We all know and love the power we feel when we hold a crystal that resonates deeply with us. It’s like holding an old friend- we know it has our highest good in mind, and is working with us at all times. The uses of crystals for certain things that we need in that moment can feel refreshing and comforting, all wrapped into one little stone. When you put two stones together to amplify the vibrations for one specific purpose, it’s even more potent. When you lay crystals out on a grid, you have a whole network of crystals working and vibrating together. But, there’s more to it than that.
Crystal Grids: How do they work?
Well, let’s start with what is a crystal grid, anyway? According to Crystal Vaults, “A crystal grid is a predefined set of multiple crystals arranged in a harmonic sacred geometric relationship. This combination and arrangement of crystals works synergistic to converts and focuses the external energy which impinges upon it in a variety of forms (e.g. sound, light, electromagnetism) into a unified energy field tuned to a particular need or requirement. The unified energy field that is created allows for vibrational interactions of crystal energies with the aura, spirit, and mind of the human body consistent with the prescribed healing and wellness design. ” Or, for a simplified answer: “A crystal grid is an arrangement of crystals on a specific geometric shape that focuses the Universal Life Force in a particular way for a particular purpose.”
Crystal grids only look complicated, but in fact are incredibly easy to use. Starting from the very center of the grid, we place our Focus stone. This is the main stone of the grid, and one you want to choose carefully. Let’s say you’re making a grid to enhance your love life. Likely, you would want to place a rose quartz in the middle as the focus stone, which allows love to flow to and from you, and open your heart chakra. This stone will gather and focus the energy into a single point- and in this case, the point is to enhance your love life.
The stones directly outside of the focus stone are called the Way Stones. The way stones control the flow of energy from the focus stone. They can either amplify or moderate the flow of energy from the focus stone. In our example of enhancing the love life, we could add rhodonite. Rhodonite allows for past emotional healing, balances the emotions, and eliminate feelings of jealousy or hurt.
Next, outside of the way stones we have the Desire Stones. The desire stones represent the end path, the result we would like to achieve from our grid. In our love grid, adding Jade as the desire stone would be a wonderful choice. Jade is known to promote new love, enhance the charm of the user, and enhance and attract trust within a relationship. These are the desires of the heart- trust, comfort, and love.
The Path are the lines and designs of the grid- made in the designs of sacred geometry. These lines allow the energy from the focus stone to transfer down to the way and desire stones and to be amplified. “The Path is the energy conduit that draws on Sacred Geometry to align, transmit, and guide our energy to achieve our desires. The Path is the flow of energy in a particular grid design.”
A friend and fellow Instagrammer, @dammit_carol30, recently sent me a custom made moon-phase grid that couldn’t be more perfect, and I need to share it with you all! Made from hand carved wood, Amy carefully and beautifully burnt the moon phases and sacred geometry grid, with rough wood edging, allowing you to connect with the power of nature while focusing your intent. I could not have asked for a more perfect grid! I recently set up stones to facilitate healing as I have come down with the flu- and put my new, perfect, Super Seven stone as the focus stone. Amy is up and coming with her crystal grid making hobby, and she would love to extend it to all of you. She is now taking custom orders through her Instagram, and PayPal, and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org for all orders and design questions. You can order crystal grids anywhere, but having one made from someone who puts loving intent into each custom piece, made right from the nature in the backyard, is so much more special than ordering one from Amazon- and with the added bonus of shopping small, and helping out a small business owner like Amy.
