Crystal Grids

I absolutely love crystals, stones, and geodes. I use them in my psychic and mediumship practice and let their high vibration wash over me during meditation, channeling, and even when I’m going to sleep. I firmly believe that the stones, some are millions of years old, can absolutely change the way we feel, how we handle stress and anxiety and hire our vibration. They can help to achieve connection with the spirit world and just so much more. Stones and crystals have a life of their own. Just as plants are alive so to our Crystals. And for the millions of different crystals out there, each one has a specific purpose to help us. Today I’d like to talk about Crystal grids and how combining high vibrational crystals and certain geometric patterns can create an incredible powerful source. Now if your novice, not to worry because you can start a crystal grid with readily available and inexpensive stones such as clear quartz, amethyst, and rose quartz. Clear quartz is a wonderful amplifier. It will boost the energy of the other stones around it. Amethyst, is a stone that reduces stress and anxiety, Has a calming affect on the body and is also a good aid in communicating with your higher self, angels/spirit guides and passed loved ones. Rose quartz, is known as the crystal of love. It is usually a light pink color, you can purchase them as a polished tumble stone, I myself like to work with raw Stones as much as possible. It’s definitely a preference so if raw is not your thing, used the polished ones. 😊 I like the feeling of the grittiness the natural state of the stone and not having it changed by human hands. There are plenty of wonderful crystal grids you can find on Google for free. Just download the image and print it out and stack your crystals the way you like. In the picture above I’m using the spiral, also known as the golden ratio. Fibonacci Spiral is a spiral that contains the golden ratio.  Which means that for every 1/4 turn the spiral makes, it gets wider or away from the origin by a factor of Phi (1.618) The spiral is a symbol of continual growth.  It represents Kundalini energy and spiritual development. I decided to use this to enhance my channeling and meditation I have used two Keystones which are the big blue Celestine in the middle and at the end of the spiral. Usually only one keystone is used but I felt intuitively to use two. It radiates all of that pure energy within and outward.

Looking at the grid I created, you’ll see the stones I used for the keystone is blue celestite. This stone is amazing for connecting with angels and past love ones aand heightening your vibration. Even though I placed the major celestite on the outside (at the end of the spiral) I placed the other one in the middle and I started from there. I went counter clockwise by placing second keystone in the middle and then the next stone that I added was clear quartz, after clear quartz I added amethyst, and in between each stone I have added a clear quartz which are wonderful amplifiers for this whole grid. So after amethyst, I used lapis lazuli and then amazonite. So if you look at it it is from the middle outwards, it is blue celestite, clear quartz, amethyst, clear quartz, lapis lazuli, clear quartz, Amazonite, clear quartz and so on all the way until I get to that outer keystone piece. I was also guided to add selenite to the other 3 corners outside the grid. You can take a look at my picture for this particular crystal grid and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask! I hope you have as much fun with crystals as I do and I will be doing more posts on the different high vibrational crystals that I come across. It’s just amazing what these stones and grids can do for you during meditation , mediumship or any other divinatory tool used in your practice.
