Making and Activating a Crystal Grid



First, plan your grid, see MY BLOG POST – “Introduction to Crystal Grids”.

Choose your stones

You need a central focus stone and stones for the “outside” of the grid.

Think about the central stone holding your intention for the grid. The outer stones will either be to support your goals or amplify your intention.

You may have more than one type of stone but try to keep consistency. For example, if you are making a grid with a centre stone and six lines radiating from it, each line might contain three different stones, but the same stones could be used in each line. (This isn’t important if you are making and free-shaped or intuitive grid).

A point or wand is also commonly used and useful for activation.

However, you can use your finger or a candle for this (blow it out first).

Connect with your stones

First make sure you are grounded and protected. Take your cleansed centre stone and your point or wand. Hold them next to your heart and imbue them with your intention for the grid. It doesn’t matter what words you use, but use love and gratitude. For example “Thank you for working with me to: (manifest, send healing to, etc). I will work with this grid with love and gratitude.” And send energy out from your heart chakra to the stones.

Breathe deeply and with focus and intention, place your centre stone in the grid and your wand to the side. If you wish to place a written intention or photograph under the centre stone you can do so. Or you can place it nearby or hold in your heart.

Repeat with your other stones, in groups of the same type.

If you need to adjust the position of your stones once you have placed them, that’s fine.

Activate your grid

Taking your wand or point (or candle or finger), touch the centre stone, and then creating and energetic  line, touch each stone in the grid and then back to the centre.

Finally, complete a circuit of the overall shape of the grid and then back to the centre.

Repeat three times or more or less, as you feel drawn.

As always, your intention and intuition are the most important things. These instructions are a guideline only, you can’t “make a mistake” by touching the stones in a different order.

Let your grid do its work

Leave it in position as long as you feel drawn, but usually at least 24 hours.

Connect with it regularly, just look at it and send love to the grid and to your intention. You can send Reiki to the gird, or other energy modalities. You can use your wand to re-activate if you wish, or not. See how you feel, you will know the right thing to do.

Self Healing with Crystals


Self Healing with Crystals

Find a quiet spot and allow yourself “enough” time. Don’t feel overwhelmed by this, you can and should practise self-care and it is not selfish to allocate time. However, if you are in a funk and feeling stressed and time-poor, this is an exercise that can be done in only five minutes. As a reward, pop yourself in your own diary to do it again in a day or week.

Select one or more general healing crystals or select the crystals you want for the specific issue you want to improve. Clear quartz is ideal for general healing and so is amethyst. Amethyst can also be used to assist with habit or addiction issues and sleep problems.

Sit comfortably with your feet flat on the ground, holding your crystals. Or, lie down and either hold your crystals or place them on your body.

Focus on your breathing and gradually begin to take slightly slower and deeper breaths, as long as you are comfortable.

For general healing, simply visualise any negative or unwanted energies, toxins, thoughts or emotions gently leaving your body. If it is a specific issue, such as a virus or addiction you can focus on that leaving you gently.  Repeat an affirmation to support your healing. For example:

I am healthy and well.

I accept, love and honour myself.

I am worthy of love and peace.

You can, of course, choose your own.

After your allotted time, gently bring yourself back to the day/night and thank your crystals and yourself for this care. Make sure to book in with yourself to do this again soon, and make a note of when you did it and note any positive changes in the days ahead.
