Instructions for Using a Crystal Grid

Posted by Mira Healy on

The most important thing to remember when you are about to set a crystal grid, is to set your intentions. The greatest thing about crystal grids is you can use them to manifest almost all your dreams!

Before you shake, rattle and roll with your grid….

What are you trying to manifest with your crystal grid?

Sometimes, we haven't spent enough time really diving deep into what we REALLY want. "Be careful what you wish for" they always say (as do I to the kids!). Spend most of your time Googling here to fully understand ‘the problem’ you’re trying to solve. You have to take the time to find the REAL REASONS behind your behaviour, expectations, and intents & then approach it from that angle. There are no right or wrong answers, do whatever resonates with you the most.

First, be sure you have properly cleansed your crystals. My favourite ways are sound acoustics or simply leaving them out in the new or full moon for a couple of hours. BUT!! It’s very important that YOU do this yourself and put your own energy into it.

After you've cleansed your crystals, you’ll want to create or clean your sacred space of all negativity and of course dust and clutter! When that’s done you may meditate or do what it takes to put yourself into a relaxed calm state (I’ll inject here, make sure the kids are sleeping and the dog is out, cause they are all going to want to see what mums doing, Oh that goes for hubby too!)

Ok, that done the next thing is to respectfully place your crystals on your grid, preferably clockwise. You can start anywhere however, place your centre crystal LAST.

Grid Components

In order to create your crystal grid, you will need several items.

Firstly, you will need your centre stone. I feel that you should always have a centre crystal on your grid. Because ...once you put it all together, there's a torus of energy around your crystal grid; um like a virtual “doughnut” of energy that kind of revolves around a central axis, which is your centre stone! This piece will be your all-important communicator acting as the broadcaster for your grid’s intentions, sort of like a radio
transmission tower. Therefore, I feel it’s really important that your centre stone is the biggest and most prominent piece in your grid.

Okay, I know some people choose to add other things to help with their intentions in their grid. Like adding a mirror, to enhance the crystals. You can place it anywhere or even under your centre stone or entire grid!

Place your grid in your sacred space, but make sure your kids or pet don’t bump it or if you’ve got a cat let her tear it apart and play with the crystals… I’ve seen that happen too! Also, maybe you would like to place some candles there like I have in my grid, it makes the energy there even more powerful, oh I forgot you can also burn some incense or essential oils too.

Next, you’ll need an activation wand. This is a crystal wand (no, not like Harry Potters!) that you will use to direct your intentions and energy into the grid. The wand acts like a light to sort of ‘turn it on’. Really all it is an extension of your auric energy mixed with its own energy that allows you to send your intention into your grid.

So, what you have to do now is grab your activation wand in your dominant hand and you will be using it to connect your crystals with YOUR intention. To activate the grid, you need an affirmation, kinda like a very short, very positive sentence, to the point of what you want your grid to do, just be sure you state your affirmation in a positive way.

For example: Instead of saying “I won’t be so hard on myself, or kick myself in the butt any more” you can say something like (I know it sounds corny, but it really does work) “Through self-respect and motivation, I am going to manifest my dreams”

Then with your wand in your hand point it at the centre stone and in your mind, imagine a light of energy beaming from say your tummy and out your hand to the tip of the wand and into your centre stone. Then move your wand from your centre stone (you won’t actually touch the stones at all) to the one above it and then the next one etc almost like your drawing the picture in the connect the dots. What you’re doing here is linking up the energy from one stone to the next. I would say to you to go in a clockwise direction, BUT remember you will be chanting your affirmation the whole time you’re doing this. I’m sorry to go on and on, I’m up to page 3! And it seems like.. OMG what have I got myself into, but it’s really not that hard or time consuming, the most time you will need to sacrifice is working on your intention like Albert Einstein said, "If I had an hour to save the world, I would spend 59 minutes defining the problem and one minute finding the solutions."

When you’re done, step but and feel the feelings, use all your emotions to really absorb what it will be like when your intentions become a reality!
