What is a Crystal Grid?
Crystal grids are arrangements of crystals in various patterns and designs. They are usually temporary, although you can create a grid that lasts by affixing your crystals to a background with a suitable adhesive if you want to keep it for any length of time.
You can find templates for crystal grids on the internet, with instructions as to how to make one and the best crystals to use, depending on your needs. However, I think it is far more fun, and the end product is far more effective if you use your imagination and intuition to create a unique grid.
What are the Benefits of Creating a Crystal Grid?
Crystal grids are used for healing and for manifesting your dreams and desires. The whole process is beneficial for your health and well-being from start to finish. Firstly, you get to choose your crystals and perhaps purchase or source some new ones, which is always exciting. Secondly, you spend time researching the properties of crystals and choose those that resonate most strongly with your intention or need. Thirdly, you use your imagination and creativity to create patterns that appeal to you, which is as satisfying as “coloring-in” and also as relaxing!
Healing grids often contain specific crystals that are known to help with physical, emotional, or mental dis-ease and other unwanted conditions. Grids for manifesting your dreams and d desires may contain different crystals depending on your goal. Whatever form your grid takes and whichever crystals you decide to include, the benefits of creating and maintaining a crystal are manifold.
Once you have created your grid, place it in your sacred space or on your altar and meditate daily on its beauty and shape. Take the time to “tune in” to the crystals' vibrations and consider your feelings and thoughts as you look at your crystal creation.
Spending just ten minutes each day in quiet contemplation with your crystal grid brings peace, serenity, and tranquility to mind and body. The grid serves to remind you to slow down, nurture yourself, and focus on the important things in your life. Meditating quietly with your crystal grid can also lift your spirits, ease tension, and promote a positive outlook.
How Do I Start?
If you have no spare cash to buy new crystals, do not despair! Look closely at the stones you already possess and include any gemstone jewelry you may have.
If you are not familiar with the properties of your crystals, spend some time doing a little research. The crystal you really need in your collection is Clear Quartz. This stone is the most powerful crystal on the planet and works as an energy amplifier, transmitter, and transformer. It holds all the colors of the spectrum and can be used to heal any condition.
Crystal points are always useful when creating a grid. For example, points of Black Tourmaline, pointing away from the center of the grid, will disperse negative energies, while points of Clear Quartz can be used to amplify positive energies and direct them inwards.
Stones like Citrine and Green Aventurine can be placed around your central crystal to attract abundances, and pink or green crystals, such as Rose Quartz, Peridot, and Turquoise, are excellent for healing the heart and activating your Heart chakra, attracting love into your life, and allowing you to receive and give it in equal measure.
Remember, you cannot get it wrong when creating a crystal grid for yourself! Relax and enjoy the process, and you will reap untold benefits.
