An emotional balancer that nurtures love and encourages the brotherhood of humanity, Rhodonite grounds energy, balances yin-yang, and aids in achieving one's highest potential. This stone has a strong resonance with forgiveness, assisting in reconciliation, and is beneficial in emotional self-destruction and codependency. In past-life healing, it deals with betrayal and abandonment, clearing away emotional wounds and scars from the past -- whenever that might be -- and bringing up painful emotions for transmutation. Promoting unselfish self-love and forgiveness, Rhodonite helps in taking back projections that blame a partner for what is really inside oneself. Rhodonite turns back insults and prevents retaliation. It recognizes that revenge is self-destructive and assists in remaining calm in dangerous or upsetting situations.
