For this you need a large green cloth to lie down on. Make sure it is of natural fibers, and place on the floor. Place as many green aventurines and tourmalines in a circle around the edges of the cloth. Lie down with your head to the north and place another aventurine in the center of your chest, and if you have them -four quartz crystals on the four corners with the points facing toward your body. Relax and envision your heart open and flowing.
#2 COUPLE’S ROSE QUARTZ CRYSTAL AND ROSE OIL MASSAGE
Light a candle together (a pink candle is great) and with intention about your feelings for each other. This is best done without clothes as you will use rose oil. Anoint your partner’s seven chakras with a small quantity of oil on your finger. Proceed slowly, with sensitivity from the Crown Chakra to the Root Chakra, then to the feet. Massage the heart chakra with rose oil in a circular, clockwise motion. You can use the rose quartz to place on the heart or as a pendulum. Finish with the feet and then swap roles.
