CRYSTALS FOR FAMILY...
If you ask anyone to name the most important things to them, it is almost a guarantee that family will be mentioned. Family life is very important. Whether you are a teenage still in your primary family or you have grown up and started your own family, family support, cohesion, closeness, and love are all important. Did you know you can actually make your family unit stronger by just adding some crystals to your home?
For centuries, both women and men have used gemstones and crystals to attract their love partners as they have magic properties that break through personal barriers to love and help to attune oneself to a higher love vibration.
The most romantic of the gemstones, Rose quartz brings unconditional love and peace. Anyone looking to attract love will benefit from a sense of calm and harmony it brings and it has a unique ability to release negativity and heartache.
Rose quartz is also the stone of forgiveness, humility and patience. It teaches us to open our hearts and to be tender, peaceful and gentle. This is a fairly inexpensive stone and can be worn as a bracelet or a necklace.
Even if you have lost your love, it will help heal old wounds and comfort you with self-worth.
This one has a long history as a stone of romance. Hindus believe it is composed from actual moonbeams. Like rose quartz, moonstone is not an expensive stone. It is known to attract love and affection and when placed under the pillow at night it supports peaceful sleep.
This stone is a boon in escalating your love spectrum of life as it has the power to stir up passion and allow lovers to peep into their future fortunes (good or bad). Moonstone can also aid in soothing anxiety, stress and augments, ones innate sensitivity.
This purple-toned beauty radiates an overwhelming sense of peace and serenity. Amethyst can help melt away the stresses of the family which may be adding to the house’s tense energy. Place it anywhere you’d like to relax the vibrations, such as the front entrance of a house, or place as home décor on shelves.
Turning to bright-coloured stones to spark happiness in place of negativity, we have Citrine. Said to carry the power of the sun, it’s a powerful stone worth a mention when discussing gemstones for family members. This bright crystal is filled with joy and happy energy, helping wrinkle out any tough problems within a family unit. It’s one of the best stone to give as gifts for two siblings who could use some unity between them or a wonderful jewellery piece for that special mother who could use a reminder that she is worthy of joy (because she spends too much time giving away joy to others!). Buy Citrine for yourself and bring it to family meetings to ensure a peaceful event, because we all know the holidays can sometimes be tough!
Black Tourmaline :
Isn’t there always a family member who seems perpetually stressed out? Maybe it’s your brother or father who works too hard or your sister with too much on her plate. This person could use the protective energy of Black Tourmaline.
Black Tourmaline is one of the most powerful protection crystals. It shields the wearer from negative energy and replaces it with only positive vibes. It’s also a protector for the bad vibrations emitted from technology, so it can make a great gift for that family member who plays too many video games, is always on his phone, or works at the computer too much. In a deep black colour, Black Tourmaline is the perfect gift for men.
How to use crystals ?
1. Certain crystals can bring us together and give us a sense of community and humanity. They are quite powerful and give off very positive and joyful feelings. One in the right area of your living room can bring a sense of closeness to each member of the family that makes family time even more special.
2. The easiest way to get crystal energy is to wear the crystal as a pendant near your heart, for at least 21 days for the energy to work.
3. Orange Coloured Crystals Bring You Joy ,Friendship, Pleasure, and Family Togetherness. The strength of the red rays joined with the powerful fire of the gold rays give orange crystals the power to combine, integrate, and unite. Darker shades of orange deepen the sense of belonging and home. If you are lucky enough to find a powerful deep orange stone, use it as a home stone by placing it centrally in your house to ensure the hospitality of home and hearth. To keep a family happy together, a team working well, or a congregation united, a dark orange crystal is perfect. Some of the uses of orange crystals include focusing our energy to overcome distrust, timidity, or shyness. These anti-social behaviours make friendships suffer. Use an orange crystal when you want to focus your energy on developing outgoing, caring, and friendly behaviours.
