A crystal grid is a geometric pattern of energetically aligned crystals charged by intention set in a sacred space for the purpose of manifesting a particular outcome.
Crystal grids can be placed in a particular pattern within a space, around a person, animal or photograph. Crystal grids raise the vibrations of the environment and the people that inhabit it, and focus healing energies in a way that is far more powerful than working with separate crystals.
There are no 'rules' when it comes to deciding on what geometric pattern your grid should be, be guided by your intuition and utilise sacred geometry as a reference for powerful layouts. Numerology is also useful when gridding, certain numbers emit particular energy. The other important thing regarding placement is to attract energy, crystals should be placed with their apex facing into the room, whereas to remove energy, crystals should be placed with their apex facing outward.
The basics of Crystal Gridding
- Decide on your purpose for the grid. Your clear intention is a key element in empowering the crystals energy. Your intention is what you will use to charge the crystals.
- Choose the crystals via intuition, intellect (crystal reference book) or a combination of both.
- Prepare your chosen crystals, that is, cleanse and program the crystals you will use in the grid. Your crystals should be programmed with by sending your intention for the grid to them.
- Write your intention on a piece of paper (or on the back of a photo that depicts your goal). You can place this piece of paper within the grid, perhaps under the Master Crystal.
- Find a safe location to create your grid where it will not be disturbed. Cleanse this space. Some cleansing methods include burning sage, placing a crystal cluster in the room, or bowls of sea salt.
- Place your crystal layout in a geometric pattern.
- Charge the Master Crystal and place it on the layout.
- You will then need to activate the grid to link the crystals energetically. Using a cleansed and programmed wand or generator point it at one of the crystals and start drawing a connecting energy line between the crystals while affirming a statement of your choosing, something like: "I charge this grid with abundant energy and blessings".
- Then activate the entire grid using your wand or generator. Start from one of the outer crystals and draw a line to the center crystal and then back out to the next outer crystal or stone. Do this all the way around the grid.
- Relax and center yourself. Visualise your goal having already been achieved with a calm mind and positive intention.
- Say a prayer of gratitude.
- You may choose to mediate with your grid daily.
- The grid may remain in place as long as you deem necessary.
- Remember to stay in tune with your crystals as they will require cleansing and may periodically need to be moved in order to maintain the energy flow.
I hope that you enjoy creating some Crystal Grids at home soon.
