Crystal Grids

Many people like to use crystals for healing and wellness of both the physical and spiritual kind. Whether you're working with crystals for a specific purpose, such as health or love, or for a general well-being ritual, you may find that placing your crystals in a grid-style layout can amplify their metaphysical power. 

If you have some serious manifesting to do and are looking to lock in an intention, it's definitely worth exploring the magical world of crystal grids.

Step 1: Choose an intention.

Intentions lie at the heart of any crystal grid. Write yours on a piece of paper, fold it up, and set it in the center of your display. Or, you can simply keep your intention in your thoughts as you create your grid.


Step 2: Choose your crystals.

Crystals hold a unique frequency that can inspire any space, person, or, in the case of crystal grids, intention, with a particular energy. 


Crystals to support abundance include:


For love or romance, choose crystals such as:

  • Rose quartz
  • Emerald
  • Clear quartz


For peace and serenity, go with:

  • Clear quartz
  • Amethyst
  • Moonstone
  • Malachite


For truth, purpose, and honest expression, pick crystals like:

  • Blue kyanite
  • Clear quartz
  • Emerald
  • Obsidian


Step 3: Decide on a sacred geometry.

Different sacred geometry grids hold different meanings, but most showcase the same themes you'll see in altars, temples, spiritual art, and spiritual architecture. Choose a shape that resonates with you, whether it's a spiral, infinity loop, the seed of life, a medicine wheel, a circle, or even a labyrinth. You can either print out your shape, take the time to draw it out, or buy a cloth with the shape printed on it.


Step 4: Get creating!

Once your intention is set, begin placing your chosen crystals down on the grid. Start from the outside of the shape and work your way in, keeping your intention in mind as you mindfully lay your crystals down. Once you have placed your last crystal—known as the master crystal—in the center of the grid, you are ready to connect and activate it. Use a clear quartz to connect the dots, starting from the outside and working your way in, passing over every crystal on the way. If you want to save your crystal grid, draw your shape onto a board and use wire to wrap around the crystal and through the board. A local framer can even frame it for you to ensure your intention stays safe, and no crystals are nudged out of place.
