Crystal Grid for Protection


Setting up a crystal grid in your home or workspace is easy and fun. When you are in need of a particular force or energy in your life, using a dedicated grid to help you manifest what you want is an excellent way to keep you focused.

The grid shown above is for Protection and uses Onyx, Citrine, Amethyst and Clear Quartz. 

  • As always, take the necessary steps to clear and cleanse the space in which you are going to set up your grid. 
  • Relax and prepare yourself through a breathing relaxation or calming meditation and set your intention to program the stones you will use.
  • Think about your intention as you hold each crystal and begin to lay them out in a geometric pattern of your choosing. 
  • Make sure you have a central cluster of stones or a main central stone that is ideally Clear Quartz. This crystal will be where you focus your main intention on. 
  • As this grid is for protection, be very specific about the type of protection you need at this moment. Is it from outside influences, another person or maybe even yourself and your own self-sabotage?
  • Close your eyes and imagine whatever you would like on this central master stone then thank your crystals for their help. 



Clear Quartz

Clear Quartz has the wonderful quality of absorbing intentions like a sponge. Place several small stones, or a larger piece of raw or polished Clear Quartz in the centre of your grid. As you position it, take a moment to reaffirm your intentions for protection and allow the thought energies to travel from your hand and into the stone.

Placing this crystal in the centre of your grid also has the added benefit of charging the other stones and amplifying their energies. Clear Quartz can protect your aura by dispersing negative energies and vibrations and blocking harmful emanations from electronic devices.


Radiating out from your central crystal, place pieces of Amethyst pointing in the four directions of the compass. Amethyst is a wonderfully protective stone for the emotions and the intellect. Ask that the crystals absorb and deflect negative messages from others, replacing them with loving, positive vibrations. You can also program Amethyst to help you to reorganize your own thoughts and the messages you send to yourself, protecting you from self-sabotage and negative self-talk.

Amethyst has a high spiritual vibration and is an extremely powerful and protective stone against psychic attack. It transmutes the energy into love, keeping you feeling safe and secure in the knowledge that your boundaries are in place and cannot be breached.


Citrine crystals come next, placed between the Amethyst stones. This joyful, creative, warming crystal protects your thoughts and emotions from pessimism and gloom. It is aligned with the solar Plexus chakra and can be called upon to protect your personal power and to bring you courage and strength. It is a good choice for protection against co-dependency and the neediness of other that may be sapping your power and energy.

Citrine is a powerful cleanser and regenerator. It is an extremely protective stone for the environment due to its ability to absorb, transmutes, dissipate, and ground negative energies. Citrine is one of those stones that never need cleansing and will absorb the vibrations of other crystals placed near to it, cleansing them of their negativity and restoring them to optimum efficiency.

Citrine is known as aura protector. Acting as an early warning system when yo need to take action to protect yourself. Psychologically, Citrine raises self-esteem and self-confidence and removes destructive tendencies, thus protecting you from yourself when necessary.


Onyx places on the outer edges of your grid offers strong protection against negative influences, energies, and entities. It reveals hidden truths in all situations and helps you to see where manipulation or control is in play in your life. Onyx protects your Base chakra and allows you to feel safe and secure in your material life.

Onyx is strength giving and provide support during difficult or confusing times. If you are asking for protection against physical or mental stress, Onyx provides you with the personal strength you need to be master of your own destiny.
Onyx also has the reputation of being a secretive stone, enabling you to keep your own counsel when this is necessary for the protection of your integrity. It is said to promote vigour, stamina and steadfastness and to encourage you to take note of the life lessons you learn so that you can be at ease in your surroundings.
Leave you Protection Grid up for seven days. Each day, take some time to meditate with it helping to refresh your intentions and desires.
