Family Conflicts And The Healing Attributes Of Crystals
Using the healing attributes of crystals, a family or group with any conflict can begin to positively communicate and heal the known and unknown issues separating them from happiness.
Certain crystals and shapes have attributes or meanings. The attributes are the effects that these crystals have on us or the environment. They have been given these meanings through tradition and ancient wisdom passed down through the generations and are still being assigned as new undiscovered crystals and stones are being found. This data has been collected through generations of experience, and we now have the ability to learn about them through helpful authors like, Judy Hall, who authored the book, The Crystal Bible.
Here, I will highlight a few crystals and crystal shapes that have the attributes to assist in healing family conflicts as well as a couple guided meditations to heal and restore your family. These same crystals may also help workgroups and coworkers at the workplace who are having inter-office conflicts.

Citrine is said to carry the power of the sun, as it is full of joy and happiness. Negativity has no place near this stone. If you want to smooth out the wrinkles and speak positively again, citrine can be the light that shows the way.
Place a citrine crystal in the room where the conflict normally occurs, or bring one with you to the next family meeting. You may all use citrine crystals decoratively in your home to transmute negative energy. You may also choose to wear citrine as a necklace or bracelet.

Guided Meditation for Family Healing
Guide To Prayer Meditation And Crystal Healing
Begin your healing with prayer and a good spiritual energy clearing using white sage. Meditation is a method of prayer in action, or in some cases, non-action or allowing . . . allowing your healing to begin. Crystals can lend you their healing wisdom and energy to guide you on this path. The mediation is you allowing them to do that, inviting them to help. The crystals won't do the work on their own, the real effort comes from within you. You hold the power to your healing and the crystals are there to remind you of that.
If you ever get to a point where you are not sure how you are doing, ask. Ask yourself, "How do I feel today?" Yes, it can be that simple. Sometimes, just asking yourself those simple questions can reveal much of the path and where to go next.
