Crystal grids are used by different types of practitioners to focus energy with varying intentions. Each node of the grid is a gemstone which becomes empowered when aligned in harmony with other stones.
What are crystal grids used for? They can be used to channel abundance, healing, clarity, intuition, connection with the Divine, inspiration and more. Other objects can also be placed in the grid, such as herbs, flowers, fruits, metal, feathers, bones, etc.
Making a crystal grid is a creative exercise above all and you should always let your instinct and intuition be your guides. If the grid doesn’t look or feel good, then experiment by changing the patterns or start from scratch.
How to Make Crystal Grids
The best way to make a crystal grid is by following your intuition. Like with most Magic and spells, it’s important to set an intention to have a starting point. Research on the properties and uses of each stone and point the crystals in the direction you want the energy to follow.
Crystal Grid Tutorial
- Decide on an intention for your grid. Clearly state it by writing it on a piece of paper, or say it out loud.
- To activate the grid, place your crystals on it, tracing out the pattern from one stone to the next.
- Based on your intention, choose a crystal to act as centerpiece. Place your most powerful stone or the one with the properties and energies you want to channel.
- Generator stone: This stone will be the one that holds and reflects your intention. For example, a Rose quartz if your intention is love; a Black Tourmaline for protection, or a Tiger’s eye quartz for energy, and Gold for abundance.
- Transmitters: They make up the circuit and help carry the energy to or from the center of the grid. They could be quartz points.
- Resonators: These help move and amplify the vibrations. They could be magnetic stones such as Hematite, Lodestone or other magnetites.
- As you place each stone, visualize your intention becoming a reality. See in your mind how the nodes are going to connect.
- Visualize and see the pulsing energy of the grid as you meditate or pray. You can leave the crystal grid up for a while or take it apart as soon as you feel that the work is done.
Working with crystal grids is a way to direct energy inwards or outwards. Having decided on a centerpiece stone, you may point all the other stones outwards, creating a circuit for the energy to travel away from the grid and towards your sacred space or yourself.
You can also use a grid to charge an item with the energy of the grid. Place the object you want to charge (such as jewelry) in the center and point each stone inwards.
Making a crystal grid can be a powerful exercise for those learning or practicing energy work.
