See also Rhodochrosite. The difference between these two remedies, to me, seems to lie in the type of trauma that affected or closed off the heart and/or Heart Chakra. The healing aspect of the two essences are slightly, but significantly different. I have always believed that the environment of an herb and the conditions in which it thrives—or the situations which it must survive in- affect the healing properties of that plant. Perhaps the same is true of stones and gems. Rhodochrosite is considered a wonderful healer on all levels.
PHYSICAL ASPECTS: Healing and balance in the pancreas and spleen which are the focus of the 4th Chakra. The pancreas, of course, is involved in blood sugar levels. Problems in the spleen show up, surprisingly, as discomfort or pain behind the left ribs or as pain in the left clavicle and shoulder blade. It can also cause anemia, fatigue, a tendency to easy bleeding, and susceptibility to frequent infections. Balance in the energy of the spleen may alleviate these symptoms.
MENTAL/EMOTIONAL ASPECTS: When the pancreas struggles, especially if the collapse is sudden, the emotional issue is often tied to feelings that the sweetness has gone out of life. The reasons for the lack of enjoyment in living may have a multitude of different causes depending on situations occurring at that time, as well as the person’s ability to respond to and find workable solutions to them. The Montana Rhodochrosite focuses on a return, after traumatic experiences in childhood or even later in life, to a child-like enthusiasm that welcomes and is even excited by change, new experiences, new ideas, and the possibility of new directions in life. When change calls to you or falls into your life, Rhodochrosite can help you open your arms and embrace it.
INDICATION OF NEED: Sudden loss, or betrayal, of a partner or treasured loved one. Feeling unsafe, emotionally. A lack of trust in those who should be loving and nurturing to us. Physical symptoms of troubles with the pancreas or the spleen.
