How to Make a Crystal Grid


Crystal Grids are tools for empowerment, for blessings, for prosperity, for love, for healing, for creating a sacred space, and much more. They can be used for any intention, from the simple goal of "bring more money" to grand goals such as "heal the planet". Whatever your intention, the crystal grid is an effective use of crystal energy when done with your clean intention.

Grids are formed by making a geometric pattern with crystals, which can be tumbled stones, or natural rough stones. The pattern can be any design you like - a Star of David which is the most popular, a Reiki symbol, a pentagram or another symbol of your choosing.

A basic grid consists of 4, 5, 6, or 7 stones - 1 in the centre and the rest making the design.


  • Your mind must be very clear on what it is you want.

  • Choose one goal at a time and focus.

  • Write it down on a small slip of paper.

  • You will use this clear intention to charge the crystals and activate the Grid.

  • Decide on your geometric layout pattern and stones.

  • Decide on a place to set up the Grid where it can be left un-disturbed.

  • Know where the four directions are for your stone placement; West, North, East, South. Sweep the space clean with a broom, incense, bells/drums, a wand, a sprinkle of pure salt, a prayer, etc.

  • Dispel and banish energies which wish you "ill or nil" and invite in those who wish you "help and harmony".

  • Create your grid on a tray or board so it can be moved if needed.

  • Use a shallow pan filled with clean sand or even uncooked rice grains.

  • Devise it on paper first, then place the stones on the paper.

  • Hold your Centre Master Crystal in your hands and let your Intention flow into it.

  • Place it on the Grid. Put your written Intention under it. This is now "charged".

  • You may incorporate tumbled, rough or faceted stones to be centered around the "Master Crystal". This master crystal will act as the primary energy force for the grid

It is best to start at the 1 o'clock position stone and start weaving your hand or wand in and out to the centre stone, back to 3 o'clock and so on around the grid. As you draw the pattern make the necessary affirmation or chant a mantra.

  • Breathe and relax; incense or Aromatherapy is a good addition, as is music, but not necessary.

  • Focus on the centre stone. It’s the core of the grid. Try to connect with it, communicate with it, ask it to help you manifest your intention.

  • Visualise the Master Crystal glowing with your energy and the ally stones pulsing slowly, first one then the next. You may wish to use your Wand again for this part. See the "charge" flow faster and faster until the whole grid is activated and "humming".

  • Imagine your goal being met and accomplished

  • Be grateful; say a prayer of gratitude and slowly back away, leaving the grid to continue its purposeful work.
