Crystal Grids are a way of healing utilizing crystals, sacred geometry, and intention. They can bring healing energy towards any situation. Some grids are created for protection, while others are intended to increase love, bring in abundance, or to heal the body, mind, and spirit. A grid can be created for anything that you can think of. While the grid is active it sends healing vibrations out to where they are intended. No fancy materials are required. You can pick up all of the stones you need at the beach, by the river, in the woods, or in your yard. You'll need one larger stone for the center (the generator), six of similar size to be placed around the generator, and then six more of similar size to go around the circle you just laid.
The most important part of the grid is the intention you set. The intention tells the grid what your aim is for it, what you are looking to gain. Keep it simple! There is no need to get into a million and one details. That will only serve to confuse the situation. See if you can state it in a few simple words. Follow those words with plenty of heart felt emotion and images for how it will look and feel once your plan comes through.
I created a grid for Abundance; abundance in health, wealth, and love. I mostly used stones from the beach for my grid with a few from a crystal shop. Colors which represent abundance are gold and green so I chose a gold rock from the beach. I wrote the word Abundance across it to further infuse the abundance energies into it and then I decorated it with some green. I surrounded that stone with some Carnelian I bought at a crystal shop. Carnelian is a wonderful motivator so it will motivate me to do work towards these areas of my life. Carnelian is an earth elemental crystal which makes it physically healing and revitalizing as well. The stones in the outer circle are Quartz. Quartz is considered the Master Healer because it can be programmed to do anything that any other crystal or stone can do. Quartz it is the most readily available crystal, it makes up the majority of our Crystal Kingdom.
You may also choose to buy a few stones from the crystal shop to supplement your grid.Small crystals and stones run from about $3-$8 each. Following are some crystals and a few of their associated properties. Citrine is all about abundance, manifesting, and increasing courage. Black Onyx is protective, it absorbs sadness, and is great for grieving. Jade is for luck, love, and abundance. Smoky Quartz transmutes negative energies to positive ones, it's great for pain relief, and is grounding. Your best guide is your intuition so always go with what your gut tells you to do.
Why do people set grids atop sacred geometric shapes? When we see crystal grids we usually see them resting on grid clothes with sacred geometric shapes printed on them. Grid sheets are readily available on the web and you can print them for free, grid clothes are available online, or at a metaphysical shop. The stones are laid in sacred geometric patterns to increase the effect of the healing. Sacred Geometry is the language of the universe and by using specific shapes we are partially communicating what we wish to accomplish from the grid. In the Abundance Grid I used the Seed of Life which is the unit cell of the Flower of Life. I was thinking of Abundance as the unit cell of life on earth. We need to be ready to take everything in with an attitude of abundance. Circles simply put are all about creation. Squares represent the earth and protection. Triangles represents empowerment and amplification. Octagons are all about transformation.
The most important part of a grid is the intention. You need to have a clear plan for what you'd like to get from a grid and you also need to expect that you will get it. When you lay each stone set them down with intention. Begin with the center stone (generator), writing on that stones or placing a sheet of paper beneath it with your aim written out, can be a great way to begin. Next place a circle of stones around the generator, beginning at the top and moving clockwise. Place these with intent as well. Finally place your outer circle of stones beginning at the top and moving clockwise, again set these with intention.
Be sure to activate the grid. We do this by connecting all of the crystals and stones with light. Point to the generator stone with your forefinger. Think about the aim for the grid while holding your finger over the generator. Next move your finger around the perimeter of the grid in a circle three times. See all of the stones connecting with an imaginary line of light. Hold the intention for the grid, in your mind's eye, throughout the process.
Finally meditate with your grid each day. Sit by it and visualize your aim coming into fruition ,watch every detail. Feel the energy of the stones and the intention going out through the generator and into the universe. They are working together to bring you your desire. When the universe sends signs that the grid is working, acknowledge those signs during your meditation. Recognize that your health is becoming more abundant, for example, and expect more to come.
