A crystal grid is a layout of crystals placed around a person, (in which you want to affect a change), or a place, (in which you want to maintain a vibration).
You might place a grid around a person for healing or protection. Grids can be placed around a room, a house, or property, for energy amplification, protection, positivity and shielding. Pets and plants may also benefit from crystal grids. Crystals are placed in a specific pattern surrounding the place, person, animal or plant in question.
Programming the crystals is necessary for your grid to work properly. (Click this link for a reminder on how to program a crystal.) You may choose to program them for any of the reasons I mentioned above. Again, the possibilities of uses for crystal grids are as limitless as your ideas, needs and desires.
I’m going to describe a few possibilities, and then you take that knowledge and use your imagination. The sky is the limit !
Intuition is of utmost importance in the process of gridding. If you simply feel, or know, that a particular crystal needs to be facing in a certain direction, or needs to be included in the grid, then by all means, listen to that guidance. You may be receiving it from your Higher Self, a Spirit Guide, or more likely, from the crystal itself. It may be that inner voice whispering, “pssst… hey buddy… pssssst… hey buddy! Put me this way or put me on that corner or put me next to this other guy.” Follow the guidance you are given. You don’t have to know why you are doing it, you don’t have to have this all planned out by degrees and angles and quadrants. Your gut is your best guide; listen to it.
You may select empathic crystals or intact crystals for placement in your grids. There are no rules about which types you must use. I tend to use empathic points and clusters if they are going to be somewhere that I’m not going to see them or have access to them. For example, I have empathic clusters built into the subfloor of my bedroom and buried around the property. The energy is still there and it is a great way to put the less aesthetically “beautiful” crystals to great use. I cringe because all crystal is beautiful and I feel like a skunk implying that this crystal might be more appropriate to put where you aren’t going to see it; that’s not my intent. I do know myself, however, and if I put a ten-inch optically clear channeling crystal in my subfloor, I might wish, at some point, that I had access to it so we could do some different work together. It would be wise to choose a crystal for gridding that you’re not going to want to take a pickaxe to the floor of your bedroom to get to at some later date.
You will need to periodically cleanse and reinforce your grids. I have talked about cleansing in a previous post, click here to refresh your memory. You won’t have to dig up your grid or tear up the floor of your bedroom; you simply touch in and intend that your grid is cleansed. This checking-in also reinforces the connection and keeps the grid running.
Let’s discuss specific ways to make a permanent grid. You can grid a room. If you are as lucky as I was, you might be present when a room is being built; this is when you can place your grid beneath the subfloor, making it much easier to sweep and vacuum later! If you have this beneath-the-floor opportunity, you may choose to place one crystal in each corner, or one right in the center of the room. You can put as many or as few as you want, as large or small as you have. You can use clusters, points or chunks, it doesn’t matter. Intent, as always, is paramount.
