Witch Wednesdays ~ Crystal Grids
Crystal grids and healing sets are groups of stones that go together for a purpose. Sets of crystals and stones are used for ritual magical or spiritual crystal healing purposes or with Reiki. Some are generalized and others have specific purposes.
There are a number of ways to arrange crystals to achieve different results. The most simple way is to look at basic geometric shapes.
- The circle is a great shape for healing or protection.
- The square is great to use when you want to manifest something.
- The Triangle is a great one to use when you need to focus energy.
- The diamond shape is another great one for manifestation, but it’s a little more intense because you have the principal of as above so below in the shape.
- Rectangles are a good shape to use for grounding or stability.
- A very powerful shape is the star. It can be used for success, manifestation, balance, or to change a situation.
There is no set grouping of stones to use for a crystal grid. These are some suggestions, but the sky is the limit!
Some common stones to keep around for grid work are :
- Clear quartz
- Rose quartz
- Blue Kyanite
- Black Tourmaline
- Selenite is especially good because it acts as a generator or charger to increase the energy.
Setting up a crystal grid is simple and very fun. Repeating patterns of stones is a good way to create a current. Using a clear quartz enclosure with a large center stone for a particular energy is also another interesting way to set up a grid. Most of the time crystal grids remain stationary either on a flat surface or upon a person’s body when receiving healing. Symmetry and patterns are what help raise the energy and channel the current.
