“This world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence … a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related.”
—  Plato

Anima Mundi - The world soul (Greek: ψυχὴ κόσμου psuchè kósmou, Latin: anima mundi) is, according to several systems of thought, an intrinsic connection between all living things on the planet, which relates to our world in much the same way as the soul is connected to the human body.

Gaia Hypothesis - the theory, put forward by James Lovelock, that living matter on the earth collectively defines and regulates the material conditions necessary for the continuance of life. The planet, or rather the biosphere, is thus likened to a vast self-regulating organism.

Living Systems Theory - suggests the world is a inter-connected hierarchy of matter and energy. According to this view, nothing can really be understood on its own; everything is part of a system (a set of inter-relating, interacting units).

Corresponding with these principles, a worldwide grid of rose quartz crystals, called The Rose Grid, has been created by people gifting, spreading, and holding intention with rose quartz throughout every continent over many decades. This collective prayer circle is one among many crystal matrices created the world over, offering support, compassion, and an opportunity for deeper healing and active participation amidst the urgent challenges facing humanity at this powerful time of transformation on Earth.

When we gift a crystal to another person, or simply return it to the Earth from which it came, a unique and beautiful thing happens. There’s a softening of the space between us, a layer of separation peels away, and a wave of love opens our hearts to a yet deeper connection with all living things.

“Driven by the force of love, the fragments of the world seek each other that the world may come into being.” ~ Teilhard de Chardin

Please join us in this collaborative mission, and witness first hand the joy of spreading and gifting rose quartz crystals; the healing magic of holding one close when in need of support or offering a prayer; and the power of unifying with a shared intention - for the healing of the planet, and the awakening of the people.

Why Rose Quartz?

Crystals and stones, as well as bones, hold specific piezoelectric frequencies within which information is contained, and through which energy is exchanged. Rose Quartz crystal connects with the heart and relates to compassion, empathy, forgiveness, nurturing and loving kindness. We can use these unique stones to connect with the Rose Grid and transmit our personal prayers and intentions through Earth's natural crystal matrix.

How do I participate with The Rose Grid?

Whether spreading rose quartz anywhere you feel compelled, gifting a crystal to friends and strangers alike, or holding one when you meditate or pray, there are many ways you can participate. As chaos, conflict and climate change continues to accelerate on Earth, we can be in active service to all life by interacting with and joining in the co-creation of The Rose Grid. In the spirit of inclusiveness, any stone and any crystal can be used to participate with the Rose Grid.
