What Is A Crystal Grid?

Consider what it would be like if you could increase the power of your crystals. 'There is strength in numbers,' as the phrase goes, and your crystal collection is no exception. Although working with crystals on their own is a magical activity, there could be occasions when you feel your crystal might need a boost. This is where crystal grids are helpful. 🔮

The essence of a crystal grid is to combine different crystals and put them in beautiful patterns or grids to magnify and expand the collective energy of the crystals. When used correctly, crystal grids can help increase the effectiveness of your crystals.

What Are Crystal Grids Used For?

Along with their visually attractive form, it's common to imagine crystal grids only act for decorative purposes. On the other hand, gridding with crystals needs a basic understanding of the crystal world and divine geometry. So while the grids appear to be lovely, they are organised in a well-thought-out manner to achieve a particular goal. 🎯

The crystals and the underlying grid are chosen with care to produce a unifying field of energy to achieve a specific objective or intention. Not only does the type of crystal matter, but so do the form, colour, and size of the crystal. Therefore, if you want your crystal grids to succeed, you must first identify which crystals to work with, how to mix such crystals, and what grid to use.

Placing specific crystals on sacred geometry grids may help you benefit from connecting and amplifying specific universal energies. You can start building your own crystal grids after you grasp the different grids, the power they represent, and the vibration of particular stones individually and collectively.

How to Build Crystal Grids

Crystal grids are composed of a wide range of components. Therefore, it's vital to consider the different grid elements and how they work together if you want your grid to perform at its best.

Consider the grid as an energetic channel that connects the frequencies of the individual crystals placed on it. This flow of energy takes a specific direction that we have chosen since it assists us in aligning with and manifesting our desires.

So, here are a few ways to make your own crystal grid:

1) Define your intention

To design a crystal grid, you must first have a definite purpose of what you intend to accomplish through it. Since each grid pattern and crystal has its own energetic power, be detailed about what you want. Then, it will be easier to choose the correct grid geometry and crystals for your intention. Remember that the more precisely you can express your objective, the more effective your grid will be. 😉

It's also essential to clarify your purpose in the 'I am' statement. It means that you should state it as though it has already happened. So, for example, instead of saying, "I want to be wealthy," try saying, "I am rich, and abundance comes to me every day."

2) Select your grid design and visual

There are numerous possible grids to choose from, and you are welcome to use any of them. So, we've included a list below of the most common grid forms and their applications for your reference.

For this step, you can write your intention on a piece of paper, or you can work with an image or photograph that depicts your intended outcome. Remember, there are no right or wrong images. Instead, choose the one that genuinely reflects your desired result and enables you to connect with its emotion.

3) Choose your 'focus' stone

The primary crystal in the centre of your grid is called the focus stone. This crystal is supposed to focus and bring energy into your grid to make sure it matches your ultimate purpose. 🙏🏼

4) Pick your 'desire' stones

The desired stones are placed on the grid's outside edge, harmonising and dispersing the grid's total energy. So, for example, if you want to have a flow of abundance in your life, select stones that will fit and boost the overall vibration of your purpose. 🔮

5) Choose the location for your grid

One thing to consider on where to place your grid is to identify the dominant energy in each possible location. Then, using the previous example of establishing a grid to attract abundance into your lives, you can think about putting your grid in your office or near your desk. Tip: Ideally, your grid should be placed near a window to expose the crystals to sunlight. ☀️

6) Cleanse and charge your crystals

Before starting the gridding, it's essential to ensure the crystals you're working with have been cleansed and charged correctly. If you're not sure how to take care of your crystals, follow the methods given on how to charge and cleanse crystals. ✨

7) Put the grid and crystals together

In this step, you can start placing the crystals on the grid when the grid is already in your preferred area. Work your way outwards from the focus crystal; feel the energy flow on each crystal. You might want to concentrate on your intention and/or visuals through this moment. 🧘🏼‍♀️

8) Activate Your Crystal Grid

Activation is the final phase in the creation of your crystal grid. This phase ultimately completes your grid and lets energy flow through it in the most effective way possible.

To start, visualise a flow of universal energy pouring down through your focal or centre crystal. Next, imagine the power tracing the grid's outline and connecting all its stones. You may either visualise tracing the grid with your fingers or just following the pattern of the grid with your mind's eye. Once you've outlined the entire grid, repeat your purpose again and attempt to imagine your chosen outcome manifesting as vividly as possible. 

Once your crystal grid is activated, you shouldn't leave your grid in place for an extended time. Crystals are sensitive to energy and absorb it from you and your surroundings. If you haven't cleansed your crystal grid for a long time, it may become blocked and ineffective. Instead, use a White Sage Smudge Stick, Palo Santo, or other cleansing incense stick (like Sandalwood, Sage or Frankincense).
