What is a crystal grid?
A crystal grid is a geometric pattern of crystals used for healing, manifesting, and increasing the vibrations in your space.
Crystal grids come in many shapes, sizes, and variations, but they generally follow the same format: a crystal is placed at each corner of an imaginary grid pattern; additional crystals are placed along the lines that connect the corners.
Usually, they are created using quartz crystal points or tumbled stones such as amethyst, obsidian, rose quartz, although other types of crystals can also be used.
What are the benefits of a crystal grid?
While there are many benefits of a crystal grid, some of the most significant have to do with cleansing and energizing your environment:
• Cleanses and energizes your environment.
• Recharges you with positive vibes.
• Creates a high-vibing space for you to live in.
• Makes it easier to manifest what you want.
• Repatterns the energy in your home.
• Crystal grid can help you cut cords to those who are no longer serving you, be it people or negative energies.
Tools for creating your crystal grid
Crystals – To create a crystal grid, you’ll need the original center stone or point (a quartz crystal works well) and smaller crystals that align with your intention. You’ll also need an activation object – clear quartz points work best for this too.
Location – Determine where you want to set up your crystal grid to optimize positive energy flow.
Intention – Start by writing your intention on a piece of paper. Make sure to write it in bold, legible letters.
Crystal Grid – While many templates are available, feel free to draw your own on special paper or wood. You can find templates online and print them out.
Candles & Energy Tools (optional) – Feel free to surround your grid with any kind of object that brings the right energy into the work.
What crystals should you use in your crystal grid?
The crystal grid is meant to help you manifest something in your life, so the crystals you use must be aligned with what you want.
Clear quartz: Crystal grids using clear quartz points have bright and powerful energy because they act as transmitters of information. Clear quartz can amplify whatever energy or intention you place within it. Cleanse your clear quartz crystals regularly in the moonlight for increased effectiveness.
Rose Quartz: For love-related purposes, rose quartz has an incredibly high vibration, so it’s popular for crystal healing. You will find rose quartz often used in crystal grids to bring love into your life or strengthen existing relationships. Crystal grids using rose quartz are also suitable for getting more creativity into your life because of the element of love and romance that come with it.
Rose quartz may also be used to bring more peace into your life if you are feeling stressed out from work or other parts of your life. Rose quartz can be very calming when placed in a crystal grid near your bedside table.
Pink Tourmaline and Black Tourmaline: Crystal grids using pink tourmaline are often used to help banish bad luck (which is why many people use them during gambling) or to protect against the energy that’s coming at you.
Crystal grids containing black tourmaline are frequently used for protection because they help dissipate whatever negative energy targets you. Crystal grids using pink tourmaline or black tourmaline aim to keep these two types of dark or negative energy from reaching you.
Tiger’s Eye: Crystal grids containing tiger’s eye have an excellent grounding effect, which is why they are often used in crystal healing to relieve stress or anxiety. Crystal grid work containing this beautiful yellow and brownstone aims to lessen your anxieties while also bringing practical solutions into your life. Crystal grids using tiger’s eye may also be placed near a bedside table to help bring more luck (or money) into your life so that you can expand upon the good things in it rather than focusing on what you don’t have.
Rhodochrosite: Crystal grids made with rhodochrosite aim to provide comfort and support during times of grief or instability within relationships or friendships. Crystal grid work with rhodochrosite is often used to provide support during times of loss or tragic events and can be placed near the bedside table. Crystal grids made using rhodochrosite may also be helpful for those in a challenging time within their relationship.
Rhodonite: Crystal grid work with rhodonite aims to bring more creativity into your life — whether it’s creating art, writing books, or learning how to paint.
Crystal grids containing rhodonite are popular among crystal healers who use them very frequently to help others become more confident in themselves.
How to make your own healing crystal grid:
Step 1: Set your intention
Before you get started, it’s essential to set your intention for the crystal grid.
Crystal grids are effective in shifting energy and creating change. They can help you clear negative thought patterns and feelings while helping you bring more of what you want into your life.
The power of a crystal grid comes from its design, so make sure that when creating your own healing crystal grid, you also create an affirmation about how you would like your life to be different or what you would like to manifest (like money or a relationship).
Crystal grids can help bring to life the seeds of what’s already inside you.
So make sure that what you say is in alignment with how you want to feel, and if possible, try writing it down.
Conversely, it’s also important not to state anything negative or doubtful, or out of alignment with your desired results.
Step 2: Pick a grid shape
Each shape carries different energy so it’s crucial to choose a shape that resonates with you.
For example, a grid-shaped like the number 8 or infinity symbol is often used for manifesting money and abundance, while a triangle crystal grid will help clear negative thoughts and energies.
In general, I suggest using a five-pointed star as it brings in universal energy, spiritual healing, and good luck.
A six-pointed star also works but focuses more on physical healing than a five-pointed star.
Crystal grids can be made of any size — from one small corner of your room to an entire table.
Step 3: Choose your stones
When choosing crystals, ensure you select those with the properties that align with your intention.
• For love: rose quartz, pink tourmaline, amethyst.
• For money and abundance: clear quartz points, citrine crystal points, labradorite tumbled stones.
• To attract more of what you want into your life: chiastolite tumbled stones.
• To clear negative energies: hematite tumbled stones.
• For protection and grounding: black onyx, amethyst.
Step 4: Arrange the crystals
Once you have chosen the stones, take them out and arrange them in a pattern.
There are hundreds of examples of sacred geometry out there, so experiment with different shapes and patterns.
Cleanse your workspace by smudging or sprinkling sea salt around the perimeter.
Use an even number of crystals on each side of the grid to maintain the symmetry of the design.
You can draw or paint your grid design on paper, cloth, or wood, but you don’t necessarily have to have the lines in front of you.
Although they are not technically crystals, I like to place ritual candles in the grid with my crystal points so that by lighting the candle, I’m setting a sacred space for the crystal grid work to take place.
Do what feels most natural to you.
Step 5: Activate your grid
Now that you have created your grid, it’s time to activate it. This means stating your intention aloud to show the universe that you are serious about what you want.
Make sure to feel and believe in your heart what it is that you are stating. If you don’t, the crystal grid will not be as effective.
Step 6: Seal the grid
After you have invoked your crystal grid, you must seal the grid’s energy.
To do this, I suggest smudging or sprinkling sea salt around the grid’s perimeter to clear and protect.
Finally, you can go ahead and light your candles to set a sacred space for crystal grid work.
Smudge yourself with sage or sweetgrass before starting your crystal grid session to get rid of any negative energies that may have come from other people being in contact with you during the day.
Take a moment to breathe deeply while concentrating on your intention one more time — making sure it’s aligned with how you want your life to be different.
Close your eyes and imagine that everything you are picturing is already happening in your life.
Now your crystal grid is ready!
