Guide to Crystal Grids

Crystal Grids are an incredibly powerful and beautiful way to manifest your intentions. They are also powerful healing tools. 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. If you would like it to come to fruition, it is best to focus on manifesting a need vs a want.

Crystal Grids can be used in a variety of ways: in healing, manifesting, ritual work, meditation, intention setting practices or simply as a creative endeavor.

When it comes to crystal grids, there may be many different guides on how best to do them, but I find the most powerful healing and manifesting comes when you go with your intuition. Some people create crystal grids on a cloth, board, 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, shells, or flowers in their grid. Don't let a lack of crystals stop you!

Many people pick crystals based on the properties that are aligned with what they would like to manifest. Others will intuitively choose what crystals to work with. If you don't have a lot to choose from, don't worry. You can still work with what you've got, it is the setting of your own intentions that is most powerful.

The possibilities are endless, and it is really important to trust in your own intuition when creating your crystal grid.

Activating your Crystal Grid

To activate a grid once it has been laid, use a crystal wand or the power of your mind to join up all the points, including the keystone. If the grid does not have connecting lines to each crystal, take the wand (or your mind) into the central point and out again, touching each crystal in turn and weaving the energy into being. Finally, place the wand on the keystone and restate your intention.

Keeping your Crystal Grid active

Some grids, like protective or transmuting, need daily checking, while outdoor grids or those set to attract abundance can happily be left alone for a week. To keep your grid active, restate your intention, cleanse the crystals if necessary, and remove or add further crystals if appropriate. But don't interfere with your grid too frequently, or you won't really give it a chance to work.

Maintain your Crystal Grid

Don't forget to cleanse your crystals frequently to remove stagnant or unwanted energies. The easiest and safest methods include:

  • Smudging with incense, sage, or Palo Santo
  • The use of Singing Bowls
  • You can use running water, moon, or sun - but you need to be careful with these methods as they are not suitable for all crystals.
