Crystals have been used in many ways all throughout the ages and different cultures, from amulets for protection, elixirs for health and wellness, and mediums for the spiritual realm.
Today, the power of crystals can be harnessed by everyone, and you don’t have to be a shaman or a reiki healer in order to benefit from it. The most prominent way is through creating a crystal grid.
But how does a crystal grid work? And how can you benefit from it?
How To Create Crystal Grids For Manifesting
What Is A Crystal Grid?
A crystal grid represents the union of sacred geometry and crystals with the intention of manifesting your desires, dreams, and goals.
Sacred geometry is present in everything in this world. You can see it from the concentric marks of a tree trunk depicting its age, the genetic makeup of the human body, and the whorls of galaxies in the cosmos.
Likewise, crystals are also structured with the sacred geometry when seen on a microscopic level. Annie Dillard aptly stated this:
“Crystals grew inside rock like arithmetic flowers. They lengthened and spread, added plane to plane in an awed and perfect obedience to an absolute geometry that even stones – maybe only the stones – understood.”
When you make a crystal grid, you align the stones and crystals’ energy through sacred geometry. You then amplify it by your intentions and shooting it to the Universe.
How To Create Your Crystal Grid
There is no right or wrong way to set up your crystal grid. Follow your intuition and create it in a way that feels right and makes sense to you. However, to ensure that you can be guided, here are the steps that you need to do before you set up the grid.
Determine your intentions
What would you want to manifest? This is the first thing you should ask yourself before anything else. Remember, crystal grids shouldn’t be done just for aesthetic purposes!
You can harness the power of manifestation more aptly through crystal grids, so you have to choose what you currently desire. Do you want abundance? Protection? New beginnings? Love?
Whatever it may be, this will also determine the kinds of crystals that resonate with your intention.
Choose the right crystals
While most if not all crystals are perfect for manifesting, you should be able to know what kinds align well with your desires. Alongside this, you can choose crystals that complement each other very well.
For example, you want to manifest new love, so you choose Rose Quartz. However, if you solely create a Rose Quartz crystal grid, it may only be filled with passion. That is why to strengthen and root it; there is always Amethyst to accompany it.
Alongside this, if you desire to be more eloquent, you can choose Labradorite and then pair it with Chrysocolla or Moonstone to bring a sense of calm and confidence.
Here are just some of the different crystals depending on a specific intention:
- Tiger’s Eye
- Crystals for love
- Rose Quartz
III. Crystals for clarity
- Rutilated Quartz
- Clear Quartz
- Crystals for communication
- Lapis Lazuli
- Crystals for protection
- Red Jasper
These are just some of the crystals and specific intentions that you can use. If you want to learn more about other crystals and where they specifically resonate, you can check our Healing Crystals Guide so you can see a comprehensive list of these crystals.
Once you finally have the crystals that align with what you want, it’s time for the next step.
Cleanse your crystals
Before you use your crystal, you have to first cleanse them. There are multiple ways you can do this but the most universally accepted one is white light visualization.
You have to hold your crystal or crystals and imagine a white halo in your head slowly creeping down to your arms until they reach your hands and crystal.
Visualize this white light enveloping the crystals and slowly seeping in. This is a perfect method since it’s not as costly as smudging but is still effective.
Creating the crystal grid
There are four elements in a crystal grid: the central stone, surrounding stones, amplifiers, and focal objects.
- Central Stone
This stone is what you usually see at the center of the grid. It’s the largest or the one with the highest frequency. They act as a channel where you can project your intentions, and they amplify them to the Universe.
- Surrounding Stones
These stones are the ones that complement the central stone. They are usually arranged in a geometric shape. It can be a triangle, circle, or pentagon.
These stones act like satellites that support the central stone, which is the main channel. This makes the crystal grid more rooted and stable.
Amplifiers usually consist of the quartz family. These crystals can be positioned as an outer grid or placed alternately with the surrounding stones.
They are perfect for balancing the crystal grid and, like their name, amplifying the grid, making it foolproof. However, amplifiers don’t necessarily need to be there.
- Focal Object
Lastly, you can have a focal object. A focal object is an item that is related to your intentions. For example, if you want to attract wealth, you can place a dollar bill or coins as well with the grid.
This is only optional, however, and place an object that has significance.
Activating the crystal grid
Now that everything’s set up, it’s finally time for you to activate it. You can do this with a crystal wand, preferably a Selenite or Clear Quartz. However, you can just activate it with your hands.
First, come up with a clear and concise intention for your crystal grid. Then hover your hands or crystal wand on the grid and imagine a white light streaming from the central stone.
Visualize it in a way that you can manipulate it. Use your hands or wand to spread this white light as if you’re connecting the crystals together. Do all this while you repeat your intention.
Only stop when you feel like it is the right time. After activating your crystal grid, thank it and leave it for over 30 days or when the next moon cycle starts.
Make sure that it is in a place where you can’t easily disturb it. Alongside this, you can also meditate with the crystal every night before you go to bed or every day after you wake up.
Repeat this intention: “My energy is aligned with the intentions I have, and good things are happening to me each and every day.”
This will “refresh” the crystal grid as you interact with it every day.
Crystal grids are a creative method in harnessing the prowess of crystals. While we have offered you a guide on making one, you can always create a different kind of grid that resonates with you.
