4 crystal grids to promote wellness

So here's the thing: a lot of people have no idea what to do with their crystals. But crystals are amazing amulets to promote self-care, reminding you of your dedication to your health and wellness. They keep you accountable. They keep you on track. They can help train us to take our power back, taking control over the direction we want our health to go.

Are you a crystal collector but maybe a little unsure of what to do with your crystals other than carry them in your pocket? Crystal pairings are a great way to take the next step with your stones, learning about how their energy complements one another. Think of it as the stepping stone to finally building a crystal grid.

Crystal grids are a way to amplify a crystal's energetic healing properties, in order to adjust any dis-ease that could be living within you. Sometimes we are sending out a vibration that unknowingly repels a potential romantic partner, or we could be harbouring a lot of negativity within. Sometimes we're extremely stressed with no outlet to release our anxiety to. Crystal grids are a great way to direct energy into a person or space to quell a lot of these concerns, and I have four super easy grids that you can apply to your self-care rituals.

CRYSTAL GRID TO ATTRACT ROMANCE

Rose quartz + Garnet

Rose quartz is the eternal love stone, but when paired with Garnet it amplifies romantic love potential. Rose quartz can also be a self-love stone, so it's important to encourage true love, passion and commitment with another person, through Garnet's energy. When these stones come together, they're potent for romance!
 

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

1. Four pieces of tumbled Rose quartz
2. Four pieces of tumbled Garnet
3. A comfortable place to lay
4. 10-20 minutes of undisturbed meditation time

DIRECTIONS

Following the image above, place the eight stones around you in a rotating fashion so no single stone is next to the same variety. Place the Rose quartz above your head, below (and between) your feet and on the outside of each hip. 

Be sure to place the stones roughly a palm's length away from your body. You don't want the stones to actually touch you, but rather penetrate your auric field.

Anchor the tumbled Garnet below each foot (an erogenous zone), and on either side of your neck (another erogenous zone). This balances the crystalline energy evenly around your auric field while placing the sexual stones in erogenous zones.

Lie comfortably for 10 to 20 minutes (on your back) ensuring you are undisturbed. Breath comfortably and imagine the red and pink energy rippling through your aura, wrapping around your spine and filling up your body. Envision yourself in the state of what it would feel like to receive love. This would be a great grid to do before a date!

 

CRYSTAL GRID TO ABSORB NEGATIVITY

Black tourmaline

Black tourmaline is a great stone to use in personal rituals because it draws out negativity, trapping it within its core. This is important because once negativity is removed from you or a space - it needs to go somewhere. Because of this, it's important to cleanse Black tourmaline regularly. Due to its highly protective nature, when used in a crystal grid, Black tourmaline removes negativity and fills the void with protection.


Why should you do this grid? Sometimes we are feeling negative and pessimistic, or as if we are in a rut and we can't shake it. Sometimes, other people dump their energy onto us (especially if we're empathic) and we feel heavy or ill or tired. It's important to remove negativity, dis-ease or anxiety because it can manifest as illness.


WHAT YOU'LL NEED

1. Eight small pieces of Black tourmaline
2. A comfortable place to lay
3. 10-20 minutes of undisturbed meditation time

DIRECTIONS

Following the image above, place the eight stones around you. Black tourmaline is brittle and pieces often look like little shards. If there are any points on your Black tourmaline, be sure to direct the point away from your body. This is very important. When points are directed away from the body they pull energy out of the body. When they are directed toward the body they push energy into the body.

Place the Black tourmaline above your head, on either side of your neck, on the outside of each hip, below each foot, and below (and between) your feet. Be sure to place the stones roughly a palm's length away from your body. You don't want the stones to actually touch you but rather penetrate your auric field.

Lie comfortably for 10 to 20 minutes (on your back) ensuring you are undisturbed. Breath comfortably and imagine the negativity being pulled from your body. Envision it as a black smoke seeping out from your fingertips and toes, and becoming trapped within the Black tourmaline.
 

CRYSTAL GRID TO RELIEVE STRESS

Amethyst

Amethyst is an incredibly soothing stone - and also protective. It is linked to the dream world and becomes extra powerful when used at night. I would recommend building this crystal grid around your bed so it can deeply penetrate your aura throughout the entire night. For this grid, you don't need to worry so much about the stones being placed on the proper places around your body; your bed is the object being gridded in this case.

You can read an in-depth how-to here, but remember: place the points toward your body for this grid. When the points are directed toward the body, they push energy into the body. In this case, you are pushing the restorative, soothing, and healing Amethyst energy into your auric field - powerfully - over the entire night.

Upon waking, pick up the pieces of Amethyst and place them in a safe space. You can grid your bed as a bedtime ritual for as many nights as you need to. 


Note: pay attention to your dreams when your bed is gridded with Amethyst as they will be full of insightful messages since Amethyst is linked to the dream world. Don't be fooled: we are in fact very busy when we're asleep!


Are you feeling this anxiety reduction grid? Same.

You can purchase the Grace Collection in the supply shop! It's our crystal collection dedicated to reducing anxiety and stress. It comes cleansed and charged based on the current Prairie Polar Cleanse, that changes monthly, giving your stones an added moodlet!


PROGRAMMABLE CRYSTAL GRID FOR WHATEVER YOU NEED

Clear quartz

Clear quartz is easily attainable and it's also easily programmable. You can infuse Clear quartz with any attribute you want, such as motivation, self-love, focus, or something else, and use the charges as you need. When a stone is cleansed, the programming or charge is cleared away, so you could use a Clear quartz grid for any intention, and a different one the very next say (so long as you cleansed the stones).
 

WHAT YOU'LL NEED

1. Eight pieces of programmed Clear quartz points (learn how to program here)
2. A comfortable place to lay
3. 10-20 minutes of undisturbed meditation time

DIRECTIONS

Decide on your intention and program each individual stone with that intention. It is important that each stone in the grid holds the same intention, so try not to program them each with something different as you'll water down the effects of your grid. 

Depending on what you are programming your stones with, you will place the points accordingly. If you are hoping to infuse your aura with an attribute or quality, such as focus or determination, you will direct the points toward you. If you are trying to remove something from your aura, like negativity or thought patterns or habits that no longer serve you, direct the points away from the body to pull the energy out.

Following the image above, place the eight stones around you. Be sure to place the stones roughly a palm's length away from your body. You don't want the stones to actually touch you but rather penetrate your auric field.

Lie comfortably for 10 to 20 minutes (on your back) ensuring you are undisturbed. Breath comfortably and try to clear your thoughts as you relax and meditate with your intention.


DON'T HAVE A BUNCH OF THE SAME STONE?

That's OK. Check out the Odds and Ends grid that uses different stones that you may have in your collection.

It will teach you how to work with the stones you have based on complementary colours or energies that particular stones have.

If you're just beginning to build crystal grids, this is a great grid to start with as it isn't always realistic that you have four or eight of the same stone.

There are three free downloadable crystal grid guides available for you, too, to help get you started. Good luck!


NOTE: Always work with cleansed stones.
