaces and keychains with kids and grandkids names. We have lots of customizable options for giving. You can choose one of our favorite phrases or customize with your own words or phrases. 

johnny cash

12. Music

Gather up tunes that make up the soundtrack of your childhood or the fun you've had together over the years and help them take a trip down memory lane with a "mixed tape." A record player with some favorite vinyl records is also a fun gift (my husband got me one for our anniversary and I’m basically recreating my parents’ record collection - including holiday albums).

What are your other go-to thoughtful gifts this time of year. Share in the comments so we can all learn from one another.

Big love,

Liz

you have this day

liz lamoreux

I've been thinking about how we have this day, right here, right now, and we choose how we will move through this day.

We have this day.

This day that will unfold in ways we cannot anticipate. Our reaction to what happens around us is what we control. What we will say, how we will stay open, how we will let others in.

You have this day.

This day to choose love, to dance, to let yourself grieve, to stand tall and tell your story, to ask for a hug, to give one, to take a deep breath and say "yes," to speak gratitude, to start over, to let it go, to be a witness, to be open to all that is to come.

This day to live, really really live, in your life.

I stamped these words into a talisman a few weeks ago and have been tucking it in my back pocket every day. As I move through this time in my life, I want to keep this reminder close. It's another way to say, "each day I choose," another way to remember I get this one life as me.

I thought you might want this reminder too, so I've put it in the shop right here.

rainbow fluorite meditation

liz lamoreux

If you've explored the Soul Mantras site, you've probably noticed that I'm a bit obsessed with using rainbow fluorite in my jewelry and as a tool for meditation. Personally, I like to use fluorite to connect with my intuition. Here's one way I do it.

I sit down in my meditation space (you can do this anywhere - but be sure you have some quiet space so you won't be interrupted). Holding the fluorite in my hand, I close my eyes. I begin to notice my breath until I start to find a rhythm where my attention is focused on each inhalation and exhalation.

Then I begin to focus on the fluorite. Feeling it in my hand. Noticing the texture, warmth or coolness, and any other characteristics. When I'm ready, I take a deep breath and imagine opening the space right at my sixth chakra - the space between your eyebrows.

When I find that space, I imagine all that the fluorite has to teach me, especially about my intuition, blooming within that space. (You can even bring the fluorite to that space on your body.) I breathe and notice.

This connection to intuition is why I use fluorite in the five deep breaths collection (I've been wearing this new design often). And why I keep fluorite on my personal altar, in the studio, and in my office where I write. 

The gorgeous rainbow fluorite pillars shown above are such a special find! I have just a handful, and they're all so different that I've listed them individually. These pillars have beautiful shades of green, blue, and purple. You could set it up near a window so you could see the sun shine through it.

You can find all the rainbow fluorite pillars in the for your altar and home section of the shop.

heart.full locket

liz lamoreux

 

A dear sweet soul let me know that when she wears her heart.full locket, she hands out the little paper hearts to people who need to remember they are loved.

She sent me this quote from President Obama (said at the memorial service for the police officers in Dallas), "That's what we must pray for, each of us: A new heart. Not a heart of stone, but a heart open to the fears and hopes and challenges of our fellow citizens."

Yes. Yes. Yes.

 
 

As part of the Heart.Full Collection, 10% of the profits from this necklace will be donated to Mary Bridge Children's Hospital in our hometown of Tacoma, WA. My daughter spent time there as a baby before having open-heart surgery in Seattle, and we are forever grateful for the kindness shown to us there. (And I'm happy to report she's 6 and doing great! And she even helps out in the studio by punching out these little hearts for the locket.)

 

more heart stones in the shop

liz lamoreux

Hearts are one of my favorite visual reminders to have in my home and on my altar because they keep me deeply connected to love and one of the mantras that I hold closest to me: Love Wins.

I also hold these hearts when I meditate or when I just want to focus on sending love to a particular person or group of people in my life. They help me stay grounded and connect to that feeling of love inside me.

This summer, Bonnie and I went to a gem show in Portland, and I found a few more gorgeous hearts to add to the shop. There are large lapis, rose quartz, and fluorite hearts. And some new smaller hearts that are snowflake obsidian. We've also added the rose quartz and amethyst little hearts that are both customer favorites.

You can find them along with other items for your home, altar, and meditation practice right here.

new fluorite intuition necklace

liz lamoreux

This new Five Deep Breaths fluorite necklace is the one I'm wearing almost daily around here. So sweet and subtle. Fluorite helps you connect with your intuition, which is a very good thing.

The five stones represent each of the breaths in the Five Deep Breaths practice. This practice invites you to pause and take five deep breaths with intention. Here's one way to work with this practice:

Inhale and relax your shoulders, then exhale.

Inhale, notice how your breath moves in your body, then exhale.

Inhale, try to let go of anything pulling on you, then exhale.

Inhale, feel the space you create inside you, then exhale.

Inhale, let your mind rest in this space, then exhale.

Notice how you feel at the end of the practice.

Each necklace will be unique with colors ranging from purple to green to blue to white. You can find them in the shop right here.
