Today I am thrilled to share the basics of how to make Feng Shui Crystal Grids by a graduate of the Feng Shui School of Intention Professional Certification Program.
Julie Matters is an artist of the highest order, and her work with energy, nature, and this unique approach to Feng Shui is truly show-stopping. Since her graduation, I’ve been lucky to collaborate with Julie on projects, and this is one I’ve been wanting to share for so long: an introduction to crystal grids from her dynamic viewpoint and expertise.
There are so many things I love about crystal grids. First, they are a fabulous way to energize and truly supercharge your desires. They are beautiful. They are also an economical way bring massive amounts of crystal energy into your home. Small crystals are far less expensive that enormous crystal showpieces, yet when placed in a grid, they become so substantial in their impact. And, the entire process of making crystal grids can be both a meditation and a joy!
I’ll let Julie take it from here:
Crystal grids serve as a transformative tool, aligning with my spiritual journey and my desire to create beautiful spaces that resonate with one’s inner Tao or connection to home and life. I firmly believe that by harnessing our intention and loving kindness, we can manifest feelings of peace and love within our home, our life, and our universe.
Working with crystal grids is just one of the many creative ways to work with crystals. Over the years, I’ve been captivated by crystals using them for many different reasons and within my healing practice. In the last few years gridding them has been a massive creative spark that I am now sharing with you. I firmly believe that anyone can enhance their lives and work towards their desires and gridding is an intentional tool that has many benefits.
The grids I utilize are based on sacred geometry. You don’t necessarily need a predetermined pattern or grid; you can simply arrange your own pattern of crystals—this too forms a grid. Gridding enhances the power of the crystals as they interrelate and infuse with each other, creating a beautiful, strong, and intentional energy.
Crystal properties and their assistance span the physical, emotional, and spiritual planes. For example, black tourmaline is commonly used for grounding and protection. Even without prior knowledge, you might be intuitively drawn to it by its strong dark colour, evoking a sense of grounding.
While books can be valuable for researching crystal properties, I encourage you to trust your intuition. Choosing crystals based on your personal connection and feelings is often more impactful than adhering strictly to prescribed meanings.
The list of potential uses for crystal grids is diverse, determined by your creativity and intuition. Popular personal intentions include manifesting, abundance, health, love, letting go, healing, and gratitude. On a broader scale, crystals are employed for space clearing in practices like Feng Shui, Earth healing, and promoting world peace.
The Role of Meditation
Before setting your intention, it’s beneficial to engage in a short meditation, quietening your mind and connecting with your breath. Being grounded and centered, and genuinely connecting with your heart, prepares you for creating meaningful grids, driven by heartfelt intentions rather than obligation or external interpretations.
Creating Your Grid
Formulate an affirmation or intention statement as the focal point of your grid. Take a moment to contemplate what you wish to change, shift, assist, heal, or help today. Crafting intentions from the heart chakra, infused with loving kindness towards yourself and others, can have a profound impact. Ensure you place your crystals with intention, whether by silently affirming it or writing it down and positioning it beneath the crystal.
The most common approach to selecting crystals is to begin with one that embodies the overall theme or intention of your grid—this serves as the central stone or anchor stone. Next, choose several supporting stones that further define your primary purpose. Feel free to add as many other crystals as you like, keeping your intention at the forefront.
Enhancing Your Grid
Supporting crystals play a pivotal role in enhancing your central crystal’s intention. These crystals are selected based on their relationship to your central focus. For instance, if health is your primary concern, consider a crystal for strength to aid during times of illness or emotional turbulence.
Emotions and Grounding
If you’re setting a grid aimed at clearing emotions, I have found it’s essential to include a grounding crystal either on the grid or nearby. This is particularly helpful as you navigate the energy shifts that emotional clearing can trigger.
It’s beneficial to position your grid in a place where you feel peaceful and happy. Avoid cluttered tables or spaces associated with unpleasant memories, as the energy of your surroundings can greatly influences the effectiveness of your grid and your intention.
Adapting and Growing
Some suggest creating grids during specific moon phases or leaving them for defined periods. I like to take an approach aligned to your intuition. I believe that as you experience shifts and changes, you may outgrow your initial intention. In such cases, it’s perfectly acceptable to modify or recreate your grid. Embrace the possibilities and trust your intuition; you might surprise yourself. I often have several grids at one time, as I send healing for people when requested and family members, I sometimes change one crystal or add one as things evolve and some of my grids are only up for one or two days. I always thank my grid and crystals before I change it or put it away, always grateful.
Extra tips and suggestions:
–Re-intent or energize your grid daily.
–If you are going away or out for the day and you want to carry the energy of your grid with you, you can remove a crystal and have it with you to continue to feel that connection.
Remember, this is your grid and your intention; there are no right or wrong choices. Trust your intuition and inner guidance as you create magnificent intentional grids from your heart. Crystal grids are truly transformational and your possibilities are endless, believe and create magic.
