An Introduction to Crystal Grids

April 02, 2017

Crystal Grids are an incredibly powerful and beautiful way to manifest your dreams, goals and intentions. The power of a crystal grid comes from the combined energies of the crystals you use, how you lay them out and the intentions you set. Basically, a crystal grid is a special arrangement of crystals and stones, used with intention, to manifest a desired result. Keep in mind that the universe likes to provide us with what we need, not just what we want. So it's best to focus on manifesting a need vs a want, if you would like it to come to fruition. Common intentions that people use for crystal grids are for well being, abundance, healing and protection.

There are really no hard and     rules when it comes to crystal grids, it's best to use your own intuition and work with what you feel guided to do with the crystals. Some people like to do them on a cloth or piece of paper with sacred geometry on them, as they believe this increases the power of the grid. Others like to include pieces of nature, like leaves or flowers in their grid. Many people pick their stones based on the properties of the individual crystals that are aligned with what they would like to manifest. The possibilities are endless! Below is the most commonly used technique when doing a crystal grid, which may be helpful for beginners.

Step-by-step Guide to Creating a Crystal Grid

  1. The first step is deciding what your intentions are for the grid. You may like to write this down on a piece of paper and place it under the central stone in your grid. Try to be specific about what you would like and as mentioned before, try to stick with a need, rather than want if you can.

  2. Choose your crystals. You may do this keeping in mind the individual crystals properties and what your intentions are, but you can also work with whatever you have on hand. Most importantly, trust in your intuition and what you feel guided to use.

  3. It's important to cleanse your crystals and the space that you will be doing your crystal grid in. I like to do this by using a sage smudge stick. However, there are many ways you can cleanse your crystals. You could use sound, like crystal or Tibetan singing bowls. Moonlight is another option. You can simply place your crystals in the moonlight to cleanse them during the full moon. Other options include burying your crystals in the earth, putting them in sunlight, water, using Reiki or salt. Just be careful, as some crystals do not like water, like Selenite. This is why I prefer to stick with sage.

  4. Place the piece of paper you wrote your intentions down on in the centre of your space and while you do this, either within your mind or aloud, say what your intentions are. Take a moment to really slow down and connect with your own spirit and the energy of the universe while you do this. You may like to light a candle or play some relaxing music while you do this.

  5. Some people believe that its best to start from the outside and go in, or others prefer to start in the middle and work out. Doing whatever feels right for you, start placing your crystals down. Some people like to use sacred geometry to do this, and it gives them an easy guide as to where they can place their crystals.

  6. The final step is to activate your grid. I like to do this using a clear quartz point. This is kind of like an energetic "dot-to-dot", as you touch each crystal with your point, drawing an invisible line to connect them to one another. It's best to leave your crystal grid set up for a period of time, rather than put it away straight away. I like to leave mine for at least 48 hours, but do whatever works for you. Some people leave them up long term. They certainly make a beautiful addition to any space.

You can do a crystal grid whenever you feel the need. Personally, I like to do them during the New Moon and the Full Moon, as these are more powerful times energetically, for doing this kind of manifesting and intention work. It's also wonderful to meditate with your crystal grid when you are finished.

I have always loved crystals, but in recent years, after suffering quite badly with anxiety when I was diagnosed with melanoma, I turned to crystals to help me heal physically and emotionally. They have done wonders for me, so I have become really passionate about sharing the beauty, healing powers and life-enhancing energy of crystals with others. I have especially benefited from doing regular crystals grids.

We have many beautiful crystals on offer at Crystal Visions that can be used to make your own crystal grids. We also have crystal grid sets that you can purchase, to get you started.

Crystal spheres are powerful tools, emitting harmony and positivity. Historically, the sphere is a perfect shape and held sacred: all points are the same distance away from the centre, making it a pure expression of unity, integrity and completeness. The shape of crystal spheres allows the energy to radiate in all directions at once, making them a great choice for many intentions.
