Everyday in the store, I see people being drawn to the magnetic, beautiful, healing energy of crystals. Often, they load up on their favorite tumbles, clusters, or points, only to get home and wonder … what now? Maybe the crystals get set in a dish next to their bed or on their coffee table, and they stop to admire them from time to time, but beyond that, they’re never really sure what to do with them.
There are actually a multitude of ways you can put your crystals to good use holding space for your intentions, enhancing your life experience, and connecting you to deeper, brighter versions of yourself. But one of the most creative and fun, by far, is making crystal grids. Crystal grids are only just beginning to really register on most people’s radar, so the term may still be new to you. But if you google the words “crystal grid” a myriad of images will come up, and even some books and other products, like wooden templates.
Crystal grids employ crystals and stones along with sacred geometry and other items to create a sort of mandala to hold your intention. They can be extraordinary and elaborate, or exceedingly simple. You may be able to make one right now with the crystals you already have in your collection, or you may want to plan one for something special and purchase the stones for it that resonate the strongest with your desire. While the practice, and the premise behind it, are quite simple and basic, the potential for variation is vast and truly limitless.
While you can copy someone else’s grid or use a recipe in a book, I don’t recommend this approach because every person is bringing a unique energetic fingerprint to the table. How a stone or collection of crystals affects you may vary, sometimes drastically, from how it affects another person. And it is through the act of creation itself that we truly step into our power and ground the visions that allow us to manifest our deepest, heartfelt desires. Instead, I feel it’s important to understand the principles behind crystal grids, so you can easily construct your own for any intention that may arise.
Join me this Saturday from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm at Body Mind & Soul for my popular class, Crystal Grids: What They Are and How to Use Them. In it, we’ll explore all the ins and outs of building and keeping crystal grids, including how crystal grids employ sacred geometry, how you can easily build your own grids, how to choose and combine crystals for the best results, and so much more.
