How to Make a Crystal Grid and Why You Should!

Crystal grids have been used for thousands of years. Crystal grids are used to make a group of crystals vibrate higher so their metaphysical properties are magnified.
Using crystal grids in your spiritual practice has many benefits – including deepening your meditation practice, cleansing your space, manifesting, and raising the vibration of your home.
Whether you are slightly familiar with crystals, use them every day, or have never even touched one, making a crystal grid is a fun, fulfilling, and meditative practice that can help you vibe high, connect deeply, and tap into your divine nature.

What are Crystal Grids?

Crystal grids are a group of crystals that have been arranged in a high vibrational geometric pattern. Sacred geometry patterns are believed to aid in magnifying the vibrations of the crystals – increasing their collection vibration and creating a potent force to make practical magic.
However, many people choose to make an ‘intuitive grid’ in any desired shape. The choice is yours to make, and the intention you place on the pattern and the crystals you’ve included is what’s most important.

How to Make Your Own Crystal Grid

Now that we’ve learned a bit about what crystal grids are, you’re ready to dive in and make your very own! Follow these simple steps to create your own crystal grid:

1. Find a space for your crystal grid that won’t be disturbed


2. Place your crystals on the grid

This is where your creativity and intuition come into play! Follow your intuition for placement of the crystals you’ve chosen to use. For the center crystal – also called the master crystal – it’s better to use a higher vibrational crystal like a quartz cluster. More on this in the next section

3. Wands out!

Once all the crystals are placed on the grid, use a selenite wand to connect each outer crystal to the master crystal, and gently place the wand on the outer edge of the grid

4. Cleanse the space

Sage the space to cleanse the energy and place your intention on the completed crystal grid
Congratulations – you made your first crystal grid! At any time if you feel the grid needs to be charged up you can simply reactivate it by cleansing the crystals.

How You Can Benefit from Crystal Grids

Crystal grids are a stellar way to deepen your meditation practice and strengthen your insight and intuition. Before you meditate, set up your crystal grid and activate it by setting your intention on the grid and inviting the crystals to join forces.
Smoke is a very cleansing element, and you can cleanse the grid with sage, palo santo, sandalwood, or sweetgrass. During your meditation, the grid will help you transcend to a higher vibrational frequency.

Cleanse + Charge a Sacred Space

Another wonderful way to absorb the benefits of crystal grids is to set up a grid close to your yoga or meditation space – or even in your office to keep the vibes high and your work flow flowing.
Crystals have different metaphysical properties so by using the crystals that resonate with you and align with your intention, you can raise your vibration.
