Now that it’s clear Rose Quartz lends itself perfectly to put under your pillow, let’s take a closer look at what makes this stone so great to keep close while you’re dreaming. 

Sleeping With Rose Quartz Under Your Pillow 

Rose Quartz is known as the love stone, which makes it a perfect stone to keep close to you during sleeping for protection and peaceful energy.

It is the crystal to embody unconditional and true love which can help tremendously with developing a sense of self-love and acceptance.

Sleeping with a Rose Quartz crystal is also great for couples as it can help strengthen the relationship. 

When a Rose Quartz is chosen to keep close during the night, it’s important to make sure that all other crystals are out of the room.

In order for the Rose Quartz to be able to do its job, it’s absolutely necessary to remove other stones in order to prevent them from interfering with the energy of the Rose Quartz.

As Rose Quartz is a very sensitive stone, they easily take on surrounding energies which is exactly the opposite of the effect you’d want to achieve for a good night’s sleep. Before placing a Rose Quartz under your pillow, cleansing your crystal can be a great way to make sure it will give off its pure natural energy during the night.

When you decide to try out sleeping with a Rose Quartz crystal under your pillow, make sure to choose an appropriate size stone that won’t bother you during your sleep.

Needless to say for obvious reasons, it’s best to go for small (for example tumbled) rose quartz stones and not big chunky ones.

When you feel like the Rose Quartz stone is too forceful in energy when being placed under the pillow, you can choose to put it away a bit further on, for example, your bedside table or underneath your mattress or bed.

When you’re a highly sensitive person, the energy of a crystal can get a bit too much at times, but it’s up to you to personally find out and truly feel what energy feels right and beneficial to you.

Try to get in touch with your intuition to sense the right amount of energy you need.

Putting a Rose Quartz stone under your pillow (or close to you) while sleeping will help you wake up feeling more energized and loving in general.

You’ll very likely feel an increased sense of peacefulness and will be more aware of your environment in a positive manner. 

The Rose Quartz crystal doesn’t solely help attract love from people around you, but is also an exceptionally great stone for developing feelings of self confidence and self-worth.

This in turn will lay a great foundation for attracting love from others into your life.

Can Rose Quartz Help With Sleep? 

Rose Quartz can help you sleep better as it is a very soothing and relaxing crystal. By keeping a Rose Quartz close to your bed while sleeping, it can help improve your overall sleep quality as you’ll have a high probability of falling asleep faster and sleeping tighter. 

Rose Quartz is widely known for its ability to improve sleep and have soothing dreams.

When using a Rose Quartz crystal for better sleep and peaceful dreams, it is best advised to focus on what type of feelings you’d like the Rose Quartz to achieve before you actually go to sleep.

This will help your subconscious to vibrate this energy to cooperate with the Rose Quartz stone for achieving best effects.
